More unionist rubbish – what is it with unionists that they are so determined to make life as difficult as they can for Scotland, I was tempted to say their country, but Scotland is just not their country is it. So called journalist Paul Hutcheon, Political Editor, Daily Record, has come up with the crap below
The obvious solution to this political impasse would be a joint agreement between the UK and Scottish Governments which laid out the conditions for indyref2 to be staged.
A pro-independence majority at Holyrood would likely be one criterion. A sustained shift in favour of independence – say, 60 per cent support over two years – would be another trigger.
Deciding whether the conditions had been met could be determined by an independent commission, which would take Scotland off the tedious rollercoaster of phantom referendum dates.
It would mean the pro-UK side, in advance, unequivocally accepting a Yes vote would result in Scotland becoming independent.
On the pro-independence side, it could involve Westminster and Holyrood having to pass a law accepting that a No vote would result in no further referenda for at least 30 years.
Talk about bought and sold, it really is heart-breaking sometimes to realise how colonised some of our fellow Scots are, and how little faith they have in Scotland. No matter how bad the UK gets, no matter how many Tory Governments we never elected but have to endure are forced on us by our English masters (the voters), no matter how many children live in poverty, how many go hungry and cold, they would rather that than democracy, I just really can’t get my head around that.
What is it with the bought and sold – Now as most of you who have read this blog know I have never been convinced by Mhairi Black. I know a lot of people like her, call her a fire brand etc but she never did it for me in any way. Her antics when she first went to Westminster when she allegedly took her pals out on a booze up just didn’t sit well with me at all and all the talk of hating Westminster while playing the same game as those in her party who have settled in all too well tells its own story. Anyway, she has joined the language bandwagon it would appear
the Paisley and Renfrewshire MP has admitted there are “zoomers” in the Scexit movement, and many of them have come to the surface in the past week.
Ms Black said she agreed with Mr McDonald. She added: “I think to be using language like ‘colonies’ and ‘imprison’ and stuff, that does a disservice to the fact that Scotland was a massive part in colonising other countries that genuinely did suffer massive abuses.
“That’s not to say there aren’t abuses in Scotland’s history but the dynamic is just not comparable in any sense.
While she at least acknowledges that historically Scotland suffered, the simple fact is Scotland still suffers today and she and her party are doing very little to alleviate our situation. Abuse is abuse no matter the form it takes, and Scotland is being abused wither she likes the language or not. Many of us are embarrassed by some of our fellow Scots who took advantage of the colonisation of other nations to enrich themselves, took the English pound of the times, as many of the ethnic people in colonised countries did also, but that does not take away from the simple fact that Black is a part of the problem and not the solution. She has settled in Westminster in my opinion and is taking that same English pound today that those same people did in the past who sold us out.
It appears we can’t upset the unionists, or the SNP, with our harsh words that speak the truth like trapped, colonised, imprisoned. We are going to lose any vote in future, and it is down to the SNP and their delicate flowers.
