..............and yet you're the guy who said (quite correctly) that the middle classes have nothing to fear from the SNP. :rolleyes:

 

Unlike nationalism down south (UKIP) the Scottish variety is inclusive, indeed I doubt if their is a minority that Nicola Sturgeon hasn't made a play for! :rolleyes:

 

I want an independent Scotland and a time machine so that we can go back to the 70s listen to Prog Rock and twin ourselves with Pol Pot's Cambodia! :P

 

No you don't. .

That first paragraph is simply wrong. We are a nation with a worryingly high number of people who genuinely believe we are going to become a socialist utopia virtually overnight. They are going to be the first wave of people whose character will crumble at the slightest hint of the first difficult problem hitting and that's a problem because they tend to be the most vocal.
A regards that second paragraph, I think Yessers need to cut out the naivety here. It breeds complacency which was the big problem in 2014.
Go and post shite about something else.

No I didn’t!

 

I said that the SNP have implemented right wing policies, stealing money from the poor to bribe the middle classes to win their votes.

 

But as the economy would be fcuked if we became independent, then the middle classes would have everything to fear!

Yeh, cos Scotland is such a tolerant nation, unlike down south. We have no problem with immigrants in this country!

 

er, except that still haven’t even come to terms with large scale immigration from Ireland and even have 2 huge football clubs whose business model is to exploit the intolerance of the Scottish nation!

 

Scotland is an intolerant, right wing xenophobic nationalist country!

Good. It's about time the middle classes, who pay for everything, got something back once in a while. :D

1. This is 2019 not 2014 & Project Fear ain't gonna work again. The real economic danger for Scotland is not unhitching ourselves from the Brexit Fundamentalists down south. Even in that case I see the SNP remaining (sic) 1% less austere than the Tories.

2. We may have bigots in the country but the SNP is not bigoted in the way UKIP & the EDL are. As for religious intolerance it was the SNP who brought in a law designed to tackle it and it was the other parties who revoked it when we lost our overall majority at Holyrood.

Nice to see you agreeing with Neil Lennon Cap'n! :1eye

Yes indeed, it is madmen like Boris "Fuck Business" Johnson who is the real danger to middle class prosperity!

1) You claim they steal money from the poor. Which party and government was it who decided to cover the cost of bedroom tax in Scotland after the UK government implemented it?

Which part of the UK has just voted to increase carers allowance by £460? Surely can’t be the big, mean, close to majority SNP government?

2) Over 190 countries in the world are independent. Scotland has more resources and exports than a large number of those. Why would the Scottish economy be f**ked after independence?

3) Most countries suffer from some form of racism and xenophobia. Scotland is certainly nowhere near as bad as England in this regard. If it was, the open arms SNP would be nowhere near power. Scotland’s biggest problem is sectarianism, and we know how much of that is linked to two football teams in Glasgow.

Just keeps on getting worse! :toilet

Quote

Downing Street confirms next Queen's speech being held up

The last Queen’s speech, setting out the government’s legislative agenda, was in June 2017 which meant a new Queen’s speech had been due this summer.

Passing a Queen’s speech is a minimum constitutional requirement of a viable government. Cabinet sources admit that the bill that implements Brexit is the last significant piece of legislation in the locker. Mrs May dare not introduce it, however, as she fears that it will be rejected by MPs, forcing her to end the session.

Instead, Downing Street has drawn up a list of relatively benign legislation to justify extending the session beyond the original two-year deadline due in June. It includes bills to change the tax treatment of sporting testimonials and increase the maximum sentences for cases of animal cruelty. Others under consideration in No 10 include measures to address domestic abuse and increase tenants’ rights.

To be fair increasing tennants' rights would be welcome news but it does mean my chicken shagging days may be coming to an end - curse you Nigel Farage!

Your joke aside, I thought tenants rights had been improved by Scottish Government and the proposed bill at Westminster was for tenants in England (&Wales?)

I'm sure you're correct about tennants' rights (your specialist area?) - do you know if the chicken shagging stuff is just for down south too? :oohlala

It was local election night last night in England

I chose like an unprecedented number of people to spoil my ballot paper

This however does NOT even remotely come close to the message we as voters are ready to send out out at the upcoming election in May & the next general election

They haven’t as yet respected the ‘vote’ of 17.4m voters , but they will. They will.

If it's about Brexit, I'm unsure why so many voters then turned to the Lib Dems as they are wanting a second referendum.

I was surprised by that, but the simple answer is this (what Scotland won’t know) there wasn’t alternative votes available on our slips as yet
Some people chose to vote LD as opposed to no vote is what I’ve learned today

People will get a better consensus at GE or perhaps EU votes ?

Less than three weeks to the potential Euro elections! :toilet

Thursday's local elections down south (& in NI) don't seem to have changed much - both May & Corbyn have basically reacted by saying "People want a deal done - my deal".

The clock is ticking on May's leadership but I also think it's ticking for Corbyn now - Jess Phillips anyone?  :jerry

It was a good night for the LibDem's & the Greens but I reckon UKIP will have a better night on the 23rd if the aforementioned Euros go ahead - I know it's a waste of time but please, please, please M&C get something sorted!
