Unpopular Nicola Sturgeon has become an apologist for the hate campaign run by Nationalists during the Scottish independence referendum against the BBC.
"The frustration that many (independence supporters) felt was not borne out of a misplaced desire to control the media, but from a genuine concern that the playing field didn't always feel even."
There was a genuine desire to intimidate and bully as can be seen by the protests outside the BBC and online hatred towards BBC staff.
Sturgeon like the former despot Alex Salmond claims the BBC's coverage of last year's independence referendum was unfair.
As I remarked on Twitter yesterday, that is like saying a trial is unfair because the prosecution wants to use the truth.
Through-out the Scottish independence campaign, the Nationalists continually lied, distorted the truth, fabricated figures and made claims which no evidence supported. The biggest lies presented to the Scottish public were on the rather thorny issues of currency and the EU.
On the issue of the pound, the SNP tried to hoodwink the public that they could continue to use the pound and it would be backed by the Bank of England.
Some idiots at BT events hosted by former Labour MP screamed; “it’s our pound” as if that had some kind of legal backing attached to it. When the Westminster Government said no currency union,
Scotland’s ‘jolly fat man’ Alex Salmond tried to
On the EU, Sturgeon said that
Scotland would have automatic EU
membership and didn’t have to go through the normal entry procedures under
Article 49, citing that the treaty could be changed and they could get in using
Article 48. They even used Germany
reunification as an example which was totally bogus and had no standing to
support their case.
Another point worth mentioning is that part of the condition of EU entry is a country must have its own Central Bank and currency.
So, Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon knew they were always going to ‘dump the pound’ which they created a smokescreen around to garner votes.
They wanted access to the European Central Bank, so they did a despicable con trick of deception played out on the Scottish public.
These issues were touched on by the Better Together campaign, bloggers such as me; and the wider mainstream media.
With so much lies and deception coming from the Nationalist camp, it was only right that the BBC analysed the SNP's case for independence in depth. Like raw sewage the SNP kept pumping out a horror story dress up as a fairytale.
For Nicola Sturgeon to claim unfairness in reporting and also claim 'network' journalists, reporting the story for the whole of the
were poorly informed is utterly bizarre.
To quote Sturgeon:
At present the SNP are trying to cobble a case to get control of the BBC in Scotland, and they are making demands and saying they are willing to be an ‘ally’. The BBC doesn’t need this ‘petty small minded provincial grievance merchant’ stinking up Pacific Quay in
At the Alternative McTaggart lecture at the Edinburgh International Television Festival, she launched a strongly-worded attack on the BBC, the wrong time, the wrong place and the wrong subject.
"I am not saying there was institutional bias in the BBC's referendum output. However, there were occasions when its coverage - through oversight, apparent ignorance of the detail of an issue or as a result of simply following the agenda of openly partisan print media - lapsed from the objective output the referendum deserved into what could seem partial and, at times, pejorative. I don't doubt the effort and integrity that went into the Corporation's coverage. And, for the record, I think that the BBC; and BBC Scotland in particular, has some of the finest political journalists in the land”.
Nicola Sturgeon does fake sincerity as badly as young guy tugging away at his first pair of female panties, clumsy and rather crude with a belief of being sophisticated.
In trying to appear Statesmanlike and failing yet again, she stated it was right the case for independence should be analysed to a greater degree than the case for staying in the
But a moan worthy of Joan McAlpine, she complained:
"The status quo and the consequences of voting No were not really analysed at all."
What is there to be analysed, all the information of No which is the status quo is already published.
The consequences of voting No in the Pollok constituency for example were saving the BBC from being shutdown, saving Govan Shipbuilders from being shutdown and saving the NHS from being financially wrecked and thereby saving the lives of many people.
The SNP wanted to shut down the BBC if they had won independence and replace it with a new State broadcaster presumably headed up by Blair Jenkins, Jenkins has since disappeared after Yes Scotland; an SNP front run by the Nationalists got handed their ass on the 18th September 2014.
SNP control of BBC Scotland is a joke in very poor taste; it will also be dismissed as verboten down the road at
Westminster. It seems that Nicola Sturgeon is
becoming as ridiculous as Alex Salmond with the bizarre outbursts; it is like
watching outtakes from failed candidates from the X Factor.
I am a big fan of the BBC, I want them to ask politicians from any party the hard questions; I don’t want them gagged by the SNP goons, the BBC protests were a huge tactical mistake, but what do you expect from stupid small minded little people in every sense of the word.
From the SNP expect nothing and you will not be disappointed.
