Its all so uncertain

It’s all so uncertain, so many unanswered questions, why wont you answer us? We demand to know!
Its an ongoing unionist mantra….Ohmmmmmmm

Why all the uncertainty? Why all the questions? Why all the spreading of doubt? Europe,The currency, borders,Nato, pensions, the economy…..the list extends out in front of us…
When they get answers, they say they have not had any, and proceed on the their merrygoround for another circuit. For some things, they ask for answers that they know cannot be answered until independence is negotiated, as much will depend on dialogue and agreements. As there are no immediate answers because such dialogue hasn’t taken place yet, they say they haven’t been answered.
They deliberately call the YES campaign the SNP, despite the involvement of other political parties and non political people making up the compliment of YES.

Of course the reason behind all these questions, is to create uncertainty, to inspire fear of the unknown, to take advantage of the fact that the majority of Scots don’t pay that much attention to politics, and are not political anoraks who will investigate claims made in the unionist media or the BBC. Folks read the headline, listen to the news, and simply accept what is told to them most of the time.

It is this climate of uncertainty that the unionist better together bunch rely on, because lets face it, they haven’t much positive to contribute.

So lets ask them the questions instead.

Will the UK parliament guarantee that we will have a seat in Europe in 5 years time?
Not a hope of that promise …There is a referendum promised with most of the right wing UK parties agitating to pull out of Europe.

Will the UK parliament promise to get rid of nuclear weapons?
Again, no chance….we are stuck with a pile of nuclear bombs in the most populated area of Scotland, as all the UK parties are wanting to invest in new war toys.

Will the Uk parliament promise us that there is no chance of the economy collapsing and the pound failing?
They may promise it wont, as they would promise anything….But lets face it..the British economy is a basket case which is Trillions in debt, and piling on £120 billion a year more debt currently.
Expect Austerity for the poorest to carry on for at least another generation! The last to feel its effects, unless there is total collapse shortly, is the richest…and when It does go belly up…they have moved all their wealth elsewhere!

Will the Uk parliament protect the NHS, and welfare state, and provide proper provision for those who cannot afford private care and treatment?
No way…They are privatising the English NHS, dismantling the Welfare state, and even privatising some police services. The poor and disabled are getting hammered! Hence all the Food banks and families going hungry, children being malnourished, and health failing.

Will the Oil run out?
Yes it will…..sometime in the next 50-100 years in the North Sea…..But we haven’t even touched our Atlantic waters, which I am given to understand from a french Oil geologist, makes the North sea oil look like a basin full in comparison…..But this has been kept quiet…..Why? .. Think McCrone Report!!
In the meantime….Its the only thing that has prevented a triple dip recession.

These are just some questions of them…

Now let them tell us…… In what way does the Union benefit and enhance Scotland?
We don’t need claptrap about why we make Britain stronger, and gives it seats at the top table of NATO etc…. In what way…is the Union really benefiting the lives of the people of Scotland that we can actually see in our daily lives? In what way can remaining in the Union help make our lives better, improve our health, our living standards, our communities, our employment prospects, our education, and the lives of our children and forthcoming generations?
Answers please…..If you have them?

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

    Thank you for this! At last, a voice of reason! Looking forward to reading more of your opinions, in the day’s to come

  2. Another good blog Rod lots of thought in there.But the but that is always there,how can it be turned around so that truth is released into the people domain?I do have trust in Alex to know when the time is right and I do expect him to drop the bomb at the right minute,its just the wait that makes some of us anxious,indeed fearful.I prefer to have the hope that it will all come out in the nick of time.

    Another great read. I am frustrated by the lack of information out there and just wish the real debate could begin with openness instead of both sides taking shots at each other about process. I have also noticed more time devoted to ‘lighthearted ribbing’ of Scotland and Scots in the media and TV programs like last week’s Have I Got News For You broadcast on BBC. We actually changed the channel because we were so offended.

    Hope you don’t mind, but I have put a link to your blog into my own because I like what you are doing and I want as many people as possible to know the truth.

    Keep up the good work 🙂
