Are we nearly there yet?

Posted on October 09, 2023 by

Six years ago today.

The mass uprisings will be any minute now, we’re sure.

Although then again, maybe not.

Half of the country still wants independence, but until we give them a way to vote for it they’re just going to keep shrugging their shoulders and worrying about their daily lives. There’s a way the SNP and Greens could do that within a matter of weeks, but they refuse to contemplate it because it would involve giving up two and a half years of guaranteed lucrative salaries and taking a risk, at a time when their parties are crushingly unpopular.

(And as the vast bulk of them are far too useless to ever have a hope of a job half as well paid in any sector other than politics, who could blame them?)

That was the case six years ago, it’s the case now, and it’ll be the case in six years’ time when the SNP as a party of government is just a fading memory and Pete Wishart, who furiously resisted the truth until the exact moment when it was too late, is living it up on his huge UK taxpayer-funded pension with all his grouse-shooting pals.

The sooner the SNP is destroyed, the sooner we can start again.

    “but they refuse to contemplate it because it would involve giving up two and a half years of guaranteed lucrative salaries and taking a risk, at a time when their parties are crushingly unpopular”

    Personally, I doubt they consider their parties becoming crushingly unpopular a concern with regards to calling a vote on independence. For that to happen, those two parties would have to really want independence.

    For the last 9 years they have demonstrated in numerous occasions that independence is not their goal and, perhaps for this very reason, it was themselves who made their parties crushingly unpopular.

    Despite hemorrhaging membership, funds, activists and voters, they are still determined to continue down that self-destructive path they carved for themselves. That cannot just be a matter of negligence or stupidity. It is quite deliberate.

    In my opinion, if they are not making any efforts to call the independence vote is only because:

    1. they do not want to lose power and their seats in the gravy train
    2. they can no longer guarantee to the British and USA establishments they will be able to contain the yes vote should a vote take place. This is because the independence movement has now uncoupled from those two betraying parties and, despite their continuous attempts to block it, the yes movement is following its own path by bypassing them.
    3. they have been instructed to resist the vote by whomever/whatever is remotely controlling those two parties.

    I think we have to accept the fact neither the Greens nor Sturgeon and Yousaf’s SNP ever had any intention to progress independence. On the contrary, they have displayed a stubborn determination to derail it.

    We have been taken for absolute fools by the SNP and Greens for the last 9 years. It is time we respond to them in the way they deserve.

    Some indy folk have expressed bitter disappointment that large numbers of traditional SNP voters have still not turned to Alba or ISP etc. Don’t despair – it’s early days. Voters are well aware of what’s going on, but these things take time. The majority of traditional SNP voters feel badly let down and are currently working their way through the various stages of grief (similar to what happened to disappointed “Scottish” Labour voters a decade ago). They are struggling to come to terms with the new reality, that the SNP is a busted flush. Many of us probably wonder now whether we will now see Scottish independence in our lifetimes, but maybe it had to happen this way. It’s still coming, for a that. Who said it was going to be easy?

    And there’s the problem. Independence remains in people’s minds a nice idea, even a romantic hope, but they suspect a harsher reality.

    They’re fussed about it and have a position. But not that fussed and they’re certainly not going to swallow a significant sacrifice to make a few zealots happy.

    You see this. You see that 50%+1, most seats or even a ‘de facto’ vote hidden with a GE isn’t really a solid foundation for such a massive irreversible change. Yet you persist in trying to find a cunning way to shortcut what is a slow journey in order to quickly drag people over a line. In a way most people wouldn’t recognise as a solid mandate.

    A narrow margin isn’t how this should be done.

    The day a people choose to to walk over that line, it should be together. With an overwhelming majority in full support and the remainder at least prepared to accept the change with equanimity. We’re a way off that yet.

    Yes, as terrible as that sounds, that is what must happen now. Local people in the know in Rutherglen are already pointing out that the personal attacks on their MP, Margaret Ferrier, alienated many, and the alienation of female activists and members and voters, many backed ups by their male relatives, also led to the collapse of the party. The latter reason is only going to increase the stand-down of so many former activists and voters by next year. The lack of movement on independence is there third prong of what is a movement away from the “the party of independence”.

    The SNP has boxed itself into a corner by its own actions and its ultra stupid policies that either no one but a few ‘woman-facers’ and virtue-signallers wanted, or were so badly handled that they alienated people before they even began. No, we have to ensure that a phoenix is ready to rise from the ashes of the SNP in time for 2026, and the Scottish Election. The GE next year is already lost.

    There are still too many idiots who will vote SNP so that simply will not work.

    For this to work, tactical voting is required to get another party elected. In some constituencies that would involve voting Tory.

    For a lot of independence supporters that is a non-starter despite the overwhelming evidence that the SNP is no longer a party of independence as well as mounting evidence that the SNP are enabling people who are not fit to be put into positions of authority so they are able to exploit vulnerable people.

    After the SNP has been wound up, London will simply pivot onto destroying and subverting the new alternative. That’s if London isn’t in complete control of the new alternative to begin with.

    People need to be very vigilant when dealing with those sneaky and disloyal London arse holes. Before you know it, they’ll have their very own plant at the forefront of a new outfit. Just look at how they installed Humza so effortlessly.

    Salmond seems to be London’s preferred bidder for some reason. He doesn’t seem to get the same levels of snash and snidey comments from the UniParty sh1te bags down south. Which makes you wonder…

    Either way, the current situation is untenable and unhealthy. With half of the country being adamant that full autonomy is the only way to go in Scotland now, team London are at the point where they are creating a democratic vacuum by installing their plants, and by constantly throwing spanners in the works.

    They never have a nice word to say about this place, and constantly refer to our Country as a socialist waste land because we refused to hawk key public services to pension companies, ala Thames Water.

    Now the Englishmen are catching more turds than trout in their rivers, purely because the leading lights in London threw their lot in with a very strange and bastardised form of capitalism.

    If we stay hooked up to London, they will eventually find a way of doing the same to our rivers. Those parasitic, desperado b4stards would dig their own grannies up if they could get a good price for their individual bones!

    How hard can it be, man? London rule has been horrific for decades now. Hell, the top half of England would possibly be tempted to join us in ditching those losers and graspers down in London at this point.

    Extract from a good piece in Bellacaledonia 2019 on Scotland’s cultural cringe.

    “Billy Kay enquired to a Fife headmaster if pupils were encouraged to engage with Scottish Literature and was startled by his response: ‘’No. This is not a very Scottish area” (Robinson 2008, p.5). Other examples of what seems to be cultural ‘self-hatred’ came when, in response to the Scottish Independence Referendum in 2014, Conservative councilor Callum Campbell and Labour Councilor Danny Gibson proposed to have the Scottish Saltire removed from Stirling council’s headquarters and to replace it with the Union Jack (Wings over Scotland 2013). Both councilors said they wanted to see the emblem of ‘our country’ flying from Stirling council’s rooftop, evidencing perhaps the native abandoning their own national identity and culture and embracing that of the coloniser. These councilor’s allude to Fanon’s theoretical perspective of inferiorism but also to Bourdieu’s idea of symbolic violence whereby Scots not only participate in their own servitude but are the creators of it.”

    We need a different tactic because walking about the street with AUOB isn’t achieving anything, if it was the numbers walking the streets and in opinion polls would be higher not lower.

    Handing letters into the Bute House and the Scottish parliament, when they have been given prior notice that this is going to be done, for them just to ignore it, only shows that the SNP are actively working against the Independence.

    The Yes movement in my opinion has to start saying unless the SNP leadership starts doing the Right thing for Scotland, we will at the next election put a brochure through every single door In Scotland highlighting that SNP are actively working against Independence and going back on their word about going back into the EU.

    The Yes movement had a single fight during the Referendum now we are actively fighting both governments south and north of the border, because lets face it there isn’t one person in the party who’s willing to challenge Humza for the leadership if their was they’d have shown themselves by now.

    We are on our own its time to act and if Independence is dead then lets kill the party who caused it.

    If AUOB thinks that in five years time people will still be walking the streets shouting “what do we want Independence when do we want it now” I’m afraid your fantastic AUOB is heading the same way as the SNP. AUOB has to start to make a difference, we have to start in mass number protesting about the SNP and hows its actively destroying the Independence cause and we need to start realizing DUG, Riddock The RAG are all working collectively to stop Scotland becoming Independent for their own gain as are SNP MP’s Councillors and MSP’s.

    One possible plan could be to continue the brainwashing of children via ownership of the media, entertainment, publishing and academia to ensure a voter base for the future whilst the rest of us are classed as domestic terrorists and stripped of the right to vote.

    On that note the guy who was the London Bridge stabber was released from prison early as a poster boy for progressive redemption despite prison staff classing him as a danger to the public who was part of a gang carrying out enforced conversions to Islam on other prisoners. Two jewish women who were lecturers at Cambridge University had gained charitable status to lobby for the early release of people such as Usman Khan and had, as the enquiry was told, beguiled the warden who went along with them and granted the early release against all advice from his own staff. On release he ran into a wall of prejudice when trying to secure gainful employment and his cause was taken up by another jewish woman who held such a senior role in the DWP that she had been granted an OBE. Then he stabbed two people to death at an awards ceremony and despite support from the Guardian the charity had funding withdrawn.

    I became much more interested in stuff like this after spending a great deal of time amongst liberal zionists who held themselves as victims of discrimination whilst practicing a culture of nepotism, cronyism and political favouritism and seeking the destruction of my people and culture via mass unchecked immigration and the organised placement of minority groups in positions of power funded by jewish banking money, see the John Smith Institute. I believe in an independent Scotland free to choose its allies and not tied to alliances which engage in wars against countries which by a remarkable coincidence are all seen as threats to Israel.

    Show us the money.

    Nordic countries regularly make up the top places in the Happiness Index.

    https://econreview.berkeley.edu/beyond-gdp-economics-and-happiness/

    “Starting in 2012, the United Nations began compiling the “World Happiness Report” which examines how citizens worldwide rank their subjective level of happiness. Some of the world’s happiest countries have high GDP per capita, and most of the least happy are very poor. But the correlation is far from perfect. Finland, 2018’s happiest country on earth, has a per capita income of $49,000. The USA, clocking in at a dismal 18th place on the report, has 25% more annual output per person than Finland. Clearly, wealth and happiness seem to go together, but perhaps how that wealth gets spent is the important factor here.

    According to regression estimates of the data compiled by the UN, a 1% change in GDP per capita will cause only a 0.3 unit change in happiness (happiness is calculated on a scale from 0 to 10). However, when GDP per capita is included with other variables the model explains nearly 75% of the variance in happiness. These other variables consist of social support, life expectancy, freedom to make life choices, generosity, and freedom from corruption. This demonstrates that quality of life, and not just material wealth, plays a huge role in happiness. Alternate variables seem to matter–a lot.”

    PMT = pre-moderation time.

    How that works is you keep posting but Stu has to check your posts to ensure you aren’t being personally abusive (in my case to John Main) so after a certain amount of time I reckon it was when Stu got bored out of his skull having to read my every post I got released.

    Once your PMT posts are checked (can take anything about to 24 hours) they get uploaded in the meantime the thread has moved on and the chances of anyone reading your pre-modded post are zero.

    However you’ve got to keep going to prove to Stu you can be good.

For instance, in 2015 they were handed the mother of all majorities which should have resulted in the end of the UK union when the brexit vote went ahead.

    It was the SNP’s choice to renege on those tools, to defang our anti-union majorities rendering them useless, to show the uttermost contempt for the yes movement and to embark on the longest road of political stupidity saturated with virtue signalling, time wasting and unpopular gender identity nonsense, carrots, soundbites and vacuous promises.

    After 9 years of wasting opportunities, the SNP can no longer blame Westminster for the current situation. Now it is on them.

    They are responsible for misusing all the opportunities they were given to avoid placing Scotland in the situation if finds itself today. They could have done something about it but chose not to.

    If it is in your hand to stop an oppressor inflicting pain on your country folk and stealing your country’s resources but you choose to look the other way and allow it to continue, then you are no longer an innocent bystander. You have become the oppressor’s enabler and an accomplice.

    The SNP are today’s Westminster’s and the crown’s enablers and accomplices. Their useful idiots. Brexit has been imposed on Scotland because the SNP chose to preserve the union rather than using the 56 strong majority we gave them in 2015 to protect the Scottish people by ending this fake union.

    You asked did I watch Outlander on TV?

    I couldn’t watch it because I had already overdosed on Outlander. I read all the books and discussed them with a group of friends. It involved wine and a lot of laughs. I think there were about 8 books and by the time I was finished I had had enough of Jamie & his Sassenach.

    “These councilor’s allude to Fanon’s theoretical perspective of inferiorism but also to Bourdieu’s idea of symbolic violence whereby Scots not only participate in their own servitude but are the creators of it.”

    Indeed, and as Albert Memmi found, and as we can see in many ‘No’ voting Scots, certain groups among the colonized ‘positively crave dependence’. The essential message here is that the ‘colonial mindset’ is a psychological condition (itself an outcome of colonialism) that requires ‘painful treatment’; because the only ‘remedy’ for the ‘colonial condition’ is ‘liberation’ and a complete ‘break with the colonial system, not a compromise’. In other words, what we think we know of as ‘independence’.

    Do you think you might send a copy of your book to GCPH? I think there might be some interest in it.

    I found the HoC Library briefing on the sec 35 intervention interesting. The methods and language used to deprive colonial Canada, Ireland and Scotland has not changed over decades.

    Below is the opening paragraph of Burnett’s good article. It has relevance to some of what is saaid here.

    “The Scottish Cringe as described by Beveridge and Turnbull (1989) refers to the Scots lacking personal and political confidence in their ability to govern themselves. Beveridge and Turnbull (1989) argue the Scots suffer from a sense of psychological inferiority in which Scots have come to see themselves and they are seen by England i.e. as being inferior to and dependent upon the largesse of England. Sociological theorist Pierre Bourdieu’s concept of symbolic violence can be deployed as another means to understand Scotland’s sense of culture inferiority because this notion of Bourdieu is used to explain how the more powerful are able to structure the self-perception of the weak, so that social groups are not only conquered or colonised militarily by a more powerful nation as there is another defeat or war waged that is done via or by culture (Bourdieu and Waquarant 1992) i.e. Scots collude in and co–produce their subordination because they sincerely believe their culture is not equal to that of England. On this matter, Carol Craig (2003) argues that Scots are harshly disparaging to their own culture and by doing so create apprehension in the Scottish persona.”

    From the English bill of Rights act in 1689?

    Was queen Anne the last reigning Stuart in England Coronated as Queen of England and Wales?
    Yes.

    Was queen Anne the last reigning Stuart monarch of England Coronated Queen of Scots or Scotland?

    NO,

    Where and when does the “union of Crowns” of the two separate Countries and kingdoms.commence.

    Queen Anne whom died in 1714 was “not coronated queen of Scots or Scotland,” There was no official union of two Crowns without being coronated in both kingdoms.

    The political treaty of parliamentary union ended in 1707 when the parliament of Westminster in England dissolved and Extinguished the Scottish parliament from the treaty of union.

    Thus there is no union of the two Crowns of the two kingdoms officially, nor is there anything left of a Scottish and English parliamentary union after 1707.

    Anyone is invited to jump in prove me wrong. And answer the question.

    What was the date that Queen Anne, the last remaining “coronated queen of England and coronated ” as ” in England “Stuart Monarch of England,
    actually IN Scotland to officially be investured, swear the Scots Oath, and be Coronated with the crown of Scotland placed on her head as Queen of Scots,

    All monarchs of Scotland were Crown thus.

    Without a official coronation as Queen Anne of Scots,, she only wears the Crown of England and Wales.

    “Any chance you can help out with the “symbolic violence” mystery?”

    ‘Symbolic violence’ is a part of the theory of Cultural Imperialism, which is “the practice of promoting the culture or language of one nation in another”.

    This may involve imposing statues, town and street names, commemorations and ‘celebratory’ events etc, which symbolize the glorification of the dominant cultural/Imperial power. In colonial societies the oppressed native is forced to walk by and ‘suffer’ such statues and street names every day, and to celebrate the oppressors events, e.g. the recent faux crowning, state regulated media content forming another aspect of course.

    Which explains why an independent Ireland and many other former colonies got rid of its numerous British statues commemorating only the ‘greatness’ of their oppressor, i.e. a colonial cultural heritage legacy.

    There’s an 11 YO kid and her entire family was killed by an unidentified perp or perps, who are very likely to have belonged to a specific race and/or religion.

    The perp or perps have obviously committed a crime and should be punished.

    But they can’t be identified and so other possibly innocent people belonging to that specific race and/or religion can be punished instead.

    But in the heat of the moment, that specific race and/or religion can’t be identified specifically so anybody handy can be punished indiscriminately instead.

    Indiscriminate punishment of the uninvolved innocent, regardless of race or religion, means that everybody is a target, including you and me.

    That certainly explains why we are potential targets, every time we board a plane, but I really do wonder why this meets with your approval.

    Indeed.
    There are four ways to get out of the Gaza Strip :
    1. through Egypt (Sinai)
    2. through Israel
    3. by sea – but where to?
    4. by air – also, where to?

    Israel controls options 2, 3 & 4, and as a matter of interest it is safe to assume Egypt has no desire to allow a million terrorist nutters to enter its country.

    Israel is utterly wrong to describe the Hamas terrorists as animals. That is insulting to all animals.
    They are SAVAGES, mediaeval savages, and sad to say they are about to become the victims of their own actions.
    “As ye sow, so shall ye reap”.
    And, as usual, the innocent will suffer. Hamas knew that before they started this latest attack. Hamas doesn’t care about that, and they never have.

    I read that Humza’s wife is from Palestine and that its his inlaws that have been caught up in the carnage.

    I also read (on BBC no less) that the terrorists at the music festival wore Israeli military shirts – but have vague memory of something not dissimilar (without the slaughter) happening during their covid crackdown so inclined to be wary of reports to that effect, regardless:

    Propaganda spinning out of control is just one aspect of the danger though, incompetence at decision making level is arguably at a whole new level and leaders in the free world need to be very careful how they handle the situation and or articulate support imo

    eg If terrorists from Marseille were to shoot up a Parisian night club, the appropriate response must never be to cut water gas and electricity to the city before wiping it off the map and selling the vacant lot to Dubai (albeit encouraging such investment by other means could improve competition(s) for PSG, and possibly even help address some of the hypothetical psychosis at a more fundamental level)

    “This does not involve Scotland but I think it will eventually. The situation will get out of control and somehow we will be involved.”

    The responsibility for much that has and still is happening in the Mid East and elsewhere rests with our territory-greedy and deceitful Imperial neighbour, England-as-Britain. A Scottish army deployed at their command, our nation dragged into some 80 conflicts since WWII and a similar number prior to that. An independent Ireland has managed to avoid much of that, including loss of life and reputational damage globally.

    Conversely, it is difficult to see an independent Scotland as other than a more enlightened, peaceful, trading and developed society, instead of what we are under colonial rule: dumbed down, culturally assimilated, dragged as lackeys into any old conflict England-as-Britain ‘leads’ us, our own trade plundered, leaving Scotland an under-developed people and nation.

    No it is our problem. Sadly. The problems at home matter as much as global events.

    We had to pay to house the Ukranian refugees.

    We have sturgeon giving them £65 million.

    We’ve got Yousaf handing John Kerry £24 million.

    We’ll have politicians cancelled for being anti semites for criticising the massacre of the open air concentration camp.

    Scotland’s got a Muslim population. And they will be raging about it all.

    “You could be on to a winner there. As the hate crime bill includes descrimination, verbal or physically.”

    Indeed, and remembering that colonialism itself is based on ethnic discrimination and racism, which becomes institutionalised in a colonial society; albeit this reality is somewhat obscured by cultural assimilation, and with colonial racism also ‘internalised’ (i.e. accepted as ‘deserved’) by a colonised people.

    Not that a colonial administration would notice these essential dual levels of racism that the colonized group must suffer. The colonial political class and pampered bourgeoisie can see only another aspect of racism, but it is not the suffering of the racially oppressed native people seeking liberation.

    It’s not my campaign, Ruby. I simply stepped forward at the time to tell everyone they had better get this checked. Look upon it as a “Julian Assange” story. Since you keep on mentioning it, time after time after time after time, it is coming to an end soon. Any day now in fact.

    Whose campaign is it?

    Do they have a website?

    Any press coverage?

    Which school is it?

    What does Julian Assange have to do with it.

    Well, Humza, Yousaf has relatives in the Gaza strip. So there’s a personal connection with the first minister.

    The American position to back Israel unequivocally and their right to respond will tear apart the country.

    I see Elon Musk is going to face a 6% fine if he doesn’t block pro Palestine posts. By the EU.

    They don’t like him anymore as he won’t allow them to use starlink to kill Russians.

    We know the EU has been captured by the military. Which is why if you Google the EU today. You’ll see they want the Israeli Iron done system for Europe.

    And why Urseloa Von der Lynn – who’s married to the ceo of Pfizer – have you got your 10th booster?

    She’s blood thirsty for Palestinian blood and an EU army. They want an aircraft carrier. Google it.

    And then of course there’s juryless trials. So that the Journalist jailing Scotland of course can imprison political opponents like Vladamir Putin himself.

    Gas prices will go out of control if the Americans get involved with Iran over this Gaza massacre. Which it looks like it’s all kicking off.

    Britain always gets sucked in. We voted no we’re stuck with British foreign policy we don’t agree with. And we’re the Americans permenant aircraft carrier. For the nuclear bombs who’s colonised by who you say?

    The 500 million euros for zelensky from the EU Peace Fund to buy weapons for urkraine. I’ve learned all this from wings in recent weeks. Fascinating.

    The deep state in action will ensure were dragged into this war it’s non stop coverage on the TV. Such is the power and reach of the Israeli lobby in Scotland.

    With help from the Hillary Clinton foundation of course, remember we know that she doesn’t like comedy events at the fringe. We know from the leaked emails that she was raging about it.

    Such is, the threat of Glasgow, Scotland and anyone shattering the western fragility.

    That the Israeli’s have to have their military surveillance cameras on glasgow city centre to figure out the sexual preferences of those they are spying on.

    As we know. The Israeli lobby in Scotland seem to be interested in this data collection which caused their own Palestinian death squad to quit x44.

    They signed a letter saying “no”

    It’s why the trees are getting cut down. Trees just get in the way. As I’ve learned from wings.

    Meanwhile… What else is going down?

    Stephen Flynn. It is an honour Mr zelensky it is an honour. A swift response to Palestine is needed. We stand with Israel.

    Scottish independence off the agenda by the SNP. Loyal only to the false green agenda and war mongering.

    So that your energy bills are through the roof and your living off £5 sandwich meal, deals and sky high cost of living. Subdued and desperate and in a, permenantly diseased state of destitution. In your 15 minute city. I believe it all now. Seen it all. Believe it.

    So the Gaza massacre absolutely will affect us and is worth our full attention.

    We know that the leaders of the western world have no intelligence. Which is, why Canada was applauding the nazi war criminal that probably killed Jews ahaha. It’s so bad.

    Joe Biden has dementia. He should be nowhere near power.

    It’s fucking mental man.

    @Sam 2:26

    I fully agree with the start of your post. My admiration for Norway turned into a full-blown love affair just a couple of weeks ago.

    That’s because I discovered that the free, proud, independent, rich Norwegians are, per capita, the biggest contributors to that other free, proud, independent, not so rich country on the other side of Europe that is trying to expel the murderous aggressor from within its borders.

    I look forwards to the day when an iScotland marches in lockstep with our Norwegian brothers and sisters.
