Speaking Date Availability 581

I am available again for Yes meetings on 15, 16 and 17 September. Invitations welcome through the contact button above. Happy to go anywhere I can do good. My St Andrews speech a week ago has now had 75,000 views on Youtube.

It is symptomatic of the way this campaign has gone that I can find nothing online from the No camp which has had one fifth as many views, with the solitary exception of the PatronisngBTWoman video, which has massive views from people making fun of it.

Miliband was in Blantyre yesterday where his every bodily function was breathlessly reported by Severin Carrell in the Guardian – but even the Guardian could not pretend his audience in the “Labour stronghold” amounted to more than “dozens”. I am told it was under fifty. Better Together support on the ground has simply evaporated. What they rely on is that the massive output of mainstream media and the authority of the Westminster parties will have sufficient impact on their key demographics – pensioners, and housewives in a 1950’s sense – to shore up a residual no vote of the easily scared. My challenge to people to identify any Better Together gathering of more than 300 has been met with resounding silence.

Television has been wall to wall Miliband lately, and the BBC in Scotland seem to have simply abandoned their obligation to give equal broadcast time and treatment to both sides. Presumably many of the New Labour hacks who control Pacific Quay realise that their behaviour has made a Yes win a career threatening situation for them, so at this stage they see nothing to lose.

If independence is achieved it will be down to a popular movement and not to any politician. Indeed, if one person has to be singled out, I would say the Rev Stuart Campbell has made the most decisive individual contribution in the campaign. If Social media has beaten the mainstream media, the central rock around which millions of flowers have bloomed has been the Wings over Scotland website. This has a significantly larger daily readership than any newspaper in Scotland. The Wee Blue Book I found everywhere, including copies already available in pretty well every pub I entered, as I toured the East Coast. Over 400,000 downloads of the PDF have been made and 250,000 copies centrally printed, as well as a number of private initiatives which had already obtained professional printings from the PDF. Conservatively, there are over half a million hard copies out there, as well as all the reads online. In a population of 5.2 million, that is a major impact.

When we close down BBC Scotland and create a new citizen based, cheaper and more arts-oriented organisation in its place, let’s put Stuart Campbell in charge. Some state-funded drama and arts output seems to me commendable. State funding of pap entertainment is not needed – the private sector can do that perfectly well. State funding of “journalism” which investigates nothing and never challenges the establishment must be stopped.

    I make that one name (unless, of course, “et al” is someone’s handle).

    Do please carry on with your roll call and while waiting we’ll have a good snigger at your numerical skills. LOL

    How about the Congo (formerly Zaire)? Sudan?

    And they have even less fresh water than the Palestinians. Lot more disease and much higher infant mortality as well. Not to mention war-induced famine.

    But, hey, what’s an African compared to a Gazan?

    absolute mod-power corrupting

    Jon was a dab hand at that, and used to change the incriminating data, and I used to keep a track of his little corrections too. Glad to see that I was not the only one.

    Tony whatever the mechanism of the destruction, it is an incidental, but the fact remains that the murdering bastards changed the planet future direction and brought about the current dystopian nightmare. Although it seems despite their best efforts the whole of the scheme have come unstuck and the rotten edifice is falling apart as it did with the other empires of evil.

    Let us hope the next time, people will not make the same mistakes, and for that reason we need to shine light on every corner of the dark and rotten carcass as it is falling apart.


    Deranged harridans deranged wingman, stop covering up, the game is up, and you have been unmasked. Clearly you have issues with your sexuality, and that is no concern of mine. I am comfortable with being a man, and I find your relentless use of misogyny the kneejerk reactions of an extremists with a confused sexuality, who has got the wrong end of the stick when it comes to feminism.

    You have confused misandry with feminism, and in your eyes standing up to female bullies the likes of yourself and your tag mate dreo the mystic as “misogyny”. Further, as you project your dark inner fantasies of castrating all males as your “feminist” license;

    “Now don’t forget to leave hubby’s balls on the mantle when you retire”

    You give away the drivers in your pathetic life, and forget that I, or any other man are not responsible for the mess that you call your life. It would be best for you to snap out of it and find the reason for all the frogs in your life that never turned into any princes, look inward and not out, who knows you may even find your answers, and become a more pleasant individual into the bargain.

    Until then I find there is no point in any interactions with a deranged and confused individual who is suffering from an interminable persecution complex that is compounded with her misandry, that is so vividly manifest through your “contributions”.

    Sweet blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo

    “Further, as you project your dark inner fantasies of castrating all males as your “feminist” license;

    (gently) I think you’ll find it’s Ben with the castration fantasies. But don’t worry. You’ve got enough going on in there without having to deal with the fact that you are really one hundred percent skew-whiff about most things.

    “Ben with the castration fantasies…”

    Lol. Yeah, males spend the day wishing and hoping to have themselves clipped for the sake of gender equality.

    Now, if tech is transexual, all bets off.

  • Fedup

    I’m a women-hater and a man-hater? Projection squared.

    Ben get the dictionary and start looking for ists and isms and start stringing them together.

    I am having a hoot here.


    The self inflicted is back and banging on his drum, such is the hold of this kind on this blog, whom feel they can lord it and order the goyim cattle around.

    Indeed not, but your particular “perspective” has no place on this blog. Try David Irving, mortherntruthseeker or Stormfront if you can’t restrain yourself.

    Pathetic waste of food, has been interjecting with its “wisdom”. Fact that Sormfront is manned mostly by the “angry ……” the other half of the keyboard brigade who are busy pouring bile and venom, all the while keeping up the pretences of the “nazi”.

    The poster who suggests considering restoring the Plantagenets to rule in Scotland has said nothing to indicate he has any idea of what is contained in Scots wha hae, nor of why it is not a good idea to make a descendant of Edward Longshanks the monarch of Scotland.

    This has got to be one of The Funniest Headlines Ever In The Daily Telegraph

    “Ten days to save the Union: Brown and Cameron join forces against Yes”

    I Reckon You Scottish Lads Have Got It

    My wife and I are English (though we did get married in Scotland – at Gretna Green (Runaway Sweethearts)..we didn’t invite anyone else..and dragged a reporter off the streets to be our witness….

    Not been to Scotland since..but our lad, and his friends have several times..they spun my car off the road on the ice…into a bog..he had to get the RAC to drag it back on the road..sure he was covered..he had crashed his sports car MGF Racing Green and asked Dad – can I borrow your car..

    Now it is hard to explain..It didn’t use to be like this…when my wife and I were growing up…The UK wasn’t making War with the Rest of The World..we were just being kind of Normal..Who Let These Psychopaths Gain Power…I guess its our fault, by not being politically motivated…What can we Do Now..

    Sorry…We are O.K. Honestly and Trying To Put Things Right…

    Can But Try.


  • Ben

    I’m really rather glad the subject of gender bias came up.

    i’ve been assisting a local father by agreeing to court-mandated supervised visitation for him only for his two school-age children. Mind you, the wife filed for a restraining order because she feared for her safety as he was violent. It was granted. Courts should err on the side of caution, but let me continue;

    It’s been 7 months and all the allegations against the father were not only determined to be unfounded, but refuted for lack of any evidence. No criminal history of any kind for the father. As I said, it’s the court’s obligation to protect the safety of the child and life in general. But, the father, in spite of evidence to the contrary, real objective evidence and testimony was ordered in each of three court appearances, was never provided and deemed ‘false allegations”. All of them. In toto.

    Now the judge, has no recourse but to rescind the supervised visitation, right? Nope. nothing changes.

    The Father’s rights are being violated every day in American courts. It’s an outrage for the children, as well as the Father.

  • craig Post author

    Why is everybody so angry?

    The whole point of this discussion space is to allow people to discuss differing opinions and give new facts. Closeness to my own opinion is not a measure of merit.

    I can see no reason for all these irrelevant personal attacks on each other.

  • Macky


    When I last looked at this blog, a mere two days ago, the trolls have retreated back under their respective bridges, and the discourse was flowing smoothly, and it was a pleasure to read through the many informative/interesting comments, but now as Ba’al has put it;

    “Trolls 10, rest 0.
    Thread completely disrupted and reduced to pointless bickering”

    What on earth could have happened to cause this re-flood of wrecking trolls !?

    Sadly the answer is not so surprising, as the smear specialists have given Craig the pretext to get at all those Lefty leaning posters that he really does detest, or as Fedup stated it;

    “Threads getting deleted have nothing to do with racism but a calculated move on the part of the blog owner”

    A pov confirmed by Craig himself who admitted that he couldn’t be bothered to determine if the comments were as alleged, and therefore decided to delete two whole threads because of the obviously guilty “obnoxious” comments contained. Hereby confirming how this blog works like a loaded dice, and also confirms the lack of respect Craig has towards his posters, as over one thousand of their comments have just been throw away, on a smear of antisemitism; it seems only the pro-Establishment trolls, and a few of their useful idiot enablers, are not only the only Anti-Semites, but can also determine who is one or not !

    At least Craig has now removed from the regular deletion callers the fig-leaf of concern over possible legal prosecutions.

    Ben; “It appears St Patrick didn’t drive all the snakes out of Ireland”

    Thanks for the best LOL for a while ! 😀 That tickled me; my own image is of a shrieking rabid Banshee !

    “The poster who suggests considering restoring the Plantagenets to rule in Scotland has said nothing to indicate he has any idea of what is contained in Scots wha hae, nor of why it is not a good idea to make a descendant of Edward Longshanks the monarch of Scotland.”

    Well, it was only a suggestion to consider, wasn’t it. Personally I don’t mind who the monarch is provided there will be a monarch. Well, as long as it’s not the Comte de Paris, of course. How about Constantine of Greece – he’s in London looking for a kingdom and might be willing to relocate?

    BTW – the poster’s name is Habbabkuk.

  • Habbabkuk (La vita è bella) !

    Macky thunders

    “..and also confirms the lack of respect Craig has towards his posters, as over one thousand of their comments have just been throw away, on a smear of antisemitism;”

    On the contrary, Craig shows what I feel is excessive respect towards his contributors by putting up with a great deal of nonsense from certain old lags.

    Now, if you’re still harbouring your old grudge against him, why did you return to his blog?

    Let us also dismiss this silliness about “a smear of anti-semitism”: no smear but hard facts and not anti-semitism just old fashioned Holocaust denial.

    So happy to have been amoung those who made Craig aware of the filth that had crept onto the threads concerned that I’ve awarded the Habbabkuk GROF* medal to myself and a couple of other contributors.


    GROF – Get Rid Of Filth

  • Habbabkuk (La vita è bella) !

    Just as a postscript to the above:

    I’ve also minted a small number of GROL* medals and they are awaiting deserving recipients.

    And would be willing to award one to Macky if he were to decide all by himself that his presence is no longer desired on this blog!

  • Dreoilin

    “Macky !!!!!!!! Quite.”

    Mary does value her hangers on, doesn’t she. And what a bunch they are!

    Doug with his puerile rubbish, Fedup who is clearly insane, and Macky with her sneers and her Craig-bashing.
    Not a bunch I’d want to call my fans. Ever. Anywhere.

    I was not “masquerading as nuid.” I announced the proposed name-change well in advance, and made sure the mod (and everyone else) was aware of it. Yahoo.co.uk were threatening to halt POP3 services to yahoo.co.uk email and I was forced to change my email address anyway. Later, I got fed up with the name “nuid” and changed back to Dreoilin – again having warned of the change well in advance, and publicly, here on the blog. At least that thread gives the lie to Doug’s stupid allegation that I’m a ‘Zionist supporter’. You forgot that bit.

    You claimed that
    “FAO the other blog users, these degenerates currently bent on shutting up ROS have used the same tactic on many other occasions to suppress and silence others”

    But now that Cryptonym has been explained (by Tony M), you are left with not one name, not a single one, of anyone who has been “suppressed and silenced” by us. You’re a liar and a fraud. Like Ben.

    BTW, Ben needs to read up on Irish myths and legends. St Patrick was never said to have thrown physical snakes out of Ireland. The snakes referred to were pagan druids. Look it up. Your snide remarks may cause some hilarity among idiots like Macky, but they’re based in ignorance. As is a whole lot of nonsense that passes for ‘Irishness’ in the United States, Australia, and elsewhere. Sheer uneducated nonsense.

    But hey, ignorance hardly matters when you’re playing to the gallery, eh?

    You disgust me. The whole lot of you.
