Today, in the Herald, the kind of unsubstantiated rant you might hear in a pub:
If you know a bit about anything, it’s hard not to laugh at this but remember it’s in a newspaper.
Patrick Harvie may have over-stated the link between the supporting the oil industry and right-wing, but creepy?
As for the rest, he has no quotes. I’ve never seen anything like them.
The refuse collectors were prompted by Scottish Labour and the GMB’s support for Trident and fracking suggests that their marching with climate change activists was a bit…creepy?
We’ve been here before with Kevin.
In October 2016, he wrote:
‘There is a curiously illiberal and reactionary strain running through its (SNP) core which seems to belie its socialist credentials’
Here were his claims:
- Named Person Scheme was soundly trashed
- A Party whose language is a Caledonian version of Orwellian double-speak
- Army of superannuated advisors
- Critics howled down and accused of pandering to paedophiles
- Christian groups jeered and intimidated
- Encouraged by a bunch of indolent academics
Here are SNP actions he clearly didn’t like:
- Named Person Scheme
- Prisoners’ Voting Rights
- New Women’s Prison
- Minimum Alcohol Pricing
- Police Scotland
- Offensive behaviour at Football Act
I don’t know if the many recent repeated child abuse scandals in the, mostly, RC ‘care’ homes or in the, mostly, Celtic boy’s clubs, have moderated his opposition to the Named Person Scheme or if he now wishes we had kept the Offensive Behaviour at Football Act, in the wake of last season’s events.
