Irvine Welsh on Solidarity

Irvine Welsh in yesterday's Guardian calls on the English left to get the 'real villains in its sights' - To defeat: 'neoliberalism, austerity, the preservation and protection of a secretive nonce ruling class and the destruction of ... the welfare state.' 

Why have we mistaken the 'type that leads us into slaughtering Iraqi children, based on lies' as the type of leader we want? 

Scotland has become, to those in Westminster, 'a headache'.  Perhaps Scottish Independence, rather than being another occasion to whine about being abandoned to a hundred years of Tory rule, would force those of us south of the border to get onside.  To turn Labour into the kind of party who deserves our vote.
