One thing in politics is to know when the jig is up, to know when its game over, but apparently the shop soiled great white hope of Dreghorn Nicola Sturgeon doesn’t understand that concept.
Tampax campaigner Nicola Sturgeon is to hold talks with European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker in Brussels today.
A piece of nonsense, a dog and pony show, the basis of her European adventure is to attempt to keep Scotland in the European Union.
For those unaware, that means the Nationalists readers who stop by, here is the George Laird view, always handy to have, no part of a country can join the EU while the rest of the country remains outside.
And there is more, in a federal situation if that transpires down the line, no federal part of a country can join the EU while the rest of the country remains outside.
Nicola Sturgeon hasn’t the legal authority to join the EU, Scotland has never held a membership and the rules apply on both sides of the fence, in other words, her adventure is nothing more than a PR stunt and she is screwed!
Since Nicola Sturgeon is a lawyer, she already knows this one would assume unless she was so shit at law she couldn’t grasp facts or indeed read a treaty properly.
Sturgeon is expected to meet European Parliament president Martin Schulz and Guy Verhofstadt, the former Belgian prime minister and leader of the Liberal group at the European Parliament.
What does this mean?
It means nothing!
The real meeting, a meeting with European Council president Donald Tusk is not on the cards and he has no plans to meet Sturgeon because he does not consider it to be the right time.
The right time is code for you are not a sovereign member state.
As to the MSPs giving her a "mandate" to hold discussions with EU institutions, this is another clear example why Holyrood is so poor, why they only seem capable of gesture politics, and why that lot need to grow up.
Sturgeon’s pitch is that "everything must be on the table to protect Scotland's place in Europe", Scotland didn’t have a place in the EU, the United Kingdom did, England, Wales and Northern Ireland equally didn’t have a place either.
"My objective at this very early stage is firstly to raise awareness of the fact that Scotland voted differently in this referendum to the UK as a whole and that there is an aspiration and desire in Scotland, cross-party, to protect Scotland's relationship with the European Union and our place in the European Union”.
Is she having a laugh?
Maybe someone should raise awareness with her that she is a loser and blowing taxpayer money on a matter than doesn’t come under her remit.
"And secondly, to begin the process of mapping out and exploring what the options for Scotland might be”.
That’s called Article 49 of the Lisbon Treaty….. hardly rocket science!
"I'm very aware that this is a long process ahead of us, it's likely to be a difficult and challenging process, but I'm determined that we take every possible step to protect Scotland's interests at every stage of it."
A challenging process for the mentally challenged, as to protecting Scotland’s interests, that falls to the task of the Westminster Government, more able, more capable, more dynamic and more influence that her and crew of non-entities!
The ultra-unionist Conservative declared:
Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has warned Scotland has no right to negotiate with the EU.
"If the the United Kingdom leaves, then Scotland leaves too."
Nicola Sturgeon will never be statesman material!
Do you remember the doom and gloom and the angry remainers who tried to blame the leave campaign over the fall in the markets?
Guess what, read this.
Britain is a strong economy and in less than a week the country is bouncing back, Britain is for the first time in 43 years in a position to undertake tremendous opportunities in the World.
In my previous post, the road to civil war, I was saying that violence was coming to Europe.
I did this piece on March 21 2016 because the warning signs are clear to see, today in Turkey, we have seen tragic events unfold.
I will say it again, Europe is on the road to civil war within the member states, Turkey will join Europe as a member then freedom of movement will allow terrorists to cross borders easily to murder innocent people. Nicola Sturgeon by her rank stupidity is endangering the national and economic security of Scotland. We really do have an idiot in charge as First Minster of Scotland.
Finally, time for a quote:
"Never was so much owed by so many to so few".
In the coming years, the campaigning done by many people on the leave campaign will be remembered as the few who stood against the many, the elite and won.
