Nicola Sturgeon’s Identity Crisis

Posted on February 08, 2023 by

The title of this article might sound a bit like the name of a band making their debut at Glastonbury this year, but in fact it’s something infinitely more serious.

News broke late last night that the person we must presumably now refer to as an “individual” who had been arrested in connection with the disappearance of a missing Galashiels schoolgirl (happily found safe and well and back home with her parents) had in fact been charged with an as-yet-unspecified crime.

But the alleged crime wasn’t the only thing going unspecified.

Curiously, none of this morning’s newspaper reports of the charging gave the suspect’s name, even though several papers had named him yesterday.

The exception was the BBC website, which confirmed previous statements that the suspect was local butcher “Andrew Miller, also known as Amy George”.

Wings Over Scotland once again emphasises that there has been no trial, and that we have no idea whether the person who will appear in court tomorrow to be formally charged has in fact committed any crime. Every accused person has the right to the presumption of innocence.

But what we can talk about is how extremely peculiar it is that every news outlet in the country, and Police Scotland, are suddenly quite sure that their suspect is a man.

Because as we revealed yesterday, and as numerous sources had attested, Andrew Miller/Amy George (also known as Amy Miller or Amy G Miller) has been living as a woman – to use the Scottish Government’s official yet undefined terminology – in the small Borders community for several years.

And we now have hard evidence of that fact. A little over two years ago, “Amy Miller” was featured as part of the Scotland Loves Local campaign highlighting small businesses fighting to recover from the effects of the COVID pandemic.

Five months earlier “Amy” had featured in a similarly-themed piece in the Daily Mail.

We won’t know until tomorrow what name the suspect will be charged under. But it doesn’t really matter, because while “Andrew Miller” and “Amy George” do maintain separate current Facebook accounts, BOTH of them identify as female.

That means that under the stated policies of both the Scottish Government and Police Scotland, the suspect who’ll appear in front of a sheriff tomorrow is a woman, and referring to him as male is both a breach of the SNP’s “transphobia” rules and a breach of Police Scotland’s policy on self-identification.

It’s also very likely to be an offence under the Hate Crime And Public Order (Scotland) Act passed by the Scottish Parliament almost two years ago.

(Although it’s impossible to state that with any degree of certainty, as the Act is so vaguely and subjectively worded. The Act does, though, expressly include cross-dressers as “transgender”, so any suggestion that Andrew Miller is simply a cross-dressing man, as an explanation for how he’s being referred to in the press and by Police Scotland, would appear to fail immediately.)

And what that means is that the awkward questions which have plagued the First Minister for the last couple of weeks aren’t going to go away any time soon – in fact, they’re going to be joined by even more that she doesn’t have any good answers for.

Is Andrew Miller a man or a woman?

Is Amy George a man or a woman?

Are Andrew Miller, Amy George and Amy Miller – who appear to exist simultaneously in the same body – the same person, or are they only one of them at any given moment?

(There’s already a precedent in Scotland for someone being charged with crimes as both a man and a woman.)

If one of them is found guilty of a crime, could the others be innocent? If they were convicted and sentenced to imprisonment, would they go to a men’s prison (because of their body), a women’s prison (because of how they identify), or would they have to be separated somehow?

If they’re only one person but that person identifies as a woman some of the time and a man some of the time (like bank director Philip/Pippa Bunce), would they have to be moved between prisons on a day-to-day basis?

Nicola Sturgeon has been running away from these questions for a long time. It looks as though they may finally be about to catch up with her, and it seems highly unlikely that the effect on the campaign for independence will be a positive one.

    I posted this on the last thread and I will also post it here:

    Haven’t commented much of late but, in my humble opinion, the SNP are a busted flush and a term or two in the political wilderness will do the Scottish electorate a power of good – and that’s from someone who has voted for them for decades. In the meantime, Alba will surely grow to become the party we can all believe in.

    The police, on the other hand, can be questioned as to who and what they have in custardy and why have the gendered him/her as they have.

    Appreciate the care that has been taken by the Rev to define clearly the scope of the blog above.
    I.e. this is not about the guilt or innocence of he/she who has been arrested but the very predictable dog’s breakfast that has been cooked-up by the ultra-wokes in the SNP and most mainstream parties.
    The only point I want to make is that, under Mr Salmond, this would not have happened because he had the political nous to recognise the risks that might ensue from digging beneath the tokenistic veneer that covers-up the MDF of current government policy.
    It is very interesting to view his current rise to respectable status once more after the nadir of his court case and the maelstrom that blew-up after his arrest. He has conducted himself with dignity, intelligence, and passion, and I will never forget his statement to the Holyrood committee when he, quite rightly identified that the failings in his case were not the result of a generalised misfeasance, but failings in leadership.
    I was no AS admirer 10 years ago but I have to salute his courage in fighting on for a just cause and biding his time to strike back at those who sought to destroy him.
    I have no doubt how that independence will only come though Alex. NS, in terms of independence, is dead.

  7. Stephen says:

    But but but Nicola said this would never happen! All trans woman are all lovely humans and women have nothing to fear as after all a trans woman are indeed a woman. How dare anyone say otherwise on fear of being jailed. ????

  8. I. Despair says:

    The Daily Telegraph (in an article released last night) also went with reporting the male and female names of the man who’s been arrested. Interestingly, the story’s take was that this was a “snub” to Queen Nicola by refusing to indulge any nonsense about claiming to feel like a lady and therefore being one. I see more likelihood in the current sad state of public life in this country that the authorities will quietly collude to try and save Nicoliar’s blushes by not meeting the trans word.

  9. Towbar Sullivan says:

    Dearie me what a mess the blessed Nicola has gotten herself into. Oh dear, how sad, never mind. See that’s whit happens when you’ll no listen tae anybody else who may actually be talking sense. My way or the highway right enough. Hell bloody mend her.

    Stuart, how on earth do you manage to remain sane having to wade through this day after day.

  11. Giesabrek says:

    “If one of them is found guilty of a crime, could the others be innocent?”

    Extending that logic, if the cube was committed as one identity, does that mean the individual could avoid prison by reverting to the other identity and argue against false imprisonment?

  17. Lorna Campbell says:

    Thank you for this, Rev. At least this time, she cannot claim that it was a man larping as a woman at the last minute before sentencing. This person, if he turns out to have committed an offence, has been known as a ‘trans woman’ for some time. But, hey, this never happens. As India Willoughby put it, “there are bad apples in every group”. Yes, that is true, but there seems to be rather a large number of them fermenting away in the ‘trans’ barrel, if the evidence is correct – which makes sense if you consider that the ‘trans’ phenomenon is deeply rooted in sexual lady feelz. Jordan Peterson, Canadian psychologist recently called autogynephiles who claim the condition has nothing to do with sex, liars.

    Original name and DNA as main identifiers works for me.

  22. John Main says:

    I can remember back to the good old days when Scotland featured in the “big” news so seldom that you could almost believe that Scotland did not exist.

    Now every day sees a new national and international story from Auld Scotia, as she forges a brave new identity on the world stage. And what an identity that is!

    Yup, things were defo better in the past.

    But to be serious for a mo:

    That means that under the stated policies of both the Scottish Government and Police Scotland, the suspect who’ll appear in front of a sheriff tomorrow is a woman, and referring to him as male is both a breach of the SNP’s “transphobia” rules and a breach of Police Scotland’s policy on self-identification.

    I am very happy indeed to support a crowd fund for a private prosecution if this “mis gendering” breaks any Scottish law.

    It’d soon reveal to all the die hard nawbags who romanticise the bygone years of Slabber, that they’re actually shit at playing pretendy branch office manager too. Only they’d do it without all the mitigation of *free stuff* they bitterly complain about.

    “Are Andrew Miller, Amy George and Amy Miller – who appear to exist simultaneously in the same body – the same person, or are they only one of them at any given moment?”

    An answer, of sorts, can be found here:

    And, lest anyone considers the situation described on this WOS blog post to be head explodingly complex, consider the potential complexities of the self-id trajectory should – as in all liklihood it will – a future case emerge involving someone who self-identifies as ‘Wolfie the Furry Fox’, ‘Bernie Bull B*****ks’ ‘Billy the Friendly Goat’, or ‘Don Key the Scrumptious Hee-Haw’.

    The men’s/women’s prison/toilets/spaces/whatever question could well become expanded to accommodate the self-id demand to be housed/incarcerated in the local cattery/dogs home/(secure) factory farm/zoo/wildlife park?

    For the hard of thinking – you know who you are – the argument of this being far fetched is no more far fetched than the present situation, as accurately described here, would have been even five years ago.

    Does anyone know how many people have been found guilty and sentenced under the Hate Crime and Public Order Act?

    I believe it won’t really come into effect til next year due to police, judges, etc having to undergo extensive training. It won’t however stop the usual subjects trying to use the act to silence opponents, which of course was the entire point of the bill in the first place. I would however imagine that once fully enacted the act will fall apart after a few major cases come to court.

    This does not make one iota of difference to the indepence movement in Scotland,
    However,It was meant to.

    If anything it should encourage us further to achieve our goal, for our society is being experimented on, our laws are being changed from afar,
    To separate ourselves from the cult running rife around the world of ideological theory thinking.
    And return our Country of Scotland back into a reality based structure of older values.

    Where people will once more, be Sovereign and will be able to hold a more local government to account.
    For me and many more like me, I have had enough of idiotic political policies from abroad and down south.

    It is time to stop the intrusion into Scotland, to become a independent Country, where people literally throw out politicians like the snp, Greens Labour, lib Dems and tories and start new choices of who to vote for,
    At the moment under UK laws politicians are protected parties of people by laws, this should not be so, they should be subject to criminal offences, like, “Intent to defraud and mislead the public/ people for financial personal benefits” the return of Scottish sovereignty in a independent Scotland would see many dispotic laws against society removed.
    Scots people, do not think like the elite and landed gentry of outside politics.

    Last month I watched the House return to the Republicans in America, under “Questioning” the Democrats were asked why they had funded research for scientist to research.


    For God sake why would you want to know that,
    Unless you were thinking of babies and children as sexual objects.

    To some degree Scotland more than ever have to become independent sooner rather than later,
    No more imported laws to gain access to women, Children or babies,

    We in Scotland have to be legally able vote as sovereign people to throw out this sexual perversion and domination preys on the weak and the vulnerable in our society.

    Here is another good reason to take back control of Scotland.
    What was the resulting decision of a bad judge, when Mr Carmicheal, the politician was taken to court for lying by his constitutents,
    The judge decided that it was legal to lie to people.

    The rot in America, UK, Canada, and many western and European governments is Embedded so deeply it is beyond mending.

    Scotland has to be able to choose a new path, to find its own safer future away from perverted politics, and return to at least some old fashioned values of morality.

    It is akin to living through Sodom and Gomorra times with our present leaders, full of sins and lies.

    Scotland Country and people have to walk away and don’t look back.

    It could get even more insane if they identify as non-human seeing as ‘anime-gender’, ‘cat-gender’ and other equally crazy examples exists and must be declared valid if you want to avoid being accused of a hate crime.

    All of this could have been avoided if the SNP remained to be a party where science and facts mattered and if it hadn’t purged hundreds of members as entryists came in to exert an incredible amount of power over the FM.

    As for independence, it’s dead for at least a generation. The cracks aren’t going to heal in weeks, or even years as ‘Queer’ ideology is going to be with us for a while yet. Even if it collapses over the next decade (which I think will happen) people have given their lives to what is cultlike thinking so deprogramming them will take time. The best thing we can do is try to keep the idea alive until this passes as is seen as a dark point in human history

    I think when we look back on the downfall of Sturgeon the vote against that amendment to exclude trans ‘women’ rapists and the like from female prisons will be seen as a really pivotal moment.

    Nothing has focussed the public and media’s mind on the fundamental insanity that the GRRB entails than putting that horrible double rapist into a woman’s prison.

    Most ordinary people are so staggered that someone could do that it has made them realize that the SNP they voted for are fucking crazy bastards.

    Since then the awareness damn has been breached and the gap with the water pouring through is only going to get wider and wider and then the water is going to become a torrent that will sweep this lunatic regime away.

    Salmond as FM proved that an SNPG could outperform Westminster with ease.

    Sturgeon as FM is proving the SNPG are a danger and we need WM to protect us from there lunatic policies. It is almost like it is deliberate. I mean sending rapists into women’s prisons… not even the world’s biggest moron does that.

  46. James Che says:

    It is of upmost importance that Scotland escapes from the debauchery, lie’s and deceit, and ideology.
    To choose a new government for our independent Scotland with laws that do not protect lobbyist, outside funding and politicians,

    Our biggest achievement would be to protect its “real”citizens,
    And then Scotland will attract like mind people to its Country,

    Apparently if it comes to decisions on remand or incarceration, it won’t matter whether this person is a man or a woman because according to the FM, allocation to a M or F prison is based on the offence! Simply nonsensical way to run a criminal justice system.

  53. Republicofscotland says:

    What’s intriguing about this story is when it broke the media referred to the “individual” as a MAN which contravenes Sturgeon’s GRRB and it will in the future if they continue to name the “individual” as a man be at odds with Holyrood’s HCB.

    What’s also interesting is that the Scottish press in later headline then changed their tune and referred to the “individual” as a trans butcher.

    So what changed between the first headlines and the second headlines to go from calling the individual a MAN to then calling the “individual” a trans butcher.

    The first headlines describing the “individual” as a MAN was probably an attack against Sturgeon’s unamended GRRB, the media falling into line with the Westminster governments take on it and the S35 block by Alister Jack.

    But why the latter change to trans butcher in the description of the individual, possibly another angle of attack from the media on Sturgeon and her woeful unamended GRRB. I’m under the impression that the media are onboard with the trans gender movement regardless of how many young folk it maims, Sturgeon however is still seen as the figurehead in the Scottish independence movement in Scotland and ergo she’s fair game on the subject, even though she has no intentions of ever pushing for Scottish independence.

    Sturgeon’s utter incompetence, and selfishness, and pig headedness to try and push through her GRRB when the majority of Scots neither wants it or voted for it, has given the Westminster government and the unionists a great opportunity to demonise the entire indy movement via its supposed figurehead Sturgeon through the unwanted GRRB, yet Sturgeon is so focused on making sure her unamended GRRB does reach the giddy heights that she wants it to, that she prepared to make a fool of herself (she can’t say a male rapist isn’t a woman) and by making a fool of herself she as figurehead of the indy movement she makes a fool of us all, and in the broader picture Scots as a whole.

    I think Sturgeon will bring Scotland to its knees before she gives up on her unamended GRRB, the more vulnerable in Scotland are already close to if not already over the tipping point on the cost of living in the union crisis along with the disgraceful cost of energy in an energy rich country.

    Sturgeon MUST stand down as FM with immediate effect for the sake of the entire country.

  54. Old Fashioned Straight for Yes says:

    It has taken a while, but Rev Stu warned a long time ago that this day would come. And that day has come because the ordinary, sensible, decent people of Scotland have been made aware of what Stu told us would occur. Those who follow Wings have been given a heads-up on this.

    The crazy bollocks that duped the mentally sub-normal of Holyrood was concocted elsewhere, and incubated among the Edinburgh Toff class. The private-school educated Anglos of Edinburgh; Its salons, law chambers, golf clubs, saunas, bordellos and bath-houses frequented by the Nomklatura, the upper reaches of the SNP, Lib Dems, New Labour, and the Greens and other libertines and perverts.

    But now it is in Sun and the Record – and so out in the schemes and the pubs and the gyms and fitba teams. Whit the Fuck!

    I am not young anymore. When I was growing up it was second nature that men who wanted to dress up as women were up to no good. That ladies toilets and changing rooms were for women and girls, and that any pervert who lurked in the vicinity, never mind enter them would be dealt with either by very formidable women – or by the polis or both.

    Any boy who had the idiocy to express such a desire would have been educated out of it by his peers. But somewhere along the line, something rotten set in, and the Edinburgh cognoscenti gradually leaked out their sewage.

    The hollowing out of civic Scotland and the replacement of grass-roots political parties by SPADS and short money, among other things,has allowed this to happen

    Well the plain folk of Scotland – especially in the non-nonsense West are onto them. Their time will be called. Their time is up. Thanks Rev!

    Who’s the Daddy….of all this?
    On his sex spectrum all inclinations are «normal», nothing is perverse.
    Like all research the devil is the sample.

    «To the general public, Kinsey’s presentation of his data as scienti?c was convincing, as his books acceptance and incorporation into popular culture amply demonstrate. It helped that the research had been funded by the prestigious and extremely well known Rockefeller Foundation. Within the wider scienti?c community Kinsey’s ?ndings and methodology were greeted a fair amount of skepticism. Beyond the basic problem of self-report data, a larger concern is the representativeness of samples. Although Kinsey presented his data as broadly representative of the American male population, a substantial element of his samples consisted of prisoners and sex offenders, a fact widely criticized at the time. Kinsey simply worked with a population that was cooperative and easy to ?nd»

    The «science» here is flawed. Scientific method traduced.
    This no sphere for serious politics.

    I think some people need to wake up and do some wider research,
    This theoretical gender dysphoria is imported to Scotland through funding infiltrating ” the British devolved government ” to Scotland.
    The Snp are merely paid for puppets, bought and sold.

    But you have to ask question of yourselves like.

    Why is Canada having the same problems of trans self ID’ing ?
    As was Austrailia.

    If it is a Snp idea how did they change trans law in other Countries ?

    How come the SNP energy Crises is in Germany and across the Western world.

    How Has the SNP controlled the restriction of petrol prices when the same problem is in the other major Western Countries?

    Basic homework finds the Snp, and EVRY other political party around the world acting as paid for puppets to big corporation funding,
    The SNP are bad, awful, wicked and perhaps following a world wide cult, they are simply one piece of a bigger jigsaw puzzle, that is causing Chaos and instability around the world.

    You save your Country, you Save your people, from bigger politics than the orders received by the SNP
    yes the Snp are dead ducks, yes they are taking the same orders as all other governments, yes they are being paid to do it.

    But without checking the facts of what is going on else where, your blind, you think if The SNP go, the other problems will too,
    NO, That is naive, they will simple replace the SNP with other ducks that are ready and waiting in the wings, no pun intended.

    No matter how many paid for puppets go through the devolved governments revolving doors .
    It ain’t gonna solve our problem.

    Why lower your Standards to lowly SNP, the solution to the difficulty in Scotland is to make all the chaos causing political parties that think they are above the law, and therefore steal your sovereign rights as humans, Homeless,

    The body of corruption is salient in the devolved parliament, A devolved parliament that barricades itself from public accountability.
    By all means just change the party in office, But the next party that enters is also protected under UK law, and will act the same corrupting way,

    We, the people of Scotland, have to choose a new government, not just a new party. If we are serious about looking after, and protecting the people that live here.

    It would be a truely enlightening moment when suddenly Scots realise they have not had a Scottish parliament since 1707,
    But that is asking to much of most people that do not do their homework in research.

  58. Breeks says:

    “IF” the SNP had ANY individual decency and true desire to see Scottish Independence, they should be using their time left in office to build bridges with ALBA, and try to undo some of the damage Sturgeon has done.

    People whom Sturgeon has led up the garden path are going to be angry and disillusioned with Sturgeon, but they’ve also been briefed that ALBA is the devil incarnate. We need to make it easy on those people to admit they were wrong; a lot like YES attitudes towards NO voters moving over to YES. You had to bite your lip sometimes, but it had to be done.

    That said, I see precious little evidence of wisdom breaking out amongst the SNP. In fact, between Smith remembering to mention Europe, MacDonald advancing his opinion that a de facto referendum, Swinney, Robertson, Yousaf… If you were cynical like me, you might be forgiven for thinking they’re trying to raise their profile as if they anticipated a Leadership election happening soon… With Sturgeon in trouble, they’re coming over all brave.

    Contrition, and the mere prospect of working with ALBA still seems a remote shout… at least for now.

    The Twitler Youth are unhinged in their misguided hatred for Alex Salmond. The toxic indoctrination seems strongest in the young and impressionable, but I get the unscientific impression that it’s much less resonant now. People are challenging the defamatory rhetoric, but we cannot let these immature children decide such things. Independence is too important.

    There’s almost a parallel to be drawn with an honourable MP who’s been accused of something, and steps back from politics to clear his name. It’s feels like the entire SNP needs to take a big time-out from politics and just get their shit together.

    Meantime, if the transition to ALBA is still too steep a climb, then at least start talking up the chances of a Constitutional Convention, or Convention of the Estates, where ALL Independence Supporters can come together and leave their Parties and weapons at the door beside any asinine theories on gender.

    Nobody knows how devastating this might be to Independence. Sturgeon isn’t even finished yet. But surely there need to be contingencies drawn up just in case the SNP is blighted and utterly beyond redemption, even under new leadership.

  59. George Ferguson says:

    I got a surprise when I saw the titled heading of an article “Wings For Freedom”. Thought something is happening. These pesky MSM journalists keep teasing us.

  60. Mel says:

    Interesting that, as part of living as a ‘woman’ – in brackets as we women just live, one of the requirements is to have a female name in official documents such as passport or driving licence. Is Brookly, Tiger Lily, Blue or Harper male or female?

    Never knew it was so easy. Though must be a pig to keep track of everyone, though I imagine dodging tax bills and debts would be a great reason for anyone to change. Can real women living as a woman change their name willy nilly (no pun intended).

    So how does it work? Can we all just choose any name to appear on any official documents? Must it be the same for all? Anyway, I’m changing mine. Is CHER or Brad Pitt more likely to get me an upgrade on a flight?

    The mind boggles.

    John C and Tinto Chiel

    Police Scotland are already expressing disquiet (exasperation?) about the time scale and there are doubts about being up to speed for the implementation of the Hate Crime legislation in 2024. There have also been concerns about costs to policing.

    However, you might think it easier to prosecute someone for a ribbon tied to a fence than arrest someone for threatening posters so it could become a bit of a pick-and-mix as to which ‘crimes’ are prosecuted and which simply ignored. Partial exercise of the law, if it happens too often, might bring the law into disrepute. ( Some members of the bench are too lofty to care about public perception of their sometimes bizarre interpretations even yet.)

    Anyway, we have already seen how legal institutions as well as other institutions like universities, schools, NHS, have rushed to implement legislation before it is actually law as we can see from the ridiculous situation of the double rapist being addressed as a women in court. You know, when the law makes itself ridiculous then it risks losing consent.

    Perhaps that is what Police Scotland might be afraid of. How many arrests for charging people for some of the many inadvertent infractions of the future Hate Crime Law will it take before the public becomes angry?

    How many of these daft prosecutions could the media stomach too? In the recent past they have been perfectly amenable to collude in hiding details (as in the Alex Salmond trial) to misdirect the public, so I suppose, they are perfectly capable of doing that again.

    The recent reporting of the Galashiels case shows a certain amount of confusion in the ranks regarding how to address the person arrested. In the past they have been perfectly content to report crimes committed by transgender males as crimes committed by a woman. ( A little wobble in the fabric of the media universe perhaps as a result of the Adam Ramsay scandal?)

    Some people in power might relish a virtual police state. We certainly have everything in place for it – complaisant media, public institutions, even part of the public already captured by an authoritarian mind set. I can think of quite a few members of the Scottish Parliament who would love that kind of control and they are not all in the SNP.

  62. James Che says:

    Many of the yes movement for a independent Scotland are patient, have been since 2014,

    Another day, and yet more stupidity from the Scottish Government’s gender ideology obsession.

    For those quite rare individuals, who in the past slipped under most folks radar, who genuinely have some difficulty with their biological sex, this must be annoying. Before the likes of pro trans diktat group stonewall started huffing and puffing, I do not doubt that the Prison service used common sense. But no, the gender cultists screamed and shouted that we MUST accept that trans women are indeed, actual REAL women.

    And now look where we are. Like many folk, if a bloke wanted to dress as a lady and get called by a lady name, I frankly would not care, and would indeed have no problem calling them by their chosen name. Seriously, it is of no matter whatsoever. BUT, if they insisted that it simply wasn’t good enough, and they demanded the right to undress (with their tadger out) in girls changin rooms, or use womens toilets, on threat of violence, rape or murder of REAL women, then I’d take issue.

    In my experience, most folk didn’t really care in the past. But they certainly do now. You simply cannot be having ‘trans’ folk walking about posing with axes and threatening to rape and behead women, without society reacting badly. And THAT is exactly what has happened. Well done ‘stonewall. Well done, ‘Scottish equality network’.

    I do not doubt their are genuine transexual folk, or similar, who really just want to get on with their lives as best as possible without drawing attention. I do feel sorry for them. In all of this, sadly, they have been let down by the gender cultists, the violent misogynistic thugs and their abusive, violent associates, and, by extension, the SNP Scottish government.

    One does wonder when, or even IF, the Scottish Government will recognise the magntiude of the damage they have done. Fools, driven by an unproven homophobic, women-hating ideology that denies medical and scientific fact.

    My goodness, Nicola, what an utter shambles, eh?

  74. Colin Dawson says:

    I believe that the Scottish Government’s longstanding policy of allowing gender self-ID (i.e. without a GRC) and insisting that all public bodies and publicly funded organisations do likewise or face the existential threat of losing their public funding is a breach of the Equalities Act and is thus unlawful. The UK Government’s interpretation of the Equalities Act aligns with mine as evidenced by their response to a recent petition asking that the Equalities Act be amended to clarify what a woman is. In my opinion, the Scottish Government could be subject to litigation from anyone who has been adversely affected by this unlawful policy. This could result in hundreds of thousands of claims and a cost to the public purse that could run into the billions. Perhaps the Scottish Government and/or publicly funded organisations in Scotland are belatedly realising this and adjusting their policies to become lawful?

  75. Tinto Chiel says:

    JGedd: “Perhaps that is what Police Scotland might be afraid of. How many arrests for charging people for some of the many inadvertent infractions of the future Hate Crime Law will it take before the public becomes angry?”

    Yes, and ridicule as well as anger may undermine this act in the long run. I doubt whether the more Olympean-minded Law Lords would lose much sleep about what the proles might think about it but I suspect that the police, who would be confronted with its absurdities on a day-by-day basis, might themselves feel uncomfortable and even resentful about enforcing it.

    If extensive training for judges and police is deemed to be required to implement this law then it suggests it is deeply flawed.

I don’t think the SNP took into account that the police, the people at the front line of this, would have to know what they’re doing. I think the SNP expected them to just fall in line so they could go and nick all the people they didn’t like for saying ‘transphobic’ things.

    The Daily Telegraph (in an article released last night) also went with reporting the male and female names of the man who’s been arrested. Interestingly, the story’s take was that this was a “snub” to Queen Nicola by refusing to indulge any nonsense about claiming to feel like a lady and therefore being one. I see more likelihood in the current sad state of public life in this country that the authorities will quietly collude to try and save Nicoliar’s blushes by not meeting the trans word.

    I get the feeling that elements of the police have been able to use the debate around recent events (the GRR Bill, the rapist, & now the trans identified butcher) to adopt a clear stance. The February edition of online mag 1919, which says that it is Police Federation funded but editorially independent, has two articles critical of SNP conduct, in government generally, by Alex Massie, & on the failure to consult the police on the GRR Bill, by 1919 staff .

    Article New gender laws risk ‘heaping further pressure’ on police
    URL https://
    quotes David Hamilton, Chair of the Scottish Police Federation who said the force was not consulted on these new responsibilities, and “It was utterly irresponsible of the Scottish Parliament to foist this additional workload on Police Scotland at such a late stage in proceedings.
    It is frankly unbelievable that nobody consulted policing on the cost or practicalities of these well-intentioned but ill-thought-out amendments.”

    It is worth also having a look at their article by Alex Massie article https:// Why is so much Holyrood legislation ‘second-rate’?</B
    " if the experience of the Scottish Government’s gender recognition reforms proves anything, it is that the committee system is not functioning properly."

    "the Scottish Government now contracts out significant parts of the legislative process to third parties.
    Often these are favoured interest groups, many of which depend on the government for a significant portion of their income.
    This then helps create a closed policy loop, impervious to revision. "

    "Untrammelled authority very easily slips into arrogance and complacency.
    Hence the manner in which the SNP, grown fat on victory, now governs Scotland in increasingly imperial fashion. "

    And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
    Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
    Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
    The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
    And on the pedestal, these words appear:
    My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings;

    But all of it was a mess from the beginning and some in Westminster warned that it would open the floodgates to the discrimination and loss of legal protection for women. And undermine safeguarding.
    Long before the self I.D reform,deviant men have been housed in womens’ prison in England and Wales and Scotland and this increased substantially from 2018.
    Trans lobbyist have had hundreds of thousands of pounds and years to promote trans ideology to school children even without parental knowledge or consent.
    In fact the model from the USA is to remove the care of the parents from the cult victims so that they can be put on the path to destroying their fertility and minds.
    I am sure it is not all stupidity and that some MSPs and MPs
    either follow the ideology or are agents of the destruction of Womens’ rights, childrens’ safeguarding and utter fracturing of society.
    It is vital to support women now.
    The youngster who think they are Trans mainly don’t look any different except for blue or purple hair they don’t often don’t even dress as the opposite sex that they desire to be but call themselves the opposite gender as if the idea is all they neec. They have bought the language & ideology .
    On the one hand you could say the FM was courting the youth vote but on the other hand they are being groomed to have no loyalty to family, community, peer group or country if it doesnt mirror their cult ideology. So in effect they are not voters at all.
    It is mental torture to he female vulrable and encarcerated a d have the threat of men being somewhere on the estate.
    But the threat and changes women are facing in a daily basis in health care settings, social, etc is enormous. Women who say a trans identifying man is not a woman have been arrested.
    It is thought police for standing up for your own safety amid a culture awash with misogyny and violent pornography accessible even to young children.
    Time everybody spoke up and say this is not acceptable for society. Women and children are murdered every day and we are supposed to take any deviant at face value because he has a label that says he is a woman.
    Really if you are so deluded that you think your are the opposite sex you are a danger anyway, you challenge women when you cross dress you demean them and you take rights faway from women to be safe when you already have your own rights as a MAN.

    “…He called for a ceasefire and condemned R(redacted)’s “illegal” invasion, but also denounced “provocateurs” in the West who he claimed were responsible.

    U(redacted)n ambassador Sergiy Kyslytsya called Waters’ speech “another brick in the wall” of R(redacted)n disinformation…

    …the 79-year-old singer, who appeared with his dog…

    “The invasion of U(redacted)e by the R(redacted)n Federation was illegal. I condemn it in the strongest possible terms,” he said via video link.

    “Also, the R(redacted)n invasion of U(redacted)e was not unprovoked, so I also condemn the provocateurs in the strongest possible terms.”…

    He continued: “So what do the voiceless millions have to say? They say thank you for hearing us today. We are many who do not share in the profits of the war industry.

    “We do not willingly raise our sons and daughters to provide fodder for your cannons.

    “In our opinion, the only sensible course of action today is to call for an immediate ceasefire in U(redacted)e. Not one more U(redacted)n or R(redacted)n life is to be spent, not one, they are all precious in our eyes.”…”:

    Her tax returns are straightforward, even boring, with just one source of income – her salary – £140,000 in 2021-22, and she chooses to take less than her full entitlement.

    The only wrinkle is that for each year her pension “saving” exceeded the maximum “annual allowance”, triggering a total pension tax bill since 2014 of around £120,000.

    The current allowance is £40,000 a year…

    Surprise, surprise, the real annual cost is not 20.2pc of salary, but a whopping 75pc. Total pay and pension for an MSP is really £117,000 – £67,000 salary and £50,000 pension – much, much higher than the official figures…”:

    Since a ‘transwoman’ = that which is NOT a woman, and indeed is the opposite of a woman, impersonating, claiming or purporting to be – a woman.

    Then by the same logic, a ‘trans butcher’ = a person engaged in the slaughter, processing and trade of that which is NOT, and indeed is the opposite of, meat. Ie a vegan ‘butcher’. One who slaughters Quorn and makes them into burgers. One who catches and dresses veggy haggis. A person engaged in selecting live ‘meat substitutes’, jointing them and (perhaps fraudulently?) Selling them to the public.

    Assange has been detained at HMP Belmarsh in southeast London since he was expelled from the Ecuadorian Embassy in 2019, after being holed up there for more than seven years.

    He is currently fighting extradition to the United States after submitting an appeal to the European Court of Human Rights in December.

    Assange’s wife, Stella, addressed crowds at a rally in Westminster, holding up a scarf made by one of her husband’s most loyal supporters, the late Dame Vivienne Westwood.

    Mrs Assange said the carnival made “a big impact on central London” and hailed the “incredible” response.

    “We need to keep building until the movement is so big that those in power and the courts realise that there is nowhere else to go than to free Julian,” she said…”:

    “The Guardians of Scotland were regents who governed the Kingdom of Scotland from 1286 until 1292 and from 1296 until 1306. During the many years of minority in Scotland’s subsequent history, there were many guardians of Scotland and the post was a significant constitutional feature in the course of development for politics in the country…

    Guardians of Scotland during the First Interregnum 1286–1292:
    The First Interregnum began upon the death of Alexander III of Scotland in 1286. Alexander’s only surviving descendant was Margaret, Maid of Norway, who was a young child and living in Norway where her father Eric II was king. She was finally sent to Great Britain in 1290, but she died before arriving in Scotland. The next king of Scots was not determined until completion of an arbitration in 1292.

    The following persons served as guardians during the First Interregnum:

    • William Fraser, Bishop of St Andrews

    • Robert Wishart, Bishop of Glasgow…”:
