Open letter to Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh, you didn’t get my vote, after visiting several polling stations, I saw no SNP activists standing outside, why is Glasgow SNP unwilling to come out for an ex Tory Candidate or is it just on the basis you are a Sturgeon crony?



















Dear Tasmina

It’s ‘election day’ a time to get out there and stick up for your ‘principles’.

I notice online that the Ahdinnaeken blog doesn’t reckon much to yours.


It is a humourous look at the world of politics.

Anyway, I got down to my local polling station and cast my vote.

The big X.

The Scottish National Party, the party of grudge, grievance and malcontent didn’t get my vote.

You didn’t get my vote, Chris Stephens didn’t get my vote and the President of the SNP didn’t get my vote.

In Glasgow as you know, you are one of Nicola Sturgeon’s cronies, another being Chris Stephens who isn’t getting elected today or any other day.

After casting my vote, I decided to tour several polling stations to get a feel of the lie of the land.

No Glasgow SNP at any polling stations, I guess, the ‘Sturgeon effect’ of unpopularity has come into play.

No one is willing to come out for you as the ex Tory candidate Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh and Chris Stephens, Stephens let an Asian man be abused at Pollok SNP Candidate selection.

Regardless what anyone thought about whether he was suitable or not as a candidate, he deserves an equal chance, he didn’t get it.

So, no one willing to come out for you, this is terribly embarrassing having to rely on paid Nats.

Having played the race card, and Scotland’s ‘jolly fat man’ Alex Salmond having played the race card on your behalf, the SNP membership must have thought to themselves, Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh, no thank you governor.

I see however, see that paid MSP Nats are going about with you in Darnley; it is this like is a support group?

Interestingly, Political parties on all sides have used the European elections to call on Scottish voters to reject Ukip.

Obviously they don’t view you, Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh as a credible threat in public office.

I suspect they think you just want the money and the position.

The bottom line is that seven in 10 Scots back stricter immigration controls, a key part of Ukip's policy pitch.

You don’t.

You don’t agree with the majority of Scots or their views.

Last election, SNP and Labour took two seats each; with the Conservatives and the Lib Dems each taking one but Lib Dems are in meltdown is that your hope or do you think you can push out your Conservative counterpart Ian Duncan?

So there is in theory a seat up for grabs as you know.

If Ukip gets in it will rock the foundations of Alex Salmond and unpopular Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon’s unhappy little world.

Will Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh challenge Nicola Sturgeon for Glasgow Southside seat in 2016?

Will Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh be bought off by challenging Anas Sarwar?

I think everyone knows before a single vote is cast for SNP Candidate Selection that Labour MP Anas Sarwar will face a Glasgow SNP Muslim Candidate in 2015.

I mean it is unlikely that they will pick odious Natalie McGarry who imploded the vote in the Cowdenbeath by-election.

Mind use the word ‘imploded’ if talking about why McGarry couldn’t win in Glasgow.

Boosts your chances.

From 10,000 to 5,000 votes, McGarry killed off that Cowdenbeath seat stone cold dead.

Lost for a generation!

Alex Salmond, Scotland’s ‘jolly fat man’ is urged voters to reject what he described as the "appalling politics of intolerance" being peddled by Ukip.

But presumably accept the "appalling politics of intolerance" being peddled by the SNP.

Just to check, what are your views on homosexuality?

Do you agree with a SNP homosexual activist taking a street beggar up a dark alley?

Laughingly Salmond said:

"People of all political shades who want to stop Ukip can play their part and back... the SNP".

Any unionist voters stupid enough to be believe that guff?

Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh, you don’t deserve to be a MEP which probably explains why no SNP members were at the several polling stations I visited, they must think the same as me, they must be getting around to the George Laird view.

Eventually everyone does.

One thing you aren't a person who could lead Scotland to independence.

If she doesn't get elected, how long will it take her to blame the SNP and go and get a real job?

Seems like even SNP members don't rate her. Including all those Asians who voted her onto the list.

I cannot believe the gall of this lady. She is everything that is vulgar about wannabe politicians. She jumps from party to party. She is everything a Tory toff is, but she is hiding behind her fake persona so she can go to Europe, and make sure the world knows that she is mep.
Look into her husbands background. Infact look into her father in law. A pathetic gambler. This women needs to get out of politics, she is bad news.

Dear Anon

"Read by thousands"...read by three so far. Or is it just 2, eh George?"

No, commented on by three people.

Actually 623 people read that one post.

Do you know what this means?

It means you can't tell the difference between comments and views, possibly because you are mentally dense.

Hope this helps Nicola.

“George laird your obnoxious and condescending tone has made your article obsolete to me. Try a little humility and people might listen”.

Thank you for your feedback.

As to your suggestion, I am sorry but editorial control must remain with me, that is the one of the tenets of a free press.

Oh, and people do listen to what I say in vast numbers.
