SNP man miles off target when he says British is OK
Andrew Wilson, an SNP high flyer who wants to see the gradual approach
taken by Scots as they move slowly towards independence has made the
blunder that ought to end his political career.
He said that the Scots shouldn't worry about voting SNP and hence voting
for independence and still feel OK about calling themselves "British".
The Islands may exist, but the word is a swear word - its that simple.
The "B" word.
All it stands for is 300 years of exploitation of our people, our resources,
subservience to a NON Scottish Royal family and rivers of blood
spent making vast profits to build up Londons coffers. It stands for
representation at Westminster that has been TOTALLY ineffective.
Its now stands for 1 million SCOTSMEN and SCOTSWOMEN living in poverty -
no Andrew, feeling British is NOT allright. It is a rancid, archaic
collection of jingoistic clap trap that needs to be flushed from everything
Scotland should be next century. No Union Jacks. No British. Just
independent Scots and English trading and living side by side with NO
interference from London anymore. The English need our business as much as
we need theirs. Heres to independence, Scottish and English. NOT British.
