A hung Parliament

Had it all planned about what I was going to write about today, but have just come back from a huge Sunday roast and an afternoon walk with the grandchildren; I'm stuffed and mellowed out.
We took the wee ones to a play park I played in when I was their age; as I walked down the street the memories flooded back.
My Grandmothers house with it's wee stane dyke.Wee on one side that is, a five foot drop on the other.
One Hogmanay first footing, the booze in my rucksack, I sat on that wall to finish a can throwing my head back to glug it down, then found myself like an upended turtle in her rose bushes...

What would us cybernats do without Geordie? He makes our life so much easier.

I remember why I vote SNP. Again.

I've just been on the English blogs finding out what they think of The Great Debate.
No suprise that the SNP is in the same category as UKIP and the BNP.
Oh God, what I'd give for a really big hammer and chisel.

TV or not TV

Brown versus Cameron. A quite straightforward televised debate by the leaders of two of the major parties would be excellent, high ratings, viewing; throw a bone to Clegg as he may get a lot of disenchanted Labour voters and that's it sorted.

If you happen to be a London based television producer who believes Britain means England that is.

But of course in Scotland Cameron isn't even a blip on the radar, and even with the "I'll vote for a monkey in a red rosette cause ma faither did" syndrome, Labour support is nowhere near the levels it once was.

Some of the subject matter they would be debating about would be irrelevant to Scotland, health, education and the law, all different.

On the subjects of Foreign Policy and Defence, how many people would be swayed by the SNP's policy of nuclear disarmament, and just maybe bringing our troops home?

Some people are arguing that because it will be a debate between the leaders of the Westminster parties, the smaller ones have no chance of governing the UK; so they should be excluded, ignoring the fact that if the SNP get enough MPs, there will be no UK to govern.
