Tory MP: SNP Don’t Know Their Rs from their Elbow

Tory MP Simon Hoare has an interesting perspective on the story that Scots are losing the distinctive rolling “R” from their accent.

“I listened with great attention Mr Deputy Speaker to the Scottish Nationalists this afternoon, ilistened with great attention because we are told in the press that they now can’t say their Rs. Well they can certainly say their Rs, but when it comes to welfare reform and economic management I’m afraid they don’t know their Rs from their elbow”

Cybernats will love that.

Fox Shot: No Tally

The government have shelved tomorrow’s vote after the SNP, to quote Angus Robertson, “remind[ed] an arrogant UK government of just how slender their majority is”. Usual tail…

For Fox Sake: Timeline of How SNP U-Turned on Hunting Vote

Nicola Sturgeon, February 8 2015:

“The SNP have a longstanding position of not voting on matters that purely affect England – such as foxhunting south of the border, for example – and we stand by that. Where any issue is genuinely “English-only”, with no impact on Scotland, the case for Evel can be made.”

SNP website, May 19 2015:

“The SNP has a long-standing position of not voting on matters that only affect England. The Hunting Act is one such matter that purely affects England and Wales, and so SNP MPs would not vote on this issue.”

And yet, just two months later…

Angus Robertson, July 13 2015:

“The Scottish National Party Westminster Group met this evening and decided to vote against the Tory Government’s attempt to relax the ban on fox hunting south of the border in Wednesday’s vote… it is right and proper that we assert the Scottish interest on fox hunting by voting with Labour against the Tories’ proposals to relax the ban – in the process, reminding an arrogant UK government of just how slender their majority is”

Well it put them off the scent…

Och No! Angus MacNeil Spends EU Vote in Loo

Screen Shot 2015-06-09 at 20.21.30

53 SNP MPs voted against the EU Referendum Bill in the Commons last nights. But one was missing:

According to Labour whips, he was hiding in there after going through the wrong lobby, and not wanting his Aye vote to be cast.

Ken Clarke abstained too, but for a different sort of crap.

UPDATE: MacNeil speaks exclusively to Guido:

“Felt I needed a little attention from Daily Mail as they were ignoring the SNP and wanted to make new MPs feel good when experience makes an mistake but mostly was distracted by Labour and Tories pleading for SNP votes for Select Committees”

Alex Salmond #EverydaySexism

Alex Salmond risks life and limb telling Anna Soubry:

“The Treasury bench should behave better in these debates, she should be setting an example to your new members not cavorting about like some demented junior minister – behave yourself, woman.”

A brave choice of opponent…

UPDATE: Soubs hits back with one of her tamer remarks:

Play It Again, Salm

A once great statesman reduced to loitering around the dingy bars of Westminster putting the world to rights with washed up has-beens.

The other, Alex Salmond.[…]

Quote of the Day

Charles Clarke says Cameron is the most successful PM for over a century…

“Under Margaret Thatcher the Conservatives gained 99 seats. They lost 211 under John Major, gained one under William Hague, quickly and wisely got rid of Ian Duncan-Smith, gained 32 under Michael Howard and have so far gained 133 under David Cameron who, to the great surprise of many (including senior Conservatives), has turned out to be the most electorally successful Tory leader since 1900.”
