IN MOST COUNTRIES, THE PRESS WOULD BRAG ABOUT THIS...

...WE ARE IN A BETTER STATE THAN GERMANY...

Standard & Poors give Scotland their highest economic assessment. Dispels a few myths, eh?

In Scotland, however, the press is rather quieter about it. Presumably this is because they don't want you to know. Doesn't fit with their proprietors or editors collecting gongs, seats in Houses of Senility and perhaps a slightly lighter regulation...

I wonder, if ever the Uk managed a better GDP than Germany (snigger, giggle, choke), would they be so reticent. Probably only if there was something in it for them.

  1. The problem in Scotland is that MSM has no standards and the journalists (for the most part) are poor.

    I'll get my coat ;-)

    Of course it won't get reported it doesn't fit with the project fear that they have been told to promote. The journalists within the msm and the bbc are not journalists, they report what they are told and little integrity or honesty. Life in Britain today, do as your told. Ild rather have Putin , at least he's in your face unlike the cowards we have.

    1. That's an interesting question alright:

      Which would you prefer: the chains you can see, or the chains you can pretend aren't there?

    2. I think on reflection, repulsive though he is, I'd prefer Camertoff to Putin.

      As Mrs Merkel is reputed to have pointed out after her phone call with him...pointed out, he seems to have lost touch with reality

  3. The conduct and words of the British media since the referendum campaign started has shattered any illusions that we Scots may have had that we live in a free society where freedom of speech is paramount, for the evidence is now there for all the world to see that the British media is nothing more than the censor and propaganda mouthpiece of the Westminster establishment.

    The conduct and words of the Westminster unionist politicians has also shattered any illusions that Scots may have had that we are equal partners in the union that calls itself Great Britain.

    There is only one solution to this now and that is to get out of this awful union and as far away from Westminster as we can by voting YES on 18 September.

  4. According to Minitru, this report never happened, and anyone who claims to have seen it should report to Miniluv for Political Realignment.

  5. You need to be a country first, then you can have your own press to do the bragging.

  6. This is what you get when you allow almost all of the media to be owned/controlled by people who are not resident and have no interest in your country.
    Of course Scots never having had a say in this matter gives us yet another reason to vote Yes.
    Until then,I am afraid we are where we are.

    1. Absolutely true bringiton.

      The media has absolutely no interest in what the daily lives of Scots are like. They live in England, the Channel Islands or America.

      It is mad to let this happen... and most states wouldn't.

    Have some of that


    Saturday’s Sun newspaper had a new YouGov poll of Scottish voting intentions with topline figures of YES 35%(+1), NO 53%(+1).

    n a similar vein there is a new Ipsos MORI Scottish poll, also timed to mark the 200 days to go point, and again showing very little change. Amongst those certain to vote YES is on 32%(-2), NO is on 57%(nc),

    1. Hmmm NIko of little faith.

      If the figures are a good for BT as these polls suggest, then why on earth are they all panicking?

  10. Just a few days ago they lived in peace with each other
    then the Independentists in the crimea took over.
    And look what they do to the united Ukraine supporters
    is this a foretelling of the future of what the nationalists have
    in store for any remaining unionists .

  12. And how familiar is this ??? straight out of the cybernat playbook


    An informal Facebook poll this weekend asking whether the Russian military should be intervening in Crimea drew heated arguments from both sides and descended into debaters accusing each other of illiteracy and treason.

    1. How fortunate Niko, that all the Anglophiles are always polite and reasoned.

      The situation, as you know, in Crimea, is rather different.

      Don't worry though. It will soon be sorted. Mr Hague is on it.

      Should all be over in a few days. I bet that Putin bloke is fair trembling at the thought of wee Wullie coming across to sort him out.

    The Scots are more anxious than the English and Welsh about the effect of independence on the United Kingdom as a whole, and also worry about Scotland in particular. That is the finding of new Ipsos Mori polling on both sides of the border, which has been exclusively shared with the Guardian.
