The Tory slide cannot be stopped by men like these

The Herald today

Douglas Ross and Alister Jack, the select, do what they can to reverse the slide since the high point of 26% against the SNP’s 46% in December 2019.

ALISTER JACK BORDERS ON THE RIDICULOUS

  1. One thing that humours me… a from DRoss today:

    “Nicola Sturgeon and her party want to separate Scotland from the rest of the United Kingdom”

    They say this as if we don’t know that already?!?! They’re just talking to their narrow base, feart that if they don’t show up they’ll bump down even further.

  2. You feel ashamed for Scotland when DRossy and Hi Jack are the best the opposition can put up. + Leotard and Wee Wullie McDumplin’s.

    Scotland’s Shame!—No wonder Boris wants them “Exterminated”!

  3. We can see Sky news and the BBC are allowing Boris to alter his narrative over “devolution…a mistake”, and pretend he said something else entirely.
    And you though history was only rewritten in Russia?
    Disgraceful!

    1. That really is gas lighting. The teachers and the Herald could learn from that, what gas lighting actually means. In this case the media are gas lighting a whole country, 5 million people.

  4. DRoss can’t ‘help’ himself can he. The Tories as we know are always ‘helping people’ DRoss! Helping them into poverty, destitution, and in some ways, helping them into their graves with Tory austerity, their Covid19 herd immunity tactics, then their utter shambolic handling of the whole crisis and handing contracts for £millions to their pals to take the absolute p**s out of the’ people’.
    DRoss your party are ‘helping people’, but it only extends to themselves, their dodgy pals and anyone who gives them money. They despise the poor and DRoss is being paid, how much? What is his job exactly? Who pays him?
