Police: Now is not the time

Written by RSS Poster McNoddy
A couple of thoughts.....
It would appear that material changes have occurred. I mean why else would we have another General Election after just two years?
I take it Ruth Davidson's bunch will be asking themselves, "How's that day job going?" I also take it the 'walk out' is cancelled.
If I was cynical, I might suggest the dawning true consequences of an inevitable 'hard' Brexit might have destroyed any potential for a Conservative & Unionist Party General Election win in 2020.

"Now is not the time."

BTW - Trident renewal is an anachronistic and abhorrent aberration.

Feel free to spread the joy by joining the SNP today.

Back in April our companion of nigh on 16 years bowed out.
Our regular reader will have known her only as Bumpy, but she preferred her true name of Ellie.

Over on Twitter the low oxygen level up yon munros has clearly got to Muriel Gray.

I like Muriel Gray.  I bought her books.

Can I refer all involved in the resultant furore to this evidential work.

Back in the very early eighties, following Varsity, I worked as a Field Researcher and Analyst for a very similar and indeed the first National Opinion Survey on Scots Gaelic under the auspices of An Comunn Gaidhealach. I can only say read the research and findings there. 

I also found this article to sum up what needs saying. 

Am I a native Gaelic speaker? Chan eil. 
Do I speak Gaelic? Tha, beagan.

But back to the hyperventilation over at Twitter.

Some observations:

  • Many countries have bilingual road signs where there is a significant linguistic rationale for doing so. Off the top of my head I recall Magyar script on Eastern Austrian road/village signs. This pleases me because my family name is Hungarian, although admittedly our lot emigrated back circa early 18th century and well before UKIP!
  • Gaelic was, and indeed is, spoken well past (i.e. south) Inbhir Nis agus An Gearasdan for...

There has been a wee bit of a kerfuffle recently over at Twitter in regards to Polis eating habits and canteens.

Ever prescient, I offer you this piece (sic) from 2008.

Combining two of my least favourite things gives you this ludicrous apocalyptic vision of the future.

There's democracy for you.

Funnily enough we Scots ain't feeling the love anymore......

I apologise, well no I don't actually, to my usual reader as I am about to get all Political.

I can imagine reader that you have just planted your forehead firmly on your desk schoolgirl stylee as I suggest this, but.....

I have had an enforced 30 years away from open and public politicking and even more so from an open allegiance and membership of the SNP.  I have lot of catching up to do and sooooooooooo much to say.

Stay with me!

There will be plenty musings to follow in the run up to the General Election and next year's Holyrood elections, but a wee tale to start us off.

I live in WAK (or Toyland if you prefer) and this has been a FibDem / Conservative and Unionist marginal for all the time I have known.  Liebour and the SNP have never really had a shout, such that many (including myself) voted tactically to keep the least worst option out. 

Recently in the Euros and Local elections the SNP have made patient and gradual progress into a challenging position, but I am now told it's a two horse race here in #GE2015. Literature delivered by the FibDems and Tories...
