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

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

22% Rise of Scottish Students Finishing Higher Education

Again in Scotland we must be happy with this news. The SNP pay the Tory Bedroom tax for Yes and No voters. The SNP pay for all our prescriptions be us poor or rich in Scotland. We have no road or bridge tolls in Scotland. Scotland receives more than £1,600 extra per head than the English, exposing the massive benefits they enjoy by being part of the Union but devolved and with more fiscal control, with more to come. We Scot’s have a superb National Health service compared to our English and Welsh Brothers and Sisters sadly, a Scottish Police Force, we are free online with .Scot replacing .UK.Gov. Scotland is very lucky to have what others don’t. And the amazing thing is, a simple question “How much better would Scotland and Scottish people be when we are finally free from London austerity and cruelty?” We don’t have all we want YET, but it’s comingforth_bridge_scotland_cover_1I have English family/friends and I feel for them sometimes, poor and having to pay for Medication. Scotland we are in an AMAZING place and it’s only going to get better. Imagine our wealth had we voted Yes. The UK average spend per head is £8,788, but £1,364 more for each Scottish person. Those in living in the South East of England lose out the most. They get just £7,638 per head of public spending. Londoners, in contrast, have a healthy £9,435 splurged on them which the Treasury put down to the higher infrastructure and wage costs but we all know London has it better, anything below the Watford gap and most have it good. A breakdown of the different policy areas show that Scots enjoy £307 per head spent on housing, while the English get just £138. Scots also get more than twice as much spent on them than the English on economic development: £992 per head compared to English and Welsh £469. And we want more because it’s our right. Freedom is coming sooner than most think. I stopped believing this but when I realized it was coming fast, this is why I had to start writing again



THE numbers of students in Scottish colleges has fallen by 152,000 since 2007 but figures for those completing full-time higher education are at record levels.

Figures published yesterday by the Scottish Funding Council (SFC) on college performance showed that in 2014-15, 23,717 students successfully completed higher courses, a rise of 22 per cent since 2008-09. However, the number of students in Scotland’s colleges has dropped by 152,000 since 2007. There were 226,919 students in 2014-15, compared to 379,233 in 2007-08.

Secretary for Education and Lifelong Learning Angela Constance said: “2015 was a landmark year for Scotland’s young people. A record 34,775 Scots-domiciled students were accepted to university.

“School and college-leaver destinations have been very positive and figures in December showed youth employment at its highest August to October level since 2008. Compared to 2007, the number of learning hours delivered to students with a disability has increased considerably, as have the average hours of learning per student and learning hours leading to a recognised qualification. “We have also once again comfortably exceeded targets on student numbers. These figures suggest our reforms are working and more students successfully completed full-time courses leading to recognised qualifications.”

Teaching union the Educational Institute of Scotland warned the Scottish Government’s return to national bargaining in further education will fail unless Constance takes direct action to compel all colleges to sign up.

US whistleblower Snowden attacks SNP over University laws – As we slip in ratings

A man who told the truth, American people love him, what did he do wrong?

A man who told the truth, American people love him, what did he do wrong?

Understanding if this is just more Main Stream Media spin is top of my list. There are two stories here but both are telling the same story and both come from the Herald Scotland Newspaper. It was my belief Scottish education was the best in Europe if not Earth. People travel all over the World to be educated in Scotland, even the Royals come here for education. So we have two stories, one from Glasgow University Rector Edward Snowden and also a poll put out yesterday by QS, an international careers and education network. So is our Education slipping under the SNP? Again I always share Main Stream when I know the source is ok, here they paint a very bad picture, or is it false information we are so used to now? Thoughts?

US whistleblower Edward Snowden attacks SNP

Read Ist full Article Here:


US whistleblower Edward Snowden has condemned controversial proposals to change the way Scottish universities are run.

The computer analyst, who is currently rector of Glasgow University, described plans by the Scottish Government as “a real threat” to the autonomy of the sector. Speaking at the university via a video link from Moscow to incoming students Snowden said: “More than anything else….. it will dilute the student and university voice in determining your own government, how you want to be ruled, how you want to be represented on the most senior bodies.

“This means ancient universities could lose their position of rector entirely. Beyond that it means things like the buildings that you work in, the funding you can generate through grants and charitable status could be lost entirely. “While this may seem a little political for people who have just arrived in the university, what you need to think about is this is a decision – if you don’t participate in it – you will lose influence you once had, you will lose rights you once had, you will lose representation you once had that you will never be able to receive again.”

Ron Paul was of course correct

Scottish universities amongst the best in the world

TWO of Scotland’s leading universities have slipped down the league table of the world’s finest institutions. The top Scottish university was Edinburgh, which came 21st overall and sixth in the UK after falling four places from last year. The second ranked institution was Glasgow University, which came 62nd after a drop of seven places.

However, St Andrews bucked the trend by going up 20 places to 68, one of biggest climbers on the list. The survey, run by QS, an international careers and education network, comes at a time when Scottish universities fear their international status is under threat because of proposed changes to the way they are run.

A spokesman for Universities Scotland welcomed the “further proof” of the international reputation of Scotland’s higher education sector. He said: “Competition is increasing in the global higher education marketplace, so it is important that Scotland’s higher education institutions continue to receive the full support of the Scottish Government to compete effectively. “Scotland’s universities compete successfully on a global stage because we are autonomous and because we are entrepreneurial.

The amazing Scottish education system – Why being Scottish is just awesome


The way School works here in Scotland

By @ShaunyGibson – Used to be @ ShaunyNews

My oldest Daughter Courney who is 5, a few weeks back astonished me when I asked “What did you do today at School sweetie” She replied ‘Literacy’ although both are 5 years Scotland_6d8966_535971 (2)old and 4 years old and still really small children I must say the Education system in Scotland is utterly fantastic. My 4 year old Daughter Chloe is in 2nd year Nursery before she starts Primary school next August, she is doing brilliant, she can do the whole A to Z and Count to 100 and can point out over 20 countries on our Globe ornament we have. My older Daughter Courtney is a smart kid, same as all the kids in her class. They all went to nursery together then the 50 or so at Nursery got split into two Primary 1 classes. She can name 30 words from any letter of the Alphabet, count to 500 or more and can name almost every country on the Globe, she has issues with all the Eastern bloc Countries like Albania etc.

Today we got a letter. We had heard this was coming and what was going to happen. What the SNP have done for Education in this country over the last 10 or so years has been nothing short of amazing! My little Princess is learning Spanish in Primary 1 as of January 2015 after the Christmas holidays. She will learn Spanish at a time her small brain is like a sponge. Then in Primary 4 she will learn a 3rd language. So English, Spanish and we are thinking German, we will let Courtney have a say nearer the time. To think my little baby will be speaking English of course, Spanish and German by the time she leaves Primary School that lasts 7 years till age 12 is just amazing


Language lessons at 5 years old

Once in High school they get to learn one further Language, French perhaps? So by the time my two Daughters leave School they will be fluent in Spanish, German and French and one other if they decide to stay on for 2 more years at High school. I was there when both my son’s were born, I was 17, I loved them and cried but I was a kid myself. I made mistakes but made up for them. I taught them to be responsible tolerant young men, I am so proud of them both and love their partners like they are Daughters in law already

Scotland invented the technological world we see today

Scotland invented the technological world we see today

I was there for the birth of my two princess’s 5 and 4 years ago and I remember When Courtney came out, and I secretly wanted a Daughter I cried and hugged Dawn in a moment I will never forget. I live for moments, anyone who REALLY KNOWS ME will know I love moments, I love to be caught in a moment. Recently I walked my Mum down the aisle, that was a moment.

As one of my son’s leave home, the other starts his new job as a chef at a high level we have our work cut out with the girls. Sure they fight and argue but when they are upset I see they are just small bags of emotion. I STRUGGLE to give them a row, discipline them. I really can’t bring myself to raise my voice so I leave that to Dawn unless I really have to. So, to sum up, Scotland didn’t get independence, but we got ‘ALMOST’ Home rule and there is more to come. Within 5 years Scotland will be an independent nation and our Education system will get better still. Scotland invented the modern World, no, really we did.

This is what Scotland invented

I guess tonight I am just so happy to be Scottish, live where I do, have the people around me I do, and I mean my Scottish friends, some I know many I don’t. I will say a lot “Scotland is paradise” but just in a fridge 😀 But it really is a wonderful place to live. Many who come here stay here and I think I know why. We don’t have huge immigration issues but we welcome anyone. And we fight on for freedom, it will happen, and it will happen before my Daughters hit high school, we didn’t get mad, we were angry, but we dropped all the side show rubbish, now we are looking to go again. I write for Edinburgh West here Now we want to make brilliant, better, and we will do it, the will is strong, the voice is one. Being Scottish just rocks. I am passionate about being Scottish as you are for your country. Really is that simple, and I can’t hide it 😀

2 minutes 10 seconds in, you will understand, this is an amazing song
