E mails sent to the Head Of St Andrews University Professor Louise Richardson have come to light.
Salmond attempted to force Loise Richardson to criticise the U.K. Government, and in the meantime praise The Scottish Government. He failed.

Yeah, and it has also been revealed that the UK government has pleaded with other nation-states to provide pressure in opposition to Scotland's independence campaign.

What the Yes campaign has done pales in comparison to the activities of the UK government and Better Together.

Also, i wouldn't be trusting the Telegraph, especially after this disgusting excuse of journalism. Just look at that juxtaposition and speculative prose:

Thanks.


Edit: Thought i might add to this, and provide the following link:

Revealed: the Foreign Office Devo unit's drive to kill off independence:


The Devolution Unit, created by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) in 2012 to deliver abroad the "utmost co-operation", now appears to be at the heart of Westminster's anti-independence drive, amassing hostile reactions from overseas.

It is understood the FCO has contacted the governments of China, Russia, the US, New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the 28 EU nations about the Scottish referendum in a global search for allies who might oppose independence.

One recent cable showed UK embassies being ordered to forward a Westminster paper critical of independence "to their host governments and other local contacts" and then feed their comments back to the Devolution Unit "ASAP".

I missed that article, thanks for linking it. I knew about The US and Russia, but I didn't know about the others.

Westminister is furious, not because we want to leave but because we have the gall to do it without their permission. That's how I see it anyway.

Just read it....A non Story.Headline says more than the story.
Considering the story is 18 months old, perfect timing dont you think...?
If this is the "Bombshell" they have been siting on for a year and a half it's a pretty poor attempt at a Bombshell...

We can see past the BS and Bluster now and no-one is falling for it anymore.
Trying to influence voters with non stories like this it will only succeed in strengthening our resolve. Heels dug firmly in now and 100% behind Independence.

Tick Tock.

I googled it and the article is still there.
I don't believe a word.




A source familiar with the conversation said that the First Minister spent 10 minutes attempting to “put words in her mouth” about the impact of independence.


Really? A source familiar with the conversation? Very good.

Queenie would not get such a large purse of money to gamble with if she looses the scottiush tax revenue and her lands to the people of scotlan who worked and paid for it all in the first place.

You want dirty tricks try the politicians in London. England will not be on the centre table once the scots leave and as an english man I don't want my country in the forefront attracting every extremist going. I want my country's parliament to look after the interests of the people who elected it and to park its nose firmly on english affairs. Both the NI and Wales have their own parlaiments so are already on their way to breaking free from London.

We need separate countries to monitor exactly what our governments get up to with the syphoning off of public money into the elite's purses.

PS Scotland if you want queen - pleased take her and the extra three generations of would-be kings you are welcome to the lot of them.

The whole Yes campaign had been aggressive, militant and borderline racist. Let's pray these Yes fascists are defeated or Scotland will be a truly awful place to live!

Both sides have used questionable tactics.

Pot and kettle springs to mind.

I wouldn't trust either side......no, I'll rephrase that - I don't trust either side.

Maybe not.

But I meant the double speak, selective use of half-truths, biased reporting, blatant disregard of opposing opinions and 'experts' testimonies, unwillingness to directly answer awkward questions, blah, blah, blah.
Basically everything we've come to expect from modern day politicians, their spin doctors and those who pull their strings from behind the scenes.

I have to agree that is a terrible statement.

However I'm wasn't talking about third parties like the Orange order or the bigoted vile Scottish Catholic Church, I was referring to political parties and their campaigners,

Not wishing to (ahem) temper your enthusiasm to suggest "yes" voters have been intimidated, but your link regarding Orangemen is dated 2001. Hardly current, even if it has been taken by the pro independence crowd to prove something nasty and horrible about the "no" campaign.
