Leaving aside the entertainment value in the above image for the long-term Celtic fan, Brian ‘Bad Vibrations‘, Wilson’s argument that Sturgeon loved calling for public inquiries and so should continue to do so regardless is an odd one. She has called for an earlier one on the pandemic, than the UK Government wants to see. No doubt he agrees with their strategy to protect the PM from scrutiny. What is driving Wilson? As recently as 2016, she was calling for such an inquiry into public private finance deals under the previous administration. Previous administration, eh? Oooh was that the New Labour one … Continue reading SHOCK: Brian Wilson loves lying about Sturgeon
I never, ever, read Brian Wilson. I don’t need to any more. When I saw this with the wind farm shot, I was reminded of reading and posting on a breakthrough in turbine manufacture by a Glasgow company some time ago which could not get government funding perhaps from the Labour administration that Wilson served in. I can’t find it in the archives of the blog or after a bit of googling. Perhaps a reader can? Anyhow, I did find this: So, once more, we invented something useful first and the Union let us down. To be fair, 1887 is … Continue reading If anyone finds a UK industrial strategy please notify Brian Wilson
Opening with an attempt to seem erudite but coming across as more Araldite, Wilson just repeats the same old fibs about the responsibility for the Covid-19 deaths and tries as Miles Briggs did earlier to pin it on the SNP. The stuff about Marshal McLuhan could not be more dated and revealing. Using that old right-wing moralist and late convert to Catholicism, like Wilson’s old boss, Tony Blair, tells you just where Wilson’s mind is these days. So, apologies to those who’ve seen this already but here’s them facts again: Responsibility for the ‘failure to protect care home residents‘ can … Continue reading SHOCK: Brian Wilson pretends his fake new is not fake news
Old New Labour figure, Brian Wilson, writing again in the Scotsman clearly implies that Professor Sridhar’s views are cynically based on hopes for future grant income from the Scottish Government. His old mucker, Malcom Chisholm, the last of the good guys in Scottish Labour, has put him in his place and the prof has revealed that all her pals are, so to speak, laughing at the wee git. Wilson and Sridhar Continue reading Brian Wilson revealed as even more loathsome than we thought after senior Labour figure defends Professor Sridhar against his attacks
Wilson has typically seen the tragedies in the USA as an opportunity to somehow suggest the SNP are tainted with Trumpism. Ignoring the current SNP leader’s open contempt for the man, he has dug up the Scottish Government’s error of judgement in honouring him. Of course, he neglects to remember that Labour First Minister Jack McConnell did something similar in 2006. While googling Wilson for more to mention here, this popped up: On 1 October 2003, Brian Wilson MP called for the abolition of Scotland’s list MSPs. He said: In the Highlands & Islands, every one of these people finished … Continue reading Brian Wilson forgets something……in 2006 Scottish Labour made Trump an ambassador
Leaving aside the obvious daftness of thinking you’ve won the argument on Scottish independence because oil prices have dropped during an almost unique crisis caused by a virus, [Norway to seek domination by Sweden again after 100 years?] Wilson really shouldn’t be raising the issue of lies in 2014. On September 6th 2014, Wings labelled him a liar after he, clearly worried about something coming, made up a big fib about the cost of posting letters to Ireland: https://wingsoverscotland.com/brian-wilson-is-a-liar/ Earlier, on 7th February 2013, he had repeated the big fib that EU entry would be problematic for an independent Scotland. … Continue reading Fanatical Brian Wilson’s big lies cannot be erased from history
By yesterday, 47 749 people had been tested in Scotland or 0.87% of the population. https://www.gov.scot/publications/trends-in-number-of-people-in-hospital-with-confirmed-or-suspected-covid-19/ Across the UK 517 836 had been tested, or 0.76% of the population https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public So, the rate of testing in Scotland is 14% (87-76=11 then 11% of 76=14) higher than the UK average. Teenage SNP member, arch-Unionist, former New labour Minister for Energy, champion of nuclear power and Commander of the Order of the British Empire, Brian Wilson, is predictably upset with all this respect, even adulation, for the Scottish First Minister. The New Statesman, the Telegraph and BBC UK have all been utterly … Continue reading Scotland testing 14% more than UK average and Brian Wilson reveals SNP better prepared than UK Tories for even more
I’m sure you’re not surprised to see the venomous wee Brian Wilson join in with the media demonising of a senior SNP politician in the purdah period before an election. Notice her title in the headline? Why not Scottish Government Health Secretary? Now, maybe it’s just a coincidence, but have health secretaries in England, Wales and N Ireland been forced out by media campaigns, as Shona Robison was? Freeman is the only woman health secretary in the four parts of the UK, currently. Also, angst-ridden images of Freeman are everywhere but the other three remain invisible. As for Wilson, well: Continue reading Brian ‘SNP Bad Vibrations’ Wilson the Scotsman’s woman health secretary assassin for today
With John McLennan and Brian Wilson, Monteith represents all that is most wearisome in the Scotsman as it tries to fight-off competition from disreputable, untrained, unprofessional social media tykes such as those at TuSC. We’re averaging 10 000 views this month. Anyone have the Scotsman figures? Thankfully protected by their paywall, we can only see these puzzling opening lines: ‘You know when a belief system has become an ideology when it is seen by those who hold it as justifying any and every decision.’ Is that not back-to-front? Aren’t belief systems more comprehensive and inflexible than than ideologies? Are ISIS … Continue reading SHOCK: Brian Monteith revealed as leader of Les Brexiteurs!
By Alasdair Galloway Most commentators are of the view that if Nicola Sturgeon asks Boris Johnson for another S30 Order – precedent being the Edinburgh Agreement – the answer will be some variation of “No”, “Not now”, “Now is not the time” or “I see no demand for another referendum”. Or put short – NAW. At the same time, Nicola has made clear that a referendum must be “legal”. Interestingly, DRoss has made clear that his side would not participate in one that was illegal (does that leave him enough wriggle room, or is “illegal” the same as “not legal? … Continue reading How will Plan B B?
