Bitter and twisted, nasty and vicious, spiteful and hateful, SNP Leader Nicola Sturgeon makes unwarranted attack on Labour MSP at Holyrood as the Natalie McGarry financial scandal intensifies, Sturgeon personally endorsed McGarry, Sturgeon’s mask has slipped, she is still the hateful and spiteful hatemonger of old, this is SNP ‘civic Nationalism’

Dear All

Lots of people like reading this blog because it seems to get things ‘bang on the money’, for example, I have repeatedly said that SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon is an angry wee Nat.

So, what happens?

Nicola Sturgeon goes out of her way to prove that…… George Laird right again.

At FMQ’s at Holyrood, Nicola Sturgeon resorted back to type; angry wee Nat of old, full of bile and bitterness, all twisted and spiteful, she decided to bad mouth Dr. Richard Simpson who is a Labour MSP, without realising she was speaking into an open mic.

It was a rather ugly affair which shows Sturgeon in her true light.

Has the Natalie McGarry scandal really rattled her that much?

Many people have listened to the now infamous audio several times and they have said to me that they thought that Nicola Sturgeon had called; Dr. Richard Simpson an ‘idiot’, the version that is coming from the SNP is that instead of ‘idiot’, Sturgeon said ‘ignorant’.

Listen to the audio online and judge for yourself.

I have several times; I haven’t heard once the word ‘ignorant’ said by Sturgeon. Like the Natalie McGarry scandal, we yet again have a mystery surrounding the ‘evidence’.

While looking at the video tape of the exchange, one thing stuck me, Ms. Sturgeon was looking rather ‘rough’ in my opinion, when looking at her clothes; I wondered did she buy her outfit straight out of a Caterers’ outfitters?

It was just horrible looking, no sense of style, no glamour, just hanging on her like a bag of spuds.

Has she decided that it is time to ‘let things go’ physically?

Do, you remember those recent dreadful TV interviews that Sturgeon did on the Natalie McGarry scandal, which just keeps going from bad to worse, as more revelations make it into the public domain. There was Sturgeon hopping about from one foot to the other, face screwed up and trying to defend herself for her inactions. If you stand back, you could see the Sturgeon mask slipping as the angry wee Nat fought to control her nasty wee temper. The fake insincerity act for the cameras was cracking wide open; the look of anger was plain to see in my opinion.

What a bitter woman she has become of late, people keep pointing out that she is a loser. We all make mistakes, we are only human, but for some of us, we don’t try to make a career out of it!

Refusing to act on McGarry was a major fail in terms of leadership and trying to hide behind due process; it was shallow and common, as Sturgeon attempted to save her protégé out of her nasty vile Southside clique.

Nicola Sturgeon just looked and sounded ridiculous; then came the revelation that the SNP had known for weeks about the WFI situation. Yet again, it was the standard SNP line; ‘Nicola knows nothing’, yet again making her, the most ignorant woman in Scottish politics.

£30,000 is the figure which appears to raise some concern.  

Does Dr. Richard Simpson deserve an apology?

I would say so.

Let’s look at a few things which have happened just recently.

Firstly Tommy Ball connected to her southside SNP gang pleds guilty at Glasgow Sheriff Court, Natalie McGarry named in my criminal witness statement along with Shona McAlpine, office manager to Muslim list MSP Humza Yousaf, and Jonathan Mackie, office manager to Chris Stephens.

SNP MP Natalie McGarry promoted a twitter account which had the theme of sexual intercourse with children and filming of little girls in a state of dress. She might have deleted her tweets, but I kept a digital record, handy thing on a computer, ‘save as’.

Next we get the Natalie McGarry financial scandal which shines the spotlight directly on Nicola Sturgeon herself, not only did Sturgeon endorse McGarry, which was a mistake, she also said McGarry was a ‘good pal’ of hers.

Nicola Sturgeon among her other failings as a decent human being is a hypocrite, during the referendum, she constantly interrupted people speaking and talked over the top of them to get noticed and the camera to focus on her.

As we now know the entire white paper was a load of rubbish pushed by Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon. I feel therefore that Sturgeon had no right to take exception to the behaviour of Dr Richard Simpson. His later intervention as she answered a query on abuse in care homes was also legitimate; he at least is a health professional unlike her.

After presiding officer Tricia Marwick (Natalie McGarry’s auntie) called an end to the session, Sturgeon was heard to say what sounded like "Richard Simpson is an idiot" before her microphone cut off.

If we accept her version of Simpson being ‘ignorant’, then she can only also conclude that she is an ignorant woman for her behaviour, not just at Holyrood but elsewhere. It seems the pressure is getting to her; the fairytale looks rather threadbare of the SNP being the answer to Scotland’s problems.

To add to her tale of woe, Scotland’s ‘jolly fat man’ Alex Salmond deserted the key Commons debate on Syrian air strikes to unveiled a portrait of himself in Edinburgh. His ego and vanity got the better of him; is him standing next to a painting more important that representing his constituents?

Seems that way to me!

Clearly this is another example that Nicola Sturgeon isn’t really in charge of the SNP, but is looking more and more like a Salmond proxy. I wonder how much enjoyment Salmond is getting at Sturgeon struggling, some people in the SNP don’t believe that Sturgeon is capable of leadership.

So, expect more bile and bitterness from Nicola Sturgeon, she is losing control of the SNP and is looking remarkably like yesterday’s woman who is clinging on for the ‘pay packet’. If the Natalie McGarry scandal gets much worse, it could be that Sturgeon will drop the fake act of sincerity altogether, as the press pursue her and McGarry like hunted animals.

‘Community Justice’ Nicola?

When you hand someone power who is not capable of leadership, you have to expect these types of problems to happen. Sturgeon spent years building grudge, grievance and malcontent at the microphone at SNP Conferences blaming everyone but herself for her own failings.

It is ironic that a tool she used in the past seems to be her possible undoing; I suppose that the SNP will be getting a series of engagements hastily planned so Sturgeon can hug kids. I would suggest it is a bit too late for that now, someone said to me recently that the SNP is a house of cards, and that the pack will be falling shortly.

Nicola Sturgeon has absolutely no class, the shop soiled white hope from Dreghorn isn’t suited to leadership; she can’t make the right decisions. Her career is littered by failure to achieve, the health service was her flagship, what a disaster that is at present, ran into the ground, underfunded and understaffed.

We all heard Nicola Sturgeon say she didn’t have enough information to suspend Natalie McGarry from the SNP, now we find out that the SNP knew for weeks. As the McGarry financial scandal intensifies, it could be the defining moment for Nicola Sturgeon and the wider independence movement.

One thing we know for certain, the act of a ‘caring human being’ has been swept away, and instead we are seeing the real Nicola Sturgeon, bitter and twisted, full of bile and hatred.

The Budget; UK Chancellor George Osborne pulls of a ‘good budget’ performance by his U –turn on tax credits and protecting police budgets, the Labour Party need slow down and not try too hard, John McDonnell doesn’t need the red book of Mao, his point about protecting UK assets stands on its own merit, learn to pick your spot

Dear All

Every now and then I get surprised in politics, I have been campaigning against the idea of Tax Credits Cuts, the idea would have saved money but the method was badly thought-out and to be fair it was too blunt.

Too many people would have suffered unfairly and it wasn’t I feel good politics.

We were told that everything would be okay re Tax Credits cuts and employers would be encouraged to pay more.


I didn’t think this would hold water; encouragement isn’t worth the paper it is written on as they say.

Chancellor George Osborne done the right thingt, although some call it a U-turn, I think it more it is more like understanding the impact at the ‘rockface’.

About 4.5 million people rely on Tax Credits depending on what figures you look at, we are talking billions of pounds, when people criticise the House of Lords, remember that they rejected the plan.

This unelected body that some people so despise as being out of date, today we see yet again, it has value and it is an essential part of our democracy.

The Chancellor surprised Westminster on Wednesday by ditching the bulk of the controversial cuts to the benefit, but the fight still goes on, good governance requires good opposition to act constructively.

Another interesting development was the announcement that Osborne was protecting police budgets, some say this is his pitch for PM when David Cameron steps down, maybe aye maybe naw. The Paris attacks make the case for protecting our police service, we are seeing trouble in Europe and we will see trouble here, which is why everyone in Britain should stand together to protect our communities.

When a bomb goes off, it doesn’t matter what religion you are.

I would say we need more listening by the Conservative Government not just on issues that make the national press or gain traction in the public domain, politics is supposed to be about listening to the people you represent.

Shadow chancellor John McDonnell made a stir when he brandished a copy of Chairman Mao's Little Red Book in the Commons, I am sure that I wouldn't have went that way myself, but part of politics is theatre and a bit of drama at the budget adds spice, if done right.

The budget can be rather dry which is why I don’t tend to watch it, instead I do to the highlights and pick out the good bits.

In an interview with Good Morning Britain, the shadow chancellor said:

"I was trying to draw attention to the fact, with a bit of irony, that actually what George Osborne is doing is selling off British assets to the Chinese People's Republic. Now I find that deeply ironic."

He added:

"We are now debating one of the issues I wanted to raise. It worked."
Mr McDonnell said that producing the book, which he had from his days as a politics student, had been a "self-deprecating joke".

Although I don’t agree with his method, he does raise an interesting point; countries that continually sell off their assets leave themselves vulnerable. Greece is a case in point, assets sold off and their financial hole just keeps on getting deeper. We need our assets, we need to develop new ones in multiple fields, the more of a surplus we can run, the better the country can weather storms.

Apparently there is supposed to be a £27 billion windfall resulting from better-than-expected forecast tax receipts and rock-bottom debt interest rates, we should invest this wisely in paying down our debts and supporting businesses.

Certainly there is a debate to be had over welfare, but there is also a debate about not punishing people who are trapped, more needs to be done to address their needs in terms of prospects, social mobility and opportunities.

I favour a revamped DWP which gets people the training they need, along with my other ideas on welfare which I have floated in the past to help social mobility.

I would say George Osborne has made his pitch for PM, but he will have to deliver more to those at the bottom of society to win people over. It would be interesting to see a return to the old style of Conservatism which was prominent in the 1970’s, whose members were sometimes called the ‘wets’.

The Mad, the Sad and the Ugly, SNP MP Natalie McGarry resigns the SNP whip, her ‘pal’ Shona McAlpine throws accusations about that WFI are ‘bullies’, and unpopular Nicola Sturgeon refuses to suspend McGarry, instead of being ‘statesmanlike’ Sturgeon yet again decides to ‘play the tradesman’, is this the "talent" who think they will lead Scotland to independence

Dear All

Labour Prime Minister Harold Wilson famously said:

“A week is a long time in politics”.

He was right, especially when you are in the public spotlight and the reason isn’t a feel good story.

Yesterday, someone remarked to me that they didn’t like the way that I wrote my articles on the blog, while I was on twitter, which is fine; everyone is entitled to their opinion.

My blog isn’t to everyone’s taste, that being said, the BBC mob in London do stop by along with other news outlets to get a sense of what the public think regarding a situation or story of topical and possibility national interest, the George Laird view.

My mood tends to mirror the general public mood, sometimes even before they know what that mood should be themselves.

Other people however do like my blog, I do opinion, but the basis of my opinions is formed reading about fact. I keep saying that the most damaging thing in politics is the truth; the truth at its core remains pure.

In my last post, I said that Nicola Sturgeon wouldn’t suspend SNP MP Natalie McGarry.

George Laird right again.

Nicola Sturgeon didn’t suspend Natalie McGarry, but she should have done, her reason was that she didn’t have enough information in her possession.

Natalie McGarry resigned the party whip only hours after Nicola Sturgeon refused to suspend her, you see the SNP is run like a cult; her auntie is the Presiding Officer of Holyrood. The SNP is made up of various little family groups which along with some others control the party.

It’s a cult.

I wrote if Nicola Sturgeon wouldn’t do something about Natalie McGarry’s involvement in promoting a hate account on twitter whose theme was sexual intercourse with children, why should people think she would do anything regarding the present scandal?

Police are investigating allegations that £30,000 has gone missing from the accounts of prominent pro-independence group, Women for Independence. An internal audit showed that large sums raised by grass roots supporters were unaccounted for which is still a mystery at present.

Natalie McGarry has denied any wrongdoing, closed her twitter account to the public and isn’t answering any questions.

In the case of Tommy Ball, who recently pled guilty at Glasgow Sheriff Court, I was told by Police that he stated that he had set up a parody account, he denied any wrongdoing; he has since closed his twitter account to the public and he isn’t answering any questions.

Here is another co-incidence regarding Natalie McGarry and Tommy Ball, both of whom had socialised together in the past, both removed themselves from the SNP in the ‘interests of the party’.

I am a firm believer in due process and justice, which is why on twitter; I have said that Natalie McGarry is innocent until proven guilty. I say this because despite the fact that I genuinely despise her with passion for what she did to me in the past, she is entitled to fairness and due process.

Even the worst in society deserve that in a democratic country, it is alleged that Women for Independence tried on several occasions to find out where the funds had gone by asking Natalie McGarry but she was unable to satisfy them with her answers. You would think if you were in such a position as her clearing this up would be a priority which supersedes all others.

You can't buy personal integrity like a tin of beans off the shelf at Asda!

Corporate governance is no laughing matter in any organisation regarding finance; people expect that records are kept and that those in charge dispense their responsibilities properly.

£30,000 isn’t a small sum of money, so where is the money?

McGarry was one of WFI’s Founding Members back in 2012 and was responsible for overseeing its finances it has been said. I read online that Shona McAlpine who was also named in my criminal witness statement regarding the Tommy Ball case has said the WFI are ‘bullies’.

During the night of the 18th September 2014 at the Scottish Referendum Count, I had occasion to report Shona McAlpine to Police Scotland, she marched up behind me screaming to get out of her way. The Police inspector said to me that they would take an incident report and keep an eye on her and Tommy Ball who was also in the hall.

I put no weight to anything Shona McAlpine says on any subject.  

Opposition parties, have rightly also focused on why Nicola Sturgeon refused to act, Sturgeon’s line was it was important to get a “balance” between expecting the highest standards of SNP parliamentarians and respecting “due process, fairness and a presumption of innocence.”

Okay, here is a question, if as Ms. Sturgeon says it was important to get a “balance” between expecting the highest standards of SNP parliamentarians and respecting “due process, fairness and a presumption of innocence”, why was Bill Walker suspended?

SNP MSP Bill Walker was facing a criminal investigation into smashing in women’s faces; did the SNP waive his right to presumption of innocence?

I would say that is a worthwhile question to put Sturgeon on the spot about, in the case of Walker, he was found guilty of 24 charges, at a time the SNP was trying to win the women’s vote during the independence referendum. Walker was as they say, ‘flung under the bus’; he was a liability to Nicola Sturgeon in her attempts to win women over to her cause.

Jackie Baillie, Scottish Labour’s public services spokesman, said:

“Natalie McGarry is right to resign the SNP whip. It is disappointing that as the leader of the SNP Nicola Sturgeon didn’t act earlier. We now need to know who knew what, and when, in the SNP about these allegations. Nothing short of full transparency from the SNP will be accepted by the Scottish public.”

As to Jackie Baillie’s argument that the allegations may “cast genuine doubt” on McGarry’s election in May, having thought about it, sorry I can’t buy into that one. The intimidation tactics used by Nationalists against Margaret Curran in my mind do more to “cast genuine doubt” on Margaret Curran’s right to have a free and fair election as prescribed under the European Convention on Human Rights and the Human Rights  Act 1998 than this event.

At present allegations are been made, but that is all they are allegations, I am sure that the Labour Party would dearly love a by-election, but that won’t be happening in the foreseeable future. I wouldn’t be calling for a by-election because there isn’t evidence in the public domain to justify it on this issue at present. What is available so far doesn’t look too good for McGarry, but what is interesting that her time at WFI is I would suggest in doubt now regardless of the outcome.

It has been stated that several of the WFI national committee members who demanded a police investigation are SNP candidates for the forthcoming Holyrood election. I was once told several in Glasgow SNP hoped during the Cowdenbeath by-election that Natalie McGarry would lose; apparently some people in the SNP don’t like her. I can’t say I blame them, I met others from Labour and Conservatives who feel the same way about her but they tend to keep their own counsel private.

Natalie McGarry has Aamer Anwar as her solicitor, he said that he has allegedly instructed “forensic accountants to obtain all the necessary information” for Police Scotland and WFI.

If that is true I find that hilarious because I don’t think Police Scotland and the WFI will be having their investigations led by anyone other than themselves. I would assume that the WFI accounts wouldn’t be open to McGarry or her representatives at present unless she is charged by Police Scotland. Then she would have a legal right to a copy of all evidence collected during the course of a criminal investigation. Since she isn’t charged with a crime, she doesn’t have a right to anything as far as my understanding of human rights goes, except her personal data held by WFI.

So, what does her solicitor mean when he allegedly says he instructed “forensic accountants to obtain all the necessary information”?

Isn’t Natalie McGarry under a legal duty not to allow a third party access to WFI accounts unless that is approved by the board of Women for Independence?

Isn’t that one of the principles of corporate governance?

Natalie McGarry can hand over her data presumably by a DSAR, if that channel exists, but surely that doesn’t entitle her to hand over data regarding the WFI without proper authorisation?

Does Natalie McGarry already have authorisation by WFI to allow forensic accountants to conduct an investigation into their financial accounts?

I don’t remember reading anything in the public domain from WFI saying that there is a joint investigation by McGarry’s representatives and the Police. As far as I have read the WFI board have alleged they made repeated attempts to ask McGarry to explain away their concerns, when they were not satisfied with information they received, they called in the Police.

Finally, to return to Ms. Sturgeon for a moment, she said it was important to get a “balance” between expecting the highest standards of SNP parliamentarians and respecting “due process, fairness and a presumption of innocence.”

Nicola Sturgeon is a vile nasty shallow hollow inept and entirely vacuous woman devoid of principles and integrity in my opinion, to see her clutching at straws during her TV interviews, hopping from one foot to the other, tight mouthed and then squealing like a pig, gave me a few moments of amusement yesterday as it may have done for others in watching this unfolding saga.

SNP Leader Nicola Sturgeon failed the leadership test yesterday; she played the ‘tradesman’ instead of the ‘Statesman’, a common fault in people who are common with lots of money who fail to rise to the occasion.

Open Letter to Nicola Sturgeon; ‘as you sow so shall you reap’, SNP MP Natalie McGarry has crossed her rubicon, you and Alex Salmond created a ‘rat ship’, given information already in the public domain re Natalie McGarry, she should be suspended from the SNP, it’s now a question of your personal integrity Nicola Sturgeon, do you have any left?

Dear Nicola

Well here we are again, SNP scandal which involves another one of your Southside Gang in Glasgow. You have surrounded yourself with the most despicable scum in Scottish politics, I am sure there must be a reason.

Is it a case of like attracts like?

I am sure that many people in the SNP read this:

At present the Labour Party are demanding that you suspend the rat that is SNP MP Natalie McGarry.

Labour don’t really know you as I do, I know that you are a rat, and I know that you know I know, perhaps that is why on ‘white paper day’ at Holyrood when you saw me you put your eyes to the ground.

Was it guilt?

Natalie McGarry using her own twitter account promoted a hate account on twitter the theme was sexual intercourse with children. 

If you won’t suspend Natalie McGarry for promoting a hate account all about discrimination, smears, and defamation, why would people think you would suspend Natalie McGarry for the latest scandal to emerge?

McGarry apparently has described you, Nicola Sturgeon as a role model.

I think she is right, you are a role model, a model on how to be shallow hollow inept and entirely vacuous leader devoid of principles and integrity. 

You, Nicola Sturgeon did nothing about the abuse directed against me, but your Southside gang which includes Jonathan Mackie, Natalie McGarry and Shona McAlpine, all supported the hate account on Twitter, along with the official account of Anniesland SNP.

They loved Thomas Ball’s account, and more than that they continued to socialise with him while he was doing it. 

Thomas Ball pled guilty on the 29th October 2015, you do remember Thomas Ball, remember when I took his photo with you and SNP MP Chris Stephens just up from the Southern General as the SNP organiser was late?  

The allegations about missing donations to Women for Independence (WFI) are very concerning as Jackie Baillie stated. Apparently it is also reported in the press that Natalie McGarry allegedly had the only access to the paypal account.

You can read that here:

As a commentator to my blog remarked:


Based on this, you have no option but to suspend Natalie McGarry from the Scottish National Party, you along with Alex Salmond created a ‘rat ship’, and instead of a crew charting a course to possible independence you allowed the ‘rats’ to run the ship.

Natalie McGarry is a rat.

During the Cowdenbeath by-election you described Natalie McGarry as a good pal, if you don’t suspend Natalie McGarry now; the dirt will also stick to you.

I personally don’t think you are capable of doing the right thing, you are a horrible nasty vile little woman who has clawed her way to the top using hate as a vehicle, you are no statesman, you have limited abilities; you are small, so small that Scotland will one day see you as you really are.

It doesn’t matter how many kids you hug, what acts of ‘kindness’ you do, it’s all an act, and it’s done to garner votes. 

Natalie McGarry is a rat and rats don’t deserve consideration, she got herself into this mess, and she should be abandoned until she gets herself out of it.

Labour MSP Jackie Baillie asks:

“Can you confirm when SNP officials, representatives or candidates at any level were first made aware of the allegations surrounding Natalie McGarry? Reports today confirm that seven of the WFI committee members who reported these allegations to the police are SNP candidates. Can you confirm when any of these people first became aware of the allegations? Can you confirm what discussions have taken place between SNP officials or senior elected members and these WFI national committee members about these allegations?”

I would also want to know the answers to these questions, and if anyone gave an answer I didn’t like, their ass would be removed as a candidate with immediate effect.

Natalie McGarry has crossed her rubicon, she is politically toxic, she should be gone by the end of the week, there is nothing to think about.

Yours sincerely

‘Gie’s yer fucking money or else’, Financial scandals keeping popping up regarding the Yes Campaign, latest shit to hit the fan is ‘Women for Independence’ set up by the odious SNP MP Natalie McGarry, tens of thousands of pounds are unaccounted for, Police Scotland have been called in, and Nicola Sturgeon employed a WFI member Kate Higgins as a special adviser, aren’t you glad you didn’t put your future in the hands of these clowns?

Dear All

Never a dull moment in politics as they say; especially when it concerns members of the pro-independence campaign.

Recently questions were asked about the financial situation of Hope Over Fear which is Tommy Sheridan’s bandwagon used as a vehicle to try and rebuild his image with the public. That story about Lindsay Jarrett resigning over her concerns about their finances made the press.

Next, we have a mystery, Mark or Claire?

This involved an investigation by people concerned about the activities of the twitter account called @clairerobsc1

After doing a bit of spade work over months, the investigators published their exclusive which said that Claire Robertson is actually a man called Mark Roberston who lives in Easterhouse.

One of the things which were flagged up was that people were sending money and food to this person.

Some people who gave money felt conned but despite this, ‘Claire Robertson’ gave an interview to the National.

Still claiming to be a woman!

Apparently only one person is registered as living in the flat in Easterhouse, Mark Roberston, this would tend to suggest that there is more than enough third party evidence for an investigation by Glasgow City Council regarding council tax issues. If Claire Robertson exists then ‘she’ would be able to give the council a breakdown of where she was previously living and also Mark Roberston could give an explanation if the council hasn’t been informed of a change of circumstances.

That story opens up a whole host of possibilities.   

We all know about the Michelle Thomson scandal, elected to the House of Commons, and then it comes out that her property empire was built on the backs of the sick and vulnerable. She still sits with the SNP but is listed as an independent, mired in shit and still clinging onto power.

The latest scandal to hit the headlines is the financial scandal involving Women for Independence; they are being investigated because there is a missing five-figure sum which can’t be accounted for.

Women for independence was seen by many as an SNP/SSP front, their campaign attracted a lot of media attention and was given a huge amount of air time as people connected to the SNP passed themselves off  WFI.

That was bullshit.

The group were set up in 2012 by dreadful wretched and odious Natalie McGarry who is now an SNP MP. Two other people involved were former Socialist MSP Carolyn Leckie and Kate Higgins. Higgins has since gone on to become a special adviser in the Scottish Government.

SNP MP Natalie McGarry was recently named a criminal witness statement for her involvement in assisting Tommy Ball in his hate campaign by using her twitter account to promote the hate account setup by Ball and pass it off as mine. Tommy Ball has pled guilty and is waiting to be sentenced, deferred for background reports.

At present the figure which is missing is alleged to be running into tens of thousands of pounds hence we have Police Scotland involvement.

A statement from WFI said:

“We have identified an apparent discrepancy between our income (via donations) and the expenditure which we currently have evidence of. Because of the potential seriousness of this issue, the right thing to do was to pass this matter to the police.”

It seems that there is a spate of stories which tend to suggest that the ‘better’ Scotland which Scotland’s ‘jolly fat man’ Alex Salmond and unpopular Nicola Sturgeon promised us was heading up by people with their noses firmly in the troughs, pigging out on other people’s cash and goodwill.

Remember the big play by Nicola Sturgeon that SNP women will get things done?

Maybe the odious Natalie McGarry of the SNP can go find the money and who has got it.

Touchy touchy, angry Nationalist accuses George Laird of running an SNP Hate Blog after read my blood and soil post on Nicola Sturgeon’s attempt to go from ‘fanny pad’ campaigner to ‘war leader’, never had a complaint on the blog from a ‘fanny pad’ stormtrooper before, his shame must have got the better of him, grown man campaigning on ‘fanny pads’ get some self-respect!

Dear Anon

"You are nothing but a keyboard warrior time you gave all your SNP hate a rest".

Firstly, I would like to thank you for taking the time to post to the blog.

As to your allegation that I am a 'keyboard warrior', I find that to be totally incorrect.

Did you by chance read this story in the press?

I put my money where my mouth is, and took Tommy Ball all the way to the Sheriff Court and won, he has pled guilty, another coward who likes to hide behind an anonymous account.

This case shows I am not 'keyboard warrior' by my actions, been called a 'legend' don't you know!

I have also been as guest on BBC 5 live, 'keyboard warriors' don’t really do that, do they?

I have attended many BBC debates and spoken as a member of the audience.

I don’t hide behind a fake account, another hallmark of the 'keyboard warrior'.

And the press, in various guises including the BBC in London drop by regularly to read my blog and it speaks for Scotland.

I don’t run an SNP hate blog, you can also find articles of me criticising other parties for their short comings, why should the SNP be exempt?

Don’t they deserve the same examination of them in Government and as a party?

No one from any other party apparent from the SNP has stopped by to complain, and how can you complain about the truth anyway?

No, I will keep writing the truth, isn’t the real reason that you are one of those guys who got sucked into Nicola Sturgeon’s ‘tampax’ campaign and now feel less than a man?

A grown man campaigning on ‘fanny pads’ what happened to having self-respect?

I don’t campaign on ‘fanny pads’ like Nicola Sturgeon. 

Finally, trying having the personal courage to post under your real name when making complaints, you might find that empowering instead of sneaking about like secret squirrel.

Yours sincerely
