    Now,now, you know by now the answer is always ‘none’, because as soon as they’re caught, their gender switches to ‘predatory offender’, and the ‘Real Genuine Trans Community™?’ remains unsullied and pure.

    Ms Robison:

    Please spare us any more embarrassment and resign. We are not interested in hearing or watching your faux reality-denial.

    What we need is grown ups in our government cabinets who do their work with their eyes open. We do not need spineless puppets abusing their power and our democratic structures to uphold the interests of perverts, rapists, paedophiles, perjurers and worse, the unscrupulous entities using them as a trojan horse to stop Scotland’s independence.

    You can never be trusted with solving a problem if you are either adamant you cannot see the problem or you are making that problem bigger by refusing to stand by the victims of the problem and choosing to stand by those who caused the problem.

    When you do that, you become part of the problem.

    You cannot credibly claim you are representing the people of Scotland if you are going deliberately against our interests by refusing to eliminate the threats against women and children and you are instead helping dark forces to make those threats a permanent feature for political reasons.

    You might be playing the game of thick-pretend to deflect scrutiny when you claim you cannot see what is staring at you in the face. But you are fooling no one. We refuse to play that game.

    So stop patronising us, stop insulting us and stop dismissing our concerns. They are valid concerns and if you cannot see it, then it is YOU who is not up to the task. If you are so useless as MSP that cannot/will not act on those concerns, then stop wasting our time and taxpayers’ funds and leave.

    I am afraid my attitude is that independence will have to wait until this dreadful SNP is got out of the way, together with the Greens. The Greens should never have been allowed anywhere near government. Their agenda is toxic.

    In fact, transgenderism has poisoned the whole body politic. We should have expected a human reaction from Robison at the ordeal that had been visited on a child by Andrew Miller but instead we got the venal politician’s instinct to simply protect their position and dig in and defend what they had voted through. It is shocking that they thought of their trans allies first rather than the nightmare that had been visited on a child.

    Meanwhile, as if to underline the dreadful choice they had made, we had Sturgeon glowing with mad delight at receiving an award for being a ‘trans ally.’ Michael Cashman’s appalling speech at the event demonstrated the dangerous grievance/revenge culture that’s being enabled and encouraged by these wretched politicians who seem to have lost their moral compass.

    Far from being ‘kind’ they reveal themselves to be lost to all common humanity in support of what appears increasingly to be an angry, vengeful movement bent on bringing down the structures of society that protect the vulnerable (which is all of us at some point in our lives.)

    (We should write to those of our MSPs who voted down the amendment that would not have permitted sex offenders to change their identity, as Andrew Miller also evidently intends to do. All convictions die with the dead name and witless, uncaring MSPs enabled that.)

    Yes , J . My thoughts exactly .

    I rarely find myself in disagreement with the estimable Robin McAlpine , but in a recent blog-post he insists we HAVE TO find accommodation with both the SNP & Greens .

    Well , sorry Robin , but NAW . We don’t , at least , I don’t .

    I don’t know how much more evidence is required before the total uselessness n toxicity of this unasked for/inflicted on the people of Scotland Nu SNP + Greens * alliance * is seen and understood .

    There is ZERO possibility of Independence as long as these two aberrations are in power – Z.E.R.O .

    Aye , I hear the predictable riposte eg ….letting-in a Unionist Party won’t help either .

    Well , raise my rent , I never thought about that !!

    The difference in that scenario would be not having our intelligence , patience & trust insulted on a daily basis , as we are currently by that motley of useless , lying , warped fuckers .

    I realise Robin was referring to the other ( pro-Indy ) Party’s * need * for rapprochement with NUSNPGREENS – and not individual punters like myself . That’s up to them ; I’m pretty sure if they do they will be tarnished by association .

    Short of an internal revolution in both SNP & GREENS ie sending out the clowns and getting back to their cause celebre – and the chances of that are remote – there’s no way they should be given the slightest support .

    The Sturrell Gang murdered the SNP and the zombie inheritors of that poisoned well will soon drown in it .

    Excellent cartoon C.C . That analogy occurred to me too .

    I know two men whose career choices were a direct result of their addiction to porn and/or sexual abuse.

    The first was a schoolmate who had decided, by the time he was 14, that he wanted to become a police officer with the ultimate aim of joining the Vice Squad – then he would be able to access hard-core porn. (I don’t know if he fulfilled his ambition but I don’t doubt he was serious.)

    The second trained to become a Catholic priest because he knew the power they had, especially with regard to accessing women in their own homes. I know this because he told me. He did not complete training, was thrown out of the seminary and went on to become a drug addict and active rapist. (He had himself been raped on a regular basis, by priests, from the age of 12.)

    Ahh!, but does he “want” to pick up the fight or is he just pretending to pick up a fight?

    We all know this new charade is set to fail – For as long as the SNP continues to cowardly hide behind the Scotland Act, they are giving the Uk gov carte blanche to block this and any piece of legislation they want. We have already seen how, by our MSPs cowardly hiding behind the Scotland Act and acting in the interests of the crown instead of the people of Scotland’s, Westminster can retrospectively change whatever law they want.
    In other words, our MSPs are willingly complicit in it. They know it, we know it, Westminster knows it. So who do they think they are fooling?

    It is a waste of taxpayers’ money – because it is not in the interests of the UK gov to roll over about this, Humza will be effectively throwing our money away. At a time people is going cold and hungry, if this is not highly irresponsible and a gross mismanagement of our assets, what is.

    It is a complete waste of our time – These charlatans have already lost us EIGHT YEARS of our time doing nothing to progress independence or to protect our assets. Now they are using this trojan horse as another convenient excuse to continue wasting our time, mismanaging our assets and stalling independence while they line their pockets.

    It is undemocratic – These amateur dictators forced this crap through Holyrood without a real mandate for it and when, knowingly, it has serious potential to put women and children at risk, and when, knowingly, the majority of the people of Scotland opposes that legislation. Yet, they have the brass neck and unscrupulousness to try to stoke up support for this toxic legislation by the back door by pretending it is an attack on devolution.

    Again, who do they think they are fooling?

    It is a distracting charade – This theatrics is the only thing that Humza appears to have in mind to “progress” Scotland’s independence.

    Once again, who do they think they are fooling?

    I thought we had reached the bottom of the uselessness barrel with Sturgeon. But along come Yousaf, Robison and McAllan to prove me wrong.

    If we want this farce to stop, we want Scotland’s politicians to stop taking us for fools and we want Scotland to become independent, at the next GE, we need to teach these charlatans a lesson by ejecting them all from our seats. All of them.

    This gives away their real motive over juryless trials. They’re not genuinely concerned with conviction rates for sex crimes. If they were, they wouldn’t for a minute have considered allowing convicted sex offenders to get these certificates.

    It’s all about giving themselves greater potential to stitch up political opponents, the desperate move of a failing corrupt regime that will do anything to retain power and patronage.

Shouldn’t the top brass in the SNP know *exactly* how to obtain that objective? That wording alone tells me it’s all bullshit window dressing. Either that or the current self-serving troughers in the SNP truly are that inept.

    These scummy sewer dwellers will never get another vote from me under the current mob running the SNP. If i don’t get an ALBA Party rep to vote for then i spoil my ballot papers. And as far as elections go, ALBA or not, i’ll never help send anyone to the Westminster trough. I will spoil my ballot in every Westminster election.

    Further to the SNP’s latest window dressing extravaganza in June. If they’re serious about independence then why release an announcement of such importance at a weekend? Unless i missed it earlier in the week? Because in politics everyone knows the weekend is when political parties usually dump bad news etc because far less people will actually see the announcement.

    Dumbarton Rock: it was never just intended to make life easier for ‘trans’ people. The ‘trans’ lobby lobbied to have the age of ‘transition’ lowered; to have ‘gender reassignment in the 2010 EQA replaced with ‘gender identity’ and to have the medical restrictions removed to bring in self-ID. The implications would have been spread throughout the UK – which was also the intention. ‘Trans’ have all the same rights as we do, so this would have been an extension to existing ‘trans’ rights which the rest of us would not get. I wish that people would stop apologising for this vile movement and get their heads round what it is doing to our society. I’m not talking about the porn-addled men at the bottom of the pyramid or even the vicious men’s rights activists at the centre, but the corporatists at the top who stand to make squillions out of this. That is why it was introduced.

    Yes, there is a handful of transsexuals who do not wish to access female spaces, etc., who do not call for an extension of the 2004 GRA and who wish to live their lives as best they can. No problem. The problem lies in the vast numbers – and there are far, far more than we ever dreamed of – who want to access female spaces, etc., who do want an extension to the GRA 2004. What they want and what women wish to retain are incompatible, totally and always incompatible.

    The Scottish government, backed by Labour, Lib Dems, Greens voted to help the corporatists and they were willing to destroy all female rights in order to do so because, if introduced, GRR would allow access across the board and negate everything – absolutely everything – that females fought for. It would all be wiped out overnight. And there would still not be independence anywhere in sight.

    “So … Independence will be closer once the Party that has been in existence to bring this about, and has been fighting for nearly 80years for it, has gone”

    Yes, that is correct. Why? Because that party you talk about does no longer exist. It ended on the 14 November 2014, the day a political fraud took over its “leadership”. What is left is a carcass whose only worth is the flag and the rosette which colonial parties like labour can use to hide behind and capture the yes vote with under false pretences.

    Labour as the SNP has been holding the yes vote hostage since 2015 to keep it on a leash. That is what the political fraud Sturgeon has been doing since the minute she betrayed the constitution of the party declaring a vote for the SNP was no longer a vote for independence or even a referendum.

    “you think that Labour who are more Tory than the Tories will be in anyway interested”

    And who gives a shit about labour or Tories or, heaven forbid, libdems? Labour, Tories, SNP and libdems are the exact same thing: crown political arms tasked with preserving the union.

    “Get real people”
    We got real quite a while ago, thank you. That was when we realised Sturgeon was taking us for a ride by dangling carrots while handing to Westminster and the English court otherwise known as “Supreme Court” every vetos for Scotland’s self determination she could find.

    “Vote SNP in the GE”
    Hell No. Never again. I want the SNP gone from Westminster and Holyrood. Every single MP and MSP, gone. Under Sturgeon they have proven to be totally useless and totally unwilling to bring forward independence. They proven to be a pack of charlatans taking us for a ride. They have indulged the political fraud Sturgeon at every turn and with every obstacle she chose to throw as an excuse for progressing independence. Now they are doing the same with Yousaf.

    “we may have the balance of power”
    And what the hell do we want that for? We want independence, and that means ditching UK politics for good, not getting deeper into them. Ditching UK politics means not taking the seats and not swearing allegiance to the crown, not to continue playing the useless Westminster game while Scotland is being drained of its resources.

    “Who knows?”
    Who wants to know? I most certainly don’t. I did not vote SNP in the past to get “the balance of power” or to play UK politics. I voted SNP to end the union, it is as simple as that. As far as I am concerned they failed, they misused my vote and did so deliberately after being given every mandate and every majority they could have ever needed to terminate the union.

    I shall be voting for independence at the next GE what come may. If that means spoiling my ballot by adding in the option of independence myself, so be it.

    It’s not just the strategy Stoker, but the SNP’s convention in Dundee on the 24th is programmed for the same day as the AUOB March in Stirling.

    You’d think the SNP would perhaps check the dairy first for wider YES style events before announcing conventions to heal division, but after Tommy Sheppard’s “alternative” event on Calton Hill timed to clash with the massive AUOB March in Glasgow, you’d be forgiven the SNP actually plan their events to coincide deliberately.

    Is that unfair to say? Hardly, since Yousaf himself had been invited to Stirling specifically, but declined, promising to send a minion in his stead. Another significance sent whizzing over his head…

    It is now an established tradition that Sturgeon’s nuSNP doesn’t give a shit about anything except the nu SNP. What a bunch of self serving, tunnel visioned arseholes; obnoxious hubris on stilts.

    Just last week, the deadly pens of Chris Cairns was marking the SNP burying the SNP’s reputation for competence, yet the SNP just can’t help themselves.

    It is NOT unreasonable, from an international point of view, to have a residence qualification in any “independence” referendum or “vote for independence” within a recognised nation, country or whatever.

    Thus it is quite simple. In any vote or referendum on Scottish independence, there should be a qualifying residential rule; I suggest that 6 years is workable.

    Students from outwith Scotland, studying at Scottish universities, will be here for 4 years. Medical students will be here for at least 7 years. They may tend to stay here, depending on job offers.

    To me, we don’t need retired “ex-pats” from England, who have moved to Scotland to take advantage of the lower property prices, having a say in our democratic future.

    I have made it my mission over the past couple of years, in conversation, to name the primary culprit under Sturgeon (she who thought there may be complaints against AS but didn’t admit being one of the accusers), Lady Marmalade (the archetypical perjurer), the wummin in the car with the impossible leg-grope, and so on.

    You “have to” believe. This suggests you were already prejudiced against him even before the court case started and any evidence presented. Is he the only man for whom “innocent until proven guilty” does not apply?

    “He is yesterday’s man”
    On the basis of what, exactly?
    He has demonstrated that, after the fabricated case against him, after having the entire Sgov apparatus against him, the entire unionist press and broadcasters, the COPFs and after the perjurers continued to damage his reputation behind the shield of annonymity and government quangos, he could still lead a brand new party. I challenge the useless Sturgeon or Yousaf to ever be capable of doing the same.

    For what I have read, The Scottish Greens were created in 1990. After 20 years, in 2010, they still had less than 1500 members. Alba, with Mr Salmond as leader, emerged in February 2021. Two years on and it already has more than 7,000 members. As per Nicola Sturgeon, remind us all again the speed at which she haemorrhaged SNP members?

    The most clear sign you are a “yesterday’s leader” is if the membership under your stewardship declined rather than increased during the last year. I think under that measurement, Mr Salmond might be the only “today’s leader” in Scottish politics. Let’s reconvene in one year’s time and see how much the SNP membership has increased with Yousaf as leader.

    “He has a mountain to overcome in the mind of the public”
    That is what you would wish. Over 7,000 members in two years seem to suggest that he is at the very least half way up that mountain. The loss of membership seems to suggest the SNP is half way down that mountain.

    “I think that there is a place for him in the winder movement”
    Well, that is generous of you. Do you see a place in the independence movement for a political fraud like Sturgeon? Because I don’t. But then I don’t see one for Yousaf either. I see however a placde for them within labour.

    “he like the rest of us has to get behind the SNP”

    Err, no. He, like the rest of us, has to come to terms with the fact the SNP died the tragic day he stood down as its leader in November 2014 and the leadership on a party on the way up and ready to win the majority of Scotland’s seats in the 2015 GE was left in the hands of a political fraud who proceeded to completely dismantle the party and rendering useless as a party of independence.

    “for the greater good”
    Of whom, the gravy train riders or the union?

    “Imagine how statesman like he would appear if he were to endorse the SNP”
    Oh dear. Are the SNP troughers relying on Mr Salmond making the case for their party because they can no longer manage it themselves? That is really hitting a new low, isn’t it?

What you cannot honestly do is claim there is no clash between interest groups. Yet this is what trans activists and Scottish politicians from all parties prefer to pretend.

    Trans activists and Scottish politicians from all parties argue that transwomen are women hence there aren’t two groups.

    This reminds me of the argument that Scotland ceased to exist in 1707 and became lesser England’
