Poor feeble spin: SNP Candidate whines like a bitch because three political candidates attend a Scotland in Union hustings, communal crying session on the National after sulky James Dornan then says the SNP are getting a warm reception on the doorsteps, anyone had a terrific blowjob, genuine question, no reason not to answer… go on!
On Wednesday night, I floated into the Scotland in Union hustings in Glasgow, the event was held in Glasgow Caledonian University.
The event was open to anyone who wished to go; all you had to do to be a member of the audience was just to register.
So, what is a hustings?
A hustings is a political platform that candidates standing in an election make the case why you should vote for them or their party.
As events go, the hustings was pretty standard fare, no one really won, no one died and I managed to catch up to speak to some people I know regarding the election campaign.
I would like to make the point; the event was open to anyone.
Three candidates turned up to speak, Anas Sarwar of the Labour Party, Adam Tomkins, Scottish Conservatives, and Robert Brown, of the three only Adam Tomkins hasn’t been elected to political office.
The SNP and the Scottish Greens were repeatedly contacted to field candidates by Scotland in Union for the event, but neither responded or turned up.
To say that the Scotland in Union hustings was a Better Together alliance was and is absolutely wrong.
James Dornan, the SNP’s candidate for Glasgow Cathcart, said:
“Far from being apologetic about Labour campaigning shoulder-to-shoulder with the Tories, it seems Anas Sarwar is perfectly comfortable with it. Their involvement with the Tories in Better Together was a horror show for Labour – but they have clearly learned nothing, and the grim spectre of Project Fear has now sprung back to life”.
This begs the question, was the Save Govanhill hustings a Better Together alliance, since Nicola Sturgeon deliberately chose not to attend that event?
Plainly some people are a tad simple in their thinking.
And of course, we should remember that Nicola Sturgeon has climbed into bed with David Cameron, politically, to campaign in Scotland for Britain remaining part of the failed EU experiment.
Nicola Sturgeon is politically in bed with the Tories, maybe someone will do a pic with her peaking over the covers with David Cameron, to add a touch of humour, a symbolic dildo on the bed to represent the political establishment to …… well you get the picture!
“While the old Better Together alliance get together to reminisce about times gone by, the SNP are out on the doorsteps speaking to voters – and getting a very warm response as the only party willing to stand stronger for Scotland.”
Anyone giving blowjobs?
Last night, I was out on the campaign trail myself, I talked a woman in Drumoyne Road from being a non voter to having second thoughts; voting is important; it is the only to get your voice heard. She did tell in passing that a lot of people were planning not to vote, and that she disliked Nicola Sturgeon.
Sorry Nicola, I guess the ‘love’ of the people will need to be continually staged managed, best keep a few kids stashed on the campaign trail to pull out when you think the con of being loved looks like wearing painfully thin.
That’s everyday isn’t it?
Event host Alastair Cameron said:
“We are a non-party organisation and our plea to our supporters is to get out and vote for who they think is best. This was an excellent debate with three talented and articulate speakers who took time out from their busy schedule to take part and show their passion for keeping Scotland in the UK. As well as the constitution, we are interested in the debates about education and the NHS. We had some excellent discussions about how we would use the powers Holyrood has. We hope this will be a useful guide to our supporters who have yet to decide.”
Rather than whining like a pussy and screaming like a bitch in the night, perhaps James Dornan should have volunteered to step into the lion’s den instead of getting all teary eyed and relating his tale of woe to the Daily SNP talking shop which the National appears to have become.
As I understand, this is Scotland in Union only hustings during the election, it was well run, well organized, a few changes I would make for next time, I would use an external person to host the event, and open up the range of parties to include the minor parties as well.
In the interests of total fairness and transparency this change is needed, which is a sign of a healthy debate, assuming the Scotland in Union which to proceed with more of these events in future!
Finally: Anas Sarwar said:
“The SNP wake up everyday [sic] not just thinking about how to divide the UK. But how to divide Scots.”
Never a truer word said passing, no one won that event.
