Freudian slippage

Yeah, that sounds about right.

    1. LaingB French says:

      WTF?

    2. Liz g says:

      Is no one tell them this is a vote loser?

    3. Alan Mackintosh says:

      So is she on a BAM list in her area or is it the disabled one. Has she indicated whether she has a list-jumping disability yet? Perhaps given the above highlight, it might be dyslexia…?

      And no, I’m not being dis-ablist…

    4. I liked Scotland better when it wasn’t trying to be white middle class America.

      Writer friend of mine just referred to S——n as “the Nurse Ratchett of Holyrood,” in an email to me. Sounds like a fair analogy.

    5. Lollysmum says:

      Oh dear, how sad, never mind. Its bad when they can’t get the basics right.

    6. Kenny says:

      Jeezus – any old bampot can be let loose on Scots lol.

      Good to see you kicking their daft, stupid arses again, Stuart – we’re DAMN LUCKY to have you, dude.

    7. Eileen Carson says:

      Ha! ha! ha! I think she will be Oot the Windae

    8. The world recently has turned upside doon!

    9. Caroline Wilson says:

      Oops, or on second thoughts, perhaps we should applaud her honesty?

    10. Stephen P says:

      “not up for debate”. Another choice phrase.

    11. Margaret Lindsay says:

      I did ask her about the absence of the word independence in her wee post, but as usual…tumbleweed.

      “So is she on a BAM list in her area or is it the disabled one.”
      I think she was going for the disablest list – not sure on what grounds but it may have been dyslexia- judging by the statement.
      Don’t think she has much of a chance though.

    13. Republicofscotland says:

      I see the vile and ultra woke Kirsty Blackman, on Hagmann’s Twitter feed stating that she hopes all SNP List candidates will sign the pledge.

      Another very good reason not to give your List vote to the SNP, it would be doubly wasted on this lot. No give your List vote to the ISP or the AFI, but not to the ultra woke Greens, they are unelectable at the moment.

      Not getting my vote.

      Next!

    15. Denise says:

      ‘Not up for debate’ ….. ..
      How on earth have we ended up with such truly awful candidates

    16. Captain Yossarian says:

      Aye – and when elected she’ll want a job as a Minister, just like Humza’s wife. Much better than working in a call-centre or a canteen.

    17. Skip_NC says:

      This is what happens when you try to do something too quickly, probably on a mobile device, and don’t ask anyone to check it for you.

      My wife is a nurse. I am a tax practitioner. We know nothing much about each other’s fields. However, we always got each other to proof-read our college papers for grammar/spelling and readability.

      Is this person already in politics, perhaps as a councillor? If not, on the evidence presented, she is not yet ready to take an elected role. Attention to minor details and having the instinct to step back and look at the whole picture are essential skills in any politician’s armoury.

    18. SilverDarling says:

      What’s the quote?

      “When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time”

    19. blackhack says:

      Nothing like these young uns telling it like it is……

    20. A Person says:

      I mean, really, is this the whole manifesto? I thought nothing would shock me anymore about the SNP but a candidate whose sole policy position, at a time of national crisis, is “ I support trans rights”, and simply expecting that to convince everyone? They think that that’s all they need to say?

    21. kapelmeister says:

      “Sorry, we’re all out of indy. Have you tried Woolworths?”

    22. Rev. Stuart Campbell says:

      “They think that that’s all they need to say?”

      I suspect you’ll find this person will be claiming to have a disability, so they don’t actually need any votes, so they’re not bothered about whether their pitch generates any.

    23. A Person – “I support trans rights” is all you have to say…to a small subsection of the populace to get their vote and support. It’s the 21st century equivalent if “whit fit dae ye kick wi?”

    24. Republicofscotland says:

      From this it appears that Blackman will publish a list of those potential candidates on the SNP List vote, in a few days, who have and have not signed the wokie pledge.

      I’d imagine its to put pressure on those who haven’t signed it by then, and a concerted campaign can begin to have them deselected if they fail to do so.

      Once again we must not give the SNP our List votes, give them to the ISP or AFI, a List vote given to the SNP is a wasted vote by all accounts.

    25. Josef Ó Luain says:

      Out of Diligence, more like. SNP, hidden in lower-case. Oh, dear.

    26. Cath says:

      “I firmly believe that human rights apply to all and this is not up for debate”

      I’m honestly, genuinely struggling to imagine who is arguing with the statement “human rights apply to all”.

      Or wait, looking at the declaration of human rights, maybe I’m not struggling quite so much as they include:

      The right to a fair trial.
      The right to life, liberty, and personal security.
      Freedom of belief and religion.
      Freedom of opinion.
      The right to equality before the law.
      The right to privacy.
      Innocent until proved guilty

      So yeah, maybe a few people don’t.

    27. It says on her Twitter page that Hagmann is dyslexic.

    28. Louiae says:

      So is anyone who is solely focused on getting independence not welcome in the SNP anymore because that’s what it feels like. I now feel politically homeless. I know I have to now go ISP or AFI but I don’t know which to choose any chance of you doing a piece stu. I especially don’t like that we are now being told reading your blog should be an expulsion offence.

    29. Artur sweet says:

      I would rather vote for Larry Hagman. She could of course easily change to that whenever she wants.

    30. Denise says:

      So another pile on in the off’ing. Wings has criticized a dyslexic candidate

    31. true scot says:

      Sometimes I feel like Rip Van Winkle having just woken up in a changed world. How did this become the norm?
      It’s about to become a hate crime to state that there are two sexes. This governement seems blind to the opportunity this allows for malicious reporting of hate crime – to settle scores, feuding families etc. The police and courts will be flooded – and let’s face it, there are far better things for them to be doing. I respect others and keep my language civil – we need to debate and not argue as a society. But there’s so much anger around this topic it will become off limits, regardless of how politely dissent is expressed. That is state censorship – the state approving what I can believe.

    32. Black Joan says:

      A member of the dyslexic politicians’ party. Freudian slippage probably offered as proof.

      “Katie Hagmann SNP (She/her)
      @KatieHagmannSNP
      SNP supporter, independence campaigner, dyslexic politician, local councillor for D&G”

    33. Boaby says:

      The south of Scotland voters need to be reminded of this a week before may 6th.

    34. TJenny says:

      I’ve come to the conclusion the SNP don’t really want to win this election. I wonder if they are getting/been promised funding from big pharma as Jo Swinson did. Not that it did her any good either.

    35. holymacmoses says:

      Obviously having trouble with prepositions these days:-)
      This lot have as much trouble with parts of speech as they do with parts of the body

    36. Anonymoose says:

      These idiots will do and say anything to get time at the trough, I’ve seen even it in action on the SNP’s Highlands & Islands candidate statements for the party list rankings (Yes, I am still a member, I didn’t see the point in resigning when I could still influence the list rankings to keep the wokerati out).

      It’s pathetic that out of all of the selection candidates in the H&I none of the wokists put the very thing they brigade with on social media into their candidate statements, they are not willing to stand behind their science denying beliefs even on internal party rankings, because they know those policies are not popular with the core party membership.

      Instead they pretend they are all pro indy, pro-environment, pro-everything-else, but not one mention of the HCB, GRA, or any of the controversial policies and science denying that they actively campaign for on social media because they know it will cost them their list ranking.

      They are in effect lying to the SNP members about policies they would pursue by not declaring them in their candidate statements all in a bid to get a high enough ranking with the potential to get a seat the trough, a seat to force through policies that will damage the equalities act, women’s rights and in effect damage everyone’s human rights by giving a minority group more rights than everyone else and the shutting down of freedom of speech and thought.

    37. Iain McGillivray says:

      SNP, Simply No Party, left after this lot are done. If I had any choice on the constituency vote it would be anyone but this lot. Sadly, for now there is no yoon-free alternative. List wise it will definitely not be SNP. They can Get Lost for Indy.

      So is she on a BAM list in her area or is it the disabled one.

      I’m waiting on a Raft of Limping, BAME, Stuttering, Blind, Woke, arseholes who can’t sepl or wreit standing as Candidates.

      Showing integrity and a penchant for independence doesn’t cut it any more

    39. kapelmeister says:

      Her posts on her twitter are all about being passionate about this, that and the other, or else proud about this or that. Passionate and proud, all day long. Bloody endless professions of enthusiasm. Jolly wokey sticks.

    40. Breeks says:

      I am so mightily sick of these inept useless fkers. Honestly, they make Tory creepoids look half way competent, and that is quite an achievement.

      So many strike me as virtually unemployable in any practical kind of way, and I say that as someone who has taken on multiple glakit 16 yr old school leavers and turned them into tradesmen.

      It’s not a ‘youth’thing. Back in 2014 we all had such high expectations. Remember Saffron Dickson anybody? She made your heart soar.

      But can you imagine leaving one of these “not up for debate” Gender Woo-Woo fanatics to look after the office / shop / site for an afternoon? You’d arrive back to find Fawlty Towers breaking out everywhere.

      The prospect of these vacuous, useless, non-entities seeking to become elected MP’s or MSP’s from the age of 12 screams out to me that the entrance requirements for a life in politics are currently set dangerously low. No wonder Scottish politics and local government is such a risible, feckless, shitfest.

      As the saying goes, the problem with political jokes is that they sometimes get elected. Here in Scotland we have a production line banging them out. Absolutely useless with no life skills or integrity? Don’t sit around mumping in despair, put ‘SNP’ on your nametag and fire your snout in the trough.

      How I wish these parasitic opportunists would demonstrate they have just a wee bit integrity, just even just a molecule, then fk off and start their own rainbow-lunatic party, and stop hijacking the important cause of Scottish Independence as their meal ticket. They are destroying us, and condemning Scotland to another era of misery and exploitation.

      Hopefully they’d take the useless Ms Sturgeon and her rotten wee cleek with them, and just fk off permanently before it’s too late for the situation to be redeeemed.

    41. Jockanese Wind Talker says:

      Simple message to the Scottish Electorate

      Don’t Vote Woke.

      Your welcome.

    42. Camy says:

      TBF I believe she IS Dyslexic

    43. GlenIslay says:

      Obvious political stunt to bag a place on the list is obvious.
      The keep dredging the Mariana trench with how low the bar has been set.

    44. Ian Mac says:

      Even if you are on board with trans rights blah blah, why does it become the centre of everything you are campaigning for? Where is the core message of the SNP? Or is that just a rather minor detail?
      This is just the Trump and Johnson strategy. They provoke culture wars, in order to divide and rule, separating people into tribes whose attitude on one single issue is supposed to stand for a whole range of others you can judge them on. It is a flag raising exercise. If you don’t subscribe to it, you therefore are against human rights, are a bigot, racist blah blah blah. It is a politics of deliberate division and moral grandstanding. Don’t you think people might be more interested in jobs, the economy, transport, energy and independence? Apparently not, because the SNP wouldn’t like to remind people of their record on that, and their poverty of vision on those. Better stick to the self-glorification of how ‘passionate’ they are about one minority’s rights, whatever the impact on others rights.

    45. Jason Smoothpiece says:

      Oh dear priorities, priorities.

      The SNP are determined to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory and all that.

      Apart from pursuing vote losing policies, who is she, what has she ever done?

      Surely at times like this competent sensible folk should be selected for such roles.

    46. GlenIslay says:

      @Breeks

      We’ve been infiltrated by Lib Dems. This was the kind of stuff they’d peddle. They jumped ship in 2014, sensing that their chances were better in the SNP than in a dying party that had no realistic chance of coming within a whiff of power again.

    47. Breeks says:

      … And she’s South of Scotland! “That” isn’t somebody trying to get a job as kiddies TV presenter, “that” is you’re front line SNP stormtrooper destined take on and defeat the Tories. You could fkg weep.

      “The south of Scotland voters need to be reminded of this a week before may 6th.”

      I would imagine the unionists have it in hand – as well as George Galloway, if he ever gets his party registered.

    49. holymacmoses says:

      However Katie’s no slouch .
      She is an elected Councillor for Mid-Galloway and Wigtown West
      At the moment she has three directorships
      Wigtownshire Women’s Aid
      The Southern Uplands Partnership
      Machars Action Limited

      She has a lovely son Olie who is clearly very talented and applies himself because he has just won a scholarship to the Glasgow Conservatoire

      Katie is quoted in the Record:

      Oli’s mum Katie, who is SNP councillor for Mid Galloway, was over the moon when word came through that he had been accepted.

      She said: “It was a tough exam, three pieces to perform, sight reading, aural tests, an interview and a bit of music theory as well.

      “It’s just incredible. It is an amazing opportunity that he has been given. He practices hard and it has paid off. Currently I’m the happiest mum in the world.”
      She added: “It means we’ll have to leave Creetown at 5.45am to catch the train at Ayr for Glasgow. It’s a massive commitment but the opportunity is so incredible it’s worth making it.

      “I’d just like to thank Mr McNab, Creetown Silver Band, Gatehouse head teacher Mr Riley and Mrs Smyth for all their support.”

      Oli will now attend the Conservatoire every Saturday from 8.30am to 5.30pm, September to June, until he is 18.

      Katie said: “Oli was offered free group lessons though Scot Gov Youth Music Initiative where tutors from RCS run a music centre in Dumfries.

      “He was later eligible for free instrumental lessons in P6 as he was on free school meals.

      “Simply, without the free lessons he would not have achieved what he has done.”

    50. Republicofscotland says:

      Its quite alarming to see SNP councillors get behind this wokie pledge, I mean trans issues aren’t even mentioned in what Scots feel need to be seen as priorities.

      1. Economy 52%
      2. Health47%
      3. Brexit 33%
      4. Employment/welfare 32%
      5. Education 26%
      6. Scottish independence 22%
      7. Environment 16%
      8. Housing 16%
      9. Tax & pensions 11%
      10. Immigration 9%

    51. Neil in Glasgow says:

      Obviously it’s pretty obvious whether someone is BAME but I’d be interested in when the list is finalised if you could do a little comparison, a bit like you did at the weekend, to see what proportion of candidates identify as having a disability and whether it’s far higher than it realistically should be. Although it’ll be unlikely we’ll ever really find out if their place was based on that due to privacy laws. Convenient some might say

    52. Bob Mack says:

      What the hell is going on? Surely this isn’t the best we could put up for election?

      Are there really no sensible folk left to enter politics.

    53. BoredHousewife says:

      Oh fabulous. So my options in the South are voting for a SPAD to NS in the Constituency seat in an attempt to block the wokeists gaining a List seat. Or leaving my Constituency vote blank because enough of the NS clique are already in power and risk these wokeists gaining more List seats.
      I’m actually scunnered with the lot of them now.

    54. TJenny says:

      Surely to goodness if she is dyslexic, someone would have proof read her statement before sending it to the printers. But maybe it was proof read and that is what she wanted to say, that she is out of indy.

    55. Liz says:

      If she is dyslexic you do realise a other pile on will ensue.
      How very dare we mock etc.

      The SNP are becoming more unectable by the day.
      This is not a holiday camp, we need the very best people for the job.

      Truth is, probably every single one of us could claim a disability, the scope is so wide

    56. Interesting article on this worthless yank cancel culture pish. Cancel culture? The yanks never had any to begin with. But their mind rot is coming across here on social media, as usual.

    57. David Duncan says:

      Can somebody explain what happens when trans rights impinge on others’ rights? What happens if someone feels threatened in a private or public space? Whose rights take precedence?

      Does an argument against/questioning of ANY aspect of trans rights make you a transphobe … or is it only an argument against/questioning of certain aspects which would make you one?

      Why would self identification in relation to anything be an acceptable position in a society which aspired to function with a semblance of coherent structure and normality?

      Would it be acceptable for a person to self identify as a trans rights sympathiser even if they held transphobic views?

      Would it be acceptable for a white man to self identify as a BAME woman?

      Would it be acceptable for an ‘Able bodied’ person to self identify as ‘Disabled’ … or vice versa?

      Can a dog self identify as a cat? Is it acceptable for that self identification to be made on the dog’s behalf? If so – by whom?

      Just asking as a ‘friend’ wants to self identify as a fox … or maybe a kangaroo … and wants me to help them do it.

      Just asking …

    58. Captain Yossarian says:

      Cast your mind back a few years and there was a complaint made by alpha-arsehole Pete Wishart about BBC journalist Stephen Daisley.

      Stephen Daisley was effectively hounded-out of his job and was unemployed for years. This seems to be the modus operandii of the SNP these days, doesn’t it?

      He is now working for The Spectator and is helping Fraser Nelson who is helping Andrew Neil to dismantle the Holyrood House of Cards.

      Sturgeon’s coterie of sweetie-wives is up against these three, plus Alex Salmond.

      Personally, I don’t fancy her chances.

    59. kapelmeister says:

      If she’s dyslexic then the local SNP better make sure she doesn’t put Vote for Hangman on her election posters.

    60. James Horace says:

      Craig Murray has been extremely quiet on twitter for the last two days. Has there been news of his verdict?

      Who knows? It’s “not up for debate”, apparently.

    62. holymacmoses says:

      Add to all the hard work the fact that Ms Hagmann is registered disabled. She is a real powerhouse.

    63. Republicofscotland says:

      Bob Mack @2.48pm.

      I believe there are sensible and competent folk still within the SNP, but they are too afraid to speak out, they obviously realise to do so would have serious consequences to their political career, and possibly there’s lives.

      Joanna Cherry has bravely spoken out, the result, she was fired from the front bench, and there’s probably a plan to try and force her out of the SNP, she’s also had many threats against her person two of which Police Scotland saw fit to take action, however as of yet the menacing folk have not been named. One could say that their identities have been kept hidden from the public.

      Who sits on Sturgeon’s cabinet that has that kind of power to wield, I think we all know who it is. So if you speak out, its likely you’ll face the wrath of not just the party but Crown office as well, as Craig Murray and Mark Hirst know all too well.

      Others in the crosshairs are Angus B. MacNeil, Kenny MacAskill, and Chris McEleny. all brave enough to speak out.

    64. Wee Chid says:

      “Add to all the hard work the fact that Ms Hagmann is registered disabled. She is a real powerhouse.”

      So if someone can achieve all that without a leg up why does she need one now? I’m sure there are others in the party who have greater disabilities who just get on with their job and don’t make an issue of it. Positive discrimination is meant to create a level playing field – She’s made it on the team without help so why now?

    65. Republicofscotland says:

      James Horace @2.57pm.

      James.

      I recall reading a comment from Craig that he felt under tremendous pressure due to the amount of time its taking to come to a verdict. I suppose that’s all part of the intimidating plan to have the Sword of Damocles hanging over your head for months, in the hope that it shatters your nerves and puts you off ever doing anything similar again. Mr Murray as far as I’m aware has a heart condition.

    66. Bob Maxwell says:

      So, all I have to do is get a nice wee banner made up with ‘I’m out of my face on trans’ add a few pronouns to my bio, maybe a rainbow thingy too with LGBTQ+, attend the odd rally or meeting screaming TERFS at old ladies crossing the street, and I’ll be welcomed into the inner or outer circle with open arms? Grow a beard and I’m in the NEC, say good things about Daddy Bear and self ID as disabled and I’m up for selection on the List.

      What’s not to like? I’ll be on a nice little £65k a year with benefits like Pete ‘twitter feet’ – good times!

      For anyone interested, the link below explains the urban myth of both votes SNP by region.

    67. Wee Chid says:

      As far as I can see the only list these people are punted to the top of is a list of famous dyslexic people. Did anyone give them their job because of their condition? Richard Branson, Tom Cruise, Walt Disney, Leonardo da Vinci and Albert Einstein.

      I rather think the results of that list would be very useful for us… and for that reason, someone higher up the food chain is going to have a quiet word in ms Blackman’s ear and it will never be published.

      Almost as if Ms Blackman isn’t very bright. ( But not enough to qualify for disability I hasten to add, just a bit thick.)

      I do wish all the wokies would go away and form a new party called the Raging Personality Disorder Party.

      “Katie Hagmann SNP (She/her)
      @KatieHagmannSNP
      SNP supporter, independence campaigner, dyslexic politician, local councillor for D&G”…..

      This is awfully tempting, if only I could do anagrams….

      As for Human Rights, I rather think, that from time immemorial they have always ‘been up for debate’, probably the reason democratic / debate based forms of Government came into being in the first place.

      Anyway, did anyone hear the joke about the dyslexic politician who stood for erections… they got ejected by the vipers at the electrons.

      Remember, the vote to amend the Bill in Holyrood that would allow Rape victims to be medically examined by same sex Docotors, once the SNP new they would lose, they all either abstained or voted for the amendment in order that their real stance on the issue would not become a matter of public record.

      Hello Breeks. You said: ‘The prospect of these vacuous, useless, non-entities seeking to become elected MP’s or MSP’s from the age of 12 screams out to me that the entrance requirements for a life in politics are currently set dangerously low. No wonder Scottish politics and local government is such a risible, feckless, shitfest.’

      Some politicians speak of being a politician as a ‘profession’. Even Nicola Sturgeon, I believe, thinks of herself as being a ‘professional politician to her fingertips’ who is ‘at the top of her profession’.

      Aye, right! Politics? The only ‘profession’ in the world which requires absolutely no qualifications whatsoever. The problem isn’t that ‘the entrance requirements for a life in politics are currently set dangerously low’ but that there are none.

      No entrance requirements whatsoever. Just anybody can become a politician. That may be one reason why so many of the daftest of them can become just anything they want to become. If they are men they can become women; if women, they can become men. ‘Because, after all, just look at me: I am an idiot who knows nothing and I became a politician! And I could even rise to the very top of my profession. So if a “vacuous nonentity” like me [to quote Breeks] can rise to be a top politician, anybody can be anything he or she or it wants to be, and we have to recognise that fact as a human right, and legislate accordingly, allowing us to lock up anybody who denies anyone else that right, or even pretends it is not a right at all.

      This is cloud cuckoo land. As Germaine Greer once said on radio – to a round of boos from the entirely vapid audience – ‘Just because you think you’re a cocker spaniel doesn’t mean you actually are one!’

      The idiots who booed her presumably thought they were cocker spaniels and wanted everyone to recognise them as such. They didn’t realise that they were undermining their own case simply by booing. If they were really and truly cocker spaniels they wouldn’t have booed, they would have barked.

      By saying that, I do not wish to deny that they were, in their own way, barking – barking mad, that is! The Sturgeon Nutter Party is truly unelectable – or would be, if people bothered to inform themselves about what it has now become. We need to wake as many of the electorate up to this fact as we can before it’s too late.

We’ll save you.” Would make for a great story. English men and women would be proud another tyrannical regime was defeated by British pluck and daring.

      Interestingly, and revealingly,the Twitter post of Kirsty Blackman in regard to the “pledge” does not state the intention is to ‘protect’ Trans Rights.

      What it actually says is “increase” Trans Rights.

      Common sense would reasonably interpret this as an intention to increase the rights of one self labelled group over and above the rights of all others, regardless of the needs of those who are clearly being offered by this bunch of puerile chancers who are manipulating the diverse Trans Community to advance their own career path at the trough on the backs of a vulnerable section of the wider community.

      As a result, this particular apparent Freudian slip reveals the real agenda of these grifters. To drive a wedge between the majority of ordinary people by elevating the rights of one group above all others on the basis that they, the grifters, have a monopoly on defining the terms of the narrative.

      A narrative which includes treating that community on whose backs they are launching their careers on as a single homogeneous and undifferentiated group with no diversity of opinion, views or approach beyond those defined by those claiming monopoly rights to determine and define the narrative and to be the sole monopoly representatives of that vulnerable Community.

      This is a straightforward right wing in origin divide and rule philosophically based approach courtesy of the regressive and reactionary nonsense spouted by the nonsense that is post modernisation.

      Unfortunately, this parasitic and exploitative approach is not limited to or corralled within one political party alone. In this case the SNP. Others have already identified the Green Party and the Lib Dems. It is also an approach which is now rife within a vociferous section of the self labelled “Left” inside and outside of the Labour Party who are turning on others within the wider left who are considered to be guilty of “wrongthink” in the fantasy world of these management clone twelve year olds who are busy no platforming their own comrades at free speech events for the crime of protecting the free speech of others.

      As detailed here:

      http://steelcityscribblings.uk/wp/2021/02/15/no-platforming-and-the-so-called-left/

      The point being this issue is problematic across all the main political party options on offer in Scotland, not just the SNP. And any attempt to improve the situation will have to take that reality into consideration.

I’m retired: I am sure that modern coms would make that so much easier, with spellcheckers being another help.

      I believe dyslexics may be seen to have other skills, for example my brother’s ability to think in 3D amazes me. I’ve been told by a teacher of disadvantaged children that it’s not unusual, but I’ve never looked for confirmation.

      This is precisely what the objective is. It’s absolutely not that NS and her wee circle have decided to platform trans rights as the road to independence. It’s that this is the most effective way to destroy the current SNP and therefore any meaningful opportunity to achieve independence. No ifs or buts. This is sabotage.

      When you consider that you don’t need any qualifications, just a willingness to toe the party line, then being an MSP is a terrific option to a real job. You can earn up to double what you might expect otherwise, with benefits and lots more opportunities for similar positions. You don’t have to think too hard, or have your own opinions, just sign up and knowing the level of support for independence if selected you are on to a winner. Holyrood is the enabler of the status quo and rewards its incumbents richly for not rocking the boat. Trebles all round.

      I’ve only been reading wings for a wee while ( can’t remember how I stumbled across it but thank god I did ) I’ve never read him to be abusive to anyone , shape form or gender , the hatred towards him is horrific, but not surprising given the numbnuts we’re supposed to support now
      My neighbour is a trans man and is more feminine now than she / he / them ever was

      They’ve ruined rainbows for me. I used to look at them and think of beautiful things, pots of gold, the visible spectrum of colour wavelengths, the wonders of the universe, etc., now I look at them and think of nasty scheming bastards.

      In the Christian scheme of things aren’t they also meant to represent some sort of promise by God unto us that he won’t collectively punish us with a mass drowning event again? You have to wonder what he makes of all this…

      Betsy,

      That twitter thread is hilarious – certainly not the response he was looking for.

      I was lamenting earlier that there’d be a move against Wings after May. Well I hope they do, the backlash would sink them without trace.

      Kids with learning difficulties take quite a bit of resources to ensure there education is somewhat successful with varying results as you can imagine. They’re usually very bright and a lot of talent is not getting to realise it’s full potential. In an independent Scotland I’d like to see all kids get all the help they need.

      Parading something like that as a badge of distinction, hoping for personal and political gain while still hiding behind it when awkward questions are asked is the work of gutless cowards.

      Pete Wishart shouting down anyone who wants May’s election as a plebiscite, Wishart says it would be disastrous, and that the Scottish public really wouldn’t want it.

      Who is Wishart to say that Scots wouldn’t want May’s election as a plebiscite, and when he speaks of disaster, exactly who would it be disastrous for. Isn’t the SNP’s remit to bring independence to Scotland, and if the people are quite happy to see May’s elections as a plebiscite, then shouldn’t Wishart et al pull out all the stops to make that happen.

      By reneging on this golden opportunity to dissolve this nasty union, Wishart et al are no longer doing our bidding we didn’t elect him or others to pass up this great chance to leave the union.

      Wee Patrick could do with some help. He’s got competition in the form of the Scottish Green Alliance. OK they are on the unionist side but they are only interested in environmental issues. That might attract a few over.

      Patrick’s Greens don’t have that many votes to spare…

      The SNP might have the courage of its convictions and adopt the rainbow as its symbol.
      In similar vein, the national flag, that St Andrew thing lacks colour diversity and is embarrassingly Christian to boot.

      But hold on gender guerrillas and equality warriors:

      « I am a social democrat – I believe in pursuing greater equality and tackling social justice – but… you can’t do that unless you have a strong economy, unless you have a vibrant business base earning the wealth that makes that possible. »

      @ to everyone who mentioned that dyslexia was a spectrum of learning disabilities.
      At the university where I work, when a student asks for special exam conditions because of dyslexia we contact the Dyslexia Centre, check the student is registered (no self-Id) and consult with a doctor in the centre, describing the type of exam and its duration.
      Depending on where the student is on the spectrum, appropriate exam conditions may range from extra time to providing a reader or scribe. As examiners we accept the doctor’s recommendation and so does the student.

      I’m sure this is the persons leaflet I posted on MSM, to warn people she was on the Woke or BAME candidates list, so they would know not to vote for her.
      Well done Stu for spotting the mistake there. “OF instead of OUT.”
      I missed that, I must improve my proof reading skills. LOL

      I may be a Scot living in New Zealand, but I’m 100% behind Scotland being independent of WM. Independence with good governance, not with the corrupt cabal that is now the SNP.
      I will never forgive NS for what she has done to a well respected party.
      A party that was respected by all that worked & governed it, before Nicola took over the golden challis that Alex handed her.

      .
      RepublicanofScotland at 2.46pm,

      Thank you for that important ranking.

      It makes me think that Nicola and her McWokeists should have let us all know her Woke agenda as per your rankings on the list you posted at the beginning of this thread.

      What would happen when she ran her first Holyrood election as SNP leader. If Nicola had been honest from the start and let Scotland know her manifesto then ALL of this misunderstanding with Nicola dirking Alex in the back and shafting Joanna Cherry etc., would never have had to happen.

      Also humour can cure a lot of this nastiness.

      Nicola, for the May 2021 election, try the slogan and video…

      VOTE SNP GET WOKE…

      https://tinyurl.com/bf4a5lgs

      That is far better than your Groundhog Day lies, lies, lies when Sturgeon advertises this…

      VOTE SNP GET INDEPENDENCE.

      (Terms and conditions apply. You may lose all your IndyRef mandates if you fail to read the small print. In our newspeak party political broadcasts, the words “IndyRef” and “trans-rights” mean the same thing. The 96.4% of Scottish YES voters who rank IndyRef above Wokerati as a government priority are wrong wrong wrong.

      What a refreshing change. Nicola tells the truth.

      In all seriousness, do the Sturgeonite McWokeists really believe that by infiltrating the SNP and dishonestly highjacking the IndyRef movement for their own narrow selfish niche trans requirements; that such a dissembling strategy will work?

    173. 100%Yes says:

      Please don’t make excuses for her, she knew what she was doing and hoping that the backlash if there was one she could use the I’m dyslexic. It was a deliberate attempt at fooling the electorate into believing she wasn’t for Independence and probably isn’t, isn’t it amazing how all the other wording is correct while the one thing at the very end of leaflet is about Independence when a party who’s only goal is Independence why isn’t it at front and center of her leaflet. Everyone knows in Scotland the SNP is a party for Independence so why try and hide the fact that your standing on a ticket for Independence when we are being told by the SNP (New Labour party for Scotland) that the up and coming election Independence will be front and center of the SNP (New Labour party for Scotland) campaign. Why are the SNP embarrassed to say they want Independence at the FRONT AND CENTER of all there leaflets.
