Moore fumbles negotiations
Where have we heard this before?
Tomorrow the Prime minister (Big Dave) and the first Minister (Wee Eck) will have a signing sesh. This isn’t some huge diplomatic meeting but rather a procedural step on the way to the referendum. (I’ll bet there will be pipers and tartan everywhere and wee eck will be in his best tartan troos)
Negotiated brilliantly by Michael Moore (LD MP) who effectively fell hook, line and sinker for the devo-max question two gambit. He gave away everything in the cabinet to stop the safety blanket question that Wee eck didn’t really expect to get anyway. It was a fiction dreamt up by the SNP and hung out as bait. Sadly the daft laddie that is Michael Moore (and others) fell for it.
Sleekit and canny, Wee eck will have to manage his smugness on Monday or Dave will realise just how much he has been had. The incompetence of Mr Moore is even more shocking when we consider that he was negotiating with Nicola.
Of course, it might be that he was terrified of her and just gave her everything to avoid being savaged.
What exactly are the terms then.
1 question. Written by Wee eck.
16 & 17 year olds allowed to vote. (just as wee eck wanted)
August 2014 date. (wee eck’s timetable for a post Bannockburn party)
So all the unionist demands are being met then? Michael Moore seems to think so. (not sure which ones, however)
Will it matter? Probably not. The scots electorate are currently disinclined to support separation from the Rest of the UK (all because of the Olympics and Ryder cup – obviously). A ha, I hear the zealots yell but just wait until the Bannockburn bounce. I fully expect them to stay disinclined when the time comes.
Funding is going to be the last little problem to be given up by Mr Moore, we don’t have details but Wee Eck wants the chance to use his lottery windfall and deny the others their chance to use their funds.
Wee eck wants a fair roll of the dice but wants two rolls just in case.
Mind you, by giving the Nats everything they want, they will have no-one to blame when they lose in 2014. It wont stop them doing so, of course.
Perhaps Michael Moore is playing a blinder and aiming to deal with the SNP for years to come?
Nah, dinnae think so.
Well done Eck another blinder. Bollocks.
