My thoughts on the Election night

My view on Election night, it was a very interesting night I thought the SNP would lose maybe 10 seats and the Torys and Labour would gain but what happend was incredible

To me it was good to see Labour back in the frame AS A PROPER OPPOSITION this is what democracy is about. It would be good if all parties now worked together for a better country. Sad night for my party but maybe with a stronger opposition in Westminster things will improve. Sadly I feel my dreams of Independence are over at least in my lifetime. I hope now that we can sort out the mess and not just follow blindly our parties and allegiances. We need to tell them when they have lost the plot and are out of line power can corrupt. I feel we need to make this a better country for all share our wealth look after the old the ill and young and welcome those who need help.  We have food banks in 2017 and so many homeless yet we have so much.

There is so much to do and surely working together we can make this a great country?

I am proud to live in Scotland and we have so many from all over the UK and the world enjoying this wonderful place and despite the politics we must never forget that we need to live together whatever happens.

Stay friends whatever your politics, you can argue, discuss but respect all views and never take your right to vote lightly.

Good luck with those who are left to clear up this mess.

    Well said Heavy! Sad to see so much hatred in politics in our beautiful country, we can only make a real difference by engaging with politicians and the electorate system. Know your councillors, MSP’s and MP’s, and don’t feel afraid to approach them with your views or if you’re needing help.

    Wise words as I’ve come to expect from you Dave, the one thing I will remember about this election that has encouraged me for the future was the enthusiasm with which my two Sons 21 and 23 went to vote no encouragement necessary the really felt the need to get involved.
    Hopefully now Labour seem less fragmented the can get to work as a strong opposition and make this government more accountable.
