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

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!”

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”.

Hunting vote delayed after SNP U-turn

_83238136_003442428-1

My Editor at Ace News Services <Click) picked this up, I had JUST blogged http://shaunynews.com/2015/07/14/fox-hunting-nicola-warns-cameron-to-accept-the-westminster-snp-vote/ <Click) And the Tories have stopped the vote for the day while they TRY and get some deal done with the SNP. I am hoping and probably know the SNP will stick to their guns on this one. Well played Nicola!

~~Via BBC ~~

A vote on relaxing the Hunting Act on Wednesday has been postponed after the SNP said it would oppose the changes.

The party had previously said fox hunting was the kind of issue it was unlikely to vote on.

But its change of heart meant the plans, which apply to England and Wales only, would be unlikely to get through the House of Commons.

Changes restricting Scottish MPs’ voting rights on non-Scottish issues could now be introduced first.

BBC assistant political editor Norman Smith said the change to voting rights could “change everything” and “tip the balance back in favour of David Cameron and changing the rules on fox hunting”.

The government plans to change Commons rules to allow English, or English and Welsh, MPs a “decisive say” on legislation only applying there.

Fox Hunting – Nicola warns Cameron to accept the Westminster SNP vote

A well used image to show the contempt Nicola holds over David

A well used image to show the contempt Nicola holds over David

Touche Nicola Sturgeon here. Where Cameron (Westminster ancient ethos) want to keep votes on English only affairs to English Politicians is being challenged by the SNP, Nicola said yesterday “We will be the ones to stop your Fox hunting law” See this form of voting and scuppering the Tory plans is a sure fire way to get certain laws passed and more via an imbalanced Smith Commission for Holyrood. I said many times now we must allow a process to just happen. Where Austerity hurts us we hurt them back! Tory back bench voters are likely to vote no on this law so it looks like the SNP will for sure make this law fail when the vote happens, WE HAVE THIS POWER NOW! Keep it up SNP in London! We will get our day. This is why we celebrated voting 56 SNP Members to Westminster, we can and will change this game. Watch this space, Nicola ain’t playing!

Nicola Sturgeon has warned David Cameron that he must respect the mandate of Scottish MPs at Westminster as the SNP threatened to scupper Government plans to relax the ban on fox hunting in England and Wales.

The Scottish First Minister confirmed that SNP MPs would break with their normal practice of not voting on England-only matters to oppose the proposed change to the law on hunting in tomorrow’s Commons vote. And she warned that her party would be prepared to vote on other issues where Scotland is not directly affected in the months ahead. Ms Sturgeon directly linked the move to the Government’s plans for “English votes for English laws”, known as Evel, which would give English MPs a veto over England-only legislation at Westminster.

The decision of the SNP to vote against the legal change – which would actually bring the law on hunting in England and Wales into line with the law1436855203-436 Scotland – means it is almost certain to be defeated. With a number of anti-hunting Conservative MPs planning to vote with Labour and the SNP in the Commons free vote, Ms Sturgeon said it was a reminder to Mr Cameron just how slender his Commons majority was. “Since the election David Cameron’s Government has shown very little respect to the mandate Scottish MPs have. On the Scotland Bill reasonable amendments backed by the overwhelming majority of Scottish MPs have been voted down,” she told the BBC Radio 4 Today programme.

“The English votes for English laws proposals brought forward go beyond any reasonable proposition and look to make Scottish MPs effectively second-class citizens in the House of Commons. “So if there is an opportunity, as there appears to be here, and on an issue where David Cameron appears to be out of touch with majority English opinion as well, to actually remind the Government of how slender their majority is, that is an opportunity we will take.”

The SNP decision drew an angry response from Conservative MPs and is likely to lead to demands for ministers to press on with English votes for English laws as more power was devolved to the Scottish Parliament in the wake of last year’s referendum vote.

Senior backbencher Tory Sir Peter Bottomley said: “The Scottish National Party risk making themselves look foolish, unprincipled and unwise by voting against making English law similar to Scottish law. “This action is naive – it makes them look silly and is perhaps the first major mis-step by Nicola Sturgeon.”

THIS ISN'T ANGER, IT'S SCOTTISH DETERMINATION

THIS ISN’T ANGER, IT’S SCOTTISH DETERMINATION

A Conservative source said: “Hunting is a devolved issue. The SNP’s decision to vote on a draft law that does not affect Scotland at all shows exactly why Conservatives committed in our manifesto to ensure laws that only affect England can only be passed with the consent of English MPs.” The bitter political row erupted as animal welfare activists prepared to stage a rally against the proposals to amend the Hunting Act which would bring England and Wales into line with Scotland on using dogs to flush out foxes to be shot.

Traditional fox hunting with dogs is illegal across Britain, but in England and Wales just two dogs can be used to flush out a fox so that a farmer or landowner can shoot it, while in Scotland an unlimited number of dogs can be used. High-profile animal welfare activists including Queen guitarist Brian May will take part in a rally outside Parliament by the “Team Fox” coalition of animal welfare groups, including Animal Defenders International, urging MPs to keep the ban intact.

Celebrities including Ricky Gervais, Morrissey, Sadie Frost and Stella McCartney have joined the campaign against the proposed change, which has prompted accusations that the Government is trying to sneak fox hunting in through the back door, knowing it would not win a free vote to repeal the Hunting Act in Parliament.

Actors Colin Baker and Julia McKenzie, comedian Alexei Sayle, TV presenters Chris Packham and Victoria Stilwell, naturalist Dame Jane Goodall and former Conservative MP Ann Widdecombe are among more than 20 high-profile people who have signed a letter to MPs. The letter warns that the Government is attempting to “weaken the Hunting Act though the back door, knowing full well that a free vote would maintain this effective, compassionate law”. But hunting supporters are backing the move, saying traditional hunting would remain illegal and it would make it easier to manage fox populations.

Tory former defence secretary Liam Fox accused Ms Sturgeon of hypocrisy, saying she had previously made clear that hunting was the sort of devolved issue which SNP MPs should not vote on “What we have seen is really a pretty toxic mixture of opportunism and hypocrisy coming from the SNP,” he told the Today programme. “It is particularly galling because the Government has been very careful and Parliament has been very careful to try and protect the Union by moving slowly and thoughtfully and constructively in terms of English votes on English laws. “It seems while we are trying to be reasonable to the SNP they are sticking two fingers up at us.”

For Labour, shadow Scottish secretary Ian Murray said that Mr Cameron was paying the price for his failure to build a political consensus over his proposed voting reforms at Westminster. “The issue here is with regards to how the Prime Minister has cack-handedly gone around this particular issue and risked the Union. He has put together on the back of a cigarette packet English votes for English laws,” he told the Today programme

Alex Salmond on WMD’s issues – William McNeilly – Scottish UDI – Robin Cook

The Royal Navy’s Trident-class nuclear submarine Vanguard

The Royal Navy’s Trident-class nuclear submarine Vanguard

Allowing British Crown immunity from giving Scotland, the SNP and in this case Alex Salmond and for us who live in Scotland ‘Information on the state of Trident is wrong. In a democracy the safety of these WMD’s on OUR LAND in Scotland are by all means, and through one Whistleblower named ‘Able Seaman William McNeilly’ <Click) tell us Trident is BREAKING DOWN. Should there be an accident in Faslane Naval Base it would be bad, I will leave an image below. Alex is demanding disclosure of ALL issues and repairs needing done to these WMD’s because he knows they are so bad it could cause a bad accident in Scotland. The video below shows us how Westminster and it’s speaker are so blind and uncaring toward Scotland is so unjust. I can understand “Sure fix them” But on the other hand I say as Scotland says as one (Almost) “When fixed go place them on the Themes behind Westminster!” I know, it won’t happen and hope Trident is placed where if there were an accident it would be low is casualties and it’s as safe as can be, there must be land somewhere on the British Isles? surely? Last I heard Wales were seemingly happy to take Trident <Click) and the something like £50M that comes with keeping them as far away from London as possible. There are many debates all in one here, but lets watch the videos and then take it from there should we want to debate this. The speaker at the end says “We here in London are as worried about a Nuclear accident as Scotland are” Well that is easy for the speaker in Westminster to say living in Lower London! Lets slowly allow ‘2020 Vision to be allowed to progress, then free Scotland from all this’ Funny as it is #2020 #Vision I made up is now being used by others, THIS IS OK TO SHARE 😀 So here today 😀 At near 7am I declare on Sunday 28th of June 2015, so when the MSM Steal my saying, WE KNOW I SAID IT FIRST!! 😀 Alex TOLD Westminster under no uncertain terms “We in Scotland will NOT allow Trident in our Land for all of time” Or words to that effect 😉 In laymen’s terms “We will not tolerate Nuclear bombs in Scotland for much longer”

One mistake and this whole area in Green is dead people and dead land for thousands of years.... Get them out!! Get them safely somewhere else!

One mistake and this whole area in Green is dead people and dead land for thousands of years…. Get them out!! Get them safely somewhere else!

So this quickly I will say bring into play the Scottish UDI – Unilateral Declaration of Independence <Click) Unilateral Declaration of Independence (UDI) is a formal process leading to the establishment of a new state by a sub-national entity which declares itself independent and sovereign without a formal agreement with the national state from which it is seceding. The term was first used when Rhodesia declared independence in 1965 from the United Kingdom (UK) without an agreement with the UK.

Alex is as REAL as they come. You wouldn't see London Politicians being THIS REAL. We must understand 'What is Scotland' and 'Who are we' This image helps? yeah?

Story Via: http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2015/may/18/navy-whistleblower-on-run-alleged-trident-safety-failings

A Royal Navy submariner who blew the whistle on a catalogue of alleged security failings around the Trident nuclear programme has said he will hand himself in to police. Analysis Trident whistleblower needs to be listened to, even if he is exaggerating We do not have to believe Able Seaman William McNeilly to be anxious about the picture he paints of the problems with UK fleet of nuclear submarines

Able Seaman William McNeilly, 25, a newly qualified engineer, claimed that Britain’s nuclear deterrent was a “disaster waiting to happen” in a report detailing 30 alleged safety and security breaches, including a collision between HMS Vanguard and a French submarine during which a senior officer thought: “We’re all going to die.”

McNeilly wrote that a chronic shortage of personnel meant that it was “a matter of time before we’re infiltrated by a psychopath or a terrorist; with this amount of people getting pushed through”. The police and the navy launched a hunt for McNeilly after he failed to report back for work last week at the Faslane submarine base on the Clyde. But on Monday morning he said he would hand himself over to the authorities despite facing a possible prosecution under the Official Secrets Act 1989

Speaking to the BBC, McNeilly said: “I’m not hiding from arrest; I will be back in the UK in the next few days and I will hand myself in to the police.  Prison – such a nice reward for sacrificing everything to warn the public and government. Unfortunately that’s the world we live in. I know it’s a lot to sacrifice and it is a hard road to walk down, but other people need to start coming forward.” In the 19-page report, titled The Secret Nuclear Threat and published online alongside a picture of his UK passport and Royal Navy identity card, McNeilly said he wanted “to break down the false images of a perfect system that most people envisage exists”.

He described bags going unchecked and said it was “harder getting into most nightclubs” than into control rooms, with broken pin code systems and guards failing to check passes. “All it takes is someone to bring a bomb on board to commit the worst terrorist attack the UK and the world has ever seen,” he wrote. McNeilly, who said he was on patrol with HMS Victorious from January to April, accused navy bosses of covering up a collision between HMS Vanguard and a French submarine in the Atlantic Ocean in February 2009.

At the time Ministry of Defence officials played down the incident and said the Vanguard had sustained only “scrapes”. But McNeilly said a navy chief who was on board at the time told him afterwards: “We thought, this is it – we’re all going to die.” The more senior submariner allegedly told McNeilly that the French vessel “took a massive chunk out of the front of HMS Vanguard” and grazed the side of the boat. Bottles of high-pressured air came loose in the collision, he claimed, meaning the British submarine had to return slowly to Faslane to prevent them from exploding. He also raised concerns about a number of his fellow seamen, including one whose hobbies he claimed were killing small animals and watching extreme pornography. Another submariner, whom he named only as “Pole”, had threatened to kill two fellow navy personnel and was routinely aggressive, McNeilly claimed.

He described how HMS Vanguard’s missile compartment doubled up as a gym, leading to potentially disastrous mishaps when seamen dropped weights near the boat’s missile firing system. McNeilly said he raised these and other concerns through the chain of command on multiple occasions, but that “not once did someone even attempt to make a change”.

The whistleblower also revealed that there had allegedly been a fire in the missile compartment when the boatwas in harbour. He claimed the blaze was sparked by overheated cables setting light to stacks of toilet roll. “The chief said if it had been at sea there would’ve been about 50 dead bodies on three deck because of the amount of people struggling to find an emergency breathing system,” he claimed. McNeilly said his decision to go public was “the easiest yet most painful” of his life, and that he had “sacrificed everything” to make the claims. He wrote that he was hopeful of receiving a pardon from David Cameron when he handed himself in to the police. “I also believe it’s in the prime minister’s best interests to release me. Prosecuting someone for alerting the people and the government to a major threat isn’t a good image for any government,” he added.

Angus Robertson, the Scottish National party leader in Westminster, described the claims as extremely concerning and said the allegations add weight to calls to scrap Trident altogether. He said: “It reads as a nightmare catalogue of serious safety breaches aboard and alongside these nuclear-armed submarines … Shortages of all types of crew on these submarines has been well-documented and the description of personnel in extremely stressful situations must be alarming given the huge responsibility some of these sailors are given.

“Failure to follow standard safety procedures is unacceptable in any workplace but on a Vanguard submarine on patrol it could result in extreme tragedy not just for those on board but indeed for the entire planet.” A Royal Navy spokeswoman said on Monday that the service disagreed with McNeilly’s assessment, describing the report as containing “a number of subjective and unsubstantiated personal views”.

The spokeswoman said it was right for the allegations to be investigated but that the publishing of the report did not pose a security risk. She added: “The Royal Navy takes security and nuclear safety extremely seriously and we are fully investigating both the issue of the unauthorised release of this document and its contents. “The naval service operates its submarine fleet under the most stringent safety regime and submarines do not go to sea unless they are completely safe to do so.”

Here is a good article to back up, with better knowledge I am saying: http://bellacaledonia.org.uk/2014/10/12/the-case-for-scotland-making-a-unilateral-declaration-of-independence-in-may-2015/

I heard of a possible Unilateral Declaration of Scottish Independence from the late Robin Cook MP in 1983 at the Labour Party Conference in Perth City Hall. I asked Robin about Labour’s prospects at the election. We will win Scotland, we agreed but it looked like another Thatcher victory due to English dominance of seat numbers.

He then said How can we let the Scottish people suffer another Tory government hell-bent on union destruction and driving down living standards? I am seriously considering leading all Scottish Labour MP’s over the burning bridge to join with the SNP and declare UDI

I went to School with Robin's son. Born in 1973, same as me. Robin was a good man. What does this image say to you? or suggest? Be Honest!!

Scottish football deserves more from the BBC, says SNP

_61659845_5310191

The Scottish game deserves and should get 10x the current £1m a season say experts

ABOUT TIME! I won’t hold my breath on this one. The BCC pay Scottish football £1M a year to show the SPFL. Now I have to say this, I did this article here Why The SNP Must Change This Uneven, Religious Singing <Click) Now let me be perfectly honest and put my hands in the air, the article was intended well, I had the right road, sadly it was taken 50/50 as half liked and agreed and half across Social Media in all platforms threw hate at me. All I can say is people perhaps leaning towards their football club, like I STUPIDLY done were thinking “My Team” or “To hell with the Glasgow 2” I am a Celtic fan but I don’t do the hate. Sure I can say ‘Sevco’ but I am a Celtic fan in MANY who say “We probably do need The Rangers, new or old back in the top league” I know a ton of fans Celtic, Hearts, Hibs and more who say the same. I got hate, did I deserve it? Maybe! Does it matter? Not really, who loses sleep over that blog or it’s issues. Look again at the percentages and it add’s up to what I was trying to say 

This issue here I am delighted to see. Now the Beeb I dislike giving ANY column or  airtime to, they are almost Anti-Scottish if you look back to #IndyRef last September 2014. One article to kinda prove our, my point, just the Beeb’s misdoing’s was by comedian Kevin Bridges, here it is here. Kevin Bridges admits to BBC lies, 100% <Click)  And others were coming forward telling the same Story of “We were told to not mention anything Referendum. Many asked Kevin why he never spoke about the Referendum and if you read above he says simply “We were told not to do so at the last minutes”

So to the story. The English game gets £68million for English Premier League JUST for a Saturday nights Highlights package, don’t get me started on the SKY TV Deal. Again when you put all the %’s together with money given by Scot’s to the Beeb and Sky TV it does not add up. So it’s good the SNP are challenging this in Westminster. Can they change it? The current deal has a year or so do go, and experts have done the math at £10M should be the fee for Scottish Football highlights on a Sunday night. The obscene amount the English game gets allows teams like Hull to give £50,000 a week to a player who worth maybe £10,000 a week in Scotland, the imbalance from the Beeb in all things Scotland is awful and I am glad the SNP are pressing these buttons.

Many say “Football has nothing to do with Politics and the SNP” or whatever, I did my article on the song book and got abuse, this one I am feelings people will agree. Football is Scotland’s pass-time. I know some will say “Not mine” but in reality Scotland is Football first and last and it’s our passion here, that’s a statistical fact. The issue is people don’t have money to go to games all the time and also there are more people in London than there are in Scotland, so right away Scotland just has low numbers in fan base. Saying that some teams who get 10,000 at home every other week CAN and DO get 25,000+ to Cup Finals, where to these fans go when there is no Trophies to win?

What are your thoughts on this? For me the Scottish game should get it’s percentage the same as the English game from the BEEB and Sky TV. For now it’s the BEEB but do expect the SNP to ask Sky Sports the same question. We are undervalued because of lacking in fiscal happenings. Saying that because there is no money good young Scottish players have came through, so there is the old argument of “Why pay £5M for Johnny Foreigner when we can train our Scottish kids better” And being an Ex-Football manager myself I see how badly even ex Pro-Players coach.

I was involved with many ex-players all the way through my coaching courses all over Scotland and also seen my own son’s and my teams when I invited ex Pro players deliver the most AWFUL TRAINING methods to 10 year old kids to 15 year old kids. Many just go through the motions, there is no “Why are you doing this training” or “Why have I asked you to run there or get into space in a different place” So for me the coaching can be better. No names but some ex Pro players coaching kids are so bad it’s untrue. I am not the best, I got to East of Scotland level with Civil Service Strollers, amazing club, very briefly before my disability stopped me due to pain and medication, I was like 34 years old. In my 15 years I helped and was involved in 19 trophies being won, not me, the team! We must coach players to understand why we ask them to do training drills, sadly we lack. So with no money to spend and bad coaching maybe £10M a year for starters just from the BEEB can help better coaching and help teams get better players.

Talk it away………

The SNP has today demanded that the BBC puts more money into television rights for Scottish football following conformation that the corporation has short-changed the game north of the border. The BBC is paying only £1million a year for Scottish highlights — compared to £68million for English Premier League rights. Given that about 10 per cent of the licence-fee revenue comes from Scotland it stands to reason that clubs in Scotland deserve a better deal in return. Commenting, James Dornan, the SNP MSP for Glasgow Cathcart, which covers Hampden Park, said:

“The future of Scottish football is very important, and our domestic game needs a proportionate share of money in order to help build for the future.“It is only right that if audiences in Scotland are helping to fund these major financial broadcasting rights packages, our game here is given proportional investment back.“A football accountancy expert has argued that Scottish football is worth ten times more than the rights secured – unless the issue of Scottish football clubs being short-changed is addressed, then our clubs will have their prospects undermined.“I am calling on the football governing bodies to do all they can to address this, and to continue to ensure that young people are inspired to play the beautiful game.”

Another £9 Million and our game improves, we pay the fee's!

Another £9 Million and our game improves, we pay the fee’s!

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

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.
