Joanna Cherry – the Taliban’s useful idiot and King’s Counsel

Scientifically a man can’t become a woman and there is nothing that gender recognition reform legislation can do about that – no more than King Canute could turn back the tide.

But speaking outside the Scottish Parliament on the 21st December, Joanna Cherry SNP MP & KC said

“and last night in the building behind me decent ordinary female citizens of this country were threatened with arrest in the public gallery”

so, you might hope, here comes Joanna to the rescue, right?


It is not just that women are threatened with arrest but that women and feminist men defending women’s rights are threatened that if we dare to resist arrest lawfully then we will suffer traumatic injury to our wrists by police using standard UK-issue rigid handcuffs

– torture instruments approved by every Queen’s & King’s HMG His/Her Majesty’s Government and Scottish Government ever since Tory Prime Minister John Major and Labour First Minister Donald Dewar.

Threatening dutiful citizens with arrest and injury is how the UK has always subjugated the people – but Joanna’s careerist selfishness as a QC & KC meant that for her, what mattered most was the monarchy, the Queen and the King, who came first, while the people and our human rights not to be injured, traumatised, terrorised into silent obedience came last in Joanna’s priorities, at least until the hopeful day she ceases to call herself a “KC”.

“particularly as a woman of the left”

“Left”? Joanna ISN’T a left-wing socialist; she’s a right-wing King’s Counsel, speaking for the King’s interests versus the people’s. Labour women should not be fooled by Joanna’s SNP Tartan Tory lies, no more than Labour Red Tory lies.

“Left” therefore meaning to Joanna kissing the left arse-cheek of the UK monarch, so to speak?

The trouble with Joanna’s and the SNP’s so-called “Plan B” is that it turns out to be another Plan A by surrendering Scotland to misrule by the UK monarchy, its King’s Counsels like Joanna and the BBC’s rigging of politics.

Here’s a link to a real Plan B for Scottish Independence – mine.

Joanna does not as she claims have “a proven record of standing up for equal rights”.

Joanna has a proven record as a Quisling, a traitor to the people – first as a Queen’s Counsel and now as a King’s Counsel standing up for the inequality of monarchy and for the rights, privileges and interests of the monarchs of the House of Windsor – first Elizabeth and now that right Charlie NotMyKing.

“we will win this fight .. why .. the women’s movement has been rejuvenated”

Joanna is complacent in that she has not confronted the dangerous misogynist enemy represented in the Scottish Parliament by Scottish Labour leader Anas Sarwar whose Imperial Pakistan’s Taliban recently exterminated the Afghan women’s rights.

Secret Pakistan – supported the Taliban in Afghanistan

Pakistan’s diplomats around the world are window-dressing for the ISI / Taliban’s global war on women. Diplomatic relations should be broken off with Pakistan and their embassies and consulates closed. Scots should close the Pakistani consulate in Glasgow.

“whether you are a nationalist or .. a unionist, we all want a better country”

Joanna is dangerously naive.

Although assumed to be “a unionist” Anas Sarwar supports Imperial Pakistan and he thinks that Afghanistan is a “better country” after Pakistan’s proxy Taliban takeover and presumably he also may believe that Scotland would be a “better country” after being Talibanised and women’s rights eliminated?

Beware that we can’t take any of Sarwar’s denials or claims to “support” women at face value. Lying and back-stabbing is par for the course for supporters of Imperial Pakistan.

“and the way to do that is to legislate well after a civilised debate”

Again, Joanna is hopelessly, dangerously naive.

Afghanistan’s people tried peaceful legislation but the Taliban killed Afghan legislators anyway.

Many of the younger Afghan women had gender studies degrees from a liberal university education – for the fat lot of good that did them when the Taliban came for their country.

Women need guns and a militia because nothing less will defend women’s rights.

Sarwar’s Taliban’s war against women must be defeated by military means, like a women’s militia which would replace the UK constitutional monarchy with a constitutional right for women to bear arms in a well-regulated women’s militia (so no trannies allowed ๐Ÿ˜€ )ย  so that never again would women be abducted, raped and murdered by the kingdom’s policemen as happened to Sarah Everard.

But Joanna Cherry as a KC, a King’s Counsel, has set her face, her career and her political reputation against replacing the constitutional monarchy with anything more democratic or more feminist.

Common Weal is a mess and needs taken out of the hands of Amanda Burgauer

Replying to ‘Yes movement is a mess and needs taken out of the hands of SNP’

The Herald’s Writer at Large Neil Mackay talks to Common Weal director Amanda Burgauer about the current state of the Yes movement as the pro-indy think tank publishes a new book called Sorted: A Handbook for a Better Scotland (Image: Herald Design)

“the big ideas around currency .. could only happen post-independence”

Findhorn Ecovillage set up their own “Eko” currency and handful of English towns set up their own local ยฃ. Andrew “Cringe-to-the-ยฃ” Wilson is the the front man for the SNP leadership’s economic cluelessness and political cowardice in never daring to set up a new Scottish currency.

The National uses Wilson’s Cringe-to-the-ยฃ on its cover to sabotage a relaunched independence campaign.

The Scottish Parliament and Scottish Government could set up a new Scottish currency NOW! But the SNP-Green ScotGov refuse to set up a new Scottish currency – exactly as SNP-run councils have always refused to set up a local currency. Why?

The SNP leadership’s awareness about economics is as superficial as that of your average bank clerk.

See my finance and economy blog posts as this link

“no membership of Nato. Trident would also go.”

Putin’s useful idiots will love that.

What’s Common Weal’s plan to stop Putin’s Russia doing to Scotland what they are now doing to Ukraine?

(Spoiler – CND surrender monkeys don’t have a plan!)

An independent Scotland should remain at the core of NATO and offer to continue to host the British nuclear deterrent submarines and weapons bases on the Clyde in perpetuity.

Keep Trident

“come offline, she says. โ€œMost of the people whose votes we need arenโ€™t on social media.”

Most are watching BBC or BBC-influenced TV.

But online is the only place to read my call for occupying BBC Pacific Quay and calling out Sturgeon’s police state for stopping occupations.

The only way to stop the BBC’s stream of biased unionist imperial propaganda while censoring the case for Scottish independence is to occupy BBC Pacific Quay, Glasgow and other BBC premises in Scotland.

Sturgeon’s police state would arrest anyone trying to occupy BBC premises in Scotland to crush the independence movement Sturgeon has set her face against, having settled for devolution in 2014.

So that’s why my verdict is that Common Weal is a mess and needs taken out of the hands of its director Amanda Burgauer.

Oh there is a Road Map and a Plan B to win Scottish independence that even Sturgeon can’t stop but you won’t read it in any of Common Weal’s publications.

Charles is NOT King in Scotland where the “Union of the Crowns” may be unconstitutional.

Today’s meeting in St James’s Palace, London, the deliberations of the UK Privy Council meeting as an Accession Council upon the death of Queen Elizabeth and its proclamation of “King Charles” aren’t definitive as regards the constitutionally independent country of Scotland, never properly unified as just a part of the United Kingdom.

So Charles is not “King of Scotland”, constitutionally speaking but then neither was his mother Elizabeth “Queen of Scotland”, nor did any of the predecessor monarchs at the Court of St James’s Palace enjoy an unchallenged constitutional claim to the throne of Scotland.

The constitution of the Kingdom of Scotland was clearly defined by the Declaration of Arbroath in 1320 which renders as unconstitutional any union of the crowns, including that attempted in 1603.

In bearing the Lion Rampant, historically the Royal Standard of the Kingdom of Scotland,

it was my duty to challenge the legitimacy of Queen Elizabeth in Scotland and to point out to my fellow Scots that we were under no constitutional obligation to welcome Elizabeth to Scotland as the monarch whom the UK chose to foist upon Scots.


As far as I am concerned, as a supporter of Scottish independence who is seeking to establish a Republic of Scotland where Scots can democratically elect our own president as head of state, I didn’t welcome Elizabeth and her family to Scotland

and my lack of welcome applies equally now to her right Charlie of a son and his family.

In my opinion, it is long past time for Scots to flush the medieval institution of monarchy down the toilet of history and we can do that most easily by banning Charlies and the Windsor royal family from Scotland, including banning them from Balmoral, Aberdeenshire.

The big change to the West’s nuclear policy after the Russian invasion of Ukraine

Nuclear Arsenals of the Big 5

Biden may not intend a change in the West’s nuclear policy but big change is coming.

The rest of the West – the UK, France, Europe, Australia, Canada, (and the eastern members of “the West”) Japan, South Korea, Taiwan etc. – all will see the need for a big change from our naive trust in the US nuclear weapons policy to deter Russia which has been found wanting when Biden failed to escalate to save Ukraine from Russian invasionย because he, or another US president, may fail to escalate after an attack on us.

After all, Joe Biden doesn’t want World War 3 and so better to indulge a little sacrilege by betraying the USA’s “sacred commitment” to NATO Article 5 – “an attack on one, is an attack on all” – right Joe?

The rest of the Western world needs a credibile nuclear deterrent to deter Russia when the US declines to do so.

The West – excluding the US – needs to be able to match Russia nuke for nuke – 100s of ICBMs and 1000s of warheads.

The UK and France standing alone – as Biden has left us – do not have enough of a nuclear arsenal to deter Russia.

The US has the only comparable nuclear arsenal to Russia and when the US President fails to deter Russia – like Biden failed to – the world is at Russia’s mercy.

Non-proliferation is dead

The era of nuclear weapons non-proliferation is dead and Biden killed it by refusing to risk nuclear war to save Europe, specifically Ukraine, from Russian invasion.

3 nuclear weapons blocks of countries

I foresee that there will probably be 3 new blocks of nuclear weapons powers.

1. UK+Australia+Canada

2. France+the European Union

3. Japan+South Korea+Taiwan

Any 2 blocks or all 3 blocks could cooperate for nuclear weapons development, production and deployment.

So yes, many countries which presently do not have nuclear weapons will in future get their own nuclear weapons arsenals – Australia, Canada, the EU, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and there may be others.

This is inevitable following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the rattling of nuclear sabres by Russia and the failure of the USA to escalate in Ukraine by using US forces to have no-fly zones, boots on the ground or otherwise go to war against Russia in Ukraine.

Between them, the nuclear superpower dickheads – Putin and Biden – have closed the era of nuclear weapons non-proliferation. The Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT)ย is now not worth the paper it is written on.

The nuclear weapons game is afoot.

UPDATE – Nordic Nukes

With the news that both Sweden and Finland are intent on joining NATO, this opens up the prospect of establishing a new Scandinavian nuclear weapons power block, deploying, say, 4 nuclear weapons submarines, “boomers” to add the equivalent of the nuclear weapons deterrent capability of the UK or France to the western alliance!

4. Sweden + Norway + Denmark + Finland

Nordic Nukes! ๐Ÿ˜€

CRIMSON TIDE: Labour Party on course for election victory!

Yesterday’s breakthrough poll was no fluke. Today’s YouGov poll confirms the Labour Party’s double-digit poll lead.

The Labour Party is on course to a UK General Election Victory – because Labour are thumping the Tories in England and Wales and don’t need any support from Scottish Labour. So the SNP and the campaign for Scottish independence are not harming the chances of Labour winning in the UK, after all. All Labour ever needed to do was beat the Tories in England and now that’s exactly what Keir Starmer’s Labour Party is doing.

Labour should dare the Tories to call a general election or invite the Queen to do so, if BoJo is running scared of the Crimson Tide as he should be. The men in grey suits will be paying a visit.

Labour take 10 point poll lead over Tories. THAT’LL DO!

Projection of Westminster General Election results based on a poll published 12 January 2022.
View High Resolution Image

That’ll do

Breakthrough poll suggests a 331-seat general election victory for the Labour Party led by Keir Starmer.

BoJo the killer clown is on the ropes after taking a political pounding for telling lies denying he was partying while the country was under a strict pandemic lockdown.

At Prime Minister’s Questions, Starmer called on Johnson to resign.

On poll results like these, Starmer would be elected as Prime Minister if a General Election was held today.

As the Plusnet guy says, “In Yorkshire, when we say THAT’LL DO it means it’ll more than do.” ๐Ÿ˜€

Let’s call a spade “a spade”

People can believe all kinds of things and I don’t mind.

What I mind is having my Twitter account unjustly suspended because I have dared to call a spade “a spade” (a t***** “a t*****”) and the woke army has maliciously reported my tweet.

There’s no “hateful conduct” in my tweet whatsoever.

Simply calling a spade “a spade”.

That is not “hateful” it is simply descriptive.

The woke army and their generals spend all their time trying to get competent people, scientists, CANCELLED, banned, excluded – so that the woke army can rule supreme, in parliament, in universities, in the police and courts and of course, in social media like Twitter.

But this woke army are INCOMPETENT KILLERS.

The woke army have killed 140,000+ Britons by misgovernment of the pandemic but for the woke army that’s a price worth paying to get competent people, scientists, cancelled, excluded and banned so that woke can rule.

I am not surrendering to those woke killers. I will fight.

Stand by your tran**

Homelessness & The Housing Benefit Shambles

What Lorna Slater and the Scottish Greens are not telling us.

A big issue is Council benefits officials suspending claimants’ housing benefit for no good reason, on a whim, on a rumour, suddenly, with no notice, with no chance for the claimant to be heard before they suspend, with extreme difficulty in getting heard after they suspend, with unanswered claimant / customer telephone help lines, with emails that they “endeavour to answer within 28 days, however, this may not always be possible due to the high volume of enquiries received at certain times”.

Unless you are lucky enough to have savings in the bank then you can’t pay your rent while your housing benefit is suspended and that’s the first step on the road to homelessness.

Whether or not a tenant claiming benefits is actually evicted for being unable to meet their rent because of delays in benefits, any inability to pay rent when due will harm relations between tenant and landlord so any delays in benefits will acquire a bad reputation for benefit claimants as tenants.

Certainly that’s a big issue in Aberdeen, with my claim for housing benefit being suspended now and then, even though I’ve been on benefits and living at the same address for years. I always get it sorted out, eventually.

Neither Lorna Slater, nor Patrick Harvie, the Tenants’ Rights minister, nor any other Scottish Government minister has ever done anything to stop Aberdeen City Council suspending benefit in such an uncaring fashion so I assume that carelessness could be repeated by every other council in Scotland too, although I would hope not.


Any “New Deal for Tenants” must improve tenant rights vis-ร -vis the local council’s handling of claims and reviews of claims for housing benefit.

A New Deal for Tenants should insist there are no delays in awarding benefits and no suspension of benefits once awarded.

Suspension of housing benefit should be outlawed. Once a claim has been granted, it should be a crime for the council to withhold a claimant’s due housing benefit on any pretext pending a review of the claim or any change of circumstances.

Unless the council has irrefutable proof that the claimant can no longer possibly be entitled to the housing benefit claimed then the claimant should be given the benefit of any doubt and the housing benefit continue to be paid as normal until all outstanding questions answered, evidence gathered and uncertainties cleared up, one way or another.

Claimants should be fully heard at every stage that their claim is being assessed for the first time or reassessed because of a change of circumstances.

Claimant / customer telephone help lines should be answered immediately or if that is simply impossible (when calling out of office hours) then callers should be invited to record a message on an answering machine leaving their telephone number for a council official to call back in the next working day.

Emails should be replied to within 1 working day.

Scotland’s Economy. Working to deliver economic transformation.

This is my reply to “Scotland’s Economy – Working to deliver economic transformation” – by Kate Forbes MSP published on the Scottish Government’s blogs.

The economy of Scotland suffered so badly and 10,000 Scots died with the Covid pandemic because the Scottish Government was tied politically to the misgovernment of the Scottish economy and the pandemic in Scotland by the United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who, in my opinion, is a man unfit for that office and something of “a killer clown”, so to speak.

Scottish leaders have a duty not only to our fellow Scots but to the people in the rest of the UK to be blunt about Johnson’s failings and to call for his removal from office.

The ministers of the Scottish Government chose to ignore good advice from able Scots, such as myself, to pursue different, more effective pandemic control policies – for effective quarantine for all entrants to Scotland, for faster vaccine supply arrangements, etc. – and instead chose to tie Scottish Government policies to the killer clown’s apron strings, calling that embarrassing dependence a “4 nations approach”, with cosmetic policy differences between England, Wales and Northern Ireland, akin to rearranging the deck-chairs on the Titanic.

It seems to be the obvious lesson to draw that if the Scottish Government is ever to have a “National Strategy” – for pandemics, for economic transformation, for anything – that is worthy of the name – then the National Strategy must be distinctly other than “tied to the apron strings of the UK”; it must be independent of the UK in certain critical areas.

A National Strategy for Economic Transformation must aim to win economically significant Scottish Government borrowing powers and the pursuit of that aim must, surely, begin with a critique of the history of the policies which has left the Scottish Government without such borrowing powers.

In my view, this means repudiating as akin to “UK daylight robbery of Scots’ savings” the policy of the UK since 1999 to deny to the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Executive then the Scottish Government proper, economically significant, ยฃ Sterling government borrowing powers.

Holyrood has always been a pocket-money parliament lacking economic powers and that’s a grievance that the National Strategy for Economic Transformation must address in no uncertain terms.

Scots’ savings have been borrowed by the UK Government and through the Bank of England’s monetary policies, borrowed also by the financial institutions of the City of London – for their banksters’ own enrichment and we may assume often debauchery at the expense of the Scots.

Considering the above, it is curious to me that Kate Forbes would seek the advice of Nick Macpherson, the Permanent Secretary to the Treasury from 2005 to 2016 and therefore the top civil servant saying “Yes Minister” to the UK Treasury governing ministers – Blair, Brown, Darling, Cameron and Osborne – the robber-ministers of the Scots from 2005 to 2016.

I assume that Macpherson will not be able to return to the Scottish Government the savings of the Scots which he has embezzled on behalf of his UK Treasury minister bosses – amounting to, over those 11 years, at say the economically reasonable expectation of Scottish government borrowing powers in normal times of 8% of Scottish GDP – about 88% of Scottish GDP – or about ยฃ150 billion.

UK net borrowing % of GDP

Graph: UK net borrowing rose to 11% of GDP in 2009/10.

Clearly, if surprisingly Macpherson has come bearing a UK offer of compensation to the Scottish government in respect of its unfairly denied borrowing powers over previous years – let’s say a UK cheque for ยฃ150 billion payable to the Scottish Government – then I can see why indeed he would be given a seat at the table of Scottish government economic advisers. Otherwise, if Macpherson offers nothing but his empty-hand after the UK’s crimes of theft of Scots’ savings then why is this villain’s name listed as an adviser, Kate?

Macpherson, for the UK, has robbed Scots but I at least am not blind to that robbery. I can see what the UK Treasury has done with Scots’ savings. I encourage my fellow Scots to view this man’s tainted advice with suspicion.

When Scots’ savings are robbed by the UK then the least that the Scottish Government should expect from its own advisers is not to offer bad advice to agree to be a partner in crime for such a robbery.

The Scottish Government should expect good advice never to agree to a bad deal Fiscal Framework Agreement which denies the Scottish Government its proper borrowing powers, never falsely to characterise a bad deal as a “good deal”, as Anton Muscatelli gave bad advice about the 2016 bad deal Fiscal Framework Agreement, so one wonders why Muscatelli is still being asked for his bad advice?

The correct advice, if a good deal on borrowing powers is not on offer from the UK, is to advise the necessity that the Scottish Parliament must now legislate to establish Scotland’s own currency – and I have advised this course of action often, even being so bold as to suggest the name “the Scottish Pound Bannockburn” – SPB – for our new currency.

Scotland having our own currency would mean that 8% GDP borrowing powers in normal times and much more borrowing than that to deal with an economic crisis such as the Covid pandemic, would be borrowing powers secured and unlimited by the UK.

Aberdeen’s “Energy Transition Zone” is compromised by its association with Sir Ian Wood, whom I have already criticised in my earlier email, appended below. However, I do agree that the transition to “green”, renewable energy, offers the Scottish economy many business and trading opportunities.

I would like to warmly welcome the selection of Roz Foyer, the General Secretary of the Scottish Trades Union Congress. The advice of this advisory council must be agreeable to the representatives of the workers of Scotland of course.

I thank the other persons who have agreed to have their names added to this list of advisors and my main regret is that my name has not been added to that list.

“This is an official invitation to the entrepreneurs and thinkers, the job creators and the hard workers to join our national endeavour by working with us to make Scotland thrive.” – Kate Forbes

Thank you for the invitation Kate Forbes. I would be delighted to join our national endeavour by working with you and the Scottish government.

I should sadly note that I may not be able to do so as fully as I would prefer, for example, while I am held as a political prisoner or otherwise obstructed by the fascist police state acting on the nods and the winks of the SNP.

Yours sincerely etc.

As you may know, I have offered to serve as a special adviser to Kate Forbes (and made her some other offers too, no doubt). I stand rebuffed but I still have things to say of relevance to any dutiful Finance and Economy Secretary of any Scottish Government.

“Opportunity North East” is a front for Queen’s man Sir Ian Wood who DESTROYED opportunity in the N.E. as Chancellor of RGU, crushing my academic freedom by continuing the policy to exclude me and no doubt other worthy scientists and academics.

Chancellors Wood at RGU and Camilla at Aberdeen Uni are a FASCIST THREAT to Scotland’s world class tech hub aspirations.

The decades of mismanagement of Aberdeen’s universities by their royalist, fascist officials has set back the economy of Scotland and the UK.

Wood and Camilla are agents of the monarchy that has set back our economy and ruined any contribution I might have made if I had been given a fair opportunity and not put out of both of Aberdeen’s universities by their fascist lawyers like a dog.

Students and the public shouldn’t support ANY university staff pay claim or strike

Democracy and freedom are the solutions.

Queensferry Crossing Animated 3D Computer Model

An animated 3D computer model of the Queensferry Crossing as viewed from a viewpoint which circles around the bridge model.

The initial purpose was to confirm at a glance that the cable data and methodologies used to calculate cable length (which data I need for my electrical cable-heating design) were accurate or at least plausible.
