(45-50 minutes) Using historical precedents and patterns which persist throughout the British Imperial construct, I’ll explain why ‘Devo-Max’ has recently been touted as a third choice in a ‘next’ Scottish referendum and how against the backdrop of inevitable Tory militarisation of Brexit Britain – and the end of British State – the US/UK military-intelligence cartel intend use this ploy to retain a degree of ‘invisible’ control over Scotland’s resources and psyche; and in doing so seed division and wear-down Scots morale in order to gaslight-compel economic concessions and to erode political resolve intended force the continued siting of their Trident nuclear submarines based near the City of Glasgow…
For those unaware, ‘Devo-Max’ had previously been ruled out by Westminster as an option in the 2014 independence referendum simply because as the middle ground ‘comprise’ it would’ve won hands down.
As an ex-British Army Sgt Major with just over 25 years served (1985-2011) I’d have voted for Devo Max back then. ‘Devo-Max’ is in essence a ‘Home Rule’ rehash which would’ve kept Scotland within the British State with Westminster retaining control over strategic issues such as Defence (notably Trident based at Faslane) whilst enabling Scotland to have control over a host of other areas such as its own media, natural resources and economic wealth. So no prizes for guessing why Westminster ruled it out as an option.
As such, like any self-respecting Scotsman forced to make a choice on whether Scotland should run Scotland, or continue to be run by a toxically-entitled Eton aristocratic clique; the choice was a no-brainer and I campaigned for Yes. Most people still refer to it as the ‘Scottish referendum’ but to be more accurate it was a British corporate-political propaganda war waged against Scotland.
And so to be frank I’ve learned more about the real history of the British State since 2014 than I’d been ‘taught’ in all the years before it, having had my ‘British prism’ semi-permanently sealed in pre/adolescence as a State school indoctrinated council house kid. This is why I became politicised on my life-long journey towards ‘Gaslighting Gilligan’.
Because during all the No campaigns’ self-proclaimed ‘Project Fear’ mongering and their incessant lies during the 2014 ‘referendum’, leading into the weeks and days before the 18th September vote, polling for Yes worried Westminster so much a propaganda ploy called ‘The Vow’ was deployed and splashed on the front page of a corporate-elite tabloid rag as if it were a legitimate document. It was of was of course a meaningless Machiavellian ‘expectation management’ stunt to facilitate dinosaur Gordon Brown – with zero political mandate – to strut his stuff;
But that’s all water under the bridge right? All in the past yes? Nope. Because the past is forever in the present with the same patterns, which if left unchallenged, are engineered to shape the future. Which is why as I’ll set out, we keep going back to the future – and why it isn’t all ‘coincidence’.
It’s not coincidence either that I put this piece out today because it marks the 50th anniversary of the 1972 massacre in the north of Ireland known as ‘Bloody Sunday’, during which 14 unarmed civilians taking part in a peaceful civil rights march, were shot dead in Derry by British forces who claimed they were fired upon first. This has since been proven to be a lie and the half-century long UK government, military, police, judiciary and media cover-up continues.
However prior to this a lesser known ‘Bloody Sunday’ took place in Dublin in 1920 where as a reprisal for IRA killings of British military intelligence agents in the morning, later in the afternoon British Crown forces of the Royal Irish Constabulary and the infamous ‘Black & Tans’ entered Croke Park which was packed full of spectators watching a Gaelic football match.
Claiming their own British intelligence sources had informed them some of the IRA men were in the stadium (some were) the RIC and Black & Tans further claimed they were then fired upon from within the crowd – before opening up on them – indiscriminately killing 28 people and wounding 77. Perversely, given the enclosed space the death toll could have been much higher, as similarly, the British murdered 369 innocent civilians (unofficial estimates are far higher) and wounded thousands in an enclosed space during the 1919 Amritsar Massacre.
However unlike in Ireland it would appear no such ‘they shot at us first’ pretext was trotted out in India, quite probably because they have brown skin. And so the British felt there was no need to ‘justify’ their actions with a lie. I mean, why make matters ‘worse’ right? Because that’s the twisted irony of Etonian ‘gentlemen’; an ‘unnecessary’ lie is the actual classist ‘burden’ to bear, more so than their cyclical mass-murder of ‘lesser’ people.
But do you see the ongoing pretext which takes place when the victims are in a ‘British’/Irish domestic setting and they’re white? The forces perpetrating the massacre feel the need to ‘justify’ it and generally do so by playing the ‘victim’.
You see victimhood is actually a British State propaganda weapon routinely deployed by the perpetrator to seize the ‘moral authority’, which then buries and attempts to propaganda omit these atrocities as having ever occurred at all. This is in order they can be carried out time and again in both the UK domestic environment; from Bloody Sunday to the Battle of Orgreave, to the Hillsborough tragedy and the most recent cover-up to Grenfell Tower but also abroad, most notably the illegal 2003 war in Iraq.
However being propaganda practiced for so long, I’m absolutely convinced the British State began going much further than merely claiming victimhood after the fact, but rather have cyclically set-up the necessary Machiavellian pretexts to portray themselves as ‘victim’ before and during staging their atrocities.
And so I contend that against the seamless, ideological backdrop of a poverty and sectarian class-war specifically waged on Catholic communities in the north of Ireland, these communities having been inspired by Martin Luther King’s Civil Rights movement to undertake peaceful marches for basic human right and freedoms, the British State deliberately started ‘The Troubles’ in circa 1969 and deliberately intended for the 1972 civil rights march to become a massacre;
‘Dressed-up by State propaganda as a ‘cultural-religious conflict’, it was actually a 10 Downing Street, MI5 and British Army intelligence-led strategy to begin the so-called ‘Troubles’ in 1969 in order to start a war, which would not only serve to galvanise the ‘stoic’ British ‘construct’ within Ulster but to enable the UK Government to portray itself around the world as the ‘hard-done-to-victim’ and the ‘responsible adult’ in the room, unavoidably caught in the middle of a centuries-long battle between sectarian zealots.’ ‘A Very British State Boogeyman: The ‘MI’-RA’ (2019) https://wp.me/p94Aj4-Xn
This is the reality of the British condition which needs conflict because;
‘The British construct cannot exist without adversity; internal or external, or without an enemy; real or imagined. Which is why it creates them – to toxically ‘galvanise’ a fabricated ‘stoic-victim’ mentality. And explains why we ‘children’ will always be at war with someone until we break the UK aristocrat-engineered cycles of our own indoctrinated destruction’. ‘The Real Last UK Colony: The English Working Masses’ (2017) https://wp.me/p94Aj4-eS
And which in doing so, by sparking and fomenting ‘The Troubles’ to get the backlash the British needed to continue to exist in the north of Ireland, would also serve as a 30 year long advanced warning to Scots (& the Welsh) who might have ideas of peaceful marches for independence – should we discover in the early days of The McCrone Report – the vast oil reserves in Scotland’s territorial waters incorporated within its North Sea maritime borders.
This is why I’m convinced ‘The Troubles’ – which I think ‘romantically’ understates the brutality of the time – were preceded by equally brutal and UK propaganda omitted events which I’ve already alluded to. You see these events in the north of Ireland couldn’t have taken place if events half a century earlier hadn’t happened; specifically the 1919-21 Irish War of Independence having itself been inspired by the ‘failed’ 1916 Easter Uprising which would eventually lead to forcing master of the dark arts Winston Churchill to the negotiation table and his 1922 Anglo Irish ‘Treaty’.
However as accomplished soldier as Michael Collins was, he was no match for the Machiavellian Churchill who as a key negotiator in Lloyd George’s Government, engineered the ‘treaty’ to result in the partition of Ireland (a playbook precursor to his 1947 genocidal partition of India during which a million people were displaced or murdered and today still sees a bitter stand-off between the nuclear armed India and Pakistan).
This British State partition created ‘Northern Ireland’ where the 16th/17th century British Imperial ‘plantation’ policy settling Scottish and English Protestants to Anglicise and ‘civilise’ Ireland had been most concentrated. And which some 350 years later became the renewed Westminster aristocracy pretext to sustain 20th century sectarian divisions and to perpetuate even more atrocities, not only in ‘The Province’ but in the Irish ‘Free’ State itself to turn brother against brother and even supplying the weapons on both sides of the ‘border’ to do so.
For clarity, I wouldn’t dream of trying to judge in hindsight the right and wrongs of the anti-Treaty and Free State protagonists. They were all in an impossible situation and up against what was – until very recently – without doubt the darkest, most cunning Empire since the Roman Empire. By the way, Empire’s don’t die – not really. They simply recede from consciousness, migrate and re-emerge elsewhere.
The lesson here is pretext and to truly appreciate and consciously process the Imperial patterns housed in centuries-long events, which are themselves the ideological-legacy weapons left behind by past leaders for future conflicts; with which, each subsequent generation of Etonians will cyclically re-arm themselves in the perennial present e.g. The Suez, Northern Ireland, The Falklands and soon Scotland’s Faslane and the so-called ‘Crown Estates’ lands and sea-beds.
And as such, far from being ‘unfortunate hangovers’ of a dim and distant past these pretexts are in fact used as the ‘legal’ and even morally-outraged ‘right’ to ‘defend’ them, or rather to retain power and control over their resources, brutalise and ‘police’ them within an inch of their existences, until such time as the colonies on rare occasions outlive their usefulness and ‘let go’ or as is more often the omitted case – are set to finally break ‘free’, with many ironically still clinging onto the construct via The British ‘Commonwealth’.
Occasionally, even if the British construct knows it won’t succeed in retaining a strategically important or profitable colony militarily – it will nonetheless, motivated also by bitterness and hatred, incite atrocities against local populations such those initiated by Churchill during the 1952-63 Mau Mau Uprising in Kenya, as well as instigate genocide as a ‘parting shot’ which just like Churchill’s Indo-Pakistan partition in 1947, his ongoing Palestinian ‘Nakba’ in 1948 and before those, his deliberately engineered Bengal famine in 1943 killing an estimated 2-3 million people – during WWII – is meted out on a Biblical scale to ensure there remains regional fractures which can be perpetually exploited.
In Ireland’s case, the Westminster aristocracy and specifically Churchill, in weaponising his own Imperial past in his present, devised a ‘border’ scheme which would not only continue the British bloodletting presence in the north of Ireland but in that very moment, he could secure his ‘treaty’ – not Ireland’s. Because he knew that with the Irish people so sick of war in Europe and in Ireland, Churchill had a gun to their head in the shape of a British State backlash – should the treaty agreement fail. And so this would pile impossible pressure on Irish Dáil politicians who would fall over themselves to deliver ‘peace’.
However in securing this ‘peace’ in the immediate term would as Churchill no doubt already intended, foreseeably fracture the Irish Republican movement and given the history between the British State and the Irish, would inevitably result in the 1922/23 Irish Civil War and thereby create subsequent opportunities paved by Churchill, for future leaders of the UK Government and specifically Tory 1922 Committee trustees, to enable them to sustain decades of violence in Ulster, the very fear of which – of violence spilling back across the ‘border’ into Ireland again – would in addition to the standard British State blackmail and bribery, retain Machiavellian, psychological and therefore actual influence over The Irish ‘Free’ State – without the requirement for a Union Flag to be flying over Dublin Castle.
And Scotland will be dealt with no differently. Certainly now that independence is inevitable – right? Not quite. It would be inevitable if we weren’t up against not only the British State but its ‘Special Relationship’ corporate political partner-in-war-crimes – and the most powerful Empire ever known on the face of the planet – the United States of America.
You see what everyone outside of the meta-fascist agenda fails to truly acknowledge is what the Stars and Stripes stands to ‘lose’ strategically – in addition to losing control over and getting its cut of Scotland’s North Sea oil revenues which currently flow to The White House & Wall Street as well as Westminster & The City of London – if Scotland were ever allowed to succeed in gaining ‘independence’. And this is why;
‘Nothing short of all-out war led by the US & UK will stop the inevitable disintegration of the so-called ‘United’ Kingdom; leading to the unceremonious end of the British Monarchy; the fall of the Anglosphere ‘Five Eyes’ intelligence-sharing apparatus which will result in a blunted NATO and with it; an independent Scotland’s red-line removal of the UK/US nuclear weapons from our most populated City of Glasgow’. ‘Glasgow COP26: Scotland’s Mission Impossible – Defending a ‘Eunuch’ Nation’ (2021) https://wp.me/p94Aj4-2RA
You see in their US/UK corporate elite eyes, those inevitable consequences are too much to ‘lose’ for the sake of an inconsequential “minor entity in north Britain” (Lord George Robertson) or for the sake of an ancient Sovereign nation reduced over the course of three centuries since the ‘Union’, to an English ‘county’ status. And so to maintain their power, privilege, wealth and the military-intelligence apparatus – the Orwellian ‘Party’ of ‘1984’ infamy need Scotland to die.
At the moment Scotland’s Unicorn is being slowly strangled by Westminster’s chains which can be seen in their denial of Scotland’s right to exist and which has become ever more concentrated since Brexit. Indeed the British State is still trying to extinguish us altogether via ‘Gleichschaltung Gaslight: The Eradication of Scots Historic-Cultural Identity’ (2017) https://wp.me/p94Aj4-ye and via the fascist ‘Internal Market Bill – A UK Enabling Act, Anschluss, Regime Change, A Soldier’s Psychological Tool & ‘Rope-A-Dope’ Distraction’ (2020) https://wp.me/p94Aj4-21W – which similarly is how the proposed Devo Max ‘solution’ should be viewed.
You see just like the Internal Market Act (2021) ‘Devo Max’ is also a gaslight ruse which will sell the idea of ‘stability’ on the surface but which is in fact a ploy to maintain some degree of the status quo. It’s aim is for the anachronistic ‘Crown Estate’ cartel to keep some of their current corporate gains and maintain some form of grip on Scotland’s resources which will run in tandem with a propaganda campaign to guilt-trip Scots into compliance, and ‘expected’ to ‘share’ our resources as a matter of legacy ‘right’.
However doing so would from the very outset diminish Scotland’s future negotiating position(s) on and outside this island and never truly allow Scotland to be free of the expectation and sense of self-righteous, morally ‘superior’ entitlement that runs throughout the British psyche; because no matter what concessions you make or what you give ‘It’ – it’ll never be enough. History has taught us that nothing is ever enough for narcissists. This is because;
‘Fascism, steeped in pathological hypocrisy, superiority entitlement and inveterate victimhood, is the group-characteristic extension of narcissism and is the Machiavellian-patriotic, militarised business model extension of joint Government and corporate engineered crisis-capitalism’. ‘Characteristics Of An Individual Narcissist & A Fascist State’ (© 2017) https://wp.me/p94Aj4-dZ
Moreover, if Scotland can’t be allowed to manage its own resources as any other country in Europe does and is ‘expected’ to gift England a ‘share’ for ‘old times sake’, then the English themselves will never learn to stand on their own two feet; which let’s face it England hasn’t done for centuries, if it ever actually has at all. (Won’t be popular for that but it’s a fact).
Think about this too; it’s a strange phenomena whereby the predominantly English-British condition (British ‘Scots’ and ‘Welsh’ do this too) will look down or across society to find fault in people or blame them simply because they don’t think or feel like them, yet will never ever ever – under any circumstances – look upwardly at the posh aristocrat cartel and hold them accountable because they believe they are ‘of them’.
It’s almost as if the indoctrinated sense of British exceptionalism leads them to believe that their unacknowledged dependence on Scotland is a ‘benevolent act’ on their behalf towards their ‘inferior’ neighbours to the north. Without which, this indoctriNation is unable to maintain the ‘superior’ British prism and with it sustain their anachronistic, warring world view and ‘senior’ hierarchical place in it which ironically, needs a guiding ‘comfort blanket’ clinging onto Etonian apron-strings and American coattails.
This puffed-up ‘State’ that cannot exist without wars has been increasingly evident in the dismissive post-Brexit British abuse Scotland has been subjected to by the toxically ‘entitled’ Westminster aristocracy, and its demonstrable attempts to destabilise and undermine Scotland as a nation.
And as more people come to consciously process that for the British construct to rise above mediocrity, it has always needed adversity and conflict to exist and victimhood-steeped self-righteous ‘moral outrage’ to matter. And as its hidden truths of generational atrocities are unearthed – particularly during ‘The Troubles’ – neither the world and just as importantly will the English working masses themselves expect Scots to have to hold another referendum to secure its freedom and escape the British prism prison.
Certainly not when the 55 million populace south of the border finally process that Nigel Farage and UKIP were in fact Tory projects platformed by their mainstream media all along, whose role was to create the far-right space necessary for ‘The Party’ to fill with fascist policies and propaganda.
And as such, these 55 million Englishmen and women are about to take their own ‘independence’ from their Westminster aristocracy and in doing so deliver Scotland’s and Wales independence and a reunified Ireland.
This is why I believe the seed of ‘Devo Max’ has been re-planted. Not to actually deliver Devo Max per se but – knowing that the writing is on the wall for the British State – ‘The Party’ elite cartel outside of the ‘usual US/UK suspects’, will use the notion of Devo Max itself to undermine Scottish unity – just as Churchill achieved in 1922 via his Anglo Irish Treaty – but in doing so today’s Tories, faced with the prospect of further mass civil unrest in England and the threat of (US/‘UK’ intelligence-cartel) atrocities waged in Scotland, compel the Scottish people to put pressure on peacetime leader Nicola Sturgeon and tempt her SNP to choose to snatch a ‘pseudo’ Devo Max defeat from the jaws of victory.
How? As Westminster attempt to turn the British military on and subdue the English population, and the media placate, coerce and guilt-shame them into compliance, British and US intelligence assets will specifically orchestrate violence waged in and against Scotland. This will of course be media propaganda framed as an ‘internal’ Scots mass civil unrest and to portray Scotland as the backwards ‘basket case’ the British State always tries to make us out to be.
Indeed, securing the resource-siphoning cohesion of the British construct is the true purpose not only the BBC but entire UK corporate ‘news’ media who in the guise of keeping us informed, often act as subtle ‘stoic’-propaganda stenographers for the US/UK kleptocrat cartel, and ‘legitimise’, ‘moralise’ and ‘patriotise’ policies needed to protect and consolidate power by turning truth on its head and normalising the demonstrably absurd.
As British military manpower resources won’t last effectively much beyond a week (if that) without the popular support of the population who are united in the anger at the Tories, the Westminster cartel as a whole – red and blue – specifically need a pretext to initiate their original 2017 plan which after multiple failed attempts since, is currently underway yet again. And we’re all witnessing it.
‘Why have the US and the UK chosen to whip up a massive campaign against a possible Russian invasion of Ukraine, that makes no sense in mid-winter against a well-equipped and fiercely patriotic Ukraine?’ via @declassifiedUK (link below)
Because the thing is, far from Johnson wanting to negotiate a peace where a war hasn’t yet started, he needs to coordinate with Putin to start a war in order to save his own skin.
And it’s all taking place against the backdrop of the US armed, puppet Government in Ukraine whose soldiers and people, as are ordinary Russians – as are we all – being played by the US/UK Governments and their fascist Tripartite Pact partner Vladimir Putin; the three of whom together with the complicit corporate media are trying to contain and control the narratives between themselves with minimal scope for objective, outside interference.
Between them they are attempting to start the war that engineers the Tory UK ‘National Emergency’ they so desperately need in order to smokescreen the unfolding Brexit sea-ports chaos and enable a ‘war-footing’ to seek outside ‘assistance’ from – you guessed it – their very own US co-conspirators.
This was originally intended to take place under the Trump Presidency via ‘Op Fukuglaschu’ – A Trigger for Global Fascism’ https://wp.me/p94Aj4-Gt with the UK population having been psychologically softened-up in the weeks and months beforehand via the NHS cyber attack ‘inevitability narrative’…
…and which just prior to the failed ‘July Crisis’ capitalist attempt, as part of the PsyOp lead-in, specifically blamed Iran for the cyber ‘attack’ on Westminster computers which took place on 23rd June 2017.
However that was the same day I flew over to Berlin (freedom of movement people!) prior to the main attempt taking place and catastrophically interrupted the plan just before ‘It’ could be unleashed during July 2017. I’ve outlined this in the short video below which has been downloaded over 35K times in the last six months and which upon Tory militarisation, will act as a benchmark to measure the accuracy of my wider interpretations.
Video recorded on 25th June 2018, on the first anniversary of going to Berlin and warning the German Bundes Polizei & Irish Embassy on 250617, of the inevitable #ToryAnalytica coup d’etat militarisation of Brexit and the arrival of a US/UK-led global fascism;
Failing US specific ‘intervention’ – or in other words yet another failed coup d’etat attempt – the EU, UN or NATO elements might compel or indeed insist on a ‘neutral’ military presence to stop the violence.
This would seem reasonable enough on the surface but we’ll know if those managing this are Orwellian ‘Party’ plants intent on maintaining the hierarchical status quo or at the very least, shielding those in power from having to face due process for war crimes and crimes against humanity, not only for what they attempted but their attempts since; to blame then draw Iran into war via Faslane in Strathclyde in Scotland, with subsequent attempts via Syria, India and Pakistan, Palestine/Israel, the Suez and Afghanistan – during which they’ve murdered thousands of innocent people – in pursuit of their much-vaunted “Global Britain” and Atlantic Bridge founder Liam Fox’s symbolism-laced “Empire 2.0” project.
That stated, any such external-force deployment on mainland Britain would be relatively short-lived too. This is because as part of the ‘asymmetric-warfare’ or ‘hybrid-war’, a number of global meta-fascist coup related propaganda narratives are also unravelling, the most significant and compelling of which was also ‘predicted’ by Orwell but hasn’t yet entered into the mass consciousness – simply because it doesn’t fit with our conditioned cultural biases and gender stereotypes;
“When we can cut man from his own past, then we can cut him from his family, his children, other men… If you’re a man, you’re the last man. Your kind is extinct. We are the inheritors. Do you understand that you’re alone? You are outside of history. You unexist”. Orwell, ‘1984’.
As such, like it or not a global juggernaut is headed humanity’s way. People will inevitably overcome their mass cognitive dissonance which will see a considerable number of western ‘democracies’ and especially those in the ‘Five Eyes’ media-intelligence Anglosphere cartel; UK, US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand become militarised. The key at this stage will be to ensure the police and military are legitimately protecting the populace and not shielding the powerful from due process.
This will happen as we come to terms with what was and still is being manipulated; a precedented military recruitment campaign to feed an endless stream of poor, directionless yet patriotic young men who are being simultaneously further induced into a mass depression by being demonised, dehumanised and guilt-shamed channelled into a ‘heroic’ military uniform, in order to seamlessly supply the necessary cannon-fodder for an endless global war.
That propaganda campaign? #MeToo.
I’ll say it again; #MeToo is a precedented propaganda campaign to divide, decimate and drive predictable emotional-behavioural responses designed to manipulate men – specifically white heterosexual men who are the backbone of western armies and the key demographic to controlling the streets – by making them more susceptible to State and societal subservience.
In the meantime the corporate-political media cartel will continue to gaslight populations and specifically Scotland, as part of the psychological softening-up which will attempt to emotionally blackmail and empathy-compel all Scots to accept the ‘short-term’ gain to secure ‘peace and stability’ via a Devo Max-esque ‘solution’ (without an actual ‘referendum’ being held).
In short, there’ll be no ‘British State’ as such but Scotland – and its resources – will still be chained to ‘It’ in all but name via corporate ‘Crown Estate’ means, with Scots having been channelled into compliance by media projected blame, victimhood, guilt and fear which are always in the typical abusers armoury.
And so just like post-wars Ireland in 1922, the lethal theatre for the illusion of a ‘free’ Scotland is about to be staged on the back of the inevitable militarisation of the Tories own failing coup d’etat; with the aim of ensuring US/UK nuclear weapons continue to poison Scotland’s waters next to its largest City of Glasgow – despite their ‘Trojan Horse’ attempt to end Scotland altogether via ‘Op Fukuglaschu’ in 2017 and since, via the Middle East and by attempting to restart the dilapidated Hunterston nuclear reactor; ‘Hunterston (Oven Ready Brexit) Scotland’s Tombstone?’ (2019) https://wp.me/p94Aj4-1kf and ‘Yellowhammer Anagram: ‘Orwell Mayhem’ by Cummings “Meltdown” Symbolism’ (2019) https://wp.me/p94Aj4-1mL
On some shameless level, they will attempt ensure a percentage of oil and renewables revenues flow uninterrupted to the ‘invisible Empire’ based in London, DC and Moscow, albeit with a little extra ‘pocket money’ for the Scots, aided no doubt by current British cartel backhanders given to their fascist red and blue Tory and corporate plants in a ‘Scottish Free State’, by duping the population into repeating the same predictable pretext pattern mistakes.
A pattern in which a seemingly ‘independent’ Scotland mimics the same century-long illusion currently found in ‘independent’ Ireland, but in which, just as is the case in ‘UK’ and US today; poverty, homelessness and socioeconomic deprivation are also rife, and where too the police don’t serve the people but prioritise the protection of corporate-political power – a perfect fit for ‘Airstrip One’.
No, there isn’t a Union Flag flying over Dublin Castle but its still there in its ideology and ‘It’ intends to fly invisibly over Edinburgh Castle – long after ‘Great Britain’ has ‘ended’.
Imperial pretexts and patterns. There’s a deliberate rationale as to why the British condition is either at or always on the edge of war. It needs war to exist. Live. Die. Repeat.
