  1. Scottish Hebrides? Not British? Or how about just ‘The Hebrides’? Now, if it had been a part of England would you have called it ‘British’? Sheesh. The racist White Celtic myth, the Barnett Formula (reviled by its creator, the late Lord Joel Barnett) and asymmetric devolution have a lot to answer for. For a service supposedly based in the Midlands of England, the largest and most ethnically diverse UK country, you spend a lot of time pandering to the elite five million up north, don’t you? Every time I visit this site you’re going on about Scotland – and dropping the British tag.

    1. You’ll have to pick Channel 4 up on that one, they gave out the programme information including ‘Scottish Hebrides’. Although if we mentioned Snowdonia we’d say it was part of the Welsh mountain region, because it is.

      Or Giants Causeway in Northern Ireland, we wouldn’t say it was anything else. We’re certainly not Pro-Scottish or Anti-Scottish, all are treated equally hopefully.
