Dundee Evening Telegraph: When 3000 is more than 16000!

I wondered how the Tully as we know it in Dundee would report the incredible 16,000 people who marched for Scottish independence with All Under One Banner at the weekend in Dundee. I was able to see some of the march (sadly could not do the whole march) and it was a visual delight and uplifting in so many ways. Everyone who took part should be very proud. So tonight I went out and bought the local rag, not expecting much from the unionist Thomson publication and I was not surprised, the march barely merited a quarter of a page as you can see below.

Now the Kilt Walk took place yesterday, a good cause in every way, 3000 people took part to raise money for children in Scotland. A just cause indeed and worthy of a mention in the paper, however it got a slightly different mention than the march with 16,000 people taking part.

I know we all know how it works with unionist papers, 3000 is greater than 16,000 every day. Some things just never change at all, but who cares at the end of the day the fight goes on and we will win in the end.

      Seemingly they did a bit more in the courier but the biggest march in years in a yes city you would expect more coverage. I don’t buy many papers but I’ll stick to the National when I do.

    My concern is when we start the Indy ref next time
    The Unoinists rags will act according to their Masters wishes
    But the ones to worry about are the hidden deviants like bbc who will complain for no GOOD REASON
    to TW,F and all other social media companies to take down comments and sites
    FOR NO JUSTIFABLE REASON
    THEY ALL KNOW HOW POWERFUL WE ARE ON SOCIAL MEDIA
    AND THATS WHERE THEY WILL EMPLOY THEIR PUPPETS TO SUBVERT THE
    WILL OF THE PEOPLE

      I don’t see the way around it to be honest but to be fair I just don’t see a referendum being called anytime soon now. The BBC are a lost cause and when I do pick up the local rag it’s just the same old crap. Apart from the football it’s pretty dire. To think it’s not that long ago I was a two paper a day man. How times change.
