Good morning Scotland

August 16, 2015 at 8:15 pm (Beyond parody, Rosie B, scotland)

Here in Scotland politics sings its same auld sang, with full overbearing chorus from the Nats. For nature of the political discourse of our present representatives, check out this by the Flying Rodent:-

Good Morning The People Of Scotland

Presenter:  …Derek McSmug is the SNP spokesperson for Really Complaining About Things.  Derek, thanks for joining us on the show.

Derek McSmug:  Thank you, Gary.

Presenter:  Derek, you said yesterday that a second Scottish independence referendum is “terrifyingly inevitable”.  Does your party intend to bring forward plans for another referendum in the near future?

Derek McSmug:  Well Gary, I think it’s no secret that we’re in favour of Scottish independence!  (Laughs)  But no, we have no plans to hold a second referendum in the foreseeable future.  We’re focusing on standing up for the people of Scotland against the Tories’ swingeing cuts to public services, which the Labour Party is fully –

Presenter:  Well, if you’re focusing on standing up to the Tories, why do you keep talking about a second referendum?  Why not move past that and focus on your work at Westminster, or on governing here in Scotland?

Derek McSmug:  Frankly Gary, I’m shocked and disappointed that you’ve said that.  You know that it’s for the people of Scotland to decide whether there should be a second referendum and I don’t think it’s for the media to tell the people of Scotland that they mustn’t discuss their constitutional future.

Presenter:  With respect Derek, it’s you that keeps talking up a referendum, not the people of Scotland.

Read the rest. It’s brilliant. Also good comments underneath.

    Remind me again, what is Labour’s position on Trident.
    Does Jeremy plan to get rid of it?

    • Glasgow Working Class said,

      I do not speak for anyone but myself and would keep Trident. THE WEAK MINDED who do not read history are a problem that may get us into another war.

      • Political tourist said,

        Right winger wants to keep and pay for Nukes.
        Surprise surprise, as the late Cilla Black would say.

    PURVIS FROM 1200.

    • Steven Johnston said,

      My ancestors were Roman soldiers, tasked with helping to build Hadrian’s wall. Unfortunately, they were pretty thick and build it on the “wrong” side, so ended up staying in Scotland. So I’m Scottish from the 2nd century

      • Political tourist said,

        Hadrian’s Wall is in entirely in England.
        Climb over both ways and your still in England.

      • caseypurvis said,

        YOU WILL HAVE TO PASS A SCREENING TEST. ANY FRIEND OR RELATIVES WHO CAN VOUCH FOR YOU
        WILL CASEY PURVIS

  3. Steven Johnston said,

    It’s a joke, not meant to be taken seriously.

    • Political tourist said,

      Like the thread itself, borderline racist.

      • caseypurvis said,

        LOVE RACIST—BARELY TOLERATE IRISH [PART IRISH]
        PC IS AN ILLNESS. BUNCH OF MORONS WHO WOULD WISH TO TELL ME WHAT I CAN SAY
        WILL CASEY PURVIS

      • Steven Johnston said,

        You sound like a man who takes a jokes too seriously, or indeed seriously. Those SWP meetings must be a riot. What are/aren’t you allowed (this week) to joke about with them?

  4. Glasgow Working Class said,

    I think Cumbria and Carlise were once part of Scotland!

    • Steven Johnston said,

      If you have to explain a joke…

    • pinkie said,

      i think Corby once was a part of Scotland.

      • Steven Johnston said,

        If there is a nationalised industry, they will want to work there.

      • pinkie said,

        And…. if you have to explain a joke.

      • caseypurvis said,

        cumbria is in calif.. great place
        what was the joke?

  5. Steven Johnston said,

    • Glasgow Working Class said,

      If you visit Carlisle Castle you will note it was part of Scotland.
