HOW LONDON TREATS ITS COLONIES

The First World War helped to make the peoples of Australia, Ireland, India and Scotland more keen on independence.

In the First World War, the mortality rate for the British Army was 12 per cent.

But for Scottish troops the mortality rate was 26 per cent.


The UK military used crucifiction as a punishment. THE EVIL MILITARY


In 1913, in the UK House of Commons, a bill to give Scotland independence passed its second reading.

But it got no further than that.

London does not like to lose its colonies.

The people of Glasgow wanted better conditions. theglasgowstory.com

In 1919, a Scottish trade union opposed the abolition of rent restrictions and wage controls.

It organised a 40 hour strike.

The London government sent 12,000 troops, six tanks and lots of machine-guns to Glasgow.

Tanks in Glasgow, in 1919, ready to shoot the people.

"A 4.5 inch Howitzer was positioned at the City Chambers, the cattle market was transformed into a tank depot, Lewis Guns were posted on the top of the North British Hotel and the General Post Office, armed troops stood sentry outside power stations, docks and patrolled the streets." - Battle of George Square - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

People got hurt.

"The seriousness of the government's intent can be gauged from Regulation 965 about how to deal with 'civil unrest': 'It is undesirable that firing should take place over the heads of the rioters or that blank ammunition should be used.'" - BBC NEWS.


The Cairo Gang.

In 1920, in Ireland, London government security agents called the Cairo Gang were killing civilians.

The London government's secret agents fired into a crowd at a Dublin football match, killing 14 people.



In 1919, in India, the British military massacred around 1,000 non-violent protesters at Amritser.


Glasgow housing

The London government allowed Scotland's industries - shipbuilding, textiles, steel and heavy engineering - to wither and die.

After World War I, unemployment remained much higher in Scotland than in England.

  5. I'm sure there are a lot of people in England who would like to get rid of the London Gov too. I was thinking about that Lady Di quote; "there are dark forces at the heart of british politics."
    We all need to get rid of the demons that torment us.
