Scotland’s Future History 2022
U.K. Gov, after a disastrous response to the Covid19 pandemic, topping the death and long term impact charts, compounded with imposition of chaos from an ideological, ill prepared Brexit, filled U.K. media channels with scandal after scandal!
As confidence in U.K. Gov crumbled yet UK Tories upped the rhetoric (even on their “lightweight” colleagues from Scotland) how did our Scottish Gov respond?
The people returned the party formed to deliver Indy (SNP) at every election since 2014, so the peoples’ intention is clear!
So what intention did Scotland’s Parliamentarians both in Holyrood & Westminster show?
Many words were shared across media outlets but to what end? Scotland hasn’t voted for a Tory Gov for two generations so we’re already convinced that their interests are not in our interests.
So where was the strategic focus for using this culmination of anger at the state of a U.K. the 🌎 knows was broken? Was was focus to set a clear, compelling prospectus for our future: 🏴 determined by no one but the folk who live here?
You can’t demonstrate self determination by just reaction to those who oppose you!
To breath the necessary energy into the people of 🏴 (battered by political failure) needed decisive action to empower them and bring everyone to the table to shape a vision that will see 🏴 thrive for us all!
That takes self confidence, determination & intent. Scot Gov were empowered to lead 🏴 by example!
The independence ball ⚽️ they ducked & dived to avoid for 7 years, when they happy to keep their power in the backroom, harrumphing while cutting half time🍊, was now firmly in their field of play: would they play it?
When we look back on 2022, will it be the turning point in 🏴 finally securing our independence 🏆 or will Scot Gov fail to capture the nation’s sense of urgency and desire for real change and miss a politically strategic opportunity sitter in front of an open 🥅 while cutting 🍊
