SNP Fake Popularity; Nicola Sturgeon's approval ratings totally collapses, as Scots see through the carefully stage managed construct to make Sturgeon likeable, she is the least popular leader in Holyrood, how long before SNP members start wearing, ‘I hate Nicola, I hate that horrible cow’ T shirts?

Dear All

First up, sorry for the gap in blogging, things have been a bit hectic of late, it wasn’t by choice; I was getting pulled in so many different directions that my time got used up, all in a good cause tho.

I hope you liked my cgi clip; the scene is from a movie called Nemesis which I added cgi effects to enhance it. It was something I did to give myself some R&R, and get back to studying.

Anyway……… back to work!

One thing which many people know is that eventually everyone comes around to the George Laird view, it just takes them a bit longer, some people say the journey is the important which can be true but also sometimes, getting the answer provided can be time saving.

Nicola Sturgeon is a fake, in my opinion, she is a horrible nasty individual, and despite the time, effort and money to make her look like a mother, make her look like she is caring, make her look like she is easy going and funny, it doesn’t work.

In the end, your true nature shines through because when you play act, you cannot always remain in character 24/7. You might have noticed that I like to use a certain picture of Nicola Sturgeon growling as she plants herself in a chair in Bute House, the look in the eyes, tells you everything you need to know about Nicola Sturgeon.

As I was former in the SNP, I came across her, and despite my best intention to give her the benefit of the doubt, I couldn’t bring myself to like her. My initial reaction was that she gave off a really bad vibe, something which I noticed in her 2011 campaign because I spent some time there.

For years, I said openly, unpopular Nicola Sturgeon, to which many people didn’t agree with, because the SNP machine did a make over which had a degree of success. The organised events of ‘everyone loves Nicola’ and the endless supply of kids pushed into her arms for the press to take a picture of, was just spin, hype and electioneering. When I went to a Pollok SNP socials and Nicola Sturgeon was there, she wouldn’t stay long, she did the chitchat with members, then did the informal speech and after that finished; she simply disappeared. This was the same format I witnessed repeatedly over the years.

The old saying that ‘time waits for no man’ has arrived for Nicola Sturgeon, because the false image has fallen apart, Sturgeon’s personal approval ratings have collapsed since last year. The artificial construct made for her to appear as a ‘loving kind person’ has been shown up for what it is hollow.

I have great pleasure in introducing the real Nicola Sturgeon, the least popular leader at Holyrood.

A new survey for STV found the First Minister’s ratings had fallen from +14 to -4 since September. The reality is that people are sick to death of Nicola Sturgeon and her nonsense, weak leadership, inept government and obsession with a second independence referendum.

Everything has a time and a place, 2014 was the wrong time for a referendum which I said would fail and I was proven to be correct. There might have been a chance in 2018 as I blogged on in the past but by going too early, lying, not doing the work, having buffoons as candidates put the spanner in the works.

2018, the real window back then as a date is now closed because of everything which transpired from 2012 onwards.

In ye olde days, Nicola Sturgeon was seen as a horrible wee bastard that no one liked but despite that she climbed the SNP ladder because of her ability to shout and scream, the press latched onto her and the SNP promoted her but as we now know in 2017, in the cold light of day, she has become a “divisive” figure on the doorstep. In Govanhill, the slum she couldn’t be bothered to fix as the MSP, many people hated her with a passion which is why she is ‘away’. When she was representing part of Govan, I met some women who hated her guts with the same passion displayed in Govanhill.  

The joke of the election is that Nicola Sturgeon is now seen as a liability to the Nationalist cause, but as we all know, there isn’t talent waiting behind her, the rot has set in, whether other parties can take advantage of this is their concern.

Sturgeon has peaked!

Just as Alex Salmond marched the SNP up the hill in 2014 referendum, then lost and had to march them back down again, Sturgeon has out of options, she isn’t delivering indyref 2, people are asked to back non entities who aren’t going to be good constituency MPs and there is no direction, everything Sturgeon touches ends in disaster.

A projection by the Electoral Calculus website says that the SNP are projected to hold 50 of the 56 seats in won in 2015 that might pan out, but it doesn’t in my opinion take into account enough the shift not just in public opinion but also the new energy that some people and parties have for places where they think they can do the business. In East Renfrewshire, the Conservatives are putting ‘everything and the kitchen sink’ in for a win.

The campaign in East Renfrewshire is run like a by-election, although on paper we have a 3 horse race, Labour trailing in third, the front runner is Paul Masterton for the Conservatives. Blair MacDougall is rated by the bookies as a 10/1 shot, the SNP in second, and Conservatives 4/6.

What do the bookies know?

The important thing in this election, the thing what is needed most is the introduction of more choice, hardly any independents standing which is a real shame; the snap election has effectively disadvantaged them completely. If I had the money, and more importantly the time, because to stand you need at least a good two years to get round the constituency, I won’t mind standing for Westminster.

Finally, the SNP will probably win the majority of seats according to the polling, but this doesn’t work to Scotland’s advantage, constitution politics are a road to nowhere, while the SNP hype up indyref 2 nothing gets done, we get bad representatives at Westminster and there is no constructive dialogue.

And we need constructive dialogue, something beyond Nicola Sturgeon’s mental grasp!

Yours sincerely

I'm sure your pic annoys the fuck out of her George :)

I know nobody that likes her apart from fractured friends which is all she and her party have to show for their time in power.

Dear Anon

"She was intensely disliked 25 years ago".

Just intensely?

I've long held Sturgeon in contempt. She is nothing but a liar and a hypocrite - from abolishing the Right to Buy, to claiming she hates the Tories, to holding another independence referendum.

She simply wants to stay in power at all costs, which is why she keeps pushing another independence referendum further and further back, while teasing her devoted followers that it's still on the table. She knows she would lose it and then she'd have to resign, following the precedent set by Salmond. She has no intention of moving out of Bute House anytime soon.

My brother is a big fan of Sturgeon, but he was pretty disgusted with her hypocritical fawning over Prince Philip when he announced his retirement. Like most SNP supporters, my brother is a die hard republican. He said of Sturgeon at the time, "She can bullsh*t without even trying." He then began to wonder what else she's been telling lies about.

Finally, her mask is slipping and people are beginning to wake up to her true nature as a liar and a hypocrite.

It would be nice to see a photo of Sturgeon NOT surrounded by winsome children gazing adoringly at her. I think even Gary Glitter had fewer pictures with kids!!!

You are a bitter man, and you can't get over being much less popular than Nicola. We'll see what happens in the GE. Certainly, a few SNP seats will be lost, partly due to people like you. Totally collapses? No chance. I don't expect o be published by a bubble artist like you, but the results will tell.

Dear East Neuker

“You are a bitter man”

Staright away you start with an attack on the Citizen press, I am a big blogger in Glasgow don’t you know!

“and you can't get over being much less popular than Nicola”.

You can’t compare like for like here.

“We'll see what happens in the GE”.

I guess we will won’t we.

“Certainly, a few SNP seats will be lost, partly due to people like you”.

Ypu mean voters not voting SNP, there are millions of us!

“Totally collapses? No chance. I don't expect o be published by a bubble artist like you, but the results will tell”.

Cluck cluck cluck cluck!

As an Englishman who wants Scotland to be independent I've always thought salmond was an arrogant sanctimonious prick while sturgeon is an incompetent z lister who used her hubby to rise to the top.
No way will independence come round with these fame whores in charge.

One of Thatchers more aspirational and virtually only socialist policy abolished by Wee Hairy-The fake nationalist. The right to buy gave working people on low wages the chance to get on the property ladder. There were already rules that severely restricted tenants from buying but she banned it completely. What a horrible mind she must have.
