I’ve been publishing datasets for 5 years now

Not one single mainstream Scottish politician has even retweeted them

Not one!

They show the horrific state of our finances

I don’t give a fuck if we vote Indy. I’ll be living in England by then

Countries get the

Politicians they deserve. If Scotland wants a country run by sexual deviants, Liars, Thieves, Criminals, Anti Semites etc etc then that’s what it will get

I won’t be bothered in the least because by then I’ll be living in England and will do what I can to inform the English

just how much Scotland, Wales and NI have ripped them off and constantly complain than the English don’t subsidise them enough

According to the Regional ONS report England has given the rUK around £425bn over the last 21 years

Not only did England have to borrow this

money to give to them for free but it also has to pay the interest on that money as well!

So. I say to all the moaners and cranks who want to break up the UK, be careful what you wish for

England is an economic powerhouse, held back by the Moaning Scots, Cringing Welsh

and Mental Irish

The best gift you could ever give to the English is the excuse for them to tell you all to fuck off and that they’re not going to help pay for your bills any longer

You have been warned.

In 2018/19 England gave the rUK the sums of around £36.4bn for free. For 2019/20 England gave the rUK around £42-£44bn for free (The ONS dataset hasn’t been released yet)

These are colossal sums of money that England is giving away. Just to keep the rUK happy

Lying in the Workplace

Everyone who works has told lies in the workplace. You might have covered up for a colleague or lied about why you were late

Everyone does it, but these lies have little consequence

However, lying about the big things does

If you lied to your boss

about how much work you did for a client could get you sacked

Lying to your board of directors about the financial state of your company could get you sacked and possibly investigated by the police

Lying about the future prospects of the division you lead could get you


Lying about your pupils in your school could get you sacked

In virtually every walk of like you can get sacked for lying in the workplace, with one exception


Politics appears to be the only profession where you can easily get away with lying

Indy Scotland. This is how it goes

Scotland becomes independent in a referendum. 62% to 38%

Even before the referendum property prices have fallen and the financial industry has started to relocate to England. Wealthier Scots with liquid assets have moved them to England

The emotion pull of Independence has proved too much for the unionists. The young vote for it in their droves. Nicola Sturgeon has said that Scotland will be a model for other societies. Welcoming, inclusive and outward looking

But clouds are on the horizon

The Tories

have stated time and time again that Scotland’s finances are in a perilous state but the SNP say it’s just propaganda

The SNP say that they will use the pound and no one can stop them

Within a few weeks of the vote, the reality bites. Since Scotland will become

This video is pretty shocking. Here we have Sturgeon lying through her teeth to @afneil and unfortunately he missed it

Sturgeon tell Andrew Neil that Scotland has sent some £300bn to the treasury in oil revenues. That’s simply not true

She’s not only deliberately lying but she’s also putting out a number without telling anyone what it means

For a start, Scotland’s oil revenues since 1980 were £162bn so where does the £300bn come from?

She’s using the real value of oil (after inflation) instead of the

cash value of oil, but where does she get this data from?

Turns out that she got it from GERS and Historic GERS. The accounts that the Nationalists say isn’t accurate which makes it odd that she would quote it

It also turns out that she got her number wrong. As of 2018/19

How have the SNP managed to stay so high in the polls despite so many things going backwards in Scotland?

Easy. They’ve invoked the Scottish equivalent of the Palestinian protocols

For those not au fait with the Middle East this is how it works

Palestinians see the

Israelis as their enemy. An enemy to be hated, vilified, despised and attacked at every opportunity

In Scotland the SNP are the Palestinians and the Tories are the Israelis

To hate Tories in Scotland under the SNP isn’t only totally normal but it is also to be encouraged

This hatred of Israelis is so inculcated into their psyche that Palestinians see absolutely nothing wrong in murdering Israelis. It doesn’t matter what age or sex. Even children are to be murdered and when these murders happen the Palestinian authorities actually pay the

The War Between the Virus and Humanity

COVID-19 has driven much of Europe into a state of desperation and panic

Italy and Spain are in lockdown and France has ordered all Bars, Restaurant, Theatres etc to be closed

Has there been a mass extinction?

Has there been millions

of Casualties

Has civilisation descended into chaos and Anarchy?

The answer to all three is No

Europe has fallen into mass panic about a virus that will probably kill 1-2% of those who catch it

Most of the people who will die are likely to be elderly

and in poor health or have underlying health problems

Tonight, around 200 scientists and medical experts have written to the Government questioning their strategy on the virus and asking them to change course

Before I go into the details of the strategy let me take you

The abject failure of the Unionist cause in Scotland

Most, if not all of you, will now be aware of the latest opinion polls showing support at independence at around the 50% mark or just above that

The primary reason for this is Brexit. Since most people in Scotland

want to stay in the EU then this makes more of them look at the possibility of independence, which is understandable to some degree

Despite the polls moving more towards independence it is actually further away than it was last week


The Law. The EU would not even

countenance any form of recognition for any type of referendum that was not legally watertight and recognised by WM

That has come as a shock to the SNP and their followers as they thought that the EU would disregard everything they believe in for the sake of Scotland
