Libdems

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?

The Scottish Independence Podcast 44 – Alastair Hutchison

SSA52347For the 44th episode of the Scottish Independence Podcast the guest was Alastair Hutchison from the group Lib Dem Voters for Indy.

We talked about the group and how it got started. We talked about why liberals may or may not make the jump from federalism to independence and we talked about why the Libdems didn’t join with SNP in 2007, when such a thing might have been the logical step.

Alastair is also a Hearts fan, and we talked about Hearts fans and how the debate is playing out in a group that unusually includes Alex Salmond AND George Foulkes.
