Website (http://pnsa.bravehost.com/)

One of the founders informs me that the site is still under construction, but they seem to have big ambitions.
It would be a good alternative to the mainstream Scottish National Party, who are anything but true, ethnic Nationalists.

This is the thing about the main Irish, Welsh and Scottish Nationalist parties; they have such bad feelings towards what they believe that anachronistic construct, the United Kingdom, has meted out upon them, that their idea of Nationalism is 'anyone in, but "Brits"' ("Brits" usually meaning the English).

Such 'bad feelings' are merited only by the Irish Nationalists IMO, whose country was, indeed, treated shockingly by the contemptible British Empire.

It's just a website which appear to have been thrown together by a solitary teenager (who, rather pathetically, is the only person who posts on their forum).

No-one is ever going to take this seriously, and I don't blame them (because I don't either).

The idea is certainly ambitious, but the name is ill-chosen: First of all, it is in Gaelic - this follows the SNP's paradigm of Celtic Scotland whilst totally neglecting the Germanic heritage and Scots language. Secondly, anything that has "National Socialism" in it will be met with disdain by the population, a more clever name would be of more use. Sad enough, but true - we are nowhere near a stage where the term "National Socialism" can be used freely whilst still having an audience that listens further than the name.

I'll have to look through the "manifesto" to see what it is all about and to analyse its potential --- but the fact, that any freshly starting group should define itself by a programme rather than encouraging its members to write free-standing articles by which the reader can make his own judgment, is counterproductive and a questionable strategy, to say the least.

Obviously free-standing articles should have a "general tenor" but predefining a certain programme at this stage, with the battle not too far ahead, is a questionable tactic.

Hmm, had a quick look at the site, and, in theory, it sounds good, although i think that people are too well brainwashed to vote for anyone who has policies such as these - and the media would just cry the usual 'N' word, of course... but i'd vote for them if they were in an election. I have voted for the bnp, but i'm a bit suspicious of them - there's something about some of them that i really distrust...
