“ The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie… but the myth, …the cliches of our forebears… the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought…

President John F. Kennedy, 1962. Just watched Diomhair, a BBC Alba documentary on how successive UK Government’s have lied and hid the truth in order to undermine the argument for Scottish independence. To this day, unionists play on fear, myths and cliches to fight independence: this quote from JFK has never been more prescient.
