If you fly with the craws, you’ll get shot with the craws, In effect,you shall be judged by the company that you keep.
Well,without doubt It is clear now to the people of Scotland,if it wasn’t before, that Labour, Tory and Libdems have effectively merged together as one party.
So lets just call them the Unionist Party for simplicities sake.
The Unionist party have even coined their mantra, Stronger Together,Weaker Apart.
This mantra is has been getting a regular airing by all of them in the past week,but please do expect this political hybrid of a party to be regurgitating this these words endlessly between now and the referendum in 2014.
They believe that if they repeat it often enough,and at regular intervals, it will actually become true. No doubt they will manage to convince some poor unsuspecting souls of its veracity, but the success of this tactic will solely depend on their ability to sow confusion,disinformation, and kick up a hooley of a noise, to prevent people from thinking for themselves.
Information and Knowledge among the people is an anathema to them. Information and Knowledge means power,and God help them if the Nation is informed and knowledgeable,for they are then empowered to come to their own conclusions.
While they chant their mantra like a bunch of demented Hari Krishna Monks,except without the naive happy charm, what they will not do, Is explain in any real detail how they have come to this wonderful revelation.
They may mutter things like Scots have more representation In Europe as part of the UK. They will tell us that should scotland be stupid enough to exit the UK, that the representation we currently enjoy of 29 will drastically reduce to 7, therefore we will have much less say in the big decisions. But what they will not tell us, Is that 7 is considerably more than Scotland has at the moment,and it is they who will actually be disadvantaged by losing representation, or that for instance, Scotland which has the largest white fish fleet in Europe,is currently represented by a British English farmer, with as much knowledge of fishing as I have of quantum mechanics! .Our own expert Scottish Fisheries Minister is not allowed to represent us. Nor will they tell us we will have the same representation as Ireland or Denmark and other similar sized countries. No, that just would not do.
They may tell us that we will lose our representation on NATO, and be sidelined in the UN. When what they really mean Is that they will lose their seat on Nato,particularly once we kick out the Nuclear Garbage which we have sitting in the Holy Loch. We are not interested in being America or anyone elses Special Friend, we are happier making friends throughout the world, not bombing the hell out of places for Oil and Power games.
They may tell us like Georgey Boy Osbourne hinted at yesterday, that we may not be allowed to continue with the pound,if we chose to do so,and may be forced to join the euro. What, he didn’t actually say was that he doesn’t have the power to deny us staying with the pound. The pound was the original Euro currency created on the establishment of the Union, and we are equal shareholders.There would have to be negotiations if we wished to stay with it, but they cannot kick us out of it,nor deny us. We may of course choose another course of action,such as joining another currency block like the Kroner, or we may even set our own currency, or we may eventually choose to join the euro if it stabilises. The choice is ours, not theirs.
They may tell us like Michael Gove did today, that we might not have the Health Service, which is really quite amusing, as we have had an Independent NHS in Scotland for years,and is nothing to do with their Health service which they are currently privatising to hell.
They may tell us that we will have border posts, and need a passport to visit our English family and friends,but wont tell us why there is no border posts between Northern and the Republic of Ireland, nor that as part of the EEC,we have open borders.
when they say Stronger Together, Weaker Apart, what they really mean, Is that they are stronger with Us, and weaker without Us. They are a virtual basket case,we are relatively secure,with or without oil. But much more so with,and we have 90% of that,with some Gas thrown in.
In actuality, We are weaker together,and Stronger Apart from rump Uk.
Our share of the debt is 8%, and counted in Billions, Theirs is massive and counted in Trillions.
We can easily manage our small nation very profitably,and If you read the McCrone report,It will tell you how, and exposes the Lies told to us. It may be 30 years old, but the same Issues are still relevant,and the same conclusion inescapable.
I will leave you with a bit of humour.
In yesterdays debate in the Scottish Parliament, Johann Lamont compared Alex salmond to Moses, In that he had led his people to the promised land, only that he was standing there refusing to lead them in, Not Yet he says,said she.
The joke backfired, Alex Salmond is better than Moses, Moses lead his people to the only land in the Middle East, Not to have any Oil!
Alex Salmonds Promised Land is overflowing with it!
Much more Investments by these Multi nationals, opening more fields,and investing in more exploration, But then of course the Unionist Party only tells us that they are frightened to Invest, because of the uncertainty of a Referendum. Bunkum.
But never mind such painful realities, we have the Unionist Mantra to keep us lull us to sleep.
