So did anything interesting happen this week? :) Why couldn’t Murphy have been called Clegg or something? Much easier to rhyme “egg” with that in a limerick. Still, this was a shocking coordinated attack led by the official Yes campaign in an increasingly desperate attempt to undermine the democratic process so it wouldn’t be right to crack any yolks about it. It’s most unfortunate that Jim’s contribution to the independence debate appears to be well and truly ova. Continue reading
Will he or won’t he? That seemed to be the big question going round about ex-First Minister Henry McLeish’s voting intentions after a tweet by Blair McDougall late last week. To be honest I think the real question was: who gives a rat’s arse? The whole thing sounded like classic Better Togetout tactics – announce something that could be taken as good news for the Yes camp and then when it didn’t happen release the MSM attack dogs with the usual headlines -
“Devastating Setback for Salmond’s Break-Up Plans” Continue reading
I think I’ve worked out the procedure now:
1. World leader visits London for a meeting with David Cameron.
2. World leader then says, completely unprompted, “Of course the referendum is purely a matter for the people of Scotland and we wouldn’t dream of interfering, but independence would be a bad idea because <insert whatever nonsense Westminster have thought up for them here>.” Continue reading
The cybernats have been at it again. What’s wrong with these sad individuals? 200 of the great and the good of British society give up their free time and take it upon themselves to tell us how loved and wanted we are and yet all some of you can do is throw it back in their faces?
Ok so David Starkey previously said we were a “feeble little country” I say forgive and forget. Certainly there was no need for what you’re about to read…
Social media was ablaze this week. Twitter and Facebook went into meltdown at the very thought of a major player in the referendum debate making a long-awaited appearance on an expectant nation’s TV screens. Unfortunately… Continue reading
The Commonwealth Games are in full swing and the “we cannaes” and “I’m all right jocks” have fairly got their collective drawers in a twist over the spawn of Satan aka “that bastirt samind” maybe making any statements that could be linked to the referendum, however tenuously. In truth the First Minister has been as good as his word in keeping politics out of the Games unlike the Better Togetout mob with the dual purpose flags they’ve been handing out. Continue reading
A bit of a computer disaster put paid to my cybernatting activities for a few days there. It was nothing to do with an attempted hack of this site last week that I traced to deep in the bowels of the Westminster area in London. Just a coincidence I’m sure as I doubt if they have the means to zap memory chips from 400 miles away. Still, I was in esteemed company with the IT issues as I noticed BBC Scotland’s website was experiencing problems over the same period. That one must’ve been a case of the more sh*te you feed down the pipes, the greater the chance of clogging your system up. Anyway, given the way the BT mob recycle the scare stories this post should be current enough. Continue reading
I’m going to charitably put the collective batsh*t craziness we’ve seen from the “we cannaes” this week down to the rapidly approaching full moon of July 12th.
Despite knowing that he’ll have to present a case with more holes in it than a Brazilian defence line, Alistair Darling has finally manned up and agreed to let David Cameron hide behind him while he is dismembered by the First Minister in a live TV
slaughtering debate early next month. Continue reading
And so it begins, as predicted on here months ago, with the first “bomb threat” being reported by Better Togetout. Seemingly someone walked into one of their premises and threatened to “firebomb” the place. ”Aye, right,” says a somewhat sceptical me. Considering the simple placing of a Yes sticker on an MSP’s office was denounced as “wanton vandalism” with said MSP then being too scared to walk down the street without a disguise, I reckon what really happened is that some local worthy needing a nicotine fix stuck his heid in the door and asked, “Got a light, mate?” Continue reading
I’ve heard a few folk say that an England World Cup win would’ve been just the boost needed to push the Yes vote into the high 90′s. Let’s face it though – there was never any danger was there?
