It seems that the village idiot, Ian Blackford, the SNP Westminster leader has given Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn until the end of the day to bring a motion of no confidence in Theresa May’s government. In politics, one thing you should never do it wait on others. The ‘threat’ is a ‘nonsense’ of the highest order, but it also shows what the work ethic of the Nationalists is. When I was in the SNP, the ‘leaders’ would ‘pass the parcel’ on do the work in the hope that others would take it up in their stead.
Of course, we should recognise that a motion of no confidence led by the SNP doesn’t have any kudos, no gravitas; all the SNP MPs can do is ride on the coattails of others, to appear to have strength and authority.
the SNP are very much an outcast party, they don’t have friends; they don’t
have allies, and are held rightly in contempt. Westminster
So, what happens if Jeremy Corbyn doesn’t do as the ‘replacement’ jolly fat man asks? Other minor opposition parties will do it themselves. And if they don’t have the Labour Party onboard, then they will lose any vote, and there is no guarantee even if Labour does climb onboard that they will win anyway.
SNP Westminster Ian Blackford is the ‘led’, the SNP leadership at Holyrood basically tell the ‘sheep’ what to do, what to think and how to vote and when. There is no gravitas in the SNP; they are so weak, that they need on this issue of Brexit to seek the shelter of having joint press conference with opposition parties.
The SNP want to have a vote of no confidence to pave the way for a People’s Vote, but what they absolutely don’t want is a general election. If the SNP go into a general election, they stand in theory to lose more MPs.
2015…… 56 MPs
2019, without any real narrative or substance, plenty SNP MPs would be joining the ranks of the unemployed, or in their case the unemployable.
The odds of holding certain seats aren’t something anyone in the SNP would want to risk their mortgage on.
The Labour Party position is that they will lodge a motion to topple Mrs May’s government when it is certain to pass the Commons. To translate, they will pop their head over the parapet if they think that a number of Conservatives will abstain. This is called hedging your bets, and at present even the strongest leave MPs in the Conservative ranks aren’t that daft.
The Conservative MPs will be subject to a three line whip.
On this issue, anyone who breaks this effectively can kiss their political career goodbye.
The SNP think that they can play the role of ‘puppet master’ with Nicola Sturgeon holding the strings, the sense of delusion in that is palpable.
Nicola Sturgeon cannot influence events at
, she isn’t even an MP. One thing
which I do hope happens is that Theresa May by act or default runs down the
clock and there is a hard Brexit. It would be in the Westminster national interest to seek safe
harbour of the WTO rules rather than align ourselves to the EU. The negotiations
between the EU and the UK
show that the EU isn’t interested in partnership for the common good; but
rather they seek self advantage to promote their agenda which I suspect is to
frighten other member states from leaving. UK
Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP have learned nothing from losing Scottish independence and losing Brexit. Sturgeon tweeted:
"Time is running out and the PM’s tactic is clearly to run down the clock. The opposition must not allow that to happen."
Finally; Nicola Sturgeon doesn’t grasp that time ran out on 23 June 2016, since then far from being effective, she has been pushed, nudged and drag out of the door. The situation is at present, fingers clutching the door frame like a kid not want to go to bed; she won’t be getting what she wants. If she thinks getting shot down in flames is another glorious failure, clearly she needs her head examined.
Having Ian Blackford lead the charge at
is just laughable, it is like
watching the ‘little man’ urging the ‘big boys’ onto a fight. Westminster
