The snp/separatist/cybernat crazies have been repeating their interminable drivel about how the BBC is anti Scotland and anti snp, it's an exercise in getting your excuses in before the laugharendum drubbing happens, then they will cry foul once again to the sound of loud ringing laughter. Nowhere is this more noticeable than in the comments column of the newspaper which used to be The Glasgow Herald, a once decent newspaper which has been allowed to deteriorate to a dreadful degree and is now a laughing stock. The lumpen nats have been led by the nose by the Herald's own version of the chuckle brothers the hapless third rate journalists Ian Bell and Iain Macwhirter or just "Bell and Macwhirter" Scotland's own end of the pier comedy duo. I have discovered to my cost that these people will not allow criticism of the paper or these journalists, hence the comment below which they refused to print----------- again. It's a glimpse of what an snp run separate Scotland would be like.
The level of vitriol and paranoia from the kailyard school of Scottish journalism and the nationalist crazies grows in equal proportion to the proximity of the forthcoming laugharendum. The wannabees and third division girners like Bell and Macwhirter and the snp/separatist/cybernat posters have become a pathetic joke and there is still a year to go. Where are they going to end up, what level of bulldung will they end up writing and who else will they find to accuse of bias and anti Scottishness? who else will feel their lash? flower growers, Quakers, dog owners, the scouts, the guides, little old ladies, sun bathers? Enemies and conspirators, insults and abuse for poor old bonny Scotland, real or imagined, where will it end?

The snp have a history of anti English and Irish racism and anti Catholic sectarianism. Every now and them a knuckle dragging snp moron like you pops up to remind us of that fact.
I'm a catholic, a republican and a member of the SNP. Am I a traitor?
Anyway. Apart from the political differences, Bell and MacWhirter write well whereas you don't: you found a set of beliefs as a young man to which you've clung with no curiosity or scepticism-the latter, as I'm sure you know, was defined by Hume as a key characteristic of intelligence. Why do you get so angry when a journalist disagrees with you? Is it because deep down you know that you don't have the intelligence to defend your faith in Britishness and that model of class structure that's been your ideological anchor? I think you should consider therapy. You might be a better and happier person at the end of it.

“I'm a catholic, a republican and a member of the SNP. Am I a traitor?”
No, you are just a very naughty boy. So you think Bell and Macwhirter write very well, there is not much hope for you in that case. “Why do you get so angry when a journalist disagrees with you?” I get angry because my beliefs are important to me and so is politics, you sound as if you might not understand that, you are snp right? As long as I can kick the arses of toy town Nazis like you I will not need therapy.
But I'm not a Nazi. And it's clear that your beliefs are more than important to you: your entire identity and sense of yourself is tied up in that phrase under your photo-"I am a socialist". Nothing wrong with that, but identifying yourself as any kind of -ist when you're not prepared to question the validity of your beliefs-and I could be wrong, but I doubt that you ever have-puts you in the position where your opinions and beliefs are without any intellectual foundation, and turns them into blind faith. For example, your repeated refusal to admit that Stalin was anything other than a benevolent dictator is symptomatic of a pathological denial of reality: your apparently constant, and defensive, state of fury at the SNP is just the emotional consequence of the fact that you know what you believe-but deep down you don't know why.
There. I hope that helps to begin the process of resolving your deep-seated problems. No need to thank me, Councillor.

I have done you the courtesy of reading your comment, It’s a self indulgent pompous example of someone who is not nearly as clever as he obviously thinks he is. You make a series of accusations and assumptions about me which rely on nothing more than your opinion which I don’t much care for. I have never said anything remotely like “Stalin was a benevolent dictator” I have always said that our information about him comes almost exclusively from the west who have a clear interest in demonising him. I regard anyone who buys the CIA inspired claptrap that is said and written about him and indeed many other enemies of the capitalist west as being either gullible or lacking in intellectual rigour.
As for the snp, they have a past record of supporting Hitler, they are cosy with the American white supremacists and have just joined the Flemish Fascists in their Edinburgh demo, their uncrowned queen Winnie Ewing was happy and content to sit with General Franco’s Spanish Falangist group during her time in the European Parliament. Add in the endemic anti English/Irish racism and the anti catholic sectarianism and you have the snp in all their ugliness. I think I have got you spot on. I base these opinions on approximately 50 years of dealing with the snp.
Those certainly weren't accusations-they were observations, and, judging by a response that's simultaneously offensive and defensive, pretty accurate ones. Tell me-have you every doubted any political opinion you've believed since the age of, say, 15?

Pretty accurate observations from me judging by this response.
"Tell me-have you every doubted any political opinion you've believed since the age of, say, 15?"
I'll answer that if you identify yourself.
I've already explained...never mind. I'll take that as a no, then? You really don't have the intellectual courage to question anything of your articles of faith? On the other hand-perhaps I'm wrong. Did you help to facilitate Margaret Thatcher's attempt to build a society of property owners by buying your council house, by any chance?
