MacAesops Fables #28 – The First Shepherd and the Dog

Our twenty-seventh Sunday outpouring of sanctimony and self-righteous morality to be taken as seriously as the Cybernat belief that Wee Eck being booed was a Unionist conspiracy

“A propagandist is a specialist in selling attitudes and opinions.” – Hans Speier. What happens if the Scum peddles an Anti-Scots enemy within line?

A FIRST SHEPHERD penning his sheep in the fold for the night was about to shut up a wolf with them, when his Dog perceiving the wolf said:

“Master, how can you expect the sheep to be safe if you admit a wolf into the fold.”

Analysis: A well worn AhDinnaeKen path, but always worth strolling over again. The basic thrust of independence is that it will protect the sovereign people of Scotland from the excesses of Westminster actions.

In this instance, the Wolf represents the Murdoch press. First-Shepherd Salmond has ignored the clearly demonstrated dangers of accepting this Wolf into the fold. How long till the Sun is smearing perceived anti-Scots in the same fashion that it smeared Liverpool fans at Hillsborough as bestial killers?

    Disappointing – I thought you were about to draw an analogy with the supporters at Hillsborought there!!

    Usual excellent stuff othewise though :0)

  2. Disappointing indeed.

    As obvious as it now seems, I never even gave that a thought – and it would have been a far better use of the fable. Doh!

    Thanks for the compliment.

    Regards
