Wings Over Scotland blogger Stuart Campbell arrested over allegations of online trolling against a woman in her 30’s, he insists he has done nothing wrong, already some people are floating that this is a “Britnat establishment” conspiracy, Campbell has been bailed till September, ‘who shot JR’ had more excitement

Dear All

It seems that the pro-independence blogger behind Wings Over Scotland has been arrested over claims of online harassment.

Police Officers have decided to arrest Stuart Campbell after a woman came forward alleging she was the victim of a two-year campaign of online abuse.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said:

“On 18 August a man aged in his 40s was arrested at an address in the Avon and Somerset area on suspicion of harassment and malicious communications. He has been bailed pending further enquiries to a date in mid-September. Enquiries continue.”

Already the possibility of a conspiracy theory has emerged as a person calling himself Alex McEwan online said:

“I have been waiting for this; my only surprise is that it has taken so long for Stuart Campbell to become the subject of police enquiry... It's what the britnat establishment does”.

“Britnat establishment”, you have to find this incredibly funny, with the Nationalist teeth drawn, Salmond, Robertson and some other non entities out in the street, Sturgeon getting ‘fanny fright’ over indyref 2, why would anyone bother to make up a conspiracy.

In defending his innocence, Stuart Campbell said:

“The piece by Tom Gordon (Herald Scotland) has been written for maximum innuendo to allow the wildest speculations on social media – which are of course duly taking place – but the alleged events relate entirely to some tweets from our Twitter account, none of which have been deleted and all of which are still publicly visible. Nothing more sinister or serious than some tweets has occurred or been alleged to have occurred. That’s all we’ll be saying on the subject at this time.”

49-year-old Campbell has been a prominent online campaigner for Scottish independence and runs the Wings Over Scotland website, he is a knob, his website which I have viewed is piss as well.

Despite some weak support on the Herald, it isn’t all plain sailing for Campbell, a person called Colin Robertson stated:

“I can hard contain my delight at the news that the Fake Reverend Stuart Campbell has been arrested. Totally brilliant!!”

He added:

“The man comes across as thoroughly unpleasant & disgusting. He currently is attempting to sue two people. The Wings Over Scotland website is a disgrace to Scotland & those who support & fund it should be ashamed of themselves. There are many who post here on the Herald & the very poor National who support & fund Wings Over Scotland. I hope the fake Reverend gets his comeuppance.

I'm off to celebrate”.

Does the possible downfall of Stuart Campbell warrant a celebration?

Stirling-born Campbell is currently embroiled in a legal battle with Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale, he apparently wants £25,000 in damages after he was accused of allegedly making homophobic comments.

At the present moment Stuart Campbell has said:

“For sucky reasons totally outwith my control (don’t ask), posts on Wings will be very sparse for an unknown period. Sorry, folks.”

Campbell has been bailed which no doubt some people will be disappointed that he isn’t held in prison, but the prison system is stretched at the moment so he can’t add ‘political prisoner’ to the CV.

Martin McDonald said on the drama:

“Looks like a co-ordinated move. Have we ever seen hundreds of positive feedbacks on unionist posts before? Today there are some at 107 and 108 within an hour. Very unusual”.

To which a Griff Geddes replied:

“Co-ordinated by whom and for what purpose? Do you seriously believe that the "establishment" (however you define it) has nothing better to do than "co-ordinate" some kind of "move" against an odious wee guy sitting at a computer in Bath? Or are you saying that the police shouldn't investigate complaints made to them if the person complained about happens to be a separatist blogger and mouthpiece?”

Finally, I find this story to be as Geddes said about a odious wee guy sitting at a computer in Bath vaguely amusing, but does it rate front page on the Herald Scotland website? I hardly think so, Campbell has a few diehard followers but really he is just a voice among many in the Nationalist camp with nothing of worth to say that is worth hearing.

The guy is a complete tool!

Fucked up priorities, poor judgement, inept and vacuous, Scotland’s unpopular First Minister Nicola Sturgeon built an entire career based on failure, professional and personal failures, anyone can make a mistake, but Sturgeon’s lack of breeding and class shines through every single day she remains in public office

Dear All

It seems that Scotland’s unpopular SNP leader isn’t universally popular as the SNP spin doctors would have you believe. Nicola Sturgeon has built a career based on failure, and being in the right place at the right time.

Her achievements amount to nothing; it has been a long road of failure built on screaming about grudge, grievance and malcontent.

On the Herald Scotland, some of the punters have decided to comment on Nicola Sturgeon’s work history. You would think that given the myth surrounding Sturgeon as a superwoman that she had been a high flyer, but it appears that others don’t share that view.

John Alexander wrote on Superwoman Sturgeon:

“It's worse than that. Mrs Sturgeon was shown the door by the two law firms that employed her - one in Glasgow and the other one in Stirling that you mention. The only employment that Mrs Sturgeon could subsequently obtain was a temporary job providing maternity leave cover at the Drumchapel Law Centre”.

Of course, you might think one guy, sour grapes, but then up pops, Gregory Allen who rather cuttingly suggest:

“She'll ingratiate herself with anyone for a vote ,she hasn't a moral fibre in her body”.

John Alexander later on, obviously with an eye on being historic and factual wrote:

"Nicola Sturgeon...'we still have work to do'." That's because Mrs Sturgeon has yet to make a start on doing her day job as First Minister. As for Mrs Sturgeon's other experience of "work" - two extracts from David Torrance's biography of Mrs Sturgeon are relevant:-

Extract 1: "After completing her diploma in the summer of 1993, Sturgeon joined McClure Naismith as a trainee solicitor..as one partner recalled, she was 'not an unusually energetic or conscientious trainee'...by the end, as the partner remembered, 'There was no question of Nicola staying on, and I don't think she was surprised by that decision...She just wasn't a star; she didn't show any great ambition.'"

Extract 2: "...during 1995 she began commuting to Stirling where the small firm of Bell & Craig had taken her on as an associate. Later, there were rumours that something had gone wrong in her legal career but, when asked about this in 2014, Sturgeon said simply, 'I've got nothing I want to confess'...as a trainee, she would not have had enough responsibility to make mistakes, although that did not rule out an incident at the smaller Stirling firm."

David Torrance's biography then records that Mrs Sturgeon's next employment was a temporary job providing maternity leave cover at the Drumchapel Law Centre.

My reading of this is ‘shit at everything’, you will of course remember that I used to blog how the SNP Cult worked while I was in the party, the general premise was that the ‘cult’ would organise a ‘job’ or ‘task’ then when it came to the graft they would bugger off and leave everything at their arse for someone else to do.

Ralph Kempson waded into the fray and wrote:

“Is there no bandwagon wee yippy won't hitch a ride on?”

He added:

“And is there some league table to prove her claim that Scotland is one of the most progressive countries in Europe on this issue, or any issue for that matter, or is that just another utterly vacuous load of piffle to add to the existing mountainous heap of piffle spouted by her over the years?”

It seems that recently the ‘big issues’ in Eckistan are tampons and cheap snide baby boxes under Nicola Sturgeon’s watch.

But recently Sturgeon out done herself, on the 17th Angust 2017, the World saw yet again Muslim terrorism hit Barcelona, terrorists used a vehicle to kill innocent people.

Next day, Nicola Sturgeon is slotted to go to a slap up dinner to celebrate Pakistan Independence Day anniversary as guest speaker at a celebration dinner.

Talk about bad timing!

If I was the leader of the SNP, I would have cancelled going to this event, if it went ahead it would have been in rather poor taste, but then some people might say that life goes on.

16 people of 9 different nationalities were killed: 13 on La Rambla, one probably stabbed in Barcelona by the attacker who stole his car, and one in Cambrils. Over 100 people from over 34 nations were injured, including 15 who were critically injured.

Nicola Sturgeon a few days later attended the Glasgow Pride event being the ‘first’ First Minister to officially attend this event, she said:

'we still have work to do'.

Given her work record, judgement and priorities………… I just look on her personally as a fucking asshole!

Yours sincerely

Barcelona Terrorist Attack: 10+ Dead, 100 Injured

Pakistani Muslim Rape Gangs; Speaking the truth is dangerous in the modern Labour Party as Labour MP Sarah Champion is punished and used as a 'scapegoat' after warning of Pakistani Muslims raping white children, Jeremy Corbyn’s failure of leadership shows why he will never be Prime Minister of Great Britain

Dear All

All that is wrong in the modern Labour Party can be summed up in one incident by the fact that Sarah Champion, the Labour MP has been forced to step down for speaking out about child sex grooming by the Pakistani community.

It is well known and there have been countless reported and historical cases of Muslim Pakistani men preying on under age white female children from deprived areas.

The areas read like a where’s where of deprivation areas, we recently seen Newscastle hit the headlines.

After telling the truth, Sarah Champion has been "punished" and "used as a scapegoat" as if she had done something in telling the truth. In politics, minority groups have joined political parties as a vehicle to further their own ends. I once heard at a polling station a Muslim Labour Candidate say to an Asian family coming down to vote that it was ‘important’ that ‘one of us’ get elected. I was appalled because I had known this individual in passing and never thought he was like that, turns out I was wrong.

But then you never truly know people do you.

The Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn should NOT have forced Sarah Champion into silence because it sends out the wrong message; the fact is that ‘playing the race card’ is a part of modern British politics used to shut down dissent.

 It is ridiculous that the Labour Party has lost such a valuable Equalities shadow minister because of the cowardice of Jeremy Corbyn. When I was in the Labour Party, I stayed on as a member to vote for him but as I wrote repeatedly, the two areas that he is bad at are foreign affairs and defence.

This episode shows clearly that Jeremy Corbyn will never be Prime Minister of Great Britain, in the key test of showing leadership, this goes beyond an epic fail.  

Amina Lone, the co-director of the Social Action and Research Foundation told the BBC's Newsnight programme: 

"She has been punished and used as a scapegoat because as a politician she's an easy target", adding that Labour should not have forced her into silence”.

Ms Lone later tweeted:

"Sarah Champion was talking about a particular type of grooming which is carried by men because of their cultural/religious practices”.

To add fuel to the disaster, the Conservative Government minister Sajid Javid also criticised the decision to force Ms Champion out.

He tweeted:

"Corbyn wrong to sack Sarah Champion. We need an honest open debate on child sexual exploitation, including racial motivation".

Other MPs have also spoken up in defence of Ms Champion, including Labour's Barry Sheerman:

"I don't understand the forced resignation of Sarah Champion and nor will my constituents".
Conservative MP Tim Loughton wrote:

"Those of us with experience in this area know Sarah Champion is highly respected for exposing child sexual abuse and  should be listened to. Obviously not all men. She is not a racist but a brave woman speaking out about a politically awkward issue. UK Labour bury your heads as much as you like in the black and white purist world you push. The chickens will come home to roost".

Margot James MP wrote:

"It is an outrage that @SarahChampionMP has had to quit the front bench; she must continue excellent work standing up for vulnerable girls"

To be forced out by telling the truth in the Labour Party sets a bad precedent, because this apart from looking rather shabby, it also shows that the party values Muslim votes and donations ahead of protecting vulnerable children.

Would a decent Muslim withhold a donation to the Labour Party because of Sarah Champion speaking out?

I doubt it.

In an article in The Sun, Ms. Champion warned politicians should not be afraid to discuss the high number of sexual exploitation and grooming cases against Pakistani men in the UK.  

She had written that an "over-sensitivity about language" had resulted in a climate of fear which had led to the "neglect, for so long, of the victims of these terrible crimes".

Corbyn, posted on Facebook:

"In recent days, The Sun has published statements that incite Islamophobia and stigmatise entire communities. That is wrong, dangerous and must be condemned".

Yasmin Qureshi, Labour's shadow justice minister has also refused to accept the Pakistani community has a particular issue with child grooming of white under age children despite high-profile cases which appear in our press and media constantly.

Trevor Philips, the former chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, told The Telegraph:

"I am absolutely gobsmacked, this is not the Labour party I know, even in the darkest days I don't remember people being asked to stand down for trying to represent their constituents, which is what I think Sarah Champion was trying to do. We shouldn't have to have an argument about free speech, what this feels like is what we used to call democratic centralism in the Labour party, in other words Stalinism".

Trevor Phillips in the past has written about the failure of multiculturalism in the UK, which in part is down to refusing to deal with problems like this which have destroyed social cohesion.

Sarah Champion bravely wrote:

"Britain has a problem with British Pakistani men raping and exploiting white girls”.

She added:

"There. I said it. Does that make me a racist? Or am I just prepared to call out this horrifying problem for what it is? For too long we have ignored the race of these abusers and, worse, tried to cover it up. No more. These people are predators and the common denominator is their ethnic heritage. We have to have grown-up conversations, however unpalatable, or in six months’ time we will be having this same scenario all over again."

After telling the truth, she was effectively forced to say:

"I apologise for the offence caused by the extremely poor choice of words in The Sun article on Friday. I am concerned that my continued position in the Shadow cabinet would distract from the crucial issues around child protection which I have campaigned on my entire political career. It is therefore with regret that I tender my resignation as Shadow Secretary of State for Women and Equalities."

Jeremy Corbyn is Leader of the Labour Party, I voted for him although I knew that he would never be Prime Minister of Great Britain, he is a weak man.

I wonder if he realises how much goodwill and votes he has lost through this failure of his leadership.

Recently, I was asked to get involved in the Glasgow by-election at Cardonald for the Pollok CLP, I decided not to offer my services. The Labour Party is in no fit state to govern which is why they lost the election, it is true they benefit from a protest vote in 2017 but there is an underlying problem of credibility and now integrity to deal with.

SNP Rat Fight: former SNP Leader Alex Salmond savages unpopular Nicola Sturgeon over treatment of fraud-case MP Michelle Thomson, first rule of ‘ratship’ is protect the ship, is the ground being prepared for Alex Salmond to return as SNP leader, if this is the opening shot then Salmond fired a blank

Dear All

Do you know what a ‘stalking horse’ is?

Just so you can get clued up.

When Kenny MacAskill got bumped as Justice Minister of Scotland, it was the right decision, I said he had to go, and when unpopular Nicola Sturgeon got crowned because no one would stand against her, she done him in.

Kenny MacAskill was Alex Salmond’s man.

In the press of late, we have had it appears a bit of stalking horse activity in my opinion, the ground being prepared for the removal of unpopular Nicola Sturgeon who will at some stage jump. Alex Salmond using his ‘jolly fat man’ routine managed to create a situation where he was able to win the confidence of Scots at the ballot box. The new era of Nicola Sturgeon as leader has been an untold and unmitigated disaster.

Nicola Sturgeon isn’t a leader of men.

When the Michelle Thomson case popped up on the radar, many people sat and read how Thomson made her money by allegedly purchasing properties from desperate sellers at below market valuations.

As one house owner said:

“We needed the money. We knew that we would take a loss, but we were desperate. I knew I was being taken advantage of, but we were about to get our home dispossessed.”

On that alone, I would have removed the whip from Michelle Thomson, some people may call her activities ‘sharp business practice’ but others would see it as exploiting the vulnerable in their time of need. When Thomson’s activities hit the press, we all sat back as a police inquiry into mortgage fraud allegations rumbled on. The SNP seeing the headlines, and keen to protect Nicola Sturgeon allegedly told Thomson she was being dumped if she didn’t resign the whip.

Now that the Crown say they can’t make a case against Thomson, it seems that Alex Salmond who lost his Westminster seat has decided that the inept leadership of Nicola Sturgeon needs a public airing. He has decided after MacAskill has already done some of the spade work to savage Nicola Sturgeon over treatment of fraud-case MP.

Alex Salmond has said during his stage show at the Fringe that Michelle Thomson had been denied 'natural justice' by the SNP during a police inquiry into mortgage fraud allegations.

So, what is 'natural justice'?

The right to a fair hearing, how could a morally bankrupt organisation like the Scottish National Party which is run as a cult have given Thomson a fair hearing, and if they had a mock trial, and down the line there was a criminal conviction, where would that leave the SNP then?

It was right to throw Michelle Thomson under the bus, because this is the modus operandi in British politics, got a problem, then you bury it as soon as possible less it affects the rest.

Maybe someone should ask the ‘jolly fat man’ how he would have delivered Michelle Thomson 'natural justice', and while he is at it, if he applies a standard then would he have also be obligated to do the same for the odious pig that is ex SNP MPNatalie McGarry?

It is pretty clear that Nicola Sturgeon gets a lot wrong but in the case of Thomson and McGarry, there was no way in God’s Earth that you couldn’t withdraw the whip. As to the ‘right’ to re-stand as the SNP MP while being investigated, the rules are clear, once dumped you stay dump until you are cleared.

There was no way the SNP could have chosen Thomson for the seat she formally held.

And despite Thomson saying she could have held it, that is ‘pie in the sky’ daydreaming, she would have been shunted out the door along with the rest of the deadbeats that got canned in 2017.

Salmond’s judgemen!

In my opinion, and history backs me up, Alex Salmond gets a lot wrong, he said that Thomson should get readmitted to the ‘ratship’ but where he gets it wrong is when he says that she should be allowed to stand for election again.

If anything, this would be a gift to the position as they continually ask questions about her business activities and how she made her money.

Salmond said on welcoming Thomson back:

“I’ve always believed that. I was one of the people who voted in the parliamentary group to make that happen a year ago. It was an extremely difficult situation which the SNP handled badly. You cannot have a situation where people are denied natural justice.”

Presumably this doesn’t apply to poor people who are SNP members; the SNP has a history of treating people like trash.

Apparently Thomson is demanding that Sturgeon apologise to her over the way she was treated, saying it was “disturbing” she was never given the chance to speak directly to the SNP leader.

What right is that?

Salmond said:

“I believe taking disciplinary action against somebody should be at the point of being charged. Even then, you could argue that if someone has been charged they have not been found guilty of anything. Although I think the SNP made a mistake, they were not the instigators of the mistake. The people who bear the heaviest burden of responsibility for the position Michelle has found herself in over these last two years are your publications. You should reflect on that because you have effectively removed the political career of somebody I thought was an incredibly talented female politician.”

There is so much in that paragraph above that is so wrong, hard to know where to start, and to blame the press, well…… tough shit Thomson!

To show how much Alex Salmond has lost the plot, the ex-SNP leader predicted that by 2021 Scotland will have voted to leave the UK.

Wrong again!

The SNP is on a downward spiral under Nicola Sturgeon, we are on course for a hung parliament if things keep going as they are at present; obviously Salmond’s show is allegedly entertainment so he can spout any old rubbish for a headline.

Finally; if there is a bit of plotting to oust Nicola Sturgeon then Salmond should remember that “Softly, softly, catchee monkey”.

Targeting the Vulnerable, 18 strong Muslim rape gang get convicted for child rape, drugs offences, inciting prostitution, yet again the same format is used to lure young children, multiculturalism has failed, and we need new laws to be introduced to strengthen the time served in prison

Dear All

Politicians know that multiculturalism has failed, it was forced onto the British people in a dramatic way by the Labour Party under Tony Blair, at the time; the people of UK were specifically told this was done for economic reasons to help the country grow.

It was a lie; it was a social engineering experiment which was to have disastrous consequences down the line.

No one got a vote on whether they wanted multiculturalism and the ramifications of relaxing controls saw a rise in the breakdown of social cohesion. You could say; that the Labour Party had laid the foundations of the UK’s exit from the EU, the resentment; the seed that was planted was to grow.

Once the people clicked onto the fact that their views weren’t being addressed, and that the ‘regressive left’ were quick to brand people as ‘racists’, the people were always going to react badly. A problem was to emerge which the political class weren’t keen to acknowledge, a heinous crime where Muslim gangs would be formed to indulge in child rape. Of course, the child rape crimes weren’t taking place within their own community but specifically targeted towards young white children.

There have been many cases of Muslim rape gangs operating in the UK, and they seem strangely to all the same format. The format is to seek out poor white female children in deprived areas and then supplied with cash, cigarettes and drugs in exchange for sex.

In the latest episode of Muslim rape gangs operating in the UK, a 13 year old girl was taken from her home and repeatedly raped by Muslim men as if they were in a 'relay race'. This was done by a group which was allegedly 18-strong; luckily these people have been caught and convicted.

Sadly before their crime spree came to an end, they had managed to rack up crimes against up to 108 girls. One girl spoke of how a rich Muslim would come picked her up in a Mercedes from the children's home and take to flats to be sexually abused.

So, who are these child rapists and what part did they play in these crimes?

Saiful Islam, 35, of Newcastle, was jailed for 10 years in January 2016 for raping a 15-year-old girl in 2011.

Yasser Hussain, 28, of Newcastle, was jailed for two years in October 2015 for a sex attack.  

Mohammed Hassan Ali, 34, of Newcastle, was jailed for seven years in December 2015 for sexual activity with a child.
Redwan Siddique, 32, of Newcastle, was jailed for 16 months in February for supplying M-Kat to a 19-year-old in return for sex at his student digs in 2013.

Defendants yet to be sentenced:

Carolann Gallon, 22, from Newcastle, aged 17-18 at the time, admitted three offences of trafficking girls for the purposes of sexual exploitation.

Mohammed Azram, 35, of Newcastle, admitted five drugs offences and was convicted of one count of sexual assault and one count of conspiracy to incite prostitution for gain.

Jahangir Zaman, 45, of Newcastle, was convicted of rape, supplying drugs and inciting prostitution.

Nashir Uddin, 35, of Newcastle, was convicted of sexual assault, allowing premises to be used to supply drugs, conspiracy to incite prostitution and who admitted four counts of supplying drugs and three of possessing drugs.

Abdulhamid Minoyee, 34, of Newcastle, was convicted of rape and sexual assault and pleaded guilty to supplying drugs.

Eisa Mousavi, 42, of Newcastle, was convicted of three counts of rape, two counts of supplying drugs, allowing premises to be used for the supply of drugs and conspiracy to incite prostitution.

Monjur Choudhury, 33, of Newcastle, was convicted of supplying drugs, permitting premises to be used for the supply of drugs and conspiracy to incite prostitution.

Taherul Alam, 32, Newcastle, who was convicted of two counts of supplying drugs, one count of permitting premises to be used for supplying drugs, attempting to sexually assault, and of conspiracy to incite prostitution.

Prabhat Nelli, 33, Newcastle, who was convicted of two counts of supplying drugs and one count of conspiracy to incite prostitution.

Nadeem Aslam, 43, Newcastle, who admitted possessing cannabis and was convicted of two counts of supplying drugs, one count of possessing drugs and one count of permitting premises to be used in the supply of drugs.

Habibur Rahim, 34, of Fenham, was convicted of two counts of conspiracy to incite prostitution, relating to eight different victims. He supplied them with cannabis and mephedrone and was also convicted of a number of trafficking for sexual exploitation offences. He was convicted of one count of rape.

Abdul Sabe, 40, of Newcastle, was convicted of conspiracy to incite prostitution, conspiracy to traffic for sexual exploitation, conspiracy to sexual assault, and supplying drugs to victims. He was already on the sex offenders' register.

Badrul Hussain, 37, of Newcastle, was convicted of allowing drugs to be used at his premises and of supplying drugs. He was cleared of inciting prostitution for gain.

Mohibur Rahman, 44, known to victims as Jimmy, admitted conspiracy to incite prostitution and five drugs charges.

This is the seventh large scale sex gang scandal to hit the UK after infamous cases from towns including Rotherham, Rochdale, Oxford and Bristol, those prosecuted were from the Bangladeshi, Pakistani, Indian, Iraqi, Iranian and Turkish communities.

If you want to know how badly multiculturalism has failed then the words of convicted, 37-year-old Badrul Hussain should be heeded:

'All white women are good for one thing, for men like me to fuck and use as trash; that is all women like you are worth.'

Chief Constable Steve Ashman, of Northumbria Police, said strong punishments are needed to deal with the 'vile' individuals who target vulnerable people, and to act as a deterrent, he is of course quite correct. I think in crimes like this involved organised crime, there should be a minimum 20 year sentence on top of punishments for individual acts. Although most of these people were apparently born here, their values in the main the values of the majority of the population, and as such they should be removed from society until they no longer pose a threat.

Of those people who are foreigners, once their sentences are completed, automatic deportation should be the norm, and where citizenship has been granted, it should be revoked.

Lots of people have lost faith in politicians and in politics, when you read stories like this, don’t read it as an abstract, instead imagine for a moment how you would feel if it was your child who was used and abused. Too many people in society refuse to speak up, because the political class turn on them and brand them racists while at the same if contacted by the media for comment do through the ritual of condemnation, praise the police, and saying ‘lessons need to be learned’.

One lesson which hasn’t been learned is that the politicians who caused the damaged to social cohesion have escaped without sanction.
