Stalin Sturgeon Is a National Embarrassment – Er… Something of a Joke…
From The Scotsman Newspaper…
It tends to happen when she is on some foreign trip or meeting foreign dignitaries – such as her surfeit of selfies at COP26 in Glasgow last November – causing jokes about her looking for a high-powered UN role. Well it all has to stop. There’s really no need to speculate anymore for it’s now abundantly clear – Nicola Sturgeon wants to be a stand-up comedian.I am not joking, what other conclusion can one make after our First Minister has decided to tell gags in Holyrood rather than talk sense? Unfortunately, people are not laughing with her but at her. Swapping First Minister for First Comedienne is not an easy transition.I write, of course, about Ms Sturgeon’s recent routines on classroom doors and old age pensions, both of which her had opponents cackling like hyenas.Trying to defend her Government’s funding of alterations to classroom doors as being a decision for councils to take fooled no-one. The point people thought was laughable was she could see nothing wrong the range of alterations including doors having a couple of centimetres lopped-off the bottom (supposedly so air could more freely circulate ) and actually sought to defend it.

Perhaps only those who have worked in schools in recent times will fully appreciate the utter nonsense which Sturgeon’s new ventilation scheme represents, and it’s not likely to be restricted to schools. I’ve been hearing, anecdotally, that at least one local Council has sent workmen to cut the doors in flats to aid the ventilation – although allow me to be explicit: I know of one flat-owner who has had a visit from joiners to saw off the ends of the doors in her Council flat. “They whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad” springs to mind.
Is there a Christian in the land who could honestly, hand on heart, vote either for the return of the SNP to Government in Scotland, OR for independence from the UK?
Well, since the Bishops of Scotland – as evidenced by by their actions and silence – are clearly on-side with this awful Government, I will. I will definitely vote for both… Ten years after Hell freezes over.
