More Globalist Fail – Scotland Poll Majority Wish To Stay in United Kingdom and Out of EU…

After the Brexit vote, the immediate and continual cries from the failed globalists within the ‘Remain’ camp exploited a narrative of Scotland who had a majority vote to stay in the EU.

However, the most current poll (full pdf below) now offering Scotland the option to leave the United Kingdom and align with the European Union,  finds the majority of Scots want to stay in the UK even if it means they cannot access the single-market system of the European Union.

Additionally, there are many indications that Britain is on the cusp of a major economic boom as a result of the EU Brexit.  This poll is a significant fail for the narrative of the European and Western globalists.

(Reuters) Most Scots still back remaining in the United Kingdom despite Britons voting to leave the European Union, a move which was opposed by the majority in Scotland, according to an opinion poll published on Saturday.

Scotland’s nationalist First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said the June 23 vote for Brexit had put Scottish independence back on the agenda just two years after it was rejected in a referendum.

While Britons backed leaving the EU by 52-48 percent, Scots voted by 62-38 percent to remain in the bloc, an outcome Sturgeon argues has changed the political landscape regarding possible Scottish secession.

However according to Saturday’s YouGov survey, 53 percent of Scots wanted to stay part of the United Kingdom with 47 percent backing independence.

Even when asked if they would rather stay in the EU but leave the UK, 46 percent of the 1,006 respondents said they wanted to remain in the UK and only 37 percent preferred Scotland becoming an independent nation within the bloc.

“Inevitably, some will suggest that the high-water mark of Scottish independence has now passed, especially as it was thought that leaving the EU might persuade ‘No’ voters to change their minds and vote against the Union,” said Joe Twyman, YouGov’s Head of Political and Social Research.

Just as multiculturalism was an admitted failure in 2010, 2011 and beyond, and with the entire world watching the crisis of mid-east refugees and increasing terrorism, the nationalist and patriotic sentiments in the various national political structures are now finding the pendulum shifting away from globalism.

The increasing shift toward self-determination and sovereign control now carries all the political momentum.

The liberally inspired cultural appeal of sitting naked around a drum circle eating sustainable algae cakes and picking parasites off each other has run it’s course.  Common sense appears to be taking over again.

    • I have observed many people expressing confusion over the behavior of Scottish voters over the last few years. They cannot resolve “Braveheart” and “Highlander” with the weakened culture they see today. My response is always 1) duh, those were MOVIES, but more importantly 2) most of the Europeans who thought and acted the way Americans think and act, left Europe a long time ago. WE think and act that way today because THEY ARE US.

        Claygate,
        I really loved #2, and it does make sense. However, as a young teen I read a lot of Scottish history, and many were brave Warriors. I just want to share a story that I learned long ago.

        The British soldiers were well hated and despised by the Scottish for many good reasons. So when the Scots would run into them they would display to them the sign language of a reversed peace sign of what we know today. This two fingered sign has the same meaning of our one middle fingered sign language, both face the same way.

        The British soldiers were well known to cut off those two fingers, so the Scotts would be unable to pull their bow and kill them in a confrontation. So, when the Scotts would come up on them or vice versa the Scotts would proudly display their two fingers.

        It drives me crazy to see hollywood and others to flip the peace sign, totally oblivious to the meaning the Scots still use today. The British and Welsh use the same sign as well, and I would suspect the Irish do too. I was even known to use it in my younger years. So, if you ever see someone from the UK display this sign, you will now know it’s true meaning. I can’t remember the book I read it in because it was so long ago, but I’m sure it’s on the internet somewhere.
        Have a beautiful weekend,

            • 🙂 I believe Jacob is trying to point out that the Scots historically were fighting against the English. “British” simply means “of the island of Britain”; “British culture” is a recent concept, and the idea of a “British nation-state” is clearly still very tenuous. Technically the 1745 rebellion could be described as “against the British government” but realistically it was Scotland vs. England.

              I am very much aware of the history and culture of Scotland and the formidable talents of her peoples. And I should not have implied that EVERYONE in Scotland today is a gullible weakling. I apologize.

              But as Keln and wolfmoon1776 noted above, those who left Europe for the USA tended to be those who were fed up with Europe. Yes, the Scots were fantastic warriors, but after England kept abusing them, century after century, to the point of attempting genocide during the mid 1700s, many Scots simply decided “to hell with it” and left. I find no shame in that at all.

              And this happened all across Europe. The stubborn independent “troublemakers” tended to be those who came to the USA – and southern Africa, Australia, the Río de la Plata, and elsewhere.

              I recommend David Hackett Fischer’s “Albion’s Seed” for an introduction to this way of thinking about both American and European culture. I don’t agree with all of his arguments or conclusions, but it’s a fascinating, excellent book.

                That is a great book arguing that the progress of history in America is more a matter of cultural tendencies of the various tribes of immigrants than landmark documents or particular political acts.

                As for Scottish independence, their complaints were misdirected at Whitehall because everything they complained about, ukip complained about, whose proper target was Brussels. Whatever abuse the English wrought on Scotland in the past is no longer true. In fact, as a population they are over represented in government today. Most realistic Scots know that an independent Scotland makes little sense. They are British now, albeit with a different accent.

          1) Everyone knows that the two-fingered gesture was the legendary ENGLISH response to the threat of mutilation by the French, during the 100 Years War. This was due to the fear of the English longbow. The “British”(English) had no such fear of Scottish archers(such as there were). The English longbow decimated the French on several occasions and also the Scots,when they had the temerity to invade England in support of France.

          2) Scots and Welsh ARE British…perhaps even more so than the English (after all, the Ancient Britons pre-dated the English arrival). After the merging of the thrones of England and Scotland(under a Scottish king) and the Act of Union 1707, we all became “British”….for good or ill!

        I’d also read the Irish were treated worse than slaves, sometimes used in more dangerous work where bosses didn’t want to risk losing a slave. Life was very hard in Ireland back then … it’s hard to comprehend history in light of how bad life was for so many outside the “better” cultures.

        The coddled generations of late are way too quick to give away control of government to such two faced criminal hucksters as Hillary/Obama.

    Hundreds of years of oppression by the British, and the resultant poverty of a country with only whiskey and oil as main exports has given the Scots a poor mindset. Not much arable land, either. The Vikings raided elsewhere largely seeking land, as well. The Irish starved because the only thing that would grow failed once too often. Red-headed step-child likely originates there, and describes the Scots’ history to a T. But even the strongest and most stalwart of cultures has it’s limits.

    I continually saw that mindset in my father’s life. Even though he and his brothers were brought here young, he was always American in his heart, but no matter how successful he was, it was never enough to shake that coal miner’s son mentality. Not a bad deal, since I learned how to do a lot of things he refused to pay someone else to do. With three boys, who wouldn’t?

    Cowed, is what the Scots are, now. It’s only the older demos, as borne out in the data, that still dream of total independence from those Brits. For the others, their own Parliament is sufficient.

    Don’t worry about the Scots. They’ll hold their own as they always have, and they’ll keep supplying the world with The Macallan and The Glenfiddich to make your world a wee bit merrier…

    The most adventurous and forward thinking Scots migrated during the big gold rushes in California and Australia from 1850’s but many had already come out to explore from the 1830’s. They settled large areas of Australia and New Zealand farming many areas. The Scots then were very hardy and my father followed his father’s tradition of showering only in cold (often freezing cold) water every day of his life. The third Prime Minister of Australia was a Scot, Andrew Fisher. Fisher was born in Crosshouse, a mining village near Kilmaurs, East Ayrshire, Scotland. He was the second of eight children of Robert Fisher and Jane Garvin. He was a coal miner. The Scots also migrated to many other countries. The Scots were prominent thinkers because they believed in and valued, education and common sense. They were some of the great early engineers of railways, bridges and so on. I don’t know that this applies today.

      It is as nothing compared with the self-loathing of the English upper and upper middle classes for their Englishness. George Orwell understood it. In comparison, the Scots and Welsh have it easy-they are allowed to be proud of their nationality….it’s severely frowned upon in England (flying the Cross of St George is seen as somehow akin to wearing a Leibstandarte uniform to a synagogue).
