Who Are the Britons?

Whats been happening in Scotland for those who don’t know

kiradax:

Scotland has been building up to voting on whether they should become Independent from the United Kingdom since 2012, the Idea’s been in the works since the ’50s. Yes voters want to be independent, No voters want to stay in the UK.

The parties backing Yes are the snp, the greens and the socialists, the parties backing No (also known as better together or no thanks) are the tories, labour, lib dems aka the big 3 of shittery

reasons scotland would want independence

  • our votes literally don’t count seriously like in a mentaphor you guys would understand it would be as though our entire country voted democrat but the republicans still got into government because the uk is heavily imbalanced
  • literally the population of the whole of scotland = the population of london.
  • don’t want to be a part of illegal wars
  • the maj. of scotland has a socialist sentiment so you could argue we don’t want to be associated w the capitalist uk
  • england has been storing their nuclear weapons here for years, making us a target for attack, because they dont care about scottish lives
  • basically used scotland as lab rats for taxes and shitty policies so england didnt suffer
  • we have free tuition which the english govt want to take away
  • we have free healthcare but westminster wants to privatise it which will badly affect scotland as the poorest nation

during the run up to the independence referendum, (referred to as #indyref for shorthand, &please use the indyref tag to talk abt these issues) the yes campaign released hugely detailed plans for an Independent Scotland, the no side produced nothing but scaremongering and outright lies about mysterious ‘new powers’ scotland would get if we stayed in the uk.

There were huge debates which took ages and i cba hashing out again but basically Yes had a more vocal support.

on the 18th sept we all voted and last night/this morning the results came in as an overwhelming result for No. this is bad as it means scotland is stuck in the racist, imperialist uk which supports illegal wars and looks like it’s going to be run by fascists by the next general election. here’s what happened in the horus following this morning;s announcement

i don’t know much more yet because this is the first day since the vote + i had no sleep after watching the results till 7am so i’ll be periodically reblogging more stuff as it unfolds. followers in west lothian and glasgow keep safe and maybe hide or obscure your yes flags/stickers to keep yourself safe

basically a lot of uncertainty, people have been literally stabbed and businesses burned down. keep an eye on the indyref and scotland tags + my blog if you want to know the latest. scotland’s time zone is UTC+0.

i’m going back to the start: [3/] pilot episodes ★ new girl
↳ “So, you know in horror movies when the girl’s like, ‘Oh, my God, there’s something in the basement! Let me just run down there in my underwear and see what’s going on, in the dark!’ And you’re like, ‘What is your problem?! Call the police!’ And she’s like, ‘Okay!’ but it’s too late, because she’s already getting murdered? Well, uh… my story’s kind of like that.”

So I really love how the intro to Pacific Rim is, like, 90% plausible/whatever for the first two minutes. Massive tragedy in San Francisco, media and cultural response, blah blah blah

Then, completely straight-up, “So that’s when we decided to make giant robots.”

When life hands you lemons

you make giant robots
