    The link below is to an item taken from the BBC's website this morning. In it Ex-MPs discuss the impact that abuse (on-line and off-line) has had on their mental health.

    An interesting concept. But I suspect that Mr Salmond will have bigger things than 'E Org to occupy him this week, what with his hearing over 2 charges of attempted rape, 9 charges of sexual assault and 2 charges of indecent assault.

    Wow - What a list of charges.

    Concerns me deeply that until these allegations are disproven (and that sounds a very tall order), this man is still on the loose. No wonder Scotland should be afraid, very afraid. But I guess the courts are too busy trying to block democracy.

    The Tories have not held a majority of Scottish seats since 1955. Despite that we have endured decades of rule by Tory governments we neither wanted nor elected.
    But, it looks like we are going to be lumbered with them once more regardless of how we in Scotland vote. If they do win a majority in the UK then we will face a hard Brexit (against the wishes of the Scottish electorate) and a right wing government intent upon limiting, if not eradicating, the powers of the Scottish Parliament. Holyrood is the only buffer we have against the excesses of Tory governments and it is vital we send a clear message that Scotland will not be treated like a vassal state. We cannot allow a future Tory government to limit/dissolve the Scottish parliament, particularly after all the promises made after Indyref I about great rafts of new powers coming our way.

    So with all of that in mind, it is interesting to note the value of donations made to political parties in the last couple of weeks. The following article may be found on the BBC's website at:-
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/election-2019-50508009

    One graphic from the article stands out (click to enlarge the image). This is why the Tories are going to win. This is why the Tories can play fast and loose with the truth during election campaigns. They have the money and the power to "block democracy".

    Be afraid Scotland, be very afraid, for the future under a Johnson government doesn't bear thinking about.

    This is what stands out the most to me...

    "Another Tory donor, Lubov Chernukhin, the wife of a former minister for Russian President Vladimir Putin, gave £200,000 in the same period."
    “We're trapped in the belly of this horrible machine....
    And the machine is bleeding to death."
