I really must protest. (Notification of protest letter attached, as is a photograph of me protesting about the same thing in 2004)
The 3rd session of the Scottish Parliament has got off to just as bad a start as the previous two sessions.
You were not long in the door of the parliament before you were all swearing allegiance to Queen Elizabeth instead of to the Scottish people whom you should be serving but whom you seem to have turned your backs on already.
You’ve sold the people out for the Queen at the outset and now it seems you are intent on rubbing the Scots’ noses in your betrayal of us Scots in favour of Elizabeth by inviting that woman to address you in parliament on 30th June.
I can only assume that you have been very poorly educated and informed in your lives - but Queen Elizabeth has no right to be head of state of Scots as she has not been elected by the people of Scotland. For that reason and as experience of her unjust courts, her brutal police and her harsh prisons has taught those Scots who have dared to raise their voices in dissent, or dared to disobey her state, the Queen’s rule is undemocratic and an affront to the dignity of Scots.
You were elected - you should have rights to rule democratically in Scotland - the Queen was NOT elected and she should have no rights in our affairs - but the 3rd session of parliament seems intent on surrendering your rights, and those of the people of Scotland, over to her, Queen Elizabeth.
Therefore already the 3rd session of parliament is an embarrassment and a disgrace to the proud nation of Scotland with this display of the oppression of our nation under the Queen and under the royalist, fascist police state which serves the Queen and oppresses the people.
So I intend to protest against Queen Elizabeth attending parliament on the 30th June and if there is any single one of you who does not wish to be seen to betray the Scottish people then I suggest that you do not sit there like royalist lackeys listening to Queen Elizabeth but instead you PROTEST against the Queen and against the stupidity of your fellow MSPs for inviting that Elizabeth to rule Scotland when she has no business and no competence so to do.
Or if you are not brave enough to join me in protest then at least make your excuses for the 30th June and avoid sitting there before the Queen like royalist fools.
Do you honestly believe that you have yourselves a free parliament when in the 2nd session, 4 MSPs were banned from parliament for a whole month for daring to protest in parliament?
Those MSPs were not free to protest in parliament and you too may be denied the right to speak your mind or protest in parliament; denied ultimately by this Queen and by her officers who are loyal to her but disloyal to the freedoms of the Scots.
If you as a privileged member of parliament are not free to speak out and protest in parliament as you see fit - think how much more difficult it is for the rest of us Scots when we wish to speak out in protest. Very difficult.
Difficult though it may be, I as a proud Scot am not simply willing to surrender my freedoms and those of my nation to Queen Elizabeth and her state. Therefore I do intend to protest outside parliament on the 30th, even if you will not protest inside parliament.
You may be willing to betray the Scots for that Queen - I am not.
