RIVERSIDE TRAVESTY: £300,000 project to concrete over natural beauty spot will be complete by summer

by Colin Campbell WORK is to start this week on the Ness riverside Gathering Place. As water from the river in spate filled the site planned for the “artwork” scheme yesterday hopes that the hugely controversial project would also be sunk were dashed by an announcement from Highland Council. Its April Fool’s day timing could not have been more ironic. But this was no risible … Continue reading RIVERSIDE TRAVESTY: £300,000 project to concrete over natural beauty spot will be complete by summer

The superb success of lifesaver vaccination programme

by Colin Campbell I AM absolutely delighted to be joining Her Majesty the Queen in receiving my second dose of the coronavirus vaccine this week. She received hers a couple of days ago, as emblazoned in yesterday’s headlines, and Friday’s the day for me. It is a joy and a privilege to share this momentous experience with the most famous and most admired woman in … Continue reading The superb success of lifesaver vaccination programme

Already, less need for concern over threats from Salmond the slob

by Colin Campbell THE first poll on Alex Salmond’s Alba Party has found only three per cent of voters plan to support it. If that holds and given Salmond’s widespread unpopularity – another poll finding –  then Alba will disappear like snow of a dyke. At the weekend Salmond the slob raised the prospect of “street protests” arising from a refusal by Boris Johnson to … Continue reading Already, less need for concern over threats from Salmond the slob

SNP ‘crofter’ and money-grubber Blackford prepares to lead the sheep

by Colin Campbell “AND so it begins” sighed Ross MP and SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford in a Twitter posting. And begin it did, as defections from the SNP to Alex Salmond’s new Alba party turned the level of infighting among nationalists into a frenzy of fury, recrimination and loathing. But “simple 10-acres crofter” Blackford wasn’t referring to that as he took refuge from it … Continue reading SNP ‘crofter’ and money-grubber Blackford prepares to lead the sheep

Power crazed Sturgeon and vengeance crazed Salmond will compete to ramp up extremism

by Colin Campbell WHAT a truly hellish pair of cult leaders now represent the squalid face of nationalism. Scowling, grievance-mongering Nicola Sturgeon with her threat to hold an illegal referendum at the height of the pandemic has been joined by her arch enemy Alex Salmond, a man with a reputation for arrogance and nastiness towards his fellow human beings, particularly women, and oozing vengeance out … Continue reading Power crazed Sturgeon and vengeance crazed Salmond will compete to ramp up extremism

Nats want ‘to go home to their European family’. But not yet, they might miss their second jab

by Colin Campbell IN a most poignant and plaintive expression of what our departure from the EU means to some people, SNP MP Pete Wishart said: “I just want to go home to our European family. I still can’t believe that we’ve been taken out against our will and deprived of this wonderful community.” Did I say plaintive? That’s positively heart-rending. Unfortunately Mr Wishart won’t … Continue reading Nats want ‘to go home to their European family’. But not yet, they might miss their second jab

May poll is the ‘independence election’? No one’s told Fergus Ewing

by Colin Campbell AMID so much hype and hogwash, the SNP/nationalists have tried to frame the May poll for the Scottish Parliament as “the independence election”. Nothing else matters apparently, not the pandemic, the vaccine, the recovery that will get underway when businesses start to reopen, and the inevitable rise in unemployment among those who’ll have no jobs to go back to. That’s how they … Continue reading May poll is the ‘independence election’? No one’s told Fergus Ewing

Flying the flag may be provocative to some, but a vast number of people will welcome it

by Colin Campbell THE Union Jack is to be flown on UK Government buildings in Scotland and elsewhere every day, following an announcement from Westminster. That will be a very welcome sight to see. Needless to say, the news has not been received with universal approval. “The Butcher’s Apron” and all that malarkey from those still seething over historical events which normal people do not … Continue reading Flying the flag may be provocative to some, but a vast number of people will welcome it

SNP publish fake plan for fake referendum which would be an illegal, boycotted farce

by Colin Campbell THE SNP yesterday presented their long-awaited plan to hold a fake referendum. And, like any fake document, you need to hold it up to the light and see whether it’s worth the paper it’s written in. There was predictable jubilation among nationalists – it reminded me of March, 2017, when Nicola Sturgeon made another big indyef2 declaration. In the general election three … Continue reading SNP publish fake plan for fake referendum which would be an illegal, boycotted farce

The Great British vaccine triumph versus the sleazy SNP

by Colin Campbell NICOLA Sturgeon is said to be “hanging on by her fingernails” following the revelation that a committee of inquiry into the Salmond affair will publish a report stating that she gave inaccurate information and misled them. But her fingernails are made of tungsten steel, and hang on she will. The Tories at Holyrood have warned they are giving Sturgeon “a last chance” … Continue reading The Great British vaccine triumph versus the sleazy SNP
