The SNP - political thrush
I have no issue with anyone wanting 'independence'. Independence is a good thing, for everyone. However, the SNP version of independence concerns me. 'An independent Scotland within Europe' rings a bell, (feel free to correct me if I am wrong, I can't be bothered checking any facts. Collect your refund on the way out etc etc). So, as far as the SNP is concerned, it's goodbye London and hello Brussels. So, it's not really independence then, is it? But as long as the bastard English have been told where to get off, that's all that matters, eh....
They are even more Nanny State than NuLieBore. We are cajoled and pushed around to the whim of the socialist, (and they are socialists, big time), mantra. Unable to think for ourselves apparently, we are constantly told that we drink to much, have poor diet, don't take enough exercise and are incapable of being good parents. The amount of Scottish Government adverts on TV/radio and in the press is simply staggering. Stupid schemes to 'rectify' our national ills are launched, a recent example being the minimum pricing for alcohol nonsense. It won't 'cure' the problem, but they must be seen to be doing something. And being politicians the only thing they can come up with is making us pay more for our swally. If you have had the misfortune to read some of the more rabid pro SNP blogs, you would be forgiven for thinking that you had stumbled into a Labourlist socialist wank fest. Any dissenting comments are put down with the usual socialist tactic of mockery and smugness.
But what really gets to me with the SNP is that they take advantage of the politically naive. You see Fat Eck on the telly spouting some drivel about 'our oil' and taking control of 'our destiny' and the impressionable wanna be freedom fighters puts the X next to the SNP candidates name come election time. I can't believe people actually fall for all the bullshit they spout. There's absolutely nothing wrong with being proud of your country, being a proud Scot. But who gave the SNP sole right to the 'proud Scot' badge? They have hi-jacked it to serve their own needs.
Scotland desperately needs more 'pro-independence' parties. It shouldn't be the sole property of one party, a socialist kneejerk party. The SNP are more dangerous than NuLieBore.
SNP - Political Thrush. SNP - Irritating Twats.
