No Christmas cheer from ‘exceptional’ Reporting Scotland

BBC UK had some news for us. Covid infection levels are rising everywhere except in Scotland, where they are falling. Here are the comparative figures:

The BBC Scotland website avoided the comparative data but has this fact for you:

Reporting Scotland were certainly not inclined to any comparative news that you might think meant Sturgeon was any use, and kept it minimal with this:

Ooooh! Sounds a lot doesn’t it?

None were going to show you this:

What, the infection rate in the last 24 hours was TWICE as high in Northern Ireland, nearly THREE times as high in England and Wales.

Nah, not newsworthy?

  1. Oh no, terrible news for the BBC. Smith’s face would crack if she smiled about anything Scotland related. How sad, to work against your own country, in an attempt to keep the cringe going, can’t b good for the soul.

  2. CAMPAIGN NEEDED TO CAVASS FRANCHISE ORGANISATION
    TO CLOSE DOWN BBC SCOTLAND

    AS THEY ARE CERTAINLY NOT ABIDING BY THE BROADCASTING CHARTER
    THAT THEIR LONDON HEAD OFFICE SIGNED INTO LAW

  3. Having now read the website article John, the article is much more insidious, a mishmash of ONS information and assertions over the “new strain”, suspiciously like an article for England tweaked to incorporate Scottish references but minimal actual information.
    Your general observation remains correct – BBC Scotland continue to carefully tailor news for Scots to avoid any positive inference to SG, SNHS, or recognition of the success of countless others who have worked tirelessly to keep Scots safe from Covid – Scotland’s permanent Grinch.

  4. Thanks for yet another insight into the BBC Scotland mindset, we are being ‘played’ like a violin by these insidious establishment lackies.
    Thank god for sites like yours, John, just a pity it’s not possible to have higher public awareness of it.
    Happy Xmas, by the way!

  5. Of course ABC won’t report good news on Scotland however ONS modelling is not real data – their last estimate had Scotland nearly equal to England when case data showed Scotland much lower.
    Cases and Positivity are at best flat lining in Scotland at present – not going down. Don’t trust ONS.

  8. Merry Christmas everyone. And special thanks to you Professor, for the invaluable information you provide every day. It makes a huge difference to my morale, and knowledge, when I get the facts, and can impart them when canvassing, hopefully next year.
