Come on, it’s all getting a bit silly now. It’s not like the “we cannaes” were ever presenting coherent, well thought out arguments before, but the latest offering from George Robertson? Barely a day after Talkingoutofhisanas tells us he’ll be unleashing Robertson, Reid, Liddell and Foulkes like the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, we get guff like “independence would be cataclysmic.”
Georgie Porgie, Puddin’ and Pie,
Dissed the Scots, made up some lies…
I’ve not long finished sorting his profile out over on Tory Hoose and he comes out with this crap? Come off it, the lighter nights are here and the garden beckons. I’ve got better things to do than update sites every time the likes of him makes a total erse of himself.
Anyway, self-determination is not “a bad idea”, not even “economically disastrous”, but cataclysmic. All of a sudden we’re getting Biblical language just to see if we’ll finally get the message on what a total catastrophe it would be if we were to try and run our own affairs like… oh, I don’t know… every other normal country? I think the word “Lord” has gone to his head a wee bit. Armageddon the feeling that they’re not too enamoured with the whole idea at all. I certainly look forward to the day when there’s an Exodus of him and his like from their public-subsidised parasitical existence.
Wow – a cataclysm. What next? A plague of midges? I’ve been to Glen Affric on holiday – doesn’t faze me in the slightest. The sun will be hidden and darkness befall the whole land? This is Scotland – we get summers like that all the time.
Just a few days after we lose a truly great Scottish patriot we have the likes of him swanning off on a jolly where he can talk his own homeland down? The Americans must think we’re absolutely stark raving mad for not just tolerating folk like that but actually paying them to continually have a go at us. Where do you even start with his BS?
“The loudest cheers for the breakup of Britain would be from our adversaries and from our enemies. For the second military power in the West to shatter this year would be cataclysmic in geopolitical terms.”
And thanks to your precious Westminster we’ve got a hell of a lot more enemies than we used to have.
“This divorce would rob the West of a serious partner just when solidity and cool nerves are going to be vital.”
Strange. We’re always being told how insignificant we are, how we couldn’t afford to defend ourselves properly and yet our independence would usher in the end of the world? Make your minds up.
“Nobody should underestimate the effect all of that would have on existing global balances and the forces of darkness would simply love it.”
Nope – me either. His American audience must truly have been sitting slack-jawed while listening to this tripe, especially the bit about the American Civil War being more relevant to the debate than the Revolutionary one thereby placing a burden on the shoulders of poetic licence that it must’ve found very difficult to bear.
And on and on. Something missing though… oops there we go – “we have in Scotland a legislative parliament which has full powers on health, education, transport, the legal system, local administration, agriculture, land, tourism and practically every other domestic field. We have, indeed, as Scots, got the best of both worlds.” Bingo – full house.
Up spoke a numptie called George
“Let’s not break the bonds that we’ve forged
I’d feel such great tension
If I lost my pension
And my place at the trough where I gorge.”
