The Prisoners

Source:: Wings Over Scotland The Prisoners You wouldn’t know it to watch the black-hole-scale mess our politicians are making of it, but the thing about Brexit is that it ISN’T an insoluble problem. That two of the supposed “partners” in the United Kingdom are being forced out of the EU against the will of their people is a political choice, not […] Read the full article:: Wings Over Scotland The Prisoners

How to make lemonade

Source:: Wings Over Scotland How to make lemonade The Scottish media have been proclaiming, and simultaneously praying for, an “SNP civil war” for longer than we can remember. (Usually alternated with furious stories about how the party is a “cult” which doesn’t allow internal dissent.) But there can be little credible dispute that it’s finally got one. The party has been deeply divided by […] Read the full article:: Wings Over Scotland How to make lemonade

Out of the quagmire

Source:: Wings Over Scotland Out of the quagmire UK politics is stuck fast in the mud, going nowhere, and the casualties are mounting. Whether on Brexit, independence or anything else, we’ve all become so dug-in to our positions that some people – naming no names – have forgotten where the battle lines are or what their political war was even about in the first place.

The Prime Minister is a lying idiot

Source:: Wings Over Scotland The Prime Minister is a lying idiot The extremely sharp and perceptive New Statesman writer Stephen Bush buries some of his political insight in a daily email newsletter (because, we assume, his fax machine doesn’t work, you can’t send telegrams any more and London flats don’t have enough room to keep a lot of messenger pigeons or let you send smoke signals).

Meanwhile in the Scottish media

Source:: Wings Over Scotland Meanwhile in the Scottish media Nicola Sturgeon attended a meeting of the SNP NEC yesterday. Or maybe she didn’t. One of these people/publications, inescapably, is flat-out lying to their readers about the event in question. Given the Scottish media’s ingrained habit of lying about pretty much everything almost all of the time, we honestly wouldn’t like to hazard a guess as […] Read the full article:: Wings Over Scotland Meanwhile in the Scottish media

The mess we’ve made

Source:: Wings Over Scotland The mess we’ve made Last night the UK government lost a vote which, while largely symbolic, was designed to hamper its ability to generate its finances in the event of a no-deal Brexit (and therefore to try to incentivise it to avoid a no-deal). A handful of Tory MPs voted for the motion, combining with the opposition to defeat the […] Read the full article:: Wings Over Scotland The mess we’ve made

Facing the wrong way

Source:: Wings Over Scotland Facing the wrong way Scottish Labour mounted another of their infamous stunt “protests” today, as always dutifully assisted and advertised by the Scottish media. STV reported it as an event organised by a small rail union – not the RMT or ASLEF, but the little-known Transport Salaried Staff Association – which would feature “other campaigners”, but in fact it […] Read the full article:: Wings Over Scotland Facing the wrong way
