BBC Scotland lie and distort in order to blemish Scotland with supposed violent crime crisis

crimeWe recently watched as BBC Scotland attempted to scare its audience by trying to spread England’s knife crime crisis to Scotland as part of their wider campaign to question the notion that Scotland is becoming a bit different from England, even, dare I say, a better place. See this:

BBC News tries to spread knife crime crisis into Scotland to tell us: ‘You’re no different. Don’t get any ideas!’

Today, they had another go and, this morning at 06:00 am but repeated five or six more times, before 09:00 am, BBC Salford opened with:

‘Serious organised crime like gun smuggling, modern slavery and sexual exploitation are the greatest threats to national security.’

and reported that there are more than 4 500 gangs involved. The figures from the National Crime Agency (NCA) are presumably UK-wide figures.

Clearly not to be left out, BBC Scotland, at 06:26 and repeated five or six more times before 09:00 am, headlined:

‘Feuds and rivalries between organised crime gangs in the Central Belt pose an increasing threat to the public.’
