So three days into the worst decision ever taken by people in Scotland, we have Gordon Brown calling for unity.
The more I think about it the more I am not interested in unity with anyone who voted no, I am certainly not interested in any unity with anyone from the Labour Party, comrades with Tories and millionaires, acting in the best interests of Labour and the other Tory Parties.
Gordon Brown, Jim Murphy, Ed Miliband and Johann Lamont had unity with Farage, Cameron, Clegg, the BNP, Orange Order, racists and bigots. That is their kind of unity. That is the Britain they stood up for against a campaign that wanted social justice, who wanted to protect the poor and vulnerable, who wanted to maintain vital public services, who wanted to change Scotland into a proper inclusive democracy, that is the unity I want to be a part of.
As we have seen, just 3 days after the vote, Miliband and Labour are already putting barriers forward to stop change. They have already started to campaign for power next year, conference has started so it’s comrade this, comrade that. Oh by the way at conference they are saying Labour won the referendum, did they? Douglas Alexander is thanking the paid volunteers from England who came up to Scotland to tell lies and spread fear, that is their kind of unity.
But in fairness to Gordon Brownstuff he does have a point, unity is a good thing. In fact I would go as far as saying unity can be a vital thing. So my alternative plea for unity to everyone who voted YES is:
At next year’s General Election let us all unify in a campaign to get rid of as many Labour MPs from Scotland as possible. Let’s unify to get the message across to London and the vested interest that we, the 45%, are not going away. That we will continue to fight for social justice and equality, that we will not bow down to the lies and fear of the various Tory Parties and their racist and bigoted chums.
Let’s unify and send as many SNP MPs to Westminster as possible next year, if we can send even 30 they might actually hold the balance of power. Although given how bad and unelectable Ed Miliband actually is, it is just a might hold the balance of power. But it is important that we send a clear message to right-wing Britain and the three Tory Parties that we are here to stay, we are a new movement and we are strong. We will not bow down, we will not go away, we will not scrape. We will stand tall and we will never give in to the greed, to the fear and to the abandonment of the poor and vulnerable.
