MacAesops Fables #3 – The Unicorn, Hunter, and Lion

Our third Sunday outpouring of sanctimony and self-righteousness to be taken with 5ml of Scorn and scepticism.

A QUARREL had arisen between the Unicorn and the Lion, so the Unicorn came to a Hunter to ask his help to take revenge on the Lion.  The Hunter agreed, but said: “If you desire to conquer the Lion, you must permit me to place this piece of iron between your jaws, so that I may guide you with these reins, and allow this saddle to be placed upon your back so that I may keep steady upon you as we follow after the enemy.”

The Unicorn agreed to the conditions, and the Hunter soon saddled and bridled him.  Then with the aid of the Hunter the Unicorn soon overcame the Lion, and said to the Hunter: “Now, get off, and remove those things from my mouth and back.”

“Not so fast, friend,” said the Hunter. I have now got you under bit and spur, and prefer to keep you as you are at present.”

Analysis: Strange situations make for strange bedfellows. But the moral is quite clear for everyone to see: if you allow men to use you for your own purposes, they will use you for theirs. So what any reasoning Scotsman, including SNP supporters, should be asking themselves is – just what saddle and bridle has The Sun King, Alex of Salmond, opted for in his caramel wafer relationship with Goebbels Murdoch?
