The Meerkat Of Badenoch And SNP Fairytales
A few days ago there was delight in the independence Yes camp with the announcement that the Treasury would continue to honour debts amassed by the UK if Scotland becomes independent.
Being the cynic I am I delved a little deeper and this gesture is not as benevolent as it may seem. The lovely Demetrius points that out.
Danny Alexander may be no wolf but he’s no pussy cat either. He’s promoting the conliblab anti-independence agenda. Of course an independent Scotland would pay its fair share of the UK debt when it’s independent. It always has done - and more.
However much you believe in coincidences, but I’m always beware of a species which is portrayed in wolves’ clothing - particularly when the Wolf of Badenoch is currently part of the renovations being carried out in the ancient part of Dunkeld Cathedral.
it’s with my cynical eye I read the article about Nicola Sturgeon’s speech in Edinburgh last night.
“The EU is not in the business of throwing out its citizens, of ignoring democratic processes, of reducing co-operation and cutting the size of the EU.
The bold is mine. I’m still astonished at prominent Scottish politician voicing such nonsense. Even pro-EU politicians are very aware that the EU lacks any form of democracy. Its accounts haven’t been signed off for 11 years. Any organisation or business which operates in that manner is certainly not democratic.
If the SNP think the EU will be throwing money at an independent Scotland for no return then they’ve lost the plot. The cost will be much higher anyone ever imagined.
