That will not/cannot happen, ever. We are left, I'm afraid, with the least bad/worse of the bunch (old or new) to choose from, in order to be controlled in our mundane existence, I honestly don't believe there is, or ever will be, an escape from this situation.The biggest problem we have in Scotland is that the oposition to the SNP are totally disorganised, underfunded and working seperately without any co-ordination or cohesion.
Sturgeon is undoubtedly a liar, cheat and fundamentally incompetent whose ego surpasses that of her mentor. Salmond is an able but nasty little man with a colossal ego determined that the temple will come down if he is not allowed to be the Messiah. It is working because it is the only possible opportunity for the opposition in Scotland to do any damage and is fantastic fun and mischief for the press. In reality it is an item of absolutely no interest or significance to any sane and sensible person who leads the SNP. The only thing of interest is how to get them out of power.
Having said all that, it is interesting is it not, and we are all guilty, that we are enraged by the transgressions, be they ever so minor, of those of whom we do not approve but effortlessly rationalise and forgive those, be they ever so major, of whom we do. My working assumption is that almost all politicians are lying to us almost all of the time but where the line lies with which you are prepared to live is how we all kid ourselves. I do not believe that there is a member of the Westminster cabinet that has not broken the ministerial code, some of them are repeat offenders and most of the offences are self-evident and documented. If you think they are doing an adequate job you will not care or consider them anything out of the ordinary. If you are not happy with their efforts in office you will be incensed that they are getting away with it and there is ‘One rule for them and quite another for us’.
Life continues to remain unfair. Now that is a reliable fact!! Hallelujah!
So - does the whole system, Westminster and Holyrood need a thorough weeding out and the current incumbents replaced by people with integrity and at least some semblance of honesty?
