The Scottish Office?

What is the Scottish Office for?

Thanks to the Westminster electoral system Labour has an inbuilt massive majority of Scottish MPs. This means eternal control over the Scottish Office.

What does Jim Murphy, Secretary of State for Scotland actually do with it?

Mmmm, many have pondered on the function of the Scottish Office since the Scottish Parliament came into being.

Pondering on Labour's By-election victory in Glasgow, I wondered how the, busy in Holyrood, SNP could lose touch with the street but Labour (cash-starved) had message management well organised.

Then it dawned on me: The Scottish Office is 'Minitrue' - Orwell's Ministry of Truth.

At vast expense to the taxpayer Jim and assorted minions sit around all day dreaming up anti-SNP propaganda. They then fire over their media directives to shills in the BBC, Das Herald Sturmer and Das Schottishman and others for obedient dissemination.

What were the slogans of The Party in 1984 again?: "War is Peace," "Freedom is Slavery," "Ignorance is Strength."

Are these the guiding principles of 'Murphy's Law'? The SNP better realise what it's up against and fast. A counter-propaganda vehicle is required by the nation.
