The situation in Egypt is indeed sad. The loss of human life is not something to celebrate, especially when the chances are that this struggle could all be in vain. As we've seen in the past, religious fascists such as the Taleban, Ayatolla Khomeni or Egypt's Islamic Brotherhood are always willing to step in to fill the void. They are often well enough organised and fuelled up on god-given zeal to complete their mission too. For an account of how Islamic fascists hijacked the mainly socialist revolution in Iran that overthrew a UK-backed dictator, read/ view the graphic novel/ film Persepolis. Here's hoping that Egypt doesn't soon see young Egyptian corpses hanging from lampposts after being found guilty of un-Islamic practises such as being socialist, gay or independently female.
The only thing worse than this would be if Satan-faced non-entity Tavish Scott flew in to Cairo to weasel himself into a 'coalition government'. In the year that sees Scotland's electorate choose a new government we see Scotland's Unionist opposition plumbing new depths in mediocrity. This is even being acknowledged openly in the media. I heard one independent political researcher talking of the choice between Alex Salmond's SNP and the respective parties lead by the limp and uninspiring Iain Gray and Tavish Scott. He observed that even if you didn't agree with Salmond, you could at least recognise that he was fighting for a distinct cause. What are Gray and Scott fighting for? To protect devolution? That's hard to imagine as they seem reluctant to even implement the Calman proposals which they spent our money on researching. It may be mildly interesting to note that 'calman' is Gaelic for pigeon/ dove. I hope then to see Iain Gray later this year puffing out his large grey chest as he strutts around Princes St gardens pecking up crusts thrown by an uninspired public.
But what of Tavish Scott? He of demonic countenance? He is a typical two-faced mealy-moothed Lib Dem. During the snow chaos which hit Scotland, he hit new political heights by calling for the resignation of the Scottish Government's transport minister. When the same chaos hit England a week later, the calls for the Con-Dem counterpart to resign were... not forthcoming. Fancy that! Irrespective of political allegiances though, the word on the street... well from civil servants in the Scots Parliament who have to deal with him, is that Tosspot Scott is an arseloch par excellence, if you don't mind the Franco-Germanic profaning.
Interesting fact and further proof of diabolic status - Tosspot Scott was born on 6 May 1966. Amazing but true - check it out.
