Yesterday was the snp's 80th birthday and the snp/separatist/cybernats have vanished like 'snaw aff a dyke', what is going on?.
They are happy to talk and indeed sing about events hundreds of years ago but not their own creation a mere 80 years ago. There must be some pretty ugly skeletons in their cupboard by the looks of things. What are they ashamed of?, what has scared them into uncharacteristic silence?. Do they not want people to know about the creation of the snp? do they really think that sticking their heads in the sand will make their shame go away?. Anyone intrigued by this display of shyness should research the history and pay particular attention to the squalid characters who created the party and read about their attempts to stop young Scottish men from fighting Hitler and fascism. It's quite a story and they richly deserve to be haunted by it, a certain Mr. Arthur Donaldson ex leader of the snp, founder member of the party and Nazi sympathiser who was jailed for his pro Hitler activities casts a long dark treacherous shadow still. Despite this sordid past the snp still hold an Arthur Donaldson lecture annually. Is that perhaps the reason for their silence?.
