Dissolving the state is not the same as independence

I would really like to know what is the strategic logic of this? Is it supposed to inspire others to “rise up” against the regime with homemade bombs? 187 more words

Gordon Brown

buddyhell reblogged this and commented:

Gordon Brown and the rest of the Labour Party like to tell us how it was their party that created the National Health Service. That's true. But what is equally true is the way the Blair and then Brown governments handed over millions of pounds worth of contracts to private companies under the Private Finance Initiative or PFI. Brown, who has recently been seen in Scotland in a desperate bid to save the Better Together campaign, is damaged goods. No one will ever trust him or his party again and it's his and Blair's fault. The Scottish Labour Party, too, is guilty because they refused to make a clean break with their English cousins. Johann Lamont, the party leader, has hopelessly tied herself to the same rotten neoliberal economic policies as Blair and Brown. A Yes vote is not only good for Scotland, it's also good for British politics. Saor Alba! Bon Accord! Vive la revolution!
