Yes campaign supporters ramp up the ‘meme’ power in the War of Independence Propaganda. Looks like they need some more creative collectivism for the pseuds-Yes campaign.
Am I the only person to notice that you could buy a ‘dream house’ with the £300,000 Firstminster Salmond promised us Skints the other day there?
Has anyone else noticed the similarity between this facile empty fallacious poster by the pseudo-Yes campaign and this empty facile fallacious poster by the Just Say Yes (please) campaign?
I think we should be told.
[Edit: We* got spoofed by the pseuds. Takes hat off and tugs the forelock. Turns oot ye can kid a kidder 🙂 ]
The third of AhDinnaeKen’s semi-regular shameful Sunday slots dedicated to the radical and modern pamphleteers of our age. Ever wondered why certain CyberNationalists can be so offensive? Wonder no more. This series exposes the people they got it from.
Award yourself a Tartan star each time you know the answer.
A: Jim Sillars.
The militant windae brekker and ’90 minute Nationalist’ faither of SNP ‘direct action’ politics lamented the loss of a party with a real tradition of democracy and radical ideas rather than the Blairified party and executive we see now.
He might be mad but he’s not crazy. Tricky Dicky Salmond himself said of Sillars: “no one in recent Scottish politics has had more God-given talent…”. So, despite the look and feel of a mad MacBeth in waiting, Jim knows what he’s talking about when it comes to the pairty.
Weel said Jim. AhDinnaeKen, on impartial observance, is inclined to agree.

A: Former Street tramping, terrorist appeasing and powermongering Injustice Minster, Kenny MacAskill, delivered the speech to SNP conference in 1998 in which he referred to the England football team as the “Great Satan”.
His speech – Great Satan an’ all – gained him the overwhelming support of over two thirds of delegate votes and a standing ovation from ‘ultimate control freak’ Tricky Dicky Salmond himself.
AhDinnaeKen reckons the Great Satan is a phrase we*’ve heard somewhere before. It’s normally associated with flag burners, sectarian extremists and the like, but hey, the Yes campaign has got them in its ranks as well.
Perhaps we* should conduct a ‘Social Audit’ to root them out.
AhDinnaeKen is ashamed to announce a new semi-regular Sunday slot intended to educate and illuminate everyone from the Just say Yes, Naw ya bassas, Oh Ah Dinnae Ken, and I don’t gie a f**k camps of the Neverendum debate. See if you can guess who made the statement in the quotes at the bottom of the poster.
A: Alex Salmond – BBC Radio Scotland People and Power programme (1999)
He may not condone CyberNats, but he doesn’t condemn them either. Good to know what he thinks of Scottish athletes though – “thugs and racists” indeed!
Next time you receive abuse from a CyberNat, it’s worth remembering where they got it from.
Despite the stushie and despite the accusations and counter accusations flying all over the place, AhDinnaeKen would never call the Firstminster a liar. Oh no! He is a Barefaced Liar. And that’s the Freedom of BBC Information truth.

SCOTLAND’S FIRSTMINSTER yesterday denied that his pants had caught fire.
The denial proved to be highly embarrassing as Firewoman Sturgeon attempted to put out the flames with gasoline.
“There’s nothing to see here.” she said. “Labour are just arson around and trying to impugn the anointed one for cheap political points.
“There is no smoke, there is no fire, there are no pants and even if there were pants they wouldn’t have been on fire because I didn’t take legal advice on Ministerial code pants combustion.”
In a recent first strike YooGuv poll, 75 per cent of Scots said they wouldn’t trust the Firstminster if he told them he was untrustable.
Fatcat ex-banker Pantsonfire Salmond said: “I lie to myself and the sovereign people of Scotland all the time. But I never believe me.”
For more than 30 years the SNP have taken a highly principled stance against the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and nuclear umbrella military alliances. Now that there’s a whiff of power to be had come the Neverendum, principles are booted out the door as quickly as the Lib-Dems commitment to Tuition Fees. Hurrah for our would be moral guardians of our new Braveheart Nation.
“A man’s country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle and patriotism is loyalty to that principle.” – George William Curtis. Pity that Wee Eck’s principle of a non-nuclear Scotland is the same as Tony Blair’s principled stance toward peace.
Rumour has it that post conference, Nationalists will no longer be known as Nats. Instead they will be known as Natos. Haw haw!
AhDinnaeKen is ashamed to welcome Lib-Dem ex-Minister for Rent Fiddling and Catamite Keeping back into whatever cabinet post Nicknick Clegger can blag for him: AwInitTheGither?
“There is no kind of dishonesty into which otherwise good people more easily and frequently fall than that of defrauding the government.” – Benjamin Franklin
From Private Eye (Jun 2010) Number Crunching boxout:
£40,000 – Parliamentary expenses wrongly claimed by David Laws, who failed to declare he had been living with a partner since 2001, for which he was described by the Prime Minister as ‘a good and honorable man’.
£42,000 – Housing and other benefits wrongly clamed by Stoke-on-Trent shopworker who failed to declare she had married in 2003 – for which she has just been jailed for 18 months (some mistake surely).
As the country plods ever closer to finding out nothing about nothing concerning the Neverendum vanity project, AhDinnaeKen issues a gentle warning of what has been, what we have now, and what is to come. Oh joy!
The SNP are refusing to release European legal advise information based on principle – The egg on face principle.
With a tip of the forelock, a nod, a wink and a tongue firmly in cheek, AhDinnaeKen would like to dedicate this five minute mocked up poster to Barbarian – a tortuously laboured attempt to answer the serious question he asked on his blog regarding what the mostly disinterested would be voting for in the event of an independence Neverendum.
“As far as the laws of neverendums refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality.” – AhDinnaeKen
What is the point of the Referendum? Barbarian queried. Yes indeed! What is the point of the Referendum?
Answers on a Freedom of Information request form to Sun King Alex of Salmond or to The High Priestess of Prohibition Auld Nick Sturgeon. Don’t expect an answer any time soon.
As the West today celebrates the 67th anniversary of the unleashing of the ‘Little Boy’ Weapon of Mass Destruction on Hiroshima, AhDinnaeKen asks: “Just what mega-tonnage of principle are the SNP prepared to drop in order to gain independence?” and “What will the fallout be for those with any political integrity left?”
“More Unionist than the Unionists” is the new mantra under consideration by the Just Say Yes (please) campaign. Hopefully it will save us from the tedious cliche of “Too Wee, Too Poor, Too Stupid” . God Save our gracious Sun King.
