On the 14th April, I wrote a post about the intimidation of Margaret Curran in Glasgow East by the Scottish National Party. Margaret Curran is facing off against the rather nasty and odious Natalie McGarry.
McGarry came out with which some people called sinister, that people like Margaret Curran were facing ‘community justice’. In this case ‘community justice’ dispensed to Margaret Curran was intimidation and denial of the right to a free and fair election.
Since that post has written about circa 2276 people have read what happened to Margaret and the video of the event is available online to see. One of the people involved in dishing out ‘community justice’ was someone called Piers Doughty-Brown. Anyway, Piers appeared to not like my post or the subsequent open letters to him regarding his conduct. In fact, he said on the blog that he would conduct himself with the law as he has always done.
I don’t know where he learned political campaigning but his antics are unacceptable, I told him so in print which centred on the issue of human rights. In his video, he claimed that he had a degree in law, to my surprise; he seemed rather reluctant to answer straight forward human rights questions. As people know, I have an interest in law, and it was fairly obvious that Piers was heading into troubled waters.
During this campaign and indeed during the Scottish independence referendum, the leaders of the Scottish National Party and members of the cult have always stated that no one knew who the cybernats actually were. We recently found out, some of them are SNP Candidates standing in the Westminster 2015 election.
Unpopular Nicola Sturgeon’s party members have been running a terror campaign in
although Sturgeon has condemned the actions of people like Neil Hay, she
effectively gave the ‘green light’ for her members to continue abuse by
refusing to act and sack Hay. Nicola Sturgeon made it ‘open season’ for SNP
supporters and candidates to abuse people.
Nicola Sturgeon claimed that terror tactics used against Jim Murphy, comedian Eddie Izzard and primary school kids on Monday had nothing to do with her party. Less than 24 hours later, two people at the St Enoch’s mini riot, Piers Doughty Brown, and James Scott were suspended by the SNP. My view is that Nicola Sturgeon’s word is worth the paper it is written on.
It seems the image of Nicola Sturgeon being a ‘caring women’; which I maintain is a con trick to get the female vote, has rather been put to bed for what it is, a shabby and tawdry deception on her part. Yes, it is true that the SNP has suspended Piers Doughty Brown and James Scott, they are the two most notable who stood out, but there was other SNP members in the video of what happened in St Enoch; these people should also be suspended.
Primary school children attended the Labour event in
Glasgow, and they were
put in harm’s way, and Nicola Sturgeon is to blame. American President Harry S
Truman famously said ‘the buck stops here’, in the SNP there is no such thing
as personal integrity in the current leadership by Nicola Sturgeon.
Margaret Curran, Labour’s candidate in Glasgow East said:
"Yesterday Nicola Sturgeon said the appalling scenes on the streets of
were nothing to do with the SNP, yet today she has suspended the SNP member who
led the disruption. What happened yesterday was the ugly face of nationalism. As
someone who has been followed on the streets of Glasgow by Mr Doughty Brown and who has
raised concerns about his behaviour for months, I am happy to assist Nicola
Sturgeon with her investigation."
Another lie which the SNP is pushing at present is that they said it would always act on such matters regarding abuse. As a former member of the party who suffered abuse, I know that statement is an utter lie. In the Scottish National Party led by Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon, SNP members who had legitimate complaints saw them being ignored and covered up by Nicola Sturgeon’s own husband Peter Murrell.
The Glasgow SNP ‘hate’ campaign although getting a lot of attention as it is in Sturgeon’s own backyard doesn’t paint the full story across the country, in Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey seat, the son of a Conservative Party candidate has been assaulted.
He was headbutted in the face.
His ‘crime’ apparently was staffing a Conservative campaign stall trying to engage with voters.
The son of
what happened to him; luckily a man has been arrested over the incident and
will appear in Edward
Mountain Inverness Sheriff
And if it turns out the accused is an SNP supporter, one wonders if Nicola Sturgeon has met this individual because Nicola and Alex Salmond appear to be photographed with many of the people engaging in hate crime.
I am not surprised that Piers Doughty-Brown has been suspended although I am sure that some people may wonder why it took Nicola Sturgeon weeks to act. He crossed a line with Margaret Curran, but what is more important was the total disregard for the fact that he, Sean Clerkin and James Scott had placed the personal safety of children in danger at the Labour event in
And didn’t care, one wonders how that equation came out at the SNP HQ, kill the story before it settled in the minds of female voters, but women should remember what happened to the little girl who was left in a distressed state as Clerkin and Co engaged in violent public disorder under the guise of protest.
Thursday 7th May, don’t hesitate to vote tactically to shut the SNP out of
The SNP should adopt a system of certification for activists, anyone who fails should be forbidden to be part of an activist team. As far back as July 2010, while an SNP member, I wrote a report that one of the things that needed to be established was a learning culture.
“24/ Establish a learning culture which offers options to suit people’s abilities”.
It is now May 2015 and the SNP still haven’t grasped the scale of their problems.
Finally, given the intimidation that Margaret Curran received at hands of the Scottish National Party, the people of Glasgow East should have no truck with allowing the odious Natalie McGarry to be their representative at Westminster.
Glasgow East vote Labour.
