Boris Johnson: Devolution & Scottish Parliament “A Disaster” – You Bet! 

Boris Johnson has denied that he opposes devolution as he attempted to end a major row in Scotland caused after he branded the creation of the Scottish Parliament a “disaster”. 

In an address to the Scottish Conservatives virtual conference, the Prime Minister claimed his leaked comments, made in an online call to northern English Tory MPs, had not been reported “entirely accurately” and suggested he had been referring to the SNP’s “abysmal” performance in government.

Mr Johnson was reported as telling MPs that devolution had been “a disaster north of the border” and was Tony Blair’s “biggest mistake”.  His comments dismayed Scottish Tories, with the Holyrood elections just six months away and the SNP already on course to claim a majority and a new mandate for a second independence referendum.

In recorded remarks to the conference, Mr Johnson said: “I know comments I made the other day on devolution have been widely reported, leaked, not entirely accurately, but never mind.  “But since no press were in the room, I’ll give you my unvarnished view: the way the SNP have handled devolution in Scotland has been a disaster – from plummeting education standards, low business confidence and the lowest satisfaction ever in public services – their record is abysmal. “The key is to have policies to show how devolution can work for Scotland, the people in Scotland, rather than the SNP obsession with making devolution work against the rest of the UK.”  (Taken from The Telegraph platform on YouTube)

Comment:

If anyone can specify the benefits to Scotland of Devolution, in everyday life, and the Scottish Parliament as a practical and effective tool of governance, I, for one, would be interested to learn and, if necessary, revise my opinion. At the moment, I tend to agree with Boris, although, frankly, it pains me to agree with him about anything.  What about you?   

Turmoil USA: Tucker Carlson Quotes Archbp Viganò’s Letter to President Trump

For the third time, the above video has been removed on YouTube. None of the programme seems to be online, so we can’t publish the clip of Tucker’s comments about Archbishop Viganò.  However, the clips are included in the following Dr Taylor Marshall video…

Comment: 
Tucker seems to do his homework, as indicated in his inclusion of parts of Archbishop Viganò’s letter to the President. And he covers so many angles in his search for the truth about what is going on right now, in the name of Covid-19. We know that he’s watched across the world, and that other commentators will now be alerted to the existence of the Archbishop’s letter.  This can only help encourage those with a mind to investigative journalism surely?

Thanks, too, to Dr Taylor Marshall for his commentary, with inclusion of the segment from Tucker’s show.   

Covid-Con Continues As UK Population Keen For Even Less Liberty – Pollsters…


British Prime Minister Boris Johnson today warned that a vaccine will not deliver a ‘knockout blow’ to coronavirus as Tories insisted he must not use the prospect of jabs to keep the country in lockdown longer. (From YouTube, 11 November, 2020)

Comment: 

How incredible is this: pollsters claim that a significant number of people in the UK are willing to continue the lockdown lifestyle indefinitely, with even tighter Government control over their lives. The question has to be why?   Is it, as some of us would argue, the lack of God in the lives of these terrified (of a virus!) people; indeed, is it the absence of God in the countries of the UK,  the absence of God in all national institutions?

We hear the Americans say, almost routinely, “God bless America” – have you ever heard anyone said “God bless the UK”?  Or any constituent part of it – God bless Scotland, for example?  Never.  So, there’s a clue.  Lacking God, empty souls, Godless societies, must make the most of this life and if that means NOT living life to the full, but living in fear of a Covid-19 death (highly unlikely unless  you’re over 85) then, so be it.  Crazy or what?   

US Election Fraud: Blatantly Biased Corporation(s), Bishops & Other Liars…

Editor writes…

We are witnessing the blatant attempted theft of Donald J. Trump’s clear election victory in America, with the shameless assistance of the utterly biased mainstream media (represented in the above headline by the evil BBC and its ilk)  and by Facebook and Twitter.  That is bad enough.  However, the absolutely scandalous intervention of the US Bishops – and, without a doubt, the UK Bishops to follow, for they are every bit as anti-Catholic – has prompted our American blogger, RCA Victor, to pen the following excellent Open Letter…
Open Letter to the US Bishops…
To The Democrat Party at Prayer, aka The Lavender Mafia:

Your acceptance of the alleged victory of the Deep State’s marionette candidate, the utterly corrupt, traitorous, mentally defunct, pro-abortion, pro-transgender apostate Catholic, Joe Biden, is certainly not surprising, given your long-term intimate relationship with the leftist side of the aisle – a side that, conveniently, supplies you annually with millions of Federal dollars to “re-settle” illegal immigrants.

Nor is it surprising to witness your constant public carping and chipping away at President Trump’s attempts to snatch America from the tentacles of global socialism and restore American sovereignty – a sovereignty that has been thoroughly compromised for years by your fair-haired boys like Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama.

What is somewhat surprising, however, is the eagerness with which you display your sycophantic stupidity and corruption: not only in endorsing an anti-Catholic candidate and his even more anti-Catholic running mate; not only in the not so subtle encouragement of your flock to vote for him (thereby putting millions of souls in mortal danger), but now, in blithely endorsing the result of the most massive and blatant electoral fraud in American history.

I can only conclude from this that you, like Joe Biden, are not only apostates, but also traitors. Therefore, I consider the lot of you not only enemies of the Catholic Church, but enemies of America as well.

May God have mercy on your darkened souls and hardened hearts.

Sincerely Yours In Christ
(Signed)  

 

Comment:

As of November 4, Biden had got over 70.7 million votes, more than anyone who has ever run for president, the National Public Radio (NPR) reported. This count includes 300,000 more votes than what Obama got in 2008, which was the previous record. Biden surpassed the popular vote record of 69,498,516 set by Obama in 2008. Source

Here’s a video which has amused us often on this blog, detailing some of Joe Biden’s gaffes – not so funny any more if you think that he may well cheat his way to placing his finger on the nuclear button… 

Ask yourself, seriously, is it remotely likely that Joe Biden could have won this election fair and square? Come on, man! 

And then ask yourself, very seriously, if he manages to cheat his way to victory what lies ahead for the rest of the world?  I’ve heard Australian commentators express concern that Australia’s “China problem” will only get worse.  Correction, friends in Aussie-land, the entire world’s “China problem” will only get worse. That’s for sure.  

In summary – thank you sincerely, RCA Victor, for calling out the US Bishops on their scandalous support for pro-abortion Biden.  It’s due to the dire state of the Church in our times that we desperately need Donald J. Trump for another four years… That message comes through loud and clear in  your excellent letter – thank you!   

Lord Sumption: Only Permanent Lockdown Will Work (That’s The Plan)…

Former Supreme Court judge Lord Jonathan Sumption has criticised the government’s approach to the coronavirus pandemic, saying it has employed fear as a means to justify its actions. Speaking with talkRADIO’s Julia Hartley-Brewer, he warned that Downing Street could hold on to its emergency powers after there is no need for them: “The problem is that fear is the main pillar of every authoritarian government. Fear has been skilfully and I fear deliberately employed throughout this crisis.” (From the Introduction to the above video on talkRadio’s YouTube Platform).

I really can’t improve on some of the comments posted over at YouTube, underneath the above video… Which of the following points do you find most compelling? 

Banned from, going out, protesting, freedom of speech, seeing family, living our lives…. This is Tyranny…

The cases are fake and so are the polls. Absolutely treasonous government. Covid 1984. Dystopian future becoming a dystopian present

The soldiers of the past must be spinning in their graves at how easily the British public have rolled over and surrendered their hard-fought freedom, we’re a disgrace to these brave men and women.

Lockdown Boris and co in prison. No to forced tests and vaccines.

When you takeaway people’s jobs and you leave them with no money to pay their bills and feed their children and then they lose their homes trust me COVID-19 will be the least of your worries. 

“Tyranny” strikes me as being a compelling  summary of what is going on, but then so does “Dystopia” – what we are experiencing is the very opposite of “Utopia”, that’s for sure;  the commentator who makes the point about the British solders also resonates – I’ve even seen Government ministers having the sheer nerve to wear a poppy this month despite betraying everything that it is meant to represent. 

Share your own thoughts about the interview. Especially say (1) whether or not you agree with Lord Sumption’s answer to that key question: will we ever get our freedoms back?  And (2) answer this question: where is the religious equivalent of Lord Sumption? Obviously, and scandalously, Pope Francis is never going to fight for our personal and religious freedoms but is there no bishop anywhere in the UK who shares Lord Sumption’s concerns? If not, we need to explore why not… again!   

Police State UK: Nurse Arrested For Rescue of Mother From Care Home… 

Comment: 

A woman has been arrested after taking her mother from a care home before England entered a second lockdown. Ylenia Ashton was filmed by her daughter Leandra after she had been handcuffed and placed in a police car following the incident. Speaking to Julia Hartley-Brewer, Leandra Ashton told talkRADIO they made the decision ahead of the new lockdown because they had been unable to see her grandmother for nine months: “The fact there are rules in place that are separating families… I find disgusting.”  [Taken from TalkRadio YouTube platform.]   

Leandra had explored all the proper channels to have her grandmother restored to the care of her family, but did not succeed.  If, as we keep being told, the NHS and care workers are overwhelmed, wouldn’t you imagine that they would be delighted to find a loving family willing to take one of their patients home?  Is this yet another example of the Covid Fascism which we see everywhere, with self-appointed police people bullying the rest of us.  Except, this time the real police are the ones doing the bullying.  But did they do this on a whim?  Or are they told to crack down and use heavy-handed tactics on anyone – anyone, no matter age or state of health (ironically) – in order to further the Covid/Lockdown agenda?   Has Leandra touched on something very sinister when she identifies  that there are “rules in place for separating families”?  

Trump Not Pope Francis Will Protect Against World Dictatorship – Viganò 

Comment: 

Archbishop Viganò has written another outstanding Open Letter to President Trump.  Key highlights are published in the above video, and you can read the entire letter here

It is chilling to think that, as the Archbishop says, the words of St Paul about the one who restrains evil [in these times] is not, as should be the norm, the Pope, but it is, in fact, President Trump:  ‘It is you, dear President, who are ‘the one who opposes’ the deep state, the final assault of the children of darkness,’ His Excellency writes. ‘Place your trust in the Lord.’

The Archbishop emphasises that the President is manifestly God’s instrument in the world today, on the brink of Communist dictatorship – the Pope should be hanging his head in utter shame:  ‘In Sacred Scripture, Saint Paul speaks to us of “the one who opposes” the manifestation of the mystery of iniquity, the kathèkon (2 Thess 2:6-7). In the religious sphere, this obstacle to evil is the Church, and in particular the papacy; in the political sphere, it is those who impede the establishment of the New World Order. 

As is now clear, the one who occupies the Chair of Peter has betrayed his role from the very beginning in order to defend and promote the globalist ideology, supporting the agenda of the deep church, who chose him from its ranks. 

Mr. President, you have clearly stated that you want to defend the nation – One Nation under God, fundamental liberties, and non-negotiable values that are denied and fought against today. It is you, dear President, who are “the one who opposes” the deep state, the final assault of the children of darkness.’ End of Extracts…

Can there be any question in the mind of any Cath0lic – or any person who claims to live by the Gospel; indeed, any person who is right-thinking and of good will – that we must pray (and Americans must vote) for the re-election of President Trump…  Any question, at all?   

Science New Religion – Once We Accept Police State, There Is No Turning Back…

Comment:

Note that the interviewer, Richard Madeley, is keen to put on record the fact that he is “not a conspiracy theorist”. Even in the face of self-evident sinister totalitarian governance, people like him in broadcasting still think that this is about a virus.  Gimme strength.  Remember, in a recent previous programme his interviewee told him about The Great Reset and he said he would check it out. Clearly hasn’t done so.  Gimme – as I say – strength! 

Highly amused, Madeley mocks the idea that the police would actually enter people’s homes to break up Christmas gatherings. Incredible that any radio or TV presenter (and he’s been both) should be so ignorant of even headline news – click here to read a top police officer warning about doing exactly that… 

Richard Madeley’s gushing endorsement of Boris is second only to the SNP gushers up here… Why are so many people incapable of believing that it is possible for politicians to “go rogue”?  Are they really so naïve that they think UK politicians are well-meaning and only care about our physical health? Gimme strength!   

In another [Anna Brees] interview on this blog, the expert doctor answered the question about why the media is not exposing the truth about this “crisis” by saying that they’ve been given “a script”.  Wrong.  I think everyone involved in this cover-up has been given a cheque.  Big money is responsible for this ongoing totalitarianism.  How else to explain the uniform response of Governments and media across the world, the continuing restrictions, the repeated threat of more lockdowns.  If you disagree, be sure to say so in the comments. You won’t convince me, but have a go if you must…

Key question:  why is there no massive fightback in Scotland as there is in England?  There have been thousands gathered in London to protest on more than one occasion, and groups organised such as the Keep Britain Free movement.  Nothing, though, specific to Scotland, as far as I know – although I did see the saltire flying in Trafalgar Square at those protests.  Still, nothing comparable on home soil. Are Scots quite happy to live in a police state? Really?  

Covid-19: Lockdown In Wales “Psychotic & Deranged” – Or the New Normal? 

Comment: 

Here’s one of the commentators underneath the above video on the YouTube platform…

“I think we should be looking for an insanity vaccine for the government because covid19 is not the threat to the people, government is.”

That was very strong stuff from Brendan O’Neill of Spiked Online – do you agree with him?   Is this how we are all going to be living from now on unless, as he says, we push back now?  Are YOU going to “push back”?  Break a rule?  Refuse to pay a fine? Risk imprisonment?  

Scotland’s Dictatorship – Latest: 5-Tier System Of Rules Set To Cause Chaos?

Comment:

As one commentator has written Boris introduced 3 tiers, so Nicola has to go better. You couldn’t make it up!

That’s one way of looking at it.  What do you think – do these tiers or levels make a jot of sense to you?   It seems to me, that this latest development in totalitarian rule is a recipe for disaster – just from a management point of view, never mind the continuing erosion of our civil liberties.  What do you think?
