AYE RIGHT RADIO National Assembly Day. Video 263 Audio 20 S3

National Assembly Day 

  • We begin with three BBC shows;…
  • The Andrew Marr show featured UK Health Minister Hancock and Scotland’s FM Sturgeon with Glenn Campbell opining…Then the Politics Scotland show anchored by Andrew Kerr which featured DFM John Swinney and had Glenn Campbell – again…Finally The Big Question presented by Nicky Campbell worried about social media…
  • We then review Iain MacWhirter’s piece in the Herald exposing corruption at the Crown Office (prosecution service) led by Lord Advocate James Wolfe which Iain links to the Salmond V Sturgeon scandal…which we then discuss in depth…
  • Also mentioned are;…Anas Sarwar,  Rape Crisis Scotland,  NHS health boards,  Gordon Dangerfield and SKY’s James Mathews disappearing reports,  Peter A Bell,  the Real McKay seafood and the Red Hand Commando.

Correction and apology. Lord Advocate James Wolffe apologised on behalf of Lord Advocate Frank Mulholland. “Having previously defended the case, the Lord Advocate has now admitted that the Crown, under his predecessor Frank Mulholland QC, acted unlawfully during a substantial part of the proceedings. Documents recovered by the pursuers’ advisers show senior Crown Office lawyers speaking about the “need to nail the Duff & Phelps people” – referring to the pursuers’ firm at the time of their appointment as administrators. The court heard that no minutes appeared to exist of meetings chaired by Mr Mulholland to discuss strategy in the case.”

Aye Right Radio videocast 250 podcast 7 S3. Mark Hirst is Innocent

Mark Hirst is Innocent  

  • It was a busy Friday press briefing.   In our review we cover the disturbing numbers in hospital and the high death rate.   We discover that it’s anti-virus anti-bodies that matter and not who makes the vaccination.   Teachers and police officers will not jump the vaccination queue.   The FM is in total command as per usual.  
  • We discuss another ill-informed piece in the New Statesman about Gordon Brown and DEVO, this time by Chris Deerin
  • Joanna Cherry reminds us of historical precedent as the SNP head to a National Assembly that will discuss “the tactics and strategy on the route from here to Independence Day”.  
  • Mark Hirst has been acquitted of the politically inspired charge in relation to the Alex Salmond affair.

 Electrodes On Their Nipples  

  • President Trump joins the gang very briefly as does James O’Brien of LBC who can’t find Dido Harding or Operation Moonshot.  What was that?  
  • The main show is a review of a long and exhausting Covid press briefing where we roast the hyena pack of hacks and congratulate the FM on her delivery.  
  • We toast articles by Marina Hyde on Johnson and in particular by Peter A Bell who has some manifesto advice for the new SNP President.

  Englishman Talking to a Scot

  • We focus on the Andrew Marr show followed by two articles in the Sunday Times by Alex Massie.  
  • In interview by Marr,  Northern Ireland FM Arlene Foster avoided the word ‘border’,  reminding us that it’s 100 years since the current United Kingdom union began and that the Brexit NI protocol can be ended by a Stormont vote in four years.  
  • Then in interview,  PM Johnson failed to affect Stewart’s blood pressure and revealed little for a Monday tabloid headline though Marr challenged him over what democratic tools were left for a pro Scottish independence voter if a fresh indyref was refused.  
  • Alex Massie returns to assist us in dissecting topical independence issues.
