Intelligence and Security Committee report on Russian interference into the 2014 Scottish independence referendum and EU referendum 2016
Intelligence and Security Committee report on Russian interference into the 2014 Scottish independence referendum and EU referendum 2016

An overdue report found Russia tried to interfere in UK elections including the result of the Scottish Independence Vote 2014 and EU Referendum 2016

The report was heavily critical about several UK governments lack of response to Russian threat but was unclear about how much Russia’s attempts did actually influence the result. The report was clear why Russia had consistently tried to influence politics in the UK and USA. Russia it is alleged want to create chaos in the west.

It is therefore totally logical to then ask what outcomes in 2014 and 2016 would create most chaos in west. It is not a political viewpoint or biased to be able to say with certainty that the outcomes bringing most chaos would be for Scotland to leave UK and for UK to leave the European Union. This is backed up by the reaction of the financial markets which recovered post 2014 when Scotland voted to stay in UK and the value of the pound falling when the UK voted to leave the EU.

There are also reports in UK media that even now Russia is working to goad the Scots into pushing for another referendum on leaving on independence. People who delight in the UKs governments uncomfortable position following this serious report that if the Russians were in any way successful in 2014 then without their involvement the gap between Yes and No would have been even wider. Scotland without Russia’s involvement would have been even further away from securing independence!

22nd April 2020 Scotland Deaths From Coronavirus Rise By 77 To 1062

19th April 2020 Scotland Deaths From Coronavirus Now Total 903

The new temporary coronavirus hospital named NHS Louisa Jordan has been completed at the Scottish Events Campus SEC in Glasgow. It will open for Covid19 patients tomorrow and have the capacity for 1036 patients.

8th April 2020 Scotland Deaths From Coronavirus now total 354

The National Records Of Scotland show deaths from coronavirus as 354. These records include deaths outside of hospital where Covid19 is suspected cause. Places outside of hospital includes but not limited to own home retirement homes and care homes more generally.

In Scotland a recent period under analysis found that 354 deaths in Scotland recorded Covid19 as cause of death. Over the same period the Scottish government released official deaths in hospitals as 220. The difference is 134 deaths. 134 deaths is more than 50 percent higher than official figures released by Scottish government.


The National Records of Scotland give a more accurate indication of the deaths from the coronavirus in UK. According to the Chief Medical Officer for England speaking at the UK government daily briefing yesterday most if not all national reports of deaths from coronavirus from around the world do not include deaths from virus occurring outside of hospitals. This means that worldwide the numbers of deaths are significantly higher. Perhaps more than 50 percent higher.

5th April 2020 Scotland Chief Medical Officer CMO Warned By Police Scotland For Travelling To Her Second Home Twice Against Scotland Rules On Staying At Home

Many community leaders and Scottish politicians call on Scotland CMO to be sacked or to resign.

It has been accepted by CMO that she made a mistake but she will remain in post. She has not been fined but has been warned about her actions by police in Scotland.

The CMO appeared on Scottish adverts this morning instructing the people of Scotland to remain in their homes. Their first homes.

  • Scotland Deaths From Cornavirus Rise By 2 To 220
  • Nearly 200 people are in intensive care in Scotland with virus
  • Scotland First Minister Nicola Sturgeon says she cannot do her job if she did not have the advice of CMO. Hopefully the CMO does not contract coronavirus then. Is there no Deputy CMO like in England? If not is there no one who could step into CMO shoes.

4th April 2020 Scotland Deaths From Coronavirus Rise 46 To 218

19th March 2020 Number Of Deaths From Coronavirus In Scotland Doubles To 6

The number of cases of people officially confirmed as having coronavirus is irrelevant. Scotland like the rest of the UK does not have the capacity to test everyone. There is not even enough to test all NHS workers self isolating cause they think they may have virus.

The UK including Scotland is ramping up testing capability. However it has officially been acknowledged that the prevalence of the virus in the community is tens of thousands more than the official figure. Using official figures is pointless and misleading. Firstly it can be perceived that it is not as bad as it really is. Secondly it could also look worse than it is as the death rate to official detected cases rises but rises mainly due to the lack of testing.

What is an accurate guide is the number of deaths. The number of deaths in Scotland due to coronavirus is expected to double continuously every few days for weeks. If people in Scotland do not socially isolate the number of deaths will be higher than if people do socially isolate. Similarly the length of the business interruption to businesses in Scotland from coronavirus pandemic will be longer is people do not socially isolate for the next few months.
