George Robertson Goes Fucking Mental

George (‘Lord’ to the likes of youse) Robertson – always one of the most unpleasant and arrogant of Labour pols – seems keen to win the Planet Fear award for Most Ridiculous and Overblown Comment of the campaign. He even used the word ‘cataclysmic’! Not to mention the phrase ‘forces of darkness’, and without irony at that.

A great deal of it is worth quoting:

who would cheer loudest on the 19th of September … if four million Scottish voters decided, say not only but decisively, to break the United Kingdom in two?

Not the nearly half of the Scottish population who might oppose separation. Not the English who would find themselves in a country that is minus a third of its landmass, without 10 percent of its GNP, and losing five million of its population. And this would be for them a very diminished country whose global position would be open to question. Not the Northern Irish who would see a reappearance of old demons. Nor the Welsh whose desire for more devolution inside the continuing United Kingdom is still is still increasing.

The loudest cheers for the breakup of Britain would be from our adversaries and from our enemies. For the second military power in the West to shatter this year would be cataclysmic in geopolitical terms.

If the United Kingdom was to face a split at this of all times and find itself embroiled for several years in a torrid, complex, difficult and debilitating divorce, it would rob the West of a serious partner just when solidity and cool nerves are going to be vital.

Nobody should underestimate the effect all of that would have on existing global balances and the forces of darkness would simply love it.

 

I haven’t seen video of the speech, but it is best imagined as being delivered with a trail of spittle running down his potato-like chin.

Robertson long ago went native – seduced and flattered by the attentions of the big boys in Europe, the USA¬†and Nato as he is chauffeured from one embassy reception to another. He does not represent me or any other Scottish voter – he represents the international elite and those who think they know better than us what is best for us. That’s why he is more interested in the ‘geostrategic consequences’ of independence than what it will mean to the people of a country fed up with the status quo – a status quo which has done him very nicely indeed. THE FAT FUCK!

Fat Geordie isn’t the first from Project Fear to suggest that our independence might lead to a reprise of the Great War, but let’s hear it from the Hamilton Boy:

I contend that it is far from scaremongering to use the term Balkanization to predict what might happen if Scotland were to break from its 300 year old union. The fragmentation of Europe starting on the centenary of the First World War would be both an irony and a tragedy with incalculable consequences.

Jeez. And there’s more:

So what possible justification should there be for breaking up the United Kingdom? What could possibly justify giving the dictators, the persecutors, the oppressors, the annexers, the aggressors and the adventurers across the planet the biggest pre-Christmas present of their lives by tearing the United Kingdom apart?

Well George, you would have no idea what justification we, the people of Scotland would have for anything. You have no idea.
