The newly crowned “Quisling’s Newspaper of Choice” – The Scotsman – is once again belying its name today as it continues in its increasingly desperate efforts to put down Scotland and smear the independence movement. This morning’s fare is nothing more than a Tory party political broadcast in printed form:
Meanwhile the Labour Daily Record squirms uncomfortably as one of their own, Eric Joyce MP, gets banged-up and charged with 3 counts of common assault after getting drunk and going mental in the House of Commons bar like a ned on a night out. As it struggles to find a suitable stick with which to beat the independence movement (pun not intended, maybe), they’re forced to rehash an old story instead:
Apart from discussing Labour’s elected thug Eric Joyce, not much is being said by The Guardian about events ‘north of the border’. So instead they have some pictures from David Cameron’s calamitous state visit to the province, including THAT one with our new hero Iain McNeil:
The Telegraph however has its claws firmly extended as it adopts an unusually aggressive stance against the Scottish Government. Things must be getting desperate right enough:
Lastly today we have an interesting article from the British Forces News and how independence will impact upon service personnel:
Today marks the day The Scotsman finally earned the title of “the Quisling’s newspaper of choice.” For after weeks spent constantly downing those sharing its name, this most virulently pro-BritNat of Caledonian dailies has overstepped the mark at last in its pursuit to keep the Union Jack flying over Edinburgh.
In an act of shameless bias, unbefitting of a broadsheet of its alleged quality, the True-Blue belittling of Scotland reached new depths this morning as it stepped up a gear to deliver even more spin that a Zanussi washing machine:
Meanwhile the Labour Daily Record was slightly less vitriolic that its BritNat counterpart in Edinburgh, but nonetheless gleefully reports the suspect finding of the nystery ‘think tank’ in addition to supporting Michael Moore’s continuing drive to overrule the democratically elected Scottish Government’s manifesto commitment through increasing desperation:
The Daily Express seems to have remembered where Scotland is again, as it criticises the Scottish Government’s decision to sensibly merge the country’s numerous Police forces into one:
Also breaking its silence is the BRITISH Broadcasting Corporation, once more jumping onto the BritNat bandwagon whilst continually overlooking all the positives of Scottish independence.
So, apart from the BritNat Bedfellows all sharing the same stories, that’s all there is for today. More tomorrow…
Well after the turmoil of debate surrounding April’s birthday march for Adolf Hitler by National Front in Aberdeen, the press is a bit more sedate today.
Indeed, the BritNats seem to be slowly realising all their hysterical rants against Scottish independence seem to be backfiring, as the public get fed up of being patronised by London politicians and their North British lackeys. Serial BriNat rag, The Scotsman, leads the was as ever and learns nothing from its own message:
The Daily Mail meanwhile is having such an anti-EU rant against the Greek bailout that it seems to have forgotten all about the ungrateful Seperatists in the northern province. Instead it lambastes local councils for preventing the “nation” from celebrating the Hanoverian queen’s jubilee:
Labour’s Daily Record takes time out from its obsession with Rangers FC to turn Jekyll and Hyde. Some good old fashioned Nat-bashing mixed with classic 90 minute patriotism. It really is an odd paper:
So as it’s been fairly quiet on the press front today, we’ll leave the last word to that bastion of Unionism, Britain First. Here they outline their reasoning behind the retention of the Union, and it must be said it bears a lot of resemblance to the National Front, BNP, UKIP and all those other hard-line little BritNat groups:
Still, if they’re encouraging people to vote YES in the referendum, we won’t complain….
So, the National Front want to hold a rally in Aberdeen on the 20th April to protest against the SNP. The fact this happens to be the same day as Adolf Hitler’s birthday is purely circumstantial.
So what do the National Front themselves have to say about Scottish independence, and in particular the “ethnic loving SNP”?
Aberdeen’s own Evening Express seemed a little suspicious about the march’s true motivation, if their picture is anything to go by:
And the National Front’s BritNat colleagues at The Scotsman are obviously a bit low on scare stories just now, so they’ve had to regurgitate an old one instead to manufacture a negative headline:
Not to be outdone by the Jocks, the Daily Mail adds its own spin to the same story:
Now we’re not sure if this actually constitutes a negative news story by the Daily Record, but it’s worth noting it anyway as the BritNats continue to panic:
We’ll leave the last word today to a rather unusual source. For it seems the pros and cons of independence reach far as the Caterer and Hotelkeeper discuss the issue at some length:
Well it’s a new week. And after all the hoo-ha over David Cameron’s state visit to North Britain to confront our First Minister, there’s still a degree of reverberation in this morning’s headlines.
Naturally, the British Bulldog that is The Scotsman is first to don its Union Jack waistcoat, before stepping out the door do commence shouting its negative message through its metaphoric BritNat megaphone:
Given the paper’s ever increasing sense of desperation to drown any positive messages in favour of independence, perhaps we should give the Scotsman its own dedicated section from now on. It does seem to have taken on the mantel of official BritNat Media Harbinger of Doom.
Middle England’s very own Daily Mail takes a somewhat unusual stance in chastising David Cameron for paying TOO MUCH attention to Scotland, neglecting his party’s English heartland as a result. Bad man!
The Guardian, meanwhile, seems to offer a note of acceptance to the inevetability of constitutional change as it offer the British PM some advice on federalisation:
The main English version of The Sun is off on a unique tangent, scraping the bottom of the smear barrel to beat Thatcher’s dusty old drum about some stolen Argentine territory 6000 miles away. Well, its pathetic jingoism worked in 1982 after all:
Unsurprisingly, there’s no mention of this in The Sun’s tartan & shortbread edition from Glasgow.
So that’s it for today unfortunately. Pretty quiet on the BritNat front so far. Even the Daily Record is quiet, but as it’s Labour controllers have climbed firmly into bed with the Tories again, perhaps they’re hiding behind David Cameron. Time will tell…
Sunday has a habit of bringing out those seldom seen during the week. For example, the infamous ‘Sunday Driver’, blocking the highways and byways in pursuit of a leisurely tour round the countryside.
Then, as the Labour Sunday Mail shows, we have serial BritNat Douglas Alexander making a rare appearance in the public gaze:
And in something of a back-heeled own goal by the Mail on Sunday, we had a great laugh at Cameron’s expense when that now famous picture of him eating porridge last week took an unexpected twist:
Union Hijacked is now an official fan of Ian McNeil!
Meanwhile the Sunday Telegraph is warning middle England of the evils in making deals with the wickedly ungrateful Alex Salmond:
Back in the north, the Scotland on Sunday continues in its efforts to undermine Scottish self-determination by dragging America into the debate in addition to its regular Nat-bashing:
Though there was one story today which did catch our eye for different reasons:
But to round off this morning’s collection of spin, we thought we’d conclude with a picture of our new National hero Ian McNeil, and THAT withering stare:
Now the dust has settled on David Cameron’s wasted trip to Edinburgh, the press has once again returned its majority focus to other newsworthy events.
As ever, the Daily Mail is first in the queue to reprimand the British PM for travelling north instead of making Alex Salmond go to cap-in-hand London instead:
The Daily Express is a bit behind the times, but still feels obliged to state the BritNat case one more time anyway:
Predictably, The Scotsman is once again flying the red, white & blue:
The Telegraph must clearly have listened to a different speech yesterday, as it seems to believe Cameron managed to get the better of Salmond. He probably had them at the word “empire”:
The rest of the papers have been strangely quiet, a clear sign that Salmond triumphed over the ineffectual Cameron once more. Even the overseas papers have been largely positive, so today’s summary is a tad shorter than expected – which is good news when you think about it!
