I hate Wee Eck so .....

Here's the problem for the 'I hate Wee Eck, so I'll vote 'no' folk, they are cutting their nose off to spite their face. By voting 'No' they are ensuring Scotland will be ruled by an ever more right wing and increasingly fascist Westminster, a government which is an antithesis to the Scottish sense of fairness, for many more decades but hopefully not centuries to come.

Further it makes no sense because many of the 'We hate Wee Eck' brigade will have voted for 'Wee Eck' indirectly and, in so doing, made the SNP the majority party in Holyrood because they actually do what they say they will do for Scotland. This dichotomy does not appear to have changed as opinion polls indicate the SNP vote share has increased since 2011 which is a bit strange for a party where so many of the Scottish electorate claim to 'hate Wee Eck'.

There is a psychological process, it is called displacement, where individuals shift their hatred on to another person simply because they make that person represent their own sense of betrayal by or of others. This process would suggest their anger is not actually directed at 'Wee Eck', 'Wee Eck' has simply become a scapegoat for their realisation of just how badly they have been betrayed by Labour's Scottish Mafia.

This is clearly an irrational response to a conditioned state ( My Grandad voted Labour, My Dad voted Labour, so ....). 

The only response is to paraphrase Kennedy: 

'Think not of what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country'.
