Many Scottish taxpayers will be alarmed by it but most SNP don’t derive their income from wealth generating businesses and assume that magic fairies will continue to subsides all the largess. In the short term that’l be English magic fairies, post independence they seem to be pinning their hopes on German magic fairies.

Just when you thought Scottish politics couldn’t get more mental. Clootie hate appears!

That genuinely has to be the first time I've seen one of them trying to rein in the cult.
The SNP highheidyins are probably worried that they will lose the protection money, oops donations, from the owners and other sources.

My sense is that the SNP/Yes 'Command' are reluctant to rein in their thuggish, half witted supporters, sympathisers, Cyber Battalion, fellow travellers, woad covered, hate filled, wooden shield carrying, slack jawed, cliché spouting, benefits hoovering, pie munching, Buckie quaffing, £10 kilt wearing, Stürm Abteilung because: to do so would shine a very bright unflattering light on the nature of the core Independence support. The opposition in Holyrood should be shining that light.

Swinney pushed back on 1 of 100s of card carrying roasters. They live among you.
 

Article above led to me another by Jenny Hjul, she's no fan of St. Nic

just read it and cant find anything wrong in what she says about sturgeon - there's probably never been a more opportunistic leader in history! any anti English/BoJo bandwagon, any time, any place as long as it allows her to look 'strong' to the cult and to cause harm and confusion out of sheer wickedness and hatred

Just been chatting to a friend in South Africa - he tells me that he hasn't seen any reports of anyone down there with the new strain being hospitalised or dying - not conclusive evidence - but it looks like we may have less to worry about than the scaremongers are suggesting.

At this point of covid with the vast majority of people vaccinated or with antibodies, the last thing the NHS needs is more saving! - more lockdowns would only make more businesses and people broke, more people refusing to comply and even more people dying from lack of treatment by the NHS

- Sturgeon and people like her are now playing with fire with their constant panic porn and authoratarism - they've cried wolf too many times whilst ignoring the rules themselves. I fully expect a popular revolt to happen in somewhere like Australia. NZ or Austria in the coming months unless the governing class pulls back from the brink.
 
About as convincing as a Rottweiler owner whispering 'here doggy' 15 minutes after the dog starts attacking children.

Please do not compare SNP supporters to Rottweilers. One is an aggressive, stupid, violent animal that will instinctively and savagely attack anyone it perceives as not submitting to it as the Alpha of the pack.

The other is a Rottweiler. :)

Whilst I very much agree with the tone of your post I feel the term revolt is a little strong. I do, however, feel that any further restrictions would be dealt with by being given a stiff ignoring or contemptuous shrug.

I dont expect a 'revolt' in the UK mate because we are too easy going but our European neighbours are far more likely to violently snap eg Rotterdam has had several violent protests in recent weeks as has had Germany and France.

However, to be honest we expect that from our excitable neighbours but I think that we have all been surprised by Australia and the sheer insanity going on there of military patrols and the setting up of forced quarantine/concentration camps etc and that is where I expect the proper revolt to finally occur if their PM doesn't calm the feck down.

Thinking about it, the English Population also gets a bit rioty compared to us in Scotland and looking at the medias desperate attempt to take out BoJo tonight over the xmas party non event and also SAGEs desperation to lock us all down again (with full media support) I could quite easily see the English snapping into a Revolt - none of us up here cares what Sturgeon does or says which might explain why we are a lot less rioty :)

Pretty much agree with all of that. We are returning to Scotland for Crimbo/NY. Mrs FP has stated she will be ignoring any further restrictions. A former cop!
Folks have had enough. Let's get on with life and let Darwin deal with the unvaccinated.
