One didn't like that question. One won't answer it. Sniff...


Seriously snotty look from the future Lady Lamont.

For a laugh... Thanks to Panda Paws for the heads up.
Even in a comedy take though, they have Salmond on his own representing YES
And Cameron and his deputy, Darling, representing NO
Will they ever treat us fairly?

  1. The question that anyone thinking of vote NO and any journalist worth their salt should be asking themselves is this:-

    If Scotland really is subsidised by England and has a basket case economy, then why is Westminster fighting tooth and nail to keep Scotland in the union instead of helping us pack our bags and holding the door open for us to leave?

    1. Isn't it odd, Marian, that no one has actually asked that question?

    2. I am sure loads of people are asking that question, Lady Lamont would ignore that one too.
      Watched one a few months ago at a Labour Party meeting and she showed the same disrespect.
      If you cannot answer that question yourself then I seriously doubt whether you should actually have the vote, sorry to be so blunt.

  2. The longer this campaign last its becoming more and more apparent that Johann Lammont is not genetically programmed to give us political answers!

    1. I'm not entirely sure that she is genetically programmed for anything. Good manners doesn't appear to be her watchword anyway.

    2. Well according to the Disreporting Scotland programme tonight she sure as hell aint programmed to count Tris. According to HER there are 6 million people in Scotland. I'm thinking she's been hitting something rather hard if she thinks there are 6 million people in Scotland. LOL

  3. I don't think dear old Lamont liked the question she was asked Tris. The trouble is she obviously did NOT receive the memo that said ignoring questions you do not like is not permitted. You must answer ALL questions whether you like the question or not.

    I think you might like this wee video Tris, it was put up earlier by Marcia over on Wings. The important bit is around 1 minute from the end. :-)

    1. Excellent. I didn't think I was going to like him... but I did.

      Thanks Arbroath.

  4. Brough thinks that the bandwagon effect will come into play and Scotland will vote 'Yes'. People like to vote for a winner in other words. Very heartening if we weren't already that way inclined.

    1. Yes. He has a point. I think there may be some people who were not inclined to vote yes, when polls said that only 27% would...I suppose on the basis that they wanted to be on the winning side.

      Now the momentum is with us... as I've said before... unless the UK government finds some terrorist attack on Edinburgh Castle or Balmoral., or some other disaster that they can invent.

      Never underestimate how corrupt Westminster can be.

    2. To be fair Tris, I think if there is a terrorist attack on Edinburgh castle or heaven forbid another attack on Prestwick airport then that will, in my view, only galvanise MORE folks to vote YES. :-)

    3. I hope it will.

      I've always expected that if it looked bad they would try something. As I said one should never underestimate just how low they will sink.

      I still await something like that or a grave message from Buckingham Palace concerning the health of the queen's husband, or something of this sort. Maybe I'm just a bit of a conspiracy person. I just wouldn't trust any one of them as far as i could spit Paris.

  5. Here's a link to the clip where Lamont was asked about her political life being a failure. Happy wee face at the end.

    1. Brilliant, as is your comment on there.


      "Gaun yersel' Jimmy boy! 307 years of Union, the first 8 years of the Scottish parliament with a Labour controlled coalition in power, 13 years of Labour rule at Westminster and this is as good as it gets? Let's saddle up and get out of here!"

    1. Sorry to Munguin and Tris if my flippant comments lower the tone of the argument in the Republic, but the way I see it is that Scotland should be an independent country because Scotland should be an independent country. It's one of those things I know in my heart to true because IT IS - like the law of gravity, or evolution. I just don't understand people who can't see it.
      We, like any other nation on Earth, are unique - we have our strengths and our weaknesses, our resources and our deficits, and most of all, our own set of shared values, which differ in some respects from those of our larger neighbour to the South. There is no argument which justifies subsuming our values to theirs and allowing a government in which their representatives outnumber ours by more than ten to one to dictate our budget and priorities.

      (in other words, I hide my lack of intelligent debating points with humour!)

    2. Erm...

      First off, flippant comments are welcome on here.

      It's not a supra intellectual blog.

      I prefer common sense when politics is concerned.

      Your arguments seem rational to me. I agree. it's the natural state for a nation to be independent and I also think it is normal to form alliances in trade, defence and many other things... cultural, economic, etc etc

      I don't think you are hiding anything. Life needs humour too

    1. The only others available were Bomber Harris (of Hitler's Bunker video fame), Jackie (Hang around I might say something that's true) Baillie, or the terminally stupid one that used to be their health spokesman, Baker.

      She seemed like the best of an appalling bunch.

      I tried to get Niko not to go, but ... you know Niko. Awkward.

      I think he should come back. I miss him too.

    1. She's a comic that one...

      Positive response. All the Labour voters are voting no and SNP voters are too because they recognise the advantages of nuclear weapons, pointless illegal and legal wars, killing hundreds of thousands of foreigners, private healthcare, subsiding other people's railways and sewers while our own infrastructure falls around our hears.

      That'll be why most people either wouldn't open their doors to her or threw her leaflets out.

      Good day's canvassing indeed Jola.
