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.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-edinburgh-east-fife-62466734

Former prosecutor John Watt QC jailed for abusing children

9th August 2022.

A former Scottish prosecutor has been jailed for 10 years for sexually abusing four young children more than four decades ago.

John Watt QC, who was also a criminal defence lawyer, preyed on three young girls and a boy over a 14-year period.

The 72-year-old had been extradited from the United States to stand trial in July.

Judge Lord Braid told Watt he had committed "vile" crimes of the "utmost seriousness and depravity."

Watt was also put on the sex offenders register for an indeterminate period.

Former Scots QC guilty of abusing four children

Last month, Watt was found guilty of one charge of rape, one of indecent assault and three of indecent conduct committed at houses in the Edinburgh area between September 1973 and August 1987.

At the High Court in Edinburgh, Lord Braid said: "In each case the offences have had a profound and life-changing effect on the victims."

The judge said that Watt continued to maintain his innocence over the abuse and added that perhaps explained why he had not demonstrated any remorse or empathy for his victims.

Lord Braid said: "In your role as advocate depute (Crown Office prosecutor) you prosecuted the very type of offence of which you have now been convicted."

Abuse at gatherings

Watt raped a girl under the age of 12 at an address in the west end of Edinburgh.

Two other girls were later molested by him in their beds at a house in Edinburgh and a 10-year-old boy was subjected to sexual abuse at an address in Leith in 1987.

The court previously heard that a number of the victims had relatives who were also legal figures at the time.

During his trial, Watt pinned the blame on a now dead lawyer for attacks on one of the girls.

The female rape victim told the trial that her father, who was also a lawyer, took her to see Watt at a house in Edinburgh. The woman, now aged 55, said: "I did things to the man which he made me do."

Two sisters told the trial how their lawyer father often hosted gatherings at their home where Watt and others would be present.

One described waking up to find Watt at her bedside before he got in beside her and began touching her inappropriately.

Her sister saw him in the bed and recalled being "frightened", but the advocate then turned on her and subjected her to abuse.

The court heard that their father had subsequently reported Watt to a senior lawyer, who later became a judge, instead of going to police.

The male victim told the court: "I was raped by John Watt. I remember him coming in the room and I remember him telling me to turn over." Watt was meant to be looking after the boy while his parents were away.

….continued:

Defence counsel Donald Findlay QC told the court Watt would be lodging an appeal.

He said that Watt "in common with any decent individual deplores the type of conduct that is referred to in these charges".

Mr Findlay said: "He is a first offender. He is still one of Her Majesty's counsel in Scotland."

'Picked the wrong kid'

Watt gave up law in Scotland and moved to Oklahoma in 1995 where he did some work for his wife's real estate agency before armed police detained him ahead of extradition proceedings.

Mr Findlay said Watt did not keep good health and had diabetes but hoped to return home to America and his wife.

Following the sentencing, the two sisters said in a statement addressed to Watt: "You thought you'd picked the right kid.

"The kid of a dad who idolised you and was too weak to stand up to you properly. The kid of a mum who knew it was wrong, but was told that she wouldn't be believed.

"The kid who cowered behind the locked door of a freezing cold bathroom in case you came back for her. The kid who kept her secret for 37 years.

"Having been found guilty, I think you should know that you picked the wrong kid. Because there are no wrong kids. Only kids who are too young to have the power to do anything about it.

"Only kids who people don't listen hard enough to. Only kids who don't have friends in high places who'll turn a blind eye. Only kids who know right from wrong. Just kids."

When John Watt was sentenced in the courts where he used to practise as a senior lawyer, prosecuting people accused of sex crimes, two of his victims were watching from the public gallery.

The sisters were young girls when the Queen's Counsel abused them at their home in Edinburgh 40 years ago. Watt was convicted of raping two other children, a girl aged under 12 and a 10-year-old boy.

They listened to Watt's defence counsel Donald Findlay QC complain that the ex-lawyer had been "treated like some kind of serial killer" when he was arrested by armed American police officers on behalf of the Scottish authorities.

They heard Mr Findlay say Watt was sympathetic to "any victim of this type of behaviour" but still maintained his innocence.

They watched the judge Lord Braid jail the ex-lawyer for 10 years, having noted that his behaviour had had a "profound and lifelong" effect on his victims.

Afterwards, the sisters gave the handful of reporters covering the case a typed statement addressed "to the accused." It was defiant and heartbreaking.

The sisters said their father had idolised Watt but was too weak to stand up to him properly. They said their mother was told she wouldn't be believed. They talked of a secret kept for 37 years and of kids "who don't have friends in high places who'll turn a blind eye".

Questions have been asked about whether these allegations could have been dealt with long ago.

Cases involving so-called historic abuse allegations are now commonplace within Scotland's courts, as justice finally catches up with the evil done by men like John Watt. They're not historic for the victims still living with the consequences.

The former defence lawyer and prosecutor is lodging an appeal, but if his convictions and the 10-year sentence stands, he'll be in his late 70s before he's considered for parole.

Salmond was against holding child abuse inquiry, says Deputy First Minister

27th November 2020

Former First Minister Alex Salmond and other influential figures in the Scottish Government were against holding an inquiry into the abuse of children in care, John Swinney has said.

Speaking at the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry on Friday, the Deputy First Minister said there was clear division between ministers on the decision to hold a public investigation.

He said an inquiry was authorised “after the change of First Minister had taken place”.

James Peoples QC, senior counsel to the inquiry, said that on Thursday Mike Russell told him “influential figures, including Alex Salmond, Kenny MacAskill and the then lord advocate Frank Mulholland were not persuaded” of the need for an inquiry.

Mike Russell engaged heavily with survivors, John Swinney told the inquiry (Fraser Bremner/Scottish Daily Mail/PA)

Mr Swinney agreed, saying: “In 2014, there was a difference of views in Cabinet in the summer of 2014 if there should be an inquiry.”

Mr Peoples said: “Mike Russell described it as ‘quite robust’.

“He said one school of thought was that the time taken, the cost involved, didn’t support the need for a public inquiry.

“Whereas Mike Russell was putting forward another view of what do survivors want?”

Mr Swinney responded: “There was a perfectly respectable debate among Cabinet but there were two opinions.

“One argument was that the inquiry would not address the issues and would not deliver the outcomes survivors hoped for.

“Mike Russell had engaged heavily with survivors and his view was we had to confront this issue as a country, to do justice for survivors to enable them to have their experiences documented, understood and reflected on, and for the state to accept responsibility for what happened to them.

“I supported him in that view in Cabinet.

“The inquiry was authorised in December after the change of First Minister had taken place.

“Without a doubt, there was a division of views in Cabinet.”

Mr Swinney also said the cost of an inquiry would not have been a deterrent, saying: “I’ve seen a lot of traffic about money in the papers and I was finance minister for nine years, so I controlled that money.

“Ironically, in the period after 2007, the financial issues were a lot less than in early 2014.

“When I came to office in 2007, I was pleasantly surprised there was £1.6 billion in an account in the treasury that hadn’t been spent.

“When I was going through the accounts in 2006 and saw that, I thought that would be quite handy to have that.We still had the block grant(however many billions given yearly by UK parliament)and there was £1.6 billion that had not been spent, which I found quite surprising.”

Mr Peoples asked: “Although you weren’t approached about finding money for an inquiry, there was money there?”

Mr Swinney said: “There was a hidden money tree at that point. So the idea that money was an issue – I had the ability to fund the financial priorities my colleagues found to be important.”

The latest phase of the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry, heard before judge Lady Smith, is exploring reasons why calls between August 2002 and December 2014 for a public inquiry to be held were resisted by ministers.

The current inquiry was set up in October 2015.

It is investigating abuse of children in care in Scotland or where their care was arranged in Scotland.

The inquiry continues.

All through the years from 2002 to 15 they were denying an inquiry to victims because of "cost".

==Locked in the Hospital

Disclosure==

Series 5

Reporter Lucy Adams investigates why four young men have been locked in secure hospitals for years. She meets the families struggling to get their loved ones home and hears the stories of those with autism and learning disabilities desperate to get out of a system they don’t understand.

More than 20 years after it was agreed no one should be living in hospital, she looks at why hundreds of people are still stuck behind locked doors, sometimes for decades. Ministers have promised to get most people home by March 2024, but is that going to happen?

Apologies, I've no link to add. If anyone can find a working link please post it.

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.

He became a High Court judge known for dishing out harsh punishments to crooks. Over five years, 84 of his sentences were overturned for being too severe.

He retired in 2012 but ex-First Minister Alex Salmond appointed him to chair the inquiry into the shambolic £776million Edinburgh Trams project, above, in 2014.

His report is expected next year at the earliest.

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.

Sheriff Alistair Duff to appear in court

14 Jan 2022

A sheriff has been charged in connection with matters which will become public when he appears in court shortly.

Alistair Duff, 67, who once represented Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, retired on December 1 last year after a 45-year career.

He was appointed sheriff at Dundee in 2004 before being named director of the Judicial Institute for Scotland in 2014.

A Police Scotland spokesman told SLN: “Following a complaint and subsequent investigation, a 67-year-old man was charged and has been reported to the Procurator Fiscal.”

https://twitter.com/AdvocateHalley/status/1531341518040186881

I know Donald Trump said while president that he wanted the Locherbie bombing looked at again. I wonder if this is anything to do with the arrest of Sheriff Alistair Duff who once represented Abdelbaset al-Megrahi?

John Halley Advocate seems rather interested in this. John Halley as you may recall is the guy who was fired from the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry (SCAI) after sending a 17,500 word "note" to Lady Ann Smith, current chair of the inquiry detailing those within the Judiciary who were involved in child abuse, and was "sacked" from the inquiry by Smith, who as it turns out has as her personal secretary (personally picked by her, or by Lord Brian Gill on her behalf after he chose her to be the 2nd chair of that inquiry) none other than the daughter of Lord Cullen.

Nicola Sturgeon tries to get into wrong car whilst being heckled at Edinburgh Fringe

NICOLA Sturgeon was filmed nearly getting into the wrong car while being heckled by protesters.

The First Minister appeared at The Stand comedy club on Edinburgh's George Street and spoke with Graham Spiers for his 'In Conversation' series at the Edinburgh Fringe.

But protesters from Unionist group A Force For Good - founded by Alistair McConnachie who was axed from UKIP for being a holocaust denier - turned up outside the venue holding signs that read "Sturgeon is not Scotland."

Anger as SNP gave £5m of taxpayer's money to China's controversial 'spy school' in Glasgow

The Free Tibet campaign is furious that Scottish taxpayers are effectively backing an 'authoritarian government carrying out widespread abuses against Tibetans, Uyghurs, Hongkongers and Chinese citizens'

ByBen Borland Editor

2 SEP 2022

The Scottish Government has admitted giving £5.3million of public funds to the Confucius Institute for Scotland's Schools over the past eight years.

Based at Strathclyde University in Glasgow, it runs 22 learning hubs to promote Chinese languages and culture in schools. However, the organisation - which is controlled directly from Beijing - has come under fire recently amid accusations of espionage.

Confucius Institutes have been closed down in several Western countries and Rishi Sunak has vowed to do the same to the 30 operating in the UK if he becomes Prime Minister. These latest funding figures will only fuel claims that the SNP administration has been too naive in dealing with China.

Conservative MSP Oliver Mundell – shadow cabinet secretary for education and skills – told The Ferret investigative website: "While building cross-cultural links is important, taxpayers will rightly raise an eyebrow at the amount of money being provided by the SNP Government to these controversial institutions, heavily linked to the Chinese Government. Given the large sums involved, full transparency and accountability from ministers is essential."

Edinburgh, Glasgow, Heriot-Watt, and Aberdeen universities also host Confucius institutes, but they do not receive grants from the Scottish Government.

Others to have previously questioned the organisation's presence on campuses include human rights lawyer Aamer Anwar and Anne Henderson, the former rectors of Glasgow and Edinburgh universities.

John Jones, of the human rights group Free Tibet, described the Confucius Institute for Scotland's Schools (CISS) an "instrument of soft power by a government that is carrying out widespread abuses against Tibetans, Uyghurs, Hongkongers and Chinese citizens".

He added: "While the study of the Chinese language and Chinese culture is fully worth supporting, there is no need for this to be carried out in collaboration with an authoritarian government.

"As the world wakes up to the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) human rights abuses against Tibetans, Hongkongers and Uyghurs, it is no surprise that the global trend is one of governments and universities cutting ties with such institutes. It is our recommendation that the Scottish Government follows suit."

The funding figures were published on Thursday and also show the government holds more than 3,000 official documents relating to the Confucius Institute. However, officials refused to release any of these as it would take too long to retrieve them all.

CISS says it is an "award winning Confucius Institute working with schools across Scotland to engage pupils with Chinese language learning and culture". It runs classroom hubs in primary and secondary schools and scholarships are given for pupils to study in China for nine months.

Last year, the Ferret published claims by a former Chinese diplomat that Beijing tries to control its international students studying at Scottish universities through student associations.

The Chinese Embassy in London told the website that China has "never, and will never, exert any political influence on normal academic activities in British universities".

The Scottish Government said: “There is no interference in what is taught in Scottish schools. This is decided solely by Scottish councils, schools and our teachers. Schools are supported in delivering this by Scotland’s National Centre for Languages and its sister organisation Confucius Institute for Scotland’s Schools (CISS)."

A government spokesperson added: “Support provided by CISS, including access to native speaking language assistants and immersion trips to China, would not be possible without their partnerships with Chinese institutions. Educational materials and resources provided by CISS are prepared in line with the principles of Curriculum for Excellence.”

Some of John Halley's comments around the period of John Watt QC's trial, which ultimately resulted in a 10 year sentence for Watt.

Is/was Sheriff Duff mixed up in the Establishment child abuse ring? Time I suppose willl tell if his arrest has anything to do with either the child abuse or the Al Megrahi representation during the Locherbie bombing, or something else entirely.

One thing for sure is that the good Advocate, having highlighted establishment abuse with the content of his pinned tweet detailing his "note" (running to 17,500 words) to the Chair (Lady (?) Ann Smith) of the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry (SCAI), in which he refuses to be "…..complicit in, nor tolerate, cover up and failuire to report…or investigate……child exploitation, by lawyers, judges, public figures ano others, to be ignored"; he certainly has a very keen interest in Sheriff Duff.

Until Duff appears in a court to answer the as yet unknown (publicly) charges against him we can only speculate; I don't think it is too much of a stretch to imagine that both he and Watt were mentioned in that 17 and a half thousand word "note", along with former Lord Advocate Hardie.

I'll repeat again, the former Lord president Brian Gill had a 30 year connection to the Catholic Bishops in Scotland and similarly lengthy connection to Queen Elizabeth school in Dunblane. He also suggested that Lady Ann Smith personally request the daughter of Lord Cullen as her personal secretary (keeper of secrets) on the SCAI.

What really fucks me off is that John Swinney is trying to get victims to accept in most cases around 20k in damages while renouncing any further claim against the perpetrators, while this ex priest got 455k in damages.

Honestly, you could never tire of kicking these CUNTS up and down the street, especially Swinney.

I saw some "paperwork" some time ago with the same logo claiming to be the same court, it was all bogus and so badly put together that it made no grammatical sense. It was in rather bizzare circumstance which I went along with; much like the proverbial cat, curiosity got the better of me.

Interesting times, much acting going on everywhere, many around me playing parts

in this theatrical event…….makes me wonder what I'm being engineered into.

I'll continue to follow that white rabbit, but sometimes it feels like I'm that rabbit and all I'm doing is chasing my own tail. ;) This has been a lifelong ride for me, I'll endure it till the end and see where I end up.

It will probably be jail, or being experimented on by big pharma in a mental health facility with thrice daily doses of ECG to compliment the prescribed snake oil of choice. I'll seek a rock hammer when I reach my destination.

Scottish Government Orders Investigation Into Recent Spike in New Born Baby Deaths

By Jim Hoft

Published October 2, 2022 at 8:30am

The Scottish Government announced an investigation of why newborn deaths were higher than expected in both September 2021 and March 2022, as published by Public Health Scotland.

Healthcare Improvement Scotland has been commissioned by the Scottish Government to investigate the high incidence of newborn mortality in the country.

“The review will cover all reported deaths across Scotland between 1 April 2021 and 31 March 2022 to find out if there is anything that may have contributed to the increase. Anything identified will feed into recommendations and actions to improve the quality of care for mother and babies,” according to the news release.

“Once the review team is formed it is expected it will take no longer than six to nine months to complete the work,” it added.

Deaths among infants younger than four weeks old increased to at least 18 in March (4.6 per 1,000 births) and as many as 21 in September (2021) (4.9 per 1,000 births), according to Scottish Daily Express.

“Every death is a tragedy for the families involved, that is why earlier this year I committed to this review to find out if there is a reason for the increase,” Public Health Minister Ms. Todd said.

More from Scottish Daily Express:

While infant death rates vary from month to month, the average among newborns is just over two per 1,000 births with neonatal mortality defined as death within 28 days of birth.

This is the second time since current records began in July 2017 and the second time in six months that the neonatal mortality rate hit 4.8 per 1000 live births, well beyond an upper warning threshold known as the “control limit”.

Coronavirus was suspected of playing a role but experts, while describing the figures as “really troubling” did not directly linked to the virus.

The review will not duplicate any matters which are, or have been, the subject of other review, investigation or audit processes.

Dr Sarah Stock, an expert in maternal and foetal medicine at the University of Edinburgh, told a national newspaper earlier this year: “I think the numbers are really troubling and I don’t think we know the reasons why yet.

“What we do know it’s not neonatal Covid – the rates of Covid-19 infection in babies are very low and deaths from Covid are thankfully very, very small, so this isn’t Covid affecting babies.”

Abuse survivors blast SNP's redress scheme as a cold, unfair and distressing ordeal

Lawyer acting for victims say the Redress Scotland scheme lets organisations that allowed abuse to 'hide from public accountability all while saving cash' as John Swinney is told to get it sorted

News

By Ben Borland Editor

Abuse survivors are turning their back on the SNP Government’s redress scheme amid a catalogue of delays, failures and broken promises.

The damning feedback comes one year after the controversial scheme was launched. The Redress Scotland quango is meant to provide one-off payments between £10k to £100k but victims face confusing paperwork, long delays and being made to feel “like a bullet-point on a to-do list”.

Recent data also shows victim applications have plummeted while appeals to low offers have spiked – all while lawyers see an increase in historic abuse claims.

The response from victims is the latest in a 12-month saga of issues with previous concerns raised on a legal waiver, few payments being made and a lack of scheme contributors.

Campaigners fear the scheme is still not fit for purpose and have called on officials to make drastic improvements to avoid worsening the trauma of survivors.

One victim, who was abused by foster parents in East Lothian, gave up on Redress after initially hoping to get recognition after battling with the trauma in secret for decades.

The woman, who gave evidence at the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry (SCAI) under the name ‘Rosie’, said: “I was taken in by the assurances but I couldn’t believe the utter mess of the process after I applied.

“I was sent away to fill out huge forms and given no guidance and when I did speak to someone I was met with exasperation like I was a bullet-point on their to do list.

“I was sexually abused as a teenager by a family that was meant to care for me. It took me years to come to terms with things and all I hoped for at this stage was some sense of recognition but Redress turned it into an ordeal of its own. The whole process is cold.”

Applications to scheme fell from 402 to just 83

Redress Scotland was launched on 8 December 2021 by the Scottish Government but it was more than six months later than pledged and without appropriate staffing in place.

It works by organisations like religious groups or local councils contributing to a giant pot. Victims abused in a childhood care setting can apply for a payment of £10k but if they feel they deserve more a panel may consider payments of £20k, £40k, £60k, £80k or a maximum of £100k.

Before receiving any money a survivor must sign a legal waiver to never take a scheme contributor to court in the future.

73dcde  No.17782421

………..continued…….. >>17782416

Yet over the last 12 months Deputy First Minister John Swinney has faced complaints of application backlogs, a low rate of payments and a lack of scheme contributors paying into Redress.

The most recent data shows application numbers have plummeted from 402 in January 2022 to just 83 in August – while appeals of low offers rocketed from 9 in February 2022 to 37 in August.

As of August 2022 there were also 1,167 applications that still didn’t even have a case handler allocated.

'All we see is problems, delays or silence'

Another man engaged with Redress after being sexually abused at Balgowan D-List School in Dundee in the 1960s.

The man, who chose to remain anonymous, said: “I applied after providing a 42-page statement to the SCAI where it will be heard in summer of 2023.

“Redress asked for the same information but demanded I write a fresh copy. The time and upset of writing it out twice is disgusting and shows officials either don’t know or don’t care about the way the Redress process impacts people.

“Swinney assured us everything would be swift, professional and caring but it’s been nothing of the kind. All we see is problems, delays or silence and I got so fed up I sought legal advice instead.”

The redress tariff scheme is seen by victims as unfair because it only considers the type of abuse that happened.

Yet civil courts consider the effects the abuse had on a person’s life which is why many survivors can recover sums up to £1million via historic abuse claims.

Kim Leslie, Partner at Digby Brown Solicitors, said: “No tariff-based system is ever fair as capped payments stop survivors getting the recognition they deserve while the waiver strips them of their legal rights.

“Those who stand to benefit the most from this scheme are perpetrators because the scheme lets liable organisations hide from public accountability all while saving cash as it’s cheaper to pay into the scheme than settle court actions.

“Despite the pledges the scheme is clearly still not fit for purpose and it needs a drastic overhaul if it’s to play any positive part in the kind of life-affirming support survivors deserve.”

Operating model has been 'improved'

A Scottish Government spokesman said it was “not possible” to determine an average timescale, but that priority is given to applicants with a terminal illness and those over the age of 68.

“Scotland’s Redress Scheme is designed to be swifter and less adversarial than civil court action, and the number of applications received to date is in line with projections,” he added.

“More than £8m has already been paid out to survivors in less than one year of the scheme being in operation, with 8% of applicants having requested a review out of 189 payment offers.”

The spokesman continued: “In response to feedback received from survivors, the operating model for Scotland’s Redress Scheme has been improved to ensure that applications can be progressed prior to applicants having a case worker allocated.

Scottish covid inquiry thrown into chaos as top lawyers resign just months after launch

Four lawyers working on the inquiry quit last week but their resignations were only made public yesterday.

News

By Chris McCall Deputy Political Editor

A public inquiry into Scotland's handling of the covid pandemic was thrown into chaos last night after it was revealed four members of its legal team had quit.

It comes just days after the top judge appointed to chair the inquiry quit for "personal reasons".

Douglas Ross KC and three junior counsel sent their resignations to Lady Poole, the inquiry chairwoman, last Thursday.

Poole quit the next day but her departure was not announced until Monday by Deputy First Minister John Swinney.

The public inquiry was launched in February and has already cost taxpayers almost £1 million with no estimate of the final cost.

Families who lost loved ones to covid have now demanded the Scottish Government offers an explanation.

Peter Watson, who represents some families whose relatives died in care homes, told The Times : "What we need to know is who is to be appointed as core participants, who they think would be useful to give evidence, if they are going to break it up into modules, as they have in the English inquiry.

"We need timings. We haven't even got premises. The families have had no answers."

The public inquiry into the UK Government's response to the covid pandemic held its first session yesterday. There is no date for when the same will happen in Scotland.

A spokesman for the Scottish Covid-19 inquiry said: "We can confirm that four members of the counsel team have left the inquiry.

"We are immensely grateful for their contribution to the inquiry’s progress and wish them every success."

A Scottish Government spokesman said: "A public inquiry operates independently of ministers. As a result, the procedure, conduct and operation of the inquiry, including staffing and counsel appointments, are matters for the chair.

"The Scottish Government is keen to help ensure the excellent progress made so far by the inquiry is continued. Consequently, work to appoint a new chair is being progressed at pace.

They quit because of Government interference…..Just like the previous chair of the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry (SCAI) Susan O'Brien and her deputy Professor Lamb both citing "Government interference" by none other than John Swinney.

"Recent data also shows victim applications have plummeted while appeals to low offers have spiked – all while lawyers see an increase in historic abuse claims."

"The response from victims is the latest in a 12-month saga of issues with previous concerns raised on a legal waiver, few payments being made and a lack of scheme contributors."

It's not just lawyers making a packet out of all this abuse…while most of the victims are being papped off with a poxy £10k. There's a whole pile of wages to be paid out of the £100+ million promised in contributions from (COSLA) the Association of Scottish Local Authorities including Johnny Gwynne and the other 20 odd staff employed to pay out compensation under the "redress scheme".

COSLA will find their £100+ milllion contributions from the pockets of Council Tax payers.

Scots child abuse survivors slam £10,000 payout plan from government

They say the huge amount of victims means many will receive payments as low as £10,000 or £20,000 – making it meaningless.

By Marcello Mega

22 AUG 2021

Survivors of child abuse in Scottish institutions have warned that £400million Government compensation won’t be enough.

They say the huge amount of victims means many will receive payments as low as £10,000 or £20,000 – making it meaningless.

One survivor, now in his 60s, said: “It will be remembered as a callous and ineffectual system if people who lost their entire childhood while in care, and are affected by it still, are told their lifetime of suffering is worth £20,000.

“Abuse in childhood, especially sexual abuse and violence and the fear that comes with that, affects your entire life.”

The Scottish Government has set up its Redress Scotland scheme to set levels of compensation, with a maximum award of £100,000, and is committed to making payments to all known survivors.

The most likely number of ­survivors is currently estimated at 8000 but could be as high as 10,400 and half of those ­compensated are expected to receive just £10,000 or £20,000.

Survivors believe the final figures should be higher if they are to provide meaningful redress.

There is also growing dismay among survivors that those evaluating their suffering will be paid at levels higher than the figures they can pay out.

The chair, retired deputy chief constable of Police Scotland Johnny Gwynne, will be paid £560 a day to sit, while panel members will receive £390 a day. Redress Scotland’s work is expected to last five years.

The chair is expected to work only six days a month for most of that time, yet that will take his earnings to over £200,000, more than twice the highest award for survivors.

This has caused anger and survivors say the pay levels are “an insult” to them when their awards will be capped at £100,000.

Dave Sharp, a survivor and campaigner on child abuse, said: “Six years into the inquiry, the Government appears not to know how many people will receive awards.

“Yet, while the chair and panel members pick up hundreds of thousands of pounds for judging survivors, half of those who suffered will be sent away with £10,000 or £20,000.

"It’s clear they have not thought this through.”

The Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry was established in 2015 and has so far heard of appalling abuse of children at institutions run by charities, religious orders and private schools.

Its running costs are set to reach the £50million mark in a few weeks.

Jamie Greene, Scottish Tory justice spokesman, said: “Survivors must have full confidence in the independence of the awards panel and know that claims will be processed fairly without influence.”

A Scottish Government spokesman said: “Survivors can have confidence their applications will be looked at with the care and sensitivity which their circumstances so fully deserve.”

This article is more than a year old, the bill is well over £50 million now

Imagine they just paid out all the victims with that and didn't spend it on legal advice, lawyers fees, consultations, 13 years of delay, talking shops, new start businesses (for profit) conveniently in time for the gravy train? This whole system is rotten to the core.

FM denies ferry contract was 'jobs for the boys'

4 November 2022

Nicola Sturgeon has said she "completely and utterly" refutes suggestions of political interference in the award of an ill-fated ferry contract.

She was asked if the award to someone with a known relationship with the government was "jobs for the boys".

The first minister insisted there was "absolutely, categorically" nothing untoward in the procurement process.

MSPs are investigating delays and overspends over two CalMac ferries.

The construction project at Ferguson shipyard in Port Glasgow is five years behind schedule and could end up costing the public purse more than three times the original £97m "fixed price contract" price.

Ms Sturgeon was giving evidence before the public audit committee following a damning report from Audit Scotland which listed "multiple failings" in the process.

The contract was awarded in 2015 to the Ferguson Marine Engineering Ltd (FMEL) shipyard in Port Glasgow, a year after it had been rescued from administration by Jim McColl, a pro-independence businessman who sat on the first minister's council of economic advisers.

Ferries deal awarded without financial safeguards

Conservative MSP Sharon Dowey asked if the award to a firm owned by Mr McColl was a case of "jobs for the boys".

Ms Sturgeon responded: "If you are saying was there anything untoward in this procurement process in order to somehow inappropriately steer this contract towards FMEL, then absolutely, categorically not."

She said she naturally was happy for work to go to a Scottish company which would secure Scottish jobs - but it was important that this was done "by the book".

Continued………

And she insisted the award was made solely on the assessment of the bids by government owned ferry agency CMAL.

Ms Sturgeon accepted that a recent BBC documentary which presented evidence that FMEL was given preferential treatment in the procurement process had raised "serious issues" that should be investigated further.

However, she said she was personally not aware of any impropriety.

The Disclosure programme found that FMEL was allowed to substantially alter its design and price after the tender deadline, and had access to a key CalMac specification "wishlist" that was not available to rival bidders.

Dossier suggests ferry deal may have been rigged

The first minister was asked why then transport minister Derek Mackay approved the final award of the contract to FMEL in October 2015 despite serious misgivings by the CMAL board about the level of financial guarantees being offered.

She said that various mitigations had been sought to reduce the risk and, based on what information was available to him at the time, she thought it was a "reasonable decision".

She said: "To be fair to Derek Mackay, had that 8 October [documentation] been brought to my attention, based on everything that was in that, I am not saying I would have reached a different decision - I don't think I would have done - but perhaps with hindsight it should have been brought to my attention."

Mr Mackay, who left government in 2020 over messages he sent to a 16-year-old boy on social media, appeared before the public audit committee in September.

At the start of the hearing, committee convener Richard Leonard questioned the government's commitment to transparency over the ferry fiasco.

He pointed out that a letter from Mr Mackay, submitted to the hearing by Transport Scotland appeared to have been "edited" to remove two key paragraphs relating to financial guarantees.

The first minister insisted her government was committee to openness, and that she believed the issue of the letter was imply a "formatting" error.

She pointed out that a full version of the same letter had been submitted by SNP MSP Stuart McMillan, who was its recipient.

The first minister said she would look into publishing more documentation including a record of a meeting with Jim McColl in May 2017 at which he raised concerns about the way the project was progressing and the role of the government ferries agency CMAL.

One word which notably has not crossed the first minister's lips today is "sorry".

While Nicola Sturgeon accepts responsibility for what went wrong on her watch, she denies she's to blame.

That's a hard balance to strike.

Especially since this ferry crisis has happened on her watch as first minister - all the way back to late 2014, when she took on the top job.

Within a year, the contract to build two ferries had been awarded to Ferguson shipyard.

By November 2017, the first minister herself was launching the first of the vessels, MV Glen Sannox.

Few there on the day - myself included - knew that ferry was largely unfinished and the engines didn't work.

No-one - including Nicola Sturgeon - knew that five years later, the ferries would still not be ready.

She's said repeatedly the buck stops with her. She is accountable, she insists.

But she clearly sees this as a collective, systemic failure, and not one for which she is personally to blame.

==US cracks down on Confucius Institutes mushrooming in Scotland

29th March 2018==

By David Leask

AMERICAN lawmakers are moving to force Chinese-funded language schools to register as “foreign agents” in a row raising new doubts about Scotland’s controversial Confucius Institutes.

US politicians want universities to declare donations and other financial ties with the Communist authorities behind the hubs, which are now monitored by the FBI, amid growing concerns over academic freedom and censorship.

Their proposed crackdown comes as universities in America and elsewhere pull out of funding arrangements with the Chinese body behind the institutes, Hanban.

Scotland has the world’s highest concentration of Confucius Institutes at universities and Confucius Classrooms at schools, language and cultural education facilities with Chinese-trained and supplied teachers.

Edinburgh Zoo earlier this month announced Scotland’s latest Confucius Classroom as part of its wider relationship with China, from which it rents two pandas.

The expansion of Confucius Institutes north of the border has come despite withdrawals from the scheme elsewhere and on-the-record remarks from Hanban that it would expected its teachers to toe the party line on issues like Taiwan.

Analysis: the soft power of language learning

Edinburgh, Glasgow, Heriot-Watt and Aberdeen universities have Confucius Institutes. Strathclyde University hosts a specialist Confucius Institute which provides teachers to schools.

American Congressman Joe Wilson, discussing proposed legislation on Confucius Institutes, told Foreign Policy magazine he wanted details of deals with US universities out in the open.

He said: “The goal is transparency by the foreign agents themselves and also by the universities. The American people need to know that they are being provided propaganda.”

Scottish universities say they have not had problems which prompted similar organisation overseas to break off ties.

Linda Fabiani MSP, of the Scottish Parliament's cross-party group on Tibet has quizzed some academic institutions on their links.

She said: "I know that there has been concern expressed about Confucius Institutes. Our group wrote to our participating Universities here in Scotland. They were very clear that academic freedom was paramount and that they would not accept any censorship of topics."

Linda Fabiani

A University of Edinburgh spokesman this month said there had been “no loss of academic freedom nor inhibition of academic debate at the University of Edinburgh as a consequence of Hanban’s support for the Confucius Institute”.

Edinburgh is also under fire for awarding an honorary degree to an ally of Vladimir Putin as it obtained funding from the Russian equivalent of Hanban, Russkiy Mir.

John MacDonald, editor of Cable Magazine, Scotland’s specialist foreign policy publication, stressed states had always sought to use soft power in the way Russkiy Mir or Hanban do now. But he added: “The context of this is the increasing confidence with which Russia and China doing so.”

Campaign group Free Tibet has led calls for a rethink of Scotland’s Confucius Institutes.

A campaign spokesman said the US action was “timely and necessary” and stressed there was “little scrutiny” in Scotland. He added: “As Confucius Institutes in US are being urged to disclose their funding as well as the scope of their activities, we urge Scottish educational authorities to be cautious about accepting injections of cash from China given its human rights track record.”

A Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman previously said the institutes help mutual understanding and boosted friendship. She told a news agency criticism was outdated ‘noise” .

==Black Friday early deals

REVEALED: 'English magic' expert was behind Sturgeon's £10bn failed China deal==

UNDER-FIRE Scottish first minister Nicola Sturgeon sought advice from an author of a book on “English magic” before her controversial trip to China, it can be revealed.

By Siobhan McFadyen

The First Minister, who was last week left embarrassed by the collapse of a £10bn trade deal with the country, pleaded for help to find Scottish people to attend events in the Asian country.

And expenses of the trip which took place in July 2015, have still not been released - which is believed to breach the Ministerial code.

To date the up to date costs of the trips have not been published online and the Scottish Government has not responded to a request for the costs.

Now it shown - from a series of emails released - Ms Sturgeon took advice from the author Sir Richard Heygate, who was also a Director of Sino Fortune, the firm behind the £10bn deal, before she flew to the Asian country for the 'top level' diplomatic trade mission that has since been exposed as a sham.

And Sir Richard who had meetings with Ms Sturgeon predicted that China's yuan would "replace the Dollar as international currency" and told her that she should talk about “visions” and “dreams” during her five day junket.

In a series of bizarre emails released by both the Scottish and UK governments under Freedom of Information requests, it can be revealed just how shoddy the trip was. 

Papers show how Ms Sturgeon was asked to rewrite her speech by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office after she tried to mention Hillary Clinton during one of her addresses.

Communications between the SNP led administration and the British Foreign Office also show Ms Sturgeon's officials needed help to find Scots in China to make up the numbers at an event.

In May 2015, just after the General Election, Ms Sturgeon's officials had been in communication with the FCO to discuss the trip.

Ms Sturgeon's special advisors had been asking for help to promote the First Minister during the trip to Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong in which she was to make a number of addresses to "promote Scottish businesses”.

One email on May 27 stated: "We want to make sure we getting things right from a First Minister but also Leader of SNP perspective."

Continued…………..

Another email just days before the trip advised the First Minister's planned speech might be diplomatically questionable.

It states: "Mark asked me to take a look as he is up to his eyeballs. I agree with your points in red - needs more of a Chinese flavour. 

"Separately – a couple of more UK specific points: - Odd to reference Hillary Clinton in first para rather than a Chinese, UK or UN leader."

And another email dated 17th of July revealed the Scottish Government - which claims to have a strong international network - needed help to organise their guest list for a party.

It stated: "Can come back to you with more names for Scotland reception if you want me to."

But perhaps one of the most bizarre communications to come out of the debacle was the advice given to the First Minister from "The Book of English Magic" author Sir Richard Heygate who was providing advice to the Scottish Government.

His book claims to explore the "hidden story, from its first stirrings to our present-day fascination with all things magical. Along the way readers are offered a rich menu of magical things to do and places to visit."

Both Sir Richard and his business partners had been in regular communication with Ms Sturgeon's team before the trip and for at least six months afterwards.

One email stated: "The Chinese hate smart complexity as they feel one is trying to fool them. 

"They also love ‘visions’ and ‘dreams’ in a way we have long forgotten. 

"The FM should emphasise her dream for Scotland and stress how the Scots traded so heavily with China in the past and that the FM is committed to get people to do the same today”. 

It is unknown how much money the trip to China cost the taxpayer as the Scottish Government has never published the figures.

However, the travel and accommodation alone for Ms Sturgeon was £3,920.55 however there was a caveat in reporting those figures with the Scottish Government writing "full costs not yet available, to be updated." 

Despite the trip taking place 17 months ago the First Minister has still not published or revealed how much she billed the taxpayer.

However the Ministerial Code states: "The Minister's Private Secretary must also provide International Division with details of the dates of the visit, countries visited, meetings held, and the names and designations of those who accompanied the Minister and the final costs of the visit including, all flights and travel and subsistence costs.

"International Division will collate this information as a central record, ensuring that up-to-date information on such visits and their costs can be made available at short notice in the event of Ministers being asked to account for their travel."

Now the whole farce is being called into question by taxpayer groups who are becoming increasingly concerned with the First Minister's "amateur" behaviour.

Eben Wilson of Taxpayer Scotland said: "Grand junkets that edge towards political events to capture corporate deals are almost bound to fail.

"Taxpayers have seen their money spent without any real return, it also sounds as if those on the trip were well out of their depth and expecting magic results; the reality is that international business success is hard graft with lots of little twists and turns with private investors taking private risks with their own money not our taxes. 

"Success is not easy.

"That full clarity on the costs of the trip has not been made is worrying.

"In a nation purporting to champion fairness, that total transparency still does not exist for ministerial trips is a disgrace."

The Scottish Government has been approached for comment by Express.co.uk.

Does Q have anything to say on Scotland or the Scottish Child abuse inquiry?

Will revelations out of US trickle down to little Scotland where many Americans have strong ancestral ties, including DJT?

Some of us poor anonymous Scottish fuckers feel like we are banging our heads off a brick wall at times.

Any comment to make on the other 2 international arrest warrants for Scottish Judges including William Nimmo Smith who is currently in Argentina which has no extradition treaty with the UK? Or Al-Megrahi's lawyer currently in custody in relation to the same ring of child abusing Scottish Judges and Lord Hardie's involvement in the cover up (how many Lords are involved just in the child sexual abuse, never mind the medical experimentation on children in collusion with pharma) of all the child abuse or the inclusion of Lord Cullen's daughter on the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry?

Lots and lots of related material here connected to the information posted by Q. I know many Scots follow the Q drops and could do with some hope here.

John Watt QC who was jailed on August 8th 2022 for 10 years for child abuse convictions was arrested on an international arrest warrant in Oklahoma back sometime around September/October 2020 (forget the exact date). Feel free to put a link from any American newspaper who reported on the arrest here. Would like to see how the US press reported on the arrest. Thanks.

Scotland will let pupils change gender aged FOUR without their parents' consent - and tells teachers not to question a child's request to choose a new name or use a different toilet

By Michael Blackley

12 August 2021

Children as young as four will be able to change their gender at school without their parents’ consent under guidance introduced in Scotland.

Any pupil who decides they want to switch gender must be supported and listened to in school following the Scottish Government advice.

The guidance applies in primary schools, where the youngest children are only four or five, because ‘recognition and development of gender identity can occur at a young age’.

It also tells teachers not to question a child who says they want to transition to live as a boy or a girl - and instead ask for their new name and pronouns. 

Primary and secondary schools have also been told to put books featuring transgender people on the curriculum, allow pupils to choose which changing room or toilets to use, and consider introducing a gender neutral uniform.

But the guidance was branded ‘shocking’ and led to concerns that children are being allowed to make life-changing decisions at too young an age.

The advice says: ‘Some young people are exploring their gender identity in primary school settings. Primary schools need to be able to meet the needs of these young people to ensure they have a safe, inclusive and respectful environment in which to learn.’

A section on ‘changing name and recorded sex’ says children simply need to tell others informally that they want to use a different name, and that they don’t need to record this formally on their official school record. Advice to school staff on what to do if a child wants to discuss their gender includes asking ‘what name and pronoun you should use to address them’.

It also says that they should ask if their family are aware they are considering their gender identity – but does not suggest the teacher should contact them.

The guidance document also states that no Scottish law compels people to use the toilets that correspond to the gender they were assigned at birth.

Marion Calder, director of the For Women Scotland campaign group, said: ‘To be transgender you have to have a diagnosis of gender dysphoria. What are they thinking? Parents will be very concerned to be reading this document.’

Scottish education secretary Shirley-Anne Somerville said: ‘This guidance outlines how schools can support transgender young people while ensuring that the rights of all pupils are fully respected.

‘It provides schools with practical suggestions. The guidance is not prescriptive and does not promote transitioning.’

Nearly 1,600 children have type 2 diabetes as a result of England’s obesity epidemic.

NHS figures show that 122,780 people under the age of 40 have the condition. Of these, 1,570 are children aged 18 or under, including 105 under the age of 12 and 545 aged 12 to 15.

Type 2 diabetes was traditionally seen only in the over-40s. But soaring obesity levels mean cases in children are on the rise.

The Young People With Type 2 Diabetes report, published yesterday by NHS Digital, found that under-40s now comprise about 4 per cent of all those with type 2 diabetes. It is more common in young women, Asian people, and those from poorer backgrounds.

The figures show that around nine in ten under-18s with the condition are classified as obese or overweight.

The report said: ‘Obesity is the dominant category of people with type 2 diabetes at all ages up to 60 years but especially so in younger people.’

It can lead to blindness, kidney failure, heart attacks and strokes and is more aggressive in younger adults. Charities said the figures were a ‘worrying wake-up call’.

SNP ministers using chauffeur-driven limos for trips between first and second homes

Exclusive: The Scottish Express has found ministers are using their chauffeur-driven cars to shuttle back and forth even when no engagements appear to be taking place.

SNP ministers who live in the north have been accused of taking advantage of their lavish limo service by taking long journeys between their first and second homes.

The Scottish Government says the taxpayer-funded car service "provides a secure environment to conduct government business while travelling to and from ministerial engagements".

Ministers can also travel to or from a personal address at the start or the end of the working day.

However, the Scottish Express has found that several ministers whose constituencies are in the Highlands – and therefore qualify for an Edinburgh second home – are also using their chauffeur-driven cars to shuttle back and forth on days when no engagements appear to be taking place.

Finance Secretary Kate Forbes, Rural Economy Secretary Mairi Gougeon, public health minister Maree Todd, mental wellbeing minister Kevin Stewart and just transition minister Richard Lochhead are among those to take advantage of the loophole this year alone.

Ms Forbes – who is currently on maternity leave – has made nine 170-mile journeys between her second home in Edinburgh and her main home in Dingwall.

On each occasion, the chauffeur presumably had to make a two-way trip as the car service is based in the capital.

Ms Todd has used a government limo for 19 journeys of 175 miles between Strathpeffer and Edinburgh, while Ms Gougeon has taken 13 journeys of 88 miles between Brechin and Edinburgh.

Mr Stewart has taken six journeys between Aberdeen and Edinburgh (128 miles) and Mr Lochhead took a limo between Elgin and Edinburgh on one occasion this year (172 miles).

All five take advantage of the Edinburgh Second Home Allowance, which allows MSPs who live up north or down south to rent a home in the capital with all expenses paid.

There are regular trains between Edinburgh and Aberdeen and Brechin, while Elgin and Dingwall are also on the rail network.

The MSPs could also drive themselves and claim back the mileage, saving the chauffeur a two-way journey.

Critics called for the practice to stop immediately and branded it an ‘insult’ to Scots suffering from a growing cost of living crisis.

John O'Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said: "Chauffeur perks for politicians drive taxpayers round the bend.

"Some travel will be required in government roles, but ministerial cars are only meant to be used when necessary.

"With the cost of living crisis biting, ministers must not make excessive use of these luxury limos."

Scottish Conservative Transport spokesman, Graham Simpson, said: "This will stick in the throat of hard-pressed Scots. Government limos aren't there for the private use of SNP ministers. It's fair enough to use them for Government business but not to get to and from private addresses, so this kind of practice needs to stop immediately."

Scottish Labour Finance spokesman Daniel Johnson, added: "Taxpayers are footing an eye-watering bill for SNP Ministers to be chauffeured around from one house to another. This is an insult when ordinary people are struggling with the cost of living crisis and the SNP are cutting services to the bone. Next time the SNP are deciding which budget to raid, they should take a look at their own bloated government operation."

Earlier this year, the Scottish Government defended the spend of almost £1million on the ministerial cars in 2021/22 – and made it clear how they are supposed to be used. They said: "Travel is an essential part of official government business and with the recent easing of Covid restrictions more ministerial business has been conducted in person.

"The Government Car Service provides a secure environment to conduct government business while travelling to and from ministerial engagements. We continually look for ways to ensure the Government Car Service is delivered in the most cost-effective manner, offering the best deal to the taxpayer."

A Scottish Government spokesperson said: "Travel is an essential part of official Government business and Ministerial cars are used for business purposes only. Ministers take their responsibility to travel sustainably very seriously and aim to use more sustainable forms of transport wherever possible."

4,000 raped or sexually assaulted in UK hospitals over 4 years, horrifying figures reveal

Shocking figures uncovered in an investigation show a reported 4,000 rape or sexual assaults took place in UK hospitals over the past four years.

By Francesca Edwards

Mon, Nov 28, 2022

The NHS must "urgently investigate" rape and sexual assault in hospitals, the Shadow Health and Social Care secretary said after an investigation uncovered "disturbing" figures. Byline Times unearthed shocking figures claiming 4,100 patients, visitors, and NHS staff who were raped, or sexually assaulted between January 2019 and September 2022.

Labour’s Shadow Health and Social Care Secretary Wes Streeting said: “Hospitals ought to be safe places for patients and staff, but these disturbing findings show that is not the case for far too many people. The NHS should urgently investigate why these disgusting crimes are allowed to happen and on such a widespread scale.”

Data collected from 3 police forces across the country revealed the scale of the issue which included at least three incidents against a female child under the age of 13.

Liberal Democrat spokesperson Daisy Cooper said the figures are "horrifying", demanding an "urgent and comprehensive response" from the Government.

“Hospitals should be safe havens for vulnerable patients, visitors and staff and not somewhere where such abhorrent attacks can ever take place," she added

Navina Evans, chief workforce officer at NHS England said: “The health service must be a safe space for patients, the public and our staff. The NHS does not tolerate any form of sexual misconduct, assault, harassment or abuse in any setting and we are clear that all NHS trusts and organisations must have robust security measures in place to keep everyone who uses their sites safe - ensuring immediate action is taken in any cases reported to them.

“We take all complaints very seriously and I would strongly encourage anyone who has concerns about any form of sexual assault while on an NHS site to come forward, report it and seek support.”

Of he reported allegations, just 5.21 percent resulted in a charge of summons. 

The report added: "One police force, which recorded 161 sexual assault and rapes across hospital estates, shared with Byline Times the reasons why charges were never brought following a reported sexual assault. Concerningly, in 26 rapes and 11 sexual assaults, no suspect was able to be identified. 

"Although most police forces did not provide data on the sex of perpetrators and victims, women are overwhelmingly likely to be the victims of sexual assault, with men most likely to be suspects. Women made up 87.1% of alleged victims in North Wales, and 88% of reports to West Mercia were made by women. "

'Shame on you!': Nicola Sturgeon heckled over Scottish government gender reforms

Scotland's first minister was speaking at an anti-violence against women and girls event in Edinburgh.

By Guy Birchall, news reporter

Wednesday 30 November 2022

Nicola Sturgeon has been heckled over her government's plans to reform the Gender Recognition Act.

Speaking at an event hosted by Zero Tolerance Scotland on Tuesday, one attendee shouted "shame on you" at the Scottish first minister.

In a video posted online, the heckler could be seen yelling: "You are allowing paedophiles, sex offenders and rapists to self-ID in Scotland and put women at risk.

"Women campaigning for women's rights is not against trans people.

"Shame on you, you're letting down vulnerable women in Scotland, not allowed to have their own spaces away from any male."

She claimed women have been raped by trans women - although she didn't cite specific cases.

In response, Ms Sturgeon warned against further stigmatising trans people.

After the clip went viral, the heckler was praised by JK Rowling, who has been an outspoken critic of the reforms, with the author tweeting she would like to send the woman "a crate of her favourite tipple".

The Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill proposes to remove the requirement for a medical diagnosis of gender dysphoria as a condition of acquiring a gender recognition certificate.

The bill would also drop the minimum age of applicants from 18 to 16, as well as dropping the amount of time most applicants need to live in their acquired gender to three months, with a further three-month reflection period, from two years.

Amendments to the bill at stage two mean the time limit for 16 and 17-year-olds is increased to six months, while another provision was inserted to say the bill would have no impact on the Equality Act.

Concerns have been raised about the impact the bill could have on single-sex spaces, with some critics saying it could put women at risk - a charge Ms Sturgeon and the Scottish government have repeatedly denied.

Under the 2010 Equality Act, people who have undergone gender reassignment can be legally refused entry to single-sex spaces for certain reasons, such as a women's refuge or changing area.

Last week, the Scottish government backed an amendment to the bill which said it would not impact on the Equality Act, put forward by Labour MSP Pam Duncan-Glancy.

'Important voices are heard'

The heckler also hit out at event organisers, who had asked attendees to refrain from talking about the gender reforms.

After the woman appeared to be removed from the room, the Ms Sturgeon apologised if her being there had sparked the confrontation.

"I do not, as I know this organisation does not, seek to close down anyone's freedom of speech," she added.

"It's important that voices are heard, but it is important that all of us get the opportunity to speak freely about these issues.

"What we shouldn't do is further stigmatise a group of women who are too stigmatised already."

Ian Blackford to stand down as SNP leader at Westminster

Ian Blackford is to stand down as leader of the SNP group at Westminster, it has been confirmed.

Mr Blackford said he believed it was time for "fresh leadership" after five years in the role.

He said he would formally stand down at the group's annual general meeting next week.

There has been speculation in recent weeks that some SNP MPs were plotting to replace Mr Blackford as group leader.

In a statement, he said he would continue in his role as the MP for Ross, Skye and Lochaber and had also accepted a new role at the centre of the SNP's independence campaign.

Mr Blackford said: "After more than five years in the role, now is the right time for fresh leadership at Westminster as we head towards a general election and the next steps in winning Scotland's independence.

"During my time as leader, the SNP won a landslide victory in the 2019 general election, with an increased share of the vote and MPs, and support for independence has continued to grow with polling this week showing a majority in favour."

Mr Blackford has become as well-known figure in the House of Commons through his weekly appearance at Prime Minister's Questions and is seen as being a close ally of First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, the SNP leader.

He faced calls to resign from political opponents after the Daily Mail reported in June that it had obtained a recording of Mr Blackford urging fellow MPs to give "absolute full support" to SNP MP Patrick Grady, who was suspended for sexual misconduct.

Mr Grady, a former SNP chief whip, was suspended from Parliament for two days over a sexual advance towards a colleague in 2016, and also suspended from the SNP's Westminster group for a week.

Ms Sturgeon subsequently said that the support expressed for Mr Grady had been "unacceptable".

There have been reports that some SNP MPs were also unhappy at Mr Blackford's handling of the case, with Aberdeen South MP Stephen Flynn recently dismissing suggestions that he was "on manoeuvres" with a view to replacing him as group leader.

At the time, Mr Blackford made clear that he intended to stand for re-election to the post at the upcoming AGM.

He also denied rumours in March that he was considering resigning amid further reports of party infighting.

SNP sources have told BBC Scotland that they expect Mr Flynn to stand for the leadership, and that he has broad support among their MPs and may be the only candidate to succeed Mr Blackford.

The Westminster group's AGM will be held next Tuesday, with the leader being selected by the 44 MPs who currently hold the SNP whip.

It means the new leader will be in place to face Rishi Sunak at Prime Minister's Questions the next day,

Mr Blackford defeated former Liberal Democrat leader Charles Kennedy to become the MP for Ross, Skye and Lochaber in 2015, with his campaign being mired in controversy over online abuse aimed at Mr Kennedy and his long-running battle with alcoholism.

Brian Smith, who was convenor of the SNP's Skye and Lochalsh branch, later resigned after it was reported that he had called Mr Kennedy a "drunken slob" and "quisling-in-chief" in a series of more than 130 tweets.

continued. …..

Mr Kennedy died of a major haemorrhage linked to his alcoholism just three weeks after the election.

It is only a fortnight since Ian Blackford made clear he would stand again for the leadership of the SNP group at Westminster at their annual meeting next week.

At that point, his MP colleague Stephen Flynn insisted he did not intend to put his name forward, despite reports suggesting he was preparing to challenge for the job.

Mr Flynn is now expected to stand and may be the only candidate. So what's changed?

It seems a majority of SNP MPs made clear they favoured a leadership change and that Mr Blackford decided to stand down to avoid a challenge he might not win.

There have been rumblings about his position for a while, not least since the controversy over his handling of a harassment complaint against the MP Patrick Grady.

Others say his leadership has not been inclusive enough with high profile MP Joanna Cherry - who has criticised the leadership over women's rights and its independence strategy - sacked from the party's front bench team.

Presentational grey line

Ms Sturgeon said Mr Blackford had led the party's Westminster group at a time of "huge electoral success".

She added: "I would like to place on record my thanks for Ian's diligence, tenacity, friendship and loyalty in his time as group leader.

"I look forward to working with Ian's successor as group leader at Westminster, as we continue to make the case for the people of Scotland to have a democratic choice on the country's future."

SNP MP Joanna Cherry, who has been an outspoken critic of Ms Sturgeon's leadership, tweeted that she was "pleased to hear" that Mr Blackford was standing down as it was "time for fresh leadership and tolerance of debate and diverse viewpoints."

She added: "I hope the SNP Westminster group will be now be left to choose our new leader without outside interference and in accordance with our standing orders."

Labour's shadow Scottish secretary Ian Murray said Mr Blackford's decision to stand down showed that the SNP was in "total disarray".

He added: "Nationalist MPs know Nicola Sturgeon's plan for a de facto referendum is finished before it is even started and are worried about Labour gaining seats."

Scottish Conservative chairman Craig Hoy said Mr Blackford should have been "sacked immediately" by Ms Sturgeon over his support for Mr Grady, and accused the first minister of showing a "total lack of judgement".

He added: "It is clear that, unlike Nicola Sturgeon, SNP MPs were not prepared to forgive how Ian Blackford put the needs of the perpetrator above the victim who had bravely come forward in this case.

"The SNP Westminster group are clearly in a state of disarray and Nicola Sturgeon is rapidly losing her grip over her party."

High court

Kerelaw: John Muldoon and Matthew George guilty of sexual abuse

TWO men who worked at a Stevenston school for troubled children have been found guilty of the horror abuse of almost 30 pupils.

Former art teacher Matthew George, 73, and care worker John Muldoon, 69, were convicted after a fresh probe into how youngsters were treated at Kerelaw residential school.

Jurors heard how physical and sexual attacks were "rife" with children too scared to report their ordeals at the time.

George, of Largs, was today convicted of a total of 39 charges involving 21 boys and girls.

Muldoon, of Irvine, was found guilty of 16 of the charges he faced. These listed nine children including the rape of two girls.

Two of the victims were abused by both.

The pair had previously been jailed in 2006 for abuse at Kerelaw.

George was locked up for 10 years and Muldoon two-and-a-half years.

But they were hauled back into the dock in 2017 amid new allegations.

This led to a two-month trial at the High Court in Glasgow, which saw jurors convict them again today.

The pair had been on bail but were remanded in custody as a judge warned them they face "significant" sentences in the New Year. 

The crimes occurred between 1975 and 2000.

George had been a teacher at Kerelaw for 29 years.

The school - run by Strathclyde Regional Council and then Glasgow City Council - closed in 2006.

Victims - with much of the evidence recorded and played before jurors - spoke of being abused by George there and at his home in Largs.

As well as horrific sexual abuse, the court heard of physical violence which included children being put down holes while also being punched and hit.

Putting allegations to George, prosecutor Paul Kearney KC said: "A picture of routine violence and it being ignored?"

George: "That is the picture some are painting."

Terrified victims were scared to complain as they feared "repercussions".

……continued

George - who also taught physical education - was described by one victim as the "leader of the boys".

Mr Kearney: "You would show off your karate moves."

George denied this.

Mr Kearney: "Evidence shows us that violence was rife and tolerated by staff."

George: "Violence was not rife - absolutely not the case."

Mr Kearney: "The evidence from (one witness who worked at Kerelaw) was that members of staff would line up boys in the gym hall and hit them with golf balls.

Mr Kearney: "If done in the open, even all the more blatant?"

George: "It did not happen."

The advocate depute: "A pretty clear sign things were rotten at Kerelaw?"

George: "It did not happen."

Mr Kearney: "The evidence from (one witness who worked at Kerelaw) was that members of staff would line up boys in the gym hall and hit them with golf balls.

"There was laughter about this and it was said: 'This is what we do'.

"She was uncomfortable, but that was the whole ethos of the place."

George: "I did not line up boys."

The court also heard how one boy was booted on the ankles as he recovered from breaking them weeks earlier.

Another was kept in the cells of the secure unit area of the school for more than a fortnight having been assaulted.

One boy was also battered with a mop handle and forced to eat soap.

George also denied on of his "methods" was to lure victims to his home - some who could vividly recall what it looked like.

But, the pervert claimed it was "common knowledge" where he stayed.

George was mainly convicted of indecent and physical assaults.

Muldoon - who worked in the secure unit - also put young victims through harrowing ordeals.

The sexual and physical violence he doled out included raping two teenage girls.

He also attacked one boy with a mallet and put a lit cigarette on one girl's arm.

A number of the victims in the case have since passed away before they could see justice being served.

After the verdicts, Mr Kearney said eight victims had written statements about their ordeals for judge Lady Drummond to read.

She went on to tell George and Muldoon: "You have been convicted of charges involving sexual and physical abuse on children in your care over decades.

"You will be sent to prison for a significant period of time."

Muldoon winked to relatives as he was led handcuffed to the cells. George waved to those with him.

They will be sentenced on January 13 in Livingston.

Senior Investigating Officer, DI Ross Black, Police Scotland, said: “Police Scotland would like to thank everyone who came forward to police during this investigation. Their engagement, bravery and commitment helped secure the verdict today.

“We hope that people can now be confident in coming forward to police knowing that no matter the passage of time, justice like today’s verdict has underpinned what can be achieved.

“Police Scotland is committed to identifying and bringing to justice those responsible for these crimes.

“We are, and will continue, to investigate all aspects of child abuse in these former residential care establishments, and I would urge anyone who may have experienced abuse at the school but not yet come forward to police to do so.”

Service launched for children not attending school in Glasgow

By Lauren Brownlie

Senior reporter

2 December 22

A first-of-its-kind service has been launched to provide support to Glasgow primary and secondary school children who are finding it difficult to attend school.

Quarriers has been awarded the contract for Glasgow’s first Emotionally Based School Non-Attendance service which will be available to all primary schools and secondary schools to help children and their families develop a plan towards positive steps back into education.

Within Glasgow City Council schools, the number of children with under 80% attendance has increased from 12.30% to 14.70% between August to December 2020 and the same period last year.

REACH (Respond, Engage, Ask, Connect, Hope), has been launched in association with Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership and will provide targeted support to children who have prolonged non-attendance or are starting to show signs of developing a non-attendance profile at school.

The service aims to promote the well-being of every child to ensure they can be supported to reach their full potential.

There are many complex reasons why children don’t attend school including poor mental health, anxiety, language and communication difficulties or other concerns.

Colin Simpson, service co-ordinator of Quarriers REACH service, said: "What is different about this service is that we are able to go into the community and spend time with the children and their families at home to overcome some of their anxieties and mental health challenges.

“We will provide a supportive relationship in the home and help the young people on a journey back towards their learning.”

Barry Syme, Glasgow City Council's principal educational psychologist, said the aim was to intervene early to support young people and help divert them from the adult mental health system and much worse outcomes and more expensive interventions.

He added: "Covid prevented a lot of young people experiencing opportunities because they were at home and that is going to be a real challenge and we probably haven't seen what the impact of that has been."

REACH has specially trained staff who can offer one-to-one, child-centred support to help build the strengths of each child and discover what works best for them.

Workers can help act as a bridge between the school, help the child gain access to support already available within the school, or where appropriate will refer to services out with, for example, social work or health and educational psychologists.

The team will also help parents understand the pressures on children and help them support their child toward positive destinations.

A request for a referral can be emailed to reachservice@quarriers.org.uk or contact the service on the REACH Team Leader’s direct contact number - 07827 042202.

Just like any other cold.

I'm still convinced it was no coincidence they used the coronavirus as the vehicle for their jabs…the virus seems to be taking out a few royals along the way; will it usher in a new one? I don't know. I do know that those that for generations have presided in the gutting of personal freedoms for the people should never be considered for a moment.

If that's the way we go once wrongs have been righted it better be someone who knows their place is of subservience to the rest of us and not one of dominance.

>>17872657

>Any idea why Blackford is really stepping down?

Honestly? No.

I'd not be in the least surprised to find it was in connection to John Watt QC and the wider circle of people that were/are involved in child abuse. I don't know though. I do know that the SNP for what must be approaching the end of their 4th (?) term in office and for all of it they have done everything they could to sweep it all under the carpet.

There is so much corruption on so many levels that it could be a number of them.

I do know that there is a change most demonstrable in the arrest and conviction of John Watt QC and it is having a knock on effect. Grindingly slow are the wheels of justice but they do seem to be turning in the right direction.

Have you any idea yourself?

>Is there a Scottish word for "boondoggle?"

I thought it "was" a Scottish word, it sounds like a word a Scot might make up.

According to this..

https://www.history.com/news/where-did-the-word-boondoggle-come-from

the word origninates in New York and appears to relate to "neckerchief slides" which in the Boy Scouts is known as a "woggle". Could it be a NY attempt at something like "rhyming slang" common in the UK particularly among east enders from London? The cockney is a dying breed in London. It seems we Brits are being disposed of by our own government and replaced.
