The SNP need to stop going on about Independence

The SNP need to stop going on about Independence, and need to get on with doing their proper job in running the government. They need to start concentrating on the things that really matter like education and health. Why are they not doing this? It just simply Isn’t good enough.

Don’t the SNP realise that Scotland has spoken, and that the people of Scotland said No to Independence, the SNP need to listen to this and accept that NO means NO.

Theresa May and all the Tory and Labour leadership are fully in agreement on this. The Scottish people have no appetite for another re run of a Scottish Independence referendum.

The above is the constant mantra we hear from the Tories, Labour, and Lib Dems in the Scottish parliament and in every media they can get their convoluted message out on…which is all the media!
You have had your referendum, and NO means No, so stop agitating.

The interesting thing is that the SNP have barely mentioned the Independence word, and have been getting on with the business of running the government. Indeed, the Tories never ever stop banging on about Independence. They mention Independence with almost every statement they make.
By shouting, stop talking about Independence, they are trying to convey the impression that this is all the SNP go on about, which of course is entirely false but that doesn’t matter to them. If you create a Lie and shout about it all the time, people start to think that the lie is true. If the Tories and Labour and the LibDems are all shouting the same thing, there must be truth in it, right? Wrong…It is all deflection, a means to keep people from actually looking too closely at these parties own ineptitude.

If folks can manage the time or the inclination, it is a worthwhile exercise to look in on FMQs every week in Holyrood. Actually looking at it, and what is said, by whom it is said, and not relying on the perverse reporting of it on the North British TV news,which slants it all in the North British way.

If folks were to do that, there are a number of things that they would notice. Namely the cohesion there is between the Labour and Tory parties in the questions/complaints that they make. It would almost seem like they choreograph their questions  beforehand.
Folks would also notice that their pet complaints for the week, are simply that..complaints. There is no alternative suggestions put, nothing of positivity that might actually make things better for peoples lives. No nothing of the sort, that would entail actually coming up with policies of their own.

After the Brexit vote, for one short moment in time, all these opposition parties in Scotland actually decided to agree that Nicola Sturgeon should endeavour to find some sort of way through the Brexit mess, and to try and examine all avenues and solutions to find a way to keep Scotland in the EU, up to and including Independence if all else failed.
After all, all these Scottish branches of the British parties had voted to Remain, and this was the confirmed will of the Scottish people too, with every region and with a winning percentage of 62% of Scotland wanting to Remain.

Unfortunately such consensus to work together towards that end was short lived, and it was not long before the Scottish branch leaders of the Conservatives, Labour and Lib Dems were told to get back in their box, and to forget about such a fanciful Idea as Scotland somehow independently remaining, and to get back to their day job of slagging the SNP off.

It soon became abundantly clear that Theresa May and her government had no Intention of including the “Regions” in the main Brexit talks when they come about and no alternatives were to be allowed to a full English Brexit, and so Increasingly the final solution from a Scottish perspective is now being prepared but not actioned as yet, that of Scottish Independence.

When Article 50 is triggered, possibly early next year, it is at that point that the Tories and Labour and LibDem leadership can with some justification start shouting about the SNP going on about Independence because by then their collective fears will have come true and Scotland will again be having another referendum.

Perhaps by then the Scottish Tories will have figured out what Brexit is, and wont need to ask the SNP what it is.

Perhaps by then…All of Scotland will have decided that enough is enough in this broken union, and leave the British Separatists to cut themselves off from the rest of the World while Scotland gets back on.

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

  1. The people of Scotland gave a ‘CONDITIONAL NO’ in 2014 referendumt, as well they know. When the UK Establishment FULLY honour their pledge to the people of this country over Devo-Max / Federalism then and ONLY then can they expect to have the 2014 result respected.

    Until then… game on.

    PS – it’s not just the political parties that are at this: http://imgur.com/7OKySfV

    I have been saying this since the grand unionist coalition have been streaming this tripe since they were given direction from their divisional commanders by the Londinium establishment. The three Scottish stooges are having their strings manipulated and coordinated by the unionist money men via their hired help in the MSM, EBC, MI5, MI6 et al. The three head rats in the Scottish Union gangs will then have fulfilled their only purpose by betraying their own country and delivering it into the hands of the con men.
    They will then turn on the Scottish people prior to returning to attacking each other although they are all in the same unionist anti Scottish gang. They will sell their granny for a step up the greasy pole, dispicable individuals.
    Then they will go back to pretending they are different political parties with different ultimate goal. United Kingdom of ENGERLAND.

    The contract signed and published on the front page of the daily record the “VOW” in return for the citizens of Scotland voting “NO” and remaining in the Union was the essence of the contract, Has the contract been fulfilled in its essential elements “NO” Any court in the land the said contract would be deemed unfulfilled and therefore null & void , therefore the result of the vote is also null & void and a second vote should be held , anything complicated about that ? it appears pretty straightforward , you do this and we will do that ,if either side fails to keep their end of the bargain “NO” deal its that simple so where is the bleedn problem , eh RUTH – KEZIA – BBC etc .

    All the talk about Independence come from The Tories and their Cohorts,the so called Labour party.
    Just admit it you both support the UK Governments cuts as”Labour ” just sat on their hands and kept their mouths shut when the time came to vote.How does that happen Labour. You are suppose to be the opposition.
