I was having a wee look at Scot Goes Pop and just could not believe the facts that James Kelly was showing in a Scottish sample from a recent YouGov Poll and just had to go and have a wee look for myself, James was 100% correct of course and I was just 100% amazed and disappointed.

For more detailed analysis of the poll always go to Scot Goes Pop, but I was very surprised to see Scottish Labour 5% ahead of the SNP in Westminster voting intentions. No doubt this will form next weeks SNP bad and independence dead stories in the yoon rags, but it does make you want to give up with some people it really does. We have been failed over and over and over by the Westminster Unionist Parties for as long as I have lived, if not longer, yet some people are willing to cling to straws that somehow Labour will save them from the worst of this or any Tory Government. Labour are just a different colour of Tory Government. What the f don’t people understand.
Independence, in my opinion, is the only thing that will ever allow us to build the country and the democracy we need, to build the inclusive and decent country we want to be. Being attached to the rest of the UK, with its system and patronage, will only operate for the very few at the expense of the many. The UK as it stands will work to keep the majority down, and Labour are no different. Do people really think Corbyn is going to save the day, no he is not, he never will. He will pander to the same vested interests that Labour have always done, and do it badly, as Labour have always done.
I just don’t understand some people, what will it take. Some days I just want to give up, not because I have lost faith in the belief that independence is the right and only path for Scotland but because some people are just not worth the effort in any shape or form.
