So much for Salmond being the ‘master strategist’!
When I joined the SNP campaigning, it was 2008, the Glasgow East by-election was called; the Nationalists had three ‘contenders’ for the
Westminster seat. John
Mason, publicly unelectable Humza Yousaf, and a third person, Duncan Ross from , I sent one email. Glasgow University
That was to John Mason.
Yousaf and Ross, I immediately dismissed as non contenders, Mason was out of the three, the most suitable to attempt to win the seat.
He did by 365 votes; it was the height of the
At that point, I believed the lie that the Scottish National Party stood for fairness, equality and social justice, as we have now seen, that is nonsense which props up the SNP under the banner of ‘civic nationalism’.
Inclusiveness which the SNP preach is as I said before a lie. This referendum campaign by the SNP was built around a centre left socialist coalition, the centre right nationalist were excluded from the SNP front Yes
It was designed to be Scotland
with Alex Salmond wanting to fight with Tory Prime Minister David Cameron. Salmond
knew he couldn’t win the argument with the people of Scotland so tried to rope in the
English, as I wrote, this campaign was a full blown anti English campaign.
Cameron wisely thought; ‘fuck this for a game of soldiers’ and stepped back which led to the Alex Salmond calling him ‘feart’. Salmond’s clique joined in, SNP MP Pete Wishart trying to be meaningful chipped his ten pence worth in. It would Better Together led by Alistair Darling who would ‘hold the fort’. Some people said he wasn’t the right choice, but I thought differently, he was steady, backed up with technical knowledge and experience.
The complete contrast to Salmond who was all mouth and no trousers!
At the Glasgow Count as the Emirates Arena, I watched as there was hushed silence as the results came in on the big screen. There was an eerie hush as each count was ready out, the Nationalists on tendered hooks hoping for good news. 32 areas were to be declared that night, and the SNP only managed to win 4.
28 losses, in the SNP heartlands, the people decided to reject Alex Salmond and unpopular Nicola Sturgeon’s poisonous vision.
Early on Friday after I fell out of bed, I pottered over the library and posted my historic video, Alex Salmond’s political career is over! And to fired up a blog post saying he had no choice but to resign. Later on in the afternoon, Alex Salmond resigned as
Scotland’s First Minister about
around 4 pm did so. I think I wrote somewhere possibly on twitter, 4.30 pm
would be fine with me. Sooner or later, everyone comes around to the George
Alex Salmond’s lifelong dream of an independent
‘master strategist’ my arse. Alex Salmond is an opportunist who had lived off
the wits of others and had begun to exhibit poor and dangerous judgment. He represented
a threat to the people of Scotland
and had to be putdown.
I saw it as basically a National security issue for the people of
economically and in terms of defence of the country.
Nationalists don’t leave people to die of cancer by refusing to pass on the drugs available to save their lives.
Nationalists don’t corrupt the justice system by lowering the bar of which a fair trial exists in name only.
Nationalists don’t lie; cheat, deceive and run a hate campaign and then stand back and let the wild animals run loose to harm others.
Alex Salmond had to be putdown.
On Friday, a hastily convened press conference was arranged because lets get it right, independence was all about the Alex Salmond legacy; he ended his career in front-line politics at the official
Edinburgh residence, Bute House.
But let us remember this; his legacy is delivering a country divided by hatred, the Yes campaign was engineered that it sprouted gang warfare and football style hooliganism harnessed as a political weapon. Unleashing mobs isn’t political activism; disrupting opponents meetings isn’t political activism, whipping up anti English hate isn’t political activism.
All that Alex Salmond managed in reality to do over two years was to convince 37% of Scots to vote for independence. A rather large part of the population didn’t vote, in
as much as 25% of people didn’t turn out. In a prepared statement read to
journalists, Salmond said he was “immensely proud” of the hard-fought campaign.
Alex Salmond in another example of petty mean spiritedness has now said that Scottish voters were ‘tricked’, in an already heated and divisive campaign, Salmond exhibits his total lack of statesmanship.
very lucky that the people rejected him and Nicola Sturgeon. Having lost he is
fostering dissent and hatred, already there is talk if the SNP win the 2016
election they should declare, UDI, Universal Declaration of Independence. This
is illegal and as Professor Adam Tomkins has said ‘bonkers’. Independence cannot be bought, stolen or
obtained illegally; it has to be won through the ballot box. What is going on
at present is starting to sound like Eastern Europe and ‘Balkanisation’, a
prelude to civil unrest and Scotland
descending into an abyss.
“I am also proud of the 85 per cent turnout in the referendum and the remarkable response of all of the people of
participated in this great democratic, constitutional debate and of course the
manner in which they conducted themselves.”
If the SNP attempt to seize power by force illegally, the Scottish Parliament should be suspended and martial law declared. If a single person is killed, everyone connected with this ‘adventure’ should spend the rest of their lives in prison without possibility of parole in
England. Jim Sillars,
who appears to think UDI is acceptable, is placing people’s safety in jeopardy by
filling their heads with dangerous nonsense. It is also highly unlikely that
Police Scotland would follow the Nationalists that means for UDI to be a
reality, the Nationalists would be arming a section of the civilian population.
Although MP5’s and G36 machine guns are good weapons, in the hands of untrained
civilians chances are there would be collateral damage to innocents.
In the West, the SNP leadership should also recognise how matters are dealt with when problems need to be addressed, what happened in Iraqi and
in both countries, the leaders didn’t fair very well, particularly Gaddafi who
was murdered in cold blood. The SAS; Special Forces are not encounter groups,
they don’t do empathy, they just execute and remove threats, something for the
Nationalist staffers to think about it. They don’t shoot people in the leg,
they don’t do trick shooting of guns out of hands; they put two rounds in your
chest to shutdown vital organs and a third in your brain.
Apparently, the firm favourite to succeed Salmond is unpopular Nicola Sturgeon, who many women in Govan call an ‘arsehole’. If Sturgeon wins, it will be the first time that a ‘people’s arsehole’ becomes First Minister of Scotland. Sturgeon is as equally responsible for the shameful campaign run by the Nationalists and their allies, she was presented as the ‘face of independence’ and the people of
Scotland rejected her at the ballot
box. She has same guilt to bear as Alex Salmond, Sturgeon isn’t a unity
candidate, and history can’t be re written to present her as a ‘clean skin’.
Simply put, Nicola Sturgeon stinks to high heaven.
Interestingly Salmond said he intended to continue in his role as MSP for Aberdeenshire East, which begs the question, what use does unpopular Nicola Sturgeon have for an adulteress such as Joan McAlpine?
McAlpine should be binned as soon as possible, tossed on the back benches and told to take no part in SNP politics other than constituency work till her time runs out in this parliament.
Unpopular Nicola Sturgeon, if she becomes leader will lead the Scottish National Party into the political wilderness. A combination of dim and not nice coupled with common rather sums up her situation.
Nicola Sturgeon is unworthy of trust and unworthy of leadership.
In a footnote to the result in
Glasgow, the Nationalist campaign preached
Tory hatred on the doorsteps of the city to Labour voters. Their fantasy that
the poor would be helped was swallowed by the gullible who failed to grasp that
in the 7 years of SNP administration, Alex Salmond and unpopular Nicola
Sturgeon hadn’t helped them either.
As to me assisting in Salmond’s demise, this was necessary to protect the people from the disaster which lay in store because Salmond decided not to plan, his debacles over currency and the EU figure most prominently in his extensive list of failures. Any bid for independence must have a Scottish currency as a bench mark of any proper bid.
The Scottish National Party under Alex Salmond and unpopular Nicola Sturgeon has become a ‘rat ship’, one of the rats, the King Rat isn’t jumping ship; he is just slipstreaming up the back presumably with Joan McAlpine.
Post Salmond, we are now entering the era of Sturgeon, the ‘era of tokenism’, if you are white working class and heterosexual, you are shit out of luck dealing with the Sturgeon Empire.
Think of it as ‘business as usual’ for the Scottish National Party.
Time for a quote:
“My problem is that I have too many talented people and not enough Cabinet positions”.
“Now, you don’t have a Cabinet”!
