! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

Worm your way out of this Gordon …

That this House recognises that the Prime Minister is a signatory to the Scottish Claim of Right in which he declared and pledged that in all his actions and deliberations the interests of the Scottish people `shall be paramount’; believes that by declaring that the interests of the Scottish people should come first he has committed himself to discriminating against the people of England, Wales and Northern Ireland; considers this to be incompatible with being the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in which office the interests of all UK people should be equal; and calls on him publicly to disassociate himself from and withdraw from the Scottish Claim of Right.

How can this MP, elected in Scotland on a narrow mandate of reserved matters, ever claim to be representing the whole of the UK?  He has no mandate to govern England and signed the Scottish Claim of Right pledging to put the interests of Scottish people first and foremost in all his actions.

Simple answer is, he can’t.  No mandate, no job – seems pretty simple to me.

    I recomend writing to our MP and asking them to sign this EDM and report if they do or don’t and any replies given.

    You have a slight misunderstanding of it. He has signed it as PM and that is one of his jobs.

    It was written by our own dippy MSPs and sent to Westminster, to confirm all the monkey business

    Axel, he didn’t sign it as PM he signed it back in 1997 I think it was. So it’s you, again, that has the misunderstanding but not to worry, stick around and you’ll get educated.

    Good idea revinkevin, done!

    Axel, how can singing a declaration to put the interests of the Scots above those of the English, Welsh, or Northern Irish, possibly be one of the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland’s jobs?
    It may be one of the MSP’s jobs, but it’s certainly not his. If he *was* sent this declaration by MSPs, he should have returned it unsigned with a declaration that it was his duty to treat all parts of the UK with equality. But he didn’t.

    Good news and Bad news

    The good news is, you and the PM no longer have the Declaration, it and all its componenet bits and pieces are now with us in Holyrood, the bad news, however, is you still have Grumpy Gordo as your boss.
