  1. "Jim Murphy is a proven winner" - John McTernan The whole article is a goldmine of schadenfreude. http://www.scotsman.com/news/john-mcternan-jim-murphy-is-a-proven-winner-1-3589554 Bonus extract:
  2. ISIS fighters must get knackered out, doing a full shift at an oil refinery or at a derrick, then going out to do battle as well. Plus all the murdering. Must be utterly exhausting. Unless it's civillians that work on the oil fields we're bombing... But that can't be right, can it?
  3. Peter Oborne made a decent wee documentary for Dispatches about the influence of the Israel lobby. It's up on Youtube. Worth a watch, but it's Youtube, so you have to ignore the comments underneath. It bothered me during the Liam Fox scandal when it came out that both Fox/Werrity and Jim Murphy (as Shadow Defence Sec) had been regularly palling around with the Britain Israel Communications and Research Centre (BICOM).
  4. “Scottish Labour will abolish the failed Scottish Labour.” - SLAB manifesto 2011 "I don't believe the SNP will take a single seat from Labour in 2015. You'll get good odds on that." - George Galloway "Alex Salmond is soon to be yesterday's man" - Jim Murphy
  5. There was a post on Labour Hame that called the Named Person legislation an "attack on the working class." When it was pointed out by a commenter that the policy for "named person(s)" was first proposed in 2004, when Labour were in power at Holyrood, in a document called "Protecting Children and Young People: The Charter", a deep silence fell. http://www.gov.scot/Publications/2004/04/19082/34410
  6. We must establish a Greater Kurdistan stretching from the Caspian Sea to the Golan Heights. It's the only way to be sure. Only joking Erdogan, dinnae fash yersel.
  7. We have a choice. Should we trust the people who got their oil price projections wrong last year, or the people who have consistently and deliberately lied about oil revenues for the last 35? http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/4238744.stm
  8. Turns out Salmond was meeting with servicemen and veterans at an event organized by the War Memorials Trust while Cameron was making his statement on Syria. Y does he hate are brave boys, eh? You would literally still be a British citizen. The UK Government conceded this was the case during the ref (after a few months of Better Together saying the opposite).
  9. Jeremy Corbyn won't be another Michael Foot. Scotland voted for Michael Foot.
  10. We've also learned that Jeremy Corbyn is an antisemitic, IRA-loving, Hamas-worshipping, Hezbollah-fellating Stalinist, who is an unconscionable danger to Britain - yet he's sat on the Labour benches for the past 32 years. They don't do themselves any favours do they?
  11. You're a Labour man through and through Terry.
  12. Pretty sure I had Dennis Goldie himself at the door. Didn't recognise him at the time, or realise who it was till later. It was the first time he'd been to the door obviously - probably the first time he's been out campaigning personally in twenty-odd years. To his credit, he was out there on his tod, and at least trying - I know myself that this is not a great area to go around chapping random doors. He asked if I was voting Labour, and I splaffed on for about two seconds about Eric Joyce and the selection process debacle that Labour had just undergone. He said: "Yer no a Nationalist are ye?" I said: "Aye, I am." That was it. He made no effort to persuade me back to Labour or the Union or anything (it wouldn't have worked anyway) and just said thanks for your time. Then he was off. Labour activists spent many decades doing their best to ensure that SNP (and Tory) canvassers would receive an openly hostile reception at the doorstep, and were not above using sectarian lies and sickening smears to achieve this, so it's hard to feel much pity for them now. As ye sow, so shall ye reap.
  13. Not too sure about that... "When asked if other politicians hired escorts, he {Lord Sewel} replied: “I think there’s all sorts of things going on. Not in a great way – not with women. “I think the real problem is with, you know, erm… boys.”" http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2015/07/28/lord-sewel-told-prostitute-the-real-problem-is-politicians-with-boys/ --- It's terrible if an innocent man's name is being dragged through the mud when he's dead and unable to defend himself, but Heath's name has been associated with these kinds of stories for decades now. It might do his legacy some good to have them cleared up once and for all, one way or the other.
  14. I was going by what Dee said - "the only person arrested was the person who was campaigning on the issue." That had to be Robert Green. I doubt BT would've used this either, even though lack of evidence didn't seem to bother them on other claims.
