Am I the only one wondering how Alex (the spiv) Salmond and the SNP are feeling right now and over the past week or two following the horrific events surrounding Celtic manager Neil Lennon, Trish Godman MSP, Paul McBride QC and Brian Wilson ex Labour MP and cabinet minister?
We all know by now that all four have been targeted by some demented bigot or bigots who sent them parcel bombs which; according to Police were designed to and capable of causing serious injury and even death. We also know why they were targeted, it's because all four are prominent supporters of Glasgow Celtic FC. This is Scotland Alex! 2011, a country rife with sectarian and racist poison, it's time you admitted it and tackled it instead of denying it, stop telling us what a wonderful country we live in and start telling the truth. I will come back to this.
This is the country described by the crass and blustering Justice Minister SNP MSP Kenny McKaskill as "compassionate" when he released the Lockerbie Bomber (a correct decision) which he made a mess of, let me repeat what I said about him then. There is no such thing as a compassionate country it is a stupid and chauvinistic insult to claim such crap, people can be compassionate; countries can't. A couple of weeks ago this same utter clown described the Celtic Rangers Cup Final as a show piece for Scottish Football when everyone who was at the game or heard it on radio or saw it on TV knew that the atmosphere was once again polluted by sectarian racist chanting and singing throughout, this guy is a figure of fun but dangerous, he should not be allowed near any position of influence or power.
Alex (the spiv) Salmond saw personal advantage and acted instinctively to exploit it he jumped in and organised a summit which he of course chaired, who else with an election approaching, it doesn't get any lower. This is the same man who withdrew funding from organisations which were set up by the last labour Government to tackle sectarianism and racism in Scotland, organisations such as "Nil by Mouth" If Salmond really cared about such things he would curb his and his members language which continues to be anti English and dangerous, we live in a country where someone can be attacked for having an English accent and Salmond (the spiv) and the SNP encourage it. It used to be the fault of England and the English for everything that they saw as wrong. That became too obvious and thuggish and has now become 'London rule' rather than English rule, 'down south' rather than England and 'Westminster orders' rather than English orders but the meaning is the same. As long as the SNP continue to use such language they will be responsible for making the streets dangerous for those with English accents and they will continue to shame Scotland.
Meanwhile Alex (the spiv) Salmond is hoping that he has pulled a fast one and people will not remember how he withdrew funding from the cause he now belatedly is championing, as I said "it doesn't get any lower"
