Scottish Government to adopt Tory Policy.

On the eve of the SNP conference the startling revelation that the Scottish Government is ready to apply key Tory policies has been made by a trusted authoritative source.
The senior insider has relayed the startling revelation ” Despite serious attempts to engage positively with Theresa Mays government we have been rebuffed at every avenue and this has left Nicola Sturgeon with no option but to call for a fresh Scottish referendum”

He went on to say that he expected the referendum to be called for no later than the Autumn of 2018.
He reports the following Major changes have been considered and will be made to the referendum procedures and to who is allowed to vote in it.

The Scottish Parliament will take full oversight of the referendum with the EU invited to send representatives to ensure proper procedures are followed.
Major changes will be made on the right to postal votes.
Only those who can provide evidence of permanent residency and medical certification of incapacity will be allowed a postal vote.
All those with permanent residence in Scotland will be allowed, but proof of identification will be required at polling stations.
EU citizens with permanent residence will be allowed to vote.
16-18 year olds will retain their right to vote as per last referendum.
Those that have residence elsewhere outwith Scotland will have to provide proof that their primary residence is in Scotland. Those that have residences listed as holiday homes for council tax purposes will not be able to vote from that address.
English students who are only here on a temporary basis to get the benefit of our generous higher education fees will not be allowed to vote from their term time addresses.
There will be for a first time an age limit cut off, and those that are 65plus who voted No at the last referendum will be excluded on the basis that they should not be making negative long term decisions which will impact on their children and grandchildrens future.(Loud blasts of Bob Dylans “The Times they are a changin” will be made as wake up calls every morning in senior communal accommodation.

This is in line with Tory policy at Westminster where certain citizens are to be asked to be listed by companies if they come from outwith the UK. Where the reduction of seats in non Tory areas are to the Conservatives benefit at the following General elections. Where Westminster denied all EU citizens residing in the UK the ability to vote in the EU referendum.

“It is only right and proper that if they can get away with such exclusion and gerrymandering to achieve their ends, that we can do the same thing to get what we want”
” The time is coming for Scottish Independence and rid us from unrepresentative Tory rule for good, and that time is now!”

In line with direction which current Tory/UKIP policy is taking, all Tories will be made to wear identifying blue stars on their chest, and all faux BBC English will be discouraged, and classes will have to be attended to learn how to speak proper Scots.
Phrases such as ” Haud yer wheesht ya wee bauchle” will be encouraged.

Of course in good Scottish Daily Express, Daily Mail garbage fashion….I made that all up, and the authoritative source was myself, this senior insider is most definitely now in his senior years, and I am Inside the hoose…. But hey…never let real facts get in the way of biased opinion… The Headline is All!!

Sore Elbow and all that.

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

    Some of this is good. Just a pity it won’t be legitimate policy. We need to tighten up the voting. The previous referendum was wide open to corruption.

    • Seriously yes….I fully agree.

    • Hazel Smith says:

      Definitely have to ensure it is not rigged like last time. The postal votes was a huge issue. Supervision of the whole referendum voting should be done by representatives out with the uk

      • I agree…the postal votes do need sorted out…They have to be policed more thoroughly at the very least.
        Unfortunately I just can’t see it happening in time, particularly if it is a short campaign, and most likely to be in 2018 I think.
        As for oversight from outwith the UK, most preferebaly the EU… I think this too is desirable. However, for whatever unknown reason despite many calling for the SNP to ask the EU for such oversight last time, the SNP seemed to be very reluctant to ask for such, and Indeed they refused to engage with the suggestion at all. I am baffled as to why they should have taken this attitude, but perhaps they will consider it this time. Particularly given the doubts that were expressed over the last referendum.

    This is exactly how it should be, why should English living in Scotland, for whatever reason, be allowed to vote on a ‘Scottish Matter’. Let’s hope the SNP adopt this very sensible approach to Indy2. πŸ™‚

    • I have no objection to English people who have made their life here having a vote, same applies to anyone from elsewhere that has done so…English for Scots Independence are quite vocal.
      the moment we go down the road of excluding people because of where they were born we are as bad as those xenophobes who are currently running English Tory and UKIP policy.

      • Colin says:

        You’re right of course, it’s just annoying thinking of EVEL and Upper class, well-heeled buying our land and property then voting against Indy bacause they’re not Scottish. Anyway, can of worms πŸ™‚

      • EVEL of course is another matter… Scots MPs may be banned from voting on matters which could have a knock on bearing on Scotland…but when it comes to Scottish questions in the Commons English Tory and Labour MPs can take up much of the time with senseless questions and opinions on matters pertaining to Scottish Interests…. Todays Scottish Question time being a perfect example….While SNP exclusively spoke about Brexit and the EU and asked questions for which there were no satidafactory answers from our Colonial master Fluffy Snackbeard Mundell…English Tory and Labour MPs spent most of the time talking about Scottish Independence in a negative fashion.

  4. Excellent and as I’m close to that 65 age,I found it most amusing (I’m 64,honestly),I think I look about 48,I know I’m disillusioned but I’m happy with my pills.I could go along with something along that line,but how about only SNP party members and affiliated groups have the right to vote,or vote twice.

    Just choked on my coffee there, I hope n pray part of it’s true and Nicola does decide to go for Indy part 2

    A lot of No voting Scots can now see that,actually…democracy is pretty important and can have an effect on their pocket money.
    When we as a country vote to stay in the EU and see our democratic will overruled by Royal prerogative (aka the present Tory government) in the London parliament then the game is up.
    We are not HM subjects and this must now become part of any future independence campaign.
