By G.A.Ponsonby

Famous for the worst political prediction in history when he said that Devolution would kill Scottish Nationalism “stone dead”, George Robertson is again having a go at the nats.

Lord George has been railing against the 'online menace' known as the Cybernat and accusing them of all sorts of online skulduggery.

Eschewing the old childhood ‘sticks and stones’ advice, Lord George has had enough of being confronted by those online polemicists who have, it seems, less respect for him than he thinks he deserves.

In an article in the Scottish Review, entitled 'Vermin and trash': abused at the hands of the CyberNats’ – the Labour Peer calls on the SNP, or the ‘new establishment’ as he describes them, to chastise the offenders.

The article begins by listing a series of dictators, terrorist events, wars, war criminals and totalitarian regimes - merging the mixture of unsavoury characters and events seamlessly with an SNP conference and SNP followers.

The Balkans, 9/11, Macedonia, Russia, Saddam Hussein, Milosovic, Nazis, Bosnia and Kosovo all feature as Robertson conflates each of them with Scottish Nationalism.

An introductory three paragraph rant is followed by a sentence that one has to read, not twice but thrice to make sure you haven’t misread:

"But I truly believed that Scotland had grown out of that nonsense."

Yes indeed, Lord George is suggesting that Scotland is currently in the midst of a totalitarian regime hell bent on using violence in order to rid Scotland of its political opponents.

But what evidence does he present to back up his claims?  None other than the Scotsman online forums.

Yep, that shark infested sea of despair frequented by loons and screamers from both sides of the constitutional divide and none.

George, it seems, was the author of a recent article that was not as well received as he had hoped and, savaged by the political equivalent of the theatre critic, he has decided to hit back.

The name calling and abuse on the Scotsman threads is well known, as is the fact that both sides indulge in it, few people, if anyone at all, take the comments seriously.

Scotsman online comments serve only as ‘evidence’ to be cited by Unionists (like George) in order to suggest that only ‘nutty nats’ indulge in such behaviour.  The lie is well worn and easily disproved if one takes the time to read the Scotsman, Daily Mail and Telegraph comments.

Robertson though, then goes on to completely undermine his own spurious argument by launching his own verbal tirade against these online hecklers calling them “a bunch of demented, screwed-up untypical bigots”.

The language is eerily similar to that made by the late David Cairns, who when Labour MP for Inverclyde described Scottish National Party supporters as “anti-English swivel eyed bigots”.

Perhaps the real cause of Lord George’s outburst isn’t the fact that he has been called a few unpleasant names by a handful of online critics.  Could it be that Lord George has just realised that a Yes vote in the independence ballot will see him reverting back to plain old George.

Here’s a prediction for Lord Robertson – Independence will kill your House of Lords taxpayer funded gravy train stone dead.

Love it Mr Ponsonby ! The last "prediction" is a killer. lol

I admit to being one of his hated CyberNats and took great care to build a respectful comment that would, if read by the "great" man, at least give him pause for thought.

Do I think that he and his ilk have a conscience? Yes I do, however, they are all playing the game of self presevation as you quite rightly point out and that seems to throw a wet blanket on matters of concience as far as they are concerned.

It would take a truly Great Man to throw off the ermine and walk out of the house of lords in protest over the treatment of his people.

Do I see it happening? Naw. Nuff said.

O/t what exactly will the situation be when we're independent? I doubt if this George or Foulkesy will voluntarily revert to Mr Robertson or Mr Foulkes so do we just refer to them as "Mr" or do we rub some salt in by using "The former Lord G.."?

Methinks Lord George needs to get out more!

I was glad to see the back of his facial extremities when he went away to be Sec Gen of Nato or something.

Has he got a reason for maintaining the Union? Thought not!

"Lord" George, a politician who wasn't considered sharp enough to draw up the Devolution settlement rose without trace to become the Yes Man for the US as Secretary General of Nato, and will manage fine. He has over £1million per annum in directorships.

# J Wil 2012-02-16 00:57
George just does not like hearing the truth.

It's what should happen to the great and the good from time to time. The sh** should be knocked out of them. Most of them are a just a bunch of manipulative, jumped-up shysters. Why should we have any respect for them?
 
 
# call me dave 2012-02-16 01:22
The general point you make has merit.

Politicians and the like should not be allowed to forget their origins and rubbing shoulders with the 'common 5/8ths' (as my old uncle from Burntisland shipyard days) used to say is a good thing.

For you younger ones that's 0.625 as a decimal fraction.

As for putting them in the stocks in the village square for the hell of it once in a while may be stretching the point too far, but I could be persuaded!
 
 
# oldnat 2012-02-16 01:34
"For you younger ones that's 0.625 as a decimal fraction."

Far more attuned to this site than a vulgar fraction!

However, for real vulgarity, the practices of Whitehall's mandarins in feathering the nests of their own takes some beating!

And that lot think we are too stupid to govern ourselves? The English seem to have suffered from a lot of corruption for a lot of years.

Too angry and tired to comment BUT JWil above is maybe correct.

As Tony Hancock would say oft times "Well swipe me!"
Thanks for that I often wondered where that originated.

here's another one that I can do with some info on (cant even spell it)

Scots word 'doufy' or perhaps 'doughy' meaning daft ?

Thanks.
 
 
# Robabody 2012-02-16 21:55
Hi CMD - the word douf is understood as to grow dull or slumber. Douff on the other hand is translated as a heavy blow.
Meantime doughty (dought) is strength.

I've always seen doughty used as in the expression or context of "he/she is a doughty fechter".

The Scots English Dictonary by Lomond books provided the info.

# BillDunblane 2012-02-16 02:39
Strangely enough, Ol' George's recent article in the Hootsman, had the first 42 comments removed. Including one fool who had supported his argument. Perhaps fear of what he did to 'another paper' a while back instigated the censorship by the Hootsman?
 
 
# Diabloandco 2012-02-16 07:37
Correct me if I am wrong but is this Gerge Robertson the same one that helped put a

It always raises questions when someone does that.
A bit like Dr Kelly and the circumstances of his demise.
 
 
# Wave Machine 2012-02-16 08:15
I'm constantly surprised that the use of the internet by Nationalists hasn't popped up more often as a disussion point and that there hasn't been sight of an anti-cybernat-missile in the Unionist box of tricks.

I had expected a pop at Cybernatery from within the Leveson inquiry.

There does seem to be an increasing acceptance that major constitutional change is in the air. This will cause major trauma to the numerous vested interests within the current UK Establishment. Worried? They must be running to the loo.

It's the fact that they (the Unionist Establishment) can't control the activities of Cybernats that brings most fear. And it is fear. The fact of unbridled free speech loose in Scotland is a scary thought for some powerful people.

The internet and it's use as a tool for free speech is the game changer for the future of Scotland. I'm not usually a scaremonger but people like Robertson seeing the sun set on his ermine robes, his influence, his Titles, probably his source of income; all will start putting pressure on the Westminster Government to do something about it. Far fetched?
When the very fabric of the Establishment is being torn apart, perhaps not so very far fetched.
 
 
# Macart 2012-02-16 08:22
I would suspect Wave Machine its because its too easy for we cybernats to produce an even greater body of evidence supporting the bile that is launched in our direction. If they open that can of worms I would be very confident of producing way more examples of unionist abuse than they could of the nationalist variety.
 
 
# Mad Jock McMad 2012-02-16 09:51
Aye Macart - a quick look down Telegraph columns by Cochrane and any Scottish article in the Daily Mule will demonstrate the extreme racism towards Scotland that is in built into the English political machine.

Then again, if I was about to loose turnover of in excess of £145 billion a year, 9.4% of my profit margin and the mortgage behind my £1 trillion pound sovereign debt I think I would be getting a bit testy... especially if there was a fair chance that the spin off negotiations were possibly not going to show any profit, in fact I could end up paying to let them go.

That is what the English establishment and its 'Toom Tabard' Scots are waking up to.
 
 
# Macart 2012-02-16 14:42
Spot on Mad Jock. I've spent the past couple of weeks doing missionary work posting on Guardian, Telegraph and Independent, (couldn't do the Mail or Express, I have to sleep at night with the light on). Some of the posts you couldn't repeat in front of a docker. Also the lack of even the simplest knowledge or facts about Scotland, Scottish politics or Scots in general is simply staggering.
 
 
# KingEckI 2012-02-16 09:53
I said the same thing to my dad just last month. If this referendum delivers a Yes vote it will be, in large part, due to the internet. The media are no help and peddle the misinformation from the unionist establishment. The availability of the truth on the net will be the deciding factor.
 
 
# megsmaw 2012-02-16 16:08
Exactly KingEck. You just have to look at the effect the internet has had on North Africa & the Middle East in the past year. People can find out the truth and pass it along much quicker than before.

He is just one of the many who are going to fight tooth and nail to prevent their own redundancy. It's got nothing to do with Scotland and her people.
They have the MSM and the BBC, and will use every dirty trick in the book and more. I don't think that honest debate and reason will mean anything to them. It will be win at all costs.
 
 
# alicmurray 2012-02-16 09:45
There is a very compassionate article in today's Telegraph by Peter Oborne regarding the treatment of Greece by the European elites, he wants Britain to come to their defense. The reason I am mentioning this in this post is because of this quote from his article "one of the basic truths of politics is that the Left is far more oblivious to human suffering than the Right. The Left always speaks the language of compassion but rarely means it. It favours ends over means" . The Left here made me think of Scottish Labour who purporting to be left wing thinks it is acceptable for Scotland to be crushed by right wing fanatics to stay in a morally corrupt but from their point of view profitable union. Let's stand up for the Greeks who although have not paid taxes should not suffer further harsh penalties from corrupt, thieving, incompetent European elites like Robertson.
 
 
# thomsor 2012-02-16 09:46
So George does not like the Cybernats. He should visit twitter now and again to see the Britnat bile out there. From a butchers apron fan posting today F--- SNP, F--- Adolf Salmomd Etc. Disgusting rhetoric that I have never come across from a Cybernat.
 
 
# Scaravilious 2012-02-16 09:51
There will never be to much attention brought to sites like this by the Unionists. They want the people of Scotland to continue watching the BBC which they can control so we only hear the stories they want us to hear. By bringing attention to sites like this they risk letting the people of Scotland know the truth.
 
 
# RevStu 2012-02-16 10:10
It's astonishing that the Unionists will still try to get away with this line of attack in the light of this sort of thing:

# farrochie 2012-02-16 10:26
Personal abuse, ad hominem attacks and name calling will achieve little and is rarely amusing.

You could see the Scotsman comments go gradually then rapidly downhill, with multiple-named trolls gein it their best, culminating in slagging matches between the few who had the time to indulge. The Herald managed to put a stop to trolling early on with a more severe registration process.

I'm hoping the NNS (and Labourhame!) manage to avoid the trolls without using too much censorship.

Independence is not about a leader or a party, but at present the only way we can achieve Independence is via a political system of leaders and parties, and this limits our choice. So we Independence-minded Scots must make sure that our chosen party of Independence does not get distracted from the substance of the argument. And I hope that we can use (mostly) measured language on these pages, and on other comments pages.

The facts should speak for themselves.

Oh dear, poor old George. It's not that long ago he was being invited to open all those lovely PFI buildings in his constituency of Hamilton, his old mucker Tony was patting him on the back and he was making his way up that beanstalk to collect his golden handshakes.

Now with a cloud of Cybernats trying to pull the ermine of his back, he's swatting away like a man possessed! How times have changed.
If only time could be turned back to the glory days of super slow dial-up and a population ignorant of the facts, all would be well again.

Any chance, post independence, we could give the clever cookies that came up with 'tinternet' the freedom of Edinburgh or such like for services to truth, honesty and democracy?

I read the article and can only summarise that the majority of so called 'cybernat' comments were a tad understated. I'm sure the next time he writes such a whining piece of drivel, we 'vermin and trash' can come up with suggestions such as...sell the 'ermine/ferret' you'll need the cash to support yourself post 2014. Good riddance to him.
 
 
# Electric Hermit 2012-02-16 11:34
As an active online campaigner for Scotland's secession from the union I too can't help but be struck by the sheer hypocrisy of Robertson's anti-nationalist tirade. Nor can I do ther than see in it an echo of Iain Gray's unbecoming petulant rant when as he stepped down as leader of the British Labour & Unionist Party at Holyrood to take up his new postion in the dustbin of Scottish political history.



The truth is not something that either Gray or Robertson are equipped to recognise. But the truth evident to anyone who takes an interest in such things is that for every "Cybernat" there are ten "Cyberbrits" out there. And while the "Cybernats" grow less frenetic as confidence in Scotland's future as an independent nation grows so the "Cyberbrits" grow more rabid and bilious as their beloved British state diminishes.

# ScottishNotBritish75 2012-02-16 12:59
Proud to be a Cybernat. If the MSM and BBC Scotchland were not unionist mouthpieces, then there would probably be less cybernats. As the media is all unionist led scaremongering mouthpieces, then the internet and social media is the only way to get the TRUTH out there. They may control the papers and the box, but they cannot control the free spirit and free information of the internet. [Sentence deleted - NNS Mod Team]

I still have 5 cybernat/cybernats domain names that I can reroute to anyone's blog should anyone want to help in the quest to claim the term and turn it from the intended negative to a positive. Cybernats.com already ranks highly in Google for both search terms and provides strong backlinks to NNS as a result. It'd be great if we could dominate the search engines for these words as they become more widely used.
 
 
# John Souter 2012-02-16 14:20
This man is the personification of the contempt the establishment has for the democratic process and for the people who give it purpose.

Does it not occur to him that the cyber-nats he so despises were in many instances the same people who believed in the integrity of the Labour values that he espoused. That brought him to office, and responsibility and awarded him rewards which subsequently proved not to be matched by results.

By his reaction he not only underlines his own contempt for the political position he adopted, he gives irrevocable proof to the fact he is a hypocritical snob of the first order and hasn't a democratic gene in his DNA.

As a jobsworth within the enclaves of Westminster he was a comfortable and unchallenging troll. But, when his comfort zone is challenged by a democratic sea change, he has neither the track record to use as a buttress nor the competence to defend his past results and present position other than spitting his dummy out against those who were failed by his contempt.

On one thing he is right - he should take it personally - but he should also recognise the contempt is spread around most of his 'clubby' colleagues.

# ettrick49 2012-02-16 14:23
Many good points about Robertson but unfortunately the argument that there is just as much bile coming from unionists/BritNats is not going to help us in the referendum campaign. It is clear that a number of Labour politicians have decided that attacking "cybernats" is a good way to paint the SNP in a negative light. The SNP needs to take the moral high ground and make clear that it opposes malicious and abusive behaviour by supporters of all parties on the internet as elsewhere.
 
 
# J Wil 2012-02-16 16:53
But the attack on the cybernats has already taken place. It is ongoing and the unionist media is not going to put that back in the box. It will be restated again and again whether it is true or not. We have seen plenty of evidence for the way they work already.

So what is the point of behaving the way you suggest? The problem for the unionists is that there is a great deal of truth said on these pages, bebunking the lies that the unionists are putting about. The unionists do not play fair. It is what they do.

The cybernats have been here since the SNP took office and I don't see that the SNP have been disadvantaged in any way. It's more like the opposite is the case.

Why is that the independence supporters are singled out as "cybernats"? Do other political camps not have access to the internet or know how to comment on news sites or blogs?

Sounds like bogeymen under the bed level of reasoning. Especially with the outright insults and slanderous tarring with a wide brush is added to it.

Constantly claiming that the SNP are anti-English is wearing thin when they have English born supporters, members, MSPs, etc.

I guess we are still in the stage of the debate where you simply say something again LOUDER and more often if someone disagrees or proves it wrong the first time.

George Robertson is a very clever man. Unfortunately, like many in a similar position, his judgement is clouded by his establishment and party alleigencies. The scenario that was never meant to happen has come to pass. The Westminster-centric world he exists in has lost control of events surrounding constitutional matters in Scotland, hence, he is scared and angry as the edifice upon which he has built his career and reputation is feeling rather shoogley. So, like many, feeling events are out of control and no idea what to do about it, he is lashing out.

He is not the first, and will not be the last.

Viva los cybernats!

Thank you Tony Blair. Why ? I believe Tony's refusal to give Scotland a Six O'Clock news program started the cybernat army, because no news was comming out from the BBc ITV outlets the Scot's went in search of news and turned to the only place where it was freely available the Internet.For this Tony Blair we are gratefull, possibly one of Tony's biggest mistakes.

I will always remember an incident with oor Geo. Lorraine Davidson had an attack on Alex Salmond saying she would never vote for him because of a photo of him wearing a tartan top hat going to a Scotland game. The same week we had Geo, in a photo, giving a cruise missile a big cuddle. That missile could have killed innocents when fired. Aye George, your time is nearly up....

I can imagine him cursing after losing the referendum:
"I'd have got away with it if it hadn't been for those pesky meddling Cybernats!"
