Response to Bad Dog (Reply #58)

59. But if you listen back to what you've just typed, I could retaliate that it sounds like Scotophobia!

So the media cherrypicked some outspoken interviewees that would make a splash - is that a surprise? Exactly two newspapers in Scotland supported Yes during the referendum, and none of the broadcast media, and a similar pattern applied during the last general election. As for the portrayal of the SNP in the wider UK - and by association, people like me and those I know - just wow!

Christalmighty, did you hear some of the crap being spouted about us by "English" people during the same period? It's practically a national sport.

This disjunct is one reason why it's very hard to discuss goings-on up here with people who don't live here. And why the hell shouldn't Sturgeon be honest about what - mistakenly - people assumed would be the prospects of a hung parliament? If Labour hadn't gone along with the demonizing of the SNP in the first place, they might have a bit more sympathy from me. As it is, they were hoist with their own petard, and we're all suffering for it.

As for shipyards, I could show you a few that have been shafted in Scotland, despite Better Together's threats and promises. Blame us, why don't you? Tell me again about divide and rule?

And as for Labour, it's doing just fine in that project of decline without any help from the Tories or the SNP ... You'll maybe note from my other posts on this group that I support Labour, and even Corbyn, more than many when I see anything positive from them. That's not a unique point of view up here. The pity is that such opportunities are so thin on the ground. I also doubt you've ever seen me post anything favourable to the Tories. If they do something I approve of, maybe I'll do so. Hah.
