The SNP want to make it a criminal offence to have possession of what they deem ''imflamitary material '' so in effect book burning . Will the Bible or some other religious books  be classed as ''imflamitary materiel '' considering some of there content ? We seem to be heading towards a situation with the police raiding peoples homes to check their book shelves for books the SNP don't like with a SEVEN jail sentence for offenders    https://beta.parliam...otland-bill.pdf

A great step forward for Scotland and the SNP. Surely there will be no more rascist "We hate the English" comments now. This will of course limit the range of conversation in the Glasgow pubs.

Same type of law has been rolled out in New Zealand knowingly possessing or sharing objectionable material carries up to a 14 year jail term

By the way new Zealand has a Chief Censor and that is his actual job title "Chief Censor"

Will Scotland get a Chief Censor?

Englishmen, Irishmen and Scotsmen are pretty much "over" in a few generations, Politically speaking.

Ever wonder why Tony Blair loved blowing up Arab countries and destroying their infrastructure while inviting them to settle, High birth rate plenty of children to kill, his favorite type of game

The SNP has an image challenge ahead of it in the next few years

 

https://www.telegrap...ms-nationalism/

Nicola Sturgeon has admitted she wishes she could change her party’s name because of the “hugely, hugely problematic” connotations of the word nationalism around the world.
The First Minister said that if she could turn the clock back to the formation of the Scottish National Party in 1934, she would not have the word “national” in the name.
She made the surprising admission during a debate at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, where a Turkish author said nationalism had a very negative and ugly meaning for her, and asked if it could “ever be benign”.

 

In The US, England, Wales And possibly soon Ireland they will have one last hurrah with a "Right wing" party before that fizzles out and the one party becomes the only party once the demographic shift completes.

 

The Democrats in the US and the Labour party in the UK have made themselves as the party of immigrants while their controlled opposition the party of Nationalist/patriots whatever you want to call it.

 

the SNP needs to keep its "national" image to hold onto the old guard but it will likely seek an gradual change of name and branding to better appeal to the millions of "New Scots" they will be encouraging to settle

 

 

And YES there will be a selective process to weed out the people most likely to integrate/assimilate

A Pakistani Christian woman’s appeal to Britain for asylum has been denied because her arrival in the country may stir civil unrest, HuffPost UK has been told.

Asia Bibi, a Christian farm labourer, was released from prison in Pakistan on Wednesday after being acquitted of blasphemy. She had spent eight years on death row after an argument with a group of Muslim women in June 2009.

~

Campaigners working to secure Bibi’s move abroad said the UK government had not offered her asylum, citing security concerns.

Wilson Chowdhry, chairman of the British Pakistani Christian Association, said two countries had made firm offers of asylum, but Britain was not one of them.

“I’ve been lead to believe that the UK government had concerns that her moving to the UK would cause security concerns and unrest among certain sections of the community

^If, of course, you swallow everything that the National Secular Society and other Christian campaigners come out with.

Seems to be better (slightly) than swallowing (blindly) all the guff the SNP comes out with
