Guest David Edwards Posted July 25, 2008 Share Posted July 25, 2008 Congratulations to John Mason. He ran a good campaign, although his victory could be seen as not so much an endorsement of the SNP but more like a good kicking for the Labour Party. There's no doubt that the kicking was deserved because Labour has, with few exceptions, persistently betrayed the interests of ordinary Scottish people. Whether or not the result marks a significant turning point is unclear, particularly so given the low (42.5%) turnout. Whatever, despite my dislike and distrust of the SNP, I'm pleased. Who knows, this might be a step in the correct direction i.e. a way forward to self determination. Will this result encourage the Government to bring the referendum date forward or will Eck bottle it again? We'll see. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
