Nothing like stoking hatred to justify to the knuckle draggers that the reason and blame for losing the Scottish independence referendum lies with someone else other than Alex Salmond and unpopular Nicola Sturgeon.
Let’s get it right, they are the ones who fucked it all up!
The BBC rather than allowing themselves to be used as an SNP propaganda vehicle decided to uphold its code of impartiality despite the fact that Salmond wanted to shutdown the BBC in
Scotland and replace it with a
State broadcaster control by the SNP via the Scottish Government.
Time for a quote:
“Is it true that chicks fart if you blast them in the ass”?
This is from the movie, Dogma, however this has nothing to do with the article; I just thought I would put in it for entertainment purposes.
Now, here is the quote I want to use:
“There is nothing worse than watching a fucking fat man weep”!
Same movie, but it aptly describes the former First Minister who effectively is acting like a little bitch with a skint knee.
Why anyone would want to read Salmond’s version of the independence campaign is beyond me, he couldn’t be arsed to cobble together a decent story never mind a proper blueprint for a country.
For him, it was all about a ‘jolly fat man’ act and big smile of fake sincerity that he was your best pal.
Promoting the diary in a newspaper interview, he said:
“In the last stages they sent up their
London heavies to replay all the stories
hanging about the referendum over the previous months. Broadcasters are
supposed to remain impartial. You don’t achieve balance by presenting
Armageddon from one side and letting the other side reply about why the earth
is not going to shatter into fragments. It’s not balance to allow one side to
reply to ridiculous allegations.”
Ridiculous allegations, does he mean pointing out the lies using the truth, is that what Salmond is talking about?
Did this fat fool forget all the lies the SNP leadership told and presented as fact to the public, like automatic EU membership, or the fable about having a currency union by attempting to use blackmail of withholding
share of the national debt?
Salmond also said it was obvious that the “vast bulk of the written media” would be against independence.
Presumably the press thought that a country thrown into total chaos where there were no real credible economic plans was something worth fighting against. But it wasn’t just the media who were against Salmond and Sturgeon; the majority of the Scottish people were as well.
It seems that Alex Salmond isn’t the political mastermind that he likes to think he is, his campaign was tawdry and without substance, even people who support independence weren’t backing him to sell out their fellow countrymen and women.
Towards the end of the indy campaign Salmond clashed with Nick Robinson, the BBC’s political editor, this prompted the wrath of the cybernats and the reporter was called a liar. The BBC was specifically targeted by nationalist protestors, organised, but what was interesting was none of the ‘faces’ of the SNP turned up. People can make their own minds up whether this was directed and controlled by nationalists behind the scenes.
If you took the time to see the BBC protestors, you could see that
brains weren’t taking part outside the BBC’s offices in Glasgow’s Pacific Quay. Alex Salmond failed
to condemn the demonstrations; which speaks volumes about this fat bitch and
Another BBC person who fell foul of the Nationalists was Allegra Stratton, political editor of Newsnight. Salmond accused her of being on the side of the Better Together campaign.
Maybe she didn’t like Salmond personally which is understandable from where I stand, he is a hollow man without principles who like Sturgeon will do a U turn for votes.
In laying into someone else to blame; Salmond grassed up a civil servant called Robert Mackie. Named as the person that “leaked” information to the BBC over the Royal Bank of
plans to relocate its headquarters to England in the event of a Yes vote!
Mackie is a press officer, press officers answer questions posed by the press; anyway Mackie was acting as head of Scottish referendum communications at the Treasury. The ‘evidence’ if you can call it that was Mackie’s link to Alistair Darling, leader of the Better Together campaign.
Mr Salmond wrote: "The Treasury official immediately responsible for the leak was Robert Mackie who is, coincidentally, the son of Catherine MacLeod - former special advisor to ex-chancellor Alistair Darling, leader of the No campaign. Mr Mackie's ultimate boss is Sir Nicholas Macpherson, the man who believed civil service impartiality did not apply to the referendum."
"It's as dramatic and clear-cut a breach of confidence as you'll find in terms of potentially market sensitive information.”
Get a life Salmond, Treasury spokesperson dismissed Salmond’s claims of a leak, saying that no press officer leaked information about RBS.
The RBS plan was confirmed in response to a question from a tabloid newspaper, adding:
“When HMT issued a statement about RBS's possible intentions, it was responding to a story in the Sun newspaper about Lloyd's contingency plans to move their registered HQ out of Scotland in the event of a 'Yes' vote, quoting an RBS source saying that RBS would almost certainly follow suit. It was clear that this story was likely to generate significant interest in - and uncertainty about - an issue with important implications for financial stability. In response, therefore, the Treasury press office confirmed its understanding of RBS's contingency planning. We judged that it was important to set this out - at a time when the
financial markets were closed - given our overarching responsibility for
maintaining financial stability in the UK. As this was outside normal
office hours, this statement was issued by HMT's press officer on duty at the
time acting on the instructions of senior HMT officials and ministers."
All above board and within the terms of the press officer’s duties, so there is no smoking gun; no lead pipe and no candlestick with fingerprints on it of a ‘crime’ that wasn’t committed.
Alex Johnstone, the Conservative MSP, said it appeared Salmond had still not come to terms with the decisive outcome of the referendum. Salmond’s book is purely for the gullible to milk them for their cash, if you expect anything like an apology forget it.
Salmond’s book is called: “the Dream Shall Never Die: 100 Days that Change Scotland Forever”, but I think a better title would be; ‘There is nothing worse than watching a fucking fat man weep, the bitch who couldn’t accept he lost the Scottish independence referendum’!
