UK Awakening, Labour Party Loses Major Seat

It is refreshing to see that our British friends are waking up. They are slowly losing their culture and country because of the United Kingdoms open door immigration policy. Which results in mass immigration of a group of people who go there with no intention of assimilating or working. They just head there to suck up welfare, housing and try and impose Islam on the Brits. A lot of this has to do with the weak kneed Labour Party which constantly caters to Islam, no matter how it effects the rest of the people there. The Labour Party is clearly on their way out. Since they love Islam so much, I suggest they be forced to spend some time in the Middle East. Lets see how much they get catered to.
Cheer mates!!

Brown's Labour Defeated in Parliament Race in Glasgow (Update1)

By Gonzalo Vina

July 25 (Bloomberg) -- Gordon Brown's Labour Party lost a U.K. Parliament seat in Glasgow to the Scottish National Party, the third election blow for the prime minister in as many months.

The SNP won Glasgow East with 11,277 votes compared with Labour's 10,912. At the 2005 election, Labour had 18,775 votes, three times as many as the SNP. Only 24 out of the 348 seats Labour won had larger majorities.

Brown's government has been trailing the main opposition Conservative Party in the polls since October. On May 1 Labour suffered its worst defeat in 30 years in local elections, and on May 22 it lost the Midlands industrial seat of Crewe, which it had held since World War II.

``I don't think this means that much to Gordon Brown, because things are so bad for him anyway.'' Steven Fielding, director of the Centre for British Politics at Nottingham University, said in an interview. ``It adds momentum to the SNP, which means a prolonged period of difficulty for Labour in Scotland.''

The special election was caused by the resignation of sitting lawmaker David Marshall for health reasons. Conservatives hold no parliamentary seats in Scotland, leaving the SNP the main opposition party there. The SNP campaigned against Labour's stewardship of Glasgow East, one of the poorest districts in the country with a quarter of the population claiming long-term sickness benefits.

``The SNP victory is not just a political earthquake, it's off the Richter scale,'' the winning SNP candidate, John Mason said in his victory speech. Brown and Labour ``are out of touch. It's time for change.''

Following a brief honeymoon after Brown took over as prime minister in June 2007, Labour's popularity has declined across the country as economic growth slowed and rising food and fuel costs ate into the income of voters.

The economy's growth rate probably will slow to 1.5 percent in 2008 and 1.4 percent in 2009 and 1.9 percent in 2010, according to forecasts by the National Institute of Economics and Social Research published today. That would be the worst spell since the end of the last recession in 1991 and half the 3.1 percent pace of expansion recorded in 2007.

``Growth is expected to be relatively anaemic over the next three years,'' Niesr economist Simon Kirby wrote in a report published today. ``We see a modest slowdown rather than any recession.''

Glasgow East, stretching five miles from the Scottish city's center into neighborhoods where steel works and locomotive factories closed in the 1960s and 1970s, has some of the highest unemployment rates in the nation. Fewer than half the area's 90,000 people own their home compared with the Scottish average of two-thirds. It has western Europe's highest incidence of heart disease and liver cirrhosis.

The U.K.'s longest economic expansion in two centuries that coincided with Labour's control nationally since 1997 hasn't brought prosperity to this region. Polls nationwide suggest the Conservatives have picked up support. Brown has until the middle of 2010 to call the next election.

``The Labour Party has to listen and hear the message of the people of Glasgow East,'' Margaret Curran, the defeated Labour candidate said. Douglas Alexander, Secretary of State for International Development, told BBC News 24 that the result has been ``disappointing,'' although he dismissed the suggestion it would trigger a bid to oust Brown as leader.

``Now is not the time for instant solutions,'' he said.

In tonight's vote, there was a 22.54 percent swing toward the SNP, according to BBC News 24 television. A shift of this size replicated across Scotland would reduce the number of Labour lawmakers in Scotland to one from the present 72, according to John Curtice, professor of politics at Strathclyde University in Glasgow.

In recent contests, Labour has suffered ``serious consistent losses of votes of about 20 percent,'' Curtice told the BBC. ``The collectivity of evidence gives you an idea how deep Labour's problems are.''

Conservatives had the support of 47 percent of voters, 20 points ahead of Labour and 32 points more than the Liberal Democrats, according to an Ipsos Mori Ltd. survey conducted between July 18 and July 20.

Labour won 35.3 percent of the vote in the 2005 general election compared with 32.3 percent for the Conservatives. Labour currently controls 350 of the 646 seats in the House of Commons, giving it 64 more seats than opposition parties combined.
