Alex Salmond is a slick operator. Of that there is little doubt. But has he been there too long? Has he now lost the political nous that's kept him at the top of his game for so many years?
After what without doubt has been THE MOST INEFFECTUAL CAMPAIGN in history in which the main party political broadcast appeared to be some fuckwit 'high-fiving' his mates and then walking up a mountain to shout "SCOTLAND" at the top of his voice like some reject from 'Braveheart', most SNP bloggers like myself and SUBROSA are quite frankly incredulous at the way Salmond has jumped into bed with LABOUR in order to form what he terms a 'PROGRESSIVE ALLIANCE' or some such ridiculous moniker.
If we had wanted to vote LABOUR we would have voted for them. Most SNP voters fucking hate LABOUR. I for one, would rather cut off my right arm than vote for them. And what's more Labour hate the SNP just as much. What Alex Salmond forgets is that many SNP supporters want Scottish independence not go create some great socialist state, but simply for the reason that we believe we can coax our fellow Scots away from the habit of appearing to be benefit junkies and back to being the progressive people we have been in the past. I believe in social justice, but you have to wonder sometimes at a people who have been fed shite by Labour for sixty years but still vote them back in every chance they get.
Alex Salmond, should be willing to work with any government who is able to take power. We all know that the cuts are coming and the SNP's 'more Nats, less cuts' slogan at the election was cringe worthy and was seen through by the electorate. He should be working to get the best deal he can to further the causes of INDEPENDENCE, that's why he's there.
The Scottish elections in 2011 are now starting to loom and it's time the SNP got their act together for them. We don't want to let those Labour bastards back in!
