The Scottish Vote really cannot be believed and it appears more-likely-than-not to have been rigged with at least EU influence. In Brussels, they are celebrating no doubt with drinks on the EU Commission after the great Scottish “NO” vote. The EU had “not even a plan A”, how to deal with an independent Scotland, Parliament President Martin Schulz told the press. Barroso, Van Rompuy, Rasmussen are reported as being very pleased with their victory in defeating Scottish Independence.
It appears that Scotland was presenting a risk to the entire European continent that there was just no way they could allow a “YES” vote to take place. This raised the stakes way too high for the EU not to be involved behind the scenes. As we reported, this was an uprising of the youth and now others are starting to confirm that was the driving force.
After all, Ephialtes of Trachis (Greek: Ἐφιάλτης, Ephialtēs; although Herodotus spelled it as Ἐπιάλτης, Epialtes) was the son of Eurydemus (Greek: Ευρυδήμος) of Malis. He betrayed his homeland to Xerxes the Persian King for money.He showed the Persian forces a path around the allied Greek position at the pass of Thermopylae, enabling them to win the Battle of Thermopylae in 480 BC. There was Judas and Christ and let us not forget the English supporters during the American Revolution whose assets would be confiscated for selling out their countrymen.
Now there are riots in Glasgow as unionists have been chasing down Scottish Independent Supporters and beating them. This is by no means ending nice. We will see hatred and resentment continue. Some are saying this is quickly devolving into the feud between the Catholics and Protestants – the age-old religious battle that led to the English Civil War and the beheading of King Charles I because he was Catholic as starters.
The English Civil War was centered on religion. Those feelings remain in Britain and have never died. At parties when the guard was down, comments would still be made against Catholics at parties I would attend after a few drinks in London. So what we have seen in Ireland is at the core of everything still in Britain. This separatist movement, that was really the youth wanting a revolution, is rapidly igniting the old religious battle not in the newspapers but behind the press it is increasingly being said that the Catholics were YES and the Protestants were NO. And you thought religion was only the issue in the Middle East. Welcome to really behind the curtain of civilization. Social media are filled with religious arguments.
The saying the king is dead, long live the king is a reflection how nothing changes. When the Puritans beheaded the king and pretended to be against monarchy, Oliver Cromwell did not take the title of “king” but still styled himself as king. The coins of Charles I wore a laurel wreath as did those of Cromwell – the man who would be king without calling himself king.
Napoleon crowned himself symbolizing he would not bow to some priest. It was Napoleon who confiscated the property of the Catholic Church and imprisoned the Pope.Religion has always been a key issue in Britain.
