When NO means Never

We have a new prime minister who seems to be channeling her internal Maggie Thatcher, or so that is how she seems to have begun.
First of all on her announcement of being the new PM , her initial address outside Downing street had a feel of Maggies twisted plagiarism of the Thomas Aquinas speech.

Her first actions were to take a machete to the old Tory cabinet, and in a manner which could be described as both decisive or ruthless, she shaped her first cabinet as being the most right wing cabinet in Tory history.

She proclaimed … “brexit means brexit” …. whatever the word brexit means, as it is not a word to be found in the dictionary as yet. But we all knew what she meant alright, as she confirmed that despite her supposedly being on the soft remain side during the EU referendum, she was definitely now firmly in the exit camp…and what is more, she intended that to mean for the whole of the UK, with no exceptions!

When May met Sturgeon, she was more than happy to say that of course Scotland would be welcome to be part of the Brexit negotiations, but there is no doubt that what she means by that, is that we can have an input in leaving, not as Nicola Sturgeon might wish, to find a way where rUK can exit and Scotland remain…. That is never going to happen… Not on Mays watch. One out All out!

Which leads us to Mays first Prime Ministers Questions….her put down of Jeremy Corbyn was classic Maggie….so much so, that with her mannerisms and lowering of voice…..I had the horror feeling of Maggie come back from the dead and taking demonic possession of May.

And of course….the Trident debate..
When asked by the SNPs George Keravan if she would authorise the use of this terrible weapon of mass destruction to kill 100,000 Innocent men, women, and children? without a seconds pause….she shot back “Yes” . No ifs no buts, no thought, no hesitation…..simply and decisively “YES”
Now…that is seriously scary, and shows how utterly ruthless and homicidal this PM is prepared to be.
To compound that worry….Labour are no opposition whatsoever, and are more intent on their own internal squabbles as they rip what was left of their soul out of the party .
70% of the Labour MPs voted against their own leader and sided with May and the Tories, leaving the SNP to be the main party of opposition to this government.

And then came the announcement that the 13 frigate orders which had been promised at the time of the Scottish Indy referendum, which had been reduced to 8 after it, were now going to be postponed indefinitely.

STRIKE 1… Indefinite Tory Rule
STRIKE3.. Trident Renewal
STRIKE4 …. Shipbuilding orders

How much material change of circumstance is required before Scotland decides enough is enough and we go our own way?

According to May and her government… not only does Brexit mean Brexit, but Scotland has had its say on Independence, and that issue is decided and done with. She is a One Nation Tory…and her idea of being One Nation is to hold onto ALL that she has got, with Scotland not a country but part of her Nation.
Scottish Independence?  No means NO, and No means Never.

I have got news for her…. We intend to make her NO mean YES, and YES means Forever

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

    No means no chance,but as underdogs we will turn that to yes and bye bye,UK.Now I thought that UK was a union of crowns,not,NOT the political union.Still when they get it wrong they need us to show them the way.

  2. We must educate those no voters let them see the truth,if they haven’t already realised it for themselves.Just got to concur with all of the above.

    My concern about Indy2 is that many of the No voters last time used the Better Together B/S arguments as a justification for covering their embedded prejudices..
    As we now know,there would never have been a need for plan B on currency etc etc.
    When you are dealing with this sort of attitude,no amount of reasoned arguments will win the day.
    Let’s just hope,for traditional Labour voters anyway,that the prospect of being completely at the mercy of England’s Tories and probably for a very long time,will be enough to persuade them to change their minds.
    We couldn’t,even in a million years,make a bigger hash of things than England’s Tory governments have done.
    Up to the eyeballs in debt,cutting public services to be able to afford useless military hardware,turning their back on the biggest trading block in the world without any sort of plan about how that is going to work and so on.
    A total disaster.
