Gordon Brown to the rescue: Former PM puts feud with Alistair Darling

[quote= http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2735196/Gordon-Brown-rescue-Former-PM-puts-feud-Alistair-Darling-one-bid-save-union.html]Gordon Brown and Alistair Darling will today end their bitter feud in a desperate attempt to salvage the campaign against Scottish independence.
The Labour grandees will appear together at a rally in Dundee to shore up support for Scotland remaining in the UK after Mr Darling's disastrous television debate performance.
The pair fell out after the former chancellor accused the former prime minister of 'hopeless' leadership and 'appalling behaviour' during his time in Downing Street.
But they are thought to have agreed an 'uneasy truce' in hope of boosting the campaign.

Re: Gordon Brown to the rescue: Former PM puts feud with Alistair Darling

everyone knows Gordon Brown is an untrustworthy lying scumbag whilst they thought Alistair Darling was a muppet, anyone would think they are trying to hand King Salmond  a win at the polls making such stupid moves as this, I can see a lot of politicians crying in a few weeks when Scotland votes for independence and all pointing the finger at the failure of the no campaign's leadership, so far despite the uncertainty over the currency, the certainty that thousands of MOD based jobs in Scotland will be lost and the country will not have enough taxation to fund its burgeoning commitments to its people the majority are now veering towards the yes campaign because they believe the future King of Scotland will be better at looking after the country than he has been to date (because a lot of what he's claiming will be different he already has the ability to change but wont in case people vote no.....)

What I don't get is why labour are fighting so hard to keep the scots while the tories are not?
It's as if the tories are actually happy to let he scots go their own way  Huh

the Tories would probably like them to go there own way, it will save the remainder of the UK 2K per person and of course relocating all those jobs south of the boarder will end up saving billions more on unemployment benefits...... (the MOD employs over 30,000 civilian staff in Scotland currently never mind the other state departments) never mind being able to use the damage that the labour party caused that has created the problem through there irresponsible devolution plans to get rid of them as agents of sedition and in one fell swoop clear there way to total power .....
labour OTOH is desperate to undo all the damage it already caused and probably scared of what will happen to them

Re: Gordon Brown to the rescue: Former PM puts feud with Alistair Darling

If Labour was really seriously against Scottish independence they would get Gordon Brown to say he fully supports it.
That should kill it off overnight.

I do hope that Gordon Brown and David Cameron will continue, for the next three weeks, visiting Scotland and pointing out the benefits of "better together", should guarantee us a landslide "yes" vote !!!!

Re: Gordon Brown to the rescue: Former PM puts feud with Alistair Darling

Hopefully Mr Brown will not be successful and the Scots will vote "yes". We'll then be able to remove all Scottish born politicians from the UK Parliament.
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.
