    (Not that you need me to tell you.)

  2. Bob Mack says:

    Ditto Stu. Ditto.

  3. TurnbullDrier says:

    Cracking stuff..

    Guess we’ll be as tooled up as we can be whenever the day comes ๐Ÿ™‚

    Mon the Wingers ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. Balaaargh says:

    Ridge Racer?

  5. chasanderson200 says:

    Hoping to raise a few bob at tomorrows WINGS NIGHT OUT in the Otters Head in Glenrothes to help swell the funds another wee bit

  6. Morgatron says:

    Stu, worth ever penny and more.

  7. TJenny says:

    Just gave a wee bit more, riding the wave of excitement.

  8. Andrew Davies says:

    I f

  9. mike cassidy says:

    Stop taking the piss, Stu.

    An Odeon season ticket doesn’t cost that much.

  10. auld highlander says:

    Yeah! Some of our pension went to a good cause.

  11. Andrew Davies says:

    I feel you may need another fundraiser soon.
    With Indy ref soon to be called, if we all put our cash
    Into wings when ref is called this could really boost our media

    Apart from my driffle well done stu
    You’ve done Scotland proud

  12. ghostly606 says:

    Thanks for the nudge. Donation made. ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. fillofficer says:

    woohoo, they’ll skweam n skweam

  14. Dan Huil says:

    Great news.

  15. galamcennalath says:

    So, how many wee blue books do we distribute next time?

    Frankly, I think we should aim to target every household.

  16. Phydaux says:

    How uplifting it feels to donate again and to witness the surge of support for an outstanding journalist who is not afraid of the truth. I applaud your efforts Stuart…digging around in the MSM must be akin to submerging your hand in an unflushed toilet.

    We need you more than ever as we gear ourselves up for campaigning for Independence.

  17. Absolutely fantastic,

    Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to you Stu ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Nation Libre says:

    WE are the people. Well done everyone

  19. Nation Libre says:

    It truly is testament to your fantastic journalism and scrutiny of the MSM p#Sh that so many people are more than happy to donate, some more than once

    It’s an absolute privilege to be associated with this site

    Long live the Stu!

  20. Scotspatriot says:

    Soon the YooKay Gov will be on trial……..donate to ensure a guilty verdict!!

  21. Suzanne says:

    Had already contributed but managed to get hubby to dig deep in his pockets to get you over the line. Well done.

  22. Taranaich says:

    I didn’t get the chance to donate until today (fortuitously, as it’s the last day I could’ve managed it) so I’m taking a small percentage of the credit for that new record!

  23. Justin FN minty says:

    Havenโ€™t bought a paper in 4years since I found this site,stopped paying the bbc tax this year
    Saving me over ยฃ1200 in total,so,sorry stu I am still due you ยฃ1150

  24. Artyhetty says:

    Fabulous, well done. If you don’t ask, as they say.
    Thanks for all you do Stuart, short of going down the pits, it’s about the last job I would want to do.

    Scotland is much indebted to you quite frankly.

    Those who work against their own country and are paid extremely well to do that, are a disgrace. Your work counters their dreadful self seeking, self serving, short sighted and destructive acts against Scotland.

    Enjoy your weekend.


  25. Effijy says:

    Just like the movie Its a Wonderful Life,
    Sometimes the good guy comes through
    Against the odds!

    Bring on Golliath as David has the sling shot loaded.

    Not a penny more than you deserve Rev!

    PS You are due a pay rise and it’s more than earned.

  26. Alan Mackintosh says:

    Oh well, missed the beginning of the month, but just managed to get some bawbies together for you today. A wee nudge towards the 145K point.

  27. Tam Fae somewhere says:

    Another wee donation added.

    Bring on Indy2 referendum!

  28. Macart says:

    That’s amazing. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Heh. There’s going to be a few zoomers and meeja types having a right fume to themselves about now. ๐Ÿ˜€

  29. cearc says:

    Ok. you’ve twisted my arm. Chucked another fiver in the pot.

    At this rate I’ll be losing my hard earned reputation for being tight. (financially, not alcoholically).

  30. Potter says:

    Fantastic,worth every penny.

  31. call me dave says:

    Just finding out about the new record. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Worth every penny too!

    Off to read the afternoon posts now.

  32. Dave McEwan Hill says:

    I winder if Rock has donated to the fake independence supporting Wings Over Scotland (and several others?)

    Rock tends to have a wee break into the week-end. His alter ego crackerjack however will complain that you are a bully DMcEH

  42. Highland Wifie says:

    Added a bit more because..well just because ok. He’s more than worth it.

    Scottish history in the making.

    Fucking YES!!!




  51. Cactus says:

    Be one of many.



  52. Crackerjack says:

    If Nicola announces the date for IndyRef2 in the Autumn, then I think she will make it for May or Sept 2019.

  53. Cactus says:

    Life is a game, SO learn how to live.

    [R]evolution is ‘in demand’.

    Life… is the ULTIMATE Play The Game.

    Morning x.




    17 doon.

  54. Cactus says:

    Did you know this TV watchers, that True Bloods “Sookie” is part angel, like ‘fae’.

    Fae where?

    Ah’ve just started Season Four.

    Still wanna do real bad things WITH you Daisy Walker ~ xx

    iScotland / iScot.

    Same love.


  55. Cactus says:

    Oops, Sookie is not part angel… she’s part fairy…

    Is that the same thing… dunno.

    Get yerselves over to Glenrothes laters today, good crowd, mwah x.

    Go Yes M8… fly eh high!

    Drive Scotland x.

  56. Alisdair says:

    I am pleased to see this. Please don’t ever stop doing what you do. Scotland needs you and the Scots would be diminished without your work.

  57. Cactus says:

    Enjoy your trip…:

    It’s hot stuff!


  58. Cactus says:

    Get on board the Scotland Express!

    Ah got the hots for you X.

  59. Cactus says:


  60. Cactus says:

    Ah cheers to ye’s Meg merrilees, Dr Jim & Liz g ~

    On the other side.





  61. Cactus says:

    Scotland you are SO FUCKING cool.

    Paint us a picture Chris.

    Your choice.

  62. Cactus says:

    Swimming is good to let your body stretch.



  63. Cactus says:

    Please cum in any time New Wingers, ahm just having a real good time.

    WOS 2018 fundraiser tops the lot.

    Believe always xx.

  64. twathater says:

    Donated another wee amount , well done Stu we can beat the barstewards with your indomitable leadership and exposures

  65. yesindyref2 says:

    See the other thing is, there’s this sleight of hand see, now you see it, now you don’t, see what I mean?

    Oh, ho, ho
    It’s magic you know
    Never believe, it’s not so

  66. Osakisushi says:

    Thanks to Rape Clause Mooth and her tax comments, I donated today in the hope I would ensure prior totals were bettered.

    They were.

    The next question is to ask when Holyrood will pay attention to us for IR2. Westminster cannot fight a war on two fronts and the Brexit opportunity risks slipping away, then we will be faced with the “all pull together” crap.

  67. Cactus says:

    Tis less than 7 hours to go until it’s too la…

    SO be one of the many ones.

    Ahm feelin’ perky.



  68. Cactus says:

    2265 fundraiser page donors, SO far…

    Are you a Winger:

    They shure know THE number.

    Think Steel Panther

    Hehehe baby.

  69. Cactus says:

    The 2018 line is drawn at 9am, be a part.

    CC will craft it before then.

    Lookout for 7am’ish!

    Hamish time ๐Ÿ™‚

  70. Cactus says:

    The last stretch.

  71. Meg merrilees says:

    Cactus you seem to be keeping this strand going on your own, man.

    Great to know that the funding is still trickling in. We’ll need every penny when the time comes.

  72. Cactus says:

    Merci, Meg, bonnie lass xx

    I Love Scotland.

    Say.. love is in the air…

  73. Cactus says:

    Ahm gonna guess 2,271 donors on the donor page BY 9am today.

    Good Night.

    Good Morning.

    Glen Rothes.


  74. Meg merrilees says:

    I’ll raise you Cactus – 2275 donors by 9.00 am

    definitely bed time now – couldn’t sleep earlier…

  75. Cactus says:

    Hehe excellent Meg, thanx, ah call yours.

    I go sleepy too.

    Bon voyage.


  76. brian penn says:

    Well done rev.
    Meanwhile back in BBC world 200 exclusions in our schools means we are just as bad as 50 gun and knife deaths in london.

  77. Gullane No4 says:

    Great result sir, keep up the good work. Step by step we are getting there.

    Jakey Burd on the TV saying that from tomorrow, many of ‘us’ will be paying more tax. Seems like we have a ‘them and us’ status at the BBC now.
    I cannot imaging many BBC salaries falling into the lower tax bracket.
    Funny how Jakey failed to mention that 70% of Scots will be paying less tax, the 70%ers know though.

  78. heedtracker says:

    Wow! Wish I could have chipped in more.

  79. heedtracker says:

    Jakey Burd on the TV saying that from tomorrow, many of โ€˜usโ€™ will be paying more tax. Seems like we have a โ€˜them and usโ€™ status at the BBC now.

    All just another display of the way BBC attack propaganda gets us to vote tory, for the rich.

    Its what Bird and friends get paid to do, all out of the UKOK tax take.

    Shameless bullshitters, doesn’t even come close.
