This year is the 70th anniversary of D-Day and the centenary of World War One, these are two defining periods in the history of the 20th Century. These events changed the world as we know it, not just socially, but economically and politically.
The SNP hasn't really paid much attention to these important milestones, instead Alex Salmond and unpopular Nicola Sturgeon choose to focus on the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn.
The idea is simple, it is to further their quest for independence by exploit anti-English sentiment. So, we have the 'master strategist' Salmond staging the independence referendum in the same year as the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn.
At the same time, we have the Nationalists peddling the lie that they are running a positive campaign.
Anniversaries of battles and war, are a time for reflection of the sacrifice of made by others in defence of their country, their allies or of third parties who needed help, it isn't a celebration of slaughter. If you are ever in
London, then take the time to visit
down near the Elephant and Castle tube station. Looking at the exhibits you see
the real cost of war. Another way to get a sense of what was lost is to view
The World at War documentary series, a classic TV production screened in the
1970's. Imperial War Museum
Sir John Major has accused the Scottish Nationalists of trying to exploit anti-English sentiment, in many ways he is right. No matter how the SNP try to hide it using words like 'Tories', '
Westminster', 'Cameron', 'Thatcher' etc etc
as a focus of their complaints, the subtext is clear, anti English.
To counter the criticism the SNP makes much of the fact they have English members. But we should remember the BNP made much of the fact that they had Asian members and that their members were also married to people from different ethnic backgrounds.
The former Prime Minister says the Nationalists are trying to use the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn to further their quest for independence.
Major also says that the Conservatives were campaigning to save the
Union despite it being against their
political interests. He says that if there is a Yes vote would condemn Labour
to “almost permanent opposition” at Westminster.
I would say that is slightly disingenuous a statement. Britain would be a lesser place without Scotland, and Scotland
would be a lesser place without being part of the UK. I think both sides would
recognise that concept, however, the current arrangements don't work, an
example is the bedroom tax. I find the bedroom tax is wrong for Scotland, but it isn't just wrong for Scotland, it is
also wrong in all of the four nations. The trouble is that there aren't enough
talent people to fix it and speak out against it. So, we have Salmond and
Sturgeon 'have grievance will travel' tacking themselves on any unpopular
policy as being anti Westminster.
Scottish independence has absolutely nothing to do with any particular policy or who implements it.
cannot be bought, independence isn't an election, and given the way both sides
currently operate, you would think they could grasp that idea.
At present, we have unpopular Nicola Sturgeon as the 'face of independence' trying to 'buy the vote' using our own money, when that money should be getting spent of the basis of need. Not whether it will boost her "popularity", which incidentally doesn't exist in my opinion, it is sinking quicker than the collective Nationalist IQ.
One thing which is talked about is what happens when Alex Salmond loses, and he is going to lose. You see when you watch the Movie Braveheart, you see Mel Gibson as William Wallace, Salmond's problem is that he isn't William Wallace and also importantly doesn't give a shit about the Scottish people.
One thing the SNP run with is 'civic Nationalism'.
What is 'civic Nationalism'?
Civic Nationalism is crap, a made piece of rubbish to include non Scots and allegedly based on 'fairness, equality and social justice'. It doesn't actually exist except in the feeble minds of people like Nicola Sturgeon. It is an utter con trick!
What type of Nationalist leaves Scottish women to die of cancer because the Health Sec is too busy to do her job?
Is that civic Nationalism?
Nicola Sturgeon joined a Nationalist party and she doesn't give a shit about the people of
Her record speaks for itself, it is a catalogue of grudge, grievance and
malcontent, with the sick joke she is a 'social justice champion'. Like WMD in Iraq no one has
found the evidence of her being a 'social justice champion'. We just have the
SNP and her sycophants at Glasgow SNP pumping that out in the hope that the
gullible will buy into it. She is robbing 15,000 Scots of the legal right to
own their own council home......'social justice champion' or as the women of
Govan said to me, arsehole...... you decide!
People are waking up and thinking now, when Ukip got their 'precious' MEP seat, this opened the door in
Scotland to the public that they
could vote for other types of Nationalism. It didn't matter at the European
Election whether the Ukip guy understood politics, it didn't matter if he
didn't know anything about the EU, doesn't matter if he can't tie his shoe
laces. What mattered was the people of Scotland sending Alex Salmond and Nicola
Sturgeon a message; 'don't play race politics with us'.
At its heart, the SNP is rather simple, that being the case, it failed to develop into a political party, instead it festered into a rather nasty vicious vile clique, a party within a party where the leader thinks he is smarter than he actually is. Salmond will have his Cabinet meetings in a Church hall trying to be all pious and righteous, then he will spend thousands of pounds of taxpayers money in secret in a single night.
Who pays someone a £1,000 to play a piano while he eats?
Another issue raised by John Major was the Cybernats, he says Salmond should “control or disown” them. The Nationalist hate wing loves their 'cute little honey' and their 'cute little honey' has few friends left. Cybernats specialise in using the Internet to pour vile abuse on their unionist opponents. Unionists also use the internet to kick back as well. I was recently accused of being a cyber bully, this was in relation to calling the odious waste of human flesh Natalie McGarry, a 'little shit of a human being'. Some cybernats cited my recent articles on the attacks on Clare Lally and JK Rowling as an example of me being a hypocrite. Presumably, the cybernats thought it was okay that Natalie McGarry to link my blog to a hate account on twitter specifically setup by a Nationalist supporter. McGarry who no doubt enjoyed herself doing that, forgot one simple thing on a computer and that is 'save as'.
Major's called for Alex Salmond and unpopular Nicola Sturgeon to call off the dogs, too late for that one!
When I was an SNP member, I used to go to SNP conferences, rarely; one of things which I found pathetic was when Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon hugged and kissed each other publicly, so obviously contrived for the cameras. Two unlikeable and false people doing a show of affection, do they think
cares about them?
Are they so deluded that they don't equally know how much they are disliked?
SNP ministers have promised the Bannockburn Live event, being staged over two
days at the end of this month, will celebrate Robert the Bruce’s defeat of the
English army in 1314 without being political.
The Bannockburn Live event is a celebration of Scots killing English people, as such it maybe a success for the Braveheart mob, but in reality it will be a damp squid to the rest of Scotland. The idea to remember the battle isn't the problem, the stupidity comes from the Nationalists linking it to independence.
As I keep saying, there is a genuine lack of talent in the SNP; this farce is just another example to prove my point, who but an idiot celebrates killing English people.
They are too ignorant, too stupid and too petty to gain independence!
