It seems the ‘unity’ of the Scottish National Party has been rather laid bare as more information is now coming out of the estrangement between Alex Salmond and unpopular Nicola Sturgeon.
Nicola Sturgeon’s attempts to sideline him at the SNP conference are the sign of an insecure woman who understands only too well her unpopularity is becoming more recognisable.
Sturgeon thinks if she ‘hogs the limelight’ that somehow as if by a miracle she will be will become ‘Snow white’ instead of the haggard crone she has become.
The Govanhill protest march to her office is ample proof her ‘reign of hell’ has a limited time span.
Although Sturgeon allowed Salmond use the main hall of Glasgow’s SECC to conduct a question-and-answer session about his new book, he was shunted onto a small podium to the right of the hall.
Rather than being a ‘stateswoman’; which she is not, her complete lack of class was only to graphically on display here.
I said Sturgeon was ‘common’ in previous blog posts; she just reinforces my point, and yet again proves, George Laird right again.
History is appearing to be re-written in the SNP as Salmond’s lunchtime session was not mentioned in the conference agenda. Alex Salmond maybe yesterday’s man in every sense of the word, but the disrespect by Sturgeon shows what an ugly personality Sturgeon has, no sense of loyalty, no sense of common decency and no respect.
I don’t even like Salmond so I have no side to support on this issue.
When Alex Salmond took to the main stage because punters couldn’t hear him, thousands of delegates cheered the roof off. There are now two leaders of the SNP, and Sturgeon is the firmly the second choice and she knows it.
A bitter Nicola Sturgeon has also refused to confirm whether he would even be part of her negotiating team if a deal is available to be done with Labour over any power-sharing arrangement.
Nicola Sturgeon is repeatedly stating she would be leading any talks with the Labour Party, and as an aside said that she hoped her predecessor managed to win the Gordon seat.
I bet she does!
Personally I am hoping that Alex Salmond gets his ‘Michael Portillo’ moment in Gordon and gets stuffed by Christine Jardine, the Lib Dem.
Another sign that Alex Salmond is not wanted anymore is when Sturgeon failed to mention him during her keynote address to the conference.
It seems that Nicola doesn’t have generosity of spirit either but instead is just as mean spirited and nasty as ever.
After five days of trying to reassert her crumbling leadership after Salmond made a fool of himself, Sturgeon must know that she faces a challenger for her leadership when it all comes crashing down round her ears.
Everyone will be looking at Salmond when she makes a decision.
Yesterday on the blog someone posted how there is unease about Sturgeon’s women only short lists, apparently Nicola’s future policy of discrimination doesn’t sit well with certain members.
If you are a guy in the Scottish National Party, what are you doing following ‘Tampax Tommy’?
My nickname for Sturgeon as she campaigns on tampons, obviously on this issue, ‘blood will flow’!
Where is the self respect of the male members?
Equality in her version of the SNP means pro active discrimination of men.
In an interview Sturgeon told Sky News’s Murnaghan programme that Salmond was “very firmly on my team”, she doesn’t have a team, she runs a ‘rat ship’, her ‘team’ are all getting something out of it, bought and paid for, this appears to be the way that Nicola gets ‘allies’.
Alex Salmond is now very much the loose cannon, a bull in a
shop, snubbed, humiliated and cast adrift like an old woolly jumper that has
seen better days.
He effectively is getting wiped from the SNP’s history.
Time for a quote:
“If you are white working class and heterosexual, you are shit out of luck dealing with the Sturgeon Empire”!
Alex Salmond should have read my blog.
