The SNP could enact ‘Unilateral Declaration of Independence’

unnamed

I am NOT ūüėÄ 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 ‚ÄėIMPOSSIBLE < 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 ‚Äď 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, ‚ÄúThe 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.

‚ÄúThe 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.

Allow the North of England to secede from the UK or join Scotland?

Anyone remember this blog I did here?¬†40,000+ sign petition for north of England to join¬†Scotland. It seems this story still has legs. I did this blog on May 28th 2015 and here we are a year on and the story is drawing more support. There is a petition for this and it’s sitting at¬†47,680 supporters with¬†2,320 needed to reach 50,000. WOW!! The petition details are below. Cheers!

The deliberations in Westminster are becoming increasingly irrelevant to the north of England. The northern cities feel far greater affinity with their Scottish counterparts such as Glasgow and Edinburgh than with the ideologies of the London-centric south.

The needs and challenges of the north cannot be understood by the endless parade of old Etonions lining the frontbenches of the House of Commons. The north of England should join the newly independent Scotland and regain control over its own destiny. We, the people of the north, demand that in the event that Scotland becomes independent the border between England and the New Scotland be drawn along a line that runs between the River Dee and the mouth of The Humber (see map).

22% Rise of Scottish Students Finishing Higher Education

Education secretary Angela Constance

Education secretary Angela Constance

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.

‚ÄúSchool 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.¬†‚ÄúWe 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.‚ÄĚ

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.

Day after the Scottish referendum – We must be Reminded for 2016

This was the message the No vote carried. #Racism

This was the message the No vote carried. #Racism #Sectarianism #Hate

I remember sitting at around 8pm hours before the Polls closed when Kay Burley from Sky News asked an ‘SNP politician at a hall in Glasgow “How do you feel now that you lost”¬†The SNP Politician asked back “How do you know this, the polls are open for a few hours yet”¬†So it was strange for sure. Below I have 3 different reactions. The hate, the hope and the fear. I say again ‘Hope over fear’ In 2016 we have a chance to free Scotland from Westminster by filling Holyrood with Nationalist’s. People who don’t hate, people who have REAL RATIONAL reasons for wanting Whitehall separation. As we are 6 Months away from the 2 vote’s Scottish Elections¬†we must look back, look at the lies, the anger, the hate, the sorrow, looking at our kids and fearing for their future. Allow these 2 video’s and images to burn into you soul, so when the next vote happens we are in more knowledge, the Yes groups MUST stop hating each other. I say the people of Scotland will free Scotland. Below Alex Salmond spoke and said these exact words “It’s not about me, David Cameron, the SNP, it’s about Scotland’s future” We need REAL leaders in Scotland, real people with real emotions, I give you 3¬†right here, 2 showing humility, 1 after winning an Austerity vote…Let us not let the other one down next time.

JS62949602

All we see here is love, hope and REAL! You won’t see other Politicians doing this

[VIDEO] Scotland, listen and be at one with our future!
Alex Salmond tried like many to get people to see sense

How many voted in selfish mode for TODAY or for THAT DAY without thinking about tomorrow or 20/50/100 years from now. One thing I can say 100% here is WE WILL BE FREE BEFORE MY DAUGHTERS HIT HIGH SCHOOL. Both are 5 and 6, Primary 1 and 2, Scotland will be free long before they go to High School aged 12 or 13. We must now Scotland start a new Yes movement, we must come together. Please watch both video’s and also ask “If we are better together, then why did they have to tell us so” We are not better, nowhere in the UK are we better off. The entire UK is suffering and I see and hear that human cost loud and clear. But I am Scottish born and I want a free Scotland. The silent majority that beat us with a 5% swing will be gone by the year 2020. We must allow the circle of life to happen. As I said many times. From 2014 to 2020¬†we gain 6 years of youthful voters who voted Yes at 70%+, we SADLY lose 6 years of over 65’s who voted No at 70%+, and before you pull that card on me, I could lose both my parents by 2020. See this isn’t about me, you, my parents, your parents, it’s about balance and fairness.

The voice of a VERY DECENT England lad

The voice of a VERY DECENT England lad

I have two wee princess’s here. Do you have young kids? Will you be able to look them in the eye and tell them why you voted whatever way you did when in years to come they ask? I give up on the haters. One of my best mates voted no, he had his reasons, I respect them and we remain friends. I have family who voted no, I still love them. But the people who voted no that I know, I would say 90% regret their no vote, they see the lies now, they see the Austerity cuts now, pensioners lost, the poor lost, people committed suicide, Scotland can stand alone fiscally and if I have to tell you why I don’t think you deserve a vote as you CLEARLY have no idea what you are voting for. With the budget we do get we are 10x better off than our English and Welsh friends as it is, so how GOOD can we become free? I can’t wait for the day I can stand up in a free Scotland knowing my kids have a GOOD LIFE AHEAD. Free from hatred and lies. See Scotland has become the World’s most Politically aware nation. 2020 sounds good to me.. So look again Scotland and decide again Scotland. Think of Scotland, not your Bank account or other selfish reasons

BREAKING! Jeremy Corbyn: I’ll work with the SNP to scrap Trident – As I said!

corbyn_3444025b

When I wrote this 12 days ago¬†Scotland ‚Äď Jeremy Corbyn, Royal Family, Trident, House of Lords, Israel &¬†Video‚Äôs¬†<Click) I got a bit of abuse to be fair, not complaining, having an opinion and sharing it will get you all kinds of reactions and opinions so I am used to it. But I will say again I think Jeremy will help more than hinder the Scottish Yes Movement. This is one thing we were told he would backtrack on, but no! He is siding with the SNP/Wales/Greens, this could be HUGE for Trident’s future, how long till Mr Corbyn is called a little Hitler like Nicola Sturgeon was? Will the Establishment media go for the man now? As I said in the article above, EXCITING¬†TIMES ARE COMING! Brace for impact Scotland!

Jeremy Corbyn has confirmed he will work with the SNP to try and scrap Britain’s nuclear deterrent despite opposition to the move from his own backbenches. The Labour leader reaffirmed his long-standing opposition to Trident and said he would vote with the 56 Nationalists at Westminster on the issue. Mr Corbyn said he would like to see thousands of jobs associated with nuclear defence in Scotland transferred to other forms of high-value engineering, but did not specify what these were.

The SNP welcomed his comments but said the ‚Äúreal test‚ÄĚ would be whether he can persuade his party when its debates calls for Trident to be scrapped at its conference, which starts this weekend.

The Tory majority in the Commons, combined with the support of pronuclear Labour MPs, means the Government is highly unlikely to lose a vote on the deterrent’s renewal.

Although a vote in the Commons is not scheduled to take place until next year, earlier this month George Osborne announced £500 million to revamp its home at the Faslane naval base on the Clyde and make it fit for purpose until at least 2067.

Labour Scotland secretly side with yes? Nicola & Alex, now Lamont speak

Lamont

I KNEW IT AND SAID IT!¬†Scottish Independence could renew¬†Labour¬†When¬†Johann Lamont stood down I suggested perhaps she was deep down a yes voter. I also said I believed at the time through speaking to people and research there was a HUGE yes vote within the Scottish Labour Party, now we almost have proof. Inside Labour Scotland there is a HUGE Yes movement and I would say over 50% if I was prodded with a stick for an educated guess. Their Leader and Vice Leader stood down soon after the No vote last September and I said in a few blogs it was my belief there was a good amount of Labour MP’s being slapped down. Now they have a young girl running the Scottish Labour party almost on her own,¬†Kezia Dugdale is as faithful to Labour as Ruth Davidson was and is to David Cameron. To me they are just modern day noblemen (Woman I know) who are selling their Scottish souls to London.

Whoever made this image was closer to this truth than they were perhaps at the time of making it

Whoever made this image was closer to this truth than they were perhaps at the time of making it

Also remember Alex Rowley? I do as I keep all the small details by writing them of saving links and images, he said this, also you can click all these links >¬†Labour in Scotland must become the party of Home Rule or we will not¬†survive¬†He didn’t come out and say “Labour should back the Yes movement” but looking back, he actually was! So we now have the proof that within Labour in it’s Scottish Branch Office there are Politicians wanting to vote yes, who else resigned? Do we have a list Scotland? That would be interesting. Also looking back they brought in Jim Murphy who was just lost!¬†Gaffe as Murphy doesn‚Äôt know Labour housing¬†policy¬†Totally out his depth as Scottish Labour was murdering itself internally while trying to keep on a brave face as the Referendum came and went. We can visibly now see that story, Labour are in BITS in Scotland because most wanted a Yes vote!! WOW or what!!¬†Never let us forget this >¬†The All New ‚ÄėFundilymundily‚Äô Amazing Jim Murphy Blog¬†video!!!!!!¬†Please keep reading beyond the story below, I came up with another few issues I think the Yes movement now must debate

August 17th I suggested¬†Scottish Independence could renew¬†Labour¬†Maybe I was seeing internal Labour killing each other, maybe I should have blogged it more, I am now looking back a year blogging to see if I can find some more evidence or articles then that become more today, things we just didn’t look at and now we do, like many things I am sharing here. What if all along Labour Scotland actually wanted to say “Stuff you London, we are not doing this” Because when¬†Johann Lamont said “Labour London treat Scottish Labour like a branch office” These words by Johann today are more than they were at the time. Now we see Johann was perhaps¬†a yes voter but having to do what she was being paid to do, same “Paid to do” as the BBC allegedly had to do. We remember also Kevin Bridges saying “Everyone in this BBC building wants to vote yes, we have been told not to mention it” Remember?¬†Kevin Bridges admits to BBC lies,¬†100%¬†Looking back the words were huge, today they are more, especially with Alex Salmond coming out AT LAST on the record saying “The BBC were bias” Kevin Bridges said it, as did many looking back. Now the story is MORE!

Labour should consider having a free vote in any future independence referendum, according the party’s former Scottish leader Johann Lamont.Ms Lamont was speaking as part of a series of BBC Scotland interviews to mark the anniversary of the referendum.The Labour MSP said it was “self-evident” that some people within the Labour movement had accepted that Scotland could be independent.¬†She said a free vote was a debate the party should have.

In the previous interview in the series, Blair Jenkins, the former chief executive of the Yes campaign, appealed to the new Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale to allow members to be allowed to campaign for independence.

He told last week’s Good Morning Scotland programme he thought there would be “very strong pressure” on the party to do that – even if the official position would be against independence.

Mr Jenkins said he would prefer Labour to back a Yes vote but “as a minimum position” they should allow prominent people in the party to campaign against its policy as they did in the 1979 devolution referendum.

106hvuc

Ballot box

She told Good Morning Scotland: “We know that there were Labour people who supported Yes and we need to understand what that was and have that debate inside the party.
“It’ll be for others to decide whether you then make it a free vote. People clearly exercised their vote in the ballot box anyway.”
She added: “If that’s a debate we should have inside the party, why not? Because what is self-evident is that there were people within the Labour movement more broadly who did accept the argument that Scotland could be an independent country.”

Despite saying the idea of a free vote should be debated, Ms Lamont added any decision over independence was “far bigger” than what was voted on in 1979.¬†Ms Lamont also said that “on balance” she believed Labour was right to join with the Conservatives in the Better Together campaign.
But she said Labour should have had a better resourced and more energetic campaign of its own.¬†In the interview she said she felt “pushed to jump” before she left the role but she refused to point the finger of blame at Ed Miliband or at Margaret Curran, an old friend who was at the time shadow secretary of state for Scotland.

~End Story~

As I said in a few blogs this week, THIS IS ABOUT TO GET INTERESTING!! 

THIS! IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN HINTING AT!

How many more lies were told? Bad deeds done?

Do you think the SNP and all the lawyers they can afford and lawyers working for free to prove Scotland was wronged would just do nothing? This week Ruth Davidson had her words and alleged actions send to the highest Court in ALL OF SCOTLAND!! And perhaps more of her party were involved in a system to lie to Scotland and wreck the Yes vote, as they went on to do ALLEGEDLY. Something Alex Salmond hit on last week.

AND HE MEANT IT!

AND HE MEANT IT!

Alex Salmond came out and basically blamed the BBC and Nicola Sturgeon said “Cameron is living on borrowed time” This is why I say in the top 4¬†blogs below “GOOD TIMES ARE COMING” Try and make the pieces fit together and we have a story here. Seatbelts on Scotland, I believe the impossible is about to happen

THE FULL STORY IS NOW VISIBLE!

THE FULL STORY IS NOW VISIBLE!

SNP to create new role to promote gender equality – Fairly I Hope

SNP to create new role to promote gender equality within party, as all-female shortlists imposed at every opportunity

SNP to create new role to promote gender equality within party, as all-female shortlists imposed at every opportunity

This is a good move by the¬†SNP¬†for sure! The only thing I will say is I hope Nicola doesn’t take it too far in the way there are more woman than men. EX-SNP¬†MSP¬†John Wilson stood down last year ‘stating there was no¬†‘Best person for the Job mentality’¬†at play within the Scottish National Party. Now when John stood down from his position it got very little news coverage and that for me is a worry. If we want a free Scotland, and I know you do, I do, we must have a¬†transparent¬†SNP with transparent news also! I like the fact Woman should be given a job due to their ability and also paid the same. The SNP must be real careful here they don’t cross a line where woman are getting jobs purely on gender and not ability to do the job. Now I will say no more here, I think we all agree on woman having equal rights and opportunities but we must not go past that line of woman first. So when I say this is good news, it is good news if implemented correctly #Alba

THE SNP is to create a new powerful role within the party with a remit to promote gender equality, in a move that could reopen internal tensions over use of all-women shortlists.¬†Plans have been outlined internally to create a National Women’s and Equalities Convener, who would be heavily involved in the vetting and selection of candidates.

The details are being proposed by the SNP’s National Executive Committee (NEC) in a draft agenda for the party’s upcoming conference in October.

Under the proposals, which have been circulated to members, the party constitution would be changed to ensure the convenor becomes one of ten SNP national office bearers alongside figures including Nicola Sturgeon. They will also have a place on the influential NEC, which sets the political direction of the SNP and has the final say over who can stand for election.¬†It follows the SNP’s last conference in March, which saw the membership vote to allow all-female shortlists in the upcoming Scottish Parliament elections despite strong opposition from some members.

Since the decision, all nine seats held by the SNP for next year’s Holyrood vote where the incumbent is standing down have since seen all-female shortlists imposed on constituencies by party HQ. The move has provoked a backlash from some party members who are unhappy that men have been excluded from the chance to stand in their local area, with competition fiercer than ever due to the party’s increased membership and ratings in the polls.

John Wilson (Left), an MSP who quit the SNP last year, said that the issue had caused division. He said: “There was a strong view within the SNP that it should be the best candidates chosen, regardless of gender. I think there are still a lot of members like that, including some female members.”¬†The appointment of a permanent equalities convenor with a remit over vetting and selection suggests that positive discrimination could become a feature of internal party politics beyond next May’s election.

The job description for the new role states that the new convenor will be “responsible for the development, implementation and monitoring of equality strategies, approved by the NEC, to cover under-represented and minority groups”.¬†They will support constituency and branch women’s officers and chair the SNP Women’s Academy while advising “on equality issues relating to internal procedures, such as vetting and selection”.

The position will replace the role of women’s and equalities officer, currently held by Ochil and South Perthshire MP Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh who will be seen as the most likely choice to take on the more powerful job.¬†Party members will vote on who wins the post, with an SNP source saying the creation of the prominent role was “an extension of democracy” within the party.

Adopting a sharper focus on dealing with issues of gender equality has become a characteristic of Ms Sturgeon’s leadership. The move to allow all-female shortlists came after she appointed Scotland’s first gender balanced cabinet and launched a series of high-profile initiatives including encouraging equal gender splits in boardrooms by 2020.¬†It has led to accusations from some quarters that Ms Sturgeon should get her own house in order, with just over a quarter of her MSPs female. Almost half of Labour MSPs, a party that embraced all female shortlists long before the SNP, are women.¬†However, under Ms Sturgeon’s leadership the party had the highest proportion of female candidates among main parties in Scotland at May’s general election. At Westminster, 36 per cent of SNP MPs are female, compared to 43 per cent of Labour MPs and 21 per cent of Tories.

Mundell has a go at the SNP again as he grasps straws as he is losing soon!

This guy sends his own family to sleep with his mouth

This guy sends his own family to sleep with his rhetoric

I don’t know about you but this guy, I really wish he had lost his seat on May 7th, it gave the Tory party a Scottish Secretary. He almost lost his seat and I am guessing in 2016 he may lose his seat locally. He is grasping at straws as the last man standing in a Scotland that is tiring of the ‘Same old, same old. The story yesterday about¬†Lord-Sewel <Click) Only served to show us what we already knew or figured out. These people have the interests of Oil giants, Bankers and Corporate entities at heart. I wrote it, remember?¬†Fascist State Westminster Establishment? ‚Äď The List!!¬†<Click) So we all should know from 2014 to 2015 via vile remarks stating Nicola Sturgeon was a ‘Mini Hitler and Scotland could cause a new Balkans ‘type war, right here in the UK. Their rhetoric is dangerous. I remember in late 2012 when we were 2 years away, we had no idea what 2014 would bring after the signing of the ‘Edinburgh Agreement was signed I asked myself “Could Scotland become as bad as Northern Ireland was” due to the visible Loyalist we seen oh too well on the night we lost the Referendum but over time I knew we could AND WILL go it alone, ironic as it is, today!¬†Yes voters fight for what the No voters were promised! #Irony right there. Soon this man will be on the same pile of idiotic politicians grasping every straw they can. Remember before we removed Jim Murphy we heard he consulted a lawyer on ‘Will he still get paid if he lost his seat? These people have the interest of others at heart but I ask, what ‘Others? The blog I did below this shows clearly since 2010 a rise of 55% has happened in the Homeless department, yeah that many people are now homeless so these fools can take drugs, buy prostitutes, pay for a 2nd home for their kids and more, it’s ALL been proven. Read above about Lord Sewel and this will give you a rough idea about the people WE PAY! to lead us. We must rise up Scotland, we must stop hating each other and stand as one, or we fall as individuals. All the blue font¬†part’s above you can click for the story, just saved me telling the same story 20 times. What we do Scotland?

~~Via: http://www.heraldscotland.com/ ~~

THE SNP’s position of “inserting themselves into English local decision-making” is not about contributing to democratic debate south of the Border but a crude ruse to break up Britain, David Mundell has claimed.

The Scottish Secretary also made clear the SNP General Election landslide would make no difference to how the Conservative Government would approach more powers for Holyrood, saying: “I don‚Äôt see the result as an endorsement of separatism or a reversal of the referendum as some people suggest.”

But Mr Mundell signalled that he was preparing to alter the wording of certain parts of the Scotland Bill in an attempt to placate the Nationalists, who have complained about Westminster retaining vetoes, particularly on the issue of welfare.

‚ÄúIt‚Äôs perfectly possible to have a shared space in relation to welfare…We are not in the business of vetoing; we‚Äôre in the business of making this work,” declared Mr Mundell.

The Secretary of State brushed aside repeated questions about whether or not the UK Government would, as some MPs have demanded, bring back its controversial proposal for English Votes for English Laws(Evel) in the form of legislation rather than a mere change to the Commons’ standing orders; he insisted the proposed change had ‚Äúno detriment‚ÄĚ to Scotland and did ‚Äúnot carry any threat to the UK‚ÄĚ.

But earlier this month David Cameron ordered a tactical retreat on Evel after fears were raised that the Conservative Government in the face of opposition from Labour, SNP, Northern Irish and Welsh MPs could risk a Commons defeat. Last week, peers inflicted such a defeat for the Prime Minister when they backed a call to shelve Evel and, instead, establish a joint committee of both Houses to consider the proposal.

Mr Mundell admitted the Government had botched its approach, saying: “There wasn’t an understanding as to what exactly was being proposed.”

He stressed he was still in favour of Evel as a modest means of bringing “fairness and equilibrium” to the devolved settlement, denounced the “staged hysteria” of its critics and claimed that the Government, by postponing the vote to the autumn, had given MPs “a longer time for consideration”.

Asked about the SNP’s apparent shift on voting on England-only matters such as fox-hunting, the Scottish Secretary claimed it was “entirely predictable” given, he argued, the Nationalists always operated out of opportunity not principle.

“It has three objectives. One is attention; that objective was achieved. Secondly, there is a clear objective and we saw it in comments Angus Robertson made about wanting to insert themselves into English local decision-making. People see through it and that what this is about is the objective of breaking up the United Kingdom. It‚Äôs not about contributing to democracy or debate in England…It‚Äôs not going to work because people see it for what it is.‚ÄĚ

Given the SNP have complained the Scotland Bill does not fully reflect The Vow on more powers for Holyrood, Mr Mundell was asked if the Government was ignoring their democratic mandate of May 7.

‚ÄúThe democracy at the end of the day is that this was an election to the UK Parliament. In the context of the referendum and what people in Scotland have done is to elect their representatives to the UK Parliament, having voted to stay in the United Kingdom. I don‚Äôt see the result as an endorsement of separatism or a reversal of the referendum as some people suggest.”

Noting how the SNP proposition during the election of a Labour-Nationalist alliance was rejected in favour of a majority Tory Government, the Secretary of State insisted: “There isn‚Äôt an issue about the legitimacy of the Government across the whole of the UK…¬†“The SNP pitch was not on specific Smith Plus powers, it was on delivering the powers promised during the referendum and it was being a voice for Scotland. That‚Äôs what we are doing; we are delivering the powers promised during the referendum and we‚Äôre giving them their voice,” he added.

Westminster – Reform SNP voice distribution of new MP’s from Scotland

19310_10205543829906534_3352631729665297384_n

PLEASE SHARE THIS PETITION TO GIVE SCOTLAND MORE VOICE IN WESTMINSTER! https://www.change.org/p/rt-hon-david-cameron-mp-david-cameron-mp-john-bercow-mp-peter-mundell-mp-uk-parliament-reform-procedures-to-reflect-party-distribution-of-new-mps-from-scotland

The following is quoted from The National, dated.11 May 2015:

“The monthly Scottish Questions in Parliament looks set to be an odd affair. Under the current system the Secretary of State for Scotland will answer six questions from the Shadow Secretary of State for Scotland, while 56 SNP MPs watch on from the back benches and are allowed to ask one question.”

At present Scotland has one MP each from the Labour, Conservative And Liberal Democrat parties, and 56 MPs from the Scottish National Party. Because these 56 MPs are not in government, or the official opposition party, their debating priveleges are curtailed, meaning virtually all of Scotland’s democratically elected MPs have an unnecessarily limited voice in the UK Parliament. Any true democrat will immediately realise that reform is urgently required. The UK government should act quickly to ensure that this reform takes place in an effective and fair manner.

Why Americans believe all Muslims hate and kill – Religion hates ‘Open Minds’

Direct quote and video below will confuse you more!

Direct quote and video below will confuse you more!

(Video) John Kerry Scripture Says U S Should Protect Muslims

Now read all of this, I state not all people, I state it’s small percentages of people! This morning, very early morning here in Scotland,¬†I have had to sit and read (Now blocked)¬†racist sectarian uneducated Americans tell me ‘All Muslims’ want to kill everyone else. Now, in the USA there are many Muslims, in my Country Scotland I know some Muslims and if you watch the video above USA, through scripture you have been told ‘By Obama via Kerry’ to be friends with Muslims. John Kerry, obviously speaking for the President said as much and many American people had no idea how to handle this simple message. This is a video that confused me greatly at the time but now we know Obama and the American government have almost turned their¬†back on Israel and Obama has¬†been called ‘Anti Semitic’ by the American media (Video Below) and religiously driven poorly advised stupid Americans, it is now clear to me why Kerry said what he did. Also, not all Americans are stupid, just some, but as you will read there are stupid people in Scotland where I live also

I don’t have all the answers to the World’s ill’s people but what I am is educated, I have knowledge I have gained in my 41 years here on Earth. I live in a Country where our people are tolerant to foreign people to a point, No terrorists of course, 2 guys tried it by driving a burning van into Glasgow Airport and while both were on fire Scottish guys beat the crap out of them. We have issues with Christians hating Catholics and it is a big issue in the West of Scotland, but for me, where I stand I see a hateful Christian Scotland. Now I will retract that and you will see why if you read on. Not all Scottish Christians (They are called Protestants here) want to hate. It is a very small minority of Protestants who hate.

THIS HERE IS BRUTAL PROPAGANDA FOR STUPID AMERICAN PEOPLE
Obama & USA Clash with Netanyahu & Israel
Here is just one of many US TV Media calling Obama ‘Anti Semitic?’
I think the US People, mostly want to side with Israel, I don’t know why. So it’s a Religious thing?

Last year when my Country had a vote to leave the British Union and we lost 55% to 45% for whatever reason, all I know now is we are informed more today, we learnt why we lost so we are informing each other more and the polls for 2015 General Election on May 7th show the Scottish National Party will hold about 90 of Scotland parliament and could have as many as 50 SNP Politicians in London! Knowledge is EVERYTHING in life. Sadly¬†the day after this vote the Protestants came out, while the Yes voters were still cheering the fact we had changed UK politics forever and they decided to beat up every yes voter in sight, even Protestants yes voters! Now I will take that back also because it was a VERY small % of Protestants who came out to cause damage to anyone really. But below (Video) are a¬†small % of Protestants who want to cause hatred, we must understand a land and it’s people through truth and logic before we try and define them, for me it is very easy to define many American people. But please, I have over 400 American friends I speak to on Skype, email, we talk in many places, most¬†are like me, opened minded, some follow Israel through their religious teachings and I have to respect that, friends don’t have to agree. What I do see with Americans the most is hate, people who claim to love Jesus then cast stones, first thing I was taught in Religious Sunday School when I was a kid was “Do not cast stones” But all I have seen as an adult are other religiously minded adults here in Scotland and in the USA and all over the World cast stones! It is a very small % and when we understand there are around 1.8 BILLION¬†¬†Muslims on Earth, where 7 Billion of us live, if 1% is ISIS that is 18 Million radical isis in 2015!, we must also understand that the percentages of Muslims who want to kill people or be terrorists are¬†very very small, as small as Westboro Baptist Church if we follow the populous to percentage rule, by Religious haters

What I am sharing are a small % Scottish of Protestants, the winners + No voters beat up peaceful yes voters
God Save the Queen Glasgow Style

Now I retracted twice there and I did so because of the idiocy of Americans driven by a religious intolerance that is about as hateful as it gets. Westboro Baptist Church are hateful but they are ‘Radical Christians’ right? See where I am going here? I see hate in many American Christians against ANYONE who wants to side with Palestine, I am one of these people and here is why I do so https://shaunynews.com/2015/03/25/why-i-stand-in-solidarity-with-palestine/

~~~

education

America if you want to focus on the USA – I suggest you look at this, uneducated, clueless American kids
The worst thing you can be is uneducated, America you are 30th or so when it comes to ‘Best Educated’ on Earth

~~~

See being informed and opened minded allows a person to see past a hatred or just hatred in general. When the comments were made on Twitter and I sat scratching my head I thought to myself ‘I bet they are American’ and I was right. Now let me retract again ‘Not all Americans want to hate or side with Israel’ This has been proved and the ones who don’t side with Israel are the informed and educated in America. I repeat, not all Americans side with Israel and hate people the same as all the 138¬†Countries on Earth who demand Palestine be a free Sovereign Nation.

Israeli people HATE what Government do to Palestine! I don't make this up, go research!

Equatorial Guinea, Kiribati, Liberia, Madagascar, and Ukraine.

Australians for Palestine has further analyzed the voting pattern of ostensible democracies:“According to the highly respectable Democracy Index run by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), only 25 countries are full democracies. So, of those democracies, 17 voted for, 3 voted against and 5 abstained. If we take flawed democracies into account, 48 countries voted for, 5 voted against and 24 abstained
