Not To Be Forgotten

We are still in the middle of the umpteenth nauseating shitfit thrown by the Unionist media. They usually throw the toys out of the pram in this manner when somone mildy criticises them for the untrue and vicious invective they throw at the independence movement every day.

One of the actors in this particular chimpanzee-fling is Lib Dem MSP Alex Cole-Hamilton. He is complaining to OfCom about the treatment of a particular “journalist” and how it is all unfair to treat the media in this way.

From how he and others are talking you’d think it was the case that the independence movement, with much less coverage and much less funding, was drowning out a frothing and almost all pervasive unionist media.

If this is the case (and it isn’t), how does this all square with this little message left by the libdems, for journalists who came to their party conference a while back? Furthermore, what does this little lovenote say about the impartiality of the media on the Scottish independence issue?

Not Just Scotland In Union

The CRC has no website, publishes no accounts and does not reveal the names of its donors.

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…

Scottish Independence Podcast 162 – Trump and Tories

Davidson2 The 162nd episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast is a quick run through of some of the things that Trump and the Tories have been up to.

Some listeners may find the amount of Ruth Davidson in it upsetting, however, when she is in it, she is constistently making an arse of herself. She also says some terminological inexactitudes, seems to forget that welfare isn’t a devolved matter and more.

There is also someone making fun of Trump, but the problem with that is that whatever you say about him, he is easily able to outdo it with what he says himself.
