Aamer Anwar has blocked me on Twitter


Aamer Anwar has blocked me on Twitter.
So I guess I will have to take back all the nice things I said about Aamer as he joins the witchhunt against me for my anti-racist, socialist, feminist, republican political views.

Was it something I had tweeted, about the SNP leadership election perhaps? Check out my blog post on my preview blog.

Dennis Canavan - too supportive of Humza Yousaf - not the man to lead the Scottish independence movement


Dennis and I go back a long way - we shared a platform at a fringe meeting at a Scottish Labour Party conference on the subject of organising unemployed workers in oh, must have been the later 1980s. So what I say now is more in sorrow than in anger.
"Is it now a crime for a politician to spend time with his child ? When I was first elected as MP, I had four young children. Now they are all dead. One of my biggest regrets is that, because of my job, I did not spend more time with them. So keep on being a good Dad, Humza."
- tweeted Dennis and I replied as follows

Replying to @DennisCanavan

Yes Humza, keep on being a good dad but stop being such a Useless Cabinet Secretary and resign!

Replying to @DennisCanavan

Is it a crime for a gentleman to seek to start a family of his own by attempting to court the ladies in a respectful way? Because the SNP Gestapo say it is - and not once did Humza Useless ever suggest that the courts in Scotland are unjustly criminalising gentlemen, as they are.

Replying to @DennisCanavan

What the independence movement can't have Dennis is the betrayal of the Scots to a fascist like Useless turning a blind eye to gross injustices done to gentlemen - some kind of modern witch-hunt but against older men.

He's moved on from Justice but he's no better at Health.

Replying to @HumzaYousaf and @DennisCanavan

Yes Dennis, Humza is in awe at the way you have thrown under a bus every Scot ever fitted up on a false charge by the SNP Gestapo.

Where is your solidarity Dennis? Because all I see is you kissing Humza's arse and fuck that.

Replying to @DennisCanavan

The Scots would very much like to know what your idea of "a crime" is Dennis, because it rather looks like you think a crime is whatever the SNP says it is.

So if the SNP wants to take me or any Scot political prisoner, you'd be OK with that would you Dennis?

That concluded my reply to Dennis but I will note for the record that I was taken as a political prisoner by the SNP Gestapo in July 2014 while Dennis was Chair of the YES Scotland campaign and terrorised by Aberdeen Sheriff Court to stop campaigning online for a YES vote for the last 7 weeks of the independence campaign - and the rest was history.

I didn't blame Dennis for that, nor Humza Yousaf - it was Kenny MacAskill who was Salmond's Justice Secretary governing the police at the time, after all.

What I do blame Dennis for is never since the defeat of the YES Scotland campaign in 2014 has Dennis ever called out the taking of political prisoners during the indy-ref, never once pointing out that no campaign can be correctly claimed to be "free and fair" while political prisoners are taken and individuals banned from campaigning by threat of an accusation of a "breach of bail conditions" and imprisonment - something I have complained about, a lot!

Never once has Dennis called into question the validity of the referendum result achieved as it was with the rigging of the campaign to favour the NO campaign by taking YES campaigners as political prisoners, such as myself.

So I do question Dennis's fitness to lead the Scottish independence campaign though I note that he is still quoted by the National now and then.

New Law Officers: Are Bain & Charteris the same sort of filthy liars as the Were-Wolffe, Di Rollo and their fascist prosecutors?


Will the First Minister's nominations for her government's new law officers - Dorothy Bain for Lord Advocate and Ruth Charteris for Solicitor General - be the same sort of filthy liars as James Wolffe and Alison Di Rollo and their fascist prosecutors are?

Will they put a stop to malicious prosecutions by the likes of fascist depute procurator fiscal James Robertson Dunbar

of gentlemen like me for our harmless flirtatious remarks, maliciously mischaracterised by the likes of disgraced former SNP Councillor and SNP Press Officer, Catriona Mackenzie, with the connivance of SNP MSP for Aberdeen Central and notorious panto villain Kevin Stewart?

Because if these new law officers won't make that kind of difference, if they carry on in the same treacherous manner, which I have documented here in my political defence blog there will be no justice in Scotland.

And if there is no justice in Scotland then every time this man pops up claiming to be a "Justice Secretary of a Government of Scotland" that too will be another filthy lie.


My recommendation for Lord Advocate was Aamer Anwar but no longer - see Aamer Anwar has blocked me on Twitter.

STATEMENT to the POLICE from Scientist Peter Dow

UPDATE: 10.15am

Got a phone call this morning 8.30am from the police officer concerned - I think he identified himself as "Constable Paterson" and I told him I had sent the police a statement by email. He said as I wasn't willing to open my door to him, he would take my email which the police had received, text quoted below, as "corroboration" and a report would be sent to the Procurator Fiscal (alleging some trumped-up criminal offence). I asked him to pass on my apologies to the Sainsbury's checkout girl concerned.


Address: Ground Right Flat, 21 Hollybank Place, Aberdeen, AB11 6XR
Full name: Alastair Peter Dow. Date of Birth: ** ******** ****. Age 60.
Occupation: Amateur Scientist and Political Activist

Police officers of Police Scotland were at my door on Sunday, 7th March 2021, wanting to take me to Kittybrewster Police Custody Centre for questioning. I spoke to them through the door and on my mobile. They are returning on Wednesday, 9am. They did not leave any note of their names or a police number.

I was afraid to open the door to them because to be honest with you, as a scientist, I am more worried about catching Covid.

The police officers at my door seemed to think that if you don't have symptoms it is safe to meet indoors. That is not true.
Many people carry the virus without symptoms - "asymptomatic transmission" we call it.

The police are not scientists. I am the scientist, not the police. The police don't know what they are talking about.

I am now 60 years old but I have not yet been offered my first vaccination dose.

I'm in priority group 7
All those aged 60 - 64
Letters will begin arriving from week commencing 8th March with appointments starting from week commencing 15th March.
I could catch Covid if I breathe in virus particles left by a person who was infected with Covid, albeit without symptoms, who is in, or who was recently in - the police car, at Kittybrewster Police Custody Centre, in the prison van to the Sheriff Court or in the Sheriff Court building.

My younger cousin died from Covid so this could be a death sentence for me.

I plead with the police - please follow the science - coronavirus is an airborne virus and anywhere indoors is a risk, unless you are home alone, as I always prefer to be.

I am NOT GUILTY of any crime but if I am charged I may just plead "Guilty" immediately in order to short-circuit the process to where I am paying a fine from home and safe instead of pleading "NOT GUILTY" in court and catching Covid and dying from it.

I would rather admit to another false conviction, pay a fine and get out of there fast.

I have issued the following statement to the press, published it on the internet and emailed it to all Aberdeen lawyers and Aberdeen City Councillors.

The SNP Gestapo are threatening to commit a new crime against humanity by interrupting my Covid science research and leadership

Police at my door today threatening to take me to Kittybrewster Police Custody Centre

Earlier today, police officers were at my Aberdeen door wanting to "speak to me" (meaning detain/arrest me and take me to Kittybrewster Police Custody centre for questioning).

Seems Sainsbury's 124-130 Holburn St, (where, until now, I had been a regular customer) made a complaint and as I confirmed in a telephone call to them this evening I'm now banned!

I know when I'm not wanted and if Aberdeen Sainsbury's don't want my custom then I am happy to shop elsewhere.

Involving the police and the police deciding to make this into a matter of taking me into custody for questioning is just way over the top and one more reason to sack Chief Constable Iain Livingstone because his command is utterly incompetent and wasteful and meanwhile real criminals are committing real crime which is not being prevented or detected.

The stupid, bad police are choosing to go after open, honest and innocent people who have nothing to hide because innocent citizens like us are so much easier to catch. Policing in this country now is a complete disgrace.

This is not good policing; this is police harassment and persecution which the SNP Government are fully funding because they want the police and courts harassing innocent individuals like me, whom they don't like, on pretexts which involve absolutely nothing criminal whatsoever.

I had a conversation about this on Twitter which I thought I would include for a complete report.

Check out my Coronavirus posts on my Preview blog.

I'm a scientist doing my duty to help to fight, contain and defeat this pandemic.

The police should stop arresting scientists and leave us to get on with our duty in the service of the people and of humanity.

When you think about it, the police are committing a crime against humanity when they interrupt scientists doing our duties for humanity.

So the SNP Government are paying police to commit crimes against humanity and that's why it is fair to call them an SNP Gestapo because the real Gestapo committed more crimes against humanity than anyone - even the SNP.

Kevin Stewart: Bad for the SNP, Bad for Aberdeen

Kevin Stewart LIES!
Please DON'T vote for Kevin Stewart as the SNP candidate for Aberdeen Central constituency Member of the Scottish Parliament in May.

Stewart has been a very bad Member of the Scottish Parliament, misrepresenting Aberdeen's interests and betraying me when I asked for his help as my MSP but instead he conspired with his SNP press secretary and then SNP Councillor Catriona Mackenzie, to fit me up on a false charge for which I was wrongfully arrested, maliciously prosecuted, unjustly convicted and terrorised into paying a fine of £300.

Mackenzie has since resigned as a councillor, in disgrace of course, but Stewart has the brass neck not to resign. Stewart seems to be hoping that Mackenzie will take all the political fall for this but the responsibility for the sting, the deceitful operation they planned together to set me up, was Stewart's responsibility too.

Stewart has bunkered down and tried to ignore my questions about his treachery but I will hold him to account if I can because I don't want Stewart to betray any other voter in Aberdeen, as he betrayed my trust and my vote.

The SNP should take a long hard look at why they are fielding Stewart as their candidate in the elections to the Scottish Parliament? Stewart's shenanigans must be doing some long term damage to the SNP's reputation for honest politics. The SNP would do much better with another candidate.

I predict that Stewart's political career has a rocky road ahead but the question I have is will the SNP let Stewart take the SNP's political fortunes in Aberdeen down with him or will the SNP cut Stewart loose to save the party they love?

It's pantomime all year round at Holyrood, with panto villain Kevin Stewart

Sunday 8 December 2019


The political map of the UK general election results in 2017 in Scotland, presents Scots with one opportunity to STOP THE TORIES in the parts of Scotland where the Tories won seats last time - Aberdeen South, Aberdeenshire and the North East, Stirling Ochil and South Perthshire, the South and the Borders etc. - and that is to vote for the SNP on Thursday as the party which came 2nd last time in those Westminster seats and the only party which has a real chance of beating the Tories in the seats that they hold.

This is a first past the post election so voting any other way in Tory-held seats would risk letting the Tories back in without a fight.

The polls are warning that Tories could win big in England and that would mean a world of hurt for Scotland under Prime Minister Boris Johnson, our only escape from which could be to win independence, which the SNP do support, whereas Labour and the Liberal Democrats as unionists expect us Scots to suffer under any UK Government, no matter how terrible for Scots.

I don't even believe that the Tories can be trusted with regard to fishing rights because they have done nothing to get UK waters out of the European Union Common Fisheries Policy since the LEAVE vote 3+ years ago when they could easily have ordered the Royal Navy to exclude foreign fishing boats but never did anything to protect our fishing waters and fishing stocks. Knowing the treacherous Tories, they will sell our fishing industry out once again.

I've got my own particular reasons for not trusting the Tories here in Aberdeen - the time years ago that Aberdeen Conservative Councillor and Justice of the Peace Michael Hastie was too weak to stand up against Post Office financial mismanagement encouraging the crimes of fraud, theft and robbery and endangering victims with violence, leading to at least one murder that we know of.

Hastie fined and jailed me rather than support my rights and duty to blow the whistle about the urgent need for crime prevention action.
Tory stupidity, criminality and treachery is about as bad as it gets so we must use our votes tactically to stop the Tories wherever we can.
