I had the misfortune to read the Dundee Courier today so thought I would have a wee skiffie at the letters page. Now as anyone who has ever read a Dundee Courier will know it is a right wing, Tory supporting anti SNP Daily Mail wanna be. I always find the letters page the most interesting in the Courier as it shows up who actually buys it and what gets chosen to be printed and today the letters page had a full house of Yoondom.
First up was SNP BAD YOON
Mr. Macintyre was extremely concerned by the new bridge needing work done on it, apparently they are emergency repairs and he finishes by saying that the bridge, lauded by people all over the world, is a total SNP FAILURE. Wonder if he is pals with Wee Willie Rennie.
Next up is the TOO STUPID YOON
Mr.Farmer of Knightsward Farm, no really, is bemused by the explosion of outrage (that’s some outrage) that the EU has denied Dundee a place in the Capital of Culture Lottery. Mr.Farmer thinks that Dundee is deluding itself in trying to be recognised above all others and complains that the common understanding of the word culture is the arts and human intellectual achievement, none of which Dundee have apparently. Dundee’s bid is just another money wasting example of faux outrage and a lack of understanding of world realities. Wonder what reality Mr.Farmer lives in, maybe an alternative one.
Finally we have DELUDED YOON
Mr.Tate of Edinburgh is celebrating that Scottish Labour have found a leader with the policy and vision to end the divisiveness of the last 10 years of the SNP. Really, according to Mr.Tate real socialist policies will see the tide turn against the SNP. Richard Leonard will tackle the scourges of our age, poverty, inequality, lack of affordable housing and a crumbling NHS. No acceptance of the fact that Labour caused most of it and then abstained on any opportunity to try to address it at the UK level.
It is so good to see that the Dundee Courier continues to be the local choice of the Daily Mail reader and that their support for yoondom goes unabated, ahh gotta love the Courier.
