SCOTS ELECTORATE DELIVERS HUMILIATING DEFEAT TO UKIP

GLUM FARAGE 2

 

Only 3% of the entire Scottish electorate chose to endorse UKIP candidates in the European Elections.

Scots gave an unambiguous thumbs-down to UKIP policies in last Thursday’s ballot.

It is the worst defeat for any established party in the history of European Parliamentary Elections in Scotland, and in stark contrast to UKIP’s performance in England.

It thus dramatically underlines the widening gap between the views of Scottish and English voters on matters of immigration and membership of the EU.

In stunning contrast, the SNP beat all comers to top the poll though they are the incumbent party fully seven years in power.

Conflation Sums: SNP + Salmond != independence

Featured

Scotland’s Sunday Herald today backs SNP and declares itself for separation. Will other papers join them?

12:26 PM – 4 May 2014

 

There is a difference between backing the SNP and eloquently expressing a firm commitment to the cause of an independent Scotland, as the Sunday Herald has so nobly done.

The conflation of the two is of course a centrepiece of the Unionist media disinformation narrative.

It goes hand-in-glove with their attempt to inculcate the risible notion that the referendum is a vanity project of  Alex Salmond that no Scots, save a few malcontents, ever wanted.

Paul Kavanagh at weegingerdug put it beautifully when he offered that the question the Unionists want voters to read is: “Should Scotland be an alecsammin country?”

The SNP will one day fragment, probably sooner than later, when the glue that binds it’s disparate factions (achieving an independent Scotland) is dissolved.

There is a very real sense in which the policies put forward by the present Scottish Government for a post independence Scotland are irrelevant to the question of independence itself.

In 2016 after Scotland becomes independent, there will be a general election to choose an new government. At that time the People will get the last word on who will rule Scotland.

It may be the SNP if it holds together, or some other party or coalition of parties. The social, economic, and political, direction of iScotland will be determined by that government and subsequent governments carrying out their mandate granted to them by the People.

First Ministers come and go, and “Alex Salmon is mortal”, as Jim Sillars puts it, “but Scotland is immortal”.

Neither the SNP nor Alex Salmond are on the ballot. We need encourage the vital cohort of low information and unengaged voters who will decide this contest, to consider that this is at bottom a simple choice:

Whether to be masters in our own house or lodgers in someone else’s.

Fraser Nelson has already made that choice, we need not follow him there.

SUNDAY HERALD ENDORSES INDEPENDENCE!

The Sunday Herald, for some time the most neutral of any major paper in  Britain has come out in favour of independence!

The announcement

The Editorial explains their reasoning, one with which we ourselves cannot disagree.

 ”Scotland is an ancient nation and a modern society. We understand the past, as best we can, and guess at the future. But history is as nothing to the lives of the children being born now, this morning, in the cities, towns and villages of this country.

“On their behalf, we assert a claim to a better, more decent, more just future in which a country’s governments will be ruled always by the decisions of its citizens.”

What drives us is the simple belief that tomorrow can be better than today. NO’s message is that this is as good as it gets.

BBC FUNNELLED 3/4 MILLION POUNDS IN SECRET KICKBACKS TO CBI

Featured

scottish  notesConsternation and outraged gripped the Independence campaign as the BBC admitted funnelling at least three quarters of a million pounds (at today’s equivalent value) of public money in kickbacks to the CBI.

cbi since 1980

The revelation came buried in an online BBCNews report  where  

suitcase of pounds

The BBC had previously stated it had been secretly a member of the CBI “for at least ten years“.

We ourselves contacted the BBC and asked why the had given this original statement of “at least ten years”,  when they knew it to be grossly misleading, and why they had kept from licence holders for decades, the pertinent fact that they were bankrolling a partisan political organisation in violation of their charter.

We still await an answer from the state funded broadcaster.

The BBC throughout this referendum campaign has given generous ink and airtime to CBI claims of Scotland’s inability to govern itself and the cataclysmic consequences if it dare try.

Not once during any of those reports, which many found indistinguishable from a Better Together Campaign press release, did the BBC disclose its intimate financial and institutional relationship with the politically partisan CBI.50 pounds

The CBI recently registered as an activist agency in the anti-independence campaign before it hemorrhaged members who considered its partisan political activities inconsistent with its avowed role as representatives of their interests.

The BBC however, remains a member and has refused to resign, saying only that it would temporarily suspend its membership when it was legally compelled to do so from May 30 2014.

Questions have arisen challenging the legality of the BBC’s operation, with commentators suggesting that the Corporation’s behaviour evinces criminal wrongdoing.

They allege that the BBC has diverted public money for use in promoting the anti-independence cause, that this revelation is dispositive of that, and that those responsible should face prosecution.

Put succinctly:

Taxpayer £ > BBC > CBI > Better Together Campaign = election fraud & criminal conspiracy > handcuffs > jail
