Gordon Brown’s Better Together speech the day before the Scottish referendum
This is the best speech of the whole campaign.
In the words of the Queen ‘Please think very carefully’ before voting tomorrow.
And while you do consider this:
The Security that we have from the British forces.
The financial protection that the Union guarantees.
The friendly atmosphere that Scotland has had up until the now.
I don’t wan’t this country to be broken up, and whatever the differences, neither should you, because whatever Salmond promises about a fairer society - I think we can see that will not be the case.
Please, for the country’s sake, vote No.
The unsung heroes.
That was one of the most horrifying, painful, beautiful parts of the movie. So many of them weren’t prepared, so many were administrators who had no clue that the STRIKE teams had turned, let alone that a killing machine like the Winter Soldier was on the loose.
So many of them died.
And yet none of them hesitated. Despite the propaganda Pierce had unleashed, despite their orders, despite everything, they still responded. Their sacrifice, their heroism - they gave the last full measure of devotion, and I can’t imagine that Steve wouldn’t attend the memorial service, even if he had to use a wheelchair or a cane because his own wounds hadn’t finished healing.
"Captain’s orders" indeed.
without these people, there IS no Captain America.
MY MIND HAS BEEN BLOWN
THAT NEVER HAPPENS WITH HARRY POTTER
ESPECIALLY NOT WITH MINERVA MCGONAGALL
OMFG MY WHOLE LIFE IS WHAT
WHAT WHAT WHAT
Oh my god, she was GORGEOUS.
WAIT WHAT WHAT’S GOING ON
If y’all ever thought Minerva was anything short of stunning when she was young, you have been fooled. This witch was a heart breaker, and could spell circles around anyone. Brains and beauty with that lovely lady.
