The speed of the capitulation by the British Labour Party in Wales yesterday came as no surprise to many of us that are not members of that Britnat Unionist cult.
The British elite must be sniggering at just how easy it was to get the gullible Welsh Brits to fall into line with what London needed and in the timescales required.
Leanne Wood summed it up perfectly in the senedd :-
“Our leverage has gone, leadership lost, and parliament weakened. This is a Labour-Tory stitch-up like no other.”
“When he sells this parliament and my country’s democracy to Westminster he can excuse my lack of conciliatory tone.”
Meanwhile in Scotland the Britnat placemen and women gave a huge sigh of relief they could at last stop the pretence that they were giving a tuppenny toss about Scotland, Holyrood, the Democracy of Scotland and especially they could stop pretending they cared about devolution or the people.
They are now free to get back to what they do best, betraying all of those things and shouting SNP Bad.
Neil Findlay said it “would be wrong for the SNP government to play politics with devolution in order to further their goal of independence”.
Mr Findlay is always great for hypocrisy and irony rolled into one statement, it is one of his unique characteristics.
He encapsulates the Britnat cult addiction there is no subject or topic in the English language that he, or they cannot turn into an SNP Bad quote.
You could be discussing the climate in the Amazon and Findlay and his ilk could somehow find an SNP bad connection.
Findlay is of course not alone, the Holyrood chamber is awash with unionist addicts and just like the ones we encounter every day on social media or in the workplace they have nothing positive to say about Scotland, more surprising is that they cannot even be positive about their beloved UK.
I have demonstrated before the inability of Unionists to clearly define just three unique benefits that are only a available inside the UK.
We have all asked in vain for any unionist to give us the positive case for the British union, if we all live to be 103, I suggest we will all still be waiting on the answer to that question.
Be assured if there was a positive case for the Union we would have heard it by now, their silence says it all.
Just this week I challenged Alex Massie to tell us the three things, silence of course, he was able to come on line and tell us how poor David Torrance had been hounded from his job as a propagandist by the big bad cybernats but couldn’t display his verbosity when it came to talking up the British Union he so blindly follows.
Richard Leonard on receiving a diktat from London to explain to him his thought for the day forgot the addendum of SNP Bad and had to delete his first tweet then replace it with one saying Tories Bad, SNP even worse.
The big idea from Corbyn’s mob was to increase Child Allowance by £5 a week per child, a worthwhile idea to certainly explore, I was interested so I politely asked for more details on the idea.
When asked how this could be funded from within the fixed budget the Scottish Parliament receives Richard remained silent.
I have even offered Richard Leonard a spot on The Sunday Interview Show to explain this policy and to extol the virtues of British Unionism to a large audience of Yessers many of whom are ex-Labour voters, again silence.
It begs the question, if they believe so strongly in this British Union then why can they not articulate a positive case for the UK?
Why do they only ever ask questions but always refuse to answer any questions put to them?
The answer is of course there is no positive case for the Union and they are merely following because they were hooked and now have this terrible addiction.
Like all addictions it will take till they ‘hit the gutter’ before they can rid themselves of this debilitating addiction.
Recovering smokers, alcoholics, gambling addicts, junkies will all tell you the same story, all of the sensible arguments against their addiction had no effect whatsoever, they made up their own minds to finally end their particular filthy habit.
They had to come to the realisation all by themselves that their addiction was not in their own or family’s best interests.
I know, as an ex-smoker myself that all the pictures of blackened lungs all the horror stories of strokes, heart attacks, COPD, lung cancer, people telling me how I was wasting so much money, etc. etc. all landed on deaf ears till I decided for myself that I wanted to stop, after that stopping smoking was the easiest thing in the world.
Those of you that used to be opposed to independence and voted unionist ask yourselves this, did someone talk you round, did a billboard suddenly hit you like a bolt from the blue and you went from Britnat fanatic to Yesser in an instant or did you gradually make up your own mind from all the facts available to you?
I do not believe you can change a mindset in one meeting with one phrase or giving a list of policies.
Anyone that makes the switch has to arrive there all by themselves, yes we have to make the information available, we need to be positive, we need to make them question themselves and the Union, however people will only come over to our side when they have convinced themselves.
I was in Sales & Marketing all my days and contrary to the popular misconception you cannot gain your customers by selling them something they do not need or will never use that is just nonsense.
Very few people every buy off of a brochure, or a billboard or a tv advert, they all help to add to the decision but no single thing is the magic bullet.
Good salesmen do not need to sell anything they merely create the circumstances for someone to reach a decision and then the customer will make the decision and buy all by themselves.
The Unionist salesmen are shysters, and they are selling snake oil and sooner or later the people come to the realisation that the elixir these people are selling cure none of their ails and that the best medicine for us all is the medicine of Independence, available at all good polling stations near you.
You need to become good salesmen and women, yes provide the brochures through the letter boxes, have the street stalls, the marches and rallies that advertise,be there to answer the questions, do not browbeat. and the most important listen,always remember god gave us two ears to hear and only one tongue to speak with, remember that listening is the most important thing, not talking and let them make up their own minds with just gentle conversation.
