Another week in and a busy one at that. Found my way down to Mennies for a refreshment.
Looking at the week past and the news waves have been dominated by the struggle to choose a leader of the Tory party and indeed a new prim minister of the UK.
We now have two contenders Sunak and Truss. Oh dear oh dear , it is the equivalent of choosing between Laurel and Hardy, but mind you, the membership of the Tory party have plenty experience in this as the last time they chose the clown Johnston and look what a mess he left.
I have a feeling they will choose Truss as it would appear she seems to be getting most of the press, which tells me that the powers behind the scene are behind her.
Now Truss is as thick as two short planks of wood and therein lies the reason for her support. She will be easily manipulated.
Sunak is coloured and therefore has a major handicap in conservative circles.
One of Truss’s masterpieces as foreign secretary was to encourage young men to illegally go and fight in Ukraine against Russia. Some did and were killed. One young man was captured and us now on death row, no apology from Truss.
I read a wonderfully accurate blog today by Peter Young, titled Patriots and Traitors and I post it below with a strong recommendation to read it. I basicly implies what I have been saying from 2015. The SNP have been seriously compromised by the UK intelegence services and that is why we are where we are on the road to independence, absolutely no where. Have read it will open your eyes in a more eloquent manner than I ever could
Elsewhere the war in Ukraine goes on . Russia is winning and freeing more of the independent Donbas area by the day. America is once again loosing in their proxy war. Another attempt at regime change gone wrong. When will they learn.
The other day there was an agreement to allow grain shipments from Ukraine in order to alleviate some of the world wide food shortages brought about by idiotic sanctions on Russia. Today there was a report of a missile attack on a target very close to the port in Odessa which forms part of the agreed corridor for wheat exports. Of course there was the usual condemnation of Russia attacking agreed safe areas. Now I have not heard but I would bet my bottom dollar ( or rubble for that matter) that the target hit was military hardware deliberately hidden in the safe area by the Ukrainian army. That is what they have been doing throughout the war , using civilian infrastructure , sometimes with the civilians still in it, as emplacements and firing points.
Ok so enough of politics for one night and back to the buisness at hand, which is a couple of relaxing pints.
