Hague States Scotland is not a State

Commonwealth Games-William Hague Sets the Record Straight. Paraphrasing his briefing;

William Hague, clarifying Westminster’s official view of the Commonwealth Games insisted that whilst home countries might fly their flag and wear their colours, individuals competing that are resident in the, “British Isles” will be representing, “Team GB” since it is the UK and other countries of the Commonwealth that are member states.

Scotland is not a state and Westminster simply decided to delegate the games to be held in Glasgow, a city of the UK. He went on to express his confidence, (and that of the Government) in the superpower that is Team GB will be a success in Glasgow and in the future, the world. “http://home.bt.com/news/oddnews/commonwealth-team-gb-gaffe-by-hague-11363912308295” So there it is, Scotland does not exist.

Seems to me we need to vote, “Yes” so that we will be able to join the Commonweath on an equal footing with 50+ other states, such as Nauru, population approximately 15,000.

Commonwealth Games Political Nonsense

Political correctness gone mad. There are dangerous precedences being set by the Bitter Together campaign, (games organisers take their instructions from the Labour controlled Glasgow City Council). In seeking to, (in public at least) ensure the games would be free of political influences the organisers are covertly achieving the reverse.

Commonwealth games spectators attending venues in, Glasgow Green revealed they were ordered to remove, “Yes” button badges at the gates by security guards who told them they, “represent a protest”.

I have sympathy for Pacific Quay based BBC Scotland presenters who must be seething at being, (put out to pasture) with coverage of the Commonwealth Games, in Glasgow being remitted to English presenters. An event of the magnitude of the games would be one of the highlights of a scottish presenters career but where were they? There was only one, Hazel Irvine and she was used sparingly as an anchor.

Heard a good one on a BBC TV morning segment this morning, apparently there are 2 teams now: Team England; and the home nations. To paraphrase “Looks like Team England are in the running for a a couple of gold medals and the home nations should pick uup some other medals”

Woman removed by police from Tollcross swimming venue

Word going round is that the woman was, “spotted” by the BBC camera’s. The police were reminded of the Games rules and asked to remove the lady from the venue so that the BBC would be able to, “pan” the crowd freely.

Police Scotland explained their heavy-handed approach by saying “flags from non-competing nations or flags affiliated with to other organisations or causes, political or otherwise, are restricted.”
