Something millions of people fight and die for across the globe, and my Fatherland rejects it with a vote.

I’m ashamed.

Well, looks like it’s back to aiming for Japan again. Maybe considering returning to a dreich hovel was too optimistic.

Scotland goes to the polls today to decide it’s future in what is the most important vote in its history. As you can see I’m in the Yes camp as I believe it’s the only way to a fairer and more just society. This vote counts, and it’ll help to ensure the next generations’ vote counts too

What might change if Scotland goes solo? The Union Jack, for one thing.
If Scots vote to bid cheerio to the United Kingdom, the country would be independent as of March 2016. Here are some of the biggest changes that would occur.

False. Union of crowns still stands.

oh-glasgow:

I was asked today what I made of Gordon Brown’s speech at the Better Together rally.

This is a man who once wanted to get rid of nuclear weapons when the Labour party were in opposition in the eighties (no really!). When he became chancellor, he sold off a vast number of the UK’s gold reserves. When the financial crisis came round, do you remember how he was jeered and derided from the opposition benches? I know the Daily Mail rarely say anything nice about anyone (unless they’re “all grown up”. If you don’t know what that means, I suggest you look into how the Mail is a rather creepy publication using that phrase.), but do you ever know of a time where they had a positive word to say about Gordon? Hell, even Jeremy Clarkson called him a “one-eyed Scottish idiot”. What else did Gordon Brown do during his brief tenure at Number 10? Ah yes, brought Margaret Thatcher to Downing Street, shake her hand at the steps, as he tried to appeal to the crowd of Middle England.

Margaret Thatcher, who spoke about “Building Scotland’s Future” as she came to power.

Within her first two years, Scotland lost 20% of its workforce. TWENTY PER CENT.

She privatised whatever she could, our industry was sold off, our public services were slashed and she introduced a tax that became known as the Poll Tax. Which, she tested out on Scotland first.

To see Gordon Brown stand at Downing Street shaking her hand confirmed that he had sold out. New Labour had sold out in the late nineties under Tony Blair. Now look at Gordon Brown… siding with the Tories in order to keep David Cameron in a job. You honestly could not make this stuff up!

I will never vote Labour again. I wrote to Jim Murphy when he was on his Better Together walkabout and told him that the Labour party were now finished in Scotland. He didn’t reply, of course. There will be a general election next year, and if the Labour party are going to come out and ask us to vote for them, they’ve got another thing coming. Look at Gordon Brown, Alistair Darling and Jim Murphy… all coming out to the defence of the Tory cuts and ideology. It’s disgusting. Miliband and Clegg will offer nothing and the latter will have their party smashed at the ballot box next year. Sadly, the English left will not have enough time to galvanise support for anything else, in the same way that the Yes campaign here have been doing so for two years. So…. what next for the UK? A coalition government between the Tories and UKIP? Great. Fucking great. One party that wants to remove the Human Rights Act and the other that wants to blame all the country’s problems on immigrants… and both want us to leave our largest trading partner, the EU.

Good. Grief.

Tomorrow the Mail, Express, Daily Record will all laud Gordon Brown for his speech and put him on a pedestal for it. “The man who saved Britain!” They’ll probably scream. A far cry from the headlines of hate they gave him when he was in the top job.

But no, fuck you Gordon. I’m voting yes because I want change. I want a choice. I want my vote to count in this country. I don’t want the Labour party to become complacent and take my vote for granted, because that’s what they did. In the end when I voted Green in the last two elections, it didn’t make a damn bit of difference because this is such a Labour stronghold. But now, you will have destroyed the Labour party. For a second time! Quite an achievement for any politician. I suggest your party reforms and instead of courting for the votes of middle England, like your little stunt with Thatcher all those years ago, and with Miliband saying that he would go after the UKIP votes…. why not go and speak to those people that are so disenfranchised with the entire electoral system? The ones that don’t vote? Because in this referendum, a PHENOMENAL amount of people have registered to vote. Because, unlike the parties of Westminster, we actually want CHANGE. We’re tired of this status quo and pseudo-plutocracy. And that’s why you’re scared. You’re scared that we’ll actually get what we want this time. Because you can’t be bothered to change. It suits you for certain demographics to be apathetic and uneducated about the situation. But this time round, we’re not. We’re a MOVEMENT of people here. And we’re going to vote for a better future for ourselves, our children, our families. We’re voting to take decisions on our own. We’re voting to take control of our own destiny. We’re voting, to no longer be a region of the UK, but to be a country.

We’re going to vote YES!
