Brexit - That'll be Scotch Splitists ...

This weekend's revelations from the Holyrood Magazine with regards Ms May's dimension shifting and time warping efforts over Brexit encompassed in her statement, "SNP have to share blame for Brexit." explains clearly who fed Mumbling Murdo his line "It wisnae me, it wis yon Gnats did it then ran away, mister" - the chaps in Tory Central Office. Once again the Scotch Tory branch office in Scotland barking on command.

It seems a pity the interviewer failed to point out to Ms May that the SNP actually delivered the preferred vote of the British Establishment, to stay in the EU, from Scotland by the best part of a 2:1 majority while missing the point as to why little England voted in the way it did. No, much easier to blame the wrong sort of nationalism, 'Scottish Nationalism', and its threat to 'British Nationalism' as the reason why the majority of English voters voted to ditch the EU. 

This is a line of attack that may appeal to the hacks in the Daily Mail, Express or Telegraph as it washes away, Pontius Pilate style, their thirty plus years of anti-EU propaganda, lies and misinformation over the EU and its impact on the UK which actually lie like a lead weight on the Tory Party's claims. Nor does this line of attack cover the rise and rise of the xenophobic English Nationalism of the Tory's own right wing, UKIP and those even further into England's sick, fascist fringe of British Nationalism.

Ms May could, with the same logic, blame Mr Corbyn's drift to the right centre ground from right wing Blairism as the reason for the Brexit vote and why her party is just as riven as Labour across so many key issues, not the least being Brexit as this week's serious of squabbles between Tory light and hard Brexiteers clearly demonstrates.

I have not seem much in the national media addressing the 'why?' behind the anti-EU vote in England and Wales. Those who have looked do not like the answer so conflate and prevaricate while trying to pretend the vote was not one by an English Nation sick of the current form of government from Westminster and who, like many Scots, want to be free from its corruption, ineffectiveness, self interest and cronyism. An English nation which wants its own parliament versus a British Establishment which knows that to do so means their 'gemme's a bogey', the UK Parliamentary Union is dead.

The anti-EU vote in England caused not so much a ripple in the British Establishment pond as a Tsunami, one they were not prepared for in any shape or form and still have no plan to prevent further collapse and disaster. UK Prime minister's and the British Establishment's arrogance towards the EU is now being repaid in full. If there is one project which has united the EU it is Brexit and ensuring the UK gets the worst deal possible from the EU on leaving. Just consider the language coming from usually opaque and dithering EU spokesmen and women:
  • There will be no negotiation on UK trade with the EU until after the UK has exited and no 'special deals'
  • The UK seeking to establish trade deals outside of the EU prior to leaving the EU will bring down heavy fines on the UK Government
  • The UK needs to stop dithering and trigger Article 50
  • The City of London's current EU fiscal passports will be null and void on Brexit
I doubt even Ms May can sell this as the language of a soft Brexit being offered to anyone but the most daft of her right wing supporters. The EU is out for vengeance over all the veto's and other behind the scenes chicanery perpetrated by UK Prime Minister's in the EU Council of Ministers since 1979. This is a dish best supped cold and the EU's chief Brexit negotiator, Mr Verhoffen, has made clear it is a dish he is going to sup long and slow.

Her foreign secretary merely has to open his mouth to get slapped down by her team. Her new 'Trade Minister' is sitting on his thumbs as he can not do much else than sound folk out until Brexit. These two numbskulls apparently are busy having some sort of a turf war as to which one will lead the Brexit negotiations when they commence which will only cause Mr Verhoffen even more joy busily playing Boris the Buffoon off against Dr Death and watching as they disappear up each others rectums.

It seems the rest of the world recognises the total and utter shambles which actually is Brexit and the total chaos this is causing at the heart of the British Establishment. The rest of the world is looking on and having a right good laugh as the once 'great' British Empire gets its just deserts - the reality is no one actually cares and no country will be in any rush to help - the UK is just not worth the effort, stupid is as stupid does, they are just waiting to pick up the pieces of any remaining value.

Of course you will not read any of this in the UK media but a troll of world media sites will tell you the Japanese Industrial sector see Brexit as a disaster and is putting in place plans to extricate its UK investments and close its UK factories. The world finance industry is well on its way to down sizing its UK operations, Bloomberg estimates jobs in this sector are leaving London at the rate of 10,000 a month with the employees being given the choice of a move to Dublin or Frankfurt or be made redundant. UK Pension funds have lost 30% of their value since June 23rd and the pound is trading close to equivalence with the Euro and dollar. The Bank of England's latest sale of UK Government Bonds to cover the latest round of QE has struggled to find a market. 


You will read about Brangelina (who ever the hell she is), some talentless show or other, the defection of some nonentity in some cookery program and didn't our British athletes do well, PS - things really are not that bad honest .... we have no evidence to back this up, mind, but the EU will see sense in the end.

One last question to ponder:

Why should Scotland stay in a parliamentary union with a country in whom the majority of its own electorate do not trust its governing class, as far as they can throw them?
