The fact that John Swinney has been awarded the “politician of the year” award leads me to suspect two things 1/ that there is a convention that the award goes to someone in the Govt. and 2/ that Alex (the spiv) Salmond has allowed him to accept it. I can imagine Swinney approaching ‘the spiv’ crawling and scraping while saying he was in the running and would it be alright because everyone knows that he (the spiv) was the real “politician of every year “ with eyes lowered and forelock well tugged. The mighty leader loves having his ego massaged and toadying nonentities like Swinney have practiced it to perfection the guy is a man of straw. In a healthy political party having opposed (the spiv) as leader he would have retired gracefully to the back benches but Alex (the spiv) took him under his wing and promoted him; it is rather obvious evidence of the lack of ability in the SNP that he remains in a prominent position; he also embodies the policy of ‘no dissent’ which also characterises the party; he is the epitome of loyalty with a dash of craven cowardice.
It says it all when the SNP at this moment are on to their 3rd. policy position over the Glasgow Airport Rail Link (GARL) here in Renfrewshire council the hapless leader Derek Mackay SNP has opposed the link; then supported it and now opposes it again. here is a man of no substance whatever; he has been humiliated by Salmond (the spiv’s) orders to perform U Turns; a lightweight fawning character whom Salmond will encourage because of his sycophancy rather than his talent, we will here more of Derek; Alex (the spiv) always has room for another lackey. Just like the lackey Fiona Hyslop at education; recent figures reveal that under Labour teacher numbers rose by 2,000 and under the SNP last year 1,000 teaching jobs were cut; here in Renfrewshire teaching morale is at record lows and we now have the worst teacher pupil ratios in Scotland for our secondary Schools and the second worst for primary Schools; Fiona Hyslop continues to enjoy the benefaction of (the spiv) Salmond she is another non boat rocker; where is the dissent? Does no one in the SNP disagree?
Perhaps the single incident which best illustrates the vacuity at the heart of the SNP is the Trump affair or Trumpgate as it’s becoming known. The misty eyed maudlin element which makes nationalism so pathetic was brutally trampled on by Salmond (the spiv) when he did his upmost to assist this American to rape one of the most beautiful and remote parts of what the syrupy overemotional bravehearts call our beautiful wild highlands; now the people who live in this remote part of the country are to be evicted because of Salmond (the spiv’s) deference to a super rich Yank who wants to replace people with golf and houses for the rich; Another version of the clearances really; this time we get golf instead of sheep. How does that play with the mawkish ‘grannies heilan hame’ wing of the party; is there no dissent even from them.
“grannies heilan hame and wild beautiful highlands my joe Royle as you say here in England Mr. Salmond” (D Trump)
“Your right on the money as usual boss” (Alex ‘the spiv’ Salmond)
Will no one in the SNP show any backbone; what kind of party is that? can it possibly be that every one of them are cowards? Can Salmond (the spiv) really be more powerful than Hitler and Stalin?
