Dear American Government 

America I have written many thinks about you. America, many of you believe you are the center of Humanity. You are one of the newest people on Earth, Gun control, Racism and Abortion are just 3 of the issues you are figuring out. You are a young nation but you control the World in many ways. Around 150 Million Christian Americans dictate the World we live in today, keep Palestine enslaved. Hamas are not and have never spoke for the VAST Majority of the people in Palestine, by it’s very truth is less than 5% of the population are Hamas, the rest are political victims and Religious casualties, controlled, cap in hand, land locked people, but still a population I guess. I don’t get angry over this issue, so please, if you are CHRISTIAN AMERICA, you have the the love of God in your heart and will love me and all I have to say because your bible told you to do tha….Em hold on, that isn’t right.

See what you guys away in SAFE America fail to understand is, over here in Europe many of us are in the exact same ethical position as the people in Palestine. I said before that when I was a kid I, along with my friends lived in fear of an Irish/London/Elite/Royal War. I understand the fear of this. I live in a Country with no English people at it’s political helm yet English Government control me and my Kin (Family and friends and all Scot’s.) Irish, Bosnian, Polish and many more understand control and oppression within the last 50 years. The same 50 years ago that the USA was the most racist Country on the planet. Below you will hear the truth that there are more Bl@ck men in Prison TODAY than were under slavery in 1850, but I don’t have to remind you America, you know your own History right? 😉 In my Country, to call another Bl@ck is JAIL, and  rightly so, how dare we label another. How do you feel when I blame “Christian America?”

You are over the pond, safe but look over to where I live with 45% of our 7 Billion Earth populous in Europe or 0000.0000000001% if you live in Scotland and I am JUST FINE to be that low number let me tell you. When Scotland free’s herself form London rule and unethical non democratic people I want to stand in my City with my people and sing song’s of rejoice that were born out of murder, rape torture and control. Talk to Irish people you see the same.

Look closer to Home America, my History is as a child and over 1,000 years at least. Your’s is 200 years give or take a decade or 3. You are blind to War’s you MUST FELL you impose o the World. A Russian draft on Iran’s nuclear ENERGY process allowed Europe, China, Russia, Australia, Africa and the USA avoided the USA from bringing War to Iran. We made peace and in your loving Religious hearts you MUST see that as a sign from your God of peace. In Palestine you fail to see the truth. Again all I can show you is what your 5% American World, a VERY SMALL portion of this World, 5% of all People. Yet you are Happy to see War over here from the safe view of the safety of the USA from bombs and suicide bombers. 9/11 was one day, a VERY SAD DAY I STILL CRY OVER. Over here we have lived through this for 2 centuries. You know NOTHING nor CARE what we think. You think the US of A is the center of our World. Sadly your Dollar is being held up by the Bin Laden Family, yeah! The same Bin Laden who Seal Team 6 killed on the spot and threw into a sea of sharks. Check I have the image to prove Bin Laden Died.

fake-osama

As you can clearly see, the official image the USA leaked to the media on the far right is indeed a Dead Bin Laden. The image in the middle is some stranger and the 1st image is….If you can’t see it you don’t want to. This is the reality of the lies being covered over your eyes, you believe it because the News told you. If anyone believes the above image is Bin Laden? Please stop being human and go live in a field eating grass. This is not to you America this is to your Media, Government and Religion. Divide and Conquer was first used by the Roman Empire, then the Soviet Union. the Ottoman EmpireOttoman Empire and the English Empire. All off these “Empires” fell, all were over 50% of Humanity. You are 5%, your Dollar is falling, Jade Helm and ISIS are your new 9/11 and your God has failed you and our World.

Below is a video I CAN PROVE SHOWS AMERICA IS CHANGING AND STARTING TO UNDERSTAND LOVE, EMPATHY, PEACE AND MORE. But you deny it’s essence. LET ME BE CLEAR, if you agree with me you are awake, if you disagree you are asleep. Many off you just abuse me, I try to ask why then you block me. You can’t debate. But you know about the Roman Empire, then the Soviet Union. the Ottoman EmpireOttoman Empire and the English Empire, so you are a clever bunch, your education system is that good you are 37th in literacy. Basically Scotland, Norway, China, Russia, Iran, Palestine are more aware and cleverer than you are. These are factual figures, go check, you are so darn clever so you know how to source information. Below is something that moved me in a BIG way and I felt it in my Hearts as did the people sitting then standing in tears crying at guilt or anger or through murder, rape torture and control. Bl@ck Gospel Choirs sing in rejoice and love. White Christian people who have never been harmed EVER sit and talk about each other and sing the most boring songs you can know, while Bl@ck America ROCKS!!! Born through murder, rape, control and slavery. From slavery came love. What happened? I won’t stop writing this because I come from one of the top 5 Cleverest Countries on Earth and you are stupider than say, Mexico, YES!!! Mexico are more clever than you.

I will now prove everything I said gives me and YOU in the USA hope that things can, will and are changing. Below is probably, for me at least the most powerful emotion I have seen from America in my life. White and Bl@ck people alike stood, clapped and cried at what you are about to view below, a song and 2 American men men, 1 a Muslim who managed to show Humanity (Our World and all the people who  can afford to watch the Oscars that some PEOPLE in the USA are evolving. Sadly, yes, people who love God want to stop this process and all the other process’s I have mentioned above. Don’t be the World joke America “STAND UP”..”HANDS UP” …”HEARTS OPEN” and walk into the World I know and love alone with the rest of the developed World. You ARE waking up but the asleep are sending the rest back to sleep. I love America, I love Americans, my main room here in my Scottish Castle is a shrine to the USA. Why? You can hate me or ask me. You can agree and tell me why or you can disagree and tell me why. Or you can do the EASY THING and hate me 🙂

HERE I PRESENT THE TRUTH THAT THE USA, AND MOST OF IT’S PEOPLE KNOW CHRISTIAN AMERICA HOLD THEM BACK, WHEY AWAKEN SLOWLY 

MORE LOVE, LESS HATE………………..

USA raise possibility of allowing U.N. vote on Palestinian statehood

President Obama said in an interview published Tuesday that it is a challenge for the U.S. to keep demanding the Palestinians negotiate in good faith on the Mideast peace process without a sign that Israel is doing the same.

President Obama said in an interview published Tuesday that it is a challenge for the U.S. to keep demanding the Palestinians negotiate in good faith on the Mideast peace process without a sign that Israel is doing the same.

For too long now our World has sat back and watched the little guy get stamped on, sometimes for reasons, often for no reason. Libya is one real instance where we seen a man killed live on TV yet are ignorant of what he did for Libya. http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-884508 <Click) Example, we had no damn business going into Libya as the end result of all this seen Al Qaeda rename to ISIS. American owned Al Qaeda came in from the West and took over, released all the Al Qaeda Gaddafi had jailed, I have friends who fled back to Scotland due to this. They were angry, some still are, home gone, family dead, in the name of what? Exactly! There was no reason. Now we have seen recently the World Community come to an understanding with Iran and we have peace, yet Religion and Media scare tactics make one Country’s people want to see Iran destroyed. Over where I live Prince Charles shook hands with Sinn Fein Leader Gerry Adams. Adams ‘they say’ was IRA but nobody can be 100% sure. But I seen peace with that handshake HERE <Click) Sadly some here want the anger to carry on. The IRA allegedly blew up Prince Charles uncle in Ireland in a boat bombing, Lord Mountbatten, so for Prince Charles who looked at his murdered Uncle as the Grandfather he never had to shake the hand of the man who allegedly was involved in this was a brilliant peace movement. People are VERY QUICK in foreign shores to say “War” or “Blow them up” or whatever, yet these people have never had to live in a brain dead existence in a World with no War or who have been under Terrorism for long periods of their lives, at this time the IRA could have blown up anywhere, we were scared, I remember. So ho many kids like a young Shaun are in Palestine scared? Do you the reader actually understand living under almost tyrannical rule? Well I kinda have and now I see all this peace with Iran and more I see it as a good sign. Sadly, as said, many idiots worldwide who will never understand this want Palestine kept under a rock, enslaved for Religious Biblical reasons dating back a Millennium and more. The World is freeing Palestine let there be no argument here. I was asked by a Palestinian supporting friend who could not look past their bible in this story, you know the type, make excuses for Israel, many use the Mahmoud Ahmadinejad “Israel should be wiped from the map” comment. Do you know this was said in 2005? Yeah, again history gets in the way, people won’t give peace a chance. Now Obama is coming around to the idea of allowing Palestine to be free he will be hated more by an American public, not all but many who are Bible readers who demand War as long as it’s in the Middle East and not in their back yard. How ironic it is ISIS are littered all over the USA. I was asked just today by a Twitter user “Why would homeland security not just kill ISIS in the USA” Now on the face of it a good question, sadly you can’t see ISIS. ISIS are your next door neighbours, work colleagues, bus and train drivers, people you walk past daily. I get the impression American people expect to see ISIS camps appear all over the USA, no it is not like this, this is not the way ISIS will show itself in the United States of America. The World is recognizing Palestine, 2/3 of the World have done so, soon Palestine will be free with no War and peoples Bibles will have failed them. Then what? I say hatred and War. When Religious people get angry they come at you as a friend with the most obvious counter hate attacks they think you can’t see 😀 Honest I get it daily, just a sentence or picture, just trying to get 1 up. We have a saying here “upmanship” meaning trying to be better than another. I laugh to be fair. But Bible Land, wherever you are, Palestine will be free’d, like the Berlin Wall coming down we will see History unfold before us. France have a resolution and they like most of the World want Palestine free for 2015 reasons. Then we will see exactly what a free Palestine does and looks like. We must try

American President Obama took a step toward a tougher line with Israel in an interview released Tuesday, raising the possibility that the U.S. will allow a United Nations vote on issues related to the Palestinians if the two sides make no meaningful movement toward peace.

In an interview with an Israeli television station, Obama noted that his administration has “up until this point” quashed such efforts at the U.N. while insisting that the Israelis and Palestinians must negotiate a resolution. But he said it is a challenge for the U.S. to keep demanding that the Palestinians negotiate in good faith if no one believes the Israelis are doing the same.

“How do we move off what appears right now to be a hopeless situation and move it back towards a hopeful situation?” Obama asked in the interview. “That will require more than just words. That will require some actions. And that’s going to be hard work, though, because right now I think there’s not a lot of confidence in the process.” The comment was the latest sign that Obama has concluded that the U.S. must rethink its stance on the Mideast peace process if it is to maintain credibility in the world. His thinking on the matter was clearly spurred this spring by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s stand against Palestinian statehood during his election campaign. Even though Netanyahu has since publicly reversed his position, Obama said in the interview that Israel “as a whole loses credibility” on the point.

“If, in fact, there’s no prospect of an actual peace process, if nobody believes there’s a peace process, then it becomes more difficult to argue with those who are concerned about settlement construction, those who are concerned about the current situation,” Obama said. “It’s more difficult for me to say to them, ‘Be patient and wait because we have a process here’ — because all they need to do is to point to the statements that have been made saying there is no process.” Obama’s critical tone toward Netanyahu, describing him as someone who is “predisposed” to “think perhaps that peace is naive,” appeared to return to the tough language that marked administration statements earlier this spring, around the time of the Israeli election. More recently, the White House had seemed to be trying to mend fences.

The apparent shift in tone seems “hard to understand,” said a Democratic strategist with close ties to the White House. Previous White House criticisms of the prime minister clearly strengthened Netanyahu electorally, he said, speaking on condition of anonymity to avoid alienating White House officials. “These kind of attacks don’t really hurt him. They help him.”

Obama’s veiled threat about Palestinian statehood lands hard at a time when the U.S. and other world powers are in high-stakes negotiations with Iranian officials to limit their country’s nuclear program. Israel deeply opposes the deal on the grounds that it will bolster Iran’s nuclear efforts and its economy and boost its aggression in the Middle East; some of Iran’s leaders have said Israel does not have the right to exist. The deadline for a deal, a major foreign-policy priority for Obama, is at the end of the month, and the president is already gearing up for the difficult sales job ahead of him if an agreement is reached. Congress has demanded a chance to review the deal, a point Obama has ceded, but the deep opposition from Israel could complicate his attempts to gain approval from U.S. lawmakers who ardently support Israel.

In advance of that prospect, Obama recently visited a prominent Washington synagogue to talk about his deep love of Israel. Close advisors and friends have tried to underscore the point, with former senior advisor David Axelrod telling Israeli Channel 2 that Obama feels a deep personal affinity for the Jewish people. And in an interview with the Atlantic magazine last week, Obama also talked about his personal commitment to the security of Israel, and idea he mirrored in the new interview with Channel 2’s Ilana Dayan.

Obama told Dayan that the U.S. assistance to Israel on security, intelligence and military matters “doesn’t go away” because it is part of a “solemn commitment that I’ve made with respect to Israel’s security.” But there may be a “practical consequence” if there are new resolutions introduced in the U.N., he said. The peace process could become a bigger problem for Obama in his complicated ties with Israel, but analysts say he has been trying to simplify that relationship lately by explaining himself directly to the Israeli public.

As he prepares to talk about a possible resolution with Iran over its nuclear deal, said one, Obama’s primary message is about his intent. “He has to persuade the Israeli audience that he is preoccupied with the security of Israel,” said Jon Alterman, head of the Middle East program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. “Did wearing a kippa and speaking in a prominent synagogue do the trick? It certainly reinforced a sense of affinity and reassured some people of the nature of his ties to Israel.”

As he spoke with Dayan, Obama drew his own parallels between the African American experience and the Jewish one. “In my mind, there is a direct line between the Jewish experience, the African American experience, and as a consequence, we have, I hope, a special empathy and a special regard for those who are being mistreated because of the color of their skin or the nature of their faith,” Obama said.

Poland Rearms As Fears Of Russian Attack Grow

Poland Rearming Over Russia Fears

These 2 articles I done last year http://shaunynews.com/2014/07/28/full-uk-battle-group-to-join-poland-exercise/ & http://shaunynews.com/2014/04/25/u-s-troops-in-poland-amid-new-killing-and-hostage-taking-in-ukraine/ at the time was a story gathering a lot of pace. Now with the UK sending it’s biggest boat to the Russian sea border it seems Poland are getting ready, not just in-case but for real reasons. The Russia/Ukraine issue has not gone away, it’s gotten worse, the only thing to change is the Media make people look in different directions with news. Missing girls in Nigeria being a decent point in my argument. As always more links below the story and the video below

Poland Rearms As Fears Of Russian Attack Grow
VIDEO Via SKY News on You Tube

Poland’s defence minister has told Sky News his country is facing its greatest security crisis since the end of the Cold War.

Speaking from the ministry of defence in Warsaw, Tomasz ‎Siemoniak said they must be prepared for the situation to deteriorate further, and for Russia to expand its ambitions beyond the annexation of Crimea. “We can see that Russia is going in the direction of restoring the influence it had at the time of the Soviet Union,” Mr Siemoniak said. “If that is the case then the situation is not over by any means with Crimea and it will move on to the territories of other countries, that will either be targeted by aggression or by some other measures taken by the Russian federation, so we have to be ready.‎”

Poland has increased defence spending by 18% to meet NATO’s target of 2% of GDP, as well as expanding the size of its reserves.

The country is undertaking an ambitious rearmament programme, attempting to overhaul its dependence on ageing Soviet-era equipment by 2022. The defence ministry is also drawing up plans to help train and integrate civilian paramilitary groups, which could be mobilised in the event of war.

Volunteer territorial defence organisations have reported a surge in new members since the start of the conflict in neighbouring Ukraine. “Ukraine is our neighbour,” 22-year-old Karol explained. “I think the Polish people need to feel more confident.”

Huberet, a middle-aged architect from Warsaw, who used to take part in Napoleonic battle re-enactments, told us: “This is the history, but in the situation where this Ukrainian conflict is actually 1,000km (621 miles) from us, I made a decision that I have to learn how to fight in these times. “So I have to switch from the horses and sword-fighting to things that are useful in this army today.” In a forest outside Gdansk in northern Poland, we met members of the Strzelec‎, or riflemen, one of the country’s oldest paramilitary groups. They too have seen an influx of applications to join.

We filmed an abseiling training session from a watchtower looking out towards the Baltic Sea. Poland borders Russian military enclave Kaliningrad, 93 miles (150 kilometres) to the east.

A 26-year-old paramedic who gave his name as Kuba said: “Everybody in here shoots by AK-47 and Glock pistol. “We will teach everybody how to shoot, how to rescue people, how to camouflage, how to use radios, basic knowledge in the field.”

Logically, an attack on Poland – a permanent member of NATO – remains extremely unlikely, but it does not feel quite as unthinkable to people here. Asked whether he really felt war was a possibility, whether the threat was real, Kuba replied: “I think everybody who has a clear mind in Europe knows the war is a true possibility, especially in Poland.” ‎Another man, abseiling head-first past our camera, shouted: “History shows us what our neighbours can do.”

Nicola Sturgeon critical of newly published more powers Scotland Bill

She isn't happy, but it will come, in time

She isn’t happy, but it will come, in time

I know this is going over old ground, the 2 video’s were from when Nicola was at Tynecastle Stadium in Edinburgh. They were just posted today. The Smith Commission has not went as far as it should have when the Queen spoke and in the first day off Westminster. I know these powers will come, it may take time but it will happen. David Cameron said “You have the powers now, go and use them” I think unfairly. This is an ongoing story, should the UK leave the European Union I now wonder if Scotland with more devolved powers could stay in Europe alone. I don’t know the laws or rules of the land on this matter. Watch this space, it is taking longer than we hoped, Cameron won’t budge unless the SNP’s 56 Westminster members really keep annoying the Westminster elite. It will come Scotland, keep the faith!!

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has criticised the newly published Scotland Bill saying it falls short in “almost every way”. However, the UK government insisted the legislation fulfilled promises made after the Scottish independence vote. Ms Sturgeon told MSPs the Bill did not contain the welfare powers promised. The 76-page document was published the day after the Queen’s Speech outlined the Conservative government’s plan to give tax-raising powers to Scotland.

Prime Minister David Cameron believed the plan would make Scotland the most powerful devolved assembly anywhere in the world.

Its key elements include:

  • Allowing Holyrood to set thresholds and rates of income tax on earnings in Scotland and keeping all the money raised in Scotland
  • Giving the Edinburgh parliament control over the first 10 percentage points of standard rate VAT revenue raised in Scotland [and 2.5% reduced rate]
  • New welfare powers worth £2.5bn
  • Enabling the Scottish government to vary the frequency of Universal Credit payments in Scotland
  • Providing power to set the rules over a range of benefits which affect carers, disabled people and the elderly
  • and giving control over programmes which help people find work.

The Scotland Bill follows recommendations made by the cross-party Smith Commission which was set up to look at devolving more powers to Scotland.

In response to a question from SNP MSP Kenneth Gibson during First Minister’s Questions at Holyrood, Ms Sturgeon said: “The UK government, I think, had a very clear test today to deliver a bill which lived up in full, in spirit and in letter, to the Smith Commission.

“The bill has been published within the last hour or so and from my glance at it, I think it falls short in almost every area. “The bill, for example, doesn’t contain the full welfare powers recommended by the Smith Commission and in some key powers it retains, unbelievably in my view, given the amount of concern that was expressed about this, it retains a veto for the UK government on key policy areas. “So, for example, if this parliament wants to abolish the bedroom tax, as I hope we do, the UK government would still have a right of veto over whether we could do it or not. Now I’m sorry, but that is not devolution.”

Income tax

However, Secretary of State for Scotland, David Mundell, disagreed with the Scottish government’s assessment. He said: “The government will be delivering the Smith Commission in full, we are starting that parliamentary journey which will lead to the Scottish Parliament having control over income tax in Scotland, over £2.5bn of welfare spend and a raft of other measures which will help economic and job creation.” Mr Mundell added: “Scotland will still hold on to the benefits of being part of the UK that people voted for in the referendum last September. “Sharing risks and resources with the rest of the UK is good for everyone in the UK when it comes to vital matters such as pensions, currency, trade and national security.”

If the bill passes the usual parliamentary hurdles it could become law early next year, ahead of the Holyrood elections in May 2016.

What next for Scotland?

Saltire outside Westminster

A new Scotland Bill will be based on recommendations made by the Smith Commission – the cross-party group formed after the independence referendum to look at what additional powers might be handed to Scotland.

But how were its foundations laid? Find out more… <Click)

Nicola Sturgeon vows to block Tories on austerity and repeal of Human Rights Act

eysetsyhtyserh

Scotland as a stand alone country with a devolved parliament does have more powers than a Scotland just being part of the British Union. Nicola has stated as did Alex Salmond they would push the Tory party hard on matters of principle. I think this is why many in England liked Nicola and the SNP and the breath of fresh air we bring to the Union. Remember we were told by David Cameron “Don’t Leave the Union, Lead the Union” http://shaunynews.com/2015/04/24/remember-pre-referendum-scotland-should-lead-the-uk-not-leave-it-more/ Now the SNP have taken the proverbial bull by the horn and tried to lead or have an impact we are demonized almost. I think the Scottish General Elections will tell us if we can win a 2nd Referendum, although I believe we should not have one unless we truly knew we could win it. I think Nicola is pushing hard for the ‘Edinburgh Agreement’ in full as well as the Vow. I wonder if David Cameron who threw back benchers out saying “We should give Scotland full fiscal home rule” is of mind to give Scotland full home rule. Facts are, the SNP and Scotland are only going to get stronger, we are going nowhere, we are the 3rd biggest party in the UK, don’t discount us being 2nd one day in the future if what I hear Northern England is saying is true https://acebreakingnews.wordpress.com/2015/05/14/thousands-back-campaign-for-the-north-of-england-to-join-scotland/

Nicola Sturgeon has vowed to lead opposition to Conservative cuts and plans to repeal the Human Rights Act by working with other parties. The SNP leader said her party would seek to form alliances with other parties to block the Tories’ agenda, which “lacks legitimacy” in Scotland. “The SNP’s priority is ending austerity, and the damage it does to people’s lives – the Tory Government’s priority is ending human rights, and the opportunities for fairness they offer ordinary men and women,” the First Minister said. “To scrap the Human Rights Act would be an appallingly retrograde step,” she added.

Ms Sturgeon has previously said the SNP would provide the “only real opposition” to the Conservatives at Westminster. With a cohort of 56 MPs, the SNP are now the third largest party in the Commons and have already tried to assert their dominance by sitting on the official opposition benches.  Alex Neil, a Scottish cabinet secretary, has written to Michael Gove, the Justice Secretary, to “reiterate the Scottish Government’s opposition to the repeal of the Human Rights Act”.

The First Minister also raised the issue at her meeting with the Prime Minister this month and said Holyrood could refuse to consent to the repeal of the act. “SNP MPs will work across party lines at Westminster to defeat the Tory government on the Human Rights Act – and the SNP Government will invite the Scottish Parliament to refuse legislative consent to scrap it, given the strong devolved dimension,” Ms Sturgeon added. “This important issue illustrates how Holyrood working together with SNP MPs and others at Westminster can challenge a Tory agenda that lacks legitimacy in Scotland – and help the cause of progressive politics across the UK.”

SNP leaders hope to exploit the internal divisions within Labour as they elect a new leader to increase their influence in Parliament.

The SNP’s social justice spokesman at Westminster, Eilidh Whiteford, said: “With Labour all over the place and each of their leadership candidates seemingly getting ready to race even further to the right, the SNP is the only real opposition to unfair Tory cuts in the House of Commons. “People in Scotland can be assured that we will fight George Osborne and David Cameron’s plans to impose more cuts on disadvantaged people at every turn.”

Deadlock is looming over Scotland opt out on EU exit

Cameron claims he has a mandate from the whole of the UK to hold an EU referendum

Cameron claims he has a mandate from the whole of the UK to hold an EU referendum

This is from the ‘National’ Links below. Interesting one this, first real test of SNP in Westminster. Cameron is claiming he has a clear mandate to speak for the whole of the UK. Nicola Sturgeon and others are of the opinion that it should be done country by country, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and England. Will the SNP have enough votes to veto this? If Labour want to try and get back to the Scottish, even UK political table they may be wise to vote with the SNP to close Cameron out. One to watch this. More links at the bottom.

THE SNP and the Tories are heading for deadlock over the EU referendum bill. Yesterday Prime Minister David Cameron said that the UK would leave the EU even if Scotland voted to stay.

The Prime Minister told the Daily Express that he had a mandate from the whole of UK to hold the referendum, and that any decision taken would be for the whole country. “We put forward in our manifesto the clearest possible pledge of an in-out referendum by the end of 2017,” he said. “That has now been backed in a UK General Election and I believe I have a mandate for that”.

He continued: “[The SNP] didn’t give Orkney and Shetland an opt out, or the Borders an opt out [during the Scottish independence referendum] so this is a UK pledge, it will be delivered for the UK.”

Nicola Sturgeon has argued that the UK’s leaving the EU should be dependent on Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland all voting to do so. SNP MPs will table an amendment to Cameron’s EU referendum bill to put that in place. The SNP leader previously wrote: “We are proposing the democratic safeguard that the UK could only exit the European Union if all of the four nations — England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland — voted to do so, as well as the UK as a whole. This amendment, which a team of SNP MPs would table to any EU Referendum Bill in the House of Commons, reflects the claims made by the No campaign in the independence referendum that the UK is a ‘family of nations’, with equal status.”

The make-up of the House means that it is unlikely that the SNP will get enough votes to have their amendment added to the bill without the support of Labour.

Although the SNP refused to be drawn on the matter yesterday, if the amendment falls, it is likely that SNP MPs could then vote against the bill.

Labour’s position is less clear, with leadership frontrunner Andy Burnham saying recently that the party was wrong to deny people a referendum and that he would back an in-out vote on the EU, but only if it was held in 2016.

During the campaign for the General Election, the First Minister had said that the rest of the UK voting to leave, and Scotland voting to remain, could be what leads to another referendum on Scottish independence.

That the General Election was not about a referendum on Scottish independence almost became a mantra for Nicola Sturgeon during the election campaign, so often was she forced to say it. The only way that it might be “appropriate to have a proposal for a referendum” would be if “something material” changed “in terms of the circumstances or public opinion”.

When, at a debate in Aberdeen between the Scottish party leaders, the First Minister was pushed to detail what this material change might be, she replied: “Perhaps if the Tories wanted to drag us out of the European Union against our will, for example. That might change the circumstances.”

The SNP’s Depute Leader Stewart Hosie said: “During the referendum campaign we were repeatedly told Scotland was part of a ‘family of nations’ within the UK. If this is true, then there is an unanswerable case for the people of Scotland’s voice to be heard on this vital issue.

“Our proposal for a ‘double majority’ would mean unless England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland each vote to leave the EU, the UK would remain a member state. This ensures that no nation is dragged out of the EU against the will of its people. Rather than fixating on ripping Scotland and the UK out of the EU, the Tories should get on with ensuring the powers promised to Scotland are delivered.”

Obama Admin Apologizes to U.N. for American Cops Killing Citizens

no_justice_no_peace

LAUGHABLE BY OBAMA AND HIS GOVERNMENT AND CONGRESS! 

~~Story~~

The Obama administration apologized Monday to the United Nation’s Human Rights Council for American law enforcement personnel whom it described as “willfully us[ing] excessive force,” at times with racist motivation. In its defense of its handling of the issue, the administration touts prosecuting over 400 law-enforcement officials and committing itself to take down those found guilty in the future.

The Associated Press reports that the U.N. human rights council—which includes dozens of countries with deplorable human rights records—voiced “widespread concern” about unjust practices by American police. The Obama administration responded by vowing to “rededicate” itself to ensuring that “our civil-rights laws live up to their promise” and touting its punishment of out-of-control personnel:

“We must rededicate ourselves to ensuring that our civil-rights laws live up to their promise,” Justice Department official James Cadogan told delegates, adding that that is particularly important in the area of police practices and pointing to recent high-profile cases of officers killing unarmed black residents.

“These events challenge us to do better and to work harder for progress through both dialogue and action,” he said at the session’s opening. He added that the government has the authority to prosecute officials who “willfully use excessive force,” and that criminal charges have been brought against more than 400 law-enforcement officials in the past six years.

The council presented calls for changes to other U.S. policies, including abolishing the death penalty, curbing NSA surveillance programs, and closing Guantanamo Bay.

Administration officials responded with the standard non-answers. On execution, Deputy Assistant Attorney General David Bitkower explained that the “controversy” over executions in America was an ongoing “extensive debate.” As for U.S intelligence gathering, Bitkower vaguely defended the programs by saying they are “subject to stringent and multilayered oversight mechanisms.”

As for the call to close Gitmo, Brig. Gen. Richard Gross said President Obama has called shutting down Gitmo a “national imperative” and remains committed to the cause despite being thwarted by Congress. The remaining inmates after Obama’s transfer of many in recent years, the administration maintained, were all there legally.

The U.S. human rights review was part of the “Universal Periodic Reviews” of U.N. members. The reviews occur every four years. This is the second such review for the U.S, the last occurring in 2010.
