WATCH: Question Time’s Passionate Highlander

Those who wish to deny freedom for Scotland have so far failed to convince in terms of the emotional argument, so they could do worse than listen to this “passionate highlander” on Question Time last night:

Fightin’ talk…

      Radio 4 last night. London Inner city councils are giving Africans who are in their social housing, £40,000 or more each, to move out to the suburbs. They of course take the dosh and are buying up NEW housing stock and creating little Africas.

            Hi

            I have a freind called Mawengwai and he and his friend come from a long lineage of African noble people.

            He has suggested to me that due to slavery and oppression of his people
            in past history by the Imperialists that they be allowed ( by UN sanction ) to set up a Nation in Johannesburg as that is where his ancestors came from initially until they were shipped off around the globe. It is his and his ancestors spiritual home.

            He cites the State of Israel as an example and hopes to receive UN and particularly United States backing.

            Any advice would be particularly welcome.

            p.s. As a fall position Kensington and Knightsbridge could be a compromise positon.

          Try the ‘What the Romans did for us?’ analysis on that simplistic Soviet Propaganda nonsense you just wrote there.

          Many people in British colonies went from Iron age existence to 20th century in less than 100 years. All those roads, railways, schools, hospitals, running water etc didn’t build themselves you know. As for looting there wasn’t much to take and little time to do it. Ask where the wealth went after those nations became independent and why living standards and life expectancy plummeted?

      One issue has come up that the BBC has conveniently declined to comment on:
      10th July 2014 REUTERS –
      Chinese hackers broke into the computer networks of the U.S. government agency that keeps the personal information of all federal employees in March, the New York Times reported, citing senior U.S. officials.
      The hackers appeared to be targeting files on tens of thousands of employees who have applied for top-secret security clearances, the newspaper said.
      Asked about the report during annual high-level talks between the U.S. and China on Thursday, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said the “alleged incident” did not appear to have impacted sensitive information.
      “What we have heard is that it relates to an attempted intrusion. It is still being investigated by U.S. authorities,” he said. “At this point in time it does not appear to have compromised any sensitive material.”
      The hackers gained access to some of the databases of the Office of Personnel Management before federal authorities detected the threat and blocked them from the network, the newspaper said.
      It was not yet clear how far the hackers penetrated the agency’s systems, in which applicants for security clearances list their foreign contacts, previous jobs and personal information like past drug offences.

      Usual nothing to worry about statements from Obama’s administration, but I bet the US security services have their knickers in a twist.
      Methinks Chakrabarti and Liberty also do not want this generally known for their own reasons and nothing to do with the country’s security.

            Reality check… of the 20 closest friends I had at 16 there are just 8 left, 8 of them died from the results of drugs and alcohol and only 4 of natural attrition.

            For me it is simple, you get caught or are known to be dependent on a daily toke or a serious drink then you are removed from your work and you do a years ‘social work’ for the state, you lose the income you had (banker, telephonist, TV presenter, whatever) and you do a year on basic state salary, carry on afterwards and it’s 3 years keep the addiction and it’s life, you are a road sweeper or telephone sanitiser or similar.

    Superb performance from the Highlander. We need more emotion/ passion/ commitment like this to counter the Salmond vanity project. This is a family issue, not a political/ economic issue. He should be given a role by the No campaign, as he really gets it, good for him! I am Welsh by the way.

      no… he was one of the rapidly decreasing no campaign who are quite happy fighting long forgotten wars… but close their eyes to food banks or inequality or banking scams or corruption in westminster… etc etc… if he keeps on with this amount of “passion” he will be with the fishes by September so his opinion will be as forgotten as his rant come the vote

      England needs to get rid of the spongers in Scotland.

      So, why after decades of calling Scotland spongers does London now desperately need to hang on to Scotland, [e.g. Project Fear in the MSM] ?
      Only logical reason is that Scotland is worth a lot more to London than it will admit, and not just for economic reasons.

      So that for me in itself is a convincing reason to vote ‘Yes’ and disengage from the London government cesspit.

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
