The Scottish Independence Referendum

Forever

I believe that if a Government appears to mislead its own people, it is time for ordinary men and women to speak up. I am an ordinary man. Not a politician. Nor someone who is important in any way. What follows is my opinion, a personal view…
  1. When someone tells you that to become better your country will need to become smaller and lesser FOREVER
  2. When your Government is so determined to win at any cost that they feed you half-truths (including only that part of the truth that suits their cause)…
  3. When someone says that to pursue their cause you need to break apart your country FOREVER
  4. When your Government is so determined to win at any cost they make you half-promises (without care for how they can be afforded or the risks if they cannot be)…
  5. When someone tells you to turn your back on so many things and people that you love and care for, FOREVER
  6. When your Government is so determined to win at any cost that they misrepresent a manifesto as a White Paper, misusing public funds and compromising the Scottish Civil Service in the process…
  7. When someone says that the people of Scotland are best placed to manage Scotland but really mean that they personally are the people who should run Scotland…
  8. When your Government is so focussed on their nationalist ideology that they will try at every turn to  mislead you as they seek to break up the United Kingdom without care for the people of the United Kingdom
  9. Then there is only one response, which in these circumstances is the most positive of all responses
  10. No! No! NEVER!

Thank you for taking the time to read this.
