I have been to a few BBC events, in general, well run and I have no complaints; the staff can’t do enough to make your time enjoyable. But not everyone likes the BBC, the SNP want to shut down if
independent, which speaks volumes about their concern for freedom of the press.
Nick Robinson, the BBC reporter was specifically targeted for a campaign of hatred during the independence referendum. When he became ill, the cybernats, or as I prefer to call them, the ‘Sons of Alex’, they were overjoyed that the reporter might have cancer and die.
Alex Salmond and unpopular Nicola Sturgeon spent decades fostering grudge, grievance and malcontent and like the genie out of the bottle, there is no putting it back in.
The latest BBC victim to feel the wrath of the ‘Sons’ is James Cook, he is a Scottish reporter, his crime is asking questions, apparently asking questions of the SNP leadership which is run as a ‘cult’ is verboten.
Anyway, James Cook has taken the rare step of challenging the “vicious abuse” he received from Nationalist supporters after asking Nicola Sturgeon about claims she wants the Tories to win the general election. I would say in my opinion, that the SNP would probably want a Tory victory; Sturgeon needs someone to be the villain which is how the SNP operate politically.
In the SNP it is ‘them versus us’, even within the party.
Shop soiled white hope Nicola Sturgeon obviously is playing the role ‘heroine’ of the Scots, the one problem is that Ms. Sturgeon is looking rather haggard these days.
Salmond says the BBC is a “national disgrace” and “akin to a wicked stepmother in a pantomime”.
I would opine; that if a role of a wicked stepmother needs to be filled, then unpopular Nicola Sturgeon fits the bill rather nicely.
Hate is nothing new on twitter, I suffered a hate campaign on twitter for campaigning against the SNP which is going to Glasgow Sheriff Court on the 29th October; the person arrested and charged has been previously outed in the press.
Cook was attacked on Twitter by trolls and received “threatening” emails, which are being studied by the corporation. The BBC should make a documentary on this, and out everyone, and also involve the Police.
Alex Salmond and the SNP would dearly love control of broadcasting to be devolved to the Scottish Parliament which they control. In fact, just recently Salmond was demanding the BBC in
Scotland transfer control so that
its political coverage could be made more favourable to the SNP.
Never happen, the SNP don’t believe in freedom of speech and freedom of expression, this is typical in ‘cults’ where people are required to blindly follow the doctrine of the ‘messiah’.
Unpopular Nicola Sturgeon took to twitter to back BBC reporter James Cook, this was promptly ignored by the ‘Sons of Alex’, it seems not even her own supporters put any stock in Nicola Sturgeon’s leadership.
Finally, when the cybernats turn on Nicola Sturgeon, it will create a dilemma; who do the public root for, mind you I think many people in
will settle for a ‘double knock out.
