Aye Right Radio videocast 183 podcast 243. “He Hates the English”

“He Hates the English”

Rishi Sunak ‘revised’ his Covid support and we review that plus the reaction of Labour rising star Anneliese Dodds.   

Norry fails to see what’s wrong with Angela Rayner calling a Tory MP ‘SCUM’ as it’s an acronym for Scottish Conservative Unionist Mp.   

DRoss gets roasted (again) for hypocrisy after proudly using his dinner lady mum to support free school meals in Scotland yet failing to vote for them in England.  Norry reckons he must “Hate the English”   

Lesley Riddoch on the English North gets a mention and according to the FM Jason Leitch needs a Grinch costume for Xmas.

The Covid press briefing and then the Gordon Brewer show starring Finance Secretary Kate Forbes.

No deaths, 30,000 tests comleted yesterday, 80% success in contact tracing and quarantine compliance, Daily Heil skelped, TES skelped and a satisfied FM.

GERS dominated the Brewer show and Kate Forbes sorted out Peter McMahon from ITV.
“GERS is a picture of Scotland IN THE UK not an iScotland”
Douglas Fraser unusually was sitting on the indy fence and even Brewer interrupted the Unionist MSPs bawling “Too wee, too poor”

Lesley Riddoch suggested that post Brexit day, Hogmany 2020, Scotland could be a target for seduction. The EU, EFTA and the UK all bidding for an iScotland to join their club.

“Lionel Messi is going to HIBS” says Andy Murray.
