Hi, I’m new here, so my apologies if this is posted in the wrong place. As the topic is relevant to the future of the UK, i thought it best to start at the UK group of messages.
Given that 45% in Scotland said YES to independence, after a tsunami of British state propaganda, negative campaigning & fear-mongering descended upon Scottish voters, where does the Uk Meritocracy Party stand on having a seperate Scottish Meritocracy Party?
I understand many here have done a lot of hard work in setting up the UK Party, and in no way do I wish to undermine that. I do think though that you have to take into account that ‘Better Together’ narrowly won the Scottish Referendum by the most underhand tactics we’ve seen in a long time. Many who voted NO are starting to regret their decision already. At present, the support for YES stands at 52%, if another was held today.
As we have north of the border the SNP, Scottish Greens, SSP, these are the parties that you’ll see will win in May 2015 in Scotland. Home grown parties, independent of any UK equivilants. So I think there should be a Scottish Meritocrary Party if you really wish to win votes here. We won’t be voting for Liebour, The Tories, Lib-Dems or UKIP. Bear in mind, Scotland also has it’s own elections in 2016 for the Scottish parliament.
At present, I’m a member of the Scottish Greens. Even they are not radical enough in vision, though. I’ve been following the Meritocracy movement for about 2 years now. I started a group on seen.is called ‘The Movement’. Hopefully anyone who’s on there will check the group out & join. It’s a more secure alternative to Facebook, data-wise. If there was a Scottish Meritocracy Party I’d gladly join, or help set one up.
slainte mhor! ( Cheers! )
