Celtic Chief Brian Wilson (In Yet Another of his Sleekit Innuendo’s) Seeks to Accuse the SNP of Attempting to Sectarianise Scottish Politics

Spouting his latest fantasy at a fringe meeting of the Labour party he said “nationalists are importing loaded political language from Ireland, which carries the risk of inflaming tension between Catholics and Protestants in Scotland. Grouping the pro Westminster parties together as “Unionist” is part of a knowing effort to link supporters of the United Kingdom with Ulster Unionism and “the Orange vote”. By putting that tag on, and in the full knowledge of that connotation in an Irish context, they know exactly what they’re doing. It’s a very dangerous road they’re going down.”

Although Wilson did not single out any party or politician, Nicola Sturgeon, Alex Salmond and other SNP politicians often refer collectively to the “Unionist parties”. Wilson said when Nationalists grouped supporters of Westminster together as “Unionists” it “obviously mirrored images of Northern Ireland, where the political divide is also about the constitution”. One of the worrying things I see going on here is… a very deliberate attempt being made to sectarianise Scottish politics. That is very dangerous.

The word Unionist in Scottish politics is not a Scottish word. It is not Scottish Unionism. When Tory candidates stood [in the past] as Conservative and Unionist candidates in Scotland they were not talking about Scotland, they were talking about Ireland, and they were playing for the Orange vote in Scottish politics.

Note: Utter twaddle “Unionist” in the title of the Conservative and Unionist Party was only ever associated with Northern Ireland. That Wilson thinks otherwise betrays his assertion as baseless.

In recent years, Catholic voters have swung away from Labour to the SNP, to the point where they are now the most pro-Yes religious group in Scotland. Indeed in the 2014 Independence Referendum and in the 2015 general election it was a huge swing by Catholic voters from Labour to the SNP had helped ensure Labour’s virtual wipe-out.

This is the difficulty Wilson is struggling with and failing to understand. Even now, after the public exposure of the cynical betrayal over a period of nearly 50 years of Roman Catholic voters by New labour, Councillors, MSP’s and MP’s and the many newly created peers of the realm) he refuses to accept the new reality preferring to remain with his head in the clouds believing in the sanctity of the 1707 Treaty of Union. An event no Roman Catholic ever subscribed to or supported.

Civil War in the Labour Party in Scotland After Deputy leader Alec Rowley Says Party Should Ditch Unionist Ideology

Scottish Labour was last night plunged into civil war after deputy leader Alex Rowley called on the party to ditch its Unionist stance in a dramatic break with the “narrow” ideology which has come to define it. He said “the shift is urgently needed if Labour in Scotland is ever to recover from the stark decline that has left it facing electoral oblivion and an existential crisis”.

In a seismic intervention that will send shock-waves through the party, Rowley said Scottish Labour had to replace its Unionist stance with an avowedly Socialist and pro-home rule platform. He said the “status quo” of a Union dominated by Westminster and Whitehall could not deliver the radical social and economic change that left-of-centre Scots want to see.

Putting him totally at odds with Kezia Dugdale, Rowley added, “I have never considered myself a Unionist” – and called on Labour to abandon the stance he said was heavily associated with the Tories.

Sectarian Tweets by Tory Ruth Davidson’s Special Advisor Provoke Outrage

New Tory Holyrood group leader Ruth Davidson, has become embroiled in a sectarianism row after it was revealed that one of her staff posted offensive sectarian tweets.

Colin James Taylor, a member of Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson’s Holyrood staff posted sectarian song lyrics on Twitter glorifying the Northern Irish terrorist group, the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF) and also referred to Celtic Football Club as “tims”.

Belfast born Mr Taylor is employed at public expense by Ms Davidson in the Tory Press and Research Unit (PRU) at Holyrood. He was president of the student Glasgow University Conservative Association (GUCA) from 2009 to 2010 and while studying there posted the offensive remarks under the Twitter name ‘ulsterexile’.

Taylor posted lines from a verse of a provocative UVF song about a UVF member awaiting execution, Here Lies a Soldier. He posted: “Don’t bury me, in Erin’s Fenian vallies. Oh take me home, to Ulster let me rest …”, Mr Taylor did not tweet the rest of the verse, which continues: “And on my gravestone carve a simple message, Here lies a soldier of the UVF.”

Not long after he tweeted the sectarian pro-UVF words, the UVF was in the news as the anticipated Northern Ireland police ombudsman report into one of the UVF terrorist group’s worst atrocities was about to be released – the bombing of McGurk’s Bar in Belfast in 1971, where 15 people were murdered and 16 injured. The details of the report, published 48 hours following Taylor’s tweet, revealed that the IRA had been wrongly blamed for the McGurk’s Bar attack which had in fact been carried out by the UVF.

Another tweet of Taylor’s appeared on the eve of the anniversary of the 1979 conviction of the notorious ultra-Loyalist gang the Shankhill Butchers – many of whom were members of the UVF. The Shankill Butchers murdered at least 30 people and tortured many Catholics civilians.

Taylor’s tweet remarks continued and on the day of a Scottish Cup semi-final match between Aberdeen and Celtic, he tweeted: ‘Hope the sheep absolutely hump the tims today’ – tim is a term of anti-Catholic abuse. Taylor is not the first member of Davidson’s staff to embroil her in a sectarian related controversy.

At the very beginning of her recent campaign for the leadership of the Scottish Tories, she was forced to fire Holyrood assistant Ross McFarlane. McFarlane was filmed burning a European Union flag in Glasgow while sectarian remarks were made by a companion. At the time of the incident, McFarlane was the president of the GUCA, as well as being Davidson’s Holyrood election agent.

It has also been noted that Davidson when referring to her party repeatedly uses the name “Conservative and Unionist” – with the emphasis on Unionist. Leading QC, Paul McBride quit the Tories over the party’s hostility to an SNP Bill aimed at tackling sectarianism in football.

The Near Death and Signs of Recovery of the Tory Party in Scotland

Murdo Fraser first stood for election to Holyrood in 1999 but was unsuccessful. Undeterred he turned his sights to bigger things and fought for a seat in the Westminster election in 2001(and failed). Never one to give up easily he lowered his expectations once again and sought to be elected to Holyrood in 2003, 2007, 2011 and for a record fifth time in 2016. On each occasion he failed succeeding only in garnering a lower share of the vote each time his name was entered onto the ballot paper.

But the Tory party were determined that talented Murdo would never be lost to Scottish public service and added his name at or near to the top of their proportional representation list which provided opportunity for a number of failed candidates to be elected to Holyrood as second class MSP’s. Murdo was so elected in 1999, 2003, 2007, 2011 and 2016. A record unsurpassed by any other nominee.

It is noteworthy that the Scottish devolution Bill’s inclusion of proportional representation (so vehemently opposed by the Tory’s) saved the party from oblivion in the first four terms of government. But the practice of retaining the same persons for election, time after time resulted in an ageing pool of candidates (old talentless Tory’s) and subsequent recurring failure at the polls.

The party desperately needed a complete overhaul if it was to command a place in Scottish politics. This was facilitated by a “night of the long knives” in 2011, bringing with it a change of leadership (Cameron acolyte Ruth Davidson) coupled with the introduction of new office management, staff and Central Office financial support and the establishment of clear and unambiguous lines of communication with the office of the Tory Party in London.

Autonomy was a dead duck. Scottish Tory party members would toe the line or suffer the consequences. A new agenda was then put in place tasked with ensuring Holyrood’s independence from Westminster would be marginalised, reduced then eliminated over time.

Getting Rid of the Deadwood – Three Strikes and You’re Out

Jackson Carlaw (Deputy Party leader) announced that long-serving Conservative MSPs would be forced to stand down from the Scottish Parliament from the 2015 election if they failed to win a constituency seat. They would only be able to serve three or four consecutive terms as list MSPs, who are elected using a complicated system of proportional representation to represent one of eight regions of Scotland.

He said the change would be applied retrospectively, meaning a series of the party’s most high-profile figures would have to win a constituency at the next election or step aside if a three-term limit was imposed. They included Murdo Fraser, (the bookies’ favourite in the contest to succeed Annabel Goldie as Tory leader) who is serving his third full term as a Mid Scotland and Fife regional list MSP.

The change aims to address the situation whereby the same people are nominated time and again, regardless of their performance, (such is the loyalty of the party’s rank-and-file that they consistently choose the same people no matter how poorly they perform). Carlaw said “I realise it’s going to be unpopular with some and it is controversial, but I believe we have to substantially renew the face of its party, not its name. Leadership requires the taking of tough decisions.

Only three MSPs of the 15-strong Conservative group at Holyrood have constituencies of their own, with the remainder relying on the regional list for their seats. Some have used the system to win re-election since devolution started in 1999. (The Telegraph)

That’s it. Murdo has been sponging off the Scottish taxpayer for around 18 years at a gross cost of approximately £2million. Contributing nothing of substance he seems to spend an inordinate time (well he’s got plenty of it) twittering nonsense. But surely he is deadwood and what the hell happened to the 3 strike rule policy???
