As part of my continual theme that the Scottish National Party is a ‘rat ship’, I would like to re-focus minds on ‘King Rat’,
‘jolly fat man’ Alex Salmond. In the early hours of 19th September
2014, the majority of people in Scotland handed him his ass, all 2 million plus
left the ‘Baboon of Brigadoon’ with no choice but to fold his tent as leader of
He thought he was going to win the referendum.
Salmond left off office at a rate of knots and has been whining and complaining about how others caused his defeat at the ballot box ever since.
The blame for the failure of the Scottish independence bid rests squarely on his shoulders and that of unpopular Nicola Sturgeon.
As I said on BBC radio 5 live on ‘White Paper’ day, there is a question of trust surrounding Alex Salmond.
Having stepped down, he needed to find another ‘job’ as back bench MSP didn’t suit him or indeed Nicola Sturgeon. When the Cabinet was reshuffled like the deckchairs on the Titanic, one place card round the table didn’t appear, Alex Salmond.
election gave him another opportunity to try and resurrect his dying political career
which is over, his day in the Sun as passed. Even some of the Nationalists have
said this in not so many words.
‘Alex Salmond is the past’.
Salmond is contesting the
Westminster seat of Gordon, his chief
opposition to the seat is Christine Jardine. Christine Jardine is the Liberal
Democrat candidate who is standing to replace Sir Malcolm Bruce; she is also a
journalism lecturer at Robert Gordon University
During the Scottish independence referendum, the Nationalists and their ‘allies’ stooped so low as to tell lies to the public, this was a deliberate con trick to effectively robbed Scots of a fair process.
In the end, lying was a major part of the Nationalists downfall, but apparently, they still haven’t learned the lessons of history.
Alex Salmond has been accused of telling voters 'blatant untruths', the new revelation is revealed via a leaflet to voters in Gordon constituency, he appears to be taking credit for pensioner policies introduced before he took power at Holyrood.
The lies centre on saying that the SNP had “led the way” by providing free personal care and bus passes for pensioners. As I have blogged before, the SNP seem to think that they can re-write history as matter of fact and no one will notice.
Well, people do!
Salmond as part of his pitch said he was “immensely proud” of the SNP’s record on free personal care and bus passes when both policies were introduced by the Labour and Lib Dem Scottish Executive.
And we should remember that he stood down as an MSP in 2001 and before he won power in the 2007 Holyrood election, so he had no part whatsoever in decisions made. Rightly, Christine Jardine has attacked Salmond for trying to fool voters.
In the Gordon seat, things have turned rather nasty with the SNP having tried to smear and blacken Christine Jardine’s name by claiming that she lives in Glasgow and not the constituency. This development rather paints a different light that unpopular Nicola Sturgeon is a new broom, this also show the respect agenda for women is a farce to con women into voting SNP.
So, why isn’t Nicola Sturgeon doing something about this?
Well, and here we go again, it’s an old story, Nicola Sturgeon is a ‘rat’, in the same way that Alex Salmond is a ‘rat’.
As Christine Jardine says the SNP accusations were “desperate” and points out that because of her career, it means she lives in the North East, and used the analogy that many male oil workers have moved to the region to make a living away from their families.
The damning SNP leaflet read:
“I am immensely proud of the SNP's record in government when it comes to standing up for our pensioners. We have led the way with bus passes and free personal care.”
Actually, all the SNP did was continuing the previous policies of the Labour and Lib Dem as then Scottish Executive, and that was because they realised that it would be useful as a tool to garner votes.
Not rocket science.
Ms Jardine said:
“Experience has taught us that Alex Salmond sometimes has problems remembering the fine detail of the actualise, but, even by his standards, these are blatant untruths. It's typical of the SNP's attempts to rewrite history, but I'm confident that voters in Gordon will see past these false claims and remember that the Lib Dems have a genuine record of working with like-minded colleagues to deliver real improvements for pensioners and other vulnerable groups in our communities.”
As to the smear campaign, her response was:
“It seems pretty desperate to me. If they were confident they were going to win, why would they stoop to this?”
It is because as I always said, these people are rats, and recently I said to someone, the one of the best ways to let these people be shown up for what they really are is to let them speak.
Some time ago, an employee of Alex Salmond called Alex MacLeod was convicted of fraud as he used deception to win a seat as a highland councillor. He is possibly facing jail for failing to do community service.
I wonder how much about politics he learned from Alex Salmond, did Salmond teach him ethics?
