I’ve lost track of the number of pseudo-intellectual treatises we’ve had about how the Union can be saved by giving the Jocks a better deal.
Leaving aside the amnesia about 2014 and just how stupid we’d be to get fooled again, these apparently intelligent people don’t seem to see that it’s not and never was a union. At best it was a hostile takeover, under threat and, to this day, it’s an abusive marriage where many in their elites hold us in open or barely contained contempt. A few minutes in a Commons debate would surely dispel any misunderstanding.
And that picture above? The chain? The padlock? What kind of union requires a chain and padlock?
I know, it’s an old image but the FT chose it. It doesn’t strike them in any way.
They don’t get it but these days most of us do.
