New instructions for writers and commentators

thriller.jpg

The TuS editorial board (above) has decided it is time for a summary of required terminology to be issued, to avoid disappointment for any rejected contributors.

Readers will already be familiar with some of these but one or two are more recent.

  1. Non-Scottish parts of the UK: To be used instead of England, Wales or N Ireland in any comparative comment
  2. Nomedia: To be used for any Scottish media agency other than those supportive of Independence
  3. Loyalist: To be used for any media outlet or politician clearly loyal to the UK
  4. FK: ‘Fragmented Kingdom’ to be used instead of UK at all times other than 5.
  5. FUCK: ‘Frankly Useless Collapsing Kingdom’: To be used sparingly when really angry.
  6. CUNT: Consolidated Unionist News Transcription Services, you know, the advisory body which transforms good news about affairs Scottish into bad and feeds it to the Nomedia.
  7. Comedias:Tthe collective noun, when two or more nomedia use the same hymn sheet (tory/labour press release) or strategy.

Suggestions for additional guidance should be entered below.

    Editor, please kelp. I’m not sure of a safe way to mention Consolidated Unionist News Transcription Services, you know, the advisory body which transforms good news about affairs Scottish into bad and feeds it to the Nomedia.
