The Scottish National Party isn’t a party of fairness, equality and social justice; I have been saying this for some time, I have my own experiences to draw on which has helped shape my views.
Now, someone else has taken the opportunity to do public about how the SNP discriminate against people, Scotland’s only Chinese SNP councillor has quit the party.
Yen Hongmei Jin says she was subjected to a “racist attack” and “bullying”, this is extremely bad.
Ms. Jin who represents the Lochar ward on Dumfries and Galloway Council says she was forced to resign because the party’s top brass failed to protect her, this isn’t an isolated incident; this isn’t unusual.
One of the fantasies produced by the SNP is that they welcome people from all backgrounds and all religions, again this is the public face of the SNP, it is also a lie.
Yen Hongmei Jin says that in a period of six months the party’s HQ in Edinburgh which is run by Peter Murrell took no action to help her or indeed protect her.
When I sought help from Murrell, the husband of unpopular Nicola Sturgeon, the silence was deafening.
I was supplied evidence I was the victim of a vicious nasty smear campaign which was ignored by Government Minister Derek McKay, and Ian McCann Corporate Governance and Compliance Manager, this led to me to Murrell, and like the others he refused to act.
Is there racism in the SNP, I think many people would form a hard line view of Yes, and judging by what happened to Yen Hongmei Jin, it appears that cover ups are still alive and well since I was a past member from 2012.
The former SNP councillor plans to run as an independent candidate in next year’s Scottish parliamentary elections.
I think the people of Dumfries and Galloway should rally round and provide assistance to this young woman.
So, what was Yen Hongmei Jin’s ‘crime’ to provoke what she describes as a racist attack?
She was organising a Burns supper for members to meet and socialise, she didn’t expect to get an e-mail response sent to her included the lines:
“Bunch of arseholes – supposedly Scottish too”, “They can stick their club right up their rectum” and “Pity we have to suffer them at Palmy.”
Ms Jin said the incident had left her “isolated” and with no option but to resign and to further destroy the lie that women matter in the SNP used as an election tool by Nicola Sturgeon, Ms. Jin has reported the matter to the Police.
Ms Jin said also regarding the lack of assistance coming from SNP HQ.
“At least they could have contacted me to say that this is being dealt with. I just feel isolated. They are trying to shove it under the carpet. If the party knows about it and they don’t take any action, how can they prove that they are not discriminating? The way I’ve been treated is definitely racist. It’s disgusting. I have handed it in to police.”
“The SNP has let me down and consistently failed in its duty of care towards me.”
That is what you can expect from Nicola Sturgeon and her husband Peter Murrell, the guy who ignored me and treated me with utter contempt was Ian McCann, then listed as theCorporate Governance and Compliance Manager.
Could he be this is the same Corporate Governance and Compliance Manager who ignored Yen Hongmei Jin when she claimed she was allegedly subject to a racist attack?
One thing in the SNP is that their modus operandi doesn’t change, it is a party within a party, a nasty vicious cult operating in Scotland which is no longer relevant to the people or indeed serving the people.
Yen Hongmei Jin also said:
“It takes strength to stand up against evil and I’m doing it for myself and thousands of other people from other cultures who compose this country.”
Ms. Jin is exactly right, she is standing up to ‘evil’ alright, evil that goes right up to the top of the SNP leadership.
