High level debate from left-wing SNP.

http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/parli ... LlKlTusX6o" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

£444m underspent amid cuts everywhere. That could be defended, could be a proper debate.

Cue instead irrelevancies about Trident, lie about the OBR charter vote, patronising rudeness towards Labour leftist Neil Findlay, and blaming Westminster for everything (though strangely Wales doesn't get allowed that), questions about iScotland's situation ignored, and getting tuition fees in Wales wrong.


Note every SNP droid does the party line. Labour at its worse always has independent leftists.

Tubbs your right about toeing the party line even at the height of the Blair years there were still people in the party who disagreed with him publicly with the SNP you've got none of that and that's what makes them so dangerous

Something to be said for discipline, perhaps.

I'm sure there are SNPers who say in private "that oil price is scary". They don't say it in public.

cf Johann Lamont who hands them "branch office of London".

She's got lots to answer for.

Which was bollocks anyway. How's Murphy doing so far in your view?

Bingo!
Angus Robertson, the SNP’s Westminster leader and defence spokesman, said: “When Labour MPs have voted with the Tories for another £30bn of austerity cuts, it is frankly scandalous that a further quarter of a billion pounds of taxpayers’ money is to be spent on Trident before parliamentarians even get a vote on whether or not to replace the system.
Liar.

Maybe some council cuts biting too. School classes sizes are up a lot.

Hopefully the "whadabout Trident?" is going to wear thin too. They were shit scared about job losses in the referendum and made up a naval base for where Trident is. Though the oil would seeem to be on the wrong side for that.

It does make Labour look bad. But the SNP can be made to look very silly on it too- for such awaste of money they were very wary of admitting to job losses from scrapping it, and put together the idea of a naval base on the Clyde- which would seem to be the wrong side of the country for protecting oil fields. It's a waste of money, but given their vision of iScotland and its thriving international arms industry, it's surely not been all that bad for Scotland.


All parties stage non-binding votes that they then harass others over not attending.
