MacAesop’s Fables # 18 – The Boy and the Nettles

Our eighteenth Sunday outpouring of sanctimony and self-righteous morality to be taken as seriously as the belief that the SNP don’t want a second referendum question.

“Only aim to do your duty, and mankind will give you credit where you fail.” – Thomas Jefferson. The electorate might not quite be so forgiving though eh?

A BOY was stung by a Nettle. He ran home and told his Mother, saying, “Although it hurts me very much, I only touched it gently.”

“That was just why it stung you,” said his Mother. “The next time you touch a Nettle, grasp it boldly, and it will be soft as silk to your hand, and not in the least hurt you.”

Analysis: Independent Scotland, independence, Devo Max, Devo Plus, Devo Lite, Devo Minus, whatever the SNP want to call it, isn’t it time the Right Honourable Sun King Alex of Salmond took on board the moral of this fable:  “Whatever you do, do with all your might.” So come on Eck, one question only, the sooner the better.
