TRIUMPH OF THE SOVEREIGN WILL

AHDINNAEKEN TAKES its proverbial hat off to Firstminster Salmond’s repetitive use of the phrase “the sovereign will of the Scottish people” at Firstminster’s Questions recently. Ten times, in a period spanning less than twenty four minutes, Firstminster Salmond paid tribute to the “sovereign will of the Scottish people”. Weel din Firstminster, repetition like that goes way beyond the realms of desperation. It’s hard core Nationalist dogma at its best. AhDinnaeKen doffs its tammy to your indefatigability.

TO ROMANTICS and believers in democracy the “sovereign will of the people” is an uplifting ennobling and aspirational state for any modern democratic nation to achieve.

From the Declaration of Arbroath in 1320 to the Declaration of Independence of Thomas Jefferson’s America, the “sovereign will of the people” is a just and true and heart stirring inspiration for all socially minded, progressive and civic peoples to aspire to.

In Scotland, Wha’ daurs meddle wi’ the sovereign will?

Only the anti-democratic imperialist forces of the bluffing, blustering and bullying Union could possibly contemplate such a thing.

And they are. Apparently.

According to Firstminster Salmond, Unionist “thieves” denying an independent Salmondland the enforcement of a currency Union on a foreign country is just such a denial of the hallowed sovereign will.

After the Firstminster’s embarrassing pummelling from Alistair Darling recently, his performance at Firstminster’s Questions on 10th August sounded like the desperation of a punch drunk Nationalistic liability – a millstone around the SNP’s and the Yes campaign’s neck.

Political convictions delivered repetitively can imprint themselves on the collective mind of the people – according to propagandists and politicians.

But there needs to be a requisite skill with which such repetitions are delivered.

View the video above and make up your own mind if Salmond’s tedious repetition of the phrase was skillful or desperate.

In AhDinnaeKen’s eyes, it is a transparent and borderline dangerous Nationalist trick designed to ramp up grievance and a sense of injustice perpetrated on the Scottish people by ‘evil’ Westminster “thieves”.

Currency Union may be what the “sovereign will of the Scottish people” desires – though that is debatable – but, if the sovereign will of the English, Irish and Welsh people don’t desire such a Union, then it can hardly be called “bullying” by the Unionist parties when they turn round and say “Naw, yer no gettin’ it”.

There are increasing signs of transparent and potentially dangerous Nationalist sabre rattling brought on by the realisation that, on current form, they are going to lose the referendum.

The Firstminster’s prattle aboot the sovereign will at FMQs was the lighting of the touch paper for certain Nationalist Front types to ramp up the Nationalist fervor.

Expect more bitterness, acrimony and wailing and gnashing of teeth over the coming weeks.

Ho hum!

Wings Over Scotland: An absence of f**king irony

INDEPENDENCE CAMPAIGNER to be and hate-preaching guardian of the Nationalist Front psyche, Stuart Campbell of Wings Over Scotland, was lamenting the acrimonious side to the indy debate yesterday. In an irony free blog post covering the progress of current referendum discourse, the alleged Reverend discussed the treatment of the Weirs – the SNP’s largest donators to the cause. AhDinnaeKen investigates:

It was reported in Edinburgh that James MacKenzie and Calum Cashley spontaneously combusted yesterday upon such joyous news.

DIMINUTIVE DEMAGOGUE, wee Stuarty Campbell was in reflective mood yesterday.

The tone of the referendum’s discourse has taken a turn for the worse and he “reluctantly” chose to talk about “the odious and hateful side of the independence debate“.

Leaving aside that this is like a skunk complaining about bad smells in the environment, the ‘wee’ man reflected on the issue in a blog entitled ‘An absence of Respect‘.

It covered the abuse the Nationalist campaign’s largest donators, the Weirs, have suffered at the hands of the SNP’s opponents and, in particular, gorgeous George Galloway – the reason behind the capitalisation of the R in Respect.

In this instance, the Nationalist Front Ranter had a point, of sorts.

It’s unfortunate for Better Together’s motley crew that the Weirs won so much money, but that’s life. Get ower it! There’s no point in whinging about it. It just makes the whingers look and sound sour and gives self appointed proselytising pontiffs like Campbell the chance to act as if they were possessed of some kind of moral superiority.

Regular readers will know that AhDinnaeKen frequently refers to the Laird Wilcox Extremist Traits list to help point out Campbell’s varying forms of extremism.

Aside from numbers 1 and 2 – which are the most tediously obvious and commonly demonstrated Campbell/Wings traits – ‘An absence of Respect‘ demonstrates trait numbers: 5) ADVOCACY OF DOUBLE STANDARDS, 6) TENDENCY TO VIEW THEIR OPPONENTS AND CRITICS AS ESSENTIALLY EVIL and 7) MANICHAEAN WORLDVIEW.

So far, so stereotypical.

AhDinnaeKen’s chuckles of incredulity were amplified by this moralising statement in the blog: “Independence campaigners should expect an endless, rancid vomit-slick of this sort of provocation in the next four months.

Ironically, independence campaigners don’t have to wait, Campbell delivered it to their Twitter feed a long time ago and he’s still pumping it out from his rat infested bedsit.

The following is a flavour of the type of ‘progressive‘ and ‘civic‘ campaigning indy-ref voters/campaigners can expect from a soon to be ‘official‘ campaigner for the Yes side:

In a recent Scotsman article Lesley Riddoch said: "The way people are heard and treated today creates either confidence or doubt about the future."  I wonder what Wings supporting Lesley would think about being called a hypocrite.

Fuck this and fuck that, Fuck it all and fuck a fucking brat, We* don't wanna baby that sounds like that I don't wanna baby that acts like that

F**k this and f**k that,
F**k it all and f**k a f**king brat,
We* don’t wanna baby that sounds like that
We* don’t wanna baby that acts like that – The Electoral Commission Sex Pistols (Independent Bodies)

 

Concise, incisive, eloquent and too the point. We* salute Wingsy's indefatigability.

Concise, incisive, eloquent and directly to the point. This is the future of online debate in an independent Scotland. We* salute Wingsy’s indefatigability – a herald of the indy zeitgeist.

 

This passes for humour in the ranks of the Nationalist Front. Not the Thatcher inspired use of Wet to describe people on his own side.

It's not just about a brighter future for Wingsy, it's also about equality and egalitarianism.

"Campaigners shouldn't attack the man they should attack the points being made."  Good to see that being adhered to here. Weel din Wingsy sark.

According to Bruce's father in the movie Braveheart, men are attracted to those unwilling to compromise. Worth remembering what happened to them as well - slaughtered on the battlefield and ritually disembowelled in front of the baying crowd.

Steve's sister spent years of her life studying the reasons for the Hillsborough disaster. Her brother was one of the 96. This was how Campbell dealt with her because she had the temerity to disagree with him. What was that Lesley Riddoch said again about the way people are treated?
