Well the Scottish parliament has certainly turned into a puppet show come pantomime these days.
Before First Ministers Questions today, we had a bit of afters to take care of from yesterday.
For those that missed that little puppet show, what had happened was that when Tricia Marwick, the presiding officer of the Scottish parliament had tried to get the children to behave, by shouting Order, Michael McMahon the Labour MSP had retorted back at her, “You’re out of Order!”
“Who said that?” says Ms Marwick…much shuffling about on the Labour benches..sly looks straight at McMahon…” Was that you, Michael McMahon? withdraw that comment now, and apologise!” McMahon mutters something under hois breath, aye aw right, I apologise… See me after class!, say Ms Marwick.
And so before First Ministers questions today, we had an announcement from Ms Marwick the presiding officer, that Michael McMahon had been suspended from school for the day.
There was much twittering done by Michaels Labour pals and some of their tame press, that poor Michael had been hard done by..that Ms Marwick should just have let McMahons little tantrum go…after all, this is Labour, and bad behaviour is only to be expected.
And so onto the real business of the day…Ms Lamont casting the First Eck as the Villain as usual…And this time saying that he was Pinocchio..Unable to to tell the truth, nothing he says is believable..you know the script… she was still banging on and on an on about Russell and the Colleges…Nothing else has happened in Scotland for the last couple of weeks you know.
His First Eckness had just about enough of this mob, busy calling a liar for weeks on end….and in one swift move..He turned into Mr Punch…..He laid in about Judy Lamont, with some very nasty facts!!
How come…for all the Lies, for all the mistakes, for all the disasters that Lamont and her buddies get up to, no matter how often they are caught out, they never ever apologise, they never ever come clean, and they certainly never does what his eckness does if he quotes something wrong, and immediately come back, and admit the error and apologise…For Lamont and her cronies..nah nah, never done.. She may mislead parliament all over the place with dodgy figures, but never own up to them. Strange thing his Eckness didn’t mention the totally fabricated rape case,with the non existent victim, which Lamont had been caught out with before, and never apologised for..but maybe he didn’t want he splattered all over the good carpet.
Next up…Ms Marwick for the second week is succession calls on Ruth Lamont to speak….Ooops…mixing up Ruth Davidson and Joanne Lamont again! I can see how its easy done though.
Again …in yet another obviously pre arranged coordinated attack with her Better Together labour chums..Ruthy bangs on about His Eckness again getting his figures wrong..and asks his to explain them properly this time….ONLY….would you believe it….Ruthy drops the Ba…For goodness sakes ya numpty, you can almost hear JOLA screaming… Does Ruthy not make the classic clanger of misquoting her own figures,,and immediately having to correct them!! The SNP Benches were rolling about the floor laughing their arses off.. or ROFLTAO for you joy of Text fanatics.
whats more ..says his Eckness to Ruthy baby..See all those courses you said last week were no longer available…Well I checked..and guess what..they are ALL available…and goes on to list all the colleges that do these courses, which Ruthy says are no more..because she said that his Big Bad Eckeness and Baron Russell (He’s Behind Him!) (Oh No he’s not, oh aye he is!!) had been busy taking the weans sweeties away again.
Oh help…side splitting stuff..No more please!!
If JoLa and Ruthy baby, were going to team up, and try and to accuse his eckness of not getting his facts right,or bein all Pinocchio, and talking Jackanory, you would have thought that they could at least have not left themselves wide open to being made to look utter idiots…But Hey…They just go to prove that they can mess up even better together..
As a post note: There was a brief interlude by Wee Willie Winkie Rennie, before he fell asleep again.zzzzz
Tick Tock, Tick Tock……Oooh Time up ..and time for crocodile tears.
