HAS anyone noticed the SNP in Scotland spend a lot more time not answering relevant questions than they do asking them in the Big Bloodyrude Cooncil.
When was the last time you heard the Right Honourable Sun King Alex of Salmond give a reply to an inconvenient question?
When did you EVER hear him leave himself accountable to Bloodyrude when faced with uncomfortable truths?
If the Scottish National Party really spoke for the ordinary people of our country, they would realise that explicit acts of contempt against the body politic don’t go down well with the voting public.
And aye, of course, everybody knows Scotland’s been systematically robbed of its fair share of oil revenues since it’s discovery. But bleating on about it at every turn just sounds bitter.
So, while the SNP claim the great victory of Whisky exports up, why don’t they tell how little in actual tax revenue these exports actually raise?
Isn’t it time they took Diageo head on and demanded that they pay their proper share of corporation tax rather then spiriting it away through Dutch holding companies, leaving the exchequer with the ‘angels share’?
Naw, they widnae dae that.
Cos then the Sun King’s populist rank amateurism when dealing with corporate types would once again be embarrassingly exposed. Tcha!
You won’t hear the SNP shout about that systemic injustice.
Instead they kid on that the Just Say Yes campaign is inclusive for all of the disaffected in the Independence camp. As you’d expect from centrist control freaks though, the message is ‘my way or the highway’.
Their latest wheeze is straight oot o’ the Orwellian school of newspeak – 25,000 new apprenticeships.
Naebudy’s sayin that this isnae a guid thing. And we wish the SNP well on making it work. Moanie’s problem wi’ this is that it was trumpeted by the SNP as if these new apprenticeships were effectively new joabs created for the unemployed,
Turns oot nearly hauf o’ them wur fir young folk already workin – hardly a solution to mass youth unemployment.
Did you see Patacake Harvie on the BBC’s Big Debate panel, joining forces with the audience in demanding answers regarding currency, Nato and the Monarchy?
Auld Nick Sturgeon, the SNP Deputy leader, who was ready for punchin the BBC’s Gary Robberson oot fir asking questions, wis nearly ready fir punchin oot Scots Tory leader Ruth Gotyason fir exposin her rank amateurism.
Patacake and Auld Nick made a great team for the Just Say Yes (Please) campaign. Wan looked like he knew whit he wiz daein and the ither wis Auld Nick Sturgeon.
So efter the much publicised faw oot during the weekend here’s Moanie’s idea fir a new campaign slogan.
Rather than calling the campaign Just Say Yes (Please), they should call the campaign Just Say Yes (An Dae whit yer telt).
