As part of their coalition with the Green Party, the Scottish Government have pledged to introduce gender self-identification within the first year of the present Parliament. For the reasons I have previously given, this means that men will legally become women just by saying they are, and women will become men just by saying theyContinue reading "IN DEFENCE OF REALITY"
I’ve been asked if I can make still clearer why it’s such a big deal that the Fabiani Report has shown such utter contempt for the truth, as detailed in my last post. The court order The following is part of the court order, called an “interlocutor”, made by Lord Pentland at the Court ofContinue reading "THE FABIANI WHITEWASH AND THE COURT ORDER"
If you want to know how utterly bereft of truth the whole political process now is in Scotland you need look no further than the Fabiani Whitewash – aka the “Report of the Committee on the Scottish Government Handling of Harassment Complaints”. One of the many reasons why the Sturgeon clique had to concede AlexContinue reading "THE FABIANI WHITEWASH"
Text messages now published in full by the Scottish Parliament show conclusively that Liz Lloyd, Special Adviser and Chief of Staff to Nicola Sturgeon, did interfere in the Salmond complaints process, contrary to vehement denials made on Lloyd’s behalf in March this year. Lloyd has previously claimed that she only suspected there may be aContinue reading "LIZ LLOYD’S INTERFERENCE IN...
I’ve copied the press release below from the Wings Over Scotland website. The selective prosecution of Craig Murray by the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service (COPFS) is one more shameful chapter in their disgraceful history of incompetence and bad faith. Legal precedent will be set tomorrow as Craig Murray will be the first personContinue reading "THE CROWN CAME FOR...
Last week my firm sent the following letter to the Lord Advocate, Dorothy Bain, QC: “We act for Mr Mark Hirst. Please treat this letter as intimation of a claim by him against your staff. “Mr Hirst was prosecuted for an offence under section 38(1) of the Criminal Justice and Licensing (Scotland) Act 2010 followingContinue reading "MARK HIRST’S CLAIM OF MALICIOUS PROSECUTION"
I was astonished to discover recently that you support of the “reforms” proposed by the Scottish Government to the Gender Recognition Act of 2004. Surely you see that this is a matter of the most basic ontology and epistemology. This is what is proposed, as I assume you know: Grounds on which application to beContinue reading "LETTER TO A FRIEND"
According to the latest bulletin from Scottish Government mouthpiece Rape Crisis Scotland, the First Minister’s Chief of Staff Liz Lloyd intervened in the Salmond complaints process on behalf of a woman who later became “one of the complainers” against Salmond at his criminal trial. The woman – let’s call her Ms X – has usedContinue reading "AN URGENT QUESTION"
Documents just released by the Scottish Government strongly suggest that the First Minister’s Principal Private Secretary John Somers attended a crucial meeting on 13 November 2018 where advice was sought from senior counsel on the crisis that had arisen in the defence of Alex Salmond’s judicial review action. Somers has previously denied on solemn affirmationContinue reading "DID JOHN...
Part Three of A Very Scottish Coup is nearly done and I’ll post it tomorrow. In the meantime, here are a couple of things I’ve discovered while writing it. The first thing is this: The Scottish Government have always claimed that the requirement in their procedure for an Investigating Officer to have “no prior involvementContinue reading "WHAT THE SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT KNEW AND WHEN...
My apologies to all of my readers who are eagerly awaiting Parts Three and Four of A Very Scottish Coup, and especially to all of my readers who are journalists with the Murdoch and Newsquest titles, but I just had to take this short break to let you all know that the events I haveContinue reading "IN SHOCK MOVE, BLOG TRANSITIONS TO NEWS"
In Part One, I asked what would happen if we suspended disbelief, and all of our critical faculties, and took Nicola Sturgeon and her civil servants at their word on the handling of complaints against Alex Salmond. Specifically, I asked what would happen if we believed Sturgeon, Evans and the rest that the First MinisterContinue reading "A VERY SCOTTISH COUP (PART TWO)"
Let me be clear, as the First Minister herself likes to say. I don’t think Nicola Sturgeon was being truthful when she made this statement to the Scottish Parliament on 10 January 2019 about the complaints against Alex Salmond: “I did not know how the Scottish Government was dealing with the complaint, I did notContinue reading "A VERY SCOTTISH COUP (PART ONE)"
Here is the further interview I did with Tommy Sheridan for his podcast Tommy Talks on the Sputnik website in which we address the questions of what lay behind the Scottish Government conspiracy against Alex Salmond and how the present inquiry has been designed to fail. My sincere apologies to readers waiting for A VeryContinue reading "THE SMOKING GUN"
I did this interview with Tommy Sheridan for his podcast on the Sputnik website, in which Tommy and I attempt an overview of some main aspects of the Salmond stitch-up. I hope you’ll give it a listen. I’m working on a post which I hope to publish later today or early tomorrow. It’s titled AContinue reading "A Political Witch Hunt"
It won’t surprise readers of this blog to learn that two of the Scottish Government’s most senior officials – Head of “People Advice” Judith Mackinnon and Permanent Secretary Leslie Evans – have once again given evidence to the Salmond inquiry which is contrary to the facts. In this and the next couple of posts I’llContinue reading "CONTRARY TO THE FACTS: THE EVIDENCE OF...
On 7 January 2021 my friend Mark Hirst was acquitted of the charge brought against him by the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service (COPFS). His alleged crime had been the practice of journalism. The court made clear in upholding the defence submission of no case to answer that comments Mark had made on aContinue reading "THEY CAME FOR MARK HIRST"
I’ve just sent the following letter by email to SNP Councillor Mhairi Hunter who is, I understand, a close confidante of the First Minister. I’ll let readers of this blog know if I get a response, which I promise to publish here in full. Dear Ms Hunter I have been reading with interest your tweetsContinue reading "SEX AND GENDER: A REQUEST FOR CLARITY"
My apologies to readers who have been waiting for the promised expansion of my last post. I’m afraid that is turning into a very long post which I expect to publish this week. Meantime, Peter Murrell this morning must surely be the least impressive witness yet at the inquiry, and that is saying something. HeContinue reading "PETER MURRELL EXPLAINS WHY RETROSPECTIVE PROCEDURES...
Yesterday, John Somers told the inquiry that he had no involvement in the development of the procedure which was used against Alex Salmond. This is not true. Somers, in his capacity as Nicola Sturgeon’s Principal Private Secretary, had a key role in developing the policy at a critical time. On Wednesday 6 December 2017, afterContinue reading "WHEN BLACK MEANS WHITE: THE ZANY WORLD OF THE...
