It is news almost so bad that Scotland’s ‘jolly fat man’ Alex Salmond would wonder how the hell he got into this mess.
Two-thirds of voters in the north and north east of Scotland want the country to remain in the UK.
Awhile ago, Alex Salmond said:
“My problem is that I have too many talented people and not enough Cabinet positions”.
That is another one of his delusions.
Law and order, health and education, the big three, are all a shambles.
In the recent poll conducted by the Press and Journal newspaper which incidentally have dropped by this very blog on occasion, they have dropped a bombshell on the Nats.
Only a miserable 17% of people agree that Scotland should be an independent country.
I guess Salmond will have to downgrade his “too many talented people” gag!
65% of Scots want to remain part of the UK.
The bad news just keeps on coming!
This has been caused because the Alex Salmond Party within the Scottish National Party has failed to put together an A Team.
Then there are the lies, doesn’t help matters, the bad law, the laziness, the lack of vision etc etc.
As the ‘face of independence’, Scotland’s unpopular Deputy First Minster Nicola Sturgeon is supposed to be increasing the vote, she is also supposed to be reaching out to the undecided to win all them over.
Sturgeon can’t win the men’s vote and she can’t win the women’s vote either and the youth vote comes back as a resounding No!
As in No, No, No!
18% of voters were undecided.
So what does it say that people in Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Moray, Inverness and the Highlands and Islands, the SNP heartlands under Alex Salmond are rejecting independence?
I would suggest they know more about Salmond’s lack of abilities than most.
The good news /bad news scenario was published as both the UK and Scottish Cabinets were meeting in the north east of Scotland.
And more bad for unpopular Nicola Sturgeon, 80% of people surveyed said their voting intentions had not changed in the last six months
So, nothing that Sturgeon does have made any difference, not even using the infamous ‘angry wee Nat’ routine.
North East MSP and director of the pro-UK Better Together campaign Richard Baker claimed:
"This poll will be a huge source of embarrassment to the nationalists on the day their Cabinet is meeting in an area they would consider to be their heartland”.
"It should come as no surprise to anyone to see these results. People understand the massive impact going it alone would have on our vital oil and gas industry."
I guess, it is time to start working for Alex Salmond to start on that resignation speech, obviously he will want to hit the ground running when the massive No vote comes in as Better Together win a landslide victory.
No A Team; No independence!
Time for a quote from as far back as the ‘Declaration of Cineworld’ by George Laird:
“Rather than 'The A Team' it looked more like 'The GAY Team' in nature”
George Laird right again!
