I came across this heartfelt story online which so moved me and tugged my heart strings so I decided to post it.
It seems that Yes Campaigners have a problem with young kids saying No thanks!
Here is Elizabeth's tale:
“Whilst on the way home today my boy was stopped 4 times by yes campaigners. On the first three occasions he politely told them he wasn't interested he was voting no. On the fourth occasion he got a bit annoyed and told the guy "Look mate I've told you lot more than once I'm not interested and I am not going to have changed my mind in three minutes. Leave me alone".
The yes man turned and walked away and muttered "ya fucking arsehole". John heard this and bearing in mind he had had a rough day lost the plot and roared at him " If you call me a fucking arsehole again. I will show you what how much of an arsehole I can really be." Yes man took to his heels. He said a wee old woman had watched the whole thing and said to him. Well done son their the arseholes. Just goes to show they really do have a problem with the word no. And they seem to be targeting the youngsters”.
Things are so desperately bad in the SNP with the meltdown continuing that the Yes side is becoming more and more frantic, more and more deranged.
If you are out campaigning regardless of whatever side you have chosen to follow, if someone wants to vote Yes or No, just thank them for their time.
As I said previously there is a real lack of talent in the Scottish National Party, the party activists are basically ignorant, but then we should remember this was the fault of Allison Hunter who trained up the current crop of SNP elected members. I worked with Ms. Hunter and experienced first hand how ignorant she could be on a work day in Govan.
Allison Hunter rarely came out in the Ward, on the day she did, four people turned up, Chris Stephens (candidate), Richard Bache, Hunter and me, after the session ended, they all jumped in her 205 car and left me standing in the street. "You can make your own way back" said Richard Bache, although there was a spare seat in the car and they were driving along the long road I had to walk back. I would never have done that to an activist, but then I learned teamwork and leadership in the British Army.
The SNP seems to teach people in positions to act like pigs.
Anyway I hope this mother’s tale will remind you and your activists good manners cost nothing.
Remind them that if they aren't nice people, tell them to "fake it", like your hair colour.
Finally, I noticed Alex Salmond isn’t doing too well with this indy lark, MacAskill looks depressed and the SNP back benchers are well unhappy.
Do they now realise that George Laird was right again on the fact there was no A Team?
