SHOCK and AWE as Westminster do Behind the Scenes deal to facilitate Scots Independence!

Did you enjoy that heading, or did it alarm you?

Well it might give you a great deal of disappointment or relief, depending on where you stand with regards the referendum, but this article has only the most tenuous link to that spectacular heading.

I have merely copied the tactics used by so many newspapers to grab your attention and make you maybe want to read more and buy the paper.
This tactic is extremely successful whether you buy the paper or not? Even if you don’t buy the paper and only take in the headline, you head off convinced that the headline must be true, and so go spreading the word. Result!! The political message it was trying to impart has sunk in, and an element of belief is then fixed in your head, even if you have some doubts about it.

Time and Time again during this referendum campaign we have seen this tactic employed, Big Headline, article heading off in another direction but slanted towards giving the headline some credibility, and then if the newspaper is particularly on message, coverage of it at the end of Newsnight Scotland on the BBC, giving it even more credibility for the unthinking all accepting dupes who buy that stuff.

It hits the newspaper stands in the shops the next day, and hey bingo, lots of passers by read the headline too, without buying the paper and reading the article.

So if Headline says ” Alex Salmond makes a curry of using the pound” Sub heading ” SNP heading to lose referendum”

That sort of thing makes Salmond a figure of fun by linking it to his fondness of curry, hence allusion to his weight, hence fat gobby lying bastard accusations by the uneducated. And guess what? An Independent Scotland will never happen because it cannae use the pound!
And further more, Scottish Independence is really all about the SNP!

Final result, confirmation for the unionist that they were right all along, and persuasion for the undecided that this Independence lark is just too chancy and uncertain, so best stick with what we have. It has to be better than nothing. right?
Wrong….You have not checked out the facts, and you have been taken hook line and sinker.
See that wee sign on your forehead when you look in the mirror? It says GUM!

About auldacquaintance

I am not a member of any political party. I am however a strong supporter of Scots Independence. Any views which I express in this Blog are purely my own. This Blog intends to be a place where I will be putting my views on Scots Independence. It will primarily concern itself with the upcoming Referendum In Scotland. However It will also be somewhat diverse in the range of day to day issues which are evident to me in modern day Scotland. Not all of it will be political, and indeed may take me off into avenues I am not even aware of yet. Please come and join in on this journey, and any comments are welcome provided they are not abusive! All the best from a new acquaintance! Rod

    I am not so sure that there is not an “understanding” between Salmond and Cameron to shaft Labour. Salmond has a Golden Bridge for him and Cameron gets an easy ride in 2015.

    • Bugger (the Panda) says:

      mind you I might just be a paranoid panda but, seriously, how can you possibly account for the sheer incompetence of the driveby Tory sojourns in Scotland. They all seem to be time to torpedo some announcement or other from Darling or MacDougall.

      Then again, maybe they are just rubbish?

      • I think that maybe there are elements within the Tory party that would be very happy to see Scotland go, but I am not so sure that it is so well organised.
        I am sure they don’t quite deliberately set out to prove themselves so utterly inept and laughable.

      • Andi M says:

        Possibly just an above-average level of intelligence attempting to come to grips with how anyone in a position of power could be so inept and thick? I think the brain rebels as the alternative is just so terrifying- these clowns are really that stupid, and they’re in charge. For now.

    I think the real question is what do the rich, the multinational company CEOs, the City Bankers and Financiers want? Three good little posh boys colluding with them to run the country the way they want? Do they really care about Scotland? Would it be worth the price to gut labour for decades?

    • Andi M says:

      they go where the money is, and will make sure a currency union is in place no matter what as big business would be the only real losers without. (Witness the large oil consultancy based in London that has already threatened removal to Aberdeen in the result of Yes with no currency treaty). They’re simply not going to let that happen. A lot of business leaders and academics are pro-indy too as a more prosperous (although moderately) Scotland means more spending power. Bankers and Financiers though may well be afraid that we go ‘Iceland’ on them. Shame. The beauty of a grassroots campaign is that our voices can be heard above theirs for a change. One conversation at a time…
