Court case over suspension of Parliament a blatant attempt to block Brexit’

 


Pro Brexit protestors outside parliament accuse Remainer MPs of teason (picture RT)

In the wake of a bunch of offal scoffing, Buckie swilling, ginger whinger judges in Chilly Jocko Land declaring Boris Johnson’s suspension of parliament illegal (like its anything to do with them,) we have more totally disgusting, anti – democratic shenanigans from rabid remainers in politics and the media today.

The Edinburgh establishment have always taken themselves too seriously of course, they were even delusional enough to believe their little country could be an independent nation. In fact Scotland is such an economic basket case, with only 1/12th of the total UK population it accounts for around half the deficit. And yet three old drunks in an Edinburgh court are upset at suggestions their decision to try and jerk their paymasters strings is politically motivated. Of course it was politically motivated, while most Scottish people are fine, the Edinburgh political set are obsessive haters of all things British, particularly our wealth on which their little country is dependent.

However the Buckie – soaked Jocks have managed to cause some trouble in London as their outlandish and totally unconstitutional ruling has given rabid Remainers in London an opportunity to try again to deny the democratically expressed will of the people.

The ruling has now been used to mount a challenge to the legality of PM Boris Johnson’s decision to suspend Parliament in the UK’s top courts. The case is not about the constitution or whether prorogation is legal, (it is, and is the only way to end a parliamentary session,) it is fundamentally about a group of British MPs who are hoping that when they are thrown outr of office by voters disgusted at their self interested behaviour, they can step up to lucrative EU jobs. And they believe that by reversing the result of the 2016 EU referendum they will curry favour with the EU bureaucracy, a Brexit analyst has said.

Alastair Donald, associate director of the Academy of Ideas, believes the court case against Johnson’s prorogation shows that pro-EU MPs who are upset at the prospect of the UK leaving the bloc are desperate to thwart the “democratic decision” of the British people.

Donald is also a contributor for BrexitCentral, an organization that is “unapologetically optimistic” about a post-Brexit Britain. He hit out at the decision made by the Scottish Court of Session on Wednesday that ruled Johnson’s prorogation of Parliament was “unlawful.”

The three judges at Scotland’s highest court in Edinburgh who ruled that the prorogation of parliament on Monday night by Johnson was unconstitutional denied their ruling was politically motivated and claimed that is is unacceptable to suggest judges may be biased. One of the judges, Lord Brodie, told the court that the “tactic to frustrate parliament, could legitimately be established as unlawful.”

All three are however known to be sympathetoc to the Srty’s obsessive pursuite of independence. And the pro – independence mob in Edinburgh are as blinkers as the far left loonies of Corbyn’s Labour Party. It is as unlikely that they are as incapable of being unbiased on matters pertaining to the English parliament as tortoise is of of playing a violin.

Johnson should be worried about the ruling although the High Court in England has already ruled the issue is not a matter for the courts but for parliament. This usurpation of parliamentary power should also concern British society at large, Donald insisted, because the “democratic process is being ripped up in front of our eyes.”

Supreme Court On Scottish Independence

The UK’s Supreme Court, has ruled on the legal status of Scottish, that the Scottish Parliament does not have legal standing to demand the right to veto the EU Withdrawal Act.

The judgement specifically states that the Scottish Bill contravenes both the t he original devolution settlement, The Scotland Act,  and the Tory/DUP government’s recent European Union (Withdrawal) Act, which withdrew some devolved powers from the Scottish Parliament and returned them to Westminster. The Tory/DUP European Union (Withdrawal) Act Schedule 4 specified that it overruled the Scotland Act devolution settlement.


They can take our lives, but they’ll never take our deep fried Mars Bars (Picture: still from Braveheart – Wikimedia Commons)

You can read the full judgement, but the significant parts are paragraphss 47 to 65, which state clearly that neither the Scotland Act nor the Sewell Convention in any way limits the power of the UK Parliament to legislate for Scotland, even in devolved areas, without any need for consent from Scottish ministers or parliament. The justices specifically explain that London ministers have complete power under the Scotland Act, without needing consent from the Scottish Parliament or further endorsement from the Westminster parliament, to impose secondary legislation on Scotland.

The Supreme Court said in its press release for the media:

What is the effect of the UK Withdrawal Act on the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament in relation to the Scottish Bill? The UK Withdrawal Act is not a reserved matter but it is protected against modification under Schedule 4 [99]. Several provisions of the Scottish Bill in whole or in part amount to modifications of the UK Withdrawal Act. These are: section 2(2) [101]; section 5 [102]; section 7(2)(b) and 7(3) [103-104]; section 8(2) [105]; section 9A [106]; section 9B [107]; section 10(2), 10(3)(a) and 10(4)(a) [108-110]; section 11 [111-113]; section 13B, section 14, section 14A, section 15, section 16, section 19(1) and section 22 (to the extent that these provisions relate to section 11) [114-118, 120-121]; section 26A(6) [122]; and section 33 and Schedule 1 paragraphs 11(a) and 16 [123-124].

The judgement reaffirms Scotland’s colonial status and the London view that the Scotland Act did not recognise any inherent Scottish rights, but rather graciously handed down from above some powers that London may change at a whim, exactly as though Scotland were an English County Council. All of which was addressed in the independence referendum of 2014, when Scottish voters heard all the philosophical arguments for full independence, weighed these against the extent to which Scotland’s economy is dependent on England, and decisively rejected independence.

Taking all this into account, the part of the judgement which states that it was not in itself outside the remit of the Scottish Parliament to pass a bill which relates solely to the domestic effects of EU withdrawal, that is utterly irrelevant in the wider scheme of things.

Incidentally it is worth noting that all the hysterical lefties currently running round screeching Trump said he’s a nationalist, that means he’s a Nazi because Hitler was a National Socialist, Gertmany’s ‘far right’ AfD are Nazis because Hitler etc.,” or  “Italy’s ‘far right’ Lega are Nazis because …” and Sweden’s ‘far right’ Sweden Democrats blah blah, because nationalism is evil.” have never uttred a word against the far left neo-stalinists of The Scottish Nationalist Party. Just thought I’d mention that because recently I’d had some very amusing exchanges with liberals and lefties for pointing out that if you say all Nationalism is evil because Trump and Hitler are nationalists, then you are saying Gandhi and the Dalai Lama are evil because they are also nationalists.

Liberals and lefties don’t have very good literacy skills because they unanimously say, “But you can’t compare Gandhi to Hitler …”

I’m not comparing of course, I’m contrasting, in the hope (a forlorn hope in the case of brainwashed liberals and lefties perhaps, that readers who do not already understand that nationalism is not specifically about invading Poland or exerminating ethic minorities. Nationalist, like liberal, can only ever be loosely defined.

Why Does Scotland’s Mad Wee Hag Frighten The Establishment Parties

Nicola Sturgeon, The Mad Wee Hag who could destroy Britain if Miliband lets her (source)

Labour and the Conservatives are kakking themselves. For Miliband to be talking to the SNP, who hate the Labour Party as much as Labour hate ……… well everyone who is not Labour I suppose, must surely be an indication that yesterdays story of how UKIP are threatening to score surprise wins in northern industrial areas. Labour have some common policy areas with the SNP, but the fundamental difference on the future of the union ought to prevent any deal.

While the Lib Dems would seem like more comfortable bedmates for Labour, such is the irrational nature of the left wing mindset that most Labour supporters would rather get into bed with a Redback Spider than a Lib Dem.

For Cameron to be demonising Nicola Sturgeon, the SNP’s Mad Wee Hag, and in a sure sign of desperation asking the Conservative Party Official Necromancer to bring back John Major from the other side to warn that Scottish Nationalists are a bigger threat to civilization than a Walking Dead style zombie apocalypse, shows desperation bordering on panic.

Conservative leaning newspapers have taken to using dirty tactics to undermine the popularity of Scottish National Party leader Nicola Sturgeon.

The Mad Wee Hag (as we dubbed her) and jimmy krankie lookalike contest winner has even been awarded Britain’s top anti-establishment accolade by the Daily Mail newspaper, who branded her “the most dangerous woman in the country.”

The title of “most dangerous man in Britain” was once given to the late left-wing stalwart Tony Benn, who died last year.

London Mayor Boris Johnson used his Daily Telegraph column to call the SNP “lefties on steroids,” and at one point went fully biblical, saying “You wouldn’t get Herod to run a baby farm, would you?”

Piers Morgan described Sturgeon as a “diminutive but sharp-witted woman [who] has rampaged through the UK election campaign like a mini-Godzilla, breathing fire and brimstone.”

The Mail also headlined a story concerning Sturgeon “Little Miss McHypocrite,” while the Murdoch-owned Sun took off the Miley Cyrus song ‘Wrecking Ball’ to depict Sturgeon riding said demolition tool while clad in skimpy tartan.

Meanwhile, the supposedly left-leaning Mirror (trying to salvage one or two Labour seats in Scotland perhaps) said “She’s got a natty new wardrobe of suits with matching stilettos and confidence way beyond her abilities.”

So should you be afraid of The Mad Wee Hag. We say no, our CEO (Chief Ectoplasmic Officer) Jenny Greenteeth fears none. But if Miliband does a deal with the SNP he should fear a similar wipeout in England next time votes are cast to the one that awaits Scottish labour MPs on May 7. We don’t like traitors who do deals with England’s enemies.

NB in the celtic languages a Hag is a witch or wise woman, aka a kelda, cailleach, nix etc.

Scottish Referendum Vote Rigging Scandal Goes Mainstream

Just over a week ago we mentioned that the almost inevitable complaints about electoral fraud in the Scottish Independence Referendum were starting to emerge. There was plenty to arouse suspicion about the vote, not least the huge margin by which the No campaign won after waging the most inept election campaign ever and when the final opinion polls taken only a few days before the vote showed Yes and No almost inseaparable, momentum having been with the yes campaign for several months.

The Inevitable Claims That The Scottish Vote was Rigged Are Gathering Momentum

Still, I was happy the Scots were staying with us and so did not follow up on the early rumours. FFS, if the Scots had left the UK the price of Malt Whisky could have rocketed and Osborne might have decided deep fried Mars Bars are a luxury food and taxed them.

The story went quiet for a while but has now re-emerged in mainstream media, with American magazine Newsweek running a story about claims that thousands of uncounted yes votes have been found in a bin.

It’s no surprise that there are rumours of jiggery pokery when you consider what happening with referendums on EU integration in France, The Netherlands and Ireland and the hushed up allegations of widespread abuse of the postal votes system in British elections. There is now no such thing as a fair election in the free world, the war on democracy started with scaremongering propaganda and the invention of threats to national security but it looks as if there are no lenghs to which the establishment will not go to maintain control.

The powers that be were never going to allow the UK to break up, to do so would strengthen the claims of Catalonia and the Basque region in Spain, Corsica and the Languedoc in France and the Lombard League in Italy amonst others. Belgium would split in half and many other nation states would fragment.

The big push from the corporate / political complex is for ever bigger superstates, not the balkanisation of the entire planet. Civil disobedience is going to be the only answer.

The Inevitable Claims That The Scottish Vote was Rigged Are Gathering Momentum

No one on the Boggart Blog team or even at The Daily Stirrer actually expressed an opinion on which way we wanted the Scottish independence vote to go. That’s because none of us are Scottish and didn’t have a vote, nor did we have an opinion.

We all love Scotland for different reasons and would hate to see our countries divided but were all aware that whichever way it went would be divisive. And we were all aware that with the EU and USA absolutely dreading the break up of the UK there was no way the Yes campaign would be allowed to win. Even if the Scots had voted Yes, somehow the result would have been overturned (remember the Irish referendum on the Lisbon Treaty, which itself was just a rehash of the European Consitution thrown out by referendum in France and The Netherlands anyone?). Which explains why the No vote looks like it will turn out to be more divisive in the UK than a Yes vote might have been.

After Allegations Of Indyref vote fraud – Petitions gain traction for recount

Scots wha hae when votes were rigged

A petition demanding a recount in the Scottish independence referendum has been signed by over 150,000 people after videos purporting to show evidence of vote fraud went viral on the internet in the aftermath of last week’s referendum vote.

Several video clips appear to show sporadic examples of potential vote fraud, feeding into existing suspicions that the British establishment was prepared to go to any lengths to prevent Scotland from gaining independence from Westminster. After the alleged vote fraud videos went viral, online petitions popped up, with tens of thousands rushing to advocate a recount. Scroll to the bottom of this City AM page to see a video which shows several examples of alleged cheating

A change.org petition started by Scottish voters demands “a revote of the Scottish Referendum, counted by impartial international parties.” Can’t see them getting one but it indicates there is a lot of bitterness in the wake of the vote that will last for a long time.

The petition has been signed by nearly 90,000 individuals. A separate petition which demands an independent enquiry into vote fraud allegations has topped 62,000 signatures.

A comment posted by the person who started the petition, appealing for an end to the hate attacks, was posted on Facebook.

A personal word.
by Kirstie Keatings
Petition organiser

I would like to respectfully ask that people stop contacting me on my facebook regarding this petition just because they don’t agree with it. I am merely the one who started this petition, not the voice behind it. For that, you should look to the (currently) 81,000 signatories, as it would be nothing without them. If there is no truth to the evidence of vote rigging then you have nothing to fear, do you? Let democracy take its course and do not harass anyone to do with this petition or its subsequent groups and rallies.

WTF? What is happening to free speech in our country? Kirstie is right about the evidence or lack of, and she has a right to her opinion and to express it even if she is wrong about the vote rigging.

Global institutions and individuals including David Cameron, corporates and major banks pulled out all the stops to sow fear about independence after polls suggested it was moving towars a Yes vote. When George Osborne, Danny Alexander, Ed bollocks and Gordon Broon agree in their predictions of economic doom, it can’t get any more insane than that.

The elite onslaught against secession employed at least two strategies. The first involved threats and “for your own good” lectures. US Senator Mr. Magoo John McCain even sugggested that Scottish independence would help terrorists (what, by arming, funding and training them like the Obama administration has?)

The second strategy involved pleading and begging, which, of course, betrayed how truly fearful the West’s ruling class is of secession.

The threats that focused on the Scottish monetary system were particularly telling. The very last thing that govt’s in London, Brussels, or Washington, DC want to see is an established Western country secede from a monetary system and join another in an orderly fashion because if that happens it will allay fears about the Russian / Chinese / Iranian bit to replace the $US as the global reserve currency and encourage Eurozone nations to quit the European Single Currency system.
,
Political secession is bad enough and is a constant worry for the bureaucrats who run the EU which not only hopes to expand Europe into the middle east and north Africa (or create a superstate, Eurasia as George Orwell called it in ‘1984’) but also establish itself someday as a perpetual union governed by a totalitarian bureaucratic dictatorship with no Get Out Of Jail cards on the board. A successful withdrawal from a major global currency, even if to join the EU monetary system later, would imply that countries have monetary options other than being absorbed wholesale (and permanently) by the EU.

When we get a vote of an independent England I’m voting ‘Yes’ although I’d rather see us split four ways with Anglia, Mercia and Wessex becoming a federal province of Europe and The Danelaw joining an economic union with Scotland, Ireland, Denmark, Norway and Sweden. We might become an economic basket case but at least WE’D KNOW HOW TO THROW PARTY.

Independent Scotland To Lose Orkney, Shetland and Oil

I don’t know whether the post I link here is satire or some serious scaremongering promoted at the last minute by Nick Camerband in a last, desperate big to save The Union.

It amused me however.

Independent Scotland will lose Orkney and Shetland

Queen Margrethe II of Denmark revives claim of right under 500 year old Udal Law to reclaim sovereignty of Shetland and Orkney Isles.

AN INDEPENDENT Scotland will have to hand back Shetland and Orkney according to Denmark’s British Ambassador.

In partnership with Norway’s King Harald V, the Danish regent Queen Margrethe II intends reviving the ancient rites of Udal Law which were ratified by the Scottish parliament in 1567.

According to Udal law, the Scottish parliament is legally bound to return the islands to Norway upon repayment of the Kalmar Union dowry following the betrothal of Margaret of Denmark to King James III of Scotland in 1468.

The Danish Queen claims to have in her possession authenticated copies of the 1575-7 Orkney & Shetland Lawbooks which allow the islands to revert to their previous territorial possession under the Kalmar Union.

Every copy of these books were believed destroyed by an agent of the Scottish crown, Patrick Stuart, around 1579.

But acclaimed Danish historian Olaf Gerritupyeson discovered copies of the books in the Soviet wartime archives in Moscow.

He believes the Nazis looted the historical lawbooks after the occupation of Denmark by the Wehrmacht in 1940 … Continue reading (h/t Graham lear for this story

Well I called that one wrong (there’s a first time for everything). Last week I was speculating that with a couple of recent massive oil finds occurring in what would be their territorial waters, if Scotland voted Yes, the next step would be a big by Shetland for independence.

Scotland: Reconciliation or divorce, who knows

The polls all suggest it is too close to call, within the plus or minus3% margin of error pollsters like to allow. Have the scare tactics employed by The Three Stooges worked, has the suggestion that a nation as small as Scotland is doomed to economic decline and social decay stopped the momentum the Yes campaign had built up, or have Scots voters noticed that having populations between 5 and 10 million has not harmed Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Finland much while the world’s wealthiest nations (Monaco, Lichtenstein, Luxembourg, Bermuda, are a few examples) have populations of less than a million.

Strangely Alex Salmond has not made as much as he might have of this point, has he understood that if the Referendum goes for independence, his raison d’être is gone?

I’ve also seen infographics that show the ‘Yes’ vote strongest in the Glasgow area. Tales of the corruption and cronyism in local government throughout this solidly Labour region, and of a paedophile gangs scandal set to dwarf Rotherham and Rochdale simmering on a back burner.

It may be that is the Yes voters do actually scrape a wafer thin majority, it will be because of disillusionment with the out-of-touch elitism and politically correct authoritarianism of Westminster politics. Which would be the absolute worst possible reason for breaking the Union.

There is still a strong possibility however that come Friday morning Craig and Charlie, The Proclaimers will be singing:

Will Manchester follow Scotland in demanding independence?

Manchester Town Hall

It had to happen of course although I’m a tad surprised it wasn’t either Liverpool, Geordieland or the already semi – independent Peoples Republic Of South Yorkshire that became the first region to demand independence from the UK.

So far this blog has been silent on the Scottish referendum, none of us has a vote and we’re sure the Scots will not welcome our advice. We have in the past however expressed support for a version of devolution by blogging that the only real way to save the UK is for the rest of the country, the English regions, Scotland, Wales, Ulser and Kernow tojoin together and kick London out of Great Britain.

Don’t get me wrong, I love London. It’s bloody expensive though. You can buy a terraced house in Burnley for the price of a bagel in Chelsea.

The Manchester Evening News however has taken a different line and suggested Manchester can go it alone. feasible I suppose, I mean, what did Northamptonshire do for us? London forces up house prices in the rest of the country (except Burnley), Shropshire is … well it’s just there isn’t it, we don’t need it. Those celebrity cleaning ladies Aggie and Maggie or whatever would definitely say Shropshire is unnecessary clutter which should be binned and the all rest does not contribute much.

from The Manchester Evening News

As Scotland prepares to go to the polls, five separate reports have backed Greater Manchester breaking free from many of the strictures of Whitehall.

Greater Manchester’s economy is bigger than that of both Wales and Northern Ireland – and Manchester is the fastest growing city in the country.

More and more experts are now asking if it is now time for an independent Manchester.

As Scotland prepares to go to the polls, five separate reports have backed Greater Manchester breaking free from many of the strictures of Whitehall.

Phillip Blond, a key adviser to the Prime Minister, will step up that pressure next week.

He will say Manchester must be allowed control of ALL its public spending – from welfare to education, health to social care.

Whitehall doles out nearly three quarters of public cash in this country, yet Germany’s ministers control just a fifth of theirs. Why does London think it knows the affairs of Manchester so well – when Berlin reckons Munich or Frankfurt can decide for themselves?

The Cities Growth Commission, headed by Gatley-born economist Jim O’Neill, put it bluntly in its latest report earlier this week: London is holding Manchester back.

Can’t say I agree entirely, we’re not parochial at Boggart Blog so I’d keep Lancashire and the Lake District as it would be a pain in the arse having to go through passport control when I go to see my Dear Old Mum in Morecambe or my bother in Kendal. Otherwise it looks like a great idea.

As for the economy, well if we admit Lancashire to the republic there’s shitloads of oil under the Irish Sea in what would be our territorial waters although we might have to go to war with The Isle Of Man to secure our claim. And of course, we already export Uncle Joe’s Mintballs and Poole’s Pies to the world.

“Now they know they’ll be richer than Saudi Arabia we’re just a bit up shit creek. So we need you to lie back and think of England while Willie boy puts one in the oven. News of a Royal baby will surely unite Scots voters behind the Monarchy.”

Can’t see the Scots falling for it myself. With all that oil who needs a monarch. The ploy was so obvious Salmond was onto it before the cybersphere.

Secrets And Oil In Scottish Referendum Cover Up

massive oil find
Massive oil find off Scottish coast hushed-up until after independence referendum? (source)

Stumbled across this in a site titled Oil and Gas People dot com my peregrinations but the story seems to have cone viral around the Scottish diaspora since (not because) I mentioned it in Little Nicky Machiavelli. The Yes campaign, supporting a vote for full independence have latched onto it and are playing it for all it’s worth.(hence picture from Yes (Highlands) web site. Could the story be a game changer I wonder?

Speculation has been growing in the Oil Industry, the political circus and public bar debating chambers that there was more to the Prime Ministers recent secret visit to Shetland than has been released.

The Facebook page of YES Highlands and Islands has released an article that unfortunately we cannot link to but which was shared by thousands and entered the blogosphere through cut and paste. It reported:

David Cameron came to visit Shetland under the tightest secrecy ever seen in Shetland last week and the national press knew nothing about it. Nor the local press.

Mr Cameron came to Shetland to say absolutely nothing about anything and allowed the local media 6 minutes of questions – Which he did not answer.

Why the PM made a very rushed, and hugely expensive trip to the Shetland Oils, missing his cabinet meeting, and just making it back to Glasgow for the Games? The speculation in the industry is that there has been a huge oil find and this is not to be made public until after the Scottish independence vote next month.

Is there any substance in this rumour? We don’t actually know, but like Flight MH17 false flag story, the Syria gas attack story, the revelations that the US / EU sponsored rebellion in Syria would spill over into a wider conflict, the prediction that Ukraine’s coup d’etat would turn out to be another CIA regime change scandal and so much much more, the blogosphere has a mightily impressive record on getting things right, while tile aft er time the official propaganda so eagerly passed on by tax eaters and sucked up by authority worshippers has turned out to be a great big steaming pile of bullshit.

Is there more detail on this? Not yet, if there was it wouldn’t be secret. I did manage to find this however:
