|Pawns become powerful pieces in any end game; Scottish separatist leader |
Alex Salmond knows this all too well....but is it enough to take down a
Red Queen from her powerful position as head of the UK state. 2014
VIVA! VIVA! The YES and NO - the Yin and Yang - the I Ching, Divination, Premonition , Prediction, Essentialism, Realism, Idealism, Existentialism and to sum it all up……The Book of Change…
It will never be the same after Thursday’s vote. Not for the UK and not for Europe. On one hand Westminster knows centralism is now gone….In Holyrood the Scots know this vote is a massive boost for the power of Democracy….In Brussels they must also know the will and nerve to change within the UK is carved from Grampian granite.
And this very nerve has powerful signals to send stretching across Europe from Span’s Leon to the Russian Donbass.
Centralism is no longer a given for Empire or Superstate but Confederate Democracy still has plenty of air to breath.
Salmond’s end game will be a master to watch. His move to check the opposition’s defense of Scottish right to self-determination by declaring no second referendum for a generation is a classic play to idle pawns called don’t knows pondering their response…a deciding response for check mate.
If self-determination fails who will be the voters to stand last man and claim it was their move which lost the end-game.
The Red players must carefully examine the chess board for their final moves, as must everyone else contemplating Empire, or Confederate Democracy.
