As expected, BBC Newsnight Scotland did a story last night on the SNP 'Yes Scotland' pro independence campaigners "posing as Labour for Independence supporters" in a series of photographs published on the internet and in newspapers. This was despite the fact that the story was debunked earlier in the day by the excellent 'Rev Stu at Wings over Scotland' and in numerous comments left at 'The Herald', The Scotsman' and 'The Daily Record' who also ran with the fake story.
The photo had been cropped with the comment below the photograph saying "Big thanks to @labourforindy for attending todays EastAyrshire @YesScotland stall." being deleted.
Another comment deleted was "Lab4Indy in Killie today campaigning alongside Yes East Ayrshire".
The biased agenda was to make out that " Labour for Independence" was just an SNP front and that no one in the Labour party would seriously consider voting for independence. The polls differ of course and the 'Yes Scotland' Deputy is former Labour MP Dennis Canavan but this is ignored. The biased media in Scotland are trying to polarise the options between the status quo or an Alex Salmond led SNP in an independent Scotland. The fact that the people of Scotland can vote for whoever they like after a Yes vote for independence is studiously ignored by our 'journalists'. Whenever someone raises this point they are quickly cut off. As happened last night on Newsnight Scotland.
The truth of the 'cropped picture' could be found after spending five minutes looking on the internet yet we are led to believe that the vast resources of the BBC failed to find this out.
It must be time for the international monitors to be called in. The Zimbabwe elections have just finished so there will be some observers available at the moment to monitor things in Scotland.
