Belief In Nonentity Deities Is the Cause Of All Of This!

The tragedy in Pakistan demonstrates what happens when people believe in mythical gods and think they have an afterlife when this one ends.

It is, of course, pure fantasy. Those kids are dead and gone forever. The idiot Taliban have taken away the most precious commodity in the universe – an individual’s life. They have done it because of their belief in religious nonsense.

What Are We Remembering?

11am on 11th November 2014. The Great War began in 1914 and there have more than the usual commemorations this year, but what are we remembering?

Let me say, before proceeding with this post, that this is not a grumble at our serving soldiers, nor those who have given their lives in past conflicts.

There are no longer any surviving soldiers from World War One. There are very few alive today who even remember any of these soldiers from their childhood. Soon everyone who was alive during that conflict will have died.

So are we remembering people we didn’t know who are epitomised by ancient faded monochrome photographs or is it just a remembrance of all soldiers killed in all conflicts?

Ed Miliband – Hopeless, Simply Hopeless

Ed Miliband, hopeless, simply hopelessI have been saying, since this clown was elected, that he is the wrong man for the job. His brother would have been a far better choice.

Now it is so near the election a change could be a disaster. On the other hand a change now could inspire labour voters to switch allegiance back from SNP in Scotland and over from UKIP in the rest of the UK. There are a number of good options including Cooper.

Hopefully, sooner rather than later the idiots supporting UKIP will realise that it would be a total disaster if the UK left Europe. The promised referendum is a nonsense, too, because the strength of arguments for staying in Europe are overwhelming. It’s just a waste of public money.

British politics seem to be in a total mess at the moment and it is difficult to see any really promising outcome in the near future.

Final Considerations On Polling Day – Essential Matters

The first question you need to ask yourself if you planning not to vote or to vote NO is what sort of country in which you wish to live?

You can live in a country that gets governed by a government it votes for about a third of the time or a country which always gets the government for which it votes. Quite simple that one.

In my memory (I’m 66) Scotland has always been a country with a social conscience, wanting to look after the sick, the disabled, the underprivileged and protect the old and infirm. People in need have always been a priority among the majority of Scottish politicians of all parties. It seems to be in the Scottish nature. We all know that these principles are currently being undermined by a Westminster government which prefers to spend money on English high speed rail lines and Trident while it sends Scottish citizens to the food banks and imposes a bedroom tax on disabled people whose needs mean that they cannot sleep in the same room as their married partners.  The Scottish Government has mitigated this by stealing money from other parts of their Westminster hand-out to compensate those people so that they don’t have to have all the anxiety of moving away from their friends to a smaller property. In fact there are no smaller properties and so they just get the financial penalty.

The End Is Nigh!

If there are still NO supporters who don’t believe the lies and deceit Westminster is pumping out about Scottish independence then I hope they will read this item. I appeal to them to do so before they cast their vote in the wrong direction on Thursday.

Scotland has been cheated for the last forty years and a vote for NO means we will continue to be cheated for the next fifty years.

Think about it. Beware of rhetoric. Read, read, read all you can on the subject. Not the threats of what Independence will destroy, but the awful risks we are taking by continuing to trust the union. Don’t be fooled by Cameron’s crocodile tears. He is in fear of his job as the prime minister who lost the Scottish cash cow! A black gold Aberdeen Angus!

Here it is.

You Really Have To Separate The Lies From The Truth

Let’s take them one at a time.

BANKS

Darling said, on national television today that all of the banks have said that they will move business south.

The truth is that NONE of them are moving jobs to England. They are considering the possibility of having to be registered in England instead of Scotland, but a registered office is nothing more than that, “A place where the business is registered.” RBOS actually said there would be no jobs moving south in an official letter. So was Darling lying? Yes he was and it is very scary and some people will believe the scare stories.

Serious BBC Bias! URGENT – PLEASE SHARE AND RETWEET

I have had the feeling all day that the BBC news has been showing more positive news for the No campaign than for the Yes campaign so at 8pm tonight (Tuesday 9th September) I decided to time the amount of time given to each.

First there was 14 seconds of Yes items at 8.01pm

The subject then came up at 8.05pm and ran through to 8.14pm This was the split with Y being yes, N being no and = being neutral. The figures are in seconds.
