Outline: How the Etonian elite estate are through their own propaganda platforms, set to attempt “the conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organised habits and opinions of the masses”, by exploiting the passing of Prince Philip as a pretext to maintain the UK’s current presence in the Scottish Parliament and in English local elections; doing so by shaping the public’s perceptions to match long-term conditioned-biases and the foreseeable hindsight bias resulting in ‘coincidental’ associative-propaganda ‘consequences’ of their North Korean style broadcast ‘outpouring’, the subsequent tsunami of ‘complaints’ to the BBC and the ‘news’ of their creation – then retraction – of the bespoke online form for ‘HRH RIP’ complaints… (35-40 mins)

We’ll never know if this peculiar product of aristocratic entitlement will ever come back as a eugenicist virus, however Prince Philip – or rather his revisionist-media ‘reincarnation’ – are about to contribute nonetheless to sustaining (as he also inferred) their privileged position at the top their centuries-long hierarchical structures.

In ‘UK’ and most certainly in Scotland and Wales there is no ‘democracy’. We merely have the crumbling facade of one as projected through the British mainstream and ‘social’ media platforms, which are orchestrated to manage voter expectations then deliver an ‘acceptable’ result in accordance with the predetermined political propaganda picture being painted. We have in fact been naive and deluded to believe that power would deliver democracy through its own platforms.

Contrast the media’s cyclical omission and downplaying of today’s Tory corruption compared to their coverage leading into the 1997 General Election, when the UK media reported reams of Tory corruption – giving us the illusion of a free media holding power to account – but which was actually just business as usual whereby ‘The Party’ simply continued to shape our perceptions to engineer their own agenda which needed to change their colour from blue to red; as without Blair & ‘New Labour’ – the UK would’ve been seen domestically and globally for what it really is; a one party State since Thatcher with a Tory Government in power to this very day.

“It is the absolute right of the State to supervise the formation of public opinion”. Joseph Goebbels

Think about it: why was Jeremy Corbyn vilified by the British media throughout his leadership of the Opposition, yet Starmer hasn’t? Because for ‘some reason’ Starmer being in charge of the ‘Opposition’ suits the UK elite just fine.

By sustaining our delusion of a ‘free and fair’ media, the UK political-media elite allowed us to perceive and believe we were making informed, autonomous and even ‘morally’-led decisions to elect UK governments, when in fact we’ve been led by the mass-psychosis nose by ‘inevitability narrative’ (similar to Chomsky’s “manufacturing consent”) to deliver ‘The Party’s’ predetermined outcomes.

This is how British (& US) democracy really works and how the Brexit 52/48% referendum ‘result’ was also drip-fed delivered by Etonian ‘Nudge Unit’ to match our ‘democratic’ experience expectations, which are subsequently reinforced by both the entire UK media and our individual and collective hindsight bias and crowd conformity, housed in our all-too-human ego-defence mechanisms which rationalise and accept all manner of outcomes and explanations – and to reconcile ourselves with them no matter how implausible – because the human condition would rather rationalise the ‘democratic’ con, than face-up to having been duped by it.

This is how Murdoch has always been able to explain away his reputation as Prime Ministerial ‘king maker’ and why this reputation only works in the UK;

Because it’s all self-contained technocrat theatre in which he plays the leading role in the same ‘ostensibly diverse‘ but actually ‘uniform media‘ – both ‘left’ and ‘right’ – and which in 1997, with the ‘centre-left’ press having been so successfully neutered during the decades-long walk to tyranny, had strategised to use Murdoch’s proto-fascist rag aka ‘The Sun‘, to persuade millions of middle class Tories to counter their previous media-programming and switch mass ‘moralistic’ perceptions and make the ‘common sense’ case for Tony Blair’s ‘New‘ version of Labour – and with it – ‘The Party’ normalised and successfully shifted the Overton Window ever further towards the far-right; towards fascism.

“A media system wants ostensible diversity that conceals an actual uniformity”. Joseph Goebbels “He [Tony Blair] said that they would be able to take Baghdad without a bloodbath and that in the end the Iraqi’s would be celebrating. And on both of those points he has been proved conclusively right. It would be entirely ungracious even for his critics, not to acknowledge he stands a larger man and a stronger Prime Minister as a result”. Andrew Marr, BBC (video excerpt here via Double Down News)

And so installing Blair in the first place wasn’t actually that difficult an ask, when we consider the persuasive power of the press on its Thatcherite target-audience – especially The Sun – to invent its own realities i.e. to lie through its back teeth at any given point, in order to shape perception and public ‘opinion’ required to support, retain and command the loyalty of those power structures necessary to secure their grip on political power which was always preparing for future dictatorship; the roots of which are always in the streets.

“Whoever can conquer the street will one day conquer the state, for every form of power politics and any dictatorship-run state has its roots in the street”. Joseph Goebbels

Which is why to this very day in such an established ‘democracy’ supposedly the ‘envy‘ of the world…

‘From the bias-seeding political ‘opinion’ polls, through to the mutually-reinforcing press & broadcast media delivering The Party’s predetermined, FPTP plebiscite outcome housed in a self-contained, self-congratulatory, confirmatory-contagion shade of timely red or perennial blue; it’s all an orchestrated, mass-psychosis charade. It’s a ‘pseudo-reality’ exercise in emotionally charged, behaviourally driven expectation management. In short, it’s all a fixed ‘democratic Matrix’. Gaslighting Gilligan’s ‘Tedious Twitter Twaddle’ (2017)

…there’s been a wholesale absence of an organised and sustained mainstream media-led charge by the press, the BBC, ITN or Sky ‘News‘ challenging this current corrupt, criminal Tory Government; because they’re all the same elite-dominated propaganda machine that in the contemporary era had always been leading towards something called ‘Brexit‘ since Thatcher, via Brexit: A Very British Fascist Coup’ (2017).

“The ruling class in every age have tried to impose a false view of the world upon their followers”. Orwell, ‘1984’. “Shall I tell you a terrible truth about politics and human nature and the way we live our lives? You can probably make a good case for almost any course of action.” Boris Johnson (2013)

This is also why there’s been a wholesale absence of public pressure and demand for subsequent investigations and arrests. Only now with #ToryAnalytica’s #BrexitCoup failing and nearing daily to the point of implosion, having cyclically crossed the rubicon – most recently during Spring 2017 – the Etonian elite (& their US GOP #TrumpPutin partners) have absolutely zero choice but to pursue a version of their original agenda in order to, well, survive;

‘…A survival which #ToryAnalytica quite correctly see as being theirs or ours; the 1% or the 99%. Which means if they’re to succeed at our expense, whatever they visit upon us needs to be on an epochal, global scale. It needs to be a ‘Black Swan’ event that will ensure that both the UK police and military personnel’s very own survival depends on sustaining the current hierarchical State structures and therefore behave uncompromisingly and ruthlessly with a frightened, cowering population.’ From ‘Yellowhammer Anagram: ‘Orwell Mayhem’ by Cummings “Meltdown” Symbolism’ (2019)

Make no mistake, regardless of whatever societal-crippling pretext(s) the Etonian #ToryAnalytica cartel come up with – if they’re not stopped – they will attempt to militarise. I absolutely guarantee it. Why? Because militarisation is a pivotal element of a coup d’etat; especially a failing one;

Video recorded on 25th June 2018, on the first anniversary of going to Berlin and warning the German Bundes Polizei & Irish Embassy on 250617, of the inevitable #ToryAnalytica coup d’etat militarisation of Brexit and the arrival of a US/UK-led global fascism; “Being in a minority, even in a minority of one, did not make you mad. There was truth and there was untruth, and if you clung to the truth even against the whole world, you were not mad”. Orwell, ‘1984’.

Ultimately, #ToryAnalytica cannot now succeed on their own originally intended terms. But they can have a measure of ‘success’ at society’s expense in order to deliver aspects of their tyrannical agendas for others to un/wittingly pick-up the baton at a later time and opportunity. And there’s always opportunities for these psychopaths – because they manufacture and manipulate them. Besides, inflicting chaos on the ordinary people of this island is ‘sport’ to the Tories and so they’ll take as many of us down with them as they can. Given their track record that really shouldn’t come as a surprise by now. It’s just in their ‘Dark Triad’ Machiavellian, narcissistic and psychopathy nature and behaviour, which can also be observed in a deliberate ‘duping delight‘ smirk.

“Fascism, steeped in pathological hypocrisy, superiority entitlement and inveterate victimhood, is the group-characteristic extension of narcissism and is the Machiavellian-patriotic, militarised business model extension of joint Government and corporate engineered crisis-capitalism’. ‘Gaslighting Gilligan’s’ #NarcissistFascist Characteristics (2017).

You see what we never understood – because they hid from us who and what they really were – was that for the feudal British kleptocracy to cyclically work for the top-end of their globally-ambitious hierarchy, the middle-working classes have to be cyclically defeated UK-domestically, through dignity deprivation and mass induced depression for the drill-down division of society via joined-up legislation, policy and propaganda.

This #HostileEnvironment I interpret, has been achieved and normalised over the course of decades but was made more concentrated since 2008, to engineer six predictable-response ‘push and pullemotional-behavioural drivers; Invalidate, Emasculate, Isolate, Agitate and Segregate every possible demographic, yet upon a militarisation trigger – Amalgamate the population under the one ‘patriotic’ identity; the British (& US) identity.

All of which – most recently achieved by exploiting and exacerbating COVID – is still deliberately wearing-down the population in #ToryAnalytica’s delayed, yet ongoing attempts to mobilise their agenda housed in my ‘Dark Triad Model for Global Fascism’. (Clearer version at page 88).

“Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in shapes of your own choosing”. Orwell, ‘1984’.

All of which was (is) preparation to gaslight set-up the working poor population by stoically ‘uniting’ us in grief, victimhood and war in order to coerce us into our patriotic Volksgemeinschaft purpose; to go and lose our lives, limbs and minds on foreign battlefields fighting the aristocracy’s cyclically-fictitious ‘enemies’.

This has not, nor ever has it been for our ‘freedom’ or their ‘democracy’ – but for power and control over their people and natural resources. It’s the British (& US) establishment way and always has been. It’s just a matter of indoctrinated perspective by ‘Fascism & Empire: Militarist-Capitalist Branding (Brexit) Bias by Patriotic Commission & Camouflaged Omission’ (2017).

“The most powerful form of lie is the omission”. Orwell, ‘1984’.

In the meantime, until #ToryAnalytica can deliver their own ‘get-out-of-jail-free-card’ by Black Swan event, they must continue writing their versions of our future history in the present; a crucial aspect of which is keeping-up the pretence of being a ‘United’ Kingdom and a ‘democracy’ which locks Scotland, Wales and England into ‘Brexit & A Forever Phantom ‘Country’ Called ‘Great Britain’ (2019).

Well here’s the news: the British State and its ‘democracy’ is Rome reborn. It’s a sick lie that doesn’t work for any of the working masses on this island, nor of course in Northern Ireland. Why? Because it was never meant to. Because we plebs are expendable commodities to be controlled and culled at will by our ‘betters‘ in order they can turn a profit, sustain their wealth and through it – retain their political power and therefore our economic and military power. Plus – they really just hate you.

“Violence is the ultimate boundary force on behavior; this, if you can understand how the logic of violence will change, you can usefully predict where people will be dropping or picking up the equivalent of one-hundred-dollar bills in the future”. The Sovereign Individual (1996) JD Davidson & Lord William Rees-Mogg (father of Jacob Rees-Mogg MP & Annunziata Rees-Mogg former Brexit Party MEP – later defected to the Tories).

This is why having sustained the economic violence through ‘austerity‘ apartheid, attempted militarisation of mainland Britain is inevitable as I’ve outlined in ‘Brexit: All Roads Lead to Rome – Militarisation’ (2018) and which currently, the engineered violence in Northern Ireland is but the normalised pre-cursor intended to ‘organically’, yet specifically ‘spread’ violence to oil and natural resources rich Scotland; violence which Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg and co. will have to visit on Welsh and English towns and cities, in case the mask should slip from “our precious Union” being about anything other than Scotland’s resources, and for which I have no absolutely no doubt #ToryAnalytica will pay for some of these experienced paramilitaries – aka terrorists – to be ‘transitioned‘ into Scots communities.

“One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one MAKES THE REVOLUTION in order to establish a dictatorship”. Orwell, ‘1984’.

Far from being a ‘benevolent’ State, the British identity has itself been the ideological, top-down corporate-political propaganda construct used by the Etonian elite to siphon off the industry and wealth of the working masses throughout this island – and far beyond – to coerce us into handing over our most precious of resources – our children – with our ‘#PatrioticPoverty Volksgemeinschaft ‘State’ (2020) brainwashed permission.

“Children have never been very good at listening to their elders but they have never failed to imitate them”. James A. Baldwin

With this decades long drip-fed ‘charitable’ construct itself designed to dovetail with and reinforce our ‘#PatrioticProgramming: from Toddler to Teenager to Tabloidhood’ (2017) which the English working masses in particular are waking up to – when they finally do – it’s game over for the entire British elite estate. This is yet another reason why the Westminster aristocracy have to break the back of the working masses first.

“He alone who owns the youth, gains the future”. Adolf Hitler.

But right now, whilst they’re still getting away with their murderous charade the nearest crocodile to the Etonian canoe is the ‘threat’ of ‘Scottish’ democracy; a ‘democracy’ which is exclusively owned, shaped, managed and contained by the British (& US) corporate State.

Honestly, how naive were we all – north and south of the border – to believe that a centuries-long power would remotely risk relinquishing any control over the UK population through its own corporate-political platforms, housed in a so-called ‘free and fair’ press and broadcast media……which in the above 2019 graph demonstrates the UK mainstream media is least trusted, as well as European-wide mistrust of ‘social’ media Facebook and Twitter platforms;

“Maybe someone dies in a terrorist attack coordinated on our tools. And we still connect people”. Andrew Bosworth, Facebook VP – 18th June 2016. ‘#OpFukuglaschu’ (2018).

Currently in UK the Etonian ‘Big Brother’ elite are faced with the prospect of an absolute rout of its Unionist parties by Alex Salmond’s Alba Party in the Regional/List seats in the Scottish Parliament elections on the 6th May.

So the Westminster/Whitehall cartel need to be able to ‘explain away’ some of the unlikeliest of Unionist holds in order to ‘legitimately’ lock out as many of The Alba Party as possible, who with independence heavyweight Alex Salmond at the helm, are set to capitalise on the near million second votes the SNP gained across Scotland in 2016 – but which due to the D’Hondt Additional Member System (AMS) were ‘wasted’, returning only four SNP MSP’s. This is because the D’Hondt methodology applied to the Regional/List vote effectively handicaps a party based on candidate successes in the first, ‘First Past The Post’ (FPTP) Constituency vote.

To make things abundantly clear; in 2016 in this combined FPTP/AMS Proportional Representation (PR) system, because SNP candidates did so well in the Constituency (first) vote, they barely secured any Parliamentary seats in the Regional/List (second) vote. Whereas because the unpopular Unionist politicians and parties performed so poorly in the Constituency vote, they romped the second AMS vote with a comparatively paltry number of votes.

This meant that in 2016, even though the SNP secured 137,000 second votes in Alex Salmond’s North East region, the D’Hondt AMS saw the SNP fail to take a single seat, whereas on substantially less votes the Unionist parties secured all seven regional AMS seats.

To clarify also, this mixed FPTP/AMS PR system is a fair one; but not when it’s designed purpose from the outset was for the very same overbearing British State ideologically – and soon to be violently opposed to Scotland’s independence…

Rigged: not simply to keep the ‘Nats’ out of unilateral power but to keep the Union in Holyrood.

…to exploit and parachute in their Westminster puppets on a fraction of the votes enveloped within a structural system owned and run by the British elite, for the benefit of the British elite; from pollsters, to mainstream and social media platforms, to the Electoral Commission, the Information Commissioners Office and Metropolitan Police – all of which have shown themselves to be compromised at the most senior levels throughout the corrupt, criminal Brexit ‘referendum’.

The AMS D’Hondt system is the only reason why there’s the appearance of a sizeable Unionist presence in the Holyrood Parliament where – because there’s no positive case for The Union – knowing their third-rate political actors are unable to compete with SNP on policies or personalities in their Constituencies – are quite content to settle for (before the Alba Party formed) a virtually guaranteed List seat.

And which upon taking these Westminster ‘gamed’ seats in Holyrood, then take their instructions from an ideologically foreign power, from their red and blue Westminster bosses whose Downing Street ‘nudge unit’ propagandists – the ‘Behavioural Insights Team’ established in 2010 under David Cameron – create cheap, adversarial, antagonistic soundbites for their UK corporate mainstream media partners to print and broadcast during prime time as so-called ‘Scottish’ politics, ‘news’ and debates. A political scene in which future history is recorded in the present to show a ‘majority’ of Unionists in a staged, theatrically-British ‘State’ feeding the illusion of Scotland’s ‘democracy’.

“Men in general judge more from appearances than from reality. All men have eyes, but few have the gift of penetration”. Machiavelli

And so how is Whitehall set to ‘explain away’ a significant increase in their 2021 second vote numbers for Unionist candidates, and a decrease in the independence vote compared to 2016?

Simple – we’re witnessing it. Some are even feeling it. And because I’m about to tell you about it, #ToryAnalytica will in all probability need to invent further, less plausible, yet dangerously desperate pretexts.

As I’ve explained in some detail in ‘The Flatscreen Universe: Scotland’s Cytokine Storm’ (2021) a combination of mainstream media propaganda and #ToryAnalytica social media pages and sock-puppet propaganda plants, are posting agitating ‘infighting’ narratives designed to offend. Crucial to this aspect is sustaining the usual attacks on the SNP but also seeding ‘Alba Party split the vote’ or ‘pop-up party’ and ‘Indy before morality’ messaging. These are augmented by the bog-standard personal attacks on both Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon to foment division, which is duly amplified by Facebook algorithms and attention seeking saddos desperate to be noticed. We all know the type; as do Facebook executives, the Downing Street nudge unit, the British Army’s 77 Squadron and GCHQ: aka #ToryAnalytica.

And so it’s against this technological ‘divide and rule’ propaganda picture that the Etonian elite intend(ed) to use the wholly predictable demise of Prince Philip at the ripe old age of 99 years – as the pretext to ‘justify’ Unionist holds in key Regional seats; certainly around Scotland’s oil hubs, the capital and border.

Here’s my rationale: if you accept – quite logically and observantly as is the generally acknowledged case – that as well as media-generated ‘HRH RIP’ cover was to continue to protect the #ToryAnalytica Cabinet from the unfolding economic chaos of Brexit, their reigniting of ‘The Troubles’ in the north of Ireland and the propaganda omission of 100,000+ COVID deaths through so-called “cyclical incompetence” and their inconsistent mixed messaging and corporate-nepotistic corruption – then to be consistent you must also accept the following effects too – because again, we can all observe;

that in the images and music of the wall-to-wall ‘North Korean’ canonisation coverage of HRH Duke of Edinburgh’s life, there is (for some) an emotionalising, nostalgic propaganda treasure trove transporting those of a certain age back to ‘better’ British times.

And when you process that given his age the Etonian elite knew for a considerable time that HRH was about to shuffle off this mortal coil and as such, had already produced their programming in preparation to be brought out of deep-freeze at the necessary moment. And it just so happens – quite coincidentally I’m sure – that ‘necessary moment’ resulting in this relentless, revisionist, pre-prepared ‘HRH RIP’ propaganda construct, has the strategic potential to see the beginnings of a Unionist ‘bounce’ pretext taking shape – by perception – prior to the Holyrood elections.

To be clear, this ‘bounce’, this ‘fillip’ doesn’t actually need to result in any genuine votes – just the sub/consciously pre-planted notion for the potential of it in advance by indirect subliminal association

‘Top adviser to Richard Nixon admitted that ‘War on Drugs’ was policy tool to go after anti-war protesters and ‘black people’. New York Daily News (2016)

…for the electorate to lap-up and accept in their individual and collective conditioned and hindsight bias ‘State’ when one of the fascist tabloids ‘suggests’ there was a ‘Philip fillip’, by say, I dunno, a premeditated, self-congratulatory gaslight headline reading something like:


…for the other corporate press and State broadcasters to regurgitate for the electorate to respond as the reinforced ‘truth’ – exactly as they did in the hours and days after Leave ‘won’ the Brexit referendum (& Trump in the US) which were followed by typical conversions such as “Well, it makes sense. We should’ve seen it coming” or “I saw it coming” – again, all housed in our conditioned and hindsight bias underpinned by ego-defence mechanisms.

“Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities”. Voltaire

This was how the Brexit referendum ‘result’ (& Trump Presidency) was delivered in 2016; by drip-fed expectation management to shape perceptions delivered principally by mainstream media as I set-out in ‘Tedious Twitter Twaddle’ (2017) – and still are today.

“I use emotion for the many and reserve reason for the few”. Adolf Hitler

Similarly in the 2014 ‘referendum’ – which despite it actually being an all-out propaganda war waged against Scotland – the Yes campaign began to take the lead in the days before the 18th September – complete with Russian election ‘observers’ which we now know were already working with the Tories own Putin regime partners.

The British State managed Scottish public perceptions by ‘inevitability narrative’ to prepare us in advance to readily accept defeat – by infamously, yet calculatedly riding a coach and horses through Purdah – which we came to know as ‘The Vow’.

“The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting”. Sun Tzu.

Preceded by the cyclically injected “silent majority” narrative the Better Together campaign claimed to have, ‘The Vow’ had no political mandate or legitimate standing. Nor was it by itself – as many still believe – a game changer which changed thousands of minds with an undemocratic last-minute ‘promise’.

Passed off as the brainchild of ‘Scottish‘ Daily Record ‘journalist‘ Murray Foote (whose since allegedly ‘shifted’ from No to Yes and now working within the SNP!) ‘The Vow’ I’m convinced was the work of the Downing Street ‘Behavioural Insights Team‘ which David Cameron established four years earlier in 2010, and was itself part of the advanced psychological softening-up of the Scots electorate by public relations propaganda stunt, not simply to defeat democracy but specifically to ‘nudge‘ the Yes support towards their channelled political-perception direction to accept defeat – despite the reality on the ground.

“Never attempt to win by force, what can be won by deception”. Machiavelli

Likewise when a near million EU Remainers marched in London in 2018 & 2019, during which the UK media tried to ‘overlook’, the 2016 Brexit referendum result itself was delivered in the first place by these same ‘trusted’ networks having orchestrated the cyclically-reinforced platforming of Farage/UKIP, who without a single UK Parliamentary seat…

…was subsequently reinvented to morph into The Brexit Party and now Reform Party but which have collectively, been the Tories own political sock-puppet parties all along, whose role was to keep creating the Overton Window space on the fascist far-right for the Tories themselves to step into, whilst simultaneously seeding enough doubt in the electorates mind to suggest Farage and UKIP might actually win.

By putting the ideologically drip-fed UKIP cart-before-the-horse, Brexit was yet another mass psychosocial-engineering effort delivered by a tiny select elite who still saturate and dominate our TV screens as ‘journalists’ and as ‘news’ and current affairs presenters today, and who with their Machiavellian amber, blue and red Tory political plants, collectively made this predetermined outcome a potential ‘reality‘ and in doing so made the ‘possible’ absolutely probable; simply by driving and delivering on our manipulated perceptions to match with our conditioned bias experience – aka – UK ‘democracy’.

And it was also how the Trump Presidency ‘win‘ was sold then accepted by the entire US population and which if you’re new to ‘Gaslighting Gilligan’ then you need to process that #ToryAnalytica’s Brexit and the #TrumpPutin Presidency were (are) the same failing coup, as I set out in May 2019 (pre-COVID!) in ‘Trump & Brexit: The ‘#DarkTriad’ Model for a Global Fascist Contagion’ (2019).

“Though fraud in all other actions be odious, in matters of war it is laudable and glorious. And he who overcomes his enemies by such stratagem is as much to be praised, as he who overcomes them by force”. Machiavelli

The HRH funeral today will fill much of our TV’s and papers this weekend with military pomp and football stadia minute silences, principally to involve, target and psychologically ‘recruit’ Scotland – and the future – as the Tory propagandist ‘One Nation Britain. And will all be seamlessly carried through into history to dovetail with the media’s wider, pervasive British patriotic and nostalgia pretexts. You don’t even have to look that hard to see it. It’s plastered across every communications medium but it’s been so drip-fed normalised, with the plastic patriotic programming so vast – it’s virtually invisible. But it’s there, on Channel 4 on Sunday evening for example;

“Propaganda does not deceive people; it merely helps them to deceive themselves”. Eric Hoffer

In fact, many of our corporate supermarket shelves are now a drip-fed tsunami of Union flagged food produce propaganda and if you listen really carefully in some corporate chains (certainly in Morrison’s) you can hear some classic tunes taking you back to yesteryear. It’s all part of the Volksgemeinschaft ‘people’s community’ propaganda construct, as I’ve laid out in ‘V for ‘#Volksgemeinschaft’ – We’re All In It Together – Or Else’ (2020)

…which in Scotland has been terrifyingly ‘normalised‘ to look like precedentedGleichschaltung Gaslighting: The Eradication of Scots Historic-Cultural Identity’ (2017).

But back to the Prince Philip fillip. In addition to the standard tsunami of Stockholm Syndrome coverage, there’s already been additional propaganda nuggets shoring-up the overall HRH ‘bounce’ inevitability narrative; the one where the BBC ‘admitted’ to having gone ‘OTT’ (over the top) on their coverage, which was duly echo-orchestrated across the ‘free and fair’ media playing the public like a fiddle.

Not only that, but for the BBC – a flagrantly propagandist organisation now outed most recently by its cyclical-propaganda omissions of Tory corruption – to ‘transparently’ announce they then had to ‘pull’ their bespoke ‘HRH RIP’ online complaints form.

“Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play”. Joseph Goebbels

Think about it. The BBC can openly report on their 100,000+ complaints for going OTT on Prince Philip propaganda – but not openly report on the significant number of complaints they must have had for their propaganda omission of the UK Government’s 100,000+ COVID deaths.

This is because the ‘complaints’ and the pulling of the specific HRH RIP complaints form, are yet further fabrications and embellished ‘facts’ being dutifully perpetuated by their press cohorts. However this aspect of the propaganda initiative had become such a desperate sell the British State has just overplayed its propaganda playbook hand. Downing Street’s ‘Behavioural Insights Team’ – the ‘Nudge Unit’ – has classically overcompensated and tried too hard to sell its scripted theatre, to drive perceptions and manage expectations – not reflect votes.

This current softening-up – this gaslighting steeped in all manner of misdirection – is preparing Scotland, the UK population and world to accept and to buy-in to the Holyrood result without question. And there’ll no doubt be other ‘inevitability narratives’ similar to the “silent majority” (a President Nixon narrative) softening-up of Scotland through #RapeClauseRuth Davidson’s ‘admission’ that she and the No campaign broke electoral law to ‘sample’ the postal votes and tell the viewing audience on the evening of 18th September 2014, that ‘Better Together’ were “incredibly encouraged“.

Which was the exact same postal vote propaganda playbook Laura Kuenssberg and Dominic Raab were also ‘Nudge Unit‘ instructed to use prior to #ToryAnalytica’s unprecedented ‘Red Wall’ win in December 2019 – giving them an unassailable 80 seat ‘majority’ and an elective dictatorship to vote in effect – by decree – on all manner of totalitarian legislation such as; the UK Government ‘Overseas Operations (Service Personnel & Veterans) Bill‘ – effectively doing away with The Geneva Convention; ‘The Covert Human Intelligence Sources Act (2021)’ which is licence to ‘legitimise’ UK State sponsored rape, torture & murder within UK; and the recent attempt to force through a ‘Police, Courts, Sentencing & Crime Bill‘ which is yet another fascist State charter.

All of which is designed to augment the end of The Senedd Cymru and Scotland’s Holyrood Parliament through the ‘Internal Market Bill (now Act) – A UK Enabling Act, Anschluss, Regime Change, A Soldier’s Psychological Tool & ‘Rope-A-Dope’ Distraction’ (2020) and with it, the inevitable militarised consequences (screenshot below) which is psychological softening-up and preparing to blame the Scots, for when the British State attempts to redirect their own ‘players’, their own terrorist assets from Northern Ireland to Scotland in order to ‘justify’ troop/proxy force deployment.

BBC ‘Scotland’ (16th & 23rd March 2021) a ‘News & Factual’ programme titled ‘The War Next Door: Scotland & The Troubles’, with the description ‘There is concern that The Troubles could spill over into Scotland’. ‘This is why BBC Question Time [14th Jan’21] continued with the ongoing British State propaganda campaign, not only to downplay the fact that domestically, ‘Global Britain’ is being deliberately driven towards becoming a failed State, but to spin Scotland as a basket-case too in order to “manufacture consent” (Chomsky) that ‘justifies’ a British military presence – a military occupation – on the streets of yet another neighbouring Celt nation’. From ‘Tory Brexit: Angling for the Occupation of Scotland’ (2021) written 16th January 2021 – two months before the above programming was aired.

So here’s the thing: between the utterly discredited UK mainstream media, Facebook’s algorithms and attention seeking saddos fishing for clicks and their #ToryAnalytica sock-puppet pages and Twitter accounts, the Etonian propaganda Philip fillip cannot by itself (certainly not after this!) sustain their ‘inevitability narrative’ to create the very British ‘bounce’ needed to justify the unlikeliest of Unionist ‘successes’ in Holyrood 2021.

The Tory cartel are going to need something ‘unexpected‘; something to take the wind out Scotland’s sails, to distract and detach the electorate from their collective cognitive analytical abilities.

An unanticipated shock perhaps, not unlike an impossible 21st century high-rise block of flats funeral-pyre in a developed country, that will rely on the same old Etonian structures to rally around the population and launch the ‘Great British’ lifeboats to ‘rescue’ Scotland; to gaslight ‘guide’ us through some emotional wreckage – in order to stoically-script steer the sinking HMS BrexitBritain away from the Scottish rocks.

Or perhaps self-sabotage something – or someone – so emblematically British, so dyed-in-the-red-white-and-blue-wool that the Union can engineer a Machiavellian tragedy to milk sympathy for itself; to narrative nudge just enough Unionist politicians ‘over the line’ purely by pre-planted public perception – like ‘The Vow’ – to ‘prevent’ a significant Independence majority…

…and at the very least, simultaneously create such a significant emotionalised distraction for the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Sky ‘News’ mainstream media to report on, they’re ‘legitimately’ able to simply ignore a significant Independence majority – as if it never existed at all – in preparation to write future history.

Or do something – or someone – so spectacular as to disrupt UK society altogether and guilt-shame coerce the Scots into ‘postponing’ the 2021 Holyrood election, to ‘temporarily’ delay Scotland bringing to an end the 300-year long march towards freedom by ‘morally’ compelling the Scots to stick indefinitely with the archaic, anti-democratic sycophantic status quo. And in doing so, after such a long, arranged and dysfunctional marriage, Scotland effectively dies from a displaced ‘broken heart’ – in order the Machiavellian British elite can sustain their ideological grip on resource rich Scotland, keeping us chained to their Orwellian ‘United‘ Kingdom, by Etonian, Edwardian means…

“Edward VII owed his triumphs primarily to himself through his profound knowledge of the human heart and the sagacity with which he could sort out the vices and weaknesses of individuals and people’s, to make these into the worst and most destructive weapons against them. Edwards Empire was built on eternal human folly and on the intellectual and moral degradation of the subject populations……There is no reason to assume that the British Monarchy having weathered all these storms, will ever be swept away. We must rather conclude that the Royals will stop at nothing, including a military coup, a fascist dictatorship or World War III, to avoid giving up power”. Webster G. Tarpley – ‘How Edward VII Started WWI‘ (1995)

The ‘Flatscreen Universe’: Scotland’s Cytokine Storm

by Johnny McNeill – unpublished author of ‘Gaslighting Gilligan‘ (© 2017 – free download – released via Berlin on 25th June 2017).

Part One: Cytokine Storm analogy, an ex-Squaddie’s intro to Scottish independence & initial journey to ‘Gaslighting Gilligan’. (30 mins)

Part Two: Three categories of ‘social’ media accounts in relation to ‘Karpman’s Drama Triangle’, which has been deliberately exacerbated by austerity, debt & ATOS/DWP induced depression & dignity deprivation leading to psychological & physical isolation, loss of identity & human contact (20 mins) all feeding into:

Part Three: ‘The Dark Triad Model for Fascism’; the cyclical-manipulation of ‘emotionalism for militarism’ being projected as our ‘reality’ through the ‘flatscreen universe’ in order to convert emotional capital into political, ideological (fascist) & financial capital. (15 mins)

Part Four: How the SNP have been made ideologically ‘tetraplegic’ by UK Government & media propaganda – and why they need a ‘family intervention’ to get back on the independence track. (15 mins)

🛑 Part One

Cytokines are small proteins released by many different cells in the body, including those of the immune system where they coordinate the body’s response against viral infection in the lungs. However sometimes the body’s response to infection can go into overdrive and in some patients, excessive or uncontrolled levels of cytokines are released which then activate more immune cells, resulting in hyperinflammation to seriously harm or even kill the patient’. The New Scientist

The analogous relevance of a cytokine storm is this: The viral infection is Westminster. The patient is Scotland. Our ‘immune system’ is the Yes movement and the propagandist ‘cytokine storm’ is a response-overload, causing our only independent defence to attack itself.

Scotland has been under overt and sustained stress and depression-inducing assault since 2014 through UK State structures and corporate media propaganda platforms, which has never ceased since to attack Scotland’s identity.

Seven long years after the initial onset of the viral symptoms, in 2021 as we’re on the verge of ‘recovery’ i.e. independence – our immune system is being worn down and sent into overdrive to attack itself. But the real tragedy is that most of it – is staged…

“Hitler knew intuitively, this Pavlovian truth, that conditioning installed in a state of stress and fatigue goes much deeper than conditioning installed at other times. This was why all his big speeches were organised at night which he wrote about in ‘Mein Kampfe’. He said it was done solely because people are much more tired at night and less capable of resisting persuasion than they would during the day, exploiting a great many of the weaknesses.” Aldous Huxley, philosopher, author ‘Brave New World’ (1932)

Scotland has undergone a relentless war for its very existence for 701 years (today being the anniversary of The Declaration of Abroath) and as propaganda platforms, techniques and technology evolved throughout the 20th century, the overwhelming majority of us – me included – never even realised it.

Such was my British Whig ‘history’ brainwashing which led me to join the army at 16 and serve 25+ years between 1985-2011, Scotland’s Independence never even featured on my radar as a conscious thought until Alex Salmond awoke me to it 2012/13.

Unlike the popular misconception stereotype that surrounds ex-Squaddies as being Monarchist ‘automatons’ in favour of the Union at any and all costs, it was actually many of my experiences as a Senior NCO, particularly as a Warrant Officer which set me on the path to independence and of course ‘Gaslighting Gilligan‘. Because everything is connected.

It was my final years and the circumstances which led to me being attached to the Civil Service and then my experiences within the MOD Defence Procurement Agency, which opened my eyes to the morally bankrupt dynamic of the ‘Old Boys’ networks. The infamous nepotism which permeates and trickles down from the senior MOD hierarchy, and which closes ranks to cover-up its corruption which is always sidestepped, often being brushed off as ‘incompetence’ or with the convenient “We are where we are” attitude to arbitrarily absolve itself of any real accountability for anything – which cyclically-led to Service personnel deaths and in one case – the death of a Sea Cadet.

A combination of these experiences, plus a year of travelling around the world when I left the Army across the US, to New Zealand (for the 2011 Rugby World Cup) and Australia were fun-packed and of course all very typical western experiences. But it was the last two months backpacking around South East Asia that had the most lasting profound effect on me. I was almost unable to reconcile the beauty of the region, the politeness of the people (mostly!) with the horrific accounts I read and watched in Cambodia’s ‘Killing Fields’ Museum and the Khmer Rouge S21 torture camp.

Being an ex-soldier I’d already I toured Vietnam from Hanoi to Saigon via Hue, visiting the ‘Hamburger Hill’ battle site and later stayed near My Lai for a couple days to visit the My Lai Massacre Museum which was incredibly moving. On reaching Saigon I visited the now renamed Vietnam War Museum which at the time was aptly titled ‘The American War Crimes Museum’.

The thing is, as a GenX ‘British’ kid spoon-fed my identity housed in WWII against the backdrop of the ‘Cold War’ where we were always the ‘good guys’ confirmed by James Bond conditioning, I only began waking up (far too slowly!) to the concept of British & US specific propaganda in 2003 during the lead-in to the Iraq War. I was serving in Germany at the time and all our vehicles had been deployed by ship and we were to follow by aircraft when they arrived. We knew the war was on and we’d all received yet another cocktail of jabs. Yet I could see Tony Blair at the Despatch Box telling the Parliament and people that war with Saddam Hussain wasn’t a done deal. But we knew it was. You don’t spend then send £billion$ on military hardware – just to bring it back “without a shot being fired”.

However, I never consciously processed it, (never mind question it). In hindsight I now recognise I’d had a bout of cognitive dissonance, to ignore what I knew to be true of my own experience because Blair’s lies clashed with my ‘force for good’ conditioning. And just as millions of people in UK who did back then (and are doing so again today through the ongoing Brexit and COVID corruption) I sub/consciously rationalised Blair’s words as being a necessary strategic piece of misdirection working towards Iraqi ‘democracy’. I now know this rationalisation simply enabled me to reconcile the conflicting messages with my ‘greater good’ indoctrination – which thankfully, though painfully at times, began to unravel just a year later and was dismantled by the time my military service came to an end in 2011.

However it was my three hours in the Vietnam War Museum in Saigon which at times left me feeling physically sick (and I’d seen some godawful sights in the first Iraq war) which confirmed my view of the US and of its perennial, ideological lapdog – the UK – as an unacknowledged Imperial force.

I’d also read ‘Blackwater: The Rise of The World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army’ by Jeremy Scahill just a few months before which made me begin to cognitively process that ‘mistakes’ made in military equipment procurement and in Theatre of Operations – weren’t always ‘mistakes’. Sometimes they were pretexts to optimise political and/or war profiteering opportunities. (I didn’t process the recyclable, domestic audience emotional capital generated from such ‘mistakes’ until ‘Gaslighting Gilligan’).

So, after all that, on my return to UK as soon as Scotland’s Independence became a conscious ‘choice’, I was a Yesser from the get-go.

Then 2014 happened. The so-called Scottish ‘referendum’. It was no such thing. It wasn’t even remotely a democratic exercise but a propaganda war waged by the British State to defeat democracy – not uphold it – which remains the case today. Scotland’s delusion – and that of the English and Welsh working masses in the 2016 Brexit ‘referendum’, was that power would actually deliver a free and fair democracy through its own State frameworks and media platforms.

Leading into the referendum I was working as the 2014 Commonwealth Games Venue Results Manager for the Rugby Sevens at Ibrox, knowing that as small part of that occasion I was helping put Scotland on the world stage to show them what we were really capable of, and in doing so help Scotland gain independence. How naive was I? Even then could see the same ‘Old Boys’ hypocrisy in action in the ‘Commonwealth of nations’ messaging throughout the British media and so when Glasgow 2014 finished in early August, as a late-comer to the Indy cause, I went full-throttle volunteering to help Yes Rutherglen where I was based at the time.

I tell you this because having seen in ‘social’ media this last week, Nicola Sturgeon being labelled a ‘Unionist plant’ and Alex Salmond a ‘traitor’ (we should automatically be very suspicious of these accounts) it’s mind-boggling to see how easily these divisive narratives are – like our emotions – effortlessly recycled to work wonders for the British State

Yes, both Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon are as fallible as any one of us and both have made poor choices. But neither are ‘traitors’ to Scottish independence. Both I strongly suspect have simply been befriended and duped by British State plants.

However both are fully committed from their own prism – as you and I are from ours – to achieving independence. Yet I’ve no doubt that after this piece, some who don’t know or simply dismiss my ‘Gaslighting Gilligan’ work will probably accuse me of either being a ‘traitor’ to independence or of being a ‘Unionist infiltrator’ which is all very ironic.

Video recorded on 25th June 2018, on the first anniversary of going to Berlin and warning the German Bundes Polizei & Irish Embassy on 250617, of the inevitable #ToryAnalytica coup d’etat militarisation of Brexit and the arrival of a US/UK-led global fascism; “Being in a minority, even in a minority of one, did not make you mad. There was truth and there was untruth, and if you clung to the truth even against the whole world, you were not mad”. Orwell, ‘1984’.

Especially given that until my ‘awakening’ between 2003 & 2005, I was a typically indoctrinated Squaddie and propaganda product of my ‘Britification’ programming. Indeed, I was one of the ‘Palindrome Parrots’ – ‘feed children prejudicial ignorance – ignorance prejudicial children feed’ – that years I later observed in Brexiteers in 2016/17 and wrote as ‘fiction‘;

“Writing fiction is the act of weaving a series of lies to arrive at a greater truth”. Khaled Hosseini.

Because before my British indoctrination began to unravel, Nicola Sturgeon never remotely featured on my radar and I had no time for ‘that’ Alex Salmond. But by 2012/13, with a little introspection I was able to process that I didn’t dislike or despise either of them; those ‘thoughts’ weren’t mine but my normalised, drip-fed media ‘training’; ‘Tedious Twitter Twaddle‘ (2017).

As a result, it was Alex Salmond specifically who awoke and inspired me towards independence in 2014, since when I’ve been a founder member of ‘Veterans for Scottish Independence 2.0’ (one of my more viewed speeches here if you’re interested) and like many who campaigned for Yes, on the 18th September 2014 I sat up through the night watching hope being smothered.

On the 19th, shell-shocked, I went to Edinburgh to meet some rugby pals and out of nowhere the cumulative effect of the previous six months caught up with me as I began bawling my eyes out in Waverley Station. In hindsight and with further perspective, I realise I reacted in such a way because – like most – I was emotionally invested not only in Scottish independence (of course!) but also in a naive belief that we lived in an actual democracy. (And which as I’ll explain – so too did England in 2016).

However it’s this very basic and evidentiary conclusion, which although the overwhelming majority of the Yes movement’s people and politicians have realised the UK media is ‘compromised’, we still refuse to process (throughout this entire island) this simple Occam’s Razor fact;

The UK (& US) Government, the BBC, their Murdoch-led ‘Atlantic Bridge’ corporate mainstream and Zuckerberg-led ‘social’ media platforms – are the exact same orchestrated policy and propaganda machine. There is no separation of media and political powers because they’re the same incestuous, ideological power.

Five years since the Brexit ‘referendum’ and the subsequent shitshow is only now seeing some ‘centre-left’ experts appear to be more open to the possibility that parts of UK media have been ‘compromised’ by Tory power. What? In the same way the media were ‘compromised’ by Blair and New Labour’s power leading into the 2003 Iraq war? That’s either wishful thinking trying to hold onto conditioned British-bias beliefs – or for some seemingly on the ‘centre-left’ – is part of their ‘O’Brien/Charrington’ cover. ‘Brexit’s Herded Ego’s: Feeding The Illusion Of A Functioning Democracy’ (2020).

Because the UK mainstream media are in fact the complicit propaganda arm of British elite estate that needs – and so creates – a conveyor belt of internal or external enemies; real or imagined, in order to steep itself in a manufactured ‘stoic’ victimhood and Volksgemeinschaft adversity which emotionally compels the population to “pull together”.

As such, like it or not, acknowledge it or not, Scotland in general and the Yes movement (& democracy) specifically, has been designated an internal enemy, as imagined by the British State. And which after a stressful seven years straight of being told how shite we are, is now being propaganda manipulated to exacerbate a Yes Scotland ‘cytokine storm’ – to attack our own; without us fully processing that because we’ve been conditioned to fight for our existence in one form or another since forever, we struggle to know who we are without fighting. And so by a sort of collective ‘trauma bonding’ we stick with what’s familiar no matter how destructive (common in abusive relationships) and play straight into Westminster’s hands – with their ‘help’ of course.

But it gets darker. Because if we’re not smart, Westminster won’t just fabricate the current ‘he said, she said’ online fight amongst ourselves, they’ll create through a continued process of normalisation the hostile environment they need to hold onto Scotland’s resource-wealth. And I can think of no worse hostile environment anywhere across these isles than the one created through the British presence in the north of Ireland throughout ‘The Troubles’, where 30 years of UK State sanctioned murder played on all ‘sides’, to play all ‘sides’ off against each other – and where their assets still remain. For now.

I say ‘for now‘ because it’s almost as if we’re being psychologically softened-up by an inevitability narrative for an all-too-familiar eventuality. Think about it: it’d be a very British breeze to redeploy those ‘assets‘. A thirty year proxy ‘civil war’ in Scotland might just about see out all those remaining oil revenues which are currently flowing to Westminster’s City of London banks and The White House’s Wall Street with the dark money proceeds being ‘washed’ by their Putin regime partners.

BBC ‘Scotland’ (16th & 23rd March 2021) a ‘News & Factual’ programme titled ‘The War Next Door: Scotland & The Troubles’, with the description ‘There is concern that The Troubles could spill over into Scotland’.

Don’t underestimate the evil of the British elite. They are without doubt unrivalled Machiavellian masters at fomenting and sustaining conflict and manufacturing divisions between those who have the same interests in independence. And if you doubt this possible look into the Irish Civil War of 1922/23 that turned the same side against one another; brother against brother. Which a century later, if you look at many of the similar socioeconomic issues; pervasive poverty, crippling rents, homelessness, male-suicide, unchecked corporate and police power etc – just as there is in the UK and US, you too can understand as I do – that there never actually needed to be a Union Flag flying over Dublin Castle, for the British ‘old guard’ to remain in charge of Ireland’s destiny.

And so in Scotland, just like typical domestic abuse victims, we’re apportioning some of the blame to ourselves and not giving ourselves enough credit for coming through what we have, with our dignity and self-respect – thus far – largely in tact.

Scotland has not only been a nation conditioned over 300 years to devalue and demean ourselves in the eyes of our children – only for them to perpetuate to their children, but since 2014 we have been subjected to an incessant, relentlessly sustained propaganda war by a bullying, overbearing ‘partner’ – the British State; an ideologically foreign State which through its corporate structures, principally media,‘Gleichshaltung Gaslighting – The Eradication of Scots Historic-Cultural Identity’ (2017)…

…has absolute and total control over Scotland and is working with purpose to isolate us from each other and the world; from our perceptions to our sea-ports, Westminster dictates to us the terms on which we’re allowed to interact with the outside world, how we are viewed by them – the EU in particular – and crucially, how we perceive ourselves and behave towards each other.

Seven years of recycled “too poor, too wee, too stupid” tropes have been taking their toll on our individual and collective psychological and emotional state and has become so ‘normalised‘ we’re seeing the same safe ‘Groundhog Day’ articles written by leading Indy commentators that could’ve been written in 2014 and have barely progressed towards anything remotely noteworthy in terms of any real analysis since.

Factor in the cumulative effects of Brexit economic destruction and over a year of trying to manage ‘COVID’ in this “minor entity in north Britain” (Lord George Robertson) being undermined by a hostile power’s media, whilst having zero control over our own airports and land border.

Under a constant barrage all of our waking lives, Scotland is functioning by a gaslight ‘reality’. We don’t even realise we’re a society being taken to the brink of a normalised insanity which will only take a spark to tip us into meltdown – then blame us for it as all accomplished gaslighters do – in order they or their proxy (by variation on the original plan housed in the #TrumpPutin Presidency) can then ride to our ‘rescue’; having induced mass stress and depression in order to ‘save’ us from ourselves, which some independence supporters it would appear – are falling over themselves to feed into.

A deep, calming, collective breath is needed to process all these things we’ve had to endure and to give ourselves a deserved ‘pat on the back’ for not going off the deep end already. However the signs are undoubtedly there. In this ‘State’ of mind all it’ll take is a trigger.

Think about this; other than Scotland, which other European nation underwent such a concentrated, psychologically sustained and emotionally manipulated attack for years on end from within – by its own elite? Answer: Germany.

And just as did the Nazi elite waged a gaslight war on the German domestic population prior to triggering the conventional war via ‘Operation Himmler’, the Westminster elite have too openly ‘declared war’ on devolution via their ‘Internal Market Act’, to end direct Scots and Welsh democracy. And it won’t end there – because as I set out in ‘Internal Market Bill – A UK Enabling Act, Anschluss, Regime Change, A Soldier’s Psychological Tool & ‘Rope-A-Dope’ Distraction’ (2020) – this legislation cannot be sustained without military force.

Only once again, instead of Scotland uniting at a pivotal point in our history, some SNP and Alba Party supporters appear to be falling into the same old cyclical trap housed in our manipulated, predictable emotional-behavioural responses. All played out on ‘social’ media to go the way of the Westminster system of politics; by polarising opinion, by creating bunkered-mindsets and ‘separate’ camps that ‘superiorly’ set out to offend and attack each other – without realising they’re actually attacking Holyrood’s very survival and Scotland’s future.

And so if you really want to help minimise the ‘in-fighting’ effects and how UK ‘democracy’ delivered the Brexit result itself – understand – the overwhelming majority of this current fallout is being generated by the exact same 2014 Scottish independence and 2016 Brexit referenda propaganda playbook which narratively split England in half 52% to 48% – and which in Scotland 2021 is merely an extension of the exact same propagandist cytokine storm.

Why? Because it allows people to self-perpetuate their own ‘reality’ and sense of ‘control’ by reinforcing their spoon-fed biases, which they often conflate with being ‘informed’ – and often – superiorly so.

For some however, tragically, sustaining a sense of emotionalised empowerment is more exciting than settling for boring straightforward facts like this one for example; a pivotal, personal, invisibly pervasive experience on the path to ‘Gaslighting Gilligan’. Like I said – everything is connected.

“The most powerful form of lie is the omission”. Orwell, ‘1984’.

And so the British and corporate State are only too willing to facilitate this ‘infighting’ via three basic categories of ‘social’ media accounts; two of which are completely obvious and generally accepted – but fuck me – we still keep falling for ‘It‘ north and south of the border – and beyond.

🛑 Part Two

“Maybe someone dies in a terrorist attack coordinated on our tools. And we still connect people”. Andrew Bosworth, Facebook VP – 18th June 2016.

“A media system wants ostensible diversity that conceals an actual uniformity”. Joseph Goebbels.

The three categories of accounts are;

1 State actors: #ToryAnalytica sock-puppets and bots managed by the British Army 77 Brigade, GCHQ and I strongly suspect the principal #AirstripOne hub on this island – RAF Croughton (of Anne Sacoolas hit & run infamy) – which is in effect a CIA outpost. These online operatives have either infiltrated existing Indy pages or created their own sock-puppet pages from fruition building up a rapport with genuine Indy followers, many of whom, especially those with co-dependency, insecurity or attachment issues having developed a ‘para-social relationship‘ with a ‘friend’. If this is the case, it’s entirely possible some Indy supporters have put their trust in nothing more than an anonymous avatar. And so if you’ve never met these people in person or been able to verify who they are outside of your screen, there remains risk of being duped by accounts that’s function is to emotionalise and manufacture outrage.

2 Facebook algorithms: Far from being the ‘friendly’, so-called ‘social’ media space it marketed itself as, Facebook is in fact a global ‘Volksgemeinschaft’ platform fishing not only for your personal information – but through ‘Attention Engineering’ – manipulates your emotions by tinkering with the neurological chemistry in your brain via posts emojis, likes, clicks and shares which can either be amplified or suppressed according to Facebook’s own profit and political-ideological agendas;

“Imagine where you take [Facebook attention engineering] to the extreme, where bad actors can manipulate swathes of people to do anything you want. It’s a really, really bad state of affairs. And we [users] compound the problem. We curate our lives around this perceived sense of perfection because we get [dopamine] rewarded in these short term signals with hearts, likes, thumbs up and we conflate that with ‘value’ and ‘truth’. But instead it’s a fake brittle popularity that’s short term and leaves you even more vacant and empty than before you did it, forcing you into this vicious cycle and you think ‘What’s the next thing I need to do now?’ because I need It back. Think about that compounded by 2 billion people and how people react to the perceptions of others. It’s just really bad… If you feed the beast that beast will destroy you. The short term dopamine driven feedback loops that we have created are destroying how society works; no civil discourse, no cooperation, misinformation, mistruth and it’s not an American problem, this is not about Russian ads. This is a global problem”. Chamath Palihapitiya, former Facebook Senior Executive 2007-11 (speaking here in 2018).

Facebook’s raison d’etre, having lured in and mined the personal information of a quarter of the planet’s population by branding it ‘social’ media, enabled people to easily connect and stay in touch. And many did so often by presenting the best image of themselves in the way they wish they really were. But Facebook was always an addictive trap for the sane and the sociopath alike and a narcissists wet-dream housed in a military grade (crisis) capitalist Volksgemeinschaft venture, that was always designed to drive individuals, communities, societies and global democracies – not reflect them – by simultaneously tapping into the worst of the human condition but most deviously, by tapping into the compassionate ‘best’ of us ‘It‘ also – counter-intuitively – brings out our entitled, ‘morally-superior‘ worst.

And so continues the cyclical arguments and clicks which in themselves boost the posts visibility by both algorithms and attention seekers. This is how British State and Facebook corporate engineered shit-stirring is given geographical free reign if it suits #ToryAnalytica narratives selling either emotionalism, tribalism, general division and in Scotland’s case – downplay the new Alba Party – in order to dovetail with UK mainstream media propaganda which mutually reinforces the theatre of democracy to promote elite agendas in the exact same manner as they did leading into (and since) 2016 in England via ‘UKIP MkII – The Brexit Party: An Inconvenient Spoof’ (2019).

…which are afforded fake likes/RT’s by Facebook/Twitter to reinforce a fake political ‘reality’ sewing confusion, doubt and conflict in order to manage voter expectations and deliver the predetermined outcome in accordance with the ‘inevitability narrative’ being set, which works very similarly to Chomsky’s ‘manufacturing consent’;

“The elite media determine, select, shape, control and restrict information in order to serve the interests of the dominant elite groups in society… There’s two targets for propaganda. One is the political class who are maybe 20% of the population that’s relatively well-educated, more or less articulate and play some kind of role in decision-making. They’re supposed to participate in society either as managers or cultural managers like teachers and writers and so on. They’re supposed to vote and play some role in the way economic, political and cultural life goes on. Now their consent is crucial. That’s the one group that has to be deeply indoctrinated. Then there’s maybe 80% of the population whose main function is to follow orders and not to think or pay attention to anything. And they’re the ones who usually pay the costs”. Noam Chomsky, political philosopher, author ‘Manufacturing Consent’ (1988)

3 Mr/Miss/Mrs Angry: Genuinely upset Indy supporters who don’t realise much of their anger has been manipulated and shaped in the first place by the most accomplished, most advanced and tightly-knit propaganda machine humanity has ever known. Because surely by now we must understand that all social media platforms – without exception – and mainstream media ‘news’ outlets are the same machine yes?

And this exact same UK corporate machine is feeding into and exacerbating Points 1 & 2; actors and algorithms, which just like the orchestrated media-platformed amplified support was for Farage and Brexit, is now selling Scotland the amplified illusion of support for the Union – including via the Tory stalking horse ‘Alliance For Unity’ party (same as Farage’s UKIP, Brexit Party & now Reform Party in England) and via the psychological reinforcement exercise that is the ‘’ web-page (I suppose ‘silent majority’ would arouse too much suspicion this time around!) which is also a prescient title for a political party if you want to write future history in the present.

“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past”. Orwell, ‘1984’.

Wholly controlled by the British State, the media selling this ‘split’ in the Yes movement is also perpetuated by influential independence bloggers who when ‘attacked’ online – most probably by #ToryAnalytica coordinated sock puppet accounts – then write a ‘victim statement’ which they must know will be recycled by their followers to inadvertently feed into the ‘us v them’ narratives. Whereas the pragmatic course of action would be to simply withdraw, ignore the ‘attacks’ and accusations, take some respite and come back when ready. (Though I have to say having been to war, my inner-Squaddie has zero fucking patience for adults who voluntarily make their reputation online and an income stream from complete strangers, then bleat they’re being ‘attacked’ with words which hurt their feelings. How about getting some perspective?)

So what can we do to counter this? To mitigate the divide and rule effects of the emotional manipulation? It’s quite simple. Apply some self-discipline, common sense and mutual understanding.

Stop engaging with highly emotive, polarising posts that are never meant to arrive at a consensus and recognise that there’s UK & US State-corporate actors working against Scotland and democracy as a whole throughout this island before, during and after the 2016 Brexit ‘referendum’, which was itself delivered, in part, via a deliberate, pre-induced mass depression seeded in a normalised ‘Patriotic Poverty MBE – Volksgemeinschaft ‘State’ (2020)

…designed to tap into our susceptibilities housed in our individual and collective Karpman’s Drama Triangle (see ‘Kitchener’s Karpman Kleptocracy – The Contemporary KKK’ page 117) and human propensity to engage the Victim[hood], Rescuer & Persecutor roles.

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country”. Edward Bernays (1928)

And so we must process too that the overwhelming majority of people who make the most noise are often overcompensating for something they’re missing emotionally or spiritually. And who with minimal effort sub/consciously engineer the circumstances themselves just to feel something so that they can briefly shake the emptiness within, through a sense of fleeting yet faked form of emotionalised ‘empowerment’ – to “take back control” – they need to fill a hole that can’t be filled online but in counselling. Because knowing us better than we know ourselves, the ‘hive-mind hole’ was engineered by the elite, steeped in our unconscious in order they could cyclically exploit ‘It‘ in us. This brief excerpt is what part of It looked like to me via ‘fiction’ in 2016/17 and still does today.

‘This was how they were heard, these perfectly-primed cyber-suicide bombers desperate to leave a ‘momentary legacy’, to fleeting mark their lonely place on the lonely planet; to mean something, to feel something, anything trapped in their unfulfilled regrets laden existences’. (pg 179)

As such some genuine independence supporters are no exception. Sadly, and I mean that in the humanitarian (not pejorative) sense, due to the ‘normalisation of isolation’ housed in debt, depression and ATOS/DWP dignity deprivation etc. some of these people have little choice but to generate their human interaction online – otherwise they’d have none at all. And the easiest way to get maximum attention with minimal effort is through negativity; by embroiling themselves and luring others into fruitless arguments.

And which when we consider the cumulative effects of all these austerity apartheid factors, followed by a deliberately divisive – yet for ‘52%‘ – a ‘patriotic‘ Brexit (now exacerbated by further UK Government ‘incompetence’ and corruption throughout COVID leading to unremitting lockdowns) the individual and collective psychological and physiological isolation becomes more tangible; Its purpose housed in one of the six ‘push and pull’ emotional-behavioural drivers wearing down entire populations whose collective will was (and still is) always to be broken, with their ‘reality‘, their purpose, their very being – reshaped for war; ‘#OpFukuglaschu’ – #ToryAnalytica’s PlanA #BrexitCoup Reichstag Trigger’ (2018)

“It takes only six weeks to bring a country to the verge of crisis, after which, with a violent change of power, structure and economy, you have the period of ‘normalisation’ which may last indefinitely. ‘Normalisation’ is a cynical expression borrowed from Soviet propaganda”. Yuri Bezmenov, former KGB PsyOps Specialist (speaking here in 1984). See also ‘Bezmenov’s Babes‘ (2018)

🛑 Part Three

The ‘Dark Triad Model for Global Fascism’.

“Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in shapes of your own choosing”. Orwell, ‘1984’.

The ‘Dark Triad’ is a term recognised in psychology circles to describe someone who has all three Machiavellian, psychopathy and narcissistic traits.

Characters who possess the full-house can outwardly appear to be some of the ‘nicest’, most ‘confident’ characters you might think you ‘know’. But behind closed doors, they’re a seething pit of hatred, ignorance and insecurity.

I began developing the model in early 2017, having become compelled to monitor cyclical, repetitive and reinforced themes in UK (& beyond) mainstream media and across ‘social’ media from 12th September 2016.

In UK, under the ‘Dark Triad’ guise of Austerity, Brexit and against the backdrop of the UN’s ‘Istanbul Convention’, a seemingly unconnected, yet toxic concoction of orchestrated policies and propaganda messaging drives the drill-down division of society – mainly through identity politics to target all societal demographics – without exception.

By manipulating our predictable emotional-behavioural responses, the Dark Triad drives six principal ‘push and pull’ outcomes to Invalidate, Emasculate, Isolate and Agitate the entire population, to Segregate (signpost) minorities, yet simultaneously Amalgamate the population under one single quasi-religious identity: Britishness

…through a constant stream of Union Flag fronted and emotionalised Volksgemeinschaft messaging from your TV screens to your supermarket shelves, complete with nostalgia-laden triggers;

‘Supermarkets and malls seamlessly turned into Boomers, Gen X, Y and Z retail disco’s, the banks and stores combining to co-operate, one even retro-rebranded under the guise of moving back to back to its older better values but creepily delivered duelling banjos.’ (Page 151)

And which was (is) upon an ‘external enemy trigger’, to steep itself in an [im]moral self-righteous martyrdom and dual Schrodinger State indoctrinated ‘superiority-persecution complex’ leading into an age of globally staged militarised victimhood – aka fascism.

Given their additional Crown oath-allegiance, the military and the police already ardently occupy the Amalgamate driver prism of the ‘Dark Triad’ as they are individual and organisational products too, of their UK-population indoctrination through inter-generational ‘PatrioticProgramming: from Toddler to Teenager to Tabloidhood’ (2017).

And which through the normalisation of community-nation ‘Patriotic Poverty MBE Volksgemeinschaft’ (2020) propaganda to result in a simultaneous ‘Tragedy-Charity Gaslight Ceremony Cycle’ (2017):

Emotionalise, Irrationalise and Patriotise (the Volksgemeinschaft #CommunityNation) in preparation to Weaponise then Militarise (via the Amalgamate trigger) and Mobilise fascism (recycling the emotion for the next war) which converts pre/adolescent emotionally manipulated #PatrioticPoverty human capital…

“Children have never been very good at listening to their elders but they have never failed to imitate them”. James A. Baldwin

…into corporate ‘charity’ and cyclical war-profiteering cannon-fodder capital – as part of a wider, largely self-sustaining model which invests in and profits from the business of subjecting the human condition to all manner of miseries – pivotal to which is the destruction of the NHS. This is in order to efficiently manage entire populations by ‘legitimately’, gaslight-manipulating psychological and physiological hardship through legislation, policies and propaganda. I call this model ‘The #HumanMiseryGoRound’;
…which runs in tandem with another model principally targeting half the UK (US & beyond) population: boys and men. I call this one ‘The #PrisonMilitaryIndustrialComplex’;
And so for those who genuinely want Scotland’s – and Wales & England’s independence from the British elite estate – should try to understand that ALL of these factors are at play and that we are ALL constantly being gaslight manipulated by ‘news’ presented as a political and ideological ‘reality’ but which only exists on our screens in;

‘The vast, borderless global web of the Corpolitique, the operational face of which is the flatscreen universe; cinematic, TV and tablet found in every bottom- feeder dwelling. And of course, they pay for the privilege too whereas my very being is entitlement’. (Page 97)

🛑 Part Four: How Westminster & their UK-corporate propaganda has made the SNP ideologically ‘tetraplegic’ and why it needs The Alba Party to refocus on Scotland’s needs.

In Scotland specifically, we need to make the conscious effort to refuse to participate, facilitate and perpetuate any aspect of the adversarial SNP/Alba & Sturgeon/Salmond ‘rivalry’; particularly those narratives which specifically talk down The Alba Party or keep reinforcing they’re ‘splitting the vote’ when in fact the opposite is true, with substantially enhanced potential to pragmatically strengthen the overall pro-Indy vote.

Because even if the SNP leadership were permitted to formally, publicly state that the D’Hondt maths alone has the potential to deliver a pro-Independence SNP/Alba landslide – they couldn’t be seen to undermine their own SNP Regional/List candidates. But those who can and have an indisputable track record in pursuing independence have not only created and joined The Alba Party, they are publicly backing it for the second vote.

The bottom line is with an SNP1 vote and The Alba Party 2 in the populous Central Belt, West of Scotland, Mid & North East regions* – based on the 2016 votes – can deliver a pro-Independence landslide led by the First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, augmented by the man who in the modern era, has been absolutely instrumental in ensuring ‘The Dream Shall Never Die’. Freedom – to be a normal country in control of our own decisions and destiny – is within Scotland’s grasp.

(*In the sparsely populated Borders and also in my Highlands & Islands region, the 2016 D’Hondt second vote numbers work for The SNP. Personally however – for what it’s worth – I think any Scottish Parliament without Independent candidate Andy Wightman would be poorer place given his work on Land Reform, his courageous stance and principled resignation from The Green Party having refused to be taken-in by the gender-agenda distractions, and his professional, forensic, non-political, non-personal and courteous questioning of the First Minister during her eight hours of testimony).

The Alba Party can publicly promote the SNP for the first Constituency vote because the Alba Party are not fielding candidates for the Constituency vote: they’re not competing against any party for the first vote, hence #BothVotesYes.

However as previously alluded, as a party political and electoral procedural requirement the SNP are only permitted to promote the SNP. And they can hardly field Regional/List candidates to stand for election – but then promote another party for the second vote. It’s that simple.

So, the SNP leadership are duty-bound to promote #BothVotesSNP because they’re competing for both votes. However #BothVotesSNP is a fruitless, even futile exercise which, yes, has the potential to return a negligible, slim-margin majority of SNP MSP’s.

But this in itself is an incredible risk to achieving yet another mandate for an independence referendum, which has already been held hostage to a leadership utterly consumed by a wider, precedented and now global gender-agenda propaganda campaign designed to drive ‘divide and rule’ by identity politics, which political scientist Lawrence Britt simply described as ‘RAMPANT SEXISM’ and which the UN framed as ‘The Istanbul Convention’ (as per my Dark Triad model).

However we all came to know this precedented divide, rule, mass emasculating military recruitment strategy by its global-propaganda title in October 2017, as ‘The #MeToo Truth of Nr5 Rampant Sexism’ (2020).

“Invading Iran, taking it over and then coercing it into becoming a different sort of country would take a MILLION MEN”. Fmr Royal Navy First Sea Lord, Admiral West

In pursuing what they believed to be morally-righteous, through what are ultimately identity politics agendas mistakenly steeped in what they thought were popular (populist!) policies, the SNP leadership misjudged their core-majority support, in favour of an incredibly small usurping minority whose agenda was allowed to mission creep then trump the entire independence cause.

One tired but entirely accurate cliche is the SNP are trying to run before they can walk. Another less obvious analogy is that between Brexit, RAMPANT SEXISM propaganda – including the fabricated case against Alex Salmond – and not having the powers to fully secure our own borders against COVID – particularly airports – and being reliant on UK structures for our COVID statistics, ‘news’ and indeed global COVID intelligence, the SNP have in effect been made ideologically ‘tetraplegic’, even lamentably turning as Stockholm Syndrome hostages to their captors, to the very agencies like MI5 – whose role it is to destabilise and destroy the Scottish independence movement – for guidance on ‘online foreign meddling‘.

And at the risk of mixing too many metaphors, picture being strapped to but being tripped by Westminster in a three-legged ‘RAMPANT SEXISM’ race for the Scottish (Welsh & English) independence finish-line, but with both Brexit arms tied behind our back, locked in a vice-like COVID grip.

As such, subject to such UK structural influences, it’s the SNP leadership themselves who unwittingly pose a significant risk to their own raison d’etre – independence – and therefore to the future of Scotland.

The combination of COVID, of being ideologically distracted by RAMPANT SEXISM propaganda and held hostage by their required #BothVotesSNP position, the SNP (even if they did achieve a 3-4 seat SNP-specific increase) will not be able to deliver and demonstrate to the entire world – anything like the tsunami-scale of support for Scotland’s independence in Holyrood that your second vote can by returning a majority of Alba Party MSP’s.

Remember, independence is the only reason the SNP exist at all but it’s abundantly clear that a friendly face in the form of The Alba Party is needed. A timely, family intervention of sorts is required to compel them to refocus their efforts on the 701+ years battle for a free Scotland, not on ideologically divisive policies steeped in individual SNP MSP’s own personal, unacknowledged or unresolved ‘morally superior’ issues and insecurities being expressed through repression, sublimation &/or displacement – to ‘pursue’ with an overcompensating vigour, their own unaddressed experiences and human frailties through gender ‘reform’ and hate crime bills.

And which it’s the human condition itself which collectively, globally, has been emotionalised and weaponised against humanity and the planet by the worst sorts of Dark Triad characters who we believed could only ever exist in the darkest of ‘fiction’…
