BBC Scotland can’t be anything *but* corrupt
In June last year I wrote an article titled ‘The BBC has re-launched Better Together’.
The article followed the EU Referendum where we learned that Scotland was to be dragged out of the EU against the will of the Scottish people.
Below is a short excerpt from the article.
Anger at the prospect of Scotland being stripped of its EU membership has led to increased support for independence. If momentum is not arrested, then demands for indyref2 will see the end of the Union within two years.
Whilst there has been virtually no political resistance to what is an organic rise in support for independence, there has of course been some opposition. The BBC has stepped into the Unionist vacuum and slowly started warming up the Better Together engine.
It was clear to me then that the state broadcaster would resurrect its role from the 2014 independence referendum campaign. The reason was simple. BBC Scotland is institutionally incapable of doing otherwise. It has to defend the Union. That is its purpose.
