MY FACEBOOK STATUS FIVE YEARS AGO TODAY.
The day before the vote...
‘A message to every No voter.
I am extremely confident that tomorrow we will get a Yes vote, but if Scotland votes No, then know this....
The next time Westminster delivers legislation that attacks the...

...poor and dismantles the welfare state. I will blame YOU.
When they introduce policy that ensures the poor pay for the mistakes of the greedy and the rich. I will blame YOU.
When we have to start paying to visit our GPs, and adults and children in poverty suffer...

...needlessly because their parents can't AFFORD to visit their Doctor or pay for prescriptions. I will blame YOU.
When they cut our budget for health, and we will have no choice but to privatise our NHS. I will blame YOU.
Every act of social and economic vandalism...

...I will blame YOU.
When our working class youth are no longer able to go to university because they can't afford it. I will blame YOU.
When our need for food banks continues to grow, because 60% of austerity measures is still to come our way! I will blame YOU...

When zero hour contracts become the norm. I will blame YOU.
When people who are working full time still can't afford to put food on their tables AND pay the bills, because they don't receive a living wage. I will blame YOU.
When 2000 more pensioners die in the winter...

...because they can't afford to heat their homes. I will blame YOU.
Whatever austerity measures are coming down the line BEFORE September 18th, weren't your fault. After September the 18th, they WILL be your fault. Every single one of them will be your fault.

If, as a...

...Yes voter, I have to take moral responsibility for whatever happens in Scotland, good or bad, in the event of a Yes vote, then a No voter must equally accept moral responsibility for having given Westminster PERMANENT permission to do whatever it likes. FOREVER. No...
7/ 8
...questions asked.

P.S.
I will NOT apologise if this status sounds harsh. If I offend you, I don't care. I'm fighting for my future, and for my kids future. And the best way to ensure that future is bright, and prosperous, is a Yes vote.

That is all.’

Ooooooft!! Reading this now I see how much I’ve softened to No voters since the 19th September, mainly because so many of them have switched from No to Yes.
But reading this back, I can see that the U.K. is in a much MUCH worse place than even I could have predicted.
Time to go!
Independence is NORMAL.
I WELCOME all former No voters now.
Happy to welcome them to the Yes family.
BIG tweet, but had to be said! 😉🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
