A Hard Night 284

I can’t pretend not to have been disappointed by the Clackmannanshire result, especially as I am here with some wonderful people who have put months and years of their lives into campaigning heart and soul.

But the count was fascinating. Professional Conservative, Labour and Lib Dem politicians working and socialising together and dressing the same. Tory ladies in pillar box red clothes and Lib Dem councillors in Labour Party rosettes. All braying and congratulating each other in the same voices, and looking smug and very happy together.

We are not winning tonight’s battle at the moment, but the battle lines have now become clearly defined between the single establishment of the media and all the political parties, and almost half the people – so far who want an alternative political structure. This is a stage in a process, and in its clarity and scale a major advance.

    Perhaps the ruling oligarchy patched it together for now. Collapse deferred is more abrupt.

    Congratulate yourselves on a job well done. We’ll take it from here.

    Phhhtt. Doesn’t look good now.

    Nice one, Scots. You’ve put a smirk on every Thatcherite and “New” Labour stooge’s face.

    Let’s not hear any more whining about the English, their tyrannical jackboot and so on, ever again, eh? The Scots want to hide behind the English skirts, just as the English want to hide behind the Americans’.

    Thanks Squonk.

    Very sorry Craig about this.

    The BiBiCee stooges including Robinson are trying not to look smug. They should be disgusted with their biased output.

    Scotland and the rest of this country are changed forever.

    PS Sky’s programme was dreadful.
