Inveterate liar tells the truth

Wee Ginger Dug

The tombstone toothed son of Satan, the warspawning liemonger of Labour, the parasitical worm in the bowels of progressive politics, has treated us to something new. No, he’s not suddenly realised that his Christian faith means he’s supposed to repent of his sins, for Tony believes that Christianity has a lot more to do with product placement. The product being himself being placed in a position of power and influence which allows him to make tons of money. Neither has the great dissembler been overcome with a bout of self-awareness leading him to beg for forgiveness.

No, what’s happened is that the toothy trickster has treated Scottish independence supporters to the novelty of using us as a threat in someone else’s Project Fear. What’s even more of a novelty was that Tony wasn’t charging tens of thousands for uttering his words of self-serving wisdom. However the greatest novelty of all…

The hypocrisy of Cameron: pro-Putin Russian oligarchs give millions to Tory Party

Pride's Purge

A foreign state openly sponsoring its agents to run around London killing people with radioactive poison seems to be the very definition of state-sponsored terrorism.

So why is Cameron so keen to allow his party to be funded by pro-Putin Russians?

At a Tory Party fundraising dinner not long before the last election, ultra-wealthy Russians were the most representative foreign nationality at the fundraising event.

According to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, here are some of the foreign billionaires who attended the Tory Party party fundraiser in 2014:

And here’s Cameron chatting with Putin allies at a Tory Party fundraiser:

Cameron’s also made it possible for rich Russians, as well as Saudis, to come to the UK without even having to have a normal visa – if they are rich enough of…

The Great Scottish Blog War

I’ve been keeping out the Great Scottish Blog Wars. In case you haven’t noticed, which is another way of saying in case you’re a sane person who doesn’t care about arguments on social media because you have a real life, battle lines have been drawn over the question of list votes, and the best way to maximise the number of pro-independence MSPs in the next Scottish parliament. The merits and demerits of voting for RISE or the Greens in the list instead of voting twice for the SNP have been debated, dissected, and screamed at from trenches.

Some have accused other people of trying to silence them and shut down the debate, only they’ve been making the accusation on blogs and on Twitter where there really is very little sign that anyone is being gagged. In fact the ones who are claiming to have been censored and closed down seem…

A guest post by Sam Miller

Well we’re sixteen months on from the referendum and on the edge of considering Westminster’s bestest ever settlement on devolution. In fact it’s going to be quite a busy year, what with the Holyrood elections and the possibility of a looming EU referendum.

The outcome of our own referendum (and yes there were outcomes and obligations for both sides of the debate) is now upon us. How do we feel about those outcomes, those consequences? Do we believe that Better Together and HMG have delivered satisfactorily on their pledges and assurances made throughout the campaign, or that the Smith Commission served any real purpose, delivered anything worthwhile? After all, folks were promised safer pensions, more job prospects, current job security in certain sectors, especially defence contracts and finance. We were assured of economic stability, security and risk share bolstered by a united better togetherness…

The Tony and Ken Show

Wee Ginger Dug

Despite mounting pressure, the BBC is still resisting any prospect of Scotland getting its own national channel. Due to the EU charter commitments of the UK Government to protect and foster the minority and regional languages, we’ve got BBC Alba broadcasting in Gaelic, but there’s no similar European treaty obligation to provide a national channel for Scotland in English. Since the UK government didn’t ratify chapter 3 of the treaty in respect of Scots, only chapter 2, there’s no obligation to provide a national Scots language channel either. This leaves Scotland, which we’re repeatedly told is the most devolved nation in the history of devolviness, as the only self-governing or autonomous country or territory in Europe without its own publicly owned TV channel. It’s pathetic.

The only thing more pathetic than the BBC’s treatment of Scotland is the acquiescence of certain Unionist parties and commentators in the BBC’s metropolitan dismissal…
