*Recent visit (and now revisit) of Ed Miliband, Labour Party leader to Scotland speaking of ‘social justice’
And lied to himself and us
Saying ‘social justice’ with phonemic litany
Without a foundation of purpose or history.
An intellect misappropriated for power
Standing with those who sell the undeserving poor.
A racist Party debated with the Deputy Prime Minister
As this nation debated its essence.
Not anger, not regret but surprise at the spectacle-
Flag waving, jubilees do not disguise decay.
Whatever the poll result
A new start has been made.
As The Bruce never said,
‘We won’t gie in’.
