The British plan to steal Scotland's independence referendum by Wayne Madsen

The British plan to steal Scotland's independence referendum

WMR's informed British sources have revealed that the British government, which includes the Conservative and Liberal Democratic parties, as well as the Labor opposition, have colluded with the British media to downplay in articles, news broadcasts, and published opinion polls the actual strength of the pro-independence "Yes" campaign in Scotland. On September 18, Scotland will vote in a referendum on whether or not to seek independence from the United Kingdom, thus ending its 307-year old union with England. The hyped news reports, including "news" about a looming terrorist threat and a new royal baby, as well as skewed polling numbers, according to our sources, is to prepare the country for a razor-thin loss for the pro-independence "Yes" vote in an election result for which Americans and others have become all-too-familiar.

WMR has learned that a few months ago, the British government instructed the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) in a confidential document to undermine at every opportunity the Yes vote, especially when interviewing Scottish voters. There is a strong belief that other British networks and newspapers, including Rupert Murdoch's Sky News and the Times of London, received the same instruction and obediently carried it out.

Our sources report that the actual "Yes" for independence vote is leading the "No" vote by a full 11 percentage points. That means the actual number of Scots who will be voting in Scotland and are already doing so from abroad via postal vote, is in the absolute majority range of 60 percent.

This wave of support for independence, which is being led by the Scottish National Party government First Minister of Scotland Alex Salmond, has sent shock waves through the City of London banking infrastructure, parliament, Number 10 Downing Street, the British intelligence agencies, and Buckingham Palace. 

In a classic "carrot and stick" strategy, British Prime Minister David Cameron and his ministers promised increased powers for the Scottish parliament, Holyrood, in return for continued union with the UK, while also using the fear factor to frighten Scotland into submission. Cameron raised the terrorist threat level to the second highest category in response to an alleged plot by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) to carry out attacks in Britain as a way to convince Scottish voters they were safer inside the UK. 

There is concern on both sides of the Scottish border that the British government might stage a terrorist incident a day or two before the September 18 referendum. Whatever would be planned is said to be designed to unite the entire UK in grieving just before the referendum, thus swinging Yes votes to the No column.

The alarm bells on Scotland actually voting to become independent were not sounded until polls showed the election tightening. In 2013, every media poll showed the Yes campaign losing by a double digit margin to the unionists. The always dubious polling numbers of American polling "expert" Nate Silver, a former DailyKos groupie, showing that the independence supporters had "no chance," were used to bolster the anti-independence campaign.

The No forces are now in such a quandary over polls showing the Yes campaign being slightly ahead of the pro-unionists that they have asked for Queen Elizabeth II to intervene and speak out against Scottish independence. However, Salmond has pointed out that Elizabeth II will remain as the Queen of Scots because Scottish voters are not being asked to dissolve the 1603 "Union of Crowns" but only the 1707 "Act of Union" between the English and Scottish parliaments. 

The City of London banking community, which is implanted with Rothschild family and George Soros financial manipulators, has warned, in concert with the British Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne, that an independent Scotland will be tossed out of the pound sterling currency union and face an economy without the pound. The pre-referendum drop in value of the British pound appears to be manipulated and there is no better person in the world of currency manipulation than Mr. Soros, who became a billionaire by shorting currencies. 

The British government's friends at the European Union headquarters in Brussels have warned Scotland that it will have to reapply for EU membership, something that will take a number of years and be subject to a veto of just one member, for example, the rump United Kingdom of England, Wales, and Northern Ireland, which will remain a member. 

Britain's intelligence and NATO allies have also been called upon to weigh in with comments about the dire problems if Scotland votes to break the union. Among the leaders who have abandoned neutrality and come to London's defense are U.S. President Barack Obama, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, and Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott. Scotland has been told that it will be expelled from the FIVE EYES intelligence alliance of the U.S., UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand until it "proves" itself as a trustworthy intelligence ally. Never mind the fact that Scots make up a majority of the British MI-6 Secret Intelligence Service ranks and are among the best analysts and cryptographers within Britain's NSA counterpart, the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ). By keeping "Releasable to GBR" within the FIVE EYES pact and refusing to consider a "Releasable to SCO" caveat, the FIVE EYES will effectively become "FOUR AND A HALF EYES."

India's External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, a Zionist version of Indira Gandhi, when asked about the prospect of Scotland's independence, responded, "God forbid!"

Knowledgeable British sources say that massive election manipulation, including tampering with the absentee postal votes, is what is in store for Scotland on referendum day. There will be an attempt by London to manipulate the vote to show a razor-thin loss for the Yes vote in what could be a 50.1 percent vote for "No" to independence to a 49.9 percent vote to "Yes." Current polls that include the undecided voters show 51%-49% in favor of Yes to independence. The vote will be immediately declared by the media and British government to be "conclusive" as the "will of the Scottish people." Of course, any suggestion that the vote was rigged will be immediately be discounted as an unfounded "conspiracy theory."

Canada's Harper seemed to be peeling away at what the FIVE EYES have in store for Scotland when he said he expected the Scots to reject independence in the same manner as Quebecois rejected independence in a 1995 referendum by a very close and likely rigged 50.6 percent to 49.2 percent vote. What primarily killed Quebec independence was the influence of Montreal's influential anglophone Jewish community, coupled with the anti-independence media empire of Zionist media tycoon Izzy Asper, all of which actively campaigned against independence and were well-armed with their media ownership and money. Scotland has seen the same influences gathering steam from the City of London banks to the Murdoch-owned newspapers and networks and the Guy Zitter-ownedDaily Mail.

In 1974, this editor received a handwritten letter from a young and little-known Scottish independence student activist on Scottish National Party stationery bearing a blue combined Scottish saltire and thistle logo. The letter, which was an answer to an inquiry from this political science undergraduate about the chances of Scottish independence, spelled out why a free Scotland was not such a far-out idea at a time when most people would have scoffed at the notion. That letter was signed, "your friend, Alex Salmond." The author of that letter now stands to become the first Prime Minister of Scotland, but only in a free and fair referendum, which is now looking increasingly doubtful.

Breaking English colonial chains is an uphill battle even for a movement that has majority support in Scotland.

Scotland needs a miracle to save it from the continued clutches of a devious colonial infrastructure in London. Even in a Celtic land of enchantment like Scotland, that sort of miracle may be a long shot.
