Have a look at my previous post about Salmond (the spiv) and his attitude to Thatcherite economics. I asked if any SNP member would be prepared to publicly criticise him for his ‘unpardonable folly’ Following 2 days of eerie silence and comments which avoided the issue we seem to have a result.
My old friend Jim Sillars (more old than friend) has once again taken the SNP faint hearts and rubbed their noses in the dirt, (Glasgow Herald Aug. 23 Rd. 08 letters page) his critique of the ‘spiv’ is quite devastating, particularly as he still wears the crown of the “king over the water” even if his once loyal brave heart supporters have long ago tucked their kilts between their legs and dived into the pit full of crashed bottles.

He had overwhelming support when he ran against John Swinney from these sturdy SNP heilan types in Renfrewshire, McFee, Mitchell, Lawson, what has happened to them and the others / alas for poor Scotland all neutered, they have metaphorically speaking gone ‘homeward tae think again’ to paraphrase the national dirge. We now listen in vain to here his name, it has been banished from SNP speak, it lies in the midden alongside independence and the rightful Scottish Monarchy, not since Bonnie Prince Charlie was hidden under a pile of stones to escape the Engurlish B******* have we seen the like, this is where we get the lament “Bonnie Chairlie’s noo awa (wall) but I digress.

Is it too late for the true nationalists to “rise now and be a nuisance again” flickers of hope were seen/heard at Hampden the other day when God Save the Queen was given the treatment by the brave never say die ’tartan army’ to those of you (the true SNP) mumbling into your beards I say ‘it’s time’ and I include the men among you as well, bring back Jim Sillars, no party can afford to ignore the claims of a man of such experience, just consider the number of parties he’s been in to start with.

Trump, Muslim group money, Police numbers, First time loans, Student Finance, Thatcher Economics, Souter, class sizes, I could go on but I’m sure you get the picture, ’the spiv’ is smirking at the real SNP as well as the rest of us.

If New Labour weren't so keen on "Trumptown" - they might have nailed him on this one, and were it not for the fact that New Labour have done countless u-turns on Transport policy, thet cound have got him on that one too.

It looks more and more like New Labour and the SNP are two sides of the same Thatch made coin....

I think if you look again you will see that he has nailed himself on this, what would have happened if one of the Labour leadership contenders had said this ? Would ‘the spiv’ have said anything ?

Another one to add to the list of U-turns is the SNP led West Dunbarton councils decision to renege on an agreement to pay female workers compensation / back pay.

They will only get away with it for so long.

Council employees in Renfrewshire, Aberdeen and now West Dumbarton are learning the hard way what it means to have right wing administrations, There is more misery to come from the “Tartan Tories”
