Off to Caird Square 14


I am off to speak at the Independence rally in Caird Square, Dundee this afternoon. (Actually I am assuming it’s Caird Square, but doubtless I’ll find it when I get there). It is vital that, amid the demands and distractions of humdrum everyday politics, we keep the goal of Independence to the fore in the minds of the people. I was disappointed the SNP MPs and MSPs all boycotted the recent Hope Over Fear rally in George Square, and hope that they will have some presence today in Dundee.

I am always willing to speak at Independence meetings and events throughout Scotland. You can contact me through the button at the top of the page.

    Last I read you wanted to bypass the people and declare indpendence without a mandate?

    A referendum is not the only form of mandate. If I didn’t want Independence to have popular support, I would hardly be trudging all round the bloody country to all these meetings while not in the best of health!!

    Support for independence must not only be popular, but overwhelming and enduring. A nation can’t flip-flop on grave matters of sovereignty because of an indecisive minority of swinging voters.

    I can only assume the SNP don’t want to be seen associating with Tommy Sheridan, which is a pity, Tommy is fallible like the rest of us, but his heart is in the right place when it comes to independence.

    With interest I read that the Hope over Fear rally in George Square was a closed shop to the press, I’m not sure why that was the case.

    I’m sure Dundee a yes city, will welcome you with open arms. Don’t try to do too much Craig, remember your health comes first.

    Independence will undoubtedly come later.

    Seriously though, we’ve heard a lot about extremism recently, a nastier harsher atmosphere everywhere, more abuse and bother-boy behaviour, less friendliness and tolerance and respect for opponents.

    Alright, but what we never hear about extremism is it’s advantages!

    Well. The biggest advantage of extremism is that it makes you feel GOOD because it provides you with enemies.

    Let me explain. The great thing about having enemies is that you can pretend that all the badness in the whole world is in your enemies, and all the goodness in the whole world is in YOU. Attractive, isn’t it?

    So, if you have a lot of anger and resentment in you anyway and you therefore enjoy abusing people, then you can pretend that you’re only doing it because these enemies of yours are such very bad persons! And if it wasn’t for them, you’d actually be good natured, and courteous, and rational all the time. So, if you want to FEEL GOOD, become an extremist

    You can strut around, abusing people, and telling them you could eat them for breakfast and still think of yourself as a champion of the truth. A fighter for the greater good. And not the rather sad paranoid schizoid that you really are.

    Ah, fawlty towers,so deep and funny, the series which (after nearly being axed) restored Britain’s faith in itself, with the help of a little racism and Hun bashing, uuuh how extremist, I spilled my beans, fetch us a towel Manuel, pronto, must mean its a great philosophical base here for the referendum to come.

    I hope the rally went well and you got home alright.

    Looking from the pigs to the men, and from the men to the pigs:

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/georgeosborne/11911150/George-Osborne-poaches-former-Blair-ally-Lord-Adonis-to-head-infrastructure-commission.html

    In a significant blow for Jeremy Corbyn, the Chancellor will announce that Lord Adonis, the former Transport Secretary, is quitting his party to chair a new National Infrastructure Commission.

    ‘A significant blow’ is rather overstating the case: Adonis was chairman of Progress, the Blairite Labour thinktank which has consistently sniped at Corbyn. Adonis defects to the Tories with the full plans for Labour’s infrastructure policy (pre-Corbyn) in his pocket, but those will be past their sell-by now. If I were Corbyn, I’d be emailing all Adonis’s associates and asking them if they wanted to go too.
