Scottish Independence: Scot Govt set to pump extra cash into Nicola Sturgeon’s brief, you can’t buy independence or popularity, it has to be earned!
Awhile ago I tweeted on Twitter that since Nicola Sturgeon was moved from health that more money would be pumped into her new portfolio.
It was a throw away comment after a very quick analysis.
Now, Finance secretary John Swinney has pledged to pump fresh cash into the ailing construction sector.
Do you see how easy it is to understand politics!
And if you regularly pop by this blog, I stated in advance that the UK would be entering a double dip recession.
That was also easy as well, although a lot of politicians expressed genuine surprise for getting it wrong.
Hardly in the door at health and Alex Neil is already talking about budget constraints.
It would be entirely stupid to strip out health spending and for money to appear on Nicola Sturgeon’s desk for construction.
You can’t buy independence, and you can’t buy popularity.
There is a new report on the Government Economic Strategy (GES) which sets out action to assist capital investment and address youth unemployment.
I marvel at how certain people in politics have come to the conclusion that ordinary working class are so stupid that they can’t see through this type of tactic.
John Swinney said:
“Accelerating sustainable economic growth, with opportunities for all people across Scotland to flourish, remains the focus of this Government and the work of our agencies. This progress report sets out how the Government Economic Strategy continues to drive action across the public sector to deliver this Purpose. The priorities and actions set out last September remain relevant and as I prepare our Budget for growth I am actively exploring what more this Government can do to boost jobs and growth in the construction industry”.
“Next week’s Budget will build on the foundations for long-term economic prosperity that we set out in 2007 and focuses our actions on six Strategic Priorities which will accelerate recovery, drive sustainable growth and develop a more resilient and adaptable economy.”
What the Scottish Government is doing is to attempt to create an artificial bubble in the run up to the 2014 independence referendum.
I previously said there will be a major crash in Scottish Government finances because this type of nonsense is temporary and unsustainable.
When the crash comes after the independence referendum, Ms. Sturgeon will be moved out of her current position.
And looking around, presumably she will want to go back to her previous brief at health.
It was a mistake to move her from health, but this wasn’t as many people think done all of an instant.
Nicola Sturgeon joins the board of Yes Scotland, Yes Scotland sets up premises in Glasgow, so looking at this series of events, this looks to be planned in advance and thought out.
If Alex Salmond wants to accept my terms and conditions for a bet that he, Nicola Sturgeon and Yes Scotland won’t deliver independence, please get in touch.
I am quite happy to take your money and more importantly spend the winnings afterwards.
Propping up the brief of Nicola Sturgeon stores up trouble for the SNP Government as it involves asset stripping other departments!
Stupidity really is a poor substitute for intelligence.
Finally, a lot of press are doing a build up of Nicola Sturgeon, Alex Salmond joined in with his Nye Bevan ten pence worth, makes the fall even harder.
Nicola Sturegon is going to save independence?
Please Salmond send her back to health, admit you made a mistake and try not to get too creative in future.
