Dave Upstages Salmond’s Big Day

Events are being held today to mark the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn, fought on 23 and 24 June, 1314. Clans are coming from far and wide for the main event, a recreation of the battle taking place just outside Stirling, where around 300 spear-wielding warriors will battle it out. According to the Beeb:

“Visitors will be able to explore a war camp complete with a kitchen, blacksmith and a hospital, as well as see weaponry including 12ft spears used to fend off cavalry charges up-close.”

Alex Salmond probably thinks the festivities are a pretty shrewd move in referendum year, but will he still be smirking in a few days time when the Prime Minister arrives to celebrate Stirling Armed Forces Day? Dave is bringing with him hundreds of real soldiers and pipers, while the Red Arrows have been brought in to colour the sky red, white and blue, just in case the message wasn’t subtle enough. Still too chicken to debate the First Minister though…

    Call Me Dave is useless and the common conclusion is that, look at what the Poles have said about him!

    If he had any balls (sic) he would go to the country now and call a referndum on the EU. WE would say OUT! He would romp the next election with a massive Tory majority and could then go on to be classed as a great PM not unlike Mrs Thatcher.

    If he doesn’t do this he will be slaughtered from now till the Election Day where he will be beaten by Millimong and Farage whereupon the Tories will be a busted flush like the Conservatives in Canada became when they ignored the Reform Party.

    Devolution was meant to put Independence to bed, but Labour screwed up and the SNP got a Holyrood majority. The SNP were not expecting it and consequently are having to make it up as the go along, for example the actual cost of seperation

    The YES campaign in Scotland just need to bang on, day in day out, between now and September, that an independent Scotland will never have to suffer rule by a Tory government from London (Thatcher 80s,Cameron today) that a majority of Scots didn’t vote for and they’ll win the referendum with a landslide.

    The NO camp can’t promise no more Tory rule for Scotland, only the YES to independence camp can.

    Freeeeeedom!

    Having watched fuckwit on the News late last night, his keepers have shifted the rules of the game so that Dickhead looks to have won (but will actually lose).
    Thus, the aim is now not to get Junker removed but to have his appointment voted upon by the MEPs. Due to the imbedded majorities this will confirm Junker but it “appears” that bumsex Dave actually “won” the point that Junker’s appointment should go to the Euro-Parliament.
    Does he think we are stupid? Clearly!

    you’re not the first to have suggested this. If England residents had been given a vote, I’m sure a Yes movement would soon have sprung spring up here , backed by the many millions of English people tired of subsidising the relatively small number of wingeing Scots who choose to remain in Scotland (a hugely greater number remain abroad). Salmond, Cameron et al must surely be aware of this!

Other Unionists will never ever forgive him for the “loss” of Scotland and they will not vote him back into high office. My prediction is that they will reach for the reassurance of a Labour government, while Scotland seeks to rediscover its small-state liberal (and not Lib Dem) social and economic heritage.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
