Nicola Sturgeon – An Opportunistic Politician? Surely Not! Never! No Way! One Is Shocked!editor
Well, say what you like about Ms Sturgeon, she knows what she’s talking about when it comes to corruption…
Which is why it’s a tad surprising that the Scottish hierarchy seem to support her, almost as much as she supports the LGBT+ lobby with no small emphasis on the “t” component.
I do hope Dan Wootton is right and that the game is up for wee Nicola. But, I’m not so sure. What about you?
Sturgeon is the queen of opportunism. Opportunistically manipulating circumstances for personal gain is what she specialises in, along with generating hot air.
Ironically, her mode of operation has now moved into the territory of damaging the independence cause – another reason why she will likely not be with us too much longer.
In 2014, she would trumpet that Scotland is on the verge of a “second oil boom” – and this black gold is what would pay for an independent Scotland. Now, comfortably within a decade, she calls for an end to oil development in Scotland. So, far from advancing the ropey case for independence, she is now actively knocking it down.
Her volte face on oil was – of course – pure opportunism for personal gain. This, along with bringing the Green luddite-perverts into Government, was all about creating a stage for herself to swan around COP26, as she openly sought a new job with the UN or climate quangos.
It is depressing that significant numbers of Scots seem to lack the gumption to see through her – especially after 7 years of her constant waffle and constant failure.
However, her star is undoubtedly waning – as recent polls indicate. While she was groomed for years as the successor to Alex Salmond, there is no obvious successor to her: her mentality would fear a protege as a rival. And so, her coming departure will hopefully mean the separatist movement being de-railed – which in turn should cause the Parliament to focus on important day to day matters, instead of airy pipe dreams.
Sturgeon doesn`t want an end to oil production in Scotland. She is lucky that Boris Johnson has the say in
granting permission for exploration: that allowed her to pretend otherwise. She will be over the moon when (not if) the oil companies get the go-ahead. A win-win situation and she knows it. That will keep her in “friendly” terms with Patrick Harvie, who, if it is possible, is even worse and whom she will have no love for either. She will then be able to tell how Scottish independence will be financed.
Her mouthpiece, whatshisname`, in Westminster, condemned Johnson at the start of the epidemic for missing 5, so-called, Cobra meetings, conveniently hiding the fact that she missed four of them trying to get her pictures on the news bulletins jumping up and down on trampolines in places like St Ambrose` school in Glasgow.
She is, what you would term, a Fly lady. She was even photographed in Glasgow beside one of the (female) world leaders who turned out to have had covid, so why didn`t she self-isolate for the required period? Or even a lot longer.
I didn’t know Sturgeon had been so close to a Covid sufferer so you are right, why didn’t she self-isolate? The answer is that the rules are for us and not for them.
Read this – people trying to escape the Australian quarantine camp – I just hope they don’t head for Scotland, LOL!
Nicola Sturgeon is definitely opportunistic. It’s interesting what Dan Wootton said about her reaction to Omicron – that is the very first thing I said when I heard about it, that Nicola would jump on it and use it to bring in more restrictions.
I don’t remember reading anything at COP26 about her seeking a job with the UN so I’d be interested to learn more about that – is there any evidence or is it just guesswork?
Re: Sturgeon and job hunting, I suppose the notion came from trying to read between the lines regarding her actions around the COP26 conference.
She made sure of getting ‘selfies’ with all the fashionable personalities, like Greta Thunberg, and was even photographed posing with Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez while holding up cans of Irn-Bru (cringe!). She even succeeded in lingering in Joe Biden’s vicinity for a few minutes. Other photos included Angela Merkel and Al Gore. She made sure she was one of the most widely photographed people present, and with as many ‘names’ as possible.
She also made sure to affirm and give toadying praise to everything UN Climate Chief Patricia Espinosa said or did. (Espinoza could have suggested burning old tires for energy, and Sturgeon would have slavishly praised the idea.)
At the same time, she was very active in the media, such as CNN and Vogue Magazine. Although in this arena, she struck a very different chord from climate alarmism, talking about themes such as “female leadership” and, tellingly, “life after politics”.
We didn’t have any concrete proof like a job application form, but, at the time, even the BBC remarked that she had managed to turn the conference in a major networking opportunity for herself.
Another sign of her great opportunism!
Maybe we should launch a novena to St Joseph to assist in her job hunt!
Thank you for that information, Gabriel. It makes sense in the age of selfies!
That is beyond belief. I found this brief report on YouTube and as one of the commentators wrote underneath, if only they’d hunt down real criminals like this. Exactly!
That really is beyond belief. Having to “escape” from a quarantine camp sounds extremely sinister to me, yet the two broadcasters seem to think nothing of it. That’s truly scary.
I just posted this link on the Spiritual Void thread but it probably fits here as well because I think Nicola would introduce them here at the drop of a hat.
I think we ought to re-double prayers for our temporal leaders. I mean, can you name one – even one – who is anywhere near decent, in the UK?
Yes, and No.
Short and Sweet Can’t Go The Wummin. Anything else and it’s Swearing.
I wish they would give Nicola a job at the UN – she could hardly do that from Glasgow, LOL!
She is still banging on about independence but I don’t think she’s got any intention of running another referendum. As Dan said in the video, notice the “Covid permitting” when she spoke about another referendum. That won’t happen. She knows the result would be the same or worse for the indyref2 movement.
I hope our Scottish saints will protect us from her political ambitions. What might be good for her is different from what would be good for Scotland. Just looking at how hard she has worked to make Scotland the LGBT+ capital of the world I worry about what she would do in an unfettered Scotland, free from any checks and balances in Westminster.
I wouldn’t rely on Westminster for ‘checks and balances’. They’re equally as bad.
I agree, they’re all as bad as each other. Having said that, Nicola takes some beating and this long-standing scandal at a supposedly top Glasgow hospital, is one huge example of this.
It’s cost a packet, and yet is often described as “dirty” – in the 21st century, can you imagine?
I thought I would add this comment from someone reading the above report.
“WHY was this hospital built next to a sewage plant and also next to Shieldhall cleansing depot where multiple bin lorries empty their loads constantly several times a day ? The stench from both these places is unbearable especially in the summer when it is hot.”
The only thing I’d question there is that we get hot summers, LOL!
The only leader worse than Sturgeon, IMHO, is the Welsh guy, I can’t remember his name. He doesn’t mind spending a fortune on questionable (if not useless) vaccines but this woman is having to go to court for cancer treatment that could save her life. It’s a disgrace.
I posted that video a couple of days ago on another thread, when I was replying to YOU, LOL!
I do wonder, as someone else said, why she didn’t just say she was exempt from wearing a mask, though, that seems odd and the interviewer didn’t pick up on it.
