Westminister's Decades Long Campaign to defeat Nationalism

The Tory and Labour Governments of Westminister have waged a decades long struggle to defeat nationalism: Scottish nationalism.

BBC Alba covers the many tricks, strategems and mistruths employed by Westminister to keep the union intact.

Only our Scottish comrades could provide comment on this but I wonder have the english language BBC ever ran such a documentary - a documentary on how the UK govt. lied to the Scots.

I think of RTE and the contrasting example of TG4 which ran that fantastic series on prison breaks, including the Great Escape. RTE could never, would never (in its current form) run such a broadcast.

Its a 6 part series but worth a look.

  1. Great stuff. I agree with your point regarding TG4. they have produced great programmes which simply would not be shown on the main english speaking channels.
