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.
