|King Anas, moved up in the world. Appointing noblemen to jobs|
Anas Sarwar has appointed, if you please, The Noble Lord, Baron ffoulkes of Cummnock, The Noble Lord, Baron Robertson of Port Ellen (where they speak Gaelic), The Noble Lord, Baron Reid of Cardowan, The Noble Baroness, Lady Liddell of Coat Dyke and The Noble Lord, Baron McConnell of Glenscorrodale (if it's no tartan, it's a skirt) to the Yes for Labour campaign or whatever it is called.
Doubtless his reasoning for doing this is that:
a) the Labour party relies heavily for anyone of gravitas on a House of parliament that they have always vowed to abolish (but never have) and
b) because they know that ordinary working class Scottish people really love and deeply respect the their social betters.
I know for a fact that one word from the mouths of any of these people, who are my betters, will immediately change my mind.
Frankly I think they are taking a big chance with this.
|George, as sober as a lord|
The want to get a positive message across, but as far as I can see we have already had plenty of people with ordinary red blood trying to tell us that with a Labour government in England all social ills will be cured. There will be social justice for all our peoples and we will have enormous clout in NATO, The EU, The UN, and every other world body.
It hasn't worked thus far.
Why do they think that there is much chance of the message being any better when it comes form blue bloods that rely on the House of the Living Dead for £300 a day tax free and loads of subsidised grub and booze.
If it's not tartan, it's a skirt
I mean, I don't want to criticise, Anas, but, personally, I’d be wondering if these noble personages weren't bending the truth just a wee bitty so that they could keep their aristocratic snouts in the plentiful troughs of Westminster.
They should get Mental Mickey Forsyth to join them. I know he's a Tory, but they are all much of a muchness.
