New pals in the Tory/Labour Coalition

Here is Margaret Curran MP keeping even worse company than Willie Bain, Michael Moore and David Mundel – Richard Baker MSP.

No surprise – they ganged up against the SNP minority government in its first term, i.e. they ganged up against the people of Scotland – and they’re still at it over the independence referendum.

Three cheers for the Tory/Labour/LibDem Coalition – formed to block the freedom aspirations of the Scottish people.

  1. Hi Peter,

    Words fail me regarding Richard Baker's hypocrisy. Let's just say he is not credible when he claims that SLAB did not consult London HQ on their Scottish tactics over Megrahi. He is not credible because that would appear to be the only matter in the whole of SLAB's actions in Scotland that they do not seem to have toed the London party's line.

    Thought Issie did a very fair interview overall, though she did allow Baker to shout her down a couple of times. Mind you, when shouting over her, he was digging his own grave, so I shouldn't complain.

    Also, the man is like a Sherman tank once he gets going. Even a direct hit sometimes fails to stop him in his tracks. It must be a curse to be so emphatically sure that you are always as right as he seems to think he is.


  2. I did an extended profile of Richard Baker on my blog some time ago. One thing I would not think of him as is a Sherman Tank, Rab, more as a deeply irritating small animal that keeps biting one's ankle while making squeaking noises.

  3. Ahem... Dick Baker is a list MSP. He is not any sort fo MP.

  4. Apologies, Holebender - now corrected!
