THIS IS A LITTLE ODD...


Somewhat disconcerted by the massive increase in the number of SNP, Green and SSP memberships, it seems that Labour may be trying a wee fight back. According to this fellow he voted YES, but he won't be joining the SNP. Fair enough I'm sure well over a million people feel just like that.

But wait...I can't be sure, but it looks to me like Mr Davy was actually voting no, and was, indeed, an agent for the No campaign, and there is his authorisation to enter polling stations and a NO rosette.

I could be wrong of course. Maybe there is more than one Braden Davy in Aberdeen who is politically motivated. And maybe they all have the same picture on their twitter accounts. 

Or maybe this is just a big set up to fool us all.

Never let it be said I don't consider all the possibilities.

I just wonder why Labour won't tell us how many members they have now.

    1. We are too wee, too poor and definitely too stupid to figure out when they are LYING and when they are not Tris. Well at least that is what THEY think.

    2. Or perhaps... we know that they are always lying to us... and until recently we didn't seem to have the will to do anything about it.

      But that seems to have changed!

  3. To be fair to Mr Braden it seems he was directing people to the link in his tweet rather than implying he, himself voted "yes" and wont be joining the SNP.

    The link takes us to a site called revitalisescottishlabour.org in which a guest poster says he/she voted "yes" but wont be joining the SNP because the SNP are driven by err "nationalism" the greens because they are driven be an err "green agenda" and the SSP because they get hooked up on dogmatic trivia and attack Labour.

    Most interesting I thought was the posters disgust for the professionalization of politics. Odd for Mr Braden then to publicise that kind of thinking seeing as he is a youth councillor in Aberdeen and so we can assume is a would be real Councillor as soon as ever he can. Making him an erherm career politician with no grounding in real life other than a stint on JSA and housing benefit when he was 20.

    What is clear is his hatred for the Tories, although not clearly a patch on his distaste for the SNP otherwise why did he vote "No" and condemn Scotland to having a Tory government two thirds of the time!

  5. Is Davy Braden in long trousers yet?

    Doesn't read like he is.

  6. Mr Braden's Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Braden-Davy-MSYP-for-Aberdeen-Donside/546850955367288?sk=info

    Has him proudly boasting of being a Member of the Scottish Youth Parliament for Aberdeen Donside. Correct me if I am wrong but is the SYP not a non-partisan organisation for promoting issues concerning young people between 14 and 25? I'm wondering if they are aware of Mr Braden's very partisan attitudes and tweets?

    2. Sorry I'm late Munguin. It won't happen again.

      I couldn't sleep for hunger pangs... Could you think about a pay rise for your editor?

  8. Well, we did say that after the vote we wouldn't be able to find a single person who claims to have voted "No".

    I wasn't expecting it to happen so fast, mind.

    1. It's not surprising Illy.

      I'd be embarrassed if I'd been taken in by promises made left right and centre by someone who then disappeared off to New York and luxury 5 star hotels, leaving the said promises looking very sad indeed.

      Where's Alistair Darling by the way?

    2. Maybe in Brian Wilson's Manhattan apartment for a break after his exertions on behalf of the privileged.

    3. I'm surprised he doesn't have one of his own there.

      He could have flipped his expenses for it, I'm sure.

  9. I expect Braden to garner a list seat for Scottish Labour and a personal audience with Millipede and Johann in recognition of his suitability for a Jack in the Box Broon award.

  10. I read Alan Grogan's resignation letter online and thought there goes another one, I read the Scottish Pakistani's ( sorry forgotten the name) and Alan Grogan's reply to it which was that he understood his resignation but why join the SNP. Trouble with Labour it gets people into a gang mindset which few seem to have the ability to leave. Look at Denis Canavan and Denis Skinner for instance. They either are in the latter Denis, never leave the sinking ship even when it no longer represents what they fought for or like the former, he was sending congratulations to Donald Dewar after he was forced out of the party.
    I am a member of the SNP, but I have left when it went along with things I did not agree with, why do people not use their vote in Scotland properly? You find that the English will vote according to their interests mostly, they do have their Tribal section, but it is not so dominant.

    1. I'm not sure why anyone who is a socialist ins a member of labour... and I'm not sure why people who are liberals or democrats would want to be a member of the Libdems.

      Tribal loyalty, or hatred of other parties?
