Assange Judge’s Husband Runs Security Firm With Ex Head of MI6 1235


“Security Intelligence Consultancy” SC Strategy Ltd has only three directors. One is the husband of the judge in yesterday’s Assange ruling. One is the former Head of MI6, Sir John Scarlett, who is synonymous with crooked security operations and personally wrote the notorious dossier of lies on Iraqi WMD, thus causing the subsequent deaths of millions of people. One is Lord Carlile, who was notably close to protected Establishment paedophiles Greville Janner and Cyril Smith. Is the British Establishment not endlessly fascinating?

The corporate media has published no information about “Lady” Arbuthnot’s background and sinister links at all, despite the fact it is uniformly carrying her jibes at Assange as a major story. There can be no clearer example of the fact that it is the corporate media which, deliberately and systematically, spreads fake news, while bloggers get out the actual facts via social media.

To anyone to whom British corruption is not axiomatic, it appears pretty rum that the judge in the Assange case is married to a government parliamentarian and close to the security services.

“Lady” Arbuthnot’s Husband

There is some interesting background in the Mirror here. The taxpayer paid £1,200 in restaurant bills for “Lady” Arbuthnot and her husband in one long weekend jaunt to Turkey alone.

If anybody thinks the Assange case had anything to do with justice, they are very mistaken. Please read my analysis of “Lady” Arbuthnot’s judgement here.

    The Scottish and Welsh Governments have both introduced bills to protect both countries from the power grab provisions in the Tory EU Withdrawal Bill that would undermine the devolution settlements.

    Game on. We’ll see which unionist MSPs and AMs put the democratic rights of their country before the colonialist demands of their London masters, and which ones don’t.

  • reel guid

    Tory MSP Adam Tomkins tweets that the SNP Government’s Continuity Bill is illegal and that there’s no need for it. He says that the Scottish and UK governments are “within spitting distance of agreement”.

    LOL. He’s just preaching to the dwindling faithful there.

    • Republicofscotland

      His master Colonel Rape Clause Ruth Davidson, was said to be furious over the Continuity bill.

      Meanwhile according LBC, Boris Johnson has just smashed John Bercow’s office window at Westminster with a snowball.

        Vandalism from a Tory Foreign Secretary. Trying to imagine similar behaviour from previous holders of the office.

        David Owen bending car aerials. Margaret Beckett spraying graffiti at a bus shelter. Lord Carrington setting fire to wheelie bins. Geoffrey Howe knocking the heads off daffodils. Alec Douglas-Home smashing up a phone box.

  • reel guid

    The chief law officer in the Scottish Government, the Lord Advocate has pronounced the Continuity Bill to be legal. But Davidson, Tomkins and Co are saying it’s illegal.

    I wonder who BBC Scotland will believe to be the greater legal expert? Davidson or James Wolffe QC?

    We know the BBC will pretend that it’s Davidson.

    When I first saw this video yesterday, I initially thought that whoever took the video outside, was using a microphone without a windsock, and the noise on the soundtrack was wind. However, I then realised that the noise was actuall bombs falling around British journalist’s Tom Duggan’s home in Damascus. Apparently he has a Syrian wife. The bombs were coming from The British Financed and trained (by The SAS) jihadist headchoppers. It’s very interesting to read Ba’al comments, as a wonderful example of the effect of mainstream media’s propaganda. He is a highly intelligent man, yet even he believes the nonsense he is being fed. Maybe even Gavin Williamson does too. Going to war with Russia, based on American lies, is not a particularly good idea. For one thing, we are certain to lose, even if we survive it.

    “Exclusive: British journalist destroys MSM lies on Syria”

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjOSZ6QgGgY

    I can completely understand Ba’al’s point of view. He finds it extremely difficult to believe, that us British, our British Government could be that evil. Unfortunately, all the documented facts prove that at least since 1999, when we bombed the hell out of Yugoslavia, that it is, and yes, I believed the propaganda in 1999 too, but it still didn’t make any sense.

    ..”All these factions share the same Takfiri ideology and financial support from Gulf countries. Some of them are directly supported by Western powers. All these factions are responsible for thousands of dead, and tens of thousands of wounded civilians in the city of Damascus. They all rain mortar shells and missiles on Damascus on daily basis and are considered by more than 7 million residents of greater Damascus as the worst terrorists, criminals who deserve to be eradicated with no empathy to terrorists whatsoever.”

    • Tony_0pmoc

      Paul Barbara,

      Your link to the Independent was from 2015, and this is what our RAF jets did. I think they’ve given up since The Russians got involved. In fact the Syrians are showing signs, of starting to rebuild some of the cities that have been destroyed by The West and our Terrorist Proxies, since they have been liberated by the Syrian Government Army with the help of The Russians.

      I am totally ashamed that our country has contributed to such appalling devastation (again). If it doesn’t stop, London could soon look like this. This was done with conventional weapons. Russia has nuclear weapons. Why are we threatening to go to war with them? Has our Government gone completely insane?

          There is a difference, you see: the Russians, and particularly the Syrians, have no desire to either kill Syrians, or to destroy Syrian infrastructure.
          But I’m sure even you are aware that the US couldn’t give a tuppenny f**k, the more killed and destroyed, the merrier for them.

        • SA

          Kempe
          The US is notorious for destroying infrastructure deliberately. They did that in Belgrade where they not only destroyed bridges and power stations but even bombed the TV station. The last Iraq war started with the obscene spectacle shown on out TV screens nightly, of what was euphemistically described as shock and awe which was death and destruction to civilians and infrastructure. That was the time when I decided that journalism was dead in the west and stopped watching TV.

          • Kempe

            So you seriously believe that Assad/Putin are fighting a clean war and that the bombed hospitals, destroyed electricity, phone and water networks are not their fault.

            It would be funny if it weren’t so tragic.

          • SA

            Unlike invaders with vested interest in lucrative reconstruction deals as part of the war booty, leaders of thier own country have the opposite incentive, to preserve the infrastructure. Sometimes however it is impossible to achieve this. But of course you can only see that if you also stop believing that these leaders are killing thier own people for the hell of it as we are constantly told by our Jahidi financing politicians.

      ” the Prime Minister said there was “growing support” across Parliament to join a growing international coalition in Syria.
      “We will be acting with our allies, we will be careful and responsible as we do so, but in my view it’s the right thing to do this to keep our country safe,” ”

      Sounds a bit Blairish to me. One wonders why her bete noir Boris stands up in Parliament and supports Al Qaida if she is concerned about keeping this country safe. What she should have said is ” No, I’m not going to eat David Cameron’s vomit, and anyway Boris doesn’t regard it as vomit, he says it’s delicious, fresh, Foreign Office vomit. Some of the best he’s ever tried.

        ‘UK Threatens Damascus With Airstrikes if There’s Proof of Chemical Weapons’ Use’:
        https://sputniknews.com/world/201802271062028356-uk-airstrikes-syria-chemical-weapons/

        ‘…British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has stated that the UK might support airstrikes against the Syrian government if there’s evidence of chemical weapons’ use.
        “If we know that it has happened, and we can demonstrate it, and if there is a proposal for action where the UK could be useful then I think we should seriously consider it,” Johnson told BBC.

        The statement comes a day after the infamous White Helmets NGO claimed that the Syrian government had deployed chlorine gas against the town of Al-Shifoniya in Eastern Ghouta, allegedly killing one child and causing “widespread suffocation” among the local civilians. While being praised by the Western governments, the White Helmets group, also known as the Syrian Civil Defense, has previously been accused of falsifying information about its work in Syria and staging “rescue” attempts in its propaganda videos.

        When asked to comment on the allegations, the Pentagon, however, stated that the US currently sees no evidence of chemical weapons’ use.

        Previously, the same threat was voiced by French President Emmanuel Macron, who stated earlier this month that France would launch strikes if the fact that the Syrian government had used weapons of mass destruction (WMD) against its civilians was proven…..’

        We know damn well that CW’s are going to be used, indeed there were credible reports a day or two ago that chlorine was used; the only problem is, the West’s proxy headchoppers used it before, three lorry loads of chlorine were reported to have crossed into Syria from Turkey a week ago, so it’s ‘gung ho’ for a ‘False Flag’ then hostilities against Assad.

            Here are three articles (notice their dates); yet instead of postponing their plans because the plan had been exposed, the West continued, aware that the MSM would push whatever they were told to push, and further that the great majority of the public would fall for whatever they were told:

            Of course, if he speaks off the cuff sometimes, he can make a colossal mess of it, but even a parrot can repeat what it is taught to say on occasion.
            All so obviously orchestrated.
            Syria is in an unenviable position, with Turkey occupying parts of Syria and attacking the Kurds, Israel sporadically attacking Syria with aircraft, rockets and artillery, and the US ‘Coalition’ occupying illegal bases on Syrian territory, plus of course the hordes of ‘Moderate’ headchopping foreign mercenaries armed, trained and mostly protected by the US and it’s crony ‘Coalition’ War Criminals.
            PLUS, the ever-present CW ‘False Flag’ option.

Refugees trudge across Europe thanks to your humanitarian bombing. Propaganda, climate denial, lobbying and war. Poison in your taps. Pesticides and herbicides oozing from your GM crops. Your last three presidents have destroyed dozens of cultures in just twenty years. And since 9/11 you spent $8.3 million dollars per hour on war. thousand military bases outside your borders and not a inkling of what to do with all that power except reach for more. Who’s going to argue with Democracy at it’s most exceptional?

        Paul Barbara,

        Lying psychopaths, and the brainwashed will have no problems passing a lie detector test. In order to fail a lie detector test, you need to be relatively normal, and feel guilt and emotion when lying.

        Psychopaths have no problem passing such tests when blatantly lying when they know it, because they have no empathy or conscience.

        The brainwashed have no problem passing such tests, because they actually believe the lies, and think they are telling the truth.

        Brainwashing is exceedingly common. Psychology is very powerful, and there is little defence to incessant propaganda, when fed it by multipe sources every day.

    A lot can change in an hour. Looks like my lad will be skiing tomorrow down Box Hill. He should be O.K. he’s got 4WD. About 10 years ago he was out in his soft top sports car with his girlfriend, and in an hour it bucketed it with snow. They couldn’t move, and no one could get to them. I was really worried about them, and just said to him on his mobile. You need to keep running your engine and heater off and on through the night. They decided to leg it at 7:00 am in the morning, and a very kind person in a 4WD gave the kids a lift home.

      They could only push Trump’s ‘chemical warfare red line’ buttons because he was new to politics and he told Russia and Syria where he was going to bomb in advance. They can’t pretend Theresa May and Boris Johnson are new to politics, but they might try it on with Gavin Williamson if they can get his dummy out his mouth.
      This old chestnut, Syrian chemical weapons, is the concoction of MI6 boss Alex Younger of the chestnut hair, and he can tell his privy counsellors what line to toe. Boris can compare Eastern Ghoutta with Stratford East, outside the Congestion Zone but May can’t afford to look like a liar or plain stupid while she is trying to persuade us to accept a hard Brexit. “Oh! What a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive”.

      How delicious. that by throwing a spanner in the works of the UK establishment, by voting for leaving the EU, we have succeeded in castrating MI6. They still lie, but no politician will touch the lie while they are under the microscope of Brexit.

  • James Joddle

    Making Boris Johnson take a lie-detector test is a joke. Publicising the petition to get him drug-tested is what we should be doing. That’s not a joke.

    It’s an open secret in the Westminster bubble that Boris is a heavy cocaine user, making him short-fused, irrational, changeable, and causing him to suffer from the trait that whatever he has decided to focus on at that moment must be the most important thing in the world. No-one takes the prat seriously as Foreign Secretary, and it’s best for everyone that he leaves office fast. He can go to a rehab centre or he can take over from George Osborne at the Standard if Evgeny Lebedev wants him to – it doesn’t matter.

    You can sign the petition here.

    Here is an image they are using. (Can anyone make a better one? Then do it.)

    Don’t forget the scandal that Boris Johnson was involved in with Danielle Fleet. He sued nobody. Why? Because it’s true.

    Don’t forget the “40 Tory names” scandal either, that was covered on this blog.

    He’s on tape planning to get a journalist beaten up too. Why the fuck is this man is office? Listen: if we bring Boris down, we will probably also bring Theresa May down. She appointed him. Even on the current Ireland issue, why did she keep quiet about what wrote? Right. Boris is the weakest link in the cabinet. Bring him down NOW and we’ve got a chance of a general election which can put Labour in power.

    In 2013 the government wanted to bomb Assad but couldn’t get parliamentary backing.
    In 2015, they sent the bombers in to Syria to “protect” Assad from Isis.
    In 2018, they want to bomb Assad again.
    I’d love to hear Johnstone try to justify the UK’s Syria policy over the last 5 years.

    The damage being caused to Syria is not a by-product of the fighting, it is intentional. Israel and the West intend to reduce the country to rubble, like they did to Libya. They will succeed, then move on to Iran.

    Iran knows it’s coming and has had years to prepare, but they won’t be able to stop it, just delay it, make it messier for the West. Their infrastructure will be destroyed – power, water, houses, roads, schools, hospitals, even the air they breath will be poisoned. Millions will die, and the survivors will live in misery.

    The intention isn’t regime change, it’s destruction. Kempe and others will continue justfying it.

        We’re on Plan C according to the ridiculous justifications of the British government.
        But we’re actually on Plan A – and it’s going swimmingly so no need to change it – to reduce Syria to a permanently ungovernable hell-hole whose inhabitants are too busy struggling to survive to present a challenge to the Israeli empire.

        • SA

          Node I disagree with you on two accounts. In 2015 we did not send bombers to protect Assad against Isis, we sent bombers to keep our foot in the door and be able to a later stage to bomb Assad as happened in September 2016 when we admitted that we took part in the bombing of the SAA in Tardah mountains ‘by mistake’. The other point is your deep pessimism. The original attempt at regime change has failed several times and we are probably beyond plan C. I think there is a slow realisation that things will not happen the way the US wanted them to be. Lets wait and see.

            On the first point, I agree with you. I was stating the UK’s given excuse for getting a foot in the door.

            On the second point, I believe regime change has always been a red herring. It has been a convenient tactic to stir up opposition and enable the West to portray Assad as slaughtering his own people. But I don’t believe it was ever the aim. Remember when Saddam wanted to talk peace but the West preferred instead to destroy Iraq? Regime change can be undone faster than rebuilding a country which has been bombed into the stone age. Permanent removal of a threat to Israel is the goal.

    No public support from the Labour leadership for the Continuity Bills introduced in the Senedd and Holyrood. Even though it’s a Labour government in Wales that is bringing the legislation.

    Is it going to be Catalonia all over again with Corbyn? Tacitly going along with larger nation right wing authoritarianism in order that small nation nationalism makes no progress. All so Labour can retain hope of making electoral gains in Scotland, which they still see as their entitlement.

    Corbyn thinks the Tories can do his dirty work and scupper the devolution settlement, thereby demoralising Scotland and, he hopes, creating the conditions for his party to recoup their electoral losses in Scotland’s central belt.

    Corbyn wants to force Scotland to a hard exit from the EU. Opposes a second indyref. Pretends he’s not hard brexit with his customs union plan. He’ll stand on the sidelines while the Tories try to trash the devo settlements in Scotland and Wales. Perhaps making a dishonest and insincere token of support to the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish people. All the while rubbing his hands in anticipation that Scotland will be demoralised by Tory colonialism and devolution is finished. Then he can move in and win seats to help in his power quest.

        Three men have been arrested. I did wonder if there was a racist element to the tragedy. The mother and sons were from the Indian sub continent and the shop was Polish.

          Many Polish shops are managed by Kurdish people, including one of my extended family.
          The upstairs flats get let. In Kurdistan gas is delivered in bottled form like calor. It’s conceivably possible that there is some cultural misunderstanding about the dangers of mains gas. I myself can’t think of anything else that could make this kind of blast. But the police have asked us not to speculate.

      Chemtrails…. out of interest is there any barmy conspiracy theory you DON’T subscribe to? Flat earth? Vaccines? Moon landings?

      • Paul Barbara

        @ Kempe February 28, 2018 at 14:12
        I certainly believe vaccines contain poisons (that’s not a theory, it’s a FACT). I have just read a book by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.: Thimerosol – Let The Science Speak’. He is pro-vaccine, but highly anti mercury in vaccines. You’d do well to read it – might stop your knee-jerk ‘conspiracy theory’ reaction in future.
        And I don’t believe the Yanks sent men to the moon, ever.
        I also know that the West couldn’t give a sh*t about Syrians, or them being killed by Chemical Weapons, and that they have arranged for the headchoppers to receive Chemical Weapons, which they have used in ‘False Flag’ scenarios.
        Any more questions?

        • Paul Barbara

          @ Kempe February 28, 2018 at 23:04
          Hmmm, I should have read more widely, already? The link you gave was a blog post by ‘Orac’.
          If you checked, on the very same blog in which his BS appears, it explains who ‘Orac’ is:
          ‘Who is Orac?’: https://respectfulinsolence.com/who-is-orac/
          ;..Thimerosol was phased out in the 1990s and those vaccines based on attenuated live viruses (such as MMR) never contained it in the first place…’
          MSM most assuredly used to contain mercury, as Thimerosal – this is widely documented.

          http://sciencenordic.com/mmr-vaccine-science-exposes-biggest-myths
          ‘…Myth 1: MMR vaccine contains Mercury
          This is a very common misconception, but actually the MMR vaccine has never contained mercury, which is a neurotoxin. The misunderstanding arose because people often confuse vaccines with each other.
          Mercury was used in childhood vaccines against whooping cough, and it was argued that it could be the cause of autism. Mercury is also found, though rarely, in some influenza vaccines. However, there is no link to autism.
          The myth has arisen due to the use of thimerosal, an antimicrobial molecule which contains ethylmercury, but its use in vaccines ended globally in 1990.
          Studies of autism in children show that removal of thimerosal from the vaccination program, had absolutely no effect on the occurrence of autism. If thimerosal was an important factor, then it would have resulted in a sharp drop in the number of autism cases in children vaccinated without thimerosal. This is not the case.
          These kinds of studies have been carried out in many countries, and none have demonstrated a correlation between autism and thimerosal.
          “There is more mercury in a can of mackerel in tomato sauce, than in a vaccination shot,” says Jan Pravsgaard Christensen, professor of infectious immunology at the University of Copenhagen…..’

          Why on earth did I post that, which on the face of it supports your contention?
          Because though it calls it a ‘myth’, it later admits that it contained Thimerosal, which is 50% mercury!
          Maybe next time you suggest I read more widely, you will do better than confront my ‘contentious’ point of view with better than a quirky blogger.

          ‘….Thimerosol was phased out in the 1990s and those vaccines based on attenuated live viruses (such as MMR) never contained it in the first place….’

          Sure they started to phase it out in the 1990’s – but why, if it was so harmless? Just because it had become contentious? Surely that’s not how the CDC and other bodies work, is it?
          As for MMR never having contained it, that really shows you know absolutely sweet FA about the subject.

          As for the Assad’s previous activities, Bashar’s father was certainly a ‘bad ‘un’, but he himself, whilst no saint, has certainly mellowed, and would not be revered by the great majority of Syrians is he was as brutal as you insinuate.
          Who cares more about Syria and the Syrian people, Assad or the Yanks?
          You full well know the answer to that, and to why the Yanks want ‘Regime Change’, and it ain’t ‘Human Rights’ concerns.

    This is the link to show how close we are, re energy supplies, being insufficient to meet demand in The UK now. We are very close indeed. If anything goes wrong, re gas supplies, or a nuclear powerstation breaks down, or it gets even colder, or if we have an anti-cyclone with no wind…Then The UK is in Big Trouble. On the Brightside, my Son took his nearly 2 year old Son sledging today, and they both loved it.

    He will probably be skiing tonight, down Box Hill, if it snows a bit more. Nana and Grandad will happily look after his Babies, including the Newborn, who is still incredibly small…but such is life.

    The weather is historically, completely normal for England. Even in the South East.

    Next year could be considerably colder., and we have no contingency. Our British Government is seriously annoying The Russians, who we get a significant percentage (about 15%) of our gas from. The rest of Europe is much more dependent on Russian energy supplies than we are, but we are all interconnected, and there is absolutely no way, the USA can supply more than a tiny percentage of our energy needs,

    I think The USA is trying to kill most of Europe off, and our incredibly stupid politicians, think the Americans are our friends.

    The Americans want us to go to war with our Russian friends. Europe will be totally frozen then. The Russians will simply turn off all their gas pipelines to us.

    You do not supply your enemy with energy

    These people in control are insane.

    Can someone please complain.

Wonder what this urgency is all about? Do they sense Brexit may be overturned after all? Or is there a Saudi ( I daresay they contribute towards its deficit) contingent at risk in Ghouta?

  • mike

    Good point, MJ. Syria gave Qatar the finger for just such a proposal in 2009. This was a major contributory factor to Qatar’s support for the head-choppers at the start of regime-change operations. Or were al Nusra the heart-eaters? I forget! In any case, I’m sure another rebranding will be along shortly. Perhaps they’ll end up being the moderates so desperately sought by the west. It’s difficult to sell the “good rebels” narrative when the crazies are doing all the fighting.

    • Paul Barbara

      @ mike February 28, 2018 at 17:49
      And there is no way Qatar or Saudi Arabia would be funding and arming these mercenary headchoppers if the US didn’t want them to.
      The US has a long record of using murderous mercenary thugs as proxies for ‘Regime Change’ – they armed street gangs in Jamaica to get rid of Manley, the Contra in Nicaragua to get Regime Change there, the Mujaheddin in Afghanistan to first entice Russia in, then to bleed them (though I believe the Mujaheddin were genuine Muslims fighting what they saw as a Godless Soviet Union trampling on the Muslim Afghans), paid and arranged for the training of Fascist thugs in Ukraine, set up the ‘Stay Behind Armies’ after WW II which they then morphed into ‘Gladio’ in Europe, Turkey and even Latin America, and are up to a the same business of using murderous thugs in many African countries to destabilise them. And of course they arranged the ‘Arab Spring’ with all it’s catastrophic results.

    And here is a Brilliant Interview with

    Dr Marcus Papadopoulos on Sky News Australia about East Ghouta

    ….. “Indded Last week they killed a large number of children, So I think it is quite rich and frankly speaking disraceful that western media is talking about humanitarian em, concern in relation to East Ghouta ”

    … ” You are relying on the white helmets, and no proper legitimate court of law in the World would rely on the white helmets… ”

      As you said, Brian, a brilliant interview. The Australian interviewer’s attitude was strange for a Sky journalist, though. She was almost encouraging him; at least letting him speak without interuption. He certainly wouldn’t have been allowed to voice such opinions on British TV. Krishnan Guramurthy or Evan Davis would be shouting over him before he could finish the sentence “The white helmets are a propaganda weapon.”

  • Tony_0pmoc

    To give you an idea of how completely and utterley powerful The German Bundesbank are compared to The Elite European Bereaucrats, compared to The European Politicians (I think I have got The EU Power Structure in order)

    Read Yanis Varoufakis book “And the Weak Suffer What They Must? ”

    I read a lot of books, and am about 2/3rds the way through this…

    Like a good film, it starts slow, but when you get past halfway, it gets really interesting…

    I guess whilst he was writing it the clever bastards, would already have read it, before he finished writing it, by hacking his computer. But it still got published..

    The rest of the stupid incompetant EU bureaucrats (many of them who’m he reckons are somewhere between H1tler , Mussolini and Franco (ie not exactly very nice people)..and the politicians – Will almost certainly not get half way through reading the book, and find out, that they have not only been named, but Yanis Varoufakis, describes in detail absoultely everything he knows about them) (and thinks about them)

    They reckon people like me will never read it…

    He obviously knows The Americans think control the overall system, and actually has some good words for Margaret Thatcher of all people…but

    whilst we “us Anglo/Americans” think we are in control of These European Lunatics…

    He actually EVEN Now gives us a free pass…

    He actually thinks we are better and less evil – than The EU nutters

    That really surprised me. i thought we were far worse, but he says we are better.

    But I’ve got a few chapters to read yet…he might not have named all our evil bastards, or no one’s read it yet. It is a fascinating book.

    It is an education

    Off topic information, in the absence of any news coming out as to Assange’s release/move to?? or from anyone dealing with him.

    Italy’s GE could change the nature of Europe’s southern parts. The Lega wants to challenge the EU and pledges to clean Ventimiglia of immigrants, haven’t we heard this before. Europe’s right wing political parties are increasingly sounding like Trump.

    I’m not sure whether Italy will choose Grillo before Salvini, with Forza Italia, Bunga bunga et al and his money men also vying for attention.

    Italy has over 10% unemployment and that is what makes the election unpredictable, imho.

      For years Aberdeen has been the city of boom on oil and gas, yet neither Major nor Thatcher invested in its infrastructure.

      Fastforward to today, and the Tories can’t reach the city due to bad weather. The Brexit impact asessments show Aberdeen will be really badly hit by Brexit. No doubt Davidson will blame the SNP, and the media will back her.
