RISE - The "Scottish Syriza"

Recommended Posts

Loki is the Scottish version of that Hillbilly Elegy tosser from a few months back who idiots thought 'explained Trump/Brexit' - useful because he's an authentically working-class person who happens to say the things that the biggest wankers in the commentatorsphere agree with.

Imagine your entire schtick being about how authentically working class you are and you don't know the biggest insult flung about when you were a wean.

MC Edgelord is a fucking imbecile who never has much to say about the extreme right wing views of his patrons like Daisley or centrist c***s like Harry Potter.

He also writes a load of sexist and racist pish and then has to climb down in the grimiest ways possible.

I don't mind Angela Haggertys politics, I think she is pretty fair across the board and if I ever send anything to common space it has been published. I just don't think she is a particularly good or insightful writer.

They're all luvvies jockeying for a commentariat position in a post-indy Scotland. I don't think any of them are particularly insightful or offer anything groundbreaking. Then again, neither does the vast majority of the commentariat at a UK wide level.

Loki has had a go at the 'middle classes' and their comfort and ignorance. He's now a Scotsman columnist FFS... and his tweets are admired by JK Rowling's beast-friend Brian Spanner.

I've followed McEnaney a few times intermittently on Twitter but I always end up unfollowing him. I agree with a lot of what he tweets and he has a pro-Yes/anti-SNP stance which interests me but there's just something about him I find a bit irritating.
 


Fast becoming the most insufferable one on scotpol after Loki - some decent views, but has a massive smug face and is a patronising guy. Suspect he’ll go a bit Tompkins in the future and go from RISE to more right-wing (though I believe he’s not a member of the party anymore anyway).

He’s got his own book coming out as well - expect 5/5 reviews from the commentariat.
