Tris over at Munquin’s New Repulic has posted a couple of blogs the last couple of days about our impending war with Spain over Gibraltar (according to the former Tory Leader Michael Howard) due to the EU giving Spain a veto over any trade deal as a result of the dispute with Great Britain over Gibraltar and the horrific near murder of a teenage boy in London whose crime was to not be English, and I assume white.
I remember when a veto was a good thing, a funny thing, a thing the British loved,
In fairness to the UK, and the people who live in Gibraltar, the EU are wrong to give Spain a veto over the rock as Spain were wrong to threaten to veto an independent Scotland joining the EU in my opinion, but what goes around comes around as they say given that Spain is now saying it won’t veto an independent Scotland joining the EU.
Also slipping under the radar were these two gems:
What a truly disgusting country we live in, as some work up the natives with hate towards refugees and asylum seekers and to Spain, to the point they are ready to go to war with one of our closest allies, when they beat a poor boy near to death who came to this country for protection the Government sneek out another wee 4 Billion attack of their own on the most vulnerable and poorest people in the country, this country has not only lost all sense of irony but of decency, morals, truth, honour, the list goes on and on now. This United Kingdom surely is now a disgusting sesspit of hate in some parts, more than it’s ever been before.
All of these stories got me thinking about the next independence referendum and what happens if it’s another NO vote. Is there any forgiving another NO vote? There were reasons the last time, well lies and threats masquerading as reasons, to vote NO the last time, but there is no hiding place this time is there. Enough people know they were lied to the last time, enough people should know the truth by now.
As far as I am concerned the United Kingdom is descending into a right wing nightmare that shows no sign of abating anytime soon. Scotland will have to make a decision, the most important decision we will ever make in our lifetimes. We get another chance, irrespective of what Theresa May says or Governor General Mundell say, to take our futures and those of our children into our own hands and the answer has to be YES.
To any older readers who might come across this by accident, the next time don’t think about yourself, or the pension you think you will get, think about the children and young people in your families and in your communities, we have a chance to leave them something better, something decent, something inclusive, something to hope for. A no vote the next time is a vote for never ending Tory rule and never ending darkness. I have said it before, England is on a journey that we cannot and must not follow, we can’t save them but we can save ourselves.
With the United Kingdom becoming something even more horrible every day, and I know it’s not all people down South or in other parts of the UK, I also know that given how I feel right now there might be no forgiving another no vote for myself, we know the truth, we see the injustice, and the hate in the UK every day, and too many people are victims of it, we have got to make a different choice, we only get one more chance. Think about it, seriously, think about your decision very very carefully.
