Gangsterism and corruption in Glasgow

“Strathclyde Police is expected to reject calls from SNP MP John Mason for a criminal probe into Glasgow City Council, BBC Scotland understands.

It follows a decision by Audit Scotland to also reject calls from Mr Mason to investigate the council under the leadership of Steven Purcell.”

One wonders what Audit Scotland and Strathclyde Police are scared of finding? Is the reach of the West of Scotland Labour Party such that even the law-enforcers run a million miles from them?

For all the good that the Labour Party in general has done nationally – the NHS to the minimum wage – it’s unfortunate, in fact criminal, that people in the West of Scotland have seen the party descend into sectarianism, corruption, nepotism and sleaze. These latest revelations should see the party unelectable in Glasgow but the media have simply not covered this story in enough detail for the electorate to be fully aware.

Great credit in this goes to SNP MP John Mason. It is Mason who has faced a network of compliant media, cowardly politicians, corrupt officials, inadequate police force and mobster trade unions all indulging in a conspiracy of silence over this issue. For this reason alone, he deserves to be re-elected for Glasgow East in the next election.

Jocks and Afghan police in hot pursuit of Taliban


Jocks and Afghan police in hot pursuit of Taliban

A Military Operations news article

20 Dec 10
A joint rapid response effort has seen British and Afghan forces work in partnership to drive out Taliban insurgents in a decisive and telling public show of force.

During the recent incident, the Afghan National Police (ANP) Commander on duty at Check Point Schoolhouse, around 30km east of Helmand's capital of Lashkar Gah, reported seeing a gathering of insurgents.
The insurgents were in a compound near Route 601, the main road that connects the city of Lashkar Gah to the rest of Afghanistan. The perception of security and freedom of movement is vital ground in the struggle against the violent Taliban insurgency. Any attacks against this key transit route would make locals fearful of using it and limit their ability to live normal lives and engage in commerce.
Major Nick Wight-Boycott, Officer Commanding Delta Company, 5th Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland, received the report and, realising the potential seriousness of the situation, mobilised his troops. The Jocks, as the proud Scottish soldiers of the Royal Regiment of Scotland are known, were despatched from Patrol Base Attal, on Route 601, to assist the ANP in the hope of cutting off the insurgents before they could attack.
The ANP sped off in their Ford Ranger trucks, followed by the Canterbury-based Scottish troops in their WMIK (Weapons Mounted Installation Kit) Land Rovers and Mastiff armoured vehicles. On arrival in the vicinity of the Taliban area, the Jocks of Delta Company found the ANP had already taken the initiative to strike at the Taliban gathering before they arrived.
A fierce firefight ensued, but the ANP clearly had the upper hand and, supported by the determined Brits, pushed a kilometre south of Route 601 in hot pursuit of the now fleeing Taliban fighters.

It was clear afterwards that the prompt action taken by the ANP had caught the insurgents off-guard and resulted in the success of the operation.
In their haste to leave the compounds they had been using, the Taliban fighters left behind a motorbike they had been using for 'dicking' - observing Afghan and British forces in the area in order to plan offensive activity. The ANP were able to capture the motorbike which will be logged as evidence and forensically examined to aid future operations against the insurgency.
Major Wight-Boycott said of the operation:
"Delta Company are here to protect the people of Helmand and support the Afghan Police, reconnecting the ANP with their community and helping them fight a vicious insurgency.
"In the morning we conducted local community engagement with the ANP; in the afternoon we were shoulder to shoulder with them in hot pursuit of the Taliban. Every day the ANP demonstrate they are growing in capability and confidence."

 Just watched this performance from Kenny Gibson on The Daily Politics, well done Kenny, we need so much more of this kind of pugnacious delivery from now to next May as the BBC are becoming more and more rabid by the day. Their latest hobby horse trying to stir up racist hatred and get students out on Scotland’s streets is a downright disgrace. They are now, along with the Times and the rest of the unionist bugles telling lies. 

Andrew Neil tried to put the boot into Kenny but got it shoved down his fat throat. I have never seen a more ridiculous looking head of hair on a man as Neil aka Brillo has, if it is hair? How can anyone keep a straight face talking to a vain fat baldy git like that, with welded on hair?

The Tory Toff Bone backed down on his lying claims that Scotland is subsidised when fronted up by Kenny. 

The posh bitch whose name I do not intend to remember was skewered and trussed like a Turkey, when she came over all patronising about being “pelted with Haggis in the streets of Biggar.” I really hope she is pelted with hot dog shite in a sweaty sock. 

To be fair to Brillo he did say at the end of that section that Londoners live on caricatures, when it comes to Scots.

Thanks a million Kenny Gibson.

The first 40 minutes of Question Time last night was devoted to the student protests in London. This is a blatant disregard for the “Dimbleby Rules” set in Glasgow, Scotland when the Programme last aired there, on the 28th of October.

He repeatedly, condescendingly and wrongly told Nicola Sturgeon that she was only to raise matters that apply to the UK, and not specifically Scotland. In particular of course, Scottish Independence. The Elephant in the BBCs room which they ignore at their peril.

Student fees and education is a devolved matter and therefore last nights programme was applicable to England only.

The hypocrisy and blatant anti Scottish discrimination of the state broadcaster is patronising, discriminatory, and vile utterly totally vile.

David Dimbleby and the BBC owe Scotland and Nicola Sturgeon an apology.

I have watched every Question Time since October specifically to monitor the content in terms of the new “Dimbleby Rules.” Every one since has had at least the first half hour dedicated to English only subjects.

Listening to Radio Scotland and Kaye Adams, who is the daughter of Duncan Adams the Haulage contractor, coaching people and encouraging anti SNP comments on the bad weather. She is making a fool of herself shouting at John Swinney, with bizarre statements like "are you comfortable with Scotland being the laughing stock of the world in this weather."
OK so Poland and the rest of the continent have had no problems. A quick Google shows that is not true.
However, what has incensed me is the ignorance and selfish comments being made by some drivers about the situation, for example. One man was on moaning how he left his house on a journey that should have taken 1 hour, which took him 9 hours. He left his house at 12 midday, which was when the snow had been falling heavily for several hours. What was galling was that he said he had a 10-month-old baby and his toddler daughter in the car. He then went on to take even more of my breath away by saying that he was lucky as he stopped at a shop and got the last of their baby food. Dear God what an arse hole. As far as I am concerned, he is guilty of neglect and putting his children in harms way for no good reason. I honestly think that he made this story up to get on the radio to have a moan at the Government. Knowing the BBC and its shocking record on this I would not be surprised.
Stewart Stevenson did the Government no favours with his blundering arrogant statements on Newsnicht blame blame blame. He made an incredible blunder by saying that this weather was not forecast. BOLLOCKS. Get a grip Stevenson you have become the liability that the SNP does not need.
Stevenson listen up. There is not enough equipment to deal with bad weather in Scotland, not enough manpower is diverted to snow clearing. Far to many managers sitting behind their VDUs managing by remote control, and heading home at 4 o’clock. If I can know that the snow is on its way, then they can also. STOP THE BLAME GAME.

Recently we have seen in this country someone saying that “cloned” beef is harmless. How do they know?

Monsanto and a few other companies are still pushing ahead with the other side of this Frankenstein industry in their Genetically Modified foods industry, which stands to make the billions. You and I are not factored in to their thinking. However thank God some people are on their tail.

Recently a good friend succumbed to cancer and it was during this time and in conversation with others that I realised how widespread this disease is, how complex it is, and how almost every one alive will know someone who dies from it. Apparently one in three deaths are now from cancer in some form.


“ The Idiot Cycle” film was made by UCLA undergrad and film school alum, Emmanuelle Schick Garcia. It is a serious film about cancer and how chemical companies not only profit from making the chemicals that cause cancer, but also profit from selling the drugs that treat cancer.

These same companies are now developing genetically modified crops, which have never been tested for long term health impacts like cancer. Along with the development of these non-natural food products, has been the creation of an infrastructure to support and supplement their efforts to literally modify the patterns of nature.

As our writer April Scott noted in her article, Feeding the Hungry or Population Control?

Russian scientists are not the only ones that have warned of noted health effects caused by genetically modified foods. Let us not forget that the scientists that were fired after they discovered serious health effects in animals after feeding them GM food products.

Believing in the potential of GM foods, UC Berkeley’s Ignacio Chapela and Arpad Pusztai, a plant genetic modification expert from Scotland Rowett Research Institute, were commissioned to conduct the first independent study on animals fed GM foods.

Studies showed stunted growth, impaired immune systems, bleeding stomachs, abnormal and potentially pre-cancerous cell growth in the intestines, impaired blood cell development, misshaped cell structures in the liver, pancreas and testicles, altered gene expression and cell metabolism, liver and kidney lesions, partially atrophied livers, inflamed kidneys, less developed organs, reduced digestive enzymes, higher blood sugar, inflamed lung tissue, increased death rates and higher offspring mortality as well.

The film focuses on six major companies: Dow Chemical, Bayer, BASF, Monsanto, Dupont, and Astrazeneca. It was filmed in eight countries, including the U.S.

The Idiot Cycle just won the “Green Report” award and it played to a sold-out audience during France’s biggest anti-GMO trial in October. It has been screened at the biggest documentary festivals in the world to packed theatres. Just some of the highlights include:
  • RIDM in Montreal and IDFA in Amsterdam
  • the Slow Food movement premiered the film in Italy
  • Verve Girl (Toronto) has compared it to Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth”
  • Global TV called it a “must see” documentary
  •  major universities from University of Oxford to Universit√© de Toulouse have screened the film, a few universities have even had multiple screenings
  • the United Nation’s IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer) is organizing a special screening for their staff.
The buzz surrounding this film has been completely by word-of-mouth, since the film was made without a distributor or TV support. After its European premiere in Amsterdam it was signed to a French TV distributor. European TV dates start early 2011.

The revelations are shocking; a former Monsanto attorney who as a judge, consistently hears cases involving Monsanto, exclusively ruling in their favor in spite of what could only be called highly corroborated scientific evidence, to the contrary.

The clips that are included with this article, in addition to the actual trailer, give you a very good idea of what this movie is about. It is essential, it is mandatory for all people in this world to see. GMO’s are being forced into Africa under the notion that they will help “Feed the World” and it is money grubbing political propaganda at best.

The Idiot Cycle exposes the minimal amount of testing that has taken place and reveals how even in the long run, the most extended periods available to gauge are only four years. The onset of cancer is frequently fifteen to twenty years down the road for victims.

"How to Survive a Scottish Winter Which May Last a Few Days"

Sometimes just sometimes a wee post pops up on the Scotsman forum that has me spraying coffee over the VDU. The post below is to me just so topical and on message right now as we witness the bleating and baying whipped up by the BBC and the MSM about the weather. If I see one more f/wit reporting from Altnaharra on the BBC, I will surely break the screen.

And then we had the minister for snow on yesterday who seems to wink at you as he talks, teling us that our weather is different from the continetals as they know when they will get winter! Dear Jesus save me from these Winking Humphreys, who apparently know things that we don't.

A snow flake is spotted drifting past the window of the BBCs DGs office in London, and the klaxons go of as the boak machine cranks up the anti and sends Greedy Fat Bastards flying into the supermarkets stuffing their trollys with pizzas and TV dinners, then they q up to fill their 4x4s which have run on 1/4 tanks all year up to the brim with fuel. So now we have Mr and Mrs Greedy Fat Bastard lugging around 75% more fuel than they need so putting pressure on the supply chain just when Mr and Mrs Greedy Fat Bastard finds themselves slithering all over the road as they are to selfish to drive with due care and attention. The owning of a 4x4 seems to give these Greedy fat Bastards legitimacy to drive as if only they are on the roads.


From the Scotsman forum:

Mac the Naif,

"And none the doubt if this cold snap goes on, we will all die of starvation, and a lack of fuel"

Just remember Charles, eat the thin ones first, keep the plump ones for last.

And if you do run out of fuel - just think of the human body as meaty sushi.

(those tips were taken from my new book "How to Survive a Scottish Winter Which May Last a Few Days)

The British government have, by insulting us, granted the opportunity for us to vote for independence in May 2011. Their insulting referendum for AV for the British parliament on the same day as our Scottish elections, whilst denying Scots a referendum to vote for Scottish Indpendence has gifted us the chance to VOTE FOR INDEPENDENCE AT WESTMINSTERS EXPENSE.

This at a time when Wales has been granted a referendum, on their constitution, and now we see a Royal wedding one week before our elections, which is guaranteed to wipe Scottish politics of the meida. This would never have been contemplated one week before the UK elections. It is an insult to far.







My thoughts on Newsnicht are unprintable. Surely on such a momentous occasion AS YESTERDAY WAS SUPPOSED TO BE FOR SCOTLAND, it justified a programme from Edinburgh with the party leaders on a live programme. Credit is due to Brewer who did make an attempt at getting the un answered questions aired. But Mundell and the rest of them just regurgitated the same old boak inducing guff that Moore has sent out. Listening to Mcneil agreeing with a Tory has surely confirmed Labours credentials. Treacherous. They will and can do nothing to protect Scotland from this divisive bill. The holes in Calman are obvious for even a primary school child; I just pray that the SNP get a strong vote in May to exploit them to the full, this is the end game.

But back to Newsnicht. The programme format is now, in order to deflect claims of bias, that you get the SNP point of view on at the beginning as a recorded package and then you have the two or three opposition points of view on the live piece and give them their heads with no prospect of reply. There is effectively no SNP voice. The opposition however, will have been able to review the SNPs recorded piece and build their points on that. Biased, bungling, amateur, propaganda.

Scot Independent.
