A few blog posts ago I stated:
“Finally, I don't think I would have Nicola Sturgeon as my advocate, might as well have a big sign up saying Guilty!!!!!”
In Aberdeen, Alex Salmond dropped the ‘jolly fat man’ guise and had a go at Aberdeen City Council.
The row has escalated and become quite bad tempered as Labour in the shape of council leader Barney Crockett has decided to stand up to Alex Salmond.
Salmond has been called a ‘bully’ and a ‘liar’.
Donald Trump, the US billionaire is also less happy about Salmond branding him “dishonest”, “untrustworthy” and “lacking in integrity”.
In order to try and shut down the growing row in the SNP heartland, Scotland’s unpopular Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon was dispatched to ‘calm the waters’.
So did Scotland’s unpopular Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon ‘calm the waters’?
Like throwing petrol on a fire it appears, the talks apparently went quite badly.
Time for a quote by Alex Salmond:
“My problem is that I have too many talented people and not enough Cabinet positions”.
Alex Salmond yet again after ‘shouting the odds’ is reduced to hiding behind a woman.
For example when at Wimbledon watching the tennis, the First Minister was quick to drop his wife in it regarding the flag stunt which backfired on him.
I think that the term a ‘grass’ is appropriate on this instance, a ‘grass’ is someone who generally sells out someone to the authorities in the hope of getting something to their advantage.
Hissing sounds generally follow with emphasis on the prolonged hiss.
During the Aberdeen fiasco, Alex Salmond made an extraordinary attack on the "extreme" and "kamikaze" council.
How lower middle class of him!
Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and Aberdeen council leader Barney Crockett have had an impromptu summit to defuse the increasingly bitter row between the Government and the local authority.
‘Social justice’ lawyer Nicola Sturgeon lost that case, despite the usual platitudes from both parties about the need to work together, Council leader Barney Crockett when asked if the talks had helped to soothe relations he replied:
"I would have to say no, to be honest."
The Labour council still pressing for an inquiry into the First Minister's school visit, this is when Alex Salmond entered a school without the permission or knowledge of the head teacher and gave a speech during the ill-tempered Donside by-election.
I can’t see the logic of sending Scotland’s unpopular Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, people have seen her angry wee Nat act; this was another political blunder.
Alex Salmond isn’t a Statesman, no Statesman hides behind women.
