From SNP Media: The SNP has Boris Johnson and Keir Starmer are “treating Scots like fools” with their empty rhetoric on renewable energy – as Scotland suffers from the highest transmission charges in Europe under Westminster control. Alan Brown MP said the sky-high charges, imposed by the last Labour government in 2005 and maintained by the Tories for more than a decade, are the...

  The backlash against Boris Johnson’s refusal to recognise the support for a second independence referendum is growing. Even those who do not support independence are increasingly speaking out against any Tory bid to block the vote. Here are three voices who recently added their support to the arguments in favour of holding indyref2. 1: […]The post Three new voices add to...

They’ve climbed onto double-deckers buses with passengers inside, amongst traffic, but for the Mirror, they’re just ‘raucous’ or ‘boisterous’, and for the Mail and the Express, just ‘partying’. In June, the Scots fans, who did nothing like climbing onto buses but merely refused to socially distance, were, for the Express, ‘wreaking...

July 19th should be called "Capitalists Day". The day us poor folk are left exposed to a deadly virus just so fatcats can earn more money than they'll know what to do with.

When I first the voices on the short video showing a knife and machete attack on a 16 year-old, I detected an English accent. Only the Daily Record likewise commented: The group of youths, who appeared to have English accents, were caught on camera on Argyle Street in the city centre at 8.30pm on Thursday evening. BBC Scotland has ignored the report. This fits with their agenda to ignore anything...

I’m grateful to regular, Cameron Brodie, for spotting this. Researchers at the University of the West of Scotland have confirmed that Scotland’s drug problem is now almost entirely fed by supplies arriving from England and Northern Ireland. While the violence by young black males with clear English accents, last Thursday, may be unconnected, it may equally be an unusually public...

In a BBC Scotland report, not headlining the website and not yet featuring in TV broadcasts, the Accounts Commission finds major failings in Aberdeen Council where a coalition of Conservatives and Labour has conspired to keep the SNP out of power, placing unionist tribalism shamelessly before leftist, progressive policies. The BBC Scotland report, of course, keeps the political identity of the...

As a young man I was fascinated by film. I remember discussing one film, Empire; by Andy Warhol, at the film club. Empire was shot in the 60s, it’s a silent black and white film showing hours of unchanging footage of the Empire State building in slow motion. It has no characters, no narrative nor […]

The UK’s Australian trade deal announced yesterday is another clear indication that Scottish interests can only be served by independence. Scotland was not deemed worthy of consultation on any aspect of the deal and the very real concerns expressed north of the Border were completely ignored by Westminster. The Conservative Secretary of State for Scotland […]

********** Hilariously, the Scottish Tories in North Ayrshire, have demanded that they NOT be called the Scottish Tories, because they say it is derogatory and an insult. And the Provost has asked, nay ordered, the SNP to refrain from using the term. After raising a point of order in the meeting, Councillor Ferguson for the … Continue reading "RANDOM THOUGHTS"
