Oh for the love of f**k. Social media, at once a blessing and a curse. That's it, I just said to myself, enough writing for today, time to do some reading. And then I stumbled upon this on my Facebook Newsfeed, from the Herald:
"GORDON Brown should return to frontline British politics to take charge of Labour’s push for a federal solution to the UK’s constitutional problems, according to a senior party figure."
"Mark Lazarowicz, a member of the Scottish Constitutional Convention, said he believed the former Prime Minister was the ideal person to lead Labour’s quest to find a balanced and permanent constitutional settlement for the UK."
What alternate universe do these people inhabit? Why would anyone think this is a good idea? This is the same failed Prime Minister who in 2014 famously said: “We’re going to be, within a year or two, as close to a federal state as you can be in a country where one nation is 85 per cent of the population." That went well, didn't it? He even had the cheek to say "I can understand how people are skeptical when promises are made.” Not enough, it seems.
Why should we believe he can deliver this time around, I mean, did he even try last time, or did he just slink off back to his cave, or crypt or wherever it is they keep him? Does anybody even want the what they're offering ? As things stand they're unlikely to be able to deliver before 2025, if then. Anyway, has the quiet, bearded one been consulted on this "cunning plan"? Broon and Blair have damn near killed the Labour Party, and politically speaking, the pair of them need to stay dead. Besides, the only "permanent constitutional settlement" for the UK is Scottish independence.
