Things we told you would happen, part 99 200

Posted on December 19, 2019 by

Or to be more precise, wouldn’t happen.

It sucks being right all the time. But at least now, as we asked for, the lie is over. So that’s a good thing. We suppose we should celebrate, but we don’t feel much like it.

The Abolition Of Sanity, Part 2 202

Posted on December 19, 2019 by

Yesterday we posted an article noting that hardline trans-rights extremists, among whose number we must regretfully count the Scottish Government, were engaged in a determined and alarmingly successful attempt to abolish the scientific basis for reality.

We did not expect such a striking illustration of that assertion to arrive this soon.

Enemies within 263

It really is quite the remarkable feat of timing that concerted mass reporting by SNP activists managed to get the Wings Twitter account (and several others) closed down this week of all weeks, isn’t it?

They’re also trying to get my personal account banned, and reporting scores of others, in an open attempt to purge any sort of dissenting opinions from public dialogue at exactly the same time as opening a “consultation” whose outcome has already been predetermined, and which in another remarkable coincidence is due to close just a few days into the four weeks scheduled for the Alex Salmond trial.

What were the odds, eh readers?

Two stories from yesterday’s Scottish papers, published at 11.19am and 11.28am:

The Ringer 167

Scottish Labour would like you to meet Rory.

They want you to believe that he was an SNP member and independence voter who’s recently changed his mind and become a devolutionist Labour supporter.

But that’s not quite true.

Getting what you don’t wish for 221

We hate to harp on, but it seems kinda important.

Maybe they just bought a Lib Dem bus by accident and only had time to repaint the photo or something.

This site still remembers what it was created for. We hope the SNP does.

We all remember this happy time, right?

Of course, it didn’t work out like that in practice.

Two Woke Princes 197

Posted on December 05, 2019 by

Last night the SNP ditched its second office-bearing member in a week for supposed “anti-Semitism”. Both were thrown under the bus days before a general election for comments deemed to have compared the actions of the government of Israel to those of the Nazis during WW2, which is contrary to the definition of the term used by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance.

The specific line that both were deemed to have infringed was “Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis” – although interestingly the SNP has never publicly confirmed that it’s actually signed up to the definition, and the super-woke Greens haven’t adopted it either.

The suspensions of Neale Hanvey and Denise Findlay were triggered by the actions of supporters of two SNP politicians who have recently been very vocal about supposed “cybernat abuse” – MEP Alyn Smith and MP Stewart McDonald, both pictured below.

And some alert readers had questions.
