MacAesops Fables #23 – The Wolf and the Goats

Our twenty-third Sunday outpouring of sanctimony and self-righteous morality to be taken as seriously as the SNPs commitment to nuclear disarmament

“The senses deceive from time to time, and it is prudent never to trust wholly those who have deceived us even once.” – Rene Descartes

A WOLF saw some Goats feeding at the summit of a steep precipice, where he had no chance of reaching them.

He called to them and earnestly begged them to come lower down, lest they should fall by some mishap, and he added that the meadows lay where he was standing, and that the herbage was most tender.

They replied: “No my friend, it is not for the pasture that you invite me, but for yourself, who are in want of food.”

Analysis: As subtle as Sun King Alex’s silence on Chris Hoy’s victory; if the wolf is the SNP leader and the goats are the electorate then the food is the ‘power’ of independence. The dilemma for the undecided goat is: “You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment if you don’t trust enough.” Can Sun King Alex be trusted?
