The Westminster Cronies Al Qaeda ... You decide.


Something has been troubling me for some time; it did in 1979 before that referendum, it has again for more than a year. It crystalised not too long ago when the denizens of that inimical palace of Westminster labelled the tactics they would use in Scotland to secure a ‘No’ vote as ‘Project Fear’.

If we doubt Westminster and her allies are indeed inimical towards the Scots, we need only look to five quick definitions which can be uncovered with two minutes of browsing through almost any dictionary. 

Also, that Unionists are utelising a not-so-subtle form of terrorism against Scottish aspirations is becoming increasingly apparent as we begin coasting down the months towards the referendum in September 2014.
The only significant question to be asked is "why would we believe anything from such a source?". 



The online Cambridge dictionary was used for the definitions pasted below.

Project: a piece of planned work or an activity that is finished over a period of time and intended to achieve a particular aim.

Fear: an unpleasant emotion or thought that you have when you are frightened or worried by something dangerous, painful, or bad that is happening or might happen e.g., "Trembling with fear, she handed over the money to the gunman."

Terrorism: defined as ‘Threats of violent action for political purposes’

Terrorist: would be someone who uses violent action or threats of violent action for political purposes. 

Blackmail: the act of getting money from people or forcing them to do something by threatening to tell a secret of theirs or to harm them.

Accordingly, we have it clearly from the architects themselves. They describe their own work as ‘Project Fear’ and they’re proud of it, damned proud.

Consider the multitude of scare stories; from currency to oil; from the northern isles breaking away to ejection from the EU; from border controls to debt; the storming of Scotland’s airports by English forces to our inability to defend ourselves. Then consider and remember that each of the principle denizens of the belly of the beast, the main political leaders of Westminster and their puppets in Edinburgh, for surely they deserve no other title under these circumstances, have all stated that ‘of course, Scotland could be a successful independent country’.

These same political leaders have then gone on to bless "Project Fear". Perhaps not overtly or openly, but neither have they decried it, which at the least is tacit approval. And we all know the danger of mute inaction because as widely acknowledged; evil only wins when good folk don’t take a stand and speak out against it.

It’s also re-enforced by the fact that the threats and implied actions against the Scots aren't presently enacted against the Irish, who like us were also ‘engineered’ into this same union. It is not enacted, it would appear, simply because they've already left, though history tells us of  tactics utelised before they did.

It is said the best predictor of future behaviour is past behaviour. We should have good cause to expect similar treatment to the Irish, though like the Irish, we might expect it to take three quarters of a century.

Project Fear is quite simply a piece of planned work that will be finished over a period of time and is intended to achieve a particular aim. In the eyes of its architects, it will secure a ‘No’ vote in the upcoming referendum. Remembering of course, a referendum is a political event. ‘Project Fear’ is therefore decidedly an attempt to influence a political process through intimidation.

This leads to the fact that Project Fear is clearly an attempt by those pictured above to convince Scots that something dangerous, painful, or bad might, most likely will happen should they dare to vote ‘Yes’

Project Fear is therefore clearly state terrorism under this accepted interpretation. For like many political or religious extremists, it is carrying both the implied and overt threat of violent action for political purposes. What else can describe the almost 'hell on earth' which would be engendered in Scotland if every one of the dire utterances from, or on behalf of the Union were to play out after a successful independence vote.

It would clearly follow that the leaders of project fear are at worst terrorists under the literal meaning. It means those pictured above who might participate in such negative propaganda lie anywhere in the scope of this blog from real actual terrorists in the true Al Qaeda vein, to simply not very pleasant people; if one equates good people with pleasant people. If it were otherwise they’d surely be speaking with one voice and condemning ‘Project Fear’.

As to the role of the head of the state in all this? Surely a benevolent monarch should be decrying such tactics in ‘her’ land? In respect to the Queen, what will change, except perhaps Scotland’s financial contribution?

Finally, we have blackmail, for surely ‘Project Fear’ is blackmail, because it’s got every appearance of trying to force a particular course of action in order to avoid the threat of, or actual personal harm.

Personally I believe Scots to be a bit better than to submit to blackmail, terrorism, or other such attempts at coercion. 
In addition, I believe we’re overall a worthy, competent and conscientious folk more than capable of building our own home and living peacefully in the village of nations. 

Meantime, consider those above; the actions, words and deeds emanating from the London Parliament and its supporters, and decide for yourself if a no vote is a vote in support of terrorism, blackmail and fear?

There is no grey area, if you decide that’s what’s happening, a NO vote is simply a vote to support state sponsored terrorism and blackmail.

  1. Well said Hazel. This notion has lurked in the back of my mind for a while now. Thanks for articulating it so well.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to read and respond. It has been increasingly troubling to me and mine these last few months, and this is the only conclusion that seemed to make sense.

  3. Excellent article, Hazel, and the recent rantings of Lamont propagating the notion that all free thinking Scots who would vote for independence are somehow infected with a virus takes the diabolical poisonous outpourings of Project Fear to a new low. Lamont should remember a large and increasing percentage of her own party's core voters intend to vote YES in the referendum - is she now calling her own supporters unclean contagion carriers?
    Just as well the symptoms of the virus are in reality nothing to worry about, ie. Thinking for yourself, seeing the state of the country as it is and deciding to do something positive about it, like vote YES for an independent Scotland. If wanting free tuition for your offspring and a country rid of WMD, if wanting to look after your own affairs rather than be spoonfed drivel, austerity, and increasing poverty, is a virus, then I'm glad I'm contaminated.
    No matter what scare stories, lies, poison, propaganda, they come out with, Better Together and it's Project Fear, along with Blue Labour and Blue Tory, are the ones who are running scared. The Project's not working.

    1. Oh, yes, the nasty little virus comment slipped my mind as I wrote. But you are correct. I think as the exclamations of doom and despair become increasingly frequent and outrageous, Scots will turn their backs on the negativity and nonsense in favour of the positivity of hope and aspirations.
      Thanks for taking the time to read and comment.

  4. Very good article Hazel you are spot on with your analysis of the situation.
    Are we up against a Stacked Deck given they have 100% control of the Media ever single piece of information we get is from the establishment.

    1. Thanks James. The deck is certainly stacked high against the independence movement. All we can do is blog and share.

  5. Hazel,

    Thanks for the article.

    It seems a long time ago since I originally thought that those that were against independence had a substantial financial stake in denying it. I have seen nothing that would alter my opinion on that.

    It is up to people like me, small people, to take this opportunity like a bull by the horns.

    Best wishes.
