Cat fighting among the porridge wogs

One of Nicola Sturgeon’s handpicked Brexit advisers has poured cold water on her proposals to keep Scotland in the EU single market even if the UK leaves, only hours before she unveils them on Tuesday morning.

Charles Grant, who sits on the First Minister’s Standing Council on Europe, said it was “extremely difficult” to see how her plans were legally, politically or technically feasible.

  1. If they have even one sane person who has survived to rise to the top, it means they are a bigger threat than I thought.

  2. Let the worlds 43rd richest economy cut off its nose to spite its face, by tying itself to a moribund market while ignoring its largest.
    Nicola, if you really want independence, let England vote. We won’t hesitate to cut you loose, and won’t bottle unlike your countrymen.

  3. She’s full of pish. This is just wee Lego Heid making tartan noises for domestic consumption. She knows she has no competence to be setting international trade policy, and also that she can’t call a referendum unilaterally. Far from empowering her, Brexit has greatly diminished her influence. Five years from now I can see the SNP still being the dominant force in Scottish politics, but a long way down from its current hegemony.

  4. It doesn’t matter a jot whether what she says makes any sense or not.

    It keeps the sense of grievance to the fore (as if they needed any help with that!) and continues to drive splits and resentments – and those are the real objectives.

    As a resident of Scotland, I have to say that although the demented porridge wogs of the SNP are a bit one sided as far as Independence goes, they are getting sick and tired of the flow of idiocy rising forth from the mouth of the First Minister.

    Unless she can turn the tide on Independence for Scotland (certainly a majority of the Scots don’t want it), I doubt that even the demented porridge wogs of the SNP will put up with her for much longer. There are less screechy and more amenable members of the SNP who would be happy to oblige and have no problems wielding the knife.

    Ta Ta Nicola. You’ve been a right pain in the arse.

  6. Isn’t this just all front to make the rest of the UK give Scotland more money, nothing but a shakedown scam

  7. John Galt – “There are less screechy and more amenable members of the SNP who would be happy to oblige and have no problems wielding the knife.”

    The problem is that the Scottish Parliament is a local council with delusions of grandeur. And limited tax raising powers. Even in the mundane local council-type things the Scottish Parliament can do, they do not do well. They also depend on the British to give them more money than they are entitled to.

    Which means the Scotch government has a problem. They need to distract the voters from their inability to deliver anything. Threaten the English with leaving. Demand more English cash to stay. Hand it out to your ex-boyfriend’s new company. Simple. Which means attention-seeking demented screechiness is pretty much what the job calls for.

    Think of Nicola as the ex-girlfriend with borderline personality disorder. If she wasn’t outside your apartment at 2 in the morning demanding to be let in, would you speak to her at all?
