I was watching the leader’s speech at the Scottish National Party conference. Nicola Sturgeon spoke about her vision of a social democratic Scotland at the heart of Europe. She has declared that there will be a second referendum on independence for Scotland. She has blamed the British government because she claims the British government is seeking a hard Brexit.
What would happen if a Scottish Parliament were to support a referendum and the British government were to refuse to give its permission? Is the UK government going to send in the military against Scotland? I can’t imagine The Conservative government acting like the English King in the film “braveheart”.
The British Conservative Party has rejected it’s past One Nation policy. Margaret Thatcher killed the One Nation Conservatives. The base of its support is in international finance in London and in military industry. Everyone else are discarded as non beings by the Conservatives. Scotland, Wales. Northern Ireland and the north of England are rejected by this British government.The Conservatives are like overlords ruling restless subject peoples. The Conservatives claim to represent free markets. But in fact the big banks etc and the military industrial complex are state protected industries. The modern Conservatives represent big money and no one else.
