I am not going to blog anymore this year and will have a three-week break. I really do continue to be flattered by the number of people who both read and comment on this blog as it really is just my method of expressing my opinions and having a good old rant. This year has been an interesting year to say the least, and a pretty depressing one politically with the most inept Westminster Government in my lifetime and an opposition that is opposition in name only barring the SNP and the Greens.
What will next year bring? More turmoil I suspect, more attacks on the most vulnerable by a Tory Government and opposition bereft of any decency amongst them. Will there be an independence referendum? I don’t think so personally but I’m no expert. I think we might see moves towards one though and the start of the fight to come with Westminster but things move so fast now so who knows. Will Donald Trump start a War? He just might and will Kezia Dugdale defect to the SNP? I hope not. Will Willie Rennie demand that someone resign? Yes and will Murdo Fraser continue to be the most disgusting and obnoxious Tory in Scotland, up there with Colonel Tankstraddler Davidson herself, yes he will. Will David Torrance find new and more interesting ways to ingratiate himself with the yoons and slag off the SNP? Yes he will and we will all continue to have a laugh at him.
I continue to be optimistic for Scotland though, especially given the state of the yoon parties at Holyrood but the media, and the BBC in particular, are a huge barrier to honest and open debate. The protections afforded the yoons is disgusting at best and dishonest in the extreme. The media in Scotland, apart from the excellent blogs like WoS, Munguins, Scotland 2018, Scot Goes Pop, Craig Murray, No to Yes, and the National in part and IScot Magazine, make RT News look like the most impartial news outlet in the world.
I hope the holidays will see an improvement in the fortunes of Dundee Football Club on the park, Neil McCann was never the man for me and some of his players have been poor but what can you do, it’s the Dees. Supporting Dundee Football Club should come with a health warning. I would love Ritchie Blackmore to record a new Rainbow album of new material but probably won’t happen, I hope Dr.Who gets back to being good again now that Stephen Moffat has thankfully left the scene and I would like to have more time to read.
So really all this leaves for this year is to wish you all a really excellent and relaxing Christmas and New Year, good health and hopefully some good news this year. Again, thanks for taking time to visit the blog, read the rants and comment. I can’t believe how insightful and knowledgeable so many of you are and I sometimes think the wrong people sit in our parliaments, they really do. Thanks.
