Remember Alistair, he was the big beast who was going to sort out the uppity wee Nicola. Aye right!
His best argument here against her was that everyone else was wrong except her so they’d better not discuss it. So a huffy big beast with no arguments and a tendency to erm, lie.
Anyway, Alistair, I note that we voted to stay in the UK , which was what you wanted, and … oh, look what happened. That lot took us out of the EU, just as Nicola suggested might happen, against the will of the Scottish people, expressed in 2016, I’d say much more forcibly than was the will of the British people to leave.
And on Thursday we saw that little of the arithmetic had changed.
Scottish people voted as strongly for Remain parties as the English voted for Leave parties.
Still, Michael Gove or Boris Johnson, or some such person, is going to be elected by a tiny electorate of elderly blue rinse Tories (and that’s just the men) and bring “the country” together, because, god knows, they are such excellent conciliators, all of them…
Sorry, I probably should have warned you not to take a sip before that last sentence.
