Well, it looks like the nightmare scenario is moving a step closer to reality with the launch of the SNP manifesto.
What struck me most of all as I watched the Scottish cuntfest unravelling was the power of Nicola Sturgeon as a public speaker. The woman can deliver, I will give her that. She’s a natural born rabble rouser.
But then I noticed the similarity to another famous public speaker who know how to hold a crowd in the palm of his hand. Nicola Sturgeon – a female version of Adolf Hitler in a kilt…
So what are the SNP proposing?
- Spending increase of 0.5% a year, enabling £140bn extra investment – clearly the SNP, like Labour, haven’t realised that you can’t spend your way out of a recession nor can you reduce debt by putting it on your credit card!
- Annual UK target of 100,000 affordable homes – which is a lot less than the other parties and, frankly, more sensible than Clegg’s 10 new garden cities
- Increase in minimum wage to £8.70 by 2020 – seems reasonable?
- Restore the 50p top income tax rate for those earning more than £150,000 – which I see as a dig at the Conservatives and a fop to Labour
- Build an alliance against the renewal of Trident – which although it sounds sensible would put an awful lot of Scottish shipbuilders out of work
- Retain the triple lock on pensions and protect the winter fuel allowance – sensible
- Abolition of non-dom status – another fop to Labour
- A tax on bankers’ bonuses – ditto
- Mansion tax – ditto
- £24b to be spent on the NHS – Whoa! Where did that figure come from and where will you get the money?
- Oppose withdrawal from the EU – well at least they didn’t say oppose a referendum.
- Sensible immigration policies – er… what exactly might those be?
- Full fiscal responsibility for Scotland – tax raising powers and all that goes with it makes it effectively a separate country by the back door, doesn’t it?
- An end to Tory rule – I wonder why they put that one in. It reminded me a bit of when Hitler blamed everything on the jews and brings me back to my earlier comparison.
