Getting Inside the Scotland Office

28 Jan

What I feared and many others also feared might be coming topass maybe not but we should prepare now today.

Butterfly Rebellion

Suspicions have been raised in recent weeks and months that the Scotland Office – the centre of the British administration in Scotland – is gearing up for something big. It is no secret that since the Conservatives came back to power in May 2010 the budget and staffing numbers of the Office of the Secretary of State for Scotland have been on the rise. Since the 2014 referendum the influx of people and cash into David Mundell’s department has been accelerating, with staffing and budget now at a level capable of governing Scotland without Holyrood. They’re up to something.

We want to know what it is they’re up to. The entire imposition of a Brexit isolationism Scotland rejected, the nature of the repatriation of EU laws power grab, and the facts of what happened last year in Catalunya give us cause for concern. The campaign for Scottish…

“But I read it in the paper”

25 Jan

If your stupid enough to believe the Westminster liars are you too stupid to vote in an independence referendum?



The editors of the unionist print media in Scotland must surely by consensus have stopped taking their late-middle-age male menopause medication, as the headlines in yesterday’s and today’s chip shop wrappers attest.

They are not just acting with malice now against any person, group, or political party advocating the heinous prospect of the people of Scotland making their own government decisions. They have changed up a gear to turbo-bonkers mode, the lot of them. Mad as a cut snake.

Just write and approve any old bollox, without as much as a cursory examination of the facts. Your story is crap, it’s sensational and entirely baseless in its accuracy but print it, sell it and thousands of Scots will soak it up.

Once the truth comes out in response it’s too late, the…

‘Ambulance-chasers’* BBC Scotland digs up fake news as Scotland’s ambulance services disappoint them by coping well with the winter surge in demand

4 Jan

This is how Tories tell lies and get their BBC propagandas machine to spread THEM time to stamp them out the lies as well as the Tories and the BBC they all deserve the same fate.

*Credit @MoFloMoJo for the clever headline opener.

I’ve already reported on the strong performance of the Scottish Ambulance Service over the festive period. There was no crisis of the kind hoped for by the Unionist media and politicians. Not even one death they could blame on SNP management of the NHS. Predictably, they have scraped the barrel to find something, anything, they can use to worry their audience and to undermine the reputation of the SNP-led government. See:

Scotland’s finest, our ambulance workers, fail Scotland’s media as they cope with Hogmanay demand

BBC Scotland news found something which they felt could be built up and stretched into a bad news story. Today we read:

‘Thousands of ambulances dispatched with single crew. More than 10,000 ambulances have been dispatched with one crew member on board in the past four years.’

As we read on we do get a bit of context. With…
