A guest post by regular Breeks.
“You just gave up”.
I don’t know if that’s designed to be wilfully inflammatory, but be aware it’s putting you in the same bracket of delusion as Pete Wishart.
If anybody has “given up”, it’s the SNP who’ve been content to sit on their laurels these past eight years, “apparently” oblivious to the SNP re-inventing itself as a Trans-Extremist organisation shamelessly trying to hijack and steal the popularity and mandates warranted by the popularity for Scottish Independence.
Where have YOU been these past eight years Mr McCormick? Asleep at the wheel or are you complicit with the smear campaign and rancid conspiracy against Alex Salmond? What about Self-ID and men destroying women’s sport? Or Drag Queens flaunting themselves in our Primary Schools? How about Stuart Ballantyne getting some answers to his questions? Or let me guess, having reneged on our National Power Company the SNP will now attempt to make political capital from the deprivation suffered by soaring energy costs? Name me a ball you haven’t dropped Mr McCormick.
In your cohort of SNP members who’ve chosen to stay and fight from within, from the outside looking in, I can think of one name to join that cohort, and that’s Joanna Cherry. And frankly, I fear the YES Movement has simply lost a hard hitting stalwart, because Joanna now “seems” successfully baited by the Trans-nutters, whereas I want to see what happens when you mix Cherry concentrate with liberal quantities of SALVO.
From my perspective, ALL the SNP has, is it’s success at the polls. That’s neither down to luck nor judgement, (nor 2 votes SNP “strategy”), but the grinding residual inertia of a poorly informed electorate possibly 3-4 years off the pace in their thinking and stilted level of awareness.
That brings us neatly to the issue of Sturgeon being protected by the Unionist Media, evading scrutiny like the rogue she is, (no doubt due to eye watering bungs of cash she’s giving them), and doing more harm to the Independence Movement than Better Together could envisage in their wettest dream.
There is nobody in ALBA giving up.
By all accounts, the SSRG Conference, with SALVO very much on board, went down an absolute storm. That’s the same Conference you’ll remember which Alyn Smith would never, not ever, attend.
My message to the SNP is if you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem. And right now, basking in hubris and indolence, the SNP is a huge part of the problem.
Go back and fix it? Why? The SNP hasn’t incubated any new ideas since 2014. The SNP is becalmed and dead in the water under Sturgeon and her cronies. Now if you were to rewind a little further, and advocate a return to the SNP pre-2014 under Alex Salmond, then you might have a point. But take a look at ALBA Mr McCormick, ALBA’s even got that covered.
While the SNP waft two frankly bizarre and childish “Independence Papers” under our noses before disappearing for their holidays, Alex Salmond has been all over Scotland working night and day promoting Independence and the ALBA Wee Blue Book.
The SNP is currently writing it’s place in history. But at the moment it’s only a footnote!
Graeme McCormick’s comment that folk that left the SNP had “given up” kicked up a storm. I received many messages from people who had been long term members of the SNP who were enraged. Too many to publish but I selected the above from Breeks which reflects the responses so many people wrote. News for you Graeme, there are many current members of your Party about to give up on the SNP and to transfer their commitment to Independence to a less corrupt form of transport. It gets closer every day.
I am, as always

BEAT THE CENSORS
The purpose of this blog is to advance Scottish Independence. That requires honesty and fair reporting of events and opinions. Some pro SNP Indy sites have difficulty with that and seek to ban any blogger who dares to criticise the Party or its leader. As Yours for Scotland will not bend our principles and allow this attack on free speech to be successful we rely on our readership sharing and promoting our articles on a regular basis. This invalidates the attempts at censorship and ensures the truth gets out there. I thank you most sincerely for this important support.

This site has never sought donations, indeed we have a £3 limit alongside a message further explaining that donations are not required. That has now changed as the costs of running this blog for 2022 have already been raised in donation, therefore for the remainder of this year all donations made to this site will be forwarded to Salvo to help them educate Scots on the 1689 Claim of Right. This is vital work and we must all do what we can to support it.
