David Cameron Prime Minister ‘”You cannot let the people who want to break up our country into the government of our country.”
I have been following some of the hysterics of the last week since the Ashcroft Polls predicted the end of the world, otherwise known as the SNP getting 50 seats and therefor being in a position of influence at Westminster. Now forgive me if I’m wrong, but don’t we live in a democracy! weren’t Westminster desperate for Scotland to stay. Our contribution to British life was too important for it to be lost to the narrow minded nationalism of the wrong kind, England would be diminished without the Scots.
Oh how times change, the world is going to come to an end because Scottish people might just be deciding to use their democratic vote, within the United Kingdom, to send SNP MPs to Westminster to represent their interests. The Conservative / Labour democratic stitch up of the last 100 years or so might just be getting a big wake up call. The people might just vote SNP, Green, UKip, Plaid but not Liberal, Conservative or Labour in sufficient numbers to maintain their absolute power. Oh how my heart bleeds.
No voters must be very proud today knowing that Westminster really only wanted your money and your resources. Your opinion, as has always been the case, does not matter and must in no way influence British politics in any shape or form. How dare you vote in any other way than you have been told. How dare you think that you can influence British and English politics. How dare you have an opinion and reject what you are told is in your best interests from the elite 1% who run this country.
Now I don’t think that the SNP can get anything like 50 seats in May, be wonderful if they did, but first past the post tends to not allow this even with large swings, and I also suspect that the Unionist parties, and in particular the unionist media and BBC, are about to unleash the hounds of hell on Scottish voters, as they did during the referendum. The British Elite State knows no bounds when it comes to defending their own narrow privileged interests.
However, Cameron’s comments, and some of those by Labour, really just annoy the crap out of me because they highlight the total contempt that these people have for Scotland, for Scottish people, and for Democracy in general. Those voters who voted no were well and truly lied to, cheated, conned, deceived etc. There are many words to describe what took place during the referendum and what is about to take place now, some unionists won’t care but I suspect that many of the narrow no voters will, but I have no sympathy for you at all, sorry. You were warned what would happen, even by unionists like Andrew Neil on the BBC, you were warned.
55% of voters made the bed that we all now have to lay on, now do you see what your no vote meant. You were that important to Britain, but only until you gave them your vote, now you mean nothing.
A wee side issue. The SNP need to forget all the talk of a balance of power, and stop listening to the media about a balance of power. I think the SNP need to concentrate all of their efforts on winning as many seats as they can at Westminster and worry about the rest later. The referendum showed the lengths that Unionists will go to to maintain what they believe is theirs, lets not fall into the same trap.
