While the Scottish National Party offers genuine opposition to Tory austerity, what are the British parties in Scotland doing? They are all pursuing the same anti-SNP line. They are all obsessing about the ‘threat’ of a democratic referendum. They are all pushing the same frantic ‘stop the SNP!’ message.
None of the British parties in Scotland oppose Tory austerity. They don’t fight to end the imposition of these policies on Scotland by a party Scotland has repeatedly and decisively rejected at the polls. They demand that we accept these policies. They demand that we not only accept Tory austerity, but that we subsidise it through higher taxes or cuts to public services.
They set themselves against the only party that is providing effective opposition to the Tories whilst telling the people of Scotland that being part of the British state is such a privilege we should be happy to pay the ever increasing cost of mitigating the impact of the Tories’ socially corrosive and economically destructive policies.
It’s not Tory rule that’s the problem. It’s British rule. The British parties really are all in it together. Their election campaign in Scotland makes this obvious. Their speeches and their leaflets are entirely interchangeable. Their only concern is that Scotland should stop challenging the British state and get back in its box.
The choice facing voters in Scotland is not between the SNP and the Tories. It certainly isn’t between the Tories and Labour. We are being asked to choose between the SNP and a single British Nationalist pseudo-party. And if we get it wrong it may be the last real democratic choice we ever make. Because, make no mistake, the British parties in Scotland are far more opposed to democracy than to Tory austerity. That is the sole message of their election campaign.
