Reporting Scotland’s cold air ‘going nowhere’ unlike the rest of the UK?

Is even the weather forecast on Reporting Scotland infected with that anxiety-inducing negativity that pervades the rest of their coverage?

Maybe I’m over-sensitive to comparisons here, but I had earlier looked at the Met Office site to see if things were going to return to normal in the next few days. They are. By the weekend, we’ll be back up at around 6C in much of Scotland. Even Braemar could hit 4C.

Reporting Scotland’s nasal rather than Japanese (Kodai is a male first name), weather-person, above informed us the cold air was ‘going nowhere’ and stopped the forecast at tonight, ‘bitterly cold.’

Why no forecast for the next few days to reassure us?

BBC UK did:

By Saturday or Sunday, something warmer this way comes.

I’ve often argued, to widespread disagreement, that much of BBC Scotland’s bias results from a largely unconscious set of cultural tendencies to report in a way that benefits the Union, other than in the work of fully-conscious propagandists such as Campbell, Cook or Smith.

Is even the weather reporting the same?

  1. Consistent and persistent negativity about Scotland eventually has a negative effect on people’s mental state. Negativity feeds into how people think and the long-term result is the acceptance of negativity in any form.

    1. Like Strictly Come Dancing perhaps? After all they only gave 23 seconds to reporting that some of the nurses’ unions in Scotland had accepted the SG’s pay offer

  2. Yes the continual drip drip of negativity just to enforce the point that living in Scotland is hell on earth under the SNP and the depression is not going to lift until Labour pick up in the polls.

  5. Yes I didn’t know it had been snowing in England until I saw it on independent PBS US news, and people were stuck in their cars down south, looked chaotic! Must be Nicola Sturgeon’s fault, no calls for any of the English MP’s to resign?
    The met office in their slightly more detailed forecast don’t mention Scotland, they say, ‘northern UK ‘. Scotland is being cancelled by the British nationalists state, or so they hope.

    1. Of course, when we return to normality as an independent nation. We will have completely vanished from the rUK psyche. Take a close look at any rUK weather report. there is a big lump of land to the west of Wales, which is attached to Northern Ireland, but never has any weather and is never mentioned by name.
      Same thing when you look to the south, to the south of engerland there is another land mass beyond the channel Islands. which curves up so close that you can look out to sea and from some areas you can see it with the baked eye. There is actually a tunnel which goes from engerland directly to it. But it too never has any weather and is never mentioned by name. Not even for all the time we were part of Europe.
      The same fate awaits us when we return to independence.
      Perhaps we should reconsider this independence thing………
      NAA…… away an bile your heed………bring it on.
