Unedifying obfuscation is now the default position of the SNP and their mob of supporters in relation to Fracking as they twist and turn while refusing to ban it entirely. In the course of the past year they have gone from sabre rattling against Fracking to being terrified to mention it at all, they adopted the prison camp guard’s excuse of ‘we are following orders, we can’t ban it’ when in actual fact they can ban it, so why the tissue of lies?.
Such was the determination of the SNP hierarchy to stamp out dissent on this that they made sure that it would not be debated at their conference, so to those SNP members who are opposed to it which means most of them before they were stood on by Nicola and her guards the order is ‘whatever you say, say nothing’, or else. This deception got them by the recent Holyrood election but it helped to lose the SNP its overall majority, this in turn led to a situation which could only be described as humiliating for Sturgeon and her now minority government as she instructed her party to abstain and the remaining MSP’S led by Labour recorded a victory for banning over it’s then only supporters the Tories. It all begs the question, how long can the SNP keep going without a rebellion in the ranks, bit by bit the things which the SNP once stood for are being dismantled by the likes of Sturgeon, Swinney and Neil who chose the careerist path a long time ago.
There is a spectre hanging over this whole business and that spectre is called Jim Ratcliffe the owner of Ineos who, with the help of the SNP destroyed so many jobs at Grangemouth. It was he who smiled to the cameras on leaving a meeting with the SNP as he stated ‘I see no problem with Fracking going ahead’ could the sinister smirking face of Fergus Ewing who was right behind him have had anything to do with Mr. Ratcliffe’s confidence?. I smell an SNP rat and that is why they are in such a mess over this issue. Make no mistake about it when a man like Ratcliffe looks at someone like Nicola Sturgeon he sees what con men call a ‘mark’.
