Here’s why Kevin McKenna just lost my vote

AhDinnaeKen likes auld Kevin McKenna. He’s a universal stalwart of the Scottish media circle and highly entertaining to boot. It’s just a pity he’s such a terrible judge of character. Here’s why he’s lost AhDinnaeKen’s vote of confidence.

RTWingsSalmond

The act of deference to Salmond which signalled Campbell’s future relationship as useful idiot.

By @ergasiophobeborn with the gift of laughter and a sense that the world was mad

OCCASIONALLY, YOU can measure the value of a journalist by the nature of those they are prepared to support in public.

And so it is with the confessions of ‘weel kept’ hack, Kevin McKenna in The National newspaper recently. He thinks that incel snowflake ‘Reverend’ Stuart Campbell’s silly season entry into the world of fantasy electioneering will have a welcome impact in the real world of Scotland’s parochial politics.

As Kevin says, “The analysis of a new Wings party’s prospects of success can wait.” Probably forever.

In the meantime, let’s all just bask in the cartoon belief that Campbell could raise any sort of awareness in the Scottish public beyond the derisory reaction of, “who”?

This was Kevin’s reaction to Campbell some time ago: “he seems to be a bit of a rebel, a buccaneer and a brigand…” (with the emphasis on ‘seems’, this projection is more a reflection of Kevin than Wings)

“He doesn’t retreat and gets into fights with everyone.” (tell that to the block list Kev, a potent symbol of Campbell’s keenness to run away and hide like a “shy wee boy” at the first hint of trouble.)

” Newspapers used to be like that too.” Kev deludes himself.

When I saw this obloquy from Kevin, a wee shard of incredulity pierced my soul. Imagine indulging in this sort of rose tinted projectionism while simultaneously missing the obvious ‘tells’ which point out all the cliches and archetypes of Nationalism which Campbell represents and personifies.

I don’t know if Kevin is a realist but imagine being able to face Jock McAverage, the everyday punter in a Scottish street, and try to convince him/her that Campbell is anything other than a sadsack geeky loner who missed every adult rite of passage as life passed him by in a parallel virtual reality of sixteen bit videogames

“So what makes you think I’d vote for him then sunshine?”

“Well, he’s lived more than half of his babyman bachelorhood life in the heart of the country he claims is occupying Scotland. And he’s a veteran at losing court cases and humiliating himself publicly.”

“Get tae fuck ya tosser, there’s a place for weirdo losers like that. It’s cawed Twitter.”

Campbell is the guy who threatens to knock folks heids in when he’s exposed for blatantly lying ; thinks Liverpool fans are to be blamed for the Hillsborough disaster despite the overwhelming evidence which found otherwise; perjures himself in open court in order to gag the right of gay women to free speech; and “holds others to a higher standard of respect than he is willing himself to adopt.”

If you think this guy is worth supporting then I’d say you’re on the road to a straitjacket.

We can also be entertained by imagining how much urine was discharged when people pished themselves laughing at Campbell’s political ambitions.

This is a guy who’s so ugly that young women when asked the simple question, “do you think he’s good looking?” snort with derision and say, “naw, he’s a fuckin’ minger” (true story, 100% verbatim quote).

According to Kevin, “the Reverend Campbell is the devil incarnate of virtue-signallers everywhere.  He stalks the nightmares of those who carefully monitor the prevailing trends in society…” Which may be true in Twitterland if you change “virtue-signallers” to “women”.

For Campbell has a special reserve of hatred for women. Particularly if they’re attractive, intelligent and outspoken: Kezia Dugdale, Kate Higgins, Clare Lally, Michelle Mone, Ruth Davidson, Angela Haggerty etc. etc.

There’s an endless well of poison held in reserve by Campbell for women like the above. Women whom Campbell could never hope to possess or subjugate to his will.

He once even told Ms Haggerty that his belief in equality gave him the right to assault her if need be. Though I know who I’d be betting on if the two were ever to meet in a boxing ring. Pro-tip, it wouldn’t be the angry babyman of Bath.

But the deepest darkest well. The well that feeds the empty vacuous rage of his incel impotence, is the contemptuous sinister hatred he currently reserves for Kezia Dugdale and his humiliatingly public defeat at the hands of her victory for the right of politicians and everyday citizens to free speech.

As one intelligent switched on pre-grad lawyer recently Skyped: “He’s trying to financially bury her in a hole so that he can get the apology he so desperately craves to get vindication.

“It’s not about the decision. It’s about his need to crush her into nonexistence so he can feed fuel to his cult.”

Campbell’s behaviour re Dugdale is an essential reading of character. It’s a monumental ‘tell’. This behaviour is the mark of raw unhinged misogyny incarnate fuelled by the insanity of insular incel rage externalised.

If Campbell and any other members of his Perjurers Party were to make it to Holyrood via the list system then it’s extremely unlikely that the Indy movement could ever claim to be ‘civic’, ‘progressive’ or ‘joyful’ again.

For then the mask will not so much have slipped as been ripped off by the “unbelievable fury” which drives the worst aspects of any Nationalism – intolerance of the other and the need to destroy them.

Kevin McKenna never mentioned Campbell’s belief that Scotland was “the most gutless country in the world” when he was interviewed by Kenny Farquharson of the Times recently. Nor did Kevin point out another Campbell ‘tell’ when he referred to the people of Scotland as “you people” from his base in England.

Campbell’s party would be a party which would thrive on finger pointing, blaming, othering, threatening, intimidating and damaging every single strand of belief in the indy community which was built up pre-September 2014.

In the face of this, we need fewer maudlin, myopic, insular apologists like McKenna, and the fewer the f***ing merrier.

I can’t believe it’s not “Utter” is getting a new cliche thanks to Humza

Humza QT Pic

“It’s utterly appalling the utter crap the media will dredge up about my utter reliance on utter” uttered Mr Yousaf yesterday.

By Utter Stutterlinguistics and lexiphanic cliche analyst

THE SCOTTISH Parliament’s Justiceminster, Mr Humza Yousaf, angrily attacked “utter media hypocrisy” yesterday in a dispute over cliches which arose after the publishing of a letter in the Dundee Courier.

Letter writer, Jukov Sutherland, had reported that Mr Yousaf’s general utterances were littered with intellectually vacuous statements prefixed by the cliched use of “utter” or “utterly”.

Humza utterly denied this, claiming that it was utterly despicable to pick on his use of utter because, as Justiceminster for the people of his community, he was utterly committed to its everyday use on their behalf.

He said: “I utterly refute this claim.

“It is utterly insulting to my name and displays an utter lack of respect to me, my friends, my family, my pets, my Panini football sticker collection, my community, my politics, my beliefs, my party, my country and anything else which has anything utterly to do with me.

“I will be writing to the leader of the mainstream media party and will make it utterly clear how utterly appalling this insult is coming from an utter bunch of utter nutters.

“I will be expecting several utter resignations following my writing of an utterly outraged letter.

“As Justiceminster for Transport, or something, I utterly condemn this utterly heartbreaking recognition of my utter commitment to vacuous intellectually challenged utter cliches.”

The SNP however utterly backed their Justiceminster’s human right to rely on tediously repetitive cliches:

“Look, we’ve utterly relied on the use of grievance cliches to get where we are today. It’s an utter success story that our utterances even get listened to never mind believed.

“Leave the boy alone, it’s an utter improbability that he’ll get found out any time soon.”

Twitter to be purged of Anti-Scots accounts

FOR TOO long Twitter has been a platform for free expression. This has to stop. Some people might not agree with independence and this has been found to be offensive to true Scots – a beacon for independence thought and humanity. AhDinnaeKen investigates Alyn Smith MEP’s crusade against the forces of independence darkness:

Alyn Smith Twitter

I haff a list of all Anti-Scots Twitter accounts  by geo-location and they can expect a night time visit if they do not desist from their Anti-Scots behaviour said the Europrat (above) yesterday.

By Paw Gromfreedom of speech and politically motivated hostilities detective

TWITTER USERS in Scotland are a “clear target” for fundraising mendicants operated by hostile assimilated Englishmen, a report commissioned by an SNP Europrat has found.

The report estimated that somewhere between 98% and 100% of assimilated English Twitter activity is “positively malign”.

Most of this potentially faux activity centres around independence and the need to raise money to sue women for freely expressed newspaper comments.

But despite this, the report said Scotland’s social media usage remains “largely repetitive”.

The report was carried out by Cosmopolitan Speech Inspector turned investigative censor and author JJ Goebbels.

A new website was also launched to assist ‘verified’ Scots Twitter users to ‘report’ and ‘out’ Anti-Scots Twitter abusers.

What were the conclusions of the investigation?

The report points the finger at those hostile to the Scottish Nationalist Party (SNP).

They are invariably classified as “state hostile yoons and non-state hostile yoons”.

Scotland is a clear target for “Yoons” due to the embedding of the only party which claims to be “Stronger for Scotland” – the SNP.

The report concluded: “Scottish Twitter and Scotland in general does have a problem with ‘Yoons’, both malign and hateful, and the scale of the problem is quantifiable – 55% at the last referendum in 2014.

“This does have some impact on Scottish public discourse and there is too much influence exerted both on and off social media.

“However, Scotland remains largely positive that the Anti-Scots Yoons can be sent back to where they belong – England.”

What will be done about the problem?

The report says “simple changes” can make Twitter a no go zone for Yoons in Scotland and around the world.

These changes will include:

  • Twitter to identify and shut down Yoon accounts. Any profile which displays a Union flag or a ‘Yawn’ badge will be suspended indefinitely and their operators will forfeit 45% of their material goods.
  • Verification of Scots identity via geo-location into three categories: True Scots, Non-Scots and Anti-Scots.
  • Geo-blocking of any and all accounts which do not promote the official “Stronger for Scotland” philosophy of ‘Independence at all costs’.

The report states: “The presence of malign Yoons on the platform will continue as long as social media permits freedom of expression.

“This does impact on public discourse and even influences voting behaviour.

“Independence minded politicians need to lead the debate to discover final solutions, because the question is no longer if Yoons are for real but whether they should be allowed to freely express their reprehensible ideas.”

What has Alyn Smith said about the report?

Mr Smith said there had been moments where his sanctimonious expostulations had not rung true such as his claim to be ‘hard working’ at the European Parliament.

He explained: “Hardly anyone has heard of me and I need to appear relevant.

“I’ve received dozens of Tweets asking who I am and my retort of “ask Nicola” is mostly ignored.

“I do not have enough relevance or points of substance to make, to have an impact politically so, jumping on a conspiracy theory bandwagon with a smidgeon of substance seems the most likely direction to take in order to get a modicum of victimhood attention.”

The Europrat added: “We have to be honest too. By shutting down the Yoons, we can get over the hurdle of currency, EU membership and post independence austerity.

“The hateful Yoons don’t believe us when we say everything will work out fine.

“We’ll never change their minds, so this gives us the chance to shut them up instead.

“Or, at least, that’s what Alex Salmond told me.”

Wings Over Scotland set to ‘block’ Wings Over Scotland “for stupid”

AS VIRTUALLY no one from anywhere in Scotland knows, @Wingsscotland’s Twitter account “blocks for stupid”. AhDinnaeKen reveals why Squealer Campbell, aka “Rev Stu” of Wings Over Scotland, is blocking himself: he’s monumentally stupid. AhDinnaeKen investigates:

By Widye Credititstupidity detector and Nationalist bullshit monitor

SQUEALER CAMPBELL, editor of Wings Over Scotland, has revealed he is set to block himself on Twitter.

The self proclaimed “media monitor” and alleged “professional journalist” discovered he is so monumentally stupid that he has no option other than to block himself and join the “blocklist” of other blocked “stupid” morons.

Squealer squealed: “We’re not remotely expert enough when it comes to the labyrinth of human intelligence to determine how significant our stupidity is.

“But we suspect readers will agree that it would seem an awfully stupid gaffe not to block ourself “for stupid” when we’ve been so demonstrably stupid ourselves.”

The “stupid” epiphany came to Squealer after he re-read one of his own “stupid” blogs entitled ‘The magic money rigs’.

Squealer reported that those English Basturts at HMRC had lied to Scotland to the tune of £15bn in unreported oil revenues.

But, unfortunately for Squealer, he had forgotten his own ‘teachings’ when he squealed:

“one of the primary purposes of this website isn’t just to tell people when the Scottish and UK media is lying to them, but to teach readers how to spot that for themselves. And one of the keys to learning that is to ask yourself what a story in the press is leaving out as well as what it’s telling you.”

Alert readers noted that Squealer illustrated his ‘polemic’ with the screenshot below – taken from the original report.

Wings Oil revenue distortion 01

He squealed: “In just two years, then, Scotland’s economy has suddenly produced over £15bn more than the official UK government figures had previously claimed it did. It’s a bit like popping out to your garage to fetch a screwdriver and discovering a Ferrari you didn’t know you had under a dust sheet.”

Not so alert readers failed to notice that Squealer had deliberately left out the following information from the same report:

Wings Oil revenue distortion

So, not only did Squealer deliberately ignore the purpose of the report, he actively left out the information above for his own Nationalist squealing purpose: the same failing he repeatedly flays the MSM for in his ad nauseum rants.

Now, we’re not remotely expert enough when it comes to the labyrinth of Squealer’s media “genius” to determine how significant that failing is (the ignoring of the conclusion not the simple ease with which it has been exposed). But we suspect readers will agree that it seems an awfully important conclusion to ignore without mentioning it, or having anyone else notice.

And, having noticed, it’s incredibly difficult not to conclude that Squealer Campbell must be incredibly stupid to think he could get away with ignoring his own teachings while pulling a fast one over his stupid followers.

But, as an expert German propagandist once said: “stupidity is the deliberate cultivation of ignorance.”

Squealer Campbell has cultivated that in abundance. Expect him to block himself “for stupid” anytime soon.

Exclusive: Wings Over Scotland’s lies to readers of The National exposed

WINGS OVER Scotland boasted recently to have more readers online than the Daily Record, Scottish Sun, The Scotsman, The Herald or the Scottish Daily Express. He made this astonishing unsubstantiated claim in ‘The National’ newspaper. AhDinnaeKen said “haud oan a minute, surely The National are putting their reputation at risk by publishing such falsehoods.” We hope, after reading our exclusive exposure they’ll correct the glaring error:

Campbell quote re Readership

The inference is clear. Wings expects you to believe that his site was part of the National Readership Survey 2016. Oh dear!

By Longshanker aka @ergasiophobe

STUART CAMPBELL of alternative facts website, Wings Over Scotland, was today, yet again, exposed as a cynically manipulative liar

In Friday’s The National newspaper, Campbell claimed that his website had more readers online every month than the Daily Record, Scottish Sun, The Scotsman, The Herald or the Scottish Daily Express.

The claim proved to be an astonishing barefaced lie.

We were taken aback that The National was prepared to appear to support such an easily corroborated false assertion.

In a piece entitled “What do we do about Scotland’s Unionist media in the #ScotRef campaign? We bypass them”, Campbell used a weasel worded sentence to give the impression that his site was part of the National Readership Survey of 2016.

He said: “According to figures recently released by the National Readership Survey for 2016, my own site Wings Over Scotland – has more readers online every month than the Daily Record, Scottish Sun, The Scotsman, The Herald or the Scottish Daily Express, which is an astonishing statistic…”

But it wasn’t an “astonishing statistic”. It was an “astonishing lie” intended to give an “astonishing” false impression of Wings reach and influence.

The National Readership Survey is a sophisticated operation funded by News Media Association (Newspapers), Professional Publishers Association (Magazines) and the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising (Advertisers).

The survey is conducted independently by IPSOS Mori and partners. It provides solid market information from which all three subscriber members base commercial strategies for the future.

The survey provides no information on “new media” Scottish political websites.

So quite what Campbell thought he was playing at by making such an amateurish, easily rebutted, claim is the question The National should be asking.

May 2016 Readership figures

Make allowance for number of browsers used, privacy settings, number of devices, crawler bots, DDOS attacks etc and “unique readers” is more likely to hit the 30 – 50,000 mark: if that. A considerable mark down from the claim above.

According to Campbell’s figures from May 2016, Wings Over Scotland had “381,977 unique readers”. But these are based on Google Analytics figures where Campbell’s use of the word “readers” is misleading. What he should have stuck to was “unique users” or the even more accurate “unique browsers”.

Contrast and compare with the table below, taken from a Press Gazette report on the National Readership Survey 2016.

Prss Gzette Updated Sep 2016

We wonder what lie Campbell will cook up to explain this embarrassing exposure. More importantly, will The National print a correction? Watch this space.

 

 

As can clearly be seen – the figures provided are in thousands – The Scotsman is read by 412,00 readers online and 729,000 on mobile: The Daily Record does better with 588,000 readers online and 3,650,000 readers on mobile.

Given that Campbell’s claimed figure of 381,977 is the highest he can provide – with the caveat that they’re dubious and mostly meaningless – it’s easy to conclude that the assertion made by him having more readers than the named papers is a lie.

Quite why he would run with such an easily disproved lie in a national/regional newspaper is the question The National should be asking.

AhDinnaeKen readers will no doubt come to their own conclusions.

Meanwhile, fire extinguishers for spontaneously combusting pants are available on EBay for Campbell.

12 Things You Didn’t Need to Know About @WangsScotland’s ‘Reverend’ Stuart Campbell

WANGS OVER Scotland bigmouth and editor ‘Reverend’ Stuart Campbell became the first to take part in a fawningly embarrassing series in CommonSpace recently. Campbell is an honest kid. He’s so honest it’s untrue. Here’s what he said ‘off the record’ when the right-on mostly ignored lefties of Commonspace had had their anodyne way with him:

"If there was one thing worse than being cheated, it was being cheated by someone who referred to themselves in the third person." ― Chris Wooding, The Iron Jackal

“If there was one thing worse than being cheated, it was being cheated by someone who referred to themselves in the third person.” ― Chris Wooding, The Iron Jackal

By Sicko PhantOfficial suck up and public relations etymologist

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

We wanted to be like normal children, you know with brothers and sisters and subservient friends with lots of dinner money to play with. But the other kids were all cunts and didn’t want to play with us after we quite reasonably pointed out our empirically researched, cited and referenced facts of why they were all cunts. People are so stupid and ungrateful when presented with the truth.

After our mother had had us, she said “no more, truly this boy is the Second Coming. Let him go forth and purify the earth – or Bathgate at least – of fuckwits, retards, cunts, morons, dickheads, arseholes, thickos and really really stupid people.

And that has been our mission in life since. You wouldn’t believe the amount of people out there who actually have the gall and arrogance to disagree and argue with us.

Who is your hero and why?

Stuart Campbell. Because he murdered that kid, meaning we got the great idea to call ourselves Reverend in the 90s. At least, that’s the story we’re sticking to.

What’s your favourite song?

‘You’re going to get your fucking head kicked in’ as sung on the terraces during our armchair football supporting days. We regularly sang it to all the primary school kids who dared contradict our choice of best pocketeer games in the eighties. Acting on the message of the lyrics soon made them see the error of their ways.

What are you scared of?

Fuck all! But if we were scared of anything, it would be getting found out and exposed for our hypocrisy. Take our public pronouncements over being unashamed of anything we’ve ever written – and then having to delete the guff we wrote about our tragically unsuccessful attempt at taking Future Publishing to the cleaners for ripping off our copyrighted material. Embarrassing or what? And then that thick cunt Longshanker dug up our claim that we had worked with “rape victims”. He plundered our old World of Stuart forum – which we were so proud of – so we had to close it down so no other fuckwit could read it because we were so unashamed of it.

Which is better: Stuart Campbell or Reverend Stuart Campbell or Wings Over Scotland or Edge of Heaven or Darius Burst or Hoots McCrivvens?

Any of the above except Darius Burst and Edge of Heaven and Hoots McCrivvens – Natch!; they represent our dark side where we were so stupid, technically illiterate and overbearingly arrogant that we got caught impersonating others through our IP address. Still, we never learn. Ask the Wikipedia editors and their cock editors who don’t believe in Fairplay – fucking Nazis!

Which is better: Throwing your toys out of the pram or acting like a crybaby?

It depends on context. Throwing your toys out of the pram is good and proper when cretinous thicko retards like K**** H**** and K*** H****ns appear on telly or start jobs working with the Scottish Government. Acting like a crybaby is better when democratic votes in parliament don’t go the way we wants them to. Why wouldn’t you want to burn down Holyrood? It’s half full of fucking unionists anyway.

You’re on a desert island, you can take one person, one book and one type of food. Who would you take, which book and which food?

You’re just trying to get us to tell you what we get up to with the sepa-rats aren’t you? NICE TRY FUCKWITS!

The best book ever written, and the one we’ve read most often, is the Wee Blue Book, but it would be a bit boring and irrelevant for an independent desert island so we’d probably go for Mein Kampf – something with depth, relevance and the odd touch of humour, not to mention searing insight into how to deal with the so called Mainstream Media and Unionists. Pro-tip: they’re not called Unionists in Mein Kampf.

And Jelly Babies, of course. As long as they’ve had their heads kicked in in the manner we likes.

When have you been wrong about something?

Would you like a list?

What really makes you angry?

Liars. Almost everything we’ve done with our life has been based on lies, embellishment of lies and lying falsehood. From pretending to be other people, to claiming other people are other people, to claiming unique users as unique readers, we are the liars liar. Most liars are only half hearted about it because they don’t have the commitment to believe their own lies. We knows our lies are the truth. And that’s a lie.

What really makes you happy?

Millions of things. Popping stupid kids ‘No Thanks’ balloons is a goer. Telling people to fuck off on Twitter. Killing things in virtual reality or real virtuality (we gets the two mixed up all the time). Getting switched off and back on again. Flirting with homosexuals because we are most definitely not fucking homosexuals. Swearing like a man. Castigating limp wristed swearers who block their f***ing swearing with asterisks.

I’m pretty much happy at anything which causes fuckwits and thickos any modicum of discomfort.

If you could spend an hour with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be and what would you ask them?

Charlene Tilton of Dallas fame. We thinks she is undeserving of the term “poison dwarf”. We believes we are the true heirs to that crown. We would wear “poison dwarf” with pride. We are the most poisonous dwarf this side of The Circus in Bath.

If you met David Cameron today what would you say to him?

You might have been adventurous with a dead pig. You don’t even know you’ve lived until you’ve tried it with a live rat.

SNP knew Mackay would crack and fail due to stress

FORTH ROAD Bridge engineers considered replacing the part of the Scottish transport department which failed dismally to perform this week. AhDinnaeKen reports:

 "Sometimes when people are under stress, they hate to think, and it's the time when they most need to think." - William J. Clinton. Unfortunately for the country's economy, Derek Mackay was not "Stronger for Scotland."

“Sometimes when people are under stress, they hate to think, and it’s the time when they most need to think.” – William J. Clinton. Unfortunately for the country’s economy, Derek Mackay did not think and was not “Stronger for Scotland.”

By Truss JointCivil engineering and ministerial expert

ENGINEERS WORKING on Transportminster Derek Mackay have revealed how they plan to fix his career which cracked on Good Morning Scotland on Wednesday forcing him to reveal the truth about the Forth Road Bridge closure.

It’s believed to involve a “face saving repair” around his radio performance which failed dismally to cover up the SNP government’s budgetary gamble with the country’s economy.

A media access platform is being built around the broken minister but, given his failed admission of truth to the BBC’s Gary Robertson on Wednesday, experts say his career is beyond repair.

Firstminster Nicola Sturgeon told MSPs that her “absolute intention” was to deflect all blame on to Mackay in case any of the finger pointing should fall in her direction.

Ms Sturgeon pointed out that the transportminster was “more than 38 years old, he’s been carrying more responsibility than he was designed for by way of ability and competence.”

She insisted: “This problem with Mackay was not predicted for the radio appearance in which he cracked, but we are trying desperately to remedy it, we are fixing it and we will get another fallguy in place before the new Forth crossing is due to open next year.”

Scottish Labour Opportunists deputy leader Alex Rowley said: “It was predicted as far back as 2010 that Derek Mackay would develop a fault.

“We need a full parliamentary inquiry into what has gone wrong with Mackay.

“For an SNP Minister to admit that he lied to parliament, while revealing it to the BBC on the radio, shows there has been too much strain put on his ministerial performance and now he has broken.

“There needs to be a full replacement of the transportminster section of the SNP government.”
