The west of Scotland Labour love affair.
There are many who cannot understand the attraction that Labour have for the people of West Central Scotland. Speaking for myself, I understand but it is very difficult to put into words.
It's not a 'benefit junkie' thing. It stems from proper working class folk who have worked all their days in the traditional heavy industries. It's instilled into their psyche, it's who they and their families are. And to a certain extent still are.
In my opinion, the dolescum are not part of the Labour love in. Most of them cannot be bothered to vote so the myth of people voting to preserve their way of life and their benefits is, indeed, a myth.
I get incredibly frustrated and angry when supposed intelligent people still go on about Thatcher and the evil Tories and the destruction they did to Scotland. Utter nonsense. They blindly accept what Labour has done and is still doing.
Anyway, enough of my strained dribblings. Have a read at this.
