Do you know this woman?

WHO IS THIS WOMAN?
Who is this woman? Do you know? I didn’t, in fact I hadn’t a clue –

 

 

she looks like a nice lady until you research and find out she is the new 2nd in command for the Red Labour party in Scotland, just to remind you the Labour party have it’s leaders roots in England, you know that place where they haven’t a clue and couldn’t care less what happens North of Watford gap.

 
As long as the Red Labour keep picking up that possible quarter of a million pounds in expenses every year plus their £64,000 wages they are very unlikely to care about social justice or getting rid of those abominations called food banks – do you really think they are going to turn their backs on approx. £300,000 every year???

 
Her boss in the Red Labour Club is Jim Murphy, he’s that famous soap box enthusiast from the Yes/No campaigns who spent his time standing on an Iron Bru case – which brings up some important points; such as why Jim Murphy is preaching the exact opposite of what he was preaching for months before the Yes/No vote – this man really does think we all came down in the last shower.

 
Has Mr Murphy forgotten his Red Labour buddies started the ball rolling in this austerity, food banks, and abuse to Scotland’s disabled and sick – Mr Murphy is a shining example why we need to get rid of each and every Red Labour seat in Scotland.

 

 

If you still haven't a clue who this woman is, her name is Kezie Dugdale...

ALEX SALMOND AUCTION RAISES £42,100 FOR CHILDREN’S CHARITIES

ALEX SALMOND AUCTION RAISES £42,100 FOR CHILDREN’S CHARITIES

Official SNP Press Release.
 
Gifts and memorabilia received by former First Minister Alex Salmond have raised more than £42,000 for charity in an auction this afternoon.

More than three hundred lots, donated by Mr Salmond, were auctioned by Anita Manning of Great Western Auctions in Glasgow in aid of St Jerome’s orphanage, Clic Sargent, and the Scottish Youth Theatre.

Speaking after of the sale, Mr Salmond said:

“I am delighted that the sale of these items have raised an incredible £42,100 for children’s charities and even more will be added to this total when further artworks are sold at the Fine Art Auction early next year.

“Over seven and half years as First Minister I was presented with many wonderful gifts – from novelty items, like soft toys or a Zulu spear, to high value items like artwork, Cartier cufflinks or rare stamps. These were gifts to me as Scotland’s First Minister and so, on leaving office, I am delighted that their proceeds from this Christmas auction will now benefit three great Scottish charities.

“I was amazed that my saltire tie alone raised a staggering £1,600.

“Instead of packing these items away when we left Bute House, Moira and I were keen that other people be able to treasure them and raise money for charity in the process. There was something for everyone here today, for every pocket, and I hope those people who have bought one of these mementos will cherish and enjoy them as much we did.

“I want to thank Anita Manning and her team at Great Western Auctions in Glasgow for the incredible job they have done, at no cost, in cataloguing and auctioning these lots.”

Murph the Smurph New Labour Leader

Murph the Smurph New Labour Leader

 

Jim Murphy has been crowned the new white hope for the Scottish Labour and now so discredited it will take a miracle to transform them in time for GE 2015.

The deputy leader, is a lady and with the greatest of respect is a no-one why not from our perspective.

We don’t even know if they have ever worked together, of course the Smurph says it won’t do as he’s told from his head office in London.

The BBC usual bias did not disappoint, their man won but did they really need to say it was breaking news for nearly 5 hours straight on its news channels worldwide?

SNP Released this just after the results;

RECORD SNP POLL LEAD SHOWS SCALE OF PROBLEMS FACING LABOUR

The scale of the problems facing Labour’s new leadership team has been made clear today as a new opinion poll gave the SNP a record lead.

The contest was sparked after Johann Lamont stood down, revealing that Labour in Scotland is treated like a ‘branch office’ by the party’s Westminster bosses.

A new YouGov poll published in today’s Sun has shown the SNP’s lead for next year’s General Election continuing to grow to a new record level, as people across Scotland send out the message that the Westminster parties are failing to meet their expectations.

The poll put support for the SNP at 47 per cent – up 4 per cent on YouGov’s last poll and up 27 per cent on the 2010 result – while Labour is 20 points behind on 27 per cent. The poll puts support for the Tories at 16 per cent while the LibDems trail far behind on just 3 per cent – down 16 per cent on the 2010 result.

The same poll also asked people in Scotland about their view of the Smith Commission proposals and found that 51 per cent of people thought that they failed to go far enough, 23 per cent of people thought it got the balance right and 14 per cent of people think they go too far. And the poll out support for independence ahead at 47 per cent, to 45 per cent opposed.

Commenting, SNP Depute Leader Stewart Hosie MP said:

“I congratulate both Jim Murphy and Kezia Dugdale on their election to Leader and Deputy Leader.

“Jim Murphy takes over just as the scale of their problems are laid bare in the new YouGov poll – showing record levels of support for the SNP for next year’s General Election. Mr Murphy spent two years campaigning side by side with the Tories in Scotland, and in that sense he is part of Labour’s problem in Scotland, not the solution. And his strong support for tuition fees puts him at marked variance with mainstream opinion in Scotland.

Today’s poll also makes clear the scale of the disappointment that is felt across Scotland at the Westminster parties’ failure to meet people’s aspirations for more powers.

It even indicates that Jim Murphy’s own seat would be vulnerable on these poll ratings.

“People feel let down by the Westminster parties, and by Labour in particular, and are putting their trust in the SNP in increasing numbers.

There is a clear recognition that the only way to ensure Scotland gains the job-creating and welfare powers we need is by electing a strong team of SNP MPs in May, and we will be working hard every day to secure that support.”

Paedophile dangers in the U.K.

Paedophile dangers in the U.K.

 

Please note this is a disturbing video which deserves answers – the British establishment under scrutiny?

 

Your child is in mortal danger from paedophile groups in U.K., the whole of Europe and the U.S.
While we in U.K. are being shocked by the austerity, food banks and the loss of the Welfare State our children are not safe to walk the streets.
This government is bringing in new laws in stealth and presenting them at the last moment but only after they have these new laws sewn up politically.
The media is being gagged although much of the U.K. so called press is being controlled by those who’s interest is vested in silence and misinformation.
It should be noted that a government who allow paedophiles to thrive at the same time as pushing austerity, food banks and the destruction of the Welfare State are the lowest of the low and one step away from the equivalent of having the citizens freedom destroyed.
Listening to this video may bring home the threat we and our kids are under…

NORTH SEA CRUDE OIL PRICE FALLS AGAIN

NORTH SEA CRUDE OIL PRICE FALLS AGAIN

NORTH SEA CRUDE OIL PRICES FALL

North Sea Brent oil prices have fallen yet again to under $65 a barrel and OPEC determined to wipe out fracking for ever, shows no quarter will be given.

 

 

Crude has fallen nearly 45% YET petrol prices at the pumps only 10% so UK government still getting loads of our money.

 

Bad news is they will still need to borrow more to cover their losses short term as long term businesses that require cheap fuel will benefit more.

 

You might be reading this and thinking how come no reduction from the gas and electricity companies and so are we perhaps it just proves how greedy they really are, of course cheaper utility prices means less VAT returns so don’t expect London politics to help out the Scottish people anytime soon.

 

The SNP and Greens were the only parties to highlight this problems now look where we are now with a NO Vote result?

ALEX SALMOND SCARING THE ENGLISH

ALEX SALMOND SCARING THE ENGLISH

Alex Salmond getting the BBC royal treatment again – is there no shame from these idiots? How much more can we take?

We have two unknown minions slating the past First Minister of Scotland on the BBC which we pay for – I resent having to pay people to run down Scotland in any form – we have had more than enough of our over the border cousins this year after the questionable way in which they gained the independence vote being left to the friends of Westminster.

The BBC should be taken to task for this garbage – it is high time the Scottish Government took action against these people who continue to run down their northern goldmine – Scotland pays the BBC and their partners over 250 million pounds every year, if this was a newspaper the advertisers would threaten withdrawing their adverts – Scotland is sick of these cheap jibes – the BBC needs redress!

BBC BIAS ON FOODBANKS

BBC BIAS ON FOODBANKS

Yet more BBC bias reporting on the plight of the needy to apply for food through food-banks.

On the BBC today Norman Smith (BBC NEWS) was reporting on MP’s demanding more should be done to speed up benefit payments to help avoid having to go to food-banks in the first place, he also went on to confirm Tory Ministers thought the reason for more people accessing food-banks was that the information was more in the public domain, this is wholly wrong!

People cannot just turn up and say “Give us food gov”.

In order for anyone in the UK to access food-banks in the first place they need to prove they can not afford food and this can only be done through the DWP so why does the BBC not state this as fact?

Yet again any bad press the Government might get gets put into the long grass, there are genuine reasons for people and families having to go through food-banks and most of these reasons stem from IDS and his DWP departments and its them you have to beg to get the vouchers to access the said food-banks.

Is it any wonder the government wants to bring all food-banks into state control?

Hopefully the BBC will do its research first before reporting garbage just to help the DWP out of another own goal scored!

SCOTLAND’S LANDOWNERS

SCOTLAND’S LANDOWNERS

Scotland’s landowners came in stealth, bought up as much land as they could and in some cases remain unknown shielded by out of date laws perpetrated by legal representatives and getting all the benefits of owning land in Scotland.

An example is four Edinburgh lawyers fronting for an unknown owner or owners – why? what have they got to hide? isn’t it time we in Scotland knew exactly who owns these lands, after all other Countries insist on their lands belonging to their own people. We can only hope the Scottish Government takes a second and perhaps a third look at this odd situation.

Below you can read about some of the injustice going on right now in Scotland, these are taken from the U.K. governments pdf which highlights just some of the reasons and anomalies going on in Scotland’s land.

Most of the land here is owned by exceedingly wealthy people. Some of them are millionaires
from elsewhere: sheikhs, oligarchs and mining magnates who own vast estates in this country.
Although they might pay no taxes in the UK, they receive millions in farm subsidies. They are
the world’s most successful benefit tourists.
George Monbiot, The Guardian, 2 July 2013.

Rental payments vary and are top secret … [But] based on estimates the Duke of Roxburghe
could net around £1.5 million a year from his 48 120-metre-high turbines at Fallago Rig in the
beautiful Lammermuir Hills. Sir Alastair Gordon-Cumming could be earning around £435,000
annually from 29 giant turbines on his Altyre Estate near Forres in Moray. The Earl of Seafield
could get £120,000 a year from eight turbines on his estate near Banff. The Earl of Moray is
estimated to receive £2 million a year from 49 turbines at Braes O’Doune near Stirling … What
we are witnessing is … a dramatic transfer of money from the poor to the rich.
Struan Stevenson, So Much Wind, (Birlinn), Edinburgh, 2013, pp 43-46.

At first glance, Buccleuch Estates Ltd appears to be a conventional limited company with
directors and shareholders. In fact, it is the ultimate parent company for a string of other
companies including Buccleuch Properties Ltd which holds property worth £88 million …
Buccleuch Properties Ltd is, in turn, the parent company of companies such as Buccleuch
Property (Kettering) Ltd, Tarras Park Properties (Germany) Ltd, Buccleuch Property (Moscow) Ltd
and a slew of joint ventures in Cyprus, Luxembourg, Russia, Germany, Ireland and the UK.
This global empire is all ultimately owned by Buccleuch Estates Ltd. So who owns Buccleuch
Estates Ltd? The answer is that it is wholly owned by a nominee company, Anderson Strathern
Nominees Ltd, a company whose total paid-up share value is £4, whose shareholders are four
Edinburgh lawyers and whose total assets amount to £4. The company has been dormant since
its incorporation in May 1992 and it owns 100 per cent of Buccleuch Estates Ltd, a company
with total assets of £275 million and a turnover of £64 million in 2008.
The purpose of Anderson Strathern Nominees Ltd is thus merely to hold the shares of Buccleuch
Estates Ltd on behalf of others. Who those others are remains a mystery.

Ltd), Edinburgh, 2010, p 272.

A billionaire Danish fashion magnate has become the second-largest private landowner in
Britain with the purchase of the 20,000 acre Glaick Estate in Inverness-shire. Anders Holch
Povlsen purchased the land and associated properties from Xavier-Louis Vuitton, heir to the
French fashion label.
The latest acquisition by Mr Povlsen, who already owns the Glenfeshie, Ben Loyal and Kinloch
Estates, has increased the 43-year old’s land portfolio in Scotland to around 150,000 acres. It is
second only to that of the Buccleuch Estates … Mr Povlsen, whose family owns Bestseller, the
Danish fashion company that last year had a turnover of £2 billion …has been criticised in some
quarters for mounting a ‘land grab’ of Scotland to take advantage of farming subsidies, though
others claim he is motivated by a desire to protect wild land.
The Herald, 21 January 2013.
Danish billionaire Anders Holsch Povlsen has been putting together a collection of Highland
estates like a set of Lego bricks … What is going on? … The answer is – money. While we
conventional homeowners have been looking on in horror as our house prices plummet, it
seems that people who have put their faith in mud and grass, rather than bricks and mortar,
have been reaping a rich financial harvest …It’s not just the value of the land that brings in the
buyers either; it’s the fact that you can pass it on to your family without HM Revenue wanting a
slice …
So let’s get this right. Not only are you buying a commodity that increases in value [on average]
by £44 per acre per month, but you can hand it down tax-free to your children and
grandchildren. Wait, though, it gets better; on top of all that, the European Union will give you
money.
It’s called the Common Agricultural Policy direct payment, and although we don’t know what
each UK farmer gets (the European Court of Justice has declared it illegal to publish how much
is given to individuals), we do know that the National Trust [in England and Wales] got £2.6
million last year for its farmland …

CANDY CRUSH TORY MP

CANDY CRUSH TORY MP

Shock and Horror Tory MP caught playing Candy Crush for two and a half hours while in an official Parliamentary Works and Pensions Committee debating old folks.

At over £100,000 salary is this likely to get him sanctioned like other Job seekers that would have had them stripped of benefits if they dared to do likewise in say a proper job interview?

This Tory MP should at least hand back his salary and complete a community service order just for the fun of it.

It shows a complete disregard for those who elected him and shows how out of touch he and the rest of his sorry Tory party members are.

News reports are saying David Cameron also plays Candy Crush , for a number of years he has even managed to get to level 55 wow its true then he’s not very bright is he?

Just to make the point one of the authors of this blog is on level 411, been playing for 6 months but been in a coma for 5 of them….lol

You got to hand it to them Tory Toffs, addicted to Candy Crush Saga a game played by the masses to help them forget about the lives these people make for us, its enough to make one cry oh!, and he should be sacked and made to sign on next day.

Westminster In Utter Turmoil

Westminster In Utter Turmoil

 

Westminster In Utter Turmoil Now Alex has declared he’s running for Prime Minister at GE 2015.

 

He will contest the Gordon seat held by retiring Lib Dem MP Sir Malcolm Bruce.

 

Mr Salmond stood down as SNP leader and Scotland’s first minister after the “Yes” campaign was defeated in September’s independence referendum, we all know the referendum was engineered from Westminster via the three fairy story tellers and revenge will be all the sweeter.

He is expected to confirm his decision when he addresses a meeting in the constituency this morning.

There has been intense speculation that Mr Salmond would seek to return to Westminster ever since he announced he was stepping down as first minister we also knew it was his plan all along.

He currently represents the constituency of Aberdeenshire East in the Scottish Parliament and had indicated he would continue in that role.

At the 2010 general election Mr Bruce held the Gordon constituency in Aberdeenshire with a majority of 6,748 over the SNP.

BBC news correspondent Catriona Renton said there was an enormous amount of momentum behind the SNP since the independence referendum and Mr Salmond was likely to have a good chance in the Gordon seat and we stated this was his top pick on this website ages ago yet we had hoped he would have went after labours Anne Begg who has been disappointing at defending the sick and disabled at Westminster committees.

The PM jibe is to be taken in jest…..only kidding!…..after all we are not the Daily Record!
