It’s Neil Mackay again! I know, leave ‘im ee’s not warf it!
Oh OK, just one more time? I’m completely aff the Scotsman now so I need to chew on something.
THERE’S one of the SNP top brass I’m friendly with, and not so long ago they brought the MP Joanna Cherry up in conversation apropos of nothing. She must have been playing on their mind. “It’s all about Joanna,” they said – with an acid-drop hiss which made clear they wouldn’t be inviting their party colleague around for Sunday afternoon tea any time soon. Cherry, they felt, is too fond of the limelight and her ambition is damaging and distracting the party. My acquaintance is a big noise in the SNP – one of the party’s most prominent politicians and a close pal to Nicola Sturgeon.
Sounds like an imaginary friend there and if there is one of the ‘SNP top brass’ who is such a sad ‘Johnny-no-pals’ as to have befriended a Herald journo, he’ll be breaking-off toot suit after reading that.
Do the rest of us care that much about these twitterspats between one or two leading members? I don’t. I have my eye firmly fixed on the big target and, crucially, I can still see clearly that only the SNP can get us out of this mess – the Union.
Opinion poll after opinion poll tells us that 99% of the electorate is not paying a blind bit of attention to the commentariat gossip.
As for Mackay’s pal, if you’re real, get a life saddo!
Finally, leading the Yes movement, whoever said the SNP should take it over? They haven’t to my knowledge.
Dear reader, who should be the face of the Yes Movement 2021?
Sanjeev Kohli (Navid) or Jack?
