Xenophobes v's Charlatans

After a near perfect siesta during Ming's speech Porridge wasn't let down by Nicol Stephen either. Okay there is one tiny, little item that made him stir.

In true sanctimonious FibDem style he aimed to give the impression that everyone else bar those nice FibDems were being negative:

"And this is shaping up to be the most bitter, negative personal campaign we have ever witnessed in Scotland. [Oddly Porrdige seems to recall this being said by the Fibs at every election]

Words like “charlatans”, “desperate”, “ranting”, “raving”, “deceit”, “pathetic” and the promises of a “highly personal attack” do not do much to help people decide, do they?

People in Scotland have had enough of negativity."

However it seems this usual hypocrisy has been rather exposed by a one Jamie Stone whose remark about the Nats being "xenophobic" has sparked this, and this, and this, and this. Porridge still remembers the “highly personal attacks” on "Two Jobs Bob" in Bromley.

Apparently Nicol has still not reacted which is a tad strange considering his remarks above. Whilst old Porridge couldn't cfare for the Nats' feelings on the matter he is rather intrigued at why the word "charlatan" gets a mention from Nicol but the word "xenophobic" doesn't merit a comment?

Could it be somethng to do with the meaning of "charlatan"?:

A person who makes elaborate, fraudulent, and often voluble claims to skill or knowledge; a quack or fraud

Oh! You mean a Liberal Democrat.

Nicol's claim that he was a £431 million building were rather dubious
