Scottish Referendum loses and England wins! – Tola Adenle

September 19, 2014


Cunning, old England that has thrived through the ages building the largest empire the world has ever known by thwarting people’s will, using divisive means that ensure never-to-heal deep wounds even after “independence” granted will forever remain, reaping tons where she sowed ounces  in far-off lands from her tiny island home wins – again.

No, Scotland is not a star-crossed African country or India from where the jewels shine brightly in the crowns of England come, but one of her cousins from the tribes of Europe.

Poor Katharine (my dear friend), poor Sean Connery, poor Scots, England had nothing, or at most, not much to lose we were told but the screw was on.  Massive campaigns, including baits of devolution of powers and even “nationalistic” lines like remaining Scottish while remaining within the union, ensured that people who were sure they would vote ‘yes’ certainly became “confused, and no more certain” as an old man told a reporter.

No, England had more to lose if the ‘yes’ votes had won but even before the first vote was counted, England was already at her old game once ‘no’ seemed to be gaining ground in the opinion polls:  how do we hold back as many promised powers to be devolved to the Scots?  And blames  were being thrown at Cameron for promising so much and so,the seeds of success for an independent Scotland were doomed.

Rule Brittania – to some extent – continues, using the same old tactics to hold on to what is left of a once all-powerful empire.

    Dear auntie,
    The votes are still being counted as at about 5 minutes ago. Why did you declare victory
    for the ”Nos”? Could it be that the remaining votes from the LGAs are inconsequential?
    A people deserve what they get through the Law of Attraction of Homogeneous Species.

    Best wishes

      Dear Prof.,

      MOST of the votes had been counted before I did so, and I was also following the lead of English papers.
