  1. Didn’t disagree with anything said in that piece. That’s what we, the Independence seekers need to highlight. Sometimes you can’t persuade somebody who disagree, but you can point it out

  2. “An English nationalist party”: indeed. Some people who should know better still refuse to acknowledge that there’s a world of difference between our Scottish inclusive, civic nationalism and English, exclusive ethnonationalism.

    One year on from those clips, nothing has got any better, has it? If anything, it’s even clearer that They want the hardest of hard Brexits – which will allow Them to scapegoat Johnny Foreigner for everything that’s gone wrong, impose all sorts of austerity and authoritarianism on the rest of society because the EU has been so unbelievably unreasonable in insisting that They stick to what They already agreed, and having the unspeakable gall to say No to Them, which no right-thinking, Tory-voting Englishperson could ever tolerate, of course…

    1. They seem to want this Brexit to be really hard. I can’t imagine why.

      Yes, they will blame the EU for intransigence, but you can’t take back control and share all the things we used to share with the EU.

      Disaster heads our way in January… and EU and Covid will get the blame.

    2. Hm. On mature reflection, which is the only kind I do these days, I realized I meant that some people who should know better don’t understand the difference, and other people disingenuously pretend not to although they know fine well.

  4. I don’t like Tories but have a pretty good opinion of the last governor of Hong Kong.
    Unlike the present bunch of mendacious chancers (as coined hy Chris Patten) he is an honourable man,despite serving in Thatcher’s government.
    As with Hitler and his Third Reich,or Stalin’s program of “reforms”,the only way these thugs can operate is by centralising power in as few hands as possible and ruthlessly suppressing dissent.
    Trouble ahead as they continue to dismantle democracy in pursuit of narrow ideological objectives.

    1. I wonder just how far they can push the English in their dismantling. I wonder if the shortages that are predicted will make them stop and wonder why, when they held all the cards, they managed to make such a terrible hand of it.

  5. Just some sad bitter old tories being sad and bitter about the fact that Boris has delivered more Nasty Party nastiness in 6 months than they managed in 10 years.

  6. The difference between Scottish nationalism and what other people mean by nationalism is that the brexit bunch, like trump and his mob and all their ilk worldwide, are ultranationists.
    There’s a massive, gaping chasm between the two and only one of those groups sics militarised police on protestors.

      1. Me too, and Nicola Sturgeon is right because she too agrees with me on that: “National” to “Nationalist” is just too mistakable for some and too tempting for others. It really is a shame that between civic nationalism and ethnonationalism, “nationalism” is a Janus word, a contronym, an auto-antonym.

        1. Goodness, who would have imagined that…

          I’ve already heard some of the ultra BritNats talking about the Scottish Nationalist Party…probably on purpose, although you never know with some of them.

    1. Good one, Niko, but I think you give your hard Tory Brexiteers too much credit: it was borderline tolerable when it was just onanistic Tory extremists fantasizing lubriciously about it in sordid gentlemen´s European Research Groups, but then They forced the rest of us non-consenting adults into playing their nasty, grubby and greedy little sadomasochistic role-playing game, making it non-consensual… at least in countries where they suffer from electile dysfunction, so to speak.

    2. How rude, Niko. It also paints a picture no one should have to see when they are having their elevenses (an important meal in Munguin’s day).

  8. No sign of the Buck House demo in the media.
    Sky are filling their site with the Primodos problem.
    They even bring out the maybot to say the government should compensate the families.
    Remind me that she was in ‘charge’ and spent 3 years on brexit, 3 years on deporting people, why didn’t she sort it out then along with all the other wee problems, well lesser problems than the englander nationalist party wanted to sort out.
    Yes the austerity package needed to be done.
    Bomb Syria.
    EVEL.
    Make us lots of promises that you never intended to keep
    More squirrels in the bag of rats, sorry rats, it’s beyond sense to compare you to the englander national party.
    Time to go our own way.

    1. I wonder why, where there is a demonstration outside Buckingham Palace against a member of the royal family, the Press seems to be uninterested!

  9. I no longer refer to the British or UK government. It’s the English government and Westminster is the English parliament (their PM called it that). I’ll now expand that to English Nationalist government.

    1. I was talking about that over on Terry’s site the other day.

      The way that devolution was done left the British parliament as the English parliament.

      White, to be fair to Blair, he was trying to stem off the Celtic nations’ worries that their needs were being ignored by London, he actually, in a way, made the situation worse.

      The truth is that since devolution, for most of the week, Westminster is the English parliament.

  10. Never mind, they have the collected might of Boke, Barking, Beaker and Belter (aka Gove, Galloway, Alexander and McConnell) to keep us in ‘our place’.

  11. One year on nothing has changed with the tories, except the microphones and cameras are on everything/anything else and the table is groaning with dead cats.
    Only Monday and I’m already in need of Soppy Sunday!

      1. Indeed I enjoyed the post tomorrow, says he writing today!
        The seal image is appreciated too. Fur seal?
        I had the oportunity to basically watch a colony of our common seal for four years. I was captivated by the complexity of their yearly cycle, humans could learn some important lessons from them.
