Don’t mention the £600,000, that is gone and is still, as far as I am aware, the subject of a continuing police investigation. The above was sent to me by a reader who was questioning the use of the Yes logo for a fundraising appeal where despite the prominent use of the ”Independence Campaign” and Yes branding it is only in the later small print where it is revealed all monies are in fact going to a political party…the SNP.
To be fair there is no mention of the funds being ”ring fenced” for an Independence Referendum but I still think eyebrows will be raised at the prominent use of the YES logo, and the complete absence of the SNP logo on the promotion materials despite that is where every penny being donated is going.
I would have thought the SNP could have been more transparent and wanted to ensure there was no room for confusion, instead the weakness of running a further fundraising appeal minus the SNP logo and centred on the Yes logo suggests they are thinking YES logos might be considerably more popular and effective than the SNP one while the mystery and full story of the “missing” £600k has yet to be fully told.
I wonder what the non SNP Yes community will make of this. Please comment and let me know.
I am, as always
YOURS FOR SCOTLAND
BEAT THE CENSOR
Sadly some websites that claim to be pro Indy have turned out to be only Pro SNP sites and have sought to ban any websites that dare to question SNP Policy or tactics. They seek to avoid the public being aware that alternatives to waiting for Westminster to “grant” Scotland a Section 30 to hold a referendum exist. Issues like the flawed franchise, the Claim of Right route, the work of the SSRG and Salvo fill them with dread. As this blog promotes all routes, including alternatives I am banned from these sites and am therefore very grateful to my readers, who knowing about these efforts to ban and suppress go out of their way to subscribe and to share my articles far and wide. It is a good thing that attempts to restrict free speech and censor are defeated in this way.
