Westminster is lying again

So, the bias of the ‘official’ news stations. They have lied, bullied and officially stated dishonest news last time we had a referendum on independence. It was partly their fault that it didn’t happen as they were completely in the pocket of the Westminster/no-to-progress/no-voter camp. And yet they managed to make people believe their scaremonger news about our situation.

They are doing it again. BBC Radio Scotland just got a numpty to state that the prime minister is ‘speaking for the people of Scotland’ with her clever delaying-the-referendum plan. She is doing us all a favour, apparently, as ‘the people of Scotland don’t want another referendum’. Everyone keeps saying this on the news, as if it was a fact. Meanwhile the people of Scotland voted overwhelmingly for a party which exists mainly to fight for independence. They think we’re all idiots.

I’m upset after listening to the radio. And I got the following email from the government telling me why they are delaying our request for a referendum on independence:

The UK Government is clear that now is not the time for a second independence referendum.

The UK needs to work together, putting all our energies into ensuring we get the right deal for the UK and for Scotland in our negotiations with the EU.

In 2014, the people of Scotland decided in a legal, fair and decisive referendum to remain part of the UK. The Edinburgh Agreement of 2012 committed both the UK and Scottish Governments to respecting the outcome of the Scottish referendum. In 2016 the people of the UK voted to leave the EU. The result of both votes must be respected.

As the Prime Minister has made clear, now is not the time for another damaging and divisive referendum. All our focus should be on our negotiations with the European Union, making sure we get the best deal for the whole of the UK as we leave. And, it would be unfair to the people of Scotland to ask them to make a crucial decision without the necessary information about our future relationship with Europe. Scotland’s two governments should be working together, not pulling apart, at this crucial time.

Leaving the European Union presents us with a unique opportunity. It is this generation’s chance to shape a brighter future for our country. A chance to step back and ask ourselves what kind of country we want to be. We want this United Kingdom to emerge from this period of change stronger, fairer, more united and more outward-looking than ever.

Scotland Office

So this is what they say:

‘Leaving the European Union presents us with a unique opportunity.’ – Yes, the opportunity to go backwards and become a racist third world country.

‘Now is not the time for a second independence referendum’ – Now is the time we might pull this off and get independence as we still remember how much we have been lied to, and Britain is leaving the EU which we are trying to stay part of. And a successful independence referendum is not what Mrs May wants, so ‘not the time’ stands for ‘not what the British government wants to risk’.

‘The UK needs to work together, putting all our energies into ensuring we get the right deal for the UK and for Scotland in our negotiations with the EU.’ – So far they have been putting all their energy into getting the wrong kind of deal, being hard-lined and ignoring half the country who didn’t want this to happen.

‘As the Prime Minister has made clear, now is not the time for another damaging and divisive referendum.’ – Damaging? We are being damaged by being dragged out of a sensible and progressive union, completely against our will.

The prime minister and her cohorts are like bulldozers, destroying everything in their path.

It is a sad era for us. I sincerely hope that our first minister and the people of Scotland will make the right choice and leave this terrible government behind.  Westminster has proven, again and again, to employ destructive politicians who play political games and gamble with the future of this country.

Let’s get out of there!
