Sturgeon: I’m beginning to understand the #remain fairytale EU

When I look at the EU I see an organisational structure and a series of rules and regulations and for me the sum total of the EU is how that structure and the rules it enforces affect me and the society around me. And as such there is no doubt whatsoever that we are leaving the EU when the rest of the UK does so.

So, I have watched with total bemusement as our deluded leader Sturgeon has mouthed off to the world press promises that clearly cannot be kept about “staying in the EU” given the structure and rules of the EU.

She is clearly very for “something” but it is not the real EU that I see, so what is it she sees in the EU? A first clue is this idea that is being suggested of “Scotland in both the EU and UK”. OK, so let’s start with the obvious question. Which parliament is it that the EU rules over? If it is the UK parliament – then the UK has not left the EU, so it is not the UK. But if it is the Scottish parliament, then how can the EU dictate policies that are not within the remit of the Scottish parliament. How does the EU control the Scottish army for example (as we now have confirmed is the plan in the near future).

If a general in Scotland receives an order from the EU to invade the UK and another one from the UK to invade the EU – which do they do? It is laughable that anyone is even offering such daft proposals. The EU is a governance structure, its not a facebook page. There is no “friends” button to the EU – you are either in it or out.

The only exception is oversees territories like Belize for the UK and Greenland for Denmark. But in both these cases the central banks, parliament, administration, taxes etc. etc. are controlled from within the EU under EU control. The EU allows countries to allow dependent territories to behave as if they are outside the EU. The EU cannot “allow” the UK if it is outside the EU to do anything, so the idea of Scotland in the UK and EU is complete utter nonsense.

So, what then is this “EU” that Sturgeon seems to think she is in, if it isn’t the organisational structure and rules which are what the real EU is made up of?

It appears the EU to which she thinks she belongs is a “social” entity – a group of people who “like” each other as “friends” in the same way people “like” and “friends” people on facebook. It is I suppose a “facebook EU” – one where “membership” really just amounts to be “best buddies” without any consideration for rules, regulations, finance, etc.

It’s all airy fairy utopianism with no substance. And that is very clear from the way she thinks she can get around EU rules and regulations not by looking at the rules and regulations but by finding more and more “friends”. She really does seem to think that if she gets enough people to be “best friends” that the rules will magically change.

But that is not how the EU works. The EU is a system of governance. It is about who is in charge not who is friends with whom. Indeed, it really isn’t a group of “friends” at all, but instead a group of the normal back-stabbing bastards that get on in politics (like the SNP). The kinds of people who will smile as they stab you in the back. And Sturgeon is clearly well out of her league in the EU – having spent all the last week making promises she can’t keep and revealing all her deck of cards in one go (which is not much) leaving her opponents in the EU and UK laughing at her naive stupidity.

Where from here?

It’s quite clear from the way the news has moved to issues further south that Sturgeon is being ignored except by the three numpties of the media (BBC, Guardian and Independent). These are the ultra pro-EU press, those who hate democracy and the plebs having any say. So, they love the SNP & Sturgeon for standing up for the chattering classes against the great hoards of unwashed voters.

But except for a never ending echo chamber from the SNP to the three numpties and back, I can’t really see much else happening. The initial “charge” has fizzled out. The great crusade to win over the EU has failed to get a hearing with Tusk. The Survation poll showed most Scots do not want another referendum (nor do I want to waste another month – just to get the same result).

What I don’t see happening is any moves e.g. to benefit from leaving the EU – particularly getting back our fishing. I don’t see Sturgeon reassuring business – instead her patently false assertions about staying in the EU are only adding to the uncertainty caused by Brexit.

To understand the impact on business of the SNP delay, you need to think of it as a race. The gun went off last Thursday – now those in England know there is a race, they are starting to prepare and whilst a few options still need sorting (like whether in/out of single market), they have a limited number of routes and are already making progess.

But here in Scotland – the SNP are arguing with the starting official whether we in Scotland should be running the race at all. But the rules of the EU dictate we will be running the race – so rather than starting with all the other competitors with a reasonable chance of winning – we in Scotland are sitting around as everyone else in the UK gets ahead of us. So when the SNP finally admit that we have to run the race – we in Scotland have f*ck all chance of winning and our businesses will be wiped out by the competition in England who were able to get on with it because they don’t have the numpty SNP.

My hope is that as business contemplates the appalling behaviour of Sturgeon over the last week, and translates it into how it affects them, and then as they meet their local politicians, and then as that message is slowly conveyed up the tree (if it happens at all and is not massively distorted by SNP activists) that eventually the message will start to get through to the tiny little brain at the top of the SNP that they are causing immense damage to Scotland. My hope is that will happen quick enough that we don’t have too much of a disadvantage against companies in the rest of the UK.

However, I’ve never found the SNP to be a listening party. Any such message will completely contradict their world view, and I’ve found that when that happens the SNP just shut their ears and hum to drown out the message.

So, I fear the SNP are not going to be listening to any of the cooler heads or industry voices telling them how disastrous their behaviour has been. Or if they do, we’ll be years behind the rest of the UK and totally unable to catch up. Scottish businesses will go under because businesses from the rest of the UK will be up and running outside the EU long before we are even off the starting block.

All anyone appears to be able to do, is to wait to see what daft things the SNP come up with next – in the hope they tend toward being less and less daft until we have some idea what is going to happen. My fear, is that by the time Scotland knows what is happening, our economy will be in a slump, we’ll be selling up our house at a huge loss (over present prices) and moving out of Scotland with so many other talented people.

  1. Scotland wastes another day crawling up the EU’s arse.

    Sturgeon will return from the Europe with nothing to offer Scotland except a new independence referendum campaign. That has been their plan all along. If the Scots want an indyref2 then Scotland will suffer from more years of uncertainty which means the economy will suffer.

    Scotland cannot force England & Wales to stay in the EU against their will.  Has it ever occured to these numpties that if England was forced to remain in the EU then English Nationalism will rise and perhaps it will be the English who send the Scots packing?  England can easily maintain a union with Wales & N. Ireland. Scotland will be kicked out of the Union. Scotland will just become just another undemocratic, economic basket case in the EU.

    SNP are divisive scum who will bring Scotland to its knees for its own selfish ends and the Scots will just let it happen. Pathetic and cowardly.

    Has it occured to the Scots that by voting independence they will just become an undemocratic pro EU one party dictatorship, perhaps one that would have made Hitler proud if he were still alive?  Is that what Scotland really wants?

    How much will the EU charge SNP to sell Scotland down the EU river? £2 billion or £3 billion gold plated euros a year? Can we afford it?

    Scotland needs to mature and the Scots need to accept that by being in the UK Union means participating in democracy of several nations with various interests and Scots need to accept that Scotland cannot act like a dictatorship when things do not go our way.

    This Scot refuses to be a pawn for the S.Nazi Party’s manipulations and I am willing to tell Sturgeon and her pro -EU pals to go & f.ck themselves. I even have the balls to say it directly to their faces if need be.  I just wish other Scots would demonstrate the same courage.

    1. I felt better about the SNP when I used to think they had some cunning master plan – which whilst I could not fathom what it was – they had thought it through like a game of chess and were playing 10 moves ahead.

      Then I heard from Jim Sillars in the campaign, and it clicked that they really were a bunch of arrogant self-deluded gormless twits whose only skill had been to be lucky enough to (once**) espouse an aim that was currently fashionable. (**They are now the pro-EU party and F. to independence)

      So now I know that they really are just insanely obsessed with staying in the EU (largely because it’s another thing they can blame the English on). And so they will be to F.sweet all to e.g. get back our fishing from the EU.

      Any business seeing their mad antics in the last week are going to say “this country isn’t for us” – and if they want in the UK – move to England or if they want in the EU – move somewhere out of Scotland.

      Personally, I’ve gone from a “if you want to look at Universities in England – I won’t stop you” attitude for my son to a “I hope he picks an English University because that will allow him to move out of Scotland if as it appears very likely the Scottish economy will be in a slump when he starts looking for a job”.

      Because with the SNP behaving the way they are, I can’t see Scotland coming out at all well. And, just when my kids are looking for a job – there will be none in Scotland. And you’ve got to be realistic – if their first job is likely to be in England their whole future lives are likely to be in England.

      And what is going to be most ironic – is who are the SNP going to blame for the slump they caused?

      1. SNP’s only plan is for independence. It is not even a ‘master’ plan that our Nation can be proud of. Any excuse for an indyref2 is Sturgeon/Salmond’s ultimate selfish ambition regardless of the costs to our great Nation.  Meanwhile businesses lose confidence in Scotland because the Jokers Sturgeon and her ilk will continue to create huge uncertainty for the Scottish economy in years to come with constant calls for indepedence. SNP to me are morally bankrupt and will destroy Scotland for their own selfish ends.

        The SNP MPs in Westminster ultimate plan is too stick their Pro- EU thumbs up their backside and never lift a finger to help vulnerable Scots or even bother to get off their backsides to reach out to them.  Meanwhile the Scots will be wondering why Scotland is going down the tubes and SNP will blame their opponents the Tories and the Brexiters for the mess that Scotland is in. SNP do not want devolution to work and will do bugger all for Scotland until they have a pro -EU independence agenda. The same pitiful plan is now in place at Holyrood. They also plan to brainwash the Scottish sheeple with endless positive mantras for the SNP vote while blaming the Tories/Brexiters for SNP’s lack of motivation to help Scotland.  Sturgeon and her ilk cannot exist without a scapegoat to blame for all of Scotland’s problems. Fact

        It is time that the Scots woke up to SNP’s stupidity and do it soon. The SNP’s priorities are wrong, it should be Scotland comes first and the EU second, not the other way about.

        I fail to see why SNP are demanding independence so soon when they have NOT even considered what the Brexit negotiations have to offer Scotland. I believe Brexit will turn out to be beneficial to Scotland in the long term. SNP will never make good poker players as they insist on playing too many jokers instead of aces. Losers.

        Well guess what? This Scot is tired of the same old SNP tripe! They having nothing new to offer. The Stale Nonsense
         Party needs to evolve.

  2. ……Meanwhile, Tony B.liar is running around like a headless chicken. He has made it his priority to stop Brexit and he has hinted he wants to become involved in Brexit negotiations, this ensures that he and Mandelscum can continue to remain on the EU gravy train.

    It is all misdirection, folks. Tony B.liar thinks he is starring in Derren Brown’s latest Crap Magic Show. The murdering scum is fooling no one as Chilcot will reveal. They can whitewash the Chilcot enquiry all they want, but we all know the truth. B.liar and his ilk should be impeached.

    Speaking of crap magic. The media naively believes that UKIP approached that crap NLP, pop- psychologist, Paul McKenna, on how to hypnotise the Brits into voting for Brexit. I have been a sceptic for most of my life, McKenna’s hypnotism will never work on me. Crap magic is so last decade, just a money grubbing scam.  Innit?

    They are fooling only themselves now.

    I believe that Tony Bliar and the whole of the Labour Party must pay compensation to the families whose sons and daughters were victims to the Labour Party’s unnecessary, bloody war.

    The Labour Party cannot just get away with meaningless apologies. As a collective, the Labour Party is wholly responsible for their messy wars. Thus, they must compensate all families who lost their children in the futile war that was Iraq.

    Actions speak louder than words. Compensate the families.

    Compensation paid out by the Labour Party collective should extend to David Kelly’s family.

    As for the poor Iraqis? Will they ever hold the Labour Party to account?

    Is it a sad day for justice.
