Scene missing again

Posted on April 27, 2016 by

We’d hoped to be bringing you in-depth analysis of the Scottish Labour manifesto by now, readers, but a couple of hours after their launch event there’s still no sign of it anywhere (we’ve checked their website, Facebook page and Twitter feed, all blank).

So we’re going to nip out to the shops for a bit. In the meantime, here’s some footage we recorded of the fantastic live stream of the launch the party put out.

    Cor Blimey, strike-a-light, a new thread has opened…

    Something is going to have to wait for an opportunity to insinuate itself into the fresh discussion.

    Quelle dommage…

    Sorry, got a bit confused there with all your technical jargon. I see now the ” ” were yours.

    Nice but dim here. 🙂

  3. CameronB Brodie

    ….and getting more short-sited by the day.

  4. Brian Doonthetoon

    Something strange happened to this page – immediately after the “Four minutes of fun’ page launched, when I refreshed this page, all the comments btl had disappeared.

  5. Brian Doonthetoon

    And now they’re all back.

    “Time for bed”, said Zebedee…

  6. CameronB Brodie

    You know what’s weird Brian? I made that “Nice but dim” comment before I saw your post on the next thread, which you posted 12 minutes before I posted my comment here.

    He’s messin’ with your heid’s…and you’re letting him.

  8. CamernoB Brodie

    Well I wish I wasn’t but I’m genuinely lost on this one. No worries though. Stuff happens.

    Onwards, I agree that there’s definitely a time and place for discussing certain things.

    But I’ll continue arguing that the SNP are too left leaning.

    If you get attacked by left for being too conservative, and attacked by conservatives for being too left, you’re probably in the goldilocks zone.

  10. Kennedy

    wow, just wow.

    Slab will get between 15 and 20% of the vote this time.

    Next election they will be at Lib Dem levels 5 to 10%.

    Their Unionist support will go to the tories and their socialist support will go to SNP, Greens, Rise and Solidarity.

  11. Kennedy

    London Labour are too busy infighting to give any assitance to the North Briton branch office and it shows.

    No money, no talent and no support. they have done it to themselves.

    The electorate dont need two Tory parties.

    Slab are superfluous!

    >”If you get attacked by left for being too conservative, and attacked by conservatives for being too left, you’re probably in the goldilocks zone.”

    Yeah – I think they are actually demonstrating a fair and balanced approach. Osborne’s decision to increase the upper tax band gave them an opportunity to take a compromise position. Now it looks like councils could be merged, and we have more money going directly to schools. It seems like they are prepared to take bolder steps when needed.

    Dave McEwan Hill,

    “We should all recognise that a referendum is not the only legitimate way to gain independence.”


    “Good point, worth repeating.

    There are many democratic routes to self-determination.”

    After having “lost” (debatable) a referendum, there is no other democratic route to independence.

    If there is, spell it out.

  14. Chic McGregor

    “Hi Charles McGregor. (Why did “Chic” get the bum’s rush?)”

    Dunno, guess it was too lavatorial or Carry-on-esque.

    Maybe it was or maybe there was some other connotation I was unaware of.
