BBC spin it that Nicola Sturgeon “has scrapped plans for a second referendum”
Editor’s note: The BBC propaganda machine is hard at work as ever ….
Talk of the second referendum being kicked into the long grass, postponed or that Nicola Sturgeon has U-turned and has suffered a setback are more a reflection of the wishful thinking that infests the Unionist media than a description of reality.
They need it to be so, so they report as fact their own subjective desire. The BBC, as expected, is at the forefront of that drive.
The presenter above claims Nicola Sturgeon has said a second indyref won’t take place until after the UK has left the European Union. Below is a short excerpt from the First Minister’s statement which shows that it is the end of negotiations that any second ballot would take place and not when the UK has left the EU – something Nicola Sturgeon has always said.
And, in the meantime, whatever their [voters] scepticism about the likely outcome of the negotiations, they want the Scottish Government to focus as hard as we can on securing the best possible outcome for Scotland.
Indeed, that view has even more force now that the general election and the weakness of the UK government has re-opened the possibility, however narrow, of averting a hard Brexit and retaining membership of the single market.
I have a duty to listen to those views and I intend to do so.
The Scottish Government remains committed – strongly – to the principle of giving Scotland a choice at the end of this process.
The presenter also claimed that the First Minister had “scrapped plans” for a second indyref before the Spring of 2019. I must have missed this part of Nicola Sturgeon’s statement. It rather puzzlingly turned up again on Good Morning Scotland ….
