What’s Wrong With The Scots? And Welsh? Why The Obedience To “Lunatic” Devolved Dictators?

What’s Wrong With The Scots? And Welsh? Why The Obedience To “Lunatic” Devolved Dictators?

Editor writes…

Not knowing very many Welsh people, I’ll restrict my commentary to what Dan Wootton, who is never shy of calling out Nicola Sturgeon, opines about our Dear Leader.  He’s outdone himself this time, and this Scot wants to thank him most sincerely, and to assure him that there ARE some of us who are rebelling against her diktats – and have been doing from the get-go.  We are silenced, of course, and have no public forum – except this humble blog – wherein to air our views.  To be fair, though, we believe that “Nippy” (as one of our more colourful bloggers labels the Dear Leader)  is entitled to an Emmy Award for Best Actress of the Covid-Con.  Mark Drakeford eat your heart out!

Only last night I attended a meeting of people gathering for the purpose of launching a “support group”; several expressed the despair they’d experienced this past 18 months, some of it stemming from the feeling of being alone in seeing that this madness is not at all about any virus.  There were about 15 present, with several apologies for last minute problems preventing their attendance, and a number of names mentioned of people who would want to be included in any future meetings.  It was heartening to realise that more people than we might imagine do see the truth, can’t stand being subject to these ridiculous – and totally unnecessary – restrictions, and want to see an end to it all.  I’m reliably informed that such meetings are being planned in various places in Glasgow and environs.

Although, during last night’s meeting it was pointed out that our freedoms come from God, not from any politician or Government, there were no clergy present. The bishops and priests of the Catholic Church continue to support, by their silence, this slide into totalitarianism across the UK.  Not so the laity, who – in growing numbers, thankfully – are waking up to the truth about Covid which is being used as a tool by authoritarian politicians to introduce a new tyrannical form of governance.  And we’re doing all in our (limited) power to resist it.

So, I’ll send the link to this thread to Dan Wootton to make sure he doesn’t think that all Scots are idiots – just like we’re not ALL mean…

    It’s not just the Scots and the Welsh. There are plenty of English who slavishly follow Boris’s every covid diktat. The fact that we haven’t been locked down is probably only because he’s taken a drubbing in the polls lately and is frightened of becoming even more unpopular by ‘cancelling Christmas’. This problem seems to exist in almost every other country as far as I can see. Good idea about a support group. Although if I tried to organise one where I lived, I just KNOW that it would be too much hassle as before it even got off the ground there would be endless arguments about should we wear masks, should we socially distance, should we be meeting at all, should we allow the unvaccinated to attend . . . and so on and so on.

      This meeting was specifically organised by and for those who are against the taking of our freedoms – end of. No masks, no socially distancing no vaccine passports (and as far as I could tell, nobody had taken or was in support of the vaccines per se).

      An email address had been created by one member of the group to send us all updates about rallies etc. So that, together with a lovely cup of tea and some lovely mince pies, made it worth the effort (taking it upon myself to speak for the organiser!)

      Most people expressed their pleasure at finding others who are of like mind, so for purposes of some socialising and discussion, with a point of contact person to keep us all informed of developments, it was a big success. Some of us, myself included, are not on Facebook or Twitter so we never know when there will be important events such as the freedom march last Saturday. Having said that, some of us (myself included) can’t always make such events, but we can at least advertise them.

        I don’t know whether to laugh or cry watching that video of people dropping like flies all over the place! There are certainly causes for concern about the number of footballers taking ill after the vax. God help us all.

        I think it’s because the vax damages the heart – I’ve read it’s something to do with the endothelium, whatever that is, I’m not a medic – and then those involved in strenuous exercise or sports who would normally be healthy, end up having heart attacks. As I have mentioned on this blog before, one of my colleagues who was vaxxed, a healthy, active gym-going 55 year old male, has developed heart problems since having the vax. One could argue the two things are not connected, but I don’t think so somehow.

    Bang on cue, I’ve just had a call from a friend who lives in Wales! I asked him about the attitude of the Welsh people to the restrictions and he said that – certainly around him – they are being “good little people”! Numpties, in other words!

    Sorry ED i read your Piece of course on Nippy but NEVER will I willingly watch that Horrible Wummin. I actually heard Her say ” I want to underline ” now av no doubt Nippy ( and that’s a polite word for Her ) was certainly not going to underline that We the Peasants take our Pennies Doze of Vitamin D Vitamin C and Zinc. I heard from my Brother that Nippy has cancelled Christmas ( She doesn’t believe in it anyhow) . Going off the subject but staying on Nippy. WTH does She mean with -| Seasons Greetings | – I mean what Season is it Nippys talking about. Is it Spring ( it could Be ) is it Summer ( it could Be ) is it Autumn ) it certainly could Be. Alas Nippy doesn’t say ,so it’s take a Guess Time . As for Wales , I certainly have no sympathy for them .
    I personally have quite a Decent Memory and can still recall, The Welcome In The Hills Guys ,
    being Vehemently in favour of The Ravenscraig Closing and did their best to persuade Thatcher and Her Cohorts to do so. This area has NEVER recovered from the Steelworks closing and to put it into some Perspective 400 Apprentices a Year were taken on by British Steel.
    Overnight youth here was thrown onto the scrap heap.
    I believe at that time you were teaching in England but the Welsh had a Major Say in The Ravenscraig Closing. I know of course that it was maybe them or us as regards Steelworks. But the Scots were outperforming the Welsh on a Weekly Basis.
    So if The Welsh have a Twin of Nippy their Welcome. Even when their in The Hillside.

    Large numbers of bishops are HOMOSEXUALS. . The courts are closing in on they and other Bishops in the UK ,Ireland Canada various states in the USA etc..They are complicit ,Bergoglio included for their DECADES of inaction on this nefarious predators clergy…… . They will not rock the boat with politicians on anything. We have seen this in Baltimore MD. USA bishops conference and in the Vatican itself with zanchetta ,Mccarrick and Hubbard etc.

    You know what, Ed? Maybe we’re just too optimistic about people. Maybe they all just feel good about themselves trotting along in the midst of the herd with their fellow sheep, blissfully unaware that they are heading to the edge of a cliff, and in many cases, insisting there is no such thing as a cliff…

    Maybe it will take a STRONGER dose of the Antichrist to wake up the sheep. Or maybe not.

      Victor what REALLY gets to me and probably all on Here is as the Article says WHY . Why with this Pandemic is it the ” VACCINE ” or nothing. We on here know the answer to that of course is Power and Money. Or maybe it’s Money and Power . Take Sturgeon for Example. The Wummin is inadequate except when it comes to arranging LGBTQ2WXYZ Marches . Boris is Likewise as For Joe , well I for one would bet £100 with anyone that Joseph Biden wouldn’t be able to say the Basic 4 Times Table. So these people push Injections onto People who Slavishly believe that Biden. Boris and Nippy actually believe about our Health. I mean just take one of my neighbors for instance. She is a Lovely Woman. But one of Her young relatives a Man has been diagnosed with Heart Problems. Now in May He was as fit as a Fiddle then He had the Injections. Now He cannot work, never again in His Lifetime.
      I asked Her if they thought His Heart Problems could have anything to do with the ” Vaccines ”
      Her answer to me was ” Surely the Medical Profession wouldn’t give us anything to Harm us ”
      Also we know that Professional Sportsmen are dropping like flies with Heart Problems. An Ex Footballer wants an Enquiry Set up as to that Word again WHY No way are they going to investigate these Health Problems in young Men and Women. I believe that an Inquiry into Vaccine Health Damage is going to take place in 2176 . That in itself should raise Many Red Flags about who’s Bank Accounts are being upped enormously.

        Besides money and power, the “why” is easy: the fake vaccines are the method chosen to reduce the world’s population by an unknown amount, and for those who survive the poisons, to make them permanently dependent on drugs manufactured by Big Pharma.

        Endless profits + death = the Satanic dream.

        (“Unknown amount” could be a goal of a world population of 500,000,000, according to the Georgia Guidestones)

      RCA Victor,

      Replying to your cynicism at 3.41pm today… OR maybe they need to reflect a little of the warning of the French Philosopher, Albert Camus: “The welfare of humanity is always the alibi of tyrants.”

      Quite (as our posh pals south of the border often say 😀 )

    I know there are many homosexual bishops in the US and the Vatican but I never heard that said about the UK or Irish hierarchy!

      Well, Crofterlady, you haven’t been reading the Catholic Truth newsletter, Issue # 125, September 2021 editorial, to be precise. As recently as that. Yip.

        Editor, I did read it and hopefully will again later. I remember the scandal re Paul Conroy and Bishop Declan banning the TLM whilst supporting LGBT ones, however I don’t recall reading about homosexual clergy?

        This is the link to the September edition. Read page 16, the section headed From the Editor, Dear Reader..

        Then read page 4 of the (current edition) November 2021 newsletter, entitled: Catholic church in Scotland Mired in… Daisies And Daffodils

        There is also going to be a report in the January newsletter about the forthcoming ordination of an openly/actively homosexual man for a Scottish diocese; he will be named, as will the diocesan bishop, so be aware of that to register it in your mind, as it’s very important that we are aware of the increasing normalisation of homosexual clergy within the Church in the UK, including Scotland.

        For the record, I’ve long said that we have a problem with homosexual clergy in the Church in Scotland, so I’m surprised at YOUR surprise!

        There were two homosexuals ordained in England recently to my knowledge – one in Leeds and one in Westminster. There was a second one in Westminster, I think connected to the ‘Ordinariate’ but not sure if he’s been ordained yet. Obviously, the binding 1961 Vatican document Religiosorum Institutio, https://www.ewtn.com/catholicism/library/religiosorum-institutio-2007 which states “Advancement to religious vows and ordination should be barred to those who are afflicted with evil tendencies to homosexuality or pederasty, since for them the common life and the priestly ministry would constitute serious dangers” has obviously been chucked out of the window, as has the 2005 Vatican document on the same subject: https://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/congregations/ccatheduc/documents/rc_con_ccatheduc_doc_20051104_istruzione_en.html As you reap, so shall you sow. This policy of ignoring binding documents on this matter can only end in disaster, for both the ordained and the laity.

        Agreed – it will surely end in disaster. In the first instance, I’m only publishing a smattering of what is known about this man, who is about to be ordained for a Scottish diocese, and such is the temerity, the brazenness of his (and his Rector’s) defiance of Church law/instructions, that they have ignored my emails. As you say, then, they shall reap what they have sown! Once such a serious matter is in the public domain and uncontested, well… say no more. In Scottish parlance, he can’t say “Oh no, it wisnae me…”

    Thank God for Dan Wootton – the voice of the people in the media. He’s absolutely right, Sturgeon and her Welsh counterpart are power drunk and absolutely set on the destruction of their respective nation’s economies. They can then blame the Tories for all the damage and start the old Independence business up again. I suspect, though, that too many people are on to them now for that to work. If we had a proper Prime Minister in Westminster, this pair wouldn’t have dared go as far as they have. The entire political system is utterly corrupt. Devolution should be done away with and all government restored centrally to Westminster – with a proper Prime Minister in charge, like John Redwood. Devolved governments are a Communist tactic intended to divide and conquer, which is why Scotland and Wales have cultural Marxists as First Ministers. People can really be so blind at times, even supposed intelligent politicians.

      I agree, thank God for Dan Wootton, speaking out for us in the devolved nations. I don’t know if devolution can be overturned but if so, I’d be in favour of it. This has been one very failed experiment, tailor made for those with a tendency to dictatorship.

    It seems that the Archdiocese of Quebec has something in common with Mark Drakeford and Nicola Sturgeon, in that Masses at Christmas has been cancelled. Heaven help us all, if Bishops throughout the world follow suit.


    I agree, that Dan Wootton is speaking out for us in the devolved nations. Totalitarianism on a global scale is well and truly here with no end in site.

    Just in from the Hospital there ,and at the Bus Stop got talking to a Girl who works in a Care Home . She said that ALL of the People mostly very Old of course have been confined to their rooms for 14 Days . She also said that many died in last years Lockdown and Everyone who has Died in same Care Home since this Chinese Disease has Covid on their Death Certificates. Of course She said that all Patients in Care Home have been Double Vaxed and Boostered
    ( whether they wanted it or not ) She also said that anyone who Visited Same Care Home has to be Double Vaxed and Boostered . I said to Her ” Well either these Injections work or they don’t ”
    Then up pops this Oul Thing and says Her Daughter is a Schoolteacher and all Kids should be Vaccinated and Boostered. She also said ” What other Profession puts their lives in danger everyday through their Job ” I quickly told Oul Mrs Broon that in the 70s I regularly worked 100ft up everyday and People getting killed at work was common, and that that was really putting your Live at Risk . The Bus came and thank God Oul Mrs Broon wasn’t going on the same one as me.

    “What’s wrong with the Scots?” is a question I have often asked myself and not just in the current covid situation!

    In my opinion, Scotland is “group think central” – many people don’t think for themselves, or listen to alternate views.

    They are not concerned with what is objectively true or “right”, they are only concerned with being “one of the gang” and parroting what everyone else is saying.

    I genuinely believe many Scots would prefer to be wrong with others, than correct on their own.

    There are various issues behind this, one is a lack of confidence which comes from a shallow modern identity, the other is the degradation of the very concept of objective truth which started at the reformation and is on full show whenever the idiots in Holyrood attempt to legislate on anything!
