SCOTLAND IS RICH, VERY RICH!

 

 

Despite these ever joyful politicians who spread gloom and doom about Scotland, maybe they should take a look at these percentage figures;;

 

Scotland represents just 8.3% of the UK population.

We have the following share of UK resources –

***
– 32% Land area

***
– 61% Sea area

***
– 90% Surface fresh water

***
– 65% North Sea natural gas production

***
– 96.5% North Sea crude oil production

***
– 47% Open cast coal production

***
– 81% Coal reserves at sites not yet in production

***
– 62% Timber production (green tonnes)

***
– 46% Total forest area (hectares)

***
– 92% Hydro electric production

***
– 40% Wind, wave, solar production

***
– 60% Fish Landings (total by Scottish vessels)

***
– 55% Fish Landings (total from Scottish waters)

***
– 30% Beef herd (breeding stock)

***
– 20% Sheep herd (breeding flock)

***
– 9% Dairy herd

***
– 10% Pig herd

***
– 15% Cereal holdings (hectares)

***
– 20% potato holdings (hectares)

***
All with 8.3% of the population!

With Welsh and Irish figures added, I wonder what England has to offer?
There are very few countries in the WORLD that rival Scotland’s resources per head and in such rich diversity. We absolutely, unequivocally can be an extremely successful independent country.

 
Last year Scotland generated 56.8 billion in taxes from everything that we generate in the country eg oil, gas, income tax, export tax etc yet we got 26.8 billion from Westminster to run the country for the same year.

 
Does that sound to you like we’re going to have any kind of “Black Hole” ?

And remember; Scotland represents just 8.3% of the UK population.

SCOTTISH NATIONAL PARTY CLEAN SWEEP

SNP graphic

The majority of Scots want this!

SCOTTISH NATIONAL PARTY CLEAN SWEEP

The SNP could win all 59 Scottish seats in the General Election, new polling data has suggested.

It is very unlikely this would happen given liberal support in the islands and highlands but it does show Scottish Labour being wiped out completely in fact the Tory party might even push them into third place, how funny would that be?

The latest and final Ipsos MORI poll for STV News puts support for Nicola Sturgeon’s party at 54%, up by two percentage points on the last poll, with Labour trailing on 20%, down from 24%.

Support for the Conservatives has increased by five points to 17% while the Liberal Democrats are on 5%, up one point, the Greens are on 2%, down by two points, Ukip are polling at 1%, with support for other parties also at 1%.

Using these figures, the Electoral Calculus website predicts that the SNP would take all 59 seats in Scotland.

Ipsos MORI questioned 1,071 people between April 22 and 27 on how they would vote if there were a Westminster General Election tomorrow.

Spot the deliberate mistakes;

MPs are so wonderful! am I right?

 

Spot the deliberate mistakes;
MPs always tell the truth!
MPs are not greedy for money!
MPs are pillars of society!
MPs are caring and never lie!
MPs are not in it to get out of it what they can!
MPs love the voters!
MPs are human!

It must not be underestimated what people in power will do to stay there – The sky is the limit!

BBC BIAS IS RELENTLESS

BBC BIAS IS RELENTLESS

BBC bias graphic

According to the BBC this is 100 people? Although 13,000 were actually there!

The BBC bias is relentless in their news and their news app – the bias is so bad now the BBC are going back months to dig up past news items which attempt to slay the SNP.

 

In the BBC app itself the political bias is so bad you simply turn it off, there is absolutely no balance or impartiality, not even a pretend one – so called professional journalists are slating in the same old way, I won’t mention any names but it’s obvious enough as it’s the same old grubby writers who have been slating Scotland and the SNP for years.

 

I think many of these grubby writers have an axe to grind against Scotland or the SNP, but either way they should know that what goes around comes around and it will not miss them.
Since last year we voters in Scotland are being systematically abused and subjected to an avalanche of hatred for both us the voters who live here and also our past “First Minister”, and also our existing “First Minister”, and it’s no coincidence the Tory party told their MPs not to call the SNP the “Scottish Government”, even although we have been overseen by the Scottish Government for years.
The Tory party is now stirring up hatred between Scotland and England simply because in Scotland we recognised years ago the Tories live to abuse society and money is their driving force especially for their own pockets.

 

They have absolutely nothing to lose in Scotland so that is why they are throwing sticks and stones from over the border and as the sitting government using the might of the security services, the BBC and the media to play and practice dirty tricks that work and can be used again in the future and more importantly against the voting public.

 

The Tories are according to Monty Python a dead duck, etc…in Scotland, why! oh! why! can the rest of the U.K. not see this?
Six months ago according to the Tory, Lib Dem, and Labour parties Scotland was the bees knees and they loved us and didn’t want us to run our own affairs – they needed Scotland to remain in the United Kingdom.
We now find that having a voice and being able to vote is not what they meant at all – they are telling anyone that will listen that Scotland is toxic for the U.K. What?
Are they saying Scotland will do as they are told?
or perhaps Scotland’s MPs do not have a right to vote in the House of Commons?
What they are actually saying is; all these political parties who feel aggrieved and have less than X amount of seats have no right to vote on decisions that will change the outcome irrespective of what the vote is for.

This is why the English MPs for English votes is not only wrong, it is undemocratic and is surely enough to stop the Bill!
If they bring out such a Bill they will have to bring out another three similar Bills to cover Scotland, Wales and Ireland which will surely lead to independence in the long run.
Twelve days from now is the vote in Scotland to select as many SNP candidates as possible and with any luck the SNP who are good for Scottish voters will get the amount of seats needed to waken up the undemocratic and backward House Of Commons.
What dirty and nasty tricks has the establishment yet to wreak on Scotland before the 7th of May elections? Is vote rigging an option? Of course it is!
Bias reporting from the BBC, ITV, SKY and all the newspapers except the Sunday Herald and the National will bombard us all with imaginary problems.
Meanwhile the English voters are not subject to actual National news any longer (the Government put the brakes on that one years ago) as at one time irrespective of where you lived you got the whole of the National news, bias? Yes! but at least if you stayed in the Outer Hebrides you knew exactly what the National news was in London for example – our existing government has played very dirty games over the last year with respect to voting – why would they stop now when they have the English running scared and disorientated ???

POLITICAL SUICIDE BY TORIES IN SCOTLAND

cowboys

This lot want Scottish MPs barred from voting in English subjects!

POLITICAL SUICIDE BY TORIES IN SCOTLAND

Political suicide by Tories in Scotland especially after today’s fiasco.
The idiots are now screaming about the voting system and wanting Scottish MPs to be disqualified from voting in English only votes? At present they are doing their best to rush it through – waken up Scottish Tories they have left you like rats from a sinking ship!

 
Now as far as I can see it; William Hague started the ball rolling on this by abusing his position in the Conservative/ Lib Dem government – if I could see this abuse of position how many more recognised William Hague should never have raised these questions while he was in a responsible position in the Conservative/Lib Dem government. It raises the question why did William Hague abuse his Government position?

 
Let’s look at the ramifications of this idiotic idea – if Scotland’s MPs are getting disqualified does this mean the Welsh MPs and the Irish MPs will also be disqualified? After all we are now supposed to be the cosy United Kingdom and all supposedly one big happy family.

 
Take a simple vote; we all know the NHS is under pressure in Scotland and somewhere along the line a vote is certain to come up concerning this which in all probability will have a knock on effect in Scotland and because of the continued financial starvation from South of the border Scottish MPs would need to vote according to the cloth the Scottish Government would need to cut for the NHS in Scotland to survive – if these ideas about Scottish MPs being disqualified from voting in such selected votes Scotland will suffer, thanks to the stupid suggestions made by the party Scotland got rid of years ago, the Tories! But worse still is the facts that Scots MPs maybe barred was started by a Tory breaking the rules while in a job of responsibility.

 
The only thing this tells us of certain is; the Tory party have completely given up their attempts to get seats in Scotland – why else would they commit to this political suicide?

 
The disgraced Tories are trying to incite hatred between the North and the South and meanwhile are trying to scare the English about the SNP – if this fear and hatred continue from the Tories surely the English voters are smart enough to see their nasty tricks, are they?

Westminster the so called home of democracy are wanting to prove to the Scots, democracy is not for the Scots – only for the English!

English Voters Must Be Stupid

voterigging graphic

We are trying to scare the English voters now that the Scots have called our bluff!

English Voters Must Be Stupid!

 

Anyone in England reading this Scottish Blog only has to ask themselves why the Tory party has been posted missing in recent weeks, they have no plans and no ideas for the future other than ripping off the poor to pay even more to their rich friends in banking services English voters must be stupid not to see it!

.

Labour only has poor Ed their leader who is utterly clueless, where is the other bunch of clueless MP’s?

Yesterday our female First Minister kicked both of these hapless wonders into the long grass, they just don’t know how to handle her at all and shows they are not the people who should be in charge of Scotland not alone the UK.

The SNP are now the most popular party in the UK mainly because austerity has failed everyone except of course the super rich.

Ed said this morning THERE WOULD BE NO DEALS WITH THE SNP to which the BBC’s Bill Turnball said “THAT’S GOOD” sorry “I mean, that’s clear“. nothing like national BBC Bias reporting or perhaps just a simple slip, yeh right!

The big danger for both the Tory and Labour leadership is ignoring the will of the people of Scotland after the election, if they say 40 SNP MP’s makes no difference to the Westminster system then why are we there at all.

If that happens say bye bye to the union for ever, if we cant play our part or not allowed to what’s the point of trying to stay together as a equal partner, we never was, they only wanted us to stay so they can pillage our rich natural resources.

They only way to fight back is by voting for the SNP so David and Ed can deliver the freedom at the next indy vote where Westminster wont have a clue how to defend the union which now proves we were never an equal partner or ever will be in their eyes!

UKIP SHOCKS VOTERS

graphic of GClark

The man who wants to destroy unborn babies with infant disabilities…

 

UKIP SHOCKS VOTERS

 

UKIP have a candidate pushing to represent voters – his name is Geoffrey Clark.

 

 

Geoffrey Clark in his push for Kent County Council wants to abort all babies that will be a burden on the state according to his manifesto, so this means any baby with a disability.

 

That is Mothers with foetuses detected to have Down’s syndrome and other disabilities should be forced into a compulsory abortion.

His ideas, published on his website, state: “Consider compulsory abortion when the foetus is detected as having Downs, Spina Bifida or similar syndrome which, if it is born, will render the child a burden on the state as well as on the family.” He also wants free euthanasia for the over-80s. – what exactly does free euthanasia mean in moral terms? Since when did an infant disability ever be a burden to loving parents?

 

Can someone please tell me how a weasel like this can be anywhere near being chosen to represent any voters – surely the people of Kent do not agree with this tripe.

 

UKIP should distance themselves miles from this evil character – when a child is born, we as adults have a duty to that child and that should include people like this – God help our children and our old people if this kind of person ever gets into a position of responsibility.

TORIES ARE GOING GA-GA!

Tory Bichard

Tory Lord says that pensioners are;
A NEGATIVE BURDEN ON SOCIETY!!!

TORIES ARE GOING GA-GA!

 
It’s true; – the Tories are going ga-ga! and going out of their way to attempt to hide the latest twaddle from their back room boys.

 
The Tories have dragged out an old fossil windbag who is also a Lord who suggests;
Old people are a “negative burden on society”, and also suggests they should lose their pensions if they refuse to do community work. The first line of his comment said; quote; older people who are not very old??? I kid you not this guy is a Lord! but the unbelievable part is this guy retired at the grand old age of 54…and he has only turned up himself for work at the House of Lords a third of what he should have! I smell hypocrite!
The pension in question is earned and a proportion is forcibly removed and put into that invisible pot each time a worker gets wages – which in latter years is expected to look after the pensioner( via state pension) who has sweated blood in some cases for over 50 years.
The pension in question belongs to the person after proving themselves over the qualifying years of 50 years maximum.

 
The pension in question is not in any shape or form the governments, so for any pensioner who has earned their pension and the government takes x amount off is nothing more than legalised theft in any circumstance.

 
Any half-wit knows that if they are going to destroy old-age pensions or state pensions it has to be done transitionally and not by rhetoric or brute force theft.

 
We see the new method and introductions of exposing pensioners to do what they like with their pensions (watch the 45% tax reductions) and the greater majority do NOT have these pension pots which are available to the minority – the majority only have the state pension to rely on in their latter years.

 
The pensions skulduggery which we now see are planned by the Tories/Liberal Dem and goodness knows who else needs to be reviewed, shelved for ever, and added to that documentation which will see Social Justice put into first place in the priority stakes.

 
It boils down to simple facts; these are,
a pen pushing Lord has been made scapegoat to spout rhetoric about old people and those on state pension – it does not matter that many pensioners cannot afford to heat their homes or cannot afford to eat properly.

 
Pensioners 50 years ago agreed to have x amount taken from their wages knowing that when they did reach pension age they had established an amount of money which paid for their NHS and their old age or State Pension.

 
Unfortunately in the U.K. today a worker starting off in giving to British society can no longer expect safety nets to be in place because the Tory/Lib Dems destroyed the safety net which was better known as the “Welfare State”, – to make sure tomorrows pensioners have money set aside in their old age they are expected to save accordingly for their future, a situation which was forced on the pensioner from fifty years ago via the NHS and state pension scheme.

 
Many people saving for old age today will be frightened of the future as so many goalposts have been moved over the years to accommodate incompetent politicians who have as much idea of running the country as they have of being able to boil an egg – I won’t start to name them as it would take a volume the size of War and Peace.

 
My final comment is;
if pensioners are such a burden then the House of Lords , House of Commons can lead by example and start to live on the State Pension – what say you, oh, Vote for Me, politicians! The government seems to be trying to pretend that the State pension is a benefit. It is not it is a scheme that people pay into or have already paid into to fund their retirement, it is in no way a hand out!
