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.
