The World This Week from Mennies.

10 February 2023

The mess of Sturgeon’s Government, Stuart McDonald’s schoolboy mistake, Ukraine.

Sturgeon, a rabbit in the headlights of a car

So, another week in and an exciting week it was in Scottish politics. Recently the Scottish government passed the Gender recognition bill, which among other things permitted people who wish to be different sex other than that of birth, to simply self-identifying. Yes, quite simply if you want to change your sex then you simply called yourself a man or woman whichever the case may be.

To make matters worse they rejected an amendment to stop those suspected of or convicted of, sex crimes from using this immensely stupid law to, manipulate the criminal justice system to their own advantage.

So there we had it, a law that took 6 years to prepare and in doing so gaslighted the general population into believing this law was benign and would not make a lot of difference to existing laws. This meant that the policy the Scottish government had adopted by stretching the credibility of the equalities act, of allowing biological sex offending men to self-ID as women, thereby gaining access to women’s prisons, was supposed to be normalised.

What on Earth could possibly go wrong? Well, just about everything and that is exactly what happened last week when one man was found guilty of two rapes and on his way to Barlinnie prison, was diverted when someone in the Scottish government discovered that during his trial, he had self-identified as a woman.

Two days after that another inmate guilty of numerous offences also self-identified as a woman and was about to be transferred to a women’s prison.

This caused a huge outcry on social media, forcing the Scottish government to panic and change its mind several times on what actually constitutes a woman. Nicola Sturgeon actually said when asked to define the rapist’s sex that she did not know as she did not have sufficient information!! My god, we have a first minister who does not know what a woman is or a man for that matter. This should have been a resignation matter.

Probably, the reason she is not resigning is that she has so many skeletons in her ministerial cupboard, that she has to remain in power for as long as she can to keep a lid on it.

Now no sooner had these two examples happened but another transgender woman/man was accused of kidnapping an 11-year-old child.

These past two weeks have driven a coach and horses through the Scottish government’s Gender reform act, which, by the way, has been blocked by the UK government because of issues with encroachment on UK law and in particular the equality act.

Nicola Sturgeon is acting like a crazy woman and has to be removed from power before she does any more damage to the credibility of the country.

Stuart McDonald, the SNP MP with the intellect of a 10-year-old school boy.

Stuart Mc Donald is the SNP spokesman on defence and an ardent arse licker of the well-known criminal, London property developer and Nazi enabler, Zelensky. Well, he made an announcement the other day that his emails had been hacked by, guess who? Russia. Now why Russia would have any interest in a second-rate politician with the mind of a school child is anyone’s guess but the point of both Stuart’s admissions is to try to convince everyone of two things, none of which is credible, and that is one, he is important enough to interest Russia, and two, that the bad Russians will change his emails to show he has been doing a lot of bad things.

So tell you what Stuart, why don’t you just hand your hard drive over to the police and they can see exactly what you have been writing and to whom, knowing the SNP at the moment they might also find some other stuff that would be of interest to them?

The fact is that Russia never had anything to do with the downloading of his emails. His emails have been breached by the simplest of schoolboy attempts at phishing where he was sent an email asking for his login details and he supplied them. Probably some bored school kid.

Unfortunately for Stuart, Craig Murry has received the whole cache of them, and it will be an interesting few days ahead if they are published.

Yes indeed, not a good week for the SNP in Holyrood or Westminster.

Briefly, Ukraine , Russia is winning against the Nazi Ukrainian government and their Kapo leader ( look it up) together with the might of NATO ( the US) who are providing intelligence ( with a small i) logistics, and very advanced target marking and designation.  Ukraine, to date, have lost in the region of 350,000 troops and is now conscripting 16-year-olds. As I said at the beginning of this conflict ( well not actually the beginning which was in 2014 when Ukraine started a genocidal war against the seceding Donbas region) the US will fight Russia to the last Ukrainian.

OK so enough of the doom and gloom and the comedy show that is the Scottish government now ( anyone in the Western Isles waiting on a ferry to arrive?)  It is Friday night and time for a pint in Mennies.

To all my friends the world over I wish you a great weekend.


Remember this.

War is where young innocents fight and die
on behalf of older hypocrites who don’t.



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. I have no fears about the fall of this regime and its effect on pro independence sentiment within those who believe in the nation. What do you think, are we witnessing the downfall? Will NcDonald’s emails have much in them? They seemed to be worried.

      1. I hope so because that would be the truth. There are still too many in denial and we can’t build again until the corruption is cleaned out.

  2. You’re absolutely right about Nikla, she has to be one of Westminster’s most valuable assets. They simply won’t tolerate her leaving her position as the independence movement roadblock.
    She is more effective at constipating the movement than a month of morphene. As for McDonald’s email collection, well I’m eager to see the truth about the little shit, but worry about Craig Murray’s freedom in our quite totalitarian mess of a state.

    1. I don’t agree with Craig Murray’s stance on everything but the man’s and excellent Scottish nationalist, likes the truth and a skilled and honest journalist that puts him in massive credit with me. It would be sickening if he were to suffer again for trying to provide us with information we need.
