According to Reporting Scotland this morning, the Great Tapestry of Scotland depicts 12 THOUSAND years of history.
Kinda makes you feel proud, doesn’t it from Queen Scota driving back the ice with magic, 12 000 years through three King Ecks just one thousand years ago to the SNP victories in the 21st Century by King Eck IV?
Until I heard that, I thought that Scotland and England were both closer to around just the one thousand years old.
What age are the Reporting Scotland team? Did they do history at school? Arithmetic? Did they mishear ‘prehistory?’
The longer website version makes no such claim of great antiquity for Scotland.
The relentless bias, with GERS about to star for the next few days, is bad enough, but they’re thick too.
