Have you ever heard of the Nolan Principles?
They are the bench mark for setting standards in public life for Politicians. One of the principles that people entering public life are supposed to have is leadership. Regular readers know that for some considerable time that I have commented on the fact that the Scottish National Party is a ‘rat ship’.
Some people in the cybernat community including the current poster boy of Nationalist abuse Piers Doughty-Brown have disliked me for ‘writing him up’ on the blog for his despicable antics regarding Margaret Curran.
He was wrong.
Piers Doughty-Brown is just a symptom of the disease that infects Nationalism in
Although credit where credit is due, it appears for the moment that rather than
continuing his ‘crusade’ against Margaret Curran when she was doing doorstep
canvassing, he moved onto public events involving Jim Murphy.
Nothing wrong in heckling at a public event, if you pop your head over the parapet, you are effectively saying ‘come ahead’. That being said, you should use judgment at all times, people have the right to run their events to get out their message, bottom line is that everyone should have a free and fair election.
If heckling is your thing, and it can be good fun, then election night in the counting hall as the result is announced is an excellent place to ‘rip the utter pish’ out of the opposition. Hustings are another good place for those interested in being vocal, but the ‘chair’ must be respected, so if they tell you sit your ass down, then you sit your ass down.
The Scottish National Party for years have claimed that the cybernats are nothing to do with them, the reality is however very different.
If you do a bit of digging, which I had to do, you can find out that these people doing the abuse are connected to the SNP leadership despite trying to be anonymous.
As people know, I have no time for unpopular Nicola Sturgeon, she is common, lacks class, has a massive chip on her shoulder, and isn’t a leader of men.
Leadership is a serious responsibility, if you have someone who is ill prepared, lacks decency or doesn’t care, it is a recipe for disaster. The person at the top ‘sets the standard’, people take their lead from them, if that person is a piece of shit, then the rest below will become embolden to act as if they had some kind of green light.
Nicola Sturgeon isn’t a leader that is fairly obvious, leadership isn’t about just accepting the ‘glory’, which seems to be the hallmark of Ms Sturgeon’s leadership, she appears to being in ‘love’ with being liked, a very shallow and needy woman, leadership is about accepting the other baggage that goes with it.
Sturgeon has refused to sack an SNP election candidate called Neil Hay after he was exposed for posting online messages which branded No voters “traitors.” On 22 October 2012 in a tweet he likened supporters of
Scotland staying in the UK to
“Quislings”. Quisling was a Second World War 2 term used as an insult from the
name of the Nazi collaborator who headed the puppet Norwegian government.
Neil Hay was posting under the anonymous name Paco McSheepie.
What does it say that Neil Hay was posting under an anonymous name, it show that he is at heart a coward like many people in the Scottish National Party. A cowardly piece of shit that patently doesn’t the courage of his own convictions just about sums him up. Another of his gems was the mocking of elderly voters for “barely knowing their own name”. After the indy defeat, some of the Nationalists blamed the elderly for voting no.
In a statement Hay said:
“The words in these old tweets were poorly chosen, and I apologise for any offence caused. They are not in keeping with the way I would express myself now.”
Oh, isn’t there an election on?
At present the current Nationalist line is that this is an ‘old account’, the bad news for Neil Hay is that Edinburgh Evening News after some digging discovered the account was used earlier this month, and was only deleted after the paper approached the SNP about it.
So, what should have Nicola Sturgeon have done?
Firstly, she should have suspended him, after reviewing the evidence, and that means reading Hay’s entire tweets from when he became an approved SNP candidate.
If any of the tweets were written during this period, she should have removed him as an SNP candidate, leaving him if he so wished to continue his campaign alone.
Sturgeon should have then banned any current SNP member from taking part in his campaign, and if he was elected, she should state that for the entire life of the next Westminster Parliament, he would be an independent.
So, what did Nicola Sturgeon do?
Well, she did the ‘cheap talk’ of apologising in Parliament which is really meaningless; then she decided to play the blame game after the matter was raised by Labour MSP Kezia Dugdale.
“I would invite Kezia Dugdale before she comes to me lecturing me on what she expects me to do about SNP members - can I politely suggest that she puts her own house in order first.”
Labour Deputy Leader Kezia Dugdale said this wasn’t enough; however she should accept that this is all she is getting.
Nicola Sturgeon has in my mind absolutely no integrity, and speaking of people getting their ‘house in order’, perhaps she should start with her own home in Baillieston, Glasgow.
A good place to clean house is to start to have a rather large word with husband Peter Murrell. After that rather frank discussion with hubby, she should next move onto the people in her Glasgow Southside clique, namely the odious Natalie McGarry who is standing in Glasgow East. She is another person who should have been removed as an SNP Candidate but wasn’t, it seems that if you are a ‘good pal’ of Sturgeon you can’t be removed.
The victims of Nationalist abuse are piling up, in one sense; it gives the Court system a run of business which they possibly didn’t bank on. Victims include journalists and participants in TV debates; women seem to be a special target of the abuse from the Nationalist camp.
Neil Hay is the SNP’s Edinburgh South candidate, if there is any justice left in
the people of Edinburgh South should send the Labour Candidate Ian Murray to Westminster.
Although, the focus is on Neil Hay, the real focus should be on Nicola Sturgeon, why is she so lacking in the fundamental requirements of leadership, she surrounds herself with sycophants who are as equally as poisonous as Neil Hay, her party is effectively a cult top heavy with idiots.
Eventually people in
Scotland will come to the George
Laird view as has happened many times before; sadly it may transpire that some
of the worst type of Nationalist pond life might slip through the net.
I supported tactical voting very early on; I did so because there is something incredibly rotten at the core of Scottish society, it is the Scottish National Party.
The SNP is a ‘rat ship’.
