She may not make the best political leader, she may not be able to read a script without tripping over its words, she may not even posses the debating skills of a 5 year old, but suddenly a new career opens up in front of Johann Lamont over night. She has suddenly developed a rather unfortunate skill of fortune telling.
So let us watch on as she plied this new trade in the Holyrood circus at First Ministers question time.
Enter Wee Eck as she called him….Sit doon right there Wee Eck she says, with all the the authority of a grannie telling the wean to sit doon for his tea.
Now lets see whit you have got in your hand…C’mon..Open it up!
Aha…Whats this I see? Oh deary me ..tut tut tut….you have been oot playing with those bad Boys Trump and Murdoch again…and you’ve been getting a bruising for it! Whit dae ye mean by saying, ye should see the state o them?
Did you or did you no, try to wangle some jobs off that Murdoch? You did?? Whit ever for? Ah telt you afore…just because my Uncles Tony and Gordy were up tae their necks in shady deals with him, and Tony became his weans God father, and Gordy was awe chummy with him until the wee Aussie turncoat went and supported the other mob, disnae mean that you can go behind my back and start trying for jobs!!
Did you not know that ma Uncle Gordy declared war on him for no supporting ma family any more?
And whats this I see from yer other haun….Ye went and telt Trump, to Trump where he likes, that he could shut up or bog off because you were wanting to grow a wind mill economy. Wee Jack promised him …Nae Windmills, ye cannae go back on whit Wee Jack said, its no right!
And ye even spoke about that rascal Fred the Shred once, afore he got his come uppance, explain that! Whit do you mean you impertinent whippersnapper? You didnae have nuthin to dae wi him and that it was Wee Jack that nominated him for a gong, and Gordy who had him knighted and advising his bankers……Ahh humph ..forget that wan.
Ah will tell ya this Wee Eck….I forsee you have a nasty ability to attract bad millionaires….You shud stay away from them, they are not all nice sensitive souls like Edwin or ordinary folks like the lottery winners…Ah and ma family are the ones who have the only right to talk to millionaires and have them in oor party..Well the others can too I suppose, but no you..dae ye hear?? Ye will only attract more of them!!!
Noo get oot of ma sight this instance!
But michty me…..whit happened next….
Only today was it announced that Lord Sarwars millionaire brother, and Anas Sarwar the deputy Scotish leader of the Labour parties uncle, had only gone and left them for Wee Eck.
Gypsy Jo……Your Fortune awaits you!
UPDATE: Given that Lord Sarwar’s brother has ceased to support Labour, and is instead supporting the SNP, one would have thought this to be a rather remarkable story..Particularly with his comments about how Labour have run Glasgow Council, as we approach the Council elections next week.( As witnessed by his comments below and in the Herald article). Yet BBC Not Reporting Scotland have not even had a whisper to say about it.
What does that tell you?
“Mr Ramzan said: “I am delighted to be supporting the SNP at this year’s local elections on May 3. I have been a businessman in Glasgow for over 35 years and I have always wanted what is best for the city.
“Unfortunately, under the current Labour administration the city has not moved forward, there is a lack of ideas and innovation, and they now spend more time squabbling among themselves than trying to help ordinary Glaswegians.
“That is why I will be supporting real change under the SNP.”
