Next year the United Kingdom (England) will commemorate(celebrate) the start of World War 1. Now how sick is that, does this country, or a certain part of it, have no shame. 20 million people died and 21 million people were wounded, 20 MILLION PEOPLE DIED. Nearly 100,000 Scots were killed in battle and Cameron with his pals in the Liberalservative and Labourservative Parties want to celebrate. Rough estimates indicate that the UK(England) will spend 55 million pounds on this celebration so it will be closer to 100 million. Add in 100+ million for the jubilee, billions on the Olympics and 8 million on the Thatcher party political broadcast and we could have stopped all the cuts, redundancies etc.
The Sunday Times yesterday noted that David Beckham will replay the match against Germany in no mans land, England v Germany that is. Given that we are all English as Michael Moore (Scottish Overlord and Liberal) has told us I suppose we shouldn’t mind. Glasgow Cathedral will be the focus of the celebration, the Queen will attend, Cameron and his minions Miliband and Clegg will attend, and 4 weeks before the referendum. So as well as being sick in the first place, they are using the Scottish dead to promote their fear agenda and the waving of the most disgusting flag in the World, the Union Jack. Better Together, yeah right.
Now before anyone has a go at me, yes I know the SNP Government are commemorating the event also and given the actions of England (sorry the UK Government) they probably feel they have no choice. Doesn’t make it right.
We should remember those killed in wars, but at the end of the war, NOT the beginning. My own father, sadly deceased, fought in World War 2 but he never celebrated it, he rarely talked about it and was as long as I knew him anti-war, anti-Labour/Conservative and reflected that it was the poor man who became soldiers in the main and the poor man who died in the main. These events next year are sick, I don’t care what anyone says. To celebrate the beginning of a war that killed 20 MILLION PEOPLE is sick, to start this in Scotland before the most important vote in our lifetime is sick. Britain (England) will be shoved down our throats, the Union Flag will be shoved down our throats, the Queen will be shoved down our throats, Better Together will be shoved down our throats, too wee too poor too stupid and too defenceless will be shoved down our throats.
The United Kingdom is sick, it’s broken and Cameron, Miliband, Clegg, Lamont, Davidson, Rennie and Moore can shove it. I WANT NO PART OF IT AND NOT IN MY NAME. Here is a thought, not a unique thought, but one all the same. When Cameron takes us into Syria so he can have his war too, and when Miliband and the rest support him, lets make sure the bastards are on the front line first.
