Flying of the flag

Recommended Posts

What a stoochie there has been over the flying of The Lion Rampart rather than the Union Jack and the aggressive attacks on Nicola Sturgeon. Not like the Daily Mail to apologise for posting incorrect details after the First Minister set the record straight on Twitter.. Ruth Davidson and David Mundell were happy to support the inaccuracies. 

Could be that there was an upside to Flag Gate – 'It has been evident for some weeks now that the SNP, both as a party and as an administration, was taking a more robust approach to challenging the smears and lies which ooze like stinking pus from the British parties at Holyrood and their accomplices in the print and broadcast media to pollute Scotland’s politics.;

The co-ordination between certain sections of the media and the BBC has been horrific, both in terms of spin and lies that they report and by omission in what they don't report.

The massive pro-NHS demonstration in London was a prime example with it being completely ignored by the BBC until Trump idiotically assumed it was a march of disaffection towards the NHS - at which point the BBC reported his anti NHS comments.

Spot on. The massive march in support of NHS not deemed newsworthy.  Then Trump puts it on the map but totally wrong end of the stick.  Yesterday it was wall to wall coverage of two terrorists captured. Definitely a news item but not sure it requires to be discussed for hours from every angle including repeat interviews with relatives.  
The major issue of the Irish Border and suggestion that N. Ireland may remain within the single market with huge implications for other devolved nations not addressed at all.
Neither are we seeing anything of the huge upturn of work (and value) in oil and gas.

I must admit I m disgusted by the behaviour of the labour party, their brexit cowardice and in Glasgow, regarding the equal pay dispute at GCC
