The Intellectual Inconsistency Of Scottish Nationalists

In one sense, I'm quite glad that David Kerr is no longer on BBC Scotland - his presenting style was very irritating, and never failed to remind me of the character of Bulldog in 'Frasier' - but one really has to ask, indeed is absolutely entitled to ask, whether or not it's inconsistent of a person who's obviously deeply committed to Scottish nationalism to draw pay from the British Broadcasting Corporation.
And Mr. Kerr continued in what is to all intents and purposes a form of British public service after standing as a candidate for the SNP in 2007. If this is allowed, it shouldn't be.

Sigh....

Labours media has disintegrated and the media in Scotland is beginning to feel the same new self confidence permeating throughout the rest of the country.

Get used to it.

That process would be made easier if I knew what country you were describing. It's certainly not the Scotland I see around me.

Martin, Nationalists have had to put up the the Unionist Labour Led laptop loyal for decades. Still do in certain quarters. Mostly infact.

The self confidence I refer to is the one that manifests itself in the nation voting for a Nationalist party in successive elections as Scotland has recently done.

CT,

I'm not so sure about your psephology. It might just have been more to do with a general sense of tiredness and a desire to throw the bums out.
