The political implications of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow

1:01 PM

Several people have asked me to write something about the politics and potential implications of the Commonwealth Games which open tonight in Glasgow. As is sometimes the case, I am happy to oblige.

There aren’t any.

To think otherwise is to insult the great Scottish public. I am often prepared to do this, not least because it often needs to be done but in this instance, and not for the first time, the people are liable to be more sensible than the pundits.

[Alt-Text]


Back in the day, it was sometimes claimed that the campaign for (modest) home rule in 1979 was scuppered by Scotland’s woeful (yet epic!) misadventure in the 1978 World Cup. I’ve always thought that theory insulted the electorate. It required one to believe that because Ally MacLeod was an ass, Scotland lacked the courage or conviction to do anything ‘right’.

Aye, right.

Similarly, the fate of the nation this September does not lie in the steady hands of Scotland’s lawn bowlers.

Glasgow will do splendidly. Scottish athletes will win more medals than we are accustomed to claiming at these jamborees. Everyone will have a good time. It will be jolly.

Then we will all go home and life will return to normal. To suppose otherwise is to insist that voters are incapable of appreciating that a quadrennial sporting entertainment has little bearing on a political decision that is, if you like, 300 years in the making. We may be many things but there is no requirement for us to be nincompoops.

    The most critical comments I have heard expressed, have been about the “swamping” ( to use a good Thatcherite term) of the BBC games coverage by a trainload of people up from England. There is hardly a Scot to be seen or heard on an event held entirely in Scotland. Quite ridiculous.

  • asalord

    Oh well, at least it looks like an independent Scotland will be in good financial shape:

    Investors Chronicle (part of the Financial Times group), 25 July 2014:

    “In the 12 months since we recommended EnQuest (ENQ) as a speculative buy
    option, the share price of the North Sea independent has oscillated
    within a relatively narrow range (-11p/+16p) either side of the current
    share price of 132p. The relative stability (or stagnation) of the share
    price – depending on your point of view – is partly attributable to
    repeat production delays on the Alma/Galia project.

    But oil from the 34m barrel development is now imminent, which will help to
    shore-up near-term sentiment, particularly if output is cranked-up in
    fairly short order. However, even beyond the immediate quest to bump-up
    EnQuest’s daily production volumes by another 13,000 barrels, the
    driller’s strategic focus on exploiting maturing assets and
    underdeveloped fields in the UK North Sea places it in an ideal position
    to benefit from likely regulatory reforms, and we recommend buying in
    anticipation.

    We think that Westminster has been deliberately downplaying the potential
    of the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) ahead of September’s referendum on
    Scottish independence.

    The Department of Energy has certainly been far more subdued than it was at
    the time of the February publication of Sir Ian Wood’s preliminary
    findings on the future of offshore oil & gas in the UK.
    According to the report, the UK economy could generate £200bn over the next 20
    years through the recovery of only 3-4bn barrels of North Sea oil and
    gas. Many analysts believe that the potential is much greater.“

I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(bravespellcaster@gmail.com}, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children.

    “Several people have asked me to write something”

    I suppose it is beyond hope that you will comply to requests with the opposite desire?

  • Shenandoah

    Oh, the Scots are nincompoopers, have no fear.

    • pedestrianblogger

      I had an uncle called Angus MacDonald. His father (his son, likewise) was called Malcolm. His grandfather, and grandson, were called Angus, and so on, back into the mists of antiquity and onwards, presumably, into the unimaginable future. Whether there are any lessons to be drawn from this about Scottish nicompoopery (or any other subject, for that matter) is not for me to say. Glad to have been of help.

  • Shenandoah

    ‘Back in the day’: someone else used that phrase recently. I was mystified. Back in what day? Reminds me of the (East) Indian chap my husband once did business with, who said at least five times per conversation: ‘at the end of the day….’, in a singsong. ‘The other day’ at least has a certain utility: a day recently passed and it doesn’t matter precisely when. Saves the poor listener from longueurs. Amen!

  • Shenandoah

    Question: Can Glasgow ever be as beautiful, glam, elegant and desirable as Edinburgh? Discuss.

    • terregles2

      Why.?

      • Shenandoah

        Because Edinburgh is beautiful. And I like beauty.

        • terregles2

          Me to I am a Glaswegian who loves the capital city of my beautiful country.

        • terregles2

          Me to I am a Glaswegian who loves the capital city of my beautiful country.

        Because Glasgow needs to up its game. If you’re not moving forwards you’re drifting backwards….

        • terregles2

          Thanks for that tip we will try our best.

          • Shenandoah

            :^[]

    • pedestrianblogger

      I doubt if Glasgow could ever be as beautiful, glam, elegant and desirable as Basingstoke, to be quite honest.

  • Jupiter

    Whoever decided to have the opening ceremony at Celtic Park has a wicked sense of humour. Knuckle dragging celtic fans will be horrified to see the Union Jack flying over their stadium for the first time ever, and even worse, the Queen will be there.

    • Kennybhoy

      Actually the Union Flag flew unremarked over the old Parkhead Jungle for the better part of a century including the worst years of The Troubles. It’s absence in recent years has as much to do with the growth of PC as any anti British/Nationalist sentiment.

      Oh and this particular knuckle dragger is an Oxford graduate and retired army officer. Have a nice day numpty! :-)

      • Jambo25

        I haven’t seen a Saltire or Lion Rampant being flown amongst the Celtic faithful at virtually any match I’ve attended at Tynie for years.

        • Kennybhoy

          “I haven’t seen a Saltire or Lion Rampant
          being flown amongst the Celtic faithful at virtually any match I’ve attended at
          Tynie for years.”

          To say that the Celtic away support contains a
          large number of Irish nationalist and republican sympathizers would be
          something of an understatement. You do see the odd Saltire at home games with a
          noticeable increase in the run up to September.

          “The Union Flag’s absence at Parkhead for the
          past period of years has been due more to a bizarre withdrawal of identification
          with Scotland..”

          Bizarre? Surely no more so than that Scottish withdrawal
          of identification with Britain which you allege and set such store by?

          “My Celtic supporting pals have noticed this
          and are,rather perturbed by it.”

          Friends and relatives I have spoken to date
          the change to sometime in the 1990s. I was living overseas at that time and
          only got to the odd game during periods of leave. They suspect that there were
          a number of factors in play.

          “I assume it has something to do with being ‘Celtic
          Minded’.”

          Aye weel, you would maybe know more about what
          goes on inside a nationalist heid than I Maister J…?

          PS The opening ceremony was very cool. Even if
          we were evicted from our usual seats! :-)

    • benbecula

      Even worse for them was the singing of the Queen’s national anthem. Who’d a thought it , the tims must be crying in their Guinness.

      • terregles2

        Can’t say I have heard anyone crying about anything. I expect they will all just go back to Celtic Park and enjoy it as much as before. Just as all the Rangers supporters continued to enjoy visits to their local Bellahouston park after the Papal visits to that venue.
        Life goes on and is usually overtaken by the important issues rather than.trivia.

    • terregles2

      I was at the ceremony last night and nobody was horrified at anything they were all too busy welcoming great athletes to the city. There were some who did not wish to sing God Save The Queen but they stood up and showed respect. Many cheered the Queen but others only clapped politely.
      Glasgow is celebrating a great sporting event not bothering about the Union Jack or any other flag. It’s a big world out there and Glasgow is happy to welcome a large part of it to the celebrations..

  • Shinsei1967

    “To suppose otherwise is to insist that voters are incapable of appreciating that a quadrennial sporting entertainment has little bearing on a political decision that is, if you like, 300 years in the making.”

    Well, that’s how I’d like to think the Scots are making their decision. However many of the more twittish Yes supporters do seem to think this is a referendum on George Osborne & the bedroom tax than on a 300 year old political union.

    • Graham Purnell

      Well it kind of is about George and the bedroom tax (amongst other things). It’s about political and social viewpoints that are incrementally diverging at an increasing pace. “More pandas than tories” is a slogan but it hints at a deeper reality. Anyway, it’s more the likelihood of (mainly) English voters taking us out of Europe in a couple of years if we hitch our colours to the UK mast that is the real concern. And UKIP.

    • terregles2

      It is not the bedroom tax or any other one issue that is affecting the referendum vote. It is the lack of control and the lack of power over important policy making areas like defence, immigration, social security, foreign policy etc.
      Scotland needs control of these important departments.

  • ohforheavensake

    Thanks, Alex- makes sense to me.

  • sir_graphus

    Yes, but the effect of the silly and inaccurate film “Braveheart” was huge and undeniable.

    • ChuckieStane

      The film was indeed silly and inaccurate but not as silly and inaccurate as your interpretation of its impact on Scotland’s constitutional future.

      • sir_graphus

        Interesting stats; my impression, working in Aberdeen at the time, was that the film really brought the argument over independence from a background grumble to a political issue; from an aspiration (for some) to a potential reality. I am surprised to find it not reflected in polls at all, but stranger things …

        • Kennybhoy

          According to my sister-in-law the teacher, it’s effect on youngsters was quite dramatic and quite worrying…

          • Jambo25

            And according to me, who was a history teacher at the time, my department and any others I knew of, wouldn’t show the film, even as an end of term treat, without a boring old lesson on the reality of 13th century Scotland

      • Blair Spowart

        A vote for the SNP in Westminster is completely different to support for their constitutional ambitions for Scotland, you cannot take support for one as evidence of support for the other. This analysis is a bit more relevant:

    • abystander

      No it wasn’t.

      Scottish people know the history of their country and can recognise Hollywood embellishment as well as anyone else.

      By the way Wallace existed, fought for Scotland and was executed, barbarically, for being a traitor to an English king. His words are a matter of historical record. How could a Scot be traitor to an English king?

      The unionist problem is not that the Scottish people are fools but that they are not.

      • HookesLaw

        Leaving aside who (amongst several claimants) was the rightful King of Scotland and whether Edward I had the right to intervene – Wallace was captured and handed to the English by Scottish nobles.

        • abystander

          Unionists to a man, those nobles.

          • mehercle

            As that was more than 400 years before the Union , you are talking rubbish .

          • mightymark

            I suppose we expect many cries of:

            “bought and sold for English gold”

            if its “No” in September!

            • Kennybhoy

              No “if” about it man…

      • Kennybhoy
      • Kennybhoy

        “How could a Scot be traitor to an English king?”

        Look up feudalism.

    • HookesLaw

      Huh?

    • The Masked Marvel

      The bizarre, non sequitur outdoors scene in “Trainspotting” with the Scottish junkies whinging about who conquered them seemed to be evidence of a people with issues.

      • Kennybhoy

        You mean like many hereabouts constantly whinging aboot the EU, immigrants etc, etc…? :-)

        • The Masked Marvel

          Almost a good analogy, but not quite. I thought there was a good element of self-loathing in the junkie’s complaint, which isn’t really the case with those complaining about being overrun by mass immigration today.

          • Kennybhoy

            I respectfully disagree. Lack of faith in our country, our culture and , absent multiculturalism, our ability to win out in a war for hearts and minds is at root self-loathing.

            • The Masked Marvel

              I see what you mean, but believe you’re talking about a different subset than I am.

    • MichtyMe

      All Hollywood films on past events are silly and inaccurate, they are entertainments not an authentic history lesson.

    • Kennybhoy

      http://www.thefreelibrary.com/Don't+you+dare+call+me+English.-a061275262

      The victim is a Lib-Dem activist, but still…

      No, that was just in your head. All of that was just in your little, cramped head. Take the top off: it’s sunny outside.
