Moan McVulpine: SNP abandonment of core principles sends a clear message

MOAN says the Scottish Nationalist Party are so willing to abandon core principles in order to point score that nobody knows what they actually stand for – other than the obvious.

Testing

By Moan McVulpinehip hip, hypocrisy

SO, THE Nationalists have sold out their principles… again. By preparing to vote on the English only foxhunting bill at Westminster recently, they demonstrated that no one can trust a word they say.

Gesture politics over principle any day of the week. How cheap? How tawdry?

There are only so many principles you can ditch before you are left without a moral centre or a credible trustworthiness.

That sums up the Nationalists right now. They are prissy pathetic moralisers who don’t even stand up to the minimum of moral scrutiny themselves.

This latest about turn follows many others. Take their proposed privatisation of CalMac ferries. True to form, and yet another admission of their lack of principle, the Nationalists put the blame on Europe for having to tender the service.

Aye, right!

‘Independence within Europe’ doesn’t look so independent when you scrutinise the reasoning, or lack of reasoning, behind that pathetic excuse.

If the Nationalists really believed in “Stronger for Scotland” they would have sought out credible alternatives to leaving the ferry services as potential prey to a ‘questionable’ private operator like Serco.

Even the decomposing Labour party, when they were in power, inserted so many caveats, conditions and guarantees that only one operator tendered for the contract – guaranteeing services, jobs and working conditions. Unlike now.

As detractors, opponents and enemies of Nationalism are usually keen to point out, Nationalism only really works when there is a common enemy to vilify, ostracise and demonise.

For the Nationalists, somewhat bizarrely, that enemy is still the Labour Party: a mostly dead powerless party in Scotland and a dieing, powerless party in England.

Yet, as embarrassingly demonstrated by the Daily Record’s ginger whinger, Joan McAlpine, it’s still the Labour party the SNP whine and moan and ceaselessly whine about.

It’s the logical fallacy of ‘damning the alternatives’. So long as you’re focussing on how bad the other parties are – in the Nationalists case the Labour party – then nobody’s going to look too closely at how bad you are.

It’s been a winning fallacy and strategy for the Nationalists for the past eight years, but how long can they keep it going?

No doubt, it’s going to last well into the next SNP majority parliament after the Big Parish Cooncil elections next May.

Eventually, however, the sovereign will of the people of Scotland will wake up to the reality behind the Nationalists gesture politics.

Like Mhairi Black MP’s lie – cited by her as a fully researched “fact” in her parliamentary maiden speech – that William Wallace was born in her constituency in Elderslie, the assertion that the SNP have provided a ‘competent’ administration in Scotland is also a lie.

No one could possibly believe that a significant drop in literacy rates, for example, under the SNP’s watch is competent, yet the Nationalists continue to get away with it.

They’ve sold out our kids – in more ways than one – and still continue to claim the moral high ground. You can only do that so many times before the team, and perhaps more importantly its supporters, gives up and goes home.

SNP ditch principles for foxes sake

ANOTHER PAPER cut on the road to the death of a thousand cuts. SNP decision to vote on the England and Wales foxhunting ban proves an old adage about politicians and lips moving. AhDinnaeKen reports:

"With regard to the problem of the Sudeten Parliamentary Sitz, my patience is now at an end!" said Gruppenführer Angus Robertson yesterday.

“The SNP have one overriding principle by which we all stand,” said GruppenFuhrer Robertson,  “We have no foxing principles!”

By Ewe TurnCompromised principles correspondent

IN AN unprincipled show of principle, the SNP will vote against attempts to relax the ban on fox hunting in England and Wales.

Angus Robertson, the SNP’s Westminster Gruppenführer, said the party wanted to send a message to the Tories about how principled the SNP’s unprincipled stance on principle was.

“We want to show the Tories that our principles are every bit as unprincipled as theirs,” he said.

“Therefore, it is right and proper that we assert that Scottish SNP MPs have the same rights as the Tories to turn our backs on and ignore promises made before the election. That is our vow and it will be as trustable and principled as that other ‘vow’ we never stop whining and bleating about.”

Holyrood Gruppenführer, Nicola Sturgeon, also waded into the debate to defend her party’s indefensible stance:

“The English want us to be this unprincipled,” she asserted without evidence.

“The real reason we’re compromising our alleged principles is less to do with foxhunting and more to do with our lack of principle.

David Cameron’s government has shown very little respect to the mandate that Scottish MPs have.

“We’re going to show even less respect to that mandate by sullying our ‘unsullied principle’ by voting for something we said we wouldn’t.

“That will send a clear and unprincipled message of principle to the Tories that, like them, you just can’t trust the SNP on anything we say you can trust us on.

“Trust me, this is one principle you can trust the SNP with – until, that is, we change our minds and decide you can’t.”

Moan McVulpine: “Vermin” to be dealt with appropriately in Nationalist Scotland

MOAN shares Willie Rennie’s disgust that ID cards by the back door shows the Nationalist’s true contempt for democracy.

One Party State: That's the way to do it. said Joan, yesterday.

ID Cards and super database will keep the “vermin” in check say the Nationalists.

By Moan McVulpineKeeping her eye on the enemies of the Scottish state

ENGLISH VOTES for English laws sounds perfectly reasonable on the surface – the SNP have been playing gesture politics around it for years.

But there’s the rub. Now that SNP votes could actually make a difference at Westminster, they want to interfere in English affairs where previously they abstained.

Like the South African imported English roses pretending to be Scottish Little White Roses, it’s all a gesture politics sham geared toward vilifying the English – or Westminster as the code word is now known.

Meanwhile, while the Tories show the SNP the best way to break up the Union with minimal effort, the embedded Nationalists at Holyrood are preparing the ground for ‘administrative efficiency’ in Scotland.

Hiding under the cover of Tory political atrocities at Westminster, the Nationalist government are preparing the ground for ID cards by stealth at home.

Highlighted by Lib-Dem leader Willie Rennie at Holyrood, and condemned by the Information Commissioner, the Nationalist plans for ID cards by the back door paves the way for all Scots citizens to be profiled and categorised by an increasingly intrusive Nationalist government.

Around 120 organisations databases will effectively be centralised and all the information held within will help the Nationalists build a highly detailed profile of all of ‘their’ citizens.

Under any government this type of centralised database is a dangerous attack on civil liberties and should be resisted at all costs. Even the wicked Tories put a stop to New Labour’s authoritarian ID card plans in 2010.

Under the Nationalists, you can be sure the database will be used and abused by those apparatchiks wishing to deal with perceived threats to unspecified Nationalist interests.

Nationalist parliamentary drones recently voted against a motion lodged by Willie Rennie to have the ID card proposals put forward as primary legislation and openly debated in parliament.

But, in tune with their Mistress’s voice, SNP drones opted to keep it as an amendment to regulations on the National Health Service Central Register from 2006. This means it won’t even require a parliamentary vote to be enacted.

So, in more than a passing parallel to the wicked Tories undemocratic plan to push EVEL through by mere amendments to Standing Orders rather than primary legislation, the Nationalists are doing a similar thing with their super database and ID cards by stealth.

Both moves are profoundly undemocratic and both moves are to the detriment of the citizens of Scotland – so much for Nationalist lip service to the “sovereign will” of the Scottish people.

So, while big ‘N’ Nationalists like Joan McAlpine whip themselves into a frothing frenzy regarding the lack of democracy demonstrated by the “ermine vermin” in the House of Lords, maybe, just maybe, these zealous radicalised fundamentalists should take a look at themselves.

Make no mistake, Joanie’s use of the toxically emotive word “vermin” to describe those she perceives as enemies isn’t just reserved for those in the House of Lords.

It’s reserved for everyone she and her type view as opposing their vision of a new Scotland.

The super database and ID cards by stealth, will ensure that Joanie and her ilk will be able to identify you, profile you and deal with you in a way they feel is appropriate.

And that’s the antithesis of democracy.

Be afraid, be very afraid.
