The women you mustn’t believe

It will come as little surprise to any observer of the Scottish media for the last decade that the trial of Alex Salmond is to continue indefinitely after the actual court case that cleared him of all charges. With very occasional honourable exceptions, including some from rather unexpected sources, the Scottish press has been – even […]
Coronavirus: Reporting Scotland see the facts but don't ask why deaths are running at half the level in Scottish hospitals
Talking Up Scotland

BBC Reporting Scotland showed the above graph last night. Any fool can see that the Scottish deaths are not soaring like the cases. BBC Newsnight showed the one below, without my addition of the Scottish death rate (red), and any fool can see that the UK deaths are soaring: Using a graph that shouts ‘WhyContinue reading "Coronavirus: Reporting Scotland see the facts but don't ask why...

This article is the only thing Wings is going to say about the COVID-19 crisis, because (a) we’re on holiday, (b) it has very little to do with Scottish politics, and (c) we’re not virologists and have no expertise to offer. But in so far as we have some sort of reach and to some […]

Covid-19 Data Comparisons – Wales, Scotland, England, Northern Ireland
MacAlba
...
Obviously Corona Virus is on everyone’s mind just now, as it is mine.  There are numbers everywhere, and to be honest, not many of them make much sense, and even worse for me as a Scot, the UK numbers make very little sense to me since we are a nation of 4 distinct countries. I… Read More Covid-19 Data Comparisons – Wales, Scotland, England, Northern Ireland

Lots of coronavirusy related news today. Like Charles Windsor, Boris Johnson has miraculously morphed into one of those high risk patients who qualify for a coronavirus test and has tested positive. To be fair, we always knew that Boris was one sick puppy, and anyway he was always going to qualify for a test on […]

J’Accuse
Craig Murray
...
A 22 person team from Police Scotland worked for over a year identifying and interviewing almost 400 hoped-for complainants and witnesses against Alex Salmond. This resulted in nil charges and nil witnesses. Nil. The accusations in court were all fabricated and presented on a government platter to the police by a two prong process. The […]The post J’Accuse appeared first on Craig...

Sensational Panelbase poll shows SNP have further increased their enormous lead over the Tories
Scot Goes Pop
...
A few people have mentioned over the last few days that they'd just taken part in a Scottish voting intention poll for Panelbase. My assumption was that it was probably a private poll that would never see the light of day, because I couldn't believe a newspaper would commission such a poll in the middle of an unprecedented global crisis, but amazingly it turned out to be for the Sunday Times. ...
Updated regulations for dog owners

We have a result. Following the plea on this blog yesterday for the needs of dogs who live in flats to be taken into account, this morning the Scottish Government issued updated regulations relating to those of us who own or are responsible for animals. The upshot is that it’s now accepted that taking a […]

The people you thought were awful selfish greedy bastards are far far worse than you had possibly imagined. Penne Pasta is overrated. We live in a virtually leaderless society. The politicians are useless, religious leaders are nowhere and the royal family are in hiding. Having ASDA in charge isn’t very inspiring. Some people matter more […]

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.
Alex Salmond and the future of Scottish politics
Scot Goes Pop
...
Alex Salmond is my biggest political hero.  I think I've previously recounted the story of how I was converted to the cause of independence about a billion years ago when I watched him one morning on an edition of Election Call with Nick Ross.  He spoke up for millions during the Iraq War, and of course was largely responsible for giving Scotland its first pro-independence government in...

Ann Widdicombe was trending on Twitter yesterday. She’s one of those people whose name you see trending on Twitter, and when you take a look there’s a mild feeling of disappointment when you discover that she’s not dead. Was that a cruel and heartless thing to say? Why yes, yes it was. But then Ann […]
Leadership, not management
Wee Ginger Dug

There’s a new Scottish opinion poll out today commissioned by the Sunday Times which must have come as a massive disappointment to the British nationalists who produce that newspaper. The Salmond trial has had precisely zero effect on Scottish voting intentions. Fieldwork for the poll was carried out between 24 and 26 March, after the […]
