Does Ross Greer of the Green Party really think the Rev Campbell of Wings whom he fears naming, is killing the independence movement by his attacks on Cat Boyd for voting Labour? Really?
I’d say his Wings over Scotland website, his Wee Blue Book and his Wee Black Book will have garnered far, far, far more support for the Yes campaign than the lack of solidarity shown by people like him, like Common Space, like the National and like the Sunday Herald in their pretentious, ‘professionally journalistic [no such fuckin thing]’ pronouncements on the supposed ‘totalitarian’ tendencies in the SNP (Kevin McKenna). I’ve begun to see these two newspapers as Trojan horses in their promotion of soft [not shock] troops like McKenna, Fry and McWhitter? How better to kill a movement by having its own too posh-to-push members attack it from within?
If anybody is going to lose it again, it will be those oh-so sophisticated ‘democrats’ who should be concentrating their fire on the opponents of independence and not the only group who can lead us there – the SNP. I once attacked Nicola’s increasingly presidential style but I regret it now.
I think Cat Boyd voting for Kezia Dugdale’s Scottish Labour was bloody stupid to say the least. Discipline is all now. You can vote Labour again after we get independence. I don’t mind saying my vote will be going further left than the supposedly radical Boyd’s choice.
Here’s the link to the Greer piece in the Unionist Herrod – says it all.
‘Time to show the door to the lunatic fringe killing the independence movement with its bile’
