News, Boos and Royal Visits

'Divisive', surely? — Mark Irvine (@Mark1957) October 3, 2022 ITV News surely mixed up the words 'decisive' and 'divisive' in its coverage of the royal visit to the new City of Dunfermline! In any event, I don't approve of booing people in public, not even politicians, because it just encourages ugly, 'tit for tat' behaviour. 

Hero Worship and Po-Faced Nationalists

Were you watching HIGNFY @frankieboyle , @kevinBridges ? It takes an Englishman to hold Sturgeon and Scexit Ref 2 to account. Something the pair of you never have done or no doubt will do in the future pic.twitter.com/zWxvzcKu6D — Robert Hoskins (@hoski67) October 1, 2022 HIGNFY pokes fun at politicians of every stripe and party, but po-faced SNP supporters always complain bitterly when a joke is made at Nicola Sturgeon's expense.   Now that is funny! Tasteless? No I call it racist and it is that kind of English exceptionalism which makes me want independence more. VIEWERS of the BBC’s long-running panel show Have I Got News For You have raised objections to a “tasteless crack” at Nicola Sturgeon. https://t.co/KFsGy2EKho — Lorna Murray🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇪🇺 (@LornaRetiree) October 1, 2022  

Ye Cannae Change Your Sex - Or The Laws Of Physics

I'm sure if Lieutenant Commander (Scotty) Scott was still with us he would agree wholeheartedly with Professor Robert Winston that "you cannot change your sex." Because as every Star Trek fans knows: Ye cannae change the laws of physics, laws of physics, laws of physics; Ye cannae change the laws of physics, laws of physics, Jim. Star Trekkin' Star Trekkin' across the universe, On the Starship Enterprise under Captain Kirk. Star Trekkin' across the universe, Boldly going forward 'cause we can't find reverse. Lt. Uhura, report. There's Klingons on the starboard bow, starboard bow, starboard bow; there's Klingons on the starboard bow, starboard bow, Jim. Analysis, Mr. Spock. It's life, Jim, but not as we know it, not as we know it, not as we know it; it's life, Jim, but not as we know it, not as we know it, Captain. There's Klingons on the starboard bow, starboard bow, starboard bow; there's Klingons on the starboard bow, starboar

"You Cannot Change Your Sex"

Professor Robert Winston explains that people cannot change their sex - because your male or female sex is embedded in every cell in the human body. Isn't it odd Scottish Ministers put such store in 'following the science' during the battle with Covid - yet SNP/Green politicians are arguing that we should reject science when it comes to trans issues.

You Can't Turn Back Time - Or Change Your Sex

Here's a great song from Cher, but as everybody knows you can't really turn back time. Just as it's impossible for people to change their age - and for men to self-declare they are women or girls! 

Wow - A Lifelong Gay Rights Activist Speaks Out!

What a powerful, dignified and telling statement from Fred Sargeant, a veteran of the gay rights movement who argues that trans activists have turned 'Pride' into a misogynistic, homophobic, exclusionary event. Well said, sir! A very powerful, dignified and telling statement from Fred Sargeant pic.twitter.com/ok4dKxXzMd — Mark Irvine (@Mark1957) October 3, 2022
