Friends and readers.
So cuts supporter and loud mouth, Scots Tory leader Ruthie bulldog Davidson has been named Scottish politician of the year. Well three cheers for her given that in reality her mob won just under 15% of the vote at the May Holyrood elections, the lowest ever that the Tories have polled in Scotland, and with Ruthie at the helm. The vast majority of them were elected on the pathetic list sysyem which if allowed to continue will damage the credibility, or what’s left of it, of Scottish politics.
Davidson is only shining because Dugdale is so useless and who herself was elected on the list after failing miserably in trying to con the voters into giving her a first past the post victory. Ruthie failed against Boris, failed to convince the public not to vote Brexit. She has presided over the Tories losing the overall percentage of the vote in Scotland year on year. It is only the anomalies of the Holyrood electoral system that got her so many seats. On First past the post the Tories would have been decimated.
As the SNP star starts to dim and wee Nickie begins to look and sound like a lost sheep, and not without her own internal numpties to deal with she has failed to keep her finger on the pulse instead preferring to look and sound completely out of her depth over the Brexit issue. Her handling of the recent meeting she had with PM May was nothing short of disastrous and instead of seeking the best deal for us before Article 50 is invoked in March next year she behaved like a spoilt child who had her sweeties taken away, hence her popular nick name nippy sweety.
Since no alternative view is allowed in the SNP much like Labour used to be, and look what has happened to them, then her band of MSP’s and Mp’s tow the line, and will continue to tow the line until they think they cannot win again with nippy as leader, and that day dear friends is coming right around that corner. You don’t have to look far to see the mirror image that is happening within the SNP.
We recently spoke to a former leading light in the Edinburgh Labour Party who told us that what is happening right now in the SNP is exactly what happened in the Labour Party years ago and which directly led to it’s demise. She told us that both Diedre Cobber Brock the SNP MP for Edinburgh North and Leith and Ben your honour MacPherson MSP for the same constituency are actively trying to alter the constituency party to mirror image what they want. And since no internal discord is allowed then members can only privately voice their concerns, for the time being that is.
We at Sucks cannot confirm or deny if this is true as we cannot find anyone who will say what exactly is going on within the ranks of the SNP but it sounds like a familiar doomed to failure story. All we can say is that our reliable source has many years experience of the back stabbing and private meetings that go on within politics both at local and national level which result in members leaving with only the hardcore of hand chosen clones left to run the organisation.
This is sadly what becomes of a political party who thinks they are unassailable, clamp down on any opinion which differs from the party line, hand pick office bearers both at branch and constituency level, or that bow down before the MP and MSP’s private gang, before the meetings ever take place, and present it as a democratic decision. Well it’s not new it’s all been done before and it always ends in tears.
This insidious culture is a creeping virus and those that don’t want to be seen as different or have an alternative view will fall into line, those that do express concern or should have the audacity to express a different view from the party hacks will be sidelined.
So dear friends the real news is not that some Tory was named Scottish politician of the year, people queuing at food banks or struggling to make ends meet don’t give a flying fuck who is named what, the real news and shame is that your Government is failing you, it’s priorities are not what you think they should be and the people who you voted for to push and look after your interests are preoccupied looking after their own interests, and that dear friends is the inevitability of clones disappearing up their own backsides.
