Will The SNP Shenanigans In Parliament Put Scots Off Voting For Independence?

    I don’t think the majority of Scots will vote for independence when push comes to shove. I really don’t. I know the polls keep shifting on this but that’s all the more reason I am convinced that it won’t happen.

    Watching Blackford making an idiot of himself yet again in Parliament, only confirms my opinion. The SNP (and especially him) are an embarrassment in Westminster. It’s a wonder the rest of the MPs are not supporting independence, if only to get rid of Blackford & crew, LOL!

      I’m inclined to agree that most people will not vote for independence, but with the “right” (wrong!) propaganda push, we just don’t know.

      The SNP need to change their name and get on with just putting right the damage they’re doing to the country, notably in the NHS and education where their record is dismal.

    I don’t think indyref2 will pass either. However, I remember being shocked when I saw Peter Kearney, spokesman for the Scottish Bishops openly supporting the SNP and when I tried to find something about it, I came across this which I hadn’t read before. It’s even more shocking because Kearney was acting as a spokesman for the SNP’s Jim Sillars, at the same time he was a spokesman for the Bishops (still is, for the Bishops, as far as I know – not sure about the SNP)

      I remember we discussed Peter Kearney’s open support for the SNP on this blog, pointing out that this had to be the position of the Bishops or he’d not have dared to take up such a blatant political stance in public.

      Given the SNP’s pursuit of cultural change, their determination to legalise everything in sight as long as it is anti-God’s law, this is yet another scandal, another attempt to mislead Catholics in Scotland and edge them well away from everything that is truly Catholic. There will be a heavy price for Kearney & Co. to pay one day.

    Ian Blackford, Humpty Dumpty, makes we, the people of Scotland look very stupid. Why? That we elect such people to be our parliamentary representatives is shameful.

    Philp Tartaglia’s letter on behalf of the Bishop’s of Scotland, and so the Catholics of Scotland, to Alec Salmond in 2010 was shameful.

    Peter Kearney’s position in the SNP party and the role given by the Bishop’s Conference, Judas Iscariot will be jealous of!

    As Fr Stephen Dunn pointed out in his recent letter, the Bishops in Scotland have become obedient to, subservient to, political powers, something stated that we musn’t do as practicing Catholics. Why are they acting contrary to Catholic teaching and law; You, the people, need to write to them asking a full explanation. If they don’t give you a satisfactory explanation, write again, and again, (it is hard work) until you do. These are the times we are in. If you have to, publish their replies here, detailing were it fails to answer the point/s you raised.

    Regarding Scottish Independance, I pray that God never allows that great evil to fall upon us.

      With respect, I wouldn’t waste ink on Scotland’s largely apostate hierarchy. They simply do not have the Catholic Faith, so no point in banging our heads against a brick wall. The lot of them want to take themselves off to the church of Scotland where they rightly belong instead of destroying the Catholic religion from within.

        You’ve reminded me of the shocking occasion when Cardinal Keith Patrick O’Brien (deceased) attended the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland and lamented the fact that he was unable to received Communion at their “beautiful” service because, he said, of his own Church’s discipline (words to that effect).

        The implication was that there was really no difference between what they were receiving as “Communion” and ours so he either didn’t know that Presbyterians believe they are receiving bread and wine as a kind of “spiritual” communion, until our belief in the Real Presence – Christ, truly present in the Sacred Species, Body, Blood, Soul & Divinity, under the appearance of bread and wine.

        So, I think you are, sadly, correct. The Bishops of Scotland – and most of the clergy – would be more at home in the C of S.

      Scots Padre,

      I’m pleased that you mention Fr Stephen Dunn’s letter – I hope every priest in the Archdiocese of Glasgow (if not throughout Scotland) paid heed to it and felt suitably ashamed at their own failure to stand up and be counted. I am assuming that your appearance here is your own way of doing exactly that – in which case, welcome!

      I’ve given up writing to bishops and, indeed, politicians. It’s a waste of time and energy. They are all – and I mean this literally, not as hyperbole – they are all Godless.

    There is no real opposition to the SNP. The other parties are sublime examples of stupidity and political incompetence. The most recent example being Douglas Ross, leader of the Tories, stating publicly “that we could not use all our fish” even as our negotiators were still arguing to regain our EEZ and our fish from the grasp of the EU.
    Until quite recently the main opposition parties, Labour and Tory, as well as the Greens, were led by sexual perverts. A balanced sensible approach to anything was therefore unlikely. It is hard to see how any Catholic could vote for any of these parties, or for the SNP. As for the Lib/Dems…

      Totally agree. I have spoilt my ballot paper for years now, leaving a message for the candidates which has been completely ignored, of course, but which allowed me to leave the polling station, head held high, air of superiority in place as I looked disdainfully at the idiots around me who haven’t yet realised that if their voted counted, they wouldn’t have been given it. 😀

      Seriously, there is no political party worthy of power over us. Not one.

        I absolutely agree. What the UK as a whole needs now is a completely new political structure, one that is patriotic (not Nationalist, which is Communism) and free of corruption. The present system is rotten, full of criminals whose crimes now extend, thanks to Covid, to crimes against humanity. Treasonous lot in the pay of the CCP!

    To go off-topic, congratulations on Brexit!

    Re Scottish independence: iirc, a few years ago HM QEII begged the Scots to stay in the UK. My 2 pence is that as long as she remains Queen, Scotland will be part of the UK. (Personally, I hope she reigns until at least 2023 – 70 years of her reign & Coronation.) AFAIK, she’s still sharp and can hold her own. Remember what she said: that her life “…long or short, shall be dedicated to your service.”
