Remain or Leave? Things To Consider …

Euro MapI’ve kept out of this argument until now, but I thought I’d better speak out as it looks as if it is possible the Leave supporters might actually win. If you are a Leave supporter, please don’t allow that to stop you reading. Don’t you want an opinion from an pensioner who has worked in various industries, run businesses both successfully and with failures, and now relies on a pension? I hope I’m going to give you a different perspective, why not, at least, give me a hearing.

Firstly I think we all ought to consider what we are about to throw away. The European Union, or whatever you want to call it, is an experiment to try to ensure a good trading environment and the ability for people to move freely through a large area of the world.

Only A Fool Ignores Rational Argument – It Is Sad There Are So Many Of Them!

So Eire has chosen to allow gay couples to marry.

Being brought up in the fifties and sixties I had always considered marriage to be a union between male and female. I had felt that while two females or two males should be able to have equal opportunities as a couple, equal rights as a couple and equal status as a couple, somehow the word ‘marriage’ did not apply. Perhaps, I wondered, should there be three different partnerships, marriage for MF, another word for MM and a third for FF? I didn’t know what those words might be.

The Caring Face Of Britain – I Don’t Think!

It has started. David Cameron has had an overall majority for five days and we are already pumping out the warning signs of Tory lack of compassion. This time it is African and middle-eastern refugees.

Can you imagine for a moment what it would be like to be one of those poor people risking your life and that of your family to get across the Mediterranean to the safety of Europe. An escape from countries which Britain and the west have turned into civil disaster zones.

Have They All Gone Mad? We’re Living In A Hovel!

I want to introduce a concept to you. Imagine the country is your home. It is made up of the bricks and mortar, the roof, the inner walls and windows. It includes certain essential living items like a cooker, central heating, fridge, carpets, beds, furniture and within that we place our luxuries such as televisions, stereo system, food mixers, microwave, cutlery, glasses, wine, food, overseas holidays, new cars, dining out etc.

This is, of course, extremely simplified, but I just want you to consider a relatively simple analogy.

The End Is Nigh!

If there are still NO supporters who don’t believe the lies and deceit Westminster is pumping out about Scottish independence then I hope they will read this item. I appeal to them to do so before they cast their vote in the wrong direction on Thursday.

Scotland has been cheated for the last forty years and a vote for NO means we will continue to be cheated for the next fifty years.

Think about it. Beware of rhetoric. Read, read, read all you can on the subject. Not the threats of what Independence will destroy, but the awful risks we are taking by continuing to trust the union. Don’t be fooled by Cameron’s crocodile tears. He is in fear of his job as the prime minister who lost the Scottish cash cow! A black gold Aberdeen Angus!

Here it is.

Scots Lead Puts The Fear Of God Into Osbourne & The Tories

The latest poll shows YES ahead by a couple of points and what happens?

Immediately we see panic among the NO campaigners and the chancellor, this morning, says they will now be publishing a package of new devolved powers. If this was a serious offer it should have been made before postal votes, like mine, were sent in. It is obviously a panic measure because it hasn’t been published until sometime next week.

This shows exactly how serious the government is to seriously consider extra devolved powers. Now we await their concocted new measures. More fool anyone who believes them.

Of course it is only one poll, but it certainly seems to have put real fear into the Tories. They can see all the resources Westminster has previously exploited slipping away from them and their greedy business partners. Here’s the poll report.
