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.
