Ed Miliband’s election theme song

Yup:

The poll by Lord Ashcroft – which is of a series of parliamentary seats across Britain – indicates that the SNP, led by Nicola Sturgeon, could win 56 of Scotland’s 59 parliamentary seats, according to the veteran polling analyst Mike Smithson. This would virtually wipe out the Labour party and the Liberal Democrats north of the border.

    Wouldn’t be too sure of that.
    I’m fully expecting to see Wallace gurning on the steps of No10. Not saying he’s got the qualifications for a lavatory attendant’s position.
    Whether Call-Me Dave gets a stay of execution depends entirely on how much damage the SNP do to Milimong. Which goes to show how utterly f**k**g useless the big foreheaded c**t is.

  2. The whole situation in Scotland just seems very weird. And what happens if we get a coalition comprising Labour and the Scottish Nazi Party as the majority at Westminster?

  3. Say what you want about the SNP and their policies, but they seem to be the only party whose supporters are holding their politicians’ feet to the fire and getting them to represent their interests. Which other party can say the same? Possibly UKIP and the Greens, but Labour? Tories? Lib Dems? No wonder SNP is headed for a clean sweep.

  4. The SNP are a very bad lot who intend to turn Scotland into a full on socialistic sewer.

    As well as jailing football chanters and appointing a personal gauleiter for every individual Scots child they are attempting to revive the ID card database in Scotland and are proposing to link all govt records –NHS etc to HMRC for more efficient tax snooping.

    The Scots appear to love socialism. I hope that the SNP will be the ones to give them a real experience of it. That might just cure them.

  5. I get the feeling that for some reason ordinary Scots are just caught up in a nationalism craze and aren’t voting SNP on the basis of their policies. There can’t be that many insane people north of the border.

    They’re an offshoot of the 1930s fascist movement. Authoritarian nationalist socialists. It amazes me they get away with it.

    “Are they populist? They look like authoritarian Calvinist socialists to me.”
    Test is, are people voting for ’em? Checks… Yep

    !930s fascist movements were very popular in the 30’s. Maybe their time’s come again. Up to the voter’s really, isn’t it? Or should be, in democracies.

    ” There can’t be that many insane people north of the border.”
    I was always under the impression there couldn’t be that many insane south of it. But I’m regularly proved wrong.

  9. There are that many insane people North of the border. There really are.

    The endless “bash the English” nationalism and the endemic idiocy of the Westminster ruling class helps of course. That people fail to realise that the utter incompetence of Scottish local government and the hugely expensive ego-foundry at Holyrood means that our lot are no better than the Westminster lot is down to some very effective propaganda, free prescription rose-tinted spectacles and the recent utter decline of the once world beating Scottish education system (which is now run by the same breed of lefty idiot that has also ruined the never-quite-as-good-as-us English education system.)

    Either that, or they are putting some really weird drugs in the water supply.

  10. The SNP have policies but absolutely no coherent view of the world. Their sole purpose for existence is to deliver an independent Scotland and for them to be in power following that. Nothing will get in the way of that. They would advocate slaughter of the first born if it advanced their cause.

    I didn’t realise just how fanatical they were until the referendum campaign. I have to confess that up to that point I thought they could be open to argument, but the scales fell from my eyes.

    Even their “Yes” campaign brethren have expressed their surprise at the sheer lust for power and English-hatred that a large part of the SNP exhibit.

  11. The SNP may have policies that make no coherent sense, but they do at least have some policies. Voters like that.

    More to the point, a vote for the SNP is a vote both for the SNP and for Labour, as SNP MP’s will still count towards forming a Labour government.

    So, the Scots can vote for either a Labour MP, or an MP that PM Milliband will have to suck up to.

    Win-win.

  12. “The Scots appear to love socialism. I hope that the SNP will be the ones to give them a real experience of it.”

    Ha! Without independence there’s no way they’ll get actual socialism, red in tooth and claw. They’ll get the kind of socialism that works brilliantly – the kind where some other sucker pays for it.

  13. “what happens if we get a coalition comprising Labour and the Scottish Nazi Party as the majority at Westminster?”

    We get Wee Eck as Chancellor of the Exchequer. For all his faults he’s evidently better qualified than Balls.

    P.S. And I doubt that the internet has a photo of Eck in a Nazi uniform, unlike Balls.

  14. So we could be heading for a Union of Scottish Soviet Regions?

    How jolly. In one way it wouldn’t be a bad result. The rest of the UK would get a close look at the typical train wreck of a country run under the hard left.

  15. bloke (not) in spain

    “The SNP have policies but absolutely no coherent view of the world.”
    Now shock us & name the party with a coherent view of the world? The Raving Loonies?

    To be in favour of “affordable homes” but also in favour of a “strong” housing market. That’s coherent?

  16. What a pity Miliboy doesn’t represent a Scottish constituency…

    What concerns me most, is that he may scrape in because of votes leaking to UKIP from the Tories. Given that a referendum has been promised, wouldn’t UKIPpers be best to vote Tory this time….?

  17. “Given that a referendum has been promised, wouldn’t UKIPpers be best to vote Tory this time….?”

    No. No. No.

  18. We can only live in hope that Devo Max combined with the SNP in a coalition will be enough to finally stir the English to revolution 🙂

  19. Problem is, whichever way you cut it, there will be a leftist Govt in May.

    Best scenario: Lunatic left Labour propped up by motley collection of LibDems, Greens, but not beholden to SNP. But still imagining they have a mandate. Cue massive tax raids, privatisation, climate lunacy. End of civilisation.

    Worst case scenario: Lunatic left Labour informal coalition with SNP. Complete hard-left mandate. Cue massive tax raids, privatisation, climate lunacy. End of civilisation. But faster.

  20. Now shock us & name the party with a coherent view of the world? The Raving Loonies?

    Fair point.

    I suppose I meant that, notionally at least, Labour stood for “socialism”, Tories for some kind of belief in markets, Greens for “the environment”. The SNP are a fanatical power-hungry party who are happy to flit between extreme left and extreme right, sometimes in the same sentence.

    A bit like the LibDems.

    I’d settle for just stirring them – that would be a start!

  22. The worse thing about a possible labour win is the ghastly possibilty that the Murphmonster might have a sliver of influence over real world events.

    A man who believes in a concept of “bono vacantia” which I can only assume involves the crown assuming control over the lead singer of U2.

  23. “This would virtually wipe out the Labour party…north of the border.”

    Indeed it would.

    And as a result we would have the Millipede as Prime Minister, propped up by a gloating Alex Salmond, on the sole condition that the breakup of the UK then proceeds apace – whether the Scottish people want that or not.

    Isn’t first-past-the-post a wonderful thing?

  24. I rather like the though of a bit of a shake-up in May, but I’m not convinced.

    1) If they’re in coalition in Westminster and running Scotland, will the SNP really want to leave the UK?

    2) Wise owls are suggesting that, actually, Lab and Con are going to get the more seats overall, not fewer, as the “rebels” tail off, and/or cancel each other out.

    3) Don’t assume that UKIP is no threat to Labour.

  25. The way things are going I wouldn’t be surprised to see a Tory/Labour coalition frankly. It’s entirely legitimate under our bizarre system, they agree about virtually everything anyway (centrist progressives) and they could just call themselves a National Government, justified by “otherwise it would have been a mainstream party forced to pander to fruitcakes and loons, we have done this for the good of all”.

    Wouldn’t be surprised at all, if neither gets an overall majority.

    And as a result we would have the Millipede as Prime Minister, propped up by a gloating Alex Salmond, on the sole condition that the breakup of the UK then proceeds apace

    So should SNP candidates be standing in England, just to make sure?

  27. SNP only have the achieve critical mass and they’ll be welcome bedfellows with Labour, if the opposition is split it’ll become a race to find the best coalition.

    Not something I’d personally be against, coalitions sound a better bet nowadays, but a leftist Green-SNP-Labour led by Milibland is frightening.
