Exclusive: Scotland in danger from new strain of fact-resistant humans

NEW RESEARCH exposes dangerous fact immune virus currently sweeping through Scotland:

"Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity." - Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

SCOTLAND: Social scientists have discovered a powerful new strain of fact resistant humans who are threatening the ability of the country to tolerate political opposition, according to a new academic study.

Research conducted by the University of the West of Scotland (UWS) has identified a virulent strain of ‘MacUber-humans’ who are virtually immune to any form of non-Nationalist rhetoric.

This new strain, also known as ‘Bravehearts’, ‘Flag Drapers’, ‘Wangers’ or ‘SNP Card Carrying Members’, are notable by their high information, low comprehension habits and their ability to regurgitate Nationalist propaganda at the mention of the BBC.

According to Professor Gerry Hassan of UWS, “These fact resistant humans appear to have all the faculties necessary to receive and process information. And yet they have developed groupthink defenses which, for all intents and purpose, have rendered those faculties completely redundant.”

More worryingly, Hassan said, “As Nationalist rhetoric gets ever more exposed for the threadbare sham that it is, their defenses against political reality have only grown more resistant and belligerent.”

While the research bods have no clear explanation for the phenomenon, one theory currently gaining ground is that the strain may have developed an ‘anti-Scottishness’ filter which protects them from inconvenient information disseminated against their country.

“The normal functions of political discourse and debate have been completely nullified and we are facing an epidemic of people immune to their country being talked down,” Hassan said.

Despite the gloomy outlook, Hassan held out hope that the threat of the MacUber-humans could be mitigated in the future. “The research is in the preliminary stages, but it’s possible they will become more receptive to facts once they are in an environment without food, public services or giro-cheques – also known as Full Fiscal Autonomy Scotland,” he said.

Wings, Lies, and Christina McKelvie MSP

CHRISTINA MCKELVIE SNP MSP nailed her colours to the mast of “oddball-in-chief”, Stuart Campbell of Wings Over Scotland, last night, prompting AhDinnaeKen to ask, is this the calibre of MSP we’re going to have to tolerate from the Nationalist Holyrood parliament for evermore?

There seems to be some factionalising over Wings in the SNP at the moment. Salmondites are wholeheartedly recommending the site. Sturgeonites are much more circumspect. Funny that.

IT’S A well known maxim of propaganda that propagandists frequently exploit truths useful to their cause and airbrush over or omit those truths which, inconveniently, are not so helpful.

It’s why the best propaganda is mostly true but, due to its nature and purpose, can never quite be the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

In that spirit of propagandising, it’s easy to conclude that the best you’ll ever get with the Wings Over Scotland blog is: not quite the truth.

Take the subject of a recent Twitter exchange between SNP MSP Christina McKelvie and Labour MSP Neil Findlay. It concerned a comment made by Jim Murphy MP during the BBC’s leader debates first screened on 8th April.

Murphy claimed that the SNP had voted with the Tories in order to stymy some Labour amendments to the Welfare Funds (Scotland) Bill. The amendments proposed that, where appropriate, Councils should provide eligible claimants with “cash” payments instead of “vouchers” in order to avoid stigma.

In reference to the SNP/Tory vote Murphy said:

“Labour said let’s give them cash payments. The SNP sided with the Tories to give them vouchers.”

Cue much wailing and gnashing of teeth from FM Nicola Sturgeon and an attempt to divert away from the specific claim made by Murphy.

She categorically failed to rebut Murphy’s allegation and managed to make his sanctimonious politicking seem all the more poignant – much to the pleasure of the clapping audience.

In the Twitter echo chamber meanwhile, @WingsScotland tweeted a reference to a Wings propaganda blog entitled “This is how you tell a lie”.

It allegedly “debunks” the Murphy claim that the SNP voted with the Tories. Like Sturgeon’s attempt at the rebuttal of Jim’s point, it also categorically failed.

The essential allegation driving Campbell’s self righteous finger wagging is that Labour’s proposed amendments sought to “remove councils’ flexibility to decide in what form to give the help, by having the Scottish Government impose rules forcing councils to give such help in cash only.”

Like most of Campbell’s propaganda, it’s less than half true. And in anyone’s language, a half-truth is a whole lie.

Campbell’s lie cyncially exploits his readers credulousness and propensity to swallow his narrative wholesale and without question. (So no change there then.)

If Labour’s proposed amendments had been added, the relevant sections in the Welfare Funds Bill would have read as follows:

2 Use of welfare funds: assistance for short term need and community care

(1) A local authority may use its welfare fund only in order to provide occasional financial assistance to or in such circumstances as may be prescribed in regulations under subsection (3A), other assistance—

(a) meeting, or helping to meet, an immediate short term need—

(i) arising out of an exceptional event or exceptional circumstances, and

(ii) that requires to be met to avoid a risk to the wellbeing of an individual, or

Subsection 3A referred to above would have completely replaced the original subsection 3 and have read thus:

(3A) The Scottish Ministers may, by regulations, make provision about the circumstances in which a local authority may —

(a) provide goods or services to or in respect of an individual, or

(b) make a payment to a third party with a view to the third party providing, or
arranging the provision of, goods or services to or in respect of an individual.

Scrutiny reveals that Campbell’s false accusation of the amendments allowing the Scottish Government to ‘force councils’ to provide assistance in “cash only” is a plain and simple untruth.

Ken McIntosh, the Labour proposer of the amendments, put it in a simpler manner that even Campbell should have understood.

McIntosh said:

“…local authorities are not restricted in any way in how they decide to support the applicant; they can do so through an award of goods, vouchers or whatever type of in-kind payment they choose, rather than in cash. The effect of the three amendments in the group would not be to change or restrict that range of options, but would simply be to give ministers the authority to produce regulations about the circumstances in which councils can make non-cash awards.”

A plain and simple explanation in anyone’s world, except perhaps Campbell’s, his “alert readers” and his increasing cohort of SNP MPs and MSP backers.

Which brings us back to Christina McKelvie MSP and Neil Findlay MSP.

It’s a bit rich that Christina should be calling anyone a liar given that she campaigned and appeared on the same platform as convicted serial liar and perjurer Tommy Sheridan during the indyref.

McKelvie not only called Murphy and Neil Findlay liars she then compounded her lie by referring to Stuart Campbell’s rant against Labour as the “truth.”

In Chris Deerin’s recent leftfield polemic about Scotland losin’ the heid, he said the following of the cybernats:

“If anyone on social media – especially, God forbid, a non-Scot – dares to challenge these ludicrous myths they are descended on by the ‘cybernats’, a swarm of angry oddballs who refuse to read the ‘mainstream media’ and who take their lead from the oddball-in-chief, Stuart Campbell, a self-styled Reverend who lives in Bath and runs a ranting website called Wings Over Scotland.”

It’s a sad day when an elected representative of the Scottish people like Christina McKelvie MSP, takes the lead of a fallacious “ranting” liar like Campbell and acts like a ranting cybernat herself. Especially when, like Campbell, she got it so spectacularly wrong. It’s almost as if she has no awareness or worse, cares less, about how her error stricken endorsement of a Nationalist Front extremist like Campbell appears to the world.

The SNP did vote with the Tories to defeat the more humanitarian appearing Labour amendments.

Campbell either deliberately ignored the purpose of the amendments or failed to understand them. Otherwise, how could he possibly interpret them as an attempt by Ken McIntosh to have the Scottish Government impose “cash only” rules on councils?

Christina McKelvie needs to clarify what’s “true” about that claim by Cambpell. If she doesn’t then there’s only one conclusion that can be reached – she’s a liar herself.

This is part of the list of the SNP MSPs who voted with their Tory chums against Labour's more humanitarian amendment. Truth hurts.

This is part of the list of the SNP MSPs who voted with their Tory chums against Labour’s more humanitarian amendment. Christina is directly below her Tory ally Jamie McGrigor. Complaints about Christina should be lodged in green crayola crayon to Oddball In Chief, Wings Over Scotlandland.

Wings Over Scotland: An absence of f**king irony

INDEPENDENCE CAMPAIGNER to be and hate-preaching guardian of the Nationalist Front psyche, Stuart Campbell of Wings Over Scotland, was lamenting the acrimonious side to the indy debate yesterday. In an irony free blog post covering the progress of current referendum discourse, the alleged Reverend discussed the treatment of the Weirs – the SNP’s largest donators to the cause. AhDinnaeKen investigates:

It was reported in Edinburgh that James MacKenzie and Calum Cashley spontaneously combusted yesterday upon such joyous news.

It was reported in Edinburgh yesterday that James MacKenzie, Calum Cashley and Euan McColm spontaneously combusted  upon hearing the joyous news.

By Longshanker aka @ergasiophobe

DIMINUTIVE DEMAGOGUE, wee Stuarty Campbell was in reflective mood yesterday.

The tone of the referendum’s discourse has taken a turn for the worse and he “reluctantly” chose to talk about “the odious and hateful side of the independence debate“.

Leaving aside that this is like a skunk complaining about bad smells in the environment, the ‘wee’ man reflected on the issue in a blog entitled ‘An absence of Respect‘.

It covered the abuse the Nationalist campaign’s largest donators, the Weirs, have suffered at the hands of the SNP’s opponents and, in particular, gorgeous George Galloway – the reason behind the capitalisation of the R in Respect.

In this instance, the Nationalist Front Ranter had a point, of sorts.

It’s unfortunate for Better Together’s motley crew that the Weirs won so much money, but that’s life. Get ower it! There’s no point in whinging about it. It just makes the whingers look and sound sour and gives self appointed proselytising pontiffs like Campbell the chance to act as if they were possessed of some kind of moral superiority.

Regular readers will know that AhDinnaeKen frequently refers to the Laird Wilcox Extremist Traits list to help point out Campbell’s varying forms of extremism.

Aside from numbers 1 and 2 – which are the most tediously obvious and commonly demonstrated Campbell/Wings traits – ‘An absence of Respect‘ demonstrates trait numbers: 5) ADVOCACY OF DOUBLE STANDARDS, 6) TENDENCY TO VIEW THEIR OPPONENTS AND CRITICS AS ESSENTIALLY EVIL and 7) MANICHAEAN WORLDVIEW.

So far, so stereotypical.

AhDinnaeKen’s chuckles of incredulity were amplified by this moralising statement in the blog: “Independence campaigners should expect an endless, rancid vomit-slick of this sort of provocation in the next four months.

Ironically, independence campaigners don’t have to wait, Campbell delivered it to their Twitter feed a long time ago and he’s still pumping it out from his rat infested bedsit.

The following is a flavour of the type of ‘progressive‘ and ‘civic‘ campaigning indy-ref voters/campaigners can expect from a soon to be ‘official‘ campaigner for the Yes side:

In a recent Scotsman article Lesley Riddoch said: "The way people are heard and treated today creates either confidence or doubt about the future."  I wonder what Wings supporting Lesley would think about being called a hypocrite.

Was the Daily Mail too fair on the Cybernats?

AhDinnaeKen is no fan of the Daily Mail. But first and foremost it is a newspaper driven by the agenda of its readers. It reports stories – like every newspaper does. Yesterday it told a story about abusive Cybernats. As with any tabloid styled story, it contained an element of hyperbole. It’s part of the modus operandi of popular newspapers. It’s what keeps readers interested and reading to the end. We* found the Mail feature entitled ‘Cybernats Unmasked’ to be temperate to the point of sanguinity. Which forces AhDinnaeKen to ask the question – just why are all those Cybernats highlighted by the story bleating so much? Will an indy Scotland be a Crybaby Nation full of grieving victims? AhDinnaeKen investigates the Daily Mail version of “social justice”:

"The greatest humiliation in life, is to work hard on something from which you expect great appreciation, and then fail to get it." - E. W. Howe. Well done on all that hard poisonous work Cybernats. Shame about the Daily Mail, eh?

“The greatest humiliation in life, is to work hard on something from which you expect great appreciation, and then fail to get it.” – E. W. Howe. Well done on all that hard poisonous work Cybernats. Shame about the Daily Mail, eh?

By Ahmstill Laffin

THE DAILY Mail chose to expose some alleged Cybernats yesterday.

It was a double page feature introduced by a headline screamer.

Tagged as an “Exclusive”, it highlighted seven Cybernats famous/infamous for their varying independence invective on Twitter and the internet.

By the standards of some of the venom aimed at opponents or sceptics of Indy, the piece was balanced, fair, informative and temperate.

Not that you’d think so judging by the reaction to it.

One of the alleged Cybernats, Melissa Murray aka @meljomur is threatening to sue the Daily Mail for stalking and harrassment.

Of course, this isn't abusive commentary, it's fair debate.

Of course, this isn’t abusive commentary, it’s fair comment. Allegedly.

AhDinnaeKen says, good luck with that Mel, we could do with the laugh – in the public interest of course.

Another exposed Cybernat, ‘Reverend’ Jedi Wingsy Campbell wrote a whole blog about it. Entitled, “The Bully Pulpit“, the author allegedly used “trenchant insights” to “forensically” tear it to pieces.

From where we*’re standing, it read like a page out of the Wingnuts Over Scotland manual on how to write a hate preaching blog. Y’know, for Cybernats like himself and the others featured in the Daily Mail.

Consider the following two paragraphs from the whinging Bully Pulpit blog: [Italics for the Daily Mail, Bold Italics for Wingsy]

“But what marks out the cybernats is their modus operandi: from their disparate locations around the country, on smartphones, laptops and desktop computers in lonely bedrooms, they operate almost as one homogenous body.

There are central figures who spur on or co-ordinate this activity, binding them together and providing inspiration and moral support.”

To which Wingsy said:

Intriguing phrasing there. The “or” in the second sentence is a classic weasel word. It’s a bit like saying “All supporters of Partick Thistle enjoy football or abusing children” – it creates a negative impression while not actually being defamatory, because the “or” means that no one individual is actually being accused of paedophilia.

Which is “intriguing phrasing” itself. Consider this sentence written by ‘Reverend’ Jedi Wingsy Campbell aimed at AhDinnaeKen in a Wingnuts piece entitled “The Personal Touch“:

…there is no doubt whatsoever the author of the blog responsible for the “dossier” is Murray Brady, or someone acting as a front for him.”

Hmm. AhDinnaeKen says, let’s take a look at that “intriguing phrasing” and consider again, what the use of “or” is for!

That’s right. According to Wingsy, it’s a “classic weasel word” – a bit like saying “All supporters of Partick Thistle enjoy football or abusing children” – it creates a negative impression while not actually being defamatory”.

But it’s only a “weasel word”, apparently, when used by the Dail Mail.

When it’s used by Wingsy it’s “robust polemic” or “trenchant insight” or “forensic analysis” or “professional journalism” or “tribune journalism”. But definitely not a “cowardly disclaimer” or “weasel word”. That accolade is exclusively reserved for the Daily Mail in Wingsy’s world.

To call it Cybernat poison or hate preaching doublespeak would interfere with Wingsy’s victim narrative. Which is always worth remembering when reading anything written by the self styled ‘Reverend’.

The Daily Mail said that Wingsy's blog had "grown into something of a cult" . Can't imagine why.

The Daily Mail said that Wingsy’s blog had “grown into something of a cult” . Can’t imagine why.

The Mail feature further highlighted another five Cybernats. It exposed their background and highlighted their typical modus operandi which, reading between the lines, is that they probably have too much time on their hands or they’re bored.

Andy Ellis who tweets as @ndls61 was one of the five named. It stated that he is a commercial manager for Hewlett Packard.

A recent BBC (biased against indy) report stated that Hewlett Packard was suffering from “falling sales”.

It begs the question, is it coincidence or magic that @ndls61 is a commerical manager there? Maybe he should be spending less time tweeting and more time on his day job.

@Leasky has to be one of the most tolerant pro-journos out there. Even he can't stomach Mr Ellis.

@Leasky has to be one of the most tolerant pro-journos out there. Even he can’t stomach Mr Ellis.

In all, AhDinnaeKen found the Mail piece to be fair and balanced. It stated on at least a couple of occasions that there is abuse on both sides of the Indy debate.

It gave each of the named individuals the opportunity to defend themselves from the claim that they were poisonous cybernats.

And it printed their replies.

It also stated that the exposed individuals were, in general, more moderate in person than their online personas suggest – with the possible exception of ‘Reverend’ Jedi Wingsy Campbell whom it nailed with this excellent observation:

“On his website, he tells his acolytes: ‘they’ll [undecided voters] be hungry for more truth, and then you can send them our way.’

“The self-aggrandising ‘our’, of course, is slightly misleading, as Wings is more or less a one-man outfit, though he does sometimes commission and publish proindependence submissions.

“A self-publicist of the first order, Wings often boasts about his growing profile and Community Safety Minister Roseanna Cunningham is one of his Twitter correspondents.

Now that’s what we* call true professional journalism.

The Daily Mail, in general, isn’t AhDinnaeKen’s paper of choice. But there’s no denying that it put the cybernats to the sword with its weekend feature and did so fairly and squarely.

The feature was all the more damning because it was written in a textbook professional and balanced manner.

Anyone who thinks it wasn’t needs to go back to media studies classes.

Take heed ‘Reverend’. And your cultish coterie of Cybernats.

Graham Grant of the Daily Mail gave you an abject lesson in ‘professional journalism’.

It just seems a pity that Mr Grant’s efforts have fallen on cloth ears – from the Cybernat camp at least.

AhDinnaeKen’s still laughing.

Open letter to Roseanna Cunningham regarding Threatening Communication

An open letter to Minister for Community Safety and Legal Affairs Roseanna Cunningham requesting that she clarify what the remit of ‘Community Safety and Legal Affairs’ actually is. Her Twitter conduct appears to have rendered it meaningless.

Birds of a feather flock together?

By Longshankerbeing serious for a change

Dear Ms Cunningham (@strathearnrose)

I write this open letter to you to highlight a few instances of your recent Twitter behaviour and its potential public interest consequences.

I find your recent actions objectionable to the point of abhorrence given that you currently hold the position of  Junior Minister for Community Safety in the Scottish Government.

It concerns your apparent patronage of a website and Twitter account known as Wings Over Scotland edited by an individual calling himself Rev Stuart Campbell.

I notice that your Twitter feed does not display any disclaimers regarding the legitimacy or endorsement of your Retweets or correspondence and therefore conclude that you fully support this individual and the extreme views that he holds.

While I understand that you do not have the time to be aware of all of this individual’s postings, I believe it should be incumbent upon someone in your position to err on the side of caution regarding whom you are prepared to be seen publicly endorsing.

For your background information, Stuart Campbell first came to the wider public’s attention in October and November 1993 for dishonouring and insulting Britain’s war dead, war veterans and the institution responsible for remembrance and veteran support; The Royal British Legion.

As an acting editor of a computer game magazine called Amiga Power, Mr Campbell wrote: “Old soldiers I wish them all dead” and further compounded the outrage by disparagingly referring to the Royal British Legion as “conscientious objectors”.

The details surrounding the incident and the disrespectful use of the poppy image were covered by the Daily Star and earned Mr Campbell the condemnation of Menzies Campbell MP, the Royal British Legion and Viscount Montgomery of Alamein – the son of Field Marshall Montgomery himself. Hardly a knee-jerk reaction troika, I’m sure you would agree.

That he has a problem with soldiers is clear. A recent mocked up poster of a funeral entourage passing through Royal Wootton Bassett used an image which, as was pointed out to him by concerned Twitter users, could be used to identify the service personnel.

Despite it being spelled out to him how potentially upsetting and grievous this could be to relatives of the dead service personnel, he refused in the most repugnant manner possible to use another image. It led to condemnation of the image by both Lib-Dem leader Willie Rennie and the Sun newspaper.

Much more recently, and ironically –  given your ministerial remit and recently introduced legislation – Mr Campbell frequently baits Rangers fans through the medium of his Twitter account and his website.

I find it hard to accept, given that you freely converse with him, Retweet his tweets and ‘follow’ his Twitter timeline, that you could not have been unaware of this anti-social borderline sectarian behaviour.

While he may fall short of actual sectarianism – though that is debatable – the motivation behind his insulting and disparaging bigoted language is clearly designed to anger and humiliate those Rangers fans he engages with. He hoped someone “would die in a chemical fire” recently due to a spat concerning a Rangers fan and a Falkirk announcer.

Given that you have recently stated: “Hatred of any kind has no place in modern Scotland and we need to do everything we can to stop it wherever and whenever it occurs, whilst tackling the root causes.” I find it staggering that you could maintain contact and actively encourage such an individual using the term “good work” as you did yesterday. It is the reason for this open letter.

Finally, I will post some of this individual’s more illustrious posts to give you a flavour of his ethos and outlook and leave it to you to decide whether it is advisable for a Junior Minister in the Scottish Government to be seen endorsing, encouraging and supporting such people.

Yours sincerely
Longshanker
Editor of AhDinnaeKen

Some evidence from the Twitter timeline followed by Roseanna Cunningham

Presumably Mr Campbell’s evidence belongs in the same dark recess as the Scottish version of the Sunday Times.

Note that Mr Campbell’s offensiveness is all the more repugnant given that he hides behind inference so that he can deny he ever said anything concrete which could be construed as bigoted or sectarian. The BNP do the same thing incidentally. Coincidence or magic?

“Hate hurts the hater more than the hated.” ― Madeleine L’Engle

Resepected and passionate SNP supporter and campaigner Kate Higgins recently referred to Mr Campbell as a “misogynist” due to his abusive, bullying and threatening use of language. Unsurprisingly, Mr Campbell has frequently referred to Ms Higgins as an “idiot”.

“Bigotry or prejudice in any form is more than a problem; it is a deep-seated evil within our society.” – Judith Light. Ironic that someone who actively helped steer legislation to fight bigotry should also actively support someone who espouses it at almost every turn.

AhDinnaeKen wonders if “fighting the root cause” of bigotry involves actively Retweeting and recommending articles written by the bigots. A question Ms Cunningham should seriously ponder.

“You tend to be afraid when someone seems foreign to you. But if you aren’t careful, that can lead to bigotry.” – Jasmine Guy. Supreme act of carelessness from Mr Campbell there.

Mr Campbell wrote on his Wings Over Scotland site in 2010 that legitimate Northern Irish voters who voted for Sinn Fein were “spectacularly retarded”.  Is this the kind of person whom Scottish Government ministers should be seen endorsing? AhDinnaeKen thinks we should be told.

“All the war-propaganda, all the screaming and lies and hatred, comes invariably from people who are not fighting.” – George Orwell. What pathology possesses such vitriolic hatred? Should it be encouraged by Scottish Government ministers?

Will Roseanna Cunningham, for the sake of clarity, tell the public why this kind of behaviour should not attract the attention of her Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications Bill? This isn’t the first time that Mr Campbell has wished people dead in a chemical fire yet he still considers himself a ‘progressive’ independence’ supporter and is “chuffed” to be referred to as an “Ultimate Cybernat”. Still, that’s a story for another day.

Surely the strapline on the Wings  Twitter account should warn you to be careful regarding this individual’s toxicity?

AhDinnaeKen would like to apologise to any readers expecting regular Sunday feature MacAesop’s fables.

First Gauleiter: BBC will get what it deserves post independence

Potential faither o’ the proud Picto-Scotti Nation of Dal Riata Alba Caledonia unveils nightmare vision of show trials and public humiliation for anti-Scottish BBC employees.

“By the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one can make a people see even heaven as hell or an extremely wretched life as paradise.” – Adolf Hitler. So! Cybernats! Go back to your constituencies and prepare for paradise.

By Propah Ghander

FIRST GAULEITER Sun King Alex of Salmond yesterday vowed the BBC will get what it deserves should Scotland separate from the UK.

He said he will land grab existing BBC assets and staff and apply a newly formulated “porridge test”.

The test, designed to weed out the anti-Scots element currently infecting the British Brainwashing Corporation, will be applied in the court of nationalist opinion and televised nationwide.

A title for the new show trial programme is expected to be called “Better Bot than anti-Scot” or “Careless broadcasting costs votes.”

Those who pass will continue to work in broadcasting, those who don’t will not be heard from again.

The Firstminster also promised to reveal more details on how a new station would operate.

He said: “Scotland and its sovereign people will have a real opportunity to benefit from the three Wee Eckian principles of Misinform, Boretodeath and Dumbdoon.”

Popular Beeb shows such as Deadenders, The Voiceless and Strictly Wear Tartan would stay on Scottish TV.

But Shadowy Machine Politician Margaret Current said: “Because of the weight of evidence that the British Bourgeoise Corporation is fervently anti-Murdoch, Wee Eck wants to open the deferential door to MacFox television.

“The Cybernats and associated rockets will love it, but for everyone else there’s only so much tartan, shortbreid, fffrrrrreeeeeeddddddoooooommmmmm™ and Wee Eck’s coupon on the telly you can take.

“The Labouring Party’s decision to push the BBC out of London has ensured an anti-Nationalist biased propaganda output by over 100 TV companies in Scotland and 15,000 people employed in exposing SNP pishtalk. Now that’s what I call broadcasting.”

SNP Spokesperson of non-denominational multi-cultural trans-gender Wee Naebudy said: “The SNP are an inclusive and progressive party. If you fail the ‘porridge test’ you will not be included and will definitely be progressed.”

At last! Scotland agrees on one question

It’s taken for ever. It’s bored everyone but the Uber nerds and Cybernats to tears. It’s taken its toll of the methadone community in record numbers. Finally the sovereign people of Scotland have decided on their single question. Zzzzz!

An agreement cannot be the result of an imposition said Sun King Alex of Salmond as he agreed to impose his will on the disagreeable sovereign people of Scotland.

By Aboot Timeyagits

THE SOVEREIGN people of Scotland urged the politicians last night to switch to a single question referendum.

The people of Scotland are said to be ready to grant whatever powers the Big Scottish Cooncil needs to hold a legally binding vote on the future of North Britain.

They have also insisted that should the outcome of the vote be Yes, that the requisite granted powers be acted upon immediately.

After five minutes in the pub, with a wee fly smoke before coming back in, the sovereign people of Scotland settled on the final question:

“Do you agree that Scotland should be independent of Alex Salmond?

Speaking after a visit to the lavvy in Scotstoun Pub Stitchthat Yakunt, sovereign Scot Kenneth McAlpine said: “The people of Scotland have had enough of being dictated to by rich ex-banker economists with their noses in the trough of egotism and self aggrandising satisfaction.

“For too long Alex has talked left and acted right – the Scots deserve a better quality of snake oil salesman.”

Spokesperson of non-denominational trans-gender for the SNP, Wee Naebudy, said: “There comes a time when deceit and defiance must be seen for what they are:

“Sun King Alex of Salmond’s vanity project.”
