Michael White Lies 134


The Guardian’s Michael White is a revolting liar. He writes today in The Guardian:

Why so few “no thanks” posters or union flags? “Because we don’t want our windows smashed or tyres slashed,” some no voters reply.

That is a plain lie, Michael White. No “No voters” said that to you. You made it up. Nor has there been a single instance reported of any No voter having their windows or car trashed.

White also retails a story that a woman allegedly told him on hearsay about somebody else who was “seized by the throat” on canvassing because of their English accent. Well I have lived more than eight years of my adult life in Scotland and never once had any adverse reaction of any kind to my very English accent, including while canvassing in some very deprived areas. This incident is also an invention.

White has always been revolting, his constant snide support for Tony Blair and his wars, covered by that horrible false bonhommie, is repulsive. But the move into straightforward lies disguised as reportage to please his New Labour masters (and their creature Rusbridger) cannot be allowed to pass. Michael White is a disgrace to the profession of journalism.

    Absolutely right Craig. The only violence reported is against Yeseg Broken arm, pregnant woman kicked, Yes office firebombed, Yes canvasser beaten up outside Tynecastle

    Snap. But read “thirty” for “eight” years, with a gradually encroaching faint Scots accent which is probably only detectable by the English. I did, though, get the predictable reaction in a pub showing an England-Scotland rugby match on TV, and making pro-English noises…you can get the same effect in Norwich pubs by supporting a team which is playing the Canaries, I believe. Some things are sacred.

    Agreed. But then so is The Grauniad itself.

    The UK’s MSM’s lies are no surprise to those who (correctly) recognise the UK as the catamite of the fascist US Empire – a fascist US Empire that uses the methods of the Nazis – it helps to choose your sources of information very carefully. Which is why if you rely on the US or UK Muppet Stream Media you’ll never hear the following.

    “The summit of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization [NATO] in Wales, Britain, on Thursday promises to be an exciting event for the alliance. A tortuous journey that began over 23 years ago is about to end. It was on February 25, 1991 that the foreign and defence ministers of the erstwhile Warsaw Pact met in Hungary and declared that the military alliance was disbanded. Ever since then, NATO has been a tormented soul. That existential angst over its identity in a brave new world without an adversary is getting over.”

    “The Kremlin has released the official text of President Vladimir Putin’s remarks on the Syrian crisis. What is striking is that Putin spoke far more extensively than what the media reports suggested, and, second, he spoke on virtually every aspect of the explosive situation.”

    Certainly, Putin towers head and shoulders above other world statesmen today in taking a highly principled stance, given Russia’s involvement in Syria, knowledge of Syria and the Middle East and the big role it has been playing to cobble together Geneva 2 despite all odds.

    Right. If White is determined to be a whining City weasel he ought to do it Colin Kidd’s way, as a question:

    “Why is the unionist majority of the opinion polls not reflected in the number of ‘No’ posters seen in windows, which is pitiful? Does it indicate lack of support or a fear of broken glass?”

    http://www.lrb.co.uk/v36/n17/lrb-scotland/reflections-on-the-independence-referendum
    (a nice cross-section of opinions there, some surprisingly coherent)

    These two sum up the British character perfectly. Complain about contention, mumble your convictions, and make your moral cowardice into an indictment of the forthright faction. That is how Britain has managed to become the USA’s bumboys. The British ruling class are hopeless pussies. Let us hope that the English, Welsh, and Manx can get shot of them too.

    “Nor has there been a single instance reported of any No voter having their windows or car trashed.”

    That is completely wrong.

    A Google search will show that vandalism is occurring on both sides but don’t lie and say that there have been no reported instances of vandalism against No supporters. There was one case, widely reported on twitter with an accompanying image (@BarnesForKelvin) showing a car in Glasgow that had Yes scored on the passenger door and another instance a few months ago where a Labour councillor’s car had Yes inked on the bonnet.

    Poor Mick gets his news from twitter. And what news, look at them, just look at them, pussies crying about their precious cars. They’d never make it in America. In US elections they down your plane and it’s all water under the bridge.

    Why do we let Britain retain its P5 status? They’re sissies.

  • David Kennedy

    I have been a Guardian reader for more than 50 years and I am currently a subscriber. I valued the range of views printed, but I have become more and more disillusioned by its (extremely) biased editorials and its failure to provide balanced accounts on major issues. In particular, I dislike the dominance of the Atlanticist viewpoint and almost slavish acceptance of the US government view of the world. As an Englishman living in Scotland for the past 42 years, I have never encountered any strong prejudice against the English. Quite the contrary. We even put up with the poll tax without resorting to violence. It was the English that did that (thankfully). Needless to say I shall be voting YES, canvass for this, and hope to see an independent Scotland in the near future.

    As for media, the trick is to stop searching for appropriate outlets and start using critical reasoning.

    – THE UK MUPPET STREAM MEDIA LIES !

    What if the USUK Muppet Stream Media’s demonisation of Russian President Vladimir Putin was a pack of lies and he was actually an incorruptible patriotic Russian? No change there, then! ; )

    The Fascist US Empire’s nightmare – can’t bribe him, can’t get him to sell out his own people, can’t intimidate him.

    Unlike those gutless, spineless European puppets of the US Empire – Sarkozzi, Berlusconi, Merkel, Bildt, Hollande, Tony Bliar, Cameron and Clegg.

    Hmm – to be fair, I believe White could be reporting what voters actually have said to him.

    I canvass for Yes almost daily now and any voters showing enthusiasm rather than mere agreement are offered window posters, car stickers and the like. Many decline quoting fears such as White reports. “Not wise in this street” is a common response. I can’t breach confidentiality by telling them that most of their neighbours are voting Yes, so I just hand over a poster and suggest they put it up once they see others.

    Still, there are an awful lot more Yes windows than No windows – maybe because there are an awful lot more Yes canvassers? The Unionists are having to bus in kids from England on £25 a day + expenses.

    milliner, you seem like a well-meaning fellow, if no Einstein, so I’ll explain the world to you. You Brits are always going to be the USA’s bitch. Trident doesn’t buy you any respect – the USG spent the last ten years giving nukes to every wog in sight. The US doesn’t care if you can fight or not. Your usefulness rests on two of your national characteristics: money-laundering and pedophilia. Especially pedophilia. When you blackmail a chomo, he stays blackmailed. So keep that up and you can stay in the UNSC. As long as you do what you’re told.

    The reason why you’ve got to hang onto Scotland is not for a strong union. We like you weak. The more pathetic, the better. But we don’t want the Small Five to become the Small Six. It’s bad enough as it is. Principle, rule of law, diplomacy, peace, it’s your job to keep that shit under control, and your North is a hotbed. You Brits are to squelch any comments from the peanut gallery regarding torture, aggression, proliferation, and internationally wrongful acts. Oh, and Lockerbie.

    Is that clear?

  • Juteman

    There was someone grabbed by the throat, though.
    A poster on Wings by the name of Wee Johnny, is a window cleaner in Dundee. He posted a couple of days ago about being throttled by a shop owner in Broughty Ferry, for daring to say he was a Yes voter whilst cleaning his windows. He was wondering if he should have reported it it to the police.

    Call Me NED 6.42

    There is a lot in what you say. Your points about Trident, money-laundering, paedophilia and weakness all have some merit.

    But your “USA’s bitch” point is much more difficult. Are you not aware of the history of central banking in the whole time since USA became “independent” of the mother empire? And particularly the Federal Reserve which was founded in 1913 and is privately owned by European money powers largely based in London and their agents in the US.

    The USA was a creditor nation in 1913. It is now the biggest debtor nation that the world has ever known. Its been chewed up and spat out by the European money power. Whos the bitch?

    I tried googling and could find nothing on the incidents you claim – only the usual complaints about damage of banners in fields (happens every election) and graffiti.
