I was just listening to the six o clock news and was gasping in amazement at the brass neck of our betters in Westminster…two news items whose hypocrisy quotient was hitting 100.
First we were told that Brussels believes Britain’s case for mounting a campaign against economic immigrants was in breach of EU rules because no evidence had been produced to justify treating them differently from UK citizens…they don’t come here to take advantage of lax benefits rules and they contribute more in tax than they claim in benefit. The EU has been asking for three years to see evidence of the UK Government’s concern. None is forthcoming. That’s because there is none. Their campaign is race-based and plays to the bigots in the London media and the UKIP gang. But what I loved was the “Who Me?” reaction of the government. “Are you accusing us of making it up,” they asked. Good heavens, no, old boy. Certainly nobody in Scotland could think you ever made it up. Although a Mr Moore, a chartered accountant in the Borders, did say he wondered if it might be possible. You don’t think any member of the UK government has made up stories about Scotland, do you?
They were caught bang to rights lying – yes, lying – in order to treat foreigners as spongers. What a despicable racist crew they are. And how ironic that the same people bombarding the Scottish Government with demands for answers, are revealed to have none themselves when asked by the EU…
Then we heard how mighty Britain’s stance against free borders in the Schengen Agreement was being compromised because…because free-spending Chinese tourists want in and have money to burn. So the great principle of standing up to those nasty European foreigners who want free borders – and of course preventing free movement for the Scots who will find England erecting a border after independence – simply evaporates as soon as someone points out there’s some dosh in it.
Brave Dave does it again…chickens out when the going gets tough or when someone flashes the cash. Principles are clearly for suckers. The message of course is that after a Yes vote the same weakness will be exposed and the brave talk of no defence contracts, no sterling, no friends and no support will collapse at the first wave of a Saltire in his face.
We now know what he learned at Eton…stand up and stand proud – until somebody says Boo then get down on one knee, tug the forelock and put out the begging bowl. It doesn’t matter if it’s the Irish – with their free travel zone in the UK – China – with their American Express card tourists – or the Scots with their independence. Brave Dave may be the Prime Minister of the diminishing UK but his real job is the Master of Bluster
