8 weeks to go, doesn’t time fly when you are enjoying yourself?, as ‘Gore Vidal’ the great American author and wit once observed “it’s not enough to succeed, others must fail”. Following the conduct of the snp/separatist/cybernats in the ‘laugharendum’ campaign I begin to see what he meant. Approximately 3 years since the ‘laugharendum’ was announced and the polls then showed a strong lead for the No campaign with the yes campaign trailing badly and that’s exactly what we still have today. The snp have pulled every underhand stunt imaginable from impersonating Labour members and claiming they were voting yes to lying about having legal advice on Europe as well as the whole ragbag of lies, innuendo and smears in between, and they are moving slower than an arthritic horse pulling a coal cart. As soon as this farce started I predicted that not only would the snp lose but that it would be brutal and ugly and that was a good call.
The snp leaders and principally salmond have created a monster over a couple of decades which is now out of their control, this was done on the back of one main thing, hatred of the English, the snp propagandists made sure that every grievance, real or imagined was laid at the door of the hated English. Hatred is a very strong emotion and the more lies and innuendo the snp leaders fed the moronic elements in their party the harder it became to control them, hence the emergence of the odious ‘cybernats’. They have shot every messenger who disagreed with them no matter how polite and eminent they were and the people have been saying ‘surely they can’t all be wrong’?. Do they really want us to believe that there is a powerful world wide conspiracy against the snp?, how is that possible?. International figures like the American President, Nobel laureates, The Pope! Etc. etc. all out to get wee Eck and the snp, it doesn’t stack up does it?.
The frustration continues to build among the snp supporters as the realisation dawns on them that they are going to lose, there is going to be a reckoning among their own members. The genuine ethnic nationalists as I call them have collectively bitten their tongues because salmond managed to convince them that they could win. They put aside their wild ways and pretended to be civilised, the better not to scare the horses, and now they are beginning to see that the “traitors” like salmond, Sturgeon, Swinney and Russell have conned them with their lukewarm fettered version of nationalism, the Queen, Sterling, Shipbuilding, Borders, Passports etc. everyone a dagger to the heart of those who see themselves as ‘bravehearts’ in the mould of Mel Gibson.
I regard this blog as something of a barometer of how the snp supporters are reacting to events, I have always received abuse and indeed threats from the knuckle draggers in the nationalist ranks but I can tell you that the amount of posts which I now have to bin because they are so bad that I couldn’t print them is becoming a flood, a sign of growing anger and disillusionment, they are not happy. Another example is The Glasgow Herald comments site which I regularly write to. I am used to receiving counter posts from the snp and some are sometimes deleted because the site ‘moderators’ judge them to be out of order, the number of deleted posts sent to oppose my comments has been increasing and is now like a torrent. This suggests to me that some snp people are not coping with the direction of the campaign which they now have to admit is moving away from them. Be warned, these people are not the type to engage in reasoned debate, I advise giving them a wide berth and I also hope the authorities are abreast of what is brewing, some sore losers go home to their beds but this lot are not likely to do that, it will be a dangerous time for the victorious No voters.
