Friends and readers.
We at Pilton Sucks always try whenever possible to bring you a little something different, something that you would not get from normal media sources, and the great strength amongst many that Sucks pocesses is the strange ability to link past and present, entertaining our wide and growing readership whilst at the same time opening their eyes to what they have may not seen before.
So once again we offer our friends and readers a little taste of history which has some remarkable similarities to the present huge constitutional issue we have before us. Let us take you back a few years to around 1789 and the start of the French revolution.
The French revolution was a period of radical and social upheaval in France from 1789 to 1799 that profoundly affected French and modern history, marking the decline of powerful monarchies and churches and the rise of democracy and nationalism. Popular resentment of the priviledges enjoyed by the aristocracy and their hangers on grew amidst a financial crisis following two expensive wars and years of bad harvests, motivating demands for change.
These were couched in terms of Enlightenment ideals and caused the convocation of the Estates-General in May 1789. The first year of the Revolution saw members of the Third Estate taking control, the assault on the Bastille in July, the passage of the declaration of the rights of man and the citizen in August, and a march on Versailles that forced the royal court back to Paris in October.
A central event of the first stage was the abolition of feudalism and the old rules, taxes, courts and privileges left over from the age of feudalism on 4th August 1789. The next stage was dominated by struggles between various Liberal assemblies and right wing supporters of the Monarchy intent on thwarting major reforms. A republic was proclaimed in September 1792. In a momentous event that led to international condemnation King Louis 14th was executed on 21st January 1793.
Now dear friends can you spot the similarities between then and now. The privileges enjoyed by the elite, the ruling classes running things to suit themselves and their friends, and the monarchy sitting right on top of the pile. Of course this may be just a pure coincidence, or is it? Right now we have the political chattering classes sitting in an ancient chamber in Westminster fighting to preserve their way of life, I.E, the privileges they enjoy and that of the ruling class. They are fighting for the status quo where the immense divide between rich and poor continues to grow and in which social inequalities are vast. We have them now making promises you know in your hearts they will not keep, but watered down until they are worthless and meaningless.
The three not so wise men Cameron, Miliband and Clegg are pillars of the establishment and it’s extremely doubtful if they have ever had a real job between them. They are fighting alongside the class traitors of a Labour party which sold out to the Establishment years ago and are now just another right of centre political cabal, they cannot and must not be trusted. The rest of them are just going along for the ride trying to protect their own jobs and cushy way of life. We are not being represented in that chamber of horrors in London, we are being played for mugs and have been swallowing the medicine they have dished out since Oliver Cromwell lit his last fire with an ancient copy and forerunner of the Guardian.
Vote no in Thursday’s referendum and these political mercenaries will be back in Westminster before you can blink, churning out the same old shit while continuing to rape this nation. Her Majesty who has allegedly steered clear of getting involved was deliberately overheard saying that people should think carefully before casting their vote, replace that with no, which is really what she wanted to say. So the monarchy has at last come out in favour of retaining their privileges and position in society. So they have clubbed together this unholy alliance to crush any potential revolt and retain the Union which has served them so well to the detriment of the weak, poor and vulnerable in our society. Labour won’t change that, they don’t want to they are spineless and offer nothing different to the present hammering of the citizens, that’s your no campaign, threaten, blackmail and bribery and if all else fails get Lizzie to stick her tuppence worth in that should do the trick.
Vote yes in Thursday’s referendum and maybe just maybe there’s a chance for a new beginning, free of privilege for the few and punishment for the many. We the people can then get control over our own affairs with a Government elected by the people for the people in the true sense, and no more Tories, imagine if you will the most awful thought of the dreadful Ruth Davidson lording it over us as her cronies claim victory for the elite, that in itself would make you vote yes. Worse still was listening to Darling and Brown threatening to stand as MSP candidates, who the hell wants them, even their own comrades would choke on that thought. The patronising Darling and the hate filled Brown have subjected us to threat after threat and that’s the same two munchkins who tell us that they love their country. They love themselves and the wages that go with it. This yes campaign has grown from the grass roots, from every community in the country, never before have the people been more politically active and how the ruling classes hate and fear it, for above all it’s the people who have the real power, and it’s we who have abdicated real power in favour of those who promise much but deliver little.
Such was their confidence and arrogance that Scotland would vote no that they stayed in their shires and country piles and waited on the result they thought was a certainty. Well fuck them as the country has mobilised as never before and might never again. So this is your chance to say yes or no, but please vote, you must vote. This is your time in history, this is your moment to decide on change or more of the same. Come Thursday 10pm it will be all over and we will have decided, we just wait on the result. Let’s hope that it’s the right one.
