By Forfox Sake

KIDDY ON SNP Westminster leader, Angus Robertson, yesterday defended himself against charges of moral inferiority in the face of the proposed repeal of the fox hunting ban in England.

He surprised animal rights activists by declaring “I know a lot of English foxes and they deserve to be hunted to exhaustion and torn apart by a pack of baying hounds. But that’s enough about Sally Bercow and her husband’s enemies in the media.”

The dilemma for the SNP leader in Salmond’s shadow is simple – do the SNP sell oot their principles and vote on English legislation or do they sell oot the cute furry animals in order to remain morally superior in their righteous voting stance.

Angus Robertson was clear on whose side the blame lay:

“This is all the basturt Tories fault,” he cried, “They’ve done this deliberately to screw us over. No matter what we do, a large swathe of Scottish and English voters are going to be foxing raging at us. I think this is a job for my Named Person.”

One possible way out for the Nationalists lies in a previous statement by Saint Nicola of Sturgeon who said that the SNP may vote on English legislation, such as health, if it affects Scotland .

“There’s no doubt that this vote will affect the health of our credibility in the eyes of Scottish and English voters” said Sturgeon.

“No matter how we do or don’t vote it’s obvious we will thereafter be hunted down and torn to pieces.”

Labour’s Holyrood environment spokeswoman, Sarah Boyack, called for the Nationalists to end the ban on voting for English laws as such a stance is “a brutal and unacceptable practice when you have 56 SNP MPs in an ‘English’ parliament.

“Scotland’s moral voice as part of the UK doesn’t end at Berwick-Upon-Tweed and the SNP must make clear that their previous voting principles were just a sham in order to appear morally superior.”

Desperately searching for anything which can make the issue of 'Scottish' interest. Saint Nicola.

    I think the English Tories also are in favour of hunting a certain foxy MSP.

    That ‘certain foxy MSP’ would be wise not to venture south of the border into Westminster, however as rumour has it, she has been replaced by a chameleon that changes it’s political colours. (Allegedly)

    However it’ll be interesting to see how the SNP play this one, as it’s not going to the first time the SNP are put in this position, and I’ve no doubt the Tories will work to exploit it.

    For unlike Holyrood, at WM the SNP are facing a party more ruthless than they are, and one which cannot be cowed into silence, or have it’s supporters intimidated.

    So the chase is on, I suspect the 56, will be run to earth in short order.

    Of course they’ll vote it down. If that causes resentment in England, all the better for them!
