HUMZA: "We are nobody's branch office. Nobody puts Scotland in a box. No one puts Scotland in a corner."

Is this your first conference?
Depute Leader: Stewart Hosie.
Not bad for a Saturday morning in March.
HUMZA: Welcome to Glasgow. The city with only two seasons: 
taps oan an' taps aff.

  1. Well what can one say, if I was Niko I would bitch, if I worked in the BBC Labour Branch I did bitch. For the rest of us, inspiration, she was wonderful. I expect everyone noticed that folk had to bunk up and not spread out. I have said this before but I know I am on the right side, the intelligent left wing side. No fake camera work needed there, and I bet they had more people wanting tickets than could get them.
    Unfortunately I am packing up the house again but let us hope I am settled in this time and able to put my talents (ahem) to work for 2016. I am sure Hektor will wear his badge with pride whilst leafleting then.

  2. I just wish she had said there is no such thing as 'Scottish Labour.'
    There was a moment in her speech when I thought she was about to say so.
    Damn good speech though!
    Hope the packing goes well, Helena.

    1. Thanks... I was at my mum's at 6ish and saw a little bit of the boss's speech.

      The commentary was full of misleading statements, and the camera seemed to concentrate very much on the height of her heels.

      I look forward to a long view of Mr Cameron's heels... Well, OK I don't.

      Let's just concentrate on seeing a clean pair of heels from him.

    2. The BBC broadcast many hours of the unionists party conferences but only a couple of SNP party, biased you betcha nothing more than a UK state propaganda arm stuffed with corrupt individuals.
