And we’re OFF!
Remember a few weeks ago when Marr was accusing Nicola Sturgeon of overseeing a higher death than England, based on the only four weeks in the whole year when it was and ignoring the facts that it was much lower as he spoke and had been much lower over the whole year?
When it comes to comparisons with the rest of the world, England is replaced with the UK or Britain, to make the rest of us feel included perhaps and to hide England’s shame because Britain doesn’t have the highest death rate in Britain:
Regular readers will know this is the preferred approach across the MSM, to have, for example, Scottish drug deaths but UK Covid deaths.
Subtle but effective. Try asking your BBC-watching, Telegraph or Daily Mail reader about the Covid death rate in Scotland.
