Scotland’s unpopular Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon is still trying to con working class Scots into voting Yes in the Scottish independence referendum.
Yesterday, George Osborne dropped an A bomb on the Nationalists with the announcement that there will be no currency union.
Is it likely that after all the main opposition parties have committed to No that one would change their mind?
And in 2015, there is a Westminster General Election which all parties will reaffirm that statement, because it goes right to the heart of politics, trust!
The SNP leadership of Scotland’s ‘jolly fat man’ Alex Salmond and unpopular Nicola Sturgeon have effectively flung in the towel and at the same time treated voters with contempt and their own working class members by using them as mugs!
That’s right the SNP leadership can’t even be straight with its own members, they should have planned for a Scottish currency and didn’t.
So much for SNP strategists!
Nicola Sturgeon has quite wrongly ruled out a Plan B for currency in an independent Scotland; this is a serious matter!
This also leaves the Alex Salmond party within the SNP with nowhere to go now.
In a speech at University College London last night she signal that the SNP Government aren’t prepared to do the work and would continue to argue for a sterling-zone with the UK.
How many SNP members must feel like mugs now?
These party members have been totally conned into being cheap labour for the Alex Salmond party within the SNP, promised so much and lied to repeatedly that a win was possible.
Sturgeon said that Scottish ministers had concluded that a currency union would be best for an independent Scotland that means you should vote No to independence in September because if you don’t you lose the pound and Nicola might not be able to get free tickets to sit in the Royal box at Wimbledon.
"That is a position we are going to continue to argue because we think it is the right one."
If that’s the case, she is advocating a No vote by default.
She says Scots would make their own judgment on the merits of a currency union when they vote in the independence referendum.
This isn’t a matter for the Scottish people, it is a matter for Westminster, see how the SNP treat ordinary people with contempt, presented with an option that isn’t available.
"Ultimately people will make their own judgement and vote in September, but we think it is right for Scotland and we believe it is right for the rest of the UK."
It is a false choice because it doesn’t exist.
And then Sturgeon used the threat that the SNP Government wouldn’t be prepared to pay their share of the UK debt citing that the debt was not "legally theirs."
Who would in their right mind lend money to a country that acts like that?
Who would want to invest?
Who would want to buy their bonds?
The UK currency is not an asset to be decided by the SNP leadership; it is and remains the sole property of the UK.
Further madeness came from Sturgeon when she said businesses, including Scotland's major banks, would force George Osborne into a change of heart on currency after a Yes vote.
"I'm pretty sure that George Osborne will have a queue of businesses outside his door saying 'for goodness sake you are not planning to get us into a separate currency, that will cost us a fortune'."
Simple minded provincial thinking!
And with great delusion she added that the polls are narrowing.
Bullshit they are narrowing.
The SNP campaign is a farce, and everything now is about creating an illusion that the campaign is going well, it never was and is a huge massive political fraud that the SNP leadership are trying on with people in Scotland.
"I also strongly believe that what is said in the heat of the campaign changes and that common sense prevails after that campaign is over."
Commonsense dictates that whatever Unionist party changes their minds would lose any chance of winning the General election in 2015!
An election that the SNP will do badly in!
Sturgeon also said of the Conservative Chancellor, his tactics would backfire on him and Westminster.
Oh really, he delivered a superb gravitas speech with the correct tone and pitched perfectly and even sounded entirely reasonable.
"If you were going to send someone to Scotland to bully and intimidate I would have thought the last person you would want to send is George Osborne, who is seen by many as the architect of austerity and many if the welfare changes that are hitting the vulnerable so hard right now."
The use of saying that bullying and intimidation are going on by Westminster is risible by the SNP leadership, it is a bit like saying your neighbour has decided to protect his home and because you don’t like the measures he is trying to bully you and intimidate you!
The SNP come across as crackpots!
People don’t like Nicola Sturgeon, so her prediction that this development was "not one that was likely to go down well in Scotland"; is also wrong.
Sturgeon is supposed to be touring down South in coming weeks to spreading her message, that "we will always be more than good neighbours. We are allies, friends, family", across the whole of the UK.
Even after saying reneging on UK debt?
Who’s kidding who?
And in another massive blunder Sturgeon appeared to suggest that the Spanish government should accept the right of the Catalonian people to decide on potential independence.
Think Spain will vote Yes to Scotland’s EU membership now?
You don’t interfere with the domestic politics of another country, really stupid and really ill-judged remark.
Yesterday was a death blow to Scottish independence, my advice to SNP members is to abandon ship, not just the campaign but the party, it isn't a "model of constitutional democracy" under Salmond and Sturgeon, it is a ‘rat ship’, and it is now time to get out.
