Just out of interest, and having some time on my hands, I sought out Nicola Sturgeon’s resignation statement. On Google, the first result was carried in the Spectator. It’s probably one of the longest, self-justifying resignation statements on record, a soliloquy of semi-introspection and barely believable sincerity. No mention of an alleged missing £600,000, which we learn this morning has led to the arrest of her hubby. Sturgeon says the SNP is the most trusted party in Scotland. If that were true, then there’s an awful lot of delusion north of the border. I’m wondering if this could be the moment the SNP’s meteor finally fades. Perhaps the ‘atomic dud’ (© George Foulkes) Alex Salmond will once again ride to the rescue of the independence cause.
All this of course when Donald Trump, playing his duly appointed role as national martyr appeared in court. It makes one wonder about politicians, doesn’t it? Including the Congresswoman who told everybody who cared to listen that Trump was on a par with Jesus and Nelson Mandela. I often wonder how civilisation got this far.
