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

The Atheist Cacangelist

Richard Dawkins is reigniting his career as an atheist cacangelist.   What you may ask is a cacangelist?  Its a new word (I think) which should not be added to our dictionary.   The word evangelist comes from the Greek – meaning the messenger of good news.  I have often described Richard Dawkins as an atheist evangelist…but it doesn’t really work because atheism has no good news.  … Continue reading The Atheist Cacangelist

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 (part 2) and a Brilliant Letter

The politicisation of the police is something that we should all be worried about.  It is clear yesterdays article , The Political Police and the Slide to an Authoritarian State,  that there are some groups and political causes that are being promoted and favoured by the police – they are encouraging these groups to report hate crimes, and dissuading others from doing so.  The only … Continue reading The Political Police (part 2) and a Brilliant Letter

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
