Scotland would be better off in the UK. So there we have it..No need for the referendum folks..It’s all been done and dusted and decided for us. And what’s more, it only took three hours to come to this conclusion. It was a decisive and overwhelming vote at that too. The result was 334-5. So that wasn’t just a defeat..it was a total gubbing! The YES side only got 1.47% of the vote. Truly magnificent achievement for the NO side.
But how come? Surely even the meanest of opinion polls have been giving the YES side at least 30% of the vote at this time? What could have gone so utterly and catastrophically wrong?
with even the British Government telling the world that the North Sea has the potential to be the Worlds Global Energy hub,and massive investments pouring in at unprecedented rates..surely the outlook for Scottish Independence is indeed rosy..even if the NO campaign have been busy shouting that It’s all running out again. How can this be? What should have caused such a catastrophic defeat for Independence?
Perhaps if we look where this vote took place, it all becomes much clearer. It was a three hour debate today in the House of Commons. In that three hours..Scotland took one hell of a beating, with only Pete Wishart of the SNP allowed a ten minute speech, being howled down by a rowdy bunch of jackals. Which gave the other mob…2hours and 50minutes to hurl abuse.
As Stewart Hosie has unfortunately had to take time off due to a mini stroke..The SNP were reduced in number form 6-5. Not that even the redoubtable Mr Hosie could have altered this result had he been fit and well.
But given that the meanest polls give Independence 30%…What does this result tell us? It tells us one thing, which we already knew…The vast majority of MPs at Westminster are totally out of touch with the wishes of the people of Scotland.
And it also begs a question…What the hell did they think they were achieving by having such a debate at this time? Or even at all, for that matter.
The people of Scotland will decide what we want, whether they like it or not.
