Well quite a weekend and an eventful Monday.
First we had Nicola admitting that with only entry to the single market then an independence referendum would be off the Table.( not what the Scottish people voted for in the EU referendum) Then we had a press in a fit of apoplexy attempting to sway the meaning of exactly what Theresa May said in the context of a “hard Brexit”. If you look at the interview you will see that she did not say that., In fact she left the door open but she had to say something after Nicola put a brave front on to a dogs breakfast on the Andrew Mar show in a spectacular breast beating display in order to try to gain some of the ground lost a day earlier by admitting that entry to the single market would mean no referendum.
So at that point we had Nicola threatening another referendum if the Uk government chose to commit suicide by not joining the single market and we had Nicola stating quite clearly that the general direction Scotland was moving in, was independence. Well Nicola can I just say that if my intention was to drive from Dundee to Perth, then I would drive ” in the general direction of Inverness “but that does not mean that I have any intention of going there.
We had the press putting a completely false interpretation on what Theresa said in the context of Brexit and causing quite a stir.
Now this might be becoming a wee bit complicated but if you look at the blog I did at the weekend and the two previous blogs I attached you will see that I predicted exactly this mess that was unfolding and you will notice that the two previous blogs were posted the day before the Scottish governments paper on Brexit ,and the day after.
So now to this Morning , first thing that happened was that I was woken from by much needed beauty sleep by Theresa, who was not in the least amused as she had been up all night reading my blogs ( with the assistance of her gormless husband who was helping her with the big words). ” Bob , you are an Ass hole , do you realise that the value of the already very low pound has dropped another 1% because you just told everybody that the UK government were about to commit the worst act of suicide in history by failing to remain in the single Market and we haven’t even had time to write the suicide note yet”. “OH, I said , I hadn’t realised that but that was not exactly what I said , no what I said was that the SNP were basing their strategy, on the UK committing suicide, but I do not think that will happen, because although I do actually think you are stupid ,I do not think you are quite as stupid as that, and you will keep the single market and by doing so and by the good grace of Nicola you will get a bonus of keeping Scotland in your grubby little hands”
The result was that good old Theresa then called a press conference where she made this statement and I will put it in bold writing so that all the myopic Sheeple who keep calling me unpleasant names will be able to see it.
“I’m tempted to say that the people who are getting it wrong are those who print things saying ‘I’m talking about a hard Brexit, (that) it is absolutely inevitable there’s a hard Brexit’,” she said.
“I don’t accept the terms hard and soft Brexit. What we’re doing is going to get an ambitious, good and best possible deal for the United Kingdom in terms of… trading with and operating within the single European market.”
So there you are, as I said the SNP have been painting themselves into a corner.
To make matters worse Nicola made a statement saying that there is no chance of a referendum this year., I shake my head in wonder at the naivety of this . It is like the commander of an army telling his opponent that he has no plans to attack him for a year.
Yes indeed , we have been given a road map to unionism , independence is disappearing over the horizon and we will await the new dawn.
