Has Obama Sealed Victory For Alex Salmond’s Scottish Independence Campaign

Onward tae your gory bed, Or tae victorie!* (Picture source)

With characteristic dickheadishness, fuckwittery and a natural talent for inappropriate behaviour, the former rent boy, now President of the Entire Universe and Everything Else Besides, Barack Hussein Obama made entirely inappropriate use of the D Day commemorative ceremony to launch yet another hopelessly inept attempt to meddle in the affairs of other nations.

from The Daily Telegraph:

Barack Obama has urged Scotland to reject independence, saying the United Kingdom is better off remaining together.
Britain works “pretty well” as a “united” nation, the US President said, in major intervention in the debate over the future of Scotland.

The President reiterated his call for Britain to remain in the European Union. The commemoration of D-Day shows Europe depends on Britain for its prosperity, and the UK will lose out if it excluded, the President said.

The British people will make the “right decision” in an in-out referendum, he said.

Alex Salmond said Scotland wanted its independence like the US, borrowing the President’s 2008 election slogan to say: “Yes, we can.”

Mr Obama’s comments were entirely out of place at the memorial ceremony, but when has consideration for his hosts ever got in the way of Obama’s ego. It would be out of order for any leader of a foreign power to use a non political occasion comment on a sensitive issue.

Commenters in sections of the media supporting the “No” campaign to the campaign to keep the UK intact claimed the support of the warmonger Obama represented a major boost to their campaign.

In our view, Obama has given Alex Salmond and The Scottish Nationalist’s “Yes” campaign a huge advantage. Telling a Scot what to do is a safe and sure way to guarantee they will do the opposite. Only a naive and egocentic clown like Obama could be ignorant of this.
