I think many of us are unhappy at this, but I believe when Nicola and Alex say “Scotland will be Independent” They mean it as in “Soon” Alex said all along “I will not walk away from First leader regardless of the result” Then he walked away. Hmm. I think I see a cunning plan 😉 Watch this space folks. SNP have something up their sleeves

The commission recommended that the work programme, which helps jobseekers find and keep employment, should be transferred from Westminster to Holyrood when the current commercial arrangements expire. The Scottish Government said this should mean the transfer taking place in March 2016, but the UK Government has extended the contract by a year.

Scottish Skills Secretary Roseanna Cunningham accused the Westminster Government of “breath-taking arrogance”, and wrote to UK Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith to complain. The Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) said it was “utterly appalled” by the move to extend the contract. Scottish Secretary Alistair Carmichael said the decision was made in August, before the Smith Commission was set up.

Deputy First Minister John Swinney, giving evidence to Holyrood’s Devolution Committee, said Ms Cunningham’s remarks were “understandable and appropriate”. He said: “The Smith Commission recommended that on the completion of the work programme contracts, these should be devolved to the Scottish Parliament and that’s in the spring of 2016, and we’re now being advised, without our consent, that that’s been delayed a year in a process which is not yet complete. “What we get to in all of this analysis is the whole question of good faith. We need to get on in good faith and one of the things which I think undermines that good faith is seeing the goalposts being moved on an important issue the Smith Commission has judged upon.”

But earlier, the committee heard from Mr Carmichael, who said: “First of all, I think it is important to say that this was a decision taken in August, so some of the breathless commentary about this being ‘a dreadful decision that was designed to thwart the will of the Smith Commission’ is not justified because, frankly, this decision was taken long before the Smith Commission was even set up.” Lucy McTernan, deputy chief executive of SCVO, said: “We are utterly appalled by the UK Government’s move to extend its work programme contracts when it was agreed by the Smith Commission that it would transfer to the Scottish Parliament as soon as current contracts expired. “But our disappointment doesn’t lie so much in the almost immediate failure to keep to the agreement as in the fact that it’s impossible to justify why such a broken and failing system would ever be continued. “We’re completely dismayed by this delay in ridding Scotland of this exploitative, punitive and under-performing programme.”

SNP MSP Linda Fabiani, a member of the Devolution Committee, said that the sooner the programme is devolved, the sooner it can be “put right”. “Quite why the UK Government thinks it is acceptable to completely ignore the Smith Commission proposals and press ahead with its failed scheme is baffling,” she said. A spokesman for the Department for Work and Pensions said: “Unemployment in Scotland fell by 38,000 over the last year and our priority is to ensure as many people are helped into work as possible while fulfilling our commitment to the Smith Commission’s proposals on devolution. “Maintaining continuity of support is important. That is why we are allowing time for the powers to be devolved and for the Scottish Government to build its new programme to make sure long-term unemployed people get the help and support they need to find a job and have the security of a regular wage.”

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon met with Mr Carmichael today to discuss the issue. She said: “I stressed the need to make sure that the UK Government signs no new Work Programme contracts for Scotland as these powers are to be devolved under the Smith Commission recommendations. “It would not be fair or right that Scotland is tied into this programme longer than it needs to be. Mr Carmichael has pledged to speak to the Department of Work and Pensions on the issue, and they should now rethink their plans. “Westminster now needs to act to make sure plans for the transfer of the powers recommended for devolution by the Smith Commission are taken forward as soon as possible.”

The politicians also discussed extending the franchise to 16 and 17-year-olds for the next Scottish Parliament elections in 2016 after recommendations in the Smith Commission.

Salmond seeks minimum wage powers


A VERY CLEVER MAN ;-)

A VERY CLEVER MAN 😉

By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

The convention, announced today at the STUC’s Decent Work, Dignified Lives conference in Glasgow, is designed to provide leadership on Scottish industrial relations and promote the principles behind fair work. It will encourage dialogue between unions, employers, public sector bodies and government. The Scottish Government established the Working Together Review in February to examine how better working environments can be created for employees across the country.

Holyrood ministers said they will publish a full response to the review around the new year, but in the meantime they have submitted recommendations to the Smith Commission on Scottish devolution for the minimum wage to be decided by the Scottish Parliament. Speaking at the conference, Mr Salmond announced a further step in the Scottish Government’s commitment to a living wage. “The Fair Work Convention was a key recommendation of the Working Together Review,” he said. “Such is the importance of the review’s principles, I’m delighted to announce that we are making this important suggestion a reality, and strengthening our commitment to living wage policy and fair working conditions for all. “We will, of course, work closely with the STUC in establishing this body. The Fair Work Convention will provide leadership on industrial relations and encourage dialogue between unions, employers, public sector bodies and government. “One of the aims of the Fair Work convention will be to exert greater Scottish influence over the minimum wage; it will also champion other aspects of good industrial relations, including payment of the living wage. “It will be a powerful advocate of the partnership approach which characterises industrial relations in Scotland at their best – it will highlight the fact that business productivity goes hand in hand with proper pay for employees. “It will take forward the aims of this conference – decent pay and dignified lives – and the objective that I have pursued throughout my political career; the power to make that happen. Not just change in Scotland but change for Scots. “We must ensure that people are valued, rewarded, engaged in their work – and we must allow everyone to feel they have a stake in the success of their workplace, their community and their country. “The Scottish Government is working to build that sort of economy and that sort of society. After the energising process of the referendum Scotland will never be the same again – it will be better.”

But shadow Scottish secretary Margaret Curran hit out at the First Minister and said: “With each day that passes, Alex Salmond looks more and more like he is acting in bad faith. “People across Scotland voted to continue pooling and sharing resources across the whole of the United Kingdom. The First Minister needs to respect the sovereign will of the people of Scotland and ditch his suggestion of another referendum.” She argued having a national minimum wage across the whole of the UK “means that people in Scotland avoid a damaging race to the bottom”, with Ms Curran stating: “Scottish Labour will not devolve the minimum wage because it will make Scots worse off by opening up competition on pay and conditions between workers in Scotland and the rest of the UK. The interests of working people are not served by pitching one against the other.” She continued: “You can’t trust the SNP with the minimum wage. With a Labour government across the UK, we will increase the minimum wage to £8 an hour – far more than the SNP suggested during the referendum campaign. When the SNP had the chance to improve wages – by introducing the living wage for public contracts – they voted against it. “Scottish Labour wants powers for a purpose, backed up by pooling and sharing resources across the UK. That means extensive new powers over tax, welfare and jobs which will give us a powerhouse Parliament able to make a real difference to the lives of people across Scotland.”

Scotland’s Labour Leader Johann Lamont’s Expenses Double That of SNP’s Alex Salmond

By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

Scotland’s Labour leader Johann Lamont spent £19,697 on bills including travel, hotels and office costs – double that of the country’s First Minister Alex Salmond.

According to government filings, the Scottish National Party’s (SNP) Alex Salmond claimed £9,691 (€12,301, $15,591) for expenses including travel, stationery, mobile phone charges and newspapers.

MSP expenses rose more than £12.5m in 2013 overall.

Conservative’s Ruth Davidson was the second biggest spender on the taxpayers account as a political party leader in Scotland after claiming £17,184 of travel, office and accommodation costs.

Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie claimed mainly for travel expenses, mounting up to £16,394.

Overall, Scottish politicians spent an extra £262,140 in the 2013-2014 tax year.

Party leader allowances fell but staff costs rose.

“The 2.14% rise in members’ expenses last year broadly reflects the effect of inflation on office costs and on staff salaries,” said a Scottish Parliament spokeswoman

Full Scottish Government Proposal PDF Form – For Westminster


Nicola’s first act is to pressure Westminster

Nicola’s first act is to pressure Westminster

By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

I am sure many have seen this full PDF Form. This is from the SNP at Hollyrood to Westminster. The credit goes to Nicola Sturgeon, and she doesn’t miss the mark. We were promised DevoMax that makes us 90% free from the Union, as yet it’s been too slow for everyone’s liking. So this is the ball starting to roll Scotland. Add to this Ruth Davidson being questioned by Police (Blog below this one) https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/10/11/police-question-ruth-davidson-over-postal-votes-reports/ is proof that indeed nobody is sitting on their hands doing nothing. Hollyrood are demanding what was written into law in the event of a No vote and this is just the start. The police are well into the investigation of vote fraud or any kind of wrong doing in the Referendum. So, we are starting to see things happen now, watch this space I guess Scotland

Claims – SNP Membership Now at 100,000 Members


membershipfigs1 (1)

See my AMAZING Photoshop skills? 

I asked the question here, could we catch the Tory Party: https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/09/27/the45-imagine-70000-of-the-1-6m-people-who-votes-yes-paid-1-a-months-to-the-snp/

Sometimes people need a metaphorical kick in the arse to fully dedicate themselves to a cause; in this case, the failure of the referendum for Scotland’s independence would have been pretty much all they needed. Who says we don’t respect the decision? We just don’t believe that the British government will fulfill their end of the bargain, we just want to see a party that’ll actually push for the powers promised and that actually represents Scotland (as opposed to the Tories and Red Tories).

The SNP membership is up by 75,000 since the vote and already people across Scotland are planning for how we can obtain independence as quickly as possible. When 71% of teenagers vote yes, it is only a matter of time… and how. If anyone seriously believes this matter is finished, it isn’t far from it. The yes camp are more energised than ever and will make this happen with the help of the Tories down south who seem hell bent on helping us. The SNP are now the third biggest political party in the UK, and membership is still increasing at an encouraging rate. With Labour supporters burning their cards and the SNP’s membership rising exponentially, i think it is time that the press evaluated their response. The backlash from this could be immense in Scotland and would not be unjustified. In fact it appears that indyref has strengthened the SNP rather than weakened it. Labour are seen as traitors because they stood shoulder to shoulder with the Conservatives and the right wing press has ben vilified.

I heartily applaud Salmond for banning the ‘hunting down’ of ancient poll tax debts. The poll tax was one of the most badly designed and grossly unfair taxes ever to have been foisted on modern Scotland. Families on low income sway their local taxation double, treble, quadruple and so on – virtually overnight. Crucially the poll tax or community charge tax bore no relationship on people’s ability to pay. It was a Thatcherite tactic to cut taxes for the wealthy and further impoverish the poor. Many people simply could not afford to pay the tax, this was not helped by heavy charges being levied by councils for late payment. Some people refused to pay the tax on principle. The whole thing was an absolute unjust regressive farce.

Eck may be standing down in November, but I am enjoying the fact that he’s going out with a bang, and I’m sure he shall return to lead an increased SNP contingent to Westminster. And continue to be a fly in the ointment for the Unionist parties, whilst fighting Scotland’s corner.
Alex Salmond is showing he’s closer to the people of Scotland than any of his parliamentary opposition who should totally support him in drawing a line on a social experiment started in Scotland unsuccessfully and then in incredible folly, introduced into England where the good people killed it stone dead.

And Nicola Sturgeon in tacking IDS and Cameron this week over Universal Credit is indeed encouraging stuff, this bodes well for Sturgeon’s tenure as FM. She’s no afraid of those Thatcherites’ in Westminster! In fact in a new poll conducted by Panelbase, Salmond and Sturgeon, were the only two leaders of the political parties to score a positive rating – by far the most successful and longest lasting partnership in Scottish politics. A positive rating after seven years – remarkable.They did the impossible – transformed a small party into one with a majority in the Scottish parliament. Just shows there is another world outside where the sun shines and positive things happen.

Sturgeon trump card is not in any doubt


A year that will define a countries future

A year that will define a countries future

By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

HISTORY is written by the winners, according to the old truism.

Not the history of the independence referendum. Not so far, at least. The SNP has enjoyed considerable success in implanting its story of the campaign in the public consciousness while the winners have struggled to be heard. The Nationalist narrative is clear. The referendum has given life to a new age of democratic and political engagement in Scotland. Despite being pitted against the formidable apparatus of the British state, the Yes campaign came within a whisker of victory by giving voice to a clamour for radical change. It failed only because people were “tricked,” as First Minister Alex Salmond put it, by promises of more powers for Holyrood and frightened, the older generation especially, by Westminster’s scaremongering. A referendum process characterised by mature democratic debate, the argument goes, has empowered and enriched Scotland. The result was a bitter disappointment but the country has been transformed.

The No side sees it quite differently. In their narrative, a decisive majority of Scots rejected the SNP’s sketchy and implausible economic prospectus. Faced with a noisy and often intimidating Yes campaign, people across the country stoically endorsed the advantages of remaining in the UK. They saw through the Nationalists’ cynical and dishonest claims about threats to the NHS and fantastical claims about Scotland’s untapped oil wealth. They now want politicians on all sides to put the referendum behind them and get on with the business of running the country.

There are lots of reasons why the first version is taking root in people’s minds. Mr Salmond’s well-timed resignation announcement the afternoon after the night before has ensured the SNP has remained the story this week. Mr Salmond himself, his sure-fire successor Nicola Sturgeon and the candidates fighting to replace her as deputy leader have all used platforms to tell their story of the referendum.

No campaigners, meanwhile, vacated that particular field. David Cameron moved instantly from the referendum to fighting the looming General Election. His focus has been putting Labour on the spot by talking about English votes for English laws. Labour decamped to Manchester to indulge in its favourite conference-time activity: infighting. The party’s failure to secure a No vote in the heartlands of Glasgow, North Lanarkshire and West Dunbartonshire has sparked a bout of briefing against Johann Lamont’s leadership. It has also put Labour on the defensive. The main message from Margaret Curran MP, shadow secretary of state for Scotland, and others has been the need to reconnect with the large minority of Labour supporters who voted Yes.

The SNP’s success has put it on the front foot in the new debate about devolving more powers to Holyrood. Although Lord Smith of Kelvin’s commission was established to reconcile competing proposals from Labour, the Conservatives and the LibDems, it is the SNP’s demands which have grabbed the headlines. The details of a new Scotland Bill will not be known until the end of the year but Ms Sturgeon is already positioning herself to argue, as surely she will, that whatever emerges is wholly inadequate and a betrayal of voters who put their faith in the No parties’ home rule vows.

Astonishingly, then, the week after the referendum was lost and its leader resigned has proved a good one for the SNP. And that’s without mentioning the party’s membership has more than doubled.

It cannot last, the downcast winners are muttering with a shake of the head. Unionist MSPs believe the hangover will finally hit the Nats when they see there is no realistic possibility of a fresh referendum, when people embrace the new devolution package, and when those new SNP members turn out to be vanguards of the so-called “45” movement hellbent on dragging the party towards the electoral wastelands of the hard left. It sounds like wishful thinking. In a perfectly-pitched speech announcing her candidacy for the top job on Wednesday, Ms Sturgeon revealed an acute understanding of all those pressures. And her trump card was this: she left no-one in any doubt she actually wants to run the country, not just petition for independence. That should worry her opponents more than anything.”””

#The45 – Imagine 70,000 Of The 1.6M People Who Votes Yes Paid £1 a Months to the SNP!


70,000 votes behind the Tory Party!

70,000 votes behind the Tory Party! – Can we overtake them?

By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

I know this won’t happen, but imagine for a second 70,000 of the 1.6 million people who  voted yes went onto this site here https://my.snp.org/join and paid as little as £1 a month! Scotland if we become the UK’s second biggest party I think we can walk out of the Union. Now I am no expert but if a Scottish ONLY party were the 2nd in Britain ahead of UKIP (THEY ARE DANGEROUS) Liberal Democrats and Conservative parties, I am sure we could leave the Union or at least call for another Referendum, a fairer one this time. Media keeps saying that “HUGE 10% LEAD THE NO CAMP GOT” In reality it’s only 5%. Take that 5% and move it to yes, we are a free country perhaps, so don’t be fooled by the media playing this like an overwhelming win for Yes. 80% No to 20% Yes would have been a HUGE LEAD!

HOW EASY IT IS… CAN WE DO IT?

CAN WE DO THIS? LOOK HOW EASY IT IS

CAN WE DO THIS? LOOK HOW EASY IT IS

I ask is it at all possible for Scotland to try and take over the Conservative party? I mean £1 a month out your bank account. I know many can’t afford that. But out of the 1.6 Million people who voted Yes, I am sure there are 70,000 people that can afford £1

The Scottish National Party is now the third largest party in the UK


Huge party now, can we get 2nd and get out this Union?

Huge party now, can we get 2nd and get out this Union?

By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

Last week the Scottish National Party lost the Scottish referendum vote, and they lost Alex Salmond. But the referendum has galvanised thousands of people to spend their hard-earned cash on membership to the party, according to Chief Executive Peter Murrell. The rise is dramatic; figures have increased by 154% in the last eight days alone, overtaking UKIP and the Lib Dems. 

These new members now make the party the THIRD largest political party in the UK.

Amazing Figures And a Huge Message To Westminster

Amazing Figures And a Huge Message To Westminster

The SNP released the figures ahead of the opening of the Scottish parliament, at which Salmond is expected to call for the voting age to be lowered to 16 before May’s general election. The younger age group, enfranchised for the first time in UK history, voted overwhelmingly in favor of independence last week. “With this influx of new members joining the SNP since the referendum – many of them from Labour’s heartlands – the Westminster establishment now face serious pressure to deliver on the substantial new powers for Scotland which the No camp promised during the campaign,” an SNP spokesperson said.
