Pete Wishart seems intent on testing to its limit my resolve to vote SNP for the sake of the independence cause. As Speaker, he would be lost to the SNP group at Westminster. Whether or not he has any chance of getting this job at the heart of the British establishment, he is effectively declaring his desire to withdraw from the fight for independence in favour of trying to make the British parliament work a wee bit better. If this is evidence of his priorities, what use is he to me or anyone else who considers ending the Union a matter of the utmost importance and urgency?
We need politicians who are totally dedicated to saving Scotland from the scourge of British Nationalism. I’m sure as hell not seeing that kind of commitment from somebody who appears to have totally forgotten the opening paragraphs of the SNP’s constitution.
