Wings Over Scotland


Don’t tell them your name, Pike

Posted on June 20, 2014 by

If you’re not on Twitter, readers, you’ve been missing ALL the fun today.

Above are just the creepiest two of a series of tweets posted this morning by “social justice campaigner” Mike Dailly of the Govan Law Centre – previously known to those of this parish – to the effect that he’d really rather prefer if people stopped following my personal Twitter account, @RevStu, because I was so all-around awful.

It didn’t work out quite as well as he’d hoped.

(I’ve no idea, incidentally, why he chose to pick on the personal account rather than the Wings Over Scotland one. I never talk about Scottish politics on it, and it’s usually chiefly reserved for foul-mouthed outbursts at badly-designed technology/software and useless customer service helplines.)

Ironically for a self-professed socialist and trade union fan, Dailly appeared to be suggesting that he was engaged in creating some sort of a blacklist to be circulated to the media, in which anyone who followed me would be incriminated by association.

That this is perhaps a somewhat inconsistent policy for someone who follows the Holocaust-denying ex-UKIPper and present-day loony Alistair McConnachie (see here), and extremist Loyalist nutcases Andrew Skinner and “Stronger United”, among lesser trolls, seems to have gone over Mike’s head somewhat.

The reaction online was incredible. Friends and opponents alike condemned the deeply creepy move, and there was much amusing satire, which unfortunately due to the nature of Twitter you really did have to be there to enjoy. The most striking result was that rather than decimating my personal account’s modest 2,400 followers at the start of today, at the time of writing it now stands at over 3,300.

We have of course rushed out a quick cash-in range of promotional “I’M ON THE LIST” items, which readers over-burdened with money can avail themselves of while stocks last. (Stocks will last forever.)

But the incident typifies a week that’s seen the most concerted and sustained smear attacks on this site to date. Every time the No camp and media tries to rubbish Wings Over Scotland with personal slurs against me, more and more curious onlookers come to see the freakshow for themselves, realise the impression they’ve been given is false, and in many cases stick around to read more, as seen in our readership stats.

The enemy, in short, is doing our leafleting for us.

There’s been all sorts of other high-jinks today too. Thanks, apparently, to a subversive agent within the offices of the Scotsman that we didn’t even know we had, the front cover of the print edition’s motoring section today looked like this:

scotsmanwingsmotoring

…before some killjoy spotted it and hastily replaced it for the digital version.

scotsmanwings2

And the attempted assault on our credibility (which a whiny Lib Dem site joined in with too, sending us yet more traffic) was somewhat undermined by an unexpected article on STV’s “Scotland Decides” minisite which left us spoiled for choice for pull-quotes for our next ad blurb, though it’s hard not to love “arguably the most exciting, invigorating, and innovative entrant to the Scottish media world in recent years”.

(It followed this lovely piece by Robin McAlpine on Bella Caledonia the day before.)

So this stuff’s all good for a chuckle, but such soap-opera antics shouldn’t and won’t distract from the much more important work this site does every day. In the meantime, if our Unionist pals want to keep sending more eyeballs our way to see it, with their mad bully-boy tactics and hysterical wolf-crying, far be it from us to dissuade them.

      Wheesht Stuart. You’re giving the game away!
      Tell people not to do something and what will they do?
      I’ll assume I’m oan the list?

      Take care….

    2. Ian Brotherhood says:

      Rev,

      Raising a glass to you right now. You’ve put up with an awful lot of pish from these belters lately, but don’t ever seem to get down. That’s probably what enrages them so much.

      Cheers.

      They’re quite rabid today eh? Keep at it Stu – nearly there.

      I don’t tweet but was aware of the stramash. Is he for real , create a list , for what exact purpose? I used to enjoy the muppets..

    7. Jon D says:

      Ooh yes, we are winning this by a country mile.

      This, at least, should motivate us all to be up sharp tomorrow -leafleting, canvassing and hubbing with our badges, beanies and banter.

      Let’s do this.. the finishing line is almost in sight…

    8. iclare says:

      Rather be on a list than a list maker

    9. Les Wilson says:

      Well Stu, they think you are infamous, while all the time they are helping you to achieve the opposite. Now that does sound like the BT mob!

    10. Training Day says:

      If Mr Dailly sits in a darkened bedroom compiling his list the Daily Mail will surely be on his case for evincing cybernattish behaviour..

    11. donald anderson says:

      Mike Daily is in the Labour Party and his career lies there.

    12. Another Union Dividend says:

      My apiding memory of Mike Dailly is his appearance on BBC after the 2007 Scottish elections claming that the result should be declared null and void because his belovedc Labour Party has lost power.

      And take heart as the UK media is monstering Ed Miliband as he has no chance of winning the 2015 Westminster elections.

      Please can someone reprint Ed Miliband Sun front page backing England.

      If we are honest, @theSNP are a party of cuckoos, surely? They stand for nothing except separation for the sake of it. #indyref Why?

    14. Bruce says:

      Been laughing along, all day long, at the Twitter responses. Top class wit and bemusement all over the place about “the list”. The car thing was hilarious as well. On that, couldn’t someone at the Scotsman just have calmed down and, rather than changing the headline on the online edition, just keep it the same and show, maybe, that someone there has a vestige of a sense of humour/self-awareness? That’d been nice. Peace and respect, Stu.

    15. Brian Nicholson says:

      After the barracking of Campbell Gunn, I would expect immediate calls for Mr. Dailly’s removal from all Labour party organizations. Not holding my breathe for that however, or any article in the MSM. I do hope I am proven wrong and that their remains a tiny shred of ethical journalism in the MSM.

    16. IcySpark says:

      Excellent stuff Stu. Brilliant as ever #PutMeOnMikesList is good for a laugh.

      There is no such thing as bad publicity!Never was a phrase more apt.Scotland is on the lips of our world leaders.Thanks to Cameron co and M15 for that.Obama probably couldn’t even tell you where Scotland was before the referendum.But Cameron tells us Scotland’s voice is stronger in the UK.Well if you count having a voice with an English accent then he is right.Meanwhile Wings has been in the news every day.The more they try and stop democracy the more democratic Scotland becomes.The Brits are showing all the traits of the their past which modern Scotland despises.In truth they only like us when we know our place and are invisible.Now we have the temerity to think we can run our own nation from our nation better than them they are imploding with incandescent rage.

      re Dailly’s original tweet –

      ‘…working on publishing…here we go.’

      Anyone else get the feeling that he’s been commissioned to compile this list? Or is it just something he wanted to do for the ‘national media’ out of the goodness of his heart?

      Hmmm…let’s all scratch our heids and have a richt good think. Who might be interested in commissioning such a list, and be inclined to push the gig towards Mike Dailly?

      Sheer speculation…a wee bit like ‘Fantasy Football’, but…

      Some weird shit happens in this debate and people who should know better do some daft things.

      We do have the odd McGlashan or two who take things too far (generally more daft than nasty) but Better together seem to be crafting their remaining three month strategy on a Senator McCarthy style witch hunt and smear campaign.

      If I thought it would work I might be outraged but I think this is seriously dippy and will be counter-productive.

      I suppose the other thing is the rather obvious fact that Wings seems to have really got under their skin. You do not waste so much energy on fringe group no one reads or pays any attention to.

      Calling someone an arse isn’t the best way to tackle the higher moral ground in a twitter spat on internet etiquette come to think of it.

      as someone whose been reading,Wings,from the start of the site, i must be high on the list. will need to start turning the mortice lock on my door before going to bed, now!!

    40. Davy says:

      If I am not on a bloody list I will make my own list so put that in your pipe and smoke it.

      Note to Stu, perhaps its time you re-freshed our memories of tory MSP Alex Johnstone’s comments on the Weirs, I am sure said article won’t be buried to deep.

      If the world is concerned about bad language perhaps it needs to see the reasons for it. Perhaps Alex johnstone would then like to clarify his comments.

    41. Brian Nicholson says:

      What a wonderful fundraising option for Wings and the Yes Camp. Create a t-shirt with the Wings logo at the right top, the hashtag #PutMeOnMikesList emblazoned across the bottom, and the main message ” I am SUPPORTICUS” in broad letters across the chest. Proceeds from sales to go to all the small YES campaign offices who need our help. I sure another 100,000 pounds is out there just waiting to be donated for a chance to proudly wear that shirt.

    44. HandandShrimp says:

      I should add that I am almost tempted to get a Twitter account, just so I can be on the list…but I spend enough time internets arguing on the Guardian.

      In a vague attempt to be a rounded human being and do other stuff like act as chauffeur and general dogsbody for my kids I do have to try and limit myself.

    45. Les Wilson says:

      Well there sure is a I Am Spartacus moment going on.

      This will bring a lot of bad publicity for Mike Dailly, not what he would have hoped for at all, and that is good!

      Hi Mike I am on your list expecting a chap at the door in the morning.I will have a wee cup of tea and a scone ready for you.We can discuss the main protagonists in George Orwell’s 1984.Heck we might even start a wee book club.By the way my degree in psychology might be useful for your ongoing therapy in regards to your paranoid dilusion and Stockholm syndrome.

      I did put out a Tweet today asking to be put onto his *ahem* list. Not just his usual list of suspects either. Someone had mentioned that he was creating a “nice” list and “bad” list. I asked, no that’s wrong, I begged to be put onto the BAD list! 😛

      One tiny weeny itsy bitsy problem I’ve just realised though. I didn’t tell him where I live. I’m now getting quite concerned for the poor wee chap. H’ell be going all round Arbroath looking for me and failing to do so. Remember folks I followed a request some time back to drop my moniker on here, only to find everyone else reverting to their moniker. Think I was swizzled there. 😛

      So just for you Mr Daily, cause I know you WILL be reading this article at some point. I do NOT live in Arbroath, despite my moniker indicating otherwise, I actually live down on the border with a *ahem* “foreign” country. 🙂

    54. Stewart Baillie says:

      What kind of social justice does he fight for?
      Well your obviously doing something right cos youve got them well rattled. Respect to you Stu. 🙂

    55. Big Jock says:

      If I make it to the list and it gets published.Its going up in my kitchen wall at work.Hey Mike is it going to be in the Daily Mail?Let me know I don’t usually by it but if my names in I will.You might want to give free copies to the police so they know where we are.Not sure the courts could handle that many arrests in one day mind you!

    56. Gordon Hay says:

      Dear RevStu

      I posted a tweet today pointing out the irony of the LibDem Voice article helpfully including several links to Wings articles and now LibDemVoice are following me.

      Should I be worried?

      Worried, Livingston

    57. Davy says:

      Hold your horses, does ‘arse’ rank higher than ‘scum’, is either word actually foul language, or just descriptive.

      We need a ref, where’s duggie and Craig when you need them, with their unbias bbc type of outlook on life.

      Bring out the trolls.

    58. Another Union Dividend says:

      This quote from Andrw Neill should be carved in stone:

      At the Accord Hospice charity dinner event in Paisley during 2013 Andrew Neil of the Politics Show said:-

      “Devolution, the Calman Commission, the Scotland Bill, the Edinburgh Agreement, all of this and more you have, is because Westminster parties are scared of the SNP. If you vote NO you massively change the balance of power and they will not only give you nothing, but will probably take powers away from the Scottish Parliament”.

      Honest words indeed from a committed unionist and leading expert on Westminster politics.

      And what punishment did he have in mind for us? Was he going to suggest we be tarred and feathered? Made to listen to an Alastair Darling speech? Try to make sense of a Blair McDougall soundbite?

      O/T (apologies)

      For anyone still harbouring under the illusion that Labour will win in 2015, this is from their OWN side:-

      Guardian online headline earlier today : ‘frontbenchers express fears in private that the party is heading for defeat.’…’One said : “it really does not look like we are going to win.” ‘

      When you can’t even convince your own frontbenchers that you’re a winner…. The knives are becoming increasingly sharpened for Ed. The theme of the article is if (when) Ed loses, he ain’t going to do a Kinnock & be allowed a second chance – he’ll be toast.

      Undecided Labour voters – wake up & smell the coffee.

    78. CameronB Brodie says:

      @Mike Dailly
      Thank you for that shinning example, of exactly why Scotland needs a written constitution, yah tube. Call yourself a lawyer? Your comment is intimidation, at the very least, IMO.

    79. JWil says:

      The trouble for Dailly and his ilk, who wish to strike a blow at WoS is that his posturing is a dead give away. He may as well have shouted from the top of Ben Nevis that he is scared of WOS because it tells it as it is.

      People have criticised the length of time between the announcement of the referendum and the date of the referendum, but it has proved to be a godsend as it has allowed enough time to show up the Better Together crowd for what they are, viz., vicious and manipulative.

      It seems that Salmond was smart enough to know that it would be like this and decided to give BT enough rope to hang themselves. He has outmanoeuvred his enemies again.

      BTW I remember Dailly producing a condemnatory letter, with no warning to the SNP, and with the assistance of Glen Campbell at one of the first BBC Scotland debates on the independence question. The letter was intended to be a death blow to the SNP, but here we are. This was the Glen Campbell, the unbiased BBC man, who tore up a copy of the SNP’s manifesto on the steps at the entrance to the Holyrood parliament.

      wings is slowly replacing the traditional media
      they now have no choice but to mention wings

      It was an interesting comment on the Press Review on Sky News last night. They were discussing how the public perceived Ed Miliband as a leader and concluded that he does not have the charisma that a leader needs to have now. One of the pundits said there were only three people in the UK that had the charisma for leadership in modern times. Tony Blair, Boris Johnson and Alex Salmond.

      You know what scares the shit out of me about all of this? Mike Dailly works in a Law Centre.

      I wonder if he filters out ‘undesirables’ from the clients who seek help and chooses only to work for ‘likeminded’ people.

      It’s a dark day for the voluntary sector when we’ve got people like Mike Dailly compiling lists.

      I would suggest that he needs to take a step back and understand the damage he has done to the voluntary sector and the fear he has created to those most vulnerable when seeking help and assistance from his Law Centre.

      I for one could never go into Govan Law Centre seeking help or assistance for fear of being persecuted or not being given fair treatment and advice just because I have different political views and beliefs to Mike Dailly.

      BTW Were all on a list in Cheltenham anyhoo. Rest assured that HMG aren’t that inept that they can’t get their mitts on our email addresses, but the sheer scale of the list means there’s not much they can practically do.

      HMG will have a plan B, for the failure of Project Fear however, & rig the vote. I think we have all seen enough, not just over the referendum, Iraq 2 alone told us what they are capable of, to actually assume they will try.

      I’m loving all these comments. That is our strength, it is something Mike Dailly in his wildest dreams could not even hope to emulate.

      Weren’t people being put on lists around 1936? For a lawyer to do that is astonishing, he’s acting like an idiot. They are riled and it is us that are doing the riling. Keep the pressure on, their knees are buckling.

      The more they attack the Rev, the more publicity for the site and the greater the Yes vote will be. Who’s the No campaign head of strategy? Bet he failed his O Levels.

    113. Clootie says:

      I liked it – perfect to the tune 😀

      To list, or not to list….?
      I’ll think about it while I’m on the YES stall tomorrow with some real socialists not pretendy ones like twice dailly.

    114. Big Jock says:

      Defo that’s my next concern.Its pretty easy to get agents in to lose bundles of counts.Its happened before.What can we do about that.We should never have allowed the electoral commission to oversee this.

    115. M4rkyboy says:

      It has to be the Daily Mail.
      This sort of thing is entirely consistent with their Cybernat watch thingy.

    116. Horseboy says:

      Its great, Wings getting lots mentions on MSM, allover Scotland.
      Every MSM Wings mention means more visitors.
      The truth will convert every visitors to YES.

      I was pounding Aberdeens main streets, Union Street, George Street and Holburn Street in my own full Wings TShirt, getting more TShirts & Flags printed fae WCS shop, at top o George Street.

      More grist to the mill.
      Keep going strong.

      I don’t know but the last few weeks have been just pure dead brilliant, in my view. I think we have the best of the best on this site as well as over on Twitter. Only folks like us with a forward looking vision can take such *ahem* threats and turn them into our advantage. 😛

      Big Jock that is just brilliance at its best! 😛

      Make sure you make it to the Newsroom, Edinburgh 4th July as I’d like to shake your hand.

    121. Big Jock says:

      The part Dailly has failed to grasp is that none of us care or are scared of the establishment.We are here to challenge the state.We do not defer to them the way he does.So threatening us by outing us only makes us prouder that we are a threat to the establishment.We are all important members of the campaign to democratise this great nation of ours.This is our nation not Cameron’s or Millibands play thing.We who live in Scotland will decide who we elect to run the nation.Poor Mike I do feel sorry for you if you honestly believe that sichophancy is living.Its not you are denying your own heart in such matters!

    122. Kev says:

      Can’t wait to see the visitor stats for June, should be stratospheric thanks to the No camp and their media pals,

      I think the YES Campaign answered a press query by saying the leaflet advertising among others WOS was no longer being produced (true).However I have just distributed a few hundred of them along with an advert for a businessforscotland meeting.

      Remember the British Empire survives using divide and rule. Wake up and smell the coffee!

    124. CameronB Brodie says:

      Paula Rose
      It would be nice, but I think what the Rev. is exposing, is at the nub of the indeyref debate. Civil liberties in the UK, especially the lack of them in terms of the Scottish experience. Sure, we are not under curfew or forced into labour, but does your votes count and are we represented? Where are your taxes being spent? Could your cost of living be less? How are you going to improve your circumstances, within the current system, where you have insufficient voice with which to be noticed? I think they are about to reduce the number of MPs and it would be very easy to impose further limits.

      Most of us have enough food in our bellies and beds to rest on. But is that enough? We are not wearing coloured stars, yet, but we are now getting allegedly serious individuals demanding lists.

      Is it acceptable that the British state and the MSM, work endlessly to dehumanise roughly half of Scotland’s voting public? How can politicians who call a good whack of the Scottish electorate “blood and soil nationalists”, “CYBERNATS” and a “VIRUS”, still be drawing a wage from the public purse? When will Scotland enjoy it’s first ever democratically elected government, chosen by Scots and working for Scots. Subservient to none bar the international bankers, but so is everyone else.

      I’m sure this issue will rumble on until the end. All we need to do is keep a keen eye and telling our friends what we see. I’m sure there will be plenty of policy issues to debate soon. Mind you, I’ll no guarantee they will be new. 🙂

      AYE RIGHT leaflets are the best tool we have. Get people off the MSM and onto the alternative point of view. This leaflet will be recognised as a game changer because this referendum of ours is and will be won online.

    128. Wifey4Indy says:

      I am well cheered. Just in from a friend’s 50th. All this year I have been the lone voice going on and on (and on) about Independence. Tonight they are chatting about how they feel an enthusiasm in the air and as if a tide is rising for YES.
      We just need to use all that energy and ignore the antics of the NAW side who are just getting so desparate they absolutely have to shoot the messenger!

    131. Defo says:

      Big Jock, I doubt we would be short of volunteers if someone were to organise monitoring it on the day. Look at the response of WoSsers monitoring PFs rail away day.

      What would the effect be on the minds of the voters, to see that some were so concerned by the unionist/establishment conduct during the last couple of years, that they thought it necessary at all ?

      Exactly famous 15.Some of us nearly fell for the divide and rule tactics in the last week.I think the people on here have shown that with solidarity comes truth.I dare say we might even have lost a couple but gained a thousand in their place.There are some slagging of the Yes campaign and again I say don’t go down that road.There are many different organisations with many different styles.But we are all on the same bus.Where our nation goes after that is down to us.Don’t fall off the bus before it gets to the platform we need you all.

    134. David Wardrope says:

    135. Ian Brotherhood says:

      What ‘Yes Scotland’ says in press releases and replies to written queries/complaints is one thing.

      What the volunteers in ‘Yes’ shops spend hundreds of hours preparing, folding, and delivering day to day? is another.

      Words/actions – not to be confused.

    136. Famous15 says:

      Someone should ask the Govan Law Centre what politics,religion,race,temperament,level of politeness or sexual orientation one must be before advice is dispensed. And if it is will one’s name be on a list?

    137. Oneironaut says:

      I’d better be on the list!

      I’m even a proper technologically-advanced cybernat and everything! 😀

      Also does anyone know if Mike is willing to give away signed copies of the list with particular names highlighted?

      Just so I can frame it and hang it on the wall as proof that I was on the list.
      I can keep it with the rest of my growing collection of souvenirs of this campaign, so that in the independent Scotland of the future, I can stare at them, all misty-eyed and nostalgic, and think of the fond memories of the days when I was apparently important enough to be on someone’s list 🙂

    138. B.Bomb says:

      Since I read an article on the Courier’s website the other night that accused this site of being a disgrace blah blah blah, I decided to see what all the fuss was about.

      You now have one very enthusiastic new regular. I will direct everyone and anyone who is either waivering or just needs that little bit more convincing to pay these very pages a visit.

      I was always going to vote “YES”. I was always going to vote with my heart. Now after discovering this and many other great sites online over the last few days, I now have the knowledge to vote with my head as well.

      Great stuff.

      http://www.scotsman.com/news/scotland/top-stories/english-shop-won-t-stock-scots-food-after-yes-vote-1-3452354

      If the boot was on the other foot, say perhaps like a lad over in Brazil enjoying the football with his Uruguayan friends, then this would be all over the BBC news website.

    144. Andrew Morton says:

      My favourite quote from the STV report was,

      “Other blogs shoot from the hip; Wings shoots its targets in the hip.”

      I followed the Dailly list thing most of the afternoon on a Twitter. I always had my doubts about the man, particularly over the whole unsavoury Bedroom tax scam that a SLAB were working to make the SG look bad, but this list business is just unhinged.

      Re the divide and rule issue, some Yes Tweeters seemed to be losing the plot and I had to momentarily block someone who was getting irate so that we didn’t come to blows. I unblocked him again shortly afterwards. My son was until recently the Head of Press at the Labour Party in London and I learned from him that it’s not about being proved ‘right’, it’s about minimising damage and moving on to push your main message.

    145. Thepnr says:

      List!

      A scary word. Your on the list! Not only are you on it your at the top of the list just under Stuart Campbell.

      Oh Dear, how do I get off Mr Daillys list, beg for forgiveness maybe. Join the No campaign and show I’m reformed?

      Or just say fuck it and vote Yes when all these lists will be torn up and we start afresh with a brand new country.

      A country with its own rules, values and even a constitution. What worth your list then Mr Dailly?

    146. Vronsky says:

      I’ve sent Mike my full personal details with a request to be included on his list. Oh, c’mon, I don’t get many chances to be counted as respectable.

    147. Lesley-Anne says:

      What lovely reporting M4rkyboy from our beloved Daily Mail…NOT! Another fine example of the Daily Mail doing what it does best confusing the story instead of investigating the story.

      Will it mean that anyone on it will have their posts on MSM sites deleted? Do they have the staff numbers for that? What will happen to the clicks without us?

      is a sad, sad state of affairs.

      Scotland has always been bedevilled with people with holier than thou beliefs that have undermined Scotland at every opportunity.

      Recent events have shown this to be alive and kicking.

      A classic example of this and what might have been happened at the Battle of Dunbar in 1650 when a larger and well equipped and fed Scottish Army was defeated by a small weekened and starving Cromwell led Army because of the catastrophic actions of Presbyterian Ministers weeding out and sending home all of the very best fighting soldiers and leaders because they didn’t fit the profile of piety the Ministers wanted in their Army.

      The following passage from an account of the battle speaks volumes about what happened:-

      “It appears that General Leslie’s tried and true guerrilla strategy had been summarily overruled earlier in the day by the impatient Covenanter ministers’ committee from Edinburgh. The men of the cloth accompanied the Scottish commander to the top of Doon Hill, only to bury their heads in the religious sand. In mid-August, the Covenanters pressed Charles II to issue a public statement attacking his mother’s popery and his late father’s bad counsel. Charles refused and watered down his declaration considerably before making it public. The Covenanters went berserk and took their revenge by shooting themselves in the foot. They launched a purge of the Scottish army, starkly reminiscent of Josef Stalin’s ideological purges of the Soviet Union’s Red Army during the 1930s. More than 3,000 of General Leslie’s best professional soldiers including many of his officers were peremptorily dismissed from the army and sent home for such unforgivable sins as loose morals and swearing in public. One angry Scottish colonel said the Covenanters left Leslie with an army of “nothing but useless clerks and ministers’ sons, who have never seen a sword, much the less used one.””

      John, I see the Union Jack luvvin Morrisons Supermarket is axing over 2500 jobs because of falling sales.

      This is the company that covers it’s supermarkets with Union Jacks, plays England football songs over the tannoy and hands out leaflets for the Better Together campaign.

      And they wonder why their sales are falling in Scotland.

      Lidl and Aldi were found to be taking most of their customers.

      So, if you like to do your shopping in a Union jack plastered supermarket while listening to “Three Lions On Your Shirt” (England football team anthem), then Morrisons is for you.

      Alternatively, more pleasant and cheaper supermarkets are out there.

      With each passing day the ‘Great’ in GB is more and more diminished and tarnished.

      Through the ongoing Referendum debate, the Unionist Establishment continues to reveal it’s true colours, which are not to be found in it’s lofty and primary symbol, the union flag, but rather in the indescribable colours of raw union sewage spewed out from every institutional oriface.

      We are all surely undergoing a re-education about the kind of people who run this country and their unionist followers.

      For many decades we have seen the unnacceptable face of Unionism in NI but we on the mainland thought of that as being ‘over there’.
      Now we know , it’s over here as well.

      Bare faced and defiant in NI, Unionism in the rest of the UK has worked relentlessly on it’s public image so as to present a nicer picture.

      But the fixer has degraded and the true colours of the Establishment can now be clearly seen.

      Disgustingly greedy, anti-democratic, pompous and superior, and barely disguising a mindset in which the ending of slavery is seen as a mistake.
      At least, judging by the way the poor and the working classes are treated by Government in the UK today, one could easily be forgiven for thinking so.

      Hopefully this will all result in an ‘awakening’ for Scots, but also for the Welsh, the regional English and the good people of NI, though I suspect the N Irish have already completed their education at the hands of the British Establishment.

      Perhaps, as one thing leads to another after the fashion of falling dominoes, the result will truly be the end of the ‘Empire’ and the beginning of a new political structure in the UK.
      Such a change will not happen overnight, nor without suffering, but the writing is now definitly on the wall and the dominoes have already begun to fall.
      An age of change is upon us.
      The Referendum, it’s flag bearer.

      I’m voting Yes.

      My re-education is almost complete.

      And the new colours ?

      Independence and self-determination for Scotland.

      Aye.

To effectively politicise it and use it as a vehicle for shoring up the neo liberal consensus is grotesque. I am sure Mike Dailly has declared republican tendencies and has quoted current SNP policy on the monarchy as one of his many reasons not to support YES. If he is real republican YES is the only way to go.

      “seems like I fell into the Daily Mails trap of assuming they were talking about Stu when they mentioned his English accent, but they were talking about that Irish guy from Blackpool,

      But that’s what they wanted people to think isn’t it?”

      Yes I read your bit and then went to the attached DM link, on another posting, and that’s the confusion the wanted to spin. The had to get 2 Campbell’s living in England, with soundbites against JKR etc al, to do that and that’s what they found.

      The Westminster controlled MSM are trolling on Iraq like never before to try and hide like never before their part in the Iraq human crisis. Lies, videotape, secretcy and lie.Westminster Unionists greedy and corruption.

      See through it. Give Iraq back it’s Oil or they will take it back through force. Foreign tax evaders have killed, maimed and harmed too many Iraqis.

      The terrorists were funded by the West’s best friend Saudi, Qatar. The most despot, absolute monarchies in the world. The MSM ‘Islamist militants’ pitch is another smoke screen for starving desperate people without food/fuel in a land of plenty.

      100 years of Western (Britain/France/US) meddling in the Middle East. Balfour Agrreement, partition, Oil grabs, Tax evasion.

    246. Grouse Beater says:

      The only downside of Wings dynamic skills is its founder and editor will be lost to us post-independence, offered an editor’s post in Scotland which he’d be daft not to accept. Let’s hope it’s a new daily newspaper…

    247. Grouse Beater says:

      “will be lost to us”

      Well, perhaps that’s a contradiction. Then again, there’s a big difference editing a blogsite you own, to editing a newspaper with many staff you don’t.

    248. Kalmar says:

      The daily mail story today is hilarious! Their heart just isn’t in it any more, it’s pretty weak as ministering goes – I think even a few DM readers might have a chuckle at some of the quotes and go and look for themselves.

      Yeah it’s all good I reckon.

      Not far off reality with that video.

      Also, on yesterdays warmongering, scaremongering English News, they were showing an actual recruitment video for ISIS, they were wanting more Brits to come on over to Iraq and join in.

      Did the UK Government not put a ban on that video being shown?

      “I am well cheered. Just in from a friend’s 50th. All this year I have been the lone voice going on and on (and on) about Independence. Tonight they are chatting about how they feel an enthusiasm in the air and as if a tide is rising for YES.
      We just need to use all that energy and ignore the antics of the NAW side who are just getting so desparate they absolutely have to shoot the messenger

      Well done, Wifey, I am sure you will have a lot to do with their conversion!

      It must have been cheering because I am sure you would have to be up early this morning for your next engagement in the battle for “hearts and minds”. Sorry I can’t be there.

      Have a good day – just made sure I am on Mr Dailly’s list and waiting for a t-shirt to confirm it 🙂

    254. Archie [not Erchie] says:

      @ Grousebeater – But did you read in the DM article that our Rev uses the title to differentiate him from a jailed murderer of the same name? Talk about innuendo and inference! Great photo of the Rev mind you.

      @ Castle Rock
      “Mike Dailly works in a Law Centre.” The GLC is a Registered Charity , it’s funded in part by I believe Glasgow City Council He has close ties to the council,
      However the legal work carried out GLC is done through the legal practice of “Dailly & Co., Solicitors we undertake expert advice, court and tribunal representation in Scotland.”
      I could be wrong but a couple of years ago there maybe was an accountancy issue with a consumer forum

      Rev Stu.

      Again brilliant article and some great comment’s with a lot of humour as usual. Scottish humour at it’s best.

      The STV piece is my highlight of the week and your quote above “(Though it’s hard not to love “arguably the most exciting, invigorating, and innovative entrant to the Scottish media world in recent years”.)” from them is the very reason all the rest are out for you.

      Simple truth is you are just too good. Thank god you’re on our side, otherwise most of the mis-truths being spouted by the No campaign and the msm would never get the de-bunking it deserves, for the balance it bring to the debate, which we know is sadly lacking in the campaign proper.

      The fact, that you manage to do this almost single handed goes to show how clever, and how hard working you are.

      We all appreciate your work and I salute you.

      PS Add me onto Dailly’s list.

      PPS I take it the Scotsman had to remove that title from their motoring headline page for fear of breach of copyright.

      Sports update,

      Who’d be an English sports fan?

      You are at rock bottom because your football team got kicked out of the World Cup due to not winning any games.

      So you decided to get up early the next morning and watch the English Rugby Team play the All Blacks down under in New Zealand.

      Well what do you know, New Zealand have only gone and gubbed your rugby team as well.

      It was a three match series and new Zealand have just gone and white washed England 3-0. So, New Zealand get to keep England and put them up on the mantle piece.

      Cheer up England, look to the skies and you can watch your wee Prince Wills’ flying about in his new helicopter that his granny bought him.

      What?

      Just sayin.

      If you have any tears left from laughing at no campers and how do 55 million people feel “abandoned” anyway. They had a good run but nothing;s forever…

      By 2017 it’s perfectly possible that England could find itself almost alone, abandoned by Scotland and outside the European Union. It might cling to Wales and Northern Ireland, but how long before those nations too thought about going their own way?

      It’s easy to get carried away. But these are times of uncertainty for England, unsure who its partners are, where its borders end, even what song to sing. Those 11 young men carried quite a burden on Thursday night. We wanted them to know us better than we know ourselves.

      Jings, I am running out of hankies; so emotional….

      “Nobody loves me, everybody hates me, think I’ll eat worms all day…”

      Humility seems to be the hardest thing.

    261. Grouse Beater says:

      Heedtracker: But these are times of uncertainty for England

      Rather like their Team GB Fitba.

      Commentators keep expressing amazement over how small in population is Uruguay and then questioning why they have a great football team, as if small means without talent.

      This is the inference; they equate power with skill and talent. Hence the inane mindset Scotland is too small for self-governance.

      The shock to them is, big, mighty England has a crap team. Could it have anything to do with uncertainty of identify: British – English? If so, now is the time to define it.

    262. Jim Marshall says:

      This Mike Dailly geezer would no doubt assist his conspirator pal and mentor Ian Davidson in “bayonetting the wounded”. Come to think of it, where is Davidson these days. He seems to have dropped out of sight.

    263. Training Day says:

      Heh.. The best thing about that regurgitated article in the newspaper which supported Mosely is the touching faith the commenters below the article have in the veracity of what they’re being told.

      Bless their little hearts, they really do believe what the Daily Mail is telling them.

    264. john j says:

      The piece by Stephen Daisley on the STV News website is excellent. I have always been a bit of a TV snob where STV is concerned but their devolution coverage is beginning to wipe the floor with the BBC’s increasingly pro-union stance, that ‘Scotland 2014’ programme! I ask you.

      Welcome B BOMB and any new readers. Great news to hear so many new Wings foot soldiers. We are winning , thats for sure.

      What a start to the day. Love the comments. Finally got to bottom and had to add , Well done Stu. Well done all Wings readers.

      If there are any undecided out there , have a wee scroll through the pages and comments and see why we have that “smug smile ” on our faces . We know we’re winning the unionists know we’re winning and fair play to STV who bucked the trend and Praised Stu and the Wings community .

      I was a wee bit worried about our cause last month. The msm where on full alert with their lies and spin. Oh it’s oh so different now. We are an unstoppable force now.

      Role on the 19th so we can have a wee day off and party.

    272. Kryczek says:

      Mainstream media need not embrace Stuart Campbell but it cannot afford to ignore him or the challenges he (and the blogosphere in general) poses to journalistic practice.

      It’s guy’s like the rev and other’s that are showing them how to do it.

      Cheer’s.

      Apologies if you think me picky re. the “Aye Right” leaflet. Just so there is no confusion, I think these are the best. The STV quote definitely adds weight and authority. However, I’m not happy with the typesetting. ;(

      The bottom line of text on the reverse, should match up with the bottom of the text on the front page. Either edit the preamble or reduce the font size of the strap, or both. This won’t only smarten things up, it will also provide a margin of error for the guillotine operator. Just sort it out. 🙂

      100 years of Western (Britain/France/US) meddling in the Middle East. Balfour Agreement, partition, Oil grabs, Tax evasion.

      Not only chief author of the Balfour Declaration of 1917, Alfred Milner, 1st Viscount Milner, was also a the founder of what became known as “Milner’s Kindergarten”. He was a self professed Fabian socialist, as were many in his clique of imperialist governors. These are the guys that shaped the ‘downsizing of an empire’, as well as the early British Lanour party, culminating in the 1931 marriage of British Labour and the Tories. They have danced an erratic quadrille ever since, so as not to let on what goes on in private.

      Was Mike Dailly Brahms & List when he was tweeting yesterday?!

      Far from being scary any more, the NO side are turning into Comedy Central.
      Mikado Doyle and his Gilbert & Sullivan inspired little list; Anas Sarwar and his big bendy battle bus; Jim F-Word Murphy and his 100 ginger crates delivery round; they are so useless it’s hilarious!

    281. David says:

      thanks to kenneth grant had a wee look at the twit stuff ! this guy is a Lawyer well i would have never have guessed a lawyer would put what he tweeted makes you wonder what credentials are required to practice law in scotland now.well i guess i am guilty by association of following wings over scotland as well now.I tried wikipedia for the term blacklist it seems to indicate to compile a list in order to deny a person somthing its to long to list here but it doesn’t seem to indicate wishing someone well and good health there is a specific link to trade union blacklists this guy seems to indicated he is a human rights lawyer and trade unionist a very strange way of showing off your credentials just a thought

    285. Grendel says:

      I love the cheeky Scotsman mention of WOS. I managed to slip past the censors in my local rag a few weeks back when I said that there would be “pigs with wings over Scotland before Ed Milliband became PM”…

      More power to you!

    286. Siobhan Tolland says:

      I think the whole cybernat issue and the increasingly personal attacks on you Stuart are a sign that, increasingly, No are realising the areas of threat to them in this referendum. Wings over Scotland is excellent, informative and honest and this is precisley why it has become a source of attack. As Mary Brooksbank once said, ‘scream through their yellow press, vituperation, their tirade’s their measure, now great is their fear’.
      The saddest thing here, however, is that is has initiated an internal fight within Yes and that potentially serves to split us. Robin McAlpine was correct; instead of allowing No to put us on the defensive and apologise for behaviour really we should never have been apologising for, we should have stayed united and pushed the propaganda back onto them. We can win independence if we are united, not if we allow No to set the agenda.

    287. Stevie says:

      Desperately tried to get my name on his list but I’m mortally crap at twitter and couldn’t get on – don’t laugh. Still, in the end, I’ve come to the conclusion that he’s a bit mental and is probably best left alone in a quiet place where life doesn’t intrude.
