Onwards And Upwards
Call me Dave is panicking. It's his duty to meet the Queen this week to discuss affairs of state and he's been sending out enormous feelers to the Unionist community for tips on how to respond to constitutional questions regarding the independence of Scotland.
The MSM have been reasonably quiet about the issue because they haven't come up with any answers - with the exception of suggesting that Dave should call Alex Salmond's bluff and bring forward the referendum. Maybe it's best ex-military personnel stick to defence matters and not make such fools of themselves, especially when they qualify their comment with, "I'm not a politician".
The Sun and Express are on the case though, as was the Times on Friday.
It's quite astonishing how often the Unionists repeat the majority of Scots don't want independence. How do they know? Another scaremongering ploy of course and negative thinking because they've no sensible case for Scotland not taking control of its own affairs.
Is the Queen concerned about the political change in Scotland? I should think not because she has few assets here other than a palace, a castle plus a few but 'n' bens sprinkled around.
The Unionists are panicking because they realise the referendum may not go their way. The answer is for those who desire independence to keep the pressure on every minute of every day. Once the Scottish government commences serious discussion about independence and how the country will benefit, then the Unionists will have nothing to add other than spin.
Onwards and upwards.
