We All Gotta Do What We Can ;o{

 

A few of  #thebairnsintheback seem surprised that the driver  navigators and crew have plotted a course in advance and are going about their business in a cool calm, deliberate, understated and statesmanlike way…

Wha wi’da thunk’it eh?

Professionals acting professionally… sticking to the rules and following process and procedure as a part of a planned strategy… which a few indy social media influencers and bleaters seem to find frustrating for some strange reason… hopefully they’ll grow out of it pretty sharpish… as the plays rapidly unfold in the coming days, weeks and months…

This has been and will continue to be a dance of improvisation… some set moves prepared in advance… the tune and melody are familiar and the main participants have done this waltz before… but… they are not conducting the band…

It help’s if you’ve got a good ear and a sense of timing to anticipate any upcoming changes to the arrangement and/or rhythm and then be able to respond appropriately to the changes… also to wait for the change and not to commit too early and look an eejit…

There is much talk and opinion as to whether the SNP ‘missed the boat’ at the “now is not the time” time… who knows… but one thing is certain…

The spotlight has been firmly on the clusterfuck of Brexit… no distractions… there is nothing that the MSM or establishment has to counter with… An S30 at that time would have been a distraction…

It has also allowed a little more time for those not as committed as the rest of us, who have already bought our tickets and are seated comfortably, to consider the travelling conditions on the train they are currently on and many of them are not liking it and some are realising that it is not what they were originally promised…

Let’s be a bit more patient and wait for a few more to ‘get onboard’… the more people, the more mass, the more mass, the greater the velocity and power, allowing an arrival time to be guaranteed…

You gotta have faith and trust the driver and support staff…they’ve done pretty well up to now…it’s hardly time for a crew change… who else is there to replace them at the moment for goodness sakes!

Anyways will be great to see a river of Indy flowing through Edinburgh on the 5th… Can’t wait ;o{

“EVERY BATTLE IS WON OR LOST BEFORE IT IS EVEN FOUGHT.” [SUBDUE YOUR OPPONENT WITHOUT FIGHTING] #danceyirwaytaeindy ;o{

 

 

The Brexit storm  has given us the surprising opportunity of a second go at Independence.

Timing is everything.

“The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.”

We’re not having to do much at the moment…  all the ‘heavy lifting’ is being done for us by the ‘other’ side… great!

You can’t wave a mandate in front of anyones face until the conditions contained within it are actually met… we are not out of EU… yet… the material change has not happened.. yet…

The people we have to persuade are not ourselves remember…

If, as some would have had the Scot Gov do, we had applied for a S30 at the “now is not the time” time, it would have played right into the hands of those opposed to Indy… it would have been a distraction away from the Brexit clusterfuck we are now witnessing… the MSM and Tories would have had a field day…

Too much smoke on the battlefield… wait til’ it clears… get a better look and then decide the time to ‘pile_in’… in the meantime… let’s dance!

This more than likely will be our ‘last chance for a generation’… bare that in mind when listening to all the back seat drivers [the making moves for the future makers? ;o] who are  shouting directions and giving it the “when are we gonna get there? of bored bairns the world over, close to the end of long  journeys…

“Every battle is won or lost before it is even fought” and the current debacle is doing us no harm.

Everyone that bought a ticket for this journey knew the conditions of sale after the last  forced ‘refreshment break’ and although we’ve been waiting on the platform for a while most of us are comfortably seated with drinks, snacks and toilet facilities.

We’re just waiting on a few more disaffected passengers, fed up with the horrendous travelling conditions on the other line, to hop onboard, we’ll  get the ‘official’ flag and the whistle and this #independencetrain will be off and running again.

Aye… I can almost taste it… ;o{
