The SNP is a ‘rat ship’; the Scottish independence referendum was a ‘dry run’ for the use of terror tactics against politicians and members of the public who spoke out against the SNP cult and how it operates.
Rather than putting a stop to it, the SNP leadership of Alex Salmond and unpopular Nicola Sturgeon sat back and allowed their members and ‘allies’ to use intimidation, this is reminiscent of Adolf Hitler and Rudolph Hess, the Nazi leaders of 1930’s Germany.
Adolf Hitler was a great fan of being photographed with German youth, in this Westminster 2015 election, unpopular Nicola Sturgeon it seems has an ‘emergency child’ to put out every time she does a ‘stage managed’ spontaneous ‘meet the people’ event.
At the same time, Sturgeon’s SNP Activists have been using intimidation tactics in Glasgow East were the odious Natalie McGarry is the Nationalist candidate. In politics, it is quite wrong and utterly disgraceful to disrupt people’s attempts to stand for political office.
Margaret Curran was elected as the Labour MP in 2010 in Glasgow East, she fought a good campaign and deserved to win, I was campaigning at that time for John Mason of the SNP. Despite warning him that he was in danger of losing the seat on two distinct occasions, he didn’t address the issue and lost by circa 13,000 votes. In 2015, Margaret Curran is standing again, this time things are different, she is being ‘hunted’ by the SNP in one of the most sinister episodes in the history of Scottish politics.
Hunted by SNP members, it isn’t just intimidation of the candidate but also intimidation of voters. During the independence referendum in Pollok, I witnessed the recording of female BT activists by Nationalists, later on SNP Candidate Chris Stephens who was part of the Yes Scotland rabble was later removed by Silverburn security staff.
Why didn’t he stop the filming of a woman?
Another good question is why did he do nothing when an Asian man was abused at the Pollok SNP selection meeting?
Back to Glasgow East, the SNP members seem to think it is acceptable to follow Margaret Curran around, they think it is okay to film her, and when she goes to speak to a voter, they think it is okay to shout at her as she tries to engage with the public.
When the incident happened one of the Labour campaign team tries to reason with the male SNP member called Piers Doughty-Brown.
He screams back:
“We’re in a public street – we don’t need permission.”
When asked to stop the intimidation tactics, the reply is:
“Are you a police officer? Then go away from me, and go away from me now.”
On his Facebook page, Piers Doughty-Brown wrote:
“Long day hunting with Helen Tennant, but it paid off in the end when we cornered Margaret Curran.”
When the incident became public, the odious Natalie McGarry said Mrs Curran was a “fair target for community justice”.
One wonders if Margaret Curran will get any more ‘community justice’ from SNP members, it rather looks at some point that violence will be coming down the track. If SNP members decide that violence is the way to go, they might reflect on the fact that there is always space in prisons and when a fight breaks out people have the legal right to defend themselves.
Frank McAveety, the Labour councillor said:
“People getting filmed is a regular feature. There’s been incidents where our street stalls have been filmed by two people simultaneously – one on foot, one in a car. We’ve had women canvassers intimidated by groups of men. They get shouted at – things like ‘you’re finished in this town’, like it was the Wild West or something. It’s targeted disruption, a very fevered atmosphere.”
It seems yet again the SNP really do love filming vulnerable women, single women are it seems easy prey for groups of men.
Interestingly, although the SNP continually claim that the cybernats are nothing to do with them; if you do a bit of research you can see one of the worst of the cybernats at a party with an SNP Minister. Although in public the SNP distanced themselves from the person, in private it is a different story. And of course, it is no surprise that the odious Natalie McGarry was at another event where that individual was socialising with elected SNP politicians.
Something to think about, a Scottish political editor says that one of his colleagues did a senior SNP person a favour at a difficult time and was asked what he wanted in return.
Call off the cybernats, he said. “It stopped overnight,” says the political editor.
I don’t think that will happen in Glasgow East for Margaret Curran.
In Glasgow East, my message to the people is simply this, Vote Margaret Curran.
