Last year Labours Scottish Secretary, Matgaret Curran, wished Alex Salmond dead, or at least welcomed the prospect of a messy ending for him, when she said the following in an interview with the Holyrood Magazine, that she wouldn’t look for the perpetrator if Alex Salmond got run over by a Bus.
“I think if Alex Salmond went under a bus tomorrow – not that I would ask who drove that bus”
This week as reported in the Daily Express, a private Labour group page, frequented by Labours Scottish Leadership, wished that Alex’s 90 year old father would die!
We are perfectly used to Labour politicians, unionist commentators and journalists, BBC presenters like Paxman, and any number of cyberfuds using all sorts of insulting terminology to describe Alex,using references to his size and weight, to comparing him to the worst dictators, despots and tyrants in history, from Genghis Khan through to Mugabe, Hitler and Saddam Hussein.
But these Death Wishes of himself and his 90 year old father is beyond despicable, even by Labours gutter standards.
They collectively have really lost the plot, and are so caught up in their own poisonous hatred of Alex and the SNP and by extension all Nationalists, that they are incapable of forming any form of coherent strategy, or rational thinking.
So caught up are they in their visceral poisonous loathing, that they cannot formulate any form of progressive politics, and are losing both supporters and respect faster than Usain Bolt running from a rampaging rhino.
Worse still, they have so long lost all the Ideals they ever had, that the election fodder they once counted on to give them their position of privilege in our communities, and in Westminster, have finally started to see them for the chancers they are.
Scots are not known to be particularly dim,but even the most slow witted amongst us, are wakening up. The cost of Labours behaviour is equivalent of having a Death Wish, and given how horrendously badly and disgracefully they have behaved, they can have nobody else but themselves to blame if they finally succeed in their parties collective suicide pact.
Although I am not aligned to any party, I would wish that all those who believe in Independence, this week firstly vote SNP, then Scottish Green,and any other Independence supporting parties in the Council elections, and to spread widely this latest disgraceful episode of Labours behaviour to all and sundry.
Let them have their Death Wish, not of Alex Salmond or his father, but a Death Wish of their whole scandalous self serving party and odious individuals out of our local councils.
As you would build a house from the foundations up, we need to do likewise with our country, and the 3rd of May is our opportunity to lay the groundwork for it.
UPDATE: For the avoidance of any doubt…The Labour Facebook Group page” Scottish Labour for Scotland” , where the disgusting Death Wish for Alex Salmonds father took place, is no ordinary facebook group page for ordinary people. While it is Closed and Private, Its membership list is freely available, and it is stacked with the Leadership of the Labour party in Scotland…Lamont,Sarwar and Baillie, Labour MPs, Msps, SPADS, Labour associations, Trade Union Branch Secretaries, University and College Lecturers and Labour activists and Labour Councillors and prospective councillors, and past Msps who lost their seat at the Holyrood election.
The fact that such comments were made without sanction, and without condemnation in such a page, only serves to prove how low Labour have become.
But don’t just take my word for its membership, see for yourself!
