Outside the bubble of the SNP Westminster group, few ask why they are treated so badly by the British. Many more ask why they continue to submit to this treatment.

Reporting Scotland health correspondent uses misleading graph to obscure lower death rate in Scotland
Talking Up Scotland
...
Thanks to nancy689 for alerting me to this. Lisa Summers last night: I’ve got a couple of graphs to show where we are in Scotland. The first one is hospital deaths across the four nations and you can see that while it is still rising it’s not as steeply as it was a couple of […]

Anyone up for their taxes being used to bail out Scottish newspapers? No, we didn’t think so. It’s always a bit weird when the very people who are ostensibly least well-served by Scotland and the UK’s media – in this case middle-class Trotskyist pro-independence “anarchists” – suddenly call for multibillionaire media barons to be bailed […]
Mhairi Black: We need a universal basic income to solve this crisis

AS I’m writing this, we are about to enter our sixth weekend under lockdown. In my experience, it’s getting a bit easier in some ways and more difficult in others. But the weekends are the hardest.
Murray shattered as Scottish public sticks with the SNP again
Talking Up Scotland
...
Poll after poll putting the SNP at 50% or more and the First Minister trusted by 10 to 12 times as many Scots as the Scottish Labour leader, Shadowy Secretary of State for Morningside, Ian Murray, must be shattered by the public’s lack of confidence in his party and, if they recognise him, him. The […]
Another problem solved
Wings Over Scotland
...
When the news isn’t news: Lots of Scottish newspapers (most notably everything in the Herald And Times Group) had already ducked out of providing ABC figures at all, but this will be a godsend for the rest to save their growing embarrassment. Wings readers can remember the pitiful state of the last published figures here.

Scottish Greens wrong to assume all property-owners are wealthy
The National
...
IN their tirade against the SNP for refusing to legislate for a two-year rent freeze, the Greens seem to believe that anyone renting out a flat, or possibly several, is doing so as a business and is at least wealthy enough to repay a mortgage or even buy those extra properties outright for the purpose of simply making more money. How wrong they are!
Independence: What Next?
RPJ Opinion
...
Our government said it would not tolerate a power grab, that it would not stand for Scotland being taken out of the European Union against the democratic will of the Scottish people. It has had mandate after mandate to move forward with independence. It had the support to resist the British state over Brexit. We watched as the United Kingdom staggered from one constitutional crisis to another –...
Carlaw left with nowhere to go, as new Scottish poll reveals a severe lack of confidence in London's handling of the crisis, and almost total backing for the Scottish Government's approach
Scot Goes Pop

The BBC have a policy of never commissioning voting intention polls - and they don't really report on other outlets' voting intention polls either.  (The latter is a relatively recent development - I remember when I was growing up there used to be a polling round-up every night on the news during general election campaigns, but at some point it was decided that was too much of a distraction...
Stunning level of approval for Scottish Government’s covid response in new poll ‘analysed’ to insult your intelligence
Talking Up Scotland
...
The Scottish government benefits from a halo effect whereby credit for what is done well in Scotland is attributed to Holyrood and blame for poor performance is laid at the door of Westminster. (Sir John Curtice, professor of politics at Strathclyde University) This astonishing statement is the only explanation offered for the results of an […]

SNP MP Angus MacNeil says he will not return to the Commons on June 2 as MPs have been told to by the Leader of the House.
Blind pig finds truffle
Wings Over Scotland

In a shock finding that’s sure to provoke soul-searching and recriminations at SNP HQ, it appears that the Scottish Government actually has a new policy that’s backed by a majority of the Scottish public. Honestly, we were as surprised as you. In our latest Panelbase poll, respondents supported the idea of giving every citizen a Universal Basic […]
Leading academic praises Scottish Government on Gordon Brewer’s show

Brewer walks into this one, asking: The messaging is going to be very important isn’t it?’ Professor Bauld: In terms of communication going forward, I must say I think the Scottish Government has been far better and more transparent than some other parts of the world, including Westminster, from my personal view, but the communication […]
