Labour targets Scotland votes - your views online
Labour party cannot form a majority government without winning back seats in Scotland at next UK general election, Scottish Fabians report finds
But not the Tories, of course. Oh no. The English National party can do what it likes and Labour up here will work as their handy enablers and minions. Joined at the hip politically they are.
There are 533 MPs in England alone and only 59 in Scotland. To form a majority government in Westminster you need 326 MPs or more. It’s one of the main reasons independence is so popular due to this massive democracy deficit.
Despite the X per cent of separatists voting for indy parties come what may, many will realise there’s no economic benefit to independence, so will switch to Labour. I’m fine with that.
All of Scotland could vote Labour and it wouldn't change things because England would also need to vote for them. Look how many times in history Scotland hasn't had the UK government it voted for despite voting red. Wouldn't want to upset their Tory pals by saying that though.
Labour needs to go back to being an actual Labourparty for the working man and woman. No matter what party it is these days, they are all just greedy Eton-educated and speak for no one except the rich to benefit themselves.
Labour party was born from workers who came back from the wars and looked after workers’ rights. Grassroots gone when in bed with the Tories. Simple.
They can if they admit that the Scottish seats are out of bounds and go for middle England. The Tories have done this since Thatcher and still they don't need seats outside England to get into power.

Anas Sarwar is effectively a red Tory prepared to do deals with tartan Tories. He is a capitalist and a democracy denier. Labour is dead as is the union. Full stop. Total hypocrite celebrating India's right to self determination but not Scotland's, despite successive democratic mandates at wastemonster and Holyrood.
