Moan McVulpine: How politicians’ lies and damned lies have become monontonous statistics

MOAN says all politicians are big lie peddlers. She should know. She’s one.

By Moan McVulpineadding yet more lies to lies, damned lies and statistics

THE BIG lie is a common propaganda technique.

It’s used by politicians of all colours and contributes to an almost universal public disaffection with said politicians.

So it is repeated ad nauseum and people listen less as a result.

George Orwell’s 1984 is used as a stick to beat opponents over the head with whenever people don’t like what’s happening in their political environment.

In many ways, the likes of Joan McAlpine and her Nationalist Front heroes in the blogosphere, demonstrate their commitment to Orwell’s idea of groupthink and the hate ritual, meaning “To lump all enemies and opponents into one homogenous group and consistently and monotonously blame them for all our woes.”

You know the kind of thing: Labour are Tory are Mainstream Media are Project Fear…

It’s the Nationalist way and a propaganda stereotype. So far, so what.

The people of Scotland are being fed such super porkies from both sides of the indyref debate that only the truly committed could make a (mis)informed decision.

And that’s where the like of zealotous propagandists like Joan McAlpine come in.

From her personal ‘nocturnal’ life to her political shenanigans to her Hyde Park corner column in the Daily Redcoat, her output is a non-stop litany of Nationalist stereotype, threat and core vote bile.

Despite hanging on desperately to the last shreds of the mantra ‘Bitter Together are Project Fear’ the Nationalist ‘positive’ message has switched almost 180 degrees.

Now we’re fed a constant stream of the consequences of a No vote: poverty for your weans, out of Europe and cast adrift on the world stage, no Barnett formula, a Unionist stitch-up on tax which will fillet the SNP for generations, and a vengeful imperialist Godzilla let loose on Scotland to strip her of her remaining natural assets.

In other words, a No vote will lead to the complete and utter desolation of Scotland. Ho hum. Zzzz… Next!

Core vote stuff which appeals to the tinfoil conspiracy theorist heidbangers oot there.

Y’know, people like Joan McAlpine.

They have form when it comes to telling big lies, wee lies and personally devastating lies.

So let’s not take Joanie too seriously.

We* know you don’t anyway.

Moan McVulpine: Holyrood is doing us a ‘civic’ disservice

MOAN says Firstminster Salmond and John Swinney will do anything to increase their elite positions and for that reason we should take with a huge pinch of salt their views on Scottish Independence:

By Moan McVulpineputting the shame into shameless

ANOTHER WEEK, another Nationalist report over inflating Scotland’s independent prospects. No wonder nobody but the converted even take notice.

The latest Big Parish Cooncil analysis made sweeping generalisations based on the most optimistic figures available about how extra rich we are all going to be post-independence.

If only we could throw off the yoke of our imperialist colonisers at Westminster aka the basturt English .

Should this tissue of dodgy used car salesman promises surprise anyone? Every week we get the strongest evidence that Salmond is running out of snake oil.

Questioned by the opposition at FMQs he continually failed to provide any figures for what the start up costs of iScotland News Corps Plc will actually be.

For the acolytes of ffrreeddoomm™ it disnae matter – better free and impoverished than suffer the continued humiliation of occupied subjugation.

In other words, those who are with Salmond are true Scots, those who urnae – urnae.

Of course, the whole rotten fiasco is based on belief. Maybe the land of milk and citizen Tommy will come to be. Most probably it willnae.

In keeping with low expectations, the pro-UK Treasury lot hardly instill confidence when they get flatly contradicted by the very people they commissioned to research their reports.

It looks rank amateur, presentationally at least, because it is rank amateur.

But the recent debacle only shows why the indy referendum is too important a subject for a bunch of bawbag politicians to be in charge of it.

Danny Alexander, the presenter of the Treasury figures, has the look of an over abused Bullingdon fag boy caught in the headlights.

As the UK has already shown through the Euro election results, there’s an appetite out there for sacking all of the politicians.

UKIP are the anti-common sense party, yet they still trounced the allegedly ‘proper’ politicians.

Salmond, Sturgeon et al say that there’s a “world of difference” in Scotland.

The SNP already occupy the place of UKIP in the country – disaffection, grievance, frustration, impotence, loonyism and dissent. Effectively, the SNP got there first before UKIP.

The SNP only did so well in 2011 and at the Euro elections because there was a low turnout. They always do well with low turnouts. The disciples of ffrreeddoomm™ are always there, waiting and ready.

Just like the SNP’s recent analysis of Scotland’s future, when the real turnout turns out at the referendum, they’re likely to be found wanting.

Roll on Sep 18. We’ve had enough of this pish.
