Dear Labour

Dear Labour

There's no easy way to say this, so we'll just come right out with it.  It's over, and it's time for us both to move on.

We started out with a lot of hope and determination to make things better for everyone, and for a long time it worked.  We improved the lot of many people, giving them things such as the NHS, unemployment benefits and a decent education.  We helped lots of our children to reach their full potential and lifted them out of poverty, both financial and of ambition.  We were good together.

Lately, though,  you've been spending a lot more time with your smart friends down south, and you've been more interested with ingratiating yourself with their children, many of whom have a much more individualistic view on life.  Now it's got to the point where our ideas have diverged too far for it to work any longer.  We nearly left you in September, but gave you one more chance to prove you still cared.

We've met someone else.  They're a little younger than you, but they want the same things that we still want.  They've also got other friends who share their ideals.  We're moving on.

Hope things work out for you with your new family.


PS, Tell Ed we hope the extraction of the silverware from his back isn't too painful.

  1. Dear Labour, it's over, its not you its..actually It's you. You have mistreated us for over 50years, you lied, you cheated and you have been found wanting. It's time for you to pack up and leave, you have till May to get your shit together and get gone. You won't be missed. It would be a lie if we said we needed you or wanted you anymore so please feel free to die in a ditch. Love and hugs Scotland. Ps we have been seeing the SNP behind your back and it's going awesome...
