So we are back to normal here in Scotland with the Tories and the SNP back “in bed together”, they are always in bed together of course but this time there is nowhere to hide, no stone big enough for them to crawl under, there is no lie available to hide their betrayal and deceit. The Tory/SNP cabal which runs Holyrood have circled the wagons and supported each other in their drive for austerity, is anyone really surprised?. The only difference between them is the Tories are professional crooks and the SNP are enthusiastic amateurs, hence the SNP scandal a day has become a regular show in Scotland.
The issue could hardly be more grave or straight forward, we are heading for draconian service cuts, job losses and austerity with a capital A, with major damage to be done to education making our Scottish children’s futures more difficult. Labour, supported by the Libdems proposed a tax rise of 1 penny to mitigate the impact of what is going to be savage austerity and the SNP supported by the Tories voted the Labour/Libdem motion down, the SNP have been smoked out and as the Tory spokesman rightly said, we (Tories) are happy to be “better together” with the SNP in opposing the 1 penny tax rise.
The phrase “better together” resonates and has come back to bite the wretched SNP, it was underhandedly used by the SNP to link Labour with the Tories and now they are “better together” with the Tories, “in bed with the Tories”, and there is a massive difference between both descriptions.
The SNP accusation related to the referendum which of course had nothing to do with politics and everything to do with the constitution. The Tory/SNP pact on taxes is a nakedly political act which cannot be dressed up as anything else, it’s a Tory policy borrowed by and supported by the Scottish traitors of the SNP. Will the Scottish people at long last take a hard look at these shysters?.
