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.
