“a crisis over GP recruitment”
“furious controversy over its Named Person scheme”
“the rise from oblivion on the Scottish Conservative Party”
Iain Macwhirter continues to demonstrate how susceptible he is to the cosy consensus of the metropolitan media. It doesn’t matter that, here in the real world, there was no “crisis over GP recruitment”. That’s what was ‘reported’by the British media – so it must be true.
It doesn’t matter that the supposed controversy over the Named Person scheme was entirely hysteria driven by opportunist politicians and the sensationalist press. You’d have to be able to see that hysteria for what it was in order to appreciate the falseness of it – and Mr Macwhirter is too much in awe of the British establishment to entertain such doubts.
It doesn’t matter that the “rise from oblivion on the Scottish Conservative Party” is entirely an artifice of the media celebrity manufacturing apparatus. Ruth Davidson is appearing on panel shows – therefore she must be politically significant.
Iain Macwhirter is among the more astute and perspicacious commentators on Scotland’s political scene. There are times when that is a rather depressing thought.Views: 2728
