Am I negative about Labour? YES. Do I think Labour’s funny? NO

Scotland's future will be determined on May 5th for four years, perhaps forever. It's time for bold statements, clear leadership and vision.

@AlexSalmond4FM Everybody claims Burns as their own. Say something about the state of Scotland. That's what I want to hear from you, FM.

Try responding to obscure witticisms and cosy in-jokes if you are worried sick about your home, your job, your future and your health.

Explain to the families of the dead, the dole queues, the sick and the elderly and the poor why Labour is funny, at UK or Holyrood level.

Iraq Labour - wrecked economy Labour - flag of death Labour. Am I negative about them? You better believe it. Humour's OK but not enough ...

I'm a Glasgow Scot - lived in Scotland for 65 of my 75 years: Labour has lied to me, a Labour voter for 50 years. Why believe them now?

Can any teacher, student, local authority worker - any victim of alcohol abuse, any sick or vulnerable person trust a word Labour says now?

Peter Curran

@Paul0Evans1 Yes, there's a spill over from trivial Twitter practices into the big boys' game. You follow me and I'll follow you nonsense

Labour MPs and Lords in the dock for criminal fraud or drummed out for misrepresentation and racism. Do Scots want such a party in office?

#snpbrokenpromise Some of the tweets on this are so heavily ironic that it's not clear who they support. Try to be more direct, please ...

Peter Curran

#scottishlabour Desperately spewing out promise after promise in a frantic attempt to convince voters that they believe in something. Sordid

LibDems: We're anybody's for a fag, a ministerial car and salary and - (What's that? Promises? Principles? Ideals? You must be having us on)

#scottishlabour We ruined the economy, and now the Coalition are completing the job. We congratulate them! (Sorry, Ed, did I get it wrong?)

#scottishlabour Scots - wouldn't you prefer a toom tabard, Iain Gray as FM, knee bent and forelock touched to Westminster than Alex Salmond?

Peter Curran

moridura Peter Curran

#scottishlabour Promise to shine your shoes, wash your hankies - anything except give up WMDs and stop sending Scottish boys to their deaths

Peter Curran

moridura Peter Curran

#scottishlabour A rash of promises to do anything and everything except help a vulnerable constituent, Margaret Jaconelli, victimised by GCC

@markc1984 I respect your right, but not your judgment. Burns stood for the common man against wealth and privilege. Labour doesn't anymore.

An appeal from a unionist comedian - Eddie Izzard - and my reply … moridura.blogspot.com/2011/01/appeal… via @moridura

@Scotsvote2011 @scottishlabour Unionist hypocrisy and doublethink has destroyed such integrity as Labour had left. Don't let them in, Scots!

Peter Curran

Scottish coalition puppets - and Labour - brought down a good Transport minister over weather. Will ConLibs resign? Will ConLib pigs fly?

Peter Curran

moridura Peter Curran

Economy down - Coalition in a panic - "It was the bad weather ..." says millionaire Old Etonian Osborne. Will he resign? Will he hell!

Peter Curran

moridura Peter Curran

@markc1984 Don't pervert the poetry of a great Scot to serve a Unionist puppet of Westminster, please. Respect Scotland, not the corrupt UK.

Peter Curran

moridura Peter Curran

@stevencalder Iain Gray statesman-like? Are you pitching for the Golden Globe comedy awards, Steven? Or was it heavy irony? - or satire?

Peter Curran

@dhothersall The failings of a few! The few are the tiny minority that opposed the Iraq War, and the collective failings of the party.

"My father always voted Labour, so will I ..." Your father voted for a party that doesn't exist any more, and hasn't for decades - wake up!

Don't unfollow those you disgree with, so long as they are relevant to the great debate - know your opposition. Only unfollow triviality -

The history of Labour in Glasgow and Scotland is one great, shameful, heartbreaking broken promise to the people, a monumental betrayal.

Peter Curran

moridura Peter Curran

The SNP - the last best hope of the people of Glasgow and Scotland. In less than 4 years, they have done more than Labour did in 50 years.

Peter Curran

The Glasgow Labour Party - the main barrier to the people of Glasgow escaping from the curse of alcohol abuse, violence, poverty and crime.

Peter Curran

moridura Peter Curran

I was brought up in extreme poverty in Glasgow, and I have lived in Scotland for 65 years. Labour failed the people completely since 1945.

Peter Curran

@Irpicus The treatment of a Glaswegian family, the Jaconelli's, by Glasgow City Council epitomises Labour failure and corruption of ideals.

Peter Curran

moridura Peter Curran

@Irpicus If you have to defend Labour record by harking back to the 19th century, God help Glasgow - Labour certainly hasn't -

Peter Curran

moridura Peter Curran

@Irpicus In the last 13 years of Labour Government just about everything got worse in Glasgow - alcohol abuse, poverty, health - you name it
