The shitty shreds of May

Sometimes you can progress just by standing still. Sometimes you can win by doing nothing much at all. Sometimes you win by holding firm to your beliefs and allowing your opponents to destroy themselves. The writer Aldous Huxley, author of Brave New World, once said that people have an infinite capacity for taking things for granted. That’s also true of the Westminster parliament’s attitude to Scotland. Arrogance is taking what a nation offers for granted, wisdom lies in taking what a nation offers with gratitude. There is no gratitude from the Westminster system, only the arrogance of entitlement. Their arrogance is destroying them.

Even more than because those of us who believe in independence succeed in promoting the case for independence, Scotland will achieve independence because the case for remaining a part of the UK has been destroyed by those who believe in the UK. Each of those who say that they love Scotland’s place within the UK and who are entrusted with protecting it has killed the thing they love. If you love something, you must nuture it, cherish it. You must give it an opportunity to breathe, to stretch out. Love means granting space, giving respect. Love means saying sorry. Scotland doesn’t get love from our Westminster rulers, instead we’re treated like a chained captive in a basement playing out the role of the submissive in fifty shades of red white and blue.

It’s human nature to take things for granted when there is no threat of losing them. During the 2014 referendum, in those last few weeks when Westminster’s politicians descended into full blown panic with the realisation that Scotland was actually serious, that Scotland just might really vote for independence, for a short and glorious time Scotland was not taken for granted by Westminster. We were told how much we were loved, how necessary we were. We were promised that we were equal partners in a family of nations, a vital part of the most perfect union ever created.

What cut and wounded so deeply wasn’t so much the betrayal of the promise that Scotland’s parliament would be granted more powers, entrenched powers, promised that no changes could be made to the devolution settlement without its express consent. What really hurt the cause of British nationalism in Scotland was the betrayal of the promise that this country would be listened to, that it was an active partner in deciding its own destiny. What really hurt was the realisation that the second that there was no longer any immediate threat of Scottish independence, Westminster returned to its arrogant and high handed business as usual. Out with the protestations of love and affection, and back to the contempt and disdain. So much for all the fine promises, the devolution settlement has been reduced to the shitty shreds of May. That’s not what we voted for in 2014. That’s not what we voted for in 1997.

Which means that Scotland is left asking itself, the question that will be forefront and centre in the next independence referendum, what sort of union is it where the smaller nation can only get listened to by threatening to leave. What sort of union is it when the smaller nation has no means at all of holding the joint parliament to account for commitments and promises that are made to it. What place does Scotland have in a United Kingdom which neither consults with nor takes into account the concerns and needs of Scotland. And the answer is, it’s no union at all. Scotland’s place is the same as that of Lincolnshire County Council.

A union isn’t an event. A union is a long and complex dance, a giving and taking, a balancing and rebalancing. A successful union poises itself between the expectations of those who participate in it. A successful union liberates its partners. If you want a union to last you must never abuse it. A successful union is a safe place, where those who participate in it are able to be heard and able to influence.

But that’s not what Scotland experiences in this so-called union. A good union is like a good marriage, and in a good marriage what’s important isn’t how you deal with the things you have in common, with the things you agree on. What’s important is how you deal with the things that are different between you, with the things you disagree on. As part of the UK Scotland is dictated to, it is given instructions. It is limited and constrained, unable to shape the course of events.

The union is dead, it was killed by British nationalists. The only way that the arrogant colonial governors in Westminster will learn the worth and value of Scotland is when they no longer possess it. The union is ending, not because of the entreaties of those of us who strive for independence, but because of the arrogance and presumption of those who call themselves unionists.

Scotland won’t become independent because of those of us who are committed to independence. It will be because those in Scotland who didn’t feel strongly about it will look upon the so-called union and realise that there’s nothing in it, that it’s a hollow promise, that it’s based upon a lie.

This coming independence referendum will be a very different proposition from the previous one. In 2014 we had to argue the case for independence, but the case for the union was taken for granted. Next time round that won’t be so. The case for the union, the security and stability that it promised, the status quo, the guarantee that things would remain the same, that’s been destroyed by Brexit and the insane contradictions of this Conservative government. There is no safety and stability in the UK any more. There is only the choice between two uncertain futures, one which Scotland is powerless to influence, or one which Scotland gets to determine.

The choice facing Scotland now is the choice between being a country, being a nation, being a sovereign state which makes its own decisions, or being a glorified county council in a unitary Greater Brexitshire which prioritises the politics of the Boris Johnsons and Jacob Rees Moggs of this world. There are no other options. Choose a voice, or choose being silenced and left with the shitty shreds of May.  The union is already dead.  The only question left is whether Scotland wants to continue to be shackled to its corpse.

I won’t be blogging this coming week as I have another commitment that I can’t get out of. Sadly it doesn’t involve traipsing off to furren pairts. Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.

  2. Andy Anderson says:

    You are correct as usual Paul.

    For my sanity I hope the opinion polls start to move soon. Surely people, soft NO voters, can see what is going on around them.

    Even the Governments ministry of propaganda (BBC) is being gloomy about Brexit. Also we now see rare pro Scottish news in printed media. Even in the Record!!

    The British Nationalist government and their lackies are starting to look stressed and saying even more stupid things. Love and respect for Scotland is non existent in deeds, words, or actions.

    If we are all trying to sell independence then the polls should be moving. They are not, so many of us are not being active. If we are all active and the polls stay put we have a problem.

    • Illy says:

      The polls aren’t moving because people haven’t been forced to actually look at the question.

      Once there’s a hard date for a referendum, they will start to think.

  3. On the 29th May 2019, they expect us Scots, who voted 62% Remain, and rising steadily as I type, to cut ourselves off from Continental Europe, and follow England and Wales into the international wilderness.
    We shall be forbidden to travel, work, or resettle/retire in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, by the edict of an English No Deal Hard Brexit Right Wing Laissez Faire WTO US facing England.
    Now I have yet to get my head around how the WM Right Wing government, propped up by a Billion Magic Money Tree Bribe to the Fundamentalist Christian bigots of NI following May’s disastrous gamble of calling a GE only to have her majority wiped out, get to be the only representatives on the Brexit negotiaiting Team.

    They are negotiating a Rees Mogg Boris Johnson Alt-Right Deal, and will smash Human Rights, Equality Laws, Employment Laws, Publicly Owned institutions like Health, Welfare, Policing, Prisons, the Emergency Services, by opening up ‘competition’ to Trump’s US carpetbaggers, with t

    The end game of Old England morphing into the 51st State, and Scotland as a backwater.

    There is no doubt that they will reverse devolution: Mundell and Lord Smith are already setting out the building blocks for the North British Office.

    On Reporting Scotland tonight, Sally and Glenn featured Corbyn on asecret unannounced hour’s sortie North to a wee hall in Livingston full of our Faithful Fifth Columnist Fourth Estate.

    At Teatime Corbyn got to promise £3 billion ‘extra’ to Scotland to spend on Health, Mental Health, and Social Care.

    It was a fucking blatant New Red Tory freebie courtesy of Glenn Sally and their boss Donalda.

    For balance they cut to Jeanne Freeman, the new Health Boss but because of ‘technical difficulties’ her contribution was cut short and garbled.

    Our MSM will be our biggest hurdle.

    They are either married to, living with, or related to, these Brit Nat chancers Up Here.

    Our biggest trick is to blow our horn louder and more resonant than Glenn, and Gordon, and Tom,and Sevvie, during the next campaign.

    Pathetic little Stockade on Pacific Quay.

  4. We went to the Murray Foote event at Langside last night. Good points – excellent format, kept to time and Stewart McDonald was a charming host. He also made sure questions were kept brief and to the point by banning the words “This is more of a comment really…..”

    Not so good points…the diversion on Langside Road which confused us terribly (Turn left…..please turn left……..LEFT…LEFT…L.E.F.T.!!!! shouted the SatNav, my husband and several pedestrians simultaneously )

    Also the heat in the venue was akin to a Sauna where even the men were fanning themselves daintily and saying “It’s getting Hot in Herre” but unfortunately, being a Church Hall, we were duty bound to Keep On All Our Clothes

    And of course the big question of the night – The Vow ! Yasss, at last, a chance to find out the burning questions of the last four years, who actually wrote the Vow, did Murray make it up himself, was there ever any intention of the Gang Of Three keeping it, did it sway the No vote, would Yes have won without it………..are you ready ? Take a deep breathe and……

    …..let it out at your own pace. Because really it was all very like the Vow itself – flimsy, unbelievable and lacking in substance.

    Yes, they were rattled in the Unionist ranks by the poll showing us ahead. So rattled they sent in a deadbeat Labour dinosaur months from retirement to rally the troops (the Broon-o-Naut). Wow, killer punch guys. But our brave warrior at the Record (who had been reporting the whole IndyRef in a fair and balanced way upto now apparently) decided to hold these untrustworthy Unionists to their promises and – The Vow was born

    Some hasty copy, three electronic signatures and our fate was sealed. Except it wasn’t, because it had no effect on voting anyway. Apparently Yes was always going to lose because of the economy stupid.

    When asked about broken promises, Murray was adamant – there were none. The Vow promised to keep the NHS in Scotland funded separately by keeping the Barnet formula he said. So as the NHS is still funded by the Barnet formula, and the Scottish Government still decides how much the NHS is allocated, the Vow was kept. End of. And heaven help the female activist who dared to question him on this because head, hands and play with would be my description of his response.

    When asked whether the result would have been different if the Record had supported Independence in 2014, he said firstly not, but also (and here is some truth) that any paper’s owners dictate the direction of it’s copy. So rather than the truth – which is that Brown was a washed up failure of a PM, now a back-bencher from Fife due to retire in the next few months and with no power to promise anything, they went with the Vow which promised everything, nothing and all points in between.

    So the Vow said the Scottish Parliament would be permanent – but using Mr Foote’s reckoning, that has been kept because, well, it’s still here. They are stripping it’s powers by ignoring us and forcing through legislation but hey, we’ve still got a Parliament haven’t we ? Ahhhh right, I see how the Vow works now Murray. Gotcha.

    All in all, interesting evening but unconvincing. Someone asked him what if would take for him to become an activist. He said no-one had asked him yet.

    We should wait before we get back to him on that – all I took away from last night was, oh good, another vote for Yes. Every one counts.

    • hettyforindy says:

      I just don’t trust anyone, if you look at the history of the so called ‘union’ we should definitely be extremely cautious about nay sayers turning to yea sayers. should Foote be taken too seriously quite yet? We mustn’t be too quick to trust, and it sounds like he was giving his own opinion on the ‘vow’, and actually saying that the er, promises were kept in any way, shape or form? If he was saying that, he is talking sh**e.

      Take him with a pinch of salt, we might be too quick and too trusting, and the colonial mindset does not play fair, it goes to great lengths to get what it wants, and has all levers of money and power to get that as well.

      Buyer beware!

      Ps happy to accept thoses who voted no in 2014 who have since changed their minds, but ,maybe those of ultra influence? ie, media, politics, I am ever so slightly unconfortable with some of that.

      • Weechid says:

        I don’t just mistrust them – I’m afraid I can never forgive any of them for the lost years of independence we would have had. I’m a Scot with a grudge – and it’s not going away anytime soon.

    • Murray Foote seems to be straddling two chariots. We have no time for time wasters.
      You lied,Mr Foote, get over it.

    • I welcome any new convert to supporting independence and I suppose it’s human nature for Murray Foote to try and distance himself and downplay the importance of the Vow, I mean who wants that to be their legacy. I see in reply to Alex Salmond’s piece in the National today that Foote is now claiming that in years to come the Vow will be seen as “a step towards independence.” Thing is Murray that step could have been taken in 2014 without the Vow!

  5. PS Have great week off, Paul.
    Stirring stuff a s usual.
    You can tell how disgusted I am: I’m using the comparative of adjectives instead of adverbs.
    Our ‘horn’ will be blown more loudly and more resonantly.
    I am champing at the bit.

  6. mogabee says:

    Sounds like you have been railroaded into something awful and my mind has gone wild (the heat)!

    At the moment a week seems like it’ll pass in the blink of an eye! Just lots of jousting and parrying by UK gov and EU negotiators.

    We are, at last, starting our YES campaign as the chances to put up stalls in public are now upon us, and that’s when I’ll be able to test the water locally, difficult to be honest normally.

    Looking forward to it enormously and in particular meeting all our new members!!

    Good luck for next week….

    .it fascinates me how finance can be found by the UK government for foul projects…..the latest is the plan to build a citadel to house a recruitment of 3000 ‘administrators’ for the UK government in Scotland. All this to be achieved by 2020.

    Meantime the rape clause remains active with nearly two hundred women having to discuss their experience of rape in order to get the meagre sum on grudging offer to support their beloved child.

    Politicians and their supporters have hit rock bottom.

    “Arrogance is taking what a nation offers for granted, wisdom lies in taking what a nation offers with gratitude.”
    That one’s a keeper! Thanks 🙂

  11. brianmlucey says:

    All very stirring,and true. But no sign yet of a major shift in opinion polling?

    • Good try, Brian from the emerald isle.
      Nobody polls during the summer hols. Watch the polls in October when No Deal Brexshit hits the fans.
      My last word on this.
      I think I’ll open a Guinness Duty Free Warehouse in Dundalk for all the smugglers.

  13. Anne Martin says:

    Since May is obviously never going to grant another Section 30, nor recognise the result of a referendum without it, is it possible for Nicola to call a snap Scottish election?

    • Les Bremner says:

      This is a divorce. This is a divorce from an abusive partner. Permission to leave an abusive partner will not only be refused, but will result in even more abuse. I said before the first referendum that there will be punishment for daring to think about leaving, and I was right.

      I don’t care about Section 30, and I certainly don’t care if the English Parliament recognises anything.

  14. Wonderful, stirring stuff as always, Paul. Good luck with the jury service … I hope it is something relatively simple and not too harrowing.

  15. Marvelous post, banging nails into coffins with every sentence.

    No wonder you are never invited onto any TV or radio shows. We’d be indy in 6 months if you were ever a regular feature on any UK main frame channel.

  16. Malcolm says:

    Just been listening to Indicar and I feel the Scottish government needs to confront the Scotsman newspaper re this article about Mundell and his cronies taking over the civil service in Scotland. Is the Scotsman trying to incite trouble in Scotland. This needs to be nipped in the bud

  17. For any who harbour the notion that the Daily Ranger, soon to be rebranded the Daily Gerrard, is leaning towards Yes, check out the latest NHS crisis/SNP REALLY BAD yarn headlining the online Police Gazetteer edition this morning.
    A man got badly burned in a chip pan fire.

    Local off duty GP’s attended at the scene, the fire Service were called to put out a fire; apparently the washing machine and back door were destroyed by the flames.
    Get this :- the family waited for 2 1/2 hours for an ambulance, before his sister ran him in to A&E in her car.
    The Daily Gerrard’s reporter implies that the man was a death’s door, severely burnt, and in agony for hours, yet, addfs that he will be back at work in two or three weeks.
    But that doesn’t stop Anas Fuckwit getting full publicity, and a big photie, condemning the SNP for this hapless man’s kitchen tragedy.
    Scottish Labour health spokesman Anas Sarwar said: “This is a shocking report that must be fully investigated as a matter of urgency.

    “Our paramedics do fantastic work but they’re under incredible strain thanks to an SNP
    government that has starved them of resources and support.”

    Our paramedics are up to their armpits in extra work because of the heat wave, you millionaire dentist fuckwit.
    Crawl back under your well heeled suburban not for the many but the few stone, Sarwar, and give us all peace.
    Every bloody week the Red Tories and Willie Rennie’s Yellow Tories come up with ambulance chasing shite like this.
    If I were a paramedic or a nurse or a GP I know whom I would trust. It wouldn’t be any of this bunch of Brit Nat Never Weres contaminating Holyrood.
    Perhaps the National can follow up on this. After all Sarwar demands a full urgent investigation.
    Ot maybe, just maybe, the Daily Gerrard writes with exaggerated forked Red Tory tongue.
    Hands up allthose who live about a mile and a half from a major hospital, and whose nearest or dearest wa suffering badly, would not take them to A&E as a matter of course?
    The usual Labour Branch Office trash.
    Sarwar, fuck off.

    • Andy Anderson says:

      Just sat it the way it is Jack. I agree.

      • Just caught up with Brewer’s traditional English Sunday Lunch for his 61 year old fans.
        At last; the SNP are catching on. John Swinney refused to appear (it would be pre-recorded, edited by PQ Stockade, then torn to bits ‘live’ by Brewer and two of the biggest Never Weres at Holyrood, Johann Lamont (I was a teacher in the ‘eighties) and Liz Smith, who was suitably shocked and horrified but not in equal measures.
        The SNP have at last cottoned on to the ploy.
        Record the Bad SNP Person, then tear them to ribbons in the studio, with no right to reply.
        well done, John Swinney.
        That Shop Steward New Labour Tony Bliar Placement ‘Bud’ Flannigan got his tuppence worth in, SNP BAD regardless…and Brewer droned on for the thick end of 25 minutes about, well, the SNP being Really Very Bad and hinting that ‘Nicola Sturgeon’ should maybe resign because 260,000 of our kids, starving because of Willie Rennie and Ruth Davidson giving their dinner money to Lord Darling and JK Rowling in the form of a 5% tax break, refuse to ‘attain’ just because their fucking bellies are empty.

        And so the BBC Brit Nat Roadshow continued remorselessly, boringly, with Brewer ‘confused’ yet again, as to the ‘SNP Government’, not the ‘Scottish Government position on backing the Lib Dems calls for a second EU Referendum
        This man is their main anchorman at the Pacific Quay Brit Nat Stockade, yet he has not heard of the Scottish Government’s two Positional Papers, ‘Scotland in Europe’, or the Growth Commission Report on Scotland’s future economy, or perhaps he was out buying the sticky buns for the teabreak when ‘the SNP’ walked out of WM two weeks ago, or he has not quite grasped anything Mike Russell said to him in several ‘Yes But’ drown out the answers interviews he has conducted with our excellent Scottish Brexit Minister over the past 18 months.
        When will Brewer understand? Never.
        Christine Jardine and the New Young Bright Hope of Dying Scottish Labour, Paul Sweeney were in the studio, live, and Stephen Gethin by satellite link ,or possibly two tin cans connected by a taut length of butcher’s string, whom Brewer ‘Yes Butted’ and talked over while allowing the Brit Nats in the studio to SNP Bad on cue.

        Gethin should refuse to appear ever again on this farce of a show.

        Indeed boycott the Yoon media entirely.
        Let them talk among themselves.
        Jardine and Sweeney are clearly not up to it.
        But none of the Yoons are nowadays.
        Let them talk among themselves.

        • The reason given for the Blue Tories not present to discuss the Eurmageddon that is Brexit by Brewer was that well’ we know Ruth Davidson’s view on a second EU Referendum and as an ex BBC Colleague and Pregnant Mum-to-be (pause for a we cuddly Aw the nice..) their input to this SNP BAD Fest is not needed.’
          The Blue Tories are leading England and Wales off the cliff, yet, Brewer doesn’t feel it necessary to quiz ex BBC Employee Ruth Davidson on a second vote once the terms are known?
          Aye, that’ll be shining bright.
          I’d urge all Yes Movement Pro Independence representatives to boycott the BBC completely, and the MSM in general.
          Let them talk to themselves as they gather in a circle of madness weaving baskets.

    Just got back to it last night and I’m playing catch up on the past week or so of posts around the indyweb. Seems the British Nationalists have got a bee in their bunnet. Couldn’t possibly have anything to do with the impending Brexit explosion and the inevitable public backlash (and it is inevitable).Kinda what happens when the lies are exposed, the strategies and manipulations made transparent and you’re caught red handed trashing your agreements and settlements to suit your own ends. That’s your given word at the end of the day. That thing which can take a lifetime to make good and a heartbeat to throw under a bus.

    Saw a movie whilst on break. The Ox bow incident. There’s a great monologue by Henry Fonda’s character at the end of the movie. Maybe worth a thought or two.

    “My dear Wife, Mr. Davies will tell you what’s happening here tonight. He’s a good man and has done everything he can for me. I suppose there are some other good men here, too, only they don’t seem to realize what they’re doing. They’re the ones I feel sorry for. ‘Cause it’ll be over for me in a little while, but they’ll have to go on remembering for the rest of their lives. A man just naturally can’t take the law into his own hands and hang people without hurtin’ everybody in the world, ’cause then he’s just not breaking one law but all laws. Law is a lot more than words you put in a book, or judges or lawyers or sheriffs you hire to carry it out. It’s everything people ever have found out about justice and what’s right and wrong. It’s the very conscience of humanity. There can’t be any such thing as civilization unless people have a conscience, because if people touch God anywhere, where is it except through their conscience? And what is anybody’s conscience except a little piece of the conscience of all men that ever lived? I guess that’s all I’ve got to say except kiss the babies for me and God bless you. Your husband, Donald.” (my bold)

    Take from that what you can…

    • Happy now, Sam.
      I watched it on Youtube.
      Chilling.
      The mob rule and lust for blood.
      Couldn’t happen today, could it, outside George Square on the 19th of September 2014 that is.

      • Macart says:

        So certain in their right to be right Jack, yet acting against their fellow man without conscience or empathy. They demonise, condemn and punish those they deem lesser or different to themselves. They do so without remorse or anything like a second thought. That’s yer Westminster policy gonk and their definition of Britishness all over. They don’t seek to govern a population. They seek to exclude demographics and ideas they don’t consider to be the ‘right sort’. That’s not how populations are or work, but that won’t stop the bastards from trying their damnedest to create their ideal.

        Without conscience or empathy there is no right and those who seek to govern without those traits have no right to govern at all.

      • Andy Anderson says:

        Have a read of Mike Herd’s book titled ‘No Tears for Destiny’ written in 2015. It is about our struggle but is fiction. A few good predictions. In it Westmonster gets nasty after we say Yes.

  19. Big Jock says:

    The polls are not important. It’s the campaign that’s important. You can’t wait until the polls are perfect , it might never happen.

    Scotland is already being slowly dismantled. This is not the perfect time to have a referendum. It is in fact the extremely essential time to have it.

    Mundell has already placed his troops under the Scottish government. Those civil servants are waiting for WM to shut down Holyrood. Scotland will be run pre 1999 style from London with a Scottish office.

    It’s not the shape of Brexit that’s important. It’s the status of Holyrood. We need to dissolve this union before they dissolve us.
