Is New Labour ruining Scotland’s reputation?

Is New Labour ruining Scotland’s reputation?

I was brought up to like the Scots and to respect their undoubted contribution to Humanity united under the Flag of Great Britain – The Magnificent RegimentS, the Scientists, the Engineers, the able administrators throughout Empire. I enjoyed Holidays there, I had a few of their feisty women and even spent an educational weekend drinking the Saracens Head in Glasgow.

However twice recently long established ARRSER Biscuits AB has accused me of bigotry in the way I had casually criticised my Scottish Brethren.

After undergoing a period of re-education and self criticism for my thought crimes I realised that Biscuits AB was right I now have a problem with the Scots and the reason why is obvious.

For the past ten years a yoke of self serving Evil has held the reins of the UK, the majority of this cabal has been Scottish ne’er-do-wells unable to find honest employment in their home regions, feeding on the corpse of Labours proud traditions.

Every time somebody in Parliament declares that black is white, that it will only cost a fraction of what the London School of Economics says, that only 15,000 per year will arrive, that nothing is a problem, that the Army is over funded, all white people are rapists and ‘its all Tory lies’; the chances are it will be done in a thick Scottish Accent.

The ongoing damage to Scotland’s good name is colossal, the accent is fast becoming synonymous with political spivery of the worst sort, it is only the actions of Scottish Soldiers and a certain baggage handler in Glasgow that has kept the Traditional reputation alive.

What is to be done?

Get past your prejudice and realise that the vast majority of the cabinet have non-Scottish accents? Try to understand that this is probably the way that lots of Scots felt about the Tory Government before the establishment of the Scottish Parliament? Move to the Costa Del Sol?

Armchair - see my rant on the Clarkson thread.

Here, here. Mrs Taz, and her rabidly jock family all hate Lairbour and their mediocre shower of sh*ts. They still do think Braveheart is a factual documentary though. And Mother in Law cheered every other team against England in the last Rugby World Cup. Apart from South Africa. And France. She hates the French. She likes the Australians but was secretly happy when the English stuffed them. Now I come to think of it, there aren't many other nations she does like.

Warlike race the Scots. Just look at Mrs Taz after a night on the sauce.

This one?

The issue between English and Scots (and Welsh for that matter) is, unfortunately, spiralling out of control. To my mind it goes something like this:

Antipodean anti-semitic midget makes film about brave wee Scotsman standing up to nasty English king. Is about historically accurate as U571 but manages to stir passion in some tenanment in Glasgow still owned by actual Scotsmen.

Alex Samaloin, on back of said midgets film, starts to actually make some in-roads in Scottish politics.

Newly-elected Lairbour, full of Jocks and now crapping themselves that, if they lose Scotland to the nationalists, they won't get back in power decided to take another 'hey man won't this be really popular, everyone will love us because we want to be loved sooo much' decision and offer devolution.

Scots, only stupid when it comes to deep frying Mars Bars, see the gift horse, happily shackle it and vote for devolution. Now able to spend their tax money, and a good slice of English tax payers money, on what they want (i.e. decent schools and hospital care that are unavailable south of the border) things look rosy. Jocks also manage to have a damn good laugh at the fact they are telling the English what to do and they know there is s*d all the English can do about it.

Liarbour all happy now turn their attention to invading countries in ever increasing size and giving Basil Brush more human rights that single fathers.

Unfortunately for Liarbour, the wheels start coming off the Scotland Labour waggon when, true to Lairbour form, they manage to produce a monstrosity of a Scottish Parliament building at only 400% over budget. And the windows don't fit. Scots realise that Lairbour are, in fact, mostly crap and vote in porridge thumping unrealist Alex Savaloy who starts deliberately goading the English whilst not realising that they are, in fact, funding his policies (and most of his country).

English start to get pretty cheesed off at the real, or perceived, inequality, especially as a dour, miserable, incompetent Jock who's MP seat is North of the Border is happily destroying the country with his 'new vision' (read, same bollacks dribbled out over the last 10 years).

Jocks realise Liarbour are crap. English reach conclusion at same time and decide that, funnily enough, if English MPs cannot vote on Scots policy, the same should be true in reverse. This receives high approval both sides of the border - after all both races are known for their common sense. PM Brown now getting brown trouser stains when he realises, if this happens, as PM he will be unable to vote on English matters. Suddenly decides to invent 'Britishness' but still can't fly the Union flag because all his immigrant mates prefer the Pakistani, Somali, Bangladeshi etc flag and would accuse him of being nasty if he made them speak English (sorry British). Brown realises that the only truly British organisation is the hated, colonial armed forces. Decides to keep starving them of funds in case they rise up in a coup.

The future? Let's hope the midget Gibson doesn't decide to make a film where the brave canny Alex storms to power in Scotland, smiting the cruel but cowardly English overlords because enough great unwashed north of the border made decide it's true. This will lead enough great unwashed south of the border to get uppity with Johnny Scotsman and who knows where it will end.

The point of all the crap i've written is - the great JC was bemoaning the fact that English values have been steadily eroded over the last 10 years. These values are 'British' values but he can't say that now because some fat pikey running the Scottish Parliament thinks the English are more dangerous than HIV and wants nothing to do with them. Decent Scots folk don't think they same thing, hence why Salamondo won't dare call a referendum on independence cos he knows he will lose (QED No point in a Scottish Independance Party). I agree with Biscuits, JC could have chosen English examples of greatness, but rather than picking holes in his arguement accept the fact that we are all being screwed by eeyjits without a clue. Together we conquered large parts of the global and asset stripped them. Apart we are falling into petty squabbles.

By the way i'm married to a porridge eater. Live the slogan 'make love not war'.


Edited to add: Damn slow day at work.

Yup - that's the baby.

Still no more busy now than I was this morning. Spent half an hour reading the British Army Review on the karzi just to give me something to do.

If I remember right, this is a Democratic country, with a first past the post system. Liarbour have won the last elections and there leader was elected from within that party, whether he be English, Welsh, Scottish or Irish.
It is up to that leader of said party to pick his cabinet from his mates, whether it is Liarbour, Tory and LDs etc. even if they are English, Scottish, Welsh etc.
It just so happens that at the moment there are a few Scots in the cabinet, whereas under the Tories there were very few if any.
Did we Scots moan when that happened, you bet we did when we were shafted with programmes that destroyed industry and social wellbeing.
Now the glove is on the other foot, there are members of the UK moaning about the over representation of Scots in the Govnt, fair enough, what goes around comes around.
Live with it. And BTW I don't support any party.

And at the time of the Conservative Government a vote in Parliament was for the whole country, not just parts of it.
Don't get me wrong, Westminster took all the profits from the North Sea oilfields for the whole country and the Conservatives did screw up plenty of things up north.
The point jihad is (I think) trying to make is that, because the most public faces of the Liarbour movement speak in jock accents, this can make the unwashed think there is a conspiracy. And that Lairbour have done, possibly irrepairable, damage to the Union because of their popularist move towards devolution. Like Human Rights, Europe etc etc they are now back-peddaling furiously for their own lack of foresight.
I repeat again - we are stronger together. Look at the Balkans, Iraq, Sudan etc etc to show you how quickly it can unravel in a very nasty way. Are we truly above that possibility with the moronic politicians we have now?

Its still a cracking rant Taz. I'm a unionist BTW before I get shoed by the office Scotsman and I don't care which part of the Union the PM comes from so long as they are indeed British.. They are all crap and the damage done thus far might be unrepairable. I hope not though.

Taz,

Not even vaguely, the only reason to follow any of the tosspots is out of a morbid sense of curiousity. I left 2 years after the bag of pus gained office and having been in very close proximity to the smarmy tw@ts at Liz's Gaff and heard first hand some of the pompous bullsh1t they were spouting, it really is no wonder that I resigned when I did!

If our brethren North of the Border genuinely think they are better off on their own .... Go on chaps, crack on. I say this simply because that is the (false??) impression portrayed by the media and not just the usual red banner hankies either. I hear no rejections of this concept from anywhere north of Carlisle. So whilst I cannot abide our current crop of politicos I am less sure that it is they who have ruined Scotland's reputation, than the feckless sponging twats living there who have been happy to accept charity from the rest of the Union.

Rant Ends....
Lift Stone...
Crawl Under.
