Picture Postcard Scotland? International Identity!

This post has been influenced by three articles in the Scotsman this week but the outline has been in my thoughts prior to self perpetuating this scrolling. Sowing the seed, reaping the harvest and ringing Scotland's till but we seem to be plowing through never ending fields without a bounty-full harvest at the end and ask any farmer if you rape the land before it has recovered the crops will not be as plentiful in the future. There's no real sound of ChaChing via our cash registers, expect constant ChaChinging of Inland Revenues till which constantly never stops ringing with future tax burdens. Our combined cause and campaign should be for anything and everything Eco Environmentally Sustainable, plus symbolic of Scotland, the spirit, the culture, our heritage and immense history in a clean and pure way. Long before reading these articles as a constituent I listen to people, I see what they see and I sense what they sense. Our rugged mountainsides, scenic lochs and sweeping glens with nothing but the odd tree "This We Must Change Plant More Trees", Highland cow or occasional stag as far as the eye can see is not just the iconic image of wild Scotland that we have but its what brings tourists, professionals seeking well-being and harmony to our shores for a whole multitude of reasons, work, rest, play or pleasure? Name me a film symbolic of Scotland that was filmed here in totality? Fingers on your buzzers!

The first article by Jane Bradley Environment correspondent "Paradise lost - Scotland's vanishing views" on Tuesday 22nd of February 2011 with some shocking "Pacman Statistics" Pakkuman's been real busy munching all in sight and the second article by Scott Macnab Political correspondent "Who do we think we are? Well, it is going to cost £65m to find out" 'We Know who we are but do they?' again on Tuesday 22nd of February 2011. Reading both in tandem of each other probably made quite allot of other folk think, couldn't manage a piss up in a brewery, let alone manage a country!  Then it's officially confirmed and substantiated via the third article by By Andrew Whitaker "Not credible, not acceptable - Edinburgh's leaders are damned over clans debacle" today Thursday 24th February 2011. Dear Scotsman newspaper circulation might be down for a few days whilst I recover from their piss up. Last one in the pub and the first one out, when its their round.

In the midst of worst austerity measures since the great depression, correction ordinary lower and middle class folk have reverted to being prudent, cautious and conservative whilst conserving their income and building their savings, statistic prove this theory. Therefore buffering up the Banks balance sheet, not moving home as we're still paying for Gogarburn, perhaps extending or improving where they are rather than taking the risk in the face of such uncertainty and zero confidence. Quite sensible in light of the facts and the reality is a far better barometer than the hype or the fantasy that got us into this mess in the first place. We read in our papers and hear, plus see via the news that endless cutbacks on most if not all countless and vitally essential services are being reported on a daily basis but yet there is £65m available to conduct a population survey. With a decreasing population Politicians have you ever wondered why? and have you recently really really talked to an ageing constituent, I have its not complimentary Dear Mr SNP MSP. The biggest ever ARMY since Stirling of nearly 7,000 people has been drafted to conduct and process the Census forms but will it provide the significant Scottish victory that we so need and crave for, plus desire? For the first time, national identity will be among the areas to be investigated, with respondents being asked whether they feel Scottish or British - or both but no box for used!

Perhaps "It doesn't do exactly what it says on the tin" and "It isn't like the picture on the postcard" but heavens forbid if we even suggested that the bureaucrats and the bankers got it wrong and continue to get it wrong, socially, economically and environmentally irresponsibly, so so wrong. An Ex-Neighbours words from Aberdeen and I quote "We need to sparkle again, shine, glitter, we need our pride back let alone our National Identity" who does she hold responsible but as she said will there every be any real accountability? 

It would seem its not only the Irish that are migrating for a multitude of reasons their leaders are oblivious of, along with a very patriotic Scottish by my Mother a McEwan Cornish by my Father born in Cyprus who still thinks the sun shines here in Scotland but is clouded by bureaucracy in denial of failure, acceptance of this will go further than a £65m via Census forms and population survey.
Robert the Bruce: Lands, titles, men, power, nothing.
Robert's Father: Nothing?
Robert the Bruce: I have nothing. Men fight for me because if they do not, I throw them off my land and I starve their wives and their children. Those men who bled the ground red at Falkirk, they fought for William Wallace, and he fights for something that I never had. And I took it from him, when I betrayed him. I saw it in his face on the battlefield and it's tearing me apart.
Robert's Father: All men betray. All lose heart.
Robert the Bruce: I don't wanna lose heart. I wanna believe as he does. 

In hundreds of years has anything really changed?

Documentary "The Spirit of Business & The Values of Principles"

Aim to be Michael Moore of Scotland, not mythological, true to myself, and my beliefs for a very successful and progressive Scotland via unique innovation, ideas, concepts and visions, that will continue sustainable lasting and meaningful legacies for Scotland! Through macro and micro initiative and "Method of Operating" being ignored or traceable, organic locally sourced incentives being wasted. We will be exploring Banking, Finance irregularities, and catastrophic failures, plus continual self centred preservation monopolies. Through to humongous calamities by bureaucrats, politicians via continual errors in judgment, detrimental to our wealth and well-being. Plus business and planning processes and the inconsistencies via a multitude of planning and business applications that have no consistent logic or coherent pattern? Scholars and Academics, Historians, Physicists, Psychiatrists through to various Professionals from different specialist areas and fields and Business People, plus ordinary folk will be involved in the process and partake via interviews. Wishing to contribute towards making a meaningful difference, evoking, plus proving significant change for the better of us all.

Should Donald Trump have been given the go-ahead for his golf resort?

Thinking out of the box

Therefore I have formed a Co-operative/Consortium like motive operandi applying inherent value and intrinsic value towards it current pledgeholders, future shareholders and anticipated investors. Beyond the mere principle value of itself and Co-operative/Consortium Partners, who share the same values and principles towards executing, performing and delivering overwhelming and unconditional current pledgeholders value, future shareholders and anticipated investors value and returns, beyond mere monetary values and principles but more importantly Ecological and Environmental dividends and returns. Towards making a substantial and prolific difference, through evoking, plus provoking necessary change in attitude, behaviour, culture towards the ecology, environment and the built environment.

Extremely admirable the protest and statement Doctor David Kennedy made. I would concur that Donald Trump is by no means an exemplar or shinning idealogy for students to admire or follow.
