“Historic” Agreement Between SNP & Greens: Is Scotland Now An Authoritarian Nightmare?

“Historic” Agreement Between SNP & Greens: Is Scotland Now An Authoritarian Nightmare?

From YouTube Platform – comments include…

A coalition is by definition a partnership.

Sturgeon is making the English resent Scotland. I myself have started boycotting Scottish products. If I see the saltire, it’s not going in the trolley!

Scotland is becoming an authoritarian nightmare. Shetland is leaving and we are keeping the oil and fish.

    Yes, during the last referendum I very much wanted Scotland to remain in the UK – but now I’m not so sure. The Barnett formula has always rankled me – https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-38077948 – Scotland always seems to do better than England, resulting in things like free NHS prescriptions in Scotland – which we in England have to pay for. This wouldn’t be so bad but Scotland has a greater history of self-inflicted illnesses – i.e. alcoholism, obesity through overeating etc. And I’m sick of Nicola Sturgeon. I’m sick of seeing her scowling, mean, pinched face and listening to her rancour and bile all the time. I personally believe she is a racist and hates the English. I wouldn’t care if Scotland left now. Good luck with rejoining the EU and taking the euro and becoming part of the Schengen zone. Also – if Nicola wants to see real democracy in action, why don’t we have a UK wide IndyRef2 – not just Scotland – as we’re all meant to be equal partners?

      WF,

      I totally see the truth in everything you say and I don’t blame you.

      I can add to your comment, this: having lived and worked in various parts of England during my working life, the only anti-Catholic bigotry I ever encountered was in Aberdeen. Big time. Only minutes before the end of my final day in my place of employment (before I left for England), when I was praising my colleagues and spouting all the usual stuff about having benefited from working with them all blah blah, I was told that there was one member of staff whom I’d never met. Puzzled, I asked who, how could that possibly be, as I’d worked there for five years. The reply left me flabbergasted. One member of staff would not come into the staff room because I was there – the only practising Catholic in the place, but one too many for this bigot who, can you believe it, ran a bible study group for young people. I wonder how he explained this verse from the Gospel of St Luke: if you do good only to those who do good to you, what merit is there – even the pagans do as much, do they not?

      ON ANOTHER SUBJECT…

      Wendy Walker, our resident pro-lifer, emailed this request for prayers on 21 August – due to my inefficiency, I overlooked it, so better late than never, here is that email and the second one received today…

      Dear wonderful pro life people may I ask for your prayers please ?

      I spent most of yesterday in The Luton and Dunstable hospital from 11am….7 pm. I suspect I have a blood clot in my leg and I haven’t felt well for about 4 weeks when I had dreadful sciatica then an ear infection now this. I had a blood clot in the same leg some years ago. I have to go back to hospital Sunday 22/8/21 2..30 pm for the confirming scan but they started me on blood thinners yesterday as a precaution.
      Thank you and God bless
      Wendy

      Then this, received today, 22 August…

      Dear Wonderful All

      I just want to make one point very clear. I HAVE NOT HAD OR WILL EVER HAVE KNOWINGLY OR WILLINGLY THE COVID JAB. This clot has come out of the blue probably because of being under govt house-arrest for well over a year my mobility has certainly decreased as well as my general health taking into this my son’s passing.

      Last Friday when I had to give bloods [which I absolutely hate] I checked that every vial was empty because I have to look away and would not want any nasty jab sneaked in it sounds a bit paranoid but you never know.

      You HAVE to wear a mask from the time you enter The hospital though. A nurse asked if I have been jabbed… NO, and she wrote that down. All being well when I go back today I will be super vigilant It is very stressful and as major work is being done at this hospital it is very chaotic indeed.

      Thank you for all the kindness cbr uk
      Wendy Ends.

      Be assured of my prayers, Wendy – I hope and pray that your tests will reveal nothing to worry about, and that you will quickly be restored to good health. God bless you.

      PS – I told Wendy that I would post these emails on the pro-life thread as well, but it’s now at almost 600 comments – well past the 500 mark when I usually open a fresh thread, so I won’t add anything else to it. I need to study the instructions for the new site, as it’s not quite as straightforward as in days of yore, but be assured I will replace that top-heavy thread asap.

    This is an interesting commentary from GB News, will the SNP regret linking up with the Greens. Personally, I think it will all end in tears.

      Laura,

      I agree – this union of the SNP and Greens will surely end in tears. The SNP are already doing a great job of ruining Scotland. The Greens will help put the final nails in the coffin.

    I actually just seen The Horrible Sturgeon and the Equally Horrible Harvie standing beside Each Other. I just seen the Headline never read anything about these Two Horrible Anti Catholic Marxists to the Core, both Morally Bankrupt in all Departments.
    Were my Dog still Living I wouldn’t even let them take it for a Walk.
    I find this so called Political Marriage very Strange. The so called Greens whose Harvies Main Policy is to close Catholic Schools only got a Seat ( if am correct ) through Proportional Represention so How do they Bolster the Horrible S.N.P. Or is it a case of both of them are Evil so let’s stick together.
    Also can anyone Tell Me WHY The Horrible Nicola Sturgeon of whom probably Her Own Mother Never liked . Always has a wee Wummin Beside Her Waving Her Arms about.
    Does She carry extra Masks for Sturgeon , for surely if ANYONE should be forced to wear a Mask it should certainly be Sturgeon. Of course the Horrible LGBTQ2WXYZ pusher Harvie shouldn’t even be let out at night as He Scares Children.

      FOOF,

      I agree with what I THINK you are trying to say – i.e. bad enough as is the Chief Mammy, if anything, Harvie is even worse.

      The one thing they have in common is the desire to keep us all under strict control. So, I’m inclined to believe that Scotland isn’t “becoming” authoritarian – it’s authoritarian right now. This new coalition merely underlines and highlights that fact.

      God help us all.

        Editor,

        With the gloom and doom all pervasive, this may give you a bit of a laugh!

        Pope and Nicola Sturgeon were on the stage together outside parliament house in front of a huge crowd.
        The Pope leans towards Nicola and says, “Do you know that with one little wave of my hand I can make every person in this crowd go wild with joy. This joy will not be a momentary display, but will go deep into their hearts and they’ll forever speak of this day and rejoice!”
        Nicola replied, “I seriously doubt that! With one little wave of your hand?…. Show me!”
        So, the Pope backhanded her and knocked her off the stage!
        AND THE CROWD ROARED & CHEERED WILDLY, there was dancing in the streets & joy and happiness spread throughout all of Scotland!

        Were that Francis actually would have done this…!

    We all thought that little green men were the stuff of science fiction, until now. So the wee Green man (Harvey) has joined formally with the Red lady (Sturgeon), a marriage made in Hell if ever there was one! The loonies truly have taken over the asylum – God have mercy on our once-Christian nation, especially its children!

      Athanasius,

      I agree – and I notice that you give the wee green man the normal spelling of his surname, as spelt by the majority of the entire word But, wee Paddy has to be different He’s a Harvie; I assume that is because there’s a “y” in the normal spelling (Harvey) and nobody is allowed to question the wee green man. No “why” even if it’s just “y”… if you get my drift.

      When it gets to this time of day, I can become very silly, so I’m signing off now. I’ll be back to “normal” tomorrow (but note, there’s no “y” in my name either, so no questions allowed unless you plan to buy me a box of chocolates, in which case you’ll want to know my favourites… Dairy Box, thank you very much… 😀 )

    Dear Wendy, Did they test you for Factor V Leidens Blood Clotting Disorder? It’s worth a try. It’s a hereditary disorder. Its easy to research if you see fit. Two of my grand daughters have it, along with a cousin. I feel bad reading all about Scotland and England. I will pray for you all.We here in the USA are suffering the shame caused by our (so called) leader. Not to mention all those poor poor souls in Afghanistan suffering at the airport. God help us all.

    When even the secular media is using Stalin’s name in commentary about Nicola Sturgeon’s rule of Scotland, you know we’ve been on the right track, correctly interpreting her “politics”, for a very long time now…
    https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/uknews/control-freak-sturgeon-s-stalinist-power-grab-sees-members-axed-from-snp-ruling-body/ar-AANBINI?ocid=msedgntp

    Here’s an extract…

    “All power in the SNP is concentrated in the hands of two people.

    “Its leader and its chief executive who are of course married to each other.

    “This unhealthy dynamic does not allow criticism or dissent and this move is designed to remove the last vestiges of democracy from the SNP and to ensure the NEC is nothing more than a rubber stamp for the leader and chief executive.”

    Interesting.

    I enjoyed the Joke about the Acting Pope, or Pope Acting, and Sturgeon. Av no Doubt that when Pachamama Papa arrives in Glesga Wee Nic Her Husband and even Wee Patrick will be their to meet him and greet Him , after all their all off of the same Cloth ,Evil Marxists to the Core.
    Talking of Wee Nick ( she’s well named) and Her Equally dislikable Husband. Not that I have much Love for any of them, but The Alex Salmond Lie Gates Fairly died a quick Death. Of course am sure it Has nothing to do with The Scottish Media as their Fair . Aren’t they ?? Yes, No Maybe,
    sometimes, or never .
    Also it looks as though the Evil S.N.P. will be in Power at least longer than Hitler. After all
    FOUR year olds now have the Vote .
    On the FOUR years old having the Vote I Emailed the Latin Mass Canceller and asked Him to get in touch with the other Dozen or so Bishops in Scotland and with ONE voice to condemn the Gender Evil being taught to Our Children. I haven’t received an answer yet . He’s most Probably busy . But you would think that His Assistants Assistant at least could give me an Answer Back .

    I actually think this is good news about the SNP joining forces with the Greens. Neither of them has any integrity and they are seedy individuals, so what’s the bet that before long, they’ll be at each other’s throats and skeletons will be falling out of closets, LOL!

    That is, those who comply are allowing themselves to be forced into installing various alarms.

    We have a truly evil, Communist Government in Scotland. Truly evil.

    SUCH a devious woman, Sturgeon is. She’s warning that she will bring in more restrictions, if the “cases” keep going up. What does that mean?
    https://www.aol.co.uk/sturgeon-not-ruling-reimposing-restrictions-122937175.html?guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuYmluZy5jb20v&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAAEfQ5-Plk7ZiHVdjvGwJKo7b4JSZO9qY_se3XMTimwXhDpIfGDkZPqPiq_hoyfgtUsYILtg56eVmffHVUt36dumOWRXmCRqZPOWXxC0vtp8tkJhCy46-VZK59hMn9X26ktxrAP-3Dzv2Gxrdy0xOX4-ajDGl12XbrMaSMy2my2Ow

    Quote: “The First Minister said Scotland recorded 10 coronavirus-linked deaths and 4,323 cases in the past 24 hours.

    Speaking at a Scottish Government coronavirus briefing in Edinburgh, she said the daily case figure is “the largest we have ever recorded in a single day” but highlighted more testing now takes place than in the early stages of the pandemic.

    Ms Sturgeon said new cases in Scotland have more than doubled in the past week, making this “one of the sharpest rises we have experienced at any point during the pandemic”.

    Hospital and intensive care cases have also increased in the past 24 hours.

    She warned Scotland is now at a “fragile and potentially pivotal moment” in the fight against the virus as vaccinations have weakened the link between cases and serious harm but not completely broken it.

    So, we need to eradicate this virus altogether so there’s NO cases – is that the aim?

    I don’t get it at all. She gives specific numbers for deaths(10 out of a population of 5 million!) and “cases”£, (4,323) but just makes a vague statement about increased hospital and Intensive care “cases” – does anyone understand what is going on? I call it “pulling the wool”.

    We need to get our freedoms back, end of discussion. We’ve got hospitals precisely to care for the sick – that’s what they are for!

    It sounds to me like she’s planning another lockdown. I don’t trust her as far as I could throw her.

    This is disgusting news today – the two Greens get junior posts in the SNP cabinet, a whopping £30.000 pay rise, and still keep their opposition slots to supposedly keep Sturgeon on her toes, I don’t think!
