Why am I, am I there yet?

 
Why am I here? What is my purpose in life? These are both perfectly rational questions which every single human being will ponder at some point in their lives. For most people, these questions go largely unanswered. Ultimately, this lack of answers often leads to feelings of insignificance and disappointment. But what if someone told you that you DO have a purpose and that you ARE significant?

Ponder

Life is over in the blink of an eye. The only things to remain are events in time, which are forever consigned to the history books for future generations to reflect back on. The ancient Egyptians, the rise and fall of the Roman Empire, the great fire of London and the American Revolution are all good examples of significant periods in history.

We are currently living throughout one of those significant periods right now – which is the fall of the British Empire. Throughout history, the United Kingdom of Great Britain has invaded and conquered other lands, often leaving a trail of bloodshed in its wake, true still to this current day. However, since World War 2, the union has been crumbling, as more and more countries have sought their independence from Westminster rule.

In 1939, Canada, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand were the first to be given independence within the Commonwealth. Since then a total of 62 countries have gained independence from the United Kingdom.

Scotland voted in 2014 to reject its independence from the UK by only the slimmest of margins. A swing of just 200,000 votes would have seen a Yes result instead. One of the most compelling arguments made by the Better Together campaign was that if Scotland had chosen to leave the UK, it would lose its EU membership and would have had to re-apply. Little were voters to know that, less than two years later, the UK would hold a vote which would force Scotland to lose it’s EU membership anyway.

Since the Brexit result was announced, the Scottish Government has secured a triple locked mandate to hold a second independence referendum. Not only has Brexit been chaotic, but it has also highlighted to people in Scotland that it is not treated as an equal partner within the UK union. Sadly, this has always been the case, but many people are only now becoming aware of it.

Consequently, there has been a significant shift in appetite for Scottish Independence. Those who voted no in 2014 are now thinking about that decision, with more and more admitting to having since changed their minds.

Saltire – fist of hope

 

Independence is also gaining popularity in both Wales and Northern Ireland, the latter being increasingly supportive of leaving the union and gaining unification with the Republic of Ireland.

Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland

 

Nicola Sturgeon, later today, may or may not announce a second referendum but Theresa May, Ruth Davidson and the Scottish Conservative Party have already reached the conclusion that a referendum is inevitable. They’ve been investing heavily towards campaigning against an IndyRef2 over the past few months but, despite this, support for independence continues to grow steadily.

The fall of the British Empire is now increasingly realistic. More importantly though, YOU are here to witness a significant period in history and YOU can play a big part in making it happen.

The power is in your hands. Make sure that you use it.
