Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP MPs at Westminster whinge that the Westminster government doesn’t show them enough respect. Respect has to be earned by the manner in which you comport yourself in actions, deeds and words, as well as your achievements.
In all these areas the SNP have fallen woefully short of acceptable standards. They have proven themselves to be unprincipled, duplicitous and opportunistic.
For years they have ranted on about “Tory snobs”, “Eton toffs”, “Westminster posh boys” and “Hooray Henrys”. I cannot recall any similar name–calling coming back from Westminster. Just imagine the furore if just once David Cameron were to call them a “bunch of jumped-up Jocks”.
The SNP would do well to remember the wise sayings: “As ye sow, so shall ye reap”, and “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
