Do we even have the right to call Scotland our country anymore – That is a question that I have been asking myself a lot the last few months. According to the criteria of sovereignty, no other country should have authority over the particular nation’s territory. The United Kingdom maintains authority over the territory of Scotland, but what we now have confirmed by the English Supreme Court is that for United Kingdom replace with England, that is the simple truth wither you like it or not. England, as in any Government elected by voters in England, not Scotland, maintains authority over what was once a country called Scotland.
Kilts, short bread, 90-minute patriots, and lamenting our lost nation every 30th November – That is all we are now pretty much, we are a parody of a dead nation that doesn’t even know its own history anymore. The Kingdom of Scotland ( Scottish Gaelic: Rìoghachd na h-Alba; Scots: Kinrick o Scotland, Norn: Kongungdum Skotland) was a sovereign state in northwest Europe traditionally said to have been founded in 843. The Kingdom of England was a sovereign state on the island of Great Britain from 12 July 927, Scotland predates England but in 1707 we allowed ourselves to become Northern England at best.
We are a curiosity to the rest of the world but an embarrassment to ourselves – The world sees golf, brave hairy Australians, lovely red headed animations of highland lassies, but the reality is as Northern Britan’s we are unhealthy, we die younger, we have poor outcomes, we have major addiction problems, poverty on a scale that is frightening, and now hunger and cold, all accepted without much fight from a Tory Government that are elected by voters in England who see it as their right to impose this state of affairs on us dirty former Scots.
We keep electing politicians who fail us – The politicians we sent to the English capital to reclaim our country have been bought and sold by the English Establishment Pound and yet we keep sending them down there, but when you keep voting for Northern Britons then what you get is Northern Britons acting like Northern Britons at the beck and call of the English Parliament.
WHAT makes Scotland a nation? I wish someone would convince me that Scotland is actually a country anymore, without sovereignty we are nothing more than Northern England. Devolution is not sovereignty; it is a glorified council on a large scale centralised and still controlled via the English Government with the assistance of the Scottish used to be National Party. Salvo might believe Scotland is a territorial sovereign nation, but it has been hidden, but are we?
This blog may not please a lot of people, well it might please the unionists, or the colonised as they should be known, but right now I just can’t bring myself to see Scotland as the country it once was, as the proud nation it once was. I have never flown the Saltire, I don’t celebrate St. Andrews Night, I have only worn a kilt once, but I do like short bread while hardly ever eating it. Other than that, right now I am a man with no nation branded British through no fault of my own, colonised at birth like so many before me, regaled by stories of a country that no longer exists.
