Professor John Robertson, forced out of his job, after the Referendum, by sleep apnoea which he blames on the stress resulting from BBC Scotland’s attempts to have him punished by his employer the University of the West of Scotland (his wife blames his becoming a fat bastard) has been shocked by the latest findings from Ipsos MORI and has revised his opinion of the importance of BBC bias against independence to ‘diddly squat.’
1 031 Scots were asked:
Looking ahead to the Scottish Parliamentary election, which, if any, issues do you think will be very important to you in helping you decide which party to vote for?
Only 5 out of 1 031 or less than 0.5%, chose ‘Alex Salmond enquiry.‘
The most popular were:
- Scottish independence/devolution 394 or 38%.
- Education/schools 305 or 30%
- Healthcare 239 or 23%
- Coronavirus 199 or 19%
- Economy 163 or 16%
- Europe 127 or 12%.
Prof Robertson says:
Look at the above, think of the attempts, just in the last year, by especially Reporting Scotland and Good Morning Scotland, to blame the SNP for the ‘worst drug deaths in Europe’, hospitals infected by deadly pigeon poo killing babies, Dundee oncologists risking the lives of breast cancer patients, civil wars and sex scandals in the Party leadership, anti-democratic conspiracies, Jeanne Freeman this and Jeanne Freeman that, yet more more than 50% say they will vote SNP and only 5 in 1 031 say the blanket coverage of Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon, might affect their vote?
BBC Scotland is clearly a complete failure in its attempts to save the Union. It may now actually be counter-productive. We may be watching an example of a reverse media effect caused by the audience having come to see through the propaganda agenda:
The more BBC Scotland try to undermine the SNP, the more popular they make them.
Keep up the good work chaps!
