News is saying 1400 homes flooded in England and Wales - proper shame they can’t claim relief from the EU flood disaster fund 👍

Twitter continues its downward spiral.

2/ the good news is that History has shown that this path is short lived and the people responsible end up paying a huge price.

Humanity always wins - you can only be the oppressor of people for so long - the people will rise.

As a young man living in the Netherlands, I was struck by a photo I saw on a wall in a Dutch Museum. It showed thousands of Jews getting into cattle cars - there were only 4 German soldiers and none were pointing their rifles at anybody.

There was more to the story than I had been taught and it started a lifelong study of life in Germany leading up to the war from about 1930.

The similarities in the UK right now are startling - be of no doubt of the direction Westminster is taking us.

May just be me but …….. the amount of tansgender people hasn't changed much, the amount of transgender activists hasn't changed much either. Right now political parties are being hammered over transgender things - EXCEPT the Tories - same with this anti Semitism - seems like its everybody EXCEPT the Tories.

Would I be wrong to suspect that all this SHITE is 100% fabricated by the Tory back room boys ? ….. to cause disruption ……..

I took my child to a birthday party the other day & the diversity was a joy to behold. I swelled with pride to see all the kids dancing & playing together, regardless of differences. This is our 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 & this is who we are 👇

There is a lot of information that we know that only becomes important once someone walks you through it step by step …..

Just reading The Patient Assassin by Anita Anand, which takes you through the British occupation of India step by step and makes you recognise exactly what is going on in Scotland today,

The Racially Superior Brits killed millions for no other reason than to extract wealth.

The road to freedom was painful but was achieved by unity …….. unity against the foe.

Nicked this from Sinn Fein .....

The old guard can have yesterday. Tomorrow is ours.

Learned a new expression today from the early 1900’s used to describe certain politicians - “Die Hards”.

Die Hards were arch-Conservatives who believed in the racial superiority of the British and the vital importance of the Raj.

Not a lot has changed in the last 100 years then .........

Be interesting to see if Ruth's peerage for life will be valid once Scotland has left the uk …..

Mundell must be fuming btw …. lol

Interesting change in Dynamics - people are generally afraid of radical change when they vote.

The SNP's bid for Independence and stay in the EU is now actually the vote to keep things the same and maintain stability - leaving the EU will change everybody's life dramatically, the same way everything changed when we joined the EU.

I'm guessing Nicola was well aware of this when she was putting together her plan of action :)

“If you believe in Scottish Independence, you believe that the Scottish nation are a “people” within the meaning of the UN Charter, and thus have an inalienable right of self-determination...” craigmurray.org.uk/archives/20

My thought for the week ......

"Do not ever go to a meeting with Nicola unprepared " is a sentiment I have heard several times.

She is well known for doing her homework, being well prepared and putting together plans that work..

Now is the time to stand behind her and trust her to get the job done.

Its actually quite easy because there are no alternatives …..

Just learned a new expression.....

Moon the Yoons …… lol

While it's good news that Sturgeon is demanding that Scotland have its own immigration powers, it's depressing that the English Home Office would make the final decision on the Scottish government's approval of visas. How is that more than a cosmetic measure? It's another example of what Xeno Albannach recently called "the colonisation of the Scottish mind." dockyardpress.com/the-harbourm
