      Oh Stu, I love you!

    2. Thepnr says:

      It’s Friday, it’s five o’clock. . . It’s Crackerjack!

      Good stuff Rev 🙂

    3. Peter Mirtitsch says:

      Amazing. I was discussing this scene just the other day. The weird thing is, it actually would be an idea if our PM was a total genius or complete idiot….hmmmm.

      “The Sheriff is near…”

    4. Winifred Mccartney says:

      TM still displaying colonial attitude + they will never learn. They want to cherry pick but pay nothing and make own rules. I

      Tory Brexit strategy to a tee.

    7. call me dave says:

      Mrs May sadly sidles off stage leaving a vacuum.
      Will no-one stand up for her,…Oh Ruthies back after promising to retire hurt from twitter to pick up the UK baton for our country FGS!

      Quite a day and not enough popcorn! 🙂

    8. Tom says:

      The thing is – it is actually like that.

    9. Fergus Green says:

      Scottish Labour will be after you for this Stuart. A video clip containing the ‘n’-word.

      Maybe Kez will use this as part of her defence. ‘He’s no just homophobic, he’s … etc’

    10. Doug says:

      I keep hoping she is going to get to the point during the discussions / debates / questions of being so exasperated she will just go “That’s it! If I can’t get the brexit I want you aren’t getting the brexit YOU want so NO-ONE is getting brexit. You are stuck with us!” Then I wake up and face the nightmare and fear of immigration control taking my wife away….

      Never in the field of Peace Time European diplomacy* have so many lives risked ruin due to so few.

      *Post World War II obviously

    11. Merkin Scot says:

      Well, they are not so dumb now.

    12. Confused says:

      Bravo!

      (Blazing Saddles has so much to give)

      – new thread!

      All aboard … (and the laughter crackled on into the night)

      I can see it all, a short time from now

      Kez is on QVC with Michelle Mone floggin paste “diamond jewellery” to make a few bob for her legal fees

      Treeza is on freeview afternoons selling “NO MEDICAL Over-50s Funeral Plans”

      Eventually, we all hit our level.

    13. Jason Smoothpiece says:

      Sadly that about sums it up in detail.

      Abandon ship.

    14. HandandShrimp says:

      Ah the golden years when one could distinguish between reality and satire.

    15. doug bryce says:

      The media are helping supporting a Tory lie.
      By March 2019 the UK just needs to agree just three things.

      1) Citizen rights (DONE)
      2) Exit bill (DONE)
      3) NI border backstop

      If these can all be agreed then we move into 2 year transition period where future trade will be discussed. Disingenuously May has tried to link Northern Ireland issue with that of future trade.

      Sadly for May her contradictory red lines mean there can be no credible backstop for NI. Schrodingers brexit : Northern Ireland simply can’t be in and out of the customs unions at the same time. Plus her parliamentary dependency on the DUP means the only credible option of a sea border has been taken off the table…

      Tough circle to square and the clock is ticking.

    16. Thepnr says:

      Will Chris Deerin be next for turning to Yes?

      England and Brexit have made a mug of Scots like me who voted ‘no’ to independence

      And another rivet pops in the plates of the Titanic.

    18. Braford Millar says:

      that about sums up the Tories and Brexit

    19. PictAtRandom says:

      I’m not sure what you can really say about Chequers.

      It’s your final Phone A Friend lifeline. You need someone wise and knowledgeable. So you call Fluffy or Annie Wells…

    20. Macart says:

      Ayup! Zackly like that. 🙂

    21. Hamish100 says:

      surely she will pull the trigger- but with blanks.

      May has treated the EU with respect she claims. She has treated Scotland with contempt. My Country she bleats!!

      NAW HEN ITS OORS

    22. Jockanese Wind Talker says:

      No I have to disagree, Stu

      TMay and the rest of the Tories couldn’t come up with a plan as sophisticated as that.

      This was a plan which actually worked for Sheriff Bart.

      Her plan is doomed to failure.

      🙂

    23. ScottishPsyche says:

      I’m actually scared – she really doesn’t know what she is doing. Anyone else starting to stockpile tins and dried goods yet?

    24. Hamish100 says:

      surely she will pull the trigger- but with blanks.

      May has treated the EU with respect she claims.
      She has treated Scotland with contempt.
      My Country she bleats!!

      NAW HEN ITS OORS

    25. Thepnr says:

      It’s Friday, it’s five to five. . . It’s Crackerjack!

    26. Socrates MacSporran says:

      Very true Rev. She is just crazy enough to try it.

      Off-Topic somewhat.

      I believe some other Wingers have posted on this, but, could maybe a Scottish Government approach to the European Court of Justice get a declaration that Scotland can stay-in, in view of the fact, we voted overwhelmingly to do this, and, the other equal partner in the United Kingdom insists we leave with them.

      Now, that would really get Mother Theresa’s knickers in a twist.

    27. One_Scot says:

      Lol, Sky News – ‘How will the 27 leaders deal with Mays challenge’.

      Probably by pissing themselves laughing all night.

      Jeez the BBC and Sky doing their bit for King and country. Can’t they see how obvious they are. #ScotRef ASAP.

    28. Clootie says:

      Looks like a hard Brexit for certain. The right wing media herded the masses into the corner and now it will ensure that they are indignant that THEIR great nation has not been respected.

      If after this fiasco we can’t win a Referendum on Independence we never will!

    29. galamcennalath says:

      Chequers has been dead since inception. It’s only been kept alive on May’s insistence and by the UKOK lying media. It’s value might have been to say something was on the table of discussion.

      My understanding is that the EU didn’t shoot it down immediately to give May a lifeline – agree to the Irish backstop and the EU will accept a fuzzy statement on future trade which sounds a bit like Chequers. Thus Brexit is achieved, Ireland has all it wants, there is a transition, and over the next couple of years something like Canada or Norway will be agreed.

      May screwed up on Ireland big time and the lifeline was hauled back.

      So, unlike the movie scene Rev Stu highlighted, May tried the same sort of trick and in response everyone shouted as one … “go on then, pull the trigger!”

    30. robertknight says:

      Our children’s futures being sacrificed on the alter of Tory Party unity.

    31. Arbroath1320 says:

      Just wondering here.

      Was what passed as a “statement” from Feartie earlier today her version of this by any chance?

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQ95ffnU4Sw

      What was all this pish they spewed out that her “statement” was delayed because they had leccy problems in the room she was going to give her speech in? 😉

      Personally I think Feartie had done a runner and was hiding underneath the stairs and they had to drag her out screaming NO! NO! NO! I want my mammy! before kicking onto the stage! 😀

    32. Jeff says:

      ScottishPsyche:
      Aye, av got 15 Fr*y B*ntos pies and aboot ten tins o soup and ten packs savoury rice. Also 20 bog rolls for when the panic buying kicks in – the shelves will be empty…Is this enough though….

    33. Sharny Dubs says:

      Still grates on my nerves to hear her say “my country” it’s not a country, it’s a union of countries.

    34. Jock McDonnell says:

      Seems to me that the simplest solution really is just to dissolve the uk & allow a new settlement to emerge.
      The desperate clinging to a political project that has well passed its imperial peak is just plain stupid. The empire is over. Gone. The uk is a rump empire riven by inner conflicts.
      It’s dragging everybody down.

    35. Robert J. Sutherland says:

      Thepnr @ 16:39,

      Reading his article, his reasons are perfectly sound, so rather disappointing that he doesn’t carry them through to their obvious conclusion. “Maybe I’ll not vote ‘no’ next time in a decade or so” has all the swithery hallmarks of our Henry.

      Don’t hesitate by the door, Chris. Come on in out of the cold, it’s warm in here and the company’s good. Our own future fresh for the making. You won’t regret it.

    36. Gary45% says:

      Nice one Stu, sums it up perfectly.
      Treeeza threatens, Europe laughs, the £s tanked even further. Since Treeezas speech approx. 1100 euros will cost you an extra £10 since this morning and probably more tomorrow.
      The Brexiteers were told the rules of the EU club, so they have NO ARGUMENT. Remember the faces on the “winners” after the vote, “rabbit in headlights doesn’t even come close,” Clueless Bastirts the lot of them, they should have come clean there and then.
      She has simply passed the buck back to the EU, as her government is/ has been void of any ideas.
      Unionist Westminster= spineless, gutless, ignorant, clueless, please add further descriptions.
      I take no pleasure in the situation the UK is now facing.
      F**KING RAGING.

    37. jfngw says:

      Not seen the BBC yet, not May comes out fighting is it. It’s a rematch of the Jerry Quarry vs Jack Bodell from pre EEC 1971. Obviously May is in the Jack Bodell corner, plucky Brit Ko’d in 64secs.

    38. ScottishPsyche says:

      Jeff, thanks for reminding me about toilet roll, I’m sure there’s a shit joke there somewhere…

    39. Cactus says:

      Hehehe, well said Confused, bravo, Love yer stuff!

    40. Jockanese Wind Talker says:

      Theresa is more like this cinematic clip than the video above (be aware distressing scene so don’t watch if you don’t want to):

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vc2cPuwpqTg

      Drill Sergeant = UK Economy

      Gomer Pyle = T May/Brexiteers

      Private Joker = EU and N Sturgeon

      @ ScottishPsyche & Jeff : can you stock cushioned bog rolls for the sensitive bottoms? Perhaps roughly stippled for Ronnie Anderson?

      Update from MEP Alyn Smith today

      alynsmith.eu/scotland_in_europe_update_21st_september_2018

      also Court of session ruling on UK Exiting the EU must now go before the ECJ.

      https://www.scotcourts.gov.uk/docs/default-source/cos-general-docs/pdf-docs-for-opinions/2018csih62.pdf

      Alyn says this is a bombshell ruling and the final say is expected before the end of the year.Mp’s need to have all options before them to be able to vote fairly on the leaving terms of the UK departure from the EU.

      Pound has absolutely tanked during T May’s speech this afternoon.

      Gonna be some Tory Conference!

      I notice (t)Tuthless is still tweeting ( Kept in the typo as it made me laugh)

    43. One_Scot says:

      I never been more convinced than I am today, Scotland is going to be asked very soon if it has a set of balls. Hopefully the answer for all our sakes will be Yes.

    44. Sal Clynder says:

      The campfire scene is also appropriate to represent the Maybot’s speech, and most other pronouncements from the Brexshiteers!

    45. Cactus says:

      Good shout frae the Scots guy on LBC wireless radio just afore 6 bells there.
      (18:00hrs to others)

      An excellent advert and timely call for independence.

      Building nicely, some might say… quickening..

      Still grates on my nerves to hear her say “my country” it’s not a country, it’s a union of countries.

      ______

      I get your point.

      Only … it ain’t really a union. It’s more like a take over of (at least) three countries (part of which is now independent, following Partition) by one other country. And in no way is it equal.

    49. Welsh Sion says:

      Anyone else notice how this pic of the Maybot is presented by the BBC as if the Butcher’s Apron only features the Cross of St George? (My flag is neither … and I guess that goes for the majority here, too.)

    50. Arlene and the DUP are running England now.
      All that ‘My country’ ‘No Surrender’ nonsense from May today.
      The United Kindgom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is not Theresa May’s country.
      Her country is England, the land of steroid Texas Longhoens, chlorinated Colonel Laim Fox chicken, Fracking Bolton, and the City of London overseas branch of Wall Street.
      When Boris and Rees Mogg meet with Jaguar Land Rover Toyota Peugot VW and the Banks over the week end, May will be taken into a wee room, sat at a desk on which will sit a bottle of Scotch, a filter cigarette and a match, and a loaded revolver.
      They’ll close the door behind her and get on with planning the Trump celebrations to inaugurate Old England as the 51st State.
      27 months, tens of millions of pounds later we arrive at the conclusion which we nasty vile cybernats reached in June 2016: No Deal Brexit. 51st State of the US.
      Ireland in flames, Scotland Leaves UK.
      The boil is burst,

    51. yesindyref2 says:

      @Thepnr
      He’s had a few like that, so, probably.

      Massie next?

      The Union will know it’s all over when David Torrance comes out for YES, having burrowed through the secret archives of the Hosue of Commons …

    52. manandboy says:

      Given the staggering levels of humiliation Theresa May is putting herself through, I do have to wonder not only what she was promised by her City handlers when she agreed to take on the Brexit Premiership, but also just exactly what is in the agreement she signed up to with the DUP and which took so long to finalise, whereby the DUP’s agenda is given so much protection for the minority they are in NI.

      The stakes must be very high indeed.

    53. yesindyref2 says:

      @Socrates MacSporran
      At this stage we have no idea what’s up the ScotGov’s sleeve I think. Sideyways it’s also curious that Sturgeon isn’t doing the rounds in the EU any more, maybe there’s no need.

    54. HandandShrimp says:

      Thepnr

      Surprising article by Deerin. He may or may not vote for independence, I guess it might depend on warm noises from the EU towards Scotland and far too much vile chlorinated chicken in Brexitland but it does look like Better Together have lost another advocate, which is no bad thing. .

    55. highseastim says:

      Now she knows how Scotland and Northern Ireland feel not being listened to by the Tory government despite voting to remain. How many amendments were put forward from other political parties and none were taken on board, hell mend her and her horrible party.

    56. jfngw says:

      When May talks of ‘my country’ she is not being deceitful, England is her country and England has decided that they will leave the EU. Scotland’s and strangely Northern Ireland’s (the DUP do not speak for all NI on Brexit) voice’s are irrelevant to her, when your a colonialist it is the logical conclusion.

    57. Cactus says:

      The quickening is happening…

      Oh it’s 7 bells, TFaParty!

    58. defo says:

      Brexit. The pantomime. Act 4.
      The bacterium, on the flea, on yer dug in the street knows where this is going. And has done for a long while probably.
      Raab filling the massive hole that the Brexit bulldog dug surely tipped the wink to those hard of thinking masses, no?

    59. Dr Jim says:

      You thought it was all over, it is now!

      Because the SFA is getting involved, no more will we see players like Henrik Larsson or Brian Loudrup they squeal loudly because it can take up to 3 months to get visas so the transfer window will be useless from now on and the EPL agrees so between the two of them bleating at everybody that’ll be the football supporters all changing their minds
      (for the good of the country of course)

      Will the sectarian loonies now support Independence so they can get foreign transfers of players, you betcha they will
      See when they voted for Brexit they couldn’t give a chuff about their kids futures as long as they thought it was a vote AGAINST the SNP but the thought of not getting a better player than the team next door, well that’s unthinkable in football world, sorry I mean sectarian world

      Watch them vote for Independence now wae thur lips trembling, Oh they’ll do it alright! wae banners saying *We love Nicola Sturgeon she saved Scottish football*

    60. Cactus says:

      Tonight is an excellent evening for all long time lookers / lurkers to have their say about their country Scotland, you are still EU citizens right now.

      You’ve paid in, you were a contributor to the last crowdfunder here, have your say Winger.

      Hey Sal Clynder ~ keep posting. 🙂

    61. North chiel says:

      Party political broadcast for the Britnat Labour Party on STV news tonight . Surely must be a GE in the offing as Corbyn MSM “ exposure” in his “ Scotland region” is on the increase. No doubt the message from the Britnat media in Scotland will be “ please please vote for JC as he desperately requires Scottish seats to get rid of the contemptible Tories”.
      Hopefully our FM will counter with SNP majority win equates to the end of the union ( due to previous denial of section 30 by TM).
      Let’s not “ beat about the bush” this time if GE is called.

      All the way and then some Robert. For all those who have seen (and it is well worth watching if you haven’t) The Spiders Web gives a clue to the extent of the wealth hidden in the tax havens, much of it old establishment money.

      It didn’t say it, but given how much of it was from the asset stripping of Colonies, one of the oldest, most aristocratic of families, quite probably have their hands all over the levers of Brexit No Deal. How very patriotic they are being – in a funny sort of way.

      Best wishes to all.

    63. Thepnr says:

      All the excitement and laughing this afternoon is getting to me.

      I think I’m losing it, everything is becoming a blur and all those different faces are starting to mould into a Fluffy look-a-like.

      It’s not funny it’s terrifying as to what comes next, the pound has had it’s biggest one day fall in a year today, Jaguar are going on a three day week, BMW are closing their Mini factory for a Month and we haven’t even Brexited yet!

      I’ve no idea where we are going to go next or if we will even get a deal with the EU, Chequers is floating belly up and is the stuff of nightmares. Corbyn or Johnson as Prime Minister, totally unbelievable and yet it will happen.

      I truly despair for the future of the UK, I should have listened to Nicola, it’s all my fault..mine..all mine, sniff.

    64. Moonlight says:

      I am on a very slow internet connection.
      When I opened this latest WoS article I saw under the words

      Theresa May’s masterplan.

      A completely blank page.

      I thought this summed it up rather well and moved on

    65. One_Scot says:

      Read a post earlier along the lines of, ‘May must be getting a backhander at the end of this’, and I think I would have to agree.

      Her palm will most definitely be crossed with silver at some later date, however I am not sure it will have been worth the ten years loss of life she will probably suffer due to the mental and physical stress of the whole thing.

    66. Phronesis says:

      We are in a revolutionary moment. The gateway to independence is right in front of Scotland except there is no gate- just a line that we all need to walk over, together.

      ‘The UK has not done a very good job. The last year and a half has not been very productively spent in terms of negotiations with the EU because we have only even recently come to an agreement on what a future relationship with the EU might even look like (Chequers) and that is more an agreed disagreement than an agreed agreement. Nobody really seems to like it apart from the government. There has been very little movement on the NI issue, we haven’t even talked about Gibraltar and nor have we said anything about the only issue that most people agree the referendum was actually about, immigration…

      How is this country going to handle discussions of immigration which are going to be at the core of any agreement with the EU when we are now only six months before the exit date? From a negotiation point of view, it has been slow and given that these two years were supposed to be about negotiations, then the EU side has said to us: why did you even submit your Article 50 notice without having made all these internal decisions first?.I think we are dealing with a revolutionary moment, constitutionally a revolutionary moment. We don’t know if the current parties will survive in their current form. We know there is a gulf of opinion between London and a few other centres in the UK and the rest of the country’

      re;North Chiel@7.37pm

      O/T Yes, happened to see STV couple nights ago, god it’s awful, and there was, immediately after the so called ‘news’ a, ‘party political broadcast on behalf of the Liberal Democrat party’.

      Eh? My jaw must have hit the floor. That Ayrshire trougher Swinson was of course on, and the rest, we turned the sound off. I do wonder how they could afford it though, or is it free for Britnat parties?

      Looks like we are being dragged out of the EU, a no deal hard hard Brexit. Scotland, get your seatbelts on, it’s gonna be a very rough ride.

      Love the film snippet here, needed a laugh for sure.

      That’s THE ONE Robert. That’s the very man. Paul Double the Remembrancer. The person, plus corrupt cabal, who’s pulling Theresa May’s (and her successors) strings, imo.

    69. yesindyref2 says:

      There’s got to be an increased chance of Brexit being cancelled altogether, with the no deal shambles, the (yay) ECJ ruling, and we have to be ready for that when talking to people. Some answers to possible questions like “will there still be another Indy Ref?”.

      My hope would be that even if not committed before people will be so pissed off with the whole ridiculous waste of money, jobs, companies, working days, that they would be near YES, so maybe the answer is “yes I hope so, we need to take control of our own destinsy and not be at the mercy of Westminster Tory party splits and greed for power of its senior members”. Something like that.

    70. Jim McIntosh says:

      So if the final outcome in UK is to remain in the European union whether by a people’s vote or change of gov. do we no longer have a legit reason for second Scot ref.

    71. Rock says:

      Rock (27th August 2017 – “Underneath the Goodyear blimp”):

      “Scotland was on the verge of independence immediately after the Brexit vote.

      The unionist parties were without leaders and completely lost, the SNP had 56 out of 59 MPs and 50% of the vote, the EU’s eyes were (favourably) on Scotland.

      But Nicola squandered a once in a 1000 years golden opportunity by wasting more than a year flogging a dead horse – a separate deal for Scotland which was never going to happen.

      The result: Nicola outsmarted by the collusion between Saints Theresa and Ruth on one hand, and Corbyn on the other, fall in SNP support from 50% to 37%.

      It is my prediction that there will be a “snap” Brexit and the SNP will be caught napping and unable to hold a second independence referendum.

      Or another “snap” Westminster election with the SNP again losing support.

      Despite the pretendy “sovereignty” and boasting of the clueless pompous armchair pundits posting here, Scotland is again as far away from independence as ever.

      If they succeed in neutralising the Rev. Stuart Campbell and WOS, independence will be “stone dead” for at least 620 years.”

    72. Dan Huil says:

      We have at least 1707 “legit” reasons to hold indyref2.

      Nicola (from Scotsman) …

      “Clearly, the Prime Minister has not been listening – Chequers is a dead duck but if her tactic now is to try and double down on those proposals and then seek to blame the EU for a no deal outcome, then she will do huge damage to all of those she is supposed to serve.

      What the latest development shows more clearly than ever is that the only remotely workable way for Brexit to happen is for the UK to stay in the single market and customs union.

      If the Prime Minister is not prepared to do that, then Brexit shouldn’t happen. A ‘no deal’ or ‘no detail’ Brexit are simply not acceptable – particularly for Scotland, where we did not vote for any of this.”

      …. and what are you going to do if it becomes “simply not acceptable”, Nicola?

    74. One_Scot says:

      Lol, there is always a legit reason for a second referendum, which is ‘we want Scotland to be Independent’.

      Why do you think the SNP exists. Seriously?

    76. TD says:

      Am I the only one to be gobsmacked that there is no mention on the BBC news or Channel 4 of the Court of Session ruling today? It was covered on the BBC news where we are (Reporting Scotland) but this was a story of great importance to the whole UK which happened to originate in Scotland. If an English citizen (or is it subject?) had gone to the English High Court and got a ruling that he or she could take a case to the ECJ on the critical issue of whether Article 50 could be stopped by a decision of the UK government alone, would that not have been reported as a particularly pertinent twist to the Brexit story? Think of the Gina Miller case and the coverage that got – is this not just as important a case?

      Of course I know the answer – Scottish courts and Scottish people don’t really matter in all this. We are just a slight irritant in the debate being held by our grown up cousins in England. But we may get the last laugh – the ECJ will not care which nation’s courts made the referral. They will just rule on the question asked and when they do, no doubt the media’s reaction will be “S**t, where did that come from?”

      I really don’t like being an afterthought. Please, please let’s use this chaos to bring about independence sooner rather than later.

      Already we’re getting the *sources high up in the SNP say* and *insiders close to the FM*

      There are no sources, there are no insiders saying anything because they don’t know, the ifs and whens of any referendum details are only known right at the top of the SNP and I’ll bet my house on there being no leaks NONE whatsoever, so don’t fall for the stories coz folk are making it up and believe me I know coz I know a source and he disnae know and probably wouldn’t tell me if he did

      Does anyone seriously think the SNP would leak the tiniest dribble to hand London the slightest hint of what they’re doing right now….course not

      Leave the makey uppy crap to the Daily Record and their pals they’re known for it

    84. Thepnr says:

      @galamcennalath

      I’m pretty sure Nicola has told us enough times what she will do in the event of a “no deal” Brexit. Now I take it that you can include a “no detail” brexit right alongside that.

      It says to me that we will learn soon when the next referendum is going to be if either of the above come to pass. If the Tories miraculously survive in government and obtain any kind of deal that does not include the SM and CU membership for Scotland we will have a referendum early next year is my view.

      Fly in the ointment, the Tories don’t survive much longer and another General Election is called, that importantly they don’t win. That scenario will buy the UK some more time as far as another referendum is concerned.

      Won’t matter what happens. We’re gonna do it anyway 🙂

      Do you think that’s going to persuade a LibDem voter say, who’d be glad Brexit was cancelled, was thinking of voting YES in Indy Ref 2 if there was one because of a no-deal disastrous Brexit, but is shaken in his slipping belief in the Union, and still wondering what the future might have for a Scotland if it stays at the mercy of the Tory party?

      Just been looking through some comments in The National on May’s speech, first one is fine, but I like this one:

      Theresa May should realise she cannot speak to EU governments the way she speaks to Scotland.

      It’s a good theme to make people think.

    91. Effijy says:

      May angry and disgruntled at EU not treating her country with respect?

      How would she feel if she was Scottish and you get the English Tory Government that you have never voted for at most election?

      How would she feel if they had a 15 minute debate and didn’t let her speak. You know. just like they did to Scottish MPs?

      How would she feel if the EU didn’t even let her sit at their table?

      She thinks its all fair when applied to Scotland.

      Yesindy2ref @20:26 there is not a chance that Brexit will be halted if the tories are still in power, and if by a miracle that Corbyn wins a snap GE there is very little chance of him halting Brexit.
      May has indicated today its a no deal Brexit , therefore very unlikely that she will be fired until after March next year so there is not going to be a GE until next May at Earliest, I think the Tories will hold one for two reasons, one to attempt to delay any indy ref and to secure their position for five years because its the best chance they will have before the economy completely tanks and and secondly with the help of their poodles in the MSM Labour will still be divided and up to their necks in fake anti semitism controversy. Additionally the Leavers in England will be fired up by anti european xenophobia fed by the MSM and the Tories . Remember what is at stake here for the Tories

    97. galamcennalath says:

      Telegraph via Google, article behind paywall … “Theresa May is heading for a showdown with her Cabinet next week when ministers will call for a “Plan B” alternative to her Chequers Brexit deal.”

      You can bet that a Plan B, Telegraph style, will be demands May moves further down the hard spectrum, rather than going soft a la Norway.

      However, the main sticking point is Ireland, not any future trade arrangements. The far tight, including the DUP, seem happy to burn the Good Friday Agreement and build a physical border between N and S. Doing so will really piss off the EU and scupper all sorts of other agreement issues.

      Plan B (no matter who is PM or in government) needs to be one off …

      1) call it off
      2) go ‘Norway’
      3) accept NI is SM, border in Irish Sea, and go ‘Canada’ for rUK

      Anyone would think you wanted the First Minister to call a referendum before the right time to call it, Gfaetheblock.

      Now why would anyone want that to happen? Unless of course you, and not the First Minister, knows best when that time is the right time.

      Thing is I, and most indy supporters have a great deal of faith that Nicola is very bright and very much puts Scotland’s best interests first.

      I think I’ll go with the FM and NOT Gfaetheblock on this one.

      So long, farewell

      There’s a joyful sort of clanging
      From the clock in the hall
      And the bells in the steeple, too.
      And up on the telly,
      An absurd jackie bird
      Is popping up and saying, “Cuckoo! Cuckoo!

      Joyfully they tell us
      And firmly they compel us
      To say goodbye to you.
      “Cuckoo! Cuckoo!”

      So long, farewell,
      Auf Wiedersehen, good night.
      We have to go and leave this ugly sight.

      So long, farewell,
      Auf Wiedersehen, adieu.
      Adieu, adieu, to you and you and you.

      So long, farewell,
      Au revoir, Auf Wiedersehen.
      We hate to stay and see more austerity.
      [England:] “Please!” [Scotland:] “No!”

      So long, farewell,
      Auf Wiedersehen, goodbye.
      We cheer, we smile,
      We shout our goodbye.

      We’re glad to go,
      We cannot tell a lie.
      We flit, we float,
      We fleetly flee, we fly.

      We’re off to indy
      And let the Union die.

      So long, farewell,
      Auf Wiedersehen, goodbye.

    123. Daisy Walker says:

      Terrible May’s performance today was for the benefit of the English public and the tory party.
      Jacob Rice Mogg publicly provided supportive comments.

      Terrible May will not suffer a leadership contest at or soon after the tory conference. She is being a good girl, she is delivering a No Deal Brexit.

      Jeremy will not provoke a GE. Eventually by January /February next year, he might, might just back a Peoples Vote – which will muddy the waters and not be about revoking Brexit. It will be about looking good and trying to win the next GE.

      All of which will deliver a No Deal.

      29/3/19 No Deal Brexit means the tax dodgers have won. Their next issue is to make sure they keep the cash cow (Scotland) shackled and mute.

      29/3/19 No Deal Brexit means Scotland is dragged out of the EU against its will and loses what protections, and what scrutiny the EU can provide.

      29/3/19 No Deal Brexit means food and medical shortages, riots in the streets of England’s major cities, a grand excuse to implement martial/emergency law – UK and Scotland wide. And that means good bye Holyrood, good bye any chance of calling Indy Ref 2. Not under martial rule/ emergency rule.

      When you understand that Labour/Tory and Mini me Tories are all serving the same institute and have their parts to play, and when you look at Brexit – not at face value – but from the point of view of the 1% who have for 100’s of years stashed and stolen and never paid tax, suddenly being held to account. They’re like cornered rats. They will quite happily trash the whole of the UK’s economy to keep themselves rich, rather than pay their fair share of taxes.

      It is really hard not to get caught up in the practicalities of this type of deal or that type of deal with Brexit. But if the plan all along is for no deal, to avoid the ECJ at all costs because of its tax laws. Then the motives and game plan are very different and so is the time scale.

      The tax laws being implemented by the EU affect the 1%, the elite, the establishment, and they have never faced such a threat before, not on whole, not in the west.

      To put it in perspective. WW1 and WW2 both made them a great deal of money. And for a while Hitlers regime didn’t bother them too much, they would have fit into it quite nicely – they could have done a deal.

      The only real deal they are trying to broker, is a revoke or relaxation of the EU tax laws on the tax havens. And I have no idea how that’s going, but if your leverage is to say, look what damage we will do to both our economies, help us and we’ll help your 1%, then I think their bluff has been called. The EU can change the tax laws for their own 1% the day after Brexit, and why wouldn’t they.

      Right just now and for the next 6 months they are going to see significant industry relocations to mainland Europe.

      In my opinion, Brexit does not add up, unless you look at it from the Tax Law perspective.

      Thinking out loud here a bit, but hey.

      Any snap Indyref2 is nothing more than a gamble and an immense one at that.
      Polls are going to have to show 47% YES consistently over a3 month period (ergo til next year) or we lose.
      May’s position was bought from the DUP, but, there is no sitting parliament at Stormont – ergo, no support. A snap GE and she can lose then retire to the Lords as an ex-PM and kick the can (also, maybe knock more seats from the SNP, though that’s now unlikely)
      Any other scenario and she is on the broo and Scotland sets timetables. So, unless she is being very well compensated to continue, or insane, I’d be preparing for a snap GE.

      The SNP may or may not wish to stand on an Indy ticket for it, that’s their judgement. Tricky though – Much as I’d like to see it, my number crunching says, there is a better chance not to and let the stats climb to 47% in the stramash period for a few month, then call it. Failing that target, stretch out to the Scot Elections on an Indy ticket, or if the 47% target is hit before it – call Indyref2.
      But that’s a post for another day.
      In the meantime, if there turns out no snap GE, then we still get time to climb to the target.

      Dearie dearie me, I missed this article in the Herald yesterday “Which? raps three Scottish universities over online claims”. For instance according to the article:

      Aberdeen University said it was ranked consistently among the world’s top universities, but did not verify the claim, according to the consumer group.

      So a quick google gives 26368 universities worldwide, and another google finds the Grun’s usual annual tables where Aberdeen is 158th equal. Last year 164th.

      That’s in the top 1%, in fact it’s in the top 0.62%. Don’t know about you, but I’d call that “ranked consistently among the world’s top universities” (at least for 2 years, I didn’t bother going further back).

      Not the first time Which has picked on Scotland, their report named 3 unis in Scotland out of a total of 6 in the UK. Well fuck off.

    134. yesindyref2 says:

      Aberdeen Uni 2016 = 141st equal, 2015 137th equal. I can’t be bothered doing any more, 4 years is “consistently” enough for me.

      “trusted”, “they’ll probably recognise us as the ones who review …”

      Do they have proof of this? Can they provide surveys that identify them in this way? What percentage of those surveyed would “recognise us as the ones who review …”? Personally I use google, confirmed customer reviews on various sites.

      Should they be reported to the ASA – Advertising Standards Authority for “making potentially misleading claims on their websites” as the article states?

      @ Confused says at 2:39 am …. ”Thank-you for your kind words Cactus. Initially I was very baffled by your own “Late Night HAIKU” stylings – but now … I “GET IT” – it’s good to know you’re out there – “Cactus is on the prowl, partying for the rest of us …” “oh the banter!”

      I’m just back from a fantastic party (mostly of Yes supporters) and I just don’t ”get it” at all, Confused.

      I’m confused to say the least and I would say that he or she is not out there parting for me, on my part. Far from it.

      Any chance you could explain to me what you actually make of this? I’m still baffled. And the banter. What banter, FGS? Intelligent? Funny? Informative?

      A reliable source in May’s Cabinet has told me in confidence that Theresa May’s plans are now literally to sound the Hornburg, open the gates, and ride out to meet the Europeans sat on a horse.

      Viewers in Scotland have their own programs; pegging their decisions to the outcome of decisions made by delusional people who have neither the power nor clarity to decide anything.

      This is what circling the drain feels like.

      “N’er cast a cloot till May is oot!”
      Well i think the old Scots adage has now run its course.
      Chequers Plan is both the “only credible plan on the table” (according to May) but at the same time its also unworkable to Europe.
      So a “United” Kingdom where two countries voted to stay in Europe, cant exit unless the two celtic nations dis-unite.

      @ yesindyref2 at 3.13

      “trusted”, “they’ll probably recognise us as the ones who review …”

      Do they have proof of this? Can they provide surveys that identify them in this way? What percentage of those surveyed would “recognise us as the ones who review …”?

      I do online surveys for a number of companies (YouGov, Opinium, Populus, etc) and at least one of them (I forget which) has regularly presented me with a list of review sites, including Which?,and asked me whether I have not heard of them, heard of them but never used them, used them, consider them my first port of call, etc. I’ve also been given a load of adjectives, including “trusted”, and asked whether I’d apply them to the various reviewers.

      Presumably that or similar is the source of their claim. Every time I’m asked that question, Which? is the only one from the list I’ve ever used, but by now of course I’ve heard of all the others because I keep getting surveyed about them!

      Having said that, I agree with you entirely about the nonsensical way they have categorized the universities.

      A snap indyref2 would catch the yoons by surprise there’s no way yes would lose it would have to be 100% rigged for a no vote for that to happen yes support maybe 47% but yes is winning as UK support is 43% that’s with most noers becoming undecided now we can beat them outright and they know it hence why they are out to stop indyref2 at any cost.

      I wonder if Daisy May will panic and unintentionally slip back into reciting her “Strong and stable” mantra. The assembled press corps will simply soil themselves laughing if she does.

      Some helpful soul should sow that particular seed with a resounding cry of “Strong and stable, Prime Minister, strong and stable” next time she’s within earshot.

      @Macart Sorry for late reply Sam, been out enjoying the sunshine while it’s here. I’m glad there’s something there of interest, so many articles out there, it’s difficult to know sometimes which ones to save.

      @K.A.Mylchreest Aw thanks KA, you’ve got me blushing 🙂

      @Fred, Barrhead boy’s blog is terrific Fred as is podcast.

      Thank you for the links Nana…ooft wi the woman from Welt telling it like it was/is!

      These Tories are a right shower of corrupt and manipulative players and they think we are all stupid…we’ve all known chequers was bonkers right from the start. This victimhood stance is utterly moronic, typical Tory English press falling into line as per and the idiots who read their stupid rag howling at the moon.

    165. Nana says:

      I know who the ‘stupid’ are K1, and it’s not us 🙂

    168. yesindyref2 says:

      @crazycat
      Thanks for that, so there are surveys. Still, their complaint was that Aberdeen made the claim but didn’t back it up, and they are guilty of exactly the same “sin” – they don’t have a link to any surveys they had to prove they’re “trusted”. Personally I don’t use their reviews, I didn’t find them very good a few years ago and haven’t bothered since.

      Serving suggestion #395 (cause aye’ve just did like).

      When watching Blazing Saddles, try listening to the audio en Francais, there is much to learn.

      Gonna try the audio in Italian next.

      Bene.
