BBC told to review Scottish Independence coverage

Yes campaigners demonstrate outside the BBC building in Glasgow ahead of the Scottish referendum.

Yes campaigners demonstrate outside the BBC building in Glasgow ahead of the Scottish referendum.

I am happy this has been flagged as news but for me the damage has been done and the key players will still get paid. It is fair to say that the BBC were a HUGE part in the over 55’s voting ‘No. Every other age group below 54 years old voted ‘Yes. The BBC had issues all the way through the lead up the the Referendum with Kevin Bridges adding this. ‘Kevin Bridges admits to BBC lies, 100%’ <Click) All Kevin did was say out loud what we all suspected. My hands are in bits and speech recognition can do only so much, so I leave this story here ‘as is’ for now. The BBC seem, allegedly to be the mouth piece for Westminster, that is no Democratic so lets see where this story goes if it goes anywhere!

The BBC should review its approach to the coverage of “controversial political issues” in Scotland in the wake of last year’s referendum, according to an audience panel. In the corporation’s annual review, the Audience Council Scotland said some network programmes had appeared to adopt what was described as an “Anglified perspective” during the independence debate and focused too much on the official campaigns “at the expense of the wider civic and community engagement”.

The council, which advises the BBC Trust, said BBC Scotland should be given greater authority and resources to commission programmes for Scottish audiences and review its approach to the coverage of controversial political issues “to ensure that perceptions of impartiality remain strong across all audiences”.

Analysis from audience councils and focus groups found 48% of people in Scotland think the BBC is good at representing their life in news and current affairs content, compared with 61% in England, 61% in Northern Ireland and 55% in Wales.

The BBC annual review read: “The BBC has a key role to play in ensuring it represents the nations in news, drama and entertainment, and our research shows that over half feel that the BBC represents their nation or region in its content, and supports minority languages. “Nonetheless there is still some way to go, particularly in Scotland. People are accessing content using a variety of platforms where only around 50% of the audience feel that their nation is effectively represented.”

The Audience Council Scotland praised a series of documentaries on the referendum and the online resources available, but added: “Members questioned whether, overall, the coverage had captured the popular nature of the campaign and the increased role of social media.

“The council also felt that BBC network programmes, overall, did not engage with the issues until too late a stage, and that some had been less well informed, and that this diluted the value of the coverage at both Scottish and UK levels. “There was some audience perception that network correspondents were increasingly used in place of BBC Scotland correspondents in the final weeks of the campaign. “Some council members believed BBC coverage had focused too much on the official campaigns, at the expense of the wider civic and community engagement; and that certain network programmes had appeared to adopt what was described as an ‘Anglified’ perspective.”

The annual review also shows that the referendum and the Commonwealth Games helped the BBC reach record audiences in Scotland last year. The live debate between the SNP’s Alex Salmond and Better Together’s Alistair Darling in Glasgow was watched by 860,000 viewers in Scotland, a third of the TV audience in the country and the highest ever for a political debate in Scotland. Coverage of Glasgow 2014 reached 3.6 million people – 78% of the audience in Scotland – with the opening ceremony alone attracting a peak of 1.8 million Scottish viewers and 9.3 million across the UK.

Audiences for the opening and closing ceremonies of the Commonwealth Games were the third and fourth highest in Scotland since 2002, beaten only by the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympics. Around 4.7 million people used the BBC Scotland News website last year, with a record number of unique users – 13.2 million – visiting the site in the week of the referendum vote. BBC trustee for Scotland Bill Matthews said: “Last year the BBC had its busiest year in Scotland with some truly memorable, high quality programmes.

“Events such as the Commonwealth Games and the independence referendum brought viewers from around the globe to Scotland, and the BBC covered these events for UK and international audiences with great professionalism. “Noting that BBC television reached a greater proportion of the audience in Scotland than it did across the UK as a whole, Audience Council Scotland still feels that more should be done in BBC output to reflect the unique cultural and political landscape of Scotland to audiences both in Scotland and across the UK.”

A spokeswoman for the BBC said: “As we have stated previously, we stand by our coverage of the referendum which was fair and impartial. “No complaints about impartiality were upheld by the BBC Trust and there were no complaints of bias from the leaders of the opposing Better Together and Yes campaigns.”

The SNP MP, who is aged just 20, said she came from a “traditional socialist Labour family”. But she insisted: “It was the Labour party that left me, not the other way about.”

“The SNP did not triumph on a wave of nationalism … we triumphed on a wave of hope,” she said.

“Hope that there was something different, something better than the Thatcherite, neo-liberal policies that are produced from this chamber.”

The MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire South said she wanted to “hold a mirror to the face of a party that seems to have forgotten the very people they’re supposed to represent”.

You can watch her speech now here: http://parliamentlive.tv/event/index/aa555458-25d4-4125-96ca-c4c9f834cd4c On the right there is a timeline, go to time 15:06, Mhairi Black MP (Paisley and Renfrewshire South, Scottish National Party) and be amazed!

SNP threatens to call another independence referendum – Do we have over 50%

28A0867B00000578-0-image-m-12_14315913634452899BD1A00000578-0-image-a-11_1431591357440

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is days, maybe a week old but a few alternative news agencies and others are sharing this today. My only hope here is we have over 50% Last time I checked we didn’t. I want free, you want free, you may want to stay in the Union. All aside these are the facts here > Scotland do have enough votes to be free? We need more than 50% <Click) Should we have #IndyRef2 and lose we lose for several Generation, if we wait till 2020, my vision is still focused, we can do it. That gives us math here to play with. The over 65’s at 70% lost us the vote for freedom, I can’t and won’t hate nor be angered at Scotland’s people, a Political lie and willing Whitehall serving Media played tricks on us, THANKFULLY Scottish people have brains and we painted the town yellow! If we allow 2014 to pass and wait toll 2020, logic alone will say 20% at least of over 65’s have sadly passed by 2020 and around 15% new voters come into play, our new youth who can vote. So does this = #IndyRef2 or do we have 50%? On May we may have wiped the floor yellow but facts are facts, sadly, I presented them in the article above, it was 50% SNP in may in HUGE Swings, so is this a hint it can be the 75% we all seen on the lead up to #IndyRef1 that the Main Stream Media would not share? All polls did by others, 10’s of thousands all showed 75% #Aye, so this is what surprised us, then this image told a truth or a lie. It matters not now, we must look forward and make sure now.

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon is expected to confront Prime Minister in face-to-face talks and will argue that he has ‘no mandate’ in Scotland.

~~~Story Via: http://scottishindependence.com/2015/06/snp-threatens-to-call-another-independence-referendum/ ~~~

The Scottish National party has threatened to call for another vote to break up the UK unless the government agrees to devolve more powers to Edinburgh, adding to concerns in Westminster over the prospect of a second independence referendum within a few years.

Stewart Hosie, the SNP’s Treasury spokesman in Westminster, warned in an interview with the Financial Times that if the British government failed to go further than the devolution package of measures already on the table, it could trigger another ballot.

MPs will debate those measures in the Commons on Monday, with SNP MPs pushing for amendments to allow Holyrood to claim new powers rather than having them devolved from Westminster.

Nicola Sturgeon, the first minister in Scotland, has said the SNP would only include plans for another referendum in an election manifesto if there was a “material change in [Scotland’s] circumstances”. She cited as an example the possibility that Scotland voted to remain in the EU in a referendum that saw the UK as a whole choose to leave — something that current polls suggest is unlikely.

ARE WE REACHING?

ARE WE REACHING?

DON’T KILL ME ON THE BLOGS TITLE, DEBATE IT’S CONTENT PLEASE, WITH LOVE AND RESPECT, PLEASE!! > To define a free Scotland in an oppressed World we must understand our History Scotland, World History. We must gather examples of our struggle for freedom from other people; ‘A People. From South Africa/Africa to Ferguson to Syria and Palestine and all over the World people are awakening but are still oppressed in a bad way or a deathly way and Scotland are at the front of the awakened queue. Yeah Brothers and Sisters, Scotland is leading a feeling and motion and a god given right (God in the right context, below you will understand) to speak, be heard, feed each other, dress the poor, home the homeless and also cry and share #Solidarity that exists from a very good man in Tommy Sheridan and his party to Nelson Mandela. WHY? Because Tommy and Nelson are one in the same. The SNP need to change a few very small in detail laws to try and appease everyone, it is possible, why do I know and say this? Look back in History, turn around Scotland and use the wisdom of our World elders and the power and energy of our World’s youth who want to speak, eat, feel, live. Scotland we may not be Palestine but ‘Same tree, different branch’ analogy here ok. We are not being killed and starved to death and flooded and having our Electricity cut.. BUT HOLD ON. Is this correct???? Are all Scot’s EATING? Do all Scot’s have a HOME? Are our rivers and oils OURS? Think about our struggle to free ourselves from an evil union that exists should you see it and accept it. Do not throw anger at it, smile back at it knowing WE WILL ONE DAY, FOR THE RIGHT REASONS, OUR GOD GIVEN RIGHTS REASONS…FREE OURSELVES, IT IS A MATTER OF TIME AND TIMING. We must connect to the GLOBAL FREEDOM MOVEMENT to understand why we want to be free and how we become free and then we figure out how we co-exist in a World when we are ONLY Scotland and NOT Northern Britain. Now I want to share a song, I BEG YOU WATCH. UB40 – Sing our own song. Now if you are thinking “Shaun give it a rest” then please close the page, if I have however captured your attention I PLEAD WITH YOU FOR MY KIDS FUTURES AND YOURS to listen to this quick song of #Solidarity with expressions of freedom and how we go about it… Here is the song… Then I will quickly point out the lyrics, this is the song and lyrics, they are VERY POWERFUL AND PEACEFUL! Enjoy my  Scottish brothers and sisters….REMEMBER NOW! No hate at this dining table, we fight with love.

 UB40 – Sing Our Own Song (with Lyrics)
VIDEO UltimateTobi THANKS TO On You Tube

Way back in South African culture we MUST know and recognize as their struggle to understand and fix our own World, Scotland’s World, you and I for our kids, disabled, poor, hungry, homeless OR WE HAVE WASTED THE LAST FEW YEARS ON ARGUING AND NOT ACTING. I had an epiphany whilst coming off my medication to get new medication for my newly and amazing M.E I have (No disrespect, I have it, it’s my journey, I respect the illness and you who has it or worse) The medication I was on was Heroin x 1,000 via my lovely Dr’s. Speak to a Dr always please, I forget, and forget my reason for my epiphany, the same one a young Alex Salmond dared to dream many years ago! ‘Same tree, different branch, he seen it years, decades before us, one day a statue will be cared for all our Kin to see of this man, he is our Dr King, our Mandela. Make no mistake, something starts somewhere. Nothing is perfect, South Africa is not perfect, BUT IT’S BETTER.

The lyrics below offend me but lift me all the same. The line “We will no longer hear your command – We will sieze the control from your hand – We will fan the flame – Of our anger and pain – And you’ll feel the shame – For what you do in gods name” are maybe the most powerful words a person like you and I sat and wrote then performed for the very same reasons Scotland wants free. A Free thinker writes music, makes moves, paints, writes, blogs, shares, loves and cares.

Scotland, I know many of us have our own boards, pages, blogs, Facebook groups and all that Social Media, sadly and I do see this and it is sad many who want a free Scotland tell other Scottish people who want to be free to #SHUT #UP How dare they?! If we want to be a FREE SCOTLAND WE MUST….Be free thinkers…allow freedom of expression…allow ourselves to understand hate and not throw hate back at hate. If we can’t do this Scotland we may as well all close our Social Media #FreeScotland boxes and go and be slaves to an #ALLEGED Evil London, Royal Establishment.

We must come together or we won’t be be free EVER. We can’t be a laughing stock, we are not that but we must be careful we don’t become. We must WAIT. As I have said before ONLY 50% Today voted SNP in Scotland. As Scotland is Yellow it is illusion for now, in this moment. Scotland do have enough votes to be free? We need more than 50% <Click) So, decide what free Scotland we want and allow freedom of information to flow and connect. OR WE WILL FALL….

I pray for a day we are free. Amandla Awethu mentioned in the song above and the lyrics below. Feel that power and don’t tell me it doesn’t feel the same..

Love, Light, Hope over Fear, Respect, Solidarity and all that we THINK OR KNOW we want. 

More love, less hate. 

Respect.. Shauny. x

The great flood of tears that we’ve cried
For our brothers and sisters who’ve died
Over four hundred years
Has washed away our fears
And strengthened our pride
Now we turn back the tide

We will no longer hear your command
We will sieze the control from your hand
We will fan the flame
Of our anger and pain
And you’ll feel the shame
For what you do in gods name

We will fight for the right to be free
We will build our own society
And we will sing, we will sing
We will sing our own song

When the ancient drum rhythms ring
The voice of our forefathers sings
Forward Africa run
Our day of freedom has come
For me and for you
Amandla Awethu

We will fight for the right to be free
We will build our own society
And we will sing, we will sing
We will sing our own song

TV historian David Starkey has sparked outrage after comparing the Scottish National Party to the Nazis. In comments made during an interview with The Sunday Times(£), the 70-year-old claimed the Saltire was like the swastika, and likened the SNP’s view of the English to Adolf Hitler’s hatred of Jewish people. He said that those who sympathise with the SNP, especially in England, were “incapable of recognising that this is national socialism”, and also noted that Scots who “bare their knees” in kilts recalled the traditional dress of Germany.

SNP MP Kirsten Oswald said David Starkey’s comments were “irresponsible” and “deeply offensive to the Jewish community, the half of the Scottish electorate who voted SNP last month and 60 per cent who currently intend to vote SNP next year”. “He has become little more than a serial utterer of bile and bilge,” she added.

SNP John Nicholson said David Starkey's comments on his party were offensive to 'Jews, to Christians, and obviously to Scots'

SNP John Nicholson said David Starkey’s comments on his party were offensive to ‘Jews, to Christians, and obviously to Scots’

SNP MP John Nicholson asked: “Does he just say the silliest thing that comes into his mind on any given day?” Speaking on the Andrew Marr show on BBC One, he added: “He says the St Andrews Flag, the saltire flag, looks like a swastika. “He seems not quite to understand the origins of he calls it the ‘twisted cross’ rather than the cross that St Andrew was crucified on out of respect for the original cross” “It’s offensive to Christians, to Jews and obviously Scots,” he said.

Starkey, who was born in Cumbria, found himself mired in controversy in January this year after calling Al Jazeera presenter Mehdi Hasan “Ahmed” during a debate on BBC Question Time. The historian was branded a “bigot” and a “xenophobe” on social media after the embarrassing name mix-up as he spoke about the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attacks in Paris. Last month he accused Amal Clooney, one of the most successful barristers in international law, of promoting human rights “beyond the purpose proposed by Winston Churchill after the Second World War”.

A former Radio 1 DJ who worked alongside Jimmy Savile sobbed today as he admitted hoarding ­sickening child porn.

Michael Willis, 69, shot to fame on pirate station Radio Caroline and worked at the BBC under the name of Stevie Merike in the 1970s – when disgraced Savile was also a presenter. He later presented BBC Radio 1’s ‘Pop Workshop’ and deputised for Tony Blackburn on the Breakfast Show.

Willis also hosted the 1975 TV show Pop Quest and interviewed stars including T-Rex’s Marc Bolan. He stood as a Lib Dem parliamentary candidate for Loughborough in the 2010 General Election but failed to win the seat, despite securing almost 10,000 votes.

Leicester Crown Court was told he also lectured at Nottingham Trent University and was a governor at a number of schools. A raid on his home in Loughborough, Leics, turned up 500 indecent photos of children and 306 horrific films.

The pervert told police he had been researching the material after being intrigued by the Savile affair. Michael Collis, defending, blamed his offending on “what had gone on in his early years”. He also said the breakdown of Willis’ second marriage in 2007 was a “catalyst” for him downloading the images.

Recorder Simon Ward told him at Leicester crown court: “When you look at images of children being raped, you are witnessing very serious sexual crimes.” Willis was given a nine-month suspended prison sentence. was also banned from using any internet device where its web history is not retained. If he is found to have deleted his history, he could be jailed for five years.

WE FEEL THIS SMILE RIGHT?

As London and the USA talk about trading Oil in Euro and not the PetroDollar, meaning the USA Dollar keeps crumbling, Nicola Sturgeon who lives and loves in us all went over the USA and came back a loved Woman who made friends in high places in with our American friends. Scotland is being called almost “Nazi” by the London paid media, here is an example right here ‘UN Human Rights Chief’ Compares UK Media to Nazi Propaganda <Click) The facts are we are a peaceful people, her ways are our ways. She and the SNP played a blinder going to the USA! Check this if you have not already! Nicola Sturgeon Loved up on USA Daily Show appearance (Full Video) <Click) Let us NOT, Scotland fill our hearts and minds with hate as we walk slowly over the hill to a Brave new World, because we are, they can’t stop a power this strong, led by Nicola, energized by our Scottish youth and led by the Educated elders in our Kinship. Scotland know we are special but don’t say it always. We are a special people, Nicola is a special lady, I am proud to call her “MY FIRST MINISTER” Nicola honey, if you do read this, you are 1st an AMAZING Political leader, 2nd you entered our Hearts and we your’s. I know this Nicola. Together we will cast the shackles of oppressive media and old political men who want a last pay day. Together WE WILL walk away from War, Poverty and inhuman people, WITH NO HATE! Just love. Our vote represents what Scotland? For me it’s Scotland, and our love of our land, people and who we CAN become. Don’t stop Scotland, lets line up behind the SNP, Tommy Sheridan, The SNP and the the Socialist party and allow these people to represent us and free our bank accounts, our pain, our suffering for all of time and never rejoin a Union so cruel and uncaring for it’s people. I speak to the people in England too, they don’t want it either, this is why many wanted to Vote SNP. Solidarity is just that. Together we march forward to a brilliant new ending. I hope that makes sense Scotland. Herald Scotland, keep reporting, keep informing and we will help you too… Scotland, we are Scottish, we don’t hate!! 

THIS ISN'T ANGER, IT'S SCOTTISH DETERMINATION

THIS ISN’T ANGER, IT’S SCOTTISH DETERMINATION

~~~Via: http://www.heraldscotland.com/comment/columnists/like-project-fear-fiscal-autonomy-scare-stories-demean-scotland-and-harm-the-unio.128852896 ~~~

NICOLA Sturgeon flew to the USA; she walked back.

So goes the joke about how “Saint Nicola” as Labour’s Lord Foulkes calls the First Minister, went down so well stateside she now walks on water.

There she was swapping jokes with Jon Stewart on the Daily Show, holding artsy receptions at the Lincoln Plaza in New York, lecturing officials the White House, meeting the IMF’s Christine Lagarde, but not President Obama. “Well, we didn’t ask” said the Scottish Government, somewhat disingenuously.

All this adoration of Ms Sturgeon seems unfair. Few political leaders get such star treatment, not even Alex Salmond in his hey day. (What was all that about him being the back-seat driver?) She has managed to combine being an elected leader with being a celebrity. Well, she should enjoy it while it lasts, say Labour.

Back home the press was full of new “blows” to Sturgeon over the falling price of oil. “Nicola Sturgeon’s dream of full fiscal autonomy in tatters” cried the Daily Record. The referendum was supposed to have resolved the constitutional issue, but clearly the campaign is still running, only now over FFA.

Press commentary had been dominated by a claim that the SNP was “running scared” of calling for all tax powers to be devolved to Holyrood. Sturgeon had, the headlines claimed, “shelved” plans to table such an amendment to the Scotland Bill.

“The SNP promised in their manifesto to deliver FFA”, said Labour’s Shadow Scottish Secretary, Ian Murray, last weekend, “but they have barely settled into their Westminster offices before abandoning it.”

However, when the SNP did then put down an amendment to this effect four days later, the critics did a handbrake turn. “The SNP’s economic credibility is in tatters,” said Ian Murray, even though they were doing what he had been urging them to do.

The odd thing about this whole FFA debate is that everyone knows it’s not going to happen. Labour and the Tories were never going to hand over full tax-raising powers to Holyrood. Yet if you read the Scottish press you’d have thought Scotland was on the brink of actually getting devolution max.

It’s like that early referendum which people said Nicola Sturgeon was going to call when she clearly wasn’t. David Cameron has always opposed fiscal autonomy on the grounds that if you give full economic powers to Scotland it might as well be independent. And he has a point. Full fiscal autonomy is a policy that no-one really wants, even though everyone seems to want to talk about it.

The SNP talk about fiscal autonomy because they see it as a step to full independence. Their amendment is intended to call the bluff of Conservative MPs who have been saying that it is about time the Scots were jolly well told to manage their own affairs and stop robbing English taxpayers.

Labour and the press want to talk about fiscal autonomy because falling the oil price makes independence look like a bad deal. They assume – wrongly – that fiscal autonomy is essentially the same as independence, and so they can use the same arguments.

But the lesson of the referendum, and even more so the General Election, is that FFA actually made relatively little impact in the end. The relentless warnings in the press about “deficits” and “black holes” didn’t stop the SNP winning the biggest landslide in election history. And the focus on FFA since the election is doing little to help Labour recover its lost ground in Scotland.

Last week’s Herald/TNS poll on Holyrood voting intentions was devastating. It suggested that 60% of Scots now intend to vote SNP in the Scottish Parliamentary elections next year, leaving Labour with precisely zero constituency seats in Holyrood. Worse, it indicated that 80% of voters under 35 are now supporters of the SNP against only 6% for Labour.

The Labour Party is dying out in Scotland, yet it continues to bang away relentlessly on the same message without asking why it isn’t working. Are the voters just stupid? Why can’t Scots get the message that they can’t go it alone without economic hardship?

In fact there’s reason to believe that the FFA scare, like its parent Project Fear, has actually damaged the Union rather than strengthened it. The rhetoric is entirely negative and to many Scots, demeaning. It is effectively saying that, unlike any other small country in Europe, Scotland is uniquely incapable of running its own affairs and managing its own economy.

Unionists insist they are not saying Scots are “too wee too poor too stupid” but that’s how it sounds to many voters. That is why so many Scots get angry about the press reports on Scotland’s alleged inability to finance independence; they think it’s just running their country down and they don’t like it.

Actually it’s worse – it looks like a case of: “The UK got the oil, now it’s running out, you’re on your own. Hahaha.” Scotland remains the only nation, state or region to have oil discovered in its waters and receive no direct benefit.

Nicola Sturgeon understands this, which is why she hardly bothers rebutting the IFS numbers. She isn’t like Alex Salmond, who used to get riled and would argue the toss endlessly about the economic numbers. What she has been doing, with considerable success, is acting as if Scotland already was an independent country.

Critics say she is running away from the reality – but what actually is the reality here? If there were fiscal autonomy, the calculations based on the General Expenditure and Revenue Statistics would no longer apply. Scotland would be raising all tax locally and sending a subvention south for common services like defence and foreign affairs. That would have to be negotiated as would Scotland’s burden of debt and repayments.

There would also be the tricky question of equalisation payments between Scotland and the UK. This is not independence, but a form of federalism, so even with fiscal autonomy there would be transfer payments to be negotiated as there are in all federal systems.

This may sound like the Scots getting their cake and eating it, but the point is that FFA, unlike independence, does not mean fiscal separation. All financial relationships would be subject to continual negotiation like everything else in a federal system.

There is little point in speculating about the precise nature of these negotiations because FFA is not going to happen. What is going to happen is much worse than FFA. Next year Scotland gets to set a Scottish rate of income tax – but no powers over the other taxes – and an invitation to use it to reverse Westminster-imposed benefit cuts.

This is a transparent fiscal trap. The Unionist parties hope the Scottish Government will repeat the “penny for Scotland” campaign of 1999 and lose votes in the election. They assume Scottish voters will never vote for increased taxes.

But it sounds as if John Swinney is minded to call their bluff and offer precisely that at the next election. And if he makes a sound moral case, he may well get away with it. The politics of tax are different in Scotland as the Tories found in the 1990s. And the more Labour appears to be using the same language as the Tories on taxation, fiscal autonomy and the Scottish “deficit”, the more it is alienating its own core voters. Those voters would much rather take selfies with the woman who has become the living embodiment of the values of the new Scotland.

America can be a beacon for love , America is changing, This proves it. KEEP GOING USA!!

Independence-Day-united-states-of-america-23406746-1920-1200

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.

American made

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………………..

Nicola Sturgeon Loved up on USA Daily Show appearance (Full Video)

Nicola Sturgeon Gets Laughs On Daily Show
Via: FeradMonday On You Tube

~~~Via: http://www.thenational.scot/politics/nicola-sturgeon-lives-up-to-her-accidental-billing-in-confident-daily-show-appearance.3893 ~~~

Despite fears that she wouldn’t live up to her accidental billing as a comedian, Nicola sturgeon raised more than few laughs in her appearance on US comedy news programme the Daily Show.

Sitting down across from host Jon Stewart, the most senior UK politician to have done so, the First Minister said she found the experience, “exciting, if a little scary”.

“You billed on me your website as a comedian,” she told Stewart. “You raised all these expectations that I’m going to be funny. I’m a politician. As you know politicians aren’t funny”.

“You don’t have to worry,” said Stewart. “They thought for the last 17 years that I was going to be funny”.

The genial chat between the two saw Stewart, who leaves the show in Autumn, tease the First Minister for expressing disappointment at not winning all the seats in Scotland at the general election.

“What you think you’re Saddam Hussein?” he said, “You want 99%? 56 out of 59 is pretty good.”

“Well I think you should always aim for more,” replied the First Minister.

The interview gave the SNP leader ample opportunity to promote Scotland to an audience of millions.

Stewart asked her: “You have pledged for Scotland greater self determination, more financial independence but now after the election that has crashed head on with the reality that Westminster still controls the purse strings; still believes in austerity as receipts can dwindle for the GDP of Scotland… my question to you is this, First Minister… what is haggis”?

“Haggis is delicious,” said Sturgeon, “Have you tasted haggis?”

As well as haggis, the First Minister said, Scotland is a place of great Scotch whisky and great cities and great scenery. Scotland invented the modern world Sturgeon said.

Stewart gave the SNP a little bit of advice for any future attempts at independence: “Do you know what they hate?” he asked “When you throw their stuff in their water.”

The First Minister got her biggest laugh when a question about the Scottish economy turned to oil.

“You have oil?” Stewart said, “May we invade you?”

“This is progress!” said Sturgeon. “We just heard Jon there, presumably on behalf of the US, asking for permission to invade an oil producing country, it doesn’t normally work that way…”
