Why I’ll now support SNP
WE FACE a busy week after Sunday. On Tuesday the US presidential election, on Thursday that for Glenrothes in Scotland. Quite a difference in size but with this in common: one will make a head of government, the other might destroy one.
I never thought I would say it but were I David Cameron I would ask potential Tory voters to switch to the SNP. Let wee Alex Salmond have Glenrothes if he wants it. It might provoke a spring election and enable us to oust the second worst Prime Minister for ages. (Oh yes, I still think Blair has the championship with a commanding lead in lies; of course, he had more time!)
Back in the US, the snootier in the media continue to go puce at the sight of American Veep candidate Sarah Palin but, as I predicted, about 100 million Yankees have fallen for her. It’s the bouncy hair, schoolmarm glasses, perky figure and maniac wink. Plus the Joe Six Pack vocabulary, doggone it. So what if she thinks the Hindu Kush is something you sit on?
Mind you, I think she’s going back to Alaska by midweek. Mrs Joe Biden will be measuring for new curtains for Washington’s Naval Observatory.
