If TM and her advisors have mis-calculated, the extra 14 days will have been for nothing and all hell will break loose in this once great country. The stupid, ignorant arrogance of the political classes will be exposed. That raw open wound will be torn even wider by their public school dormitory fondlings and it will seep a festering poisonous puss across this formerly peaceful land.
This will be taken advantage of by many minority groups intent on settling old scores and it will be ugly. I am not talking about the groups in Westminster but everywhere else. If she thinks the worst of it lies within those hallowed halls, she is truely ill-advised and deluded. Leaving the EU or the permanent separation of the nations or the re-unification of Ireland or mainland regionalisation and multiple other permutations will be her legacy. The UK will become unrecognisable and every manouvre engineered to protect the Tory Party will only result in its resounding pointlessness under this country's new management.
I do see this as one way to overcome the reticence of so many of my fellow Scots to see sense but a free Scotland created as an unintended consequence of Westminster machinations, is the wrong way to go about it. Hopefully Scotland will learn from this that the EU shenanigans and chincanery is the root cause and Scotland should not provide an enclave on these islands, certainly not one where an EU wide military could have a presence that owes more to 1930s German politics than 21st century democracy. Does Nicola think this would be a good thing?
We have a shrunken military and inefectual police force on these islands and millions of very angry people, do the math TM! The Gilet Jaune example will be a side note in history by comparison. What will tomorrow bring? I've got my axe, my hard hat and I don't need troosers or a kilt. Bring it on Jimmy.
My prediction for 2019 is that a distinct lack of calm will descend that will last until April, at least. Ugliness will ensue. Then we will get over it and enjoy the rest of the year. Until Christmas, when a distinct lack of calm will descend that will last until 2020…
