The World this week from Mennies.

Sturgeon the enemy of independence.

Friday 17 February 2023

So, Nicola Sturgeon resigned on Wednesday and the only remarkable thing about her resignation statement was that it took so long for her to get to the point of having to make it. She has been out of her depth ever since she became leader of the SNP and therefore First Minister of Scotland.

She was crowned Queen of the independence movement in the months following the independence referendum in 2014. She rode to power on a tidal wave of support for the SNP occasioned by the profound disappointment of losing the referendum. The SNP membership went from something like 15,000 to 120,000 within a very short time.

Now, this was not in any way because of Nicola Sturgeon and all to do with what her predecessor Alex Salmond had done in, against all odds, achieving an overall majority in the Scottish parliament and taking the country to a referendum.

There is a very large amount of the population in favour of independence and that is what Nicola Sturgeon has lived off ever since she came to power. She has to be one of the most successful con merchants in history, giving out copious amounts of carrots before every election, then immediately backtracking on her commitments as soon as the election was over.

Now, to all the people who have offered me an endless stream of abuse, threats, disgusting language, and accusations of being a unionist, for simply pointing out that Nicola sturgeon was not the person they thought she was, I have one thing to say to you.

I told you so, I was right, and you were wrong.

I have had to put up with the most disgusting and threatening behaviour by ardent Sturgeon cult members since I started warning that all was not well in Sturgeon’s leadership, and that was as far back as early 2015.

Nicola Sturgeon has done, not a single thing to bring independence any nearer from the day she was anointed until the happy day she resigned. She has presided over one policy disaster after the next, from ferries that are 5 years late and four times the original budget to her latest disaster, the Gender Recognition. Her performance over the  Covid pandemic was disgraceful, she appeared on our televisions every day, basically spouting the policy of Boris Johnston, with a one- or two-week tweak in the timings of lockdowns. At the start of the pandemic, she was responsible for removing infected elderly patients from hospitals and seeding care homes with these infected people causing the unnecessary deaths if thousands of elderly people.

Her actions during the pursuit of Alex Salmond were despicable and once it is known who the alphabet women are and their closeness to Sturgeon and Murrell it will be clear just where the conspiracy lay and who was responsible for it.

Now we have the contest for a new leader and mark my words it is in the process of being rigged. The contest has been cut down to 4 weeks which is a disgracefully short time for candidates to properly prepare for such an important position. To save you any bother I will tell you now who the new leader will be. It will be Angus Robertson, who, will be there to carry on Sturgeon’s crazy policies such as Gender Recognition.

The main reason for Angus Robertson’s coronation will be to prevent any investigations into Sturgeon’s tenure as first minister. That is the real reason for the machinations being carried out via Peter Murrel and the NEC.

 Once again, folks, you are being taken for the bunch of mugs you have been for the last 8 years and from where I am looking on it is not a pretty sight. The only way I can see around this is the call branch meetings and pass mass motions to have the NEC disbanded and new elections to take place before the leadership question can be debated.

Finally, there is more to this resignation than first meets the eye and I feel that in the coming weeks, this will be made clear. Many people are now saying that Sturgeon’s removal will now allow better integration of the independence movement. I honestly do not think this will be the case as Sturgeon’s legacy will be the conversion of a once proud political party to a cesspit of self-aggrandizement and vindictive persecution of truth-tellers ( ask Craig Murry)

As I have said in the past Sturgeon and her cabal of incompetents have all but destroyed the independence movement and there is no other alternative than to tear it all up and start again.

I do not want to be saying “I told you so” again in another 8 years.



I have been in business for well over half a century but I learn something new every day. My politics are the middle of the road. I believe that the far-right and far-left are equally harmful. Jim Murphy ( at that time, leader of the Scottish Labour party) asked me if I called myself a socialist. I said, "no Jim, I am not a socialist, I am a capitalist, but a capitalist with a social conscience.

  1. You’re absolutely right about Angus Robertson. He is undoubtedly Westminster’s preferred candidate to guarantee the union is safe.
    I think Sturgeon timed her resignation purely to do her last bit of damage to independence. Her ’emergency special conference’ will be kicked down the road, and with it Angus Brenden Macneill’s proposal to dissolve Holyrood and have a ‘defacto indy ref’ in October.
    The SNP is so corrupted by agents of Westminster, be they Mi5 or others there is no hope left for it now, c’est fini.
