    I could be wrong but I thought that the police guidance said that something could be a hate crime if the complainant’s feelings had been hurt.

    Our peripheral regions are best with multiple infrastructural problems but also possess extraordinary beauty and landscape ‘assets’ that have global appeal.

    They cannot even build a couple of ferries or support maritime links to Europe.

    The electorate wants good governance and we have had the exact opposite since AS stepped down.

    And its not as if they weren’t handed a nice wee Scottish Maritime Policy on a plate back in 2015, yet decided to totally ignore it, much as they have ignored numerous other urgently needed policy reforms to lift up oor fowk in order to concentrate on churning out mystifying laws which oppress Scots even more.

    It feels like all hell is about to break loose in the world and it is now the case that it would be remarkable if we managed to avoid a massive war.

    It seems that the west wants to escalate as quickly as possible (before Trump takes over in November and starts dismantling everything) and we are going to find out who is bluffing and who isn’t very soon.

    The problem is there’s no Robert McNamara in the Whitehouse to translate events as they unfold into a language that decision-makers might understand. They think they are playing a game of ‘who blinks first’.

    One of the things we found out that we were wrong about after the Cold War was the belief that the Soviets were playing by the same, “rational”, rules of ‘escalation management’ that the West was playing by. They weren’t. Instead they had a bunch of red lines and if any single one was crossed they intended to throw everything they had at us.

    From their perspective, you see, throwing everything they had at us when certain lines were crossed was entirely “rational”. Their ultimate fear was that the west would launch a surprise attack and destroy their missiles before they had left the silos.

    The concept of a ‘limited nuclear war’, with increasing escalation and opportunities for negotiation at various stages, was not taken seriously by Soviet strategic planners.

    They also assumed they could win a nuclear war, where we all assumed such a war would effectively be the end of the world.

    @ Ruby, For most of my life i’ve been a believer in seriously stiff sentences for sex crimes (of any nature). Everything from flashing to rape and paedophilia. It has to be treated as seriously as murder or at the very least as serious as any violent attack. Because let’s face it, that’s exactly what it is. And there needs to be *consistency* right across the board.

    I’m a great believer in locking them away, scrapping parole eligibility for these crimes, and introducing in its place a condition that you must volunteer to medical castration etc before you can even be considered as “low risk” and for release. In my world this all would only take place *after* a stiff jail sentence was served.

    My views were reinforced tenfold when a niece of mine was raped aged just 14. She was never the same again after that and it all got too much for her and she hung herself.

    There is also no consistency in sentencing. I’ve seen rapists who have only raped once being given a sentence far greater than a rapist who had 5 or 6 victims to his name. We have to change the whole system on this issue in Scotland, from the police approach to the “Judges” and sentencing guidelines etc.

    And we also need a greater focus on what happens after sentencing. Serious crimes require those criminals’ “human rights” to be revoked the minute they are found guilty, in my opinion. Liberal society has a lot to answer for.

    There are far too many Lord Longford’s controlling what happens in our legal system. I think someone once called them “bleeding heart Liberals”. I know what i think of them, and it’s a lot stronger than that. But these days i’m not chancing being charged with a “hate crime”. 😉

    Its been know for years that the Great Satan is behind ISIS.

    Most of the (alleged) terrorists who carried out that attack are known to authorities.

    “The identities of four of the six alleged terrorists who carried out the shooting at Crocus City Hall have become known.

    I think the Middle East has the potential to escalate to a regional war but not a world war. Most of the Arab governments are firmly pro-western (their money is in western banks) and couldn’t care less about Palestinians.

    And most of the military hardware they buy is intended for the purpose of keeping their own populations under control so I don’t see the situation changing.

    The war in the east is a very different kettle of fish.

    If it turns out the west played any part in this terrorist attack, I think you’ll see a response that changes everything. Everybody and his dog knows the US has close ties with Islamic terrorist organisations…

    Vlad is considered a moderate, as I understand it, and will be under huge pressure to respond to this decisively. The west seems to think it can openly conduct terrorist operations against his country (attacks on bridges, gas pipelines, etc.) but can they?

    How would we respond if it was the other way around? That’s a question that never gets asked enough.

    Leeds ‘compulsive liar’ jailed for fake rape claims

    These were all fake claims.

    It seems a bit too easy to make rape claims. This guy did it 7 times.

    Judge Penny Moreland said all the victims had spoken of their “agony” of having such serious accusations hanging over them as well as “reputational damage” even after the allegations were shown to be false.
    She also said his lies could have a serious impact on genuine victims of rape who may now fear they would not be believed.

    It’s truly fascinating to see what passes for your “mind” at work though Hats. The western intelligence agencies that largely keep us safe from the worst excesses of Islamic nihilism got wind that something was in the air weeks ago. They even shared that intelligence with the Orcs, and were brushed off with the usual mix of paranoia, suspicion and reality denial that is the Orcs special gift to the world.

    Then, when what was predicted actually comes to pass, the Orcs seek to blame the west, and you pile on too.

    Of course the light to some is an unwelcome friend. The Orc friends in here would of course be rightly ridiculed in most of the countries the majority of Scots purport to want to emulate.

    Their world view is about as popular, or as likely to be realised, as that of the sundry fringe nutter parties of yore, whether the Socialist Workers Party, Militant, RISE or whatever banner they’re frantically waving to distract from their ideological zealotry and political insignificance.

    I see you asked one of the other usual suspects elsewhere about what levels of support they actually thought they had. It’s striking that none of them ever answer, whilst simultaneously bloviating that mainstream opinions like yours or mine are somehow unpopular.

    That’s why I’m really keen to see all these ideas put to the test. Independents for Indy, for example. Or an entire election run by an Indy party on the promises of it being plebiscitary. Ash Regan’s idea.

    I recognise it’s a fatal weakness on here to ever admit to any uncertainty about anything, but I’m open to being persuaded on most things. But I will need real evidence. Not the echoes from within an almost empty silo.

    If Indy support is there, it is truly inconceivable to me, and frankly unbelievable, that no effective political movement will arise to lead it. That’s just not what happens in any other country in the world.

    Just as it’s inconceivable that every Indy politician finds himself or herself fatally compromised.

    Five and a half million people, and we can’t find 100 decent, rational, competent, patriotic, dedicated, incorruptible Scots to lead us to independent nationhood, with the support and backing of the majority of our people?

    Perhaps you’re right. There’s a real tension I think between those who insist that the solution to the lack of progress on indy is via non-parliamentary “cunning plans” or legal routes, or some general uprising of the folk, and those who don’t believe such a route is either plausible or perhaps even desirable.

    There’s little in our recent political or constitutional history that suggests to me the Scottish people is ready to ditch party politics and form some novel mass movement or “special purpose vehicle” with only one aim: attaining independence.

    Look at the numbers still supporting the SNP for example: hardly indicative of an electorate which is about to take to the barricades, whatever the usual suspects in here think!

    The way to make progress is to take the SNP down, and construct a pro-independence majority which can win a plebiscitary election. It’s not rocket science. It doesn’t require a silver bullet, cunning plans, a new mass movement….just some campaigning, some graft and a bit of a realism.

    Thanks for the archived link. Yes, the whole system change must include a very robust section to address folk like that. Even the ones who are not “compulsive liars”. Folk who may only cry wolf once. Like the one in Salmond’s case, if that is the only time she’s done it? These lowlifes make it even more difficult for the real victims to speak up.

    There is absolutely no consistency in this area of law either. There has to be a strong deterrent against folk like that but at the same time it has to be demonstrated that if you are a real victim of a beast then the system will stand with you side-by-side all the way.

    I am indeed a Founder Member of Alba. I even posted proof of it for your tourette’s addled mate Ruby. Fact are chiels that winnae ding etc. doubtless there are a number of things in the party’s platform I might not agree with. Last time I looked the party didn’t demand slavish subservience and agreement with every policy: it’s not the SNP after all.

    I don’t agree with party policy on NATO: big deal. Lots of folk in Scottish Labour support independence, but they still stay in the party. Lots of folk in the SNP disagree with NATO and EU membership, but they stay in the party.

    Only extremists and tin foil hat wearing conspiracy theorists demand ideological purity: we see the results in Trumpist MAGA politics in the USA and Uncle Vlad’s homeland.

    If you can’t discern the difference between the Holocaust, the Armenian genocide, the Rwandan genocide, Cambodia’s Killing Fields, even the Holodomir in Country 404, and the loss of life in Gaza, it says a lot about your level of education: none of it good.

    As I’ve said before I obviously speak for the majority of Scots – whether pro indy or not – because all the available evidence shows they are broadly pro NATO, pro EU, and against the invasion of Country 404 and those perpetrating it. you can howl at the moon all you like, but you have precisely zero evidence to the contrary. If you and the other usual suspects did have such evidence, you’d be shouting it from the rooftops.

    Similarly with respect to Gaza, I’m sure the majority of people are against what the Israelis are doing, but again, there’s no evidence they believe the outlandish conspiracy theorising which is the stock in trade of the fringe zoomers in here.

    It’s obvious you’re fairly ignorant about history and politics: even a primary school kid with learning difficulties would be able to navigate Google sufficiently for their Modern Studies assignment to come up with a list answering your queries.

    How many countries have they invaded?

    Here’s a wee starter for you: check out the list of countries Uncle Vlad’s homeland has invaded on Wikipedia. Even since the fall of communism in relatively recent times, they invaded Chechnya twice, Georgia once, and Country 404 twice.

    Under communism they invaded Finland, Poland, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Xinjiang, Poland, the Baltic States, Romania, Manchuria, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, and Afghanistan.

    Ask yourself why our Eastern European friends don’t trust Uncle Vlad’s narrative of encirclement and fraternal co-operation. It’s not a sin to be as ignorant of the facts as your are Geri: it IS a sin to be as proud of it as you patently are.

    You gonnie tell the UN they have it wrong?

    Yes, I am going to tell them. I’m sure they’ll take as much notice of me as they will of you. It might have escaped your notice but the UN says lots of things that countries – including Uncle Vlad’s – take not a blind bit of notice of.

    I seem to recall the UN also condemned Uncle Vlad’s invasion of Country 404 and imposed sanctions. Are you gonnie tell them they got that wrang tae, Geri? I’m sure they’ll rectify their mistake as soon as you get in touch.

    Unless you’re advocating for some kind of world government which has the financial and military resources to impose its decisions, you’re still just farting against the hurricane. Performative emoting about dead babies isn’t going bring about peace.

    I used to know what rape meant but now I haven’t a clue. I would be pretty useless if asked to serve on a jury.

    They seemed to have changed the definition of rape to make it easier to report ‘rape’ and now they wonder why the conviction rate is so low when judged by a jury. Hence the reason for juryless trials.

    It’s very easy to claim rape and that is the problem.

    With regard to this fantasist who claimed rape 7 times.
    In this article it states:

    https://archive.is/FN2nX

    Prosecutors said Smith, 27, of Armley Ridge Road, Leeds, was a “troubled young man” who had a problem separating “fact from fiction” and may have made the damaging claims out of a “desire for attention”.

    The problem here is you can be a fantasists/compulsive liar who can’t tell “fact from fiction” yet your complaint to the police will be taken seriously.

    I reckon it’s true all these new laws

    stem not from our sympathetic feelings toward victims of sexual assault, but from a sense that allegations could be used to political advantage, that even the most powerful man might be toppled if credibly accused.

    You come across on here as more misguided than just warped.

    So it is worth my time correcting some of the misconceptions in your post.

    US intelligence services knew there was a heightened risk of a terrorist atrocity on Russian soil a couple of weeks back. They shared that information with the Russian government. The Russian government chose to dismiss the intel as a provocation.

    You have to understand that just because the regular agenda-pushers on here airbrush stuff out of existence, that doesn’t mean the stuff doesn’t continue in the real world. Thus if we take the Syrian civil war for example, Uncle Vlad is implicated up to his neck in the deaths of over half a million Syrians, and the expulsion from Syria of over 6 million refugees.

    That causes quite a bit of peevishness among the more extreme elements.

    I am grateful that western security services have the ability to keep us all safe from terrorists who usually choose to vent their vengeance on innocents who have nothing whatsoever to do with the original crimes.

    For example, the Manchester Arena bomb, the music festival in Israel, and now the concert in Moscow.

    Please don’t continue to apply pretzel logic to situations in order to find excuses to blame those you dislike.

    Ellis posted a copy of the Ph D certificate online because someone suggested he was lying. I think it was Scott winding him up. I thought that was pretty sad.

    I have never questioned Andy Ellis’s or Craig Murray’s membership of Alba. Well I suppose I have but not that they were not actual members founder or otherwise.

Look, a squirrel. It’s all a conspiracy & War criminals are heroes just installing *democracy* around the globe LMAO.

    Here’s a novel idea – why involve yerself & cheer on the yanks theft, occupation & domineering world view – leave countries to sort out their own problems. If their population want change they are more than capable of doing it themselves. They don’t need to world police turning up & reducing their country to rubble.

    They have a perfect example on offer right now. Halt funding & collaborating an ongoing Genocide. Issue Netanyahu his jotters. Time to remove a war criminal & throw him to the international court of justice to face war crimes & crimes against humanity as well as election interference in American politics – oh, wait… They’re not. They’re just doubling down. So they’re not the great bastions of freedom & peace after all.

    Ruskies have energy. Gaza has energy. Iran has energy. Iraq has energy. The yanks want it all. They needed it all. It’s all theirs & they couldn’t give a flying fck about peace & democracy or they wouldn’t have been on a mission to fck every country up while they had their moment as top dawg.

    There are many different scenario’s that the English Security Services (ESS) play out, most of the time the perp/perps are killed it ties off the loose ends and stops the perp/perps spilling any beans so to speak. Injured Lee Harvey Oswald was taken away in a hearse and not an ambulance, his fate sealed.

    The (ESS) have informants who are (Muslims) in the Muslim communities they tell (ESS) personnel who in the Muslim community can be coerced or encouraged to fulfill attacks in the UK the people are usually loners or disgruntled at the UK government on its foreign policies etc.

    (ESS) personnel then contact them undercover offering the means to carry out an attack knowing fine well that they’ll be taken down just before or after the attack on some occasions they provide fake explosives and other equipment.

    The likes of the four supposedly 7/7 bombers who were coerced into carrying out a training programme that simulated an attack in London, the four men had no idea they were being set up.

    You never see a photo of them in the underground that they were meant to attack for they never entered the tube station, one or two of the men made it to Canary Wharf to try and inform the press of their predicament, but they were like Charles de Menezes (who couldn’t keep his mouth shut, he played his part in 7/7) shot dead in Canary Wharf.

    Alba was formed well before Salmond took over. So how can anyone be a “founding member”? Unless they were in on it with the bloke who created ALBA originally.

    Plus, i too tried to sign up as a “founding member” and to this day have not received any confirmation. It was farcical. I did a halfhearted attempt at chasing it up but whether it was down to shambolic organisation under the weight of demand or just piss-poor communications or whatever i truly couldn’t say.
