MacAesops Fables #20 – The Firstminster and his two sweethearts

Our twentieth Sunday outpouring of sanctimony and self-righteous morality to be taken as seriously as the SNPs commitment to open and transparent government

There are two dilemmas that rattle the Unionist and Nationalist skull: How do you hang on to someone who won’t stay? And how do you get rid of someone who won’t go?

A MIDDLE-AGED FIRSTMINSTER, whose hair had begun to turn gray, courted two women at the same time.

One of them was a young Nationalist, and the other a well advanced in years Unionist.

The elder woman, ashamed to be courted by a man younger than herself, made a point, whenever her admirer visited her, to pull out some portion of his black hairs.

The younger, on the contrary, not wishing to become the wife of an old man, was equally zealous in removing every gray hair she could find.

Thus it came to pass that between them both he very soon found that he had not a hair left on his head.

Analysis: Just as we have no clarity on whether legal advice was taken or not over Europe, neither do we have clarity other than Firstminster hints at a second question on Devo Whatever. As the increasing clamour clearly demonstrates: “Those who seek to please everybody please nobody.
