“Where is the democracy in removing one parasitic form of rule for this pre-planned …..regurgitated form of London rule?” The SNP call to form a council of state to negotiate independence is critiqued by Andy Duncan of North Angus and Mearns RIC.
As the time period for the vote on independence shortens ,the media in Scotland, that has up until now embraced the “No” campaign, are beginning to acknowledge that an increasing number of “The Ordinary People” of Scotland that have the most to gain by a yes vote, see this vote as a vote for the future.
Public opinion polls are churned out like copies of the “Sun”, but the uncertainty of the “Ordinary People” of Scotland’s opinion are classed as a mystery, and subsequently the “Democratic” Rulers of Scotland have convened a Cabal to retain their power. Former Labour Leader Henry McLeish, states that he would answer the call from the SNP to set up a “council of state” to help negotiate Scotland’s split from the UK.
McLeish states that politicians who back the union would have to put aside their “Partisanship and Tribalism”, to help get a good deal for the new country! http://www.scotsman.com/news/politics/top-stories/scottish-independence-mcleish-backs-snp-appeal-to-rivals-1-3139548 The crux of the matter is that a team of “Grandees” from all parties would be convened to set the new country on its road to Democracy.
The suggestion of the members of this team, council, or post independent government of advisors would be Mr McLeish, Mr Jack O’Connell as well as three former Scottish Secretaries, Lord Forsyth, Danny Alexander and Mr Moore, backed up by an army of lackeys who will try and enforce this “Council of State ” on the people of Scotland. The council would include Lord Lang, Lord Forsyth, Lord Reid, Helen Liddle, Alistair Darling, Douglas Alexander, Des Brown, Jim Murphy, and overseen by Mr Bill Clinton, whose wise advice would be acted upon.
Democracy? Where is the democracy in removing one parasitic form of rule for this pre-planned rule by a new or regurgitated form of London rule. The glib references to poverty and deprivation of the “Ordinary People” of Scotland will be placed on the “council of states” agenda in the other business section , along with the clean beaches and dog shit removal.
As a political movement we should ensure that the “ordinary people” of Scotland are at the forefront of any political decisions, that the struggle of the ordinary people should be at the top of any agenda, and therefore lead to the radical reformation to the basic management of our nation and its people!
To this end, Radical Independence should be prepared to mount a mass assembly on the 19th of September 2014 to ensure that the “Ordinary People” of Scotland are listened to, and to make aware to our new masters, that nothing less than Government By The People For The People is the politic of the day.
