This is just getting embarrassing. Because that starting gun must be red-hot by now. It was previously fired in April 2019. It was fired in May 2018. It was fired in March 2017. It was fired in October 2016. It had already been fired in June of that year. As far as we can tell, it […]
We’re still retired, but this just can’t go unremarked. This is absolute banana-republic stuff. Even before you get into the specifics, it’s simply not the Crown Office’s job to interfere with a police investigation by telling them who they may and may not interview under caution. It has long been recognised that the dual status […]
As we’re a polling site now, a brief post on polls. In today’s Herald on Sunday, Iain Macwhirter repeats the oft-claimed assertion that “Boris Johnson is loathed in Scotland and is the best recruiting sergeant for independence since Margaret Thatcher”. The first part is certainly true, as it has been of pretty much every Tory […]
15 years ago this week (today if you’re counting strictly by date, Thursday if you want to go with election days) the SNP came to power in Scotland for the first time ever. The media operating in Scotland is full of retrospectives and polls on the period, but as usual they’ve missed the real story, […]
We had some poll questions out with Panelbase last week. The results were in most ways wholly unsurprising, in line with all previous polls on the subject. Here they are. Those are the headline numbers. But the detail is worth a delve. The first question probably needs a bit of explaining. Most of the options […]
To: Humza Yousaf (Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Care), Shirley-Anne Somerville (Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills) and Clare Haughey (Minister for Children and Young People) 28 April 2022 Dear Mr Yousaf, Ms Somerville and Ms Haughey, Cass Interim Report: Independent review of gender identity services for children and young people – Implications for […]
Just over a month from now, Nicola Sturgeon will overtake Alex Salmond as the longest-serving First Minister of Scotland. It seemed a fair time to take stock. It’s almost six years since the Sunday Herald headline above from 1 May 2016. (Remember the Sunday Herald, readers? Feels like another lifetime, doesn’t it?) April/early May is […]
This is a message to all the pathetic, craven, cowardly excuses for politicians in both Scotland and the UK who think they can just keep doing interviews where they dodge the question of what a woman is all the way up to the next election.

…to all the pathetic, craven, cowardly excuses for politicians in both Scotland and the UK who think they can just keep doing interviews where they dodge the question of what a woman is all the way up to the next election, and thereby facilitate the mutilation and sterilisation of children and the sexual abuse of vulnerable […]

This is actual footage (including all the slow-mo) of North Korean TV news (source: NK News youtube.com/...WMQUmBXQ), but I thought it deserved a more fitting soundtrack.

Just for a little bit of fun. This is actual footage of North Korean TV news (source: NK News) from today, but I thought it deserved a more moving soundtrack.
The trans-sex-role-stereotype movement has put what would have been concealed and kept behind closed doors on centre stage. This is why normal, decent men look aghast at other men’s behaviour while many women sigh with an ‘oh, this again’. The woke bloke contempt for women is clear and abusive behaviours are on full display. Reading […]
Should disabled children be used as props to make men with sexual fetishes feel better? It doesn’t seem like a difficult question, does it? “At no point, while I was coming to terms with how my [severely disabled] daughter’s future was set to unfold, did I expect to find myself in a position where I […]
We’ve observed that over the last few days a number of Unionists, led by tuba-honking dunderhead Blair McDougall (the man who turned a 30-point No lead into a 10-point one, and who lost Labour 5000 votes when he stood in East Renfrewshire in 2017 on the basis of being the guy who saved the UK, trailing in […]
For several years now, Twitter has been an unmitigated force for evil – a barely-disguised attempt at mass social engineering on a scale unprecedented since the Propaganda Ministry of Joseph Goebbels, undertaken by an unelected, unaccountable global corporation (it doesn’t even have a published address in the UK, physical or digital, something I can’t believe […]
We’ve had no takers from any Nicola Sturgeon loyalists for this yet, so let’s narrow our focus a bit. The quote pictured below is an absolutely unequivocal statement, with no qualifiers or conditions, made during and with full knowledge of a major peak in the COVID-19 pandemic. The midpoint of the current Scottish Parliament is […]
