The Banal Retentive series gives quotes from those giving the most spurious reasons against Scottish Independence and in favour of retaining the union.
The purpose of this series is to show that although this debate is a highly serious matter and in some places there is real debate going on, some politicians and opinion leaders, going by these quotes, either don’t think on a very deep level or don’t think serious arguments are needed to convince you.
This time it is Ruth Davidson. Her comments, apart from being demonstrably false, show that she thinks this level of discourse is all that is required to convince you to vote no.
So what did she say?
So there you have it, a false assertion that a once moderately decent but now declining TV show won’t be available to Scots, should apparently be enough to ward off this independence malarkey for some of you.
This article is about the shallowness of it, the image below by Stewart Bremner addresses the veracity of it.
