Here’s Two I Did Earlier
Craig Murray
...
In the light of recent events, I thought I might revisit my appearances a few months ago on the Alex Salmond Show. In current circumstances people might have more time to watch.  It also helps explain why the state hates Alex Salmond. The establishment have tried to “get” Alex SaImond in three courts. The first […]The post Here’s Two I Did Earlier appeared first on Craig...

Scottish Greens
...
Rural economy secretary Fergus Ewing must face scrutiny for why he intervened to allow fox hunts to take place on public land, the Scottish Greens have said.The Ferret has reported documents released by Forestry and Land Scotland (FLS) which show the agency reversed a decision to keep foxhunts off its land near Inverness after “considerable” pressure from the minister.
Fourth poll puts SNP support above 50% and suggests mild coronavirus boost for independence
Talking Up Scotland
...
The Panelbase poll of 1023, 16+ adults, based on fieldwork on 24-26 March, reported today in the Sunday Times yesterday, is the fourth in short order, to place support for the SNP above 50% and collective support for pro-Indy parties into the mid 50s. On Holyrood voting intentions an overall SNP majority is predicted: Con […]

Here is the plain reality of the economic situation. The economy is going to be to one extent or another shutdown for months. We don’t know to what extent, and we don’t know how many months. But we know that the economy we have is sufficiently fragile that it can’t go on like that for […]The post Can’t Pay, Won’t Pay appeared first on Source.
No innocents! No heroes!

My views on the hounding of individuals by the media and those happy to let the gutter press lead them by the nose remain unaltered. I deplore the inhumanity of it more than I deplore Dr Calderwood's unforgivable but sadly very human folly.
The poisoned pens
Wings Over Scotland
...
Scotland’s media is still unable to contain its outpouring of bitter, resentful rage over Alex Salmond’s exoneration by a jury on trumped-up sexual assault charges. Flailing blindly in all directions it’s achieving little other than to embarrass itself, such as last night when Scotland On Sunday had to change its front page in a late […]
The Declaration of Arbroath, and the Way Forward Now
Craig Murray
...
This is my first ever attempt at a podcast. The family think it is hilariously boring, like a TV lecture from the 1950’s. I try to persuade them that being hilariously inept is vital to my charm, but that makes them laugh even more. It is a day late due to technical incompetence on my […]The post The Declaration of Arbroath, and the Way Forward Now appeared first on Craig Murray.
Ipsos-Mori poll suggests the public are aware that Johnson was too slow in ordering a lockdown
Scot Goes Pop
...
It's often said that leader ratings are more predictive of election results than voting intention numbers.  Given that governments almost always have sky-high approval figures in the middle of a major crisis, I wonder if it's also true that we need to look at other polling questions to get a more accurate sense of what the fallout for the current government might be in the longer run. ...
Coronavirus: 'None' of UK Government's 17.5m antibody tests work

NONE of the 17.5 million antibody tests ordered by the UK Government in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic works, it has been revealed.
New cases fall again
Talking Up Scotland
...
I’ve been listening to the First Minister and BBC reporters saying that the peak is some way off and that there is worse to come but I don’t understand why then the number of new cases is on a downward trend. I know little of epidemiology but I just don’t see it. I do know […]
Adding insult to injury as poll calls for Boris to go and ignores Scottish media campaign against Dr Calderwood
Talking Up Scotland
...
This YouMug poll for the Talking-up Scotland Collective sampled 4070 varied followers to establish the level of support for key figures in the coronavirus outbreak. Just over 10% responded to a task that might have taken them all of 10 seconds. Heartlessly, we feel, they went for Boris with 81.3% calling for his head even […]
Because we can
Peter Bell
...
The pursuit of Dr Calderwood played out as such pursuits so often do, with the prey being brought down and savaged. Temporarily sated, the packed mills around the corpse savouring what it assumes to be its power mindlessly unaware that it was merely the instrument of forces beyond its ken.
Only 2 deaths today and nobody can bear to say it
Talking Up Scotland
...
Above, the Scotsman, BBC Scotland and the Herald are all unable to write the headline because only 2 were recorded as dying in the last 24 hours. When it was 46 it was splattered everywhere across the Scottish and UK media AND Nicola Sturgeon’ face was always there beside the number. Where is she today? […]
SNP aide’s ‘hypocrisy’ contrasted with Royal Couple’s ‘charitable work’ in Scottish Highlands.
Talking Up Scotland
...
Monica Lennon, Willie Rennie, Murdo Fraser and assorted wee media jackals are salivating at the prospect of collateral damage to the First Minister and the SNP by taking down a hard-working civil servant. Remind me of what they said when an already-diseased Prince and his retinue of bottom-wipers were flown into Balmoral, from whichever of […]
Life after Covid-19

There has been an unmistakably concerted effort to take Alex Salmond out of the political equation. A project which goes far beyond the bounds of even the most Machiavellian of political machinations.
Just a rumour but one worth repeating as BBC Scotland strive for higher deaths by consulting NHS England
Talking Up Scotland
...
Only suspicion and vague ‘linking’ but clearly a story, picked up from the Sun newspaper, that BBC Scotland want to dwell upon and hammer into the collective consciousness. No evidence, no test results and so the deaths in a Scottish care home were not recorded as covid-19 deaths. Clearly disappointed, BBC Scotland reported what the […]
The wrong voters

No question about the timing or magnitude of the response Covid-19 makes any sense because there is only one sensible answer. The response had to be instant and total.
Becoming exercised

Yeah, we know we said we weren’t going to say anything else about the COVID-19 crisis, but sometimes there’s just too much stupid going around to stay silent. A disturbing number of people appear to have interpreted the undoubted seriousness of the pandemic to mean that nobody is ever allowed to be even slightly happy […]
