Good Morning Britain!
The majority of Scotland has voted no and to stay in the Union… the Union WE created, yes folks, Scotland forged the United Kingdom, we were not invaded or taken over by England in 1707.
Scotland is not ruled or oppressed by an English government. We have our own parliament, we already have our own powers. We vote for the UK government, yeah, we do. Some seem to have forgotten about the Scots who sit in Westminster representing us.
The simple fact is that the important questions that needed answered by both sides, couldn’t be. That’s because they didn’t have the honest answers to give. There was no contingencies, no one knew the right answers to give. So the majority of the registered voters in Scotland have decided the risks of not knowing are not worth taking.
Note that I said the registered voters in Scotland and not the Scottish people? That’s because the voting population of this country are not all from here. Something a lot of people seemed to have forgotten about.
All we can do now is wait and see what happens now. The scaremongers are already predicting doom and gloom. Do you know what you are saying as fact? No, you don’t, so stop speculating and trying to stir up trouble. It’s time for us to stand together, stand proud and make sure promises are delivered. Westminster, the chosen target for most of the YES campaigners, have had a good kick up the arse because of this referendum… but Westminster is not all to blame for the way Scotland is today. Try looking a little closer to home, try looking at local government first, try questioning why the Provost of one such region is on Premiership footballer size wages. Try questioning why our councils invest our money in foreign banks and countries only to lose it all when those countries and banks go bust.
We’ll never forge ahead as a country of our own until we are ALL on the same page and all fighting for the same thing.
Now, those of you that are embarrassed, devastated, heartbroken… who yanked yer troosers doon in a public place? That’s embarrassing. Who died, who got a incurable disease? Those are devastating and heartbreaking things. Losing in a democratic vote, that’s just simply disappointing.
Scotland is better together as a nation when we all agree on the same things. It’s time we started doing that instead of blaming others. Own the problem, don’t look for a target or pass the buck!
And those of you saying you are ashamed to be Scottish… really?
