Here’s Willie Rennie in the Times this week, castigating the Scottish Government for not having successfully done a £10bn deal with China:
And here he is in today’s Scottish Mail On Sunday, lashing the Scottish Government for seeking investment from Qatar, on the grounds of its human rights record.
We can only conclude from this that Mr Rennie feels China’s human rights record is an impeccable exemplar the rest of the world should follow.
Which is weird, because that isn’t what he thought as recently as last year:
To be quite honest with you, readers, we don’t even mind so much that Scotland has a completely useless opposition whose only mantra is that the SNP are bad.
But if they could at least keep their story even halfway straight as to why they’re bad – and particularly whether it’s for doing deals with “immoral” states or for FAILING to do deals with them – it’d save us an awful lot of tedious filing.
