Scottish Labour Party — The Walking Dead

For years now, the Scottish Labour Party has been like the protagonist of the film The Sixth Sense — dead, but unaware of it.

The exception was in Glasgow, where it still had control of the city council, and so was able to continue its betrayal of the working class by cutting off spending in the most deprived areas, especially Govanhill, where the blame got placed on the immigrants who’ve been dumped there. Only the very naive, or stupid, could fail to see that this is in retaliation for the S.N.P.’s freezing the council tax.

As of yesterday’s election, the Labour Party no longer has control of Glasgow — for the first time in 37 years. The Tories have made some gains, which I suspect is a result of conservative maggots crawling away from the corpse of the Labour Party.
