The Highlands in the eye of a storm

The Oldest Sage Witch has decided to suspend normal blogging until further notice in order to gradually, and in a witch’s haphazard way, construct a little long reference list under The Tartan The Hielan’ Coo.

If you are NOT concerned about LIBERTY or FREEDOM OF SPEECH in the UK, then please ignore this and go and read “The Beano.”

Otherwise, read on:

  1. WD – Stupendous round up of relevant reportage. Thank you.

    ‘Hasta la vitoria siempre!’

  2. PS – what clan is your banner tartan?

  3. Found your original comment. Askimet seemed to think it was spam for some reason.

    It’ll be a while before this list is completed I fear. Making links is not my strong point.

    Not sure how this is going to end. It’s a much bigger issue than one suspended junior doctor. Maybe the seniors are getting their act together in the background, but if they are they sure don’t show it.

    The tartan is one of the Mackay tartans which is particularly significant (The Oldest Sage Witch is “qualified” to wear this tartan, you see!!??)

  4. Nonetheless, it’s a very useful list.

    Yes, indeed, this is a big issue. You know, I’d go so far as to say that it goes to the heart of the malaise that has infected the NHS. As a lay person I am horrified by the accounts of silencing and intimidation and cover-up that are emerging all around us. It reads more like a Cosa Nostra than a pukkah, ethical 21st century public service.

    Tartan – lovely colours, very like one of my two. Nice touch to use it as a banner – Scots Power!

  5. “SORRY, TIED UP FOR A WHILE. WILL UPDATE LATE TONIGHT”

    Didn’t know you were into that sort of thing 🙂 🙂 🙂
