Scottish Secretary, Jim Murphy, (the scrotum on the right, sitting next to the most INEPT politician on the planet, Labour Leader Iain Gray) and the SCOTTISH OFFICE, (for dis-information), have been at it again trying to talk down independence by selectively picking figures from the Scottish Budget purporting to show SCOTLAND couldn't stand on it's own two feet. My feelings for Murphy are summed up by the following quote:
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero (Ancient Roman Lawyer, Writer, Scholar, Orator and Statesman, 106 BC-43 BC)
One question Mr Murphy. If England is subsidising us so much, why is she desperate to keep us in the union? Or is that just NEW LABOUR afraid to lose the seats in the British Parliament?
