Spiteful losers the lot (John Scholtz)

Are you thinking of joining Breakers and Wreckers United? Consider the jolly companions you would get, and then think again.
Just look at the pathetic bunch. Nigel Farage, Boris “the Clown” Johnson, Michael Gove, Ian Duncan Smith, “Gorgeous” George Galloway.

Spiteful losers, every one of them. The so-called Brexit camp, now with the backing of no-one else than Donald Trump and his new found pal, Vlad Putin.

    Both sides in this debate can point the finger at the defenders of in or out. It’s too important to be conducted at the level of playground fight or pub brawl. Both sides are guilty of scaremongering and speculation. The choice is about sovreignty. Who rules the UK, who makes the laws? The unelected commissioners of Brussels or our own national parliaments? The EU project is coming apart at the seams as member nations revert to self preservation as a result of the migrant and terrorism crisis. Scoff and rant all you like about Trump and the rise of the extreme parties in Europe but none of the commentariat seem to want to answer or even ask the question, why? Why are ordinary people choosing to listen to and support “extreme” parties and politicians. Could it be that they are sick of not being listened to, of being represented by an increasingly distant political and media class. The people whose schools are oversubscribed, whose health service is mired by the demands placed upon it and whose job prospects and housing needs are not being met are bound to react eventually. Even the quiescent people of the British Isles can reach the end of toleration and lash out in the only way open to them, through the ballot box.

    I don’t care who backs in or out. It’s petty nonsense to say “I don’t like him or her so I’m voting for the other side.” Simply pathetic in my view.
    I’m very realistic about leaving the EU.
    I know that the decision will most likely lead to a recession of some description. World markets may crash, again.
    My mortgage rate will quite likely rise about 1%-1.5%.
    My job may even be affected by a vote to leave.
    But, that said, I’m voting to leave.
    For me, it’s about democracy.
    What price do the pro-Euro people out on democracy.
    There’s no cost too much to protect the democratic freedom of our country.
    I don’t want to live in a country that can’t govern itself.
    I’m a democracy those in power are meant to be accountable to those they govern.
    The big question is this- How do we hold those in power in EU to account?
    Answer- We can’t.
    It’s that simple.

    Well Steven, would you prefer a country ruled by the elite, a political party which puts its self as the number priority, a party which caters for the minority at the cost the majority, an economic system where greed, profit and shareholders are the most important priority regardless to what harm this may do to the majority of people, a working system where your rights as an employee will be abolished and replaced with zero hour contracts, a working system where the minimum and living wage will be abolished, all state run services privatized, and where american companies will takeover, a system where more tax payers money will go on war, conflict and violence to prop-up the banking system, a system where morality and judgement is based solely on the human-made concept of money and nothing else, a system where our standards of living will be reduce to a level where you are nothing more than a slave to a system which puts itself first and last.

    and we call this democracy????????

    This is what we have to look forward to if we leave the EU

    with the Lib Dems voting with the SNP on Brexit, what does it say about the local MSPs attitude towards the fishermen who he claims to support and if Brexit is so bad how come there are so many job adverts in this weeks ST
