What does it mean, when one party leader demands the resignation of another party leader ?
Cries of "he/she must resign because he/she is incompetent / useless / unfit to lead" etc. etc. well, perhaps they say these things because in some strange way, they want the opposition to succeed.
It's a bizarre thing to say but how else can it be explained ?
In Scotland Alex (the spiv) Salmond wants the Labour leader Wendy Alexander to go because he thinks she is a failure and Tory leader David Cameron want's P.M, Gordon Brown to resign because he thinks the same, he is unfit to govern etc. It's a well quoted sound bite but is it true ?
If I was trying to defeat an opposition political party who had a leader whom I thought to be useless and incompetent that would make him / her 'defacto' an asset to me and my party, or am I missing something.
When Salmond (the spiv) and Cameron call for Alexander and Brown to go they are saying that they want their opponents to pick a better leader which would by definition make them more successful and more likely to beat them. Something not quite right here. I'm sure some of you can see where I'm going with this.
To the Labour Party I say, stand firm Alex (the spiv) and Cameron are being disingenuous, if Brown and Alexander were as useless as they say they would be happier for them to stay.
Wendy and Gordon are by far more competent and able than their accusers in the Tory and SNP parties and the right wing media who echo the same lies.
They should carry on and stick to their policies and the tide will turn, there is a long way to go and we can and will win.
"It ain't over until the fat lady sings" think Fir Park Motherwell, Pittodrie Stadium Aberdeen and Tannadice Park Dundee and ask any Old Firm fan if that statement is true.
