The Independence campaign twitter site launched after their fiasco of a launch last week has been forced to concede that they have been caught out again. This time they have been 'at it' by counting every visitor to the site as a supporter without asking their permission, tawdry, sleazy, very underhand, very SNP. This is another sign of desperation just like their failed attempt to load the question on the ballot paper, this desperation has also led them to describe people who wouldn't be recognised walking down a Scottish street as "A" List celebrities. Watching them join in singing Caledonia with a rough sleeper who had wandered in with a guitar was reminiscent of what Oscar Wilde (a brilliant man despite not being Scottish) said about the death of little Nell "you would have had to have a heart of stone not to laugh"
The question now is will Nicola Sturgeon be the first to implode and be 'huckled' as they say around these parts in to a rubber room. On her TV appearance the other night when she suggested 'shooting from the hip' that Scotland under independence would be entitled to a seat at the bank of England decision making table, she was subjected to such ridicule and derision from fellow panellists and audience members alike that she was left wearing the expression of the first person in the movie to see the monster, the panic in her eyes suggested that she could hear the white coats flapping. These occasions will become more and more common as the debate goes on and the SNP are forced to answer questions. They are already beginning to unravel. The hapless wee Nicola may well get some 'gardening leave' to try to avoid any more embarrassing fiascos. What about MacAskill, or Alex Neil, or 'Murmuring John Swinney' if he can be found? A huge pool of talent right?
They will have to rely maybe on being rescued by "Wan seat Harvie" and "Nae seats Fox" from the Greens and the SSP. Let's face it try as they might these two will never replace "Screaming Lord Sutch" Even with two and a half years to go I would say 'the game's a bogie, the baw's broke' but at least it will be two and a half years of jolly good fun. Reducing bullies to quivering wrecks is always worth doing.
