The letter I said I was sending yesterday has been published in part today by the Scotsman which is more than I expected considering the reasoning that went into saying our MSPs compare, badly, against the most destructive, ignorant, witch doctor ridden & uncivilised savages in history.
With the exception of the leading letter which is from the WWF fakecharity, other letters are also opposed to this Ludditry. The bits published are in bold & you can see from the rest how contemptible I consider the behaviour of Holyrood's MSPs has been:
In 1856 a young African woman Nongqawuse said that the ancestors had ordered that all cattle be killed, that all stored grain should be destroyed, that no grain should be planted and that everyone should purge themselves of all charms and witchcraft. If this were done then the world would be saved, the Xhosa people fed & all would be well.
Not all believed, not even all their leaders & indeed threats & violence were used against sceptics & deniers. The mob hysteria was unabated even when the first predicted dates for this transformation failed to happen. Finally it was predicted that the Sun would rise coloured red on 16th Feb 1857 & unlimited cattle be provided by the ancestors.
Obviously the Sun rose the normal colour, the Xhosa were not fed & 10s of thousands of them starved to death.
Compare & contrast this with the Scottish Parliament which has unanimously, unlike the Xhosa leaders, adopted a law that we should destroy most of our economy. The correlation between energy consumption & wealth is one of the clearest in all economics. As part of what has correctly been called "The War Against Fire" they wish us to destroy 42% of Scotland's fire producing facilities over the next 11 years & 80% by 2050. In a display of added insanity they want to close down the only substantial other source of power - our nuclear generators. This will ultimately reduce us to a level of energy usage & therefore standard of living unknown since Victorian times. We will sink into a 3rd world society as the BRICK (Brazil, Russia, India, China, Korea) become the dominant 21stC economies.
Nor do the Holyrood MSP's have the excuse of ignorance the Xhosa tribal leaders had. They lived in a world where people genuinely believed in the magic powers of the ancestors whereas we know that the scientific method works & that a science is only as good as the experimental predictions it makes. While Nongqawuse's predictions had less than a year to fail "catastrophic global warming" has had 30 years now & we know global temperature is not now demonstrably higher than 1979. Like all other massive catastrophe predictions made by our self appointed "environmentalist" shamans (global ice age, acid rain, pollution caused cancers bringing life expectancy down to 42 by 20 years ago, peak oil by 1993, increasing millions of deaths by starvation annually starting 30 years ago, radiation deaths etc. etc.) global warming, even when rebranded as "climate change" is not only a "theory" but one disproven by massive evidence.
Every single MSP knows this. Every single journalist pushing this hysteria has seen the facts. They are doing this merely because it increases their power & sells newspapers. Not a single one of what is now de facto a single party in Holyrood can ever again claim to be in any slightest way motivated by a duty to help constituents. Not a single one of these parasites can claim to be honest.
Since nearly 3,000 Scots already unnecessarily die, annually, from fuel poverty we may expect the ultimate death toll in Scotland from the War Against Fire to greatly exceed the 1856 hysteria.

One thing I may have understated - though the relationship between power usage & national wealth is clear it is fairly variable & Britain already produces less power for our GNP than any sizable developed country.
I previously quoted an SF writer on how nations decivilise & it seems appropriate. Scotland's parliament has unanimously voted for barbarism.
But then I could be wrong. The Old Testament documents pagan tribes sacrificing their children in fires, and rightfully condemns such evil, calling for the death of anyone who attempts it in Israel.
Maybe it is a death cult.
I don't know, whatever it is, it is proof of the existence of evil.
2. Have you considered a restoration of the Scottish monarchy? Scotland could withdraw from the UK and EU and establish a constitutional monarchy complete with a written constitution and parliament.
3. I think you are giving the average mediamoron too much credit when you say that they know that global warming is false. Most only "know" what is fashionable to believe. I doubt most actually put forth the effort to investigate the crap they push.
2 - If Scotland became independent we would probably retain the same crown - as Canada, Australia & New Zealand still do. I am coming round to cottish independence on the grounds that our leaders might get away with less insanity if they were held responsible for it.
3 - I think we are disagreeing only over the meaning of "know", in that i am holding people responsible for knowing what they are aware of even when the fool themselves. uman beings have a great capacity to believe what suits them, for example apparently everybody in Germany claimed not to know what they were doing to the Jews despite their obvious disappearance. I think they knew & suppressed it. Equally all politicians know that after 30 years of alleged catastrophic warming it isn't sighnificantly hotter.
Let me give you an American example. For many years, and to this day, the US media constantly wailed about how the number of Blacks in prison kept going up even though crime was going down. This increase in Black imprisonment was considered de facto evidence of White discrimination against Blacks. Never once was it mentioned in the press that crime might be down because large numbers of Blacks were behind bars during their peak carjacking years. And it seems that so many people have been programmed with the first thought that they simply don't think it might be the other way around.
Quite a few reporters tap into the great currents of thought sweeping our society instead of thinking at all.
Either way, the solution is to abolish the BBC.
The best thing Scotland could do is use the spectrum currently assigned to the TV and radio networks and use it to set up a national hi-speed internet for the population. Then there would be no central broadcasting, and any man who wanted to could set up a website to promote his political opinions.
There are probably companies other than Alvarion, but you get my point.
