Universality of Cheese

As the Brie hits the ventilation system I must confess my own very minor involvement in the whole debacle.

Back in the day when the SNP were more concerned with believing in the cause rather than absolute unquestioning devotion to the latest Blackberry instruction of the day, I was contacted by Mike Russell to get involved in a pro-SNP blogging ring.

I was to be part of the 'group' as an 'influential' (sic) blogger and I was to be contacted again as part of the blogging network he was setting up.

Perhaps I was not pliant enough, but I never heard from Mike again.

All of which explains why I blog in my own name and not under a nom de guerre plume.

I wonder if this growing crisis will end Mike Russell's career?

So was this before or after your disagreement with the local party?

I don't know if there is proof in what you have said, but I wondered whether you are alleging that you were asked to participate in something underhand or "black ops' Angus?

The reason being that the Scotsman is using your story, with very little journalistic investigation or integrity, with the title 'black ops' in the headline.

Does this meet with your approval or is it a distortion by the Scotsman (who I presume approached you) of what happened as they appear to have a campaign against either blogs themselves or Mike Russell, or both.

Thanks in anticipation

Well done Angus for showing what a career politician Biffo is. He will do anything to try and get to the top. Did he not send out a press release when he returned to the Scottish Parliament denouncing his Freemasonry. Well we in the Uists will never forget how he took all he could from the then HIDB with his Cinema Sgeire and buggered off.

I didn't speak to the Scotsman, and any similarity between what I blogged and what they (and others) reported is entirely coincidental.

I had very good reasons for beleiving that this aspect was going to come out in the open shortly, and I'd rather be transparent about it than appear to be on the defensive when quizzed by a journalist.
