The Governor General of Scotland, Scottish Secretary and Tory Alistair Jack MP, has come up with a whopper tonight. In his humble coloniser mantra he has decided that a referendum on Scottish independence can only be held after 25 years have elapsed, 60% support for a referendum sustained over 12 months and,60% support for independence sustained over 12 months. The Governor General goes on to claim that indyref2 should not go ahead because Nicola Sturgeon has “gamed” the electoral system. This is based on the assertion according to the National that was based on the false claim that the pro-Yes Scottish Greens – who have signed up to a co-operation deal with the SNP – did not put up candidates in constituency votes in this years’ Holyrood election.
The Champagne must have been flowing at the Tory Conference if coloniser Jack thinks this bullshit is going to wash. So far this week we have seen the cruel Tories and now we have the deluded democracy denying Tories, how is that no vote looking right now. Basically the Tories are going to cut your poverty benefits until you are no longer healthy enough to campaign for independence and if that doesn’t kill you off they make you wait until you are old and ill either way and you pop your clogs anyway.
We really are seeing the true Tories this week so a question where are all the so called democrats, where is the outrage, where are the international socialists in the Labour Party who should be screaming blue murder at this affront to democracy, they are standing with the Tories, where are the Liberal Democrats who believe in self realisation, they are standing with the Tories, and where is the SNP, they are standing outside with the gender warriors.
If we want our independence we are going to have to take it, the first step in that journey is get behind Alba and ISP, support AUOB, challenge this bullshit and do not allow the SNP and the Greens to play games with our futures, the results will be never ending Tory rule and the end of the independence dream for a long long time. These Tory scumbags will go to any lengths to deny our right to choose and we cannot let them, we have to call them out, we have to shame them if they even understand what that means.
