The Beginning

The campaign is now underway, with the traditional news that Scotland's shipyards (at least the ones in Govan - a key marginal, funny that, isn't it?) will get work. Also leading the Labour campaign (and the LibDem campaign) is their promise to end tolls on the Tay Bridge and end all tolls except for lone car users on the Forth Road Bridge. The following Labour and LibDem MSPs voted against a proposal to end the tolls just a few weeks ago (from the Business Bulletin). They also voted against a Green proposal which suggested taking the occupancy of a car on the bridge into account. If they're your local candidate, why not ask them why this was a bad idea two months ago, but it's the right thing to do now?

But is Jack any happier?

I suggest they changed their minds because they're shitting their pants at the prospect of having to get a real job, and work for their money when they are booted out of "representing" the people.

Workshy bastards.

One can only hope the people aren't too stupid to fall for it.
