15:30 pm May 4 – 2011 tomorrow is voting day for Holyrood and I think we can safely say that SNP candidate Derek Mackay is not going to try to defend his position of defending Tory/Libdem Government cuts, the cuts he described as "about right" perhaps he has not seen my challenge to him on this Blog where I have specified ruthless cut after cut and asked him to defend what he said. I know however that he and those of his fellow SNP members the one or two who are literate also read it so there is only one conclusion to be drawn, he has bottled it, he has no defence and he has cut and run. He is a coward or as the SNP would put it he's a feartie.
The choice is between jobs and posturing our way toward a referendum on independence which the nationalists hardly ever mention, if the SNP win by their own admission they will have been the Scottish Government for 9 years before they call that referendum, that sounds a bit lame to me as if they were afraid of the people's voice. The Tories continue to wander in the wilderness and the Libdems face well deserved slaughter, the couple of kid on revolutionary groups will again lose their deposits. The choice is between Labour who will create jobs and safeguard the lives of working people or a one man band with a band leader who s political spiv with a level of sincerity and honesty that makes the late Bob Monkhouse look like a Quaker.
If you want to take on the Tory/Libdem Westminster Government who are preparing for bigger and more vicious cuts you should vote Labour.
