Ian Blackford uses his address at the SNP conference to criticize Michael Gove’s dance routines.
Following film showing the Conservative clubbing in Aberdeen, Ian Blackford of the SNP criticised Michael Gove for his dance routines during his party conference speech.
Mr Blackford, who spoke virtually at the SNP convention, expressed his delight as Scotland reopened after months of severe restrictions imposed on Scots. Following the relaxation of limitations, he voiced his eagerness to watch his “favorite” Hibernian Football Club, and questioned what others could be doing with their leisure. But he then went on to mock the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, who was recently caught on camera dancing alone in a bar.
“While we have all adapted to the changes brought on by the epidemic, I believe by this time we all have the very natural desire to meet together in person again,” Mr Blackford added.
“The good news is that we’re getting there slowly but steadily. This year, we gather in the genuine hope that this will be the last time circumstances force us to meet virtually.
“However, friends, every modest step we’ve done together over the previous year has resulted in tremendous steps toward a more normal way of life.
“The things that we’ve all been missing have either back or are on their way.”
“While it may have meant a summer of family reunions for you, it also means watching my beloved Hibernian, as many will do tomorrow,” Mr Blackford continued.
But, in a subtle dig at Mr Gove, the Westminster SNP leader drew a crosshairs over the Tory while grinning at his timely joke.
“For Michael Gove, that also means dancing alone in an Aberdeen nightclub!” he said.
“However, whatever decisions you make for yourself, we are all privileged to be in a far better place.”
