Well said. And the fact he is a Jock must sting even more.

Although as a certain Mod once told us, that may be because he is an Uncle Tom.

Is there a Jockanese version of the term coconut?
As already pointed out “quisling” (oh god the irony) is used but also “traitor”, “lickspittle” and “Yoon” (which is Pete Wishart’s greatest (some would say only) contribution to the independence debate).

To think the term Tory was used in the colonies to describe those loyal to the crown while those seeking independence were called Rebels

So who actually paid for Turnberry?
No such problems up here as SNP have blocked building of yet another golf course in East Sutherland

 
I've heard some Political guff in my time, but this is brilliant.

Lord Turnbull

People under the age of 25 should not be jailed because their brains are not fully mature, new draft guidelines say.

In that case, lets ban under 25's from:

  • The Political sphere, in all capacities
  • Voting
  • Getting married
  • Having babies
  • Joining the Armed Forces
  • Joining any other Front Line Service.
  • Feel free to add to the list.
Keep them all in Skool, by the time they are 25 they might be edumacated and it will do wonders for unemployment levels

Seems the distance does indeed make the heart grow fonder, fair play to her she escapes the snake pit of Hollyrood
Typical Wicker, not realising that there is more to Caithness and Sutherland than just the towns!
 
Scotland hasn't given Sturgeon to the World, they just imposed her on themselves!
If only that were true, then we wouldn’t have to keep seeing her breathing fire brimstone and cobblers on TV

She kinda forces herself on the rest of the world by going outside her remit time and again to spend taxpayers money travelling to other countries to spout her shite at them.

She's taken that on her own back, Scotland never sent her. Most of what she goes abroad for she has no responsibility for nor the remotest remit but we still pick up the bill while she whittles away what goodwill Scotland still has left across the World, and at home.
 
Ouch....
 
Never heard of him but reading his twitter he seems interesting. Does free legal work for people but I don't understand some of his stands. On the one hand he says that more needs to be done for the homeless and more money for foodbanks. On the other he is keen for more refugees, c'mon away in. No thought of cutting your cloth.

He has been telegraphing his dissatisfaction with the committee for a while. One in particular was about bringing spending back up to previous levels on druggies refuges, which the committee rejected. Yet the chairman (woman) of the committee is blaming the evil Tories and if only they had independence they could sort it hhhhmmmm!

Loved the idea that under 25's brains are not sufficiently mature to be able to be jailed. Which party was saying that 16 year olds should be able to vote? Which party does Mhairi Black (MP at 21) belong to? She said she had big problems adapting to the HoC and Londonistan, looks to me like she would have a problem sitting down at a table and eating her dinner off a plate with a knife and fork.
