After covid infections soared, details on Highland hospital numbers mysteriously vanished

by Colin Campbell AS an alternative to Partygate and Angela Rayner’s legs, yesterday we thought we’d turn our attention to something of substance that has virtually disappeared from the landscape altogether. Namely, the number of people in Highland hospitals with covid. Many people I suspect view this as yesterday’s news. How lucky those of us who tend to think like that are to be in … Continue reading After covid infections soared, details on Highland hospital numbers mysteriously vanished

Councillors refuse to throw women out of work to appease holier than thou SNP hypocrites

by Colin Campbell I ANTICIPATED the decision might go the other way, but councillors on Monday refused to force the closure of the Private Eyes so called “sex entertainment venue” in Academy Street, Inverness. This may be seen as a “sensitive issue” in the current censorious climate, where so many people are hunting around for things to be offended by. But it’s only as “sensitive” … Continue reading Councillors refuse to throw women out of work to appease holier than thou SNP hypocrites

SHARON STONE SCANDAL! Sturgeon joins Rayner as victim of misogyny

by Colin Campbell TWO years ago we were in full lockdown. It was an unprecedented, intimidating and deeply uncertain time. But many people at least had the compensation of being paid virtually a full wage for staying at home watching TV or doing a bit in the garden. I hope we never go back there, but at least I remember it in a sense as … Continue reading SHARON STONE SCANDAL! Sturgeon joins Rayner as victim of misogyny

Salmond piles on the pressure to steer clear of SNP candidates

by Colin Campbell LAST week Nicola Sturgeon inserted into the SNP council elections manifesto the provision that the election of  every SNP candidate would be construed and utilised as support for independence. In Inverness, the councillors who opposed the Gathering Place, like Ron MacWilliam (now standing as an independent), Bill Boyd and Ken Gowans were mainly from the SNP. This had nothing whatever to do … Continue reading Salmond piles on the pressure to steer clear of SNP candidates

CRAZIER THAN THE WALL: STURGEON NOW SAYS A VOTE FOR AN SNP OPPONENT OF THE GATHERING PLACE IS A VOTE FOR ANOTHER REFERENDUM

by Colin Campbell NICOLA Sturgeon has now gone the whole hog and incorporated into the SNP’s council elections manifesto the provision that a vote for an SNP candidate is a vote for another independence referendum. She no doubt hopes after the votes are counted on May 5 this will give her yet another so called “mandate”. In Inverness, this latest decree from Sturgeon is crazier … Continue reading CRAZIER THAN THE WALL: STURGEON NOW SAYS A VOTE FOR AN SNP OPPONENT OF THE GATHERING PLACE IS A VOTE FOR ANOTHER REFERENDUM

CLUB BAN THREAT IS SMALL TOWN MENTALITY IN SO CALLED ‘BIG CITY’

by Colin Campbell What are described as “sex entertainment venues” in the Highlands could be banned at a “crunch” Highland Council meeting next week, we are told. The only difficulty for councillors eager to get to grips with this is that there aren’t any to ban. How do they intend to go about banning things that don’t exist? Even for Highland councillors, this is an … Continue reading CLUB BAN THREAT IS SMALL TOWN MENTALITY IN SO CALLED ‘BIG CITY’

Never mind potholes, schools and failing services, for the SNP council elections are all about ‘Partygate’

by Colin Campbell DREW Henry in his “terrific” latest podcast, his weekly pride and joy, apparently discusses the upcoming council elections with three local SNP candidates. I say apparently because I haven’t listened to it. I did my onerous service in boosting the regular audience for these things (his office staff and his cat) when I heard Ian Blackford telling the Podcast King back in … Continue reading Never mind potholes, schools and failing services, for the SNP council elections are all about ‘Partygate’

Crackpot plan for 16-year-old MPs

by Colin Campbell I HAVE a young relative who will very shortly turn 13. Becoming a teenager is a special milestone and it’s intended that she should enjoy a special birthday celebration to match. I hope she enjoys the freedom and lack of responsibility that goes with it. Because if things take a more serious turn and she evolves into another young Greta Thunberg, she … Continue reading Crackpot plan for 16-year-old MPs

Masks mainly abandoned in city centre in final step back to normality

by Colin Campbell EASTER Monday mask freedom day should have represented freedom from Nicola Sturgeon and the end at last of her two year reign of dictating often in the most minute detail how we should live our lives. Instead she was on the front pages of virtually ever paper and branded a “mask hypocrite” because she was reported to the police by some opportunistic … Continue reading Masks mainly abandoned in city centre in final step back to normality

Sturgeon adorns campaign superbus with out of date, golden girl photo

by Colin Campbell NICOLA Sturgeon is on a campaign bus tour of Scotland with the outsize vehicle adorned by a giant picture of her which looks years out of date. It might have been taken seven years ago when the fresh faced new SNP leader was mobbed like a rock star by a vast crowd on Inverness High Street, many of them ardent devotees and … Continue reading Sturgeon adorns campaign superbus with out of date, golden girl photo
