After last nights second and final tv debate before the referendum, it was announced by the pollsters and just about everybody else that has commented that Alex Salmond clearly won it. It wasn’t so much as a win as a trouncing, but perhaps the clued up audience had something to do with that too, they were not sitting back without a murmur, they challenged and they won!
So what has been the response today?
The tv companies have been playing it down for all their worth, you wont see a clip of a lady in the audience ripping Darling a new one over his private health care interests. The Naw politicians are still saying that they still don’t know what’s Salmonds Plan B. If they are genuinely that thick, then the UK really do have something to worry about!
We don’t have the answers they bleat, well they do, it is just that no answer would ever satisfy them that amounted to Scotland going it’s own way.
Meanwhile in the newspaper column sections their trolls are in a frenzied overdrive, they obviously see the writing is on the wall.
Here is a selection of how much they love us!
“Please vote “YES”. We in England want to be rid of Scotland once and for all. Just take Alex Salmond with you.”
“Please let Scotland go on their own and stop them infecting England with their banality and profligacy.For God’s sake GO!!!”
“As long as I can still buy M&S haggis, they can take a running jump!”
“The Scots may vote yes but they won’t get independence. The English will not allow an independent country on their border.”
“I hear Salmons resorting to offering a deep fried Mars bar and a bottle of Buckfast to all those who vote for independence.”
“Slimy Salmond, any Scot who listens to this man must be a sandwich short of a picnic basket, as for the pound, well just lets say that the Scottish pound is like Monopoly money south of the border there are not many shopkeepers who will take it, the last time I came home from Scotland I got that fed up of shopkeepers refusing Scottish money I finished up having to go to my bank and changing into real money. Anyway if they do decide to stay with the rest of us then a short sharp lesson on what the rest of us give to them would be in order just to show them what they would be missing if they ever try do this again. stop all subsidy’s that we give them for five years let them stand on there own two feet ,because I am sick to the back teeth of the ever moaning Scots, not all of them admittedly telling everyone that they are not subsidized to high heaven when its clear to a blind man that they are.”
Well there you have it folks, don’t you just feel that Lurve….
The sad thing is that this sort of tripe can be found every single day in all the comments sections of the newspapers, the Mail being one of the worst, but hair curling in all of them,particularly the Scotsman..
Sad isn’t it? Yet this is exactly the sort of divided UK we live in now, and it is not going to get any better.
Time to amicably part ways I think.
