Ian Blackford’s attack on Boris backfired dramatically
The comments come in light of the fact that the SNP leader at Westminster, Ian Blackford, intends to move a no-confidence motion against the prime minister, in order to focus the House’s attention on his personal failures as head of government. However, Eliot Wilson, author and co-founder of the strategy and public relations consulting firm Pivot Point, criticized Blackford, saying: “Blackford is no less than a man.”
Speaking about not enjoying the prestige of the SNP representative in the Houses of Parliament, Mr Wilson said: ‘When he gets up to speak the Prime Minister’s questions on Wednesday, there is an audible lament from all sides. from room. ,
In an attempt to tarnish the prime minister’s reputation, Mr Blackford said: ‘Until he faces the consequences of his disastrous actions, he will not simply think that he has got away with the filth he has found.’ He’s been doing it for the past few months – he’ll think he can start again.
The SNP then tweeted that the motion due on Tuesday would highlight the fact that Scots have “no confidence” in Boris Johnson’s leadership.
Writing in The Telegraph Mr Wilson also said: ‘While the SNP seeks to show ‘trust’ in the government, it does not – as some careless souls might have mistakenly assumed – file a motion of no confidence. ,

He continued: “Instead, Blackford will introduce a ‘speed of condemnation’, a broader and less formal instrument that usually comes in the form of an early-day motion. No-confidence motions have specific consequences, and this is exactly the case for the SNP. Style is not.
However, it seems that this act is going to have a reverse effect on the SNPs.
Mr. Wilson suggested: “Whether the Prime Minister is facing him, it is the SNP leader who fears him. He knows the motion of condemnation will be defeated, and overwhelmingly defeated.
Earlier such proposals against Chris Grayling and Esther McVey were vigorously rejected during their tenure in cabinet. Confidence motion is a serious constitutional matter and can lead to the fall of governments.
Mr Wilson said: “This motion of ‘no-confidence’ is nothing but parliamentary straw.”

Questioning the rationale for Mr Blackford’s choice, Mr Wilson said: ‘The righteous reader may then wonder why Blackford would want to pursue a strategy that is so clearly doomed to fail. ,
Stating that the SNP knows they are doomed, Mr Wilson said: ‘Blackford knows he doesn’t even have the numbers to alert the government. Johnson has an executive majority of 77, so even the official opposition is powerless under normal circumstances.
The commentator suggested that Scottish nationalism obscures the SNP’s point of view.
He said: “In the blind tartan world of the SNP, however, Blackford does not need to win. By choosing the censure motion, he avoids attacking the government in central policy areas such as education or health – where the SNP’s administration in Edinburgh is badly hit. is failing.

Criticizing Ms Sturgeon, the author also said: ‘Nicola Sturgeon, Prime Minister, to avoid defending her record in power, prefers to focus on the perceived evils of liberty, the great panacea and Westminster government . ,
Scotland is looking to implement a second independence referendum, which it predicts will be possible by 2023.
Mr Wilson suggests that any defeat at Westminster would strengthen Scotland’s position that there is a deep divide between London and Edinburgh.
He added: “A heavy defeat in parliamentary terms also suited Blackford. It reinforces the idea of ’them and us’ as a brave group of freedom fighters against Scotland at Westminster, the SNP’s political establishment.
He said: “Ian Blackford knows what he’s doing. Tomorrow he will pit his small army against the big government battalions, and in parliamentary terms it will be a genocide. But it suits him.”

Stating that the SNP would use the law to advance its cause of independence, the commentator said: “Because it fuels the fire of grievances, widens a wedge between Scottish voters and the government and creates a whiff of magic.” Serves important. SNP’s battle cries, don’t look at our records, but look at our enemies.”
Polls suggest that Scottish citizens can vote for an independent Scotland.
Scotland voted to remain in the UK in the 2014 referendum. However, as the UK is now outside the EU, the terms and conditions have changed for Europhile Scotland, which seeks to reap the benefits enjoyed in the EU.
