Can Scotland be saved from anti-democratic British nationalist fanaticism? That is the real and urgent question. Will the people of Scotland once again be duped by the blatant dishonesty and scaremongering hysteria peddled by Jenny Hjul and the other undead of Better Together/Project Fear? Or will they defy those intent on the destruction of Scotland’s public services; the dismantling of our democratic institutions; and the eradication of our distinctive political culture?
Witness Hjul’s spittle-flecked frenzy as she rails dementedly against the democratically elected Scottish Government and the indisputable mandate awarded it by Scotland’s people and the Scottish Parliament. Feel the sneering contempt. Recoil from the snarling hatred. Be appalled by the mindlessness of British nationalist extremism and its ferocious rejection of popular sovereignty. And, as you look at her litany of bitter nastiness, bear in mind what it is that Hjul responding to. Only the matter-of-fact insistence that the will of Scotland’s people and parliament should be respected.
What has instigated Hjul’s ferociously angry tirade against our First Minister? Only the simple proposition that the people of Scotland should be allowed to decide such fundamental matters as whether they want to bring their government home.
What has provoked Hjul to paroxysms of indignant outrage? Only the idea that the people of Scotland should be able to exercise the right of self-determination that is their inalienable entitlement.
What has prompted the furious, sputum-soaked exasperation of the British nationalist extremists on whose behalf Hjul rants? Only the suggestion that Scotland might be a normal nation.
Will you let Scotland succumb to despair and a hateful, imperious British nationalist ideology? Or will you raise your voice in defence of democracy and the hope of a better Scotland?
