UK Conservatives in another ‘Victory’ for British Establishment

For the past 100 years, Britain has been ruled for most decades under the Conservative party. The Tories can be thus considered the «establishment party» of British politics. This dominance is not simply a reflection of democratic choice by the British electorate. It is rather because Britain’s system of parliamentary democracy is one of the most regressive and anti-democratic among modern nation states. In many ways, Britain’s ruling establishment has prevailed again and again – in spite of democratic choice...

A Game of Scottish Solitaire for Europe (II)

...Various anti-crisis programs are being prepared in different parts of Europe. Until now the leaders of the Veneto self-determination movement have been sounding conciliatory enough. They wish to retain the euro while others call for leaving the eurozone and go back to national currencies. Marin Le Pen, the head of French National Front, is convinced that her country has to return the national currency, something possessed by 95% of the countries in the world as the circulation of euro makes thousands of enterprises go bankrupt... The economic problems faced by the European Union and the growth of separatist trends in Europe are two sides of the same coin.

A Game of Scotch Solitaire for Europe (I)

«Whenever you fall, pick something up» advises a Scottish proverb. That’s a fairly good description of the current state of separatist movements in Europe. Various nooks and crannies of the Old World eagerly followed September’s referendum on self-determination in Scotland. Now many are trying to absorb and apply the methods used by Scottish separatists in order to advance their own interests - just like the Scots, themselves, post-referendum. The deepest reverberations from the events in Scotland were felt in Catalonia where new political skirmishes are rocking a nation already beset by a severe socio-economic crisis...

Scotland Kicks off Process of Europe’s Fragmentation

The Scottish referendum results show that something is rotten in the state of the United Kingdom. The event has given an impetus to the separatist aspirations in Ulster, Wales and the Island of Maine and even in the tin-rich Cornwall County believed to be the homeland of legendary king Arthur. The idea of getting more preferences from London without offering anything in return has become popular. The referendum has changed Scotland. The turnout was great with people of all walks of life and ages going to polls... In Europe separatists are gaining strength in Catalonia, Flandria (Belgium), Corsica (France), Northern Italy and Bavaria (Germany). They construe the referendum results as a victory of independent Scotland because it has asserted its right to self-determination...

Referendum in Scotland and Separatist Trend in Europe

Alex Salmond is to step down as first minister of Scotland and as leader of the Scottish National Party (SNP) after voters rejected independence in Thursday's (September 18) referendum. What kind of a person is he, the man who leads the Scottish nationalists? Is he a loser or a just someone who happened to be ahead of the times? Time will tell. It’s not right to call the referendum historic and believe Scotland will always be part of Great Britain. The prevailing majority of young people voted for independence while elder people wanted to remain part of the United Kingdom.

Russian Oligarchs Enjoy Scot-Free Property Boom

While the British government-led No campaign is piling on scare claims to deter people voting Yes for independence in the historic Scottish referendum this week, one powerful London-based group stands to make handsome profits from the bitter contest – the Russian oligarchs. Multi-billionaire Russian and Ukrainian tycoons have gained notoriety in recent years for their splurging on up-market London property and other high-end real estate. Around 10 per cent of the London real estate aggregate market value is estimated to in the hands of mega-rich Russians. That’s a phenomenal growth in one the world’s most expensive cities. So prominent have Russian tycoons become in the British capital’s property sector that London is often now jokingly referred to as “Moscow on the Thames” or “Londongrad”.

Why London Fears Scottish Independence

The pro-independent Scotland campaign has gained the momentum to win as Scots go to a referendum next week to decide on whether the country will secede from the United Kingdom... The secession of Scotland will place the center-right Conservatives into sharper competition with the more rightwing UK Independence Party (UKIP), which has risen dramatically in recent polls to upend the three main parties. The vociferously anti-European Union UKIP wants Britain to quit the EU altogether over grievances of immigration and alleged infringement of sovereignty by Brussels... Another factor that the London establishment is having deep misgivings over is the issue of North Sea oil and gas. Scottish independence would see 90 per cent of all future tax revenues being directed to Edinburgh rather than London since most of the oil and gas fields will lie within Scottish maritime territory...

St. Andrew’s Flag Flown over Scotland and Donetsk

That’s the way the history goes. The St. Andrew’s flag is flown in two places in Europe situated at great distance from each other. Scotland and Novorossia are struggling for their national identity under the same colors. The two peoples divided by different history and cultures are addressing the issue of independence. They are going different ways; a peaceful referendum is to take place in Scotland while Novorossia is going through the horrors of civil war. But they are united by the same goal and its symbol – the St. Andrew flag...

London’s Devious Plans for Scotland’s Independence Referendum

There are credible reports that the British government, which includes the Conservative and Liberal Democratic parties, as well as the Labor opposition, have colluded with the British media to downplay in articles, news broadcasts, and published opinion polls the actual strength of the pro-independence "Yes" campaign in Scotland... For example, a few months ago, the British government instructed the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) in a confidential document to undermine at every opportunity the Yes vote... There is a strong belief that other British networks and newspapers, including Rupert Murdoch's Sky News and the Times of London, received the same instruction and obediently carried it out...

«Welcome for Scottish Will Stand Being True to the Scottish Flag…»

The Scottish independence referendum is slated for September 18. The issue was initiated in 2007 by Alex Salmond, the leader of the Scottish National Party. Back then his party received majority in the Scottish parliament to make him First Minister of Scotland. In May 2011 he announced the intention to hold a referendum on independence. He used ideology, history and legal grounds to perfectly substantiate the idea. London could not prevent the plebiscite. The only thing British Prime Minister David Cameron could do was to call for «Nay» vote...
