Yesterday, I received a number of messages drawing my attention to Lord Frost's rant in the Telegraph and asking if I would be commenting on it. I was already aware of the article. It was difficult to avoid given the unfavourable attention it was getting from the independence movement. Given that Yes activists make up … Continue reading The ugly face of British Nationalism
However confident an individual may be of their rationality it is always good to get a bit of affirmation. Blogging is a lonely pursuit. You sit, isolated in the bubble of your own mind trying to convey your thoughts to the ghosts of real people that populate the virtual world through the Ouija board of … Continue reading Those who would rule us
Maybe it's the weather. Maybe it's my age. Or maybe it's the fact that I've been spending too much time online 'engaging' with people who would be best ignored were it not for the fact that the constitutional issue is so important. The aggravation and the frustration and the sense of futility are very wearing. … Continue reading Down and out
"We are not four separate nations…" - Liz Truss The British Prime Minister-in-waiting could hardly be more explicit about the 'One Nation' British Nationalist agenda she intends to pursue. British politicians are now quite openly denying Scotland's existence as a nation. What is true for Scotland also applies to the rest of the periphery. Only … Continue reading Saving Scotland
British Labour Deputy Leader, Angela Rayner's remarks about Scotland as reported in The National (Scottish independence 'not very nice' and means 'perpetual' Tory rule) raise some highly relevant and very significant issues. It is unfortunate that she herself seems quite oblivious to this relevance and significance. I see nothing to suggest that she has given … Continue reading The future is grim! The future is Tory!
Regardless of which rat emerges victorious from the sack of the Tory leadership fight, the next British government will be the most brutally anti-Scottish administration since the military occupation of Scotland after Culloden. They may not come swinging swords and cudgels, but their purpose will be the same as it was then ─ to eradicate … Continue reading The British are coming!
The above statement fell out of the head of the future British Prime Minister, Liz Truss, at a hustings event in Exeter, England. The media are making a big fuss about her haughty dismissal of Scotland's First Minister saying that "the best thing to do with Nicola Sturgeon is ignore her". The soon-to-be leader of … Continue reading You have been warned!
The timeline for restoring Scotland's independence is not a matter of choice. If bold, decisive action is not taken to initiate an equally bold and decisive process before the next UK general election, we may find ourselves in a situation even more precarious than now. Who can now doubt that the next UK general election … Continue reading Timeline and gameplan
For many years now - since long before the first independence referendum - I have been warning that the ultimate aim of the British state is to lock Scotland into a 'reformed' Union, unilaterally altered and imposed on Scotland without consultation or consent. A Spanish-style constitution which proclaims the UK to be a single nation … Continue reading The other UDI
The threat to which The Sunday National refers has been looming for years (Tory leadership race 'poses Thatcher threat to Scotland amid lurch to the right'). Arguably, it has been looming for decades. But it can be said with certainty that it is over the last decade that the threat of far right-wing British governments … Continue reading The threat
