I think too often we hold back on things that need saying in case we possibly upset some Unionists that may or may not vote yes next time.
I have had fellow Yessers trying to ask me to be nice to the Scottish Journos,or propagandists as I prefer to call them,the theory being they might just start telling the truth if we are nice to them.
A load of bolloks as far as I am concerned and as the Derek Bateman expose recently showed,the 4th Estate and the British placemen and women in Scotland have a cosy relationship while defending the status quo of the UK .
The reaction by the employees of the foreign owned Media to Derek Bateman’s Article showed you all exactly how these people think and act.
They were not embarrassed or ashamed that they had been exposed as nothing more than cut and paste office clerks,they were enraged because they had been exposed as the fraudsters they have always been,not dedicated investigative journalists risking life and limb to defend the public from the corrupt hand of the elite and establishment,they were shown to be part of the problem ,not part of the solution.
Best to understand,no matter how nice you are to them they will never report the truth,never give you a fair and balanced media,they will never reveal the truth about the ineptitude or failings of the UK,it just won’t ever happen.
Save yourself a lot of grief, accept that and move on, they are Brits and sycophants to the ruling British elite.
They are part of a cult that think they are superior,more intelligent,better educated from a higher social class than scummy people like you and me that vote SNP or for Independence.
They have managed to get on to the second rung of the 500 rung UK Elite Ladder and they do not want anyone else getting on to that ,especially ones of a lower class like you and me that actually want to see equality and fairness in their society.
The reality they choose to ignore is the elite will never allow them to climb higher up the ladder,although they would never admit it,they know the real elite view the 2nd rung cult as nothing more than useful peasants.
These Brits are the type of people that genuinely dislike most foreigners and think them inferior to Brits like them.
They agree with people like Trump,Farage or Le Pen when they are disparaging the non white,non Christian refugees,in their eyes nothing comes close to the Anglo/American model of inequality and a society of have and have nots.
They pretend in public to be ‘politically correct’ in all matters but in private they enjoy nothing more than the old Bernard Manning type race jokes, quips about Gays, Asians, non whites,Catholics,Jews,Muslims, Johnny Foreigner of course those descriptive words will not be deployed the more pejorative language will be deployed, when they are in private.
If you think I am exaggerating go and visit some right wing type forums and read for yourself.
Today they are all wishing they had a British leader that would ‘say it how it is’ just like Trump did yesterday when referring to Haiti, Africa and Mexico and by default all the peoples of those nations as shitholes.
They actually envy that and despise us even more for being offended by Trump or Farage or any one of the many others in UK that hate gypsies,the sick, the unemployed,foreign people,colored people,disabled,geriatric,gay,or transgender individuals.
Our dislike of this racism and prejudice just confirms to them their belief we are ill educated duped fools.
Anyone of those that are not of the British elite stock or ardent supporters of it and its superiority are viewed as somehow suspicious.
It is telling that most of those that Voted No in 2014, Brexit, Tory at every election are the same types that hate every other nation,creed , foreign languages and Customs, except funnily enough, those from USA.
You never hear a bad word about America or Americans from these right wing neo con types.
The USA the ‘richest’ nation on the planet,yet the nation with the worst inequality,almost 12% of their entire population have no healthcare cover whatsoever,so if they take sick tomorrow they will get no treatment.
God forbid should they develop cancer,heart disease,or some other horrible condition because then their chances of survival are zero.
The official poverty rate in USA is 13.5 percent, based on the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2015 estimates. That year, an estimated 43.1 million Americans lived in poverty according to the official measure. According to supplemental poverty measure, the poverty rate was 14.3 percent.
The USA incarcerates more of its population than any their nation on the planet,including China or Russia who they love to lecture on human rights, go figure that one out ,seems to me Putin and Xi Jinping should be the ones talking about human rights abuses in USA not the other way around.!
In October 2013, the incarceration rate of the United States of America was the highest in the world, at 716 per 100,000 of the national population. While the United States represents about 4.4 percent of the world’s population, it houses around 22 percent of the world’s prisoners.
While our establishment, media,politicians have spent decades disparaging everything from EU and European mainland they crave the American model in everything from healthcare ,economics,law and order everything it seems but actually being the 51st State officially.
Where you have an EU that has worker’s rights and social welfare as an integral part of the ethos of the EU,the Brits get a hardon for the low tax,low regulation small government model of the USA.
This let’s take back control ,if the Tories get their way could lead to an exact mirror of the American model.
Do any of you want to live in a country of 65 million that has,nearly 8million with no access to healthcare,10million in poverty, nearly 500k in jails?
Daily the language of Farage, Boris, Gove ,May,and the antics of their cheerleaders in the British Media and Establishment just hardens my resolve to see us get out of this vile accursed Union as quickly as possible.
Therefore friends I must respectfully decline the suggestion that I should be nice and gentle to anyone that openly supports this lot that want to take us down the road of ruin.
The day is coming soon,we must not be found wanting this time.
