Whilst perusing Munguin's mighty organ I came across a comment from a contributor called Dean. As far as I am aware Dean is a post-graduate student which would indicate that he is of above average intelligence which makes his comment more risible and incredible.
Munguin's Republic is a blog which supports Scottish independence and on almost a daily basis points out the ruthless arrogance, inadequacies and absurdities of the current and previous UK governments backed up with actual and verifiable facts.
Given this abundance of information what does Dean focus on? With information apparently gathered from the more rabid, which includes most of the UK, media his contribution concentrates on crowing regarding the situation of three SNP MPs who have been tried and found guilty by the mass media but by no-one else.
The three concerned are, we understand, under investigation and the longer the investigations take gives the media every opportunity to portray these investigations as proof of wrong-doing not just by them but the SNP as a party.
In the lead up to the Scottish elections we will find many more attempts by unionist politicians, aided and abetted by the media, to 'sling mud' at the SNP. As shown at the General Election the vast majority of voters will see these tactics for what they are and the reasons behind them. It is doubly disappointing then to see those with a supposedly superior intellect falling for these tactics.
