There is something desperate about the First Minister’s invitation to the Prime Minister. Instead of summoning Johnson to Bute House to discuss the several mandates given to her by the people in regard to holding a referendum on Scottish Independence, Sturgeon almost begs him to stop by. I would love to be a fly on the wall of Bute House and listen into their conversation. What will be on the agenda. Not independence, that’s for sure.
The covid recovery seems to be the new buzz word, independence after we have recovered from the pandemic and the economic crisis that came with it. Just another excuse for not using the mandates given to the First Minister from the people. There are those of us in the yes movement who have had it with excuses. Will independence be held in the next five years many have asked me. I don’t see independence being held in my lifetime unless the people of Scotland unite against the party who have betrayed their trust. Who seem to have used money set aside for an independence referendum and who act like they are entitled to do what they damn well please after they have secured the vote?
We have MPs in Westminster who assured the people that we would not be taken out of the European Union against our will and who stated that Scotland deserved better, yet here we are out of the EU. I do agree with the Scotland deserves better stance. Yes, we do, we deserve better than what the SNP offer.
We used to live in a country whose justice system was revered around the world, now it is responsible for sending a man to jail for reporting on a defence case, who was singled out for jigsaw identification, only no one who read were able to identify anyone.
We have children being failed by the education system who did not get the grades they deserve and the sex education being taught is questionable to say the least.
We have a minority holding the majority to ransom, where freedom of speech is for the few not the many.
This is not the Scotland I know and love, whatever discussions the first minister has with Johnson we can guess will not benefit the people. It will benefit the elite and big business. Whatever the economic recovery will look like is anyone’s guess, what we can be assured, the piper paid, now it’s time to pay back – big time.
