EU Diplomats reveal Boris Johnson said ‘f**k business’ over Brexit fears

Full story below, and If this isn’t enough to make the wealthy in Scotland and around the UK re-think Brexit, I don’t know what will. This an article by National Newsdesk 

It is damning as it is provocative towards the business structure of both Scotland and the UK as a whole. The SNP know he said it, Europe knows he said it, Ireland knows he said it, and they are about to show this Tory party what power WE DO HAVE. Three blogs ago I decided to come back to this story because I was told ‘Now is the time Shaun’ – The very next day the SNP Members in Westminster walked out in what I hear was a ‘Scripted’ act that was known by more than 1 side. The speaker broke one huge rule in denying SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford a sit in private to debate this awful power grab. The speaker knew the rules, watch the video again and you will see him being told what to do. This (ALLEGEDLY) was scripted. I think the British Political Structure knows the Union is in dissolve mode and they are trying to blame everyone for the coming collapse. Brexit, if you didn’t already know is SUICIDE for the UK Economy, Theresa May knows it, Labour know it, Tory party members alike know it, and you can bet your last £1 the SNP were PRAYING the speaker followed through on ejecting Mr Blackford from the chamber for asking for a DEMOCRATIC right to speak in private about the power grab. The video is below, it is ILLEGAL, and everyone knows. Me writing about this the day before was on ASSURED words from 3 sources that ‘There is an agreement in place, over disagreement’

Now is our time Scotland, brace for impact, the apron wearers will take to the streets, we MIGHT have to fight them, but it’s a fight we must take on. This isn’t speculation, this is based on the 2014 NO VOTE and these same people taking to the streets in TRIUMPH by beating up their own. Scottish Nationals beaten in the streets by British National Neanderthals. I have had the threats from these people, and I do expect them to come again. Know my back is covered here. I am not speculating, I am sharing what YOU ALREADY KNOW, they know, Europe knows. The Union is falling. Freedom is a matter of time, but it will come at a Butchers Shop cost. Main Stream Media people are being SHUT UP as I shared yesterday, read it again if you have not. Brexit means England will stand alone, Ireland will be united and Scotland will be a nation again. Silence of Scottish voices won’t last long, and FINALLY, yet sadly, money losses will probably be what frees Scotland from this Capitalistic Tory Government and Boris Johnson saying what we already know or thought. This time, we have people OUTSIDE Scotland ready to back us. This will get messy, but hold Scotland…HOLD!!

BORIS Johnson is caught up in yet another diplomatic scandal, after he was reported to have said “fuck business” when asked about fears over Brexit.

EU diplomats have expressed their shock and disgust at the comments, which they say came during a Foreign Office reception last week celebrating the Queen‘s Birthday.

Asked about the fears business leaders had over Brexit, Johnson replied: “Fuck business.”

Johnson, who was speaking to Rudolf Huygelen, Belgium’s ambassador to the EU, was overheard saying they would fight Theresa May‘s soft Brexit “and win”.

He also said the UK was as divided as it had been since the English Civil War.

Sources close to Johnson are reported to have disputed the claim he swore, and said he was attacking “vested interests” of groups like the Confederation of British Industry.

Speaking to the Telegraph, an EU diplomat said: “It is shocking for him declare he would take the battle directly to Theresa May and speaking so openly about it. He wasn’t hiding his intentions at all.

“I was shocked by how crude and crass he was, as if he didn’t care for the consequences and especially not the economic consequences of Brexit.”

The paper reported that another, when presented with the comments, simply replied: “Jesus Christ.”

SNP MP Ivan McKee said: “These reported comments tell you all you need to know about Boris Johnson and his ilk within the Tory party. It’s ego and self-interest first, while people’s jobs and livelihoods are on the line.

“A Foreign Secretary with this level of contempt for Scottish business is clearly unfit for the job.

“Sadly this is becoming par for the course for the Tories, who think they can do what they want to Scotland and get away with it.

“The SNP will stand firm in seeking to protect people’s livelihoods from a hard Brexit, and continue to make the case for Scotland remaining within the Single Market and Customs Union. We won’t roll over and let the Tories tank our economy.

“Nor will we stand idly by as they use Brexit as a cover to grab powers from our Scottish Parliament and undermine devolution.”

It comes as Johnson urges the Prime Minister to deliver a “full British Brexit” as Cabinet colleagues warn the UK is able to walk away without a deal.

International Trade Secretary Liam Fox said the UK was not “bluffing” about being prepared to walk away from talks with Brussels, and Brexit Secretary David Davis said there is “lots going on” to prepare in case negotiations collapse.

Meanwhile, Foreign Secretary Johnson said people would not tolerate a “bog roll Brexit” that was “soft, yielding and seemingly infinitely long”.

Their remarks were published on Saturday, the second anniversary of 2016’s EU referendum. Thousands of pro-EU marchers have begun a walk from Pall Mall to Parliament to demand a referendum on the terms of Brexit two years on from the vote.

The ministers’ comments prompted criticism from Siemens UK chief executive Juergen Maier, who said they were “incredibly unhelpful” and said it was time to work for a more pragmatic deal with the EU.

He told BBC Radio 4’s Today that the firm wanted a soft Brexit with “minimum friction”, saying the Government had presided over “two years of not having achieved what we were promised, which is that this was all going to be easy”.

He said: “I think the realities are setting in and I think it is time to get away from slogans, ‘full British Brexit’, ‘going into combat with Europe’.

“It’s all incredibly unhelpful and what we need to do now is to get closer with our European partners and work out what a realistic, pragmatic Brexit is that works for both sides, the EU and ourselves.”

Meanwhile, research by the Centre for European Reform (CER) think tank indicated Brexit had already made the UK economy 2.1% weaker than it would have been if voters had decided to stay in the EU.

Dr Fox said it is “essential” the EU “understands… and believes” the Prime Minister’s assertion that no deal would be better than a bad deal.

He said the threat had “added credibility because if we were to leave, the economic impact on a number of European countries would be severe”.

“I think our negotiating partners would not be wise if they believed that the Prime Minister was bluffing,” he said.

Davis said that Britain was “able to leave without a deal”.

“We don’t want to do that, never have. The best option is leaving with a good deal but you’ve got to be able to walk away from the table,” he said.

Rejecting claims the Government has failed to make adequate preparations for a no-deal Brexit, he told the paper: “There’s lots going on, we haven’t made it public for very simple reasons.

“This is a careful process, it is not designed to scare the horses to worry people, it is designed to get the work done.”

The Brexit Secretary cited planning on migration matters and health standards, as well as treatment available to Britons in Europe.

“Work is going on all these things for both the negotiated outcome and if something goes wrong.”

Their comments in interviews to mark two years since the British people voted to leave the European Union were made before Airbus warned it could be forced to pull out of the UK if there was a “no deal” Brexit.

Katherine Bennett, Airbus’s senior vice president in the UK, said: “We don’t deal in idle threats. We seriously believe a no-deal Brexit would be catastrophic.”

Writing in the Sun, Johnson said the public were keen to get on with breaking away from Brussels.

“Across the country I find people who – whatever they voted two years ago – just want us to get on and do it,” he said.

“They don’t want a half-hearted Brexit. They don’t want some sort of hopeless compromise, some perpetual pushme-pullyou arrangement in which we stay half-in and half-out in a political no man’s land – with no more ministers round the table in Brussels and yet forced to obey EU laws.

“They don’t want some bog roll Brexit, soft, yielding and seemingly infinitely long.

“They want this Government to fulfil the mandate of the people and deliver a full British Brexit.”

But organisers of the People’s Vote march expect tens of thousands of people to show their support for a referendum on the final Brexit outcome.

Marchers will descend on Parliament Square, where speakers will include LibDem leader Sir Vince Cable, Tory former minister Anna Soubry, Labour’s David Lammy and Green co-leader Caroline Lucas.

Cable is expected to say Brexit is not a “done deal” or inevitable and can be stopped.

“Parliament is fiddling at the margins while the country slowly burns,” he is expected to warn as he calls on the Government to vote on the deal, or no deal, with the option of staying in the EU.

The CER estimate of a 2.1% smaller economy than if the UK had voted to remain in the EU is equivalent to a knock-on hit of £23 billion a year to the public finances, some £440 million a week.

CER deputy director John Springford said: “Two years on from the referendum, we now know that the Brexit vote has seriously damaged the economy.”

THIS IS THE NAIL IN THE COFFIN SURELY!!!

Brexit means England will stand alone, Ireland will be united and Scotland will be a nation again

Fidelma Cook.

I am sharing this as many can’t read from the source:

http://www.heraldscotland.com/

NOT that long ago I wrote about living with a constant low-lying swirl of rage and irritability. It was, of course, to do with Brexit and, if anything, it has got worse, becoming a silent scream of impotent angst.

You may say, rightly, that I have too much time on my hands to scour the internet, read all the papers, tune in to Parliament live, and you’re probably quite right.

Two English friends, in favour of Brexit although living in France, were here the other day and, in different circumstances, it could have come to blows.

I am beyond rational discussion in the face of ignorance, for that is what I hear when confronted with tired cliches, demolished week after week.

In fact I am beyond stating a case for staying within the EU; if anyone cannot see beyond the charlatans peddling a right wing coup, then hell mend them.

Give me one, just one, positive case for leaving the EU and I will listen to you. Hello? Anyone there? No, because there isn’t one.

I am beyond being calm, measured, understanding. I have no empathy with those who are set on a course to destroy their own country in the ludicrous terms of ‘sovereignty, taking back control, will of the people.’

Usually when on a rant, I semi-apologise that I am viewing all through a telescope from another country.

And it’s true, as I’ve said time after time; I’m no longer linked into the nuances, the pub talk, the flow of the country I left behind.

I’m not in tune, or discussion, with the many people I knew or met daily or listened to in overheard chats, overheated arguments.

I admit I sit, a silent watcher, crouched over a Mac, trying to make sense and gather thoughts via social media and websites.

But today I’m not apologising any more. Life ‘back there’ doesn’t cease because one lives in La France Profonde. If anything it intensifies.

Particularly when Brexit is about to destroy so many lives in this/your country, and the one that is mine now for the immigrants who have made it so.

Distance, the telescope, whatever, actually casts the cold eye and makes one sit back in shock at all that is taking place.

Distance makes me appalled and saddened, deeply saddened, at a Press that is often partisan, not forensically detached.

Distance makes me pick over every argument and find the Brexiteers not only wanting, but shameless in their headlong rush to create a lie.

This week I watched live as Parliament ‘debated’ the amendments sent back from the Lords. Debated? Hardly, with two days to do so.

Perhaps after all my years here I have become a little foreign – a little questioning in my appreciation of democracy in action.

During the first devolution debate I reported for the BBC from the Palace of Westminster. That is a tale to be told for another day, but let me say I was shocked and often disgusted by all I witnessed there.

When, with instinctive journalistic verve I wanted to report certain facts, I was warned off in no uncertain terms. Told that was how things were.

And told that I couldn’t expect airtime and not to be so naïve about life in the House.

A touch enthralled about being in the centre of power I acquiesced and convinced myself that my nightly Reporting Scotland reports were honest at least. And they were.

I closed my eyes to the rest.

So, I was not surprised in a way to watch the jeering and hissing over the amendments that came before the House last week.

That’s what they do, although, since the introduction of cameras, they have become a touch more circumspect.

And then, we had the non-discussion of Scotland’s devolved powers and an arrogance and disdain that led to a walkout.

I have said, many times, in this column that I do not feel it right to discuss Scottish politics.

But there comes a moment.

I found the disrespect in the House towards Scotland and its representatives beyond all acceptable behaviour. And, like many commentators I believe that was the day the fight for independence took a giant leap forward.

On display was all the contempt that England has shown over and over again to its neighbours. Some of the statements made about Ireland and its border issue have been breathtaking in the ignorance and insensitivity of those making them.

By the end of this debacle England will stand alone, Ireland will be united and Scotland will be a nation again.

I hold no political allegiances, have never and will never take membership in any party, but were I in Scotland and asked to vote in an independence referendum, I would not hesitate.

While the English Government peddles hate and closed doors, all I see coming from Scotland is inclusion and social care.

I see a country looking to a future, a future in Europe, not a past founded on race memories of a colonial shame.

And I would say cut yourself loose – run for the hills while you can. The ship is sinking but you don’t have to go down with it.

The time has come

An Independent Scotland is happening – SNP Haters, Freedom Haters – Deal With It!!

I made a decision about 2 years ago to stop blogging about a free Scotland, because the timing was not right, the landscape was not aligned to its values, and the EGO of people was making me tear my hair out. Only recently I had ANOTHER argument with a Scottish Freedom Fighter who was EGO. He took to the stage in Glasgow during the march and spoke; he had his stage, and presumed he was important. HE IS IMPORTANT, but he is no more or less important than you or I who also want a Free Scotland. We must be one, and I can say with hand on heart “A FREE SCOTLAND IS GOING TO HAPPEN AS I PREDICTED” Scotland will be free and Independent by the year 2020, you can take that to the bank, in-fact you can take it to the newly formed Scottish Bank started by the SNP. One of my last blogs I thought the year 2020 would be our Freedom year, and then I doubted, now I KNOW it is coming. A reminder before you read the rest below

June 28th 2015: #IndyRef2 – 2020 ‘Vision#ShaunyNews Copyright ©

Today the stars have aligned, the motion of a forward together Scotland is visible and there for all to see. There will be no Rape Clause in Scotland. Our amazing Scottish National Health System is untouchable. Nobody in Scotland will pay the Bedroom Tax. Carers will get more money; Disabled people will be treated fairly with honesty there if applicable. Tuition fees remain free and they are to go up. So to all you Scottish people who hate the SNP, I have some Questions:

  1. Do you or anyone you know in Scotland pay the Bedroom Tax
  2. Do you or anyone you know in Scotland pay for Prescriptions
  3. Do you or anyone you know in Scotland pay for Education?

There are many things Scottish born people who dislike the SNP take. Yeah they take the freebies and hate Scotland at the same time. Do you know freeloading Scottish people? Sad pathetic selfish people who take all the free things Scotland gives yet give us History lessons as to why they don’t like the SNP. We must with a peaceful mind point out all those in Scotland who take the freebies and ask “Then why do you hate being Scottish, why do you hate the SNP”


Scotland is standing up, the marches are getting bigger, we no longer need the MSM to show us what we already know, we have woken up, we have stood up, we have became less selfish and we are becoming a better Scotland while the SNP and Scottish Government prepare our amazing Scotland for Independence. Make no mistake, behind the scenes the SNP along with others is setting up the framework for an Independent Scotland ready to trade GLOBALLY! Forget Europe, Scotland can and will trade globally. Many see Europe as a means to hate a Free Scotland with comments like “Why trade being owned by Westminster for being owned by Europe” – Yeah! This confuses me too.

This is our time

This is our moment

This is our land

The time is now

We are finally ready to be free, and we will be.

I said I would not write about Independence till I could see it happening. Friends and family who read this, TRUST ME, this is happening. Freedom is coming to Scotland, and there isn’t a thing Westminster can do. We are too strong now, we have had enough of Austerity, we have argued with each other over trivial points to the stage we have stopped. We are finally ready to go forward into the WORLD and within Europe with the tools we need.

Get Ready Scotland. It is coming faster than most could ever believe

Shaun

COULD YOU SURVIVE IN A SCOTLAND WITHOUT THE SNP PAYING YOUR WAY?

If you read this, research it’s truth and STILL don’t like the SNP, I can only say “You are selfish and/or scared” EVERYTHING above is what the SNP Government provides for EVERY Scottish person. So next time you get paid, please look at the list above and TRY and understand how a Devolved Scotland is helping your bank account. So when you vote Tory or Blue Labour, understand the SNP are financially helping you, holding you up and supporting you. The lies will be believed, people will say things like “THE SNP SIDES WITH NAZI GERMANY IN THE 1930” as a pathetic time travelling ruse to make you dislike the SNP. Also Labour canvassers are TODAY telling people in Motherwell, pensioners in Motherwell that “If you vote SNP you WILL lose your Free bus pass” This is a Lie! This is one of many lies that the old might fall for again.

Forget the Unionist and Loyalist hater, they are gone and will vote against the SNP out of racist and sectarian thoughts filled with hate and blind love of all things Royal and Tory. I say again ‘NOT TILL FISCAL TROUBLES HIT YOUR POCKET WILL YOU CARE” and “NOT TILL ILLNESS OR DISABILTY HIT YOU OR LOVED ONES WILL YOU UNDERSTAND BEING IN SCOTLAND WITH THE SNP WILL HELP YOU”.

Who in Scotland can deny the truth of the list above? Do some research and do the right thing for SCOTLAND! Not your bank account or your faith in anything outside your own life. I know some who hate the SNP and tell lies, I know people who tell me “Shaun, Foodbanks don’t exist, it’s a lie” Some believe it to be true, some just don’t see suffering. Trust me; if the SNP scrapped all the fiscal help to ALL PEOPLE LIVING IN Scotland, people would change their tune. I am wasting my time here, but the list above, seriously read it and ask “Where do they help me” and also “If all this help from the SNP stopped, would it affect me” Also leave you with a document I was sent today by a friend. Take it as you see it, or ignore it blindly, selfishly or with hate. I want Scotland free for all our kids, for Scotland in 100 years from now when we are all dead. What about you? Even forget the SNP if you must and just think ‘What would a free Scotland be’ – And people are STILL falling for the Tory/Labour and Media lies 😦 Tragic it is

IMAGINE THE POWER OF A FREE SCOTLAND WHEN WE SEE CLEARLY HOW EVERY SCOTTISH PERSON IS HELPED!!

Learn from the past Scotland:

Hospital Parking: NHS Lothian drop planned increase amid staff protests – LETS GET THEM SCRAPPED!

Edinburgh Royal Infirmary

All NHS Scotland staff have to pay to park; to work I had to go to the Royal Infirmary (Little France, Edinbugh) at about 3AM last month. I was sitting talking to the reception woman, the staff and Drs about how there was no-where to park for Disabled drivers. Then they told me, Drs too, “We have to pay £7 to park our cars, a day to work here” I kind of smiled thinking they were making it up, then the reception woman said “Shaun, seriously, I pay nearly £50 a WEEK, £200 a MONTH to work here” And she looked really upset!! Then I asked the Dr “Do you pay too?” He replied “Yeah Shaun” I then said “But you save people’s lives!?” I couldn’t believe NHS Staff were paying to help people like you and I and millions more people live better, saving lives every day and paying to do so. So this is a good step this story below in the right direction, BUT LETS KEEP THE PRESSURE ON, I signed the petition to help this same as many, let’s make it so STAFF PARK FREE!! It tells us the SNP are doing EVERYTHING THEY CAN to deliver small details that many won’t notice. So next time ANYONE is in a Hospital, and any of us hear people moaning “I have been here nearly a half hour waiting”..WE SHOULD ALL EXPLAIN THIS STORY TO THEM, No voters, YOU FUCKING CAUSED THIS SHIT. And this is 1 small story from many THAT THE SNP ARE TRYING TO FIX AND ARE FIXING. Oh this shit boils ma blood peeps. Who the FUCK!! Thinks we are ‘Better Together’. These English Royal Servants be them Tory or Labour who are Scottish born, are the EXACT same as the people who grassed William Wallace in exchange for land!! AND THEIR FAMILIES STILL OWN IN SCOTLAND TODAY!! If you voted no, understand the small detail AND STOP BEING SELFISH. I want a better Scotland for you, for our kids, for our future! These are the charges at present for being ill, even having a baby, dying, rushed to hospital, having to visit people in hospital. KNOW THE STAFF HELPING YOU ALL THE WAY PAY WAY MORE, AND THEY HELP YOU AND I. Lets up the game Scotland and drop these ERI charges 1st for the staff, 2nd for being ill. We may get everything free in Scottish Healthcare, but charging staff to save lives? Come on!! Who thinks we are better together? If anyone reading this thinks we are better together, DO NOT SAY IT TO MY FACE! (Thank you 1 person for helping me build this blog)

Parking is free at all our sites with the exception of the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.  These are as follows:

  • 0-1 hour £1.30
  • 1-2 hours £2.30
  • 2-3 hours £3.30
  • 3-4 hours £4.30
  • 4-5 hours £5.30
  • 5-6 hours £6.50
  • Over 6 hours £7.00
  • Part day thereafter £7.00 < All staff pay this!

Via: http://www.edinburghnews.scotsman.com/

Car parking charges at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary will remain frozen after NHS Lothian dropped plans to increase them amid staff protests.One of the proposed increases would have seen hospital staff being charged £15 for parking in the visitors and patients car parks – a staggering 114 per cent increase from the current £7 a day tariff.
The Evening News told last week how staff were planning to boycott shops and catering facilities at the flagship hospital in a bid to overturn the planned increases which were to take effect from August. Jim Crombie, Deputy Chief Executive, NHS Lothian said: “We have discussed with staff the proposal to increase parking charges and we have listened to the concerns they have raised. We have fed this back to our private sector partners and have agreed that charges will remain at the current level for this financial year.
“We understand the impact that travel to and from work can have on staff but also the frustration patients and visitors experience when trying to park to attend an appointment or visit a patient. We will use the review to explore these issues in detail.” NHS Lothian does not own or operate the car park at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh. The charges for the car park are set by Consort Healthcare in line with the PFI agreement.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon had previously said she thought the proposed charges were not “fair”. Lothian Tory MSP Miles Briggs, who raised the matter with the First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, at First Minister’s Questions said: “This is very welcome news for all the staff, patients and visitors who use the RIE car parks.
“The Evening News is to be congratulated for leading the campaign against the price hikes and as a Lothian MSP who has also been trying to fight these increases I am delighted that I have been able to work alongside the Evening News and constituents who have collected thousands of signatures in online petitions and have successfully forced a u-turn from NHS Lothian.
“Although people will be relieved, NHS Lothian have suggested that the charges will only not be increased this financial year for people who use the car parks. It would be totally unacceptable if we were to face an annual battle against draconian and unacceptable parking charge increases and therefore I will be continuing to urge SNP Ministers and NHS Lothian to work to develop a long term solution that provides affordable parking for staff and patients and increases the capacity of the car parks at the RIE.”

The SNP could enact ‘Unilateral Declaration of Independence’

unnamed

I am NOT 😀 going to start blogging again, especially about this. I left Facebook because it is pointless, but also I seen or was told some groups ‘Allegedly’ like Scot to Scot will rather keep Scottish people arguing with each other ON THE INTERNET ONLY. Nicola has hinted a Hundred times “I will do whatever it takes to protect Scotland, her people and our shared interests” I believe UDI is about to be at least said as a threat, hopefully getting everyone outside Glasgow onto the streets, like Glasgow does. Where I am in Edinburgh, well we don’t become as visible in numbers anywhere apart from the internet as much as we should as capital city of Scotland, same with other cities. Too many egotistical people would rather keep their silly little online sites and groups than see Scotland free, some ‘might’ be scared to see the Unionist Work they do wasted or some might not like themselves to become totally irrelevant, like I am in the grand scheme of things. Not what ‘Freedom’ implies right?, but we do need an online presence, sadly we have over 500 sites and groups at odds with each other, arguing rather than becoming 1, PATHETIC!!. There are some good groups, granted, yes. But we need to get off the stupid internet and show the World we are there. I always thought the Scottish people would free Scotland, did we by voting @Britex for remaining in Europe? All that aside, I think this could get messy, but Scotland is about to try and walk. Who in Scotland can leave the internet (As many others and myself did) and actually support our freedom cause by GRINDING SCOTLAND TO A HAULT? Because we would free ourselves if we did this. We CAN free Scotland in 1 year!! It is so easy -Yet many will imply ‘IMPOSSIBLE < You can click that/ Also rearch #Iceland #RoleModels

Who will run to freedom?

Who will run to freedom?

imagesTHE SNP is demanding that the UK Government launch an urgent economic stimulus package to deal with the shockwaves of the Brexit vote. The party’s Westminster Treasury spokesman Stewart Hosie will insist that Chancellor Philip Hammond immediately detail the measures he will take to rebuild confidence in the economy.

Speaking exclusively to the Sunday Herald he said: “It is clear we cannot wait until his autumn statement to hear what he is planning – he needs to send a signal now that he will get the economy moving by ending the Tory fixation with cuts and austerity.”

Nicola Sturgeon’s Holyrood Government is adding to the pressure on the beleaguered chancellor to come up with positive measures to bolster the economy. She has already said that Scotland’s need to be “protected in the uncertain period that lies ahead”.

A spokesperson said, “The Scottish Government welcomes the stimulus package announced by the Bank of England to help support the economy through these times of heightened economic uncertainty.” Adding that, “it is now time for the UK to follow suit and provide the economic stimulus the economy requires and to provide certainty over future funding in order to enable the Scottish Government to provide full support to our economy.

“The Scottish Government and Scottish Parliament urgently need clarity on the details of the Autumn Statement to be able to plan, publish and scrutinise a budget for 2017-18. That is why the Finance Secretary Derek Mackay has written to the Chancellor calling on him to clarify his approach to the public finances to reduce uncertainty and bring further stability to the economy.”

Hosie’s backing for an “economic stimulus to avoid the negative impacts of the Brexit result” came as the Scottish Government also faced calls to launch a long-term industrial strategy to prevent mass job cuts and protect the living standards of workers. The pro-independence Scottish Greens, trade union leaders and Labour politicians all called for the Scottish Parliament to speak with one voice to protect the economy from the fallout of the Brexit process.

Troo Radio just shared a video with me and it’s pretty amazing to be fair, this is the Facebook page for Troo Radio. This is Troo Radio on You Tube and this is Troo Radio Twitter here. I believe some were born to lead and some were born to be led, something my young mind understood and as a middle aged adult now, something I know is true, very true, or Troo even 😀 I wish I had the courage or ability to stand up and make 5 Million people listen or make them at least try and listen. When I did football, leading people into battle was very easy as part of a team of people wanting the same thing, when I was a DJ the ability to host a party for 200/300 people, maybe more came easy to me. But then I lost my voice and my reasons due to my Disabilities here. Now I am in more pain but I am FORICING myself to live in small moments, not in bed, not in my Gym sofa either every day, I got tired of repetition but now repetition is my every day, I wake up and know hell is coming, the pain is coming, I got tired of being silent, but the fight is always going to be me against my disabilities, but I am now in charge of that to a certain degree. Sure some days I am in bed crying and screaming and the medication is so strong it knocks me out in the end, but some days I am up and singing, soon I start Drama class as I want to see if I can act, to invoke emotions from my story. We all have a story, we have bad and good stories, so in the end we have two very simple choices, I think so anyway. They are to stand up for what we believe in, or lay down and let what we don’t believe, control us. I am very fortunate in terms of the support I have around me, without them I would be dead, that is just a fact. But I love to be inspired because it teaches you how to inspire others. I don’t think the person who sent me this song was ego or wanting hits on any page, I really do think they wanted to lead, to show and discuss and invoke emotion. This song sure did that, no argument, 1 Minute 40 seconds into this video is where our Freedom could arrive from. This is a song like what half of my being is, my Irish side, it’s a Scottish Rebel song, sung in peace, for peace. I am a freedom fighter, but like other freedom fighters we can also be called extremists. But it can be said “One persons terrorist is another persons freedom fighter” #ScotlandTillJudgement

EU Referendum – Did you get this in the post today? Sturgeon & Cameron Videos #UDI?

20160510_112357Nicola Sturgeon and Cameron views in video below, Nicola mentions NEW REFERENDUM here. Just this second, alright I lied, 10 minutes ago; we got this through the letter box. Reasons we should stay in Europe with Auld Liz’s name on it. Cameron wants to stay in Europe although he has changed his mind like the Scottish weather. But Cameron has many in his party wanting to remain, Boris Johnson being one from the top of my mind. If Scotland vote to stay in but IF England, Wales and Northern Ireland vote to leave the European Union am I correct in thinking there is something in our new devolved powers that suggests if, as a devolved nation we vote to stay in the EU, the SNP could enact Unilateral Declaration of Independence? Thoughts? And spread this around please, all pages are here for those who never got one of these. I am in Edinburgh so my City will no doubt vote with ‘The Tory’ because they are selfish and rich. Let’s REALLY understand the question and its answers for once before we vote this time. I won’t hold my breath, but this is a tiny chance for Independence or a future path to one. Me myself I think I would want to remain in Europe. Of course many will say “Why be ruled by European law when we are already oppressed by Tory laws” and I would understand. I just think for the future it would be best to remain a part of Europe on our terms. The question of EU or not is different now the SNP have no Majority (Although the SNP will get laws passed) and the Tory as direct opposition in Holyrood. Please share for those who don’t have this.

Scotland Votes – 30 Second Scottish Election Manifesto Videos

5 voices = 5 key questions

5 voices = 5 key questions

All videos with questions below. Patrick Harvie – Green Party, Willie Rennie – Liberal Democrat, Ruth Davidson – Conservative, Kezia Dugdale – Labour Party and Scotland’s SNP leader and First Minister Nicola Sturgeon had 5 questions posed to them. 1. Education, 2. Our free National Health Service, 3. Why Scotland should or should not be in the UK, 4. Creating more jobs to improve the low figure of 170,000 unemployed that equates to 4% or 5% and lastly 5. How to further protect and improve Scotland’s amazing environment. Before the vote, remember the lies, and remember the ‘SNP give Scottish people free of charge what the 3 other Home Countries people sadly pay for, we get free prescriptions, got the new Queensferry Crossing, an end to bridge toll fees, free further education, the Council Tax freeze, an end to the Bedroom Tax and the near death of  (British Labour in Scotland) < That was from a Facebook friend Iain Moss and it would be good if we could educate further and TOTALLY make Scotland Yellow and retire some more liars who stole our freedom in 2014 by scaring 73% of over the 65’s, telling them they would lose their pensions or have reductions when this was not the case and all other lies. Reminder below of 2014 percentages as well as all 25 thirty second videos from all 5 leaders. Also to note the 3 biggest parties have female leaders, I love that. Remember the 2014 lies, but also remember we voted a political tsunami and painted Scotland SNP yellow by sending 56 SNP Politicians from Scotlands 59 London Westminster political seats in the 2015 UK Generel Elections. Lets get free Scotland, please watch and share the videos from all 5 Political party leaders below. Don’t mess up this time Scotland
