The reason that we must stay together, according to the David Posh Boy (DPB), in Glasgow today, is that the UK together had, among other achievements, built the NHS, created the BBC and defeated fascism.
OK. Just as passing thoughts, the NHS was built quite separately in Scotland, before the English version and the UK is dismantling the NHS in England right now. There soon won't be one.
The BBC is not something in recent years that I've ever been proud of. Over many years they have taken our money and used it to afford themselves the most luxurious of lifestyles while dropping the standards of their programming. They appear to have allowed paedophiles free reign, with almost everyone aware of crimes that were taking place and saying nothing. A proud and honourable organisation then? And as DPB was talking in Scotland, we should also point out that BBC in this country stands for Biased and Bitter Clots (and that's the polite version).
I'm sure that the Canadians and the Australians and all the other Commonwealth countries that sent troops to the Second World War, not to mention the Americans and Soviets, who gave their lives in millions and took lives on the Eastern Front, will be happy to know that it was was the UK and Scotland together that defeated fascism. The rest might as well have stayed at home.
It's strange, even if one believes DPB, that Scotland and the rest of the UK couldn't fight against tyranny together again, even if we had different governments. As partners, maybe?
I recall the emotional and pseudo-statesman like speech that Cameron made about the partnership between the UK and its senior partner, the USA, before leaving to meet President Obama, just a few years ago.
At that time, of course, he mixed up the dates of the American involvement in second world war, perhaps a hint of what was to come. Maybe today he was over-correcting his mistake, by leaving the Americans totally out of the war. Never mind, one day he may get it right.
One day, for that matter, he may get a lot of things right. Or maybe not.
In teh meantime, Gideon Posh Boy (GPB), never one to miss the chance of profiting from a disaster, announced that what was wrong with the welfare state was that taxpayers supported the Philpotts (the murdering parents who set fire to 6 of their children).
I thought it might help GPB if I pointed out that most people who receive benefits are not actually like the Philpotts. Most of them are just poor people down on their luck because they have been thrown out of work, or have cancer or depression... and have never tried to murder as much as ONE of their children. I say this because, in fairness, it is likely that GPB's cosseted lifestyle has never afforded him the opportunity to get to know people that collect any kind of help at all from the state...
Oh no, wait a minute, until recently HE collected child benefit, and his friend DPB did too.. and Nick Posh Boy, and DPB also claimed Disability Living Allowance for his disabled son.
So he should know that all claimants are not like the Philpotts.
He just couldn't resist cashing in in the cheapest possible way, on the very understandable hatred that the public feel for the Philpotts right now.
He should remember that just because some MPs claimed for moat cleaning and tree surgeons, hanging baskets and four different houses, doesn't mean that Dennis Skinner is a thief. Keep that in mind Gideon Posh Boy.
