    Machiavellian?? What an insult. Macchiavelli was a political genius. What you are referring to is very far from genius...😁

    I was referring to the principle rather than that specific example, as practiced by our friendly hibs.net neighbourhood SNP political education and liaison officer, among others. Hence my capitalised IF... ☺

    Ah, missed the capitalisation. Still, with your keyboard skills, you can hardly blame me.

    OK OK fair point Mr Machiavelli....let's call them a rather poor facsimile of such cunning then.

    The full picture from the Dug, was only a piece of the jigsaw. Torrance's aids, then came to the party to give the picture a fuller scale.

    Had to chuckle at the positioning of stories on the BBC website today. Top story was minimum alcohol pricing and the next was about Sturgeon drinking champagne from the Calcutta Cup! :-)

    The BBC Scotland radio phone in this morning was a hoot. Discussing minimum pricing at 50p per unit and everyone was a bit meh so they decided to go with "What if it was more?" Well that put the cat among the pigeons and got the required response.

    BBC lackeys bird and Joffre trying to make capital about waiting times in the present horrific weather situation. Absolutely shameless IMO.

    National news : Louise Lear (weather) said south west England getting hammered while Scotland still being 'pestered' by snow. You have to laugh, eh.

    It's ironic how people complain about the BBC bias towards the UK but then have nothing to say when the BBC show the same bias towards the EU. Very hypocritical IMO and totally blinded by their own narrow views.

    Not something I'd say was blindingly obvious. Any examples we could discuss?

    I tend to agree with you HT, even though I bat for that side, I do sense weighted reporting on Brexit matters.

    Somehow felt that they had to link the weather and cancelled operations due to weather to waiting times. Embarrassing IMO.

    The entire coverage of brexit is biased towards the EU. It's on the tv every day just switch it on.

    Not meaning to be cheeky but only someone who is pro EU themselves can't see how biased the BBC is toward the EU. In fact the whole media circus is pro EU which should be ringing alarm bells for people.

    Incident on a train in Christchurch. Meanwhile in Scotland....

    It's bad enough that they continually treat Scotland as a region but to treat it the same as an English town is pitiful. Not just BBC of course....

    How slow is the BBC news page for Edinburgh? The latest football report they have is the Hearts v Killie 1-1 draw. I was checking to see how the Jams got on in the cup yesterday.

    Is this worthy of coverage?

    They’ll have been heading across their specially built bridge to the Ubi Chip instead.

    I've just watched John Sweeney doing an investigatory documentary on the life in current Russia. He was quite good and I must say, seemingly quite brave.

    Alas, since Indyref-1, I find it hard to blindly believe anything the BBC tells me as I no longer know if it's the truth or otherwise.
    It's kinda like the time I found out there was no Santa Claus and my parents had been lying to me since I was born.
