“Dear George Laird”
Am I dear?
“there has been a Shetland independence movement for many years. As a democrat, I support the right of any community to determine their own affairs, if they so wish”.
So, if Glasgow was declare they wanted to be an independent city state like Monaco, you would back it?
Exactly how far does your idea extend?
Independence for a constituency, ward, a street?
“I am glad to see you endorsing that view. I am also glad to see you clarifying that you still support Scottish independence”.
I have been a supporter all my life.
“But why then vote No in the referendum?”
That is quite simple; it isn’t independence under any circumstances.
For example, would you support an ultra right wing government with a despot at the helm set up to benefit a few at the expense of the many?
Do you support a fascist state?
“Do you think there will be a better chance in your lifetime?”
There is always a better chance, the reason for that is that there are better people than Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon. They have turned the SNP into their own personal party, run by a nasty vicious clique.
Do, you remember how Salmond left Cancer sufferer Anne Fisher up shit creek, the despicable bastard.
What really is your opinion on that one?
You’re willing to follow people like Salmond and Sturgeon because you have been sucked in by their spin that they are “decent” people.
“There is no place for a nationalist party in an independent country, so the SNP as a party will cease to exist”.
Sorry, to disappoint you, the SNP will continue after independence, the reason is that the party is run by a nasty clique, and these people are so vile, nasty, stupid, ignorant and small minded they wouldn’t get selected by Labour.
They have nowhere to go; it’s a rat ship in the SNP, if you understand the concept Hamish.
“Scotland will be what the Scots want it to be, and I hope you would play a positive part in that”.
Did you forget that Nicola Sturgeon said that her ‘nationalism’ isn’t based on identity?
That means Hamish, your Scottish doesn’t count, in Glasgow, Team Sturgeon is run for the benefit of people round Sturgeon.
Why are so few born and bred Glaswegians, SNP Councillors?
Why are all candidates in GGC Govan Ward, all outsiders, and all Team Sturgeon cronies?
Can it all be coincidence?
Hamish, if you wish to campaign for Scottish indy, by all means, do so, but you will be wasting your time.
Completely wasting your time!
George Laird is always right, like I was right many times before.
Yes Scotland is an SNP front, and crony ridden as several Team Sturgeon little helpers got positions.
And the newest Yes Scotland board member, the little girl, her dad is in the Maryhill and Springburn SNP branch.
It’s a coincidence right?
Sadly, no matter how many SNP cronies go to Yes Scotland, collectively they couldn’t organise a course on ‘how to fuck a doorknob’.
Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon, (the best chance according to your thinking) are too fucking stupid to lead Scotland to independence. If you check this blog, you will notice a theme, I state something is going to happen and then it comes true.
Check out the blog post on Tory MP George Osborne brother who was a medic, I said he would get suspended for six months.
And he was suspended for six months, there are other examples, for example the Jo Yeates case, I wrote the solution 13 days before the arrest of the neighbour.
George Laird is always right Hamish.
I am voting against independence under Salmond and Sturgeon.
I suggest you do the same, but you should follow your conscience, my view is let people do what they want to do...... then let them accept responsibility for their actions.
