‘Titanic Failures’ Billboard
Scotland Matters has erected a cartoon billboard in Victoria Road, Glasgow G41 1PT.
It depicts Nicola Sturgeon and Alex Salmond on the prow of a rusting ferry, the “Glen Alba” in the “Supermajority Shipbuilders” yard, in a parody of the famous scene in the film “Titanic”.
A spokesman for Scotland Matters said “our billboard pairs the two people whose close relationship has dominated Scottish life and politics for the last 14 years, with one example of their incompetence, the overdue and over-budget ferries for CalMac which a Holyrood enquiry described as a “catastrophic failure”.
“In their obsessive pursuit of Scottish independence, Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon have trashed Scotland’s education system, conducted, and still pursue, an independence campaign full of undeliverable promises, creating division in our country, fomenting anti-English feeling, and their recent scandals and cover-ups have tarnished Scotland’s good name here and abroad.
They are trying to grip Scotland in a deadly “supermajority” alliance in order to steal the Holyrood election and subject us to five more years of decline, division, sleaze and Indy can-kicking instead of working with all parties to deliver a sustainable recovery from Covid.
The fact that non-existent windows had to be painted on the ferry symbolises the all style and no substance Salmond and Sturgeon years and we urge and encourage Scottish voters and the pro-UK parties to work together, to ensure our votes are not split and wasted.”
