Scotsman accused of being unfairly accusative? Tories accused of nothing, ever?

111036992-465106

Here’s today’s Scotsman headline:

‘SNP accused of registering new website for Indyref2 campaign’

The report goes on to say:

‘The SNP has declined to explain the reason for the new site. Scottish Conservative deputy leader Jackson Carlaw told The Herald newspaper: “This shows that while Nicola Sturgeon was pretending to the people of Scotland she was pausing the independence agitation, her party machine was doing the very opposite. Despite accepting the voters didn’t want another referendum, her IT elves were busy building the online foundation for another push.”’

I’ll leave the opportunity given to Jerkson Carping for a wee Tory rant. However, am I missing something here? Remind me what does SNP mean? Why are they ‘accused’? Imagine we read:

‘UKIP accused of registering new website for hard Brexit campaign’

‘USA accused of registering new website for promotion of US values’

‘Tories accused of registering new website for promotion of ‘Greed is good’ campaign’

‘Scotsman accused of registering new website in desperate attempt to get readers’

I’ve been accused of only reporting good things about independence for Scotland. I have. It’s true.

    You and other pro-independence sites have highlighted a number of vacuous or mendacious pieces published by the Herald or Scotsman, and often propagated by the broadcast media. They seem so feeble that I have begun to wonder if they are preaching to the converted to ensure that the unionist side does not lose any dyed in the wool supporters, i.e. people who believe their own propaganda. (We, on our side have a few, too!)

    Interesting to note that beeb Northern Ireland politics page reports Theresa May stating that she wants to have Northern Ireland’s ‘..voice..’ at the Brexit talks table. Meanwhile she steadfastly refuses to allow Scotland or Wales the merest hint of any such access. Can’t imagine why there seems to be this different approach in the case of Northern Ireland – Any ideas out there? (Or should Mike Russell MSP (and Mark Drakeford AM) be holding their collective breath in anticipation of an invite to join Theresa and David D. at the next Westminster/M. Barnier meeting do we think?):

    Theresa May wants NI voice at Brexit talks table

    Northern Ireland is having difficulties in communicating concerns on Brexit due to the lack of a functioning executive, the chair of Westminster’s Northern Ireland Committee has said.
    Andrew Murrison was addressing the Liaison Committee of senior MPs.

    The prime minister told the committee she would like a voice from Northern Ireland at the Brexit talks table.
    Theresa May said she is making sure that Northern Ireland will have more of a voice for the next round of talks.

    A resurrected non story from 8 months ago. It has though allowed them to promulgate the lie that the FM had put the referendum on hold, she didn’t.
