Top Secret Speech Leaked This blog has received a top-secret leak of Nicola Sturgeon’s forthcoming speech on IndyRef2. Here’s the draft: Journalists, and people called ‘Ruth’, ask me every day whether I will give up on a second independence referendum.

I’d like to give a simple, direct, once-and-for-all answer...http://serosedseriocat.blogspot.com.es/2017/06/top-secret-speech-leaked.html

The Rape of Logic The "rape clause" is abhorrent. It requires women claiming Child Benefit for a third or subsequent child to prove that the child was conceived by rape... It will be poor women who will suffer most... My blog:http://serosedseriocat.blogspot.com.es/2017/04/the-rape-of-logic.html
Prawn and ships

Confidence Trick Theresa May is a skilled politician. She knows how to win power, and to yield power.

She is confident that the Tories will win the next election, and the one after that. In those elections, Scotland is meaningless - its single Tory MP a toothless man in a beard. Labour too is meaningless, lost in its self-flagellation.

A House of CardboardHolyrood is a cardboard parliament. A single puff of wind from Westminster is enough to blow it over. Three stories evince its weakness:  Yesterday, Angus Robertson MP asked a key question: would decision making powers on agriculture and fisheries be returned to Scotland after Brexit? He said: "with Brexit ending the role of Brussels in these areas will all decisions about agriculture and fisheres be made at Holyrood, yes or no?"

What does racism and separatism look like? How would we know it if we saw it? What are its defining characteristics? Who are its advocates? Let’s see if we can find out. Racists definitely don’t like immigration. That’s a basic. They’ll try to terrify people with wildly exaggerated dog-whistle “warnings” about their country and their […]
Sneaking Out

Who do we really care about?

Family, friends, vulnerable people, children...?

Let's start with the children. The most vulnerable children. Kids without parents, living as refugees just across the 'hard border' that separates England from France....
