Are you really saying it is in SNP rules that you can't criticise them on arrse? Show me.
If said Arrser happens to be a member of the SNP, then yes!

Alright, since it is polite to assume you are not being asinine for the sake of it, the point was that the SNP has set up their internal rules that once they have decided something then that becomes sacrosanct and cannot be criticised or contested by the faithful, which not just applies to the membership but by extension to the cult followers.

So, not directly about ARRSE but extends to it by implication.

And what happened to those 21 Conservative MPs who publically disagreed last year?

And the game of whataboutery continues.

Not at all,

This has been discussed many times over the years and many examples given where discussion and debates are held by various bodies than once a result is obtained that then becomes the policy that is publically supported by all.
Can give many examples from when I was a Non Exec Director of a Health Board, no matter what our opinions were we were expected to support the overall decision of teh Board and no public disagreement was allowed.
Many organisations are the same.

It seems that Kate Forbes might actually be better at sumz than the Tory's rising start Rishi Sunak after all, despite all the bluster from camp Bluffer.


But the Scottish Government won’t, as I initially presumed, get extra funding as a result of the Green Homes Grant or the full £40 million it would if all of the money for traineeships and so on were new. Instead, apart from the stamp duty money, it will receive £21 million – the figure quoted by the Scottish Finance Minister – as a result of the combination of the ‘Plan for Jobs’ and the reductions in investment spending elsewhere that the Treasury is now expecting.

Today Boris Grrr held a Press briefing, the day that Nicola decided to reduce the number of briefings and did not hold one :)

Also Boris Grrr said he hoped/guessed that the country would return to normal in November, just in time for Christmas. Now, this puts St Nicola (pbuh) in a quandary. Does she do her normal and just follow Boris Grrr a couple of weeks later saying Scotland will be 'normal' again in December; or say Scotland is better than England so will return to normal in October? Should be fun!!!!!! :)

Hope she specifically orders all toy stores, pigs n' blankets, turkey, drink, fags, trifles, xmas trees & deccies, cards, and crackers, candles, Slade, carol singing,, childrens school parties, pantos and any yuletide tat to be banned plus mandatory jail for non household family visits.
That'd be the best Crimble ever eh?
Harrumph.
