Is Nicola Sturgeon Disconnected From Reality?

Is Nicola Sturgeon Disconnected From Reality?

From The Telegraph – Nicola Sturgeon plans to win over critics of trans reforms by selling it as ‘constitutional battle’

Nicola Sturgeon plans to win over critics of her controversial gender law reforms by presenting a legal fight with Downing Street as a “constitutional battle”, the Telegraph understands.

The First Minister is waiting for the furore over trans rights to “die down” before mounting a judicial review against the UK Government’s decision to block her Bill from receiving royal assent.

She has until mid-April to launch proceedings to overturn the Section 35 order, the legislative device used by the Scottish Secretary to veto the legislation.

The laws, which passed in Holyrood in December, will see people as young as 16 allowed to change their legal gender simply by signing a declaration.

“They are biding their time,” a source said. “They would ideally like to take the Government to court, but it is hard for them to do that in the eye of the storm. How can they spend a quarter of a million pounds defending a court case that everyone hates?”  Continues…

Editor writes…

Is Dan Wootton, GB News presenter, right when he persistently refers to the First Minister as “Scheming Sturgeon”?  Or is that a sin against charity?

Where does charity begin and end in political discussion?  Is it uncharitable, for example, to think that Nicola Sturgeon appears to be totally disconnected from reality when she persists in the unscientific belief that men can become women and women can become men?  And should we think our Christian best of her if, as reported in the above Telegraph article, she is biding her time and planning to use the “interference” of the Westminster Parliament in the issue of the Gender Recognition Bill as a “constitutional battle” with the UK.  Is it uncharitable to suspect or say that she is doing this to stoke anti-English sentiment, and thus encourage a (false) nationalism in Scots?

She’s waiting until the fuss dies down, at which time, my guess is, she’ll focus on the UK Parliament invoking Section 35, while playing down the reason for invoking Section 35.  I call that “devious” but then I’m not renowned for my charitable disposition.  We discussed the Gender Recognition Bill here when it passed in December, so it is surely important to reflect on the tumultuous cross-border events since then, as well as this latest development. Your thoughts on charity in politics – sort of…

    Surely if a Man stands in front of a Mirror and sees Himself as a Woman that is Disconnected from reality. Similar if it’s a Woman who sees a Man. Then that person is Disconnected from reality. As for Sturgeon Herself all She wants is for the rest of us to obey Her / Him.
    Their are only 3 Genders.

      I think there’s over 90 genders now, according to the BBC, LOL!

    I think Sturgeon will be on her way out very soon – members are leaving the SNP in droves over this.

      Better late than never, I suppose, but think of the impact it would have had if those 30,000 SNP members had cancelled their membership before the law was passed in Holyrood. Now, it’s a bit of a damp squib.

      Any other leader and that would be enough to have them resign. Look at Boris, forced to resign over a bit of birthday cake! She has some brass neck, Sturgeon. She’ll sit it out and hope we all forget.

    To be fair, I think most politicians are disconnected from reality, not just Nicola, but her interminable obsession for pushing this agenda which only affects a tiny, tiny minority of people is utterly inexplicable, unless looked at from a spiritual angle.

    Your Head Fish does the will of her masters, the globalists, who specialize in claiming they can create their own reality – superior, of course, to the only one God created.

    Not my will, O Schwab, be done.

      RCA Victor,

      What I’d like to know is, how come Schwab & Co. get the obedience of the national leaders so easily? What is it that is really going on, I would love to know.

        In a nutshell, money. To become part of the uber-rich club. Look at Zelensky. He pitches up everywhere, to meet every national leader (most recently our own Rishi Sunak) in a camouflage green t-shirt or sweatshirt (depending on the weather). When he went to the World Economic Forum, it was a suit and tie job.

        What WF said. To which I could add, power, prestige, and of course, the constant threat of losing it all if you dare to deviate from the Party Line. Nice career you’ve got there, Head Fish. Too bad it will all go away if you make the wrong choices….

      I completely concur.

      The lady is a willing and pliant servant of these satanic globalists and their evil agenda and endgame.

      Her sense of reality is the mentality of one who lacks sanctifying Grace and is diabolically disorientated.

      Her evil morals and politics from abortion, trans gender ideologies and all manner of wokeism will ultimately lead to her facing the judgment of God.

      Woe unto them who declare evil good and good evil.

      Ave Maria!

      Every blessing

    I find it strange too, that the voices of Christian politicians have not been raised in this issue of gender “recognition”. Opposition has come largely from radical feminists or lesbians defending the women’s rights and women’s spaces. As far as I’m aware no one in the Scottish Parliament has stood up for the Church’s teaching or for the biological fact that there are only two sexes. Are Christians being silenced or are they too scared to speak out? One Westminster MP, Miriam Cates, bravely stated that “you cannot change your sex any more than you can change your place of birth or who your parents are.” Bravo to her!

      Marsaili Brigid,

      I was thinking the same thing, that the voices of Christian politicians (and clergy) have been silent throughout this whole trans nonsense. God forgive them – they seem to forget that they are called to challenge this whole atheistic push against the law of God.

    It’s a mixture of fear and human respect from politicians who just want an easy life. Look at what has happened to those who have spoken out in their various walks of life. Like I mentioned above with the tyranny going on in Ukraine, we have our own tyranny and it’s ‘trans-tyranny’. ‘Misgender’ someone these days and it can change the entire trajectory of your life – and not for the better.

    Update about Paul ….

    Firstly, Paul is in theatre having his operation – he was due to go into theatre at

    Secondly, his wife expresses sincere gratitude to Westminsterfly. I forwarded the text of his email received this morning, on to her. WF writes:

    I asked Patti Melvin of the Universal Living Rosary in the USA to pray for your friend Paul. She replied and said Fr Ivan Kolodiy of the Ukraine is offering Mass for him this morning, courtesy of the Living Rosary (13th Feb). (WF)

    Paul’s wife tells us that he is reading the blog from his hospital bed so it will be hugely consoling for him to know that Mass has been offered for him today and that we are all remembering him in our prayers.

    I’ll go in and post this same message on the Lourdes thread, as well.

    I forgot to add an important detail, previously. WF posted, for Paul’s benefit, some St Philomena oil, a St Philomena relic card and some blessed rose petals for the sick which came from Fatima.

    Later, he sent the message which I quote in my post at 10.36am today.

    Please, everyone, spare a pray for Paul today. This is a major operation and we hope and pray that he will come through it to enjoy a full recovery, all in the spirit, of course, of God’s will be done.

    I have requested that The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass be offered at Lourdes for a successful operation and recovery for Paul.

    Our Lady of Lourdes and St Bernadette pray for him and his loving family.

      I’m always cynical about the idea that governments can control the weather – this seems very extreme. I don’t know what to think about it. It’s a pity you didn’t send it to editor for a separate thread – it’s a bit disconnected from Nicola, LOL!

        Our Air Force brass admitted years ago that they can control the weather. There used to be at least one YouTube video of an AF officer testifying to this before Congress, but I don’t have time to look for it at the moment.

        I know what you mean, but it’s been well documented that Bill Gates is going to pump some chemical into the stratosphere to ‘help halt climate change’. I don’t know what to make of it either, and I agree, I should have run it past Editor for a potential new thread (apologies, Ed). I’m reminded of a friend of mine who said ‘I’m going to have to think up some new conspiracy theories, because all mine have come true!” We live in such bizarre times that I wouldn’t put anything past anyone. I don’t know what technology could be used to start an earthquake, but if it is true what that woman said – that all those diplomats were told to leave the country etc, etc, just before the earthquake, that is really weird.

        Lily, RCA Victor, & WF,

        Sorry, I’ve been up to my eyes all day – I think that video clip/article which I’ve just skimmed through, would make a good thread, as long as you all stop commenting now. No point saying the same things over and over which is why I should have said to direct all checks of updates on Paul, all promises of prayers to the Lourdes thread. Sorry about that. It’s the Lourdes thread where I’ll post updates.

        It’ll be later tonight before I post the new thread but I’ll get to it just as soon as I can.

    The good news about Sturgeon’s determination to push this gender nonsense is that everywhere there are reports that she is on the way out. I don’t think she’ll be FM for long after this.

        The diehard SNP supporters will always reply: If Nicola is for it, who can be against it? Or, should that be, “agin” it? 😀
