Theresa May talks of the "British Dream", presumably oblivious to the fact, that for a great many, Tory Britain is a living nightmare. As for her "precious Union", it has become pure poison.
Anus Sarwar claims he's a socialist, and he's clearly not, which makes him deluded or dishonest. Either ought to preclude him from succession Kezia Dugdale.
The British Monarchy is like the BBC. It doesnt matter that you don't subscribe to it, you're still compelled to pay for it. But that's not enough, no, you're expected to love it as well.
As 'vanity project(s)' go, the Queensferry Crossing; literally bridge-building, is wholly worthwhile. Renewing Trident, building aircraft carriers; deluded determination 'to remain a fully engaged world power' is not.
Tories, red, blue, and otherwise, insist that Scotland is dependent. Blue Tories, the Tories in power at Westminster, deeply despise dependency, demonising the disabled and the dispossessed. Yet they are apparently content to 'subsidise' Scotland. I wonder about that. So should you.
The Trump Administration appears to be in chaos. As does the Tory Government at Westminster. We really could do without the independence movement going the same way.
This general election campaign has, and continues to, reinforce just how alien the British State has become to me. Independence just cannot come soon enough.
Almost exactly 20 years since Tony Blair took office, and 10 since he stood down, we appear to be going backwards. The Tories of 2017 are, if anything, worse than those of 1997. Even Major seems preferable to May. Do not be surprised, if we all wake up the morning after the general election, and find that it might as well be 1897.
I had thought that Scotland had long since realised, that unless you are extremely wealthy, enjoy private healthcare, a generous private pension scheme, and have your children privately educated, it makes no sense whatsoever to vote Tory. And yet, there is persistent talk in the media, and the occasional poll, that suggests that the Tories could win up to 8 seats in Scotland at the general election. Even the Tories are behaving as if they believe it. Where have all these Tory voters in Scotland been for the last 20 years? Why are they (supposedly) coming out of the woodwork now? What has changed, other than that if anything, the Tories are getting nastier, not nicer?
For as long as I can remember, the Tories have always been pure poison. It is just that the longer they are in power, the further the mask slips.
