The Better Together Shop - Labour Devo Policy day

Electorate: This is the Better Together Shop?

Ms Lamont: Indeed it is, sir what can I do for you today?

Elec: Do you have any Labour Scottish Region Devolution Policies?

Ms Lamont: None, sir, none at all!

Elec: No polices at all?

Ms Lamont: Not much call for them around here, sir, in Labour's Scottish Region. The Better Together Shop just sells look alike Tory Policies in London Labour wrappers.

Elec: Surely you have a policy for what happens on a 'No' vote?

Ms Lamont: Nope! We will wait for head office to send us some.

Elec: What about on a Yes vote?

Ms Lamont: I'll have a look, sir, Your in luck, here's one on Rudolph Hess.

Elec: I said 'Yes' ....

Ms Lamont: Mr Murphy says there is no need for a policy on a Yes vote because he is going to ensure it never happens ...

Elec: So you are, in fact, screwed; are you not?

Ms Lamont: Not if we keep saying a Yes vote is never going to happen ...

Elec: So you think we are a few slices short of a full loaf?

Ms Lamont: Aye, that's about it ... it usually works in Scotland.

Elec: What about in 2007 and 2011?

Ms Lamont: They were just 'blips', London's told us to tell you, they were just blips. We are going to win in September and then go on as usual, so what's the point of Scottish only policies - eh?

Elec: Really?

The door slams leaving Ms Lamont as vacant as the shop premises.

  1. Thanks again Peter.
    I continue to be amazed at the arrogance of the Labour party in Scotland who think that Scots who have abandoned them have only done so temporarily and will return to the fold once they have seen off the pesky referendum.
    The reason,I am sure,that Scots have left the British Labour party is because they betrayed every value that Scots had for an egalitarian society and presented themselves as a nothing for something collection of individuals.
    This English based party will never do anything which benefits Scotland unless our southern cousins agree to it.
