British Copyright

Who has the copyrite of being British?
The Unionists have been making a big play on Britishness for ages, and Into overdrive mode since the Independence referendum became a reality.
Union Jacks here,Union Jacks there, here a Union jack, there a Union Jack, everywhere a Union Jack!
The Royal weddings, The Queens Jubilee, The Olympics…It has been one massive Jack fest!
They have been handing out Union Jacks in their millions. Please wave them as much as you can, and as long as you can.

A good part of the reason for all the Jack waving has been to say,How Great it is to be British!
When anyone with any modicum of sense and knowledge of even recent history, know full well, that despite all their jingoism, being British aint that Great at all!
The Uk is in one hell of a mess, and getting much worse for the vast majority of us, by the day.

It has all been a gluttony of pagentry,and procession, and propaganda that Pravda or Goebbels would have been proud of.

It has been a massive exercise in misdirection for the gullible.
The idea being to make the people forget the shit they are living with on a daily basis..
The Olympics were a Godsend for them, particularly with British athletes doing much better than expected of them. So we could all bask in their success, by association, and feel good about being British.

The other reason being to persuade those doubting pesky Scots, that they really would be better voting against Independence, or Separatism as they prefer to call it.
Better together and all that!

If any of our daily lives actually reflected Royalty or Olympic athletes, then they might have a sliver of a point.
But the fact of the matter being, that none of us live our lives continually in such a rarefied atmosphere. We get the crap end of the stick.
GB is broke, we are paying the price of their mismanagement, lost jobs, cut backs, lost homes, loss of income and living standards.
And we are promised much more of the same medicine for at least a further decade, when we need not have it!

The Unionists have been telling us all sorts of lies. Nothing new there!
We will not get into Europe, when we are already there!
Europe recognises us as being in Europe already, and even when we end the Union, we are still a constituent part which joined in the first place. One with the most natural resources In the EU !
And they are going to kick us out? Aye Right!

They tell us that when we leave, we will no longer be British!
Oh really?
So Britain is not a geographical Island mass?
Norwegians, and Finns, and Swedes, are all Scandinavians. Scots will still be British,even once we call an end to the political union.

If Scotland is no longer British, then neither Is England or Wales.
As much as they have for 300 years tried to tell us that Britain is England and England Is Britain…It is not the case.
They do not have the copyright on being British.
And we are not separating from Britain, unless of course we have a new Ice Age and the Iapetus ocean physically separates us again.

I have every confidence that when we put an end to this unequal political union in 2014, that our neighbours will survive as neighbours without much difficulty. Even if most of their population will by then wish they were Scottish.
And there will be no need for sticking dynamite down the Iapetus fault, and quite literally separating Britain, as they would like us to believe we are.

We will live and let live, and we will still be British as well as Scottish. Only without that blooming Union Jack to wave about on command.

About auldacquaintance

I am not a member of any political party. I am however a strong supporter of Scots Independence. Any views which I express in this Blog are purely my own. This Blog intends to be a place where I will be putting my views on Scots Independence. It will primarily concern itself with the upcoming Referendum In Scotland. However It will also be somewhat diverse in the range of day to day issues which are evident to me in modern day Scotland. Not all of it will be political, and indeed may take me off into avenues I am not even aware of yet. Please come and join in on this journey, and any comments are welcome provided they are not abusive! All the best from a new acquaintance! Rod

  1. The Scandinavian analogy is an entirely sensible and appropriate one to make. Just because the island of Britain would be divided into two or more nations-states doesn’t mean it ceases to be a geographical or historical entity. Any more than a Europe of nation-states ceases to be Europe (or European).

    Scandinavia is a recognised European region divided into several nation-states and sub-national states.

    Iberia is a recognised European region divided into several nation-states and sub-national states.

    The Balkans are a recognised European region divided into several nation-states and sub-national states.

    The Low Countries are a recognised European region divided into several nation-states and sub-national states.

    Britain in turn will be a recognised European region divided into several nation-states and sub-national states.

    That is the European norm rather than the abnormal and seems likely to be increasingly so in the future.

    The Union Jack is a badge of shame. Visit any former colonial country and learn about what the Union jack means to them and you will understand that other than some English people and a small small amount in Scotland and the rest of the UK this flag is a flag of shame for most and of privilege to others. I can’t stand the sight of it personally.
