Of course he said that! If Jim Sillars wasn’t prepared to say such things then he wouldn’t be afforded a platform by the British media. It doesn’t matter that the things he says are increasingly perplexing and detached from reality, In fact, it is only by disregarding reality in favour of the British Nationalist narrative that Sillars can get the attention he so obviously craves.
The problem with such attention-seeking behaviour is that it must become ever more extreme. The attention-seeker has to go that wee bit further every time. When screaming and foot-stamping is no longer effective, the theatrics must be turned up a notch or two. When the British media’s mercenary lackeys turn up their noses at mere criticism of the SNP, it’s time to ramp up the rhetoric and start casting aspersions on the “intellectual capability” of the party leader.
It ill behoves anyone to question the political acuity of a politician with Nicola Sturgeon’s record of success. When the comments come from someone who has so enthusiastically embraced the role of the British establishment’s favourite useful idiot then the irony is heavy enough to affect the tides.
The fact is that Nicola Sturgeon made a quite superb speech to the SNP Conference last week. And that is what prompted the British media’s smear-mongering scavengers to go raking about in the rank dustbin of history hoping to scrape up some slime to throw at her.
They found Jim Sillars.
