MOAN believes that if Scotland rejects Independence then the Nationalists will milk their bitter tears for all their worthlessness and try, try, try again.
THE PROSPECT of a Yes vote this September is increasing in the minds of the online Nationalist community as more join in with the communal delusion of believing the polls.
But, when the most likely scenario happens and a No vote is returned, the Nationalists can be relied upon to revert to type by playing the ‘cowardice’ and ‘traitor to their country’ cards.
Ultimately, everyone would lose as Scot turned on Scot regarding the recriminations and fallout.
There is absolutely no doubt that the Nationalists would start using such stirringly ‘civic’ insults as ‘craven’, ‘gutless’, ‘wimps’, ‘traitors’, ‘quisling’, ‘turncoats’ etc etc tedious etc, to describe No voters – or abstainers.
But what of Salmond?
He will be the Ally MacLeod of the Nationalist campaign – promising the earth while delivering nothing.
Ho hum. Who cares? Next! Will be the cry of the hardcore separatists.
Scotland on pause is a phrase that will eventually find the Nationalists oot, right enough.
Take Joan McAlpine (please, just take her) with her most recent Daily Redcoat column.
She indulges in a flight o’ nightmarish fantasy, guaranteed to send shivers doon the spine o’ Jock Tamson’s Bairns.
“IN THE RESULT OF A NO VOTE WE WILL BE CONDEMNED TO A THOUSAND YEARS OF TORY RULE!!”, she virtually screams hysterically.
“WE WILL BE UNDER THE ELITIST JACKBOOT OF AN ELATED TORY REICH BLOATED ON THEIR VICTORY OVER THE SCOTS”, she wails in a fit of fevered frenzy.
You don’t have to be too discerning to see through the transparent fearmongering of such rampant anti-Tory, aka English, bigotry.
It’s the infantilism of her Nationalist diseased mind that she plainly cannot see how ridiculous she sounds to any but the faithful.
What she seems to forget is that the current Tory regime could just as easily have been a Labour menagerie of champagne socialists and political careerists.
But, Nick Clegg, rightly or wrongly, summing up the mood of the press, chose to slip between the sheets with the better looking, vaguely charismatic, Tony Blair-lite, David Cameron.
In doing so he exposed the Lib-Dems for the power whores they truly are and condemned them to the humiliation of being less popular than UKIP.
Ha Ha and ho hum. Scotland showed in 2011 what the Lib-Dems can expect at the general election.
And so to Joanie and her last risibly hilarious last sentence regarding the “progressive English socialist” Billy Dragg.
If she thinks the Braggster represents anything other than tokenistic socialist posturing, then she probably believes that PanelBase polls give a sound account of what Scotland is thinking of voting.
