If you are still undecided about Scotland becoming an independent country, you really need to watch this video.
Please, watch it.
Even if you live outside of the UK, it’s fascinating to discover the social changes going on in Scotland right now. People in Scotland are waking up to the reality that they have no voice, no impact, and very little powers to improve their life in Scotland. We’ve been lied to, manipulated and our natural resources have been making a select few people very rich, meanwhile many people in Scotland and the rest of the UK live in ridiculous poverty.
Whatever you do, research and study the subject of Scottish independence properly. Do not just watch the BBC news (they are pro-union bias) and forget about reading the newspapers for the truth. It has been proven time and time again that the mainstream media is corrupt and bias. They report what suits their own agenda. There is only one newspaper in the UK that actually reflects truth and a more balanced, less fear driven debate – check out the Sunday Herald.
In this latest video, Tommy Sheridan speaks (or rants?) to Scottish people about why we need to grab this amazing, once in a lifetime opportunity. There are many, many more videos on You Tube. Please take the time to listen to the debates going on and make an informed choice.
If you wish to live in a democratic country with powers to make positive changes for the very people who actually live here, if you wish to have a voice, for your vote to actually count and to be represented, you have to vote yes this September. Or you can choose to be represented by right-wing neoliberalism politics. You can choose self-determination or you can continue to allow public school boys – the old boys club – to run your country forever more? Privileged leaders are not the answer to the economic inequality in modern day Britain, considering that these neoliberalists promote capitalism no matter what happens to the common man on the street.
No thanks – I’d rather run my own country. I’ve seen enough of your management.
If it is a no majority, we will have been the only nation in history to be too scared to take independence. The ‘vote no’ fear campaign is about to go into over drive. Westminster are desperate to hang on to Scotland, they need our resources. The governments have had over 30 years to fairly distribute the wealth all over the UK. They haven’t, as ever, the rich have got richer – the poor have got poorer. The Scottish people have (hopefully) had enough of this deliberate mismanagement, the lies and the corruption.
If Scotland is really, ‘Better Together’ within the UK, please can you explain to us yes voters why so little has been done to improve the quality of life in Scotland? Why have so many towns all over Scotland been left to fester? Can you explain to us what is fair and rewarding about this union? Personally, this union is not working for the people of Scotland. It works for the bankers in London, but not for me or other normal Scottish people. How can we be ‘Better Together’ with Food Banks growing by the day?
Let’s stop London pissing all our oil away and use the wealth to improve life for people.
You messed up Westminster, you got greedy, you sold all our assets, you didn’t even bother to set up an oil fund, and now you’re desperately trying to convince Scotland that you love us, but the reality is – you need us to help you pay back the massive debts. You can’t even be honest about that.
Sorry UK government, we’ve waited and waited like a helpless wife waiting on her drunken, spend-crazy husband returning from yet another night at the casino. Hoping things would improve and he’d notice the rot setting in, make changes and start to care. Sometimes we need to say, ‘enough! I’m tried of your lies, your promises, your deceit. It’s so over!’
You’ve told us for years that we are too small, too stupid, too wee. You’ve done everything to hurt our confidence and slow our progress.
Sure it’s a little bit scary, standing on our own feet, but you know what is even scarier – handing over our opportunities, our public services, our powers to a government in London, who quite frankly only think about Scottish people when they really have to. You use us for our natural resources and treat us with contempt. It’s not acceptable.
I’d rather be a bit scared but have the ability and self-determination to improve my life, rather than have restrictions on how I can move forward and make positive changes.
As Nelson Mandela said so beautifully,
Below sums up why we simply must vote yes, I found it being passed around on Facebook and couldn’t resist sharing. If anyone knows who wrote these words please do let me know so I can credit the person. Thank you.
HOW DARE YOU SCOTLAND!
How dare you want to be governed by the Party you voted for.
How dare you expect to use your own oil wealth to improve your own country.
How dare you complain about the doubling of number of Scottish people in poverty during the eighties.

How dare you complain about having the lowest minimum wage in Europe.
How dare you complain about spending 27% of your income on childcare. Who cares if in Sweden they only spend 5%! And don’t you dare mention that they are a small northern European country of around 9 million people!
How dare you complain about having the least generous pensions in Europe. They’re only pensioners after all!
How dare you complain that in some parts of Glasgow some men don’t live as long as they do in Iraq or Afghanistan.
How dare you show a more progressive attitude to Immigrants when the rest of the UK is allowing UKIP to gain power.

How dare you complain about our children polling as the least happy in the developed world.
How dare you complain about having to subsidise a high speed rail link in the South East at a cost of £4 billion pounds when this will do nothing for Scotland.
How dare you complain about Trident and its huge running costs. Why would you want to spend that money on your infrastructure for heaven’s sake!
How dare you complain about being the 3rd most unequal State in the developed world.
How dare you object to the brutal and barbaric foreign policy of the UK.
How dare you complain about a 400% rise in food-banks since the Coalition came to power.
How dare you ask for clarity and evidence when the NO campaign claim Scotland is better off as part of the UK.
YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO TELL EACH OTHER “WE COULDN’T DO IT!”
HOW DARE YOU REACH FOR THE STARS!
