Unionist propagandist BBC will be forced to apologise over their presentation of Fiona Hyslop as a credible politician.
Nationalism requires denial of certain truths in order to operate effectively according to George Orwell. I wonder if it also meant denial of what you see and what you hear. AhDinnaeKen thinks we should be told. G. A. Ponseybody come in, yer tea’s oot!

UNIONIST BIASED BBC Scotland has come under increasing pressure to apologise for misleading the public into believing that Scotland’s Culture minster should be taken seriously.
Opponents of the beleagured institution claim that Fiona Hyslop was presented by the BBC as if she had something remotely sensible to say on Europe, BBC reporting or Irish ministers.
The row, which the BBC are trying to spin as “misconstrued”, blew up over claims that it reported an Irish minister for saying what she said.
But Hyslop refused to believe her own eyes and ears despite the BBC playing a full ‘unspliced’ clip of the Irish minister’s thoughts.
The Irish minister, Lucinda Righton, is heard to say “If Scotland were to become independent, Scotland would have to apply for membership” followed later by “negotiations for membership are always painstaking and they’re always complex, but I don’t see why it would be difficult.”
In classic SNP denial of reality, Hyslop claimed that what the Minister had really said was not what she said to the BBC but what she had said in an email to Deputy Miss leader Sturgeon.
When asked on the BBC’s Politics Scotland “Do you agree with what she is saying there?” Hyslop answered:
“Well I agree with her email that says she did not say what she said when the BBC reported what she said as what she said.
“What she really said is what we say she said and not what the BBC say she said despite her having said what she said to the BBC.”
Following the breathtaking denial of reality, the BBC switchboard was inundated with complaints from grown adults demanding that CBeebies should not be amalgamated with Politics Scotland without prior warning.
A spokestristram for the BBC said: “We can only work with the tools the political parties send us.
“Bad tools always blame the workmen. We’re currently working on contingency plans for when we will inevitably be blamed for losing the SNP the Neverendum.”
