Scottish Elections: Gordon Brown And Alex Salmond’s Waste

tr_ed_effluent_230407.pngELECTIONS to the Scottish Parliament will take place on 3 May 2007. Catoonist Hack looks at the campaign so far.

Elections, held in 73 constituencies and eight Parliamentary regions, will result in the election of 129 Members of the Scottish Parliament.

The battle is hotting up. As the Scotsman reports, the world is watching: “Reporters for newspapers and broadcasters from India to the United States are…making the journey, drawn by the chance that the Scottish result will rock the Labour Party and even the very make-up of the United Kingdom.”

The celebrities are massing. The Scottish National party have enlisted Sir Sean Connery. The Unionists have secured Sir Alex Ferguson.

As the Guardian reports: “The Manchester United manager was among 15 prominent Scots footballers who published an open letter attacking the SNP, claiming that staying within the UK was the truest form of patriotism.”

Will Gordon Brown’s Labour Party triumph? Or will Alex Salmond win and gain independence for Scotland?

Or, in light of new warnings that the Forth estuary has been stained by a major sewage leak, will the Scots stay at home and smoke and watch telly instead of voting?
