Following hard on the heels of the lying headlines from The Herald and The Scotsman, here we have another example of dishonest British establishment propaganda from right-wing rag, The Express, claiming that public confidence in Police Scotland has fallen.
Once again, we need only compare the headline with the actual content of the Scottish Crime and Justice Survey 2014/15 in order to expose the lie. Here is what the Executive Summary has to say,
- The majority of adults were very or fairly confident in their local police force across the six measures of confidence asked about in this survey.
- Since 2008/09, there have been statistically significant increases in confidence across all six measures
The British media is lying to the people of Scotland. Every day, they lie. They lie about everything. Much of the time, they don’t even try to conceal the fact that they are lying.
I have never suggested such a thing before, but I’m starting too think we need a massive boycott of the mainstream media in Scotland. Even if only to bring to the attention of the wider public the extent to which they are being lied to.
