I voted in the European Election, now the contest is over, here is how I voted.
I voted Ukip.
The reason I voted for Nigel Farage's Ukip party, it was a protest vote against the Scottish National Party and its leadership of Scotland’s ‘jolly fat man’ Alex Salmond and unpopular Nicola Sturgeon.
They run a 'rat ship'.
Time for a quote by SNP:
“It’s not where you come from but where you are going that is important”!
Bashir Ahmad, SNP MSP.
“Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh, you are not going anywhere”.
David Coburn representing Ukip has become Scotland’s first Ukip MEP, oh how it must hurt for Tasmina, so many Conservatives getting elected and her tossed aside, not even looked at.
Alex Salmond rather stupidity played the race card, something which Tasmina Ahmed–Sheikh previously done in leaving the Conservatives.
As you know I am a bit of a scribbler and wrote some articles because it was important that Tasmina Ahmed–Sheikh was defeated, she doesn’t deserve to be an MEP.
Scotland’s unpopular Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said of the result that it was spectacular for the Nationalists.
Try looking through the right end of the telescope Nicola!
You promoted a member of your clique to the hilt and got handed your political ass badly!
Ukip's shock breakthrough gives the Scottish independence campaign a serious problem for the Nationalists; people aren’t listening to them; the problem is a major one.
Ukip's David Coburn said:
"Ukip are not going to sit down and be quiet like all the other parties. The Ukip revolution has now come to Scotland. I will do my best to make sure I highlight the problems of the European Union. When I'm in Brussels I will do my best to make sure Scottish business and Scottish people know the daft schemes they're cooking up there to make our lives infinitely more awkward. My second mission will be to make myself redundant. I want to get out of the European Union at the first available opportunity, and that I will do. On the bigger picture, Ukip has done well on the British stage as a whole and the fact that we're winning in Scotland and got such a good score in Scotland - getting up to 14% in some areas - is something we're very proud of."
Returning Labour MEP David Martin said SNP leader Alex Salmond has allowed Ukip in by polarising the debate in Scotland.
"I'd like to suggest to David Coburn that the first thing he does when he sits down and recovers from the champagne is write a letter to Alex Salmond because there is no doubt in my mind that Alex Salmond's decision to polarise the campaign, the Scottish debate, between two extremes is why David Coburn is with us today as a member of the European Parliament."
David like me knows that playing the race card is just bad politics.
Alex Salmond might as well have hung a sign around Tasmina’s neck saying, ‘I’m a English Muslim who wants mass immigration to take your Scottish jobs’.
Alex Salmond..... Master Strategist!
Rather than presenting a positive vision, Salmond and Co had none to offer but tried and 'put the frighteners' on people, the SNP at the EU are a waste of space, they have done nothing of note, and then Salmond and Sturgeon wanted to saddle us with Tasmina.
I said Naw!!!!!!
And I mean Naw!!!!!!
What do I mean......I mean Naw!!!!!
The real Conservative candidate who did win unlike Tasmina was Ian Duncan, who takes over from the retiring Struan Stevenson.
"We've bucked the national trend and it is a reminder that we have much to offer the people of Scotland."
Well, I would think two seats would be need before any type of we are making a comeback could be uttered, I wished him good luck prior to the vote, he at least has principles.
The big loser was George Lyon for the Lib Dems, he is out!
Not his fault!
Not a surprise either but his party is falling faster than a stone in free fall off a multi block of flats.
So, to recap, the SNP got what they thoroughly deserved, Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh was defeated and rejected by the Scottish people, two Labour got back, one Conservative and David Coburn became a Scottish MEP.
George Laird right again.
Now, that is out of the way, will Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh position herself to take Nicola Sturgeon's seat in Holyrood in 2016?
