Nationalist Front apologist to stand in Cowdenbeath by-election

An upcoming Scottish by-election, the secretive lock down of a twitter account and the potential of embarrassing revelations, will all be thrown into the mix when the Cowdenbeath electorate vote on January 23rd next year. AhDinnaeKen investigates:

A NATIONALIST Front apologist has been chosen to contest the Cowdenbeath by-election for the SNP.

Natalie McGarry, a high profile contributor to hate-preaching website, Wings Over Scotland, is a leading Wings apologist and Tweet deleter within the Yes campaign for Scottish independence.

The 32 year old is thought to have locked her Twitter account down in advance of the by-election news in order to minimise any political damage or potential embarrassment to the floundering campaign.

The by-election was called after the untimely death of the sitting Labour MSP.

McGarry – the only Nationalist who could be bothered putting their name into the hat – was selected by the SNP Cowdenbeath Constituency Association in order to stop her mother from setting Wings Over Scotland on them.

The Aberdeen University graduate was born and raised in Inverkeithing, the Fife town that time forgot.

A co-founder of the Women for Independence campaign, McGarry’s alleged feminist credentials have been tainted by her online support of notorious Nationalist Front misogynist and transphobe, Stuart Campbell.

Speaking after her selection, Ms McGarry said: “I am delighted to have had advanced notice of this selection.

“It means I could deny access to my twitter account and delete any potentially embarrassing tweets therein.

“My twitter history could potentially have been used against me and the party during the campaign.

“There is so much at stake in this by-election that I hope my anodyne mediocrity and breathtaking hypocrisy won’t shine through too much.

“That’s enough of a worry without my petty snide ad hominems and risible accusations coming to the fore.”

According to pundits, the Cowdenbeath constituency is an emminently winnable seat and the stakes are high for both of the main contenders – Labour and the SNP.

Judging by the trend of the last two Scottish elections, the SNP could win the day by appealing to Tory and Lib-Dem coalition voters – those who deserted the Con-Dems to vote SNP in the 2011 election – in a concerted effort to wrest the seat from Labour.

Unofficial Wings biographer, Longshanker, said: “On current trends, Ms McGarry has a real chance of taking this seat from Labour.

“Given the importance of the election for both independence propaganda campaigns, the Nationalists won’t want anything to aid their Labour/Better Together oppoents.

“Ms McGarry’s support for the Wings Over Scotland’s editor who refers to No voters as “anti-Scottish” amd “snivelling cowards”, is not the sort of individual the SNP will want the by-election to be associated with.

“He fulfils the Nationalist stereotype of an insular, petty minded, anti-English bigot.

“Ms McGarry needs to make her stance toward his website clear or it may come back and haunt her in the by-election campaign.”

Or maybe she's realised the potential for embarrassment due to her Twitter friends and ad hominems.

  1. Dear Longshanker

    You missed out that Natalie McGarry linked my blog to a Nationalist hate account called @georgemlaird which is under investigation by Police Scotland.

    This hate account is much more that Wings over Scotland could ever be, but it does show the true calibre of Natalie McGarry.

    It is an account that calls me a paedophile.

    Maybe Ms. McGarry can offer an explanation to the press why she did this?

    Recently I was speaking on BBC radio, Ms. Garry was also invited on, normally in politics you exchange ‘hellos’, but in her case, I just ignored her totally before, during and after the broadcast. As I said there is a question of trust in Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon, she became defensive and said there wasn’t, the next day Brian Taylor did a piece on the question of trust.

    George Laird right again.

    If this is the ‘best’ the SNP can do then they really are in trouble, they must know McGarry will not win.

    The SNP keep pushing women candidates forward to try and get the stigma of Bill Walker out of their brand and attract the women’s vote, that won’t happen.

    I recently stood for election, McGarry was on the gate I was canvassing at, I was ‘treated’ to listening to her utter drivel; her voice carries, and I thought she was totally unprofessional in her attitude and dress, she looked like a Mexican bandit on the way to cleat out a garage.

    Not MSP first past the post material or a thinker either.

    Yours sincerely

    • Thankyou George

      “… linked my blog to a Nationalist hate account called @georgemlaird which is under investigation by Police Scotland.”

      Got any links, screenshots etc?

      Not MSP first past the post material or a thinker either.

      I disagree with the first part of this sentence George. It’s because I agree with the second part that I disagree with the first.

      She stands a realistic chance of election given the past election trends. It’s an important propaganda result for both sides.

      Natalie has local knowledge. I’m sure her ordinary gal aboot toon couthiness will see her make a formidable challenge.

      The lockdown of her Twitter account demonstrates that she feels she has something to hide.

      Regards

  2. Dear Longshanker

    As you know I am limited to what I can say or reveal because there is an active criminal investigation under way.

    However, I can confirm that the SNP candidate Natalie McGarry who is standing in the Cowdenbeath by-election, has had her name passed onto Police Scotland.

    This is in regard to linking my blog to the Nationalist hate account @georgemlaird.

    Yours sincerely
