The MacLeveson verdict: Salmond WILL be judged

According to the Inralavyson report, Tricky Dicky Salmond cannot be criticised – in terms of the debate. But, in terms of what he was prepared to do, he should take every bit of criticism coming his way.

“All the world is made of faith, and trust, and pixie dust.”  ― J.M. Barrie. Welcome to the new Nationalist manifesto.

MEDIA PIMP Rupert Murdoch’s favourite Caledonian ‘trick’ Tricky Dicky Salmond has been judged as a two faced traitorous empty coat by the people of this Sceptred Isle.

In return for favourable advertising space in a tawdry newspaper, Tricky Dicky was prepared to sell oot the people of England, Wales, Ireland and even his allegedly beloved Scotland, to the corrosive monopolistic forces of MacFoxy Murdochism.

But, in his favour, he did not actually do so because he was considered too “inconsequential” by people who half-know what they are doing on a national and international scale.

So, for what he did not do, he cannot be criticised.

For what he was prepared to do, he should be condemned to the pit of ignominy reserved for the likes of Lord Hee Hee Haw Haw, Oswald Muesli and Tony Bliar.

Tricky Dicky Salmond was prepared to sacrifice media plurality, democratic diversity, free speech and Moan McVulpine’s tits for the sake of a wee mention in the Scum.

As Niccolo Machiavelli said: “Politics have no relation to morals.”

He also added the little known footnote: “And Salmond bears no relation to a moralistic politician.”

That Scotland’s Firstminster was prepared to prostitute his position behind the smokescreen of “Scottish jobs and investment” demonstrates that there is no low to which he will not stoop in order to gain a sniff of power.

As Lord Inralavyson’s brother Lord Leveson said: “Such arguments were irrelevant to the decision which the Secretary of State had to make and could not lawfully be taken into account.

“Any decision influenced by them would have been impugned if the subject of judicial review.” (section 3.74 Leveson)

So, mibbes it’s worth revisiting the epithet that Tricky Dicky Salmond is a “formidable politician”.

“We do things differently here” has long lost its resonance with any sane person except for those lost souls addicted to Nationalist MacBarnum statements and 14th/18th century tales of anglophobic revenge.

Come the Neverendum it’s worth remembering the sage and wise words of Emma Goldman: “If voting changed anything, they’d make it illegal.”

It’s also worth reflecting that the Firstminster said: “I have no responsibility for broadcasting policy, I have no responsibility for plurality in the press…”

And, therefore, he behaved completely irresponsibly in terms of the greater dangers and repercussions of such a deal being concluded.

Now, he says: “the Scottish Parliament has an inescapable responsibility to consider how Leveson should be implemented north of the border.”

AhDinnaeKen considers this cynically duplicitous to a point way beyond sinister, hence the less than humorous tone of this piece.

Saor Alba fae Tricky Dicky Salmond.

    Well written and WELL SAID! I cannot believe that more isn’t being made of this. I cannot understand why he isn’t being hammered by those whose job it is to hold him to account. Maybe they want him to get more and more reckless as he continues to believe in his own ‘untouchability’ and ‘immortality’ as a politician? He’s not the messiah, he’s a chancer of the first degree who takes us all for fools, so yep, maybe that’s it… let him drown in his own self-importance!
    My take is that he has behaved very badly by FULLY INTENDING to entice UK Gov Ministers to breach their ministerial code and to behave unlawfully. In doing this I believe he has brought the office of First Minister into disrepute but what do I know? I’m just a daftquine fae the sticks!
    Grateful thanks for the opportunity to have a bloody good rant and also for all the laughs at the expense of this bunch!

  2. Indeed!

    I suspect the latter contradiction in his stance is due merely for the need to be seen to be doing different to what Cameron’s doing. If Cameron had said they’d implement Leveson in full Salmond would have run a mile from it.

    Reminds me of a year ago when Cameron was left isolated at the EU summit because he held out against more integration, ergo Salmond was touring the TV studios saying he wanted to be at the “heart of Europe”.

    Of course, I don’t think the SNP want more EU integration either, but let’s not let the inconvenient facts get in the way of a good soundbite that’s the opposite of what Cameron is saying, and irrespective of the substantive merits of the case in question.

  3. Thankyou Stuart

    I do believe you could be bang on the mark as you so often prove to be.

    It’s certainly given me something to look out for.

    Like many of the Nationalist brethern I have become singularly myopic in my outlook on politics.

    I don’t pay a great deal of attention to Cameron because I can’t see beyond him as anything other than a dead man walking.

    Food for thought indeed

    Regards.

  4. Thanks, but much as I’d like to lay claim to some sort of devastating insight on the subject, in reality it’s probably just another of Alex’s attempts to position himself as doing things – anything – differently from what’s done down south, and in particular when it’s the Tories doing it.

    Except, of course, when doing as the rest of the UK does – keeping sterling for example – looks like it could be a vote winner.

    Or perhaps he considers a MacLeveson a way of appearing to stand up to Murdoch et al, but not doing enough to alieanate News Int.

    So who knows, but the thing is that nothing’s ever straightforward, and whatever the publicly stated motives for anything, the real justification for a particular course of action is likely to be something entirely different.

    So nothing none of us didn’t know already then :0)
