Healing the Cracks.
The recent referendum has been blamed for creating a schism in the Scottish psyche. This current piece of southern british banter is proving to be more of a propaganda release for the bitter together band of deluded brothers that form the first ranks from the westminster tactical stance to crush a mythical Scottish rebellion. This is another media blame tool that is being bandied about to muddy the waters till the next rigged elections in 2020 and this 20/20 vision is in need of an optician. It lacks the insight into the political awakening that is currently reforming the Scottish sense of identity as Scotland goes through a reformation of political perceptions.
The original split in the Scottish psyche was started by the highlanders and the ‘lowlanders’, this was the main target of the British invaders and was further compounded by Longchamps as he drove to divide and conquer this nation. The Belted Earls that were banished and moved to Scotland and used their heraldry to create the clan crests in their new lands (the little infiltrators), they are the wolf among the sheep and the Fenrir cubs began the laws of attrition that lead to the clearances. The Highlander lowlanders divide was further exploited by Longchamps and the banished cubs to drive a deeper wedge in the Scottish psyche. The so called english lands that were payment for some of the clans were just a reinstatement of family piles from the original banished earls. The second big fracture to further crack the rock of ages had to wait till the miners strike where family was turned against family and friend against friend on the picket lines of the modern day hold outs and the scabs that sold out, and still the mines have disappeared and the divide is still there. The third and final blow was the fracture caused by the modern day freedom fighters as they tried to hold on to their own country, while the bitter together sell outs were back in force in George Square. The final headcount that the election produced a massive SNP majority as the old hard line division is losing members with the passing of time. 2016 should still see a massive SNP support to keep Nicola in place till the 2020 foresight.
The original split showed by the highlanders and the lowlanders clearly created two camps north of the border. The Highlander holdouts who dug their heels in while the lowlanders sellouts turned their back and took the bribes or crumbled to the acts of attrition from the southern invaders. As the divide deepened the injury of invasion caused the depth of distrust in the Highlander’s hearts for their own sellouts and their masters. The hard line highlanders and their hold out policy was further tested as their younger generations were being driven out of hearth and home in the clearances. While the sellouts were conscripted into the so called union. The war of attrition began in earnest then. This tactics are still being employed today by the modern day oppressor as they make it impossible for the holdouts as they never call us. The so called unionist partners just cant seem to change their spots.
The general blame mechanism that has been leveled at the modern day 45% rebellion from the westminster propaganda machine is further hampered and possibly falling on deaf ears as the floundering red herrings the old labour party have all but disappeared in the phoenix fire of the revivalist Scottish pride rising up from the ashes of the last general election landslide by the 56 new SNP workers. Now that this nation is used to the tactics of fear and intimidation that was used against them by the southern land grabbing british invaders and dictators. Their bitter together campaign has proven since the election that they will never ever keep their word and that we are not partners in a union but a commodity for their own uses.
This nations 1.6 million modern day rebels and last vestiges of the children’s children from the original holdouts are now off their knees and marching to a modern day tune of independence and are finally about to say that enough is finally enough. Next year should see a further advance in the cause as the swollen ranks of the SNP the guard dog at the Westminster door settles into the dog house that is the seat of non-representatives and keeps nipping at the heels of the indifferent masters to the whole nation they are supposed to be governing. They do confuse responsibility with the stupid notion of ownership, not what a union of equals would suggest but there you have it. So lets hope that Nicola can still be there to spearhead the second campaign for the weary hearts and minds of an asset stripped nation as it gets from its collective knees to its feet as it begins the march to freedom.
So in 2020 lets hope that we have 20/20 foresight that is the insight of perception from 20/14 hindsight. And gives this nation a clearer vision of a better future for all of us.
Perception with Insight
With a final SNP vote count of 1,454,436. The political Tsunami which sprung out of the Independence Referendum, turned the tide of sneaky Westminster back door actions and interfering ways. The hard clout on the snout that they got was even more annoying when the newbies ignored the Commons traditional seating stances (er if you see what I mean). The facts are quite astonishing the result is unprecedented in any political system in the world today. 50 new seats, the old vanguard defeated and almost routed off the Scottish political map. The Labour Conservative and Liberal annihilation in Scotland has left this nation more aware of what can be achieved with a willingness to apply yourself to the given task, can produce landslide changes in the political landscape. The new Scottish political voice cannot be silenced while the non voters are too few in numbers and too widely spread to be effective or to make a significant impact in voting results. This should have been obvious to any anonymous brand of political activity. The other parties have been blooded and the fifty new scalps are now hanging from the SNP banners.
The post mortem of the ‘Tsunami’ will be ongoing and protracted. The achievements of the first minister are outstanding. She came out of the shadow of a formidable politician Alexander Salmond, under who’s wing she served a seven year apprenticeship, has shown that she has indeed learned from the master. This woman never halted from the IndyRef and hit the campaign trail ground running to spear head the assault on the Westminster Elite and provided her with another string to her bow in her arsenal of political tools for the coming struggle to effect changes in the governance of the people of Scotland.
The fact that Nicola Sturgeon is now an iconic figure for women’s causes in the country cannot go by without a mention either, as the amount of women voters must surely have had some impact on the final vote. While the own goals scored by the opposition cannot be ignored either. This plus the real idea that a great number of Scottish voters used the vote to get a head count of the Scottish army of voter willing to add their weight to the political system and helped swing the final vote cannot be ignored either. Now the task is set to wrestle as much power back to the country from the Westminster base is just about to begin in earnest.
The Indyref had a great swell in the political interest of the nation in just the last hundred days, the No vote result galvanised so many just a bit too late in the day to swing it to a Yes result. This had the effect of leaving Scotland wondering just how many of us think that we can govern ourselves and still work in a new fiscal partnership with the British coalition, sovereignty and home rule are now in the thinking and considerations of the new Scottish youth voters and some of the old vanguard are now coming on board as they realise what a difference this will make to the living standards of everyone that lives within the Scotland borders.
The swell in the Indyref numbers at the tail end caught the Westminster leaders by surprise and left them without enough time to take positive action, against the fated if not now inevitable turning of the political tide in Scotland. The campaign trail was littered with half cocked actions by the likes of Jim Murphy and even Gordon Brown was shown what the real people of Scotland really thought about them, Douglas Alexander and a few more notables were handed their P45’s at the poles and sent packing to think again.
This when coupled with the Labour tactics and Conservative lording It over the four nations of Britain. Saw the electorate in Scotland backed into a corner by austerity terror threats to the weakest and poorest in the land, as they appear to intend to want to keep filling the coffers of their corporate masters. The labour were in part also ousted by the English voters that had enough of the Labour lottery winning tactics of spend, spend, spend. While the UKIP and the Liberals took a tanking on the gory battle field of British politics voting system.
So a hefty congratulations to the Nicola and the SNP hard working newbies and volunteers that with their effort made this happen for this decisive win in a game that we traditionally have never ever won in.Hope over fear has shown what can be achieved.
From the 45%ers to the 56%ers of 1,454,436 votes and still rising Saor Alba. The tide is turned and the Scottish waters are next.
The forecasters are all over the shop again with their storm bombs and their forecast generalisations. The predictions again show a distinct lack of foresight and accuracy that is quite honestly getting more than a little embarrassing. The forecasters are beginning to behave more than a little like the politicians of the post referendum debacle as they change stories, swap stances and infiltrate other parties (keep your eye on them), and while a leopard cannot change its spots it can purr like a kitten when it pleases. Pre election rats leaving the sinking ship is very suspicious both in their timing and their actual credentials. Buyer beware springs to mind for any new fortunate group ranks that are being swollen by ship jumping pre-election deserters?
The forecasts about the weather have been just as accurate as most election pledges, promises and the usual round of bribes and incentives, from the we want to rule you all, our way and we will give you these concession’s if they don’t get in the way of our master plans, which we will not tell you about as we don’t have to declare anything, and will keep implementing as we see fit when you elect us in, even when we unelected-ly coalition ourselves in .
First the forecast was for four-week period for Frozen Britain this stated that the Islands were all expected to be plunged into a bleak winter. Then we woke on Friday and ‘Britain’ was experiencing a frost blanketed morning, but it turned out to be just Kent, while Glasgow had a little bit of ice and only the distant peaks showed white caps of frost or light snow that were gone by the next day. Excessive use of exaggeration guys. In winter forecasting it could all be about elevation guys. Then it was all about a warming and well you get the picture.
Glasgow Fri 12/12/14 Campsies.

While the period of climate change was under way with the convergence of the nine realms, the weather changes have had particular country and ethnic results. America has been experiencing some of the Baltic’s front and temperature dips in winter, cold fronts and drifts. The effect that it has had is the American is a little bit more reserved for the exchange and more than a little subdued from the effects. In the summer evidence that the southern states storms have settled back into a more spaced out pattern is starting to show while life is going on as normal.
The summer for the Russian bears that were finally getting out of the winter cave were stretching their legs, leaning on neighbour s and pissing off the world leaders with their bolshie behaviour. High spirits abounded with some tailgating the locals and taking the toys (subs planes etc) out for a spin as well as Vlad getting out and about on some field trips is all good for the weather incarcerated bears to get out and mark territory and mate, they are now recruiting males that breed indiscriminately or prolifically must be suffering from some diminished or chilled ardour in the Baltic’s then, more than just a breeze about their knees then. While their new Santa List for xmass has just been revealed.
While Britain experienced a schism in its psyche that produced a cold front from the south and a chill wind from north of the borders. It is beginning to show marked differences in weather fronts as well, flooding is becoming normal south of the divide especially in autumn through winter and even into spring in some areas. Skiers are facing delays in their favourite resorts as the winter delays of snow now could bolster the Aspen resorts clientele making a tidy profit for their industry, or even New York state if the cold front becomes settled there.
So as we all settle down to the approaching festive season we are again looking at too many repeats on terrestrial TV as ‘they’ try to wean us on to pay for view so that only the elite will be informed and all others will be ostracised in the process adding to the schism in our social differences. As newspapers are all facing a printing death as will magazines as we all drive forward on the progress locomotive that is steaming ahead to paperless (no such thing, they are aiming for paper free) offices. This will remove receipts to some form of handheld device that is quite a Space 1999 type of universal communicator, computer and information center, money personal details, medical records, or to you and me the next generation of smart phone one without a breakable screen. Ah the next generation x devices already on the xmass lists and wish lists of the programmed populace of the western world.
Well as this year is heading for a close would like to take the time to wish everyone a great holiday, both for xmass and for the new year, where hopefully we will see a new political landscape by the spring time for Scotland. Dear Santa on the next election can you please wake Scotland up enough to take care of its own business as the present set of unelected managers are too crooked to trust and have a collective hidden agenda, with TTIP, and fracking up the landscape. So lest make it a golden turnout Scotland Needs Protecting, so remember what SNP stands for.
It still amazes me that people think that Scotland can play Westminster politics and win for Scotland. It only works for the English at home and the English residents in their land grabbed footholds in Northern Ireland, Southern Scotland, Southern Wales where they are all alright Jack.
The new jobs creation program for the submarines at Faslane, when coupled with the Westminster withholding of job creation powers for Scotland, will see a new influx of Westminster voter to swell the traitorous ranks in the lowlands. The housing waiting list are already prejudicial to the indigenous Scott that is unemployed or on disability or benefits of any kind. While new housing associations will fast track new workers into the area using the know associates (work boss colleagues) or existing family as the English like to do. Will have the effect of disenfranchising the indigenous in their own lands. Oh yes and Ian Duncan Smith wants to limit people to two children per household and that will keep Scotland’s population at the present levels, while new jobs are created from the south and a mobile workforce is drafted in. All Scottish local authorities are showing a distinct bias to Westminster lead policies that are not on any manifesto and have a back door staging action. Council tax, bedroom tax and yet more taxes for the asset strippers from next door. They really are the grinch at the festive table.
So lest make 2015 a golden year for Scotland and regain our sovereignty to get these inequalities addressed in our own land. All the best for the festive season one and all.
