A rant’s a rant for a’ that…

I want to start with an apology for my absence and lack of contributing here but at the tail-end of last October my mum passed away rather unexpectedly.  She suffered a stroke and then five days later died from bleeding on the brain.  As you can imagine, it’s not been easy.  However, here I am, and I have a few things to say.

OBFA or Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications Act to give it it’s full name.  I cannot express how furious I am with the Scottish Greens right now.  If they thought that the Act wasn’t good enough then why didn’t they work to make it better?  Since when was just getting rid of it the answer?  I…really am furious with this Party of shysters and opportunistic chancers.  I once expressed that I didn’t trust them, and they have proven me to be correct to feel that way about them.

If you want Scotland to be independent then may I please make this recommendation to you?  In elections vote SNP/SNP.  The SNP are the only Party that can deliver it for you.  If you are traditionally a: Conservative, Labour or Liberal Democrat voter/supporter but want independence, you’re going to have to vote for the SNP, then, in an independent Scotland, you can vote for your Party again (if you feel the need to).

Brexit is looming and it is a total car-crash of a process from the incompetents at Westminster.  Make no mistake about it, Brexit is all about little-Englanders projecting a greatness that never ever existed and it will bring Scotland down with it.  However, I believe that there are enough decent-minded people out there, and they can be won over to Yes.

Mundell and Ruth Jong-un with their little bunch of less-than-useless MP’s really are offering nothing to or for Scotland.  Recent polling projections see them losing 7 to 8 seats, personally I hope they all go.  Strangely, I believe that it will take an independent Scotland for the Conservatives or Labour in Scotland to find their purpose again.

I never used to believe that indyref2 was winnable, now I do.  I hope you do too.

Rant over!

    You said it all David. Nae mair a rant than a wee stooshie. I agree with the notion of improving policies that could work rather than getting rid. The mair these Tories, Scots or english, wind themselves into tight Brexit knots the better fae Scotland and Indy.

    Rant away.

    Sorry to hear about your mum.

    I’m a natural Green but I’ve never trusted them. They are both incompetent & conniving opportunists.

    Sad to hear about your loss. Been there last year myself and it will get easier. Agree with your post except for the SNP/SNP vote. I’m led to believe the voting system we have actually weakens a second vote for the SNP if the first vote for the SNP is strong. It therefore means that we should still vote for another Independence supporting party different from the SNP. If the Greens are the only other Indy Party we should vote for them – even if we have to hold our noses because a particular policy of theirs has a smell about it.

    I suggest a swift visit to the James Kelly hotspot and Wings over Scotland to disabuse yourself of this voting fallacy. It has to be SNP/SNP until our re-independence.

    David, my condolences.
