In 2012, Team Sturgeon was ‘politically ass raped’ by Glasgow Labour Leader Gordon Matheson at the ballot box.
Despite entering the race in what must have been the worst possible position that the Labour Party ever experienced, Matheson pulled off a historic win.
In the battle to win Glasgow, Gordon ‘free dinners’ Matheson faced off against the SNP’s Allison Hunter, a Sturgeon crony of unremarkable talent.
At the Sunny Govan Radio hustings and elsewhere, Hunter proved she wasn’t capable of winning the City of Glasgow.
She was and remains a dud!
Someone get that woman a blanket and some hot soup.
Since then, Team Sturgeon has been keen to take out Gordon Matheson for humiliating Nicola Sturgeon.
Dreams of building a Sturgeon power base vanished.
Nicola Sturgeon came to the SECC to hear the result, hoping her cronies would swept to power, the look on her face was different than 12 months previously, she walked in big smiles, she left looking like the angry wee Nat she is.
The George Square redesign was a contest which people could submit their vision for a revamp, the Commonwealth Games are coming up and the Square was looking less than impressive.
Unfortunately, the winning design voted for wasn’t enacted.
Apparently Gordon Matheson 'took the huff' because the one he wanted wasn’t picked; Matheson needs to learn the principle of one man one vote it seems.
Now; allegations of how the contest was run has plagued the leader of Glasgow City Council with Team Sturgeon jumping on the bandwagon calling for Matheson to resign over the fiasco.
Apparently Team Sturgeon getting shagged up the political arse has had such an effective on their fragile minds that they want to fuck Matheson up the political arse albeit delayed.
Nicola Sturgeon lost the battle of Glasgow in a fair fight, get over it, Labour played a superior hand; strictly speaking they could have played a weak hand and still beaten Sturgeon’s proxy Allison Hunter.
Things have gotten so bad that Matheson is being investigated by police over alleged misconduct during the £100,000 contest to redesign George Square.
The Major Crimes and Public Protection unit is on the job, over claims he interfered with the procurement process for the project.
Gordon ‘free dinners’ Matheson has said he is confident of being cleared of any wrongdoing.
The current proxy for Nicola Sturgeon is Graeme Hendry, the part time leader of the SNP Cllr group; he says Mr Matheson had caused “great embarrassment” to the city.
Presumably he hasn’t watched himself on TV!
Mr Hendry said:
“Councillor Matheson has been accused of some very serious offences and it is only right and proper they are investigated by all the appropriate organisations, including the police. It would be appropriate for Matheson to consider his position in the council, due to the great embarrassment he has caused the city and the damage he has done to the council’s relationship with the business community.”
This is from a man who said that he would hold Glasgow City Council to account than less than a couple of weeks later, reneged on that promise.
“Councillor Matheson’s behaviour during the judging process seems to have been highly inappropriate, and the council need to ensure procedures are in place to prevent this happening in the future, whilst also asking Audit Scotland to fully review the resources wasted.”
Given nothing has been proven, you would think that Hendry would wait until facts are established.
In an act of pure spite, the SNP group has submitted a motion to the next monthly full council in May proposing that Audit Scotland investigate whether any councillors unduly influenced the procurement process.
That motion has no chance of success, it is gesture politics for Nicola Sturgeon, and can a “gesture” really make up for Gordon Matheson doing the entire SNP Team Sturgeon campaign up the political arse?
The SNP motion states that “the debacle has damaged the reputation of this council amongst the architectural community and in wider public perception”.
One thing for certain is the people of Glasgow aren’t hanging on anything that SNP Sturgeon proxy Graeme Hendry says on anything.
In a statement issued by the council on his behalf, Mr Matheson said:
“I’m happy for this to be fully investigated. I will give whatever help the police ask me to and am confident there will ultimately be a finding in my favour.”
In other words, it seems that there is no paper trail of wrongdoing.
Gordon Matheson needs his rest, in 2017, he and the Labour Party will politically ass rape Team Sturgeon again, last time, he ‘took them in the rear’, this time, he might also ‘reach around and take them from the front’.
Team Sturgeon need to start grabbing hold of their political ankles now, clearly Glasgow Labour have defined who and who is not a political bitch in this city!
Attacking the gay guy, doesn’t still well with Glaswegians, Nicola Sturgeon should think on that next time she lets her attack dogs off the leash.
And we all see through the 'standing up for Glasgow' lie that she and Team Sturgeon promotes, they don't and the public know it now.
