What passes for subtlety

Posted on September 12, 2014 by

Former Labour spindoctor Charlie Whelan in the Strathspey & Badenoch Herald:

whelan

Click to enlarge as Whelan segues seamlessly from terrible Scottish “nationalism” to racial genocide in Auschwitz, because, you know, Yes voters are all basically Nazis*.

*George Galloway’s comments (made in his capacity as a nominated representative of “Better Together”) from yesterday’s BBC “Big Big Debate” were edited out of the broadcast version. We’re sure it was just to keep the running time tight.

    1. Seasick Dave says:

      Its designed to be provocative; just ignore.

    2. kendomacaroonbar says:

      More shock and naw ?

    3. andy says:

      I have noticed a lot of no campaigners seem to keep bringing up the Nazis and Auschwitz (though they rarely spell it right).
      I don’t really understand why. But then they are running out of scary things to say and Nazis are pretty scary. Maybe next will be BetterTogether – because ghosts are terrifying.

    4. cadgers says:

      What a loathsome man.

    5. fletch49er says:

      He says it himself he doesn’t unederstand, “why on earth Scots would want to break away from such a sucessful union.”

      ‘Successful Union’, not any more it’s not

      I’ll leave it at that.

    6. Doug Daniel says:

      I bet he’s thinking “I’m soooo clever, this is so subtle.” What an arse.

      As for Galloway, I think they also edited out him saying “we’ve heard enough from the ladies”, or words to that effect. Either that or I just missed him saying it. Patrick Harvie certainly referred to it in one of his answers, and I was a bit puzzled until I read later what Galloway had actually said.

      For me the subtlety was lost a long time ago when the legal opinion from ” dahn saff ” from Crawford and Boyle said that in 1707 Scotland was ” extinguished “.

      Can’t really believe though at this late stage this sort of abuse is being peddled – says something about the people who’ll take time to read the piece.

    9. Big Steve Chisholm says:

      I think the Gandhi quote needs updating –

      First they ignore you,
      then they laugh at you,
      then they rig the polls,
      then they make up stories,
      then they call you Nazis,
      and THEN you win.

    10. Stu says:

      At least it was only the Strathspey & Badenoch Herald, but what a disgraceful article.

    11. Colin says:

      Thank goodness, if my wife and I don’t get called Nazis at least once a week we begin to feel like Cameron’s big society isn’t working and nobody cares about us.

      Nothing about the 10,000 Orange Order and UKIP storm troopers marching through Edinburgh this weekend trying to intimidate people in to voting no.

    12. JLT says:

      Pravda is alive and well in 2014. Orwell was right. This is getting more like 1984 with each passing day.

    13. benarmine says:

      It really will take time to recover from the referendum when we have so many anti-democratic, intemperate asses like this that we have to forgive while we get on with building our old nation anew. I for one won’t forget though.

    14. Indy_Scot says:

      The BBC is an affront to democracy and free speech.

    15. Macart says:

      Leave them to their sewer. They’re happy playing in the crap by themselves.

      Let’s keep talking to people and win this. 🙂

    16. Greannach says:

      Nice to see that Highlander, Charlie Whelan, likes going home. I’m trying to remember if this is the guy who was an adviser to Gordon Brown and who – on being asked if Labour were worried about the effect of their policies on the poorest – responded, “Nah, they don’t vote”.

      A nice Highland attitude there.

    17. dramfineday says:

      If Whelan and Galloway imagine that I am a Nazi,I would imagine that that makes them Holocaust deniers. Comfortable in forgetting, and thereby denigrating, the dead to make cheap jibes.

      Cheap – just about sums them up.

    18. galamcennalath says:

      Just all highlights what stands in the way of Scotland’s road to democracy … Dark forces!

    19. heedtracker says:

      One more really desperate ligger but why do the liggers keep calling Scottish democracy and Scotland running Scotland a fascist divorce and why are they so desperate to stop an actual democracy in Scotland anyway? Will it hurt them or will it be good for Scotland?

      Honestly, I don’t see him making a comparison.
      As I see it this is a three-point column, like the horrid whatsername’s in The Daily Hate Mail.
      So first Scotland, then Auschwitz, because he is in Poland, and then at the end a gripe about internet speed and cost.

    27. Alasdair Reid says:

      Can we crowdfund a doctoral student to prepare a thesis on the media’s ‘performance’ in the referendum ? This would also help to counter the stupid No camp’s claims that higher education funding would fall in iScotland…

    28. john king says:

      @Gillian Ruglonian

      If you’ve never been to a protest at PQ dont worry, you’ll not meet a nicer bunch of people than the protesters who go to the protest,

      come up and introduce yourself Gillian I’ll be in or around the (INEVITABLE) Wings stall with a tshirt advertizing wings, (you wont miss it). 🙂

    29. yerkitbreeks says:

      @ Alasdair Reid There will be masses of what the Americans call ” Monday morning quarter backing ” and most of it will certainly dwell on the dirty tricks department – yesterday’s RBOS debacle being typical.

    30. desimond says:

      I feel the class of the piece is summed up with a “Free WI-FI’ advert in the middle of such a sad image.

      In the balance of the Universe, the number of people telling us we are silly to leave this ‘glorious’ Union will be perfectly balanced out by the band-wagon jumpers who will instantly change their for-sale opinion and shout “Always here if you need me for advice dear Caesar! Mata”.

    33. msean says:

      This is why we need ‘seperation’ or ‘divorce’ or ‘break up’ in a nutshell.The NAW campaign seem to be spending all their time firefighting,trying to present as fact a reality that does not exist because this time the poor WIL be voting.

      All this media stuff is to try and herd the poor into not bothering to vote yes by creating the myth that they have already lost,to present this myth as fact. They fear the poor and their votes as should any government.

    34. Gillian_Ruglonian says:

      John, I was at the one during the commonweath games, and I’m currently organising a wee group of pals for Sunday. We’re all so busy canvessing and whatnot that we are treating it as a wee day off! I’ll definitely seek you out, and regards MI5 that was just a wee joke they’d probably be as subtle as the secret service guy in Taxi Driver anyway!!

    35. Dave McEwan Hill says:

      I would like to think that supporters of independence in Strathspey demand an apology from the newspaper.

      On the latest YouGov poll I would think it is likely that last weeks YouGov poll was crafted to allow them to show a drop in support for YES in yesterday’s poll.
      They can produce any result they like by their very flexible weighting.

      48% is still over 10 points up on the YouGov poll in early August and their credibility is at stake so they have to be in the vicinity of the final result at this stage. They did this in 2011 having shown us miles behind for much of the campaign

      I would also say that a YouGov poll showing us at 48% means we win. An astute person said to me yesterday that we should be confident. “The train has already left” he said “and the destination is not in doubt”

    36. muttley79 says:

      Charlie Whelan is just one of those in the Labour Party (or formerly in it) who have smeared the Yes campaign with the Nazis/fascists tag. I see Duncan Hothersall continues this nonsense with his tweet today about Yes getting the vote out by saying it is anti-democratic, that is just a sneaky way of getting the fascist/Nazi smear in. How the fuck can it be anti-democratic to organise for Yes supporters to get to the polling stations and vote?! They really are in a massive panic.

    37. GrahamB says:

      Perhaps it was just an unfortunate juxtaposition of two unrelated articles but you’d have to be very naïve to believe that. He is correct about recovery time from the referendum however. If the result is NO it won’t go away but YES or NO, the NO voters who have been duped will be forgiven but all those liars who duped them will never be forgiven.
      More lies through the letter box this morning in the form of a “Scottish” Labour NO booklet. Usual rubbish with lies about pensions prominent, but the good news is there is a Freepost address on it so bundle up your recycling papers and post to

    45. M J Grant says:

      Right, that comment about no Europeans understanding why Scots want independence needs a bit of rebuffing:

      I live in Berlin, travel a lot to international conferences, and talk to people a lot about Scottish independence. If people don’t understand the motivation, it’s generally because they don’t really understand the political set-up in general in the UK, and overstate the role of the monarchy. Otherwise, they may not understand the motivation for independence, but generally ask about it, are interested, and listen intently. Once I have explained that it is not about nationalism, is not a right-wing movement, and that there are food banks in Britain for families who are too poor to feed themselves, that we don’t want the nuclear weapons we are forced to have, and are fairly pro-European, they generally get the point.

      Then they get excited about the political implications and say “Oh, that’s interesting, there’s so little comment on it in the media in my country” at which point I now reply, “It could be worse, you could have the BBC”.

      The early Naws are now having some regrets them, hmm, let me think. I recall Darling and others saying that people should get their postal votes in early, particularly the first batch that was sent out. Being a cynic, is that because they knew there would be a full scale assault on the democratic process, and that they wanted soft No’s to commit to vote early, thereby not having an opportunity to change their minds?
      We still have 5 days and 20 hours to go before the polls open, brace yourself as there is more, much more to come.

    50. Robert Louis says:

      Let’s get out and win this referendum . Doing so, is THE single most effective means of defeating the British Media, the BBC, the corruption of Westminster. Whinging about it will achieve nothing. It is quite clear, the BBC couldn’t give a flying you know what about how Scots regard them.

      I just hope YES supporters ignore Farage today. He is not here to win votes, he is here to stir up trouble, so the media can blame ‘that alicsammin’. Likewise the Orange Lodge. Both designed to kick up trouble, to be blamed on YES group. This is how the british establishment work. There will be agents provocateurs everywhere, trying to goad YES supporters into reacting.

      Meanwhile, Scotland is on the up, despite the London media lies and corruption, people have realised they CAN have a better future if the people of Scotland are running our affairs, instead of the Westminster elite in the South East of England.

      O/T

      The guy with the imperial march music in Glasgow yesterday, deserves a medal. These pompous, self-centred, conceited and arrogant Labour troughing MP’s coming up from Westminster to Scotland to tell us how to vote, need ridiculed. So thanks to whoever did it. Time we stopped taking these Labour clowns seriously. 🙂

      No mention of the fact that we could become far MORE prosperous, backed by our huge resources !!

      Like you say, I don’t think he’ll be short of a pint for a while!
      I think that the reason that kind of action works so well is because it’s in good humour so any opposition looks even more ridiculous. I echo the sentiments going around about ignoring farage though, cos attention of any kind is exactly what he craves!

    62. desimond says:

      @GrahamB

      Thats a great point. I dont think anyone minds anyone voting NO, to each their own and a YES voter would simply ask “WHY would you?” and then listen to answer and agree to disagree etc

      BUT for those in The Establishment who will NEVER be forgiven the question is: “HOW could you?”

      I likened Scottish Labour to Freddo in the Godfather last night on Twitter, someone else suggested WormTongue from Lord of Rings trilogy. Im sure theres many more examples.

    63. GrahamB says:

      Bummer! Prof Curtice just been interviewed outside his house again, he stays just along at the corner of my street. It is beside the bottle bank and I had a few empties to get rid of but I was not quick enough as he finished about 20 seconds before I could get to it. Still the cameraman did get some good shots of the YES stickers in the windows including a 2m by 1m one at one of my neighbour’s.

    64. Luigi says:

      Did anyone hear the manic Farage mechanic on the radio? I missed it.

      You didn’t miss much. The Naughty man gave him an incredibly easy time. What any decent reporter would do is ask him if he agrees with the three stooges that Scotland should be given more powers. He may be keeping quiet about this now but he will soon be going back to England and his first line of attack will be that the stooges must not spoil those subsidy junkies in North Britain any more.

    65. Gillian_Ruglonian says:

      @ Nana Smith,

      Are we all agreeing to adopt the “imperial masters” shorthand as demonstrated by yourself, cos I can’t help but smirk every time the phrase runs through my head. It could just be the collective tonic we need to see us over the finish line!

      what is it with these people and their fixation on Nazi stuff
      and anyway who cares what this bawbag has to say anyway ,hello numpties earth calling come back to ground zero we believe you have been licking the windows to long.

    68. Paul Murphy says:

      I don’t have a problem with that BBC article by Robert Peston (its especially moderate compared to some of the clear bias shown the BBC in recent months). Once again it helps to read the whole thing – he does make it quite clear that the whole point is that a future Scottish Government would have the powers (if independent) to manage its own economy – if it chose to make decisions which kept the regular prices at supermarkets down, it could do so, likewise it could work to increase the living wages so that the price of a regular shop would remain in line as a % of average wages.

      I do worry that rather than brand everything as scaremongering and try to dismiss it (which must get to some people, and certainly doesn’t appease people who crave details) the Yes campaign might try to say “yes that’s a good point, certain things might go up, however due to x,y,z any additional costs would be more than mitigated”

      In other words rather than saying someone’s wrong, we can accept their argument and re-assure the voting public that its already been considered and either we have plans for it or give the upside. Same could be said for the banking – as already pointed out, reduced exposure to banking meltdowns if they all flit south of the border.

      This approach can often render the other side completely impotent, and seems to be working with the whole “oil dependency” track (i.e we either have lots, or lots and lots – either way it’s a benefit)

    69. Brian Powell says:

    70. heedtracker says:

      It is rather strange being called a nazi for voting YES to democracy in Scotland and by socialist workers like labour stand in George Galloway or a reprobate like Wheelan but if you’re in the mood for some more UKOK disorientation, connect up Bradford Respect party Galloway’s fantasy economics as he’s boosting up super rich bettertoghter oil tycoons like Ian Wood.

      http://www.tatler.com/news/articles/september-2014/the-future-of-scotland

      Given the fairly feudal distribution of land in Scotland, you can perhaps see why the big landowners are nervous. Cries for independence and modernisation from more urban Scots in Glasgow and Edinburgh have rattled them. New Scotland is probably safer. Not only are they insulated by their immense wealth, the fact that they’re foreign means they can’t be blamed for notorious historical events like the 18th- and 19th-century clearances when peasants were forced off their land. But Old Scotland is definitely panicked, as if they can already hear the tumbrils approaching. ‘England used to be our Auld Enemy,’ says a worried Scottish peer. ‘Now we really must stick together.’

    71. GrahamB says:

      KaMate at 1058:
      Anyone manage to get the earlier version of the Guardian before the “erroneous reference to David Miliband” was edited out?
      They did not want to be seen as a crocodile, maybe Miliband’s Millipede would have been appropriate.

Of course white settler Charlie Whelan was part of the war mongering Blair/Brown cabal and is responsible for the 100’s of thousands of deaths of various brown people. But always nice to hear about genocide from an expert.

    76. desimond says:

      @Paul Murphy

      Its a fair overall point but is it fair when David Cameron calls up Supermarket chain heads and calls in favours for them to get scare stories out there? Aldi, Lidl and even Tesco are laughing their heads of at this nonsense.

      Also to be fair, the YES Team have always said this is no easy road trip into the Land of Paradise and even concede that mistakes will be made along the way but I dont think they need to be considerate at such pathetic scare ploys.

    77. ailsa craig says:

      Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. As a History/Politics graduate I used to read all about it. It is still a shock to the system to watch the Establishment cling on to power ‘with every fabric of their being’. Disgusting. Corrupt beyond belief.

    78. heedtracker says:

      http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-20142924 is a very worthwhile watch even if your completely neutral. Last night socialist worker George Galloway boosted up billionaire Sir Ian Wood’s Scots oil will run out in 15 years forecast and SNP Scots are nazi liars of course and etc

      So within 50 seconds of this one BBC interview. Sir Ian not only explains the £40+billion Scots oil balance of payments contribution, he states quite clearly

      “if we look ahead,we could still produce 25 billion barrels and at $100 barrel thats two thousand five hundred billion dollars. I mean the figures are staggering”

      But last night George Galloway, under a silly hat, lied and lied over and over to a huge audience of Scots teenagers.

      the UK govt, that weren’t elected, has clearly stated that it will NOT interfere with a fully consented hard fought, hard won scotindyref.
      they have done nothing else BUT interfere, and to constantly redefined the definition of interfering, by using their imperialist powers to do so.
      the diktat is that the people of scotland, will please their imperialist governors, if you vote no.
      we will do all in our power to ensure you peasants make the correct choice.

      it is the democratic right of the scottish people to freely choose it’s own destiny.
      that democratic right is clearly being interfered with by others who have no interests in democracy.
      this is being done, because we have won the argument, as people now in their droves, decide independence is the only viable way forward.

      He then went on to say united we stood alone against Hitler and Fascism during the last battle of Britain? What about all the other European countries that fought against Hitler and Fascism, what about Canada and the United States.
      If he was talking about the Battle of Britain why does the the RAF Roll of Honour for the Battle of Britain recognise 574 pilots from countries other than the United Kingdom?

      Or as Crash Gordon puts it

      Could an independent Scotland lose BBC programmes?

      Some certainly think so. Gordon Brown, the former prime minister and a prominent no campaigner, said Scottish families could lose shows such as EastEnders, or faced paying higher costs for watching them. A future Scottish Broadcasting corporation would be charged for screening them and would lose access to £4bn-worth of BBC programming, he claimed.

      You appear to be confused.

      Using your democratic right to free speech to express your disagreement with the SNP’s claims is not an ‘attack on democracy’.

      An attack on democracy is attempting to intimidate, harass, drown out and suppress the views of anyone who dares to question or criticise the SNP’s claims.

      It’s hardly surprising that the No campaign exhibits this kind of 1984-style doublethink. After all, INGSOC’s slogan in the book: “War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.” is actually a long-winded way of saying, “Best of both worlds.”

      There is no doubt whatsoever, that the process which is currently underway will conclude next week when both the people and the nation rise as one to implement change for good.

      Westminster and their supporters including the press and THE BRITISH BROADCASTING CORPORATION continue to humiliate themselves before the world. It is they themselves who have turned on the spotlight and the sight is pathetic.

      Weak and confused leadership. A prime minister who can’t speak to the people he governs. He is empty.

      But, the people of Scotland have a true collective voice that he has heard, and it is one which HE KNOWS WILL SUCCEED. His actions and his words reveal that.

      I’ve noticed an increase in fascist references to the Yes movement on Facebook in the past couple of days. Basically, these people are committing the reductio ad Hitlerum fallacy. It’s used in theism debates by theists who try to compare atheists to Hitler in a desperate attempt to discredit all their previous arguments. Atheist debaters refer to this as the big red Hitler panic button – the goto argument when you are desparate and completely out of any rational arguments. Best not to let it get you down. There’s a graphic on google images if you search for “project fear” which compares BT tactics with the Nazi propaganda machine. I’m having a moral dilemma about posting it on my Facebook feed – I’d like to on one hand but feel guilty that I’d be stooping to that level. However the graphic is quite relevant.

      I don’t think it’s independence affecting the pound so much as George Osbourne threatening no currency union. The truth is, rUK needs a currency union more than Scotland does (particularly to maintain the contribution of Scottish oil revenues to Sterling’s value), and denying a currency union, while good for his position as a No campaigner, is shooting himself in the foot in his position as Chancellor of the Exchequer.

      Bottom line: The markets don’t trust Osbourne not to be a complete incompetent. Say what you like about the markets, they do talk a lot of sense.

But why DID Jim Murphy refuse to debate? This is disgraceful and must be pursued. They (BT) are terrified to speak in public at all, as they know, all the time, that at any minute, they could .let the cat out of the bag’, just as Darling did, when he angrily ‘let slip’, ‘YES OF COURSE WE CAN USE THE POUND’. That’s why Murphy would not speak publicly as they ARE on the ropes. They keep all interviews to safe environments & hand picked audiences to avoid fatal faux pas. I switched on the TV this morning to BBC reporter Andrew Kerr saying that the RBS was moving its HQ to London. That’s a lie. They are moving their registered office. He then went on by referring to the ‘notorious’ YES poll on Sunday! How pejorative of the BBC! They really have thrown away all pretense on impartiality in the last week of the campaign. I have of course complained to the BBC where all such complaints are filed straight away into their shredding machine. Hate, hate hate them. We must get rid of this institutional mouthpiece for the British Establishment. BY the way check out Whelan’s twitter account. Absolutely no-one tweets him. He is a nonentity. Just ignore him folks.

      And they’ll get away with it because they were polling kids who aren’t eligible to vote, so it was “just a bit of fun”.

      Except that it’s not “just a bit of fun”. As the unionist mouthpieces never tire of reminding us, independence is a long-term proposition, and therefore we who are eligible to vote have a moral responsibility to consider what those children want. They are, after all, the ones who’ll have to live with our decision. Misleading us on what the children want is interfering with that responsibility.

No introspection, no sense of culpability, no remorse…they may as well be holding umbrellas up as shields for an incoming asteroid.

      Well Mr Whelan – know this. Labour will NEVER be electable again in Scotland if there is a NO vote. And the very fact that you spin-doctors infested ‘New Labour’ demonstrated to me and the electorate long ago that Labour were no longer the party of the people.

      You should be ashamed of yourself. Your whole career has done nothing but ruin the Labour party and contribute to bringing this country to it’s knees and helping us enter illegal wars by spinning lies to the press. I’d go as far as to say you have blood on your hands for playing ANY part of that – Bliar didn’t get his way without your help.

      Minitrue, alive and well. Just 30 years too late.

      Are my family the only ones who are suspicious of the news of that incredibly high figure, 97%, of the eligible population are now registered to vote?
      Scotland’s population at 2011 census 5,295,000
      Registered to vote 4,285,323. I make that 80.9%
      Registered for postal votes 789,024 – 18.4%

      With reference to the Nazi thing, I notice that Project Fear seems to have transmuted into Project Terror with the recent big business announcements.

      It all struck a chord and I finally realised I’d read about such tactics before. It was a book about Jo Stalin and his methodology to intimidate. Thankfully, Project Terror seems not to have got to chapter 7 of the book on his methods.

      I do criticise Peston when he feeds us the establishment line as many BBC journalists are likely to do but I thought his piece on foreign-ness was pretty balanced. There will be an anti Scottish backlash in England if we vote for inependence. The sad truth is their will be repercussions either way, but if we vote No then the official sanction will be given to it whereas in time they will grow used to having an independent neighbour when they will find a new bogeyman, be it Europe, polish builders or Romanians or perhaps socialists.

      Seamless, Salmond, his wife being ‘abused’ in the pub, Nazism, Holocaust in Poland but hey, they’ve got great WiFi!

      REMEMBER YOUR HISTORY! It was the British Nationalists who invented the Concentration Camp system, in South Africa, during the Boer War.

      Ah the old nazi ploy, would that be the same britishers who cleared people off their land all over the uk. Who wrote out their own titles deeds to other peoples property, who caused the deaths of thousands of people and still do today via atos. Thats the thing about the nazis,. I often wonder, did the allies fight the nazis because they did not want Hitlers nazism usurping their own,

      Maybe he should remind people that it was the British who invented concentration camps during the Boer War. Yes , this greatest union of whatever we are. The Europeans dont understand why we want to govern ourselves? Obviously he missed the German supporters chanting during the resent match. And why do they keep banging on about fascism? Scotland is a natural centre to left country, we aim for balance. I dont see nationalists marching down the street in military uniforms but there will be unionists doing it tomorrow in Edinburgh, thats ok apparently.

      What will crawl out of the wood work next. Thatcher out of the grave.

      Some folk thought Liddell was a Thatcher impressionist. ‘Is that Margaret Thatchet’, was the call.

      Shame about shouty Paisley. Didn’t get to have a say. Non.

    157. Ken500 says:

      When one person tried to register to vote. They had moved. They were told they had to have a postal vote. They have voted YES. Plenty of stickers/banners and flags flying high. There is a shortage of YES flags. Difficult to get. Otherwise there would be more on display.

    158. stewartb says:

      British nationalism (of one sort) on display in Edinburgh on Saturday – plea to all Yessers, leave them to it, let them make their impression on the citizens of Edinburgh and see what good it does them. If we ignore them, stay well away despite a natural inclination to protest and respond, any agent provocateurs will be isolated and dis-empowered.

    159. Mike says:

      Charlie Whellan’s admission in the third of his pieces in the newspaper clip that “he has just joined the 21st Century says it all… perhaps he will get up to date by next Thursday and vote YES.
