Point of order Ms K was born in Italy. Her link to Scotland was being brought up in Glasgow and then reading History at Edinburgh Uni.

I was born in Singapore, don't make me Malayan. I then spent my early years and first school in the Gold Coast (soon to become Ghana), don't make me African.

LK born to Scottish parents with a bit of furrin on the paternal side ancestry, but she is a Weegie.

Heh.

Were she Italian, she would be better able to recognise a true far-Right party.



NB: This is as true today as it was in the 1930s, just for reference; despite all the rubbish spouted, unlike numerous other European countries the UK doesn't have a far-Right party in mainstream politics.

As in, 'Just because you're born in a stable doesn't make you a horse'.
 
The two articles opened up today in the BBC’s fight against Johnson/Government/Brexit... The first:

The biggest Covidiots in our country - Johnson, Cummings, Hancock, Williamson, Patel. Anyone see the common denominator

Cause - years of under funding by successive Tory governments. We should be ashamed of this.

Keep going BBC... This railing against a government you don’t like shit is what the licence tax was intended for...
 
The second article has really got the dribbling moon howlers out in force...

MPs should not be salaried if they have another generous source of income. They are there to serve their constituents and there country. Being an MP is a privilege they volunteer to do. Sadly it’s become the most lucrative of temporary jobs.

Aye, but how does she identify herself. No one would choose to be Scottish would they?
 
I wonder how many of those comments are generated within the walls of New Broadcasting House.
That is a fair comment... The BBC knows its audience and that is why we never see articles that may attract pro Brexit or pro government/pro Johnson opened up for Have Your Say.

On the rare occasion they get a response leaning away from their agenda, HYS is taken down fairly quickly.
 
Although he apparently never said it, I believe it was said of him by Daniel O'Connell (I only discovered this myself a few weeks ago).
In that case

Daniel O'Connell walt.
