As the reverberations of the impact of the Inralavyson report echo round the media, political and social networking sphere, AhDinnaeKen would like to take this opportunity to apologise unreservedly to the Firstminster.
By Humbil Pye
THERE COMES a time when an unfunny blog based on fundamental negativity and dishonesty has to apologise to the great and the good – especially when events leave them vindicated.
As has become increasingly clear, and reinforced by the words of the Inralavyson report, AhDinnaeKen has been completely and utterly wrong about the reputation and integrity of Scotland’s Firstminster.
Lord Inralavyson said that there was “no evidence that Firstminster Salmond has ever told the truth” and that “he cannot be criticised for never having told the truth“.
He is a mere politician after all. We accept that he is not divine and that he scratches his backside and picks his nose just like everyone else.
AhDinnaeKen accepts Lord Inralavyson’s finding and would therefore like to take this opportunity to unreservedly apologise to the Firstminster.
We apologise unreservedly for ever having believed a word uttered by Wee Eck since the beginning of his career, ever.
We apologise unreservedly for believing that the formation of the 79 Group was anything to do with political conviction and integrity, and that it was indeed the start of a power grab within the People’s Front of the Scottish National Party.
We apologise unreservedly for believing that the Firstminster was sincere when he claimed that the NATO bombing of Serbia was an “unpardonable folly” and we apologise unreservedly for ever having believed that he is committed to the removal of nuclear weapons.
We apologise unreservedly for believing that Scotland could be free from monarchical deference and we apologise for believing that this would stop the abuse of power through royal prerogative, official secrecy and privilege.
We apologise unreservedly for believing that the Firstminster had the workers of Johnnie Walker’s plant’s best interests at heart and we apologise for giving him the benefit of the doubt over his castigation of the Diageo board.
We apologise unreservedly for ever believing that “we do things differently here” and we apologise for believing that Scotland could be part of an arc of prosperity.
We apologise unreservedly for doubting that he indulged in barefaced lies to parliament and we apologise for ever believing that he provided “as exact an answer as anyone has ever given to Parliament“.
We apologise unreservedly for accepting that the tippexing of the official parliamentary record was an honest mistake and we apologise for ever having given the Firstminster the benefit of the doubt over anything.
AhDinnaeKen is pleased to set the record straight and we wish the Firstminster well with his unwavering adherence to all things dishonest and underhanded.
Firstminster Salmond is 89.
