Auld Acquaintance

I have ceased blogging to concentrate on writing my book “The Thistle, The lion and the Unicorn”
However here is a taster of the Introduction and first chapter. It is unedited as yet…so this is just the first draft with all its mistakes which I haven’t checked for yet.

The picture on the front cover of this book is the British Royal Coat of Arms. Depicted in it are the English lion and the Scottish Unicorn. In the British Royal Coat of Arms the English Lion takes the dominant side of the shield but the same coat of Arms when used in Scotland the Lion and the Unicorn swap sides with the Unicorn taking precedece.
In the back cover of this book we have the Scottish Royal Coat of Arms which has 2 Unicorns with Scottish Lion crowned on top.

You have to listen to this,really every question after she answers she has to go back in and say(around fifty times) “well what I’m saying” I have a suspicion about her now,when the rape clause question came up Ruth seemed unable to say the word rape she danced around it,made me wonder if perhaps she had been involved in something so bad that she did to someone ! just pricked a wee thought process.

Change Checker

Can’t wait – click here to reveal the UK’s “scarcest” £2 coin

Change Checker has released the first-ever scarcity index for £2 circulating coins. Following the recently published indexes for the Round £1 Coin and 50p Coin, the Scarcity Index tracks which £2 coins are the most scarce and collectable, using a unique combination of mintage, collecting and swap data to give the most up-to-date picture of today’s £2 collecting market.

Brexit v Independence

20 Apr

Auld Acquaintance

whatthefukflag_0

The Control freakery of Theresa May seems to know no bounds.
First she wanted control of parliament so that parliament would not be able to debate anything to do with her Brexit Bill…. She was challenged and lost in the English High Court….But rather than accept that legal decision she chose to appeal it in the Supreme Court and lost again!
Despite losing there…she instead railroaded the Brexit Bill through both houses of  Westminster allowing no room for dissent or alteration. The Lords…worthless unelected peers that they are, attempted to get a couple of amendments…and she basically threatened them do as you are told or you will lose out.. And one thing these codgers care about is their massive daily attendance allowance..so they backed down.
Not satisfied with that…. she then came up with the lamest of excuses to rip up the 5 year parliament bill which her previous mob…

Tank Commander Colonel Roothie

Auld Acquaintance

Rooth

Just When You think that things cannot get anymore surreal….
We now have this image of Theresa May conducting her own personal Electoral war against Scots by declaring that in Scotland this election will all be about refusing the right of the Scottish Government to call another Independence Referendum..
And here we are ….Bang on the button….. On April 17th she Instructs the Army Signal Corp to make Roothie a full blown Colonel of the Territorials…. That will fit in nicely with sending Rooth over the top into her Scottish Colony… Ably backed up by her Colonial Minister for Scotland Fluffy Mundell..

You Couldn’t make it up …Could you? Probably Not….As this is really a case of the Truth being stranger than fiction…

So lets whistle together folks to the tune of Colonel Bogey……  or as the troops sang to it in the 2nd World War… “Hitler has only got…

In Scotland Lets make June the End of May

19 Apr

No comment needed.

Auld Acquaintance

Theresa May after calling for a General Election to take place on the 8th of June has decided to make her pitch to Scotland on the Independence Referendum of All things.
Writing for the Scotsman she said the following:

“Those of us who believe in our United Kingdom, and in the benefits of sharing together the risks and rewards of national life as one people, must speak up for it. In response to the narrow, tunnel-vision politics of the nationalists, who see every issue through the distorting prism of grievance, we who believe in unity and solidarity across our country must work to offer a positive and compelling alternative,”

One has to ask where the rewards are for ordinary Scots Women and Men in her disunited kingdom? Where are these benefits she speaks of? The Only benefits I am aware of are the the ones she and her government are…
