Cameron says he will offer the people of the UK a referendum on membership of the EU, if the Tories are returned to power. Well this says a lot about the Union.
Unionists have tried to argue that Scotland wouldn’t be able to stay in the EU if we gained Independence, but he’s offering to have us removed if we stay in the Union. Scots certainly won’t get a say in an EU Referendum, since we are vastly outnumbered by English voters. And just like in General Elections, Scotland will just have to accept it.
But it says something else as well. Part of Cameron and the Unionists argument against Scottish Independence is the lie that anyone who supports Independence hates the English. They never come out and just say it, but they call us racists. Yet now, by offering the chance of an EU Referendum, he is trying to attract the votes of those people that hate the EU & mainland Europe. And that will definitley include racists.
And finally, he can’t have a go at Salmond saying he’s delaying a referendum on Scottish Independence then tell the entire UK they’ll not only have to vote for him and return him to power, but they’ll also have to wait until after they’ve done that in 2015. Hypocrite much?
