One thing about
‘jolly fat man’ Alex Salmond of the Alex Salmond Party (SNP North East
region) is that his word isn’t worth a damn.
You can’t trust him whether you are a poor working class Scot or an American billionaire such as Donald Trump.
Alex Salmond is lower middle class with a lust for power and a taste for luxury; he is rather common in his dealings which betray a distinct lack of breeding.
His word isn’t his bond.
Alex Salmond made a ‘promise’ not to talk about Scottish independence for the duration of
He promptly broke his self-imposed ban within few seconds.
The Nationalists have been warned not to use the Commonwealth Games as vehicle for independence however; it seems that Yes supporters plan to do just that by having Scottish Flags imprinted with Yes inside the venues.
When people think of sporting events being used for politics, the bench mark was the 1936 Olympic Games in Hitler’s
were Nationalists hoped to show Ayran superiority.
The Nationalists are so desperate to effect a ‘braveheart’ moment that they will attempt to hijack and use the sporting events to drum up support for a Yes vote. Piggy backing on the success of others as if they had something to do with it, quite frankly it is all rather pathetic.
The sight of Salmond’s rich Nationalists and Sein Fein lite republicans fawning over working class Scots sportsmen and woman like they are old pals is deeply offensive given the SNP under Alex Salmond and unpopular Nicola Sturgeon have done nothing but give lip service to the poor.
The Scottish National Party doesn’t stand for fairness, equality and social justice.
That being said, what does it say about the lack of moral fibre and personal integrity that Salmond displayed by using a press conference at the Games media centre to carry out a personal attack on George Osborne for being based in London?
It shows that as First Minister, he demeans the Office that he holds, and it isn’t the first time that Alex Salmond has done that, if we think back to Wimbledon Tennis, we saw the puerile spectacle of Salmond unveiling the Scottish flag behind the Prime Minister’s head when Andy Murray won
When the widespread criticism started coming in, Alex Salmond ‘grassed’ up his wife as an accomplice saying she had hidden the Saltire in her personal belongings, it rather suggests that the sudden show of national pride was pre-planned and therefore just a meaningless and crass stunt to attempt to kick start the failing and ultimately doomed Nationalist independence campaign which has had little effect as the polls continually show.
At the 2012 London Games, the SNP were less than enthusiastic as they continually carped about money and contracts in the House of Commons with SNP MP Pete Wishart making some really embarrassing statements. Matters were compounded by the fact that Salmond and his Cabinet attempted to politicise the London 2012 Olympics, urging Scottish people to get behind the ‘Scolympians’.
A crass term he invented to describe the Scottish competitors, the video of the SNP Cabinet being rather narrow minded instead of statesmanlike was a new low even for the SNP, what their message should have been was to wish Scottish athletes well and also the rest of the Team GB athletes.
Apparently both sides of the referendum campaign intend to maintain a low profile during the Games, that doesn’t mean much, campaigning will continue if either side can find people to work for them.
A spokesman for the pro-UK Better Together campaign said:
“Alex Salmond not talking about his obsession for ten days? He can’t even manage ten seconds.”
In stark contrast to Alex Salmond’s personal attack on George Osborne, the Chancellor also in
delivered a speech to a Commonwealth business conference.
He did not mention Alex Salmond during his keynote address, you don’t give oxygen to a loser like Salmond; you just ignore him.
Osborne used his speech to announced £5 million of funding for Glasgow School of Art’s new Graduate and Research Centre. As well that that ‘goodie’ he unveiled £17 million of UK Government money to support the life sciences centre in
and £1.7 million for a business centre in the city.
After the defeat of Alex Salmond and unpopular Nicola Sturgeon, the Nationalists will have to address the lack of breeding within their ranks and the pre-occupation and tendency to act like pigs.
Pigs with money are still pigs; the lack of breeding and personal integrity rather says it all, playing the tradesman instead of the gentleman.
