    1. I'm surprised by that, to be honest, I thought Corbyn was clearly the least bad of the two.

  3. May was a master stateswoman by comparison with racist fuckwit bumbling boris. Hence he can't even beat Corybn in a debate.

    From what I can see on social media, the winner was Sturgeon.

    1. Corbyn is a veteran Marxist and defender of onerous murderers. He should have wiped the floor with Boris. 3 wan fur Scotland.

    2. Skier you are the anti English racist. Boris is a good British Eton boy although a bit of a Mess.

  4. Jeremy Corbyn said in his summing-up this is a "once in a generation" election.
    Does he intend not to have any more elections....or is "once in a generation" just a figure of speech?

    1. No, it's impossible to use that expression as a figure of speech, he must have meant it literally. No more general elections for 25 years.

    2. Well he is a Marxist young James. And we had Humza Yousaf on talking about a potential progressive alliance if Labour win most seats. He did not define progressive!

    3. Liberal Alan Reid from Argyll defines a generation as 30 years and announced on Debate Night that he won't allow an indy ref till 2044. He's important.

  5. I just complained to OFCOM about the programme, for all the good it'll do.

  6. Debates tonight just groundhog day, with nothing new on offer.
    Scotland's FM treated as a figure of fear/hate.
    Once again it's all about England and their electorate.
    Nothing to see here, move on to Independence.

    1. Most Scots I speak tae think Knickerless is just a wee shite. No one expresses fear or hate. And she does not speak for Scotland only her narrow back EU crawling false Scots English hating Nat sis.

  7. The Twittersphere is once again loaded with our Unionist friends here in Scotland and our English friends and relatives from England telling all Scots how irelevant Scotland and Scottish people are

    What's funny about that is the Scottish Unionists are on the side of those saying this stuff and haven't even realised it means them too

    Maybe they think English people know that they don't mean them

  8. When are you going to block Yoon reptiles James. Well they can pollute ETV or EBC sites. They or he contribute nothing to Scot Goes Pop.

    1. The term Yoon is clearly a racist term from people who think they are real blooded Scots who may in fact be Irish against Brit/Scots who have worked hard to let Scotland flourish. Knickerless has never condemned the inherant racism with her fascist movement.

      Delete
    2. Just ignore the poor soul. Don't rise to her bait and respond to her.

      Delete
    3. Yoon is short for Union like Scot is for Scottish or in regular use Nat is short for Nationalist

      The English are the ones who make up derogatory nicknames for other people who are not them, apparently it helps them with their patriotic morale, they say, the rest of the world calls it racism

  9. What I find odd is the silence from the liberal progressive left. People who object to fake news, pro Tory bias, Conservative HQ pretending to be a fact checker, etc but not a peep about unfairness of ITV stitch up.

  10. Why no Scottish polls ? There has even been a poll for Northern Ireland which is quite interesting the DUP and Sinn Fein could lose seats to the Alliance and SDLP .I notice Electoral Calculus latest forecast is for 51 SNP seats.What are they basing that on ?.
    I'm a bit worried that the TV debates could focus attention on Tories and Labour . Still hope the SNP can get 45 seats plus

    1. England won the World Cup during 1966 a year before an Irish team won the European Cup.

    2. The unionist vote has fallen sharply (approx -10%) net to the neutral (on reunification) Alliance.

      Little to no change in the nationalist vote as you not; mainly some SF-SDLP churn.

      We could be facing the end of the UK / union flag. The only remaining justification for not holding a referendum in NI is the tenuous FPTP majority for unionist parties. If that falls, there will be no justification whatsoever for saying 'NI is part of the UK because people there want that!'. Such a statement already is untrue based on Stormont elections and Westminster 2017 vote shares. There is no longer a unionist majority. No clear nationalist one either, but no unionist one. The people need to be asked what they want.

      I imagine the EU will push for full backstop and even a referendum if the unionists lose ground + the English Tories win a majority in England/Wales. The 'backstop light' was just an attempt to get it through parliament in the face of DUP opposition. There is no intention of doing anything other than the original full backstop. Johnson gave that away when drunk with his 'full free movement!'.

  11. I think we can all agree that last nights debate was not exactly the best argument for the union.

    Hence GWC's been so busy.

    1. I do not watch hyped up political debates where the TV gods set the agenda. The Scotland game was very entertaining. Skier, if you learned anything new in the debate then please elaborate. I did note that Knickerless got a lengthy interview on a chanel to spout her Nat si poison.

    2. You voted against the existence of a Scottish team in 2014.

    3. Explain further Skier.

  12. On the excuse that only those likely to end up as PM should be allowed in this debate.
    The only heat generated was on who would ignore the Scots mandate for Indyref2.
    The British Empire has gone but the entitlement remains.
    Maybe a few Scots eyes were opened, though probably not to be honest.
    Scottish unionists eh!
    None so blind as them that refuse to see.

  13. The BBC issued a statement to say they refused to expose any lies told by Boris Johnson as it could undermine democracy

  14. One of the reasons I vote SNP is they would not e.g. change their twitter account details in a deliberate attempt to mislead the electorate.

  15. I don't imagine last night's 'We English hate the Scots and should take the vote away from them' fest has done much for promoting the union north of Gretna.

  16. Must admit am a bit confused. Keep hearing how the English parties are racists who are going to block Scots right to vote; yet the SNP and Nichola keep saying that this is not true and if they get a majority in the election a second referendum will be granted; clearly both can't be true so someone must be lying

    1. "Keep hearing how the English parties are racists who are going to block Scots right to vote"

      You need to ask English parties about this. It's them saying it.

      Delete
    2. Let's hope you are right, and English parties are just lying anti-Scottish racists.

      It would be scary if they are anti-Scottish racists that are telling the truth, as that would make them fascists too.

      Obviously as they are saying they would try to stop Scots from being able to vote, we know at least they are hate-filled anti-Scottish racists. To say such things, even if you didn't meant to follow through, is like e.g. saying 'I'm going to take away the vote from blacks! It's me who decides if they have the right to vote, not them!', i.e. unquestionably racist.

    3. I'm sure they are after all the SNP are telling me that if they get a majority they are going to ask for a section 30 which will be granted no questions asked despite what they are saying now. I'm sure the SNP are 100% confident of this happening otherwise they would not make it the center of their campaign.

    5. One minute you complain about name calling the next minute you're the one doing it

    6. What the SNP saying is irrelevant to the issue of English parties being anti-Scottish racists by e.g. saying they will deny Scots (as a distinct minorty group) the vote.

      Whether they can actually do that or not is likewise irrelevant to the racist act of saying they will try.

      A racist does not cease being racist for choosing not to follow through on racist threats or having the courts prevent this.

      Anyway, I not the same English parties are not saying they would prevent the BNP or National Front from implementing core policies if these win elections. Only Scottish parties are to be prevented from doing this. You can only conclude from this that British fascism = acceptable; Scots voting is not.
