    While I welcome the imminent fall of the SNP, the dial isn’t moving for either Alba or the ISP and so I think we all need to contemplate the implications of a Unionist party returning to power (almost certainly the Red Tories, as the Blue kind will never, ever win the popular vote in Scotland again, having not done so since the 1950’s). Will it be a catalyst to finally wake the YES movement up from it’s slumber and force it into the kind of action we saw in 2014? Or will it go out with a whimper? Or will some look at events in Northern Ireland (the Unionist majority crumbled in 2017 and is never coming back, now a border poll is surely a question of when, not if) for a longer term approach?

    There is space in the political playground for a conservative party that is not Unionist…

    I’m optimistic an Indy Scotland would embrace the whole political spectrum, but troubled that a Scottish “Right of Centre” body of opinion would identify with UK Conservatives. It isn’t just their Unionism that makes them abhorrent to so many.

    Similarly however, I feel there is a need to make some provision for the landed gentry and absentee landlords who currently only recognise Scotland as a resource to be exploited or blasted with a shotgun.

    These people won’t evaporate post Independence, and if we don’t want echoes of White Farmers in South Africa, I would welcome efforts to instigate discussions and find some method to help people think the unthinkable, and contemplate a life where they put Scotland’s interests first, like a true and normal citizen of Scotland properly would.

    Life as a Unionist suddenly without a Union is going to require a degree of re-programming and adjustment. Perhaps, let me stress perhaps there’s a way to make this adjustment a positive and rewarding venture for those in fear of losing all they believe in.

    Let them also be heard making the case why an Indy Scotland should embrace elements of their culture which might actually benefit Scotland.

    Then again, in the spirit of thinking the unthinkable, History, even from the 12th Century, should warn us that a tr(eacherous) aristocracy has done profound damage to Scotland in the past.

    Yet it has also delivered for Scotland too. King Robert Bruce, signatory of the 1291 Ragman Roll pledging allegiance to Longshanks by some accounts was in attendance at Falkirk when Wallace was defeated… yet who else could have forged Scotland into a nation when it was pushed so close to oblivion? With no Robert the Bruce, there could be no Edinburgh/ Northampton Treaty of 1328.

    Would the dowager Queen of England have pledged Scotland ” “shall belong to our dearest ally and friend, the magnificent prince, Lord Robert, by God’s grace illustrious King of Scotland, and to his heirs and successors, separate in all things from the kingdom of England, whole, free, and undisturbed in perpetuity, without any kind of subjection, service, claim or demand”., had Scotland been led by no magnificent prince, but a mere commoner or peoples’ assembly instead?

    There’s natural right of centre constituency that is probably a lot better off having nothing to do with UK Conservatives – the self-employed, small business owners, farmers and fishermen. All of these are inclined to small(er) government or at a very minimum, one that delivers value for the money extracted from them. UK Conservatism with it’s top echelons focused entirely on the SE of England have little to offer conservatives in Scotland. It’s about time they grew a pair, found a voice and started holding Holyrood accountable, including the Unionists who have to serve their masters’ interests down south first, and Scotland last.

    It is time to talk about something important.

    “It was on the day that witnesses from Nicola Sturgeon’s private office were due to give evidence as to her own knowledge and involvement, that the Scottish Government suddenly conceded the case rather than have this evidence heard…”
    (Craig Murray’s “Sworn Evidence on the Sturgeon Affair”, currently available on his website)

    I’m slowly processing the statement as a whole, it’s been a busy week, but it struck me that the above contained new information and raised a few interesting questions. Correct me if I’m wrong;

    1) we all knew the Government conceded the case at a time that was convenient for them, this had been suggested elsewhere previously, but doesn’t this give us a much more interesting and specific understanding of why they did so?

    2) is this the first time we have heard of the existence of witnesses that could and were willing to implicate Sturgeon on the basis of her “knowledge and involvement” in the alleged conspiracy “designed to generate false accusations” against Salmond?

    3) why haven’t we heard more about or from those witnesses? Couldn’t they have gone to a newspaper and made a lot of money with their bombshell information, what would stop them?

    4) can we expect those witnesses to give evidence in any future court cases? And if or when they do, isn’t it going to be ‘game over’ for Sturgeon, the SNP, those directly involved, and those who must have known about this and said nothing or helped cover it up?

    Smaller government or at least reeling in some of the excessive legislation that keeps growing arms & legs, and of course costs, would probably help a lot of businesses out.

    IIRC SEPA was looking at charging ski centres for an extraction license for using water from the burns running down the mountains to use in their snow making machines.
    FFS the manufactured snow melts and the water returns to the burn. Or are SEPA thinking the minuscule amounts of plastic that wears off skis and snowboards somehow contaminates the melt-water.
    Glenshee were looking at installing some more environmentally friendly ways of powering the centre, because all its power was / maybe still is generated by burning diesel in generators.
    Any greens going skiing better pay extra for their carbon emissions or plant a few thousand trees to try to offset the pollution their hobby causes.

    You stated: “I’m slowly processing the statement as a whole, it’s been a busy week, but it struck me that the above contained new information and raised a few interesting questions.

    You’re referring to this article I linked to on the previous thread. But it isn’t *new information as the article and was originally published just over 3 years ago on January 27th 2021.
    I only linked to it because it contained reference to Ian Blackford who was being mentioned in the btl discussion.

    *Unless it has recently been updated.

    https://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2021/01/my-sworn-evidence-on-the-sturgeon-affair/

    So there has been several years for aspects of the content of that article to be investigated and developed further, but it should come as no surprise that the MSM have little incentive to dig deeper.

    Regardless, that particular piece of information seems new to me. I probably read that statement when it was published a couple of years ago and was looking at things differently back then. Funny how time can change your mindset and perception of things.

    It’s heartening to know that there were potentially witnesses who would have given evidence in this case. I’m surprised nobody has made more of that.

    Was the article possibly published and removed for legal reasons? 90% of it is familiar and well known, but some of the detail seems new… maybe old age setting in.

    From https://www.factcheck.org/2022/12/scicheck-died-suddenly-pushes-bogus-depopulation-theory/

    “If you look at postmortem clots just with the naked eye, they’re gelatinous and they’re rubbery. And if you listen to the embalmers on this documentary, that’s exactly how they’re describing these new, strange clots,” he said. “Postmortem clots typically take the shape of the blood vessel they’re in, and that’s exactly how these embalmers describe these newfangled clots that they’re finding. They’re pulling out these perfect casts of blood vessels.”

    Other experts have come to the same conclusion when asked before by fact-checkers about such claims from funeral service providers, including Hirschman and O’Looney.

    “The images look to me more like postmortem clots, mainly due to the color, the shape, and particularly because of the amount,” Nikolaus Klupp, an associate professor of forensic medicine at the Medical University of Vienna, told Health Feedback in September.

    “The blood clots are from refrigeration. It happens to many bodies,” embalmer Monica Torres, of NXT Generation Mortuary Support, told AFP the same month. “It’s just that there were so many bodies to process, many of them sat in refrigeration for long durations so they got blood clots. It’s not a big deal and these people are trying to make it a thing.”

    ….. It’s about time they grew a pair, found a voice and started holding Holyrood accountable, including the Unionists who have to serve their masters’ interests down south first, and Scotland last.

    I agree, but English / Unionist style Conservatism is so toxic, it routinely “poisons the well” for the right of centre in Scotland.

    I’m already falling into the trap myself by describing this as a Left vs Right phenomenon, and thereby adopting the blinkers Westminster Government likes us all to wear.

    Scotland’s business orientated community needs to coalesce around something far more wholesome than a paler shade of blue UK Conservative ideology. To my knowledge, no such thing exists… something like a Common Weal trying to develop its own doctrines, but without a Union Jack in sight.

    I wonder whether we are coming to the end of the modern insanity of dumbing down and squandering our traditional Trades and Crafts, and betraying our apprentices with anaemic and banal training regimes which leave them under skilled and greatly inferior to tradespeople of former generations.

    It’s a tragedy to see what our nation was once capable of doing and compare it to now. We need “old school” competence and expertise to depose and replace “new school” amateurism and banal lack of competence.

    Sadly, I fear we will need to witness the demise of NeoLiberalism greed and modern economics first, but I fear we have still got a long way to fall before that happens. Maybe it never will, and we will never again know what a Master Craftsperson is, nor witness the same pursuit of excellence, and love of excellence, the hunger for it, that once existed throughout Scotland.

    Concoct a philosophy to resurrect our Traditional Trades and Artisans, and wean our nation off IKEA style garbage and the banal homogeneity of criminally overpriced modern housing, and you’d get my vote.

    So right, Breeks, and in many areas. It can’t just be down to chance or down to lack of money that so much creative expertise has become a thing of the past. Who benefits?

    Is it all tied in with incompetence in politics where decisions are made and funding handed out by people with poor understanding of their remit? Is it tied in with lobbying and self-interest where funding doesn’t reach its target but is mysteriously diverted and swallowed up?

    Is it down to neglect or deliberate destruction of the nation’s cultural heritage?

    Whatever the reasons, there really isn’t time to lose because once the the chain of skill and practical knowledge is broken, the expertise is lost.

    Your conclusion hits it on the head. It’s a job for whoever takes the reins politically, before or after independence. But it’s also a job at grassroots, that we don’t stand idly by. The knowledge is there (Common Weal) but it needs political will, determination and integrity and we need to demand these of our politicians.

    If it’s a matter of controlling market forces and rooting out this parasitical self-interest that seems to be everywhere, then the right people have to be running the show.

    So much that’s good has come out of the pursuit of excellence, and love of excellence, the hunger for it, that once existed throughout Scotland. To breathe new life into it requires us to see what’s going on, recognise the establishment’s tricks and do something about it.

    You have no seen the last of my blue bonnet and me. Another mauling in the Sundays for the SNP. Reminds me of people in coercive and controlling relationships. Some people bale early on whilst others lose everything because they continue in the relationship to the bitter end. If you still think the SNP have your interests at heart you are in the latter category.

    It’s a tragedy to see what our nation was once capable of doing and compare it to now. We need “old school” competence and expertise to depose and replace “new school” amateurism and banal lack of competence.

    You’ll get no quibble from me on that. As a practical person it breaks my heart to see the place I live fall into such disrepair due to lack of gumption on how to properly maintain our existing infrastructure.
    Roads falling apart due to lack of maintenance of drainage, pavements becoming overgrown making passage along them difficult, communities losing bus service because some feckless twats in an office can’t even organise the simple task of cutting back a few tree branches to keep the route passable for traffic like it had been for decades before.
    If you go into the council to report issues you continually get palmed off with the most ridiculous and inane excuses as to why they can’t do it.
    I actually feel the glaring flaws at council level are a significant reason why folk become so disillusioned to the point they become apathetic to all levels of governance.
    When they see such a lack of competence in the basic management of their local environs which impact their lives day to day, it is no wonder they struggle to believe those higher up the ladder of power would be any better.
    It’s odd too that local authority elections have such lower turnouts at elections compared to national votes when arguably they have more effect on folks’ lives. But maybe that is just due to the way modern Party politics toxifies nearly everything it seems to touch.
    Another reason why sensible local independent candidates representing their constituents has got to be worth a shot…

    There is so much to do and be getting on with that could make things better for our communities, but so many folk I meet and interact with seem broken and have lost any motivation to do anything outwith focusing on their own bubbles of mundane existence.
    It’s been getting worse for years too. The community council for the area is no more due to lack of engagement.

    Was helping a pal refit the back axle to his lorry yesterday morning, after lunch took a stroll up to the village bottle bank to stretch out my back after the heavy work lifting, on way back ended up filling the bag I carried the bottles in with litter from roadside. If folk did just one thing a day or even a week to improve their communities it would make a real difference.
    Of course that is being made all the more difficult though because the nanny state requires to legislate, award contracts, have certification in training, and liability insurance, to do just about anything.

    That’s a great post from Bob at 10:01.

    And it’s a rare day indeed when I can write that.

    I am reminded of the old saw about how people go mad in herds, but return individually to sanity.

    I don’t agree with his conclusions though. Sure, the untested vaccines are knocking a few people off their perches (isn’t there a class action lawsuit about that going on in Germany?), but I believe the excess mortality figures are just the delayed spike in untreated fatal diseases working its way through the population.

    During the Covid Years, our wonderful NHS gave up on the usual killers such as cancer, heart disease, etc. And our wonderful governments (Nicla to the fore, Yay), ensured much of the population was forced into unhealthy patterns of physical, mental and social behaviour.

    Colour me surprised – that has detrimentally affected our collective health.

    We still have a little way to go to get the collective insanity fully reversed at the individual level though. When everybody finally acknowledges that the Covid Spreaders cooked it up in a lab, carelessly leaked it, selfishly hushed it up, then criminally encouraged its spread throughout the world – then we will finally be getting somewhere.

    Cos then we will finally be able to allocate the blame where it belongs, realise just what the world was dealing with and still is dealing with, and collectively wake the feck up.

    In this country, we collectively twisted our knickers over BoJo knocking back a glass of wine.

    Over in Covid Spreading Central, they unleashed their home made virus on the world, killed millions, impoverished hundreds of millions and stung the entire world for trillions of dollars worth of damages.

    And nae cunt will even say “boo” to them.

    …Well MediaBias/FactCheck rates it highly on telling the truth.

    The tragedy is, irrespective of whether the Establishment “played it straight” with COVID, public confidence in vaccinations, that is, vaccination protocols which nearly eradicated, or actually eradicated Smallpox, Diphtheria, Measels, Mumps, Rubella etc, have now become mistrusted and large parts of the population are now deeply cynical about vaccinations in general, and the medical industry which profits so much from making them.

    It isn’t just medicine. I’m from a generation whose parents and grandparents were directly affected by World Wars, Home defence, and the defeat of “Evil”. These people, myself included, grew up with tremendous empathy for those most afflicted, whether those grieving lost relatives, sweethearts who remained spinsters forever, or those disfigured or maimed by injury or amputation.

    My respect for Remembrance Day and wearing a poppy was a given. Yet after two, perhaps three decades of “British” warmongering and political chicanery, and our brave veterans misused as bully boys to force Western supremacy upon others, the British Establishment has utterly destroyed public faith in Remembrance Day, and seen it replaced with cynicism and in many places, outright contempt.

    Worse in Scotland, because “their” poppy became tacit approval for Bulldog Britain’s nefarious obliteration of far away governments on trumped up evidence. “Lest we forget” the things we’re too ashamed to admit eh? Keep your poppy.

    The same has happened to our News Media. Two or three decades caught shilling for the warmongering class or distorting the truth until it fitted the biased narrative, and suddenly public confidence in news is in a tailspin too.

    Is nothing sacred to this rancid Establishment with a voracious appetite to consume all that is good and reputable in the world, and spit it out tainted, corrupted, discredited and reviled?

    Stop it with all these amateurish quangos, ombudsmen and toothless inquiries, and bring back the days of professionalism, integrity, and career ending stigma for the rogues and parasites who once upon a time would have found themselves tarred and feathered, or hung from the battlements in gibbets for their misdeeds and t(reachery).

    They’ve destroyed our Trades, our heavy Industries, our Education, our Health Service, our Local Authorities, our Public Utilities, our Transport, our Fishing, our markets in Europe… yet the BBC is there to convince us we did this to ourselves.

    What’s that? The good “Sir” won’t resign eh? Then fetch the Messenger at Arms and a blacksmith with some shackles… Nobody is untouchable or above the law.

    I’ve only recently started watching a few of his vids after seemingly curing myself from 3 years of debilitating ailments and fatigue which included aching muscles and joints, disturbed sleep, brain fog, and weird heart activity like resting rate of 120 when it was normally 60.
    As a fit athletic individual (albeit ageing), I know my body pretty well and knew something was out of kilter with my system which assessment and treatment through conventional health service couldn’t diagnose.

    Dan has given examples of incompetent local politicians while John Main declares himself a supporter of the belief system (“I believe the excess mortality figures are just the delayed spike in untreated fatal diseases…”).

    Going back ten years, it’s not hard to recollect which politicians were competent while JohnIm’s link to the 2023 Nakahara study is helpful in sorting out the wheat from the chaff and reaching informed conclusions.

    To see whether there has been an increase in heart muscle damage following covid vaccination, the Nakahara team compared hundreds of pre-2020 scan results with those done after vaccination. The results showed a significant increase.

    The beauty of the study was that the scans were of patients who weren’t being investigated for heart disease but for a variety of other conditions. This meant that heart damage was detected in people who showed no heart symptoms. That in itself raises questions. All grist to the mill in the world of science. Inconvenient if belief systems are your thing though.

    Anybody else innarested and intrigued by NI FM Michelle O’Neill’s comments this week about the referendum on re-union with the Republic edging closer?

    It’s not that I disbelieve her, and it’s not that I doubt there is a good chance that a majority in NI would say “bring it on”.

    Naw, what flabbers my gast is the glib assumption that the people of the Republic should not be allowed an equal say.

    Maybes they would be overwhelmingly in favour too. But by not asking them, you have to wonder if the opposite may actually be the case.

    Respect to Michelle O’Neill though, for being neither a pretendy nor a fraudulent FM. An FM elected to her leadership position by the democratic will of the majority of the people. A lesson there for Auld Scotia, if we can ever summon the collective will to get off our knees.

    And another innarestin and intriguing thought arises. Given the lack of any organised push back against Yousaf’s “requirement for one million New Scots” idea we all seem resigned to accepting, which would we prefer:

    Assange’s crimes? telling the truth, his Wikileaks site has NEVER posted lies when it posted info, can we say that about the current global MSM? I say no.

    Oh and there’s this, hang onto your hats.

    https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2023/50?view=interweave

    “Welcome to the UK where it’s now official government policy that you CAN’T publish “misinformation”, but The Guardian, the BBC, Disney and Netflix CAN…

    Yes, it’s true – the recently signed “Online Safety Act” brands the publication of “false information” a criminal offense punishable by up to a year in prison…

    …unless you’re an MSM outlet, when it’s totally fine

    Think even the corrupt & bloated criminal class that rules over us would never dare be that blatant?

    Take a look at section 179 making it illegal to publish false information with intent to cause harm:

    Section 179 – False communications offence

    30. A person commits the false communications offence if they send a message conveying information that they know to be false, and at the time of sending it they intend the message to cause non-trivial psychological or physical harm to a likely audience (i.e. someone who could reasonably be foreseen to encounter the message or its content) and they have no reasonable excuse for sending the message.

    31. This offence is intended to replace the offence in section 1(a)(iii) of the Malicious Communications Act 1988 and (for England, Wales and Northern Ireland) the offence in section 127(2)(a) and (b) of the Communications Act 2003, which have been repealed by section 189 of the Act.

    32. If several or many people are the “likely audience” then it is not necessary that the person intended to cause non-trivial psychological or physical harm to any of them in particular (or to all of them).

    33. Proceedings for the false communications offence may be brought within 6 months of sufficient evidence in the opinion of the prosecutor, and after no more than 3 years after an offence has been committed.

    34. This offence extends to England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and is devolved. It is a summary only offence, which carries a maximum penalty of 51 weeks imprisonment or a fine (or both).

    …and then look at section 180, which exempts all MSM outlets from this new law:

    Section 180 – Exemptions from offences under section 179

    35. This section sets out exemptions for the false communications offence, including an exemption for recognised news publishers and exemptions for holders of broadcast or multiplex licences, and providers of an on-demand programming service. This section also provides that the offence cannot be committed in connection with the showing of a film made for cinema to members of the public.

    Welcome to the modern definition of “freedom of speech”, where the MSM are directly and explicitly permitted to “knowingly publish false information with intent to cause non-trivial harm”, and you can be sent to jail for a year for calling out their lies.

    Oh, and it looks like our friends across the pond might not be far behind. The Big Tech Senate hearings started yesterday, and social media executives are already throwing their support behind the new “Kids Online Safety Act”.

    With the EU’s own Digital Services Act coming into force later this month, and all the focus on “misinformation and disinformation” at Davos two weeks ago, we can see the real crackdown on internet free speech is about to kick into gear.”

    How does the new legislation attach itself to Scots with the Westminster parliament stating openly to the world masses that the Scots were not asked or invited to join the treaty of union because they would probably vote NO.
    So they just invited the Scottish parliament, which they then immediately placed under dissolution. Making the situation worse for themselves by making the political treaty of joining of the two parliaments EX- treaty of parliamentary union.

    I doubt wether the Westminster parliament could sue the old 1707 dissolved Scottish parliament for not complying with the new legislation.

    The old 1707 Scottish parliament was never re-instated,
    The devolved parliament is under Westminster statues and legislation making it a branch of the Parliament of Westminster itself by law.
    Ie, not the parliament of Scotland or the Scots that were not invited to join in the treaty.

    As we discussed yesterday the Crown is not a Shared crown nor is it under the same oaths required to become monarch of two separate kingdoms. It also required two separate ceremonies on two separate dates.
    ( which by the way, was not witnessed by the nation of Scots in Scotland like it was for the monarchs coronation in England)

    So where does Westminsters Crown legislation apply to Scots not in the treaty of union?

    No day of rest for me as just spent a couple of hours having to sort out more issues caused by substandard work by folk that should really know a whole lot better.

    Neighbour’s car got new discs and pads fitted less than 6 months ago. Garage couldn’t be arsed removing the corrosion build under the stainless steel anti-squeal / wear shims on the caliper carrier that support the brake pads, so new pads seized up quickly in the carrier causing brakes to bind and pads to wear down excessively.
    So stripped off both rear calipers with electric motors in them to actuate the handbrake… (guessing humans have become so fucking weak they can’t even muster the strength to pull up a cable operated handbrake lever), then removed all the corrosion build up and reassembled everything properly.
    Forgot to mention the struggle to get the wheels off because the arseholes had clearly used a buzz gun to tighten studs when the wheels were off previously, had to get out my 3/4 inch drive ratchet as was going to break my 1/2 inch kit. Studs were also corroded and dry not having been properly cleaned up last time they were off, so I did that too.
    All this was brought about because the car had had new rear wishbones fitted, but two garages and an alignment centre could not get the rear suspension geometry adjusted to factory specs and it was eating the inside edge off the rear tyres.
    So I said I would have a look and immediately noted the rear camber on both sides was near 3 deg neg when it should be 1 deg neg, and that being so far out in the camber setting meant there was no way the rear toe setting would ever be able to adjust into an acceptable range.
    None of the three business had even tried to adjust the top camber adjustment as there was no witness marks of a spanner or socket being on any of those bolts and nuts.

    If that took you 2 hours, then it might have taken the garage the same. Labour is running near £100 per hour in some places, and then there’s VAT at 20%.

    It must be the case that some garages, if they quote to do a “proper job”, never get the work. So cutting corners is the only way to stay in business.

    Callipers with motors in is a new one for me. I always assumed an electric handbrake used a motor to wind on a conventional handbrake mechanism. So what you describe is about as fecking daft as the ginormous light clusters with integrated LEDs that have to be thrown away when an LED fails. Replacement cost several hundred pounds for what used to require just the replacement of a blown bulb.

    Wether the UK parliament meant to state the Scots were not in the Treaty of union as a boast of superiority or not seriously backfires on them.

    When it came to asking and discussions on wether the Sovereign Scots should get a vote to join the treaty of union or not it debated upon by commissioners and politicians alike.
    This same debate with regards the people of England, Wales and Ireland apparently was not required.
    And the Westminster parliament statement on the UK parliament site in 2022 2023, and 2024 , On which section of Scotlands society should have had a legal vote. the consideration and debate that took place identifies and defines the Scots as separate in Sovereignty from the 1707 Scottish parliament and Monarch.

    The resulting option taken by those commissioners and politicians and ratified was just to leave the Scots out of the treaty of union.

    The fact is that Mr Murray posted on his blog that he supports Hamas in the current war.

    Another fact is that Hamas is a proscribed terrorist organisation in the UK. I don’t believe Mr Murray was being brave or principled when he posted what he did – I think he has taken leave of his senses.

    The logical conclusion, based on the facts, is that suspicions about Mr Murray would not be “trumped up”. They would be entirely lawful and logical to those tasked with protecting the safety of the British public, based on what Mr Murray has chosen to post online, and what we know about the group he has chosen to support.

    His actions have consequences that are entirely in accordance with the law as it currently stands.

    James, there’s no point in looking towards Europe to push our case to dissolve this union even though we are already de facto independent due to returning a majority of indy minded MPs to Westminster on a regular basis now.

    The EU mask has slipped Gaza has shown that, and there’s no point in looking across the pond to the USA for help either, Washington wants us to remain under Westminster’s control to keep us in Nato and to secure the North sea Arc of defence that protects the USA, don’t go thinking that if Trump win the next US POTUS elections that he’ll step in and help us because of his Scottish roots that’s non-starter.

    As Craig Murray has stated in his articles on Scotland ditching the union realpolitik is at play here.

    “But UK domestic law is entirely irrelevant. The Kosovo Opinion of the International Court of Justice makes crystal clear that the domestic law of the state being seceded from, is not the determining factor as to whether a secession is illegal.

    Whereas the reliance by the UK Supreme Court on the criteria of the Federal Court of Canada in the Quebec judgment, over fifty years old and superseded by the cold hard fact of over 23 non-colonial secessions since, is simply laughable.

    But while the right of self-determination of peoples in international law is crucial in the case of Scotland, and while Scotland undoubtedly qualifies as a “people” because it is a long established historic nation with its own legal system, culture and institutions, there is one overwhelmingly important criterion for recognition grounded in pure realpolitik.

    It was long accepted as the only criterion for recognition that a state had factual, practical control of its own territory. That position has become softened by more principled considerations since the second world war, but the actual control of the territory claimed remains the most important factor in gaining international recognition.

    Why did Catalonia fail where Slovenia, Kosovo and the Baltic states succeeded?

    Because realpolitik rules in practice, and the Slovenians, Balts and Kosovans had obtained actual control on the ground of the land they claimed. The Catalans had not.”

    Salvo etc can show that we are indeed sovereign in Scotland, but realpolitik also shows that we’ll need to take our independence.

    Lord Forsyth believes the world has gone mad.

    Saw the name Lord Forsyth and though of this from way back in 2012.

    Tuesday 18 December 2012
    Michael Forsyth! This is what he said during the IndyRef Debate vis a vis EU membershp.

    Michael Forsyth to Michael Moore
    Lord Forsyth of Drumlean: You said that you wanted the debate to be as informed as possible. One of the things that Mr Swinney said to us last week was that they had a difficulty in establishing what the position would be vis-a-vis having to apply for membership of Europe or whether they would be allowed to remain in Europe because the Commission would only talk to Governments, and that the British Government were not prepared to engage on this issue. I find it a bit puzzling how you can reconcile saying, “We are not prepared to talk to the Commission as a Government about what the consequences would be”, with saying at the same time, “We want to have a fully informed debate”. Does Mr Swinney not have a point there?

    Also video:
    https://www.parliamentlive.tv/Event/Index/a2d96d03-1111-4637-ac64-027862386eb7

    So much to say about all that. Right at the beginning Michael Moore says

    If I were to claim that this is perhaps the biggest decision facing Scotland in 300 years you might be sympathetic to that idea.

    What about the decision to actually join the Union? That was pretty major.

    Holding onto that reality, the Eva Comrie/Alba/Angus Brendan MacNeil proposal to collapse the colonial administration at Holyrood, hold a Scottish plebiscite election, secure a majority of seats and votes and then declare independence, still represents arguably the the most rapid route to independence.

    In realpolitik, CM is overseas and has posted in support of a proscribed terrorist organisation. He now faces the reality of having to get through UK immigration, where he will rightly have to explain himself.

    I say “rightly” because even though I believe him to be a man of peace, the law should apply to all. I want that law applied universally because I don’t want another Manchester Arena scenario, and the people CM supports have a solid track record of slaughtering daft, dancing kids.

    Maybes you both want to claim you live your lives as free Scots, obeying only those rules, laws and regulations that accord with your own consciences, sympathies, and exquisitely fine tuned senses of fairness and justness.

    Seems to me there is very little ground between collapsing a colonial Holyrood and formally impeaching it.

    Probably best if people stopped wasting their time with that particular question.

    Mr Ben was on the telly and he could be anything he wanted and had quite the adventures in each episode.

The episode could be called The Aluminum Millionaire as the cash rolled in for weighing in empty drink tins at the local scrap dealers.
    TBH Red Bull and Monster really need to up their game and increase the the amount of sugar in those drinks, because it appears that 13 teaspoonfuls per tin isn’t sufficient to give the brain melted twats that drink that pish enough energy to put the fucking tin in a bin…

    I’ll give litter picking at Pride marches a miss thanks, wouldn’t want to bend over to pick up a piece of litter and get WAY more than I bargained for from some deviant furry.

    As far as I’m aware 2024 is record year for elections 50 countries are holding them, I think Taiwan on the 13th of January was first up.

    The problem for us is that we returned a majority of independence party candidates to Holyrood and Westminster but those MPs/MSPs refuse to fulfill the duty we gave them and that’s to remove Scotland from this union.

    I’d wager there’s far more than 53% (last Poll) of people in Scotland that supports independence, but with the current indy party politicians in government at Holyrood actively suppressing the masses desire to dissolve this union, what options does that leave us.

    How can we achieve independence when the current party in government talks a good game on it, but isn’t interested in delivering it. At the very least the SNP will be returned to government (a coalition) in 2026, and that will be another five years added on to 2026 taking us up to the 2030’s. Meanwhile more and more folk from South of the border will flood into Scotland to live and take advantage of our services which are getting pretty thin on the ground down South.

    Whatever action is taken it will need to be taken in the next few years, to add to our difficulties we are propagandised 24/7 by the foreign media, hell in the South of Scotland Scots don’t even get “so called Scottish tv” they are served by Northern England transmitters.

    I really struggle to see where a Scottish indy minded politician who’s radical enough and determined enough to do whatever it takes no matter how ugly it gets to break this rancid union.

    Instead of say 50 thousand Scots marching down Glasgow or Edinburgh’s main street shouting for independence those 50 thousand should be demonstrating outside Holyrood and Bute House, and dedicated groups of indy supporters should be protesting outside venues that our FM or MSPs attend, sporadic marches two or three times a year can be easily ignored by Yousaf and his MSPs, but a concerted campaign over a long period cannot so easily be ignored.

    Every time Yousaf or a SNP MSP turn around there should be an indy banner of some sorts in his/their faces.

    Israel has vowed to exterminate Hamas.

    If either side unilaterally stops fighting, then it gets exterminated by the other.

    In plain logic, both sides have to agree to stop and abandon their vows. As part of that, the hostages and prisoners can be exchanged, and the millions of innocent Palestinians stuck in the middle can be helped.

    What I continually see is that nearly everybody calling for a cease fire is being disingenuous – listen closely and they are calling for a one-sided cease fire. Thus, inevitably, the side that ceases fire will get exterminated by the side that keeps on shooting.

    The simple fact that this is all about as far from rocket science as it is possible to get, yet it continues to be beyond the comprehension of plenty on here, confirms my long held opinion – these are not serious people.

    Ultimately, it continues to be my view that neither Scotland nor Indy is helped by the support of people so out of touch with reality and realpolitik.

    Dumbza should never have been in government. When he failed at his first role he should’ve been relegated to the back benches. Instead Sturgeon shuffled him around playing musical chairs to see how many other titles in cabinet he could fail at.

    Scotland had the golden opportunity to rub the whole lot out & start again because unfortunately westminster is exactly the same. Bursting at the seems with liars, cheats & thieves who are only interested in the side hustle & expenses.

    Re our conversations of wether the Scots are in the treaty of union,monarchy, the Scottish crown. and uk legislation anomalies.

    Under the treaty of union articles The territorial extent of the parliament of Englands Union with Scotland Act 1706 is The Kingdom of England.

    The Succession to the Crown is to the crown and throne of England in article 11.

    Both of these can be found and read in the “Union with Scotland,”

    The factual history that is recorded in and by those two specific articles of the union with Scotland is that the Crown and throne of Scotland is not included or mentioned in the Offer.nor its kingdom of Scotland.

    What is mentioned and detailed is that Scotland agreed to the line of succession to the throne of England, it also agreed that the monarch of England can wear any Crown called the imperial crown of Great Britain if the monarch of England wishes to name its Crown as such,

    What it “does not do” specifically is to allow the monarch of England to wear the Crown of Scotland,

    And this has been the case ever since those articles were agreed between Scotland and England,
    The Monarchs of England can touch them, they look at them, they are tantalisingly offered up on a cushion in a teasing manner. but the Crown of Scotland has never been placed on the monarch of England. during any Coronation ritual and ceremony.

    I alway wondered and been curios as to why the supposed monarch of Great-Britain Britain had never worn the Crown of Scots, even though they held a false Scottish coronation ceremony in Scotland.
    well now you know.

    Scots agreed to the succession line to the Crown and throne for England in England, and agreed they could call their crown any darn thing they liked even “Imperial” if it made them feel important.

    But it does not include the English Monarch as the succession line of descendants to the crown or throne of Scotland in those “articles of the Union with Scotland”

    In enevitaby the implications that the two kingdoms are not the one United kingdom of Great- Britain, and that the Crown monarch of England may be outside his territorial kingdom Bounderies and upsurping his legal position importing Crown justice systems, legislation and Statues to Scotland under the Crown of England.

    Not to mention the aside boast of Westminster parliament in 2024 admitting “The Scots” are not in the treaty of union, nor were they invited to join as the Scots would probably voted NO anyway.

    Not to give someone ( Scots) a legal vote in 1707 because they will probably not vote the same way yourself. ( the unionist )

    That sounds familiar.
    But that also means the Scots were deliberately left out-with the treaty of union vote after much discussion and deliberations by the politicians were held,

    The political veto on Scots to vote on joining the treaty of union. And there being No political veto discussed in the same manner towards the 1707 Scottish parliament.

    States the obvious, the Scots were recognised by the politicians, commissioners and monarchy as Sovereign from their parliaments decisions and votes,
    This separation between veto of the Scots nation votes, in comparison to their parliament votes does not appear to have arisen under any discussion or debate fotr England, Wales and Ireland at the time,
    It was a foregone conclusion that in England the parliament of England was sovereign. Not the people.

I was not joking to John Main the other day when I said the UK can field one effective division. Some context, that is about 15000. A disportionate amount from Scotland. Casualties in the 404 war exceed 20000 per month at the height of the 404 battles. Hence the admission that the British Army can stay in the field for a maximum of 2 months in a similar conflict of attrition. An Independence campaign can legitimately claim that staying in the UK no longer is a guarantee of security. The recovery timescale is 5 to 10 years for the UK military. How did that happen with a Conservative Government when defence is supposed to be their forte. So foreign excursions very unlikely in the short to medium term.

    Yes, and no.

    Yes, there is the “Right” (our popular sovereignty), and our entitlement to make a claim upon that right, and initiate a modern day Claim of Right. In Constitutional terms, we have the power to do this, and recognised precedent when this has been done, (1689 when a Claim of Right deposed our Monarch), and the furthermore, the Claim of Right is woven through all manner of UK legislation, from Treaty of Union to the Scotland Act and beyond.

    The No? As a people, we have been divorced from our legitimate rights for generation after generation, and now we are unfamiliar and hesitant with the protocols and prudence which would empower us to act. Scotland’s constitutional muscle has been allowed to atrophy far too long, and Scotland currently suffers from the, “use it or lose it”, phenomenon.

    Thankfully, what we suffer from is all in our head, because the legitimacy of our Constitution is enshrined in legislation. But Jeezuz H, our rotten and corrupt political types aren’t half making a complete fool of themselves and doing untold damage to Scotland.

    Agreed though, the plebiscitary election idea is the one to back. I’m excited to vote in the first one, once the candidates have issued their manifestos and the pledges are made.

    Have you got links to these anti-colonial-war polls you mention? So much is in the wording of the question.

    Imagine somebody being asked “Are you in favour of a 5% price rise for everything, on top of all the other price rises we have experienced recently?”

    Not many 100% Yes voters there.

    Imagine somebody being asked “Should the UK take all steps necessary to maintain shipping routes open through the Red Sea?” How many people realise that if these routes close, our prices go up by 5%, or maybes more?

    I think you are making the question of independence much to complicated.

    It’s simple ‘Should Scotland be an Independent country?’ Yes or No.

    Or you could put it another way ‘Should Scotland continue to be a colony or not.

    Should the voters in Scotland make the decision about Scotland.

    You seem to complicate your life with questions about the price of a 2nd class stamp in an iScotland.

    @ Dan 12th Feb 24. 8.23am I am fully on board and in agreement with your proposal for decent local independent non-party affiliated candidates to genuinely represent the expressed will of their constituents…

    I’m in total agreement, but would we want that body codified by the Scotland Act as another subordinate “Parliament”, or codified by Scotland’s sovereign Constitution as a modernised Convention of the Estates?

    What seems critical, is whether the people, together with the Faculty of Advocates / Court of Session, would formally recognise the authority of this reinvented Convention of the Estates. If not, could it somehow be compelled to? Can the people of Scotland put a collar on their Legal Fraternity and command it’s obedience?

    Suppose we had both, another Vichy Parliament AND a Convention of the Estates, (because we can be sure both Unionists and Devolutionists alike will see that we do have both), would we have a constitutional solution on our hands? Or all the ingredients for a Scottish civil war?

    There is a third way… a Holyrood Parliament which rejects the Scotland Act codification and instead, swears allegiance to the Community of the Realm, the sovereign people. Sadly, instead of truth, probity, and Constitutional courage, we suffer a weak and impotent Holyrood crippled by its split personality and unconstitutional cowardice, and still bought and sold for English gold.

    Is this a true “third” way? I suspect not, because if a Convention of the Estates can establish it has authority over the Court of Session, then it must surely rank higher than a devolved assembly. With a Convention of the Estates policing Scotland’s constitutional integrity, why would we need Holyrood?

    “Democracy” can be addressed with the election of people to an Independent Scotland’s first parliament.

    Sooner or later, Scottish Independence boils down to sovereignty. Always has, always will. We can end this charade whenever we’re ready. It is our sovereign prerogative.

    Re. Second Chamber

    I’ve revised a previous response to that matter, but happy to read any criticism to it and other ideas on the subject.

    There may be little or less need for a second chamber / citizens’ assembly with all the complexities the formation of one would create.
    Because the process of the formation of policies and the scrutiny of them would be a task borne and completed by the constituents as their elected official only act on the instruction of their constituents.

    This process could have three inherent mechanisms to ensure only sensible and wanted policy initiatives were enacted.

    First element: The formation of any initial policy idea would come from the people of any Ward / Constituency, and their elected official would submit it.

    Second element: If any amendments to a proposed policy are to be raised once a proposed policy is lodged, then said amendments would again be instigated by wider society made up of constituents after they scrutinse the proposal, and the elected officials would submit amendments on their behalf.

    Third Element: When it comes to a final vote on whether or not amendments stand or fall and the policy is enacted, you have to remember that the elected official representing each constituency can only vote as instructed to do so by their respective constituents.
    So the people then get another chance to scrutinise and ultimately decide if amendments and the bill gets to be voted through and enacted onto statute book.

    I have way more belief that a diverse range of folk across society would reach a sensible consensus on matters, when compared to the current corrupt system with shills, dullards, and grifters implementing all manner of seriously flawed and unwanted policies.
    The above proposal would also seriously reduce the ability of lobby groups to influence policy.

    Could you really see all the unwanted garbage like Genderwoowoo, Hate Crime, Jury-less trials, Ferry procurement and Deposit return scheme screw ups pissing away hundreds of millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money if the wider public had any ability to actually control our “government”.

    Interesting because if Starmer thinks he is unworthy of any support then he should deselect Azhar. Saying one thing, doing another, or plain two faced and untrustworthy is the issue.

    And as for the comments that Azhar is reported to have made. Well these were that there could have been the possibility that Israel allowed October the 7th to happen so as to facilitate the support for the IDF ( and it’s partners) to go in a literally destroy Gaza.

    Now we don’t know if that was a consideration on the Israeli part. That type of thing happens. What we do know is that post 7th October genocide and mass suffering was imposed, and still is being imposed on over 2 million people. Israel’s inhumanity knows no bounds.

    But Starmer supports this Israel response. He supports RAF paricipation in assisting targetting, in information gathering. He supports opposing international attempts to stop the slugher, he supports a UK that arms the IDF.

    Seems to me, Starmer is a Zionist with blood on his hands and that he is ipso facto a hater of the Palestinians. Like the Nazis I think Starmer has a clear view of certain populaces that need to be exterminated.

    Scotland probably needs to be independent before Ireland is unified.

    For the imperialist-colonizer no longer welcome in the lands he stole and plundered

    Those of us who don’t have the memories of Alzheimers sufferers will be aware of your previous assertions that we virtuous Scots were never colonisers. It was all some big English bastards wot did it.

    But now you’re acknowledging our role in Irish colonisation and accepting that should Ireland unify, the descendants of our colonisers may well return.

    That’s progress Alf!

    Let’s build on that. Those chanting “from the river to the sea” will have to at least outline their resettlement plans for the resultant “white flight” of millions.

    Or just clarify that they intend for them to be exterminated. Perhaps the justification will be that they have it coming – that’s been posted on here before.

    We’re (mostly) all big boys and girls here. We can (mostly) all cope with any ideas when exposed to the light of day.

    I think it is essential, when so many regular posters complain endlessly at the lies, obfuscation and mendacity of our elected elites, that we behave to a higher standard.

    Seems to me, Willie, that Starmer can see that in a bitter, no-holds-barred fight between two protagonists, either one side has to win, or both sides have to agree to stop.

    Maybes Starmer also knows the definition of “genocide”.

    But even “war” is being redefined to suit people’s personal agenda these days. I’m guessing people believe they’re helping, but I think they’re wrong.

    If nothing is a war, and every military operation is a genocide, the MSM will move on, cos the interest of the mass of bored, click-bait surfers will move on too.

    I’m going to continue to call for both sides to stop killing each other, exchange hostages and prisoners, and allow humanitarian aid into the innocent people of Gaza.

    Cos I don’t think anything’s gonna stop til that happens.

    Interesting article about Ireland and the far-right/migration issue in The Guardian today by Emma Dabiri (she is Irish and black). Alf’s love, Fanon, is quoted, but interestingly, the ethnic nationalism that is tied in with this on this site is rejected (I wonder what Fanon actually says about ethnicity and nationalism?). The distortions by the right of terms like ‘plantation’ and ‘colonisation’ are skewered, also apply to Scotland and some views expressed on this site.

    Lengthy quotation needed to explain that:

    ‘The French post-colonial theorist Frantz Fanon wrote in 1959 of how “the deep cultural fear of the black … figured in the psychic trembling of Western sexuality”. Certainly, a lot of the racism I have experienced growing up and online as an adult has been organised around an imagined “depravity” borne of being the product of a “defiled white woman” and an N-word, a lovely thing to be told about yourself. I have observed this same vitriol directed at other Irish women who have white mothers and black fathers.

    White nationalism in Ireland’s recent anti-immigrant discourse is expressed too in the word “plantation”. Researchers on disinformation at Dublin City University (DCU) who have tracked its use by far-right activists online say it is intended to invoke the 16th- and 17th-century colonial plantations of Ireland, when English settlers were given confiscated Irish land.

    This could be, they suggest, a localised variant of the “great replacement” conspiracy theory, whose supporters claim that white Europeans and Americans are deliberately being “replaced” by non-white and Muslim migrants. Like “plantation”, the “colonisation” hashtag has moved from the far-right online fringes to the mainstream.

    Such language, intended to turn the rage of disadvantaged people on other marginalised groups is a perversion of Ireland’s history. We still rightly memorialise our past oppression as colonised people in poetry and songs about the Famine, about starving people imprisoned for stealing “Trevelyan’s corn”, but atrocities committed against the Irish people were deeply connected to the struggles of colonised people in other parts of the world. Our histories remain intimately interwoven: many of today’s refugees are fleeing the kind of dispossession and injustice Irish people fled in their millions in previous centuries. The legacy of Irish republicanism, an internationalist, secular, socialist ideology, should give us a unique basis for framing contemporary Irishness in an inclusive and progressive way.

    We are not immune to the predatory machinations of false prophets and those who want to reinterpret our nationalist history. But confronting their lies and insisting on the truth of our common ground with other formerly colonised peoples is a potent first step in resistance to the far right.’

    I expect for most of those ‘returning’ across the seas following one decolonization after another that the ‘mother country’ in their mindset isnae Scotland.

    Colonialism does unfortunately lead to ‘a pyramid of tyranny’, in which ‘faith, certainty, dogmas, anathemas, prayers, prohibitions, orders, taboos, tyrannies, wars and glories overwhelmed the order of things’; and in where colonized peoples and ‘colonial functionaries’ search for ‘a bone to gnaw on’, inevitably pushing those lower down the pecking order aside. Colonialism is not just built upon inequalities, ‘it seeks to widen inequalities further’ (Memmi)

    More likely that the donor who gave the party £5 million (GL) and who is an avid supporter of Israel, not to mention two-fifths of Starmer’s cabinet receiving donations from LFI, and a Sir with the initials TC are the real reasons Starmer is comfortable with the genocide of the oppressed Palestinian people.

    Although LFI doesn’t reveal its donors it has been exposed that LFI has a close relationship with the Israeli embassy. It is known for taking MPs on “fact-finding” trips to Israel.

    “The UK’s two aircraft carriers HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales have both failed to be deployed to NATO Exercises, a huge embarrassment for the once mighty Royal Navy. What does this mean for Scotland?

    Scotland pays £4.54billion on the UK’s defence but the MoD only spends £2.01billion within Scotland, a difference of £2.53billion. On a good note this means Scotland is meeting NATO spending commitments of 2% of GDP on defence by sitting at the 2.1% mark. On the other hand, Scotland is being short changed by the UK Government. £2.53billion is being spent outwith Scotland from her defence budget which would be better spent within the country to bolster it’s defence.”

    IMO ALBA are once again showing that they are just a watered down progressive shadow of the Scottish Nonce Party where they are frightened to tell the truth and alienate the woke element of voters, in the meantime the GRR is NOT going away and ALBA are quite happy to discus revisions to it, so I would ask HOW is that going to protect the SAFETY and SECURITY of our REAL WOMENFOLK, Maybe they are also doing it for BETH
