Yes Scotland comes up with unbelievably stupid idea to ‘gatecrash’ unionist conferences, IQ’s must be dropping if they are that desperate!
When Yes Scotland did their ‘Declaration of Cineworld’ launch, it was roundly condemned as a flop right across the political and social spectrum.
At the time I said they need external oversight.
Then as the world turned, the Yes Scotland appointed Blair Jenkins formerly of the BBC as the Chief Executive along with Dennis Canavan as Chairman.
The latest piece of nonsense is that independence supporters think it is a good idea to ‘gatecrash’ unionist party conferences by attempting to hire a stall.
That’s right; some dimwit from the SNP-led Yes Scotland lobby wants to hire stalls at the Labour, Tory and Lib Dems’ annual gatherings.
There is an old saying better to say nothing and let people think you’re stupid than open your mouth and prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt.
Politically naïve chief executive Blair Jenkins said the move was designed to build a “broad church”.
He thinks this will attract diehard unionists to their cause for the 2014 referendum.
“We will be looking to attend the Labour, Conservative and Lib Dem conferences later this year and early 2013. The reality is there are people at all levels who believe in an independent Scotland including many thousands of Labour, Lib Dem and Tory voters.”
Speaking of reality, no one is stupid enough to allow what is seen by many as an SNP front into their conferences.
A Holyrood source said:
“They’ll be about as welcome as a hand grenade.”
Scottish Tories branded the move a “gimmick” and that is what it is, an unintelligent, badly thought-out, divorced from reality gimmick.
The Tories spokesman added:
“It smacks of another gimmick by the separatist campaign, who’ve got their hands more than full trying to convince their own supporters of the need to break up the UK.”
The Lib Dems and Labour said they’d “consider” the applications.
This is code for not a chance, citing that demand for stalls at conferences “is in high demand”.
There is a term called blue sky thinking used in business were people get together and off the top of their head spout out stuff in the hope that the ‘wisdom of crowds’ will occur and good ideas will flourish.
Trying to gatecrash the conferences of other political parties is tactically wrong and misguided and the fact that such ideas are seen as viable proves how out of touch and desperately poor Yes Scotland is at present.
What a pile of sh*t, maybe someone should blue sky IQ testing in Yes Scotland.
Blair Jenkins previously said:
“I’m not a member of any party and I’ve never engaged in any form of political activity.”
And it shows!
