NO IndyRef2 Allowed

bitter

It is almost like Theresa May has become flushed with her minority government achieving total domination over the Westminster parliament and the modern dictatorship of Spains right wing government using extreme measures in denying the Catalan people a say over their self determination, that she has become dictatorial enough to openly say that the people of Scotland will not be allowed to have another say on the matter of Independence.

The following exchange happened  during Prime Ministers Question Time.

From Hansard:

ROSS THOMSON (ABERDEEN SOUTH) (CON)

“Following our successful Offshore Europe exhibition last week in Aberdeen, can the Prime Minister assure me and my constituents that support for the oil and gas industry will be at the heart of the industrial strategy so that we can maximise economic recovery in the North sea? Does she agree that the biggest threat to the industry would be the instability of a second, divisive independence referendum?”

THE PRIME MINISTER

“My hon. Friend is absolutely right. We have already given significant support to the oil and gas industry. I was pleased, some months ago, to visit Aberdeen and to visit the technology centre for the oil and gas industry. It is doing really interesting work looking not just at existing fields but at decommissioning work and how it can export its knowledge and expertise across the world. He is absolutely right that what people and businesses want is the certainty of knowing that Scotland will remain in the United Kingdom and that there will not be a second independence referendum.”

That response from Theresa May, with the spoken emphasis on the part highlighted certainly had more than a few Scots who wanted to be masochistic enough to watch Prime Minister Non Answers on TV spitting their coffee out all over their screens and shaking their heads in disbelief. Indeed there may have been a few TV sets which joined the endangered objects list.

However, all is not as it seems…..
While Theresa May most certainly uttered these words, taken in context of the whole sentence it is something entirely different… There is no denial of Scots to have a second referendum but an assertion without any evidence that the Scots people want the certainty of knowing Scotland will not have a second Independence referendum.Oh sure some would want that, but about as many would certainly disagree with that statement.

Indeed If Theresa May actually really did officially come out and say such a thing, then the one sure certainty is that not only would Scotland most certainly have one, and we will assuredly do so in any case, but she would just as certainly absolutely guarantee that Scots would by a large majority stuff the words right back down her throat with a resounding ….. OH YES!!!!

Indeed, that would be the one credible scenario where UDI (Unilateral Declaration of Independence) could occur, thus proving her words prophetic, but not in the way she intended.

Now comes the Winter of our Discontent

hqdefault

From the Nightmares of Summer to the Winter of our discontent.

How short a time it seems since early summer, and how much has happened since.

To begin with we had the vote and the announcement in the Scottish Parliament from which the First Minister proclaimed that there would be a second Independence referendum after the Brexit negotiations were settled and before Brexit itself took place.
The mandate for this vote came about because of the significant change in circumstance which would see Scotland being taken out of the EU.
At this juncture there was no way that Nicola Sturgeon could possibly have predicted that Theresa May was about to endeavour an attempt at political suicide by calling an early and immediate General Election.
Although the vote to have another Independence Referendum had the will of the Scottish parliament and thus the people of Scotland, all the Unionists parties, Labour, Conservative and LibDems chose wilfully to ignore it and set about defying that Will.
What followed was literally Mayhem!

General Election

Theresa May against all expectations called an early and Immediate General Election despite proclaiming often enough that she would do no such thing.
Why did she do it?
She did it because the Polls were telling her that the Torys were as much as 30 points ahead of Labour. A Labour party which had been in total dissaray since Jeremy Corbyn had been elected as its leader. It had endeavoured to sack him and preventing him from standing in the ballot after the parliamentary labour party had by a large majority expressed a vote of no confidence against him. However they too misjudged their own membership and a movement called Momentum was born and which organised itself to such an extent that the hapless Jeremy seemed like a modern day British Che Guevara suddenly.
Theresa May then managed to stage the worst ever election campaign by any leader anywhere at any time ever, and the gap rapidly closed to the extent that Jeremy looked like he might even win.
In Scotland however there was a different story.
The SNP ran a completely insipid campaign, almost threatening to usurp Theresa Mays woeful effort. They actually tried to run a campaign on normal election policies, when their opponents were doing something almost as unheard of themselves, only a lot more effectively.
Ruth Davidsons Tory party ran with no policies whatsoever other than a slogan which said NO to Indyref2 , and to vote for them to get the SNP out!
Kezia Dugdale meanwhile headed Labours campaign along similar lines, to the extent that they even advocated voting Tory in areas that the Tories were most likely to be the SNPs main challenger. Labour voting Tory? Unbelievable!
The Libdems did something similar but much more low key, and didn’t stand candidates in many seats thus allowing their possible vote to vote for one of the other Unionist parties.
It worked…. The SNP took a hit but still retained the most Scottish seats, but with huge losses of Alex Salmond and Angus Robertson in the North East.
No policy had won over actual policies…. who said Scots were clever?

Labour were reasonably content, they basked in having by their standards in recent times a reasonable campaign season and won back a handful of seats, had managed to stitch up with their Tory Brothers some Councils in the Council elections, and had succeeded in cementing their place as the 3rd Party in Scotland.
The Tories while horrified at their Westminster showing were cockahoop in Scotland at becoming the winners of the General election here….. well so the BBC said anyway…and they are the prime political influencers in Scotland….. So it must be true.
The SNP went home to think again.

Recess

Finally after years of constant campaigning it was time for the MSPs and MPs in the respective parliaments to have a holiday, and for the rest of us to have a breather.
But not before Theresa May, who really should have gone, managed to bribe the DUP from Northern Ireland at the princely price of £1.5 Billion of our money from her magic tree to prop her up. We haven’t heard the last of that grubby deal by a long chalk yet.

Marching Season

With Racism and sectarianism having been given free rein in Mays Brexit Britain, and with some reportedly dodgy backhanders going on between the Scottish Tories and the Orange Order and the Ulster unionists along with the Scottish Tories having been encouraging and ramping up sectarianism for quite some time, the Orange Order were out in force all over Scotland banging their big drum.
Senior Labour politicians from England were over to observe the Celebrations in Northern Ireland too. On top of that sectarian abuse occurred on our transport system, online and in public more so than for quite some time.
Make no bones about it… while most Scots rightly are proud of Scots inclusive reputation, we too have our share of bigots and racists, and while their views have been subdued for long enough, they now feel confident to spout their bile and have their views spread more openly in Brexit Britain as it has seemed to be encouraged more and more from right wing views down South.

YES HARI KARI

With possibly an element of boredom setting in with the sudden cessation of political activity… The moribund YES campaign, or that which remains of it On Line decided to get in on the Summer Madness..
There really hasn’t been much of the YES campaign since it was officially stood down after the Independence referendum. Not in the way that Better Together reorganised themselves anyway… While they continued both politically through their parties kept banging on about the SNP forever banging on about another Indyref and not getting on with the day job, with the full intent of scunnering the general public by forever hearing about it. And the SNP duly obliged by barely ever mentioning it until they announced the vote on it, thus appearing to have been going on about it all along! The activist side had got itself going with huge handouts to Scotland In Union and other groups to continually trash the idea and keep hammering home the message that Scotland is rubbish.
The YES side apart from a few well attended marches, and some local groups coming to life have really been nowhere other than YESsers chattering away to themselves on social media.
So what did they do….. They all started fighting with each other on line and created further division between various factions.. In truth….to use a Prof Curtis phrase they had been sniping at each other since 2014 as they have squabbled on issue and party lines and forgot the overriding goal needs to be achieved together or completely lost.
We might not always agree, and we don’t necessarily need to personally like each other, and indeed we might even have different expectations of the Independent Scotland we would like to see. But one thing for sure is that we will see none of what we would like to see without Independence.

Other Things

There was a raft of other things too, but I am not going to have a look at them right now in depth.
Corbyns Blunderland visit where he literally said that Scotland was a Country of England, and that we didn’t have our own separate legal system.
Ruths racist Torys being further more exposed and readmitted with their sectarian and racist views unchallenged….and Ruth suddenly going into hiding and then seemingly interviewing herself for the BBC whilst falsely claiming that these people were repentant and had agreed to sessions on diversity training and had been in touch with Nil by Mouth. This after telling Trump he should bow his head in shame for similar.
The letters which gave deportation orders to EU citizens from the Home Office followed by a leaked 82 page document detailing that post Brexit Britain would operate a quasi apartheid system.
The Brexit negotiating shambles carrying on at snails pace with indications that the British government are ready to bale out on the hardest possible brexit… Corbyn and MAY showing their true colours by both wanting out of the EU and the Single Market and on immigration.

Mays Full Hitler

And now that they are back to business…
May is pressing ahead with her GREAT REPEAL BILL ….sometimes called Henry the 8th powers which are for the purpose of bypassing parliament, and stacking up the committee which chooses these statutory instruments with Brexiteer Tories… It is almost carbon copy of how Hitler took control of the German parliament and well on the way to becoming a fascist dictatorship. That taken with the other actions of that government and how they are taking away the lifelines of the most vulnerable in society, their actions/inactions on employment legislation, the intent to remove human rights legislation, the selling off of the NHS by piece meal, and her governments alignment with Trumps Right wing America are all part and parcel of it.
I don’t wish to be alarmist or a prophet of doom, so thankfully I can say that she and her government cannot fully ape Hitler as Little Britain is not that strong. But she and her kind can do irretrievable damage to those living on this Island.

There is currently a Panelbase poll doing the rounds and what it asks is alarming from a Scottish point of view. Given that these polls are not just a snapshot of opinion but can be used to shape opinion. It asks roughly if you would a) want an Independent Scotland b) prefer Scotland to be continued to be part of a devolved UK or c) to end devolution and be fully part of the UK…   I don’t have the exact wording at hand at the moment but that is in effect what it asks. This is the first time we have seen devolution being removed suggested!
Which all ties in of course with what the Scottish government have been suggesting, that the Great Repeal Bill is about to be used to remove these previous areas of devolved competency that were part of the EU legislation and taken back to Westminster… In effect a power grab… But that question goes further and gets people to think about removing devolution entirely!
I don’t know yet who has commissioned this poll but it will be interesting to see.

and so on we go into the winter of our discontent with the Brexit scrambled eggs about to hit the fan.
Hang on in… It is going to be some ride!

In Praise of the Apathetic, the Brain Dead and the Bigots

of4muvtog73xoyaaqe3ozg30lc4y9y.jpeg.gallery

One might have thought that with all the relative positivity about Scotland recently in the face of the dire news coming from all across the Unionists camp that Scottish voters in 2 council wards in Glasgow Cardonald and Fortissat North Lanarkshire might feel encouraged to vote in numbers and positively in their local bye elections yesterday.
Unfortunately that seems not to be the case. In Cardonald a meagre 23% turned out and in Fortissat not much better at 30%

At the end of the day Labour were absolutely thrilled as they won both. Cardonald was a seat held and Fortissat a Gain from the Conservatives. The Labour resurgence continues, or so it would seem.

Lets have a look at the Cardonald result first..
In May the SNP had most of the first preference votes in this seat but lost out in the vote transfer, so they may have felt they stood a reasonable chance of taking the seat this time…and they certainly put a fair bit of work into trying to do so in the run up.
What happened instead was the following.

Cardonald
Labour 48.6% (+10.1)
SNP 36.7% (-7.5)
Conservatives 10.3% (-1.7)
Greens 2.7% (+0.2)
Liberal Democrats 1.5% (n/a)
Scottish Libertarians 0.2% (n/a)

That is a swing of 8.8% from SNP to Labour
Labour HOLD

Fortissat

Labour 38.5% (+2.0)
A Better Britain – Unionist 23.3% (+12.2)
SNP 20.6% (-8.4)
Conservatives 11.5% (-1.8)
Independent – Cefferty 5.0% (-5.1)
Greens 0.7% (n/a)
UKIP 0.5% (n/a)

That is a swing of 5.2% from SNP to Labour
Labour GAIN from Conservative

SNP lost 7.5% of its vote in Cardonald and 8.4% of its vote in Fortissat so the question is where did that lost vote go?
In Cardonald it could have conceivably transferred over directly to Labour with returning former Labour voters as labour increased their vote by 10%
In Fortissat that is definetly not the case because Labour only increased their vote by 2%
What we see in Fortissat is an entirely different picture because the SNP were beaten into 3rd place…..by the Better Britain Unionist Party!
WHO?? Yes I know, I hadn’t a Scooby who that was? I had to Google them to find out.
In any case they increased their vote by a whopping 12.2% giving them 23.3% of the vote.
Well the missing SNP vote certainly didn’t go to them!
This did have at least one Labour MP crowing with delight at that result.
The Conservatives who had previously won this ward only dropped 1.5% of their vote and that is despite the scandal of their previous winning paper candidate refusing to take up his seat!
Indeed with All the scandal and allegations of fraud and misappropriation of £20million being aimed at the previous Labour leadership and the shouts of Cover UP at the stitched up current Labour/Conservative coalition one does wonder at the electorate in this area voting as they have.

With only a pitiful 23% turn out at Cardonald, voter apathy seems to be the main culprit, and certainly a bit of disillusionment with the SNP given their loss of votes across the board at the General Election. There is no real evidence that Labour are generally making gains on them, but rather the SNP falling back. This cannot have helped any by the constant bickering which has been going on within the YES movement in recent times not the SNP failing to Inspire until very recently.

The more worrying aspect is the seemingly gain in confidence by the Bigots and Racists in Scotland which have been Inspired by and given voice by the Torys. They now feel that it is perfectly ok to express these views and it is Societally acceptable so they are becoming more brazen and confident in spreading and expressing their Bile. Our Media must take their share in the blame for encouraging them by not taking the Torys to task and Indeed actively promoting Ruth Davidson and her party full of racist bigots.
We need to put a Stop to this fast, and being apathetic is not the answer!

Going back to this Better Britain Unionist party in Fortissat, who are they and what do they stand for?
founded in December 2015 by activists from the Better Together campaign it is against Devolution and sees it as the slow road to Separation, and is vehemently opposed to any further Independence referendums ever.
It has called for both the British and Scottish parliaments to work together to pursue closer union. In addition to this, it proposes several pro-UK cultural policies such as flying the Union Flag from every Council Building.It has also called for Trident & Faslane Naval Base to be retained at their current location. It is Pro Brexit, Anti EU and Anti Single Market.

“it is equally important that the government recognises that the Brexit vote showed many peoples’ discontent with the broad trend of globalisation and the move towards a world of open borders and all that comes with it: multinationals, mass immigration, and so on. These are genuine concerns and must shape the path that we forge following our exit from the European Union. It is time that voices within the pro-Brexit camp began to emerge which could make the case for a more balanced approach to trade, recognising the place for both free trade, and where appropriate, measured protectionist policies. This was historically the British way, and we ought to consider pursuing it once again.”

Unlike some of their fellow Unionists they hold some left of center views too. Their candidate here was a former Labour man and had this to say ” It’s also a good unionist ward; the SNP only took one seat out of four here in May, so they know their nationalist agenda isn’t wanted.”
Unlike the other Unionist parties, he was well known as he actually stayed in the area all his life. So a mix of left and unadulterated Unionism here.

So there we have it…. All in all a disappointing night with Apathy the biggest winner and encouragement for the Unionists the Racists and the bigots…

Report Card: Must do much better and cut out the carping and knuckle down to more effort.

To Live in the early days of a Better Nation

10990825_10202356933204127_8946683413121450917_n

The plan for government introduced by the First Minister yesterday caught everybody by surprise, both her detractors and her supporters. Nobody but nobody was expecting it,and it caught everyone on the hop with its vision, its breadth of intent, its boldness and might we say even a bit of Scottish gallusness and audacity. It really was quite breathtaking, almost like the glow of the lights of the Saltire bridge was reflecting off it.
Who would have thought that in the midst of a Brexit calamity which threatens to tear apart the whole of these Isles that such thinking would be thought possible? Certainly not the floundering opposition who could only come up with feeble worn complaints about the constitution.
I wont trawl through all of the proposed 16 bills which have been widely reported elsewhere, but rather look at the implications of it all. In particular that of the development of a Scottish Investment Bank, for right there we see another intent and preparation altogether. We see the groundwork being prepared for a Scottish Central Bank and a new Scots currency for an Independent Scotland.

To quote the First Minister:

“This Programme for Government is our plan to seize those opportunities.

To build the kind of Scotland we all seek – an inclusive, fair, prosperous, innovative country, ready and willing to embrace the future.

It is a Programme to invest in our future and shape Scotland‘s destiny.”

Only once during this plan for government did the First Minister allude very briefly to IndyRef2, and that was to say that It would be looked at again after the result of the Brexit negotiations were known. As far as the Brexit process was concerned, any attempts to remove Scotland from the European Convention of Human Rights would be firmly resisted and steps taken to codify it in Scots Law. Otherwise it was a full on programme of innovation and promise.

Of course the Brit Nats who had already been spitting feathers through clenched teeth at the praise and worldwide approval and coverage the Saltire bridge had been getting were not in the least happy, and certainly it wasn’t too long before the BBC sought to downplay it, and the chattering press began to spout sour grapes at it, however the damage had already been done because the whole of Scotland already had been speaking about it. Organisations in every field were singing praises.

This of course is ultra bad news as far as the Proud Scots Brit Nats are concerned, and the howling on Social Media has been delightful to behold.
As an aside… Isn’t it funny how these Proud Scots must proclaim they are Proud Scots….But.
When every real Scot who is actually proud of their Country never ever feel the need to pronounce they are Proud Scots, because it is taken as a given that they are. So absolutely no need to make any such pronouncement as they are the Real Deal.
Whereas Proud Scots hate the Saltire and want it removed at every opportunity and replaced with the Union flag and joyfully cheer on any perceived Scottish failure and deflect and dismiss claim of any Scottish success. They really are a strange bunch.

As if the Saltire Bridge was not bad enough, they had been confounded by a whole load of other Scottish successes in quick succession.. The World tidal energy record generation on the Pentland Firth, The success of Glasgows satellite technology sector, Glasgow University coming up with potentially better ways of combating cancer than radiotherapy or chemotherapy. Edinburgh University with a whole body scanner which can see through the whole human body. The opening of the National Sports Training Centre at Inverclyde. And Now this programme of government…. And of course being voted the most beautiful Country in the world.
How they must have hated it!

And just when they maybe thought things couldn’t get any worse from their perspective, what happened? The leaking of the Westminster governments secret draft plans with regards to European Citizens is what happened. The contents of that 82page draft document proves how despicable they are, and the imposition of effectively a Nazi type apartheid regime which will cause untold damage to us all if implemented is not worth contemplating.
Not only that but European citizens who have long since made their life in this country and married and settled down may find themselves being asked to leave.
The damage which these measures alone will inflict on the Scottish economy, particularly in sectors like our hospitality and tourist industry, food processing, our NHS sectors alone are incalculable.
On top of that is the news that many of us suspected, the Government officially did the dirty on the promise they had made to the Clyde ship builders on the remaining 10 frigates they were assured of if they voted NO to Independence..these are now to go out to contract piecemeal across the UK.
Ruth Davidson gave an Interview where she stated that Brexit could do irretrievable damage to the British economy, but she still will not oppose it.
David Davies the Brexit minister again refused to meet with the Scottish and Welsh governments to discuss the negotiations.
What they assuredly will be extremely unhappy about is that Michel Barnier the EU chief negotiator is coming to meet with Scottish MSPs to discuss Brexit negotiations, that really is a 2 finger salute to Westminster and a clear indication that the EU are not prepared to leave Scotland behind and adrift.

So all in all… 2 very different sides to the Scottish constitutional coin..

Where  is all this leading?  I would suggest straight down the road to Independence.
For Scotlands own sake we have to get out of this British Union which is threatening to strangle us and throw us all over a cliff edge and the way to do that has already begun.
By showing that Scotland is both humanitarian and progressive and “To build the kind of Scotland we all seek – an inclusive, fair, prosperous, innovative country, ready and willing to embrace the future. ”

“It is a Programme to invest in our future and shape Scotland‘s destiny.”

In my opinion Indyref2 will be sometime in the next year or 18 months…no later.
We all know for all our sakes how we must vote then.

*I hadn’t realised until I published this, that this is my 500th article here… It seems like an eternity since I began in 2011. How appropriate that this should be that article for that milestone….. The early days of a better nation has begun*

Nationalists are Not Equal to Unionists

Do you not know your place? Do you somehow think that your views count in the Grand scheme of things?
Whatever might have been said, you are most certainly not a valued partner.
After all that has been said these past few years, let us be absolutely certain that none of the platitudes and promises and vows were even partially meant, and if you haven’t yet twigged onto that, I am not sure where your head has been?

Let me take 2 quotes from an article written today, which I will link to later on.
The first of these quotes says ” nationalists and unionists “are not equals”.
“politically it means nationalism is a minority political force.”

An earlier view from this Lord at the time of the Independence Referendum called for  Scotland to be re-partitioned in the event of a vote for independence.

Now before some of you start spitting nails, I had best spill the beans. These quotes were taken from an article in the Irish News and they are with regards to comments made by the former UUP leader ad MP in Westmonster and now a Lord, John Taylor or Lord Kilclooney in relation to the ongoing disputes between the Ulster Unionist parties and the Irish Nationalist parties in Northern Ireland.

Nevertheless, I feel that other than his previously unwanted intervention into our affairs here in Scotland there is a certain relevance to what he has said with regards to this article in Ireland to us too.
It is an entirely different context sure, but the attitude, harsh as it might be, Is one that is prevalent among Unionists on this side of the water,and unpalatable as that attitude is which he expresses, It is at least more honest and direct than the language used by our own Unionists.
I might not agree with him, I might not like what he says, or what he stands for, but at least he is up front with it. There is no weasel words from the likes of him pretending to be somehow on the side of what I believe in, or of being like his Scottish counterparts Proud Scots, or blandishments of Scotland being a valued partner in the Union. All the while smiling and having photo ops proving how Scottish they are, when they do not actually think that or believe that.
It is not for the likes of him to put Northern Ireland down at every opportunity, no he talks it up, but only as part of the Greater Union. Our lot cannot help but be absolutely besides themselves with glee at every piece of bad news they can find about Scotland.
And for every piece of good news, they will either attempt to discredit it or claim that It could only be because of the good will of the Union.
Our lot are beyond the pale, using every underhanded device they can find to undermine Scotland with the complicity of our press and media. They will stoke up division, encourage sectarianism and racism, and pretend when their more dim minded followers chant racist and sectarian slogans that it is none of their doing. They will tut tut at racially aggravated assault and pretend that they have not encouraged it by their use of language.

Give me an honest bigot any day, at least there is no doubt where they stand, but the bigot who pretends that they are not, while all the while stoking up bigotry through underhand means and pretending otherwise is an even more despicable creature altogether…. and unfortunately in Scotland we have our share of them!

And Here is the News where you are

illuminating-the-debate

The Evening News
 
And here is the News where you are.
 
The Image changes, the News remains the same
 
Good Evening…. This is Reporting North Britain
 
 
It doesn’t matter what’s the headline
The news remains the same
When It comes to Scotland
We will hear the same refrain
 
Good News will never be the first thing on their mind
Bad News comes first, and never changes, every single time
 
If It’s bad, it’s worse than you’d imagine
If It’s good, there must be a bad
If it’s sad, It is lamentable
If It’s tragic, they seem glad
If It’s contrary to their wishes
Then that news you will never see
This is the news from Scotland
Find it all on the BBC
 
If you don’t buy their headline
They will analyse with themselves
This is what our reporter thinks
There’s no room for someone else
They will manipulate their pictures
All their Images are refined
Symbols flashing before your eyes
the subconscious of your mind
 
 
In the world of propaganda
The first casualty is the Truth
And if you want to hear that Scotlands bad
Get it first on the Reporting Scotland News!
