I watched Labour’s Douglas Alexander on the “Scotland 2014” programme last night where his opponent was Humza Yousaf, rising star of the hard working snp Asian community as they debated independence. I mention this because I want to advise people to watch this mismatch, you can find it on line. Catch it if you can because it could turn out to be the last time you will see Mr. Yousaf on our screens, at least until the referendum is over.
A couple of nights ago I watched the same Douglas Alexander toy with the snp’s Nicola Sturgeon like a cat with a mouse, the makeup of that programme and the recent bad publicity for the snp tartanshirt street mobs made it impossible for her to morph into “Sturgeon Stairheid Snarler” and consequently no one noticed her. Douglas Alexander’s task was easy and it showed on the night, proving that you do not have to yell if you are armed with the facts and the truth.
