The Scottish Daily Mail is reporting today that the SNPs dream of independence is over, it is gone, never happen, finito. We can all cancel the twitter account, stop donating to Wings, pack up our tent, our independence campaign is DEAD, we can basically get to F***.
According to the Mail GERS and the collapse of Oil have turned Scotland into a worse basket case than Greece or Spain. We not only receive more money than England but we also don’t contribute as much to the UK Treasury anymore, so we need to shut up, be thankful that the English provide us with charity and get back in that box.
The Mail points out we get more spent on us than the UK average, failing to explain as usual that during the referendum it was pointed out that with only 8.4% of the population we were contributing 9.1% of taxation, roughly £1000 more per head than the rest of the UK in taxation, the myth that we are subsidised by England is a joke and one that people like Dugdale, Rennie and Davidson are all so happy to promote.
Project Too Wee Too Poor and Too Stupid is truly alive and well in the UK today and Better Together keep chipping away at our confidence and our belief in Scottish Independence. They are very afraid that the more that Scots learn about the good old United Kingdom and how it works, the more of us will want to leave.
I have a message for the Scottish Daily Mail. I am not going back in my F****** box, I am not going away, I am not going to be cowed and you will not make me afraid. I am going to do whatever I can to campaign and fight for an Independent Scotland until the day it either happens or I pop my clogs. Project Fear part two, bring it on.
