Moan McVulpine: A No vote at the referendum will only prolong the agony for Scotland

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.
Next!

Salmond’s “nation of drunks” in context.

IT’S EASY to take anything anyone has said out of context – in order to make it appear they said something else. It’s usually done to discredit. Politicians do it all the time, newspapers do it from time to time and, whenever Sun King Salmond is queried over something controversial he said, the stock defence is to claim that the quotes were being taken out of context. AhDinnaeKen asks, is this what happened to Salmond’s “nation of drunks” quote?:

Quote taken out of context or Wee Eck banged to rights? You decide. (click on image for full size)

SUCH IS the polarisation of the Scottish populus around Firstminster Salmond and his various utterances, that context becomes the overriding argument.

Roof (sic) Davidson put Salmond’s Putin comments from his now infamous GQ interview into perfect context at Firstminsters Questions (FMQ) last week.

Her contextualisation of the timing of Salmond’s comments left not only Salmond, diminished, but showed that he had also diminished the reputation of Scotland on the world stage.

And so to the “nation of drunks” quotation.

As can be seen from the above in the magazine, the “context” was the discussion of alcohol in sports sponsorship. A subject which naturally progressed onto the Minimum Unit Pricing (MUP) of alcohol proposed in the SNPs European Court bound bill.

In terms of MUP, Alistair Campbell asked the Firstminster, “So the state has to act on this?”

Salmond babbled on about the marketing of whisky to the Chinese being about “social emulation and authenticity, not cheapness.”

He then said: “if you are promoting it is authentic and of great worth, you cannot promote it from a nation of drunks.”

The implication is clear. Salmond thinks of his own “people” as “drunks” and that that reputation will have a diminishing effect on whisky’s marketability.

That one comment probably reveals, more than any other, the underlying puritanism of our childless virtual teetotalling Firstminster.

Of course, there’s wriggle room in the comment to exonerate him from the claim that he’s talking the Scots down. But not much.

The SNP mantra around the MUP bill used to be that it would save sixty lives a year.

Yet, it was revealed last year that almost ten times that amount died from methadone related diseases and actions.

So, if saving peoples lives was the real issue, then priorities would point to the methadone man sector as having first dibs on legislation.

But, there’s nothing we can sell to or market to the Chinese on the back of those wasted lives. The Chinese have had enough of the opium trade for a couple of centuries.

Instead we have MUP, the ill fated and poorly thought out Jakey Apartheid Bill – a bill which will do nothing to alleviate societal alcohol issues other than further impoverish those individuals with real problems.

AhDinnaeKen doesn’t often feel insulted by politicians, but this is one such instance.

Salmond, if he had any decency should further qualify the remarks or apologise.
