Nicola Sturgeon Telling Lies? Never! (She Insists)

Nicola Sturgeon Telling Lies? Never! (She Insists)


Nicola Sturgeon has rejected an accusation she lied to the Scottish people about the country’s currency after independence.

The First Minister responded to questions from Douglas Ross, following a report in the Times that Scotland would have to join the euro if it wished to be a member of the European Union.

Her government last week published a paper on the economic and currency policy of an independent Scotland, saying the country would continue to use Sterling until a new pound was established.

But speaking to the newspaper, an unnamed EU source said it would be “no euro, no entry” for an independent Scotland, with another three reported to have backed the view.

In a noisy exchange during First Minister’s Questions on Thursday, Scottish Conservative leader Ross asked: “Who’s lying to the Scottish people, the European Union or Nicola Sturgeon?”   Continues...

Editor writes…

Following hot on the heels of the rebellion of hitherto unquestioning SNP disciples who resigned and/or refused to support her Gender Recognition Reform Bill, the recent allegations of lying about the continuing use of sterling as our currency following separation from the rest of the UK is something, I imagine, Ms Sturgeon could well do without.  As we prepare to put the clocks back one hour, (watch – poetry coming up) are we now witnessing the evening of Sturgeon’s First Ministership – if that is the correct term, or at least a “protected” (from jail) term. The scandals are piling up for the Wifie Sturgeon.

Mind you, we’ve dreamed discussed the possibility previously, that she is past her sell-by date and she sailed on, although speaking of sailing, the ferries scandal might also be the beginning of the end for the First Minister of Scotland even if the gender and currency debacles combined don’t carry her off into the sunset, so to speak. At the risk of repeating myself, it’s certainly true that the scandals are piling up.  Your thoughts…


For the record, following a question on the previous Sturgeon thread from a reader in England who asks how on earth any Catholic could vote SNP, I’ve emailed Peter Kearney, the spokesman for the Scottish Bishops Conference, given his public support for the SNP, to see if he can explain it. He did send one of those smart-alec replies which didn’t work, and I now await his considered response – or, put another way, I await  his reply to my reply.  I will publish the correspondence in the comments below in due course.

        YOU don’t seem to have noticed that RCA Victor added “Oh, wait…” after his joke question about the Pope being Catholic. As if!

    Sturgeon is a horrible Human Being .and a follower of He who has been a Liar since He slithered as a Snake in the Garden .She has lied consistently for years and it most certainly got Her where She is so why should She change now. Speaking of anyone who supports this terrible Person they to must have
    the same conscience and outlook on life. Sturgeon should get together with Biden and Pelosi . Now theirs a right Unholy Trinity. How on this Earth any so called Catholic votes for Sturgeon is beyond me .

    Nicola really is slippery. She just won’t acknowledge that the EU has made the rule that countries seeking to join the Union NOW, do have to join the Euro. She relies (as all liars do) on the people listening to her being ignorance of the facts and although, obviously, Douglas Ross knows the truth, that is not to say most people do. Most SNP supporters will take her word for it and trot out the same nonsense about other countries having their own currency although they’re in the EU. The same was true of the UK – we kept our own currency but if we wanted to re-join, then we would have to accept the Euro.

    She really is slippery, as Fidelis says. But then, in all fairness, can anyone think of any politicians north or south of the border who isn’t slippery, absolutely not to be trusted? I can’t think of one.

    The entire population of Scotland should be in revolt against this so-called Bill. The loonies have really taken over the asylum. It used to be that people who identified as something other than what was objectively obvious were carried off to psychatric hospitals, now she wants to issue them with a certificate of sanity and threaten the rest of us with incarceration if we object.

    Whatever happened to wee Nicola’s “we follow the science” mantra when locking us all down during COVID? Does the obvious biological sex of males and females not count as science? But this is waht Marxists do, they replace objective truth with subjective falsehood while pretending it’s because they care. What we’re actually seeing here is yet another sign of Lucifer at work. He’s the one who turns all societal order and morality on its head to make way for the chaos of his reign. If they won’t have Our Lord Jesus Christ for their Master, then they must by default have Lucifer.

    His disciples style themselves “progressives” and in just 60 or so years they have progressed society all the way back to pagan hedonism. Truly blind guides!

    Between the ferries scandal, where there seems to be some big financial corruption going on, and the gender bill which is totally anti-science and ridiculous in every way, plus the dissent from ministers in her own party, at long last and not a moment too soon, I do think her days are numbered now. Here’s hoping.

      I agree with you. As far as I have read the ferries scandal and what seems to be big financial corruption. I am sure I read something about the matter and £140 million was mentioned to pay for them. Cannot find the article now. I am sure I heard in a television news report about ferries being ordered from China. Whether they have been ordered might be a matter of conjecture for I have not heard anything more about it in the news. That taken alongside gender bill is no wonder that there is dissent from ministers in the Scottish National Party.

      Heaven knows when and how Nicola Sturgeon will be ousted from her post. I wonder if she is worried about being ejected from the post, but maybe not. I imagine she will try clinging to power for as long as she can.

    As promised, my correspondence with Peter Kearney, Spokesman for the Scottish Bishops – I emailed him via the Scottish Catholic Media Office website as follows:

    One of our English bloggers is asking how it can be that Catholics in Scotland support the demonic SNP. I trace it to the open, very public, support given by Peter Kearney, spokesman for the Scottish Bishops, so I would be grateful for his confirmation (or denial, hopefully) that he still supports the SNP. (link to that blog discussion here)

    Thank you.

    Reply from Peter Kearney follows…

    Dear Patricia
    Further to your email, are you able to provide me with a single example of “open, very public, support” given by me for the SNP in my capacity as spokesperson for the Scottish Bishops?
    Peter Kearney

    My reply to Peter’s reply follows…

    My my, Peter, you sound like one of those “see you in court” lawyers. I can only remember you being quoted in the Scottish press as being in support of the SNP, so I call that open, very public – what would YOU call it? You were immediately identified as the Spokesman for the Scottish Bishops, I noticed that because I’ve got relatives in dear ole Ireland, with the surname “Kearney” so I wouldn’t have jumped to that conclusion, necessarily… Here’s somebody else who has linked your SNP support with your job. We can’t all be wrong, can we? If you no longer identify as an SNP supporter (in a manner of speaking) I’ll be very glad to hear it.

    So, as the above article makes clear, it seems to be very common knowledge that you have made your support for the SNP known without “identifying” as a different person, if you get my drift. Indeed, I remember one Glasgow priest saying as much in one of our blog discussions on the demonic SNP. However, be all of that as it may, now is your chance to denounce Nicola Sturgeon’s shocking policy on “transgenderism” – a crackpot theory which even Pope Francis has described as an attack on our very humanity. I’d love to be able to announce, in reply to the English blogger, that you not only replied to my message, but that you are wholly opposed to this evil Gender Recognition Reform Bill.

    I await your response with the kind of enthusiasm which I normally reserve for my next fresh cream meringue (with coffee).


    Make of it, what you will, folks – I make of it that Mr Kearney is still supporting the SNP and too bad about Catholic Faith and Morals… That’s what I make of it.

      Peter Kearney after reading your reply:

      “OOPS! Better just ignore the rest of her messages!”

    Nicola Sturgeon tells lies as naturally as breathing. For a start, she is a politician and an SNP politician at that, however we see her nature clearly during her brief time occupying a real job in the real world:

    When briefly (1-2 yrs) working as a lawyer in a legal aid center (her only brief exposure to the ‘real world’) she was found guilt of professional misconduct for lying to her clients. Imagine that, people who get free lawyers end up being lied to by the same! Who could deny that you do not get what you pay for?

    The lie concerned an application form for legal aid which Sturgeon had filled out for a client, a woman suffering domestic violence. She lied to the woman that it had been submitted but it was later found in a filing cabinet.

    Sturgeon also failed to use the law against the woman’s violent partner, just as she today fails to ensure women’s safety with her gender recognition bill.

    Sturgeon’s longevity in politics is nothing to do with talent or success, but everything to do with the low intellect which characterises modern Scotland.

    Dear friends

    Sturgeon is of her father- The Devil a liar and murderer from the beginning.

    Along with her insidious cabal they are children of the evil one. All of them imbued and rotten to the core.

    They are individuals who profane and distort the beauty and truth of human sexuality, marriage, the sanctity of human life, along with perverting and distorting the beauty and truth of Gods divine law.

    As for those Catholics who vote for such people- shame on them. I pray to the Lord that he opens their eyes and heart to the evil they are endorsing in our society.

    These Catholics are in peril of their immortal souls being dammed to Hell in following these false shepherds.

    Mary most pure pray for us.

    Ave Maria

    Every blessing

    Michael 🙏

    Nicola Sturgeon out of date on euro, warns ex-MEP David Martin – all new entrants must sign up to the Euro, not necessarily right away, but “eventually”.

    The above article closes with the following interesting remark:

    Currency was one of the key issues that undid the “yes” campaign in 2014 and the SNP wants the policy this time to be as clean as possible. Parts of Europe are watching with raised brows. If the Scottish government appears sleekit on this basic issue, why should it be seen as a good faith partner on other tough negotiations, not least fishing?

    That’s very interesting. The Times article mentions Sweden because Sturgeon kept naming that country as a country that kept its own currency and is in the EU, but the article points out that Sweden knows it will have to join the Euro at some point.

    These politicians choose their words carefully to mislead us. And then they wonder why nobody trust them!

    Father Stephen Dunn writes…

    Sacred Heart of Jesus,
    50 Old Dalmarnock Road, G40 4AU

    All Masses below are Traditional Latin Masses.

    Tuesday 1 November, All Saints Mass, 1pm – lunchtime
    Wednesday 2 November, All Souls Mass, 1pm -lunchtime

    Confessions will be available 12.15 – 12.45 prior to both above Masses

    Friday 4/Sat 5 November
    First Friday/Saturday all night adoration.

    Schedule is:

    Opening Mass 8pm (Latin)
    Benediction & Exposition follow Mass.
    Confessions from 9.10/9.15pm onwards.
    Four prayer sessions during night. Finishes with Mass of Our Lady, 6am. (Latin)

    Night Prayer is at 11.45pm Friday. Unable to spend whole night with Blessed Sacrament?
    Consider spending 3 hours like Christ hung on the Cross for the forgiveness of our sins: 9pm till night prayer and then leaving. You are then able to say to your Saviour, “As you spent 3 hours on cross for me on Good Friday, this first Friday, I spent 3 hours in your real presence Lord.” What better could you do than praying for the Holy Souls, your loved departed family, friends, than before their Saviour, His Real Presence in the most Holy Eucharist? Ends.

    This is clear evidence of the deception that goes on in the SNP at the highest levels – the comment from the Lib-Dem MP at the end, says it all.

      That’s a very revealing video compilation. I don’t expect them to apologise, they’re too deep into the deceit they call politics.

    Nicola, like Boris and Keir have yet to apologise for their Chinese Communist style tyrannical response(s) to the Covid virus. These people have used their Office to scare children and the elderly. Shameless and not fit for purpose.
    These same people, by their actions, have set back our economy by billions and have caused this serious inflation by their dangerous actions.
    Apology? Not likely, as they are clearly in it for themselves and could care less about the people of this country. Not fit to serve.

    Here she is being questioned about the ferry fiasco – there are a few videos, I picked this one. She is a very slippery customer; she really seems to be unflappable.

    The Rev William Philip, the minister responsible for the judicial review challenging the SNP Government’s right to close churches during lockdown, has rescued an important free speech conference on education by offering his church when the venue was cancelled due to woke complaints.
