Orangeism Is A Cult According To Tom Elliott

He made his remarks after Facebook the Social Networking site closed down a page used by Fermanagh Orangemen for breaking the websites terms and conditions of use.

David Cameron Treats Scotland Like Slovenia According To Jim Murphy

Jim Murphy the Shadow Defence Secretary has hit out at David Cameron he said“He’s got to engage a bit more in Scotland. He’s got to travel a few hundred miles north as well. He’s the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and he shouldn’t behave like a foreign visiting dignitary when he goes to Scotland, which is what the temptation is,” he said.
“He comes up and he stands in front of a British flag and a Scottish flag as if he is visiting Slovenia. Scotland is not bloody Slovenia.”

A spokesman for the First Minister said: “The Unionist parties are fighting each other like ferrets in a sack – no wonder support for independence is moving ahead in the polls.
“The Scottish government have no desire to intrude into the private grief of these London parties, who are losing the place and fast losing the constitutional debate in Scotland.”

Kelvin MacKenzie Has Yet Another Anti-Scottish Rant

Kelvin MacKenzie wrote in his Daily Mail column "That great lump of Scottish lard Alex Salmond - he's put on 20lb in the past five years - was claiming on the BBC news that a minute fall in unemployment over the Border was down to his policies.
"Has he been on the Charles Kennedy lotion? The fact that anybody is in work in Scotland is due almost entirely to the wealth created by clever and resourceful people in England."

The SNP Invest 70 Million Pounds In Green Energy

Alex Salmond says "I'm pleased to welcome the renewables industry to Scotland because we are a nation with considerable natural and human resources and the political will needed to deliver a green energy revolution that can build sustainable economic recovery and reduce Europe's carbon emissions
"The Scottish Parliament has condemned the UK Government's refusal to give unrestricted access to Scotland's £191 million Fossil Fuel Levy funds. Together with industry, we must and we will continue to press the Treasury to release these funds now due to Scotland. They remain vital for the development of offshore wind and marine power, for heat networks and technology to deliver our renewable heat targets; and vital too for our communities, so they can invest in and benefit from the green economy
"However, the offshore wind industry is seeking leadership and immediate support from government and the Scottish Government is determined to provide that, as we have done for the last three years. Today I am delighted to announce - and open for business - Scotland's £70 million National Renewables Infrastructure Fund. The fund covers infrastructure relating to manufacturing and test demonstration facilities
"Our National Renewables Infrastructure Plan has already established the most immediate needs. Together with Scottish Enterprise and Highlands & Islands Enterprise, we are determined to stimulate the market and act decisively to trigger vital capital investment and launch the next phase of Scotland's renewables revolution."

Is Murdo Fraser The Last Leader of The Scottish Tories?

Murdo Fraser plans to disband the Scottish Conservative Party should he become its leader next month.And to set up a new right wing party to replace it.The former Tory Scottish Secretary, Sir Malcolm Rifkind, described Mr Fraser's plans as "healthy" and "refreshing" and said his ideas should be given "serious consideration".
He said: "What is very, very healthy is that Murdo Fraser is not just raising this after he has been elected. He is saying if you want me as your leader this is the kind of way in which I wish to lead the centre-right cause in Scotland.
"He is saying this is not about one individual, this is an opportunity for the people who are Conservatives in Scotland to decide what is the future of the union and of centre-right politics.
"He is offering a very refreshing new start."
A separate party for a separate country is the conclusion that some will draw. Michael Forsyth, who served as Scottish Secretary from 1995 to 1997, argued: "I think the strategy is one of appeasement of the nationalists and I think it is one that will fail. Any policy which appeases nationalists is damaging to the union by definition."

In January this year Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords survived a attack from a man armed with a similar type of weapon. Six other people were not so lucky. Including a federal Judge John Rolls. Yet the Republican Party in Congresswoman Giffords district consider this gun a worthy prize in a raffle. Yes for $10 you can purchase a ticket in this prize draw. The GOP in Giffords' home district is "showing a shocking lack of judgment and sensitivity," Jeff Rogers, chairman of the Pima County Democratic Party, said Thursday. "The wounds are still healing (from the shooting), and this is like pulling a scab off a wound."
