The determination to blame everything that they think goes wrong on the English and particularly “London Labour” has for long been a particularly distasteful constant in the lives of the SNP and it’s elected members; ordinary members; and supporters. During the campaign to host the Olympic Games the SNP MSP’s at Holyrood had cards displayed on their desks which read “Anywhere but London” make what you will of such a mentality; I find it disturbing and also racist. What reason could they possibly have for doing such a thing? Scotland were not bidding to stage the Olympics so why? anti English racism that’s why.
Each time I see something like that I feel embarrassed and ashamed to be Scottish; it is vicious and undignified to most Scots. when people hear about it they can’t understand such vitriol. It seems that sometimes you think the SNP can't sink any lower; that’s the time for someone like SNP MSP Christine Grahame to raise her head and display her deeply repugnant personality. Her incomprehensible hatred for all things English can always be relied on to lead her to excess and so it proves again.
She was last seen snarling about too much Cricket on Scottish TV; yes that’s her level “Cricket = English” to this boor; she later found out that Cricket is more popular in Scotland than in England but let’s not dwell too much on her intelligence. She was also lately growling like a mad dog about grabbing Berwick back from the English as well; I know it looks funny but believe me she is serious; she really is.
Today she goes further; most people have standards some of course are more exacting than others; some are low some are non existent and then there are the standards of Christine Grahame SNP MSP which don’t register in any way; anywhere. I have watched with growing distaste as Salmond (the spiv) stitched himself to any cause which might win a vote; Dunblane, Drowned Fishermen, Dead Soldiers etc but even he has stopped short of what Ms. Grahame has now come up with.
Wearing her most truculent sneer she makes the case that Scottish Soldiers are more likely to be injured or killed in Iraq and Afghanistan than those from elsewhere in the UK , she claimed that Scots. represented a figure of 9.4% against 8.6% for the rest of the UK. The Army attacked the figures as wrong but; that’s not my problem with her; my concern is with what she was trying to do. Notwithstanding the leader of the UK Govt. who speaks for the country when he makes his comments about those injured or killed I find that when politicians get involved with the casualties and deaths of individual soldiers they are exploiting them for their own ends; just like the wretched SSP when they manipulated and exploited the mother of dead soldier Gordon Gentle. Grahame is trying to imply that Scottish soldiers are in some way being used as some kind of cannon fodder by the hated London Labour and the English establishment; how else do we explain the comparison she makes. Her concern and that of the SNP is not for the welfare of the soldiers that she cruelly and ruthlessly manipulates her raison d’être is to damage the Govt. and the English and boost her own contemptible party and by doing so she again betrays and embarrasses Scots. everywhere.
Mothers; fathers; spouses and children and friends of soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan; don’t be fooled by this pitiless political mountebank, this is a truly awful example of cheap and nasty opportunism but it’s an example that could only be countenanced by the lowest political operators, queen of whom is Christine Grahame SNP MSP.

Oh dear! The usual cueless rant! Not that I want to stick up for the SNP but their stance with regard to the Olympics has been about how Scotland, and especially Scottish charities, are losing out because the national lottery is being plundered more and more to help pay for it.
Also as a nationalist, with nothing to do with the SNP, it has nothing to do with hating the English but to do with standing on our own two feet - something that unionists cannot do being in political parties being funded from England. Most nationalists like myself have English relatives so please explain how we hate them.
Hate to break the news to you but it is your Labour party's fault that the troops are out getting killed in Afghanistan in the first place - through a pack of lies just like Iraq.
Scottish charities, are losing out
it has nothing to do with hating the English
to do with standing on our own two feet
something that unionists cannot do
political parties being funded from England
Most nationalists like myself have English relatives
your Labour party's fault that the troops are out getting killed
a pack of lies just like Iraq.
The usual clueless rant did you say.
Kelly @ 4.12
Councillor, seems to me Anon has expressed three opinions. These are subjective.
But there are also four factual claims in his post: Charities are losing out to the Olympics, Parties are reliant on English funding, Labours wars are getting troops killed, Labour lied about Iraq.
Are you going to bluster, or are you going to rebut his claims?
When I listed his points and described them as the usual rant; you can consider them rebutted; do try to keep up.
Did any of them relate to the article on Christine Grahame?
You're blustering, Bonny Lad.
Blair lied us into war and although he has bankrupted us,Brown promises what remains of the family jewels to save the world from Global Warming.
The Kelly response is to bring up a nonentity of a MSP whinging about football.
As the Mammy would say, 'You're not a serious politician, are you, our Terry?'
“Blair lied us into war”
Well: who would have thunk it; where did you get that from?
I thunked Blair lied a long time ago....you said he was a naive innocent who had been mislead.
Not totally clued up on Big Boys Politics, are you son?
“you said he was a naive innocent who had been mislead”
Wrong again where did I say this; are you trying for a record?
I doubt that anyone, even one clearly as simple as you would consider Blair “naive and innocent”
Read your back list - you denied that Blair had lied over WMD.
Wrap it up in a Red Flag and Kelly salutes it.
Any views on his statement that regime change in Iraq would have been reason enough to invade, Councillor?
“you denied that Blair had lied over WMD”
correct; and your point is?
Regime change is a perfectly acceptable reason to invade somewhere; think Hitler; Mussolini; Franco; Thatcher.
I use one scoup of WMD in my washing and everything comes out white, pass this tip onto your readers.
'Regime change is an acceptable reason to invade.'
Good on yer, Councillor. The UN says it isn't a good and sufficient reason, but Kelly says it is. Well done, the Renfrew One! As usual,out of step, but still ploughing on.
Now, will you tell us which regime Lady Thatcher changed...? And explain why the Bay of Pigs fits your belief that regime change is a good thing?
"Each time I see something like that I feel embarrassed and ashamed to be Scottish"... But you aren't Scottish Terry, hence your massive, hiped up, ignorant rhetoric. If you are a socialist why not join a socialist party instead of the ragged band of apes whose best interests are in propping up rich bankers. As for Graham I think she is taking on important issues and not fallen for the "civic Scotland" BS that says don't criticise the main pillars of the British state; The MoD, The Queen, The House of Lords, Your beloved Prime Minister, Banker benefit billions. On second thoughts you are a real asset to the British nationalist Labour Party, so keep it up.
Dear Daisy Couk – thank you for this; the wit the repartee; it cheered me up. I hope that our troups; some of whom read my blog are not laughing too much that they can’t shout straight.
Clueless again this is not really all that difficult to understand are you really that dense? Try reading it again; stop making a fool of yourself;
“your belief that regime change is a good thing?”
Wrong again; for Christ’s sake get a grip; changing the regime of Adolph Hitler would be a good thing right? am I getting warm? Is there anyone in?
“But you aren't Scottish Terry, hence your massive, hiped up, ignorant rhetoric”
So anyone using hyped up ignorant rhetoric can’t be Scottish; or is it just me? atsa a cracker; just like the clown MacKaskill’s statement that Scots. are compassionate what colour is the sky in your world.
Grahame and her vile anti English bile is a disgrace to Scotland; you deserve each other.
Graham was born in England... Does that make Brown's support of England, when they play Scotland (yes he did do that) make him anti-Scottish... What a self loathing country this is !
Where someone is born is utterly meaningless; it makes no difference to a person’s character whatsoever.
“Brown's support of England, when they play Scotland (yes he did do that)”
I am a keen follower of football and an even keener follower of politics and I’ve never heard of that; you will have to prove it to me. He did nominate a great goal by Gascoine against Scotland as one of his favourites which I agree with. England have scored some wonderful goals; some of them against Scotland; live with it.
Take a good hard look at yourself and you might understand a bit more about the self loathing; anyone who refuses to acknowledge a great goal or performance against Scotland because it came from England is worthy of the description self loathing.
Quote: "He did nominate a great goal by Gascoine against Scotland as one of his favourites which I agree with." - even by your standards Terry this is utterly ridiculous. Admit it you hate Scotland and everything about Scotland, just like your boss Brown and the rest of the British nationalist Labour Party. That is why they have the red rose of England as their party emblem, why they push the Union Jack, why they back England/GB football teams (regardless of the threat that poses to Scottish football and our economy)... But I like your honesty about English imperialist ambition in Scotland and other countries and your admission that Blair is no better than Thatcher, Hitler, Franco et al... I hope you and your fascist heroes all meet the same end.
Sorry T, guess I am clueless, but please be helpful to a bewildered old man.
You claimed Lady Thatcher acted to bring about regime change. Where was this exactly, because, like so many other things in life,it passed me by.
And if,you're still denying Blair lied about WMD, I salute your loyalty but not your brain
“You claimed Lady Thatcher acted to bring about regime change”
You leave me no alternative but to assume that you really are quite stupid; perhaps we could clear up this point by you quoting me saying that Thatcher acted to bring about regime change; if you can find the quote that is.
I make the assumption that you believe that Thatcher went to war in the Falklands for honest reasons; that she sank the Belgrano for honest reasons.
You don’t believe these things happened to save her political career right? Loyalty and brains right enough.
Thank you for solving the question; you had to be either 9 or 90 years old.
“Admit it you hate Scotland and everything about Scotland”
I neither hate nor Love Scotland or indeed any other country; anyone who says they have feelings for an inanimate object needs their head read; I love my kitchen table and my kitchen table loves me so there.
“Admit it you hate Scotland and everything about Scotland, just like your boss Brown and the rest of the British nationalist Labour Party”
Do people therefore who vote for or join the Scottish nationalist Party hate England and everything about England?
“That is why they have the red rose of England as their party emblem”
Not true; the Floral emblem of England is an amalgam of the red rose of Lancaster and the white rose of Yorkshire; dating of course back to the “Wars of the Roses” it was in all the papers at the time.
“why they (Labour) back England/GB football teams”
I’m known for my patience and fairness so I will give you another chance; you stated that “Gordon Brown supported England when they played Scotland” I asked you to prove it to me; when and where was this? Well!
“like your honesty about English imperialist ambition in Scotland and other countries and your admission that Blair is no better than Thatcher, Hitler, Franco”
Back to the “Brown supports England against Scotland” stuff right? explain when and where I said any of the above.
Terry, memory going, you're poor old soul?
Yours @ 5.12, 15th Dec, lumped the lady with Hitler, Mussolini and Franco in the sentence 'regime change is a perfectly acceptable reason fo invade somewhere.'
Honestly didn't think Lady T, or Franco, invaded anywhere, but if you know differently....!
