The Scottish Six – Time we told London we’ve had enough
According to The Sunday Herald, BBC chiefs in London have scrapped the idea of a Scottish Six. If true it’s a repeat of the slap in the face administered to Scotland in 1998 just after devolution.
Then we had genuine reporters and presenters who believed in themselves and their nation. Eight presenters of BBC Scotland current affairs programmes signed a letter in support of a Scottish Six. Can you imagine the current lot doing that?
There is a suggestion that the ‘leak’ to The Sunday Herald is in fact an attempt to manage expectations rather than a complete abandonment of the resurrected proposal. If true, then we’re going to get a half-arsed sop. Jackie Bird will introduce the international item then the usual network reporter will present his or her summary. They’ll just reshuffle the same news.
