It’s how I feel, I don’t apologise for it!

I am nearing 49 years old, in so many ways I am surprised I got this far, I’m from Dundee and survived Thatcher’s desolation of Scotland, many didn’t. But the older I get the more I am becoming intolerant, I’m not moving to the right though like so many are alleged to do when they get to that certain age.

You see I really am at the point where I actually HATE the UK, or Great Britain, or shitty little country is how I think of it. I don’t understand how 55% of voters in Scotland could have voted against their own independence in favour of a country that cares little for them, unless they are a part of their clique or have something to serve the few. I can’t stand the Tories, they are a party full of entitlement and hate, and as we have learned over the years, so are Scottish Labour and the Scottish Liberal Democrats. I know that these parties have yes voters within their membership but how can you be a member of a party that goes against your belief in such a big way, I tried it and couldn’t.

I have blogged, not as well as others, but I have blogged about the injustices of this country and it’s not just now, this country (UK) has always been up its own arse, some parts of it more than others. To my mind too many are too easily influenced by people who could not give a shit about them. Do you really think the Tories and the other yoons care about you, I don’t. Many within the YES movement, and especially the organised part of it, hate the word quisling (a traitor who collaborates with an enemy force occupying their country), but the more I hear from the ultra yoons and read things from the yoon media like David Torrance, Sinclair, I can’t escape the fact that this is how I feel and I don’t feel the need to apologise for it anymore. I appreciate many will not agree, and will find the word offensive, but how can you explain people like Davidson, Rennie, Dugdale, Sarwar, Baillie, Carlow, Fraser, Tompkins, Marra. How can you get past the fact that it is what it is and they are basically agents of a foreign government doing their bidding to maintain their colony, the older I get the more I can’t get past that.

Look around you, look at the rise in foodbanks, the poverty, the inequality, stagnant wages and draconian employment practices. This from a state who profess that their main duty is to protect their citizens but who are in fact doing the attacking to their most vulnerable citizens, and least able to defend themselves. How can that be decent, how can that be right, how can you support that and even vote for it because let’s be honest, a NO vote was a vote to give this shitty state of affairs your endorsement. You see the more intolerant and angry I get the more I think about this clip from Trainspotting It’s Shite Being Scottish, not politically correct, but you know what, how far off is it most days now.

When you hear the total shit that is being spouted every single day by the yoons how can you not get angry. When you read that even more of their promises or f vows are being broken, how can you stand by and continue to accept that, continue to excuse it, to make some reason out of it, I can’t. How can you go to a polling booth and vote for a party that supports a union that gives 1.5 billion pounds to bigots to cling to power, there is no excusing that, rationalizing that, it is shameful and that is the fact of it. How can you sit back and accept the increasingly aggressive language used by yoons like parking tanks on lawns, and not be offended by it. When you see what the Spanish Government is doing to Catalonia do you think the yoons won’t celebrate in the streets with the troops if the Tories did it here, they would all be volunteering to join up and if that doesn’t make you ashamed nothing will.

Some people have said to me that they have seen a change in this blog, that the language is more choice, that my view is less tolerant, that I am not helping the YES cause. I never said I was helping the YES cause and if the state of this country doesn’t make a YES voter angry then I really don’t know what will and as I said, I am not going to apologise for how I feel. Every second that Scotland is a colony of the United Kingdom is an embarrassment, and if you don’t agree we are a colony you are wrong, we are. I make no apologies for hating the United Kingdom and all that it stands for, I make no apologies for hating the three Tory Parties and the harm that they have inflicted on this country, and on other countries, in the name of their superiority and their sense of entitlement. Hate is a horrible word but that is what they have brought me too, when I see what they do and how people support it in ignorant and not ignorant numbers how can you not hate it.

      I really am becoming more and more intolerant of Tories and yoons , they are a disgusting bunch of ass holes and I am beyond apologising for how I feel now.

    What can I say, you hit the nail on the head. It is hard to stay in a diplomatic frame of mind when your opponents are hell bent on destroying you and your social world, knowing they are destroying their world too but belligerent to the last. Quisling is a strong word, but unfortunately true of Scottish Unionists and their brainwashed thought processes. Quisling is the only word for those who spare not a thought for their country or fellow countryman. Quisling is the right word.
    Thank you putting into words my frustrations when trying to understand what a Scottish Unionists actually is

    Thank you Bruce.

      I am just getting more and more frustrated at the ignorance and selfishness of too many no voters and the treason of those like Torrance and the unionist politicians and I don’t know other words to describe them. Knowing what they know and yet still doing what they do makes them vile in my eye and it is really disgusts me.

    I completely understand your frustration. I have come to hate symbols of Britishness, funny to think that away back at the start of the referendum campaign I was a likely No voter!

    It’s a reflection on where we are at in this crap union that the Yes side have to always watch what we say and do, while the Yoons can say and do whatever the hell they want. Particularly in our “newspapers” and television.

      I am beyond watching what I say anymore, I won’t be abusive but I won’t sugar coat things in the hope of convincing one NO voter, that is the job of the YES movement which I am not a part of. If people don’t like my honesty I don’t care, I hate their attacks on the poorest and most vulnerable in our communities and I find the Tories of all parties and committed NO voters offensive as so called human beings, end of and I am not apologising for it anymore.

    I too have reached a point where I find it hard to be civil to unionists, and impossible if they are also Conservative voters.
    The U.K. Government is shaping up to crush Scotland by any means necessary to prevent independence.
    They are looking at Spain, and thinking “that’s what we will do”, and far to many Scots will be happy to help them. These people are either deluded, part of the elite or ignorant bigots. Whatever, they sure really anti Scottish scum.
    Well said Bruce.

      They are, you are so right. No voters and don’t knows have all the information they need to make an informed choice, if they choose Britain over Scotland then hell mend them and I am not going to waste my time on them. I will say it as it is without being abusive and if they don’t like it I don’t care. I have had enough of unionists and Tories, Thatcher was enough for me and I will rot in hell before I give these people the time of day anymore, enough is enough, how much more are so called Scots will ing to take and put up with. I am at the end of the line now, f them, it’s how I feel. Anyone who supports what the Tories, helped by the other Tories in Labour and the Fibdems, are doing can shove it.

    Old is very relative. From where I am just now you are young. I enjoyed your honest blog and had no problem with your use of language. If we can’t be honest then what can we be?
    I despair at the indifference, ignorance and worst of all ‘we are British’ lot too but through it all the fight for victory continues and I remain optimistic we will prevail.

      I too remain optimistic and I must admit, even before I really understood what was what, I never ever felt British. I didn’t get the Royal thing and I have always hated the Tories since Thatcher, how Labour and Liberal members could vote for them to defend their precious union is absolutely beyond me, how thick is that. A country that could not give a shit about them and whom are hurting their families, and their communities, and their loyalties lie with the butchers apron, what a joke. I am beyond being nice to those people anymore. Those days are well gone.

    Once again i find my self in total agreement with you. I sometimes wonder if yoonism is akin to a hybrid of the Milgram expriment and the Stanford experiment, but like yourself I am seldom that charitable these days.

      Those are gone for me now, the yoons really are suffering from jockholme syndrome. How anyone can support this union is beyond me now and I don’t want to listen to their excuses and reasons for voting no, I’ll leave that to the YES movement and if people don’t like my honesty I don’t really care, they deserve no understanding, not from me anyway.

    I couldn’t agree more with what you write. There’s been quislings in our history since before the Act of Union. SMSM and the red blue and yellow unionists are just modern day versions. We just need to convince the younger generation and EU residents to see the sense of being in control of our own destiny. Their empire is finished and we, their oldest colony, have had enough.

      I don’t think EU citizens will get a vote in the next referendum that’s for sure and it has to happen no later than 2020, we can’t wait until after the next Holyrood elections in 2021, it will all be fixed by the yoons by then and the onslaught will be like nothing we have seen. We also need to get our arse in gear as Better Together never went away they are just called Scotland in Union and they are holding events every month at a hundred pounds a pop, I know I signed up for their emails. I would love to know where they get the rest of their money from as they are loaded and very well staffed and resourced, we need to getting more organised now before it’s too late.

    Bruce, I must get my ability to reply to you set up on all my Kindles because you have written so much I wanted to reply to. This one is a cracker and you have two people here in this house who totally agree with you.
    Imagine how we feel, I am now in my seventh decade, my husband in his middle sixties and we are both desperate to see our country in charge of it’s destiny. We have no children of our own, we do have a niece and we have friends with kids. We want a better country for them. I also do not understand how Scotland has managed to produce the number of brain washed arse holes and out and out traitors that we have. I can see that the stupid can be gulled, the rest are Traitors, because anyone who works for another countries benefit or their own is exactly that.
    Keep up the good work, you and Tris, my favourite Dundonian’s.

      Thanks for liking the blog, it’s always been about expressing my opinion and if others get something from it that’s brilliant. I am at the point now where I can’t be arsed with Tories or unionists, they know everything they need to know about this crappy country and they choose to act against their own, I suppose these people have always been there but they are a stain on all of us. I’ll leave it to the YES movement to convince and be nice, I’m not there anymore. They treat us like crap, their media lie and threat all the time and we are supposed to turn the other cheek, not me, not anymore. I will say it as it is and if they don’t like they can go do one.

    I’ve been reading your blog for a while and yes , you can see a change in the way your writing . But its not a bad thing to vent your thoughts on your own blog , that’s why people blog after all . We are of a similar age , for me it was the East End of Glasgow during the Thatcher years , living in a cold damp flat with hellish little of anything , now at 48 I’m a full time carer for my wife , and let me tell you life ain’t easy . The anger you feel is felt everywhere , and is growing . People see the incompetent , ignorant , arrogant Tories , but for those who put Britain first , it doesn’t matter , I have no idea why it doesn’t but it doesn’t

    So its up to us who want a normal country , to convince as many to come over to the natural state of affairs and that is the IRS – Independent Republic of Scotland . Lets show and share our ideas , and do it loudly . There are many bloggers pulling apart the Brit Nats argument , but not too many putting forward ideas for what we could do . So I’ll start .

    We don’t need another referendum , shocking I know , but we don’t . The SNP have to call an election , and put one question to the country …….Offer to renegotiate the Treaty of The Union , Scotland gets everything apart from , defence , we share currency , Tariff free trade and freedom of movement . If Westminster don’t negotiate , Scotland withdraws from the treaty , if they delay negotiating until after Brexit , we withdraw from the treaty , and if the don’t deliver what Scotland wants within a 18 month time frame , we walk . Now this is just an idea , but its something different . There is an old saying , don’t get mad , get even , so lets get even .

      I have often thought about the Treaty of Union and why don’t the SNP just have a vote in Holyrood and revoke it, they won’t of course as it would cause conflict and they don’t have the nerve. Who cares if Westminster say the constitution is not part of devolution, or if the international community don’t accept it. We are not a region we are a country and they can live with it, I would rather have nothing and be Scottish than have what I have and be part of this shitty Britain, I have never been British and find it a total minter that is what my passport says. Unionists though can go do one now, I am not interested in what they have to say, they have all the info they need and I have had enough of their lies and threats, they can shove it and if people support them they can shove it too. My days of sugar coating, trying to convince people are over. I will speak my mind end of.

        Bruce , the SNP have to offer to re-negotiate the Treaty as the only question for the next election , that way the people give them the mandate to do so ,(or they won’t ), remember there is no written constitution , this would shift the Brit Nats onto the back foot and cause blind panic . Its never been tried , can you imagine the chaos the Brit Nats would be in trying to explain to those who want home rule or federalism that there would be no negotiation .
        The other side of this is the media , we know they lie, manipulate and omit . We know they protect their own , to defeat them is to defeat the union . And that is why people like yourself are invaluable . We have to know we are not alone , we have to know we can have the same thoughts and opinions as others and its normal , we have to know in all corners of Scotland people see the lies , and want others to see them as well .
        Anger can be a positive emotion and a powerful one , but never let in consume or blind .

        I’ve been reading your blog as I have said for a while , I’ve never read anything sugar coated on these pages .

          I think the SNP prefer the slow creep to be honest. I just don’t think it can work, it runs the risk of demoralising the yes side of they are seen to be too slow and too comfortable. I also don’t think the SNP would ever challenge the treaty although I think you are spot on as far as that strategy goes, I guess time will tell. I will keep blogging when I can for as long as it takes, there are days I feel like given up, but then those scumbags would have beaten me and that is not happening, we can’t go away.

          Thanks for continuing to read the blog, we do need to keep supporting each other you are also spot on there.

    I don’t blame some of the pensioners for voting NO. My mother in law is pro Indy. She was told by the husband of our former Labour MSP that if Scotland voted YES she would lose her old age pension. It is the only income she has. No matter how many times she and her friends were told it wasn’t true, the doubt had been cast. As she and her friends said, the claim came from the husband of a respected (former) MSP, why would he lie about such a thing?

    We are still in the UK thanks to Tory money funding Labour lies.

      I don’t blame the ones who believed the lies and I hope they remember what was done to them the next time. It’s the ones who know the truth and still vote for their union that I can’t accept, some of them profess to be Scots but they are not, they are British and who wants to be that, they must be really selfish and deluded.

    This is the first time I’ve seen your blog – but it certainly won’t be the last time. Thank you for putting into words what I have thought for many years. Never a Tory but before there were local SNP candidates I would vote Labour. The Blair years sickened me almost as much as any Tory government. I worked for the NHS for nearly 40yrs & I despise what is happening down south. I am like one of your earlier commenters slightly concerned that the SNP are maybe taking things a wee bit too cautiously but understand that certain measures – like our own bank – should be in place before we jump. I seem to have lost my patience somewhere along the line! Anyway thank you for your blog & please keep up the good work. Give my love to Dundee (I did my nursing training there in the 70s) .

      The Tory mantra has never changed, capatilism for the poor and socialism for the wealthy and we better watch is going on in England with public services as it will result in cuts to our pocket money. Thatcher allegedly once said Tomy Blair was her greatest achievement, I could believe that.

    Great read. Thanks for putting how i feel into words. I attend the marches for independence and have notice a big increase in the number of pensioners attending both the walks and rallies. I think(hope) Scotland is waking up. Am trying to be patient as I’m sure Nicola has a plan, but it gets harder every day. I so hate the tories, both sides of the border, it hurts. Come on Scotland lets do this!!!!!xx

      I haven’t made a march yet but would love to get to one, they seem to be mostly in Glasgow. I totally understand about the patience thing, how long will it take for people to wake up and get free from this horrid union. I despise the Tories, I always have, but I despise Scottish Labour and Scottish Liberal Democrats also. A friend persuaded me to join the Lib Dems and I only lasted a couple of months, I did meet some nice people but after attending a conference I thought no way, just another unionist party that will do anything to keep Scotland the last Colony. We just have to keep going though no matter how long it takes.

      Thank you for reading the blog and commenting.

    England dictates to Scotland, there’s no getting around this. We are a colonised people living under a dictatorship due to England’s in built majority in Westminster. I wonder how many so called Christians voted for the tories in the last general election knowing how evil the tories are. We need to show our anger and disgust, we need to show some passion for our beliefs and idea of creating a better country for all of its citizens.

      I think they dictate through the eyes of a fake democracy that they dominate by shear numbers, so you’re correct there is no way around that other than independence. The Tories are the scum of the earth and I just don’t understand how anyone can vote for that party, I despise them with all my heart. I am now at the place that I am not being nice, trying to convince, people know what is going on. There are no excuses anymore, the people that vote no in future know exactly what they are doing and if it’s a no vote in future then there is no such thing as Scotland.
