Should Scotland look to build more links with Scandinavia?

Posted by seumasach on December 29, 2011

This should be a bit of a dampener to recent speculation that Scotland was heading towards the Eurozone. Here we have a high-level policy statement from the SNP which is obviously grounded on the assumption of being outside Europe. The idea of a military alliance with Scandinavian countries outside or on the periphery of Europe looks, in particular,  to be of Atlanticist inspiration. Of course, reasoned debate on Europe is hardly possible in the face of a sustained barrage of black propaganda being directed against it, but the SNP is doing nothing to counter it. Only with the fall of the pound on the international markets can we expect a reasonable debate on the issue to resume.

What do you think of when you hear the word Scandinavian? Is it liberalism? Or social democracy? Perhaps high standards of living? Or high tax rates? Maybe saunas and snow?

Whatever it is, could we become Scandinavians – and, if we could, would we want to?

Scotland the Deaf!

There is an issue that has not fully come to the surface in Scotland: the health hazards of wind farms.
Here is wiki report that does not mention health.

There is much in the report and everything seems, all fine and well.
There is this sentence “The siting of turbines is sometimes an issue, but surveys have shown high levels of community acceptance for wind power in Scotland.”

This may come as a shock but there are other reports that are alarming.


I quote.

Residents suffer from ringing in the ears, headaches, sleeplessness, dangerously elevated blood pressure (requiring medication), heart palpitations, itching in the ears, eye watering, earaches, and pressure on the chest causing them to fight to breathe

And I am writing this just 2 days after the opening of Scotland’s biggest wind power farm

Then we have expert PR men or doctors in denial, or perhaps we can blame the victims for not knowing what is the matter.

“Wind energy advocates say studies show no proof that turbines cause health problems and that residents who live near wind farms have few complaints about them. ”

Everything is well!

Scottish Bee Industry at risk through dual threat

The Press and Journal
MP demands urgent action to protect bees
Published: 01/07/2008

One wonders how long they can keep up the official story that CCD is unexplained.

” Dr. rer. nat. Ulrich Warnke, a biological scientist at Saarland University, can demonstrate
this on a firm basis in his most recent publication Bees, Birds and People, The

Destruction of Nature as a result of ‘Electrosmog’. His findings are the result of his own

research over a decade, a superior overview of the state of international research,

however, above all the realisation of verifiable mechanisms which have a disorientating
and damaging effect on the bees. ” Source

The UK Government has been called on to do more to combat the risks facing Scottish bees. Danny Alexander, MP for Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey, yesterday tabled an early day motion calling for action.
