‘Yes’ campaigners fury over Sky News bias – Faisal Islam accused

Nationalist fundamentalists gave Scotland an object lesson in how to shoot the messenger recently. AhDinnaeKen cringes:

MSM conspiracy. Journalist tells truth in order to lie to sovereign people of Scotland.

THERE WAS fury from Yes fundamentalists last night following accusations that Sky News’ Political editor, Faisal Islam told the truth about the fall in oil prices.

“This anti-Scottish mainstream media liar lied to the public by not lying and telling the truth” frothed Mr A 45’er.

“Faisal Islam seems determined to childishly report that the oil price has dropped and implies that previous SNP government projections of $110 per barrel were hopelessly optimistic and delusional.

“It would be much fairer if Mr Islam just admitted that his reporting is a mainstream media trick perepetrated by No voting coffin dodgers to make pre-referendum SNP projections look ridiculous.

“Faisal has form on this. He made Firstminster Salmond look stupid and deceptive over the currency union by asking him honest pertinent questions. And that’s just not good enough.

“What we want is the truthful truth about just how truthful the SNP are. Thank goodness we can just stick our fingers in our ears and read The National.”

MacAesops Fables #7 – The Wolf and the Dog

Our seventh Sunday outpouring of sanctimony and self-righteous morality to be taken as seriously as the Economist’s ‘Skintland’ cover

"The greatest triumphs of propaganda have been accomplished, not by doing something, but by refraining from doing. Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth." -- Aldous Huxley

A GAUNT Wolf was almost dead with hunger when he happened to meet a Corporate-House-dog who was passing by.

“Ah, Cousin,” said the Corporate-House-dog. “I knew how it would be; your irregular life will soon be the ruin of you.  Why do you not work steadily as I do, and get your food regularly given to you?”

“I would have no objection,” said the Wolf, “if I could only get a place.”

“I will easily arrange that for you,” said the Corporate-House-dog; “come with me to my master and you shall share my work.”

So the Wolf and the Corporate-House-dog went towards the warehouse together.  On the way there the Wolf noticed that the hair on a certain part of the Corporate-House-dog’s neck was very much worn away, so he asked him how that had come about.

“Oh, it is nothing,” said the Corporate-House-dog.  “That is only the place where the collar is put on during work to keep me chained up; it chafes a bit, but one soon gets used to it.”

“Is that all?” said the Wolf.  “Then good-bye to you, Master Corporate-House-dog.”

Analysis: Forget the idea that this fable is about rejecting the Union even if it meant impoverishment. No, this is a warning that Scotland may become viewed as an easy stomping ground for corporate governance as witnessed by  new Amazon employment ‘opportunities’ in Fife.  Sun King Alex of Salmond’s silence on the matter of Corporation Tax and Corporate responsibility regarding working practise,  gives no greater resonance to the cry and moral of this fable:  “Better starve free than be a fat corporate slave.”
