The World This Week From Mennies

Wednesday 21 December 2022

The World this Week comes from off the coast of North Africa. In Grand Canaria and gives my concerns at what is going on in the parliament we put in place to represent us but certainly is doing everything but represent us at present

Finally found a cafe with WiFi which is almost impossible but this place seems to cater exclusively for wify seekers.

Sitting here rather numb at what happened yesterday in the Scottish Parliament.

The gender recognition bill amendments were debated and although some brave people voted for amendments such as ones to stop those with sex attack records and current accusations being excluded from women and girls private places, almost all of the amendments were defeated.

Make no doubt about it but in effect the Scottish Parliament led by Nicola Sturgeon voted to allow biological male sex offenders into women’s toilets and changing rooms.

There is no other way in which to describe this other than a perverts charter.

I have kind of stayed out of mainline campaigning ( not that there has been anything to campaign for since Sturgeon took over) since the referendum in 2014, where I and a group of committed individuals campaigned, very successfully under the Yes Bus team throughout Dundee.

Because of this crazy legislation brought in by Sturgeon and her close band of what can only be termed, weirdos, I have decided to offer my , and that if the Yes Bus team’s services to any one standing against any standing SNP politician in Dundee.

I have been a staunch supporter of independence all of my life but for a long time now ( 8 years to be precise , since Sturgeon came to power) it has became apparent that the SNP no longer are the party of independence and are now the party which seeks to destroy women’s rights and safety.

I have been trying to convince people of this ever since Sturgon was made leader of the SNP and have taken plenty of abuse for holding common sense views.

We have to rip up the status quo and start again. It will take a while but it will be worth it.

Every single one of us had a Mother and these are the people who now need protection from the pernicious cult that the SNP under Sturgeon has become.

There is a battle ahead , let’s get our sleeves rolled up



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. Well said Bob. I left Scotland many years ago but most of my relatives still live there. I am absolutely ragin about this, as you correctly call it, Pervert’s Charter which will
    undoubtably endanger our womenfolk; not to mention the scorn that will be heaped on Scotland’s reputation.
    This moronic cult, the party I supported for 50 years has to go. The population has to wake up. I pray for a Ceausescu moment.

    1. Yes , but getting through to the mindless cult followers is very difficult , although I must admit that when I posted or blogged any thing negative regarding Sturgeon in the past ( and I have been doing it for about 7 years ) it would have been immediately followed by an avalanche of hate mail and criticism. Since yesterday I have only had ( as far as I know ) one negative comment and that was an insipid “ well best vote Tory “ attempt at sarcasm. Between facebook and Twitter. Twitter postings receiving several thousand impressions. So perhaps there is hope.

  2. And here was me thinking that you only spoke spic Bob.
    I was a card carrying member of the SNP when Alec Salmond was in charge but ceased being so as the result of Mrs Murrell’ (aka Nicola Sturgeon) soft touch justice (or was that just us)
    Policy regards sentencing criminals.
    Then she poured petrol on the fire by introducing the gender recognition Bill to make it easier for trans people to change their sex on their birth certificates without having lived in that gender for over 6 months (or whatever) and not being examined by a trick cyclist beforehand, men to women and women to men but as this is a personal choice the medical costs involved for such gender changes should also be equally personal and not carried out by the NHS and should have been carried out prior
    to them being permitted to change their gender on their birth certificates merely by adding a codicil to their original birth certificate which clearly proves the gender in which they were born because by doing so will prevent future partners from being hoodwinked into forming a relationship if they hide the fact that they’re transgenders.

    1. Spot on Ally . The whole thing is a mess and designed not just to cover people genuinely at odds with the body they were born with , but to encompass the whole spectrum of people who would wish to be in close proximity to women in a situation where these women could feel uncomfortable, or indeed threatened. It is opening up the gates of hell.

  3. Research the “Recovery” model for people experiencing addiction.
    This was adopted by the Scottish government years ago & is also quite mad. Similar to giving junkies the keys to a poppy field until they decide to hand them back.
