UDI – unfair to the people, a catastrophe for eternity

2nd Referendum – a mathematical and statistical nightmare which could end The Dream of Independence.

Dear First Minister,

Our most sincere gratitude for everything you are doing for the people of Scotland. In terms of potential future Independence we are very happy to see that you have very wisely urged calm restraint.

Given the existence of the scope and workings of The Charter, we suggest that any fellow politician who desires Independence via UDI or a 2nd Referendum, is either having difficulty embracing facts, or has motivations which are against the best interests of the people of Scotland.

The physical workings of The Charter have capability to deliver Scotland’s Independence via a peaceful democratic resolution, using cutting-edge modern era online technology.
There is no other mechanism in worldwide existence, which can more accurately or more fairly measure the will of a nation’s people.

The case against UDI:

If there is an SNP Holyrood May 2016 majority, there is an ability for you to make a Unilateral Declaration of Independence. This could be actioned without a majority population vote. Having a majority of MP’s however, still doesn’t constitute a majority of the population.

Anyone who is currently advocating UDI without population majority would do well to invest time in researching the lessons of history. Kosovo is a relevant place to start.

In Scotland’s case, UDI without prior population majority could potentially set existing and future generations of Scots against each other. Rich against poor, and vice versa. Those who have no material assets against the privileged and entitled, and vice versa. Nobody wants to see carnage on the streets of Scotland. The potential of in-bred Scottish terrorism would also be a very real possibility.

If UDI was delivered without the formalised integrity of a fully secured and authenticated prior population majority, our politicians would be exposing Scotland to the potential of a recurring and growing replication of the appalling events which were witnessed in George Square on 19th Sept 2014. Our politicians need to safely remove that deeply concerning possibility, and the only way to do that is by firstly delivering a population majority.

UDI would also set The Westminster Establishment completely against having as civilised a conversation as is possible, in relation to the apportioning of debt and splitting of assets. There are also those within Scotland’s wealthy elite who would perhaps feel justification in doing everything possible to disrupt any such processes.

A prior population majority would remove any legitimacy for any such objections, and would pave the way for fully legitimate grounds to argue for Scotland’s very best interests.

UDI without a prior population majority would see a divided country continue to be divided. Nobody wants to see one side blaming the other side for the rest of time. If we are to see future generational harmony and a truly non-divided Scotland, all politicians need to work much more cleverly than simply delivering UDI without a prior population majority.

UDI without a prior population majority would be politically irresponsible, and completely disrespectful to Scotland’s entire population.

More succinctly put, the politicians categorically need to deliver a population majority first, then the path is entirely legitimately open for UDI. A defined population majority would thereafter remove any possible idealistic justification for anything other than peaceful and logical acceptance from the entire country.

The case against a 2nd Referendum:

Quebec had a 2nd Referendum, which their YES campaign lost by a heartbreaking 0.4%, and after that happened the YES campaign lost their momentum and enthusiasm.

We simply cannot afford to see that devastating circumstance happen to Scotland.

Anyone who is currently campaigning for a successful 2nd Referendum would do very well to very carefully contemplate the mathematics which are in this case completely unique to Scotland’s circumstances.

We all know that Scotland’s No voters were very resilient and extremely stubborn with their perspectives. Whilst it is true that many voted No with strongly held negative beliefs despite the existence of superior evidence to the contrary, there is however no evidence today to suggest that particular section of the electorate would now vote Yes. That certainly cannot be presumed.

We have calculated that even if as many as 1 in 10 No voters were to now switch to YES (some 200,000 of them in total), that would unfortunately still be totally insufficient to deliver a majority.

If we are to go even further and above all of those additional 200,000 switching No voters above, we then add a simply incredibly optimistic 30% of previous non-voter turnout, (some 200,000 of them as well!), all of that combined would unfortunately also still leave a Referendum majority shortfall.

The YES campaign would still need a further 100,000 Scots!!!

Staggering, isn’t it just. But those are the unavoidable facts.

Never mind the YES campaign endeavouring to deliver a decisive 2014 majority. The fact of the matter is that the Referendum was lost by 500,000 voters, a very significant section of Scotland’s 4.3M electorate, heading 12%.

In order to create a 2nd Referendum majority, we would be interested to hear where any politician thinks these voters will come from?

500,000 of them? They certainly won’t appear from thin air.

Fundamentally, we cannot proceed with another Referendum until the politicians can guarantee a successful outcome.

Underlined, our figures are also merely stated at ‘achieving a majority’, as opposed to ‘achieving a decisive majority’, which is another matter entirely.

There is talk of beginning a 2nd Referendum process ‘when the polls are at 60%’ …? That would constitute 2.6M YES votes. To achieve that would require half of all previous No voters to be confirmed as switching to YES. That assumption would be ridiculous beyond belief. Any politician who thinks that Scotland’s future can be gambled on that assumption, is mathematically and statistically illiterate.

Without even beginning to highlight the archaic structure of the Referendum process itself, or the fact that it completely excludes entire sections of society, we would suggest to anyone who is currently thinking of supporting another Referendum, that the only way to guarantee success is to perhaps formally introduce the services of Paul Daniels.

On that combined basis, as a majority of Scots under the age of 55 are apparently pro-Indy, if there is to be a 2nd Referendum it would be best to simply sit back and wait for a generation. And what could happen in the intervening time? Who knows, but one thing for sure, Scotland’s Black Gold will have been further depleted.

The case for The Charter:

The Charter on the other hand provides a completely safe and calm alternative. It can also be introduced without delay.

All pro-Indy politicians will do very well to fully recognise that only 37% of Scotland’s electorate actually turned out to vote YES in 2014’s Referendum. To deliver a majority will require dedicated and incredibly focussed political commitment, graft, and education.

The true will of the people who do desire Independence will categorically require to be warmly and sufficiently embraced, in addition to No voters who have since changed their minds, by those who didn’t vote, and those who weren’t registered to vote. THAT, is what can successfully deliver Scotland’s majority.

Two mathematical representative examples are pasted below. We suggest these are contemplated on a line-by-line basis.

The first explains why a 2nd Referendum could be a tragedy on an unimaginable scale. The second explains how by introducing Scotland’s Charter and proceeding in a completely risk-free, calm and measured way, a majority can easily be delivered, on the proviso that is indeed of course what the will of the people actually is.

We underline as well, The Charter seeks to deliver a majority of the entire 100% of the electorate, in contrast to the 2014 Referendum which only involved a voter turnout of 84.2% of the electorate. Compared to a Referendum, the Charter process therefore resonates with a much deeper and longer-lasting integrity.

The Referendum question wasn’t even of appeal in itself to 15.8% of the population, whereas The Charter would very much seek to constructively engage with each and every one of those 663,477 non-voters.

The Charter is also completely holistically inclusive, reaching out to those on the very fringes of society. These are Scotland’s previously non-registered voters, whose numbers may be approaching 140,000 people. All of these people can each individually become a most valuable part of The Charter’s ability to deliver Independence. That is the very essence of our nation’s complete community involvement.

The mathematics and statistics are crystal clear. If the Will of the people is to be expressed as a clear majority, when compared to a Referendum, The Charter is statistically much more likely to enable that success, as follows:

– All previous YES voters firstly initiate with their own online YES votes

There begins the most holistically inclusive event which Scotland has ever seen. A ground-breaking and inventive modern era process which will set a very proud worldwide example.

– If 1 in 3 YES voters can encourage a previous non-voter, or a previous non-registered voter, or a new voter, or a proportion of switching previous no voters, to place an online YES, we would already be tremendously close to seeing a majority.

– It is clearly the people who will encourage the other people to vote. This will primarily be via compulsory download White Paper education. The better The First Minister and Operation Executive’s updated plans for currency and centralised banking, the better and quicker the prospects. If centralised banking is Ethical, that would also help.

– The Charter remains online until majority is delivered. There is no specified end date until The White Paper either expires or renews.

– As and when a majority is delivered, The Charter can then continue to accumulate votes ‘from those who wish to jump on the train before it leaves the station’ – if an online majority has already occurred there would be many at that point who would wish to be able to be a part of the immediate future as well as demonstrating to their future generations, that they had personally individually been a part of the Independence movement. It is very important indeed that whilst an established majority could be celebrated, it must then be followed however by a timeline gap before our First Minister formally makes the UDI, as this gap is where there is scope to see a majority becoming a very decisive majority, in a joyful process which celebrates what then would be established as already inevitable. The longer the gap, the greater the %. The greater the %, the better for Scotland. After a majority, an end date can be advance notified, so that all remaining YES voters are aware of the urgency to formalise their online vote and physically make their act of patriotism.

– Scotland’s First Minister then decides the correct time and day to announce UDI. (Please check the weather forecast, as it would be lovely to see Scotland in sunshine for the ensuing celebratory images on the front pages of all of the world’s newspapers!)

There are 10 phased stages which Scotland’s Government can implement to deliver the population majority. We list them below.

We kindly request that you please let us know the views of the SNP Operations Executive at the earliest possible convenience.

Kindest regards,

SCOTLAND’S CHARTER, our online accumulating vote.

As easy as This. Ten Government Steps to deliver Independence

  1. There’s no bureacratic delays, as The Charter does not require to be in any Party Manifesto, it could be instructed in fairly immediate terms
  1. The Charter is merely ‘a fully secured and verifiable no end date online modern era platform on which we can totally accurately assess and measure the will of the people, in terms of the people themselves expressing what appears to be a growing desire for Independence’
  1. Enable The Charter. Make it the coolest website a Government has ever delivered, dripping with technology and modern era user-friendly social media sharing features
  1. Tell Scotland: ‘We will now accurately measure the will of the people.

If there is an online majority this will then enable our First Minister to make a Unilateral Declaration of Independence’

  1. Tell Scotland: ‘In order to deliver an online majority, all previous YES voters are going to have to join together as one, and encourage as many others as possible, to go ahead and place a YES vote’
  1. Tell Scotland: ‘Previous YES voters can encourage the following groups to vote (a) non-voters (b) non-registered voters (c) new voters (d) previous No voters who have perhaps now changed their minds
  1. Tell Scotland: ‘In addition to the 45% previous YES voters, to physically deliver a majority all we have to do is see an additional 12 Hampden Park size crowds to join, and vote YES. Achieving a majority will however clearly depend on the Drive and Passion of the original 45% YES voters, in what can be holistically envisaged as the most inclusive community event which Scotland has ever seen’
  1. Updated White Paper goes online. We need much greater clarity on currency, and centralised Scottish bank
  1. A massive build-up to launch day
  1. Charter goes live early summer 2016, traditionally one of the happiest times of year
