Scots Novelist Iain Banks on Immigrants and the Poor as Scapegoats

I found this meme over on the Slatukip – Still Laughing at UKIP – page on Facebook. Iain Banks was the great Scots novelist, who created the much loved ‘Culture’ SF novels under his alternative writing name of Iain M. Banks. He said in an interview he gave years ago along with China Mieville, another SF writer, that he voted for the SNP not because he was a nationalist, but simply because they offered a better deal for the poor than Labour. Sadly, Banks is no longer with us, and much missed by SF fans.
