The true face of politics

The Scottish Referendum shows the true face of politics. The
Conservative Party's lieutenants in Scotland are Alistair Darling and
Brown. Hardly the dynamic duo, their campaigning consists of empty
threats and insincere promises. The fact that the Labour Traitors spend
night and day working for the Conservatives tells you all you need to
know about them.

Empty threats - the bullsh*t over the currency is a classic case. If you
vote the wrong way we will punish you by taking away our pound. A
schoolyard threat - if I lose the game I'm taking home my ball. The day
after Scottish independence the English government will have to deal
with the reality of an independent Scotland and the obvious fact that no
country wants to discourage the use of its currency or indeed has any
power to stop it.

And as for the last minute panic attempt to get the supermarkets to
raise prices if the Scots dare to vote against Cameron and crew; it was
immediately torpedoed by Tescos who will of course do no such thing.
Supermarkets spend billions to convince people their prices are the
lowest. Does Cameron know the first thing about capitalism? Surely if
Asda say "We'll punish you Scots" Scots will say "we're off to the Co-op
ye Tory bastards!"

The empty promises are as much use as Nick Clegg's solemn vow to get rid
of tuition fees, or Obama's pledge to close Guantanamo bay. As Mary
Poppins put it, "That's a pie crust promise, easily made and easily broken."

And this campaign also shows the real role of the banks and big
business. We have party political broadcasts by bankers telling the
Scots to vote as the Tories tell them or else.

I do not have a vote in this referendum. If the No campaign wins it will
be a victory for the bankers and a victory for the politics of
intimidation. The Tories backed Lithuania when it wanted to break away
from Russia. The Tories backed Estonia when it wanted to break away from
Russia. The Tories backed Latvia when it wanted to break away from
Russia. They are hypocrites and liars.

All power to the Yes campaign. #hopenotfear
