There’s A Catch…

…it’ll be haggis!

The Scottish Government is considering enshrining a ‘right to food’ in Scots law.

It is one of a number of recommendations being looked at following the publication of a report by the Independent Working Group on Food Poverty earlier this year.

If there’s a ‘right to’ something, there’s also an obligation on someone else to provide this something.

So Scottish taxpayers will be on the hook. Put down that smoked salmon, Hamish! You can’t afford it, you’ve got to pay for Jock & Iain and Catriona too…

    As with all of these rights that the collectivists are determined we all should have, those who bestow the rights can also take them away.

      And will, given half a chance.

    As it stands, Scottish tax payers cannot pay for their country with the spending commitments it has – specifically welfare.

    That means – as usual – the English are paying for them. As someone who considers himself British rather than English, who grew up in relative peace except for the IRA bombing campaigns, I find this ridiculous notion of Scotland being independent absurd. It’s part of the United Kingdom. It is a small, poor country with massively low levels of social mobility, incredible unemployment and high dependence on welfare.

    Sturgeon already has the ability to manage tax levies to alter Scotland so it could be financially independent. She chooses not to use them, relying on the Barnet formula – as that lets her blame England for her failures. She then whips up anti English sentiment while calling for a ‘referendum’ while wanting to join the EU. The Scots then, soak all this up and chant and wail about how great they are – because a liar tells them so – and whine and complain about how Scotland supports England – which is arrant gibberish.

    Do they not want better for themselves? Do they not want jobs, work and wealth? Why do they not question their government over their utterances? That wilful ignorance is keeping them poor. While they choose to be so, they must be treated as the ignorant are and ignored.

    No, not all Scots soak it up. The SNP are not supported by the majority of Scots. Go to “no confidence in the Scottish government” on Facebook to get a taste of the contempt they are held.

      But the media doesn’t focus on this. It has an agenda.
