I’m reminded of the time when after three appearances on RT explaining media bias in Scotland, they then emailed me to ask me whether Russia or the Ukraine was responsible for the shooting down Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17. I told them who the UK media thought had done it.
I seem to have kept my head on that one. The trouble arises when you fool yourself.
The most obvious example recently is long-retired bacteriology Prof Pennington thinking he is the man to answer questions on virology and pandemic control despite a limited cv in these fields.
Prof Jim Gallacher, above, knows about further and higher education. I suspect he knows FA about health-related matters of any kind. Here’s what he was doing when he stopped doing it more than a decade age.
Now, he feels able to predict that the SNP Government is about to fail in its handling of the Covid vaccine programme.
Where is his evidence from?
The Our Scottish Future ‘think tank’, is a Gordon Brown project registered at Companies House with only one ‘officer’, Jim Gallacher.
There are three ‘research’ reports at the site all apparently written by one person – Jim Gallacher.
Some think tank.
