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.

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.
