The Financial Times and the rest of the press have suppressed the huge news story that despite all the Unionist push-polls, all the expert talk of YES stalling and losing ground, 46% of the Scottish electorate will now vote for independence (excluding undecided who in this plebiscite are expected to break disproportionately for indy).
They have buried the lede under piles of data on English attitudes. You can bet had theYES/NO polling data trend favoured the Unionist cause, the story would have been splashed across the front pages of Her Majesty’s press.
Oh, and the BBC? Well, they have completely suppressed it. They will argue policy prohibits coverage in an election campaign.
Excluding undecided, YES vote is 46%, just 4 points + one single solitary vote away from victory and the re-establishment of Scottish independence.
‘Course, you’d never know that from this three-card-trick of an article and its accompanying smoke and mirrors.
With respect to salient question of whether the United Kingdom of Great Britain will be dissolved and finally consigned to the dustbin of history, the ONLY number that matters is the one given above.
The people of Scotland will decide whether or not they will continue in this binary Union with England. All the rest is obfuscation. That’s the cold reality that Westminster, the Fourth Estate, and the angry and contemptuous britnat fringe, are going to have to learn to live with.
In its censoring of the voice of the Scottish electorate on the ONLY question on the ballot, the establishment press has disgraced itself.
