The scottish vote
I am English so I don’t get to vote if Scotland live “independently” from Britain, why would I? I don’t live on the right side of the border.
The vote of independence, and I think a lot of Scottish, Welsh, Irish and English people will agree is really ticking me off. It’s completely unclear what the hell is going on. The 16/17 year old vote cannot be avoided, they will be the backbone of independence it is their country and their future, but their vote probably is more likely to be yes, because with youth comes enthusiasm. Not necessarily a bad thing.
Why does being English suck? Let me point out England is not Britain, in the British government there is no English parliament… There is a Scottish one. In Scotland, Wales and northern Ireland university is free… In England it is not. In Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland prescriptions are free… In England it is not. We have the majority of people and the least benefits, maybe this is because we don’t actually get a say in the British government. Don’t even get me started on the house of lords…
We as a majority do not want a euro currency, this is why Scotland keeping our currency makes no sense. I personally don’t agree with the eurozone, we all have our own markets as well as Europe’s, perhaps one day we will operate as a giant unit but until then considering how not being in the Euro has saved our skin quite a bit, I don’t think it’s fair that we operate a similar system. The whole point of independence is that Scotland will be a stronger economical system anyway.
As an English person I am getting pretty alarmed by, what Is happening to the army bases? What is happening to energy prices? What is happening to the national debt? How is no other country in the world not alarmed by Scottish mp’s threatening to leave their part of their debt with Britain unpaid? Lets not be naive money makes the world go round and we are in masses of debt just like everyone else, after dealing with the absolute shambles of a banking disaster and idiocy of government changeover they want to dump the rest of the debt on everybody else? Whilst charging us for using space for army training and at the same time expecting to use our currency and have a vote in our government still. The coverage of whats going to happen makes utter nonsense.
I mean by this point I’m starting to feel angry. No if you are independent you don’t get a vote in my country’s government, no if you are independent you don’t get my country’s currency, no if you are independent you can’t dump your debt on my people. In a flash we are separated, but Scotland is just a border away and we are all such a web of blood ties in the british isles, why am I getting angry? I don’t want Scotland to go because it feels like I’m loosing part of my family, on the other hand it could be one of the best things to happen to English people. If only I wasn’t so a tune to how easily the British government gives in and gives away. I’d love to hear how they are selling it to you Scotland? At the moment over here Scotland just looks like a bully, the things you are demanding you already have, or at least to the sight of an English person who doesn’t have those privileges.
I’m sure this will rial people up the wrong way but I’m genuinely just interested to see the flipside and this is how it is coming across over here to a lot of people. Who trusts the media eh?
Hail the water
Love the bugs
Praise the birds
Kiss the thugs
Blue or Red
A bed astride the river,
My castle at sea,
My Liverpool and me
(Just a bit of dandy and love)
See a doctor
They shrink you down to size
sketch your psychologies
in words and waves
to paragraphs on plinths,
you cross your arms
you stutter your shoulders
You are minuscule
You are readable
You can be cured just like the rest of us.
Get back to work and be done with it.
As I dissipate notes of weather
my body contorts “do you remember me?
I remember you”
we are all but tethers and frays
It had occurred to me that all human beings are divided
into those who wish to move forward
and those who wish to go back.
the free lines
I am clear
fake it through the free lines
tell me you’ll be near
with oblique silences
and when it’s now
and when you’re far
I’ll know every ambiance
was a silver flicker of a lie
my heart melted into my brain
I shall be braving some poetry readings over this year again I do believe- wish me look ;)
Sticks and stones
May break my bones
But words will deep route in my psychology.
Thick or thin
It’ll sink in my skin
And it’s up to me to proclaim it false prodigy.
Yet both master and school
Have taught me not to rule
So I may fall to bad ideology.
Then when I’m depressed
Even when it’s confessed
You’ll claim it is all a dream,
And reality will be nothing more than a sheen,
And how long it can take
For a brain to brake
Is nothing short of a miracle.
Ignorance is bliss.

That writer being me attempting to blog on a new site…
You are my favourite

I am left indifferent to substitutions.
I have never wished another’s success
