Wayne Strickland died in the M8 collision between two cars, a lorry and van.

This is so very sad. Yesterday I wrote ‘1 dead, cars on fire – M8 Edinburgh – I was there’ <Click) There are a few images and videos in there. I got a hard time from a few people but once we spoke they understood that blog. I was there in terms of, a mile away and stuck in traffic for 5 hours in pain. BUT!! All the time I waited my mind was thinking “Who died” 😦 Because that is pretty much all any of us knew, the traffic was so slow drivers were out cars speaking to each other, and all we knew when I did the video was ‘A person had passed. This swept from car to car as I seen people’s heads drop and some cry. It was that real, and so sad. My heart and soul go out to Wayne’s family. I can only offer words of comfort and I will. Below is from a decent media outlet STV (Scottish Television) for people reading this from foreign shores.

A man who died after his car burst into flames in a crash with another car, lorry and van on the M8 has been named.

The 49-year-old man, named by police as Wayne Strickland, from Fife, died in the four-vehicle crash on Monday between Bathgate and Livingston. The incident happened around 8.45am which left the cars and HGV destroyed by the blaze. Firefighters extinguished it shortly before 10.30am.

A Peugeot 206, which Mr Strickland was driving, a Kia Rio, Mercedes van and an articulated HGV were all involved in the collision.

Mr Strickland’s family released a statement through Police Scotland paying tribute to “one of life’s true gentlemen.”

It said: “Wayne was a much loved and respected father, husband, son and brother. “A business advisor with West Lothian Council, he was on his way to work from his home in Inverkeithing when the accident happened. “Wayne was a devoted husband to Bernadette and much adored father. He was one of life’s true gentlemen and he will be sadly missed.”

The motorway was closed for most of the day while emergency services tended to the injured and cleared the scene. Two people were taken to hospital while a number of “walking wounded” were treated by paramedics by the roadside.

A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Police Scotland responded to a four-vehicle collision on the westbound carriageway of the M8, Junction 3 at around 8.50am on Monday July 20. “Two cars, a van and an articulated lorry were all involved in the incident, which resulted in three vehicles catching fire. “We can confirm that one male has died as a result of this collision and inquiries are ongoing.”

A spokesman for West Lothian Council said: “Wayne was a very popular and respected colleague and those that worked with him have been left devastated by this tragic news.”Wayne had worked with West Lothian Council for a number of years and those that had the pleasure to work with him feel very fortunate to have known him as a colleague and friend.

“As a business advisor Wayne worked closely with the local community to help people set up their own companies and his loss will be felt by the wider business community in West Lothian. “He will be greatly missed and our thoughts and prayers are with Wayne’s family and friends at this very sad time.”

Twenty members of the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service were in attendance, with six of them wearing breathing apparatus and using high pressure hoses.

A spokeswoman said: “Appliances from Livingston, Sighthill, Bathgate and Linlithgow Fire Stations were mobilised to the scene. “The first appliances arrived within minutes and immediately started tackling a fire involving an articulated lorry, a van and two cars.”

1 dead, cars on fire – M8 Edinburgh – I was there

Entrance to the M8 from Edinburgh to Glasgow

I left Edinburgh at around 11:45am for a 30 minute drive there and back for a spring for the back end of my car. It turned into an almost 5 hour traffic jam. At first news was coming through of a crash, the tailbacks were so bad people were talking to each other in car’s as the traffic jammed. I heard sadly 1 person has died and another 2 are or could be critical. One car came East bound into the West bound carriageway, smashing into oncoming traffic at 9:30am, peak traffic hours where people are doing 70 Miles per hour. Not good for the lad who died. May he rest in peace! Some images below I took as well as this video here. I will link in some Tweets at the bottom also. Horrible day

I took this video myself after waiting for 40 minutes 5 minutes from my house

A man has died after a van caught fire in a crash with two cars and an articulated lorry on Scotland’s busiest motorway. The incident happened around 8.45am on Monday between M8 junction 3a (Bathgate) and junction 3 (Livingston) eastbound. Both cars and the HGV had been destroyed by the blaze which was extinguished shortly before 10.30am.

STV News understands the victim is a 49-year-old male from Fife. A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Police Scotland responded to a four-vehicle collision on the westbound carriageway of the M8, Junction 3 at around 8.50am on Monday July 20. “Two cars, a van and an articulated lorry were all involved in the incident, which resulted in three vehicles catching fire. “The M8 is currently closed in both directions while emergency services are in attendance at the scene and it is due to remain closed for several hours. “Full diversions are in place and congestion on the M8 is now starting to ease. “We can confirm that one male has died as a result of this collision and inquiries are ongoing.”

12 Palestinian artists to come to Edinburgh Fringe Festival

David Greig

David Greig

Scotland has flexed it’s muscled here big time, through London stopping this through Israeli means, before a newer devolved Scotland now has the power to allow Palestine act’s into our amazing Fringe Festival <Click) The power the 80% of Countries who want to recognise Palestine now is huge, Palestine is bring stopped from being recognised in order for her to be her own Country by Israel, USA and England in the main.

Well I am just happy to live in a Country that can now stand in solidarity with the stood upon! Why, because right now, as I type, London is TRYING to oppress Scotland. They will fail and by 2020 Scotland WILL 100% be a free Country, BUT! Palestine will be free 1st, now who on Earth wants to stop this progress? Well these ones! How dare you! 80% of Humanity just want to recognise Palestine! 1 Book stops them. How dare you!

It was one of the biggest controversies of last year’s Fringe festival. When it emerged an Israeli theatre company had received funding from its government to stage its show in Scotland there was outcry from those opposed to the country’s policies in the Middle-East.

Now a fund-raising campaign founded by the playwright David Greig that arose out of the storm of protest has unveiled a line up of Palestinian artists paid for by £10,000 in public donations.

Greig set up the crowd funding campaign to provide financial aid for shows and artists, notably from Palestine, who otherwise find it hard to come to the Edinburgh festivals. The initiative, called Welcome to the Fringe, has now unveiled a list of 12 artists supported by the campaign and events at two venues during this year’s festival.

Greig was instrumental in setting up the initiative following the controversy that in 2014 engulfed a show called The City by Incubator Theatre. The company was partially funded by Israel’s Ministry of Culture and a series of cultural figures signed a letter urging the Underbelly venue to reconsider staging the show.

Following a furore and an inability to find a new venue, eventually the show was cancelled.

In the aftermath Greig established the funding initiative “to do something positive” and to aid Palestinian – and other – artists.

The project has been developed through a collaboration between Forest Fringe, London’s Gate Theatre and the Greig, with support from the AM Qattan Foundation and the British Council.

The show resulting from this campaign is Welcome To The Fringe: Palestine, an all-day program of performance at the Forest Fringe on August 23. The playwright said he and the venues involved would now like to make the Welcome to the Fringe Fund a permanent fixture for the festival.

Greig said: “Forest Fringe, Northern Stage, The Gate and I all feel that the Welcome to the Fringe model could work for artists from other countries and groups who can’t share so easily in the Fringe’s open access – Syria? Uganda? Ukraine? “And so we would like to build on the funding success last year by developing a permanent Welcome To The Fringe Fund.”

The artists coming to the Fringe include storyteller, Fidaa Ataa; poet Alice Youssef; stand up comedian Ayman Nahas, two performance artists Farah Saleh and Yazan Eweidat, The Al Shaghaf music group and The Al Harah Theatre company. The centrepiece of the days events will be a performance of a newly devised play called Shakespeare’s Sisters by Al Harah. The performers will be in Edinburgh for a week and will be “buddied” with local fringe performers and on Sunday 23rd they will all perform at Forest Fringe.

Welcome to the Fringe will also show short films, an exhibition of photography from Palestine, and panel discussions. Some of the artists will perform at Doune The Rabbit Hole Festival in Doune. The other event is an evening cabaret show: Here Is The New From Over There by Northern Stage at Summerhall.

In this show Lorne Campbell and Northern Stage will be working with a mixed company of Arab and UK musician actors to make a show based on 25 specially commissioned Twitter feeds from 25 writers from Turkey, Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, and Israel. These twitter scripts will be merged with music, video and Traditional Arab storytelling techniques and Facebook feeds from the region to make an “alternative news tapestry, a nightly news show with a difference.”

Last year Greig explained some of his thinking behind the funding campaign.

He said: “It dispirits me knowing that my Palestinian theatre making friends are unable to come here and, it dispirits me to think that Israeli theatre makers who are brave enough to reject their government’s sponsorship, might be unable to come here as well. “In the light of all this, I felt the need to do something positive.”

Greig added: “Palestinian voices must be heard on their own terms. Palestinian theatre makers are massively disadvantaged. “It’s important that, in establishing this fund, we are careful to make sure its disbursement recognises this.”

SNP forces Palace to back down in cash row – AS I PREDICTED!

63b3808e799bbaaed64abb7187de3857

Now please cast your mind back to December 8th 2014 and you will see I wrote this article here ‘Nicola Sturgeon refuses to pay the Queen! Go on Nicola! <Click) An article many scoffed at and ridiculed the mere mention of Scotland stopping paying for the Royal Families upkeep. Where did I get the story in the first place? Well I research hard, I do say this often 😀  As Nicola and the SNP made a decision that will humiliate Buckingham Palace and Westminster, basically Whitehall 😀 This leaves the question of “What will the Unionist’s do” Now what I do mean is the people who won the ‘September 14th 2014 Referendum’ on Scotland voting herself free away from the British Union. Remember the winners? The 55% were the winners and a small percentage of the ‘No Movement are behind the Queen and all she stands for! Are kinda Protestant as they kinda sing to us ish, yet they never go to church, so this small percentage don’t seem the brightest right <Click) I say a small percentage because I hope so. These are Scottish born people singing ‘God Save The Queen’ so lets get one thing clear, I have no problem with someone born in the UK, I am British through birth just now myself, singing this song, in-fact I encourage being a Nationalist or to be proud of where you come from, there is nothing wrong with that. I said before in another blog, I can’t remember when I pointed out ‘It’s not about our flying the flag, it’s why we fly the flag’? Is it hatred? is it national pride? the reason we wave flags? You have your own answer I hope. Because these are the reasons we need to know Scotland. With no hate we try and co-exist and do what’s right for our kids future yet these people, BACKED BY THE MEDIA!!! Almost control. Every day call for the Scottish Unilateral Declaration of Independence things due to where they lean. Make sense? Please say yes!

I just happen to want a free Scotland away from an uneven Union, with knowledge of WHY

I just happen to want a free Scotland away from an uneven Union, with knowledge of WHY

Should we put up with this? If we vote yes next time or the SNP just  do they all come out the woodwork? It’s the anger, and it’s same anger we see in London Politicians faces when the rob a person already poor. I think the video above and below will match this image perfectly, both love England here ok. The images below are awful, but they are the same looks you get from a small percentage of no voters or Loyalists as the Media call them. Many Yes voters now talk about Unilateral Declaration of Independence (UDI<Click) So there are people on both sides looking for the end result today, sadly we must wait, we who want a free Scotland, I won’t brand us any more, we get that already by the uneducated, thankfully a small %

Because he won a vote condemning poor, poorer all over Britain

Because he won a vote condemning poor, poorer all over Britain

He did it the year before, this guy is evil for money

They got NOTHING. Yes voters are fighting for a lie they fell for!

So Scotland do we want to pay for all this, or do we want to have less Foodbanks? An already brilliant Education System made better? A better National Health Service although it’s all £Free up here, less bombs and more done for the bairns, disabled old and people life just beat up?? Where do you want your Tax money go? You be sitting thinking “I don’t work, what do I care” But you know you pay Tax buying any item on Earth right? Just saying! I know this blog might bring the usual hard men and comments I yawn at and all the hate you can imagine, but really I am ok with it all, people who want to harm you don’t give you a weeks notice in email 😀 In peace and solidarity with anyone in the World who is been stood on by the ignorance of the rest, we stand in Solidarity. Know 1 think my Loyalist in Scotland! Very soon you become a minority in Scotland the same as the Tory and Red Tory alike!

The Queen is set to no longer receive funding via Scotland’s crown estate, a decision that means that the income of the monarch and the rest of the royal family could reduce by more than £2m a year.

It is understood that the Scottish parliament intends to retain the profits from the crown estate in Scotland for use in Scotland, which could have the consequence of reducing the sovereign grant, which funds the monarchy. Buckingham Palace intends to raise the consequences for the Queen with David Cameron and George Osborne.

It had been understood that Scotland would still agree to contribute to the Queen’s costs after taking over management of the crown estate assets north of the border, worth £26m, but it appears that under Nicola Sturgeon this will not occur. “Originally, Alex Salmond did imply that might happen. But the new leadership said no,” one senior aide said.

The sovereign grant – which this year was £39.9m – funds the royal household. It is calculated on a formula that sees the Queen handed 15% of the annual surplus of the crown estate, one of the largest property owners in the UK. This year, revenue from the crown estate in Scotland stood at £14.5m, which represents a £2.2m contribution to the sovereign grant.

Snp are sending out a huge message here

SNP are sending out a huge message here

Palace officials raised the issue as they presented the Queen’s annual accounts. Sir Alan Reid, keeper of the privy purse, said the Scottish plans created a complication over future funding. “The transfer of the Scottish assets of the crown estate to the Scottish government does confuse the issue of renegotiating the percentage in due course because the total assets under the crown estate management will fall, and therefore 15% will be less than it would be if the transfer of the Scottish assets had taken place,” he said.

Under Alex Salmond, the SNP last year pledged that Scotland would retain the Queen as head of state, if the country had voted for independence from the rest of the UK last September. But the monarch faced criticism in Scotland after she was asked to make a rare public intervention in the final days of the Scottish independence referendum, speaking publicly to a well-wisher outside church near Balmoral saying: “I hope people will think very carefully about the future.”

Buckingham Palace stressed that the funding issue would not affect the royal family’s relationship with Scotland. The Queen will “continue to go to Balmoral, and to Holyrood, and she’ll continue to be Queen of Scotland”, said one source.

There appears to be no other mechanism in place for Scotland to contribute to the monarchy. Scottish ministers are thought to be considering transferring the management of the crown estate assets in Scotland on to the local authorities, with the intention of using the surplus for more social purposes.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said it was wrong to infer that Scotland would no longer contribute to the monarchy based on the change to the operation of the crown estate and its impact on the grant received by the Queen. The spokesman said it was an “entirely hypothetical” situation, and that though the sovereign grant was calculated on a percentage of the crown estate income, “there is a formulaic connection between the two, but there is no financial connection between the two”.

Scots would effectively still contribute to the costs of the monarchy because they pay taxes to the Treasury, which in turn supplies the money for the sovereign grant, he said. A Scottish government spokeswoman added: “Scotland will continue to make the same financial contribution to the monarchy as at present – there will be no reduction in the sovereign grant as a result of devolution of the crown estate.”

The Scottish government said that the level of funding the Queen receives from the Treasury under the sovereign grant is set by reference to 15% of the crown estate’s profits and does not come directly from crown estate profits themselves. With most taxes paid in Scotland continuing to be controlled by the Treasury, Scotland will continue to make the same contribution to the monarchy through general taxation.

The sovereign grant – which apart from security costs represents the main public funding of the monarchy – was introduced in 2011 to replace the annual civil list and property and travel grants. It is based on 15% of crown estate profits from two years previously, but its amount cannot drop below the previous year and the exact percentage is renegotiated every five years. It is due for review from April 2016. The crown estate income was surrendered to the Treasury in return for an annual civil list by George III. The Queen’s accounts show a 6.7% increase in funding last year to £37.9m, of which she spent £35.7m, setting the rest aside in a reserve account.

Defending the increase, at a time of austerity, aides said money had to be found for major repairs on property, including at Buckingham Palace. As part of a 10-year plan, aides have looked at re-servicing Buckingham Palace, with an initial estimate of £150m to bring it up to date. One option would involve the Queen and royal household moving out for the duration of repairs.

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall notched up the largest travel bill – a £446,159 tour of Mexico and Colombia, a £239,710 tour of the United States and Charles’s visit to the Middle East, which cost £262,212 – all of them using charter flights.

Royal travel costs rose to £5.1m, up 21% on 2013-4. The Duke of York spent £62,856 on a charter flight to Kuwait and £43,343 on a charter to Saudi Arabia. Prince Harry’s tour of Brazil and Chile cost £43,872 on scheduled flights and £41,754 on charter flights.

Prince Charles saw his income from the Duchy of Cornwall rise by 1.7% to £19.8m. His tax bill, after the deduction of business expenditure, was £4.5m. Presenting the accounts, which will be laid before parliament, Reid said: “The Queen, the royal family and the household continue to provide excellent value for money: at 56p per person annually.” He added: “Over the coming years, the maintenance of the estate and in particular Buckingham Palace will present a significant financial challenge. We will continue to work closely with the royal trustees to ensure that the funding for the royal household reflects that challenge.”

Now I don’t mean this, it’s just a bit of fun. I was on twitter chatting to @ileenemac and we were just having a bit of fun 😀

From the Movie: 

It’s SHITE being Scottish! We’re the lowest of the low. The scum of the fucking Earth! The most wretched, miserable, servile, pathetic trash that was ever shat into civilization. Some hate the English. I don’t. They’re just wankers. We, on the other hand, are COLONIZED by wankers. Can’t even find a decent culture to be colonized BY. We’re ruled by effete assholes. It’s a SHITE state of affairs to be in, Tommy, and ALL the fresh air in the world won’t make any fucking difference!

U.K.’s youngest MP wows House of Commons in first speech

Mhairi Black has come a long way

Mhairi Black has come a long way

We have all had a day to digest exactly what Mhairi Black, even me spelling her name correctly 😀 She has went GLOBAL, she is being talked about from the west coast of the USA  to the East coast of Australia and all in-between. I watched the video again earlier and the more I watch her the more I can visualize David Cameron saying “Oh nooo, all I need” Because this young girl can put moral’s above many. She stated she is the ONLY 20 year old person in the UK David Cameron is willing to help with Rent Money! She attacked the Tory party with no hate, she was remarkable to say the least. Below is the video again for people who missed it and a LOT of Twitter comments and links also

~~Via: http://nytlive.nytimes.com/ ~~

Mhairi Black grabbed headlines back in May when she became the youngest person since 1667 to be elected to Parliament in the U.K. On Tuesday she made her first speech before the House of Commons as an elected official and her remarks are getting her a whole new round of headlines. Black, from Scotland, won over her audience with a few jokes, but soon the speech took a fiery turn. She lashed out against government policies on welfare and a recent decision to drop housing support for those below the age of 21. “We now have one of the most uncaring, uncompromising and out-of-touch governments the U.K. has seen since [late former Prime Minister Margaret] Thatcher,” Black railed at one point. Several times throughout her speech, her Parliamentary colleagues verbally agreed with Black, yelling out, “Hear, Hear!”

Nadir Ciftci impatient to make Paradise debut

Below is from the official Celtic site. Nadir Ciftci turned down Wigan to play for Celtic, how often do we see the opposite happen when a player is doing well at the club and leaves for fame and fortune, for relegation fights and bigger fortunes. This fact shows Nadir really thinks he can do well at Celtic and knows this stage is the biggest he could make so the lad knows his game. He has played against us many times and I think we can all see how this is going to work. Nadir can score goals, hold up play, bring people into play, header a ball!! And be a total pain in the backside, I hope Ronny can coach the silly out of him but keep in mind, kinda like Brown, take the Animal nature out of Scott and you lose the player and his work ethos. We lack height when counter attacking teams, what we have here is a very committed kid ready to become a Celtic legend, I think that is his goal here. He doesn’t strike me as a stupid lad in terms of ‘Career, but off-field issues that happened on-field will be multiplied about 100 times at Celtic, I am sure Ronny, Collins, Broony, Griffiths, Mulgrew etc have sat him down over the last few days and explained all this to the lad. I am sure he knew already but should he be silly during a game at Celtic he loses his place in the side, I see this as the way Ronny works. What we have in Nadir is something we have missed since Sutton and Hartson maybe even JVH. Will he be as good as any the 3 of them? He is younger than all the other 3 when he joined, good coach to work with and superb players around him. This should be fun. His interview here is refreshing to read from a football player. Maybe Van Dijk should take note that being at a global giant is better than fighting for nothing every season. #JustSaying

Nadir Ciftci is determined to become a hero for the Celtic supporters after clinching his dream move to Paradise from Dundee United.

The striker put pen to paper on a four-year deal with the Scottish champions last Thursday to become Ronny Deila’s fourth signing of the summer.

The new Bhoy could make his competitive bow tonight (Wednesday) as Celtic kick off their Champions League campaign against Icelandic side FC Stjarnan in the second qualifying round.

“I’m very happy to be here and I’m looking forward to playing for this club,” said Ciftci in an exclusive interview in this week’s Celtic View. “I have been able to play against the team for two years and I realise how big a club this is.

“The Champions League is big goal. As a kid, you dream about playing in the Champions League and to play for Celtic in the competition is something to look forward to.”

What excites him most about moving to the club, however,  is the prospect of starring in front of the Hoops faithful on a regular basis.

As an opposition player, he witnessed the difference their inspirational backing made in matches and he believes they can roar him on to greater heights as a player.

“The most exciting thing is the supporters,” he told the View in an exclusive interview. “We all know what kind of fans we have here and I can’t wait to get out there and enjoy their backing, and hopefully I can give a lot back to them as well.

“I know we have superb fans at this club and hopefully I can get the same support from them and give them something big on the park. This is what football is all about. They are the 12th man and they can have a big impact on the football.

“Messi doesn’t come in and say out of nowhere that Celtic Park was the best atmosphere he has played in. Everybody around the world knows this is the case and to be able to play for the supporters and not against them will only be good for me.

“The message to the fans would be is that hopefully I can go out there, entertain them and get their support and have a good bond with them – that’s something I would love to have.”

Ciftci has chosen the iconic No.7 jersey – a number worn by legends like Jimmy Johnstone and Henrik Larsson among others over the years. Stepping into their shoes doesn’t faze him.

“Henrik Larsson was one of the latest players to wear it and of course he’s remembered as a big player here that everyone looks up to,” he said. “But it’s a number I like for myself as well.  It’s special for the club and myself and hopefully I can live up to the number. I just need to do it on the park.”
