Wishart has been scathing in his criticism of “English Votes for English Laws”, the proposed measure to limit the voting rights of Scottish MPs to vote on English (and Welsh and even N Irish where applicable) policies in the Commons.
“This is an oootrage!” snarled Wishart in the face of the Tory plans, “this is oooor parliament too! This is the UK parliament! And we’ll be made second class MPs in it if this goes through!” squawked the apoplectic Pete as he cast doom-laden predictions about EVEL accelerating the break-up of the UK (you would think a Scot Nat would be pleased at the idea…) and looked on the verge of running up and punching the speaker before chinning the sergeant-at-arms.
All fair and good (and a bit batty) but Wishart was only last year saying “the issue of EVEL is of no consequence”, dismissing the idea of being unimportant to Scottish voters (who as we all know are the bright centre of the observable universe) and mocking the other parties for getting involved in an unseemly spat.
So which is it? The increasingly apoplectic, vein-throbbing-in-his-temples pub bore sounds more and more like a classic politician – a two faced, opportunistic hypocrite, and with every spittle-spraying outburst he is undermining the SNP’s claim to moral superiority to the “evil Westminster” system they claim to despise.
Pete Wishart, pub bore wannabe, hypocrite and loud-mouth, may not stand out much from his countrymen, but for being an MP stood in full opposition to any semblance of English devolution (and it can barely be called that) he is truly one big stupid cunt.
