Dominic, the majority of people in Scotland (who vote) vote for the SNP as a means to Independence. Once Independent, other parties will gain more votes.

Labour was by far the largest party in Scotland for probably 100 years and people never forgave Blair for Iraq or the way the “Better together” campaign went. A a result, if it wasn’t fr proportional representation in the Scottish parliament, Labour would hardly win a seat.

Starmer never even mentioned gaining seats in Scotland as part of his world-leading plan. They have effectively given up on Scotland.

As would the Tories, IF they had somewhere to locate Trident and wouldn’t lose status worldwide with half the territory and no access to the future of wave power and other natural resources. Dropping from the top-table on the UN, NATO, G7 etc, is the only thing causing the Tories to think twice about ditching Scotland.

Completely ignoring the reported global increase in food prices this year. As for empty shelves in supermarkets, look in Alpha Mega, Phillipos and even Jumbo, loads of empty shelves. What can possibly cause that in the paradise that is the EU!

The only empty shelves you get here are in the aisles where they sell stuff from the UK.

Apart from changing their stock for Christmas in Jumbo there are no empty shelves according to the wife who was in their the other day. As Dominic stated the only empty shelves in Philipos are where they sell British goods as in Alpha Mega and I did raise the point about British stock missing from Lidl which has been replaced by items from the Netherlands.

Jim B. That’s the tip of the iceberg as you know. The total given out to Tory donors is billions. Serco being a classic example. £37bn and counting. No precious government would have survived one scandal. This lot are untouchable and they know it. Tell enough lies and people stop caring.

A rather large thread on Twitter this morning - definitely needs a brew, a butty followed by a paracetamol.

As others have pointed out, the only things missing on supermarkets shelves over here, are UK products, as I run a mile from that processed rubbish. it doesn't make any difference to me.

I found this very interesting, "Led By Donkeys" produce many factual videos and posters.
