David Cameron and Scotland's Butterfly Rebellion
Well there he was today, David Cameron, the leader of Britain's savage Con regime.
The Prime Minister who has inflicted the most pain on the British people since the bestial Margaret Thatcher.
Trying to bully the Scottish people into voting NO by threatening them with a "painful divorce."
David Cameron has delivered a stark message to the people of Scotland that they would face a "painful divorce" from the rest of United Kingdom if they voted for independence in the referendum on Thursday.
Even though nobody has done more than Cameron and his brutish government to fuel Scotland's peaceful revolt. By waging war on the poor, privatizing medicare, selling the Royal Mail, going after seniors and the disabled, and driving tens of thousands of people from their homes.
And all he can offer the Scots with two days to go before the historic vote, is more of the same: more fear, more threats, more suffering, more death wrapped in the velvet glove of the rich and the powerful.
The bully boy from Eton's Bullingdon Club.
And his gang of Con beasts.
In his nightmarish United Kingdom...
Where the poor get poorer, and rich get richer, and the fat cats purr as the cream runs down their whiskers.
And the good news?
This was the scene at a concert for the YES side in Edinburgh the other night...
As polls show the referendum is now too close to call.
And their message, like the one a young handicapped woman cllmbed the steep cliff under Edinburgh Castle to place...
Is we are not afraid
We are a proud nation. And hope will conquer fear.
Because despite what you might read in our bought corporate media, and as I have tried so hard to explain, that's what this struggle is all about.
It's about the right of a people trapped in an increasingly right-wing country, to choose to live in a kinder, gentler, left-wing country.
And in the face of the NO side's ugly fear campaign, it is a magnificent butterfly rebellion.
The lairds came to warn us villagers to do as we were told. Then the lords came to warn us villagers to do as we were told. But we were in the fields building a rebellion.
Taking on the might of the massed media.
The inky wing of the British Empire does not know what to do. Historians will psychoanalyse the columns of Alan Cochrane in the Telegraph, monitoring their descent from pompous, self-certain swagger to incoherent, panicked meltdown. The Times, the Scotsman, the Mail, the Express, all peer out at Scotland from behind their barbed wire.
And the terror campaign of their rich corporate masters.
In a room behind a locked door, behind a policeman, behind a gate, behind another policeman, a group of millionaires get together. One, an old Etonian, nominally runs the country. The others, the CEOs of big corporations, actually run the country. They decide on a strategy: terror. We. Will. Take. Your. THINGS. From. You. It’s a fair trade, of sorts – give up your chance of self-determination and in return we will give you the cheap things that you love. This is Britain.
With their own social media, and an army of volunteers.
A passionate but peaceful revolt, and a shining example to others in Britain...
When the people of Britain see their titans defeated by a rebel army who used infographics and humour, what is there to stop them following? England needs its butterfly rebellion as well.
And hopefully an example to those of us in Canada. Because as I've said many times before, their struggle is OUR struggle.
And anyone who doesn't support it, out of some misplaced colonial attachment to a United Kingdom that was murdered by the Cons long ago, is not a progressive as far as I'm concerned.
But as for me, I'm with the rebels all the way.
So all I can say is soar my precious Alba soar...
Fly bravely towards your dreams.
So you can finally be the nation you want and deserve.
And so others may follow you.
Today it's your turn to fight for a better country, and a better world.
Tomorrow it will be ours...
