Well Scotland is back in the New York Times this weekend. :) The referendum on Scotland's Independence seems to still be reverberating though UK politics. Scotland has traditional been a bastion of support for Labour. However, it sounds like the way Labour supported the Better Together campaign has not set well with many Scots--even those who voted No, to Independence. I heard a discussion on the BBC this morning that implied that Labour belittled and scorned Scotland in the campaign and that is one reason why the polls currently show that Labour is going to lose their seats in Scotland to the SNP--Scottish National Party. Of course, they also pointed out that the Tories are going to lose seats to UKIP--right wing UK Independence Party.
At any rate it's quite an election that is going to happen in the next few weeks. (I sure wish that our elections would happen this quickly! A sprint sounds so much better than a marathon.)
Obviously, I follow UK politics, do others when they are planning a trip? I'm not suggesting that you necessarily pick sides, but do you think it adds to your journey to have information on the current state of the country when you visit?
