    ‘Freedom!’ Shouted Braveheart – But Not On Sturgeon’s Watch! 


               

    Remember him?

    No, not Mel Gibson, but the Scottish hero he played so well in ‘Braveheart,’ a film I am always happy to watch whenever it returns to the tv screen.

    Sir William Wallace’s war-cry was ‘FREEDOM,’ and it’s being stomped by the leftist separatist SNP leader…

    No “People’s Vote” For Scots Parents! The Separatist ‘Brat-Charter! 

    Separatist Socialist Sturgeon – Biden’s Trans-Atlantic Twin? 

    “I believe passionately in free speech but..” she said.

    ==========

     ….Nicola Sturgeon, whose record on almost everything stinks!

    Please read on, especially our doughty band of readers in Scotland, who should FIGHT Sturgeon’s gaystapo agenda..

    /

    …and heed the C4M appeal.

    AND please check out the petition I have appended at the bottom of the page!

    It’s going to be more difficult to disagree with same-sex marriage in Scotland – and in the rest of the UK. ”

    The new hate crime Bill there seems to confuse disagreement with hatred.

    C4M is particularly concerned as there is no free speech clause on marriage (unlike England, Wales and Northern Ireland). Our sister organisation, Scotland for Marriage, has circulated the following:“The proposals, currently making their way through the Scottish Parliament, have drawn strident criticism from every corner of Scottish society because of the potential to shut down freedom of expression.

    This is because the Bill:

    ‘has no free speech clause on marriage – unlike England, Wales and NI;has thresholds so low that you could even commit a criminal offence without intending to;could see people prosecuted for things said in the privacy of their own home;

    has no free speech clause protecting discussion of transgenderism – a controversial issue which totally undermines a ‘one man, one woman’ definition of marriage; 

    has no backstop to prevent misuse of the law – unlike England and Wales where the Attorney General (or in Northern Ireland the DPP) must give permission to prosecute.”

    Judges, police, lawyers, actors, comedians, academics, feminists, secularists, Christians, left and right wing commentators, civil liberties groups and politicians from almost every party have raised concerns about the hate crime Bill’s impact on free speech.

     

    ”The law covers all publications distributed in Scotland.

    If Police Scotland believe an English newspaper on sale in Edinburgh “is likely” to “stir up hatred”, they could get a warrant from a Scottish Court, drive down to London and arrest the editor. 

    ”C4M defends the freedom to speak out in defence of marriage.We know that marriage can be a contentious subject and some activists would do anything to shut down the debate.

    That’s why, when same-sex marriage was going through the Westminster Parliament, C4M fought hard to get a marriage clause into the law on hate speech.“In this Part, for the avoidance of doubt, any discussion or criticism of marriage which concerns the sex of the parties to marriage shall not be taken of itself to be threatening or intended to stir up hatred.”Section 29JA, Public Order Act 1986 (as amended)This important protection, which applies in England and Wales and is duplicated in Northern Ireland, allows people to speak freely about traditional marriage without fear of the criminal law.

    It is troubling that this essential provision is missing from Scotland’s hate crime Bill, and C4M will be making representations to Scottish politicians to ensure this is addressed.

    DONATE

    Oh, and BTW, here’s a petition, begun by a fellow with whom I have almost nothing in common, but targetting that Sturgeon.

    Any readers in Scotland should have a look and add their names to the rapidly increasing number of signatures!

    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.
