Everybody Has an Opinion

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Thursday March 16 2017

And you know what, they are entitled to their opinion.

But, here’s the thing, is their opinion based on fact, or as The Donald has said based on Fake News.

Shocking, I know, quoting Donald Trump, what is the world coming to.

Now my opinion and my position is that Scotland is a country, it’s not a region of the UK, but a country.

Now as a country many years ago we entered into a union with our neighbours, England, in fact the Acts of Union was in 1707.

So back to the region or country bit, I have been listening to people on the television news saying that we voted as a country to leave the EU and we should respect this vote.

Now if we were a region of the UK, that would be right, but we are not a region, we are a country and that country is Scotland.

Scotland voted overwhelmingly to stay with Europe and trade with Europe, it would be madness to close off our trading arrangements with the rest of Europe, but madness is what we have, where is King George?

Here’s the rub, it doesn’t matter what we voted, it doesn’t matter what we want because our wishes and votes are ignored.

We are not in a union of equals, the union is very unfair and punitive for the people of our country, Scotland.

We are being dragged along in the madness and rest assured it is madness and utter folly against our wishes.

The democratic will of the people of Scotland has been ignored, yet again.

Bit of a theme that, we exercise our democratic right to vote, cast our vote and don’t get what we voted for, now, to me, that’s not democracy.

Time to be brave, time to ignore the fake news, exercise our democratic right and vote for our country, not a region, I want to live in a country, to be proud to be of that country and be part of that country.

Back to the fake news and dare I say propaganda, the main stream news has an agenda and its agenda is not in Scotland’s best interest.

Paul Joseph Goebbels, a figure from our planets dark history was very good at misinforming a nation and that nation believed what he had to say.

Now, you may say that’s an extreme comparison with what we have happening today, but is it, we are being lied to about the real position.

Don’t believe the hype, do your research, check out both sides of the argument and once you do the only answer can be Yes.

Let’s be a nation again and not a region.
