Reporting Scotland’s latest early morning nightmare story propagandizes people with special needs and autism
At 06:29 am, headlined and repeated throughout the morning, we heard:
‘There are still 79 [Scottish] people with special needs and autism in care in England and Wales.’
I don’t mean to diminish the suffering involved for these 79. I just want to understand how big a problem this is at a national level. Comparable figures for England & Wales don’t seem to be available. Is that because BBC Salford and BBC Wales don’t have an awesome ‘disclosure team’ burrowing away under the foundations of trust in government? Makes you feel your licence fee is worth it. Using your own money to make you feel anxious in the morning. Also, the longer website piece is geography-free, so we can’t see how many are, for example, placed just across the border in a neighbouring region.
