  1. National Broadcaster? But not for the whole nation. Not for all of us.
    Deflecting Yes

  3. Indeed they have hoards of folk at GCHQ with a direct line to their dodgy psychologists, tutoring on how to frame a narrative, easy peasy lemon squeezy. Oh I know, make it about their chosen one, their leader, she’s bad, and her followers (not voters!) are bad as well.
    The BritNats really are so desperate to demonise Nicola Sturgeon, the worlds eyes will be on Scotland in November for COP26, she must be made to look very very, I dunno, something bad. The English Gov want the FM silenced they know she will wipe the floor when she takes the stage at COP26, and the oh so embarassing PM (yikes) of England will look so incompetent (because he is) it’s going to be so entertaining, can’t wait.
