Perth City Centre Snow and Ice Clearing

With snow and ice still causing difficulties for access to shops and businesses in the centre of Perth Scotland, we will provide a pavement clearing service.

When the snow fell it was assumed PKC or Tayside contracts would blitz the town centre providing the unhindered access to businesses. Maybe due to enforced cutbacks this has not been fully possible. Also there may be other priorities such has getting access to isolated and cut off communities elsewhere.

With many years experience in the construction industry, including keeping sites open during winter in some of the most inhospitable areas of the UK, Northern Scotland or high up and remotes places in the English Peak District, we can provide the same service to businesses in Perth.

We can clear all the snow and ice from outside your premises, cut paths to your door through the ‘snow banks’ along the roads. Then provide a winter long maintenance service to allow your customers, staff and deliveries access to your premises.

The more businesses who take advantage of the service the easier it will be to keep the centre of Perth open as normal no matter what the rest of the winter weather may bring.

To keep your business in Perth open and trading normally whatever the weather please contact us on 07946 033503.

The New Night Life of Perth

Wednesday night saw a new bred of nightlife in Perth. First a smell of burning was traced to an underground  electrical juction box and cable, shorted out by the ingress of snow.

First the fire brigade turned up, closing the access to West Mill Street. Then the electrical contractors. Shortly followed by a large digger and trucks to start clearing snow from the roads and around the taxi ranks and bus stops.

Smoke from the smouldering cable drifted across the square and roads, backlit from the flashing lights of the contractors vehicles. With temperatures dropping rapidly work began to repair the cable. An entire block of Perth in darkness as the power was cut off.

Despite the conditions Scottish and Southern Energy and Scottish Hydro Electric got the power back on ahead of schedule, before midnight and people were sparred a cold dark night.

Birmingham Music Concert Trouble

Oh Birmingham had some safety problems at their Christmas light switch on concert. This was the standard for quality for medium sized music concerts.


Chronicle review 1989 Concert img001

During the planning of this concert we advised Greenpeace on how to take their Rainbow Warrior fundraising CD into a live event. The next year they took over as co-promotion of the Glastonbury festival. Scotland’s T in the Park being influenced by that. So the legacy of quality from this event still lives on.

For information on how music and associated events can be used as part of effective sustainable development etc, please contact us.

E. Coli and Childrens Zoos

Well in the UK we have a warning that children under 5 should not touch farm animals by Prof Hugh Pennington. Does this really make sense or is it just another example of ‘counter intuitive policy planning’ as Prof Jay Forrester would say.

Is the problem not that children are infected by E.Coli? But that children are so isolated from the real world that their immune system has not been stimulated to respond to outside  conditions.

Although not living on a farm I grew up in a farming village. I cannot remember the time not going out and in some way not getting some form of muck on me, as so all my friends.

Is part of the problem children from birth not being exposed to the real world, so when they touch reality they do not have the immune response to deal with it. Is the solution not as Prof Pennington says, but the opposite expose children to the real world, strengthening their immune response to it.

So hen they are exposed to it, it isn’t such a sudden shock. 

If this is the case surely the correct response should for children to have contact with reality which includes animals from as early as possible. Preparing and strengthening their immune system from birth.


Criminal Record Checks

“If you have nothing to hide you have nothing to worry about” or variations on the phrase is used by some people to describe their feeling over criminal records checks or ID cards.

Though well meaning, this is a naivety born out of a lack of experience. What many people don’t realise is that police officers are permitted to access the Police National Computer and enter false data about a member of the public, without telling the person concern. Police Officers are allowed to access the PNC and quite simply give someone a made up criminal history.

Here is a real set of incident reports. As in real police paperwork, the incident reports not being real though. Just made up, fiction, a fantasy.  The police access the PNC file false incident reports so later they can forge arrest and custody records. This allows them later to send police officers in to court and lie on oath. Give evidence of an arrest, that only ever existed in their imagination and the unlawful entries they make in the police computer system.

Look at the official police record first. Can you spot the falsifications?  It might help if you have a calculator or a pen and paper. 

Then read the chronological analysis for the result. Do you agree with it? The entire case is fictitious, just look at the numbers.

Assessment of the Police Log


This is an example from Crewe Police in Cheshire. It is part of a Trojan prosecution made up in it’s entirety by the police. A large scale project was being undertaken  to verify UK flood models and if they were correct implement the prevention strategy.

Certain individuals and organisations had an interest in ensuring the flood models were not verified to ensure the UK would suffer catastrophic flooding. Crewe police agreed to forge an entire designer prosecution package to shut the project down.

Police officers are permitted to enter the Police National Computer and make false entries if it allows the conviction of innocent members of the public who have not committed any offence, not been arrested for any offence or charged with any offence.

It is possible for members of the public to approach a police officer and have them give another person a false criminal history if they want to make them lose their job or close their business etc. Or in this case ensure predicted flooding was not prevented.

Celtic Lion Newsnight

A place for BBC Newsnight bloggers to come and put their thoughts they might want others to know, which they think might not fit with the BBC Newsnight Blog. Celtic Lion understands. Feel free to post. The first time you post it automatically comes to be moderated, after that just be respectful to others.

It must now be clear to any political observers that Gordon Brown is the puppet of the Corporate Nazi stock market parasites. Likewise Alistair Darling ( nee Panda ) who would appear to be committed to the Corporate Nazi ideology of expanding and sustaining a virtual welfare state for the stock market parasites. Tough on alleged Incapacity Benefit cheats but no action to curb the embezzlement of billions by the ” socially useless ” section of financial markets as recently identified by Lord Turner. Darling is attempting to portray that a cap on bonuses will be avoided through higher basic salaries. The obvious solution is to heavily tax all derivatives trades, but with Obama scared of assassination the Corporate Nazi’s have him as their puppet also, so no chance of a global deal.


Of course it will be no better under the Tories despite the Osborne rhetoric on tougher city regulation. Perhaps its convenient to dump the FSA now that its head is no longer ” ideologically pure “, of course Boris has to object to a cap on bonuses as they are mostly in the interest of his main political sponsors. Farage’s response is typical of a party funded by the likes of hedge funds, meanwhile Vince cable is perhaps conveniently practicing the art of not being seen.

Surprise, surprise the man behind the new totally over the top CRB checks to allegedly protect British children is a Corporate Nazi American. Its just another expensive endless IT project ( welfare state for the stock market parasites ), and if the Tories have an ounce of integrity they will scrap the whole thing when elected

The gangofone goes on about the BNP being national socialist but has he checked out their post EU election policies recently. It would appear that they have sold out to the eco-fascists on environment policy, perhaps Griffin fancies his chances with the leader of the Greens. The rest of their policies are totally impractical and perhaps nothing at all to do with what JadedJean would prescribe. Like all elected politicians it would appear that the BNP have sold out to the Corporate Nazi cause. Perhaps its due to not being able to get a UK bank account, and despite alleged EU funding they are sending out begging letters to anyone they have contact details for.

One thing I have maintained in the NN blog is that political parties are all political parties, even the BNP and Greens. Should we expect anything else from them.
