The Celtic whingers fringe meets today.
The First and Deputy First Ministers will meet their Scottish and Welsh counterparts in Edinburgh on Tuesday. The trilateral meeting at Bute House will be hosted by Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond and Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon. Peter Robinson and Martin McGuinness will attend along with the First Minister of Wales Carwyn Jones. The talks will focus on areas where there is a “shared agenda” between the three regions.
I think there is a shared agenda between the three “regions” and it can be summarised as follows;
1. It’s about squeezing as much cash out of England as possible. Think Oliver Twist eternally asking for “more”.
2. It’s about ensuring that England takes the brunt of the austerity cuts. Nationalism does not “do” financial responsibility.
3. It’s about dissolving the Union. Scotland wants out, NI seeks to be part of a Federalised Ireland and who knows what the Welsh want?
Perhaps the bluff of these whinging Nationalists of all hues could be called if the Barnett Formula for dispersal of English wealth to the fringes was suspended and they were made to stand on their own economic feet? WHY should English taxpayers fund freebies for Celtic Nationalism?
