Bella Caledonia offers a fine example of the kind of half-arsed, self-righteous drivel we get from the cliques who have adopted ‘independence’ as a useful marketing device for their own narrow political agendas. The entire article boils down to nothing more than a dreary manifesto for a rerun of the 2014 Yes campaign. Some of us remember how that obsession with happy-clappy, hug-a-BritNat ‘positive’ campaigning turned out. Some of us have learned the lessons of the 2014 campaign and stand ready to apply them.
In the 2014 campaign we took a pillow to a sword fight largely because the Yes campaign pandered so completely to those who are ever content to settle for defeat with honour in preference to the responsibilities of success..
In the new campaign we must go in at least as hard against the Union as Better Together / Project Fear previously did against independence. At minimum, that means avoiding the fatal mistake of letting the constitutional issue be obscured by a fog of policy options. At best it will mean relegating the interminable, circumlocutious, jargon-heavy policy debates so beloved of cappuccino-sipping righteous radicals to the background music of a campaign that focuses first, foremost and always on the actual and only issue that will be decided by the referendum.
It is obvious idiocy to give the debate about being independent precedence over the now extremely urgent task of becoming independent. Our immediate and overriding priority is to #DissolveTheUnion. Until that is done, all the rest is just wind and pish.
