Dougie to Unleash "Savage Attack' on Nationalists

Douglas Alexander, Labour's general election co-ordinator, will today tell a Labour students' conference at Strathclyde University that a vote for Alex Salmond's SNP will strengthen David Cameron's chances of becoming Prime Minister.

He will unleash a savage attack on the Nationalists, saying their "politics of perpetual protest are not suited to government" and that publication of the draft referendum Bill illustrates their "misplaced priorities".

I may be biased but I certainly don't see perpetual protest from the Scottish government. The fact that cuts will be applied throughout public services is the full responsibility of badly managed finances by the Westminster government and the SG protests no more than other parts of the UK.

Mr Alexander's misplaced priorities don't ring much of a bell either. The SNP want to give the people of Scotland a referendum on their future. What is misplaced about that? Voting for the SNP could well raise the presence of the SNP in Westminster and that would be no bad thing.

He'd be better looking to his department, the Department for International Development which hands out billions of our money to some rather questionable projects. In Nigeria, for example, under the heading of 'tropical forestry projects information system', there are 9 EU projects, 1 Dutch project and 23 DFID (UK) projects.

Makes you think he ought to be spending time looking into his own department's expenditure rather than preaching to the converted in Glasgow.

Well well well, the Butcher of Bagdad, the Atilla of Afghanistan is speaking to young yousuf & co....

The truth is that Dougie is a treacherous wee gobshite who would cut your throat as much as look at you.

Savaged by Douglas Alexander. I'm reminded of Denis Healey's remark about Geoffrey Howe that an attack from Howe was like being savaged by a dead sheep!

Morning Not the Messiah, you obviously know Dougie well then. :)

subrosa said...

I thought you'd like that one Strathturret. :)

That's to strike fear in their hearts? Like being thrown into a gerbils wheel!

Mr. Mxyzptlk said...


why aren't the snp higher in the Westminster polls your argument being they are popular??

Labour - 42%
SNP - 20%
Tory - 19%
Lib Dems - 14%

subrosa said...

Yes OR, us independence supporters are quaking at the very thought of Dougie expounding such oratory. :)

subrosa said...

Niko, I haven't a clue. Has the poll been done on the west coast? Nobody's ever contacted me for my opinion.

Strathturret said...

mm was this the Sun poll that asked 128 people?

Crinkly & Ragged Arsed Philosophers said...

Self confessed fraudster vows to expose SNP competence - would be a more accurate headline.

But why let truth get in the way of butter that can't be believed being lashed on political bread?

subrosa said...

The Sun or the Record I should think Strathturret.

subrosa said...

RA, I can't believe you're telepathic. The title originally was to be along those lines but I thought I mustn't distress my only labour reader. :)

I work regularly with DfiD and to say they are populated by a number of extremely bright individuals that do not live in the real world is an understatement!

Dougie Alexander is as big a fuckwit as his sister and has been out of his depth in Westmidden Government thanks to Uncle Cyclops charitable employment, since the rotten Liebore criminal fraudulent political machine voted him in.

Scotland has nothing to fear but fear itself, students are easily misled, they read books rather than get out and experience life, poor fuckers, I hope they haven't paid to listen to this idle twat!

I support you comments, we aspire to much much more than wee Dougie can offer from Westmidden.

Subrosa I hope you will moderate Craizy Daisy's language.

I see no need for sweary words. Other blogs are full of them, your blog is usually pleasantly free of such stuff.

My apologies for my profanity, I have mild turretts!


Suck my wake!

subrosa said...

I hope they haven't paid either CD, losing a spare Saturday surely is enough.

subrosa said...

Strathturret, I shall immediately ask him to moderate his language.

subrosa said...

CD, tut tut now, Strathturret possibly doesn't understand the meaning of your last remark.

Strathturret, it's sailor's speak but it's not profanity- so my Naval friends tell me.

I do hope you forgive his exuberance.
