On Tuesday evening Reporting Scotland carried an item based on a report from the Fraser of Allander Institute.
In summary, the report warned that Scotland’s budget would not be sufficient to pay for public services. The sub-text of the report was that the Scottish Government would have to raise income tax in order to keep things as they are.
Below is a short clip from the Reporting Scotland item.
The clip shows Jackie Bird and Douglas Fraser casually discussing the implications of any such tax rises, should the Scottish Government decide to go down that route. The discussion could have been scripted over three years ago for it is eerily similar to a prophecy made by Alan Bissett during the 2014 Indyref campaign.
Alan’s prophecy was captured on film at the time and a subsequent short video by Phantom Power explains it in context.
If a leading artist was able to discern what was going on in the lead-up to the 2014 referendum, why weren’t our media professionals able to see? As with Brexit, Frigates and The Vow, the Scottish people were duped by the same media that now blithely discusses the fallout as though it had nothing to do with them.
