will-westminster-proscribe-the-snp-forcing-an-election-in-scotland-returning-the Unionists-to-power-part-4- Whitehall and its spooks are fighting back










 The 2017 General Election and Whitehall Mandarins involvement in Scotland

The Unionist Party’s manifestos could have been written on a fag packet since they were almost entirely free of anything meaningful to the electorate in Scotland.

It comprised a single battle cry attacking the most progressive and universally admired politician in Scotland Nicola Sturgeon. Stating:

” Scots are fed up being persecuted by the SNP leader who is solely intent on getting independence at any cost. As a result, Scotland is suffering hugely. The majority of Scottish voters wish to remain in the British union, despite Nicola Sturgeon’s latest demands for a Scottish referendum.”

This was entered on the internet in the form of a petition requiring a simple yes/no answer.

The signed petition would be presented to the Westminster government, by the Scottish Home Secretary for debate in the House of Commons, dependent on the number of signatures gained.

The Unionists then embarked on a well planned and effectively coordinated campaign mutually supportive each of the other Unionist party’s including campaigning, canvassing and lowering of the profile of their candidate where an agreement was in place, effectively ganging up on the SNP.

It was a voting strategy, new to UK politics which, using predictive data models identified, engaged and persuaded voters to turnout.

This was achieved through the use of internet, phone and personal surveys combined with many other data sets, created by teams of contracted data scientists, psychologists and political consultants allowing the campaign to map the Scottish electorate based on ideology, demographics, religious beliefs, strongly held opinions on key issues e.g. independence, the Orange Lodge, Celtic, Rangers, the SNP and or political personalities.

The information gathered provided Whitehall and psy-ops” personnel with a predictive analysis based on thousands of data points on just about every voter in Scotland.

From that teams of Unionist political consultants and psychologists at Whitehall directed the campaign and candidates on what and how to say it to selected groups of voters.

Wider voter targeting, included use of Facebook adverts, one to one scripted phone calls and provision of the content of messages for door-to-door canvassers ensuring consistent communication with voters on any issue.

What won the day for the Unionists in 2017 was that they utilised “data mining” to gain a comprehensive understanding of the Scottish electorate and then used every communication aid available facilitating discussions with voters about matters important to them as individuals.

Throughout the campaign, the Unionist tactic was to constantly broadcast the “no new referendum” message stressing that this was an important major difference between the Unionists and any other candidates, firmly registering this in the minds of the electorate.

In contrast, the SNP campaign was old-style directed at the Scottish electorate as a group entity which failed to inspire voters in constuencies at risk. Information is power.

Their aim was achieved. The result of the election was a setback for the SNP and its ambitions for independence

The petition was subsequently revealed to be a “data mining ploy” prepared then entered up on the internet by military personnel of 77 Brigade recently formed “Psy ops” unit.

The tactic proved to be successful in raising the public profile of the possibility of another independence referendum, which (at the time) had not been given mention by anyone other than Unionist politicians.

Note: The term “psy-ops” new to the vast bulk of the Scottish electorate suggested an internet underworld of misinformation and mind-mapping.

In Nazi Party parlance, it is a reworking of the term “propaganda.” which is designed to condition the target audience to think and act in a way advantageous to the proponent.



Use of gathered data – analysis of the Petition outcome

Information was extracted providing total numbers by Scottish constituency. Electorate totals were included and a percentage signatory total was established for each constituency.

The mean figure of 3.75% was then used to forward project the outcome of another independence referendum, should one be held after Brexit.

The figures suggested that from an electorate of 4,021,203 the outcome of another referendum would result in a: 48.00% “Yes” vote in favour of independence with 52.00% preferring to remain with the Union.

The information was used to forward plan strategy.

Edinburgh, Aberdeen, East Renfrewshire and East Dunbartonshire recorded much higher than average figures favouring remaining with the Union.

Others appeared to be less fixed.



The “psy-ops” 2017 General Election Forecast

The 2017 General Election in Scotland would be a re-run of the 2015 election referendum but the freakish landslide victory achieved by the SNP would not be repeated.

The analysis suggested 25 seats could change hands in favour of the Unionists.

SNP activists would need to be actively deployed campaigning in the under-noted constituencies otherwise they could be lost.

This group of seats were Unionist target marginals – Risk decreasing as the % number drops:

71749: Edinburgh W, Michelle Thomson MP : 4388-6.12%  Lib gain

69982: East Renfrew, Kirsten Oswald MP: 4241-6.06%  Tory gain

68609: Banff & Buchan, Dr e Whiteford MP: 2772-4.04%   Tory gain

60% of the target seats were taken by the Unionist parties.






Formal identification of an agent of the Secret Service is only possible if they have been formally exposed as such and the incidence of revelations is rare.

So it is a guessing game at best and requires a deal of thought and investigation before levelling an allegation and I make no claim against anyone in this blog. I will have to be content to flag up persons of interest as “dangles”



Dangle 1: Kate Watson:

She graduated with a postgraduate qualification in terrorism studies in 2013, was the 2014 Scottish Independence Referendum, Better Together, Director of Operations and the Scottish Labour candidate for Glasgow East is believed to be a member of the Berkshire-based 77th Brigade.

After the 2014 referendum, she got a job working for Consequitur, a consultancy owned by former Labour shadow foreign secretary Douglas Alexander. Read what her own party rag alleges:

Dangle 2: Douglas Alexander:

In one of recent tweet’s he wrote; ” The Labour Party of Smith, Cook, Brown & Dewar knew that, as democratic socialists & internationalists, our responsibility is to oppose nationalism not enable it.”

Dangle 3: Alistair Cameron:

Cameron excelled in the military, finishing top of a “staff training course” attended by 120 officers.

Captains are required to attend and pass the “staff training course” within a set period. Failure prevents promotion beyond the rank of Major. Many leave the service at this time.

But Cameron finished “top” of the course he attended and would be fast-tracked promoted through the ranks to command his regiment and then on to the position of General.

Cameron leaving the army makes no sense except that another, more satisfying career beckoned. EG Secret services.

His appointment deciding and guiding the activities of “Union in Scotland” is puzzling but these articles provide an explanation:

Pamela Nash: Dangle 4:

Nash was a parliamentary officer for the Young Fabians and a member of the Scottish Youth Parliament, where she served on the executive committee and was the convener of the External Affairs Committee.

She interned for John Reid MP, for one year as his constituency assistant and was subsequently employed as his SpAd for a period of three years.

Reid fixed it for her on his promotion to the House of Lords when the Monklands mafia ensured she would be elected as the Member of Parliament for Airdrie and Shotts in 2010.

Coatbridge; The labour legacy summarised:

“Coatbridge? Have you been there, I live there, after decades of the Labour Party doing no more than plan the after election celebrations Coatbridge is in what only can be described in the local Scottish saying, ” a midden”.

Coatbridge used to be a town, Labour put paid to that. They knocked all the shops down and spent a fortune planting trees, these were then knocked down by the local neds so we ended up in a town with spaces, then someone built Asda and Coatbridge became known as Asda town.

Then, with the help of Maggie Thatcher the last of Coatbridge’s industries were demolished a retail park was built and given the name the Faraday park but locally known as the FARAWAY park, since it is too far away from the Town Centre for those but the fittest or car owners to enjoy.

We’ve also got a pedestrian area where the only risk is getting knocked down by a car or small truck.

Coatbridge council who can’t believe that any party other than Labour have the right to join in the local elections is known as the Monklands Mafia mainly because most officials were related to local Councillors and many are still.

In the event of independence, the Monklands Mafia would set up a committee to consider a referendum on creating the Socialist State of Coatbridge, so as to protect the careers of Labour Party members.”

Nash lost her seat in Parliament in 2015 due to he abjectly poor performance but surfaced in 2016 as a leading figure in the newly formed “Scotland in Union”

More of Nash here:





Dangle 5: John Reid:


While he was Secretary of State for Scotland, John Reid became the first senior cabinet member ever to be severely censured by the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards, Elizabeth Filkin. Reid was accused of using parliamentary allowances, taxpayer’s money, to pay the salaries of his son and other staff working for Labour’s electoral campaign. In the course of the inquiry, it emerged that Reid had held, “discussions” with witnesses, “which in plain unparliamentary language sounded a lot like threats”.

In recent times he regularly Lobby’s fellow lords in the House of Lords and other movers and shakers in the corridors of power in Westminster seeking to use his influence, expanding counterintelligence and control over the UK citizenship mirroring the much detested, “Homeland Security” arrangements in place in the USA. He is committed to these, behind the scenes expensive measures through his employment with the Chertoff Group, (founding member of the company and Ex-Secretary, U.S. Department of Homeland Security (2005 – 2009)

Andrew Skinner: Dangle 6:

Leading member of Scotland in Union he really is a nasty piece of work.

In the 2015 General Election, he and his supporters’ actively assisted Unionist strategy which included tactical voting in 30  constituencies aimed at defeating the SNP and stemming the nationalist tide.

A group of young Labour party activists, led by Skinner, spent a morning distributing Tory election campaign leaflets in the Labour stronghold of North Muirton, in Perth, trying to persuade people to vote Tory.

Victor Clements, Director of “Forward Together”, a local tactical voting campaign said, “they did really well and the Tory’s bought them lunch afterwards, it’s quite surreal when it comes down to it.”

Skinner said, “One of our main motto’s is country before party.” His group, “United Against Separation”, were also very busy in Gordon, delivering thousands of leaflets urging Labour and Tory voters to back the incumbent Liberal Democrat, Christine Jardine.

Skinner said, “We got Tory voters galore in Gordon. We hit the Tory areas pretty hard and we saw nothing of the SNP. They can try painting us as Tories or Lib Dems and we can show them the areas we’ve hit for Labour. We are at every party and no party.”

The blog on Skinner is well worth a read.






Jim Gallagher: Dangle 7:

Another Scotland in Union advisory-board member, Gallagher, a former Whitehall civil servant was Director Of Research for “Better Together” during the referendum, and appeared in numerous newspapers as author of a deranged fantasy piece about how wonderful life would be for Scotland inside a unicorns-and-kittens post-Brexit UK, with no mention made of his positions in either BT or SIU.




There are many many more dangles to name but I will do so only if there is interest







Will-westminster-proscribe-the-snp-forcing-an-election-in-scotland-returning-the Unionists to Power-part-3- Early Days But The Secret Service is Flexing its Muscles in Scotland





The British Secret Service (SIS)

The security service is comprised of three branches each of which provides graduates, postgraduates, linguists, IT specialists and writers a wide range of career opportunities in intelligence work.

MI5:  Staff 4000: It is responsible for protecting the UK against covertly organized threats to national security encompassing terrorism, espionage and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.

MI6: Staff 3500: Operates in secret overseas, recruiting and developing foreign contacts and gathering intelligence.

An opportunist organization it identify’s then exploits favorable circumstances avoiding risks to national security, military capability, and prosperity.

Its remit also includes counter-terrorism, resolving international conflict and prevention of the spread of nuclear and other non-conventional weapons.

GCHQ: Staff 6000: It is the UK government’s expert in cybersecurity, using technical expertise to provide intelligence, protect information and inform government policy.

Note: In the case of MI5 there are probably less than fifty agents fitting the James Bond profile.

The bulk of the remaining group of specialist agents are operating in England and Ireland but a cadre of around 250 are probably permanently deployed in Scotland.

Contrary to popular perception many agents fulfill mundane duties, such as research, office and other administration work.

Once in there is no “out” although the pursuit of other careers is encouraged, if applicable.

There is another group recruited directly from University and deployed to intelligence gathering duties, media manipulation and deep penetration of subversive groups.

Many of this last lot are “deep throat” agents located career term within the ranks of senior people in Universities, politicians, police, charities and other institutions of power.

Glasgow University Officers’ Training Corps

The University of Glasgow’s links with the British military can be traced back to the Jacobite risings of 1715 and 1745 when companies of Militia were raised to defend the unionist supporting University against the Jacobites.

During the First World War in Glasgow, by the summer of 1916, around 2,800 officers had been trained by the University.

In the Second World War, the UOTC’s role was to train officers from University students conscripted into the Army and to provide basic training for those who remained behind as a Home Guard unit.

Glasgow UOTC still exists and is still based at the drill hall in University Place.


Davidson holding centre stage




Professor Adam Tomkins appointed – Chair of Public Law (John Millar School of Law) 2003

Tomkins, with established links to family members who are also very senior officers in the Foreign Affairs branch of the US State Department, is an intellectual and political genius, (but only in his own mind and imagination) and a leading constitutional scholar and hard-line republican relocated to Scotland from England in 2003, taking up employment with Glasgow University as a lecturer in constitutional law.

His previous employment had been teaching English law in English educational establishments and his appointment to a prestigious post remitting him to inform students of Scottish law created disquiet in the minds of some and raised the question.

Is this guy for real or is he a British Secret Service plant? His behavior since confirms the latter assertion.

The timing of his transfer to Scotland taking up a position the requirements of which his previous employment gave no indication of knowledge suited to his new environment.

But his new employment was by design since it provided him with safe passage into the heart of the Scottish Socialist Party (SSP) where he was able to influence policy and report rumors, weaknesses and internal strife within the party.





2004: The Calton Hill Independence Rally

On the day her majesty, Queen Elizabeth officially opened the new £431 million Scottish Parliament building at Holyrood it was revealed that no one would face criminal charges over the fiasco of overcharging.

As expected the Crown Office and the Procurator Fiscal declared there were no grounds for complaint after a probe into the awarding of contracts for the Holyrood site.

The Scottish Socialist Party (SSP) coordinated a rally for independence at Calton Hill in October 2004 at which the “Declaration of Calton Hill”, setting out a vision of an inclusive and outward-looking Scottish republic was presented.

The case was advanced for a Scottish socialist republic without a monarchy or nuclear weapons, with a currency independent of England, a much-reduced level of military spending and a relationship with the European Union safeguarding Scotland’s independence.

Addressing a cheering crowd, Law Professor, Adam Tompkins of Glasgow University, reminded them of the Queen’s previous reluctance to pay tax despite her massive income.

He said that the queen had special powers or `prerogatives`, which included being able to appoint anyone she liked as Prime Minister.

You cannot sue the monarchy. He said Tony Blair used these special powers to attack Iraq and there would have no Iraq war without the crown.

In a democracy, it is the people who are sovereign and not the crown! He urged the abolition of the monarchy preaching, “If you want democracy down with the crown!”





2003: The rise and fall of Tommy Sheridan and the Scottish Socialist Party

Tommy Sheridan, Colin Fox and other left-wing activists had started making significant in-roads into Scottish politics causing concern in London, triggering long-established controlling mechanisms implementation of which would be charged to the British Secret Services.

Tomkins established strong links with senior members of a rapidly expanding SSP through the common cause of republicanism.

In the 2003 Holyrood election, the SSP increased their MSP representation from one to six and a number of independent MSP’s also entered the new “rainbow parliament”.

In the first year of the new parliament, the SSP fought for policies such as free school meals and an end to prescription charges (both introduced in a later parliament by SNP) and campaigned against Home Office dawn raids to remove failed asylum seekers.

But the outward show of unity was deceiving, all was not well, information was released to the press that the party was heavily in debt and in November 2004, its leader, Tommy Sheridan announced his resignation.

A Sheridan supporter of long-standing, Colin Fox, who had been elected as a Socialist MSP in 2003, took over and in parliament under his leadership, the SSP continued to pursue its socialist policies, frequently disrupting parliamentary business by way of volatile protest.

At that time Rupert Murdoch’s, “News of the World” exposed and destroyed Sheridan’s political career alleging sexual misconduct in office, using information gathered through knowledgable contacts within the party, another intelligence gathering and, illegal phone tapping of Sheridan and his close friends and political and legal advisors.

The editor of the News of the World in Scotland was Bob Bird, the then-husband of the recently appointed BBC news-reader Jackie Bird who had returned to Scotland from London.

Sheridan won a £200,000 defamation action and costs, despite eleven party figures, including Fox, Kane, and Leckie, giving evidence against him.

Sheridan left the Party and went on to set up a new left-wing party, “Solidarity.”

The News of the World refused to give up its attacks on Sheridan and the case rumbled on between 2004 – 2016.

The Strathclyde Police triggered “Operation Rubicon” which was set up to run in parallel with a wider inquiry into alleged criminality at the News of the World in London.

The fall out included: A jail sentence for Sheridan. The closure of the News of the World in Scotland then later in England and many charges of illegal phone tapping and fraud being lodged by legal authorities against Sheridan, Bob Bird, and Andy Coulson.

A classic MI5 operation which resulted in the rejection by the electorate of the SSP and Solidarity Partys in the 2007 Scottish election. They have never recovered from the impact of the attacks on their political credibility.

There are a number of persons of interest who may have had a role to play in the operation (the public might never know for sure).

Adam Tomkins, Colin Fox, Jackie Bird, Bob Bird, Rupert Maxwell, Andrew Fulton, Andrew Dunlop, Andy Coulson, Carolyn Leckie, Rosemary Kane.

Will Westminster Proscribe the SNP Forcing an Election in Scotland – Returning the Unionists to Power – Part 2



Image result for british secret service fulton




2008: Growing support for the SNP in Scotland triggered the activation of a secret MI5 anti-nationalist working group.

In 2008 the growth in nationalist support in Scotland alarmed the US and Westminster.

The Labour Party was in meltdown and it was entirely possible an SNP government would be in place at Holyrood in 2009.

This would bring with it calls for Scottish independence and a referendum.

There were also on-going problems within the Scottish Tory Party, which had suffered yet another bad election defeat.

Voices within the Party in Scotland had begun to raise the spectre of a split from Westminster control so that the Party in Scotland would revert to its former Unionist Party status forming its own distinctly Scottish policies whilst retaining a more hands-off relationship with the Conservative Party at Westminster.

The long-prepared (anti-nationalist strategy), designed to deal with these potential problems was put in place.

British (Scots) spymaster Fulton, (a close colleague of Rikind’s for many years) was identified as the most effective “agent for change” available and it was agreed he would apply himself and his extensive resources to the tasks of completing a root and branch reorganization of the party in Scotland, removing any person, (no matter how senior) who did not fully commit to Westminster Conservative Party ideals.

He would also design a long term strategy undermining the SNP government ensuring any referendum for independence would fail.

It was believed that the SNP would then fall apart in the aftermath of a failure to gain independence and Ruth Davidson would take on the role of First Minister of the Scottish government.


Fulton is a major player in the military corporate nexus.

He has been placed in an overtly political position because the UK government is extremely worried about Scottish secession.

He is there to coordinate the destabilization of the SNP government.

Golf and cappuccinos are just distractions, he is a very dangerous individual.

His and the British Secret Service links with right-wing elements in control of Glasgow University was exposed in the under noted blog.




2014: The political meltdown of the unionist party’s in Scotland

The British secret services briefed the membership of Inner Privy Council that through their efforts and those of the entire Westminster political spectrum the end of the SNP would not be long delayed since Scots were disillusioned and ready to accept the retention of the Union.

But events in the 2015 General Election just about destroyed the morale of the Unionists after the Scottish electorate just about wiped out their branch office colleagues north of the border returning 56 MP’s from 58 vacancies.

The “Inner Privy Council” authorized the implementation of “plan-b” which included deployment of all available resources against the SNP government.

The leading role in implementing the strategy to destroy the SNP would be removed from politicians and transferred to the Secret Services.

Special Branch “spies” are firmly embedded within the civil service and in the government in Scotland. Their mission being to leak intelligence to Whitehall.

There are also political “sleepers” tasked with disrupting the business of the Scottish government.

The US has plans in place to ensure its nuclear deterrent interests in Scotland are not threatened and the CIA are providing full support to the UK Special Branch.

Signal and human intelligence resources are in place on the internet.
