BECAUSE WINNIE EWING, SNP “FOREIGN POLICY SPOKESMAN” WISHED TO BE PRESENT, MEETING WAS DELAYED UNTIL NOVEMBER 24. 2. HIGHLIGHTS OF DISCUSSION INCLUDED:
A) SENSITIVE SNP NERVE WAS TOUCHED BY “RECONCILIA- TION OF ITS DOMESTIC VIEW OF ITSELF WITH THE INTERNAT- IONAL PROBLEM,” WHICH TYPFIES SNP APPROACH TO POLITICS. IT WAS OBVIOUS THAT SCOTTISH NATIONALISTS, LIKE NORWEG- IANS WHOM THEY ADMIRE, HAVE LITTLE INTEREST IN COMMON WEAL, I.E. DEVELOPMENT OF NORTH SEA OIL FOR WESTERN EUROPE OR EVEN BRITAIN, LET ALONE SURVIVAL OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION/ECONOMY. SCOTS, AS NORWEGIANS, PREFER TO HOARD ANNAND CONSERVE EVEN IF EUROPE STARVES OR GOES BROKE.

MI5 file links former SNP leader to Nazi plan 7th Nov 2005
THE former SNP leader Arthur Donaldson plotted to set up a puppet Nazi government in Scotland, according to a recently released wartime spy report.
An MI5 file on Mr Donaldson, who led the SNP from 1961 to 1969, claims that he conspired to set up a Vichy-style regime with himself as a “Scottish Quisling” in the wake of Hitler’s widely-anticipated invasion.
In 1941, Mr Donaldson revealed to a close confidant – who was also a British agent – that a network of Nazi sympathisers were planning to undermine the war effort.
His United Scotland Movement was said to be contemplating “spreading confusion by false reports and minor acts of sabotage, and is in fact now endeavouring to start spreading confusion by false reports and minor acts of sabotage, and is in fact now endeavouring to start a whispering campaign to spread rumours, particularly of shipping losses”.
Mr Donaldson told the agent that he believed the German invasion would be a success. “The government would leave the country and England’s position would be absolutely hopeless, as poverty and famine would be their only reward for declaring war on Germany. Scotland, on the other hand, has great possibilities,”
Mr Donaldson is recorded as saying. “The movement in Scotland must then be able to show the German government that it is organised and has a clear-cut policy, that it is not with England in the war. The German government will give them every possible assistance in their early struggle, and when fire and confusion is at its height in England the movement can start in ”
Senior MI5 officer Lieutenant Colonel Dick Brooman-White believed that Mr Donaldson was planning to follow the lead of Vidkun Quisling, who led a puppet government in Norway. In 1941 Mr Donaldson was among a number of Nationalist figures to be arrested under suspicion of
Mr Donaldson is recorded as saying. “The movement in Scotland must then be able to show the German government that it is organised and has a clear-cut policy, that it is not with England in the war. The German government will give them every possible assistance in their early struggle, and when fire and confusion is at its height in England the movement can start in earnest.”
AFTER almost a decade in power at Holyrood, the SNP is the dominant force in Scottish politics and has growing influence at both Westminster and on the wider international stage.

For the majority of the new supporters who have flocked to the party in recent years, the Nationalists represent a shining beacon of progressive, forward-thinking democracy.However, these new converts to the cause would no doubt be shocked by the SNP’s historic links to Adolf Hitler, Fascism and the Nazis both before and during Second World War.
Featuring pen portraits by leading academics and writers of all the people who have stood at the helm of the SNP during its tumultous 88-year history, this heavyweight tome has been described as “remarkable”, “compelling” and “long overdue”.
Former Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill even enthused: “A fascinating backdrop to the interesting political times Scotland now faces and the characters that lived the dream that has never died.”One of these “characters” is founder member Andrew Dewar Gibb, who became the second chairman of the party in 1934 and frequently quoted Hitler in his public speeches.
This chapter is written by the historian Dr Catriona Macdonald, of Glasgow University, who states: “Gibb was clearly sympathetic to Nazism as a bulwark against communism (or at least as the lesser of two evils), and shared its anti-Semitic anxieties, even if he did not support its approach to dealing with them.”
Then we have the much more recent tweets from the delightful Pete Wishart
SNP MP evokes Nazi persecution poem in attack on UK’s Electorate’a decision to Brexit EU October 4 2016,
An SNP MP has been denounced for evoking a poem about Nazi persecution in his criticism of Tory Brexit plans. Pete Wishart, who represents Perth and Perthshire North, appeared to make comparisons between Nazi Germany and Brexit Britain in a tweet.
Mr Wishart tweeted on Tuesday: “First they came for the berry farm workers. Then they came for the Drs. Next they came for the ….. #toryBrexit #yourUK”.
Scottish Conservative deputy leader Jackson Carlaw criticised Mr Wishart for his tweet. “The only people coming for Pete Wishart will be the men in white coats, He’s clearly living on a planet of his own – and a very nasty one at that.” However, there was no apology forthcoming from the SNP.
