Please pray for Scotland
I know technically the decision is “Scotland Rejects Independence”, and this leaves most of the world wondering why we gave up this amazing opportunity to decide our own fate (I am a very strong “yes” voter for this issue)
There was a lot more going on under the surface, some now are accusing the votes of being rigged, although I’m not sure how much of that is true. What is true is that the media were PAID to only tell us the negative aspects of voting for our freedom. These negatives ranged from “You won’t get to keep the pound (lies), you will lose your healthcare (which we also pay for independently), to “We will be sad”, “you would be cursing everyone else” and “But you won’t get to watch Top Gear or Dr Who (outright rediculous, since it’s all on Netflix!) Companies were bribed into saying that they’d leave Scotland if we voted, and other companies actually had to come out and say “I know Westminster claim we said we’d raise your prices, but we never said that - we actually think the tax might go either way.”
A lot of people in Scotland live below the poverty line, we are villainized for not having jobs (when Westminster was responsible for closing the ship-building industries and the mines. We are the ones that they try out their new taxes on, the most recent one being th “bedroom tax” which is literally old people being taxed for having spare rooms (when their kids move out and they don’t want to move to a nursing home).
We actually provide a lot of income for the UK with our oil, our water, tourism, whiskey, tablet and our very image (seriously check out the cost for kilts that people buy either when visiting the country or for special occasions). That is why they want us to stay, they have put THEIR Nuclear weapons in the river next to our largest city (because it was too dangerous to have them in England) and they Tax us past breaking point. Did I mention that we ae paying for having these Nukes (yet we don’t control them) and our people are visiting food banks. Literally a lot of the people ehre are starving and although we do have the “benefit culture” where so many people have to claim welfare, those people are so demonized, and their welfare doesn’t cover their food. Literally a single mother who cannot get a job because the economy collapsed, or because she’d pay more on childcare than she can earn can be expecting to live off of £54.00 a week. To put this into context, my rent is £725 a month, my Sky is £58 a month and my weekly shop is never gonna come in below £20 a week. THIS is why our people are starving, the number of women going without food so that their children can have beans on toast is rediculous. AND then she’s being told that she is clearly lying about being unable to get a job and is a “scrounge” and a “good-for-nothing-layabout”. A couple of years ago they also implemented a rule where if you have been unemployed for moer than 9 months you must do 3 months unpaid internship. (Sorry by unpaid I do mean that you still get your £54.00 a week). Except now you have a bus ticket of £20.00 a week to pay, and that elusive childcare (think roughly £10 an hour for an unqualified student working part time)
NOW we also have the far right groups coming in - and Scotland has not made a dent in the national elections since before world war 2. We have the conservative party, who brought us the bedroom tax and put disabled people on trial to prove that they couldn’t work. My friend has CF and had to go to court several times (£6 per journey on a bus that will take her an hour and a half when she can’t move about very well) because they had cut of her money IN WINTER. This is a 23 year old girl who has been classed as “Dying” since she was 6 having to travel an hour and a half EACH WAY to go to court SEVERAL TIMES to prove that she’s not healthy enough to work. They cut off her money for a over a month, and so she had to WALK 4 MILES to a food bank, which she was so ill she could only do once every 2 weeks - where she got a carrier bag of food that SHE DIDNT HAVE TO COOK, because SHE HAD NO ELECTRICITY. This is in WINTER, now - almost a year later, her lungs have not recovered. She has to hook up to a breathing apparatus every couple of days. (Imagine taxi fairs to hospital). And the worst thing is that the foodbanks are not even provided by the Government, they are volunteer organisations. She was lucky, a quick google search can tell you how many elderly people have died in Scotland over winter as their heating gets too expensive for their state pensions to cover.
It gets worse, because there is one big thing worse than the Conservative Party. and that is UKIP. UKIP is a group that has grown large in England, and it wants to see the eradication of “non-british nationals” from our lands, regarldess of how much they may contribute to the economy. UPIK teaches hatred and intolerace, they believe that the solution to the immigrant-free population is to FORCE PEOPLE TO BREED. We in Scotland are very proud of our multi-cultural status, we don’t see “minorities” as a bad thing, we love that everyone is different - even if we don’t always understand things being done differently. We actually have incentives to small businesses that if they employ a certain percentage of minority peoples then they can receive bonuses (I think its a tax reduction, or else a sum of money - You may need to look into that yourself if you’re still even reading) and scotland (especially Glasgow) is very proud of our LGBT inclusion. Where England Legalised Same-Sex Marriage, they have a clause for Trans people where their spouce needs to sign a disclaimer saying they know the other is “not as they appear”. Scotland went “Nah if it’s equal, it’s equal for all of the community” and didn’t include that (legally you can still Annul a marriage if the marriage is not “consummated”
UKIP have actively admitted that they don’t like different cultures, different races or different sexualities. (and it doesn’t matter how many generations your family has been British, if you are not the white majority, they will hate you too.) UKIP are essentially Nazis, and seeing their success in England a lot of the other political parties have started to go to the far right as well, even Labour (The old “working mans” party - they used to represent the poorer folks who work in the trades) have turned into a copy-paste cut-out of the conservative party, whilst the conservatives have gone further right again. The rich poor divide is on it’s way to resembling that of the Americas - except England is mostly doing okay.
A lot of people who voted “No” to Independence have done it because they were promised (last minute) of more diplomatic powers for Scotland, a rug that is quickly being pulled out from under our feet (Even after only one day). The rest voted “No Thanks” because they believed all of the lies. The main one being “You can never make it on your own, we will hold on to the bank accounts, and the mortgage, you’ll tear apart the childrens lives, you’re no good alone and we will never help you out - ever again”
I write this LONG and rambling post because I’m aware that the eyes of the world were on us last night (September 18th) and that we are likely the laughing stock of the world. I wanted to let you know what’s actually going on here.
