Prime Ministerial candidates who DENIAL REALITY are slashing their own credibility by telling the world that the Dover queues are unrelated to Brexit, while Gordon Brown is once again to advise on how to maintain the role of the Scotland as a colony. So now seems like a good time to remind us that Westminster’s direct lie dates back to 2014 and its response to the Scottish independence movement.
The good news is that next time around Westminster representatives will have little impact each time they speak, as the sense of authority they possessed at the start of 2014 has, through their own actions, completely evaporated. No one will believe them, their love agents, their promises, their wishes or their threats.

Exploitation – again misleading – of today’s “once in a generation” claim cannot hold for long. So, in anticipation of a referendum on Scottish independence, the British government calculated that keeping Britain out of the customs union and single market (Northern Ireland is a pity collateral) would diminish the appeal of independence in Scotland. The plan would be to join after an unscheduled independence vote that BBC Scotland is in perpetual training to deliver.
Given their alignment with the Tories, Westminster’s other two major parties appear to be in on the action – agreeing to prioritize damaging the UK economy and its export traders so as not to ‘lose’ the Scotland with its financial, energy and water resources.
Westminster is not interested in Scotland, but they do not want “their” country to become smaller. And this dark Johnson era proved even more that she regards Scotland as an irritation to be disciplined and suppressed; as well as being its own resource to be exploited at will, whatever Scotland’s priorities.
