Craig Murray: Daily Record Investigates My Home and Finances

31 March 2020 — Craig Murray

The day after I publish my article accusing the corporate media of being an active part of the conspiracy against Alex Salmond, and of giving disgracefully selective, slanted and biased coverage of the evidence of his trial, the Daily Record has decided to investigate my home and personal finances. Is not life full of little coincidences?

J’Accuse By Craig Murray

30 March 2020 — Craig Murray

A 22 person team from Police Scotland worked for over a year identifying and interviewing almost 400 hoped-for complainants and witnesses against Alex Salmond. This resulted in nil charges and nil witnesses. Nil. The accusations in court were all fabricated and presented on a government platter to the police by a two prong process. The first prong was the civil service witch hunt presided over by Leslie Evans and already condemned by Scotland’s highest civil court as “unlawful, unfair and tainted by apparent bias”. The second prong was the internal SNP process orchestrated by a group at the very top in SNP HQ and the First Minister’s Private Office. A key figure in the latter was directly accused in court by Alex Salmond himself of having encouraged a significant number of the accusers to fabricate incidents.

What Next? Post-It Series #2 By S. Artesian

24 June 2016 — The Wolf Report: Nonconfidential analysis for the anti-investor

Logical question, not that anything at all has been accomplished, but still…..the votes are in and Britain, temporarily,  has voted to exit the European Union.  Temporarily…not temporarily the exit stuff; but temporarily the “Britain” part, because Scotland and Northern Ireland voted remain.  So it’s England and Wales, or soon will be. Cameron and Osborne and Johnson and Corbyn and Farage will have accomplished what the Scots couldn’t, or didn’t want to, the dissolution of their union with England.

RISE: Scotland’s Left Alliance By Ken Ferguson

One year on from the historic Scottish independence referendum politics here are utterly changed.

The long dominant Labour Party, which opted to campaign against independence — alongside the Conservatives, loathed by the big majority of Scots voters, and the now virtually demolished Liberal Democrats in the Better Together alliance — reaped the whirlwind at the UK general election in May.

Media Lens: ‘Bullying’ – BBC Political Editor’s Bizarre Term For The Public Resisting The Establishment

25 August 2015 — Media Lens

The BBC’s Nick Robinson has made a career out of telling the public what leading politicians say and do; sometimes even what they ‘think’. This stenography plays a key role in ‘the mainstream media’, given that a vital part of statecraft is to keep the public suitably cowed and fearful of threats from which governments must protect us. The ‘free press’ requires compliant journalists willing to disseminate elite-friendly messages about global ‘peace’, ‘security’ and ‘prosperity’, uphold Western ideology that ‘we are the good guys’, and not question power deeply, if at all.

Media Lens: ‘Dark Omens’ And ‘Horror Shows’: Scottish Independence, Power And Propaganda

15 September 2014 — Media Lens

Established power hates uncertainty, especially any threat to its grip on the political, economic and financial levers that control society. And so it is with elite fears that the United Kingdom, formed by the 1707 Acts of Union, could be on the verge of unraveling.
