Scotland becoming an independent nation can benefit the SNP cabinet with larger pension pots and fringe benefits than ever before
WE CAUGHT a glimpse of the future yesterday when Moses Salmond milked every photo opportunity angle for all his worth.
Two mediocrities, two Minsters – Prime and Fat – a skirling welcome and a deal called The Declaration of Contempt. The meeting was an inconvenience for an Etonian toff bent on crushing the plebs.
When the SNP get ‘TELT’ come 2014, such meetings and greetings will be considered an Argentina 1978 World Cup moment.
The relationship between Scotland and England after the inevitable result will be a bitter one – fractious, accusational, but one in which Scotland turns on itself and gives the more Nationalistic English a richt guid laugh.
That potential can be seen in the pomp and stage managed bombast yesterday.
In an important camera angle, Moses Salmond looked every bit the Snake Oil huckster on the make.
If it is a Yes vote, pigs will fly, seas will part, and Scotland will win the World Cup. We’re on the march with Salmy’s Army.
It is in everyone’s interests that such delusions don’t get out of hand. Occasionally us Scots go over the top and fail to spot hubris out of control.
Already the prospect of an independent nation has changed the contempt Westminster has for the SNP.
In March the Bullingdon Prime Minister said that the SNP were getting one question only. And that’s what’s happened – Basa!
He’s never pulled back from that commitment and that’s what the privileged one has delivered for his Anglo-Saxon genocidal tribe.
The Neverendum will be made in Scotland by the same people who drafted the Jakey Apartheid Tax otherwise known as the Minimum Pricing Alcohol bill.
So the opponents of the SNP must be pishing themselves laughing at its chances.
The SNP always made it clear that they would listen to the will of the sovereign people of Scotland by consulting them over the Neverendum.
Their refusal to even pay lip service to the record 26,000+ responses of those consulted tells you all you need to know about the SNP’s attitude toward their ‘sovereign’ people.
It was a loud and clear DECLARATION OF CONTEMPT. But those committed to the cause will be able to justify it with some half-hearted weasel worded apologist excuse.
We can buy into the Snake Oil Huckster’s pitch or we can reject it for the kleptocratic ego driven power grab that it clearly is.
If you want to help the SNP cabinet increase their pension pots and continue scratching the back of their favourite corporate puppet masters, Vote Yes.
If you want to stay in the status quo morass of inequality and class based prejudice vote No.
If you want to show your contempt for the lot of them because they’re all the same, spoil the ballot paper and write in a big china marker: “Ye’s are aw bawbags – get tae Fenwick”.
SAOR ALBA fae the SNP.
