It seems that the pressure to jump has forced SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon to plan for a second independence referendum using Brexit as a grievance. Sturgeon decided that this tactic which will fail somehow represents a "real choice" between Brexit and leaving the
Although this means another Nationalist hate campaign is gearing but which will be more nasty and vicious than the previous one. So, get ready to be called paedophile, racist, homosexual, homophobe, misogynist and anything else they can think of to smear you if you back the pro
Tomorrow in Glasgow sees a meeting of Scotland in Union, if the topic was a general feelgood presentation well, the agenda just got changed with the revelation that Sturgeon plans to seek the approval of Holyrood to start negotiations with the UK Government on staging a fresh referendum.
Round two……. Ding ding!
The idea is that the SNP want to hold a second independence vote take place as early as autumn 2018, the lie of ‘once in a generation’ painfully exposed, if the vote takes place in 2018 that would means it would only have been four years since the last one. The SNP claimed that the 2014 vote was a ‘once in a generation’ vote, now they are breaking their word, but in truth, the Nationalists are seen as liars, untrustworthy and deceitful.
I remember speaking to Professor Adam Tomkins who is now an MSP around the 2014 vote, I said to him, archive everything in Better Together.
Yes, four years ago, I had the vision to see right through Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon, George Laird right again.
The people of
won in 2014 to keep Scotland
in the Union, and they will win again, last time it was 55% to 45% to stay part
of the United Kingdom,
I would expect that number to increase with a bit of effort.
As SNP support is falling along with the approval ratings of Nicola Sturgeon, the timing of this call to arms is suspiciously like council electioneering, Sturgeon need bodies to get out an fight the council elections. I would suggest that the “carrot” to the Braveheart crowd has just been dangled.
Do, you know the reason that nearly two-thirds (62%) of Scots opted to stay in the European Union, but the
UK as a whole voted for Brexit?
Well as someone who knows a lot about the Leave Campaign, let me fill you in, the campaign started late in
Scotland, it had little money, it
had little resources, it had little personnel and most of them weren’t actually
experienced campaigners. And of course some of the messages which came from
down south were actually very poor, but in spite of many obstacles and
handicaps, the Leave Campaign managed to pull in one million votes.
One million votes with such an under sourced campaign was a remarkable achievement, in
areas where people took my campaigning advice, they managed to return a plus 40%
In Pollok, the percentage was 40.8% which was the second highest in the City of
So, will the UK Government grant a Section 30 order for autumn 2018 when Brexit talks would possibly still being done?
I doubt it, the Westminster Government will be effectively tied up for the next two years with Europe, and it is therefore in their interest to clear the decks assuming they say yes to round two.
If I was in Theresa May’s shoes, I would say no to Nicola Sturgeon flat out, once that happens, where does Sturgeon go? She along with Alex Salmond both signed the Edinburgh Agreement to accept the result, if the
UK had lost,
they would have honoured their end; it seems the SNP don’t understand the
So, the choice is do the people of
Scotland want to break from a 300 year old Union
which pools and shares resources to hand over control of Scotland to a political organisation in Brussels?
One thing which will not be included in the vote is independence; Nicola Sturgeon plans to give that away to the EU as soon as humanly possible.
"I will now take the steps necessary to make sure that Scotland will have a choice at the end of this process - a choice of whether to follow the UK to a hard Brexit or to become an independent country, able to secure a real partnership of equals with the rest of the UK and our own relationship with Europe."
Given no talks have taken place, how does she know if leaving will be a hard Brexit?
And do you know what hard Brexit means anyway?
Hard Brexit is something which is favoured by Brexiteers, it means:
Give up full access to the single market
Have full access to border control and immigration
Make independent trade deals
Apply new rules within our own territory
Rely on the World Trade Organisation
Hard Brexit doesn’t represent anything dramatic.
Soft Brexit is favoured by Remain campaigners, they want:
Remain, as close as possible, to the existing arrangements
Accept "four freedoms" - movement of goods, services, capital and people
This will offer continued free access for EU nationals to live and work in the
and membership of the European Economic Area
In other words, leave the EU in name only, lose our rebate, voting rights and be subjected to EU laws and end up being treated as badly as the EU had done with African countries on trade deals.
Soft Brexit isn’t a viable option which the Westminster Government can accept and still claim to be representing the will of the people.
Finally, Europe is collapsing because of the migrant crisis, if we were to stay in the EU; we face down the line
Scotland having to accept migrant
quotas. This makes Scotland
a major highway for terrorists and other criminals to access Scotland, and the rest of the UK, putting
people’s lives at risk.
It is in the national and economic interests of
to save our country and its people from crippling austerity which is the
by-product of Sturgeon’s insanity.
Our health service would be decimated; our council services drastically reduced, there would be high unemployment and the most vulnerable and poorest would suffer greatly.
The second phoney war appears to be coming to an end; the second Battle of Britain appears to be just below the horizon now, this time round so much more is at stake.
