I remember back in March 2018 a great many of us encircled Holyrood, well when you could protest outside, before our great leader decided she did not like being booed and promptly put a stop to the people of Scotland being able to protest outside the very parliament we paid for. Such a great day and a great show of strength as protesters link arms and stood two and three deep, such was the turnout. To cries of ‘hands off our parliament’. We were there to protest the power grab we knew was coming. Now it is here and there is nothing we can do.
The UK Market Act, passed last year, is just the first step to clawing back powers that have been devolved for decades. The UK Government do not see individual countries, they see one United Kingdom draped in a huge Union Jack and are desperate to fly the flag from every government building regardless of how the people in the devolved nations feel.
This happened on the SNP’s watch, given mandate after mandate all of which have been ignored, slogan after slogan the ‘Scotland will not be dragged out of the EU against our will’ a particular favourite. All talk nae action as we used to say when great big windbags were threatening a fight. Seemed that was exactly what the SNP leadership were doing, talking big, then running away. Far too comfortable with their lives in London. Years and years and years of living the charmed life south of the border. Champaign socialism, the order of the day.
Now Brexit is here bringing with it the great big headache some in the yes movement predicted. Angry that their warnings fell on deaf ears, of both of party and membership some of whom still believe the SNP will save the day.
No one is coming to save us. It looks like the SNP have sold the country out, not only to Westminster but to the globalists who come with their own agenda. Carrots are being dangled as usual, a referendum for April next year, or whatever titbit they are proposing now. Independence is not something you are given; it is something you fight for. It is good to see AUOB organising marches and rallies, but it might be too little too late. We are in the midst of a global takeover, Build Back Better, the slogan of the day. We have bigger fish to fry, independence, yes, but first we have to free ourselves from those in power who would do us harm. I know there are those living in their pretty little bubble, who think everything in the garden is rosy, nothing could be farther from the truth. Tyranny reigns supreme around the globe but we are too engrossed in independence to see it. Yet independence is exactly what we need but until we accept this is not going to happen under the watch of the SNP we are well and truly stuffed.
