Democracy In Action .

Unlike Germany where I live, UK did allow overseas European citizens living there ( all be it short term )  to vote in the Scottish YES / No ,vote .. May the fat cats of Brussels  take note next time they say how Britain  are the EU misfits .
Well what do I say to the result :-
GREAT, GREAT, GREAT BRITAIN lives to show democracy in action. A well run vote. No need for supervisors from outside sources .Yes I am proud to be British. Gordon Brown has shown us we do have a great statesman in him . The Labour party could do well to reconsider .
For now though let life settle down , no more division tactics by power seekers backed by the like of Murdoch.
I  had my celebration with an ice cream whilst wearing  the Red White and Blue !
Britain is a Union and as such stood firm during two World Wars. Britain never capitulated .We are not a number one power in the world and have no wish to be but rank high when it comes to fair play.
Pictured below the Union Flag and my celebration ice. Strawberry,Coconut, Blueberry , topped with Chocolate , cream and lots of red cherries . The dark brown chocolate is for Gordon Brown.

Scottish Vote ..How Valid ?

The vote for Scottish Independence draws near so I ask how valid will it be . 
Throughout the length and breadth of Great Britain there are numerous asylum seekers, European workers, Commonwealth citizens, plus students from overseas. These people will be allowed to vote and I ask 'why' ? 
Here in Germany , France etc are Scottish citizens who are never allowed to vote in such an event within Europe and are excluded from this forthcoming event in their home country.
I am not against the vote , so long as it is correctly administered .
a) all should hold a valid British Passport .
b) all should be Scottish .
c) all should speak and read the language .
Any not conforming to this criteria should be excluded .When Berlin voted on the future of Tempelhof Airport only German passport holders were allowed to vote, Note, to have a German passport you must speak German and pass a test about Germany.
Take note Britain on who votes and what their credentials are .

Voltaire A Man Of Vision.

"Let us read and let us dance - two amusements  that will never do any harm to the world"

Voltaire 1694-1778

If all those currently busy killing , bombing and generally behaving in a manner worthy only of mindless louts were to start actually enriching life by at the very least the above two named pursuits,what a wonderful world we may have for all .
