By Russell Bruce On 3rd February 1960 Harold Macmillan gave his famous Wind of Change speech. This signalled final recognition that Britain’s place and influence in the world had changed. The wind had been blawing for several decades and all Supermac, as Macmillan was labelled by a friendly media, was doing was facing up to […]The post Wind of change blowing backwards through Britain...

Duolingo is the best-known and most effective language-learning site on the internet.  I mentioned a few hours ago on Twitter how frustrating it is that it's possible to learn two fictional languages on the site (Klingon from Star Trek and High Valyrian from Game of Thrones) but it's not yet possible to learn Scottish Gaelic.  Just to rub salt into the wound, both Welsh and Irish are on...

I really cannot begin to fathom how stupid you would have to be to believe that Iran would attack a Japanese oil tanker at the very moment that the Japanese Prime Minister was sitting down to friendly, US-disapproved talks in Tehran on economic cooperation that can help Iran survive the effects of US economic sanctions.

The above story appeared on the BBC UK website but not on the BBC Scotland website. It absolutely was not mentioned on Reporting Scotland.  I’m sure you see why it just wouldn’t appeal to the editorial team at Pacific Quay.… Continue reading →

Shocking! It really shouldn't be a surprise and it IS disturbing. Yessers already know what the British Nationalists represent but here they are in all their disgusting glory for EVERYONE to see. When someone tells you both sides were to blame for the riots in George Square in 2014, just send them the link to this....

Ann Widdecombe, the comedy turn on Strictly Come Dancing and the Brexit Party, was interviewed on Sky News on Sunday morning. In the absence of any manifesto or policies from the Brexit Party, all we have to go on are the pronouncements of party worthies like Anne. And it didn’t make for inspiring listening. Ann […]

Could you possibly explain why you are using taxpayers’ money to pay Twitter to promote your “precious” union? You really would have thought, wouldn’t you, that if it was THAT good, you wouldn’t have to pay people to promote it? Also, given that you are supposedly Scotland’s man in the government in England, could you … Continue reading "DEAR MR MUNDEL"

Scotland and England share a Union, an island and a few other things however many more things divide us than unite us, that is the reality. We have over centuries been deluged with propaganda trying to tell us that we Scots and the English are really the same people.

So there you have it. You took what you thought was the sensible reasonable approach, and no one can criticise you for that.   The grey men in suits of Westminster, the Prime Minister of the day, and former Prime Ministers and Chancellors from Scotland pleaded with you. ‘We love you Scotland, you make our […]

Conan sent this (for which, thanks). Every time I’ve been on any of these AUOB marches the atmosphere has been so friendly. Marchers chat, laugh, share stories, and are polite and nice to each other.
