SNP exposed by Electoral Commission for trying to fiddle Neverendum question. As they get sent homeward tae think again, AhDinnaKen considers what the Electoral Heidy Commission ruling means for the whole stultifyingly dull campaign.
DO YOU agree that the SNP Yes campaign got sent homeward tae think again?
The SNP’s abeyance to the Electoral Commission advice wasn’t so much a case of fighting and dieing for a wee bit rig and spend, it was more the Nationalists volte facing and daeing whit they were telt by the big boy professionals.
Supine and graceless, as is their want, the Nats quickly took an offensive line as displayed by the Kevin Bagapringles tweet adorning this page.
AhDinnaeKen takes its metaphorical hat off tae Kevin’s audacity.
According tae Bagapringles, the real news isn’t that the SNP had been publicly exposed for intending to ‘rig’ the Neverendum, it was that the UK government might have to concede there is an alternative, however unlikely, to a No vote.
And of course there is. A Yes result will currently get you odds of 5/2 at William Hill. Enough said – a No vote currently stands at 2/7 and Independence by 2020 returns a miserly 1/16.
Alastair Campbell and Tony Blair themselves would have been proud of Bagapringles spin on such a loser’s hand.
It certainly provided a soother for the frothing legion of Cybernats, exposed as drone lackeys to the vanity project cult of Salmondindependence.
As Bullingdon Dave paraphrased at PMQ: “We’re not doing your job for you. You made your bed. Lie in it.”
According to the recently released Social Attitudes Survey around 1 in 4 (23%) Scots believe in Independence.
According to health wonks, around 1 in 4 Scots can expect to suffer from mental health issues – predominantly depression.
Are the two related? AhDinnaeKen thinks we should be told.
