Was it not the British Labour Party's Scottish branch who built Hollyrood under Dewar? So not the SNP.Or nicking money
Or buying up houses in a suspicious manner
Or fiddling expenses
Or sent pervy texts to women
Or committed Perjury
Or committing Arson
Or knocking their wives about
Or being a weeny bit racist
Or building a monstrosity of a Parliament building 10 times costlier than the original cost estimate
For such a small party their punching well above their weight in criminality and integrity issues
Did I mention the dodgy shipbuilding scandal that's cost £220m+ to date, still yet to be delivered, that has SNP fingerprints all over it?
With Derek Mackay resigning in disgrace from government and his suspension from the party "effective immediately", the man once touted as a potential leader of the SNP instead joins the list of Holyrood scandals.www.thecourier.co.uk
Is that why the SNP are running a MINORITY government and have to give way to the Greens to get their budget passed?If only the Scottish electorate agreed with you. I often wonder why unionists vote SNP. Perhaps they don’t want to pay bedroom tax, prescription charges, bridge tolls, hospital car park charges etc.. I often wonder why English people put up with this shit but then I realise that they ******* love the price the price they have to pay for keeping the Jocks they like. The skirt wearing ugly fat alcoholic junkie freckled Buckfast drinking bagpipe playing English hating *******.
The Additional Member System ensured that*:It's certainly why they received more votes than any other party and have more MSPs.
Because more people preferred them, just so we're clear.
Of course they voted for the SNP, Labour were previously the party of choice in Scotland when it came to moaning how hard done by they all are and how they need more English money. The SNP has merely taken over that position.The one where Scots voted Yes and non Scots didn’t? Nope. Didn’t miss that. Did you notice how the SNP didn’t go away and I’m straight increased their popularity straight after? Weird eh? It’s as if the electorate in Scotland just aren’t listening to learned people such as yourself. I’m looking forward to hearing from folk here who can tell me how wrong I am and backing it up. Unfortunately all Im seeing so far is references to Jimmy Krankie etc.
Well according the Brain of Scotland @Dek Finlay, the will pay for it in bottle tops cos there’re rich!You're all being very cruel to the inarticulate illiterate screamers of "FREEEEEEEDOM".
Scotland is in a financially sound position in the event of independence, and can even have a budget surplus, thus delivering high quality healthcare and other benefits to its citizens...
...provided the price of oil remains over US$110 per barrel.
Brent crude was trading at US$31.91 this morning. As the price and production war between Russia and Saudi rumbles on, and demand collapses in Europe, Africa and the Americas, and more and more renewable projects come on line and technology advances, the price of oil is expected to reach US$15 per barrel. And will stay there.
Nearly all the world's storage sites for oil are full: oil companies have rented every single ship in the world capable of storing any decent quantity of oil and these ships are just sitting there, waiting for a buyer, and around the world the oil refineries are operating at a fraction of their normal output. Air travel is down by 95% in the Americas, similar in Europe. Cars aren't being driven.
Brent crude costs between US$30 and US$45 per barrel to get it from undersea to a refinery (Saudi oil costs US$2, American shale oil between US$9-15).
So how will the haggis stabbers pay for the +550,000 mouths sucking from the teat of public sector employment? All those people, nearly all voting SNP: how will they react when they're sacked, or how will the remaining 3,425,800 members of the electorate react when taxes go up through the roof to pay for the SNPs corruption and stupidity?
to be fair to you, the majority of scottish labour voters switched their arcs to stupidly vote SNP - socialism, including national socialist is something people were literarly bred to believe in until last years GE election finally forced so many people in the North of England to choose between the guaranteed total destruction of the UK and its economy (Jeremy Corbyn) and the least worse option that wouldnt result in anti-semite, anti-british, inumerate imbeciles being in charge - scottish people are a bit more stubborn but to be fair again we need a charasmatic opposition leader to capture the peoples imagination to turn them away from Queen Nicolas party of thieves, liars, nonces and incompetents - wee ruthie was doing well until she lost the plot on wokeness and not supporting Brexit but her absense has left a gaping vacuum of someone people can smile and laugh along withYou're probably right. I'm confusing my useless left-wing authorities in Scotland
They'll blame the English even though they have left the union.So how will the haggis stabbers pay for the +550,000 mouths sucking from the teat of public sector employment?

The Constituency votes are decided by FPTP and they received 46% of votes cast. That was more than twice the votes received by either Labour or Conservatives.The Additional Member System ensured that*:
Presumably they'll just blame it on Thatcher, Brexit, Coronavirus and Tory austerity and carry on joggingThe +550,000 mouths sucking from the teat of public sector employment?

Indeed and it's a fair argument that independence is a popular concept North of the border, personally if the Independence referendum had gone the other way I'd have seen it as a shame, but the will of the people and fair do's.The Constituency votes are decided by FPTP and they received 46% of votes cast. That was more than twice the votes received by either Labour or Conservatives.
By whatever measure that has a grounding in reality, they can hardly be said to be disfavoured by the Scottish electorate.
