"Oh there's a fella doon the road that I avoid
he's wan o them they call the unemployed
he says it's aw because o me
he cannae get a joab when I've got three,
Three nights an a sunday double time"
Song, I'm looking for a job -- Matt McGinn.
McGinn's hilarious but serious song could have been written for Alex (the spiv) Salmond who is about to depart Westminster with a redundancy or resettlement pay out (call it what you will) of £65,000. He has been trousering 3 salaries; paid for by you and me for 3 years, MSP, First Minister and, the one which causes him to sneer the most, MP. Honestly, we have been paying him as an MP as well, he can’t walk through the entrance at Westminster without security challenging him because nobody knows who he is, his visits to the House of Commons are as rare as a “rocking horse’s s***e”.
The £65,000 is to help him ‘resettle’ following the end of his ‘nice little earner’ in Westminster; this payout is designed to assist MP’s who have lost their jobs while Alex (the spiv) has lost only one of his 3 jobs; being such an immoral degenerate he has; after much agonising decided to say “jist gies the readies” a true Scot. If ever there was one eh? It is often said that flitting house is one of the most traumatic things in a person’s life so let’s hope the £65,000 will sustain him through his ordeal.
Billy Connolly, a far greater Scot. than Wallace (not the Lisbon Lion) or Bruce, a guy with plenty of smarts despite his public persona once memorably said that Andrew Carnegie the great Scottish/American millionaire and Union busting thug gave money away as silently as a waiter falling down stairs with a full tray of glasses; Salmond (the spiv) it seems has learned from the ‘fly wee Fifer’ his minders say he will give an undisclosed amount to charity but; he did not want to say how much he will give to charity because "he does not want it to look like he is using it for electoral gain" (the spiv) commented "For the last three years I've put all of my gross Scottish Parliament salary (the smaller one) into a charity helping youth cases in the North east of Scotland – that's over £50,000" (he doesn't want us to know that though right?)
(Del boy) Salmond must think we are either all daft or members of the SNP, (is there a difference I hear you ask) there is an unpleasant veneer of deceit and duplicity which clings to this wretched fraud of a man. He is a disquieting character who gives the impression of malice and complete ruthlessness; an impossible man to warm to. I find it impossible to believe that no one within the ranks of the SNP is prepared to challenge his behaviour. He claims to want to avoid the accusation of chasing votes by charity donations yet never misses an opportunity to mention the money he donates to charities in the area he represents and in case anyone doesn’t get the message about what a lovely guy he is he makes sure the charity bears his name; does anyone really believe that there is no electoral gain in a politician donating money to a charity with his name on it? Our Jewish friends have a marvellous word for such brass necked behaviour, Chutzpah, look it up.
When Salmond (the spiv) behaves like this he is treating the ordinary people of his area and the people of Scotland with undisguised contempt; it is clear that he considers us all beneath him, is there not one nationalist with the bottle to stand up and say OK wide boy enough is enough.
