SCOTLAND: ‘ Time for Scottish People to Finish What Was Started Two Centuries Ago ‘

#AceNewsServices – SCOTLAND (Edinburgh) September 16 – On Calton Hill, overlooking Edinburgh, stands Scotland’s National Monument.

' Time to finished what was Started Two Centuries Ago '

‘ Time to finished what was Started Two Centuries Ago ‘

A colonnade of classical stone pillars modelled on the Parthenon in Athens, it’s grand, inspiring – and unfinished, ever since the money to build it ran out two centuries ago.

The National Monument of Scotland, on Calton Hill in Edinburgh, is Scotland’s national memorial to the Scottish soldiers and sailors who died fighting in the Napoleonic Wars.It was intended, according to the inscription, to be “A Memorial of the Past and Incentive to the Future Heroism of the Men of Scotland”.

The monument dominates the top of Calton Hill, just to the east of Princes Street. It was designed during 1823-6 by Charles Robert Cockerelland William Henry Playfair and is modelled upon the Parthenon in Athens.

Construction started in 1826 and, due to the lack of funds, was left unfinished in 1829. This circumstance gave rise to various nicknames such as “Scotland’s Disgrace”, “Edinburgh’s Disgrace”, “the Pride and Poverty of Scotland” and “Edinburgh’s Folly”.

It’s a fitting image for the country as seen by independence campaigners, who hope voters will finish Scotland’s incomplete journey to statehood by backing separation from Britain in a referendum on Thursday.

Scotland records UK’s hottest day of 2014 as temperatures top 26C

Summer sun: Warm weather was enjoyed across central Scotland on Wednesday.

Scotland has recorded the hottest UK temperature of the year, with Perthshire soaring to 26.5C on Wednesday.

The record-equalling high was set at Strathallan, near the village of Forgandenny. STV (Scottish Television) weather presenter Sean Batty, who said the warm temperatures of the past few days have made parts of Scotland just as hot as many Mediterranean holiday destinations, warned Scots to take care. “The UV levels are at their highest point now with just a few days to go till the summer solstice,” he said. “Towards the end of the week the temperatures will come down to mid teen values for most of the country and there will also be a higher risk of some showery rain.” The temperature set at Strathallan equals that recorded in Writtle in Essex on Monday. My city hot 27 yesterday and it was BAKING outside. Here in Scotland we make the most of this weather, it could last a day, a week, an hour 😀 And of course nobody can deny eye candy right?

More reasons why Scotland can’t test the water with UKIP

I have done a blog already on the real dangers of a Scotland being run by UKIP. This is a real and present danger to Scotland. The above and below images prove that if UKIP do win an Election with Scotland part of the Union that they would dissolve our Parliament as promised and treat us like Thatcher did. Our two options are David Cameron and the Tories or Nigel and UKIP! We as a nation must vote yes on September 18th otherwise we run the risk of being a funny comedy for UKIP

We can’t chance this people, vote with your mind, vote with logic, vote with the truth not lies from #NAW camps

Scotland has spoken already

I already said I think the dangers of UKIP will help an #AYE vote and I think I have show here again, this can only help us on September 18th, here is the blog I done and an Image below from Twitter saying exactly what UKIP think of Scotland. We can’t go near this, vote for our future, vote with your head not your heart
My last UKIP Blog

Dangerous UK UKIP Surge might make an Independent Scotland a reality

Been debating and thinking about the surge of UKIP votes. Now UKIP have said they WILL dissolve the Scottish and Welsh Parliaments. I think this surge of UKIP wins has made an Independent Scotland a reality. If the polls are right and UKIP would have caused a hung parliament had this been a general election in the UK I know for SURE no Scottish person would want this. So is there a way of thinking that UKIP could have just made the undecided, decide on yes?

This is the last time this right wing nut job was in my city Edinburgh

Now I am a #AYE campaigner and write for #AYE but we don’t do it with hate. The venom from the people in my city to this man is there for all to see and I believe my whole country will say no to Nigel. I think Nigel has JUST made a sure thing of the yes vote. We MUST as Scottish people look and research UKIP and it’s polices. If we do this and realise they are gaining support in England, we run the risk of this idiot running Scotland! This can’t happen, THIS CAN’T HAPPEN!


This was him in a pub in Edinburgh, Scotland

Salmond even warned us, but he played a BLINDER over UKIP and it’s racist, homophobic scum

#UK: `Fight for an `Independent Scotland' will come at a price and that price as always is `Business First '

#AceUKNews says according to the report in the Telegraph the well known insurance company `Standard Life’ is making provisions to quit Edinburgh should Scotland become independent and decamp to London England.

The insurance, savings and pensions giant confirms it is drawing up contingency plans to move operations from its Edinburgh headquarters if there is a Yes vote in September, while RBS also warns independence would damage its business.

Although the firm insisted in its new annual report it was not taking a stance on Scottish independence, it said the planning was necessary to protect customers and shareholders.

It is understood this could involve moving its headquarters from Edinburgh to London.

In a double blow to the Nationalists, RBS used its full-year results to warn that uncertainty over the referendum is already damaging its business and a vote for separation would be “likely to significantly impact the Group’s credit ratings”.

Among the “material issues” Standard Life said was behind its decision were uncertainty over a separate Scotland’s currency, membership of the EU, monetary system, arrangements for financial services regulation and approach to individual taxation.

Mikaeel Kular: ” Mother Rosdeep Charged Charged with Son’s Murder”

#AceGuestNews says Mikaeel Kular: Mother Rosdeep charged with son’s murder

Rosdeep Kular murdered her own son. charged with son’s murder

JUST TRAGIC.. Reason I blog this again is I was told to remove “MURDER” from the last title.

The mother of three-year-old Mikaeel Kular has appeared in court charged with his murder.

Rosdeep Kular, 33, appeared in private at Edinburgh Sheriff Court, charged under her married name of Adekoya.

She is also accused of attempting to defeat the ends of justice. She made no plea or declaration and was remanded in custody.

Mikaeel was reported missing from his home in Edinburgh last Thursday, prompting a major search.

His body was found 20 miles away in Kirkcaldy, Fife, late on Friday.

The private hearing at Edinburgh Sheriff Court lasted only a few minutes and no media or members of the public were present.

There was a heavy police presence as a van left Edinburgh Sheriff Court after Rosdeep Kular’s appearance

The case was continued for further examination, with another court appearance expected on 28 January.

Forensic officers have continued their investigations at the site where Mikaeel’s body was discovered.

His body was removed from woodland behind a property in the town’s Dunvegan Avenue at the weekend. A house in the street was searched, along with an area of woodland to the rear and side of the property.

Ms Kular and her five children had previously lived at the address. A neighbour told the BBC that Mikaeel and his twin sister were born while the family was living there.

Mikaeel was reported missing from his home in Ferry Gait Crescent, Edinburgh, at about 07:15 on Thursday morning.

More than 200 volunteers from the community joined the emergency services in a huge search operation for the young boy.

Hundreds of people gathered at Muirhouse St Andrew’s Church in Edinburgh on Saturday evening for a service in Mikaeel’s memory.

Many also left flowers and soft toys and lit candles outside his home in Edinburgh.

#AceGuestPost: “A Musical Tribute to Mikaeel Kular-In God’s Hands Now”

#AceNewsServices says a musical tribute to Mikaeel Kular – In God’s hands now

Thank you, nearly 2,000 shares of this video on Facebook

When a child of 3-year-old goes missing we all fear the worst, all over the world. This doesn’t happen in Scotland, we don’t have to deal with this. Today we do. But we do together and as one. Same as any community would. I couldn’t go search but my son did. All I could do was sit and type. Now we know the Mother killed her own, what should have been her precious child “Praying4TheDay” Anger comes and we ask God to take Mikaeel and to make sure he is ok. We ask why but we will ever know why Rosdeep Kular did what she did. She will go to Cornton Vale women’s prison till the trial.

In the meantime our thought turn to Mikaeel. His pain is over, he won’t be in pain again, he is in a better place. But I thought all day about doing something but couldn’t as I couldn’t walk. I was one of a few people who put a reward out for  information, and I would again. We wanted a headline like “Kid found in Uncles house alive” We never.

For Mikaeel
