    Fire These Uppity Freak-Fans! 

    Edinburgh is a pretty sick city….

    Freaks Amok In Auld Reekie! 

    …but we’ve known that for a while.

    I wouldn’t usually expect to find myself rushing to do battle on behalf of a lesbian SNP MP…..


    Joanna Cherry in 2019

    Joanna Cherry

    She was due to appear at The Stand during the Fringe Festival in August.

    The venue has cancelled the event after staff said they were not comfortable with her views on transgender issues ..


    ….but it’s quite intolerable that a gaggle of freak-fans employed at a theatre which has apparently benefited from tax-funded subsidies should be able to stop Joanna Cherry – or anyone else – from expressing her opinions.

    Ms. Cheery correctly says ..

    “Staff shouldn’t be framing editorial and artistic policy.”

    Too true!

    The mincing twits are employees, who need to be taught to know their lowly place in the scheme of things….



    …which is – to do what they’re told or take a hike.



    Flunkeys don’t get to say who does what!

    The uppities should be fired.


    Read the whole report.

    Her dismay, at how the freak lobby has got MPs and MSPs intimidated, would be touching, were she not still talking about maladjusts…..



    ….as if they’re something other than maladjusted!

    ABC Shows Ugly Face Of Trannery 

    I’d almost forgotten the red nazis of the Socialist Workers Party..

    (SWP was in fact simply a new name for the group known previously as IS (International Socialism Group) –

    IS’s position was always one of unconditional support for the IRA in the struggle against imperialism..”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socialist_Workers_Party_(UK))

    …on whose thuggish ideology I haven’t written for a while….

    BBC At War…No Longer Neutral? 

    Trotskyist Take-Over’ – Glasgow Labour Regime Still Collaborates With ‘Occupy!’ 

    Like CNN, UK Guardian Sees Public ‘As Stupid As Sh-t!’ 

    …but switching channels this so-far-sunny morning…

    (7.45am Jakarta time)

    …there it was, one of their distinctive placards, held by a snarly creature of indeterminate sex (not ‘gender,’ please!)

    ABC was showing us a pro-transfreak demo in Scotland, not a pretty sight!



    Mind you, the SWP placard was not as offensive as another in the maladjust mob, delightfully proclaiming…

    ‘F— U, Fascists.

    It seems like we can’t have any news bulletin this year with some militants ranting for these wretched beings…

    (ABC called that lot ‘Trans Advocates!) .

    ..to be accepted as somehow ‘normal.’





    It’s detestable, having to note this incessant obsession by many media, but it’s important to expose it, too.

      Your last sentence makes me think you’re getting tired of fighting back but you mustn’t give up.
      Even some conservatives on other sites are beginning to sound like they are prepared to accommodate the freaks.
      I see even Kemi Badenoch is talking about ”respecting’ them.
      She should be telling them to apply for treatment, not ‘gender identity certificates.’

      Keep fighting, sir.

    Free Scotland? Ye Need A Permit Tae Huv Hogmanay Guests! 

    When I lived in Scotland, several decades ago, it was the done thing on 31st December, at night, to wander the streets of one’s town…



    …and if party noises were heard, to knock on the door, familiar or not, and you’d more than likely be welcomed in.

    Such open house hospitality, I fear, is no longer common, but still, New Year’s Eve, Hogmanay, is a time when Scots welcome family, friends and neighbours in for a wee dram – or a dozen.



    But nowadays, no more than SIX guests allowed!

    I’d like to say that this imbecilic edict is a diktat from Brussels, but it’s not.

    Edinburgh residents have vented their anger at having to apply to a private company for access to their own homes during this year’s Hogmanay celebrations…

    People living in some parts of the city centre will also face potential restrictions on the number of guests they can invite if they wish to have parties of their own on New Year’s Eve…


    NO FURTHER COMMENT – from me…

    …but what might Braveheart say about what happens in a Scotland whose local parliament is dominated by the separatist SNP….?

    All the best for 2020!

      It is a very high-handed way to treat people.
      There should be an apology and no more such cheek.
      Your headline is a quite good rendering of Scottish pronunciation but more like a Glasgow accent than what is typical of Edinburgh.

    Human Rights Outrage In…Edinburgh? 


    That was the headline that leapt out me this morning from The Scotsman, which used to be a fairly normal newspaper!

    A ‘green shopper?

    Treens – Wikipedia

    Was this a case of racial discrimination?

    Were ‘poor, desperate migrant‘ Treens,  fleeing the torture nightmare of compulsory finger-printing on arrival in some Italian port, now being subjected to further harsh oppression?

    Well, no!

    In fact why this ‘story’ is even considered news is beyond me!

    A green-minded shopper has been left shocked and angry after the country’s leading supermarket banned him from bringing his own packaging to carry food home in. Green shopper banned from using his own packaging at Tesco

    I personally can’t see why the shopper shouldn’t be allowed to do as he pleases.

    I still regret the halcyon days when fish and chip shops served us our glorious suppers wrapped in old newspapers…

    …and do NOT remember anyone I knew, or even heard of, ever suffering health problems as a result of enjoying food served in that cheap and cheerful packaging.

    But having said that, it’s up to Tesco how they treat the meat they sell.

    Although I am not ill-disposed to boycotts when customers are insulted by ignorant bigot shop assistants who subsequently go unpunished by management…

    ‘He pointed at the ham and wine in my basket and said “I can’t serve you that because I’m fasting. When I told him he should be serving customers not turning them away he still refused telling me to go to the self-service. I was furious.’

    Tesco Covers for Bigot Staff After Sectarian Snub to Shopper!


    ….I can see no justification for that ‘green’ Edinburgh shopper to be ‘shocked and angry’ nor for him to propose that the store be boycotted.

      I remember the Treens.
      They were among the first post-war illegal immigrants and there was much more effective resistance to them by the authorities in the Eagle comic than we see today!
      Dan Dare come back, we need you today!

      Ah yes, the chips tasted a lot better and cost a lot less.

    Scots’ Decision – Vengeful Separatism Or British Freedom! 

    A fine sunny morning here in Jakarta!

    But the future for freedom if the separatists win on Thursday looks pretty bleak, if prominent SNP spokesman Jim Sillars is to be believed.

    A former Labour MP who jumped ship, his vow of vengeance against those opposed to breaking up Britain showed Scots the Stalinoid face that WILL rule in Edinburgh if the vote this week goes the wrong way. SNP’s Jim Sillars threatens BP with nationalisation 




    Salmond has distanced himself from his more candid comrade. Yet Salmond himself, of course, was once, in healthier days, expelled from the SNP for far-left republican agitation.   


    But expropriation of businesses as an act of political retribution is hardly the only darkness visible behind the leer.


    alex+salmond Salmond


    With Salmond’s own unequivocal ambition to Obamanise immigration, we know for sure that a ‘yes’ result will usher in an era of border guards  patrolling the vicinity of Hadrian’s Wall for the first time for centuries, as undesirable aliens will otherwise have unimpeded access to the British tax-trough. 


    But let’s not be pessimistic. Many Scottish hearts beat loyal and true still.

    Some fifteen thousand Orangemen and women and children marched through Edinburgh on Saturday, in a rare display of unionist fervour, an impressive contrast to the dry-as-dust economic arguments that have comprised much of the ‘Better Together’ campaign, and to Cameron’s belated crocodile tears.



    Scotland, like Ulster and Wales, are proudly British, and rightly proud – together our ancestors built the greatest force for good the world has ever seen, the British Empire.  




    There would be no Canada, no Australia, no NZ, had that great enterprise never happened – and that common heritage of achievement is not forgotten.

    The wee Scots lassies, below, on their big day out in Edinburgh yesterday, show a future promise SO much brighter than Sillar’s and Salmond’s sinister schemes.

      It’s big news in Canada, Ross, for if Scotland achieves independence, many Quebec separatists see the same for Quebec. I believe, like you I think, that in both cases the prospective independent states are better off remaining with the successful whole country. The UK is what it is with its great achievements that you mention because Scotland was part of it. Canada is similarly the great country it is because Quebec is part of it. My sincere hope is that voters in Scotland wisely vote “NO” to independence and remain part of the UK and loyal to the Crown.

      Hi Ross,

      Interested to hear your comments on the picture in this link. https://twitter.com/ExpatsScotIndy/status/485692759185952768/photo/1

      All romanticism aside about a once useful Union, the Crown and all that, what matters is today and the future. Apparently many Scots don’t feel British. One could ask why is that? Whatever the outcome it will be interesting to see if London dares to investigate why half of the Scots don’t care about the UK, not with a shameful last minute offer of more autonomy but with a honest approach with being humble and listening.


    • Annette Ansel 13:15 on September 18, 2014 Permalink | Reply

      I think, Lairedion, you are on the mark with that about the ‘more autonomy,’ but we will find out how many feel British tomorrow afternoon sometime.
      British party politicans have done very little to make any of us feel British, all the multicultural multi-identity instead of the things that unite us, and some of those are the Crown, and the Union Flag.
      These are not “romanticism” as you call them but what being a country really means, not local government autonomy or taxes.
      I agree with Ross, those Orange marchers were the first show of the real good reasons for staying together – pride in our British achievements and our history.
      PS I am not an Orange member either.
