Oh Alex, you really need a JCB to get yourself out of the whole you’ve gotten yourself into. He’s still standing by his claim that whilst he did lobby for Rupert Murdoch, he only did it to bring more jobs to Scotland. The thing is he STILL can’t go on record and say how many additional jobs would be brought to Scotland if Murdoch took over BSkyB. Couple this with the fact that he’s still claiming that he didn’t lobby for Murdoch in return for positive press from the Scottish Sun and you wouldn’t be the only one thinking that something really fishy was going on.
He’s claimed that 2,000 BSkyB jobs were under threat, perhaps as a way for him to get himself out of this fiasco. Does that mean Murdoch would have arranged to pull the plug on Sky jobs in Scotland if Salmond didn’t abide to his lobbying?
With regards to Donald Trump, he did promise the billionaire that he wouldn’t have windfarms built anywhere near the golf resort, a promise which has subsequently been broken by the SNP. Alex Salmond stated that “I’ve fallen out with Donlad Trump because he doesn’t seem to understand that offshore renewable energy will bring 28,000 jobs to Scotland over the next 10 years.” However, are there really 28,000 coming to Scotland over the next ten years? Let’s not forget this ‘minor’ slip up by the SNP who forgot to tell the nation that £170 million would NOT be coming our way.
As mentioned numerous times on this blog, can the SNP really be trusted to run this country when they’re getting their stories mixed up something rotten? All they’re interested in is destroying the Union, and acting like they’re hear to save Scotland. Scotland does indeed need saving, and the people can do so by voting for any other party than the SNP!
