The British parties are not relevant to Scotland. It doesn’t matter who gets to sit in the comfy chair, they are irrelevant. They are not part of Scotland’s politics. They are outside interference.
British politicians squat in the Scottish Parliament like malignant, malicious cuckoos. They are interlopers intent on disrespecting, denigrating and ultimately destroying the very institution to which they are privileged to be elected. They, and their colleagues in the British parliament, don’t even pretend to try and represent either their constituents or the country they claim to be ‘proud’ of.
They are British Nationalists. They are a blight on Scotland’s democracy. They are a cancer at the heart of our nation.
It matters not at all which of the British parties they belong to or who their ‘leader’ is, they all adhere to the same ‘One Nation’ ideology and will stop at nothing to preserve their precious Union.
If anyone thinks to condemn this as a sweeping and unjust generalisation, let them first think of any MSP or MP from any of the British parties who could reasonably be regarded as an exception.
That Michelle Ballantyne is being suggested as the new pretendy leader of a pretendy party implies that she has certain qualities. Qualities which most people would feel insulted to have attributed to them. She must be dissembling, dishonest, detached from reality, lacking in self-awareness, unabashedly hypocritical, vacuous to the point of imbecility and totally unprincipled. Most of all, she must be unquestioningly loyal to the real leader of the real party and unhesitatingly obedient in serving the British establishment.
I come to this with no strong opinions about Ballantyne other than the abhorrence I hold for all British Nationalists – particularly those that infest Holyrood. Indeed, I was barely aware of her existence until now. Her gaffes and inanities are pretty tame compared to those of some of her cuckoo colleagues. But the fact that she is considered a suitable candidate to take over from Ruth Davidson necessarily means that she is the kind of individual I consider a plague on politics.
We know how to wipe out this plague. #DissolveTheUnion
