    1. Thepnr says:

      Excellent! I’m keeping mine, there all mine. One day you readers that never ordered any will wish you did.

      These will be collectors items and very rare. Hurry get an order in you still have time. help do that wee bit extra for Independence.

      You know you want too.

    2. louis.b.argyll says:

      Political aid, nourishment for a hungry nation.

    3. Paula Rose says:

      So excited – lots of folk in Brechin will be getting one of these, no No vote next time!

    4. Cuilean says:

      Hi Stu,

      I ordered 50 the first day. Is there a big waiting list or did I order incorrectly. i.e. how long should I wait before trying to order again? Many thanks.

    5. Valerie says:


      Looking good! Looking forward to mine.

    6. K1 says:

      Oooh excellent news!

      Good on ye people for all the hard work in writing/printing/posting…brilliant effort! The park benches of Glasgow await the Wee Black Book’s arrival…punters pouring over the No camp’s propaganda…perusing at their peril.

      Wake wakey time!

      Here comes the truth!

    7. Ian Brotherhood says:

      Can anyone who’s ordered a batch and is likely to be at the next Glasgow WOS bash please keep a couple for me?

      Since chucking the SSP I’m not likely to be doing any streetwork any time soon, so I didn’t order any. I would only need half a dozen or so for obstinate immediate family and a couple of softish-No neighbours.

    8. Rev. Stuart Campbell says:

      “I ordered 50 the first day. Is there a big waiting list”

      They should all be in the post by sometime tomorrow.

    9. Cruachan says:

      Remember to target No voters with these.

    10. Liz Rannoch says:

      Come to mama my little treasures! I’ve got good homes for you.

    11. chasanderson200 says:

      Ian Brotherhood
      Let me know how many you need and I will send them to you. You should a already have my e mail address so you can send me your postal address and I shall send them ASAP.
      Let me know on here if you no longer have my email add.

    12. Ian Brotherhood says:

      @chasanderson –

      You is a cool dude.

      Seriously, I only need five or six.

      Please message me and I’ll send address by return:

      ianbhood [at] gmail [dot] com


    13. annie says:

      @Ian Brotherhood surprised to hear you’ve quit SSP thought you were a die hard supporter, always hurts when people disappoint you.

    14. Ian Brotherhood says:

      @annie –

      Bit early to go O/T, but SSP conference is next week-end – a lot will emerge as to why so many of us walked.

      Expect blood and snotters.

    15. heedtracker says:

      When Scotland does become an independent nation state again, these will be museum pieces in galleries like the Kelvin, alongside a stuffed Lord Darling.

    16. Paula Rose says:

      Packs hankies and zooms over to Ian Brotherhood’s place.

    17. Grouse Beater says:

      Cruachan: “Remember to target No voters with these.”

      Should I go for the head or the crotch?

    18. Ian Brotherhood says:

      4000 posts?

      Four thousand?


      Has Rev ever considered a big coffee-table style Best Of WOS? It would be a fine and desirable object indeed…

    19. Thepnr says:

      4000 posts yeah pretty damn good, so too is 552,973 comments.

    20. Paula Rose says:

      That’d be 552,000 without the wee troubly makers?

    21. Ian Brotherhood says:

      The Big WOS Book could have a devilish Wordsearch containing the names of alleged trolls who’ve entertained us over the years…

    22. Ian Brotherhood says:

      …it would also have a chunky ‘So-And-So Is A Liar’ chapter, just in case the subjects didn’t ‘hear’ Rev first-time…

    23. Kenny says:

      I think you missed a trick by not having them in a “Daily Record-esque” front cover.

      Maybe with a back cover containing some tedious football nonsense (possibly: “Rangers score last-minute goal” with pic?).

      However, I do think the books look stylish and there is something “tempting” about them to the soft NO voter, I think…. and these are the people who need to be targeted.

    24. Flying Scotsman says:

      Much quicker than perks it would seem.

    25. Ian Brotherhood says:

      …special life-size fold-out portraits of the major drivers behind Scotland’s revivified push for independence – Hothersall, Darling, Foulkes, Brown, Tomkins, Oliver, McTernan etc…heroes all.

    26. Colin Gerard says:

      Cheers big ears!

    27. Macart says:

      @Ian B

      ‘Blood and snotters’

      Yeah, I can practically feel the pounding you gave the keyboard when you typed that.

      Break out the Lambrini and the tunes. Its the only sane thing to do fella.

    28. Effijy says:

      Great News Rev!
      I have all of my targets lined up and ready for the air drop.

      Can I add a thought about BUM Claiming that the SNP success has made problems for Scotland as it is a One Party State?

      They allege that the EU Ref is much bigger and more important than the Scottish Ref?
      Could I ask why I’ve been watch and listening and reading Tory Brexit campaigners Michael Gove, Liam Fox, Boris Johnson, and Nigel Lawson.

      For Remain it has been even more Tories, David Cameron, Gideon Osborne, and John Major.

      Have you spotted the One Party UK, and the One Party EU Ref

      Of course we have had glimpses of Labour Sheep following their Tory Party counterparts around and generally helping them baton down the hatches of austerity.
      Ed No Balls following Gideon, Sidiq Khan following David Cameron, Neil Kinnock backing up pal John Major.

      I feel certain that the Media will now rise in outrage at this unhealthy political landscape that only has Tories in it. Ayr Right!

      PS Kinnock is very much for the EU as when the British public rejected him, he was given a nice wee earner in Brussels. He then got his wife a first class job there, and then one of his in-laws.
      Between the 3 of them, they picked up £10 Million over 5 years.
      Now that Turkey is definitely not voting for an Xmas Brexit!

      Also noted that “Scottish” members of the House of Lords seem to want things to remain as they are.
      Lord Violent Drunk, Lord Arsonist, Lord Flipper, Lord Ginger of Treasury Lap Dog, Lord Return of Scottish Finance to Westminster, and Lord Nonce of Defence, etc, etc

    29. Jimmy says:

      Rest assured that if a Wee Black Book is put thru my mail box it will go straight from my front door to my recycling bin unopened and unread.
      I’m assuming that SNP propaganda is recyclable.

    30. Ian Brotherhood says:

      @Macart –

      🙂 ;( 🙁


      It’ll all come out soon enough.

      Probably next Saturday, late afternoon.

      Big question – is there anyone left (no pun intended) who gives much of a toss?

    31. Dr Jim says:


      Crucified anyone lately jimmy?
      Where did you get the idea the WBB has anything to do with the SNP?

      From the Grand Poobah of your Klan maybe?

      BTW It’s the bad spelling that gives you away

    32. Macart says:

      @Ian B

      Hear that.

    33. R-type Grunt says:

      @ heedtracker

      Isn’t Lord Darling already stuffed?

    34. Valerie says:

      @Jimmy 11.17pm

      Good to know. Glad you got that wee brain fart out?

      The WBB is nothing to do with the SNP. Try and keep up.

    35. heedtracker says:

      @ heedtracker

      Isn’t Lord Darling already stuffed?

      Not yet. When indy comes, I would love to be the curator of the Museum of UKOK yoonery. It’ll be like Madame Tussauds, but much more boring. Its probably a whilee a way yet though

    36. Famous15 says:

      I found it amazing that a mediocre sixth form debater leapt to the dizzy heights of leading the Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party. What i did not factor in was the universal media approval and backing of such a light weight. Ruth Davidson was annointed by the Scottish Media to lead the attack on any and all show of pride in Scotland.

      We are not worthy to be proud of our country of birth or choice!

      There is now a very tightly stage managed effort to destroy Scotland. The hatred of the SNP is vicious and despicable. Any day of the week ,read the Daily Mail or Express or the shadows of once great newspapers like the Herald or Scotsman and you see the bile and wickedness.

      Do not despair . The best answer is laughter. They have become absurd in their fear and hatred of those who do not share their imperial team GB bullshit. Scotland is the beacon of democracy that they cannot extinguish. British nationalism is an outdated joke. Laugh at it,

    37. Ian Brotherhood says:

      @heedtracker –

      For your Yoonery museum – with a wee bit tweaking to make it more unattractive, this is a candidate for the ‘Danny Alexander’ space –

    38. Flower of Scotland says:

      I’m so excited! Trying to decide which good people to give my Wee Black Books to.

      Went to see the film ‘Hamish’ in Dundee tonight. Really enjoyed it, especially in the company of many Scottish Indy Stalwarts.

      The BBC rejected Hamish too. Wouldn’t even speak to him. He ripped up his OBE.

      Terrifying, Haunted House of the ghouls and ghosts of UKOK Yoonery is more interesting, for younger visitors. A whole gallery could be devoted to JK Rowling and the UKOK media grovelers the idiot attracts, Welcome to the JK Rowling exhibition where you can witness a wax work of Rowlng handing a million quid cheque to a big fat bloke and all to stop our country existing children. See rancid The Graun’s done a huge weekend grovelfest to Rowling, ew.

      BTW It’s the bad spelling that gives you away

      Come on, EVERYBODY knows that Wings is put together at SNP headquarters and Nicola Sturgeon (aka The Wicked Witch of the North) writes half the articles (and Alicsaman writes half of the comments).

      Rev Stu is an SNP voter with a chip on his shoulder because he was not picked to stand as Liberal candidate for the Larkhall Parish Council back in 1967.

      The Wings logo is taken from the banners of the Roman Empire, which occupied Engerland, but not Jockland. So that ticks all the boxes for the Europhile sweaties (who wanted Hitler to win the war… and Napoleon). Did I tell you that the YES movement is just an anti-English campaign? If you don’t believe me, just ask JK Rowling…

    41. DerekM says:

      Well Jimmy we wouldnt want to upset you since you took all the trouble to find out what the WBB is and come on wings to post about how much you dont like it.

      Could always stick eejit lives here on your door with a butchers flag and a wee picture of maggie monster if you dont want it and are content to be robbed and lied to after voting to hand Scotland over to the tories for another round of robbery.

      I am sure if we seen that then we wouldnt bother giving you one no point wasting it on a dead head.

    42. Dr Jim says:


      You’re definitely no helpin, Jimmy’ll hink that’s right noo
      Except maybe fur the Jakey bit, naebdy likes hur shoorley!!

      This is my attempt at easy writing to enable Jimmy to read as we’ve all noticed the force is not strong with Yoon Educayshun,

    43. Robert J. Sutherland says:

      Oh, seeing that first photo gave me a right dunt, thinking it was showing a bunch of old-style dark blue UK passports returning!

      That was an expensive consequence which had never occurred to me before now.


      Nightmare over (for now). It’s something far more uplifting.

      Methinks though that this Wee Black Book may have to go through more editions (and additions) before it ceases to be relevant.

    44. Almannysbunnet says:

      I was just thinking that Jimmy has done well for himself what with his own mailbox, not the common or garden letterbox for him, his own front door and a recycle bin. Probably been to America too with his spelling of thru. Then he went and tried to be clever by wrongly assuming something. So I’m guessing it’s yer Ma’s letterbox, front door and recycle bin eh Jimmy?

      See you Jimmy, the reason yer nae clever is because you haven’t expanded your reading material. Don’t be scared of the wee black book, it’s got pictures.

    45. Truth says:


      Loving those Lord names. Lord Violent Drunk, really made me chuckle.

      On topic, supreme effort Rev. My thanks go to you and your distribution team. Well done.

      History will record you as Scotland’s heroes.

    46. Truth says:

      Oh dear. I’ve just seen Jimmy’s comment.

      I’m a supporter of a sovereign independent Scotland.

      Even so, I read all unionist leaflets that make their way through my door. I often spot the mistakes and false assertions contained therein, but at least I sleep sound in the knowledge I respected their right to be heard.

      A closed mind is a waste of a good brain. What have you got to lose Jimmy?

    47. chasanderson200 says:

      “A closed mind is a waste of a good brain”.

      You seem to assume that Jimmy has a brain.

    48. Welcome to the club. Ex SSP membership must be the biggest club in Scotland.

    49. yesindyref2 says:

      I believe there’s a paragraph about you somewhere around the middle of the book.

    50. T.roz says:

      “jimmy” to be honest with you I can’t really ‘rest assured’ . Because I don’t think your going to put that wee book straight to re-cycle. a recon your gona have a wee sneaky look first!

    51. Les Wilson says:

      Sorry O/T, I was away from home at the weekend, and I came across an article, that claimed that the British Government between 1920 and 1930 spent £3 millon a year encouraging Scots to emigrate.

      Proof they want to keep Scotland depopulated,spending £30 million getting Scots to leave our homeland!,utterly disgusting.

      I was on someone else’s computer and did not save the link. It may even have been on wings briefly, but just thought I should inform those who did not see it.

    52. David says:

      I odered some very early on cant remember when or how many now…..senility taking over obviously do I need to reorder or what?

    53. Ken500 says:

      Thatcher illegally and secretly took the equivalent of a £300 Oil Fund from Scotland, and shut down every manufacturing facility in Scotland. Spending the money on London S/E, deregulated Banking and sold off utilities now owned by foreign National state companies. French, Spanish etc.

      The Tories are now handing over utilities to the Chinese. Nuclear and Rail. Hinkley Point a disaster waiting to happen. HS2 a total waste of public money, that could be better spent improving the present rail system. It will damage the Environment. The Tories intending spending £20Billion a year for ten years on these projects. A total waste of public money which could be better spent. Two Tidal Barrages (£20Billion) would produce more electricity and be safer.

      The Tory/Unionists have tried to ruin the Oil & Gas sector in Scotland, losing thiusands of jobs. 60/80% tax when the price had fallen 75%. It is now 40%. The Tories no enterprise and high taxes. More Oil and Gas has to be imported putting up the balance of payments and the debt.

      The Tory/Unionists make people sick. They are sanctioning and starving the vulnerable. The Tories are trying to cut NHS spending £4Billion a year. £20Billion in five years. They were elected to protect the NHS and cut the debt. They have done neither. Vote in for Europe and out for the Tories.

      The migration crisis in Europe is caused by Westminster bombing the Middle East to bits for years. Westminster will not take any responsibility. Farague is a crook. He has milked the EU for £Millions and illegally funded a Political Party with public money. Boris Johnston privileges were funded by EU money and tax evading Non Doms. The Tories have broken electoral rules. Most of them should be in jail.

      If the Tories try to change the ‘named person’ policy, or OFA in Scotland they will just make themselves even more unpopular. These policies are supported by the majority. Trying to keep people safe in Scotland.

    54. Petra says:


      @ Les Wilson at 8:06am …. Depopulation of Scotland.

      Les I posted something yesterday to that effect. £3 million a year (an absolute fortune at that time) to get rid of us. A great documentary however the treatment of the Scots here and abroad (to whence they went / were sent) will make your blood boil.

      ‘Scotland: The Promised Land – Home for Highland Heroes’ …. episode 2 of 3 …. was first shown on BBC2 …. surprise, surprise …. and then could be seen on BBCiplayer but that has expired now. You could watch it on

    55. X_Sticks says:

      Ah, timely reminder that I hadn’t ordered mine yet. Done now. Sorry to be so late Lindsay!

    56. Valerie says:

      @Les Wilson

      It’s quite shocking. They gave money to people to buy their boat tickets, families were torn apart in the promise of work in these new lands in Canada and USA.

      Many found nothing when they arrived, no job, no accommodation, no money to get home.

    57. Proud Cybernat says:


      So we now hear that should the UK vote LEAVE then WM will us its pro-EU majority (LAB+SNP+TORYEUROPHILES+OTHERS)to vote down the will of the people.

      Well–now you know what WM would have done if Scotland had voted YES in IndyRef#1 (and will probably do with IndyRef#2).

      Question is – will they get away with it?

    58. Ian Brotherhood says:

      Very interesting new site launched this morning – ‘Positively Scottish’.

      Bit of an antidote to typical MSM treatment of Scottish topics.

    59. Proud Cybernat says:

      See you, Jimmy – you’ve probably been trumpeting your yoon pish for decades because you don’t realise just how much you have been duped. Open your eyes, man. I know some of the diagrams might be a wee bit hard for you but at least look at some of the pictures in the Wee Black Book. You will find it very illuminating. Question is – do you WANT to be educated or would you much prefer to remain in your blissful yoony ignorance?

      “A man who views the world the same at fifty as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life.” – the late, greatest, Muhammad Ali.

      Grow some retinas, man. Oh, and a brain too.

    60. Dr Jim says:

      Today David Cameron is making a Guarantee, not a Vow or a Pledge but a Guarantee to the Great English British everybody, that his new reformed EU will bend over backwards to give England and indeed Britain lots and lots of goodness and betterness forever more, and maybe even longer than that if the Great English people, and British as well, vote to remain

      That is his Guarantee that is his and his alone along with some other party leaders who say they will sign up as well

      I wonder if this brand new initiative never tried before will work on the Great British English people

    61. Petra says:


      Les / Valerie

      I’ve just checked it out. £3 million spent every year for 15 years, not 10, from 1922 (?) and then it stopped no doubt in the lead up to WW11 when they needed the brave Scots for cannon fodder once again.

      Many leaving from the Highlands and Islands because they didn’t have enough land to live off / feed their children whilst Lordie whatever was sitting on his thousand / s acre estates.

      And to add insult to injury many were told that they would have their own little farm when they arrived say in Canada but were planted in the frozen wilderness with nought ….. promises, promises, vow, vow, vow …. broken. We’ve been booted up the backside over and over again for centuries now. As I’ve said already it would make your blood boil and want … demand Independence in their name alone.

      It’s also made me think of some elderly people I’ve met along the way such as a man who’d worked in Canadian wheat fields as a young teenager and said it was an absolute nightmare, freezing and starving …. slave labour. He and his 4 siblings (eldest 16) went to Canada when their parents died. The younger children were brought up by nuns in Scotland. I’m now wondering if orphans were shipped out, whether they wanted to go or not, through this scheme?

      Then there are those who did alright for themselves such as Trumps mother and her two sisters from the Isle of Lewis.

    62. Dr Jim says:

      We all know David Cameron’s lying over the EU and we all know Boris Johnson’s lying over the EU
      The Media all know everybody is lying over the EU and yet it seems to be amusing to everybody that the so called political leaders (LEADERS)of our Nations get away with this shit

      Now if this were happening in, let’s sat MBONTO LAND with President Mdangum the news media would be expressing huge outrage that a country’s leaders were lying to that country for political gain and they would be having British Politicians on every five minutes condemning it and David Cameron calling for a political solution and stability for that country of MBONTO LAND and holding up British democracy as a beacon of light to corrupt regimes, and none of us would be surprised if it were all followed by a toppling of that regime in a political coup with hundreds of thousands of the people of that country marching pretty angrily at the idea of being made fools of

      But here in Great British England we shrug our shoulders and all agree that British English politics is as corrupt as they come but never mind eh God Save the Queen

      It makes you wonder in amazement how Scotland voted against getting rid of the very people who behave in this manner and then have the overwhelming cheek to screech about what is the underpowered Scottish Government going to do about stuff they voted not to have

      NO voters are the most illogical cretins on the face of the planet and they’re only argument seems to be “I don’t want Scotland to have any power but what are you going to do about the ones we gave the power to”

    63. Capella says:

      @ Petra
      I wonder if that £3m was part of the 27% of Scottish revenue actually spent in Scotland or part of the c 72% retained by the Treasury for “Imperial Services”.

    64. Petra says:

      @ Dr Jim …. Cameron’s guarantee.

      Don’t you think that Cameron’s treatment of the Scots pre / post Indyref1 will be coming back to haunt him now? Chickens coming home to roost and all that.

      The people of England ain’t daft they know full well that we were lied to / duped but didn’t really care enough about that situation or us for that matter. However now they are in a similar boat, do care about themselves of course, their situation and won’t trust him one bit.

      He’s basically shot himself in the foot IMO and I hope if it’s a Brexit the follow-up analysis will show that he lost because he wasn’t trusted. Wasn’t trusted due to lying his head off to the Scots and breaking every promise he ever made to us. Oh and eh rejecting every proposed amendment to the Scotland Bill and treating our highly respected, valued, democratically elected SNP MPs like sh*t in Westminster. Hell mend ye Davie if naebody believes you now and you’re oot on your erse by the end of the month. Going down in history as the PM who broke connection with the EU and lost Scotland, in the main, because he’s a well-known nasty, wee conniving, unprincipled, bare-faced liar.

    65. Dr Jim says:


      It’ll take more than two tae haud you back Petra (Biff!)right on his snoot

    66. Petra says:

      @ Capella at 11:18am …

      That’s it Capella they robbed us all blind and used our money to ‘clear’ us off the land. Our money. Our land. They probably had the same idea as Hitler but decided against using gas chambers. You can see how they view things from their perspective …. through their eyes. They want rid of us to get their claws on our land / resources and if WW2 hadn’t got in the way our numbers (Scottish born) would be nearer zilch by now (rid themselves of 500,000 Scots between 1920 / 1930).

      They’re continuing to clear us out, year on year, by making sure we don’t have the levers to create a strong economy; have low unemployment with decent paying jobs. This results in thousands of, mostly young, well educated, Scots leaving every year to be replaced by higher levels of rUK folks either bleeding us dry through claiming benefits / home care or holding positions of influence at our Universities and so on.

      Too bad that so many No voters can’t see the light but of course that’s all been part and parcel of the ethnic cleansing ploy. The Yes initiative should make more of establishing contacts abroad because they are the very people who do know the truth, can see the light and could help us in a multitude of ways. That and Wings of course.

    67. Ian Brotherhood says:

      @Petra (11.22)



      His ears must be burning…

    68. Les Wilson says:

      Petra says:

      Thanks for further post on this issue Petra, it is truly disgusting how they have treated Scots, pretty well throughout this”Union”. This shows once more how desperate they are to keep Scotland down, including our population.

      This was a more devious clearance, ethnic cleansing by the modern name. If we had decent media, we could have got this out to the masses. Any Scot MUST feel disgusted by this.
      I hope our friends in social media get it out there at every opportunity.

      Would also be good if the SNP raised the issue in Westminster, that would be a start.

    69. Robert Kerr says:

      @Petra (11.22)

      Yer a bonny fechter Lass.

      Dinne mess wae us Scottish wimmen. Wir a hardy bunch.

      Wee Davie (well his stand-in because he was too feart to turn up) and I at Largs seafront.

      An this was ma great granny wae Churchill (ditto feart – stand-in).

    71. MarkAustin says:

      Just a pointer for anyone who confronts a senior EU pensioner (think Kinnock or Clegg). It is a condition of their pension that they continue to support the EU—it could be stopped if they did not.
