These cybernats terrify me and this now includes SNP Politicians, as if we didn't know.

To quote their Party Leader: "Shame on them!!"

How do you know they were "cybernats"?

A lot of this woman's colleagues were outraged that she was caught out lying and bringing their profession into into disrepute.

Did your political periodical run a story on Nicola Sturgeon at the weekend when the police announced they would be increasing her security including replacing her government driver with a police officer after an increase in death threats to her and not just from CyberBritnats either?

No......Well blow me sideways again.

Now your cybernats really terrify me. yes.gif

Well according to Ruth and your lot on here they are on the rise and will be winning lots more seats at the Westminster election.

We'll know on the 9th June. unsure.gif

How was she caught out lying? Have public servants (bar politicians) not had a fixed 1% wage increase for several years?

Why are SNP politicians sharing tweets about members of the public, we are well with our rights to hold public officials to account on TV or anywhere else. For them to join in a cyber lynching by sharing details to their followers is bloody disgusting and they should remember their place ..We are their bosses, not the other way around...Thats directed to all of them so put yer pitchforks down

I was entitled to a jibe, Jagz, as it is current news.

It is mind wacko.gif wacko.gif wacko.gif boggling why so many at the TOP of the SNP allowed themselves to be caught out sharing fake news about that NHS worker. It is a shocking insight into the dark side of the SNP social media machine.

By all means expose the cyber bullying by other Parties. But at least condemn it when it arises (if you can bring yourself to criticise one of your own).

I have remained on here over the years because there are no cybernuts, just honest guys and gals with something to say. biggrin.gif

It wasn't the nurse whose behaviour forced her to later tweet a grovelling public apology.

The Twitter replies shed further darkness on the divisions such Politics brings to public debate.

Indeed! We are still waiting for the nurse's apology, grovelling or not.

The pay she says she's on does not tally with the amount of years she claims to have been a nurse for starters.

Yes you are correct, public servants have been getting 1% pay rises from the SG, unlike their counterparts in England who have been getting nothing.

Current fake news.

I thought you would have been annoyed that a debate about the Westminster election was stage managed to be anything but a debate about the Westminster election.

Perhaps you were pleased that Ruth didn't have to answer any awkward questions. yes.gif

It doesn't even matter now that the Party has belatedly distanced itself from such viewpoints guys, Politics takes a back seat given events in Manchester.

I take it you are aware of the pay structure of a nurse, yes they get yearly increments that do get capped, yes a band 7 earns a good wage (though a new band 7 gets less than a higher grade band 6) but thats if they are full time. Her band and length of service are irrelevant if she only works part time. Thats not to say I know her, her wage or her hours, but then neither do you. She may be on a wack, travel to New york, married to a tory councilor, own a hose and send her child to a private school, or she may not, I dont know, What I do know is that her message has been lost in all this and the cyberlynching of a nurse who demands answers to questions a lot of nurses want to hear. She was right on some of her points and even though a starting salary of £22k is a lot to some, some nurses will struggle to live and work the odd shifts that the job requires. A car is a necessity, unless you live close by expect to be out of the house 14 hours using public transport only to do it all the next day. Some nurses rely on the bank to get by, some only have the bank so dont even get regular hours.

Now it looks like a lot of this fury is because she put Wee Nic on the spot. I see cries of this isn't about devolved issues, well if there's one party who cant greet about mixing up reserved/devolved it's the SNP.
Now if it was Ruthie she put on the spot would the uproar be as bad?
