For the avoidance of any doubt, this site does not believe that Scotland’s second most senior judge, Lady Leeona Dorrian, is corrupt. It does not believe that she is acting at the behest of the Scottish Government or the First Minister, even though Lady Dorrian is known to wish to succeed Lord Carloway as the […]
Please note the below press release regarding the impending incarceration of former UK Ambassador Craig Murray [29/07/2021; 15:52 pm; Edinburgh] Legal precedent will be set tomorrow as Craig Murray will be the first person to be imprisoned on the charge of jigsaw identification in the UK, and indeed in the entire world. Scotland’s second most […]
All recorded indyref polling on the standard question, from here and here. The picture (click to enlarge) tells the story more eloquently than we could.
We already wrote this, so we might as well put it up here for the 99.99% of Scots who don’t read the comments on David Leask’s columns for the Herald. Scotland’s worst and most pathologically insecure journalist was punting one of his favourite hobby-horses yesterday, namely that it’s a “nationalist myth” that Scotland got poorer after […]
Wings has been informed by a reliable source that Police Scotland have now progressed their inquiry into the SNP’s “missing” £600,000 fundraiser money from an “assessment” to a formal investigation. We gather an official statement will be forthcoming shortly. We look forward to the outcome.
Holiday Boy is still “resting”, so here’s a laugh from nearly six years ago. Hear the bang? See the spark? No, us either.
Alert readers will have noticed that our semi-regular crayonsmith Slacky The Holiday Boy is off again this week (and indeed next week), so as a special emergency service we bring you something almost as funny, albeit in a rather darker vein than usual. The punchline, of course, is the last sentence of paragraph 9.
Ten years ago this month I was in a pub called The Porter in Bath with my girlfriend and her family, buying everyone whiskies and gabbling deliriously (I’d been up for over 40 hours at that point) about the significance of what had just happened. Alex Salmond’s SNP had just broken the Scottish electoral system, winning […]
The election’s over and the votes have been counted. It wasn’t to be for Alba this time, but the fight goes on. Whilst there’s disappointment, there’s also vindication. SNP list votes were even greater than in 2016 and yet produced even fewer list MSPs. There’s an irony in the SNP suffering from unionist tactical voting, having […]
Misogynist racist midget Patrick Harvie is furious this week, which is always nice. It seems he really doesn’t like it up ‘im. Because the reason for his rage is that he feels the Scottish Greens were denied two extra seats at last week’s election by confusion over a party called Independent Green Voice. The party, […]
Craig Murray was today sentenced to eight months in prison for the crime of “jigsaw identification” of one or more of the complainers in the trial of Alex Salmond. We believe he is the first person ever to be convicted of this extremely vaguely-defined crime, and certainly the first ever sentenced to imprisonment. In her […]
