Welcome to Q Research Scotland

If you are Scottish, no doubt by now you will have noticed that neither the Scottish nor UK Parliament represent you THE PEOPLE.

New "rules" are being made up daily to undermine our Legal System, effectively turning us into Government Property. We no longer are in control of our government, they no longer even pretend to act on our behalf once elected. Pretty soon they will no longer need to play along with their fake elections designed to brainwash you into believing they work for you.

The intention of this board is to provide free space for the people of this Nation to circumvent the traitorous Media, Government and Business interests arrayed against us the people, to allow us to post a collection of open-sourced and verifiable information, supplied BY and FOR the People to demonstrate their corruption and lies and take back OUR power.

UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL.

Let's take back our power collectively, no matter your racial, employment (yes, the police and military too) or religious background, we are all in this together, and will be subjected to the same tyranny if we allow the perverts and criminals in power to proceed with their plans.

Harsh Winter Storm Threatens US LNG Exports

Bloomberg December 24, 2022

By Stephen Stapczynski (Bloomberg) A winter storm battering huge swaths of the US threatens to temporarily disrupt exports of liquefied natural gas from the Gulf Coast, exacerbating the global fuel crunch.

The arctic front, expected to continue for several days, is triggering warnings and advisories stretching from Maine to the Gulf of Mexico. The US is a major LNG exporter and a key supplier to Europe, which means port disruptions could have a global impact.

Subfreezing temperatures and high winds through Dec. 26 may cause delays or suspension to pilot services for the Sabine-Neches Waterway in Texas, according to notices from Moran Shipping. The waterway services the Sabine Pass terminal, the largest US LNG export facility.

Pilots for the port of Corpus Christi, who are responsible for docking vessels in the southern Texas region, have suspended boarding vessels due to the cold, according to Moran. That may affect ship traffic to the Corpus Christi LNG export facility.

Cheniere Energy Inc., operator of the Sabine Pass and Corpus Christi terminals, said that it always prepares for and responds to extreme weather to safely manage operations. The company didn’t comment on the current operations of the facilities.

Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry accused of ignoring Operation Planet and evidence of establishment paedophile ring

EXCLUSIVE: Lawyer John Halley says there was "no excuse" for the inquiry to not include an investigation into the infamous Operation Planet scandal from the 1990s claiming the 'rent boys' involved were victims of child trafficking

ByJohn GloverTrainee reporter

28 DEC 2022

The Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry has been accused of ignoring evidence of an establishment paedophile ring operating in the 1990s.

Advocate and part-time sheriff John Halley was appointed as a lead junior counsel to the public inquiry in 2015 by Scottish Government minister Angela Constance. He says his remit included the investigation of "child trafficking through prostitution of children in care in Scotland".

Mr Halley then battled cancer for several years before handing a detailed legal "Note" to chair Lady Smith on April 1, 2019. He says he was then told that he had strayed beyond his remit and had included material he "ought not to have been working on".

The Scottish Daily Express has seen his bombshell Note and it threatens to blow the lid off multiple child abuse scandals that could reach the very top of British society.

In it, Mr Halley calls on the inquiry to look at information that is already in the public domain about a police investigation from the 1990s called Operation Planet, claiming there is "no excuse" for choosing not too.

Operation Planet was launched after officers discovered a 16-year-old boy in a flat in central Edinburgh who had been held over a period of 10 days and drugged and repeatedly raped by a number of men, said to include some influential public figures.

The investigation initially resulted in 57 charges against 10 men, later reduced to 10 charges against five men whose not guilty pleas were accepted by a court in February 1991.

It led to claims of an establishment paedophile ring that is said to have operated over several decades and to have included, at one time or another, well-known TV personalities, judges, lawyers and senior police officers.

Mr Halley analysed a 1993 report written by Lord Nimmo Smith that looked into the Planet investigation and the events that followed called 'Allegations of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice'.

Controversially, by modern standards at least, it dismissed the young people involved – many of whom were children in care – as 'rent boys' and said they were not being abused because they were receiving payment.

Mr Halley said the young people were in fact part of a child trafficking network and called on the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry to re-investigate the Operation Planet probe.

He noted that the criminal cases were dropped after the Crown accepted that sex had been consensual between the complainers and the accused.

"However, that view may be open to question," Mr Halley states. "The extent of the real consent is likely to have been consent to payment. The circumstances appear to point to exploitation through prostitution. This may be trafficking of children in care.

"Thorough investigations should be carried out with or without applications to the SCAI, standing the insidious nature of the problem, and the systematic criminalisation of the victims."

'Crystal clear example of child trafficking in Scotland'

He goes on to discuss the 16-year-old boy – known as M – who was "taken from a care home by a group of men" and states: "M was drugged and raped. He was kidnapped for 10 days. This is a crystal clear, proved beyond reasonable doubt, example of child trafficking in Scotland."

M was held at a property Palmerston Place in Edinburgh's West End owned by Tam Paton, manager of the Bay City Rollers. Although Paton was already a convicted paedophile by the time the report was complied in 1993, the report does not mention his ownership of the property.

Mr Halley adds: "However, there is a striking and very concerning aspect of the material in the report, for present purposes. The concern is that there appears to be little or no active consideration given to the need to protect children in the care system who are at risk of exploitation through prostitution.

"In fact, the accepted views and policies highlighted in the report point to a contrary prevalent attitude which appears to have clearly fostered and encouraged exploitation of young people in care through prostitution. On a critical reading of the report, it appears to intentionally ignore blatant child trafficking."

He describes the original incident as the "clearest record of trafficking of a child in care" and argues that the "abuse of M, and the perpetrators of that abuse, whether or not they were convicted of offences at the time (i.e. even if they were acquitted), require to be investigated by the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry".

Adding: "It is certain fact for the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry which has been investigated, prosecuted (to some extent) and reconsidered (albeit for different purposes) in a publicly available report commissioned by the Lord Advocate. There is no reason, and no excuse available, for the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry to decline to consider this.

"This publicly known and investigated case of child trafficking has apparently been ignored from the perspective of child welfare concerns. Prima facie, that may point to failures in various systems, including the legal system at the very highest level.

"But it is not just the procedures in the care system that require to be considered here. Crown Office procedures, the practice of lawyers and the operation of judges and the courts all feature. The failure to identify the problem and call it what it is – child trafficking - and to investigate and report from a welfare perspective appears as endemic as it is damning."

'I was instructed and I did investigate'

Mr Halley continues: "It must be viewed as obviously wrong for the SCAI to ignore the sexual exploitation of rent boys who were in care because money had changed hands (i.e. because their consent was being paid for). The same attitude was and is unacceptable in respect of young women in care. Such situations must be investigated, identified and properly labelled as child trafficking through prostitution.

"It is right and proper, for the sake of public confidence in the interests of justice, that SCAI should fully and properly investigate matters in which the same Crown Office policy operated where there are factual allegations (not necessarily made by the complainers) and they fall within the [Terms of Reference]."

Mr Halley's role in investigating historic child abuse was defined by Lady Smith at a meeting in September 2016 and he was diagnosed with bowel cancer the following month, meaning that he has been unable to return to work.

Nevertheless, he was able to compile his 17,500 Note for Lady Smith. However, after submitting his report, she informed him through the secretary(Daughter of Lord Cullen of 100 year cover up fame)of the inquiry that it included material he "ought not to have been working on".

He said: "I refute that entirely. I was instructed and I did investigate and report. The Note sets out a summary of my remit, important facts, allegations inferences and sources for investigation by the SCAI."

A spokesman for the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry said: "The Inquiry is engaged in extensive investigations which are ongoing. All information we become aware of, related to the abuse of children in care, is considered as part of the work of the Inquiry."

Doctors ask health board to declare major incident

30 December 2022

A&E doctors have urged NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde to declare a major incident amid "grave concerns" over patient safety, the BBC understands.

Staff working at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital said the A&E department continued to be overwhelmed.

NHS GGC, which declined the move, said it was taking action to support staff.

It comes as both NHS Borders and NHS Grampian issued a plea to staff on leave to come into work, due to "extreme pressure" at hospitals.

With an increase in flu and respiratory viruses across Scotland, health boards have asked the public only to attend A&E if it is urgent or life threatening.

Flu rates in Scotland at highest level since 2017

A series of messages seen by the BBC show a request from A&E consultants in Glasgow to declare a major incident was declined by NHS GGC on Thursday.

They asked for it to be called so extra resources could be diverted to the department.

A major incident is declared when the the health of the community is under serious threat.

Special measures would be put in place to assist the demand on the health service, such as extra resources to manage the volume of patients.

The messages said every space in the emergency department was occupied by patients waiting for a bed in the hospital, with no resuscitation beds and an eight-hour delay for ambulances offloading patients.

'Substandard care'

"We are now unable to provide safe critical care," read one of the messages.

Another read: "This is without any doubt the worst shift I've worked, and I've never been more convinced of real patient harm due to overcrowding and exit block."

Staff said a combination of issues meant critically-ill patients received "substandard care both clinically and from [a] humanitarian perspective".

The health board was later asked to reconsider calling a major incident, which it again declined.

A spokesperson for NHS GGC said: "We have an escalation policy that would allow us to declare any major incidents and we closely monitor the safety of our departments and patients at all times and keep this under close review.

"Our services, like the whole of Scotland, are facing major pressures including significant Covid, flu and norovirus cases and our staff are doing all they can to meet this demand."

Royal Hospital for Sick Children at Little France, Edinburgh

Both NHS Borders and NHS Grampian have put out an urgent call for any staff on leave to come into work.

NHS Grampian said it was facing "an extreme level of pressure" due to the number of acutely ill patients arriving at hospital and difficulties in discharging patients to the community .

NHS Borders also said its services were under "extreme pressure" and it had higher than normal staff sickness levels due to Covid and flu.

Meanwhile, NHS Lothian said the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, St John's Hospital, the Western General Hospital and the Royal Hospital for Children and Young People were all at full capacity.

The health board said high levels of respiratory viruses in Lothian was heaping extra pressure on its hospitals

'Wear a mask'

Dona Milne, NHS Lothian director of public health, said: "We have now reached extraordinary levels of flu in Scotland that we haven't seen for many years.

"Although they can be mild infections for many, it can be extremely serious for some people causing them to require urgent hospital treatment.

"We are asking anyone who has cold or flu like symptoms to help limit the spread of infection. Stay at home if you feel unwell. And if you do have to go out, please wear a mask."

Scotland recorded its worst ever performance times at A&E in the week up to 18 December, with 55% of patients seen within the government target of 4 hours.

This is down 7.4% compared to the previous week.

At the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, just 45% of patients were seen within four hours.

A total 1,821 patients spent more than 12 hours in emergency departments across Scotland.

UK Government set to mount unprecedented legal challenge to block SNP's gender bill

The Tories are poised to lodge a Section 35 Order in an attempt to veto the Gender Recognition Reform Bill, which passed in Holyrood by 86 to 39.

ByJohn Ferguson

1 JAN 2023

The UK Government is set to mount an unprecedented legal challenge to block Nicola Sturgeon’s controversial gender reforms. The Sunday Mail has learned that ministers will more likely than not lodge a Section 35 Order in an attempt to veto the legislation within weeks.

The mechanism has never been used but effectively gives the UK Government a right to block laws produced by the Scottish Parliament from gaining royal assent on the grounds they adversely affect UK statutes. The move would almost certainly result in a Supreme Court showdown between First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and Prime Minister Rishi Sunak.

A senior UK Government source said: “Ministers across the UK Government have very serious concerns about the SNP’s gender recognition bill. Lawyers and officials are still assessing the potential impact of the bill on the Equalities Act and other UK-wide legislation and considering the implications for prisons and schools.

“Obviously any action by the UK Government would have to be consistent with the devolution settlement but using a Section 35 Order, as set out in the Scotland Act, to prevent the Bill going for royal assent is absolutely on the table.”

Earlier this month the Scottish Parliament voted to make it possible for people to legally change their gender without a medical assessment, faster, and at the age of 16 rather than 18. While many MSPs say it advances the trans community, feminists fear for women’s rights and access to single sex spaces.

A UK Government challenge to the legislation revolves around how the new bill will impact women and girls’ rights in prisons and schools. The fear is that predatory men who claim to be trans to more easily gain a Gender Recognition Certificate in Scotland can then use it to exploit the Equalities Act in other parts of the UK.

The Scottish Parliament overwhelmingly voted in favour of the Gender Recognition Reform Bill by 86 to 39. But Scottish Secretary Alister Jack announced less than an hour later that the UK Government would consider using powers under the Scotland Act to prevent it becoming law.

The UK Government has a four-week period to review any bill agreed by MSPs before it moves to royal assent. A Section 35 allows the Scottish Secretary to lay an order essentially vetoing it.

It acknowledges the legislation is devolved but blocks its progress on the grounds it could have an adverse impact on legislation reserved to the UK.

A Scottish Government spokeswoman made clear any attempt to block the bill would be vigorously opposed.

I don't know why but it's very common these days for doctor's surgeries to send text messages saying they have a shortage of Drs leading to a shortage of appointments or several other excuses for not accepting new appointments for the day….I get 2 or 3 a week since convid began.

What is going on behind the scenes? Are others experiencing this?

There is a darkness in Edinburgh of that there is no mistake.

Should they hang? That's a question that will have to be answered by everyone collectively when the full facts are known. I am compelled to consider …

Matthew 7:1-3

7 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

I'm not perfect, few are.

I strongly suspect that few would plan to kill off much of society just to retain control over everyone else that remained. If you were to hang everyone that collaborated to any degree we might find ourselves acting out the plan to reduce the world population to 500 million. All of us are responsible for the state of the world, most of us paid for it through taxation without questioning where the recompense for their blood, sweat and tears was spent while voting for a whole succession of CUNTS to replenish those who went before. None of us are blameless.

In these British Isles we have a king who is not a king, who's mother was a queen, who wasn't really a queen. How far back beyond her does the deception go?

I know one thing. Here in this land everyone operates under the crown. If there is no legitimate crown then nobody has any legitimate authority. We won't fix these lands, broken and battered, by the machinations of bastard bureaucrats, unless first we address the root of the deception and appoint a true monarch. We are in a constitutional crisis.

We need someone in charge that understands the remit and that isn't ever going to be Charles or his offspring. The role is one of service to the people, not dictatorial rule, nor subservience to wealthy interests/corporations.

Whether you are a Monarchist or not that is the basis for our law, nothing can operate without a Crown. It may be that the people want to go to a Republican model of government in the future but that can only be decided by plebiscite and that can only be determined in law as it stands, you cannot remove the necessity of a crown in the meantime if you are to remain lawful. We need to make the appointment ( on a temporary basis) and then through him/her determine how we go forward with or without them at the helm.

The crown is the representative of the people, the servant who's primary function is to uphold the constitution without fear or favour and protect the rights of all.

Just my 2 bob's worth.

Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry judge had no power to ban media, court rules

Published

23 February 2022

By Andrew Picken

BBC Scotland News

A senior judge was acting beyond her powers to prevent the BBC from fully reporting a £2.6m legal claim against Scotland's child abuse inquiry, an appeal court has ruled.

Lady Smith, chairwoman of the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry (SCAI), passed orders stopping detail of an employment tribunal claim being reported.

A judicial review of the orders brought by the BBC backed Lady Smith's move.

But the appeal court has now ruled she "had no power" to make the orders.

The SCAI said it was considering its position in light of the court's decision but added the restriction orders were issued to "prevent the imminent disclosure of confidential inquiry information into the public domain".

The £2.6m employment tribunal claim - alleging discrimination, harassment and victimisation - was brought against the SCAI and its chairwoman in July 2019 by the inquiry's former lead junior counsel, John Halley.

An order restricting reporting detail of the claim, which was later dropped by Mr Halley, was issued by the SCAI and then challenged by the BBC, first through a judicial review and then an appeal of that review decision.

The Court of Session appeal opinion, delivered by Lord Carloway, said Mr Halley's claim contained allegations of discrimination but did not relate to the proceedings of the inquiry so "it follows that the respondent had no power to make the restriction orders".

The appeal opinion also said the court "was not persuaded that any of the issues raised in the present proceedings are academic in the sense that it would be inappropriate for the court to address them".

It further states the BBC's petition "raises an important point about the powers of those chairing public inquiries to restrict publication of material which is the subject of other legal proceedings".

The appeal opinion rejected any suggestion of apparent bias on the part of Lady Smith, stating the restriction orders were made "in the context of the proper administration of the inquiry" and not "for the benefit of the respondent personally".

The opinion also pointed out it would have been open to the SCAI to make an application to the employment tribunal to restrict publication of Mr Halley's claim and response documents, rather than issuing its own media restriction orders.

'Considering our position'

A spokeswoman for the SCAI said the restriction orders were issued to "prevent the imminent disclosure of confidential inquiry information into the public domain and, importantly, protect the anonymity of vulnerable individuals who engage with the inquiry".

She added: "They were issued by the chair under statutory powers that, at the time, she understood were available to her.

"The allegations in the employment tribunal proceedings were withdrawn, and the claim was dismissed.

"We are carefully considering our position in light of the court's decision."

With all the shill messaging, negative press, programmed bots, and disinformation made us to live in fear/anger, your message, anon, has been a refreshing text. I do agree with you completely. Who hasn't sinned/erred in their lifetime ?

Plus, I do completely agree we all have a part in this, I don't know who still doesn't accept it anymore. Yet, I do feel like we can overcome that with some truths. Religions divide anon, that's a fact, its just a label. Yes we are "entitled to our opinions", but that's cause opinions were formed due to manipulated and hidden facts. Again, not judging any individual in particular, just stating the situation. As you say, if we desire harm to others, that comes back…. or as a wise person said not too long ago "can't wish death on nobody, cause they might just come back for you."

Also, this I state openly to the "GF" as they have been "leading this change", although I don't agree "all the time" with hm, a choice in messaging, they have led us in a positive way.

Furthermore, there is a group that has been targeted alot….yeah, that could change in a heart beat…. specially since, well, there's those that have acted kindly and with a huge heart, and then there's those heartless individuals, but still can't judge. Also, BM and B, are a bitch….and that….well….Frank Gore….

again, not judging….the people….just the situation…. theres a group, that just wants absolute power…there I'm Not agreeing at all….with how things were handled. Something tells me things could be better….specially for the innercities, or Haiti, Africa.

I think everybody deserves a chance, or 2 or 3, 4, as long as there's progress… as you say, forgiving is divine, and erring is human. AI there's absolutely good AI, and then there's the misuse of AI for example. It's how we do things with our heart, or no? Plus, birds sing in cages, not on land, and not flying….unless they are seagulls, but seagulls are ugly as fuck. There's a lot of birds that are way more pretty than fucking seagulls……

truths and what happened/has happened….so much that…what are we gonna get stuck in the past stuff, like with the "slavery" topic, or are we going to progress? Or as with the fake "holohoax" and the made up number of victims….not saying people didn't die….but the European Census of 1937 has (scrubbed but probably still attainable) 1/2 of the population that the narrative states (of jewish faith based individuals)….. or even the hashtag NeverForget…made up to keep people plugged, in hate and fear…anger….

I didn't even know christopher reeves died…. or something like that….

So yes, erring is human, forgiving divine. Sorry, I am, Interrupting dinner is a human mistake….but anyway…. i just think thateres things that can change, a few that can improve, and a thing that probably will stay the same….

Again, yes, some stuff….deep….really deep….but other stuff…..like S.O. or Human Trafficking….again not towards judgement of one person….put the situation….gotta change……WITH….

>The SCAI said it was considering its position in light of the court's decision but added the restriction orders were issued to "prevent the imminent disclosure of confidential inquiry information into the public domain".

To prevent the imminent disclosure of a raft of senior establishment figures involved in child abuse and the subsequent cover up of it. Remember this one "personally" requested the daughter of Lord Cullen as her personal secret-ary. Lord Cullen using his position on a previous inquiry to cover up all the evidence for 100 years.

>>18076036

>It further states the BBC's petition "raises an important point about the powers of those chairing public inquiries to restrict publication of material which is the subject of other legal proceedings".

But doesn't at all raise any important points about the "powers" of a chair of a public inquiry being able to retain information from the public about the inquiry itself.It's not a public inquiry if information is prevented from reaching the public.

>>18076036

Your behaviour was unlawful but there's no wrong done here

Struggling to wrap my head round that one.

"in the context of the proper administration of the inquiry"so the proper administration of the inquiry is "unlawful"?

>>18076036

>she "had no power" to make the orders.

>>18076036

>The opinion also pointed out it would have been open to the SCAI to make an application to the employment tribunal to restrict publication of Mr Halley's claim and response documents, rather than issuing its own media restriction orders.

Translated means…

You can't do it that way but you can do it this way. A nod to Smith on how to "prevent the imminent disclosure of confidential inquiry information into the public domain".

It's not just a nod to tell her how to suppress John Halley's "note" to her pointing out the establishment villains…..more important than that it eats up time. They are using the same tactics to deal with Halley that they have used so successfully to silence victims; they are usingTIMEto contain him. I've said it many times……."Time is their greatest ally" waste enough of it and both plaintiff and respondent/defendant die off without a word spoken in truth.

>>18076036

>A spokeswoman for the SCAI said the restriction orders were issued to "prevent the imminent disclosure of confidential inquiry information into the public domain and, importantly, protect the anonymity of vulnerable individuals who engage with the inquiry".

We know that the "anonymity" they are trying to protect are senior figures in all the high places of government. We know the "vulnerable individuals who engage with the inquiry" are from among their own ranks, not the victims of abuse. They are protecting the abusers not the abused.

>>18076036

>"We are carefully considering our position in light of the court's decision."

We'll take your advice on board and apply to the employment tribunal forthwith.

Same.

Surely we progress? Lots of lies behind the 2nd WW; all of history is a lie. When the truth comes out people will #neverforget the lies or the liars. I've no hate, little fear but lots of anger from time to time for the complicity of my fellow man in all of this and few of them understand how.

The situation has to change. We can no longer have people judge us and incarcerate us that are bigger criminals than those they are jailing. Justice has to be restored.

line

30 May 2016 - Third panel member Glenn Houston supports Susan O'Brien

Prof Lamb is a respected academic. The public should know the truth. Having followed the Australia Royal Commission and the Scottish Inquiry. Scottish Inquiry is political and corrupted in my view. Only politically weak get investigated. The Crown Office should be investigated.

John responded to the above tweet. The guy is absolutely correct, the Crown Office should be investigated. The whole system needs investigated. The public don't know the truth because everything is covered up from above. The chair of the SCAI tried to cover it up using her position on a supposedly "public" inquiry to block John's pursuit of justice for his sacking from the inquiry. Government secrecy is for covering up corruption. Since when did an employee get to withhold information from the employer?You're the employer, don't take this pish

Ex-chief prosecutor Lord Hardie ‘should have told police about sex abuse’

A former head of Scotland’s prosecution service who went on to become a judge has been lambasted for not speaking to the police when he learnt that a colleague had molested the two daughters of another advocate.

The girls’ mother said Lord Hardie, previously Andrew Hardie QC, should have called the police when her former husband told him John Watt had sexually abused both his daughters while they were in bed. Hardie was leader, or dean, of the Faculty of Advocates from 1994 to 1997, before becoming lord advocate in Tony Blair’s Labour government in 1997, responsible for all prosecutions in Scotland.

MYSTERY PROBE Cops again quiz fraudster who forged former Lord Advocate Andrew Hardie’s signature to buy a car 20 years ago

Jamie Coltart questioned two decades after twice using the lawman's chequebook to pay £325 for the motor

BY DOUGLAS WALKER

8 Jan 2017

COPS have again quizzed a fraudster who forged a top judge’s signature to buy a car 20 years ago.

Jamie Coltart was questioned by detectives as part of a mystery probe two decades after twice using former Lord Advocate Andrew Hardie’s chequebook to pay £325 for the motor.

A police source said yesterday: “Numerous interviews have been conducted at various police stations including Linlithgow.

They added: “It’s all part of an ongoing inquiry.”

Coltart was 16 and living in a children’s home at the time of the fraud in May 1996.

He used the cheques to buy a car from James Hawthorn in North Berwick, East Lothian.

The crime came to light when cops in England needed to trace the motor’s owner and discovered dodgy cheques had bought it.

A court heard Lord Hardie — then Dean of the Faculty of Advocates — had never met Coltart or knew who he was.

He also said he hadn’t realised his cheques or card were missing.

Coltart claimed he got them from a mystery pal and denied faking the signature twice.

He changed his plea to guilty at Edinburgh Sheriff Court in February 1997. But the fraudster dodged being jailed or fined by Sheriff Andrew Bell.

The Crown also accepted his denial to using Lord Hardie’s Visa card to buy £200 worth of goods from petrol stations.

Coltart’s lawyer Alex Lafferty said in court: “He is remorseful.”

Lord Hardie was due to be called as a witness but was not needed. He later said: “I understand it’s a guilty plea. I have no further comment.”

Lord Hardie, 70, was Scotland’s top law officer from 1997 to 2000.

The life peer from Edinburgh — known as Baron Hardie of Blackford — has been married to Catherine for 45 years. The couple have three children.

Police last night refused to discuss the current inquiry. They said: “This is not something we will be commenting on.”

Both Lord Hardie and Coltart declined to comment.

Bullshit. There would be less corruption is those at the top were required to be less corrupt.

Yes John, but if you extrapolate on that thought … wouldn't there be "less corruption" if there wasmore punishment?

Think of how many people these miserable cunts have sentenced over their life times? Could some of them be overturned now? I don't know, but would assume a good possibility.

Why would SG want to undermine an independent child abuse inquiry? Well, recent news stories might provide some explanation of the apparent desire to cover up. Shame on the Scottish Government.

Yes they do.There must be plenty of them with things to hide. The whole system is a festering sore.

Many, many questions to be asked about this. The Lord President of the Court of Session, the Lord Advocate (x2, Wolffe, QC, and Bain, QC), and the Dean of Faculty (x2, Jackson, QC, and Dunlop, QC), have had my Note for SCAI dated 1 April 2019, for in excess of three years each.*(see 4 for full thread)

Yes it seems the dam is breaking with regard to Hardie.

The stories about Hardy are hitting the headlines the week in between the guilty verdict of John Watt QC and his sentencing to 10 years 2 weeks later on just this very day August 8th 2022.

I had posted the story of John Watt several times on earlier boards and as soon as it went up the boards filled up with shite/spam. I posted it on the Scottish midnight riders board after a couple of failures…eventually got them on later board.

Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry warned Scotland may have a 'problem' similar to the scale of Rotherham scandal

Exclusive: A detailed legal note to the inquiry explains that exploitation of young people in care in Scotland could be similar to what happened to the Rotherham scandal and the inquiry should try to find Scottish survivors.

News

ByJohn Glover

8 JAN 2023

The Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry has been warned Scotland could hide similar "problems" to the Rotherham child sexual exploitation scandal. It heard it would be "delusional" to think it did not "occur in Scotland" with the scale being unknown.

The comments were made by advocate and part-time sheriff John Halley, whho was appointed as a lead junior counsel to the public inquiry in 2015 by "Ministerial determination". He says his remit included the investigation of "child trafficking through prostitution of children in care in Scotland".

Mr Halley then battled cancer for several years before handing a detailed legal "note" to chair Lady Smith on April 1, 2019.

The Scottish Daily Express has seen his bombshell document, which we revealed earlier claimed the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry had 'ignored' evidence of an establishment paedophile ring operating in the 1990s.

In the note, Mr Halley calls on the inquiry to use its resources to call for a report into the scale of child trafficking by prostitution in Scotland as there has been "virtually no work done" that he was aware of to gather and assess meaningful data in relation to prostitution, or trafficking, of girls and young women in care in Scotland.

He added that the Rotherham experience "ought to inform that the problem is likely to be much more prevalent for girls in care than for boys".

He adds that a survivor claims she has details of Scottish cases of child trafficking by prostitution and ends the section stating that the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry "should be anxious to investigate".

The note says: "Sexual exploitation, through prostitution and child trafficking, of children and young people in care (up to age 18) is an issue that is self-evidently at the very most serious and worrying end of the spectrum of child abuse that this Inquiry ought to be dealing with, insofar as relevant to the Terms of Reference."

A children's safeguarding review in 1997 by Roger Kent voiced "great concerns" on the issue and estimated at the time there were about 10,000 young people being cared for away from home in Scotland with 5,000 thought to be accommodated at boarding schools, 2,500 in foster care and 2,500 in residential care.

The report notes that young people in care were able to get a Saturday job or do paper rounds noting that if they needed more money to cover a drug habit or to finance themselves when they ran away, "prostitution may appear superficially to be an easy option."

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Exploitation in Rotherham from 1997 - 2013 stated that there "has been relatively low reporting of sexual exploitation of young males, with the exception of the police operation and a criminal conviction in 2007 of an offender who abused over 80 boys and young men".

"Over the years, this was identified at inter-agency meetings and in child sexual exploitation plans as an issue that required attention in Rotherham. That continues to be the case today," it added.

Mr Halley analysed a 1993 report written by Lord Nimmo Smith that looked into the Planet investigation and the events that followed called 'Allegations of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice'.

He wrote in the note: "It is delusional to think that such problems do not occur in Scotland. The Nimmo Smith Report, among other materials, informs that such problems do occur in Scotland. The numbers and even the scale of the problems might be different.

"The Nimmo Smith Report was commissioned for purposes other than to identify children and young people in the care system who were at risk… A similar operation has not been embarked upon, for any purposes, in relation to girls. Yet the Rotherham experience ought to inform that the problem is likely to be much more prevalent for girls in care than for boys.

"There are likely to be cases of exploitation of young people and children in care who will not themselves make applications to the SCAI.

"That is known from other inquiries such as that carried out in relation to the exploitation of children in Rotherham. Manifestly, that does not relieve the SCAI of the duty and responsibility to fearlessly and thoroughly search for and investigate these cases."

A survivor in care "asserts that she has details of Scottish cases of child trafficking by prostitution" in relation to women.

In 2014, Police Scotland launched a probe similar to the one in Rotherham investigating the sexual exploitation of vulnerable children in Scotland by men from ethnic minorities.

The advocate adds that "little research" has been done in Scotland into the involvement of children in care in prostitution, although some English studies have recently shown under-16s of both sexes going out from residential care units to work as prostitutes.

However, he notes the Scottish Government-funded research facility Centre for Excellence for Children's Care (CELCIS) at Strathclyde University could be asked by the SCAI to carry out the research to help with the inquiry or other academics.

Mr Halley claims the research appears to have "largely ignored" or "not followed up" adding that "the problem of trafficking of children in the care system through prostitution appears to have been ignored, as a genus of child abuse in Scotland which is worthy of thorough investigation, by the SCAI to date."

He adds: "The issue is never tackled head-on, as far as I have seen thus far, in a subsequent report or series of reports leading to the establishment of the present Inquiry. This is surprising given the acute nature of the subject within the context of any consideration of the care system or child abuse in general."

He concluded: "The detail set out above provides analysis and examples which point to a number of very grave problems in relation to the policy and practice of the courts, COPFS, social work services, the police, the Faculty of Advocates and every other part of the systems which ought to have been configured to protect children in care who have been trafficked through involvement in prostitution.

"The cases detailed above are mere examples of cases in which multiple failures by state and non-state institutions (including the courts) to protect children in care in Scotland can be seen. There are likely to be many, many more."

A spokesperson for the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry said: “The Inquiry is engaged in extensive investigations which are ongoing. All information we become aware of, related to the abuse of children in care, is considered as part of the work of the Inquiry."

Popular Glasgow McDonald's targeted by Afghan men looking to exploit children, ex-cop claims

Exclusive: Police officers were asked to compile data of missing people who turned up with new items or with older men as part of the operation while looking out for any reference to the McDonald's in the Four Corners.

A popular Glasgow McDonald's was targeted by Afghan men looking to groom children, an ex-cop has claimed.

The former Police Scotland officer alleges that bobbies were told to "watch out for any reference" to the Jamaica Street McDonald's at the famous Four Corners as "intelligence from elsewhere" indicated that "males from Afghanistan" were "using it as a base" to exploit children in care.

The former cop told the Scottish Daily Express that they were based "primarily outside" and when it started to rain they would move to the Hielanman's Umbrella under Glasgow Central railway station. It is thought they would approach vulnerable-looking children with an aim of exploiting them.

The former officer was part of Operation Dash, a broader attempt to root out child sexual exploitation across the Strathclyde police area working in partnership with charity Barnardo's Scotland to gather intelligence.

Police have carried out two investigations into grooming gangs in and around Scotland's largest city, Operation Cotswold and Operation Dash.

Operation Cotswold was set up in 2011 and focused on a group of Middle Eastern asylum seekers in the north of the city. At least 26 potential victims were identified and files were sent to the procurator fiscal.

Police Scotland ended Operation Dash almost two years after it started with 27 offenders reported to the procurator fiscal. One culprit, 20-year-old Afghan asylum seeker Javaid Akhond, was jailed for six years for preying on young girls.

The officer was part of the team providing research for CID to investigate concentrating on children in care, which lasted about three or four months.

He told the Scottish Daily Express: "We concentrated on children in care. Each division had cops checking files for evidence of grooming, such as missing person reports which mentioned the missing person had returned home with new clothes, or other gifts, or any disclosures of being with older men, or being dropped off by older men.

"We found a report that mentioned a girl who had been in care, had invited some other girls from a Paisley care home to a party in Clydebank, where there were older men.

"There was no more detail than that, so we passed it on for further enquiry to the DCs who were part of the next phase, which was to make further enquiry into what we found. I did not find out what the result was.

"I also remember being told to watch out for any reference to the McDonald's in Glasgow at the junction of Argyle Street and Jamaica Street, as there was intelligence from elsewhere that males from Afghanistan were using it as a base.

"We did not find anything specific about that. The problem we ran into, was the lack of detail in the reports, which may just say 'traced in city centre', but did not say where or what the missing person was doing, or who she was with."

The information was then passed over to the CID team based out of the Baird Street police office and fed from a machine. The division would never hear back as it was "typical of CID operations". He added: "Any uniform cops brought in to assist were kept out of the loop as much as possible."

In 2020, it was reported that Police Scotland took down a large gang of asylum seekers from the Kurdish, Afghani, Egyptian, Moroccan, Turkish, Pakistani and Iraqi communities.

The gang was reported to have preyed on the young girls and had at least 44 victims, including six youngsters who were all known to each other.

Officers identified 55 suspected members of the group with 46 positively identified and one victim believed to have been abused by 28 men with another linked to 23

Police have said that 19 members were reported to the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal, but it's unknown how many were convicted

Glasgow city centre - including the main entrance to Central Station along with sections of Hope Street, Union Street and St Vincent Street - has topped the list of the worst neighbourhoods for crime in Scotland.

The third-placed area is just to the south including the 'Four Corners', the Hielanman's Umbrella and parts of the Broomielaw.

Campaigner and survivor of historical abuse Dave Sharpe said: "I've met young rent boys and prostitutes in Edinburgh and Glasgow. I met a guy in Glasgow city mission in 2018 and he was fearful for his life as he was a survivor of abuse and I met the police who confirmed what I was saying.

"These were all kids who were in care. Nothing has changed and nothing is being done because no one cares and too many people are exploiting our children. I have spoken to police officers who have told me they know when they arrest young boys and girls they are throwing them into the wolves cage in these care homes and young offenders institutions where they will continue to be abused until they take their own life.

"The most shocking thing was the young kids aged 16, 17, 18, 19 who were in care and had just run away and no one came looking for them. Almost all of these kids were being sexually abused in care and when they left the abusers just found them and carried on abusing them. What really hurt me the most was that many of these kids were in trouble with the police.

"Many were on bail and knew that if they got in trouble again they were guaranteed to go to prison or a young offenders institution. The abusers knew this and they would just pass these kids around each other. Many many thousands of these kids are the people who fled to London. Nothing has changed in decades.

"I was kicked out of the home in April 1976 and within weeks I was on the streets of London and I stayed there for years and there was never a time when there weren't hundreds of Scottish children who very quickly pimped out. I still have nightmares about lots of my friends getting taken away in big flash jags and I never saw them again. I have lived with that nightmare my whole life."

Police Scotland have been approached for comment.

MSPs to get a pay rise in April it has been confirmed

10th January

MSPs are to get a pay rise, it has been confirmed.

The increase of 1.5% in April will give MSPs an extra £1000 a year, taking their annual salaries to £67,661.

Ministerial salaries will also increase by 1.5%.

For a number of years, Scottish Government Ministers have declined to accept pay increases. 

Currently, cabinet secretaries are paid extra on top of their MSP pay.

Nicola Sturgeon, The First Minister is paid £96,567 on top of her MSP salary taking the total to £163,229.

If she takes the increase it would take her pay to £165,676.

Cabinet Secretaries are paid £50,097 on top of the MSP salary taking their total to £116,759.

If they accept the rise they will earn £118,510.

Holyrood annually increases MSP pay in accordance with the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE) for the average of full-time public sector workers in Scotland. 

The Scottish Parliament said this means MSPs don’t vote on their pay rate, and the increase they receive reflects public sector pay rises in Scotland.

Satanic child abuse ring shut victims in oven, forced them to kill animals and filmed themselves gang raping them, court hears

A total of 11 people have been accused of being members of a paedophile ring

The group is alleged to have abused children in Glasgow over course of 10 years

It is claimed members of the group raped and abused three young children

Glasgow High Court heard the children were forced to take part in witchcraft too

By Matthew Lodge For Mailonline

Published: 14:30 EST, 6 January 2023 | Updated: 14:30 EST, 6 January 2023

A satanic child abuse ring tortured children by putting them in an oven, forcing them to kill animals and gang raping them, a court has heard.

Seven men and four women are accused of abusing three young children over the course of 10 years in Glasgow which saw them attempt to 'call on spirits and demons'. 

Two girls - one of whom was allegedly shut in a microwave, fridge, oven and freezer in an attempted to kill her - and one boy were forced to kill animals as well as being sexually abused by the group, it is claimed.

Members of the group have been charged with 43 offences with among the most serious being attempted murder and rape of young children.

Iain Owens, 44, Elaine Lannery, 38, Lesley Williams, 41, Paul Brannan, 40, Marianne Gallagher, 38, Scott Forbes, 49, Barry Watson, 46, Mark Carr, 49, Richard Gachagan, 45, Leona Laing, 50, and John Clark, 46, all deny the offences.

Four other people alleged to have been involved in the ring -  Maureen Goudie, Steven McHendrie, Robert Brown, James McLean and Douglas Gachagan - have since died, according to court papers.

The High Court in Glasgow was told on Friday that the offences took place between January 2010 and March 2020 at a number of addresses in the city.

The group are alleged to have run a wheelchair over the legs of one of the girls, as well as putting a plastic bag over her head.

It's claimed she was made to eat cat food, as well as take drugs and alcohol, with the other girl also made to eat pet food.

The second girl was allegedly chased by an adult wearing a devil mask and hung by her jumper from a nail on the wall. 

This culminated with her being pushed into and trapped inside a microwave, an oven, a fridge freezer and various cupboards, the court heard.

It is claimed one of the girls was threatened with being sent to Turkey with a male stranger, while the boy was put in a bath which they said was filled with blood. 

The boy and older girl are alleged to have been made to take part in 'seances (and) use a Ouija board…to call on spirits and demons'.

The children were also involved in 'witchcraft' leading them to believe that they themselves had 'metamorphosed into animals'.

The 11 are further said to have worn cloaks and devil horns as well making the young boy stab a budgie to death.

The group are also accused of killing a number of dogs including getting the children to attack the animals.

It is claimed that all three children were raped and sexually assaulted by members of the ring, with some cheering and clapping while recording the offences.

Prosecutors allege that some members of the group paid for 'sexual services' from three of the children.

The court heard that when the older girl called the police she was threatened by members of the group and had her call disconnected.

Hundreds of Scots demand Nicola Sturgeon resign in protest outside Holyrood

The event, led by the Glasgow Cabbie, attracted at least 500 people as they demanded the First Minister resign and campaigned against the gender reform bill.

David Walker

12 JAN 2023

Hundreds of angry Scots made their point in a protest outside Holyrood on Thursday as they demanded that Nicola Sturgeon resign over a number of failings.

Organised by the Glasgow Cabbie, a well-known taxi driver in Scotland, two bus loads of protestors came in from Scotland's biggest city to make their feelings known.

They held up a number of placards, mostly in protest at the controversial gender reform recognition act which was passed by MSPs at the end of last year.

At least 500 people were in attendance as they drowned out a counter karaoke protest which was held by trans allies and activists to show their displeasure at the event.

The campaigning was named "Leave our women and kids alone" as it targeted both the gender reform act, and the sex surveys for kids which have been criticised due to asking leading questions about sexual activities in schools.

Stef Shaw, the Glasgow Cabbie, introduced a number of speakers who all talked about their distrust of the current Holyrood government amid a call for action.

He said: "We've had absolutely amazing support today for our campaign. I can't believe the amount of people here, you are here in your colours, suffragettes, union jacks, saltires, your posters and placards and everything else that you have brought.

"We are representing decent people of Scotland who want to crush the GRA which is appalling. This is a highly dangerous bill to both women and children. We are here to show our voice against the bill. We want the UK Government to use their powers to quash it.

"I am loving all these signs I see, the taxi for Sturgeon one, resign Sturgeon, yes please."

Other groups were also represented at the protest, including the Scottish Family Party, the Alba Party, the Women Won't Wheest movement and some Unionist Clubs of Scotland.

The Scotland Matters group also toured their van around the event as they protested against Ms Sturgeon and the SNP over their failures in Scottish Government.

Unionist protestor Niall Fraser was one of the speakers at the event as he pointed out the amount of failings the SNP have presided over, including the chaos which has engulfed the NHS in Scotland.

He said: "People are suffering deeply. A few days ago Sturgeon held a press conference because our NHS is dying right before our eyes. She doesn't care, our fellow Scots are dying needlessly due to the inaction of the people in that building {Holyrood}.

"Instead of Humza Yousaf taking responsibility, he chose to weigh up the bodies of our dead Scots and compare that to the rest of the UK."

The demonstration was peaceful with no violence or disturbances as the police watched on. There was a wall of noise coming from the protestors as they whistled, cheered and made noises with their pots and pans.

Anger as EU project sees Police Scotland rebrand paedophiles as 'Minor-Attracted People'

The term – described as 'deeply disturbing' and 'baloney' – was included in the Chief Constable's year-end report as part of an EU project to tackle child abuse and exploitation

Mary Wright

George Mair

30 DEC 2022

A controversial move to label paedophiles as "Minor-Attracted People" in a top-level report has been defended by Police Scotland, with the force suggesting the EU was to blame.

Chief Constable Iain Livingstone's annual year end report refers to child abusers as Minor-Attracted People (MAPs). The move comes amid wider concerns by campaigners over what they see as attempts to rebrand paedophilia as a harmless sexual preference.

A spokesman for the force stressed that MAPs is not a term they routinely use to describe child abusers and said that its use in the report had to be understood in context.

READ MORE: UN official called out for describing trans woman's harassment of a Scottish MP as 'epic'

He explained that the reference to MAPs was in relation to the force's engagement with the European Union's Horizon Europe Project – Prevention of Child Sexual Exploitation.

The report states: "The project's main agenda is to develop understanding and approach to avoid the victimisation of children by engaging Minor-Attracted People (MAPs) and providing them with the necessary support, treatment and guidance to help prevent criminal activities."

A police spokesman said: "Police Scotland does not use the term Minor-Attracted Person. The reference in the Chief Constable's Assessment of Policing Performance 2021/22 was in the context of Police Scotland's engagement with the Horizon Project EU consortium to tackle Child Sexual Abuse and Exploitation.

"The term was used in the commissioning documents for the consortium and is more commonly used on the continent. In September, Police Scotland representatives successfully lobbied for the MAP term not to be used by the consortium."

The term MAP is contentious because child abusers are trying to escape the stigma attached to paedophilia and maintain they should be regarded as a niche group alongside the LGBT community.

Kenny McAskill, the Alba Party MP for East Lothian and former SNP Justice Secretary, said any use of euphemisms in relation to child sex abusers was "baloney".

He said: "Spouting these euphemisms simply masks the reality and their danger.

"I very much welcome the common sense approach from Police Scotland, though even in commissioning documents these euphemisms should be avoided as they mask the reality and hide the horror. The term in whatever context is baloney."

Maggie Mellon, an independent social work consultant, said the term MAP risked "the danger of normalising and therefore perhaps decriminalising a serious offence".

She added: "There should be diagnostic and treatment options for those who present a risk to children but the police are not a therapeutic service - they should be devoting their resources to closing down porn sites that feature children and abuse of women and upping their detection and conviction rates for those promoting child abuse."

A Scottish Conservative spokesman said: "Most Scots will find any attempt to soften the language around paedophilia in official guidance to be deeply disturbing and wrong.

"Offences relating to paedophilia are among the most appalling and unforgivable crimes anyone can commit and it's essential that Police Scotland guidance reflects this."

The MAPs propaganda drive has been compared to the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) campaign in the 1970s and 80s which piggy-backed on the gay liberation movement to push for pro-child abuse policies, such as lowering the age of consent to just four.

Single force blasted for 'Orwellian' rape policy

Police Scotland has already come under fire in the past year for saying they would record rapes by offenders with a penis as being committed by a woman if the attacker "identifies as female".

Campaigners said this would warp rape statistics and threaten women’s safety by understating the threat of male violence amid fears that the controversial Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill - which was passed two days before Christmas - would compromise the safety of women-only spaces such as changing rooms and toilets.

Author and campaigner JK Rowling was among those mocking the force, suggesting the move was "Orwellian" with her reference to George Orwell’s totalitarian novel 1984: "War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength. The Penised Individual Who Raped You Is a Woman."

The force defended the policy claiming concerns were "hypothetical" because the circumstances had never arisen.

Detective Superintendent Fil Capaldi said at the time: "The sex/ gender identification of individuals who come into contact with the police will be based on how they present or how they self-declare, which is consistent with the values of the organisation.

"Police Scotland requires no evidence or certification as proof of biological sex or gender identity other than a person's self-declaration, unless it is pertinent to any investigation with which they are linked."

Scotland’s Plan To Implement 20-Minute Neighbourhoods Nationwide

The Expose / Rhoda Wilson via Dylan Eleven Truth11.com 16 January 2023

New measures proposed by the Scottish government in a recent document outline a war on carbon and a war on cars. It includes a plan to implement restrictive 20-minute neighbourhoods so that the Government can deliver on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Environmentalists have had it in for cars for years, wrote Spiked Online last year, we all know they’d like to ban cars altogether. In the age of “net zero,” the car is public enemy No1. And so, we’ve had a long line of proposals to make driving more expensive and difficult.

For example, in April 2022, Stefanie O’Gorman, who sits on the Scottish government’s Climate Emergency Response Group, said that the construction of houses with double garages drove her “bonkers.” She told the Edinburgh Science Festival that owning two cars ignores “the social and cultural changes taking place as we adapt our lives to live more sustainably… we can’t afford for everybody to have two cars.”

In November 2022, the Scottish government published a revised draft of their ‘National Planning Framework 4’ which dramatically begins: “The global climate emergency means that we need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to the future impacts of climate change.”

A few paragraphs later it states, “We have already taken significant steps towards decarbonising energy and land use, but choices need to be made about how we can make sustainable use of our natural assets in a way which benefits communities.”

Don’t be fooled by the fluffy language. The Scottish government’s efforts are not an attempt to “benefit communities.” As the draft itself states, the Scottish government is planning “future places” on six principles that “will play a key role in delivering on the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).”

Whom do the SDGs benefit? To demonstrate who benefits we’ll use the example of SDG7 on which we have recently published two articles, see below, and in a nutshell: SDG7 has the goal to “ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.” We are told that the whole point of “sustainable development” is to mitigate the problems that will supposedly be caused by humanity’s greenhouse gas emissions. This fairy tale has left most people labouring under the illusion that SDG7 energy transition, and the variations on the associated “net zero” policy commitment, will reduce CO2 emissions. That assumption is wrong. The reality is the UN’s “sustainable” goal for renewable energy is sheer fantasy, if not utter madness and is a scam to enable the rich to become richer off the backs of the poor.

One of the Scottish government’s six principles to deliver on the UN’s goals in its National Planning Framework is “local living”:

Local living. We will support local liveability and improve community health and well-being by ensuring people can easily access services, greenspace, learning, work and leisure locally.

To understand what is meant by “locally” and how they plan to achieve “locally,” we need to read further into the draft, wade through more gibberish and follow the word trail.

The “national spatial strategy,” the draft says, will support the planning and delivery of “sustainable places,” “liveable places” and “productive places.” According to the Scottish government, a “sustainable place” includes:

Scotland’s Climate Change Plan, backed by legislation, has set our approach to achieving net zero emissions by 2045, and we must make significant progress towards this by 2030 including by reducing car kilometres travelled by 20% by reducing the need to travel and promoting more sustainable transport.

Now Nicola Sturgeon's SNP plans to ask SEVEN-year-olds if they are 'male, female, non-binary, transgender or other' in school survey branded 'disgraceful' and 'indoctrination'

A school survey in Scotland will ask seven-year-olds about their gender identity

SNP and Lib Dem-run Aberdeen City Council organised the survey for 59 schools

The gender options are: 'Male, Female, Non-binary, Transgender or Other' 

By Michael Blackley For The Scottish Daily Mail

20 January 2023

Pupils as young as seven are being asked if they identify as transgender or non-binary in a 'disgraceful' school survey.

Primary school children taking part in the sex and wellbeing study are told an answer to the question is 'required' to move on to the next page of the survey.

The pupils – who can select either 'male, female, non-binary, transgender or other' – are not required to have a parent present.

Furious parents last night hit out at the 'indoctrination' of young children who do not know 'if they want chicken nuggets or fish fingers for dinner'.

It comes days after Green MSP Maggie Chapman opened the door to children as young as eight being able to change gender.

The survey has been introduced by Aberdeen City Council – led by an SNP and Liberal Democrat coalition – to its 59 schools.

Douglas Lumsden, Tory MSP for North East Scotland and a former co-leader of Aberdeen City Council, said: 'It is disgraceful that the council are forcing children as young as seven to answer questions about their gender.

'We have heard from Maggie Chapman just this week that she would like children as young as eight to be able to change gender.

'These snooping questions from the council seem to be following the same agenda.'

The survey tells pupils it will ask questions about physical wellbeing 'and a small section on your relationships with others and the choices that you make'. It is the first local authority known to be asking the gender question of its P4 children.

The Scottish Government introduced a 'health and wellbeing' survey which has provoked outrage among many parents.

It has been branded 'creepy' and 'intrusive' following concerns about questions that senior pupils in secondary schools were asked.

Under the Government guidance, all pupils from P5 to S6 will be quizzed about issues including school, health, wellbeing, physical activity, sleep patterns, social media, body image and bullying in a 20 to 40-minute online survey to be completed in class.

Those in S2 and above will also be questioned about alcohol and tobacco, while pupils in S4 and above will be asked questions about relationships and sexual health.

These questions have caused controversy because they ask about experience of specific sexual acts.

n the Aberdeen survey, primary school pupils aged from seven to nine are being asked about their gender

Jo Bisset, organiser for the UFTScotland parents' group, said: 'What we are seeing is a huge growth in gender dysphoria among young people. It can look like it is being encouraged and I think the fact that schools transition children without their parents' knowledge is something our members find very disturbing.

'Outside of incredibly exceptional circumstances, parents are the right people to speak to children about these things. This idea that virtual strangers should be enabling transition is very worrying.

'It could easily be the case that parents have no idea about any of these issues and it is hidden from them.

'A seven to nine-year-old child doesn't know if they want chicken nuggets or fish fingers for dinner, and that is how it should be. They shouldn't be worrying about this sort of thing.

'It is indoctrination by adults looking to pursue their own ideology and impress it on children.'

AFP supports Northern Ireland Police investigation into institutional abuse

22 January 2023

The AFP is supporting the Police Service of Northern Ireland’s effort to locate women and children affected by institutional abuse between 1922 and 1990 as the search widens to Australia.

The Police Service launched an investigation in 2021 into allegations of abuse within Mother and Baby Institutions, Work Houses and Magdalene Laundries in Northern Ireland and believes victims and witnesses may now live in Australia.

They are appealing for mothers who gave birth in, or anyone who was adopted from institutions in Northern Ireland between 1922 and 1990 to come forward.

These institutions housed many, including pregnant women and girls from 1922 to 1990 in Northern Ireland, who often felt coerced into giving up their child.

Thousands of people are said to have lived in, worked in, or visited these institutions over a 68-year period.

Officers in the dedicated investigation team have now received 88 reports; many of which include allegations of inconsistencies with birth records from those who were adopted from Northern Irish institutions and now live overseas.

Enquires to date suggest that there could be more victims and witnesses out there, with many moving or being adopted to countries overseas like Australia.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland are renewing their appeal and encouraging more people to come forward to report to police and have their voice heard.

They are appealing to anyone currently residing in Australia, mothers who gave birth in one of these institutions in Northern Ireland, was adopted from, visited, or worked there to come forward and report to them. Any information could be helpful.

Detective Superintendent Gary Reid, who is the operational lead for the investigation said:

“As the investigation continues into the Mother and Baby Institutions, Magdalene Laundries and Work Houses in Northern Ireland, we are becoming increasingly aware that the people impacted by these institutions do not just reside in Northern Ireland but could now reside all over the world as far as Australia,” he said.

“We don’t want anyone to feel they have to suffer in silence anymore and we will continue to do all we can to reach as many people with this message as possible.

“We would like to reinforce that this investigation is very much ongoing in Northern Ireland. If you believe you were the victim of abuse or other forms of criminality in any of these Northern Irish institutions, or know somebody who was, or if you witnessed anything suspicious, please contact us, we want to hear from you.

"We care about what you have to say, will listen and support you, and will act to keep you and others safe."

A dedicated reporting system is in place to make it easier for people to report.

A spokesman for Aberdeen City Council said: 'All children in P5-S6 were given the opportunity to participate in a physical wellbeing survey. Like all other surveys, young people have the option to opt out of this process before or during the activity.

'All questions were very carefully considered and through thorough review were deemed appropriate. These questions [have] been developed by a team of education support officers and reviewed by pupils, staff and parents prior to use last year. The questions within the survey are linked carefully to the health and wellbeing curriculum that is covered from P4 (2nd Level).

'The survey itself has very few identifiers, however it does include age and gender to help us identify appropriate supports. It has been recognised that through work in our schools a large number of young people identify as transgender or non-binary as well as male and female and we wanted to ensure that we provided an opportunity for them to respond openly.'

A Government spokesman said: 'This is the council's own survey which it decided to undertake to inform local policy. The Scottish Government had no involvement in this survey as it is unrelated to the health and wellbeing census.'

Crown Office investigating legal figures accused of historic child abuse linked to Operation Planet scandal

Scottish Conservative MSP Russell Findlay has asked for more details after Solicitor General Ruth Charteris KC revealed that 'investigations are ongoing'

ByJohn GloverTrainee reporter

23 JAN 2023

Senior members of the legal establishment linked to trafficking, sexual exploitation and abuse of children in care are being investigated in Scotland.

Scottish Conservative MSP Russell Findlay was told about the probe last year through a disclosure by Ruth Charteris KC, the solicitor-general for the SNP Government.

Four years ago part-time sheriff and advocate John Halley raised concerns about historic allegations involving senior Scottish legal figures in a bombshell Note to the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry.

The Scottish Daily Express revealed exclusive details of Mr Halley's Note in December, which included well-founded claims of an establishment paedophile ring operating in the 1990s.

At the time, he says he was told that he had strayed beyond the bounds of his remit and claimed there was "no excuse" for choosing not to investigate the allegations. Now, however, it appears that an investigation IS taking place.

Mr Findlay said: "I was surprised to be told by the solicitor-general that some form of investigation is apparently taking place. This has only now been disclosed, four years after Mr Halley submitted his important and concerning note.

"However, [the solicitor general's] response raises far more questions than answers, which is why I've asked John Swinney for a full explanation about what exactly is going on."

The Conservative MSP tabled questions in parliament amid concerns about the apparent failure to act on Mr Halley's note. The solicitor-general responded that it would be "inappropriate to comment" as "investigations into this matter are ongoing".

…..continued…..

In a letter to the Deputy First Minister, Mr Findlay criticises the apparent secrecy around the investigation and writes: "The solicitor-general's response did not explain what these investigations comprise, their status or who is conducting them".

He has asked Mr Swinney to provide "a full and proper response", including details of action taken by the Scottish Government "in respect of the note, including the contacting of Police Scotland. I would also like to know the nature of the ongoing investigations referred to by the solicitor general".

Mr Halley was appointed as a lead junior counsel to the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry in 2015 and maintains that his extensive research found evidence of "child trafficking through prostitution of children in care in Scotland".

Operation Planet looked into claims of abuse network

The part-time sheriff warned that vulnerable young people in care were being let down by a prosecution policy that he believes failed to prevent sexual exploitation through prostitution.

The Crown Office policy introduced in 1991 concluded that it was not in the public interest to pursue clients of male prostitutes as young as 16 who had previously engaged in homosexual acts.

In 1990, police launched Operation Planet after a 16-year-old boy from a care home was found in a flat in central Edinburgh. He had been held over a period of 10 days and drugged and repeatedly raped by a number of men, said to include some influential public figures.

It led to claims of an establishment paedophile ring that is said to have operated over several decades and to have included, at one time or another, well-known TV personalities, judges, lawyers and senior police officers.

The investigation initially resulted in 57 charges against 10 men, later reduced to 10 charges against five men whose not guilty pleas were accepted by a court in February 1991.

The flat on Palmerston Place in the Edinburgh's West End was owned by former Bay City Rollers manager Tam Paton, although a subsequent report written by Lord Nimmo Smith does not highlight this fact – an omission Mr Halley describes as "curious".

He claimed that the police and the Crown Office should have had "detailed knowledge or concerns" about Paton's activities prior to the Operation Planet scandal.

The advocate added that Paton's home in Gogar – where the sleazy mogul died in his hot tub weighing 25 stone – was known for "child trafficking". It has since been torn down.

The part-time sheriff analysed the 1993 report written by Lord Nimmo Smith that looked into the Planet investigation and the events that followed called 'Allegations of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice'.

Controversially, the report dismissed the young people involved – many of whom were children in care – as 'rent boys' and said they were not being abused because they were receiving payment.

Mr Halley said the young people were in fact part of a child trafficking network and called on the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry to re-investigate the Operation Planet probe.

He noted that the criminal cases were dropped after the Crown accepted that sex had been consensual between the complainers and the accused.

Last month, an associate of Paton, John 'Sticky' Wilson, 81, was jailed for 12 years at the High Court in Edinburgh, for sexual offences spanning more than half a century. A BBC Disclosure documentary about Operation Planet will be broadcast next month.

The Crown Office said: "It would not be appropriate to comment on ongoing investigations."

I've found a bit of time to go back to review the twitter account of John Halley @AdvocateHalley and find myself unable on a suspended account to go beyone his August 8th tweets which is handy as that is the day that John Watt QC was jailed for 10 years for the abuse of children.

Probably worth noting I've scrolled all the way back as far as I can and working myself back from the past in the direction of the present.

I am truly surprised tonight. My twitter account has come under attack by multiple, apparently bot, accounts expressing support for @NicolaSturgeon

’s right to tweet in a personal capacity. My response: real victims real crimes. Don’t cover up child sexual abuse allegations

I posted the article that day of John Watt QC being jailed for 10 years here on an earlier board…well I tried to….the boards went haywire as they did 2 weeks previous when I posted on his guilty verdict.

Perhaps some of those tweeting at John are sympathectic to the SNP's creepy interest in the sexualising of other people's children? Not saying they are of course but that there's a possibility of it.

Did people advance because of knowledge about each others offending? Did this pedophile ring have any influence over prosecution of child abuse? Were decisions made to drop child abuse cases or reduce charges or sentences out of sympathy for a kindred spirit?

An appalling case. I am surprised this prosecution hasn't got the public traction you might expect, given the identities of the people involved.

Met Police chief inspector found dead at home was facing charges over child abuse images

The body of Met Police Chief Inspector Richard Watkinson was discovered by colleagues who had gone to his property because they were concerned about his welfare.

A top police officer has been found dead at his home after failing to attend a police station to be charged over possessing child abuse images.

The body of Met Police chief inspector Richard Watkinson was discovered by colleagues who had gone to his address because they were concerned about his welfare.

The Sun reports when officers arrived at the 49-year-old's house they found a body.

Police are said to be treating his death as "unexplained", but not suspicious. A source told The Sun it is suspected Watkinson was involving in his death while under "huge mental strain" due to the case.

Toxicology tests are being carried out to establish his cause of death. The coroner has been informed and an inquest will take place at a later date.

It is believed that Watkinson was due to report back on bail last Thursday to be charged over an alleged network of online paedophiles.

He is said to have feared he was about to be publicly named in connection with the alleged conspiracy to distribute indecent images of children.

A Met Police spokesperson said: “Met officers attended an address in Buckinghamshire on the afternoon of Thursday, 12 January following welfare concerns and found the body of a man in his 40s’.”

A spokesperson for Thames Valley Police said: “Officers were called to Saunderton, Princes Risborough, at just after 3.35pm on Thursday 12 January.

"Sadly, the body of a man was located inside a property at that location. The man’s death is unexplained but not suspicious. A file will be prepared for the coroner.

"His next of kin have been made aware and our thoughts are with the man’s family and friends."

Watkinson was first arrested in July 2021 when it is alleged that up to thousands of indecent images were allegedly discovered in a secret room at his home.

His arrest stunned his colleagues, as he was a popular figure and was nicknamed "Sir Smashy" after a Harry Enfield character by lower ranking officers on the Met’s West Area Basic Command Unit where he worked.

He was originally held over allegations of misconduct in public office, sending obscene messages, corrupt exercise of police powers and data protection breaches.

It followed a joint investigation by the Met's professional standards unit and the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) and the Met’s professional standards unit.

When officers searched the suspect’s home, they are said to have found a secret trap-door which led to an area containing computer equipment.

It is alleged child sexual abuse images were found on the computers, and the material was judged to be category the two most serious levels.

After the alleged discovery of the illegal material, Chief Inspector Watkinson was further arrested 11 days later.

His arrest was on suspicion of several offences, including conspiracy to distribute indecent images of children, voyeurism and misconduct in public office.

He was released on bail and suspended from duties while an investigation was carried out by the Met’s specialist crime officers working with officers in Scotland and Lincolnshire.

Last week, officers charged two men with conspiracy to distribute or show indecent images of children. They are due to appear in court shortly.

One former colleague said: “He was a popular governor and his arrest caused a great deal of shock.

“There was talk of thousands of images and videos being found behind a trap door in his home.

“He had been under huge mental strain while he was on bail and there were concerns that he was suicidal.

“The worst fears for his health have now been realised and he was found dead last week. It is suspected he killed himself.”

Rapist PC Carrick is just tip of the iceberg as police whistleblower says 'this is huge'

Police forces must be braced for more scandals because things will "get a lot worse before they get better", a senior political insider has warned.

Rapist PC Carrick is just tip of the iceberg as police whistleblower says 'this is huge'

Police forces must be braced for more scandals because things will "get a lot worse before they get better", a senior political insider has warned.

By David Williamson - Sunday Express Political Editor, Jon Austin - Sunday Express Crime Editor

20:00, Sat, Jan 21, 2023 | UPDATED: 20:24, Sat, Jan 21, 2023

The unmasking of a serial rapist serving in an elite Met unit may only be the “tip of the iceberg”, with the corruption threatening to seriously undermine faith in the police, they said.

Senior MPs fear that confidence has been so badly undermined that a Royal Commission – a major public inquiry – may be the only way of restoring trust.

Failure to do so could lead to “a disregard of the rule of law”.

PC David Carrick was last week revealed to be a prolific sex offender who abused his role in the police to terrify his victims. He faces a lengthy jail term after admitting dozens of rape and sexual offences against 12 women over 17 years. He will be sentenced next month.

His conviction follows the case of Sarah Everard, 33, who was snatched off the street, raped and murdered by another serving Met officer.

A whistle-blower who previously worked at the same unit as Carrick has described a macho culture of “toxic masculinity”.

Dave Eden, who was in the Diplomatic Protection Group (DPG) said: “You have to ask about the psychology of somebody that wants to swan around in body armour carrying MP5 submachine guns. It’s about image, portraying the hard macho man, picking up women.”

He claimed the unit harboured some “predatory officers” for years, but nothing was done to root them out. Among the behaviour Mr Eden describes are:

● Officers watching pornography on late shifts;

● Prolific and predatory behaviour including patrolling outside Soho nightclubs to pick up women;

● Targeting tourists as they were likely to have left the country before questions could be raised;

● Using police-issue guns to lure impressionable young women into bed.

The Metropolitan Police is currently investigating about 1,000 sexual and domestic abuse allegations that involve complaints against around 800 officers.

Greater Manchester Police has also revealed it had six misconduct cases involving police officers or employees found guilty of sexual offences, or those involving inappropriate relationships with victims of crime, in just three months from October to December, and a further 26 misconduct cases concerning corruption, drugs and violence.

Speaking of the scandals, a senior government source said: “This is huge. I think we are going to discover a hell of a lot more. It’s going to get a lot worse before it gets better.”

Just two days ago, a former officer who abused his role to start relationships with vulnerable women was jailed for two years and eight months. Rhett Wilson, 27, who had served with West Mercia Police, admitted three corruption offences at Worcester Crown Court.

There are fears that public confidence in the police could be shattered if forces cannot root out their abusers.

Mr Eden claims a “toxic canteen culture” of watching porn on night shifts and using guns to impress women went largely unchallenged among some officers within the Parliamentary and Diplomatic Command predecessor more than 25 years ago.

Mr Eden, who spent seven years with the unit until 1995, claims that this culture, which may have attracted and even enabled predators like Carrick, was entrenched years ago.

He said: “That culture went unchallenged, and if it was, the officer was bullied and forced out. We used to sit and watch porn on night duty on satellite TV, or somebody would bring a porn movie in.”

He left the force as a sergeant in 2010 and has remained in contact with former and current officers via messaging platforms.

He described seeing a sexist and racist culture evolve, from police noticeboards in the early days to private groups on encrypted messaging apps. Last year Mr Eden blew the whistle over alleged racist content on a WhatsApp group of former DPG colleagues.

A man was suspended and arrested on suspicion of offences under the Communications Act and misconduct in a public office and remains on police bail.

The suspect had served on the DPG with Mr Eden, who says that after he blew the whistle, new Met Police Commissioner Sir Mark Rowley arranged to meet him. The meeting was later cancelled.

The source pushed for major reform so that officers who are a danger to the public are identified and removed. A key priority is overhauling reporting systems and ensuring that senior officers can be trusted by juniors.

“They have got to have seniors they can trust and not seniors who are part of the problem and in collusion,” they said.

They insisted this was about much more than changing the “culture” of policing, saying: “It is much more endemic. It is institutional and it is structural.”

Warning of the consequences if public trust in policing collapses, the senior political source said: “I think we’ll have a disregard of the rule of law.”

The source stressed that problems are not limited to London but exist across the country.

“This is like a big fat onion,” they said. “You are peeling back various layers.

“You are discovering all sorts of things. Some layers are going to make us really weep and really cry a lot, and it’s those layers we have to tackle.”

A leading women’s charity has also demanded robust action.

Farah Nazeer, chief executive of Women’s Aid, said: “Sorry is not an acceptable response to the women whose lives have been ruined by Carrick, nor is it enough for the thousands more women and girls who have lost all confidence and trust in the Met Police.

“Apologies and assurances are meaningless unless they are backed up by robust and measurable actions which tackle the deep-seated misogyny that has been allowed to fester within the Met Police for far too long.”

Children punched and locked out naked in care homes rated "good"

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-63792458

Children in care were punched, locked out naked and had vinegar poured on cuts, according to reports that were filed over three years before the homes were finally shut.

A BBC investigation has learned more than 100 concerns were logged at the Doncaster children's homes, which retained a "good" Ofsted rating.

Leaked documents also show Ofsted was alerted 40 times about incidents.

The regulator has now apologised, as has Hesley Group, which ran the homes.

More than 100 of the UK's most vulnerable children in care are feared to have been harmed, involving many who are non-verbal.

The homes, which included two residential special schools, charged local authorities £250,000 a year to care for each young person.

The homes continued to be rated as "good" by Ofsted, but in March 2021 the regulator finally stepped in and they were closed shortly afterwards.

Hesley Group might need some digging

Over 600 veterans homeless in SNP Scotland as Shona Robison urged to declare national emergency

Nicola Sturgeon has been told the buck stops with her government as 47,000 Scots find themselves homeless with a further 21,000 living in temporary accommodation

By Douglas Dickie

25 JAN 2023

The SNP/Green government has been accused of “presiding over a national housing crisis” with thousands of people either homeless or in temporary accommodation. The Scottish Conservatives will use their party-business slot at Holyrood on Wednesday to shine a light on the "perfect storm" while calling on housing minister Shona Robsion to declare a national emergency.

It comes as Scottish Government figures confirmed there are almost 47,000 homeless people in Scotland - including over 600 armed forces veterans - and 21,000 households in temporary accommodation. The Tories say their own research has identified 330,000 Scots on social housing waiting lists.

Shadow housing secretary Miles Briggs MSP will lead twin debates in parliament – the first, on rising rates of homelessness, with a particular focus on vulnerable groups affected. The second will be on ministers’ failure to reach housebuilding targets and the impact of budget cuts and rent controls.

Mr Briggs says he is particularly concerned that almost a third of homeless Scots and those on waiting lists are children, while other vulnerable groups such, as disabled people and service veterans, are badly affected. He will also focus on the SNP’s failure to meet its target to build 50,000 affordable homes on time, a "huge" £170 million cash cut in the 2023-24 housing budget and the effect of the rent freeze and evictions ban on private housebuilding.

The Lothian MSP said focus on housing had "gone under the radar" while the health crisis raged but SNP mismanagement had created a "perfect storm". He added: "It’s completely unacceptable that there are 47,000 people currently registered as homeless, and a third of a million Scots on social housing waiting lists, including close to 100,000 children and more than 24,000 disabled people.

"There are also more than 600 armed service veterans registered as homeless, something which should embarrass us as a nation. The buck stops with Nicola Sturgeon’s government for this crisis. They have failed to meet their own housebuilding targets and there’s little hope of the situation improving when John Swinney’s most recent budget outlined a swingeing £170m cut in the housing budget – and that’s in cash, not real, terms.

"On top of that, we’ve had the SNP-Green rent freeze and eviction ban, which has been counter-productive and damaging for tenants – as we warned it would be – by reducing private rental stock and leading to housing developments being paused or shelved."

Housing charity Shelter has already called on Nicola Sturgeon to "spearhead an urgent Scottish Housing Emergency Action Plan to protect households in Scotland from homelessness". They say that the plan must aim to reduce affordable housing need by 2026.

A Scottish Government spokesman claimed the country has "led the way in delivering affordable housing across the UK". He added: "The number of households in temporary accommodation is too high and we are firmly committed to reducing it.

"Local authorities are making encouraging progress with the implementation of their Rapid Rehousing Transition Plans, and the Housing Secretary has commissioned an action plan from experts in the sector to reduce the numbers of people and time spend in temporary accommodation.

"Our £752 million 2023-24 budget will be supplemented by contributions from the Heat in Buildings Fund and Charitable Bond Programme donations directed towards investment in social rented homes. We remain committed to making over £3.5 billion available for affordable housing over the current parliamentary session as part of our ambitious plans to deliver 110,000 affordable homes by 2032."
