Scottish independence: SSP and SNP members running little Yes Groups are banning Tommy Sheridan from sharing the same platform as them in the indy debate, various non entities speak out, so much for unity in the Yes Camp

Dear All

Alex Salmond and unpopular Nicola Sturgeon have a message for Tommy Sheridan, ‘you’re not welcome, you’re not good enough; you’re not one of us’.

All for one and one for all, three pro-independence groups are refusing to take part in debates involving disgraced politician Tommy Sheridan.

Sheridan was found guilty, he did his time, he is a member of the public, he has a right if he wishes to campaign.

Apparently Women for Independence which has SSP and SNP members running it, along with Generation Yes run by SNP members and Labour 4 indy which has SNP members turning up at their events had gotten together to say No!

When Sheridan was convicted, his conviction was largely based on testimony from former SSP colleagues. They said that Tommy Sheridan had confessed to visiting a swingers' club in Manchester.

Sheridan wants a comeback, he is using the Scottish independence campaign as a vehicle, he been to Yes meetings around the country and did an event alongside SNP MSP Christina McKelvie.

A source close to Women for Independence said:

"He's a liability. Given his behaviour towards women, it would be irresponsible for us as a women's organisation to share a platform with him."

Does that also apply to Campbell Gunn?

Labour for Independence said:

"We are not going to share a platform with him. He's too divisive."

Labour for Independence are campaigning against their own party, aren’t they too divisive?

Generation Yes (political suicide, Scottish region) said:

"We have no comment to make at this time regarding the issue."

Who likes a shitbag, probably waiting to be told what their opinion is.

­Radical Independence Campaign (Scottish bams living in a dream world), does not allow Sheridan to share its platform.

And who cares what they think anyway!

Pro-independence figures believe Sheridan is piggy-backing on the independence campaign to gain publicity for an appeal against his conviction.

No shit Sherlock, gosh, some people can see the blindly obvious!

I guess, the unhappiness will just have to continue, Sheridan isn’t going anywhere, and come to think of it neither is Alex Salmond and unpopular Nicola Sturgeon.

Isn't it just terrible when political buddies fall out!
