I was out at Smoky-Drinky earlier. Grandfather of Stolen Child (stolen by a Scottish council, by the way) has just been rated zero points for disability, ie he is classed as fit for work. Also, the council have decided now to cut his council tax relief. He is short one finger and has serious arthritis, he has two lots of surgery booked on his hands, he put a DVD in the machine and had to crawl back to a chair to get upright, and he is not classed as disabled. He is expected to get a job.
I have been trying to find a menial part-time job for about a year with no luck and I can get up on my own, I have all the fingers I started with and mine all move. I also have many, many more qualifications. He has no chance of a job. None.
We are talking about a lifelong SNP supporter, in fact a whole (large) family of SNP supporters, some of whom heard a few things tonight that might change their minds. Independence is the key to the SNP success in Scotland but independence is not what they are offering.
What is on offer is a switch from ‘slaves to England’ to ‘slaves to the Salmond Collective and his EU bosses’. Once that is explained, SNP support wavers. I hope the message spreads, and fast, because Salmond is following the Hitler agenda of racial improvement and Green control, just like the EU and Wastemonster. He is no different, the SNP is no different, it’s all a con.
So, Oily Al, I dented your support base earlier tonight. Again. Another little chip at your edifice. It’s not a chip you’ll notice but every one of them adds up. Like rust getting into a stone chip on a car, it will spread beneath the surface until it erupts into a huge and unsightly lump.
The SNP hate me, and all those like me. They have made their feelings plain. All other main parties have done the same.
All they are getting back is what they have given out. Is that in any way unfair, do you think?
