END the PRETENCE: THE UNION of ENGLAND and SCOTLAND is OVER

[Daily Telegraph-Wednesday, November 14, 2007]

Pity for a moment , the most interesting man in the world, Alistair Darling. last Friday he had an impossible mission, and I apologise in advance for teasing HIM about IT.

The Chancellor of the Exchequer went to Stirling University in his - and much of the Government' - native Scotland to celebrate its 40th anniversary.

His mission, however impossible, was simple: to say to his fellow SCOTS that, at a time when the Scottish National Party is using its mandate to press ever more strongly the case for

INDEPENDENCE.

they were better off staying in the

UNION.

He is of course, right.

At least 11 billion

of English money heads for Edinburgh each year, the better to soak the Scots in their dependent relative status.

My revered colleague Alan Cochrane wrote, entirely speciously, on this page three weeks ago why he thought the

ENGLISH SHOULD MIND.

His argument was that the affluent parts of ENGLAND subsidise the ENGLISH REGIONS as part of a national scheme, so why (given that we have a UNION) should not this subsidy extend to

SCOTLAND?

As you will have appreciated,

THE ANSWER IS OBVIOUS

WE ENGLISH have a conception of our nation AS ACUTE as the SCOTS now have of THEIRS.

Scotland has signified it does NOT WANT English meddling in its domestic matters., as is its right: so much for the UNION.

The English regions, by contrast, are an integral part of the

ENGLISH NATION.

Short of balkanising

ENGLAND

-something Labour has been keen to do, with its failed plans for

REGIONAL ASSEMBLIES

-that will remain so: and English people will , therefore, always have a claim on English money that is infinitely more legitimate than any Scots can make on it.

It was against this troublesome backdrop that Mr Darling went to Stirling. Labour is desperate

NOT TO LOSE

 40 of Scotland's 50 MP's

Bang would go its working majority at Westminster and the job, salaries and perks of the

SCOTTISH RAJ

-that rules

ENGLAND.

YOU SEE THE PROBLEM, DON'T YOU?

So Mr Darling laid it on with the proverbial trowel. he boasted that

SCOTLAND

has the highest income per head of anywhere outside

LONDON and the SOUTH-EAST.

He said that in 2010 Scots would have

35 BILLION

-a year to spend as they wished, thanks to Labour's generosity.

Addressing his specific audience, he said that Scotland wins more than its share, given its population, of university research funding.

If all this is true -and we know how ministers bend statistics -then the porkometer is off the scale.

YET HEREIN LIES THE DIFFICULTY

Every time Mr Darling, or any other member of the Raj, brags about the largesse Scotland gets from LONDON, the ENGLISH get ANGRIER and ANGRIER.

Look at a story in this newspaper yesterday, if you seek a cause of this

RAGE.

Eleven drugs available on the NHS prescription in Scotland, treating such awful conditions as

LUNG CANCER

BRAIN TUMOURS

BONE and BONE MARROW CANCER

and ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE

are denied to NHS patients

in

ENGLAND.

Now , it might reasonably be supposed (and indeed many in England do suppose it) that if

11 Billion

of their money were not going to Edinburgh, there might just be a few bawbees available for such unimportant things as alleviating the

SUFFERING OF THE ENGLISH SICK.

I know it is bad taste to point this out, but let that

NOT STOP US.

"Mr Brown and the rest of the Raj are illegitimate in the eyes of many English"

Mr Brown, in his squalid and anti-democratic way, has since the first devolved parliament in 1999 firmly resisted any suggestion that

THE WEST LOTHIAN QUESTION

NEEDS AN ANSWER.

He sees no reason why Scottish MPs (and indeed Welsh ones -labour has 29 of them) at Westminster should not be allowed to continue to vote on matters that affect

THE ENGLISH.

Since the Welsh Assembly has recently received a new tranche of powers, expanding its areas of competence, this means that at Westminster Labour technically deploy

69 MPS

to vote on questions

THAT DO NOT AFFECT THEIR CONSTITUENTS-ONE JOT

-but which

CAN CHANGE THE COURSE OF LAW IN ENGLAND.

*

 

[That is WHY the EDP have constantly stated that a separate Referendum on the EU QUESTION should be held in EACH nation state in our island home.]

*

That Mr Brown blithely affects to be unmoved by this outrage causes one to question not merely his intelligence - but his sanity.

Back in the 1950's, in the two or three years before Suez, there was a strong constituency in the Tory party that blathered on about the need to maintain the British Empire: the Suez Group was the main focus of this. They were absurd, because the empire had ceased to exist in 1947 when India went. Once the jewel in the crown was lost, the rest of the structure would fall apart inevitably.

SO IT IS NOW WITH SOME IN THE LABOUR PARTY

THE UNION IS OVER

-morally at least.

When SCOTLAND voted for DEVOLUTION in 1997 the UNION fell into a COMA

When Alex Salmond's SNP administration was elected in May 2007 -the last rites were read, and the final process of sundering got under way. All that remains is for the Scots, in a referendum to vote to stick the coffin in the grave, with the UNION FLAG

still on it, and pile on the earth.

This is the last thing Mr Brown and the rest of the Raj want.

Because of Scottish separation they are already illegitimate in the eyes of many ENGLISH which is why they bang on with such dishonesty and vulgarity about

"BRITISHNESS"

If SCOTLAND became INDEPENDENT, Labours chances of ever ruling the key country of the UNION

-ENGLAND

-would vanish.

Mr Brown and his fellow nabobs would either have to take

ENGLISH CITIZENSHIP

-and find English seats, if they wished to have a political career in a big, serious country, or they would have to settle for running Scotland.

Oddly enough, they have hither to shown a remarkable lack of keenness to do that.

[Possibly because the powers that be in Scotland have no time for that traitorous bunch of pompous time servers and interfering busybodies -for a start.]

It is a horrible thing for Labour to admit, but thanks solely to its actions and initiatives

BRITAIN IS NO MORE A TERM OF GEOGRAPHY THAN OF POLITICS

 

TO BE CONTINUED

 

LAST PARAGRAPH:

 

Indeed the honest position for the Tories - learning from the horrors contingent upon the rejection of Gladstone's

HOME RULE BILL in 1881

that gave us 120 years of misery with Ireland -is that if a part of the KINGDOM wishes to go its own way then nothing should be done to stop it

I WOULD GO FURTHER

I feel England and Scotland will only ever b happy together if they are politically apart. I am sure from the Scots point of view INDEPENDENCE would be a mistake -the Luxembourg of the north they are not - but grown-ups must be allowed to make their own mistakes. For the moment, the Tories should take the lead and announce that, as far as they are concerned

THE UNION-LIKE THE EMPIRE

-IS OVER.

*          *          *

[ As  a great many Tory MPs as well as Labour MPs together with the Lib-Dems are EU fanatics they are still determined to see that ENGLAND does NOT EXIST as an INDEPENDENT NATION STATE. They will vote for the NEW EU TREATY because that is what is in front of their eyes and they can sense the extra goodies which will come their way. Matters about ENGLISH FREEDOM mean nothing to them and when they have the TREATY they will enforce the EU REGIONS and as the English people have only recently woken out of their accustomed stupor, it is possible, that they will as our greatest war-time prime minister stated be

TOO LATE!

-and they will deserve what is in store for them.]
