Watching and reading and listening to the British media and press in recent times has been nothing but sheer entertainment in a perverse sort of way..
Is there nothing they will hesitate to say about Scots and Scots National MPs in particular? Is no slander or libel profane enough for them? Is there no slur which is beyond the pale? It would appear not.
The more the polls show the projected SNP vote standing firm, the more into hysterics the Westminster politicians go into, and the more rabid become the newspaper headlines.
They dont hesitate on political tv slots to call the projected Scots vote for the SNP Illegitimate. We cannot have the Scottish tail wagging the English dog they shout.
We cannot have these ” Extremists” having a say in running our country they cry.
As they collectively scream and pull their hair out, they just cannot begin to comprehend why Scottish public opinion appears to be so decisively against them?
The English based political parties are having epileptic seizures at the mere prospect of having to talk to these Natsi hordes after May 7th… How very dare these Scots mutant people vote in such numbers for political representation that will represent their voice rather than compliant monkeys from the authorised British establishment parties, who know how to play the game, hoover up their expenses and do nothing to rock the boat.
(Woops…did you see what I did there? I used one of Boris Johnstons animal metaphors)
Why wont these Scots just do as they are told? Have they so entirely forgotten their place?
Worse still… the latest polling with 10 days to go show the SNP in a poll today as standing at 54% of the electorate who have commited to vote..
Arghh….that stuffs up their tactical voting wheeze big style if it stretches across the board.
So what to do when nothing that has always worked before doesn’t seem to be working?
The only answer is simple in their minds….More of the same…much more..More Mud, More Fear, More Slander, More False Stories, More More More terrifying pensioners out of their wits!
Expect much much more of this in the last week…..You will be horrified.
As for the big leads in the polls.. Well ignore them too.
The only poll that counts is on May the 7th..
Until then….Save the triumphalism, take Nothing for granted, and do as you have been doing…. Listening to everything, reading and watching everything, and do it all with a pinch of salt..
Focus on what you want.. Focus on how you would like to be represented. Focus on having hope rather than being paralyzed by fear.
And mostly….Get out there and make sure Scotland for once really makes a difference.
