    I really don’t see what an independent Scotland has to do with this one way or the other. The SNP is currently Scotland’s governing party, but that’s WITH the Union, not without it. In the event of independence the SNP would almost certainly pass out of existence, as it’s raison d’être would then be gone. In fact, if you really dislike the SNP, then you should actively campaign FOR independence, as that is the swiftest way to bring about the SNP’s demise. The SNP is a very, very, broad church, which is held together entirely by the independence question. It was notable that at the last Holyrood elections the first ever cracks in that coalition led to a sizeable chunk of the more socially conservative side of the party breaking away to form Alba.

    By the way, if anyone thinks the London political establishment is going to save Scotland from this nonsense then you’re living in a fantasy land, as they are completely on board with it. In addition, the number one reason why social conservatism is largely absent from Scottish politics, is because the political right in Scotland insists on remaining a creature of the wholly exceptional English conservative party. With independence achieved, and the constitutional question finally settled, normal left-right politics of the kind that exists everywhere else in Europe would be re-established. Constitutional arguments are what stands in the way of that process.

      I’m afraid, with respect, you’re living in fantasy land if you believe that there still exists a political entity in the UK called “social conservatism”. The various parties may operate under various names to deceive but they are all culturally Marxist at heart. They are all pro-LGBT, all pro-abortion, all pro-Climate change, all pro-vaccination, all pro-China, all pro-pc, etc. No, True Conservatism was eradicated from the 1960s onwards by the operations of party 5th columnists. It’s cultural Marxism by any other name now, which is why they keep the political system closed to any new party that mighty threaten their grip on power.

        Well that rather proves my point don’t you think? If what you are saying is true that all the parties are irredeemably Marxist then it doesn’t matter whether Scotland is independent or not.

        I am not so sure things are as quite as bad as you say. There are definitely still some social conservatives out there, some in senior positions in politics, and in Scotland at least half of them are in the SNP – John Mason, Kate Forbes and Lisa Cameron being the most notable examples.

        You’re right, it doesn’t matter whose in power or whether or not Scotland is independent. Politics is now post-Christian in the UK as a whole and therefore utterly corrupt. And it’s not just in the UK, politics all over the world is corrupted, just look at America. No, I think we have to put our hands up now and accept that only Almighty God can restore our political institutions, and indeed the world and the Church. Things are so far gone now in terms of moral deterioration that it’s pointless even talking politics. Besides, as the COVID-19 scam-demic with its lockdowns and forced vaccinations has demonstrated so very clearly, we were only living under the illusion of a free and democratic society. Well, now the veil has been drawn back to reveal the truth, which is that we actually live under Marxist totalitarian rule – with restricted freedoms granted us every now and then.

        As for your claim that Sturgeon won the election fair and square through the democratic process, I beg to differ. I have not met a single soul who actually likes Sturgeon or the SNP, which rather contradicts all these winning votes they keep getting. My personal belief is that they’re getting the results by manipulating the voting system – by which I mean a combination of postal votes, immigrant votes and votes from incautious youth who are not old enough to be given a vote. Yes, she is a dictator and she knows how to keep hold of power.

        As for the media giving her a hard time, the very opposite is true. The Scottish media – news and newspapers – are largely behind Sturgeon. In fact they’re so in favour of her that they’ve said practically nothing about the dangers to society of the coalition the SNP are entering into with those Greens loonies. The Greens have an agenda to destroy our entire economy and Sturgeon is about to welcome a coalition with them, yet nothing from the media, no grilling interviews or red alert editorials. They’re right up to their necks with the SNP.

      The fact that the Scottish Government under the SNP is doing this is what matters to me. This was on GB News this morning. Whether it would or does happen in England is irrelevant. I don’t want this evil SNP mob to be handed any more power that they are abusing right now. The GB News presenter’s definition of a dictator applies to Sturgeon, no question about it.

        I’m not Sturgeon’s biggest fan either, but to describe her as a “dictator” is preposterous, she was overwhelmingly elected in a free and fair election, despite almost all of the Unionist media being ranged against her. You seem to imagine that in an independent Scotland the SNP would be the government, and hence have more power,, but as I have already attempted to explain, the SNP would no longer exist. The SNP contains everything within it from Bolsheviks to libertarians. The only thing which holds the party together is the campaign for independence – and for the past 14 years that coalition has been the most robust coalition in Scottish politics, the most robust coalition in Britain, and arguably the whole of Europe. What breaks that coalition permanently, is Scottish independence, because then it becomes a coalition without a cause.

        As someone who holds the default position that every nation should be self-determining, I would no more vote for Scottish independence than I would identify as a Christmas-voting turkey. No way.

        As for Sturgeon NOT being a dictator – you must be kidding. Being voted into office is no guarantee that a leader won’t turn into a dictator – Hitler was elected, remember, and was a very popular leader. As I heard Dr William Philip say during an interview on GB News, the German dictatorship didn’t begin with concentration camps, it ended with them. (Dr Philip is the Minister of the Tron Church who won the judicial review against the Scottish government’s closure of churches.)

        What is Sturgeon if not a dictator when she is permitting four year old children to be brainwashed into the nonsense – dangerous nonsense – of transgenderism, refusing to recognise the rights of parents? She is a very dangerous woman.

        Finally, for now (because it’s coffee time), one very clear piece of evidence of Sturgeon’s dictatorial tendency is her ruling about the continuation of mask wearing in shops etc, despite the pretend “freedom” permitted the population (for the next few weeks – watch this space. We are not getting out of this tyranny any time soon.)

        The masks, you see, are the one visible piece of evidence that we are continuing to be obedient. I say “we” but I mean “you” and others like you who believe the propaganda… the meek Scots who are to blame – wholly – for our continuing oppression.

        I would add to what you say by asking Chris: if she’s not a dictator, then how come we have a law now perverting infants with absolutely no public consultation or discussion prior to the new diktat? Oh yes, she’s a dictator all right.

        1 – Godwin’s law.
        2 – Contrary to popular belief Hitler never won a single election.
        3 – Having achieved power Hitler allowed no subsequent elections.
        4 – Of all national elections in Scotland to Holyrood, Westminster, local councils, and the European Parliament since 2007, the SNP have won 13 out of the last 14 elections, often overwhelmingly.
        5 – This is despite literally every single news organisation in the United Kingdom with the exception of one newspaper being Unionist.
        6 – The fact you disagree with someone’s politics doesn’t make them a dictator.
        7 – The fact someone’s politics are dreadful does not, in itself, make them a dictator.
        8 – I genuinely don’t understand what “propaganda” you believe I have succumbed to.
        9 – I would be genuinely interested to know why it is that despite your instinct to the contrary, you believe that Scotland uniquely among the nations, should be ruled by a foreign government.

        The reason why I made the initial point I did about independence, is that I believe it is wholly irrelevant to the transgender question. Athanasius has stated clearly above that he agrees with me on this point. I suspect the reason he agrees with me (and he hints at this himself) is that at least two of three Unionist parties in Holyrood would be just as enthusiastic about this transgender nonsense as the SNP is. It is entirely possible to separate the question of Scottish independence from one’s opinion on the SNP, and to conflate them in the way this blog often does generally serves to undermine your argument rather than to to sustain it. The SNP does not represent the entirety of the independence movement. I might be inclined to argue that the openly Orangist politics of the likes of Murdo Fraser and Ruth Davidson are reasons why Catholics should not vote for the Scottish Tories, and by extension the continuance of the Union, but I choose not to because that would be to conflate two quite separate concepts.

        Chris McLaughlin,

        I’d like to ask you three questions.

        1) do you approve of the SNP government allowing children of four to be indoctrinated about transgenderism and then given new names etc without parental consent? Please don’t duck by saying this goes on in England or the US – I don’t live there, I live in Scotland and so I am concerned if parental right can be done away with here. I don’t care about England or anywhere else.

        2) why do you think Nicola Sturgeon is insisting that masks still be worn in shops and public transport?

        3) related to # 2, do you really believe that Nicola Sturgeon cares about us and wants to keep us safe?

        Chris McLaughlin

        If Nicola Sturgeon is not a dictator, as you insist, then how did Scotland end up with a “gay marriage” law on the back of an online public consultation which showed that a majority of Scots overwhelmingly rejected it?

        And how come this new law to pervert 4-year olds did not go out for public consultation, or at least parental consultation? It just went into law and no one knew it was happening.

        I mean, do you seriously maintain that this corrupt woman is not a dictator?

        The nearest reply button was miles away so this is a response to your (predictable) comment about Hitler’s “election”.

        You must know that the system in Germany meant “coalition” government and that Hitler’s rise to power resulted from his Party (Nazis) winning the largest number of seats and he managing to negotiate himself into the position of Chancellor. The rest as they say (cough) is history. Literally. The point is, he didn’t come charging in on a white horse, carrying a flag, and declare himself the ruler of the land. He had a veneer of respectability – just like Mzzzz Sturgeon.

        Your interpretation of the SNP rise to power is interesting – for the sake of our English and American readers/bloggers, I would merely add that the appeal of the SNP to the false nationalism/anti-Englishness which they manage to whip up, is largely responsible (in my opinion) for their “success” in elections. The fact is, there is no Party or leader of any Party here, who is “different” enough from the SNP to be a real challenge. I argued this with the leader of the Scottish Family Party before the last Holyrood election, urging him to do what Donald Trump had done and speak the truth about the key moral issues, notably abortion, instead of taking the same position as many already elected politicians, standing against abortion “except for….” the various exceptions – rape and disablement. In other words, no different at all. Appealing (at most) to the lowest common denominator. Until we get a Scottish equivalent of Trump, we’re stuck with the same old, same old. ALL of the Parties are corrupt with the SNP standing out because of their claim to want independence. I’m not actually convinced that they DO want that, in fact. When Nicola is asked about it, there’s always a caveat. No sign of her racing down Princes Street with the saltire screaming “Freedom!” Let alone “Freedom now!”

        Now, I do not wish to encourage you to push the SNP propaganda here. I will answer your # 9 question, though, by noting that there is a uniquely friendly history in recent times between Scotland and England; we’re hardly oppressed (or weren’t until the Covid circus arrived in town) and I cannot see any benefit whatsoever in breaking from England. We already have shocking conditions under devolution, with the SNP led Government having ruined the NHS and the once proud Scottish Education System. Be assured, I have looked into the issues and my mind is fixed in this matter. I didn’t find any anti-Scottish racism when I lived (for quite a few years) in England, but I do experience anti-English racism up here. I noted it especially when I was on the streets of Glasgow during the Brexit campaign. Disgraceful. So, I will never support Scottish independence, don’t waste your energy typing out the SNP manifesto.

        This thread is about the disgraceful assault on parental rights, yet again by Sturgeon & Co. Having lost the battle to appoint State Spies in the now binned Named Person Scheme, they’re back with a different angle. THAT is why there was mention of the independence issue in the introduction – to highlight the dangers of letting the SNP loose, especially given their determination to hook up again with the EU. No, we want to see our God-given freedoms respected by a Scottish-devolved Parliament before even considering giving them more power. And a First Minister who “affirms” that she will tell the truth to a parliamentary committee rather than swear an oath to Almighty God, isn’t in the running, sorry.

        1) Absolutely not.
        2) Partly because there appear to be more votes in caution than there are in liberty, and she is very canny at reading the public mood. And secondly because she seems to be a risk-averse person by personality. Her entire political career is a history of pursuing the low-risk option.
        3) Yes, but not necessarily for altruistic reasons. I believe she is mis-informed rather than malevolent, and genuinely believes she is doing the safe thing, but she also knows there are votes in appearing competent.

      • Chris McLaughlin (@GlesgaChris)


        1 – “…we’re hardly oppressed” – Well “oppressed is a strong term, but we don’t have a government we voted for, and haven’t done for almost all the time we’ve had the vote. Ditto Brexit, which regardless on your views on the matter was rejected by Scots by two to one.

        2 – “ruined the NHS and the once proud Scottish Education System” – the objective data from the foreign based Commonwealth fund and PISA show Scotland’s health and education outcomes are superior to those in England. (Though admittedly only marginally, which is perhaps not so surprising given the overall budgets for health and education are set by te English government we didn’t vote for.)

        3 – “….State Spies in the now binned Named Person Scheme” – The named person scheme (NPS) was a rare example of the SNP getting the politics and perception wrong, rather than the core idea. The central idea of the named person scheme was to have individual responsibility in government for the welfare of children because collective responsibility produced repeated abject failures. Such as the appalling torment subjected on the child Liam Fee by his lesbian “parents”. (Do some Googling, if you can stomach it.) Literally dozens of individuals were negligently responsible for the torture that poor child endured, ultimately to the point of death, most of which was not reported in the press but included the poor boy being imprisoned in a makeshift cage, starved, physically tortured, denied medical care, and far, far, far, worse. Things that are so awful I don’t want to repeat them here, but which you should really look into into. The purpose of the NPS was to allow the obviously negligent social workers to be prosecuted and jailed rather than to be able to hide behind the corporate collective responsibility of local government and therefore avoid prosecution. The intention was that the real prospect of jail for council workers might make them pull their socks up. It was a great shame this wasn’t properly explained at the time. The law would not have empowered any individual more than they are at present as in both cases the prosecution authorities would have remained the same.

        4. “…swear an oath to Almighty God” – as far as I know Sturgeon doesn’t believe in God. I prefer that she is honest about this rather than that she pretend otherwise. If you prefer she was a hypocrite then I suppose we will just have to agree to disagree on that point.

        Listen. I just don’t have time to fight the independence battle over and over again. I will, however, nail the lie that “we don’t have a government we voted for, and haven’t done for almost all the time we’ve had the vote.” Check out this data.

        Your description of the NPS is nothing short of mischevious. Apart from the fact that the issue of incompetent social workers is just one more failure of the SNP government, and not something that should require further legislation with which to deal – believe me, if they found a social worker telling a teenager not to go on the pill, they’d sack her before tea-break. So, don’t gimme that nonsense.

        In case you don’t know though, allow me to remind you that the Named Person Scheme required that this “Named Person/Government Spy” be given information about a child before a parent, with information being withheld from a parent if deemed the “right” thing to do. That should not surprise you given the topic of this thread where a child can change their name and gender without parental involvement! The Supreme Court in London described the NPS – at least in part – as something more likely to be found in a totalitarian regime.

        No – she’s already a hypocrite (think mask incident in pub – caught!) – but I would prefer a leader who, at the very least, believes in God. For very obvious reasons.

        Now, I don’t have the time or interest in debating independence. I notice that it seems to be the one topic – or mention of topic – which brings you onto this blog. If only you had the same zeal for correcting the horrendous errors of this horrendous pontiff; if only you were half as concerned about the eco-warrior Scottish bishops who left the challenge against the Scottish Government’s closure of churches to a group of Protestant ministers, to whom, our sincere thanks. No, your occasional visits here are, more often than not, related to Scottish independence.

        Still, who knows; maybe we’ll find your opinion on Archbishop Vigano’s call to prayer and fasting over on that thread today, Vigil of the Assumption. Who knows…

    I very much agree with Athanasius. The gender movement has swept across the globe in less than six years, capturing governments, schools, the voluntary sector, retail…you name it. There are a number of reasons for this:

    1. It is being pushed by AGP males. These are men who get a sexual thrill from dressing or presenting as men. They are for the most part straight, white, middle aged and middle class males who are the most privileged in society yet claim to be the most oppressed. They have people falling over themselves to accommodate them, so good has been their propaganda machine that they are victims. They wish only to gain access to spaces where women and girls are vulnerable and possibly undressed and can do this by saying they are now women.
    2. It is an extremely well funded movement, supported by billionaires such as Martine Rothblatt and Jennifer Pritzker – both AGP men. In Britain Stonewall has been pushing it for years…once the ‘equal marriage’ battle was won, they needed to find a new source of income. This is it.
    3. Pharmaceutical companies also push this ideology for the simple reason that they want lifelong patients which means $$$$$$$$.
    4. Misogynists who wish to strip women and girls of their rights, not least the right to be the only members of their own sex class. Women now find themselves being reduced to body parts and called ‘cervix havers’ and ‘uterus owners’. This movement is determined to dehumanise women.
    5. And most sinister of all, it is being pushed by paedophiles who wish to have children take puberty blockers at a young age so that, if they consent to that, they can ‘consent’ to anything…and it keeps their bodies looking prepubescent. Yes, it IS that sick and evil!

    So many people think the transgender movement is jus about poor, little, effeminate men like Hayley Cropper. It is not. It is filled to the brim with the most anti-family, misogynistic, abusive people imaginable. It absolutely is diabolical in origin and shame on the SNP, as well as the Greens who infamously called women ‘non-men’, for pushing this satanic ideology. I have a theory it is Satan’s ultimate way of attacking Mary and her Infant Son, so misogynistic and child abusive that it is.

      Very well stated.

      What you have just described, and what we see every day manifesting before our very eyes with increasing shock, is exactly what Our Lady predicted at Quito for our time back in 1534. This prophecy ties in perfectly with the Message and Third Secret of Fatima. What we are witnessing is straight from Hell. Here’s Our Lady of Quito warning us so many centuries ago of what was coming.

      “…. I make it known to you that from the end of the 19th century and shortly after the middle of the 20th century…. the passions will erupt and there will be a total corruption of customs (morals)….

      “They will focus principally on the children in order to sustain this general corruption. Woe to the children of these times! It will be difficult to receive the Sacrament of Baptism, and also that of Confirmation…

      “As for the Sacrament of Matrimony… it will be attacked and deeply profaned… The Catholic spirit will rapidly decay; the precious light of the Faith will gradually be extinguished… Added to this will be the effects of secular education, which will be one reason for the dearth of priestly and religious vocations.

      “The Sacrament of Holy Orders will be ridiculed, oppressed, and despised… The Devil will try to persecute the ministers of the Lord in every possible way; he will labor with cruel and subtle astuteness to deviate them from the spirit of their vocation and will corrupt many of them. These depraved priests, who will scandalize the Christian people, will make the hatred of bad Catholics and the enemies of the Roman Catholic and Apostolic Church fall upon all priests…

      “Further, in these unhappy times, there will be unbridled luxury, which will ensnare the rest into sin and conquer innumerable frivolous souls, who will be lost. Innocence will almost no longer be found in children, nor modesty in women. In this supreme moment of need of the Church, the one who should speak will fall silent.”

      But we know that Our Lady has promised the victory when this time of chastisement ends in accordance with God’s providence. How it will end, and the restoration of all things in Christ begun, is known only to God, although it does seem reasonable to suspect that a great part of mankind will be wiped out by direct divine intervention. They’re in God’s face with their pride and their filth now, killing babies in the womb and perverting the youngest infants, that will bring down incredible wrath from God very soon unless there is a serious about turn. And woe betide the Church’s hierarchy which has “remained silent” while Satan corrupts the earth and ruins so many souls.

        Athanasius, thank you and it does look like the prophecies of Our Lady are coming to fruition now. People have no idea what they are dealing with, with gender ideology. JK Rowling spoke up for women and girls and how they are oppressed on the basis of their sex…and she has faced the worst abuse I have ever seen by proponents of this cult. It is absolutely diabolical. Satan is always present whenever women and children are humiliated, targeted and insulted, such is his fear and hatred of Our Lady and her Son.

    I do apologise…AGP men get a thrill from presenting as WOMEN. They were previously known as transvestites or cross dressers. Now they are included under the ‘trans umbrella’ and are allowed to enter women’s spaces where children are present, such as refuges, changing rooms and prisons. They only have to state they ‘feel’ like women and so therefore are women.

        Did you just call FOOF a boomerang?

        RCA Victor,

        I believe I did just call FOOF a boomerang! He keeps coming back for more of my cheek! No offence to you or Athanasius or Gabriel Syme or the rest, but FOOF is my all-time favourite blogger!

      Faith, I am an academic who has researched gender ideology for almost a decade. It is not being driven by women, childless or otherwise. Women are the ones fighting against it. ForWomenScotland is just one grassroots organisation trying to protect children and women from this evil. Gender ideology is being driven by men. And the only ones who can realistically stop it are men. They remain silent for the most part. Make no mistake this, along with trafficking and pornography, is part of Satan’s plan to humiliate and degrade women and children so that Our Lady and her Son are most wounded. Don’t comply by joining in.

        Your comments are going into moderation, whereas after the first comment is released your comments should be published right away. I wonder if it is because you may be using different devices, in which case the system may think you are a first-commentator. I’m not sure, but you are not being deliberately moderated and I do check regularly to release imprisoned comments be assured…

        I’d never heard of ForWomenScotland, so I quickly searched and found their site – interesting

        I just hope they stick with that issue (transgenderism) and don’t stray into the pro-abortion arena. We’re none too keen on the woman’s right to murder her unborn baby, here!

    Mmnnn….no just on my iPad Ed. My internet however is notoriously slow to load as I live out in the sticks so I am having some trouble connecting to my WordPress account. Even my Google account is playing up today. I will keep at it if I don’t throw my iPad out of the window in frustration first! It’s quite strange though as I don’t usually have much trouble using either account.

      I’m not sure that having trouble with your device, or WP account explains why you keep going into moderation. I see you’ve changed the way your username is displayed this time which is allowed, of course, but if you are changing the way you login, that will definitely mean that the system thinks you are a new blogger each time and your posts will always go into moderation.

      Just sayin… 😀

    Looks like the Great State of Texas’ Department of Family and Protective Services agrees with your/our assessment of child abuse:

      RCA Victor,

      I must check out that link shortly. First, though, here’s another interview on this subject from GB News today. The interviewee is Richard Lucas, leader of the Scottish Family Party…

        I think that interview with Richard Lucas puts paid to Chris McLaughlin’s earlier denials that the Nicola Sturgeon is a dictator. Absolutely shocking evil. We have demons running our nation.

        Excellent summary by Mr. Lucas. “Children’s rights” is a creature from the Satanic bowels of the UN, and an important part of the Luciferian mission to destroy the family. It includes snitching on your parents and friends (i.e. reporting them to the “authorities”).

        Follow-up question: what is Mr. Lucas doing about this?

        RCA Victor,

        I think he was speaking out about it on TV, if I’m not mistaken. He also (prior to lockdowns etc) organised meetings and attended meetings – if you recall, I posted a video of him challenging the SNP Secretary of State for Education at a meeting of parents where parents were not being permitted to speak!

        Here it is again…

    I note that you have failed to answer my question from yesterday, so here’s the comment again in case you simply overlooked it.

    If Nicola Sturgeon is not a dictator, as you insist, then how did Scotland end up with a “gay marriage” law on the back of an online public consultation which showed that a majority of Scots overwhelmingly rejected it?

    And how come this new law to pervert 4-year olds did not go out for public consultation, or at least parental consultation? It just went into law and no one knew it was happening.

    I mean, do you seriously maintain that this corrupt woman is not a dictator?

    here is one of the most horrific things in my nearly 51 years of pro life work that I have read transgender without parental consent for 4 YEAR OLDS …….All those lovely little lives ruined and scarred because the loons have really taken over .where is peoples fight they succumb to all the loony left evil ideology so called contraception pornographic sex ed .transgenderism ,abortion ,do it yourself abortions also known as back st which all the weirdos fought against in the 60 ‘s now its truly the flavour of the month,..what a cauldron of bubbling evil and of course CORONA VIRUS ..And how huge swathes of sane and rational thinking people succumbed like Lemmings ready to go over the proverbial cliff at the utterance of the new C WORD..and yes now Teens are being injected religious Leaders of ALL FAITHS …..melted like ice in The Sun ..and put their followers in dire peril both physically and Religiously …..
    So the horrific reality is it will be longer be I am going to Nursery to hear fairy stories and play with sand but I am going to Nursery to become caught in a mad world of sexlessness and pain and brainwashing so by the time am 10 I will be totally suicidal

    I agree with your every word. Where is the outrage of ordinary people to this pervesion of infant children? We hear all these stories of child sexual abuse on the news and everyone expresses natural disgust, but what about this equally child abusive law? It seems to me to be a case of out of sight, out of mind, much like the mass murder of abortion. Selfish generation!

    What an appalling, disgusting, ill conceived policy, one which could only come out of such a joke parliament as Holyrood.

    How very far removed are the priorities of the Scottish Government, from those of ordinary people?

    This is a classic example of what happens when you have power mad people in power, whose own personal lives have nothing in common with those of ordinary people.

    Nicola Sturgeon has no children of her own and neither does the leader of her party’s Green toadies, Patrick Harvie. Of course, in Harvie’s case, it is because he is a homosexual. And so, neither person can fundamentally relate to the concept of concern for children’s wellbeing. For them, it is only a question of what might bring votes and the usual abandonment of all sense and decency which is associated with the LGBT world.

    The policy considers no-one beyond whatever confused children may be suffering delusions as regards the reality of their being. Not even their parents merit consideration. Of course, very few children indeed will be affected this way, but Sturgeon is happy to impose these rules across the board.

    I am pro-actively involved in my child’s school and I will certainly be raising this as an issue.

    As for the queries about “where is the outrage” etc – GB News is the only outlet I have seen cover this issue critically. Most news outlets give the SNP an easy ride, and the likes of the Conservative Party have long since stopped pretending to be anything remotely related to Conservatism. (Another reason to vote for the Scottish Family Party at the next election, the only sane voice in Scotland!)

    Also, with the inevitable failure of Protestantism, the vast majority of Scots have no moral formation whatsoever and so they are very susceptible to group-think. This is quite a chilling concept, when you think of it, one which has increasingly alarmed me in recent years. Even novus ordo Catholics have some modest moral (if not explicitly Catholic) formation, but the vast majority of people do not have any greater moral standard or awareness than dogs in the street.

      Never has the old adage been so applicable as in the case of this SNP government “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely”.

        Here’s Neil Oliver blasting the Scottish Government on this issue – and others, including the Named Person Scheme. I was utterly open-mouthed at Nicola Sturgeon’s description of herself as Scotland’s “Chief Mammy” – that’s the first I’ve heard that. Truly incredible. Chris is going to LOVE this…
