At which point have I ever commented on whether No campaigners were misbehaving? Are you suggesting that justifies the violence, intimidation and lies from the Yes campaign that you find it so hard to acknowledge did take place?
I was contrasting the well documented thuggery from the No campaigners which has resulted in action by police, with the smears against Yes campaigners which you have been completely unable to substantiate.
Fine, here's another: http://www.huffingtonpost.co.u...
He was egged by in irate local resident not a yes campaigner. Jim Sillars got egged, he suggested that he hand it in to a food bank next time and carried on.
Fucking Google the other 400 references yourself you lazy bigoted blinkered twat.
Ok, i tried Google and I got
What was that you were saying about personal attacks. You epitomise the No campaign, playing the victim when it is you who are the aggressor.
The militant yes voters physically attacking no campaigners are a figment of your imagination
See, you've just demonstrated perfectly why the 'yes' campaign failed: A personal attack on someone because they made a statement you disagreed with, while pretending the evidence that proves them correct doesn't exist - http://www.telegraph.co.uk/new...
A pro-union newspaper claiming one unnamed person was attacked but the police have no record of the incident. That is not evidence.
We saw the ugly side of nationalism finally shine through, and we saw the impact that was having.
You see dear rapiddescent, all those yes flags, all those events, coupled with the things you'd probably rather not hear about or deny ever happened such as militant yes voters physically attacking no campaigners and even splitting up families and neighbourhoods, telling people they weren't true scotsmen if they voted no
Yes we did see the ugly side of nationalism finally shine through but it was British nationalism, not Scottish. Just compare the peaceful crowds of "Yes" supporters in George Square on the eve of poll with the the terrorist supporting "No" thugs tonight. The militant yes voters physically attacking no campaigners are a figment of your imagination, unfortunately the assaults by "No" campaigners are real and several have been arrested and charged.
Salmond should rightly have been savaged by the media for repeated seemingly untrue claims he has made and the allegations of bullying, but he has certainly not been by the BBC, they've been fawning over him in half the interviews I've seen. Every claim he has made about EU membership and currency has been rebutted by everyone else involved.
Just because you chose not to believe something does not make it untrue. There were plenty of experts who supported the SNP's position on EU membership and currency. The BBC have certainly not been fawning over him, they made plenty of attempts to savage him which often backfire as with his demolition of Nick Robinson earlier this week which they cut from the broadcast.
He even implied the Queen supported Scottish independence, which is a low thing to do to someone who isn't really able to come out and express her true opinions on the matter.
He merely repeated the Queen's official position, that she was happy with either result. There have been plenty of claims in the unionist media that the Queen opposed Scottish independence.
I followed the BBC's coverage quite carefully and did not see any bias.
You missed the BBC editing out Alex Salmond spending 5 minutes answering their question then accusing him of not answering?
You didn't see the way they interviewed anyone who supported independence much more aggressively, continually interrupting anyone who supported independence but allowing others to speak freely?
The problem with have with giving 16 year olds the right to vote is that it was a one time thing. If Scottish government had come out and said that 16 is an appropriate voting age, and kept that age for all votes then that is okay.
The SNP has said that 16 is an appropriate voting age and supports keeping that age for all votes but it has no power to implement it as all other elections are covered by reserved powers.
