Tank Commander Colonel Roothie


Just When You think that things cannot get anymore surreal….
We now have this image of Theresa May conducting her own personal Electoral war against Scots by declaring that in Scotland this election will all be about refusing the right of the Scottish Government to call another Independence Referendum..
And here we are ….Bang on the button….. On April 17th she Instructs the Army Signal Corp to make Roothie a full blown Colonel of the Territorials…. That will fit in nicely with sending Rooth over the top into her Scottish Colony… Ably backed up by her Colonial Minister for Scotland Fluffy Mundell..

You Couldn’t make it up …Could you? Probably Not….As this is really a case of the Truth being stranger than fiction…

So lets whistle together folks to the tune of Colonel Bogey……  or as the troops sang to it in the 2nd World War… “Hitler has only got one ball”

Here Comes Roothie

April 17th

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

    Incidentally the attempt to recruit 30,000 to the Territorial Army to make up for the reduction in the regular army hasn’t worked. The can’t get enough to sign up.
    This is a good way of ensuring no one will join, and may see some leave.

  2. I’m really lost for words at this.

    I reckon they will soon get enough cannon fodder for their illegal wars,when the tories bring in conscription.

    I’ll look forward to seeing “the mooth” being sent to the front line to direct the troops in the next American led crusade in the Middle East.

    I knew her back when she was with the TA signals, it’s when I first realised what a horror she was

    She tried for a commission but didn’t even get to sandhurst, claiming a back injury, though at the time it was perceived her real problem was that she was missing a backbone; and then she became a Tory politician, quite the shocker really. Not!

    I gave Tankie Ruth the credit of having been previously commissioned when I first became aware of her “elevation” to Honorary Colonel but to find that she did not complete or even attend Sandhurst is shocking. It is an insult to those who have successfully completed the selection process & the resulting course prior to commissioning. The public quite rightly expect a high standard from our Officers & the position of Honorary Colonel is rightly highly thought of. This appears appears to cast a shadow on others appointed to this role who view it as an honour.
    I realise that previous military service is not of itself a pre-requsite for this appointment but in making this appointment the fitness of the candidate should take any military experience into account. This appears to be more of a political appointment which deserves more public exposure & examination.
