    Scotland's vital future.

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 16 Sep 2014, 12:44 pm

    As Thursday will probably be THE most important day that has ever been in Scotland, I thought I might remind the people of Britain and the world, that may be reading this, that the free and democratic referendum that will take place on that day, which, it is hoped will give Scotland it's own autonomy and the ability to look after it's own hopes and needs for the future, is within our grasp.

    People who have been interested in watching the breakaway-nations of many countries of the world who have fought and died for such freedoms over the years will, I hope, recognise how phenomenal this vote really is.

    Countries like America, and more recently, Poland, Ukraine, the Basques, Myanmar, South Korea, the Kurds, and yes, even the Israelis and the Palestinians, along with many more that have struggled and bled for many years to try achieve what we are about to receive just for voting for it, means that if the YES vote succeeds on Thursday we in Scotland will be able to give encouragement to all of these other fights for freedom that these struggles are not in vain.

    Yeah, central governments just about everywhere never want to give up power and that is why the democratic referendum-vote in Scotland is so important.

    If Scotland does get independence this will give all of the other Nationalist and separatist groups around the world more hope that they too might one day get the freedom that they desire.

    Unhappily, democracy in foreign lands means much less than it does in the civilised West.

    So true mate, so true.

    Of course the vote went the wrong way for the large minority of the people of Scotland and now, with the 45/55 percentage being persuaded by either bribes or fear to vote NO, this 45 percent of Scots are now going to be looking for more and better fairness from Westminster.

    That's four tenths of the Scottish population who voted for independence.

    With 1.6 million Scots thinking that way Ed Miliband is going to have to pay attention to their needs, as if he doesn't he will not get back in at the 2015 national election.

    If the Labour lefties and the SNP supporters don't support the Labour party at that election they could very well get beaten by a revitalised Tory party who will co-opt the English votes for the UKIP by forming up another coalition with them and with a new leader called Boris Johnson.

    That is one horrific idea, but it is a possibility. Suspect

    That's an interesting thought Angie.

    Mind you I don't think that Miliband is going to let that situation develop as far as Labour votes are concerned as he very well knows that many of the votes that went from the Labour lefties in Scotland to the SNP in the YES share of the vote may not come back to him in the main election next May.

    He is going to have to engineer the election plans to include the needs of all of the lefties - including me - that voted YES in Scotland, as if he doesn't he may very well find that if The Tories form a coalition with UKIP in that election, Miliband may not secure an all-over working majority.
