Meeting Livestream 376


The Fringe Meeting at which I am speaking will be livestreamed on Saturday from 12.30 on IndependenceLive.

Meanwhile, Emily has started her own blog.

I had a busy day today moving a lot of stuff to move into my new home in Edinburgh tomorrow. But I must briefly comment on a fascinating opinion poll by IPSOS/Mori tonight, which puts the Tories on 32 and Labour on 29 UK wide – and astonishingly the Lib Dems UK score of 9% only just ahead of the SNP’s UK wide score of 8%, even though the latter is concentrated entirely in Scotland. One reason that SNP figure is so high is that IPSOS MORI weight by certainty to vote, and are predicting a much higher turnout in Scotland than England at the next election.

The scenario leading straight to independence – a Tory/UKIP coalition at Westminster and a crushing SNP victory in Scotland – is looking increasingly probable. One thing I do not rule out at all is a unionist Con/Lab coalition in Westminster after the next general election. There are almost no real policy differences between them, and if coalition becomes the swiftest way to satisfy personal ambition for power and money on both sides (the only thing that drives both parties), I so not think it is in the least improbable. We have seen Lab/Con coalitions against the SNP in Dundee and Stirling Councils, and they were extremely happy together during the referendum campaign. I do not yet see a Lab/Con coalition as the most probable outcome of the next Westminster election. But it is entirely possible.

    A victim of the Westminster paedophile abuse scandal has claimed he saw a Conservative MP murder a young boy during a depraved sex party.

    And the Sunday People can reveal that detectives are investigating THREE murders allegedly linked to a network of VIP perverts.

    The horrifying account comes days after Scotland Yard confirmed they have launched a murder probe ­connected to allegations of sex abuse from the 1970s and 80s.

    Today the Sunday People and Exaro investigations agency expose the full extent of shocking events the witness, known as Nick, has described to the Metropolitan Police paedophile unit.

    Nick claims the first death was of a boy aged ten or 11 who was ­deliberately run down by a car.

    Another chilling allegation is that he was in the same room in the 1980s when a 12-year-old boy was strangled by a Tory MP.

    Nick said: “I watched while that happened. I am not sure how I got out of that. Whether I will ever know why I survived, I am not sure.”

    Eighteen months later, he claims a third boy was killed by two unknown men in front of another MP.

    Nick told of his terror as he and the strangling victim were driven to an orgy.

    UK’s public-funded Israeli propaganda network, British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), TV director Danny Cohen has announce to produce a documentary of the 1961 ‘kangaroo trail’ of Nazi leader Adolph Eichmann as part of BBC’s 70th anniversary of the ‘liberation’ of Auschwitz-Birkenau labor camp by Joseph Stalin’s Russian soldiers. Eichmann was sentenced to death for committing crimes against Jewish people without authentic evidence and subsequently executed by the Zionist regime.

    It’s another desperate move by the BBC to counter further isolation of the Zionist entity even among its Western supporters like Sweden, Britain, France, Ireland and Iceland.

    The 90-minute documentary, entitled ‘The Eichmann Show’ will feature Martin Freeman playing TV producer Milton Fruchtman with Anthony LaPaglia starring as TV director Leo Hurwitz – all Jewish.

    Eichmann himself admitted to being a staunch Zionist, ever since he had studied Theodor Herzl’s booklet ‘The Jewish State’ as part of his S.S. training. In 1937, along with his wife, Eichmann visited British occupied Palestine as guests of World Zionist movement. In 1938, Eichmann expelled nuns from a convent in Vienna and allowed a group of Zionist Jews to establish a terrorist training camp. He also attended the 35th anniversary of Theodor Herzl death. In 1939, he protested against the desecration of Herzl’s grave in Vienna.

    Fred, you said: “Before the referendum Alex Salmond told us that oil prices were going to average $110 a barrel and not go lower than $99.”
    ……………

    Can you reference that please?

    On BBC Radio Scotland Salmond said: “…we put forward a reasonable oil forecast of a $100 a barrel.”

    I can’t find a reference to him predicting that oil will “not go below $99” but I did find that the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) predicted oil at $128.

    http://wingsoverscotland.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/psdm.jpg

    The DECC is of course a government Westminster department.

    You later said:

    “If Westminster had made claims before the referendum which turned out to be so far wrong so soon after…”
    ……………

    Well they did Fred as you will see in the above link.

    You also ignored the point about Saudi Arabia deliberately lowering the price of oil, something that happened after the referendum.

    Do you not have anything to say on that?

    What do you have to say about Mr Salmond (he of the confident $100 per barrel prediction) being an economist by training and having worked for several years as an oil economist?

    Should a former oil economist be making rash predictions like that?

    An MP feared he was on a ‘hit list’ after drawing up a dossier that threatened to expose a suspected Westminster paedophile ring, a close friend has claimed

    Tory Geoffrey Dickens was so afraid he hid copies of his damning files – naming eight public figures suspected of child abuse – in a “safe place”.

    The MP also told Geoff Hope he had a secret alliance with former Labour minister Barbara Castle, who had her own dossier naming 16 MPs and Lords.

    Both politicians’ claims are at the heart of a public inquiry and police investigation into allegations of child sex abuse at Westminster in 70s and 80s.

    The late Mr Dickens handed the then Home Secretary Leon Britten his dossier in 1983. It has since gone missing.

    Mr Hope, 83, has decided to speak out after being disgusted by the Wanless Report, a Home Office inquiry that has failed to locate the documents.

    He said: “Geoffrey feared repercussions for his family and friends. He said he had names that would ‘blow the roof off Westminster’.”

    Mr Hope ran a service station near Mr Dickens’ constituency home and was a family friend. He said the MP came in with his dossier in the 80s.

    “He used to pop in on Saturdays for a chat,” said Mr Hope. “This time he had a document case. I jokingly asked if it was full of money but he said it was his research into paedophiles.

    “He said MPs, people in the church, and in other high places were involved.

    I’m now almost convinced that the dossiers, are in the hands of either MI5 or MI6, after a previous and now dead MI6 chief has been implicated in the sordid affair.

    Good attempt at diversion, but in vain.

    Is it not the case that Mr Salmond’s employers – when he was an “oil economist” (LOL)- were the Royal Bank of Scotland?

    With economists of Mr Salmond’s caliber, it’s perhaps not surprising that RBS ended up where it did.

    The Siege of Julian Assange is a Farce
    John Pilger

    November 16, 2014

    The siege of Knightsbridge is a farce. For two years, an exaggerated, costly police presence around the Ecuadorean embassy in London has served no purpose other than to flaunt the power of the state. Their quarry is an Australian charged with no crime, a refugee from gross injustice whose only security is the room given him by a brave South American country. His true crime is to have initiated a wave of truth-telling in an era of lies, cynicism and war.

    “Mr Scorgie and Fred”
    “Yes, and what makes the thing even more comical is that Mr Salmond is an economist by training and even worked for several years as an oil economist!”
    ……………

    As you know Habbabkuk making predictions on future oil prices is a gamble but making such predictions is something that all economists do; including those in Westminster.

    The DECC predicted a future price of $128!
    ……………

    “Which leads one to think that he was selling the electorate a false prospectus in order to win the referendum.”
    ……………

    Don’t forget Habbabkuk the government, which led the NO campaign, have yet to concede any extra powers to Scotland promised in the “vow” offered before the referendum.

    Perhaps Salmond’s prediction was a reasonable one at the time but Saudi Arabia’s unpredicted shenanigans to deliberately lower the price of oil took many by surprise.

    Which in turn renders nugatory Mr Scorgie’s whine (above) that Mr Salmond “could do nothing about that””, doesn’t it.

    Not so, what could he have done about the Saudi Arabia decision Habbabkuk?

    Another point being that economics is not science but a social science which includes other fields like anthropology, political science, psychology and sociology.

    At a distance of 7,000 miles, an estate agent in Colorado is selling settlements on stolen Palestine land to Americans. It helps if you are Jewish to be able to buy one though.

    Why is a Colorado firm selling apartments in Israel’s illegal settlements?

    November 14, 2014 http://www.intifada-palestine.com/2014/11/colorado-firm-selling-apartments-israels-illegal-settlements/

    ‘The Colorado-based real estate firm RE/MAX is profiting from Israel’s relentless theft of Palestinian land.

    Active in the Israeli market since 1995, RE/MAX sells and rents houses and apartments in colonies reserved exclusively for Jews in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem. Much of that work is coordinated in an office that the Israeli subsidiary of RE/MAX runs in Maale Adumim, a major settlement in the West Bank.

    A United Nations report published last year suggested that the firm’s parent company in the US could be “held accountable” for assisting Israel’s crimes. RE/MAX International, which is headquartered in Denver, “has constant interaction and influence” over its franchises around the world. The company also provides “brand name affiliation,” training and other services, according to Richard Falk, the report’s author, who was then the UN special rapporteur for the West Bank and Gaza.’

    Mr Scorgie (17h59)

    Thank you for replying (for once).

    “As you know Habbabkuk making predictions on future oil prices is a gamble but making such predictions is something that all economists do;”

    That is true, Doug, but not all economists, nay, oil economists, get their prediction so spectacularly wrong. Thank goodness.

    Moreover, not all economists lake their predictions with the aim of swaying the outcome of an election or referendum.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    “Another point being that economics is not science but a social science which includes other fields like anthropology, political science, psychology and sociology.”

    Indeed so, Doug. Which is another reason why economists should be very cautious, especially when they are making predictions which might sway the result of an election or referendum. Or is the economist Mr Salmond more of a common garden politician than an economist?

  • DoNNyDarKo

    Salmond is no position to sell, but the UK have been selling “used” oil wells to companies armed with new technology for squeezing the lemon dry so to speak.

    Now let me see, Westminster has had oil/gas revenue from the North sea nigh on 50 years now, how much of an oil fund has the UK built up to rely on in times of need.

    Oh that’s right, the UK doesn’t have an oil fund so we have zero, nil, nada, zilch nothing to fall back on.

    Alex Salmond’s starting to look like J.D. Rockerfeller next to you and Westminster, with regards to oil.

    I’ve been told that using upper case on the internet is equivalent to shouting.

    Why are you shouting, Mary?

    UK media watchdog Ofcom has threatened RT with “statutory sanctions,” having ruled the TV channel “failed to preserve due impartiality” in four of its news bulletins aired in March this year and covering events in Ukraine.

    We at RT want to reassure our commitment to Ofcom requirements and state that our channel is devoted to continuing to abide by these requirements. But it also remains to be seen if other British broadcasters would be able to pass the monitor’s impartiality test, or if other broadcasters will stick to the same rules and conditions, which is currently hardly the case.

    Same recipe they used to close down Iran’s impressive PressTV, instead we get the Ziostani-run BBC, committed Zionist Murdoch’s lazy prejudices and well that’s about it really, but for some dual-national oligarchs fingers deeply into most print media outlets. Outlets being the operative word, for what is emitted is a sort of gaseous fart-like miasma.

    @Fred “Gaza does have a university, the Islamic University of Gaza, ”
    “Does that mean that only Muslims are allowed to attend, Fred?”
    ……………

    Now then Habbabkuk, is your “non-racist” veil slipping?

    “The [Gaza Christian] community offers private schools for the younger children, but most Christian youths attend public high schools and later vie to get into Islamic University, considered the best in Gaza.”

    “In those environments, Christian youths mix with deeply devout Muslim students and teachers — and [some] parents worry about their influence rubbing off onto their children.”

    http://www.haaretz.com/news/middle-east/gaza-christians-fear-the-end-of-their-tiny-community-1.453643

    So you see Habbabkuk the Islamic University of Gaza is open to all Gaza’s citizens regardless of religion.

    However, having said that, it is not open to anyone at the moment:

    On 2nd August 2014 Israeli forces destroyed the Islamic University of Gaza by firing multiple missiles into the building.

    ……………

    What’s the matter with you Fred?

    My points that you haven’t addressed:

    You said: “Before the referendum Alex Salmond told us that oil prices were going to average $110 a barrel and not go lower than $99.”

    I asked; can you reference that please? You have not answered.

    Why no back-up on what you claimed Fred?

    I informed you that the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) predicted oil at $128 [and I provided a link to back-up what I said] so the DECC got it more wrong than Salmond did. Any comment on that?

    You have ignored my point about Saudi Arabia deliberately lowering the price of oil, something that happened after the referendum. Why is that Fred?

    I await an erudite and comprehensive response.

  • fred

    “I await an erudite and comprehensive response.”

    I know what you want.

    My figures are plain and unambiguous. You have already conceded that what Alex Salmond said before the referendum was untrue and that is all that matters.

    “The BBC4 show, called Asylum, is described as “a satirical comedy about a government whistle-blower and a millionaire internet entrepreneur trapped together in a London embassy”.

    So if the “millionaire internet entrepreneur” is based on Julian Assange, who will the government whistle-blower be based on?

    CM perhaps?
