That Unionist Gump momment.

Unionist Gump, "Resign from the SNP, you nasty (alleged) bum groper!"

Salmond does.

"No Fair! You should have been expelled by wee nippy, she's protecting you, she should go as well."

Ms Sturgeon explains no complaint has been made directly to the SNP Party of any form of harrassment by Mr Salmond of anybody. On Good Morning Scotland even the BBC presenter, for once, would not buy this banning 'sine die' line from Unionist Gump and left him with a new arsehole.

"How stupid independistas are" say umpteen Unionist Gumps, "funding Salmond's defence against the harrassment charges." (no criminal charge has actual been made, Police Scotland are just assessing the evidence to see if any criminality took place but, "Hey!", that's Unionist Gumpism for you)

Independence supporters point out the funding is for the judicial review at the Court of Session to see if the due process that brought about all this stramash is in 'procedure', 'fact' and 'law' equitable and sustainable under Scots Law and not simply the Unionist Gump witch hunt many independence supporters now believe it to be, triggered by the British Establishment to try and disrupt the independence movement in Scotland.

So as the Unionist Forrest Gump's wail, throw ash in their hair, rend their garments (it's OK they will charge the new hairdoo and clothing to expenses which you me and every other taxpayer has to cough up for) the stench of hypocrisy wafts high into the air to create a choking, deadly cloud of hubris and double standards which is hovering, waiting to reach critical mass before it collapses back on the whole boiling.

Questions will need to be asked of Ms and Messers Unionist Gump in the Holyrood Parliament to explain why so many identified sex pests and racial discriminators remain in their parties as MSPs or councillors, should they not be forced to resign?

At Westminster Mr Robertson should ask the Prime Minister why Conservative MPs who have been found to have actually sexually abused their interns are still in the party and have not been forced to resign from the Party and their seats, this apparently includes at least four ex or serving ministers in her cabinet.

Then there is the issue of the paedophile tendency within the Houses of Parliament at Westminster which has been covered up by Tory Whips and the Home Office since Ted Heath's day. Ms May as Home Secretary managed to 'lose' all the files of evidence on MPs who had been accused of being part of the peadophile ring. She also refused to release an unredacted copy of the Jillings Report on the paedophile ring operating out of a North Wales children home which supplied parties at the Westminster Parliament's favourite accommodation around Dolphin Square with girls and boys.

In November 2012, Anne Clwyd MP called for the legal archive copy of the report to be published, claiming that she was shown a copy in 1994: "I would say please get the Jillings report published because it shows... rape, bestiality, violent assaults and torture, and the effects on those young boys at that time cannot be under-estimated."  Channel 4 News reported that Sir Peter Morrison, a former aide to Margaret Thatcher and MP for Chester, who died in 1995, had been 'seen' driving a boy away from the Bryn Estyn home in North Wales. The Conservative Party said that they were investigating the claims nothing much has been heard since. See this Millflats Mercury article for more information

I await for the Tory Party Chairman to invite Ms May to resign from the Tory Party and leave parliament in disgrace for her part in the cover up of this disgusting crime, I am not holding my breath.

So against this comparison of the actual litany of sexual abuse and sexual criminality conducted by members of the Unionist Gump coterie across the UK, Mr Salmond's as yet unproven case of harassment, if indeed it ever had happened, should be balanced.

There is also the legal issue of why, at this particular point, what was confidential information, therefore information supposedly not to be released into the public domain, leaked to the Scottish Press?

If Wee Eck did not release the information and I believe him when he says he did not, then it has to have been some one high up in the Scottish Civil Service who fed the information to the Daily Record, as I hae ma doots the file would be let out of the grips of very senior management at Ocean House, given its sensitivity. Then the question becomes why was the confidential file leaked. The most likely answer is an attempt to destroy Mr Salmond's image and the only reason therefore is political. It is also interesting to note how close the leak to the Record was in relation to the embarrassing humbling of the BBC by Mr Salmond over the 'Wings over Scotland' copyright issue.

The only other suggestion I have is the actual complaint could not be sustained and the leak was to ensure Mr Salmond was covered in the same innuendo and contempt as the known, actual abusers amongst parliamentarians across the UK.

The problem for Unionist Gumps across the UK is the ordinary people of Scotland are not buying this latest dark arts operation as the rapid meeting of Mr Salmond's £50k crowd funding request for the Court of Session case has clearly shown.

We may end up being wrong on Mr Salmond, yet given the track record of the British Establishment's dodgy, dirty tricks campaigns against folk who threaten their wealth or position, whether it was Willie McCrae's or Dr Kelly's supposed suicides, I think we, on the ground in Scotland have the Unionist Gumps rumbled on this one.

Oh Look! A squirrel

Usually I have the title sorted before I start writing, this time I have not. I am struggling to put a headline to what is going on in my head at present.

Take something I know a bit about, PTSD. It appears some know it all Tory MP in Plymouth is saying it is just a scam on UK taxpayers by armed forces members trying to get a better pension. This on a day when all the armed forces charities are up in arms at the recent spate of suicides amongst a range of veterans due to Tory Government benefit cuts. This Tory thinks he has credibility because he is a doctor. Clearly he is totally shit doctor, lacking empathy, consideration or care for his fellow citizens, let alone service personnel, given what his party is doing to the NHS in England.

As all this is going on, Netanyahu apologists across the UK are trying to say that any criticism of Israel is "anti-Semitism", making up fake news claims about a Palestinian Wreath laying event where the great bumbler, Corbyn, was supposed to lay a wreath on Munich Terrorist Graves. The problem here being the Munich Terrorists are buried in a completely different country to the one where Corbyn laid his supposed "anti-Semitic" wreath. Let me be clear, there is a world of difference between the anti-Semitic, right wing loud mouths of the Tory Party and the far right in the UK and "anti-ZIonism", especially the ever more extreme Zionism of Netanyahu, a Zionism which been condemned from the start of Israel's journey by Semites such as Albert Einstein amongst many of the Jewish persuation including Rabbi's as well as secular Israelites protesting in Tel Aviv against Netanyahu's latest definiton of who is an "official" Israelite, only this week. The big problem for the Zionists is they are historically linked to this form of "apartheid". Many Zionists in the USA and in Germany in the 1930's agreed with Hitler that Jews were non-German. German Zionists even did a deal with Hitler where anyone who joined the Zionist program to emigrate to Palestine from Germany received goods and materials in lieu of their financial holdings retained by the Nazi German State.  It is a matter of record Hitler believed the millions of Reich Marks it cost in preferential trading agreements with Zionist settlers in Palestine was worth it, if it solved the "Jewish problem". The arrangement fell apart as the cost of the war began to bite on Germany's reserves and the alternative "solution" was put in place by Heidrich and Himmler. Even then the Zionists in Israel, like Begin, tried to do a deal to keep the program operating. The Irgun Terror Group, run by Begin, offered to hit crucial Allied targets across the Middle East on Hitler's behalf, if the emigration pipeline could be kept open. Zionists were only interested in saving their own adherents and it seems the defence of the illegal settlements on Palestinian owned land is simply a continuation of the same project. Let us be clear it is not just Arabs or Palestinian Christians that could be deemed non-Israelites but non white Jews from other parts of the Middle East who are already under pressure from the more extreme wings of the Zionist Organisation in Israel to "go back to their own countries".Israel, in Zionist thinking, is increasingly only for white, American, Zionist Jews.

Then there is the fake news about Scotch Labour claims to have built more new "social' homes and that if returned to  power in Scotland they will do so again. A quick look on Wings over Scotland confirms that between 1999 and 2010 there were six new council homes built. Compared to the numbers of 'social' and council housing built since 2010, under SNP direction, they are clearly deranged. How about the 1% rise in homelessness Labour have stated in their BBC press release (aka Reporting Scotland). Statistically it is with the range of error on any such Government data collection but again a quick check with Wings and since 2010 homelessness in Scotland has seen a steep drop from a high under Labour.

There is silence over the latest figures which shows Scotland as the only part of the UK holding its own economically in the international money market's Brexit feeding frenzy or Shell's recent declaration of at least another 50 years of oil and gas from their new discovery in Scottish waters, the silence over the Exxon finds west of the Shetlands is also rarely mentioned even though in 2010 David Cameron snuck up to Shetland to pump the first gas from the field.

The car crashing into the anti terrorist screen at Westminster or the bridge failure in Genoa are screaming out of the airwaves of establishment truth while the silence over Israel's continuing genocide in Gaza or the murder of children by the Saudi's by bomb or starvation in Yemen, is swept under the UK news carpet.

Meanwhile the same British Establishment news are all het up about the forth coming blood bath that is to be the Tory Conference between Mayhem and Tweedledum rather than addressing the serious issue the Mayhem's Brexit Plan is dead in the water as the EU Brexit negotiators have given it a big fat "NON!" The UK is on a cliff edge of fiscal disaster which is seeing all the multimillionaire Brexiteers shifting their money not just out of the UK but into other currencies. Yet where are the news headlines about the Brexit rats leaving the sinking ship?

Over in the US of A Trump is either calling out evidence of his ineptitude, double dealing and corruption as "fake news" as he seeks to persuade everyone in the US they should only believe what they see on Fox News, a service renowned across the US of A as a right wing mouth piece for Trump and his wealthy backers.

Yet according to the same, self serving journalists and broadcasters who fail to hold any Westminster politician (except SNP) to account, the real worry for the people of the UK is "fake news" from blogs such as this.

Well they should know, I suppose, they peddle fake news on a daily basis:

"Oh Look! A squirrel"  (My headline at last.)

Brexit, that's going well - isn't it Ms May

So "Maggie" May comes to Scotland, runs in, runs out, gets boo-ed and disappears back to Englandshire without saying a word about Scotland's Brexit benefit, except there will be one. This is in spite of the reality that the economists and actuaries, across the world, are saying it is going to cost the average UK citizen the loss of thousands of pounds in terms of earning power, increased unemployment, SME bankruptcies and in general set the ordinary UK citizen back to the 1930's in terms of levels of poverty. This apparently is a "good deal" for Scotland.

As an aside, her apologists keep on about how reliant Scotland is on exporting goods to England and what a disaster it would be if this trade volume was cut and England looks elsewhere for these products, services and energy provision on "Scotch" independence.

Oh that's scary you think, at first, then your second self tells you "tae hud oan a minit" while your logical self suddenly realises that is a lot of product, services and energy supply England are going to have to find instantaneously from somewhere else than Scotland.

To keep it simple: just think about how much energy Scotland provides England to keep its lights on, gas cookers operating and vehicles on the move. Now imagine if an independent Scotland says its OK England, go off in a huff, we will use the North Sea HVDC links to export our excess electrical generation to the EU market, because being in EFTA/ EU means we can. Where will "Little Britain" (aka England) make up the deficit from?

They are outside the EU, will Ireland export to them via the HVDC link in the Southern Irish Sea or France continue via the current English Channel HVDC link, a link that is working at full capacity on a daily basis.

Let's say this new Little Britain of the Tories fevered imagination starts constructing gas powered generating stations as if there is no tomorrow they will remain dependent on gas which will come from fracking England stupid or external sources, such as Russia, via the Euro-pipeline as the North Sea, where the majority of the gas fields now lie in an independent Scotland's waters, with whom they will not deal - according to Ms May - is not available.

So now this Tory Little Britain has not just electrical power to find from elsewhere than Scotland but gas as well; to power all the gas turbine generating plants they will have to build in a hurry to stop the lights going out.

Around six years ago the failure of Longannet to come on line due to a boiler flare out caused a national grid surge which tripped out the current nuclear power stations down south. The end result was lights going off all over London and the South East of England, multi-frame computers over heating and catching fire as far west as Oxford which cost millions to fix, the "City's" trading system for shares and financial transfers went down for 24 hours costing firms millions, sections of the tube and overland rail system stopped, transformers blew and, in general, mayhem ensued. Now imagine on day one of a Little Britain Scotch Trade blockade what would happen to the Little Britian's National Grid with the current range of Scottish Hydro plants unavailable to balance demand in an instant, as happens at present. Then throw in Scottish wind power and the growth in tidal power that is starting in Scotland that will not be available to the Tory Little Britain's electrical supply. Now think back to what happened when just Longannet failed to come on in time, six or so years ago, and multiply the effect of that failure many times over.

All this is without even considering the impact of the reduction in gas and crude oil supply from the Scottish North Sea not coming ashore on Tee-side to the Tory's Little Britain.

Throw in the food shortages which will ensue in Little Britain with out Scottish beef imports, for example, and you realise just how empty the "biggest trade is with England" Unionist line becomes. A newly independent Scotland will still trade with the EU and through the EU, with the rest of the world via either EFTA or as a full EU member, in an advantageous way for the Scottish economy in a way Brexit, Tory Little Britain will not be able to.

So Ms May and the rest of the Unionists bring on your trade war with an independent Scotland as, just like Brexit, there will only be one loser - Tory Little Britain.
