This is the email I sent to the Scottish government. By sending no reply they have proven that SEPA's lie about paint particles have been provably found represents the very highest standard of honesty to which they aspire. It is, as proven previously, a lie.
Recently Mr Byron Tilly of SEPA stated on public radio, that particles containing an excess amount of radioactivity at Dalgety Beach had been specifically scientifically tested & proven to be paint particles.
A further reading of their report on the subject says the opposite - that they acted merely on the "belief" that they were paint particles. Their entire thesis that there is a dangerous amount of manmade radioactivity, on which it seems likely they have spent millions, depends on the particles being paint (though even then there would be no actual evidence they were dangerous). Without absolute proof on that point they would be left with the fact that the paint deposited there contained much less radium than occurred naturally & that since it was water soluble & the Scottish coast has experienced a significant amount of water over the last 60 years, it would be impossible for there to be any significant radioactivity beyond the background. SEPA have also specifically refused to answer an FoI request for figures of background radiation asserting they have no duty to obey this law.
While I would not wish to suggest that SEPA's claim to have scientifically proven these particles to be paint represents other than the absolute pinnacle of honesty to which they aspire (their decision to maintain it proves it) nor can I accept, in light of what their own report says, that it is in any way true.
That being the case if the Scottish government & civil service aspire, in any way, to any higher standard of truth it will obviously be necessary for the government & service to publicly dissociate themselves from that arm of government. I hope for that rather than the alternative of saying that that is also the very highest standard of honesty to which the entire body aspires.

I don't think I am overstating the case when I say that deliberate lying by a government department, whose regulatory functions cost Scotland billions each year, particularly where it is part of a series of similar claims should be a matter of major concern.
The MSM, who are either an essential element of our free society bringing those in power to public account or a corrupt bunch of fascists who spend their time rewriting government or government approved press releases have decided to censor any mention of this.
It is now nearly a month since my FoI enquiry for the evidence to support the paint story & they are still standing by their statement that they have no duty to answer it.
That's being too generous. The media doesn't rewrite government press releases, it badgers the gov into writing this bull in the first place. I had to delete part of your post for clarity, sorry.
Have you seen this?
I have another point to make about the dems and socialism, but that would require a blogpost of my own.
Its premise is essentially that the anti-racist movement is a form of social climbing with little or nothing to do with interacting with ordinary coloured people.
This exposes the liberal hierarchy. The evil and the media are at the top, the SWPL men are in the middle, and the coloreds are at the bottom. Union members serve the dual purpose of being working class useful idiots and making large scale industrial production too expensive here in the US. General Motors is a good example. GM's plants are old and located in urban areas that have large numbers of minorities and therefore its' hourly workforce is one-third Black. If you combine unionism, Blacks and liberalism you get leftist state goverments like Michigan and the downfall of a prominent corporation. When the Japs buld plants in the US their workforce is non-union and 1% Black.
Most "leftist" parties today are an attempt to create a coalition of 51% of voters by offering to satisfy the grievances of their particular subgroup. This obviously involves nursing & enhancing such grievances since if they actually succeeded in satisfying them (as with oriental immigrants here or there or indeed black carribean or indeed Kenyan immigrants to the US) the voting group would move on.
This is immensely damaging to both society as a whole & the minorities stuck in dependency.
