At Doune

by craig on Aug 22nd 2014 in Uncategorized

Thanks for all the good wishes, my health is now much better. It needs to be as I am now at Cardross for Doune the Rabbit Hole and, if last year is any guide, about to work four exhilarating twenty hour days! There are a good number of our regular readers and commenters here as […]

There is Another World

by craig on Aug 12th 2014 in Uncategorized

Resigning minister Mark Simmonds earnt 417 pounds an hour for his “consultancy” work for Circle Healthcare, a group looking to profit from the massive privatisation of NHS services and functions. He had to give it up during his time as Minsiter, but presumably can now go back to it. Simmonds gets 50,000 a year from […]

Orange Blackout

by craig on Aug 11th 2014 in Uncategorized

My mole at Pacific Quay tells me that there will be no BBC coverage of the Orange Order No campaign march in Edinburgh on 13 September. It has been decided that this would “present an unfairly negative image of the No campaign.” I find that fascinating, as the BBC has certainly never shirked from portraying […]

Rusbridger – Handmaiden to Power

by craig on Aug 11th 2014 in Uncategorized

Rusbridger’s Guardian has become an unrepentant unionist, zionist, and neo-con New Labour propaganda vehicle. Particularly deceitful is their attitude to the security services and the “war on terror”, where Rusbridger stands revealed as a handmaiden to power. He was, a very senior Guardian source told me, particularly upset when I described him as “Tony Blair’s […]

Forget Those Shredded Children, Hadley Freeman is the Real Victim Here

by craig on Aug 8th 2014 in Uncategorized

Do not be deceived. The murdered innocents of Gaza are not those who are really suffering. It is the liberal Jews like Hadley Freeman, victims of the new anti-Semitism. Israel is a state openly founded on racist and theocratic grounds, in which Jews have an absolute right to live in Israel, wherever in the world […]

Astonishing Coincidence

by craig on Aug 8th 2014 in Uncategorized

By an amazing accident of timing, the Westminster Select Committee on British Affairs has today published a report saying Scotland will have no currency at independence and may have to barter. The Committee consists of Conservative, New Labour and Lib Dem MPs. The Scottish Sun has run the currency scare on the front page for […]

McGinley’s Choice

by craig on Aug 8th 2014 in Uncategorized

I am starting to look forward with eager anticipation to the Ryder Cup. The European team is looking very strong, and Paul McGinley’s selection choice is absolutely fascinating. At present, it appears that he might have to choose three from five out of Lee Westwood, Ian Poulter, Luke Donald, Stephen Gallacher and Miguel Angel Jimenez. […]

The Currency of Hatred

by craig on Aug 7th 2014 in Uncategorized

The No campaign is convinced it has won the referendum over the question of what currency will be used in an independent Scotland. Being convinced they have won, they are starting to show their true feelings. Everybody in Scotland should read the comments section on this report by the Labour supporting Guardian. That truly horrible, […]

Let’s Keep Supporting Bombing Gaza

by craig on Aug 7th 2014 in Uncategorized

David Aaronovitch is the very first name on the “Let’s stay together” list unveiled today. That’s Aaronovitch, Murdoch employee, unrepentant propagandist for the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan and the bombing of Libya – and look how those turned out – and arch media Zionist. We know why he wants to keep the Union together. […]

The Independence Debate – Those Questions Answered

by craig on Aug 6th 2014 in Uncategorized

Currency Union There are over 200 nations in the world. Many became independent in the last thirty years, a large majority became independent over the last seventy years. Most have their own currencies. Some share a currency. If every other country in the world can manage its currency options, why Better Together are allowed to […]

The True Meaning of Being Scottish

by craig on Aug 6th 2014 in Uncategorized

PENSIOOOOOOOOOOON! I became deeply ashamed of being a British Ambassador when face to face with our complicity in torture and involvement in extraordinary rendition. I am ashamed of Britain’s acquiescence in the genocide of Gaza. I am ashamed of food banks and benefit cuts, of tuition fees and the massive and growing gap between rich […]

Ice Cold on Alex

by craig on Aug 5th 2014 in Uncategorized

The debate format seemed modelled on the Jeremy Kyle show, and pitched to the same intellectual level. Stripping out pollsters’ unionist weighting, Yes just went from ahead to further ahead. Poll before debate 58 – 42. Who won poll after debate 56-44. Yet media claim Yes went backwards! The 2010 debates were much better than […]

Baroness Warsi

by craig on Aug 5th 2014 in Uncategorized

I shared a platform in Dewsbury with Baroness Warsi’s current husband in a meeting against persecution of British Muslims through “anti-terror” legislation. While that particular persecution was under the New Labour brand of Conservatives, and nothing has changed under the official Tories, it nonetheless always seemed slightly strange to me that the family has such […]

Liveblogging the Great Debate

by craig on Aug 5th 2014 in Uncategorized

I am much looking forward to the Salmond/Darling debate this evening. The media have already been playing the expectations game for all they are worth, so that if Darling does not actually wet himself during the debate and then fall flat on his face and break his spectacles while attempting to remove his soiled trousers, […]

Scotland’s First State Visit

by craig on Aug 4th 2014 in Uncategorized

Who should an independent Scotland invite to pay the first State Visit to the country after independence? I intend to do a series of posts at intervals over the next few weeks on some of the diplomatic needs of an independent Scotland. Before tackling some of the weightier questions, I thought today I might look […]

Disgraceful Partisanship from Prince William

by craig on Aug 4th 2014 in Uncategorized

A jarringly inappropriate nationalistic speech from Prince William hit entirely the wrong tone and drew desultory applause at the commemoration ceremony for the start of the First World War, in Belgium today. William’s whole attitude was based on the ludicrous jingoistic myth that there was a “right” and a “wrong” side in the First World […]

Apocalypse Blair

by craig on Aug 3rd 2014 in Uncategorized

While Gaza writhes in agony, Middle East Peace Envoy Tony Blair’s private jet last week was in Las Vegas and Los Angeles. Two months earlier Blair had certainly visited Las Vegas and Los Angeles on the same journey. In Las Vegas Blair was paid a large but undisclosed sum to attend a conference of hedge […]

Massacre Justification

by craig on Aug 2nd 2014 in Uncategorized

There is a concerted media ploy to change the narrative on the massacre of hundreds of women and children in Gaza, on the grounds that it is Hamas’ fault for breaking the ceasefire. The Israeli account of the ceasefire breakdown is parroted relentlessly. I have put some effort into discovering why the ceasefire broke down, […]
