WOULD YOU BUY A USED CAR FROM THIS MAN?
The Hypocrisy of the anti-independence pols and their running dogs in Her Majesty’s Press, has reached new levels with the teeth-gnashing contempt shown for the First Minister and his sin of articulating a thoughtful realpolitik assessment of Putin in GQ magazine.
This was an interview given BEFORE Putin goosestepped his way to anschluss with Crimea.
Jackson, in the view of we ourselves, is deserving of the highest honour we can bestow on a dissembling pol.
Now to provide some context, Jackson is not the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree, and he’s never actually won an election or anything.
Rather he has been the beneficiary of welfare in the form of the Holyrood assisted places scheme, that allows hopeless dullards to pick up a fat salary and a nice pension for coming in fourth in a poll.
No one can say Carlaw, erstwhile car salesman of 25 years standing, lacks ethical standards or moral rectitude.
When there were moves afoot by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds to make the Golden Eagle a symbol of Scotland, Saunch Unionist and Tory Carlaw was outraged, comparing that ancient icon of Alba to a symbol of Nazi Germany and Roman imperialism.
There can be no doubt that those citizen victims of the austerity package implemented by his boss, were cheered to know Jackson was on point looking after their vital interests.
So is it any surprise he was shocked, shocked, when Alex Salmond brought seasoned nuance to an evaluation of some of the major players on the world stage, one of whom was Vladimir Putin?
Even saying the dictators name gives Jackson the vapours.
Here’s what he had to say as reported in the Huffington Post:
“Putin is keen on suppressing the media and political opposition, so it’s no wonder Alex Salmond admires him.
“This is quite an embarrassing ramble from the First Minister, who is desperate to be seen as some kind of equal to global leaders.
“It also makes a mockery of the Scottish Government’s faux outrage over the Crimea situation. The people of Scotland will see through this most recent sucking up offensive.”
“[S]ucking up offensive”, hmm . . .
So it’s quite clear what Jackson thinks of Vladimir and Salmond.
It is a puzzle then, that we ourselves can find no statement of his condemning his ultimate boss, the Capo di tutti capi, David Cameron, for conspiring with and “sucking up” to, the very same Vladimir, to put a knife in Scotland by openly questioning Scots competence to run their own affairs.
Cameron was all over Putin like a cheap suit looking for a favour from a foreign dictator to act against the interests of 5 million British citizens he is sworn and honour bound to protect and serve.
How could this sin of omission from the righteous Jackson Carlaw MSP possibly be?
Well, its hard not to conclude that Mr Carlaw is other than a hypocritical, mendacious, gasbag. An opportunist who’s interested in the optics of an event, and how he can distort them to serve his own nefarious needs.
We ourselves have great pleasure then to present to JACKSON CARLAW MSP the award of
HYPOCRITE OF THE MONTH
