Further evidence of snp duplicity and hostility to the trade union movement arrives just in time for the beginning of referendum year. Not that any was needed but this is special, the Scottish government announced that it would legislate against companies who blacklisted Scottish trade unionists and employers who employed Scottish workers on zero hour’s contracts. Unfortunately it was discovered that some large companies who are close to the snp will be exempt from that legislation, yes you heard that right, companies who are friends of the snp will be able to continue blacklisting Scottish trade unionists and employing Scottish workers on zero hours contracts with impunity because salmond and the snp have decided that their friends will not be subjected to the same rules as everyone else. If this is not blatant anti union bias I don’t know what is. The snp for all their bluster have never been able to make a breakthrough with the trade union movement and the hatred that that has generated from them to the unions is palpable because of this.
Grangemouth provided a glimpse of the real face of the snp when salmond demanded that the union members should in fact surrender to Ineos. He called on them to accept cuts in wages and pensions, a two tier workforce, poorer conditions and a guarantee of a no strike agreement, he deliberately took those union members back a hundred years, it was the act of a vengeful traitor. Now he provides immunity for blacklisters and exploiters of labour. This man and this party are no friends of Scottish workers, unions would be discriminated against under an snp separate Scotland of that there is no doubt, they would be trampled under the snp jackboot as the snp took the side of management against them to settle scores because of their support for Labour. Scotland would become a country of cheap non unionised labour and a haven for tax dodgers.
As 2014 approaches I am pleased that the political pendulum is swinging back to Labour and pleased that that applies to Holyrood, Westminster and the independence laugharendum, the NO campaign is rock steady and has maintained a steady and massive lead over the yes camp for well over two years now and I expect it to turn in to a complete rout and humiliation for salmond and the snp crazies. The behaviour of the separatists is set to worsen as the car crash nears and I confidently predict civil unrest by some of what we used to call the “bampots” in the loony wing of the snp, the streets will not be safe for anyone with an English accent and we can only hope that the “Polis” are ready for it.
At this time of year I always ask people and I do so now to think of the “little town of Bethlehem” and let it remind you of those worse off than ourselves as it nestles on the west bank of the river Jordan in occupied Palestine. A place where inhabitants are surrounded by tanks, barbed wire and check points by the inhuman and brutal bully that is Israel. Offer up hope that it will someday be restored to peace and its people and all the other Palestinians under siege will be granted their dignity and human rights.
the proper authorities have been notified, the men in white coats are coming to get you, your self induced psychosis is now beyond the limits of public and personal safety, you will be taken into SNP custody to ensure that you do not self harm or viciously attack men in kilts,,you now clearly represent the lunatic fringe of the conservative/labour party. Have you no family that care enough about you to get you some help ? but never despair Terry wee Eck will come to the rescue,you just need to say YES . saor alba gu brath and merry xmas ya bass.
Here we have a half witted supporter of the snp describing me as a supporter of the Conservative/Labour party, perhaps he/she lives in a cave.
The snp Scottish Government have just given their right wing business friends permission to ignore the law banning blacklisting and zero hours contracts. Do you ever like me ask yourself what the snp actually stand for?.
Kelly, please explain why you are in favour of a united, and therefore, independent Ireland, yet against an independent Scotland?
Undoubtedly, your logic will, as usual astound me and your other reader, bur it is Christmas, so indulge us.
Happy Christmas to you and yours, laddie, misguided though you are.
Been reading Fraser Nelson your friend and funder of the Better Together team I see.
Can you provide links to confirm your assertions or does one take it with a large pinch of salt?

Did your psychologist recommend that or they would have to reassess your care prescription free under the current SG.
Never heard of Fraser Nelson. If you want to challenge what I have said then you prove me wrong I stand by all of it.I have no idea what "comment moderation has been enabled" means but I do have final say on what is printed in my blog and I print almost everything that is sent to me. You are a cynical half wit Highlander.
I think of the Irish as being involved in a heroic struggle for freedom from an occupier who are still occupying part of their country. Scotland have been part of Britain for over 300 years with no complaint, the Irish have never accepted a divided Ireland and continue the struggle.IMO that is a big difference.
Kelly @ 6.17
So, other than the Scots comimg late to the party...and that's arguable...no difference between the two, then.
And if a united Ireland means leaving the UK, are you sure it would meet 100% with Paddy approval?
I ask, because that has caused a wee bitty bother in the past...and the buggers are still at it.
The last time the question was put to the all of the people on the island of Ireland it was I think 85% in favour of a united Ireland I feel confident enough to let you disprove that.
So you support Irish nationalism because it is 'heroic'?
Kelly @ 11.40
Kelly you rascal, you know full well, the 2012 figures show a Republic population of 4.58 million vs 1.8 in N Ireland.
Those figures, plus the fact the IRA have ways of encouraging voters Mr Salmond can only dream of, make your conclusions, as always, questionable.

"I think of the Irish as being involved in a heroic struggle for freedom" (Terry Kelly) What are you referring to?.
Kelly @ 11.40 Saturday, December 28, 2013 3:55:00 pm
The 85% result was achieved under the auspices of the British Parliament who controlled Ireland at the time
Kelly @ 8.12
Kelly, at that time, Capone was alive and well, America had Prohibition, the Charleston was all the rage and Fidel was a twinkle in the milkman's eye.
Times change, son...ask the folk in Enniskillen.
Stop playing historical games, you just aren't up to it
I'm sure that you will join me in wishing congratulations to Councillor Eileen McCartin in receiving her MBE in the New Years Honours List.
A deserving recognition of a devoted and hard working politician.

An honourable man would have said 'my goodness 85% in favour of a united Ireland, I had no idea, thank you for filling in such a blank for me'.
Councillor McCartin is exactly the kind of person suited to such an award.
A thought for you to take into the New Year, Councillor...you write lots of unpleasant stuff about the elected government of the UK.
Now, if I was a citizen of Cuba, the country you so admire and wrote in similar vein about Castro, what would happen?
Go on, have a guess...!
Despite our political differences and you verging on lunacy, a good New Year to you and yours.

"if I was a citizen of Cuba, the country you so admire and wrote in similar vein about Castro, what would happen?"
Let me think, would I be held in Guantanamo prison camp for 12 years without charge?.
Kelly @ 4.41
Castro runs Guantamano? My goodness, I had no idea. Thank you for filling in such a blank for me.
Name names Terry, what right wing business friends, and how are they to be exempted, rather than your pathetic new labour tactic of spin and smear with no detail or no link to provable bona fide facts, offer your loyal readers and constituents some hard evidence, which they can peruse when they come back from the food banks,which so delight your tory masters, you and the labour party no longer have a moral compass at all, you are both an absolute disgrace to socialism.
And as for your pathetic little town of bethlehem paragraph, go stand outside the food bank in your ward and ask them if they feel there are many people in palestine worse off than them, how many food banks in palestine terry ?
Councillor Kelly what are you on ?
I'm right on the money as always.
Everything I said was true and I stand by it. I do in fact have a moral compass that is why I never hide, that is why I am never afraid to face anyone, unlike some spineless people who have no moral compass and no courage whatsoever, like you in fact.
Delighted to try to fill in the blanks for you. The quickest route for many inmates to reach Guantanamo was to be arrested by the Pakistani authorities and tortured until signing a confession saying that they were anti USA terrorists. They were then sold to the Americans with British knowledge for the then going price of $1,500 a person thus enabling America to claim it was hunting down terrorists after 9/11 supported by the British.
Guantanamo is of course an American facility but it's also a good example of British government sponsored war crimes. Would you prefer I was more direct and told you some tales about other places, Ireland, South Africa, Kenya, Aden, Israel etc. take your pick.
Terry could you provide links to actual proof of your claims? If true it seems strange that no other media outlet has picked up on this. As for your comment about civil war Scottish nationalists have never done anything of the sort. However just a few months ago British Nationalists went on the rampage and rioted for weeks in Northern Ireland because a democratic decision was made not to fly the Butchers Apron everyday from Belfast Town Hall. As the events in Ireland show Unionism is extreme and intolerant.
Excellent terry! Glad to see you showing concern for all these injustices. Independence and freedom from British oppression for all apart from Scotland and your constituents. Still withdrawing free school meals programmes as a Labour cooncillor?

What civil war are you talking about?. If you care to do some research about blacklisting you will find that large firms carrying out millions of pounds of public works are to be exempt from the law banning zero hours and blacklisting courtesy of the snp, go and check for yourself. They are a bunch of treacherous bastards who couldn't care less about Scottish workers, Grangemouth showed salmond's true colours when he told the Scottish workforce to surrender.

Scotland is not being oppressed by anyone you whining coward and Scotland is British are you saying Scots. are oppressing themselves? what a clown you are.
Free school meals and indeed schools exist because of Labour as does the NHS and the welfare state. Have you got your jackboots and knuckle duster ready for the attacks on the English after the laugharendum huniliation. Your bound to be able to find some pensioners with English accents to to beat up, shoe them how tough scots. are.
Whining coward? Terry you are deranged. You conveniently omit being part of a labour cooncil that withdrew funding for the free meals project.
Jackboots and knuckle dusters - LOL The only people dafter than you are the fegs voting you in...
aanonymous - Monday, January 13, 2014 8:19:00 pm
Anyone who talks like you and refuses to come out of hiding is a whining coward. The people of Renfrewshire compared the record of labour with that of the snp on education and we saw the result. Humiliation for the snp.
