Britian has been forgotten

Based on what I've been hearing over the last two years there is one subject that has just been missing from the Scottish Residents Only Yes-No referendum, and that's Britain itself.

The Yes side make a Scottish exceptional ism / Brave heart type argument - combined with a spin operation designed to say the 180degr opposite of what anyone pointing out the problems says.

The No side sows fear and argues about how much Scots can get out of the UK and what Scotland might stand to lose.

None argue or consider what this means to the Welsh, Irish and English .

Scots who claim their deep passion for social justice drives their desire for divorce, also by definition are arguing that the sort of people they care about outside Scotland don't count. ( Now I don't by into their government solutions argument - but I'm looking at things int heir own terms ).

The No side argue about how much more can be gained for Scotland by using the rest of the UK to underwrite Scotland's risks.

A marriage argued about in these terms is one that's in deep trouble.

A few weeks ago, for the first time anyone can remember, the Scotland 7 aside team was booed in England. People in the UK outside Scotland have noticed the greed and selfishness of those in Scotland.

Its unlikely to be forgotten quickly.

Gordon Brown offers Scotland extra special democracy with England paying the price

If there's one man who can make most Englishmen vote for Scottish independence its Gordon Brown. Alex Salmond should have insisted on a UK wide poll ;-)

Devo max should required England, Wales & Northern Ireland's consent also

I can understand the argument for independence being a choice solely for the Scottish people, though I disagree with how those people have been defined ignoring over 800,000 Scots living legally and patriotically in what is until 18th Sept their country not getting the vote is an affront to decency and democracy.

However Dev Max impacts us all. No doubt the new Scottish administration will be able to borrow money - and we all know that means they will ( calling wilful wasteful spending on welfare dependency  investment, a trick learnt from Gordon Brown ). England will underwrite the reckless gambles taken by the more socialist than though junta in Edinburgh.

But here we see the weakness in Westminster politics - no one speaks for England.

Wither the Union - through neglect, cowardice and appeasement

It's hard to choose between weeping and crying for the campaign to save the United Kingdom. The negative fear laden appeasement based campaign run by labour certainly deserves to lose based on how it had conducted itself. The positive case for Britain hasn't featured, but perhaps that's because it was conceded in 1997. John Major may well be proven right with his warning that we have 24 he's left to save the Union. Devolution conceded much of the ground, combined with the thinly disguised Anglophobia that the Scottish Lib Dems and Scottish Labour thought they could use to bloke the Conservatives from power for ever. But having unleashed that hateful demon they can no longer control their creation and if has become the unholy creator of the Nationalists. I could lay into the SNP here with their racist Anglophobic implications about Scots being the only ones who care, but I want to bemoan how the argument for the UK has been lost. Labour are primarily and chiefly to blame - with a side swipe at David Cameron for letting the bunch of numpties that are the Labour party in Scotland run anything. ( After all its not as if there isn't plenty of evidence of the mess they make from when they lead their party to destroy the UK economy under the previous government. )

For example Ed Miliband is today engadged in some soprt of Tory hating Dutch auction with the Nats today. What he doesn't get is when he boils the continuation of the United Kingdom to whether the Tories can be kept out he's effectively undermined the case for staying in. ( Yes the people of a future Scotland would have top learn that "The facts of life are essentially Tory" the hard way - which is why they can't understand that from the imature position of current Scottish only politics ).

No one has dared to stand up to the Nationalists and say - you know what there is something good about the Union, and a key part of that is the English. If you really can't get over the Mel Gibson historical fiction then go ahead and leave - because you don't deserve to be in this Union.

Instead we have yet more appeasement of separation from the supposed Unionist side - who are laying the foundations of their own eventual defeat.

Instead we should make a positive pro-Union case - with no bribery, or threats, for voting for it, and a take it or leave it message.

Things are looking up for England but worrying for Scotland

First the good newshttp://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/danielhannan/100284469/douglas-carswell-will-win-big-with-implications-for-both-conservatives-and-ukip/

But from Scotland as the Nat hate campaign gets out of hand even forcing Labour politicians to stop there democratic right to campaign ;n police safety advice things look terrible. ( And the polls make grim reading for Unionists who might soon wake up in an alien country run by the thugs who are driving politicians of the streets ).

The Summer with no silly seaon

I seem to have got out of the habit of blogging this summer.

But then its not the only anomoly this summer:

Instead of a silly season we're having are rather serrious one.

In the Ukraine the twin functionalities of an expansionist and irresponsible European Union is meeting the intransigence of the Putin run Russia. In cold war days there would ahve been no tins of baked beans left int he supermarkets and everyone would have been sending their families to stay with normally ignored relatives away from key cities and military targets for nuclear attack. We all seam much calmer, but perhaps we are fooling ourselves.

In Syria those of us who worried that backing those ranged against the mad and bad Assad regime for fear of the Islamic Jihad Demons who might replace him have been rpoven right - with the shocking invasion of Iraq. The failure to protect the long standing Christian population tells us all we should already have understood about Cameron and Obama. It was only when another religious minority was publicised as being attacked that these failed leaders did anything.

Lets not forget the latest round in the Hamas vs Israel war. Reports have leaked to show how much the western media was intimidated and manipulated by the same evil extremist ideology that murders it was across parts of Syria and Iraq right now.

And to top it all a major volcanic eruptions is likely in Iceland ( one geological report I saw mentioned a Laki - I hope just to suggest a small fissure type eruption - because if its a rerun of Laki then we are all in a lot of trouble ).

Nothing silly happening at all - just the potentially terrifying ....

Red Ed's plan to devalue Parliament and bypass the Opposition

The authoritarian instinct of Red Ed Miliband were on show today - when he laid an elephant trap for UK democracy with his proposal to allow the public to question the PM.

Such theatre would compete with PMQs, and help bypass MPs and especially the official opposition.

After all it was Tony Blair who abolished twice weekly PMQs - Miliband is just working out how to rig the system to his advantage ( maybe a ban on bacon sandwiches will be next ).

Would Cameron resign if defeated in 2015 ?

I ask as one possible expatiation for the Give demotion is to have a tight grip on the troops to survive a defeat.

After all Cameron has left it be understood he won't go if Scotland leaves the union. Why should a general election defeat stop his career ?

Another possible view is that Give and Hague are now available as super subs if the LibDems decide to leave the coalition.

Any other ideas of what's going on ?
