Ungrateful Scotland and Wales have, in a development that he says he could never have foreseen, turned him into an English nationalist. Although it’s a development that absolutely everone else could have seen coming from the distance between Douglas Ross and his last self-inflicted instance of oral pedalism, which I am informed by my physiotherapist is the distressing medical condition of sticking your foot in your mouth, Although to be fair to Toby this is not a very great distance at all, as Douglas sticks his foot in his mouth about as often as a social media yoonboot shares a prettily coloured graph which purports to demonstrate that Scotland is poorer than Bangladesh until recently pysicists believed that thes shortest measurable distance was the Planck length or the distance travelled by light in one unit of Planck time , a measurement related to the wavelength of a subatomic particle, thanks to Douglas this has now been replaced in the physics text books by an even shorter distance, the two short planks length, which is the distance that Douglas is able to travel between incidents of oral pedalism I am likewise informed by my physiotherapist that no amount of remedial intervention will ever prevent either Douglas or Toby from making pricks out of themselves on a regular basis nor indeed is there any form of therapy that can stop a dickhead from being dickhead , In any event Toby is quite wrong when he characterises Scotland as ungrateful, Scotland is very gratefulindeed every time that Toby ‘the Celt whisperer’ Young decides to pontificate upon matters Scottish or Welsh, because it saves us the bother of having to organise independence campaigns for ourselves. it is particularly useful for us to steer any remaining soft No voters or undecideds in the direction of Toby’s spittle flecke a nglo-entitlement as it will provide them with a sobering illustration of what those Tory britnats are really thinking when they bang on about the preciousss Union and how much they Love Scotland. This is what a Tory thinks about you. Still Better Together Mind you if given the Opportunity the entire UK would probably vote for independence from Toby Young. Toby is what you’d get if you took Piers Morgan and Surgically removed any Compassion, empathy or basic human decency that you could find.
in today’ example of Douglas smashing the two short planks barrier, it was just a few short weeks ago that Douglas took to Twitter to promise that the SCOTTish Tories promised to guarantee a free school dinner to every child in Scotland who needed one the only thing with a shorter life expectancy than a Tory promise to Scotland are those insects whose adult stage is without any mouth parts and whichh as a life expectancy measured in hours. we canonly dream of living in a universe where the Tories lacked mouth parts, because then at least we wouldn’t have to listen to their lies. The second that Douglas’s free school meals promise was put to the test, theScotiish Tories lived up to their usual standards of hypocritical cant. on Tuesday evening the House of Commons voted on a Labour motion to support th footballer Marcus R ashford’s idea to guarantee a free school meal to every child over the coming school breaks.EVERY Single Scottish Tory MP voted against except for Douglas himself., who bravely abstained. So in future when someone says that the Conservatives steal food out of the mouths of babies, That is a not hyperbole, but merely a simple statement of fact.It is an absolute and unforgivable disgrace that in 2020, in this UK that was sold to Scotland on its supposed security, stability, and decency that tens of thousands of children go to bed hungry and their working parents are forced to rely on foobanks in order to put th most basic of meals on the table. There was nothing inevitable about that, rather it is the direct and deliberate outcome of policy decisions made by a Conservative party which Scotland has consistently rejected at the ballot box. The problem for Scotland is that as long as we remain a part of this benighted kingdom, The Conservatives can ontinue to lie to us with impunity, because they don’t need our votes, they have no incentive to listen to us and no incentive to change their ways.So children will continue to go to bed hungry and Douglas Ross will continue to make glib promises that he will never keep, because currently the only sanction he faces is being shamed on social media, which has no chance of success because you cannot shame the shameless. just like his oral pedalism there is no therapy for that either. All we can do is to strive for an independent Scotland where all political parties can be held to account by the electorate of Scotland. The real reason that the Tories are so terrified of independence is because it means that they will face consequences for their lies, their deceit, and their decision to prioritise the interests ofwealth and greed over the right of a child not to go to bed hungry.
THat is why Toby Young is anggr with us, it’s because we are determined to ensure that this Conservative government keeps its word, that it remembers that Scotland is not its plaything, toy or possession, But for English nationalists like Toby and the Johnson government, Scotland can never be a partner in a union, but only a posession that must do as it is told and which must never assert its right to a voice and which can never dare imagine that it can hold th government of England to account.The UK cannot be reformed because that entails the Conservatives agreeing to a mechanism which will enable Scotland to hold them to account. There is as much chance of that happening as there is of Toby Young learning to understand empathy, compassion and human decency. This evening we witnessed another consequence of Scotland’s powerlessness within the UK when it came to light that the Westminster Government has decided that the extra funding announced today to help English businesses through the Covid crisis would not be reflected in Barnett consequentials for Scotland. so there will be no help for Scotland The Tories don’t need our votes so they don’t care if Scottish businesses go to the wall, taking jobs and livelihoods with them and condemning even more children to cry themselves to sleep on an empty stomach. the pride of a Conservative politician is not worth the tears of a child. It’s time to leave.
he stroke has left me paralized down one side. It is still too early to say whether I will be left with a permanent disability but it is a very real possibility. What worries me most is that I live in a top floor tenement flat which is now totally unsuitable for my changed circumstances. I am doing this crowdfunder to raise money to put towards buying a wee cottage or a ground floor flat that can be adapted to my needs. I hope to raise £50,000 which is around what I would need after selling my wee Barlanark flat. It is a huge amount of money and I really don’t want to seem greedy or unreasonable. I am more grateful than you can possibly imagine for all the love and support, it has fair lifted my battered spirits.
