Yesterday’s Commons debate merely confirmed what all Yes voters knew already: the annoyance of the Scottish referendum is now over and we can be ignored again. You can gauge how important Scotland is to the denizens of the Palace of Westminster, by the amount of time given to our representatives. If Wings over Scotland is to be believed, and I have no reason to doubt that august e-publication, then we have taken up six minutes of our Britannic overlords’ time. So, even when we are able to argue against the unexpurgated mendacity of our rulers, they still have ways of silencing us or ignoring us. I noted that Unionist MPs were treated with a modicum of respect, whereas any utterance which seemed to be critical of the union was shouted down. I was not surprised.
Democracy is in danger, when the people believe that they are no longer being served by those whose job is supposed to be that of shining lights into dark corners and lifting stones that our masters would like to remain untouched. As it stands, at least 45% of us no longer believe anything that is said by the media, with one honourable, Sunday based exception. Beyond that, others are beginning to realise that they have been deceived. Our hope lies in their awakening. Our future depends on their growing anger. Our freedom must be assured by their unsettled will.
But how do we contact them? How do we befriend them? How do we persuade them to walk with us? The mainstream media stands between us and them: an implacable foe who will brook no interference. Like the Germans with the Maginot Line, attack is pointless. Like the Allies in 1944, faced with the same problem, sometimes leaving the enemy in their entrenched positions is the best solution. I, Field Marshal Gedboy, will now explain the first part of a two pronged assault. There are 1.6 million of us who can speak to those who took the wrong side – for an understandable reason. They were lied to. There are 1.6 million of us who constitute a mighty army – and we have refused to demobilize.
We cannot be stopped, pushed aside or suborned. Our weapons are our voices and they can never be taken from us. The mainstream media know this. The Daily Record has just suffered a 14.1% fall in its sales. This is the first intelligence report on the Unionist media’s death by a thousand cuts. A printed lie can be crushed by millions of calm conversations delivered by regiments of truth bearers. We are more powerful than anything Westminster and its stooges can range against us. It’s good to talk.
