It seems that
unpopular First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has done a U turn on Trident, the UK’s
If you think back to her maiden speech as SNP leader last November, she told delegates at the party’s annual conference:
“conference, hear me loud and clear when I say this: they’d have to think again about putting a new generation of Trident nuclear weapons on the river
Well the Labour Party didn’t think again, they just told Nicola Sturgeon to get lost, there is no deal to be had regarding the Trident Nuclear missile system being renewed.
If you think back to May 2012, I was part of the Big Debate audience at the BBC, at that programme, I said the SNP needed to support being in Nato and also support Faslane remaining as a Nuclear base.
‘jolly fat man’, First Minister and “strategic thinker” decided to back Nato
but not a Nuclear Faslane. Salmond,
At the referendum, the Scottish people spoke and rejected him and Nicola Sturgeon’s vision.
I, on the other hand, three years down the line have proved to be correct, after the SNP thinking they were going to be issuing demands, they are now finding out that they aren’t even part of the equation for Westminster.
There will be a new generation of Trident nuclear weapons on the river Clyde and this will secure jobs for people living in
Nicola Sturgeon is now backing away from Trident as a ‘redline’ for the SNP, this shows yet again how out of her depth she is politically in matters relating to the global defence network which Nato plays a key role.
Oh how that must hurt the SNP’s Sein Fein lite and CND cliques within the party, sold out by Nicola Sturgeon and her wee gang, maybe they will be waking to the dawn of a new reality, they are just being used as menials.
Unpopular Nicola Sturgeon is so desperate to get into bed politically with Ed Miliband that she is willing to drop anything in order to try and secure some kind of a win and concessions from a minority Labour government if it is elected.
So, what happened to the repeated calls in recent months that cancelling the £100bn replacement would be a critical issue for the party?
Like most people who don’t have any principles when they get big money, it was quietly forgotten by the Nats.
Fresh from betraying her own party members, and why not she is on about £143,000 a year, Sturegon argues that her party could comfortably vote for Labour policies on a case-by-case basis.
If you think that Labour gets free help you need to get a grip on reality, Sturgeon will try and squeeze Labour or withdraw support in an attempt to bring down the UK Government.
It was the SNP who in the late 1970’s ushered in the era of Margaret Thatcher which destroyed jobs for working class Scots in what was termed the ‘heavy industries’.
Sturgeon also implied she now saw Trident as a stand-alone question.
This means that the CND group within the SNP have no chance of realising their dream as the SNP has effectively abandoned the policy in all but name.
Sold down the river, the poor wee lambs!
Sturgeon has repeatedly said support for Labour means cancelling Trident’s replacement; she did this to bolster her standing among the SNP’s activist base, anti-nuclear campaigners and smaller left-wing parties.
Having mislead the public during the referendum, I wonder how many of her own party actually thought she would treat them with the same kind of contempt, they are seeing they have been used and treated as mugs!
Labour officials say privately there is no prospect of Miliband agreeing any deal with the SNP that forces him to cancel Trident.
Game over Sein Fein lite and CND in the SNP!
As well as Trident being a non starter, Miliband wouldn’t sign up to more powers that boosts the SNP’s chances for another majority government in 2016, and Milband has to think of the English domestic situation if he wins.
As to Sturgeon’s plan to make the SNP a centre-left force at Westminster forging alliances with the Welsh nationalists Plaid Cymru and the English Green party, that lot might as well just go out and feed the pigeons, do the clubs and visit the sites.
Nothing will come of that one; the ‘grand coalition’ wouldn’t be so grand post election.
she does or even if the SNP increase the number of its MPs, Miliband won’t be dancing to her tune.
Finally, I find it highly amusing the some of the grievance groups who joined the SNP to foster their various wee agendas are now finding out that ‘comrade’ Sturgeon has stabbed them in the back.
I said in previous posts that Nicola Sturgeon is a rat.
Who can deny yet again, George Laird is right again.
