We saw a tweet from some Tory MP or MSP this morning urging voters to sign some fake “petition” or other bashing the SNP, and it rang a bell in our minds, so we popped over to the Conservative Party website where we found this: Despite referring to “a new poll today”, there’s no date […]

The Guardian has today published a whole series of attack piece articles on Julian Assange which plainly exult in the fact he has now been silenced by the cutting of his communication with the outside world. They also include outright lies such as this one by Dan Collyns: In fact Julian Assange was questioned for […]The post The Guardian Rejoices in the Silencing of Assange appeared first...

The devolved legislatures cannot block the bill but the need for their consent means that they have a considerable degree of leverage – much more so than if Theresa May had secured a landslide majority in the June election. It is likely the devolved nations will seek to exploit this leverage to the full.The post Can Scotland and Wales block the EU repeal bill? appeared first on Sceptical Scot.

We have reached a watershed for UK politics: Time for independence to catch the wave of change argues Gerry Hassan. These are bewildering and often disorientating times to live in. In recent weeks and months it has felt at times difficult to keep up with the speed of events – as history has been seemingly […]

So we’ve had some technical problems on the site in the last few weeks and we’re trying to get them all fixed. Worst of all was the site crashing but possibly second worst was no-one getting their email alerting them to a new post. Sorry about that. We’re trying to sack our hosts and have […]

THEY made oddest couple in international politics: the belligerent misogynist and the vicar’s daughter. Theresa May literally walking hand-in-hand with Donald Trump outside the White House was a spectacle of toe-curling embarrassment for most of us. It was like a zombie version of the Special Relationship. The joint press conference was excruciating. May donning a … Continue reading...

You could be forgiven for thinking the Scottish Budget negotiations have gone awry. The first attempt to gain parliamentary approval failed to gain a majority. A second attempt has now been held but when the media invite went out for…Read more →

On Sunday I was made aware of a tweet by Kevin Williamson who, as far as I know, still serves on the so-called ‘Advisory Board’ of Bella Caledonia. Williamson posted the following message on the social media platform. Look 4ward…

I am proud to call Chris Law a friend, and I am delighted that the ludicrous police investigation into him has now officially been closed. The rash of daft politically motivated investigations into SNP figures is a peculiar blight on the nation, and the extraordinary length of time the police have taken to examine some […]

Here’s the Conservative MP for Stratford-on-Avon 10 months ago: And this is him yesterday, reacting to the news that having been born in Iraq means he’s now banned from entering the USA. Because whether you’re Tory or Labour, the trouble with dog-whistling racists is that once you’ve started, you have very little control over where […]

Baghdad-born Tory MP Nadhim Zadawi has become the media poster boy for British opposition to Trump’s egregious immigration freeze, which May has eventually been forced into opposing against all her profound anti-immigrant instincts. Actually, if I ran a country I would be sorely tempted to ban Zadawi from it too. Founder of blatant Tory push-polling […]

The inhuman fiasco at American airports and the failure of a British Prime Minister to condemn it outright is another sign of how the governance of the UK is spiralling in unpredictable directions. Like it or not, Britain is now tied in the eyes of the world to the fantasy politics of Donald Trump having […]

From what I can gather, the Bella Caledonia editorial team still very much preach the gospel of "solidarity" between Yessers - which, as many of us have learnt the hard way, roughly translates as "when we criticise you, we're teachers, but when you criticise us, you're immature dividers".  I was treated to another depressing (and frankly quite upsetting) example of that maxim last night....

The Sunday Herald ran an extraordinary article on page 2 yesterday, and after we’d finished being startled by what nonsense it was, it set us wondering about why. The piece triggered a demented, vitriolic outburst on social media from the founder of a well-known Scottish website, furiously and bizarrely demanding apologies from a number of […]

So what are the Clinton gang doing while Trump introduces anti-Muslim immigration discrimination? Oh, they are pushing for war with Iran, which might give pause to some who think the world would have been less awful had Hillary won. Here is the front page of the resolution introduced into the House of Representatives by Democrat […]
