Wee Ginger Dug

Now is not the time, Aye right!

IT’S BEEN an interested few weeks in the insanity that passes for politics in the Benighted Kingdom. Nicola Sturgeon stole Theresa May’s Brexit thunder by announcing that the Scottish government is going to press ahead with a bill enabling an independence referendum, and a couple of days later an enraged Theresa May responded by announcing that she’s not disposed to discuss granting a Section 30 Order. Get back into your shortbread tin, Scotland, was the very clear message from Westminster.

Now is not the time.

I had planned to take the dug for a walk, but then I heard Theresa’s speech saying “Now is not the time,” so he’s just going to crap all over Ruth Davidson’s lawn instead. Scotland was regaled with the incredible sight of a party with a single MP and a mere 22% of the Holyrood vote claiming that they speak for Scotland. Standing beside an increasingly huffy Fluffy Mundell, secretary of state for telling Scotland what to do, Ruth Davidson, the leader of the opposition party, a party that came a very poor second in the 2016 elections, had the gall to appear before the media at a press conference and announce that she and her party were not going to permit the party which won the election fulfil one of its manifesto commitments. The only thing that’s going to happen is that a whole pile of ordure is going to fall on the Tory party in Scotland.
