I see CommonSpace is persisting in the lie it promulgated previously by insisting that the SNP “voted against” a similar resolution on under-18 military recruitment last year. Here’s what I wrote in response to the lie when it was first published,
“The headline on this article is as dishonest as any you’ll find in the Herald or Scotsman. The resolution on raising the age of military recruitment was not blocked by MPs. It was not blocked at all. It was remitted back for further consideration on the vote of delegates to National Council, only a handful of whom were MPs.
This decision was taken, moreover, after a thorough debate in which both sides had every opportunity to put their case to the 300 or so delegates and observers gathered in Perth. It is as ‘misleading’ to imply that there was no explanation for this action as it is to claim that the action was taken by MPs.”
We were led to believe that CommonSpace was going to be different from the mainstream media. All I am seeing hear is more of the same.Views: 3794
