Scottish Parliamentary Elections launch of the manifestos and Hibs prepare for Cup Semi Final with defeat!!!



The Easter break is over and Election Manifestos are coming thick and fast with the Scottish Labour Party and the Scottish Socialists launching theirs' today. The Scottish Labour Party Manifesto is called Building Scotland and gives it's top priority to Education which has to be right! I am hoping that the scottish people get the message over the next few weeks and certainly reject out of hand any talk of independance!
I am somewhat surprised to hear that the SSP are committed to a referendum on Independance within a year a la SNP and I cant believe that this will help their cause? I saw Tommy Sheridan , the one man band, discribe the SSP as a "small rump" which seems a bit rich!! and it is good to see the Left resort to type, realising that they hate each other more than their enemies, a case of the Judean Popular Front against the Popular Front of Judea if ever I saw it!!!

Hibs have only taken one point from nine since their CIS Cup victory and prepared for the Scottish Cup Semi Final against Dunfermline with a 1-0 defeat on Sunday against, er..... Dunfermline!!!!
The general view is that the players are pre-occupied with the Semi Final and all will be well on Sunday! I hope they are right? I actually think that we will win with some of our rested players back in and a UEFA place at stake.
We also appear to have discovered another excellent youngster with Ross Chisholm playing well in midfield and alreaady been offered an extended deal.
With players like Lewis Robinson, Ross Campbell and Kevin McCann discovered over the past few months the future still looks bright, ever with the inevitable departure on Scott Brown to Rangers or, preferrably, Bolton Wanderers or Tottenham! !

The Northern Ireland Hibs Supporters Club are having a special event in June with Pat Stanton as Guest of Honour, especially relevant with at least 3 Northern Ireland Players in the squad! It was reported at the London Hibs Supporters Club and it seems that both Groups are thriving!!
