IS THE SCOTTISH 'PORRIDGE WOG' VOTE THE REASON LABOUR ARE IN POWER?

ANONYMOUS SAID
"Whats the matter porridge wogs dont like the truth? Labour would not stand a chance of being elected if we had an English parliament,we have suffer their shite thrust upon us because of you and the taffys,i pray for the day of an English parliament to rid ourselves of you".

One of the brave ANONYMOUS contributors on another post accused us SCOTS PEOPLE or 'PORRIDGE WOGS' as he puts it, as being the only reason Labour get into power.  Well I decided to investigate that remark.  In 1997 Labour had an overall Majority of 179.  Scotland contributed a 'net' 40 MPs.  Therefore if it had been purely an English election, Labour would have had a majority of 139.  In 2001, a Majority of 167 minus 40 from Scotland, equals and English majority of 127.  In 2005, majority 66 minus 23 from Scotland, equals an English majority of 43.

So as you can see, since 1997 had it been purely an English election, Labour would have still got in with substantial majorities.  So sorry ANONYMOUS, you can't blame us 'PORRIDGE WOGS'!  What about the North of England?

The wee spurtle believes everything he reads in the Daily Mail.
Or the Telegraph.
Or the Times.
Or the Sun.
Aye, the Sun is about right.

Since we only have 10% of the vote Scottish votes only count if it's a close run election. We had to suffer 3 Tory victories despite Scots hating the Tories and not supporting them.
I'd love the English to have their own parliament. Leave us in peace to move on.

Conan, are you sure the wee spurtle can read? Or does he just sit in the works toilet kidding on he's having a crap, having a wank at that day's page 3?

Boabs, exactly what I told the illiterate twat. As soon as Scotland get's independence so does England. That will happen once you work out what our share of the national treasure is. Like the contents of the Potrait Gallery, for instance.

DL you pose the interesting question "What about the North of England?"
You can have them too, bye bye regions 6 & 7.

Banned, Ah but you've now had 3.9 million Labour voting immigrants net of a migration of 2 million Tory voting emmigrants. That is a net swing of 5.9 million. So you need us and the black pudding munchers!
