On 18 September 2014 the people of Scotland have an unprecedented opportunity to vote for independence from the UK in a referendum. The secret cloned leader of Better Together, campaigning for Scotland to stay part of the UK, who bears a striking resemblance to a certain infamous gentleman, is not happy that the Lady Alba video (a Lady Gaga Bad Romance spoof in support of Yes Scotland’s campaign for independence) has gone viral. He fears for the future of neoliberalism, as an independent Scotland, run by a progressive left, could demonstrate to the world that ditching neoliberalism is not only possible but hugely beneficial. The things he mentions (linked below) provide evidence for this. Please have a look, and if you believe in a more informed and equal world, please help this go viral. Help Scotland put an end to neoliberalism!
