The World this week from Mennies

Friday 20August 2021

Sturgeon and the Greens, Afghanistan.

So, the end of another very busy week and a visit to my favorite hostelry with a few thoughts on the week gone by

Sturgeon and the Greens

Today Nicola Sturgeon diluted the very small amount of democracy we have left in Scotland by forming pact with the Green Party, allowing two members of that party into government. No one in Scotland voted for that, this was a decision made by Nicola Sturgeon.

Last May the people of Scotland voted for an SNP government, mostly in the hope that they would cease the habit of a lifetime and actually keep their word for once . Their word being that despite 6 previous mandates going unused, they would actually use this one to go for independence.

What did we get? Well the sum of the promises was to have the independence guru, Mike Russel photographed posing beside a horse box with a few gay yes signs on it. Seriously this is it.

What should have we got? Well we should have by now been in the middle of a serious independence campaign, or better still, if Sturgeon had not panicked and instead of cooperating with Alba and allowing her sheep to give their second vote to Alba, in the process, carrying out an embarrassing and vindictive campaign to vilify an innocent man , we could have at this very moment been in the process of conducting separation arrangements with the UK This of course as we all know now ( even most of the handmaidens) deliberately allowed a tranche of unnecessary unionist members to be elected.

So, today we had the unedifying sight of Sturgeon welcoming the green Party to the fold with all sorts of reasons why this will benefit Scotland. But, it is nothing to do with benefitting Scotland, is it? No, as in her usual untruthful mode, Nicola did not mention the real reason and that is to force through her Gender Recognition Act.

The GRA is the most iniquitous and dangerous piece of legislation ever foisted upon Scotland. It opens the gate to allowing biological men access to Women’s and children’s toilets’ and changing rooms . It will allow the policies of Stonewall to insidiously creep into schools and it has already started with children as young as 4 being coached to declare gender doubts. As if that is not bad enough they are encouraging them not to tell their parents.

Nicola Sturgeons Scottish government is stuffed full of people who seem confused about their gender, make no mistake about it, and these policies are a danger to our women and children. The greens are also stuffed full of strange people.

So when you hear Sturgeon saying that this alliance which will allow Greens, unelected for the propose, to be part of the Scottish government, is for the benefit of the Scottish people, do not believe a word she says, she is lying.


Five weeks ago I predicted exactly what has happened in Afghanistan because of the ineptitude of the US and UK governments. To save me going over it again I attach the blog below. We are governed by clowns in a back circus.

So now to the main propose of the evening , a nice pint in Mennies.
To all my friends wherever you my be on this fragile planet of ours, I lift my glass to you.

And remember ” All it takes for evil to prevail is for good men to remain silent”




I have been in business for well over half a century but I learn something new every day. My politics are the middle of the road. I believe that the far-right and far-left are equally harmful. Jim Murphy ( at that time, leader of the Scottish Labour party) asked me if I called myself a socialist. I said, "no Jim, I am not a socialist, I am a capitalist, but a capitalist with a social conscience.

  1. Absolute pish Voting SNP / Greens was the most sensible option for all Independence voters since the mess the SNP made of Both Votes SNP in 2016. Had the SNP endorsed the Greens then ALBA would probably not have stood in th elast Scottish election.

    1. That of course would never have been viable as the greens are as small as they are for a reason. They are simply not popular as they have weird policies and weird people

      1. A nasty, contemptuous, vindictive cult, Bob. They will fill their pockets while they send the odd pro independence statement out via one of their disinterested junior spads.
        It seems serious just now. I predict that the sociopathic tendencies of this dysfuntional, contemptuous, colonial, political marriage I predict will end up in a few laughs for us yet.
