Smith Commission: ‘More powers’ vow delivered – Claims David Cameron


First Minister Nicola Sturgeon shakes hands with Prime Minister David Cameron at the Scottish Parliament

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon shakes hands with Prime Minister David Cameron at the Scottish Parliament

By @ShaunyNews Via: http://www.scotsman.com/news/politics/top-stories/smith-commission-more-powers-vow-delivered-pm-1-3669009

Watered down ‘Edinburgh Agreement’ via the Smith Commission hailed by David Cameron as ‘Fair’ smacks of a liar and a cheat. For a second lets look to the ‘no voters’ in last years Referendum vote for Scottish Independence. People who voted no did so in the belief that a no vote would bring ‘Home Rule’ and a 99% free Scotland. Looking back as we now do we see that it was panic stations by David Cameron but for me the worst culprit in all of this was Ex Prime Minister and Labour Leader Gordon Brown. He stood there on live TV and promised the Scottish populous the Earth then he retired for a nice job working in the European parliament with his Wife. Mr Brown’s house is almost visible from my front door, just over the forth road bridge, he lied, he panicked the over 65’s into voting no, it was this age group in the end that made it a no vote, the irony in all this was in 1979 there was a referendum that Scotland actually won to be free but it never happened on some technicality. In the 1979 devolution referendum 52% of voters said YES as did 43 to 19 Scottish MP’s, The Labour Party said NO, by imposing an unheard of and made up on the spot ‘undemocratic 40% rule’. so back in 1979 Scotland Voted yes with promises as was in 2014 said, nothing was given in 1979, the age group that let us down in 1979 or the people who voted yes or no and seen the lies and betrayal are NOW the over 65’s in Scotland, ironic the generation of people who had lived the lie before, fell for the lies twice. Thankfully in a few years there 100% WILL be another Referendum or Scotland via the SNP with Plaid Cymru and the Green party could join Labour in Westminster for a 4 party coalition. If you don’t know the UK has a 2 party coalition Government at present with the Tory party and Liberal party. The Conservatives won 36% of the vote, Labour 29% and the Lib Dems 23%, They have 306 MPs – they needed 326 for a majority so it was a decision in the end by the Liberal Democrats to use their 23% to add to the Tory 36% and together get a 2 party Government over the line with over 326 seats at Westminster in the 2006 federal election as a minority government, so could we see an SNP/Plaid Cymru/Green Party holding up a minority Labour Westminster Government that will deliver the ‘Edinburgh Agreement’ and the ‘Vow’ AND MORE!! I say why not!

~~

DAVID Cameron pledged to press ahead with his plans to strip ­powers from Scottish MPs when he came to Scotland to say his pre-­referendum vow on more powers for Holyrood had been delivered.

The Prime Minister said the pro-UK parties’ promise to strengthen the Scottish Parliament had been kept when the UK government yesterday published draft legislation to transfer new powers north of the Border. On a visit to Edinburgh, Mr Cameron said the new powers were “the right resting place” for devolution but added there would be no let-up on his plans to prevent Scottish MPs from voting on English matters at Westminster. The UK government Command Paper, containing 44 draft clauses, was published ahead of its Burns Night deadline and is a key milestone in the fulfilment of the “more powers” vow made by the leaders of all the pro-Union parties in the dying days of last year’s referendum ­campaign.

However, First Minister Nicola ­Sturgeon claimed the draft clauses had been “significantly watered down” from the proposals originally agreed by the Smith Commission, set up to consider new powers for Holyrood after last year’s ­independence referendum. Ms Sturgeon said: “Too much of what the Prime Minister has set out imposes restrictions on the recommended ­devolved powers and would hand a veto to UK ministers in key areas.”

The document, entitled Scotland in the United Kingdom – An enduring settlement, set out the “more powers” package arrived at by the Smith Commission last year. The package, signed off by all Scotland’s main parties, included the ability for Scotland to vary income tax bands and rates, further borrowing powers, control of air passenger duty and control over £2.5 billion worth of welfare. The prospect of a more powerful Scottish Parliament has seen Mr Cameron promise to resolve the “West Lothian Question” – the anomaly whereby Scottish MPs vote on areas reserved to Westminster such as health and education even though they do not affect their constituents.

Mr Cameron underlined his commitment to “English Votes for English Laws” (Evel) yesterday after Ms Sturgeon said this week that SNP MPs would begin to vote on English matters.

Ms Sturgeon said SNP MPs would abandon their policy of not voting on English health ­because NHS funding south of the Border had an impact on Scotland’s budget.

The Prime Minister said Ms Sturgeon was “wrong” to argue that MPs from Scotland should be able to vote on English health and education.

Mr Cameron said: “If I win the election, the government I lead will put in place the measures necessary to make sure that key element of English Votes for English Laws is delivered. “On [that] issue, I have been very clear. I think it is only fair as a Westminster Member of Parliament, I don’t have the ability to vote on Scottish health or education or Scottish housing. “I don’t see why in the future that SNP members, or indeed Labour, Liberal or Conservative members or Alex Salmond himself, should be able to come to Westminster and have a decisive say in English or Welsh education, health service or other ­issues. “So if I am your Prime Minister after 7 May, you will get in full these measures set out in this document, in a bill in the first Queen’s Speech of a government I lead. But there will also be very clearly set-out rules put in place so that English MPs have the decisive say on issues that only affect England. I think that is fair and right.”

As soon as the draft legislation was published, the SNP went on the offensive, claiming that the proposals were watered down and gave UK ministers a veto over welfare powers that were supposed to be devolved.

The UK government denied Ms Sturgeon’s claims, while Mr Cameron called on the SNP to start talking about how Scotland’s new powers can be used to improve schools and ­hospitals.

Mr Cameron said: “From my point of view this is the right resting place, we have now got a very strong Scottish Parliament raising the majority of its ­revenue. “There are more powers than most other devolved parliaments in the developed world. I certainly don’t want to spend the next five years debating, is that the right balance of powers. “Of course, some people will argue that there needs to be more changes. The SNP are already doing that. Of course they were never going to accept Smith as an outcome, because they want to break up the United Kingdom. “That is their prerogative, but we have demonstrated through a referendum that is not the will of the Scottish people.”

Ms Sturgeon claimed a clause dealing with the Universal Credit payment, the UK welfare reform that has seen the merger of several benefits into a single payment, amounted to a UK government veto. Although Universal Credit remains reserved to Westminster, under Smith’s package Scottish ministers are to be given the power to vary some of benefits within it. The clause said Scottish ministers should consult the Scottish secretary about making changes to Universal Credit and that the secretary of state should also give agreement about when a change should start.

Ms Sturgeon claimed that the welfare provisions did not enable the Scottish Parliament to create new benefit entitlements across devolved areas and required the approval of UK ministers for any changes to Universal Credit – including action needed to end the so-called ‘bedroom tax’. Ms Sturgeon said: “The proposals on welfare do not allow us to vary Universal Credit without the permission of the UK government. That means we will not have the independence to take action to abolish the bedroom tax. “At the same time, the power to create new benefit entitlements in any devolved area has simply not been delivered, while the Command Paper makes clear that, pending devolution of disability support, the roll-out of personal independence payments and the cut to spending on disability benefits will ­continue.”

Scottish Secretary Alistair Carmichael denied Ms Sturgeon’s claims. He claimed the clause in question had been inserted to ensure that there would be “consultation” between the two governments and added that “consent would not be unreasonably withheld”. He said: “It is going to be more important than ever that Scotland’s two governments are able to work together in a mature, co-operative and collaborative way. “It would be refreshing if instead of trying to kick up dust, the Nationalists would tell us what they want to do with the ­powers.”

Salmond convinced of second referendum vote


Scotland's former First Minister Alex Salmond

Scotland’s former First Minister Alex Salmond

 By @ShaunyGibson – Used to be @ ShaunyNews – Via: http://www.itv.com/news/2014-12-20/salmond-convinced-of-second-referendum-vote/

The article I did below this one https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/12/20/alex-salmond-hints-at-westminster-snpred-tory-vote-deal/ leads me to believe what I have all along. Alex has something on the Tory Party. Be it the ‘Edinburgh Agreement’ or the ‘Vow’ or something more sinister? 😉 Watch this space people. Another Referendum is coming sooner rather than later. I think this is breaking news, only ITV are showing so far

Alex Salmond has admitted today that he has not given up on his ambition for an independent Scotland and said he believes there will be another referendum vote in his lifetime. Scotland’s former first minister told The Times (£) if England votes in future to remove the UK from the European Union then that will be the “tipping point” at which Scotland will push for another independence vote. He said: “If you believe there are four equal nations, partners in this United Kingdom, then it seems reasonable that no one country should be dragged out of the European firmament against its will.”

Salmond, who stepped down following the yes campaign’s referendum loss also remained positive that should there be another independence vote this time the outcome would be different and told The Times (£) “I think we would win if there was another referendum.” He added: “Luckily in life, as in politics, people sometimes get a second chance.”

Alex Salmond hints at Westminster SNP/Red Tory vote deal


He knows what he is doing

He knows what he is doing

By @ShaunyGibson – Used to be @ ShaunyNews – Via http://www.scotsman.com/news/uk/alex-salmond-hints-at-labour-vote-deal-1-3638768

The media will spin this all ways and try to confuse us Scotland, we must not be confused. In the 2015 UK General Elections the SNP could give Labour UK control. Now many will say “Selling our souls to the Devil” BUT, Labour are so desperate for control they will most likely give Scotland home rule for SNP backing. So we ask is an “SNP/Labour” controlled Britain is the best interests of Scotland? I say no, BUT we must understand Alex will almost free us by doing so thus leading to a new referendum. I ask would you rather have this or a Tory/UKIP Britain? What do you think? Should the SNP use their support with Welsh Nationalists Plaid Cymru and the Greens to help a Labour Government into power in the UK, but Alex will only deal if we get Home rule and better deals for Scotland. I said many times “Watch this space” And this is the space. There is a LOT more to come here. But the SNP could get a new Referendum with PROMISES with legally signed documents in the case of a no vote with the RED TORIES. 

Alex Salmond talks to Kirsty Wark on Newsnight

ALEX SALMOND has been accused of “abandoning his principles” after indicating the SNP is ready to start voting on English-only issues at Westminster. The former first minister, who is in the running for a Commons return next May, has suggested SNP MPs could make the move in order to prop up a Labour government – and win concessions on more powers for Scotland. The SNP is riding high in the polls in Scotland, which suggest they could win 20 to 30 of 59 Commons seats north of the Border in May’s vote.  But the move has come under fire from Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie, whose party are desperate to hold on to the Gordon seat which Mr Salmond is contesting. Mr Rennie said: “For years the SNP have taken a principled position that they should not vote on English issues in the House of Commons. “Now that they can see party advantage, they are prepared to abandon their strongly held principle. “The people of Gordon will see Alex Salmond posturing for his party’s gain instead of standing up for local people.”

SNP MPs have generally abstained from voting on areas which are devolved to the Scottish Parliament like health and education, although they have done so when there is seen to be a potential funding knock-on for Scotland. But the former first minister has suggested the SNP could in the future shift to a position of voting on English-only legislation.

Mr Salmond pointed to two pieces of legislation not directly affecting Scotland which he opposed when he was an MP, namely the introduction of foundation hospitals and tuition fees. He said: “There will be many things that come across the Westminster desk that would be of little moment to Scottish people, but will be of great moment to the government of the day.” Mr Salmond said he would “lay odds” on a balanced Parliament, also known as a hung parliament, which occurs when no party secures an absolute majority of seats. “That’s an opportunity to have delivered to Scotland what we have been promised,” he said.

The former SNP leader has already made it clear that he believes the “more powers deal” for Scotland set out in the Smith Commission agreement sells the country short of what was promised during the referendum. A strong SNP group, holding the balance of power at Westminster, would attempt to win additional powers for Scotland, particularly on welfare and corporation tax.

Mr Salmond has also pledged that the SNP would bring its influence to bear to end the climate of austerity, with both Labour and the Tories warning of more cuts in the years ahead. Nationalists also believe that a strong group of MPs could help bring about a nuclear-free Scotland by forcing Labour into a U-turn on the renewal of the Clyde-based Trident deterrent. But their influence would be severely limited if they were prevented from voting on English-only issues, which would also include most justice and transport issues.

The SNP also plans to join forces with Welsh Nationalists Plaid Cymru and the Greens in a “progressive” alliance. But the SNP would only deal with Labour, not the Tories – most probably in an informal “confidence and supply” arrangement. Nicola Sturgeon has formally ruled out putting the Conservatives back into power at Westminster. Last month, Mr Salmond formally stepped down as SNP leader and first minister following September’s independence referendum result.

He announced earlier this month his bid to return to Westminster and was unveiled as a candidate for the SNP nomination for the Gordon constituency in Aberdeenshire.

Mr Salmond hopes to steal the seat from the Liberal Democrats, with current Lib Dem MP Sir Malcolm Bruce retiring in May after 32 years as the constituency’s MP. The former first minister said a “barrel-load” of SNP MPs would win seats at the 2015 general election. The SNP – and other pro-independence parties like the Greens – have been riding high in the polls since the referendum defeat.

A YouGov poll last weekend put support for the SNP at 47 per cent – up 27 per cent on the 2010 result – while Labour is 20 points behind on 27 per cent. It also put support for the Tories at 16 per cent while the Lib Dems, who hold the Gordon seat Mr Salmond is contesting, appear to be facing another election wipeout on just 3 per cent. The same poll also asked people in Scotland about their view of the Smith Commission proposals and found that 51 per cent of people thought that they failed to go far enough, 23 per cent of people thought it got the balance right and 14 per cent of people thought they went too far. And the poll put support for independence ahead at 47 per cent, to 45 per cent opposed.

At Westminster, Labour and the Tories have been neck and neck in the polls in recent months, with neither yet appearing to command the support to form a majority in May. Labour is five points ahead on 35 per cent in the latest YouGov poll, with the Tories on 30 per cent, but the Ipsos Mori organisation has David Cameron’s party four points ahead, on 33 per cent, with Labour on 29.

An SNP spokeswoman last night said: “SNP MPs voted against foundation hospitals in England and top-up tuition fees south of the Border over ten years ago because of the negative financial consequences for Scotland of these developments. “Replacing public spending with private money in England’s health and education sectors squeezes the resources available to Scotland through the working of the Barnett Formula.”

Project fear: Queen’s ‘foreboding’ Scottish independence plea strategically crafted by Whitehall


Britain's Queen Elizabeth

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth

By @ShaunyGibson – Used to be @ ShaunyNews Via: http://rt.com/uk/215307-queen-intervened-scottish-independence/

Surprised? I ain’t. We seen Gordon Brown fool us then retire, we seen Johann Lamont the then Labour leader fool us only to retreat and stand down, she knew she did bad for Scotland. We had so many people telling is it wouldn’t work. David Cameron said “I will not debate with Alex Salmond” but came up to Scotland with a ton of Tory English people to fill a room and beg Scotland to vote ‘NO’ Knowing his and many of his friends jobs would go. So I am not surprised at this. Alex Salmond had no chance looking back but today we have Nicola Sturgeon who actually just refused to pay Scotland’s share to keep the Queen! It is my 2nd link below.  For the record here is all I wrote about the 2014 Scottish Referendum vote:

It REALLY was this crazy!

It REALLY was this crazy!

https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/?s=Scottish+Referendum

https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/?s=Nicola+Sturgeon

Downing Street and senior civil servants were so fearful that Scotland’s independence referendum could have sparked the breakup of the UK that they requested the Queen to publicly intervene in the closing days of the campaign, a Whitehall source says. The intervention by Queen Elizabeth II, 88, was scrupulously crafted by her private secretary and Britain’s chief civil servant, a Guardian report revealed Wednesday. The delicately worded plea was constructed in the final phase of the Scottish independence campaign, as Downing Street faced what a senior Whitehall source told the paper was a “meltdown.” Fears ran high in Westminster as polls revealed amplifying support for the pro-independence camp, the source said.

Behind-the-scenes discussions between Britain’s Cabinet Secretary Sir Jeremy Heywood and the Queen’s private secretary Sir Christopher Geidt led to the Queen’s rare public plea, the Guardian reports. Four days prior to the September 18 referendum, the influential Monarch pleaded with Scots to “think very carefully” on their way to the ballot box.

A high-level Whitehall source who spoke exclusively to the paper said the government hoped the tense negotiations that preceded the Queen’s cautionary words would serve as a warning to Scots they faced a decision “filled with foreboding.” The Whitehall official’s disclosure echoed criticism directed at the British establishment regarding“Project Fear,” as it was dubbed by advocates of Scottish independence. The strategic project was characterized by a ferocious media campaign, and relentless fearmongering stemming from the City of London and Westminster’s political elite. But few expected its tendrils to infiltrate Buckingham Palace.

As the Scottish independence campaign drew to a close, the Queen’s unusual disclosure came as a surprise to many who noted her mostly impartial 62-year reign. Referencing the prospect of Scottish independence while addressing a well-wisher after Sunday service near her historic Balmoral estate in northwest Scotland, the Queen said: “Well, I hope people will think very carefully about the future.”

A seamless design

The strategic intervention was concocted by senior civil servants following Prime Minister David Cameron’s growing concerns the pro-independence Yes camp were gaining an ominous degree of ground in the final stretch of the campaign. As the countdown to the referendum progressed, Whitehall figures allegedly told Buckingham Palace that a few careful words offered by the Queen would help matters.

Prime Minister of Britain David Cameron

Prime Minister of Britain David Cameron

As part of this plan, Geidt and Heywood are thought to have devised the phrase she later uttered. While shrouded in a veil of neutrality, the words ultimately indicate the Queen’s support for the union. The Guardian’s Whitehall source told the paper the intervention was meticulously calibrated.

“She knew exactly what she was doing, which is, there are two possible responses on the referendum. Either one, you buy into this is a fantastic festival of democracy, or two, you suggest this is a decision filled with foreboding.” “So by saying I hope people will think carefully you imply the second … Without her taking a side, it cast just the right element of doubt over the nature of the decision.”

Advocates of Scottish independence claim “Project Fear” was a scrupulously designed establishment scheme created to ensure the union remained intact. Whether the Queen’s intervention was an explicit extension of this pro-union strategy is a matter of conjecture. But the possibility has not been ruled out. The No campaign’s relentless forecasts of economic peril, dwindling national security, an EU membership in jeopardy, and ruptured NATO relations ultimately overpowered the pro-independence movement’s messages of positivity, hope and empowerment. Many argue “Project Fear” was central to this.

In the wake of a referendum that almost terminated a 307-year-old political union, Westminster still faces many challenges. The Yes campaign’s vision of Scotland as a Scandinavian-style state characterized by inclusivity, egalitarianism, nuclear disarmament and clean energy has been denounced by critics as utopian. However, an appetite for independence remains rife across many parts of Scotland and is unlikely to wane. Buckingham Palace declined to comment on Geidt and Heywood’s alleged discussions concerning the Queen’s intervention.

A Cabinet Office spokeswoman also declined to comment, emphasizing the body does not publicly discuss correspondence “between the Queen’s private secretary and civil servants.”

Allegedly – Alex Salmond threatens Westminster with a new referendum


alex_salmond_scottish_ind-456738

By @ShaunyGibson – Used to be @ ShaunyNews Via Sources

Allegedly: Alex Salmond has threatened Westminster with a new referendum due to the lack of action on the VOW made by the 3 Leaders. I am hearing he made the remark on TV this morning. The ‘Edinburgh Agreement’ and the ‘Vow’ have not been given in full and Alex has said a few times “Scotland will get what Scotland was promised” I have said many times that Alex said before the Referendum he said “I will not resign yes or no” So he is on record saying this.

Video and article here: http://www.scotsman.com/news/politics/top-stories/alex-salmond-won-t-step-down-in-event-of-no-vote-1-3531594

http://www.ft.com/cms/s/2/904dc914-34d4-11e4-ba5d-00144feabdc0.html#axzz3LseN2Frt

So we must now ask ‘Why did he step down’ He stepped down fairly early and I felt at the time and I am sure I wrote it here I thought Alex had ‘Something up his sleeve’ He stepped down and I and others said “He will go to Westminster” There was no inside knowledge per-say just reading into things I think a few of us picked up that Alex would indeed go to Westminster.

“I wrote this on  October 15th https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/10/15/scottish-referendum-debate-rages-on-as-alex-salmond-threatens-revenge/

Alex Salmond has hinted at another referendum on Scottish independence taking place as he threatened to exact “revenge” if pledges promised by the government are not fulfilled.”

It hit twitter about an hour ago, I am told Alex said this morning on TV or to someone “Due to Edinburgh Agreement and Vow not happening we could call a new Referendum” Now many of us have said this. I have said 2017 for a new referendum and that was an educated guess, but one many others are piecing together. There was a video from after the no vote where Alex threatens EXACTLY THIS.

I am, as we speak trying to find a link or the comment he has alleged to have said this morning. If not, he has said it no matter what. But more to come I guess. Alex didn’t resign as First Minister and go to Westminster for no reason, so lets see where this story goes today.

Alex Salmond and Andrew Marr – the next Scottish Referendum?
This was from early November when we all knew the Vow and Edinburgh Agreement were not going to happen

#Scotland – SNP support soars to record 47%


WE NEED TO KEEP THIS UP..WE CAN 'WALK' FROM THIS UNION

WE NEED TO KEEP THIS UP..WE CAN ‘WALK’ FROM THIS UNION

By @ShaunyGibson – Used to be @ ShaunyNews

Just can’t fault the SNP and Yes supporters since September 18th this year, we look back to the 19th, the ‘People’ who won wrecked cities, beat people up and caused a lot of damage, these were the winners the loyalists! http://shaunynews.com/2014/11/01/scottish-loyalist-childrens-home-worker-arrested-after-making-nazi-salute-amid/ & https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/?s=Unionists+

These are all the pre and after articles, the headlines are all you need to remind you Scotland because I will be one of thousands reminding you ! https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/?s=Referendum Check some of the headlines, HOW STUPID WERE SOME OF US? Really, if YOU voted no, please just read the headlines here. We can’t be stupid and fooled a 3rd time can we? 1979/2014/??

Through thoughts of cheating and more we stopped and started to do it correctly. We stopped moaning, we stopped complaining, we embraced Nicola and wished Alex well in London where he will fight our cause. Scotland you amaze me, you/we just got back up and started to gather momentum like never before. Membership is as high as it has ever been with JUST SCOTTISH MEMBERS OF THE SNP making the SNP the 3rd biggest party in the whole of Britian, astonishing when you think about it, polls suggest Labour could have as low as 4 seats in Hollyrood.  The SNP figures are climbing, where will we be come General Election time in a few months we can only speculate as being ‘Very Good’ Labour making Jim Murphy leader of Scottish Labour has totally ruined them, and there wasn’t much more to ruin to be fair. Come on Yes supporters, lets get going now! A New Referendum I believe can be as early as 2017, but Scotland we must vote. I said pre-September 18th if we vote with ‘Selfishness’ We would lose, this is exactly what happened. Don’t fall for it again.

Suggested Poll as of today Via http://www.electoralcalculus.co.uk/homepage.html
SNP —– 48

LAB —– 11

CON —- 0

LIB —– 0

Support for the SNP in Scotland has surged to record levels and a majority now back independence, a poll suggests.

Some 47% of people in Scotland intend to vote SNP at the general election, against 27% who will vote Labour, 16% who will vote Conservative and just 3% backing the Lib Dems, a YouGov poll for the Sun found. The SNP’s support is 4% higher than the last YouGov poll and up 27% on its 2010 figure. The results – released on the day Scottish Labour elected MP Jim Murphy as its new leader – would see Labour’s Scottish representation in Westminster reduced from 41 to just seven.

Meanwhile, 52% would back independence, once undecided and abstaining voters are excluded, amid widespread scepticism about the latest devolution offering. Some 51% said the powers in the Smith Commission on devolution do not go far enough, against 23% who said the balance is right and 14% who said it goes too far. YouGov chairman Peter Kellner told the Sun: “This looks like something bigger and longer lasting than a post- referendum blip.

SNP depute leader Stewart Hosie MP said: “I congratulate both Jim Murphy and Kezia Dugdale on their election to leader and deputy leader. “Jim Murphy takes over just as the scale of their problems are laid bare in the new YouGov poll – showing record levels of support for the SNP for next year’s general election. “Mr Murphy spent two years campaigning side by side with the Tories in Scotland, and in that sense he is part of Labour’s problem in Scotland, not the solution. And his strong support for tuition fees puts him at marked variance with mainstream opinion in Scotland.

“Today’s poll also makes clear the scale of the disappointment that is felt across Scotland at the Westminster parties’ failure to meet people’s aspirations for more powers.

“It even indicates that Jim Murphy’s own seat would be vulnerable on these poll ratings.”

Just a few days ago Ireland (EIRE) became the 136th Country to recognise Palestine as the ‘STATE OF PALESTINE’ Ex Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond argued Scotland had the right to recognise Palestine even though part of the UK Political landscape. Many have said and done a lot about Palestine. I have done as much as I can, but I will do more, make no mistake, there is no WAR in Palestine with Israel, this is Genocide, murder! https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/?s=Palestine

Looking back on Scotland’s ‘No Vote’ – Why?


English people pretending to be Scottish

English people pretending to be Scottish

By @ShaunyGibson – Used to be @ ShaunyNews

Looking back on the whole year we all wrote, read and tried to free Scotland from a Union we still could and can leave within a few years, it makes me sad. I done so many articles, Audio blogs and said “VOTE FOR SELFISH REASONS WE WILL LOSE” This is EXACTLY what happened peeps https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/07/13/why-we-cant-be-selfish-in-this-vote-scotland/ Some of us fell for the BBC Lies, the lies about Banks, banks who never actually said these things same as the Oil industry, the BBC tricked us, yet people STILL watch the BBC and pay a TV Licence. Some fell for Gordon Brown’s promises, yeah the same Gordon Brown who has retired a Multi-millionaire not a million miles from me to live his life in utter riches, same as Johann Lamont who after the no vote ran for the hills KNOWING she did wrong and to be fair her conscience got the best of her. Some believed DAVID CAMERON AND ED MILIBAND!  And most of the %’s of people who votes no were lied to in 1979 when we actually freed ourselves but were not allowed to leave. I still shake my head at the selfish people who voted no. Tommy Sheridan is a man I still have TONS of respect for, he did a talk almost every night for 130 days, in the end his voice gave way. I feel for everyone who pushed the Yes vote hard. But listen, we vote SNP next year! We can be free. SCOTLAND, DO NOT FALL FOR THE LIES AGAIN, PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are nearing an election, so I thought I would start the ball rolling

Alex Salmond Will Donate ALL Pay If Elected As MP – A TRUE STATESMAN


 Salmond To Run For Westminster Seat

Alex To Run For Westminster Seat

By @ShaunyGibson – Used to be @ ShaunyNews

https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/12/06/breaking-salmond-im-standing-for-westminster/ < The news we ALL wanted 

Then there was Nicola Sturgeon refusing to pay for Royalty https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/12/08/nicola-sturgeon-refuses-to-pay-the-queen-go-on-nicola/

I did an article yesterday called 

ALEX SALMOND – 21ST CENTURY WILLIAM WALLACE

https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/12/07/alex-salmond-21st-century-william-wallace/

What can be said about Alex. I called him the 21st Century William Wallace. I told you Alex would run in Westminster as I had been told. Alex said MANY TIMES he would NOT RESIGN regardless of the Referendum result. Well we all know what happened that day. Back on the early 1990’s, and you can You Tube search this, Alex was on Question Time in London, a 40 year old guy saying “The 1979 election was fraudulent”

Infact here the video is:

 

Now I know deep inside the SNP they think the same. Only today we seen Nicola Sturgeon fire the first of many incoming political bombs to Westminster by refusing to subsidize the Royal Family in ANY WAY. https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/12/08/nicola-sturgeon-refuses-to-pay-the-queen-go-on-nicola/ I will say again, the SNP WILL FREE SCOTLAND WITHIN A FEW YEARS. They have the ammo, they have the will, they have the people behind them. I hope Alex is safe down in Westminster where he will be mocked, but he proved today where many/most politicians use the expenses in Whitehall and abuse them that he will give his money away, right away Alex has the moral high ground. I truly wish I could say more, we will be free, you will see.

Does this make anyone else sad or is it just me? I have grown to love Alex Salmond.

Former Scottish first minister Alex Salmond has said he will donate one of his salaries to charity if he is elected as an MP next May. The ex-SNP leader has formally announced that he will join the contest for the seat in the UK parliamentary constituency of Gordon. It is currently held by Sir Malcolm Bruce, the long-serving Liberal Democrat MP who is retiring in May 2015. Mr Salmond resigned as SNP leader and First Minister last month, having signalled his intention to do so just hours after the Yes campaign lost the independence referendum, and speculation over his political future has continued ever since. He is currently the MSP for the Aberdeenshire East constituency, which covers some of the same areas as the Gordon seat. If elected in May, he will also continue to serve at Holyrood

Mr Salmond set out his plans in a speech in Ellon, Aberdeenshire.

Alex set out his plans in a speech in Ellon, Aberdeenshire.

“If elected with a dual mandate for Holyrood and Westminster I will do as I have done previously and donate one of the salaries to support youth causes in the North East of Scotland.”  Mr Salmond told those gathered that he does not expect there to be an overall majority at the next election and that as a result, Scotland could emerge in a “commanding position”. He said that there is the “prospect of real power for Scotland” if the SNP wins a significant number of seats at Westminster. He added that if “real power” cannot be exerted, Scotland faces the “bleak prospect” of further austerity.

You just can't fault this man.

You just can’t fault this man.

“What has struck me more than anything else, is that in the weeks since the referendum the people of Scotland have refused to give up on the hope,” Mr Salmond said. “For those who voted Yes the referendum offered the possibility of real change. For many who voted No they insist on the vow being properly redeemed. “Therefore it is incumbent on all of us to step up to the plate – to match the spirit being shown by the people. Therefore I can tell the constituency today that I am a candidate for the SNP nomination for Gordon.”

The SNP, as laid out by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, would not deal with the Conservative party in “any shape or form”, he said. “There are other possibilities, and in these possibilities a strong group of SNP MPs will have the capacity to rumble up Westminster.” Mr Salmond said he had no intention of leading the SNP at Westminster and would continue to support Angus Robertson.
