Nicola as Nazi Fuhrer? Man analyses a woman’s flaws? Mark Smith’s cod psychology again

From Herald images file: ‘Nicola Bad’

Smith opens with:

SNP: Over-confidence and contempt for others. Does Sturgeon have Hubris Syndrome?

before going on to some allegory involving his boiler breaking down.

This is not the first time Smith has tried to apply his not-so-deep grasp of psychological theories. Only two weeks ago we saw:

Needless to say, Smith failed. I gave him 14% for just turning up. You can read the full awfulness of his thickness here:

He’s back again topday, fresh from reading another Ladybird book in their psychology series: ‘Why women have more mental health problems than men.

‘Hubris’ is a word used by historians most often for characters like Hitler and Napoleon who come to think of themselves as infallible perhaps superhuman. It comes before ‘Nemesis’. How commentators such as Smith or Macwhirter would love to be able to use that word in a headline after Sturgeon loses an election or, better still, resigns.

OK, take a deep breath, I’m going to agree with him, just in the teeniest sense that I’ve noticed her saying ‘I’ more often than ‘we’, too often for my liking. I prefer my leaders to talk more in terms of collective decision-making. She is getting a touch presidential.

However, she remains one of the most grounded, honest, trustworthy, rational, open to scientific advice, leaders any of us has ever seen, outside of New Zealand and Scandinavia.

Anyone who looks at her and sees the hubris of Napoleon, Hitler or even the likes of Trump, Bolsonaro, Johnson or Thatcher, needs to have a wee listen to punk legends, the Dead Kennedy’s, Pol Pot era song: ‘Holiday in Cambodia.’

So, Mark Smith:

So, you’ve been to school for a year or two
And you know you’ve seen it all
In daddy’s car, thinking you’ll go far
Back east your type don’t crawl

Playing ethnicky jazz to parade your snazz
On your five-grand stereo
Braggin’ that you know, how the niggers feel cold
And the slums got so much soul

It’s time to taste what you most fear
Right Guard will not help you here
Brace yourself, my dear
Brace yourself, my dear

It’s a holiday in Cambodia
It’s tough, kid, but it’s life
It’s a holiday in Cambodia
Don’t forget to pack a wife

  1. Mark Smith has the Herod. Who else would hire him?
    The Herod has Mark Smith. Scribbles two or three nonsense articles every week, at very little cost.

    Sometimes, things just seem to gel together like bull and sh!t.

  2. Psychologists diagnose psychological problems. Nor would be ‘journalists’. Printing nonsense. Readership declining. Ground hog day.

    Nicola is one of the best Leaders SNP/Scotland has ever had.

    Leaders come and leaders go. Independence is forever. SNP/SNP.

  3. Extrapolated from the headlines—-
    Does that make Mark Smith a “cod-piece” for the imagined vigour of British nationalist sexual potency.
    Of course those who boast about it, dont usually perform.

    Well Said John . . . she’s managed all that whilst getting the full attention of England’s propaganda merchants, Branch Office Politicians. with lot of assistance from a fallen man. And he’s still at it!

    I’m With Nicola
