The SNP leadership and it’s political appointee’s are sycophantic Party apparatchik’s guilty of personation who readily accede to the ill judged capricious ideas of she who must be obeyed
The Scottish National Party Government and associated Regional Branches employ approximately 841 people.
An investigation of the Party organisation indicates that the bulk of this total were appointed to office dependant on who they supported politically, eg LBGTQ+ supporters or close friends of persons responsible for the offer of employment or close family members. Nepotism personified!!
The concerns of many Party members when alerted to the abuse of office by senior officers is being broadcast on internet social media networks. The bubble has burst!!
The May 2022 Council election provided an opportunity for the Party membership to send a message, “not in our name” to Sturgeon and her fellow political conspirators openly determined through spurious subterfuge and downright lying to deny Scots their independence. But, yet again the electorate rolled over as one and got a comforting belly rub.
We’re in it for the money honey
The 841 non-independence seeking officers of the SNP gift themselves between £32,690,000 and £43,150,000 each year and it is safe to assume that much of the financial largesse is being tucked away in private bank accounts for retirement days in sunny warmer climes.
