David Cameron in Edinburgh yesterday: "This is where I stand, here in this great and beautiful capital, an English politician in a Scottish city saying clearly today and for all time that Britain comes first."
Ooh, strangely bursting with pride about Edinburgh this "English politician", isn't he? One would almost think he was Scottish. Perhaps that's because he is. Scottishness is a state of mind, like Englishness or Welshness, and Cameron, who brags about ancestors who were "Scottish Empire builders" "conquering all sorts of parts of India" and "Scottish blood" (there's no such thing) in his veins, is clearly not English.
And so, in his speech in Edinburgh yesterday, Mr Cameron underlined his plans for the English under his government:
1) England can NOT expect an end to health apartheid if it threatens the Union. Just go on dieing or going blind or suffering with your cancers, dears.
2) England can NOT expect an end to the Barnett Formula if it threatens the Union - just go on forking out and getting crumbs in return, dears.
3) England can NOT expect an end to the West Lothian Question if it threatens the Union - just go on accepting dictates, dears.
And then Mr Cameron tried to crawl up the backsides of the Welsh - claiming a Welshman designed the NHS - (the English had nothing to do with the concept, did they, dears?) and ignoring the fact that the NHS no longer exists. Health apartheid is rampant. The "NHS" in England is NOT the same NHS as in Scotland or the same NHS as in Wales!!
David Cameron does not give a damn about England. He doesn't care if you die in England for want of medication available on the NHS in Scotland, or scrimp and save for vital prescriptions free to millionaires in Wales. He does not speak for you. I cannot help wondering if the guy is suffering from some sort of mental illness, so blinkered and jaundiced is his view, so uncaring, insensitive and basically racist is his outlook.
But he can't be as mad as the Conservative Party. Is the gravy train so comfortable that its MPs never want the bother of governing again? What on earth are they playing at, letting David Cameron lead them?
