Hi I am a newbie here.

I thought I would introduce myself in the Politics forum because I have authored a Scottish and international politics website which I call the "Scottish National Standard Bearer" website and the address is

scot.tk

You might like to view this profile video.

'The Right to Freedom of Assembly' (directed by David Graham Scott) is a 10 minute chapter of a longer film documentary titled 'The New Ten Commandments' which is about human rights from a Scottish perspective which was broadcast on BBC2 Scotland in December 2008.

'The Right to Freedom of Assembly' has been re-titled 'Scottish republican socialist Peter Dow, author and protestor' for upload to YouTube.

I also administer the For Freedom Forums - for robust political debate, inspired by Scots, open to all.

I hope you find something of interest in some of that and if you have any questions of course I will try to answer.

Something in your links is causing my IE browser to shut down to protect my system. It could just be a minor glitch. I have a keen interest in Scotland and read the Edinburgh Evening News on a regular basis of sorts.

I did note that.

I was interested in viewing the information on his web page but My IE browser detected malicious content and shut down my system. I may try it on 2000 Professional with a Netscape browser or on Linux. I will also try cleaning my IE browser.

I found nothing wrong with my browser so it was not my computer. That alone for me is reason to stay away. I read the Edinburgh Evening News on a fairly regular basis and have not heard of this guy. That means little as I just scan for articles of interest. I will see what I can find about his ideas from others. Maybe my friends there can tell me something of his ideas.

There a number of site for this guy o Google including UTube. Methinks it would be best if he weren't allowed on this Forum as the comments made are full of filth.

I got to it through Google under Peter Dow. He has a talk forum and the language is typical of working class Glaswegians. He seems to expound the the lowest denomiator amougst people. I know Freedom of speach and all that but there are limits. He is a so called Scottish Republican and an anti Monarch. I'm all for Scottish Independece but within the Commonwealth and retain the monarch as head of state. Hey the system works so why change it. Elizabeth is just not Queen of the UK, she is Queen of Canada, Australia, New Zealand and a bunch more countries, can't remember them all.

On Scot. sovereignty I must disagree. If the majority of the people want their independence and self government They should have it. Scotland was an independent country that was taken over by england and though I doubt they will fight again, observing major changes in the world map because of the economic times would not be a great shock.

Those I communicate with in Scotland today feel they would have been better off on their own and still would be.

I am not impressed with the UK as we invested a FORTUNE in their defense during WW2 and a good amount in WW1 and they failed to pay us back. Only a couple of the poorest countries ever did.

I have good friends in the UK also and most feel that the Monarchy is an antiquated expense that could be eliminated.

As always, it is their country to do with as they choose. I am concerned with this one.

Guys, this Peter Dow fellow got on another website I frequent and stirred trouble. He is bad news and should be ignored. I would recommend to Admin that he be kicked off.

I most heartily agree. Even before I looked up his site the uniform raised hackles.

I would guess he has to do something first and so for he has posted his information. If we do not reply, I suspect nothing happens. So far the discussion has been about what we found, not his subject matter. After my browser shut down because of the link, I had no interest in going back. I guess we just wait and see what happens.

Sorry everyone if I am so slow to reply but the email notification of Patch's reply got put in my spam folder and I have just noticed it. No other notifications were sent to other replies because I did not respond to the first notification. Hopefully, it will be OK now.


Hi Patch. smile.gif

Is that the .tk links which are not working for you, scot.tk and figh.tk?

You could try these two links instead which use scot.cz.cc links.

scot.cz.cc
Peter Dow's Scottish National Standard Bearer website

The For Freedom Forums for robust political debate

Any luck with those?

If not you could try via forscots.co.cc

forscots.co.cc
Peter Dow's Scottish National Standard Bearer website

The For Freedom Forums for robust political debate

I use IE7 myself so it sounds like you maybe have some kind of additional optional feature installed with your browser some kind of "Site Advisor"/"Net Nanny"/Filter running as well maybe?

Are you accessing the internet from a public internet connection - from a library, a college, university or workplace? Such places often have internet censorship imposed but the just buy in a program from a supplier and they have no idea what they are blocking and what they aren't blocking. Someone in management said - "Filter the internet!" So they do.

If you are working from a normal PC with unrestricted access to the internet then maybe it is something that you installed for "safer browsing".

There is NO good reason to block my site, but sometimes sites are blocked without any good reason ever being involved.

For example, there are many websites at the ".tk" address, of all kind. If one site there is a bad site then it might have given all the ".tk" sites a bad reputation which is quite unfair.

Patch, it would be helpful me to if you would let me know
  • if you can get though to my website and
  • what was it that was blocking you

Hi Carmac.

I don't wear a "uniform" because my outfit is not uniformly the same as anyone else's. My outfit is a one-of-a-kind design which I have made distinctive so as to try to NOT confuse with anyone's uniform, the SA or anyone else's.

Sorry if I have not managed to avoid confusing you but it was not deliberate.

Peter's Standard Bearer Outfit

As to why there should be so much curiosity about this I am not quite sure? Yet I have received so many comments and questions about what I am wearing in many of the photographs in my Scottish National Standard Bearer website that I think it will save me time in the long run if I produce a web-page about this which I can link to whenever the issue arises.

The Standard Bearer outfit which I wear on the rare occasions when I am doing some high profile campaigning is intended to be functional and the function is to complement my duties as a Scottish National Standard Bearer as regards the political and military functions which I have defined for the modern era in this website.

I have adapted a military-style jacket obtained from an army surplus shop. Clearly, it is not a "uniform" because as a unique custom-made outfit, it is not uniformly the same as clothing worn by anyone else.

Badges
The shoulder and chest Lion Rampant ("Scottish National Standard") badges were bought off the shelf. The Scotland flag lapel badges were made by a local company and the white border around the traditional St. Andrew's cross ("Saltire") is simply a manufacturing artefact rather than by design. The "DOW" name badge was home-made from items available from a hardware shop.

Republican red arm-band
The red arm band is a traditional method whereby socialists can identify themselves in situations where a threat to order may arise - when stewarding a demonstration or large public meeting or less frequently these days, in street-fighting against fascists.

For example, when a member of the Labour Party in Glasgow in the late 1980s, I wore a red arm-band while serving as a steward at a big public meeting addressed by Tony Benn.

Often the arm-band is simply a strip of red cloth tied around normal clothing. This is the inspiration for the slightly neater tailored version on my jacket.

In passing, I would of course reject any comparison with the use by Nazis of a red-arm-band-with-Nazi-swastika worn as part of some Nazi uniforms.

Real socialists had copyright on red arm bands long before the Nazis were thought of. The Nazis abused words as well as people, and they had no legitimate claim to the words "socialist", "nationalist" or the colour red.

I have thoughtfully written the word "REPUBLICAN" on the arm band, so that I could not be mistaken for one of the Queen's officers, and even if Labour MPs and MSPs swear allegiance to the UK monarch, I certainly do not, and so that I should not be mistaken for maybe a Salvation Army variation or para-medic or something.

Co-incidentally or not, the American republican party's colour is red and I would say I tend to be a more enthusiastic supporter of American republicans like Condoleezza Rice than do other Scottish, British and European socialists, so once again the word "REPUBLICAN" serves me well.

My outfit represents I believe my political roots in socialism and republicanism from where I began my journey to Scottish nationalism - and therefore it is not splendidly, overtly Scottish, with a kilt and so on, as you might see worn by the Scottish military.

I am not saying there is anything wrong with current Scottish military uniforms or anything, it is simply that I wish to be seen to reject the whole notion that if Prince Charles is in a kilt or some other royal dresses the same as a traditional Scottish soldier, that somehow makes that royal "one of us Scots" or loyal to Scotland when in fact he and his family are the true enemies of the Scots, however they dress.

Red trousers
Republican socialist red trousers - wearing this colour of trousers saves me from having to carry the people's Red Flag, first dyed red by the blood of socialist martyrs, as well as the Lion Rampant, Scottish National Standard. After all, I only have one pair of hands.
