The University of Edinburgh is hosting a "Resisting Whiteness" event for a conference. Imagine the outrage if a similar event was held but stating "Resist Hispanics." Anti-White discrimination is only going to get worse.
Iain Macwhirter, political commentator for the Herald and Sunday Herald, told IndependenceLive.net recently: "It is clear that the Brexit process hasn’t just meant that the U.K. is leaving the European Union. It means that there is going to be a new [U.K.] Union afterwards and it is going to be much more of an incorporating Union. A much tighter controlled Union and a much more centralised Union."
During the interview Macwhirter went on to say: "it looks like decision time, doesn’t it really!".
Turning to the impact on Scotland of recent events in the U.S., Macwhirter said: "what we’ve also seen, distressingly, with the kowtowing, the obsequies attitude towards the new president of the United States is that it won’t just be Brexit U.K. that we’ll be in. It will be Trump U.K. because we’re so desperate to strike some kind of trade deal, for whatever reason – it seems like a mystery why you would give up a perfectly good free trade deal with Europe, to go and try and have one with America, but that’s what they intend to do. The kind of concessions that are going to be made to Donald Trump in the process, I think, most people here will find profoundly distasteful and have al sorts of implications for the standards and integrity of the National Health Service, Health and Safety, agriculture, GM crops, fraking, you name it, it is all going to be down there, and I think that is going to make people think very carefully whether or not they want to continue down the road of a U.K. which is basically under the tutelage of Donald Trump.”

“It is clear that the Brexit process hasn’t just meant that the U.K. is leaving the European Union. It means that there is going to be a new [U.K.] Union afterwards and it is going to be much more of an incorporating Union. A much tighter controlled Union and a much more centralised Union.
“I think before the whole Brexit process began there was a sense, even among many in Westminster, that the U.K. was moving towards a kind of federal constitution, where there would be a division of powers. The Scottish Parliament, on domestic legislation at least, would be its own boss. It would decide what the laws were to be in Scotland about these areas, these domestic areas – you know, education, as I said, the law, criminal justice, the environment etc. And that the border issues, maybe like currency, defence and foreign affairs, would be managed on a U.K. bases. And there are plenty of models for that obviously. You have in America and Canada, states like Quebec which have extraordinary latitude. States in America like Oregon which legalised cannabis, which has the power to set its own statutory minimum wage. These are very significant powers.
“So there was a feeling that this was kind of where we were moving. That almost by default Briton was become a federal entity. And I think that really the Brexit process has exposed that, clearly that is not the case. And the test of this was really the Sewel Convention – whether or not the Scottish Parliament now had a right to exercise sovereignty in the areas of its own responsibility? Or did it now? You can’t have two ways about this. Clearly it does not. Now this doesn’t mean that Holyrood is useless. It can still pass lots of laws. But it will always under the understanding that theses [new laws] are explicitly endorsed by Westminster, and they can be taken away whenever necessary. And that will be important coming down the Brexit road when we get to the Great Repeal Act, Great Repeal Bill, which will supposedly repatriate all the laws that are currently exercised by Brussels – agriculture and fisheries and what have you. [Control over these laws] will go to Westminster initially. There is a suggestion that Scotland will get more powers as a result of this process, but, if it does – and I doubt it very much – they will on the bases of this provisional nature. That so long as they accord with Westminster’s view of things, then the Scottish Parliament will be allowed to exercise its power. As soon as there is a constitutional issues, a constitutional confrontation it will be asserted that the U.K. has the over ridding authority.”

surely a gofundme should be set up for the young Scottish lasses who battled sharks and tempests to save a man and child from certain death from the killer giant squid that are known to be in the area . luckily they called the coastguard and 10 people showed up for a photocall
actually they could have used the Lilo to send pint sized global warming activist greta Thunberg to America so she can attend the conference
Eurostat data shows that the per capita GDP of Scotland is lower than the UK average.
This isn't to say Scotland is a poor region, it's actually wealthier than many regions of England, however the wealth generator that is South East England and London raises income and taxes for the whole of the United Kingdom.
The SNP has a very left leaning socialist view that the role of government is the provide as 'free' services to the public as possible.
In Scotland NHS prescriptions are free, university tuition fees are free, council tax is lower, Scotland has no 'bedroom tax' as well as a slightly lower income tax rate for poorer workers.
Scotland needs to choose if it should pursue independence and to face upto a likely reduction in living standards.
A 2012 BBC Scotland History Documentary hosted by Jon Henderson.
Nowhere in the British Isles was the Viking connection longer-lasting or deeper than in Scotland. Hundreds of years after their first hit-and-run raids, the Norsemen still dominated huge swathes of the country. But storm clouds were gathering. In 1263 the Norwegian king Haakon IV assembled a fleet of 120 longships to counter Scottish raids on the Norse Hebrides. It was a force comparable in size to the Spanish Armada over three centuries later. But like the Armada, the Norse fleet was eventually defeated by a powerful storm. Driven ashore near present-day Largs, the beleaguered Norsemen were attacked by a Scottish army. The outcome of this vicious encounter would mark the beginning of the end of Norse power in Scotland.
Marine archeologist Dr. Jon Henderson tells the incredible story of the Norsemen in Scotland. Visiting fascinating archeological sites across Scotland and Norway, he reveals that, although the battle at Largs marked the end of an era for the Norsemen, their presence continued to shape the identity and culture of the Scottish nation to the present day.
Documentary hosted by David Morrissey, broadcasted by Discovery Channel in 2012.
Mel Gibson’s Oscar winning box office smash of 1995 tells the story of real life Scottish rebel and freedom fighter William Wallace. With savage battle scenes, a cast of thousands and a tragic love story at its heart, it is a sweeping historical epic brought to the screen with stunning photography set amongst the highlands of Scotland. But ever since it was first shown historians have asked questions about the accuracy of the movie. Interviewing script-writer Randall Wallace we discover that the inspiration for the movie was the stories generated by an ancient Scottish poem about the life of Wallace. But an analysis by modern historian’s show that this poem, as much as any movie, was designed to create a legend rather than explain history. Remarkable new archaeological finds from Stirling Castle reveal just how brutal medieval warfare was. And a series of unique experiments with weapons of the day – including medieval war bows -- are conducted by historian and weapons expert Mike Loades. These experiments graphically demonstrate the damage 13th century weapons could inflict, and they tell us just how accurate Braveheart’s famous fight scenes really were.
A 2014 History Channel Documentary hosted by John Michie.
By 1314, through effort and intrigue, Scottish King Robert Bruce had captured every major English-held castle except Stirling. Now English King Edward II would try to stop him - and subdue the Scottish rebellion forever. This is the story of the pivotal campaign culminating at the decisive Battle of Bannockburn, in the shadow of Stirling Castle. We search the hearts and minds of the characters whose efforts at the Battle of Bannockburn would build a nation.

The tale turns on a brother's plot to overthrow his sister in a ruthless bid for power. James Stewart, Earl of Moray, uses clan power to first control and then rid Scotland of his sister Mary. As she battles conspiracies, plots and counterplots, Mary is trapped in the cruel and tumultuous world of clan blood feuds. After they murder her husband Lord Darnley and Mary flees into the arms of the Earl of Bothwell, the most ruthless of Scotland's clan chiefs, civil war breaks out. Mary escapes to England, never to return again.

Episode 2: Brothers at War Neil follows the rise of Clan Stewart to become Scotland’s Royal dynasty. It’s the blood soaked tale of a bitter family feud. In a vicious contest, using clan power to plot, manoeuvre and murder their way to power, the story culminates with the dramatic assassination of King James I below a tennis court in Perth, 1437. Neil traces this family feud through clan combat, royal romances and spectacular Renaissance courts to the brutal torture and execution of the last rival Stewart, Walter Atholl, when the king’s widowed Queen Joan wreaks a terrible revenge for his treachery.

On 16th June 2019, I decided to phone-in to Ally Baly's show Scotland's Talk-In, which is broadcast every Sunday on the Bauer Media Radio Network (Clyde 2, Tay 2, Westsound, Forth 2, MFR 2 and Northsound 2), to discuss the then-recent outrage about the BBC wanting to scrap their free TV Licenses for the over-75s. I openly advocated for the scrapping of the TV License and explained why the media must be privatised and the customer must have a choice in what they watch along with how they pay for it.

After being left out of the main meeting where Councillors would eventually vote unanimously several hours later to oppose Flamingo Land's proposals, the people left outside due to the public gallery being full stormed (well, sneaked in via the doors) into the hall of West Dunbartonshire Council's HQ in Dumbarton. I was also asked to leave for filming but the lady backed off after the other protesters stopped her from doing that.
Time to meet up in the Church Street Council Offices in Dumbarton before 6pm BST to say bye bye to Flamingo Land and have the Councillors do the same.
Nearest Train Station: Dumbarton Central (via the Glasgow Queen Street, Helensburgh Central, Edinburgh Waverley, Airdrie, Cumbernauld and Oban/Fort William/Mallaig train services). The town can also be reached via the frequent 1A and 1B First Bus Services.

A 2015 Channel 5 History Documentary hosted by Toby Jones.
"The Last Days Of..." History is peppered with men and women who changed the world, only to become more controversial in death than they were in life. Each episode features a panel of writers, thinkers and historians who set about exploring the downfall and legacy of these characters. This is history as it should be – compelling, dramatic and highly contested. It makes us question everything we thought we knew about the lives and deaths of the heroes and villains who have shaped our world.
John Guy, Kate Williams and Robert Hutchinson are among those debating the legacy of one of Britain's most tragic monarchs as they examine whether Mary, Queen of Scots, was a victim of her cousin Elizabeth I's treachery or the author of her own destruction. They look at her claim to the English throne and the events that led to Mary being kept under house arrest for nearly 20 years before she was executed in 1587.
A Scotsman wearing the Welsh flag reads an Anglo-Saxon poem from an unknown poet, that was perhaps written between 975 and 1025 AD, some good hundreds of years ago, but of course with an excellent translation by J.R.R. Tolkien himself and the finest editorial work by his son Christopher,. Being surrounded by jaw-dropping forested vistas and being eaten by swarms of vile blood-sucking mutant-mosquitoes, and also fried under the boiling sun of the hottest month of the year! How much better can it get?! Let's NOT find out!
Since discovering the magical wild west that is BitChute I am now in the process of migrating all the YouTube content over to what I will now be calling my second home.
The men and women of Scotland have a rather magical way with words as I'm sure anyone who's ever met one of us would agree. So for your viewing pleasure, enjoy some Scottish tweets as read by this very Scottish man...fish...manfish?!?
I think it's a fairly universal concept that we all enjoy seeing people get exactly what they deserve when they're acting up. That is quite literally what today's video is all about so make yourself comfy and lets get stuck in!
Sturgeon claims that Scotland is better off in the EU while also maintaining that Scotland is worse off in the UK . how many more refrendums do we need? maybe its time the Scots made up their minds what they wanted because referendum results do not seem to get respected . another thing is how come the SNP have not condemned the EU for refusing to accept the Catalan referendum where they voted TWICE for independence , Sturgeon and the SNP high command are silent
Please note that I fully acknowledge that the clip belongs to Kevin Baker but unless he sets up an account on Bitchute, the video will remain on this site.
Originally aired on 22nd May 2017.
"In a historic broadcast on The Kev Baker Show i welcome Iain Tough, Cheryl Scott & Mel Kelly to cover the shocking truth about the SNP that Nicola Sturgeon does not want you to know.
We get into how the SNP hijacked the independence hopes of an entire nation, and find out just who the SNP are, and who it is that Nicola Sturgeon serves.
Independence is not confined to Scotland and we have two guests, David Raventos & Delia Forrest, joining us LIVE from Catalonia where there is a similar fight that ties right back to the Scots indy fight."
Got approached earlier by 2 officers from Police Scotland who wondered if I was effectively going to cause disruption at the protest. They asked for my flags and luckily they weren't offended and went on their way.

So was planning to head to Glen Pean Bothy but the water on Loch Arkaig was been pushed up onto the road due to the heavy winds and rain. There is always the option of going to A'Chuil bothy but this is accessed along the same loch side road :( So where to. As I had to head back along to the A9 to get home, then the Cairngorms it is. There are quite few bothy's in this area but as the weather was to be very bad this would exclude some of the more remote location so Ryvoan Bothy it was. Have never stayed in this bothy as its known to get very very busy and big dogs dont mix with big groups. You always end up with a least one person acting like prey.
So what do I think of the trip. The walk in is very easy and the landscape is stunning. It gives good access to some nice walks. Although you may walk past lots of trees there arent any by the Bothy so all fuel for burning must be brought in. As this is next to some popular walking routes you will have plenty of folk dropping in for breaks and at weekend and holidays always expect this bothy to have folk staying over night. Water is near by although a private toilet break may involve a walk. Would I go back. Probably not there are better and less bust bothy's. Pros. Short walk. good location for hill walking/MTB Cons. Very Busy. Raised sleeping platform is limited to 2. 4 if you dont mind spooning. Rest will be on the floor. Lack of fuel on site.

On the afternoon of April 18th 2018, my mother Christine and I took part in a voluntary clean up at the back of St James' Retail Park in Dumbarton, Scotland. This area led up to the gates where Network Rail are allowed to go through to (nearest train station geographically is Dumbarton Central) and it has been reported before (https://www.fixmystreet.com/report/572336) to the Council but also passed onto Network Rail (#150117-000094).

A quick video showing the scenery near Fort Augustus in Scotland. Fort Augustus (57.14319°N 4.68066°W) is a settlement in the parish of Boleskine and Abertarff, at the south-west end of Loch Ness, Scottish Highlands. The village has a population of around 646 (2001).
The differences of opinion between the Pro globalist Scottish people and the anti globalist English and Welsh are insurmountable . Unless the Scots have a change of heart then I do not see any way that the Union can survive. The irony is that its the so called ' Nationalist ' parties that are most keen to cede their sovereignty to Brussels. The axis between the SNP, Sinn Fein, Palid Cymru backed by most politicains, oligarchs, Muslims and Jews nearly consigned England and Wales to permanent EU rule . Scots need to decide what they want . They cannot be in a Union and in the EU at the same time anymore than a man can ride two horses at the same time
Christine Grahame MSP in the Scottish Parliament, 26th January 2012, giving a fascinating speech about where sovereignty lies in Scotland and the history of Scotland's "jigsaw" constitution.
'[Consider] the claim of right from 1989 and the words:
'“We, gathered as the Scottish Constitutional Convention, do hereby acknowledge the sovereign right of the Scottish people to determine the form of Government best suited to their needs”.
'That Constitutional Convention was proposed in a private members bill way back in 1980 by the SNP leader, Gordon Wilson. Where did that sovereign right come from? There is no written UK constitution, but there are fragments of an incomplete constitutional jigsaw, some of which predate the treaty of union. We have to go as far back as the declaration of Arbroath—a declaration of Scottish independence and of conditional monarchy. Talking of Robert the Bruce, it says:
'"Yet if he should give up what he has begun, and agree to make us or our kingdom subject to the King of England or the English, we should exert ourselves at once to drive him out as our enemy and a subverter of his own rights and ours, and make some other man who was well able to defend us our King; for, as long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule.”
'That shows that he was a king who was in office by leave of those who, at the time, represented the people. They were a narrow bunch—some 51 magnates and nobles—but, nevertheless, he was on parole.
'The significance of those words, resonating through the centuries, is that the monarch’s power to rule was conditional on the will of the people of Scotland. That is reflected in the fact that Queen Elizabeth is Queen of Scots and not of Scotland. Therefore, sovereignty—now exercised in this democracy by various institutions—is exercised through the expressed will of the Scottish people.
'Even if the Parliament did not exist, if the Scottish people streamed out on to the streets of our towns, cities and villages to say with a clear voice on megaphones, on marches and online that they wanted an independent Scotland again, that would be a declaration of independence. No challenge from the Palace of Westminster, the corridors of the United Nations, this place or any courts could gainsay that. The Scottish people would say that they done it, and they done it their way.'
