Losing the will to live

I belatedly watched the #scotdebates on STV tonight…..and my conclusion and summary of it are as follows: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

I was getting so bored I was dozing off.

What I did manage to glean out of it was this:

Willie Rennie: was as usual totally unconvincing, but that is the state LibDems have been for a long while now…They are just not at all convincing, and It is hard to believe them on anything.

Ruth Davidson: Typical Tory fest, with the added news that they would benefit the Rich, with Tax cuts, while Indirectly taxing everyone else to pay for it. Graduate tuition fees of £6,000 and £8 prescription charge

Kezia Dugdale: still doesn’t understand Labours own tax policy, but Labour would make everyone Including pensioners pay more tax, but unlike the Lib Dems who also want to raise tax, Labour can’t decide all that they want to spend it on.
That plus having a rammy fest every time Nicola Sturgeon spoke….She is good at shouting loudly and Interrupting for no good purpose, other than to stop people hearing what Nicola has to say.

Nicola Sturgeon: a reasonable performance, but no more than that, no more than that was required. she basically highlighted that the SNP would continue with it’s softly softly cautious approach. Though she did confirm that Indy2 would be spoken about in the manifesto.

Patrick Harvey: The usual common sense approach  from him, although the Greens too would be wanting to raise tax levels much higher than the others, but focusing on the high earners, and reducing low earner tax

On Indy2…the usual suspects came out with their once in a generation/lifetime referendum. However Nicola pointed out that it would only occur if there was a sustained will of the Scottish people for it.
Kezia said Labour would still vote NO, and she didn’t regret them being the Tory bedfellows in it. She further more stated that Labour would still vote against, even if there was a settled will of the Scottish people proven to want it. In effect honestly confirming that Labour put their own interests first and to hell with what the people think.

Stuff what the people vote for

That’s all I can be bothered with… Goodnight ZZZZZZZZZZ

I am not a member of any political party. I am however a strong supporter of Scots Independence. Any views which I express in this Blog are purely my own. This Blog intends to be a place where I will be putting my views on Scots Independence. It will primarily concern itself with the upcoming Referendum In Scotland. However It will also be somewhat diverse in the range of day to day issues which are evident to me in modern day Scotland. Not all of it will be political, and indeed may take me off into avenues I am not even aware of yet. Please come and join in on this journey, and any comments are welcome provided they are not abusive! All the best from a new acquaintance! Rod

  1. You thought it better than I did,I switched to the football and watched what is becoming the normal Scottish game one goal in it.Well back to the shouting show I just concluded that the unionist parties left good manners at the door,the took ill manners to critical.Nicola was competent,but why wont she just say “once in a lifetime” was a turn of phrase and not signed up to on any deal.

    • Very Good question Charles.
      It would be very easy for her to say that…I am sure that it was Alex Salmond that came up with that phrase, and did he not say once in a generation? A generation being somewhat less than a lifetime.

    Actually, watching Nicola Sturgeon whilst Dugdale was disrespecting what would be the will of the people, I get the feeling that NS thinks the best way to deal with Labour is just to keep quiet and let Kezia’s jumbled thoughts tumble forth. All the easier then to hear the sound of silence when the audience fail to be impressed as Kezia’s chances accelerate towards oblivion.
