Exclusive: Wings Over Scotland ads – why they were pulled by SPT

AHDINNAEKEN has been having a right guid laff at the expense of the self-righteous hate-preaching Jedi Reverend Campbell of Wangs Over Skintland recently. His cabal of “creepy as f**k” agentura were in fine form last night. They claim the forces of imperialist oppression are out to silence the site by gagging its inaccurate propaganda/advertising. AhDinnaeKen, through blinding tears of incredulous laughter, reports:

The truth the imperialistic oppressors of Strathclyed Passenger Transport don't want you to see.

The “truth” the imperialistic censors at Strathclyde Passenger Transport don’t want you to see.

By Ahmstill Laffin

“HELP! HELP! We’re being oppressed” was the clamour on the social media sphere last night.

Stereotypical frothing rage followed an executive decision by Strathclyde Passenger Transport (SPT) to reinforce its strict policy of no political adverts.

The decision resulted in the pulling of propaganda ads paid for by Wings Over Scotland and displayed on Glasgow Underground cars.

The action followed complaints raised by concerned members of the public who thought that the Nationalist Front were in town.

Sources close to the SPT said they “couldn’t risk being seen as a medium for right wing extremists and ego driven narcissists peddling hate-preaching agendas.”

One of the complainers contacted AhDinnaeKen in confidence to express his concerns.

He said: “My young niece was one of the leafletters stalked by Wings ‘creepy as f**k’ goons earlier this year.

“She couldn’t believe what she saw when she got on the underground train going to Hillhead.

“She felt like she was being stalked all over again. It left her feeling rather shaken and upset.”

The confidant’s niece had been followed and photographed by a sinister agent of Wings at a lonely dark train station in February.

SPT have still to explain the exact reason for the pulling of the propaganda posters.

But a quick reading of its advertising policy handbook, section 6, subsection 6, paragraph 6 is clear on this type of advertising.

It states: “No creepy as f**k stalker coordinators will be tolerated in any part of the Strathclyde Passenger Transport network. That specifically includes hilariously inaccurate posters and right wing nazi styled logos.”

A Twitter storm last night threatened to break out of its teacup resulting in the story being taken up by McCarthyite crackpot indy website Newsnat Scotland.

In a froth flecked broadside, the Newsnat story claimed that journalist Severin Carrell appeared to “support” SPT’s action.

Carrell had tweeted: “@WingsScotland buys ads in every Glasgow subway car attacking Scottish press on #indyref; says SPT to pull every one ”

AhDinnaeKen commented: “In the world of real journalism, Carrell’s tweet was straight forward reporting of events.

“Newsnat’s conflation of Carrell’s tweet into ‘support’ of the pulling of the propaganda posters makes you wonder what goes through these people’s heads.”

The action of SPT is expected to be on the lips of every indy supporting swivel eyed conspiracy theorist from now till September 18.

One Wingnut said: “This is rocket fuel for grievance merchants. We can feed off this for months.”

Whatever could give anyone that impression? There's no accounting for folk y'know.
