Theresa May's partners in government have strong historical links with Loyalist paramilitary groups. Specifically, the terrorist group, Ulster Resistance was founded by a collection of people who went on to be prominent DUP politicians. Peter Robinson, for example, who
was DUP leader and Northern Ireland’s first minister until 2016, was an active member of Ulster Resistance. One of the things the group did was collaborate with other terrorist organisations such as the Ulster Volunteer Force to smuggle arms into the UK, including RPG rocket
launchers. It’s also important to know their(DUP) politics. When Enoch Powell was expelled from the Tory party after his fascist turn, he moved to Northern Ireland. There, his campaign manager was a young man named Jeffrey Donaldson, who says on his website:
There is a council by-election taking place in Coatbridge South on 25th October 2018. The local SNP team are looking for support to help them take a seat for the SNP, and candidate Lesley Mitchell.Before you consider who you'll be voting for lets take a wee look back to
Feb. this year- 'Former North Lanarkshire Councillor David Fagan was convicted on Thursday after sending messages about incest and child abuse to an officer posing as a single mother.'-Sheriff Frank Pieri told jurors the evidence heard at the trial had been “frankly repulsive”.
Mr Fagan, 53, was Mr Leonard’s agent in the 2016 Holyrood election in Airdrie & Shotts.His job was to manage Mr Leonard’s election campaign and, in particular, its finances.
Mr Leonard failed to win the seat, but entered parliament as a Central Scotland list MSP.
On reflection TSTV- Business for Scotland, a pro independence business forum, have highlighted some of what they call: “the key
broken promises made by the No campaign to the people of Scotland:”
Renewables promise -
Ed Davey, the then UK energy secretary, said:
“Scotland could lose billions in renewable energy subsidies with a Yes vote and
would put our green energy revolution at risk”. Davey claimed that 33 per cent of UK subsidies for wind, wave and tidal projects (£530m a year) came to Scotland and so independence would
‘slam the brakes on wind farm projects’. Now drastic cuts to the public
funding of onshore wind-farms have been announced which Renewables Scotland claim could reduce Scotland’s economy by £3 billion.
Carbon Capture promise -
The use of the prerogative power to invoke Article 50 of the TEU has been much discussed since the Brexit vote on 23 June 2016 (including this initial post on the matter and a follow-up post). The present author believes that only an
Act of Parliament can be used to invoke Article 50 but if I am mistaken then a very interesting route to Scottish independence potentially opens up.
If the UK government were to persist in arguing that the Prerogative can be used to trigger Article 50 and that submission were
to be upheld by the courts then that will logically lead to a conclusion that Westminster will not welcome: that the Prerogative can be used to dissolve the Union between Scotland and England.
To understand why we must look at the often overlooked legal mechanics of the union
How Colonial Control is Maintained 1. Routine rendering Top Secret of any UK Cabinet documents or committee proceedings that might inform Scots of their situation. Routine blocking of any FOI requests that may expose the entrenched hostility of key UK ministers to Scotland.>
2. The continued status of the UK Supreme Court as the highest court of appeal for Scots civil law.
3. The UK’s Anti-Scottish Propaganda Office, commonly known as the Scotland Office, whose £7.2 million budget is used to convince Scots that any economic successes are due to
the UK Govt, and to discredit both the Scottish Govt and Parliament. The Scottish Office Minister has consistently refused to account for his time or how he spends his massive budget.>
Situated in Ayrshire, Prestwick Airport offers not only uninterrupted access to the Western hemisphere, it sits where the cold air of the surrounding low lying hills meets the warmer air of the sea and the resulting
uprising bores a hole through mist and fog. It’s Europe’s only all year clear weather airport. Heathrow on the other hand, suffers constant delays and cancellations due to bad weather. These facts alone, beg the question – why is Prestwick not the UK’s second major international
In 1933 little was known about the effects of extreme cold or lack of oxygen on planes and pilots but two Scots, the then Marquess of Douglas and Clydesdale and Flight Lieutenant David F MacIntyre ignored the unknown dangers and flew over Mount Everest in two tiny
