The Unionists are up to there old tricks - tell as many lies over and over again and the bigger the lie the better. This article is first class at exposing the lies and misinformation perpetrated by wee Richard Baker - wee in stature and wee in intellect. Simply put, this is just more Unionist shenanigans
1. The UK Government's "pound for independence" gaffe saw the Treasury say independence would cost just £1 each for the period 1999-2011 – backfiring on claims that an independent Scotland would be worse off.
At this rate there will be over 100 No campaign gaffes by the time of the Referendum. Keep them coming No Campaign - I know these gaffes are persuading some Scots to see the folly of voting to maintain the status quo.
Who the Hell is Torquil Crighton when he is at home? Is he an expert on oil exploration or an oil economist? I don't think so. As I see him, he is nothing more than a wee unionist - enough said. Oh! that Westminster had only looked at scenario planning over the last 40 years and the UK might not be in the financial mess it's in at the moment.
I like this comment in the comments on the article:
Don't know about the rest of you but when I see these absurdly bias headlines I just go straight to the comments. If the comments show the article to be interesting or balanced only then do I read it. Life's too short....
Maybe I should have taken this sage advice before I read this article - but then I would not have known just how absurd Brian Momteith is.
So not only is the BBC utterly biased regarding independence for Scotland, it is biased against the Conservatives. Obviously the BBC is out of control. Wouldn't be ironic if the BBC's bias was eliminated by the unionist Conservatives?
Poor Old Cockers teases us with the merest hint of a suggestion that the scales may be falling from his bloodshot-white-and-blue British nationalist eyes, only to let us down by quickly reverting to his customary, spittle-flecked anti-SNP ways.
Is Poor Old Cockers offended by the lies and betrayal of the British state that he has glimpsed through the pea-soup fog of his Britnat prejudice?
Is he at all concerned at the impact on Scotland of this betrayal?
Not a bit of it! All that troubles Poor Old Cockers is the fact that the hated SNP may have been gifted some political advantage. His main criticism of Philip Hammond, it seems, is that the man is not sleekit enough to do Scotland down in a less obtrusive manner.
It is not the betrayal of Scotland that's got Poor Old Cockers' dilapidated dander up. It's the failure to live up to perfidious Albion's traditional standards of underhanded deviousness.
Not content with this morning’s Daily Mail masterclass in misinformation on pensions and embassies, eagle-eyed reader Andy Inglis also offers us this quite remarkable interpretation of the Eastleigh by-election result from the same source:
There’s a stereotype of Scottish people that their reaction to a sunny day is that of this post’s title – that good weather now isn’t something to be enjoyed, but merely a harbinger of much less favourable conditions to come.
Rather than make hay while the sun shines, runs the old joke, the pessimistic (and stingy) Scots go out to the shops looking for umbrellas being sold at a discount.
Business survey only allows options that are critical of independence. Why? Is it because they are afraid of the answers they might get if they allowed businesses to express opposition to the status quo? This is no way to carry out a survey of business opinion on the pros and cons of Scotland remaining in the United Kingdom.
Cameron is certainly running scared. How demeaning that he suggests Scotland's First Minister should have a debate with a failed former Chancellor. Cameron has to substantiate his claim that Scotland would be better staying with the status quo. Cameron et al have signally failed to make their case and hence his refusal to debate with the most accomplished politician promoting the positive vision of an independent Scotland. Scots will not be impressed with such a big feartie.
When the Daily Record lost Magnus Gardham to the Herald, they made sure to call on a like-for-like replacement. Torcuil Crichton, the newspaper’s self-styled “man in Westminster” (and who has never approved a single comment on his political blog in almost five years), is Gardham’s only rival as the most virulently and overtly Unionist staff reporter – as opposed to opinion columnist – in the Scottish media.
I couldn't have said this any better than "Guga" in the comments section of the article:
"There seems to be no end to the attempted scaremongering, bile-mongering, blatant lies and propaganda being regurgitated by the One Nation, Bitter Together Unionists, Quislings and Fifth Columnists.
The anti-Scottish attitude of the Quislings in particular is both disgusting and cringe-worthy. They don't appear to realize that their behaviour is appalling to real Scots, and must give a very poor impression to many people overseas when they see these pathetic little people berating their own country.
We know that the English are desperate to hang on to Scotland as they know that we are propping up the failed English state, but if the Quislings are so keen on being part of England, all they need to do is move.
The Hootsmon, being English owned and English run, will, of course, continue to print all the lies and bile emanating from, and on behalf of, their sponsors in the New Blue London Labour Party (Scottish Branch)"
As always, don't neglect to read the comments section on articles posted on the scotsman. .
Darling just doesn't know his position. He is an MP and head on the No campaign. He is not Prime Minister and in seeking a debate with the First Minister of Scotland he is acting above his pay-grade. When he has something positive to say about Scotland, that will be the time to ask for a dedate with the Yes Scotland campaign. Until he has something positive to say, I suggest he spends his time in serious contemplation of the issues affecting Scotland.
On the day figures show the health of Scotland’s economy the UK Government’s Energy Minister has exposed the no campaigns’ doom and gloom predictions by admitting that North Sea oil & gas has a long and healthy life ahead of it.
Coming on a day when the No campaign’s only response to the latest GERS figures has been to talk down the future of the oil & gas sector, these comments clearly show the doublethink at work at the heart of the anti-independence camp.
Students of the Scottish media weren’t exactly surprised when the BBC’s Glenn Campbell published a story yesterday lunchtime (12.07pm) entitled “Scottish independence: Luxembourg warns against ‘going separate ways’” and opening with the more specific line “The government of Luxembourg has warned against Scotland becoming an independent country.”
We were oddly pleased to discover yesterday that the full iPad edition of the Daily Record is free five days a week. Partly because, regardless of content, reading the actual paper (albeit on a screen) is a much more evocative wee reminder of home than a generic website, and partly because the Record’s online presence carries only a fraction of the stories of the print version.
When someone sent us the image below on Twitter, we actually went to the “Better Together” Facebook page to verify it was real, because it can be hard to tell the No campaign’s real leaflets and posters from satire. But it’s totally genuine.
