The Scottish Tories and Dark Money

A great video by Sarah Mackie on the Scottish Tories and dark money.

This is something I mentioned on this site as far back as January, and plenty of other bloggers have been on it too. It’s strange that busy people who have to work can find some things about this but professional journalists can’t seem to find anything.

81d81efaace4cdaf17e73d1f45af1974--pensions-scottish-independenceThe 166th episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast features, amongst other things, an interview with Peter Swain of Pensioners for Independence (courtesy of Independence Live).

Hope you enjoy.

With Scotland In Union looking like a busted crap hand, rather than a busted flush, it is important to remember that shadowy groups of rich union supporters have other groups and are likely just to move their money to those ones.

We already know about some of them, and we can expect others to crop up. As independence supporters we need to keep our eyes open for them.

Here is just one example, it is a group that has a nice, neutral sounding name. This is done in order to give the media licence to pretend that any material they produce is honest and impartial public interest research…
