    Independence Reminders

    What exit polls? I don't think there were any exit polls for the indyref - which I found suspicious at the time and even more so now.
  2. Good grief, who is that utter wanker? Leaving aside that you can't have a best option when it's a choice between 2 options, only a better option, his claim that our 62/38 vote was actually no different from the rUK is just utter shyte.
  3. What an utterly disingenuous fucktard that MP is.
  4. Regarding anti-semitism, the Semitic peoples include the Arabs, or at least some strands of Arabs, as well as the original Jews. However being Jewish is not a matter of race; there are many Jewish people who are not Semitic in origin, and you can become Jewish by choice. I think Sammy Davies junior converted to Judaism and he's hardly Semitic in appearance. Being Jewish is a religion, not a race, and Jewish people can choose to convert to other religions in which case they are no longer Jewish. What the current furore is about is not antisemitism but a dislike of the apartheid policies of Israel, particularly their treatment of Palestinians. Many people in Israel also oppose their own government's policies. That doesn't make them anti-semitic or anti-Jewish. All this trouble could have been avoided if instead of setting up a Jewish homeland in the Middle East after WW2, they had used a part of Germany as a Jewish homeland. That would have been a pragmatic solution as part of war reparations that would not have antagonised most of the Middle East. However for reasons of what was essentially racism, in the post WW2 era, the people living in what is now Israel were pretty much regarded as inferior and in typical colonial fashion their views were ignored and their interests over-ridden to suit the agenda of the UK, USA and other western powers.
  5. I can't actually remember much about the storyline of Blake's 7, but have always remembered him getting killed in the first episode.
  6. No, I was referring to the fact that Blake was killed in episode 1 and thereafter there were only 6 of them. Making the title a bit of a misnomer.
  7. My condlolences to Blake's 7. Sorry, 6.
  8. I almost agree with you. Indy should not be predicated on EU or EEA alone - it should be indy with a commitment to a multi option referendum about our EU relationship thereafter. That way you don't scare off Yes/Leave voters.
  9. I think the reason these allegation didn't come up in 2014 or 2015 is that the process then was less encouraging for people wanting to make a complaint. The new process is supposed to give a degree of protection to complainants, and that is likely to encourage people to come forward. However on the face of it, the new process also means that the accused is not told any details of what the compaints are, nor who the complainants are. That IMHO is a carte blanche to smear someone. Given that the Daily Record has seen fir to print a story about what is alleged to have happened, I think it is fairly clear that nobody expects there to be a court case as they would be in contempt of court - very unlikely anyone could get a fair trial after such evidence was released and published. Whether or not Salmond tried it on with someone (and from the Record report, my first reaction is "what on earth was she doing in his bedroom?"). It doesn't read like a situation where anyone would end up getting their collar felt by the police - even the report makes it clear that Salmond (allegedly) stopped when asked to do so by the complainant. My money would be on the whole thing falling apart under close scrutiny, and if it turns out that the complainants are politically motivated or being paid by anyone to make the complaint, it could blow up spectacularly in the face of the unionist media - not that they would report it accurately. Even if Alex is taken to court and found guilty of something (is trying to get your hole an offence under any obscure law?), it's not going to cause any split in the indy movement or in the SNP - Salmond resigning has made doubly sure of that - but the msm are as usual distorting and inventing. Not heard much recently about dark money or about the numerous yoon politicians who have been accused or admitted various things - monical Lennon's Labour MP who groped her for example, but also numerous Tories, and let's not get started on the paedophile scandal at Westminster. but hey, SNPbad and indy is dead. Aye right.
  10. Someone else suggested to me that this could be an attempt to rule Salmond out of contention in the event of a UK general election in the near future (which is a strong possibility). Follow the money and you'll find out. Fairly sure Salmond would make a significant contribution in the next indy campaign. He's certainly not going to sit quietly eating cereal, is he?
  11. In which case it would be "I smell Fish"with a capital F. But well played that man nevertheless.
  12. Genuinely have absolutely no idea what you're on about there.
  13. Oh no, how will we cope with this burden. If only we had someone to take all the revenues from us...
  14. I smell fish. Feel free to add your own comments to that opinion
  15. I think that statement from Nicola Sturgeon is well measured and hits just the right note. She can't say that she believes he is innocent because that would be prejudging the whole process. If Alex Salmond has done anything wrong then he should indeed be treated just like any other person. As should, incidentally, the individual, a Labour MP I think it was, who Monica Lennon accused of molesting/assaulting her - that one seems to have vanished from the radar for some reason. It speaks volumes about our msm that the immediate reaction of huge numbers of people is that this is a set-up. If that turns out to be the case, it will be a massive own goal by whoever is responsible.
