Our leaders headed to Scotland today, campaigning to save the Union – maybe they should have stayed in London

You know you live in a country run by idiots if … …
… you can be arrested for fishing or watching television without a license, but not for being in the country illegally.
… you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a school trip but not to get an abortion.
… you have to show identification to board an aircraft, pay by cheque or join a club but not to vote on who runs the government.
… the government bans stable, law-abiding citizens from owning guns for competition shooting but gives fighter jets, SAM missiles and launchers, heavy artillery and automatic rifles to crazy Islamic religious fanatic freedom fighters.
… you cannot buy two packs of paracetamol in one supermarket, but you can visit every supermarket, pharmacy and general shop in town and buy a pack in each.
… an 80-year-old woman can be stripped searched by the borders Agency officials but a woman in a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched because anything more would be ‘culturally sensitive.
… your government and main opposition party believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of £££ of debt is to borrow trillions more.
… a seven year old boy can be accused of sexism and suspended from school for saying his teacher is ‘pretty’ but giving classes on sexual exploration or diversity to seven year olds is perfectly acceptable.
… the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to reward people for NOT working through a generous benefits system, but punish those who work with high taxes, pointless rules and regulations and a housing policy that make it impossible for couples to start a family because suitable housing is unaffordable.
… being stripped of the ability to defend yourself because as the Crown Prosecution Service goes after victims of crime who injure their attackers in defending themselves, passivity makes you more “safe according to the government.
All of these things prove you live in a country run by idiots.
The main point here is that the swing towards ‘Yes’ in Scotland may be simply a measure of pissedoffness with Westminster consensus politics and the idiocies of political correctness rather than any genuine wish for or understanding of the real implications of independence for Scotland.
