John Swinney calls for the people to dictate the political debate

At least that should have been the headline if they BBC weren’t so biased. Instead the lead with “Gordon Brown calls for Scottish politics to be ‘reset’.” In the piece the Big Beast allegedly “asked the SNP to explain how it will use the extra powers to be devolved to Scotland. In case he hasn’t noticed, NO POWERS HAVE BEEN DEVOLVED YET! How can anyone say how they will use powers which they may or may not get?

The King o’ Fife also allegedly said to the BBC, “Scottish politics has got to reset and Labour is pressing the reset button.” Now why would he say this? Is it because he thinks that the people of Scotland are like a computer? Press the reset button and all is forgotten and forgiven? I think not Gordie. The people of Scotland will never forget the way that Labour stood with the Tories and lied, bluffed and intimidated them. That is why they face electoral carnage in the general election and subsequently in the Scottish parliamentary elections. That is why he is standing down as an MP, because he is a coward. He is feart he will lose his seat to the SNP or some other pro-independence candidate. He also allegedly said, “The focus has got to move from the constitution to economic change.” Why is that then?

As the Deputy First Minister succinctly put it, “It is not for Gordon Brown, or any politician or party, to presume to dictate what the terms of political debate in Scotland should be – that is up to the people as it always should be, and they will have their say at the ballot box in May. Gordon Brown and the Labour leadership stood shoulder to shoulder with the Tories in the No campaign and now know they face paying a very high electoral price for that. It says it all that this speech was to a room full of Labour councillors – once again, Labour are having conversations with themselves and not with the ordinary people they claim to represent.”

The Big Beast’s Wee Debate

One week from today the Big Beast o Labour, Gordie Broon, is holding his well publicised debate in the House of Commons which was part of the much vaunted “Vow”. Our lords and masters in Westminster have set aside valuable commons time in order to fulfil this part of their promise to the people of Scotland. The subject of the debate is the “UK Government’s relationship with Scotland,” and the debate is sponsored by none other than the Right Honourable Gordon Brown MP. The debate will be held at 6pm next Thursday and I for one will be watching it on catch up TV.

But, there had to be a but didn’t there,? But the debate will be held at the end of the commons business for the day. It is a so called “Adjournment Debate“, this is a type of debate which allows “backbench MPs to raise constituency issues or other matters relating to government administration or policy”. But, there’s that word again, there will be NO VOTE. Just a wee chat over the mace, that’s all. Here’s another but, the debate will last for a whole HALF HOUR! Yes, you read that right, 30 minutes to discuss Westminster’s relationship with Scotland then it’s off the club for a spot of dinner on expenses. I’ll bet most of our MPs will already be there before the debate begins.

So that’s all we’re worth to Westminster. 1.6 million Scottish people voted for Independence, countless more voted against after being told that there would be more powers, delivered to a timetable, and all we’re worth is half an hour. Gordie Broon could fill that time with endless waffle himself. So what chance do we have of getting any meaningful powers?
