In the last dying days of the Alex Salmond referendum, truth has been ‘casualty’ in the Nationalist side right from the start.
It seems that Scotland’s ‘jolly fat man’ Alex Salmond has said that both Yes and No have stretched the truth to win arguments.
In other words he is saying that under his watch and unpopular Nicola Sturgeon’s, the SNP have effectively engaged in lies and deceit.
But that is okay in his opinion because his defence for acting like a ‘rat’ along with Nicola Sturgeon is that Better Together is also doing it.
A simple message I had at the start is a chicken coming home to roost…. tell the truth, publish everything and answer truthfully every question and be pro active.
That is why I said over two years ago that there should be a plan.
Alex Salmond and unpopular Nicola Sturgeon didn’t do any work, they then laughed in our faces when they told the public this fact, the bid for Scottish independence is a pure fraud on the people of Scotland.
Another opinion which the SNP is punting is the myth of an independent Scotland achieving “full employment”.
This is the nonsense that John Swinney is now engaged in promoting, if there is a real casualty in this independence bid it is the destruction of John Swinney’s reputation.
Anyway, Swinney says he has a blueprint to get almost 200,000 Scots into work.
Every Scot who is “willing and able” to work should have the opportunity according to the Jobs Plan for an Independent Scotland.
Regardless whether you believe in the merits of independence, this is rubbish, no country in the world has full employment, and full employment doesn’t mean everyone would have a job.
Swinney’s full employment which is bogus will mean the jobless rate is driven down from the current level of about 6.9 per cent by about a third.
The Unionist camp has just been offered another open goal as they accused the finance secretary of “picking jobs figures out of the air”.
Recently I was talking to people about how the SNP would be entering the ‘goodies phase’ of their campaign.
Anyone fancy a bite of a shit sandwich?
Oh well suit yourself, Alex Salmond and unpopular Nicola Sturgeon got a load delivered and expect you to swallow anything.
One of the proposals of the Swinney plan is cutting corporation tax; this means a race to the bottom which in turn will bring in less money to the government.
Another laughable idea is boosting international exports and productivity, does the SNP think businesses aren’t trying to sell as much as possible to customers?
The blueprint also touches on the idea of getting a generation of women back into the workplace to create a jobs boom after a Yes vote which is also nonsense.
Scots women aren’t to be conned, and are making their feelings known in vast numbers, support for Alex Salmond is crashing through the floor.
The blue print also sets out proposals to “re-industrialise” the country with a major emphasis on boosting manufacturing and promoting innovation.
This is just talk; we won’t be a mini Germany because the manufacturing doesn’t have the skill base which is needed to be built up over generations.
The report said:
“The Scottish Government believes that full employment in an independent Scotland is a realistic goal”.
This is just fantasy, it is delusional thinking, and it is sheer rubbish.
The ten-point plan isn’t based on facts but on assumption and hope such as creating 27,000 jobs with a 3 per cent cut in corporation tax rate to temp companies away from London.
Why leave a huge market for a 3 per cent cut that is poor business judgment.
The SNP are so desperate for votes that they are trying to buy the independence vote on false promises that they cannot deliver, we have entered the ‘goodies phase’.
But it won’t be ‘Goodies…….. goody goody yum yum’.
Don’t believe a bloody word out their mouths, Vote No!
