Nicola’s Lessons from Auschwitz

Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon visited Auschwitz last week.  Those of us who have been can understand when in her article in the Scotsman she described the effect.  Especially when she talks about the sheer industrial scale of Birkenau.  However she has also come under criticism from some who suggest that this was just a publicity stunt and a photo-op.   That is not fair and … Continue reading Nicola’s Lessons from Auschwitz

HateGate – The Police Respond

The Dundee Courier have this report today on the police/Scottish government Hate campaign. Note the police response from Chief Superintendent John McKenzie:  “It would be inappropriate to comment on a matter of personal correspondence.  Police Scotland welcomes correspondence and communication with members of the public.” It’s hard to believe both the inanity and the brass neck of that comment.  First of all this is not … Continue reading HateGate – The Police Respond

The Political Police and the Slide to an Authoritarian State

I believe that this is an extremely important subject and that is speaks to a clear and present danger that all freedom loving free thinkers need to be aware of.  If you agree please pass it on and let try to get our politicians and police back to what they should be doing in a free state – governing for the good of all and … Continue reading The Political Police and the Slide to an Authoritarian State

How does Good Theology Lead to Good Society, Law and Politics?

Modern society tends to be presented with two assumed opposites with regard to the relationship between Christianity and society.  On the one hand it is assumed that society should be secular and that religion should be at the level of a private club.  The alternative to this is assumed to be a kind of Christian theocracy where the church runs the State and pastors have … Continue reading How does Good Theology Lead to Good Society, Law and Politics?

The Big Picture of the Big Brother State

Police Scotland have replied to my (and many others) concerns about their anti-hate campaign    I reported the police to themselves for breaching their own guidelines here Now they have replied…and it is an astonishing reply – As you may be aware, the following definitions are used by Police Scotland in relation to hate crimes and incidents. A hate crime is any crime which is perceived by the … Continue reading The Big Picture of the Big Brother State

The ‘Hate’ Police are Now Here

Cycling home from St Peters I saw a poster that took my breath away.  Sometimes you see that something is going to happen and yet it still shocks you when it does.  These posters are currently being displayed in towns and cities all over Scotland.   There are others – but it was these that took my breath away –     You will note … Continue reading The ‘Hate’ Police are Now Here

America’s Despair

My original piece on the Brett Kavanaugh fiasco, (America’s Disgrace) really stirred up the cesspit – as if it needed any stirring. (although to be fair a number of people also expressed appreciation).   Ironically the reaction to it kind of proves the points I was trying to make – the main one is simply that we don’t know what happened 35 years ago – and … Continue reading America’s Despair
