The UK

A Nation of Equals?

The Scots, Welsh and N Irish Nationalists constantly complain that the UK isn’t a Nation of Equals

That’s actually very hard to be when England makes up c85% of the population of the UK

Let me show you how unequal the UK really is
2/

- Income -

The disparity in income across the UK is quite large. Here’s a dataset which shows the income for the 4 home nations from 1999 to 2019

Although Scotland’s income per head is higher than England’s since 1999 that’s only because of past oil revenues
3/

You can see that Scotland’s income has fallen behind England’s in the last 5 years. Wales and NI are an economic disaster. England is now keeping the entire UK going with its higher income levels and we should be grateful for that

Let me explain why I believe the SNP have taken the Indy poll to around 50%

IMHO this is multi faceted

There has been a nationalist movement in Scotland for years. It gained traction in the 80’s due to two events. Oil and Thatcher

The oil revenues in the 80’s pointed
2/

towards a possible different future for Scotland. The money generated was enormous but the money went south

This created a sense of anger that somehow we had been cheated

The other was Thatcher. The deindustrialisation of Scotland began in the early 80’s. The blame, and
3/

some of that blame was correctly attributed, was all put on the Thatcher Government

The main beneficiary though wasn’t the Nationalists, it was Labour

Nationalism subsided again until devolution arrived. Labour wanted to cement their stranglehold of Scottish politics.

Just remember this

We all know Nationalists. They’re our friends, partners and family

From personal knowledge, every single one I have ever came across or know base their Nationalism on two precepts

1: That WM is corrupt and we can do things better
2/

2: England/rUK is stealing our money and if we were independent we could keep all that money for ourselves

Firstly, no one comes close to the corruption in the Scottish Gov. They have totally corrupted all the organs of Gov

The civil service has been co-opted into the
3/

Nationalist family. The judiciary has been corrupted to the level that it need to be de natified

The Schools have been corrupted to the degree that they push Nationalist propaganda

The media has been cowed to the degree that they rarely criticise the Scot Gov

Corruption in Scotland

Scotland is corrupt. There’s no two ways about it. The SNP have blurred the lines between the Party, the State and the Judiciary and the Media

All four are supposed to be separate but in Scotland they’ve almost merged into one thing
2/

All at the behest of the most corrupt politician in Europe

Nicola Sturgeon

She has blatantly lied to Holyrood about when she first heard of the allegations against Alex Salmond. She said it was the beginning of April 2018 when she first heard. Geoff Aberdein, under oath
3/

at Alex Salmond’s trial said that he met with Sturgeon 4 days or so earlier to discuss the allegations. Read the piece by Craig Murray. There are witnesses that contradict Sturgeons view

That she lied in Holyrood isn’t in doubt. That the crown office is covering up for her

How Scotland spends England’s money and lies about it!

Ask any leftie journalist in London

Who runs their economies better. Scotland or England?

I’ll bet that the vast majority of them say Scotland does

Why?

Because they’ll point to free Uni tuition, baby boxes etc etc
2/

Unfortunately they’ve been had. They’ve been taken in by the best propagandists since the Third Reich and what worse. They’re happy to be taken in by the SNP

As far as they’re concerned. Any anti Tory is good by them!

Unfortunately none of it is true

None of it
3/

How can I prove that none of it is true?

Easy. All one needs to do is read the ONS Country and regional accounts

It details the revenues and expenditures for all four UK Countries 👇

The SNP versus the Law

The SNP is in trouble. They know it and we know it. It’s almost certain that Nicola Sturgeon will need to resign for lying to Holyrood

This explains the frantic calls for another referendum

Brexit is done and the sky didn’t fall in
2/

This removes their number one Bête Noire. A Disastrous hard Brexit

They were banking on that happening. There will be, and are, difficulties with the new trading arrangements but these will play out over years and will be sorted one way or another
3/

The Law

As it stands, the SNP cannot call another referendum without the permission of the UK Parliament

Some people dispute this, including many in the SNP

So. What’s the alternative?

The could call a non binding non legal referendum but what’s the point

The missing Scottish Referendum of 2021

Every day we hear Nationalists and their politicians go on about another referendum in 2021

It’s not happening. It’s never going to be happening and Sturgeon knows it’s not going to be happening

Why not?

Well. That’s easy
2/

For one thing, the SNP simply cannot call a referendum. Sure, they can hold a non binding referendum, but even that would be subject to legal challenge

They simply can’t have a legal referendum because legally, they don’t have the power to call one

That power resides in WM
3/

and only WM. Referendums are reserved and a Section 30 order is needed in order to have one

Boris Johnson is not going to allow one. He’s already said so and stated that the referendum in 2014 must be respected. Not only because it was the biggest turnout in British History

Although this is over 4 years old it should terrify every single person in Scotland

Why?

Nicola Sturgeon has decided, that for her, her teenage dream of destroying the British state is more important than just about anything in her life Image

And many Scots also agree with her

If you look to Africa you will find Poverty, corruption and third world countries. The reason why most of Africa is still poor is because they do not have developed advanced economy

Without a developed advanced economy you simply cannot

A Forensic walk through who receives Fiscal Grants in the UK and who pays for them......

In every country in the world every citizen either receives from the state or contributes to the state
2/

This also applies to regions within countries. In Germany, for instance, most people and regions will receive fiscal grants, and these will be paid for by the richest parts of Germany

The same happens in the UK. Only three regions of the UK run fiscal surpluses (they create more wealth than they spend). They are

The South East

Lying in the Workplace

Everyone who works has told lies in the workplace. You might have covered up for a colleague or lied about why you were late

Everyone does it, but these lies have little consequence

However, lying about the big things does

If you lied to your boss

Lying to your board of directors about the financial state of your company could get you sacked and possibly investigated by the police

Lying about your pupils in your school could get you sacked

In virtually every walk of like you can get sacked for lying in the workplace, with one exception

Indy Scotland. This is how it goes

Scotland becomes independent in a referendum. 62% to 38%

Even before the referendum property prices have fallen and the financial industry has started to relocate to England. Wealthier Scots with liquid assets have moved them to England

The emotion pull of Independence has proved too much for the unionists. The young vote for it in their droves. Nicola Sturgeon has said that Scotland will be a model for other societies. Welcoming, inclusive and outward looking

But clouds are on the horizon

The Tories

This video is pretty shocking. Here we have Sturgeon lying through her teeth to @afneil and unfortunately he missed it

Sturgeon tell Andrew Neil that Scotland has sent some £300bn to the treasury in oil revenues. That’s simply not true
2/

She’s not only deliberately lying but she’s also putting out a number without telling anyone what it means

For a start, Scotland’s oil revenues since 1980 were £162bn so where does the £300bn come from?

She’s using the real value of oil (after inflation) instead of the
3/

cash value of oil, but where does she get this data from?

Turns out that she got it from GERS and Historic GERS. The accounts that the Nationalists say isn’t accurate which makes it odd that she would quote it

It also turns out that she got her number wrong. As of 2018/19

How have the SNP managed to stay so high in the polls despite so many things going backwards in Scotland?

Easy. They’ve invoked the Scottish equivalent of the Palestinian protocols

For those not au fait with the Middle East this is how it works

Palestinians see the

Israelis as their enemy. An enemy to be hated, vilified, despised and attacked at every opportunity

In Scotland the SNP are the Palestinians and the Tories are the Israelis

To hate Tories in Scotland under the SNP isn’t only totally normal but it is also to be encouraged

This hatred of Israelis is so inculcated into their psyche that Palestinians see absolutely nothing wrong in murdering Israelis. It doesn’t matter what age or sex. Even children are to be murdered and when these murders happen the Palestinian authorities actually pay the

The abject failure of the Unionist cause in Scotland

Most, if not all of you, will now be aware of the latest opinion polls showing support at independence at around the 50% mark or just above that

The primary reason for this is Brexit. Since most people in Scotland
2/

want to stay in the EU then this makes more of them look at the possibility of independence, which is understandable to some degree

Despite the polls moving more towards independence it is actually further away than it was last week

Why?

The Law. The EU would not even

countenance any form of recognition for any type of referendum that was not legally watertight and recognised by WM

That has come as a shock to the SNP and their followers as they thought that the EU would disregard everything they believe in for the sake of Scotland
