Zero Tolerance and 'Wheeshting For Indy'


The SNP's policy of 'zero tolerance' look like empty words  after its embarrassing handling of the Patrick Grady affair. 

The party hierarchy's instinct is to close ranks instead of investigating allegations speedily, without fear or favour, and this 'wheeshting for indy' nonsense is part of the problem.

SNP's Shameful Gagging Clause (July 08, 2022)

The young victim of the Patrick Grady sex pest scandal says the party's handling of the situation puts the SNP to shame.

I couldn't agree more and it's high time the SNP's absurd 'wheeshtingforindy' gagging clause on party activists was put to the sword. 


SNP Politicians - Speaking Up vs 'Wheeshtingforindy' (July 04, 2022)

What strikes me about the latest sexual harassment stories at Westminster is that Conservative MPs seem to speak up about alleged bad behaviour by fellow MPs.  

Whereas SNP MPs seem to clam up and and 'wheeshtforindy' - apart from one courageous SNP member, of course, who leaked the recording of nationalist MPs rallying round a perpetrator while showing no concern for the victim. 

So what does this say about the culture inside the SNP that the leaker had to act anonymously, presumably  because of the risk of reprisals and punishment from the SNP party hierarchy? 


'Utterly Unacceptable' and the SNP (July 11, 2022)

The SNP claims to be a 'zero tolerance' party and Nicola Sturgeon described the behaviour of her Westminster MPs as 'utterly unacceptable' over the Patrick Grady sex pest scandal.

So how does this make any sense, if Ian Blackford remains as SNP leader at Westminster?

Zero Tolerance and the SNP (July 09, 2022)

Makes sense - lies, dissembling and excuses are completely unacceptable in a party which professes zero tolerance when it comes to sexual harassment.

Does anyone know if the words 'zero tolerance' have a different meaning in the SNP?

Babbling Blackford - Stop Digging! (July 07, 2022)

What an embarrassing, car crash TV interview with Ian Blackford who describes an SNP MP's sex pest behaviour as a 'misdemeanour' before going on to say he hasn't apologised to the victim - but he has apologised to 'any victim'.

What in God's name is the SNP leader babbling on about?

World Leaders In Digging Holes (June 21, 2022)

The MP who leaked the recording of Ian Blackford and other SNP MPs mounting a partisan, one-sided defence of an acknowledged 'sex pest' deserves a medal.

Yet the party leadership seems to have lost its marbles and is threatening SNP MPs with criminal action.

Go figure.
