From TuS regular Gordon:
The Herald is in trouble. ‘Journalists’ going on strike. They won’t be missed spewing out nonsense. Getting by on advertising. The readership declining. Trying hard with Clickbait. Not succeeding. 75% of declining readership support Independence.
Under FPTP, one person, one vote, the SNP would sweep the board above the lot of them. There would be no opposition. The SNP already sweeps the board with restriction put in place by unionists to always let 3rd useless unionists in. D’Hondt. A quota. A million votes go in the bin to let 3rd unionists in. The electorate encouraged to vote for several candidates that voters do not want and cannot stand. Ranking disliked candidate and parties irrationally. The electorate can’t stand most of them but have to participate in a propaganda process to ensure some unionists get in. To gang together and prevent the electorate first choice administration wanted. Not democracy. Just a shambles imposed by unionists to defy the electorate’s wishes. Contrived.
Council STV the same. Giving 3rd unionist candidates two bites of the cherry. Then ganging together in an illegal alliance to keep the favoured political party out. An absolute scandal. Gerrymandering. Candidates crossing the floor and betray all credentials as soon as they are elected. Illegal gerrymandering. Black monies coming illegally. Purdah being broken. Lying and cheating. The unionists way. Absolute fraud and corruption. Destroying any sense of democracy for illegal gains. Imposed by unionist parties on the electorate with no choice. They did not vote for it. AV was rejected by the voters big time but PR was imposed on Scotland by unionists parties. To give them unfair advantage against the electorate wishes,
Polling companies break electoral rules and law to influence the vote. Hedge funds betting on the influenced results. Polling companies illegal methodology and data. Collected illegally or marketed using illegal methods. To influence the vote. Illegally targeting people, using an illegally gained profile.
The Polling companies censured and fined many times. The protagonists becoming £Millionaires wasting public and private money. Betting on the outcome. The chancer Chancellor. YouGov made £Millions. Now ripping off the public purse on illegal PPE unscrutinised contract in the wife’s name. The Tory unionist way. Tax evaders setting the tax for others. To ensure they are free of tax. An absolute scandal. The UK the most unequal place in the world.
Tory Party funded by tax evading bankers and hedge funds. Labour funded by Trade Unions. Then Labour supporting Tory policies not working people. The Greens often irrational. LibDem charlatans supporting any unionist political parties for money and harming the economy. The UK the most unequal place in the world. Tax evaders heaven ruining the world economy and killing people. Cheating and lying.
BBC propaganda ruled by Westminster. Cost £5Billion in illegal payments. Without a fair and free press there is no democracy. MSM owned by tax evading non Doms. Ruining the economy for personal gain. The Westminster Gov wasting public monies spewing out rubbish and propaganda. Given over to the right wing press by patronising Westminster unionist politicians had in glove to try and fool the people. Or any one who watches it, rather than sharing and passing on information on the internet. 1990. Still all places and areas not covered.
Facebook tax evader Zuckerberg just settled a lawsuit (Cambridge Analytica) for £Billion rather than face a grilling from Senate committee. Facing criminal charges in the US. Fined a minor sum in the UK for similar offences. Getting away with it when they should have been jailed. That is the supposed penalty.

Just when I thought that the sun might be coming out!
Not made my day but unfortunately true.

I think the pandemic has made things worse, it’s been a gift to the rich and powerful, on top of England’s Brexit and dragging Scotland out of the EU (that democratic deficit if off the scale) things, can only get worse, I’m afraid.
This is from 2020 where htere was some optimism but now, who knows.
Watch in fits and starts, it’s quite a lot to take in, imo.
