If recent events are an indication of how the U.K./rUK will conduct negotiations and go about diplomatic envoys then the mighty, the once mightily mighty have fallen. They have gone from being a great power, to in my estimation, a second level possibly upper third level ranking.
The Donald now runs the show for post Brexit negotiations and so scared of a no deal or a bad deal (a relative term) are the establishment that they will do all that is possible within their remaining influence to placate their last hope of keeping control here on the archipelago.
From our vantage point here in Scotland it is quite refreshing to see the bluffers of Eton being systematically cut to size both by the EU and the US because it should give us renewed hope in the soon to be announced Independence campaign. They really have now less to bargain with than they did last week such is the speed of the collapse in confidence and trust within the upper echelons of this archaic system.
For us of a certain age we will remember that right up until the point of collapse the USSR seemed impregnable and this is what we are witnessing with the runt of empire controlled by the Westmonster they are bluster and no substance. Unfortunately we have more years of thought control to fight through than did the good people of the Soviet Republics, 312 years to be precise but we are getting there with that. As this farce of a U.K. government continues to out do the previous days bloopers to the extent that even the MSM in Scotland can’t ignore it, more and more voters in our country are realising just how much of a con job the union has been.
Those in the establishment are most definitely in full “headless chicken” mode they, because of their upbringing, can not begin to problem solve what is in front of them. Their inbred imperial thought process has no manoeuvrability to begin the simple route to understanding that they have been caught out. Yes that is correct the peoples of the archipelago no longer think that the sun only shines by order of the Etonian (but never sets) and certainly no longer believe that those aforementioned Etonians have the best interests of the plebs at heart.
Not one positive reason has been offered up by any supporter of this “disunion” not one to convince the electorate for continuance in its sham. As it was in the last campaign it has been non stop project fear or to give it its more accurate title “project lie,,, project let’s tell absolutely howling fibs backed up by our cabal press, for the plebs have not the education to see through it”.
Unfortunately for the establishment they have greatly overestimated one area and quite remarkably underestimated in another. They have completely fallen hook line and sinker for the hyperbolic circus that is Ruth Davidson they seem to believe absolutely every puffed up statement that comes from the pretend colonel and her branch office. They have also come late, far to late to the realisation that social media allows the plebs unfettered access to news sites not in the control of the establishment.
We have much to do yet on our road to Independence but that said it is not an unachievable goal. The establishment will continue to fire off at the SNP whilst paying scant attention to the YES movement and that will be the Etonians downfall.
Not long now and we will be celebrating our own Independence Day.
