The Union MUST Stay – latest self-selecting poll news.

Breaking news: 77.5% of Express readers support the Union. Blow me away, they voted in their droves…Yawn (I’m actually amazed that nearly a quarter of those who could bother to vote are against). To fill up the space, they get facile comments from political parties. The best was Ann McKechin (Lab MP, Glasgow North) who reminds us that “The people of Scotland have much more serious issues that they wish this Government to deal with”. Without even going for the cheap Big Brother shot (so tempting), what could be more important than the Iraq war (which Ann opposed), Trident, our place in the world? Westminster doesn’t deal with education, health, housing etc. so she can’t be thinking about these. What’s the point in her sitting down in Westminster voting on English domestic matters when she could be back in Scotland actually making a difference (this is the corollary of the West Lothian question)

However, this is just so much waffle. What I want to know is – what did Diana think of the
Independence questio?. Surely it’s within Justin Toper’s psychic ability to find out and fill the front pages from now to May 1st with all the shocking details.

    Dangerous outbreak of Unionism in the Highlands! As part of the Scottish Year of Highland Culture, Sir Elton John, knight at arms etc, is coming to Inverness to perform in July. While we are not xenophobic (see reviews on my blog), it is difficult to see how it fits the project, other than it’s happening this year. I wonder if this was wee Jack’s idea?

    Bush is forever saying that democracies do not invade other countries and start wars. Well, he did just that. He invaded Iraq, started a war, and killed people. What do you think? Why has bush turned our country from a country of hope and prosperity to a country of belligerence and fear.
    If ever there was ever a time in our nation’s history that called for a change, this is it!
    We have lost friends and influenced no one. No wonder most of the world thinks we suck. Thanks to what george bush has done to our country during the past three years, we do!
