    The cops have obviously been hugely overmanned since 2007.
    They had a worrying time in the banksters crash of 2008, when they thought that they maybe ‘downsized’ and actually started walking the beat again. Hilarious.

    Such crime as there is, they seem to be reluctant to attend in favour of chasing this nonsense.

    Nice to finally see a picture of Chas and Main.

    If you called someone a bastard and their parents never married would the case go to court in a few years when the backlog is caught up?

    If found guilty and have no funds would they put you in a queue for when a prison bed becomes available in the next few years?

    Would the courts provide you with free legal aid and again at the appeal.
    £2,000 per week to keep someone in prison.
    Would it be cheaper to offer £3,000 and a free flight to Rwanda.

    “They feed on hate and fear, and if they can’t find any then they induce it.”

    Yes, Scots have long since been subject to the deceit of colonial rule which benefits only a privileged minority. Why does anyone think we have an independence movement if not to remove our oppressor?

    Mair laws that also privilege certain groups and/or ‘elites’ continues this theme. The ‘divide & rule’ method only serves to weaken the independence movement – as we will nae dout see at the next UKGE.

    Fundamentally the colonial wretchedness of an exploited and marginalised people and obliteration of their culture continues until such time as they are liberated, because, at the end of the day:

    “What is fascism, if not a regime of oppression for the benefit of a few? The entire administrative and political machinery of a colony has no other goal. The human relationships have arisen from the severest exploitation, founded on inequality and contempt, guaranteed by police authoritarianism” (Albert Memmi).

    Yes, according to Aime Cesaire, mystifying and clearly coercive laws that favour and hence elevate only particular interest groups thus ensuring their privileged position are by implication biased and authoritative; this is made worse when such laws “cry out for punishment” against an already oppressed people who themselves remain subject to a “hateful racism” which is part and parcel of all colonial societies and where, “in general the old tyrants get on very well with the new ones”.

    Those with the eyes to see it are aware that this is not limited to Scotland but is being rolled out across Western nations as we see their populations replaced and governed by unelected placemen/women and deviants.

    @Alf, a piece on propaganda from yesterdays Herald, does it appear that Communism is given the usual body swerve for any kind of criticism because then people might start looking at over representation and noticing parallels with the here and now? I do not recall any kind of public consultation over the huge 404 flag painted at the Saltmarket and the BLM logos on walls around the city of Glasgow which brings us back to propaganda. Black and brown nationalism are not only encouraged but celebrated in our countries but any kind of recognition of a white majority culture or identity is in the process of being erased and made literally illegal.

    Sesame Street is a bit dodgy tho – Big Bird is a racist, and the Cookie Monster is a holocaust denier … something about “if it takes X long to bake Y cookies in an OVEN, then how long does it take etc” – and from that there is no comeback. They cut that episode. Lines like BB talking to the multi racial kids and saying stuff like “where are you REALLY from?” don’t scan well these days. Elmo, Bert and Ernie, there were other scandals, drugs, underage puppets, epstein island, you don’t want to know.

    Satire is dead, or no longer possible, as you just wait a bit and it comes true; the real cops are far funnier than anything that’s been in Scot Squad; Viz comic predicted much of the modern world some 20 years ago, e.g. Student Grant is Owen Jones and Millie Tant is, well, every feminist you ever met. The cops have now become The Bottom Inspectors, but instead of examining your ringpiece for errant bits of toilet paper, they scan your social media for misgenderings and problematic attitudes.

    In my opinion – born of experience – this is true of most (if not all) public service in Scotland; the legislation and rhetoric against sectarianism which has blown over the land for decades being entirely empty. Worse still is the classism which drives all of these systems. – Being born in the ‘wrong’ place of the ‘wrong’ heritage is only excepted when some virtue du jour needs signalling or a fetish needs to be satisfied or a statistic needs to be fiddled.

    This is not new… it was happening in the 60s and 70s and by the accounts of elders; long before that.

    Tartan Tory says: 16 March, 2024 at 10:08 am

    ‘Scot Squad’ is actually a contemporary police documentary series!

    You’ve no idea how close to the truth you might be with that. – There was (for example) a real-life incident back in about 1982 involving some chickens let loose (by a Cop) in a lay-by, a new-ish Volvo Estate with a (then) young driver and his pretty Chinese-looking Fiancee; and a bloated (think Mr Blobby in Tunic and White Cap) ‘Traffic’ cop who rather seemed to resent the fact that her father was (a) wealthy enough to own such a vehicle and insure it for ‘any driver’ and (b) casual enough to send ‘the kids’ off on a Saturday jaunt into darkest Aberdeenshire in his slightly-flashy-newish motor to collect stock for a catering job…

    It probably didn’t help that the boy who was driving had a ‘Fenian’ name and a weegie accent either!

    Of course, by the time it the incident actually made it to Scot Squad (decades later!) it had been sanitised (or should that be chinese-whisper-ised?) to make ‘the Polis’ look slightly less stupid than they actually were in real life; the casual racism and resentment of those who were making their own way in the world was of course completely eliminated.

    Today is the anniversary of the death of a wonderful,Scottish woman, Mary Brooksbank, born Mary Soutar.

    You may find out about her at wiki or in Dundonian links. One well known song she wrote is called either The Jute Mill song or “Oh, dear me”. The song can be found online. It should, perhaps, be better sung by a woman but I like The Parcel O’ Rogues version.

    From unionsong.com (trade union)

    “Mary Brookbank herself a jute worker wrote:
    “The life of the women workers of Dundee right up to the thirties was … a living hell of hard work and poverty. It was a common sight to see women, after a long ten-hour-day in the mill, running to the stream wash-houses with the family washing. They worked up to the last few days before having their bairns. Often they would call in at the calenders from their work and carry home bundles of sacks to sew. These were paid for at the rate of 5 pence for 25, 6 pence for a coarser type of sack. Infant and maternal mortality in Dundee was the highest in the country.”

    When folklorist Hamish Henderson asked Mary Brookbank how much of the song came from mill workers she replied:
    “Only the ditty, ‘Oh dear me, the mill’s gaen fest, the puir wee shifters…’ The verses are all mine. And that verse, ‘to feed and cled my bairnie’ was brought to me by a lassie who was worried. It wis hard lines if she, ye hid an illigitimate child and you had to pay for it aff that meagre wage, you know what I mean, and she used to say, oh I wish the day was done. And eh, tell me her troubles, her trackles, what she hid tae dae for her bairn and that, nae help that sort o’ thing, and that brought that tae mind. And then I used to think on my own aboot how ill divided the world wis.”

    In the neo-colonial context, the police basically serve the same role as occupation forces; if they were more honest, they’d wear red coats. You can get people to do almost anything if you give them a uniform and a few bucks.

    Of course, here in Scotland we are basically getting fleeced twice; by the UK government and huge global corporations which make billions in profit every year by selling us our own energy and resources. Sorting those leeches out when we are independent will be relatively easy but until then we are basically nailed to a cross.

    What we really need is a national liberation movement, not an independence movement. Taking control of your own affairs and making sure people have enough to eat and live well has nothing to do with abstract ideas like independence, or nationalism for that matter.

    We are in a class war; that is to say, a war to give hungry people something to eat, a war to give cold people warmth, and to give the hopeless hope.

    We will win that war when ordinary people — most of whom probably don’t give a fuck about culture and nationalism — wake up and realise they are being fleeced and that things could be so much better.

    Well, our feet wouldn’t touch the ground as Police Scotland carted us away into police vans for religious bigoted behaviour. I could explain to Police Scotland that its our democratic right to march and celebrate our history in the defeat of the Moors, as the Orange Order does with Catholics in mind, would they buy it? would they f*ck, so why oh why does Tammany Hall aka Glasgow City Council allow the Orange Order to parade not just once in Glasgow but last year their were at least EIGHTY matches across the city by the O/O and its affiliates.

    Mind you Police Scotland personnel have to swear and oath of loyalty to the English monarchy, and on the rare occasion that I’ve had the misfortune to be stuck behind an Orange Order march in my car, I could’ve sworn that some of the police officers walked as though they too were marching in the parade.

    They call that a ‘balanced approach’. In Scotland it’s always important to appear ‘balanced’ when it comes to sectarianism, because we all know that it’s a problem with two equal sides, etc., no one side is to blame, both are as bad as each other, just as is the case in Gaza…

    However, the Royal National Lifeboat Institution declined to accept the money after becoming aware that the band had repeatedly paid tribute to members of the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF), which is proscribed by the UK government as a terrorist organisation.

    @ Ruby, It was obvious immediately that your comment was a joke. It was obvious to anyone who read your original comments and links to the RNLI and Stonehaven petition stories.

    If it makes you feel any better i for one only learned of these issues from your alerts, so thank you. Just because folk decide to comment on other things, rather than comment on something someone else posted, doesn’t mean they think the stories posted by others are any less important.

    Just think how Stuart must feel at times. He puts in great efforts, time after time, to create interesting informative articles backed-up with evidence, no easy task, only for individuals to regularly go off topic and stay off topic. And that’s been going on for goodness knows how long. And we are all guilty of doing that at least once.

    One thing has puzzled me though, from your comments, how could “Scottish nationalists” whip up hatred to drive a 10,000 signature petition when that petition took place long before any mention of it appeared here on WOS? Or were these “Scottish nationalists” on social media platforms and not on WOS? Or is this another case, which has become quite a regular occurrence since 2014, of so-called “Scottish nationalists” conveniently getting the blame for everything and anything?

    If the accusations are false then folk should lodge (no pun intended) formal complaints with the police against that person spreading the malicious lies. I seem to vaguely recall a case of some Orange Order head-honcho from the IndyRef2014 era appearing in the mainstream media spreading utter bullshit. If memory serves, he had to eventually resign his position after sort-of admitting he was wrong?

    So, cheer up Ruby, i for one am grateful for your contributions and i appreciate your humour too. I also suspect i’m not alone in that. So, smile, it’s Sunday. LOL!

    The petition blames Scottish nationalists for whipping up outrage against the parade, which was to mark the opening of a new Lodge in the town, due the Orange Order’s strongly British identity. It states: “…these same people would be furious if this happened to them. So it’s only fair in this country to allow both sides to openly debate and protest peacefully.

    “Groups of people have deliberately targeted the local people to make sure this doesn’t work out for the oranges.

    It’s all a bit bonkers but quite funny. I’ll see if I can track down their petition.

    Maybe they are looking to add Anti-British to their list of hate crime complaints or maybe they didn’t want to believe that ordinary people without any political affiliation just didn’t want sectarian marches in their town.

    Have good Sunday Stoker. Stay Cool! 🙂

    MARCHING ORDERS Police swarm newly-opened Orange Lodge as members gather after planned march was banned by Scots council

    One pub owner told how they decided to close over fears there would be trouble and said it was like a “ghost town.”

    Shops close in Stonehaven as Orange Order descends

    A full list of closed businesses was published online which sparked a backlash. A social media account for Vanguard Bears, a Rangers FC supporters group, urged its followers to boycott the outlets. “Return the serve — shops and businesses to avoid in Stonehaven,” it posted on X/Twitter. “Remember to give them a review on-line.”
    The account also said that stickers posted in Stonehaven with cartoon Orangemen covered in red crosses amounted to hate crimes.

    The number of hate crime complaints increasing daily.

    Its stikers now.

    I need a photo of these stickers.

    Luke & Jack are going to be busy they might not have time to sell their pleasure products.

    That’s the SNP appealing to Unionist voters isn’t it? By banning their marches and criminalising their faith.

    It would have been cheaper to let the march go ahead, and let the protestants have a wee night in their new local lodge and boozer and sing their songs.

    It doesn’t offend me in the slightest. Because I know when I go to Celtic Park, every single song in the pub is an Irish rebel song. About Bobby Sands. Or James Connolly. Or the Sam Song – a popular one at the moment with the fan base about shooting down a British helicopter with a missile…

    It’s just men letting off steam in their own local boozer.

    This Hate Crime Bill is coming to get football rivals and football banter.

    That’s what’s happening.

    It’s all kicking off on ‘The Vanguard Bears’ etc online accounts.

    Let the people sing their stories and their songs, and the music of their native land!

    The Hate Crime Bill is going to unite old firm fans without doubt. It will hasten its demise before it even gets going.

    Their lullabies and battlecries and songs of hope and joy
    So join us hand in hand
    All across this ancient land
    Throughout the test of time
    It was music that kept their spirits free
    Those songs of yours and of mine

    LET THE PEOPLE SING. I say!

    The Protestants are like a men’s shed club. But at the end of the day they are like you and I. Working class men. That go back home to look after their families at the end of the weekend! And they love their football team. I don’t think any of them genuinely hate Catholics.

    I think that the feeling of Scotland is, that the Hate Crime Bill is going to make White males second class citizens in our own country to the Nigerians and Muslims taking over our streets. I was on the bus into town from the East End of Glasgow. And it was full of Blacks and Immigrants. The country is changing.
