I despair..I really do!!
I have been complaining loudly about the incompetence of the Labour and Conservative opposition in the Scottish parliament for some time, their abuse and name calling,which they laughingly call debate.
But, it seems my complaints are falling on deaf ears.
But, just as I thought they surely couldn’t get much worse, they go into silly season overdrive.
Johann Lamont, Leader of the Scottish branch of the Labour party, today at First Ministers Question time actually came out with the following question, when she asked the First Minister:
“What will the weather be like in an Independent Scotland?”
You coulnae make this stuff up!!
So..I thought I would have a bash at the following:
Coming to you today, all the way from Holyrood.. The Scottish Weather Forecast and news report
The weather forecast for 2016 will bring a depression coming from the South, caused by a weather system which has caused untold panic at the structural financial damage caused in the district of Westminster in the neighbouring rUK. There have been reports of Scottish liberal and labour politicians having been made homeless in the area.We also are hearing reports up here in a remarkably balmy Scotland, that these political refugees are seeking shelter North of the border. Meanwhile their counterparts in Scotland say they are exceedingly reluctant to give them house room. Seemingly they carry some virus from being exposed to an alien parent body for too long.
Further reports also tell us, that a number of Lordly ladies and gentlemen have instead refused to move,and are barricading themselves in for the long stay at Old Folks home in Westminster.
It is uncertain at this time,as to how many are still alive, as a number of them have been sleeping on benches in the establishment for many years,and show little or any sign of life.
The ones who still seem to be active, if somewhat demented, are all saying that they cannot leave, for they have no other place to go to, and having departed their original homeland generations ago, say they are completely unwilling to travel back to a country they no longer recognise or call home. Indeed, there is no Old Folks home for them to transfer to, even if they so desired to relocate.
Although the weather in Scotland is showing a warmth it has previously been unaccustomed to..The Southerly depression will peter out long before it can cause any needless concern here.
Warm fronts are coming in from all areas of the world, some even coming from Arctic regions.
Wind and rain however, is as usual, taken as a matter of course, so we can expect some areas of turbulence in our weather,but long term forecasts for the future remain positive.
Of course the wind and tides will always be welcome to our fledgling but increasingly successful non nuclear power generation and green energy.
The economic forecast is also welcoming, in that it predicts steady growth and sustained stability and further good will towards Scotland as we progress forwards re-establishing our old trading connections,and welcoming new ones.
The future may be bright, but it is not Orange, it’s Scottish.
