It’s been coming for some time. Ian Macwhirter, apparent supporter of independence in 2014 but soon disgruntled supplier of bitter opinion pieces attacking Nicola, NHS Scotland and anything Scottish, has finally come out.
This revisionist piece today places him well for a career in London as a house jock.
Like him or loathe him, Boris Johnson will tonight become one of the most important political figures of the past century when the House of Commons finally votes for his Brexit trade deal. Thus ends nearly half a century of British membership of the European Union, and the Brexit culture war which has bitterly divided the nation for the last four and a half years.
Mr Johnson is a most unlikely history man. Most political commentators,
myself included, dismissed him as a charlatan, a buffoon, an intellectually lazy chancer who just got lucky when he was elected London Mayor in 2008. But no one has a lucky streak as long as his without having a touch of genuine political genius.
Has he read anything at all that might enlighten him as to what Boris really thinks of all of us Jocks, even toadies like him and Ruth?
No matter how he lionises Boris today, he can be sure that Boris will sneer and snigger about him within minutes of meeting him at some London soirée. The other guests will delight in pretending they cannot understand what he is saying.
Mwah mwah spaffed up the wall!
