Highlanders and Lowlanders gave their lives for the Union

Don't betray them on Thursday.

And those who died for British India, or British Kenya, or British Southern Ireland, or British America, or British France?

As a former serviceman I was a bit concerned at seeing General Sir Richard Dannatt lob this one into the referenduum melting pot.
As far as I am concerned they died fighting for freedom for the ordinary man or woman to be able to choose how they live their lives.
Not dictated by an over the sea's federalism supported by our very own Quisling political class.

If there is a "Quisling" political class, it is surely to be found in the SNP?
I suggest you look up their history - not pretty at all.
As here:

'Don't betray their Sacrifice' emotional blackmail.

This isn't:

The English are now a minority in their own capital city; their second largest city; two other cities in their midlands; seven of their major towns and, thirteen of their smaller towns.

Englishmen, from Geordie to Janner, have been giving their lives for England before any Union existed.

Their sacrifice betrayed.

Foolish nonsense.

Many Canadians, Australians, New Zealanders, South Africans, Indians and too many other countries of the old empire to list here also fought and died for a democratic ideal. Most of those countries now exist as independent countries with minor ties to UK through the commonwealth. Scotland could be exactly the same.

The fact that many have been betrayed by England while it flirts with the EU and welched on war repayments may explain some of the unwillingness of jockland to be associated with yUK.

Ayy, it's total bollox. They gave their lives so sometime, on a long distant September dawn their kids, grandkids, great grandkids could exercise their right to vote on matters which they see fit.

They may have died for a United Kingdom, but they certainly didn't die for one which has had its governance outsourced to a foreign organisation dominated by Germany.

And a century later highlanders and lowlanders want to leave.

Once I would have said goodbye and good luck. Now I say fuck off and you will deserve everything you get, which I suspect will be a deepening of the divisions and hatred within Scotland.

But of course, Salmonds magic money tree will bring peace, contentment and dogs will no longer shit in the street.

G. Tingey said...

The regiments will almost certainly move en masse South to England.
They have no love for Salmond's narrow vision

G Tingey

And could you imagine the hate and spite that would be directed against these "traitors" by the yes camp?

As far as I'm concerned they would be welcome as would anybody else from Scotland with a bit of get up and go.

Salmond wants separation from England, yet would sell his own mother (& everyone else) to be assimilated into the Borg (EU).

This is about the destruction of the UK, turning it into (EU)regions. Anyone who says otherwise is deluded/lying.
