Glass house heavily stoned

Posted on July 14, 2017 by

And no, we’re not talking about Ruth Davidson living it up at Fingers Piano Bar. Kezia Dugdale tweeted this today:

Which would be a little bit like us gloating that Andy Murray was rubbish at tennis on the grounds that he was knocked out of Wimbledon this week.

Except that we wouldn’t actually believe that for a second, and we’re not sure Kezia Dugdale has the level of basic self-awareness required to acknowledge that she’s in Salmond’s political league about as much as we’re in Murray’s sporting one.

ALEX SALMOND LIFETIME CONSTITUENCY ELECTION WINS: 9
KEZIA DUGDALE LIFETIME CONSTITUENCY ELECTION WINS: 0

Dugdale’s win percentage of 0% compares poorly with Salmond’s 90%, in five different seats, three of which he captured from other parties. In the only election he’s lost in his 30-year career, his 36% vote share was still higher than the 33% Dugdale achieved in the only seat she’s ever contested, and he got 65% more votes than her.

If we were Kezia Dugdale – who’s only in the Parliament at all thanks to a method of bypassing the wishes of the electorate which she thinks is undemocratic, unfair and “inappropriate”, and which she ironically once bitterly attacked Salmond for deploying – we might wait just a little bit longer to start crowing.

Because people other than us are belatedly beginning to notice that Scottish Labour’s astonishing current level of out-of-control arrogant hubris is built on quicksand.

    As sending SNP MPs to WM achieves absolutely nothing, maybe it gives Alex Salmond a chance to put his considerable talents to a more productive pursuit, such as fighting for Scottish sovereignty within the Union or preferably full independence.

    Maybe it will also give him an opportunity to reconsider the flawed and foolish proven failure of “indy by referendum” policy and have a wee word in Nicola’s are about it.

    Dugdale still in a job due to Corbyn. Watching Labour at the GE was a bit like watching them anticipate the Scottish recession, all excited for bad news only for their hopes to be dashed. Watching all the Corbyn haters having to hold their tongues does make me laugh.

    It’s a bit unfortunate the next GE will probably be before the next Scottish elections, just to see what ScotLab would campaign on, Dugdale or Corbyn policies.

    I don’t see why Labour and the lib-dems are so keen to revel in the defeat of some SNP MPs by the Tories. If you look at the results, you have to ask where all these new Tory voters have come from. The answer is pretty obvious, they have come from those parties. Look at the recent result from Gordon, the Tory and Lib-dem votes almost mirror the previous election. The Tories are gaining votes at the expense of their own parties and they are hailing it as a victory. The reality is that the Tories have been effective in garnering the anti-Independence vote and they haven’t. They should be worried by this but instead seem to think it is a success. Politics has gone truly mad.

    In New Zealand it is standard and pretty uncontroversial for the top dozen or so party candidates to both stand in a constituency and be top ranked in the lists. All the main party leaders and cabinets almost always take their constituency seats though. The backup means who will take which portfolio or shadow portfolio is pretty much sewn up in advance, including wrt probable coalition partners.

    The arrogance of Labour politicians has to be seen to be believed, and Dugdale fits perfectly into that mould.

    Its an attitude I have encountered all too often from Labour politicians, they are always right even when they are wrong.

    As for Davidson not providing any surgeries, should anyone really be surprised by that? it sounds like too much work for her and anyway she would not only have to defend her government’s policies, but also have to deal the problems her constituents are suffering as a result of those policies.

    Just to recall the purpose of a diversion strategy, when a significant issue arises the author brings up a different issue designed to DIVERT ATTENTION away from this issue. The goal is to get people to talk about the diversion rather than the issue that the author may wish to avoid.

    @stewartb It’s not a diversion.

    You would rather I focus on Kezia Dugdale? How? She is a political minnow. Currently, almost irrelevant. I consider talking about her a diversion.

    I can understand Stu doing it though. He can always rely on Kezia to talk garbage and give his readers a laugh. ( “Just like Colin Alexander”, Is that what you are thinking? haha).

    Alex Salmond has great talent in the field of politics. Indyref was worth a shot. Almost there, but ultimately failed. It wasn’t foolish to have indyref 1, but having tried that strategy and learned it is a failure, then I think it would be foolish to repeat it, unless we have learned how to turn it into a winner. I see no evidence of that yet.

    Alex Salmond himself has said there are other ways to put our sovereignty into effect other than an indyref.

    Now he is freed from his work as an MP, I’m hoping he can come up with a WINNING strategy to achieve independence, or at a minimum, sovereignty within the Union, until we can achieve full independence.

    But if you consider it more important to reflect on the already well established fact that sometimes Kezia Dugdale talks pure mince, then that’s okay with me.

    I would have thought that a limit of only being able to serve in Holyrood as a list MSP Twice would be much better.
    This let’s any party put forward anyone whom they think may have some political talent.
    Which is the intent …is it no?

    Then this list MSP has two terms,which is TEN year’s to show the Scottish electorate what they have to offer us,and get themselves elected in their own right.
    Either way the list place must then go to someone else!

    It’s surely no right that someone we are no willing to elect can keep returning to the Parliament time after time and we can’t get rid of them.

    Did anyone read the report stating the UK has the best health service of the eleven examined for the care to cost ratio?

    “The NHS has been judged the best, safest and most affordable healthcare system out of 11 countries analysed and ranked by experts from the influential Commonwealth Fund health thinktank” says The Guardian.

    One major strength it said was because it’s a publicly funded health service.

    It should be noted that each NHS is separate, such as Scotland’s NHS is a separate organisation from the NHS in England, Wales, and N.I.

    There is of course another award Stu didn’t list for Alex Salmond and that is:

    The Coppetieres Award 14th December 2016 to honour Alex Salmond for outstanding dedication to democracy fairness and devolution for Scotland to name just a few of the reasons outlined by the EU in Brussels where this award was presented to the Right Honourable Alex Salmond which went unrecognised and reported by all the state media in good old Inglind and Scotland

    For those who didn’t know about it it’s not surprising seeing as how we live in a more choked by the throat media than North Korea, but pretty much the rest of the civilised world knows exactly who our Mr Salmond is and has much respect and admiration for him as they do for our current First Minister

    On the other hand mention Kezia Dugdale winner of the plasticine challenge age 4 and a half and Labour leader in Scotland and I have to say not only has nobody ever heard of her most of her own party in a poll a year ago didn’t know who she was either

    But we know don’t we folks, she’s the vacuous stupid Arsehole who can’t control the dummy in her mooth before she spits it out and if there was a button to press to vote on that subject she’d press the wrong Feckin one

    I wonder if anyone will meet AS at their local Job Centre now he’s lost his MP job. Unlikely, as so many of them are shut down meaning benefit claimants having to travel miles.

    The Job Centres the SNP were gonnae save from closure.

    How can people no accept the truth: the British Establishment absorbed Labour so it went from Keir Hardie shaking and trying to end the Establishment to Kezia serving the UK Establishment.

    They’ve done the same with the SNP. From campaigning to end Scottish involvement at Westminster, Alex Salmond cannae cannae wait to get his airse back on the green benches.

    From:

    70 years of: A vote for the SNP is a vote for independence. An SNP majority means a declaration of independence, to:

    You can vote for the SNP but it’s no a vote for independence (2015).

    Then, even worse:

    Keep Scotland Strong at Westminster ( 2017).

    What next?

    Well, we’ve already had several GEs now with the SNP begging to work with Unionists such as Labour at WM. And the Unionists have laughed.

    Now, it’s The Great Westminster Power Grab. We all can have a fair idea how that will go too: the last time WM took a power from Scotland they didnae need to grab it, the SNP voluntarily handed it over, because the UK Govt “gave them an assurance” that by doing so “nothing would change”.

    How many on here would believe a Tory assurance about anything? Probably nobody. Stu warned the Scot Govt too.

    Yet the “all wise” SNP swallowed it hook, line and sinker.

    As long the SNP are on easy money, like Kezia, things won’t change. The SNP politicians’ bank balances are filling up nicely thanks to devolution and WM.

    Again the SNP are desperate to cooperate with the Tories on Brexit.

    Oh boy, that’s really telling they Tories. A Strong Voice for Scotland, telling it straight to WM: Nowadays UK Govts just have to say jump, and the SNP say: how high?

    No wonder people are turning away from the SNP. An independence party without independence is like Labour led by Kezia.

    A waste of time.

    Just as an aside. I have been revisiting an old Xbox 360 game I’ve had for years. Grand Theft Auto V. The main reason I bought it in the first place was because it was developed in Scotland.

    Anyway, I noticed something I hadn’t noticed before.

    At the Tennis court, country club or whatever, complex on the Pacific coast, along from the big pier with the funfair rides on it, they are flying three flags.

    The Stars & Stripes in the middle but with the Butcher’s Apron and the Saltire on either side of Old Glory.

    Nae cross o St George, though.

    makes a statement that Scotland sees itself as separate from the United Kingdom. Fair cheerer me up – it did. If memory serves the development was done in Either Dundee or Edinburgh or maybe both.

    There is actually quite a few very humorous bits and pieces that only Scots would find and find hilarious. For example they have a couple of on-line Stock Markets and the original one is titled, “The BAWSAQ”, the Scots who worked on the game certainly had a real Scottish sense of humour.

    I wonder it the people in the parent company actually knew some of the more subtle Scots humour included.

    Probably also worth mentioning that if you want information on how the Brexit settlement negotiations are proceeding, the press is the last place you want to look.

    Can’t be stressed enough – GO TO SOURCE

    If you want to know what the Scottish government are doing, go to Scotgov site and likewise with EU releases go to the EU home page and follow the links on Brexit. (UK gov probably not so much. They do have the use of the UK meeja for that after all.)

    What we’re seeing right now is action and consequence, process and procedure. To folk like me, the official updates are boring and sometimes difficult to digest, but the effort is worth it.

    Real news is just that, boring. A recounting of statements made in context, of facts on events, procedures and consequences. Law, international law, international diplomacy and the affairs of legislation and governments is boring, complex and fraught with legal, constitutional and economic consequences not readily visible to folk. Think iceberg.

    If you think the bit above the waterline looks scary, you don’t want to think about what’s under the waves.

    The consequences of Brexit are now beginning to show themselves in all sorts of places and situations which most people hadn’t thought of. From the shopping basket to constitutional and international law, this particular iceberg is a big bastirt.

    Worth bearing in mind.

    Oh! The whole World of computer games are seeing it as the Grand Theft Auto games are among the longest running series of computer games ever.

    Whether the rest of the World can understand the many bits of typically Scottish humour that runs through the game is another thing entirely. The game has now been released, in even better resolution, directly on windows 10 computers and they have announced that the previous game in the series, GTA IV, is to soon be able to be accessed from within GTA V.

    GTA IV is set in a fictional city modelled on New York and GTA V is modelled on Los Angeles and Hollywood. In both cases the game really unmercifully, “rips the pish”, out of the worse aspects of USA culture.

    Traits, such as colour prejudice, gun ownership and the cult of the’ Celeb are mercilessly lampooned. So now the player has a rather large in game geographic area to roam around and an even larger cast of characters that I have no doubt will wander into each others territory.

    There has been limited bits of characters from the many off-shoot sub-games generated throughout the series with characters from previous versions popping up in the next series in line.

    It is just one more field in which Scots and Scotland excels. In an independent Scotland I’m sure it will be a, “Nice little Earner”, for the Scottish Treasury and will see computer games companies making inward investments.

    They are, though, decidedly adult games but I have no doubt they are very popular with the teen and older pre-teens too.

    I phoned Cornton Vale prison today.

    We are not allowed to send in any gifts – for obvious reasons but we can send in cash, by recorded delivery, with the name of the prisoner i.e. Angela Zelter/Brian Quail and date of birth – if known.

    The prison will then ensure that the money is credited to their prison account which allows them to use it to buy things in the prison shop or use it towards phone calls.

    Money can be handed across at any HM prison with instructions to credit it to the account of Angela or Brian at their respective prisons i.e. Cornton Vale/Low Moss.

    I read in the National that their friends and supporters have asked that people send them cards and letters.

    Maybe some of us can get motivated to do that.

    Unionists dont think like that. They never have. All they care about is the UK, their country. Scotland’s merely a region to them all, a region to be kept down and in check, because otherwise…change might come about.

    Its a 300 year old country what they love and will not allow to be ended. Legacy like that sits at the front of all yoon minds.

    It costs lives too, look at Blair, Brown etc and their horror wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Why would a socialist party like Lab go to war with neo fascist Bush Washington?
