Meine Ratten: unpopular Nicola Sturgeon backs SNP Westminster Candidate Brendan O’Hara exposed for using sectarian outbursts; the hypocrisy of the SNP position appears to be summed up as do as we say not as we do; is this return to old style Billy Wolfe hatred by the Nats?

Dear All

Some time ago, I said there was a real lack of talent in the Scottish National Party.

As the Earth continued to spin on its axis, the Sun rises and falls, unpopular Nicola Sturgeon finally admitted it, by getting outside candidates.

George Laird right again, and ahead of Nicola Sturgeon of ‘education got me were I am today’.

The list of dross so far!

Mhairi Black; the Paisley Braveheart, who in my mind is more like Nedheart (check out my youtube video; apologies for it being test material).

Neil Hay abusive to the elderly, and No Voters liken them as Quislings, and is a twitter troll without the bottle to do it under his own name!

Natalie McGarry, an obnoxious piece of shit.

Tasmina Ahmed-Shiekh, who on her way out of the door of the Conservative Party decided to play the 'race card' against them. 

Chris Stephens, who sat back and allowed an Asian Man to be abused during the Pollok SNP council selection meeting, denying the man, his right to a free and fair election, so much for being a social justice campaigner!

Now, we get another dud, this one is called Brendan O’Hara, he is standing in the seat of Argyll and Bute. His claim to fame is that he called Rangers supporters “Huns” on a Celtic fans’ website.

During the SNP fiasco that was the Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications Act, the SNP got its knickers in a twist as none of the other parties wanted to back this pile of tripe. Humza Youaf in a vain attempt to sell that shite, found he had oodles left over, no one wanted a bite.

My objection to this law is that it is bad law, as a Sheriff aptly put it, it is ‘mince’.

After being outed O'Hara was forced into an apology, ‘Huns’ is used as a bigoted term for the Ibrox club and their followers, however a case could be made that it is also a derogatory term to all Protestants.

So, what is unpopular Nicola Sturgeon doing about this incident?

Well nothing!

As I said the Scottish National Party is a ‘rat ship’, if you do a bit of digging, you can see that ‘Rat Scotland’ is well represented in this election. Going about the shop calling people ‘Huns’ can be a very sticky wicket indeed, as it appears use of the word can lead to people being convicted of a criminal offence in Scottish Courts.

To add further woes onto Nicola Sturgeon, O’Hara once described ex-Celtic striker Maurice Johnston as a “rat” who should not “show his face” in Glasgow.


Where have I read that before?

Oh, yes, I remember, I called Nicola Sturgeon and her husband Peter Murrell, ‘rats’, however both of these people as far as I am aware don’t play football, their ‘game’ is playing at being as ‘social justice campaigners’ while screwing over the working class. They have done quite well out of that one to the tune of over £250,000 a year.

Did you catch Eddy Mair ripping Nicola Sturgeon a new arse on the radio, a painful experience for any deluded SNP supporter to listen to, after sitting listening to that, it clearly shows Sturgeon isn’t not a superwoman; easily pulled apart for her failure as the Health Sec by way of factual evidence!

O’Hara, 51, has stood for the SNP in two previous General Elections in Springburn in 1987 and Glasgow Central in 1992. I never came across him in my travels, the 90 minute Nationalists only tended to surface just before elections when they suddenly became gung ho about Scotland and its people.

But O’Hara’s most damning piece of rubbish was when he targeted Mo Johnston, the former Rangers player.

He was quoted as an “ardent Celtic follower” in a Chicago Tribune piece on the hatred between the Old Firm.

O’Hara said:

“The (Mo Johnston) man’s a rat. I don’t think he can show his face in this town again.”

So, does earning a living using your talents make you a ‘rat’?

Clearly not in the case of Mo Johnston!

To be clear, although some consider football more important than life and death, this type of crap promotes sectarianism in Scotland, not that O’Hara is anyone to take notice of, but obviously his position in the SNP gives him a vehicle and an audience.

Dave Scott, director of anti-sectarian charity Nil By Mouth, said:

“The internet often brings out the worst in people when it comes to posting provocative and offensive material and people all too often don’t think before they type. Research published by the Scottish Government earlier this year highlighted that a majority of people found using terms like ‘hun’ and ‘fenian’ to be unacceptable and whether you are part of this majority or not it’s clear that continued use of these terms, particularly from public figures hardly diffuse any lingering sectarian tensions in our society.”

A Conservative spokesman said:

“It is entirely unacceptable from someone hoping to represent the public in Parliament.”

So far, I have listed 5 people who in my opinion aren’t fit to be elected to Westminster from the SNP, this in my view is probably just the tip of the iceberg, Nicola Sturgeon appears to have cobbled together the worst type of dross available; sheep will always be sheep.

Brendan O’Hara has as about as much political credibility as Nicola Sturgeon fake hair colour.

Presumably, when I next stand for public office, someone in a fit of fake Nationalist outrage will highlight me calling unpopular Nicola Sturgeon, a ‘rat’ and ask is that ‘acceptable behaviour’?

My reply will be, ‘go get her and I will call it to her face’, and of course highlight the rest of the SNP ‘rat ship’, after all might as well get everyone in the same night and not play favourites.

Nicola Sturgeon will be doing nothing because Nicola Sturgeon lacks class, integrity, and the ability to be a leader of men; she needs dross around her to feel ‘special’.

And she really is willing to scrap the bottom of the barrel to get it.

Yours sincerely

Another day another numptie that shouldn't be allowed near public office. The funny thing is the internet don't forget, so your sins will find you out and keep biting you. I'm sure he has said worse as well but it is not in the public domain. However lets hope it concentrates the minds of the voters where he is standing.

Take a listen to snp candidates. Take a listen to their activists. Take a listen to some of their elected members. Do Scottish voters really want to be governed by this crew?
Even the members I speak to are wondering how we ended up with every ned and his Granny in the Party.
Seriously, it's not Westminster that should be worried.

I warned a friend who supports the SNP more stories like this would come out. He agreed.

When it comes to standing for public office, you need to be transparent and open about your past.

If O'Hara had any integrity, he would have disclosed his internet comments, apologised and shown he has made an effort to combat sectarianism. Instead he only apologises when things come to light.

Another individual who does not deserve public office. There are other candidates who I am sure would be excellent choices for the SNP. However , they are probably not part of the clique.
