Jim Arnott's insight:

At first I couldn't believe what I was reading and then I thought this is typical of the guff the Scotsman serves up to the good people of Scotland. What a pun o' mince or is it tripe.

 

Vote Yes in the 2014 Referendum on independence for Scotland.

Murrison dutifully regurgitates the discredited and comprehensively debunked unionist claptrap about Scotland and Nato. The only thing that makes his remarks even vaguely interesting is the way in which he makes a complete fool of himself by presuming to know the representatives of the Scottish Government who met with Nato officials came away "disappointed" and "ashamed". How could he possibly be aware of the way these civil servants felt? How likely is it that these professionals would succumb to such emotions?

Certainly nothing in the subsequent statements fro the Scottish Government showed the slightest hint of "disappointment" or "embarrassment". Quite the contrary. And comments from less blatantly prejudiced observers tended to conclude that the Scottish Government had every reason to be satisfied with the outcome of the talks.

Murrison is the latest in a long line of anti-independence propagandists who have shown themselves to be prepared - nay, eager - to play the bumbling buffoon in the name of preserving the British state. The entertainment value of this clownish conduct is wearing very thin.

But the burning question is "Was he paid?"
Charles Patrick O'Brien's comment, August 24, 2013 10:53 AM
I remember 1974 give or take a year when we were promised the defence posts at the St.Enoch's (now gone) Hotel,and when the SNP M.P.,s dropped down from 11 to 4 or 6,these magical "positions" vanished,we,as usual,got nothing except more sand in the face.Independence is the only way forward nothing can ever happen by staying the same.

David Cameron and Alistair Darling are to place British identity at the centre of the Unionist case against independence by attempting to convince the English and Scots they are part of the same family.

We've seen all the evidence we need of how the British state "values" Scotland with the latest belligerent threat to annexe Scottish territory in the event of a Yes vote. The hypocrisy of David Cameron and his British Labour allies is almost as sickening as their vaunting arrogance.

Beware Cyprus repeat at Faslane

Beware Cyprus repeat at Faslane | Unionist Shenanigans | Scoop.it

DOWNING Street has been quick to pour cold water on media reports that the Ministry of Defence (MoD) is toying with the notion of declaring the Trident nuclear submarine base in the Firth of Clyde a "sovereign base area", in the event of Scottish voters opting for independence. Effectively, this would mean Faslane and its nuclear stockpile remaining under British sovereignty, controlled by the MoD itself.

We note that Menzies Campbell is not much concerned with the arrogant belligerence of this latest threat from the British state Or the blatant affront to democracy. Or the insult to the people and parliament of Scotland. No! Campbell's sole concern is that the SNP might gain some electoral advantage.


British nationalists taking shallowness to the molecular level.
