Scoffing ay Danny?

Hello again Tomi

I have noticed you have posted other contributions since I asked you to clarify your use of question marks and rolleyes in your response to one of my posts. I am not going to pursue this with you, so I will drop it. However I will say that I am disappointed in you. It is easy to be sarcastic with someone who is not in your presence. It takes a bigger man than I thought you were to justify your sarcasm.

Scotland is burning under Westminster chaotic rule Danny, do you honestly believe the Tories give two hoots for you and the rest of Scotland?

Or do you think that separation from the EU will make Covid go away on hogmanay?

Jagz

You have a fixation regarding the Tories. For goodness sake, is that it? Every time you post, a response it is always the same answer. Blame the Tories. I HAVE NEVER VOTED FOR THE TORIES.
GOT IT! NEVER, NEVER, NEVER.

I VOTED FOR THE SNP AT THE LAST ELECTION. I VOTED FOR INDEPENDENCE. GOT IT!!!!

Unlike you, I don't want to live in a one party state. I think Boris is a numpty. He is like Trump. They don't adhere to the the three headings that most politicians adhere to when they are addressing issues in politics. you know, the ones I have posted a few times.
1. The Issue
2. The Background
3. The Line to Take.

They both speak off the cuff. Only a numpty like Boris would say in public, "Scottish Devolution has been a failure". I can assure you that there will be many Tory politicians and supporters still wincing about that.

In the USA, senior advisors to Trump will have given up long ago. He doesn't take advice.

I will not be voting for the SNP the next time at the next Scottish Parliament election. This is because the the SNP count my vote to be a vote for EU membership.

You will also have heard that the SNP Government will give ALL school children free meals, IF the SNP win the next Scottish election. Why don't they do it NOW? They make it sound as if it is the SNP who will fund this objective.

Now here is a very important issue. ALL political parties are modelling their economy strategies on yester years wealth creation and job opportunities. They haven't woken up to the fact that we live in the DIGITAL AGE. This means the requirement for humans in manufacturing ,and the retail sector is diminishing.

Robotics will be used in manufacturing. People will sit on their backsides at home and order nearly everything on the internet. the question is, where will they get the money to pay for their purchases.

Here is an example of what I am getting at. Relatively recently the SNP introduced 'modern' apprenticeships. I winced when I first heard that term. one of the jobs referred to as a 'modern' apprenticeship, was sitting at a checkout holding groceries up to a bar code reader. Wow I wonder how many years of night school classes is required to gain enhancing educational qualifications for that trade.

Hold on. The Retail industry which was being supported by politicians for this bold step, played dirty with them. They now give the customer a portable bar code reader to scan every item on the hoof and pay at an unmanned checkout. so 'modern' apprenticeships have had a short life.

The aptly named AMAZON is the future. No political party is going to be able bring back human workers for manufacturing. That is in the past. Just like the coalman delivering the coal on a horse drawn cart in my younger days. There will be no 'High Streets' as we knew them. The question is, how is the wealth accumulated by organizations like Amazon, going to be distributed?

You are like me Jagz. We are yesterdays man. Your support for the SNP is based on outmoded pre digital age technology. The difference is, I know it.

  We are in the middle of a global pandemic. Thousands of people have lost their jobs. The Retail Sector is collapsing, and with it, the Pension Funds. Care Home residents, the Staff, and the relatives of both, are living in a nightmare world.

But hark! Nicola Sturgeon will end this misery in one stroke. She reminds me of Nero when Rome was burning. Listen to her cry, "It is time for Scotland to have its Independence"!

Tomi,

Sorry for pestering you, but in view of your response to my post regarding the Iron Curtain and the murder of British Servicemen by German citizens, it is important to me that I get the opportunity to respond to your above post.

The rolling of your eyes suggests to me that you think I am making up these claims. I can’t let the murder of British troops be pushed aside by you. I have ample proof of West Berlin being behind the Iron Curtain. Just pose that question on Google. Berlin was approximately 100 miles behind the Iron Curtain. I believe you have resided in Germany both as a British Serviceman and a civilian. So I am surprised you question that West Berlin was behind the Iron Curtain.

Danny

Tomi, I don’t want to spoil our friendly exchanges, so I will have to ask you to clarify your use of question marks. It will be better for me to wait for your response before saying other than, I was in West Berlin during 1953 and 1954, serving with the Royal Engineers.

It is over to you.

Regards

Danny

... This was at the height of the Cold War. I served behind the Iron Curtain most of my time in the Army.

Many young servicemen who were children during WW2 lost their lives during their Service time. Including, young men who were murdered by German civilians, while on Guard duty in Western Germany ...

... I know some of you will be scoffing at me ...

Jagz, how about growing up for goodness sake. It is only because of this enforced isolation that I am responding to your post.

So you have now taken it upon yourself to speak on behalf of other EU citizens. You have a big opinion of yourself.

You mention Italy. Another country in a financial mess.

You will go down in history as the great philosopher from Beith.


Jagz, you just won’t accept that Nicola’s minority government are trying to deal with three issues at the same time. 1. Coronavirus. 2. Scotland’s Independence. 3. Brexit.

In practice, you can’t do that. Sorry.


I've to grow up now have i? So much for having a reasonable debate, in there with an insult straight from the off.

No i'm not speaking on behalf of other EU citizens, i don't have a big opinion of myself, you on the other hand do, as your rebuke to Tomi clearly shows that you alone speak for the people of Scotland when you wrote, "I do not mean this in any offensive way Tomi, but I live in Scotland. I am a big enough boy to know if I think the time is right to even talk about the issue of another referendum".

You can add the UK to the list of countries in a, financial mess".

That would be 'of Beith' not "from Beith".

You're right Danny, we can't do all three, we'll scrap Brexit then.

Jagz, neither you nor I can forecast the future. What is the point of having a forum, if I can’t express my opinions? You don’t welcome debate. It is either accept your opinion, or get lost.

Jagz, see your claim that “they have all joined freely without any fear of conquest”, it makes me wonder if you read my posts.

“A proper union of proper states”, you say. I can only put that down to your naivety.



I know we can't Danny, that was my whole point when you said no one could tell you what open borders would do to the country in the future, and of course i welcome debate, and why do you have to be so insulting to me?


I do read your posts Danny, that was why i replied to you when you said

"So Jagz, I don’t hate the EU. I just don’t want Scotland to be subjugated by an organisation which demands open borders".

If you think i'm naive then perhaps you can tell me what you think a, “proper union of proper states”, is then?

Yes, Danny, the issue was swttled and it was 55%/45% for staying in the union of The Crown as it was called back its day.
However something changed and that was with the other Union, namely The European Union where Scotland voted by 68%/32% to remain in that union only to be dragged out screaming by wishes of the greater majority of England.
So being part of one union was detrimental to being part of a greater union.
Of course Brexit was backed (vocally) by Bojo's big mate in the good ol' Ameruican union of the states but he's history now.
The people of Scotland have the right, now that the lies and subterfuge of self-serving polititians has settled, to properly decide their future and that of generations to follow, now that the smoke of deception had cleared and the Westminster Mob are seen off for their meddling tactics and deceit.

Nemo me impune lacessit

Wha daur meddle wi' me?

Hi Tomi

It is refreshing to get a post on this topic, which expresses your point of view without being confrontational.

Yes Scotland voted 68% to 32% during that referendum. However, Scotland wasn’t the issue. It was a vote for or against the UK staying in the EU.

I will repeat what I have already said to Jagz. I know people who voted for the UK to stay in the EU, but voted against Independence. They are two separate Issues.

You possibly have read a previous post of mine which referred to the basic order in which issues are dealt with in politics.

1 The Issue
2 The Background
3 The Line to Take.

So if you try to deal with say, three issues at the one time, it is highly unlikely that one, ‘The Line To Take’ will come up with a proposed line of action which will address the three different issues.

That in my humble opinion is the mistake the SNP is making.

Getting back to the EU, or Brexit referendum, what is being ignored, or forgotten, is the Tory Government of the day, wanted the UK to stay in the EU. They thought it was a no brainier. It was the working class of the North of England who pulled the rug from under the Tories. It is just unfortunate that we have this numpty Boris at the helm.

Sorry, I don’t agree with you that the EU is a better union. I would prefer we formed an economic union with the Commonwealth countries. They put the meals on our tables during WW2 at great human cost and suffering.

I do not mean this in any offensive way Tomi, but I live in Scotland. I am a big enough boy to know if I think the time is right to even talk about the issue of another referendum, when there are multiple deaths occurring as we sit here corresponding. If you are getting the impression that the majority of people in Scotland are focused on the issue of Independence, then Tomi my friend you are reading or hearing fake news. Trust me.

Thank you for your courteous response to my post.

Regards

Danny.

PS there may be a few typing errors in the above post. I have opted out of editing them because I had to write my long response to Jagz, twice. I must have done something wrong in the edit function.
