Oily Al is a clever little fat boy.
His referendum for Scottish independence failed. Only by a little bit, but it failed. He then instigated plan B. Oh yes, he did indeed have a plan B.
Plan B involves Oily Al becoming an MP in Wastemonster. He’s been one before and he’s pretty much a shoe-in to do it again considering he’s chosen to do it in a constituency that is pretty much all kilts and whisky.. The plan also requires a huge SNP victory in Scotland, ousting all those Labour and Lib Dem useless articles. That part of the plan is well under way and is working perfectly. I, for one, will not miss a single one of the ousted MPs although I doubt their replacements will be noiticeably different.
The SNP will get as many votes in England as the ‘No More Beer’ party would get in Wales but that doesn’t matter. He doesn’t need or want to take control of the UK Parliament. He doesn’t even, really, need to enter a coagulation with the Ed Miller Band. He needs no real power at all. He and his SNP MPs just need to be there.
It cannot have escaped his notice that the English have progressed from ‘a bit miffed’ to ‘quite chagrined’ at the idea of Scottish MPs voting on English matters, while English MPs have no say on matters of the sporran. Rubbing that open sore with salty double-figures of MPs who are members of a purely Scottish party will do the trick – and here’s the trick.
The Scots did not vote for independence from the UK but the English are more than ready to do it for them. All it takes is one little push and having even less than 5% of Wastemonster seats occupied by Scottish Nationalists will pretty much force a referendum, no matter who is in charge.
Take England out of the mix and the entire UK falls apart. Wales and Norn Iron will not remain in a rest-of-UK with Scotland because they’ll argue about who should be in charge. Take England out and the UK is gone. Four countries.
Scotland gets independence by being thrown out rather than by escaping. The end result is the same. For them. But that is all Oily Al and the Spiteful Nannying Party ever wanted. It was their principal aim from the outset. Independence was their original reason for existing at all.
Interesting that they villify UKIP for wanting almost exactly the same thing…
The real genius in this was handing over to the utterly insane Nicola Sturgeon (the caviar socialist) who will provide plenty of soundbite distractions to keep the dopey press happy.
If Oily Al can’t get Scotland to vote for independence from the UK then he’ll get it thrown out of the UK.
I wonder if that is, secretly, the Cameroid’s plan regarding the EU? No, that would credit him with far too much intelligence.
Meanwhile Ed Moribund thinks that promising to give the vote to 16-year-olds will be a vote-winner even though those he’s making his promise to can’t vote. The stupidity epidemic continues to devastate the party that once represented the working class but now no longer remembers who they are.
I would vote SNP just to see the spanner grind in the works but the SNP hate smokers and drinkers and I am both. I cannot vote for a party that hates me.
The one flaw in Oily Al’s plan is Nicky. She is so eccentric that she could well lose all those projected SNP gains and leave Al on his own in a corner of the green benches.
Scotland has lived under a woman Prime Monster before. They didn’t like that, not at all. This new one is starting to look worse.
In other news, parents made it home safely which is good since if the promised horrible weather arrives tomorrow they wouldn’t have been flying anywhere.
I am tired and tipsy. Tomorrow I don’t have to get up early and also work late. Just work late.
Normal service is at least on the horizon if not imminent.
