You should hear some folk in Scotland and their attitude to BBC, even BBC Scotland (allegedly). BBC is first and foremost about Britain - primarily England and everyone else a very distant second. Some Scots even refer to the way that Scotland is depicted on the BBC weather map showing Scotland as being much smaller than it actually is in relation to England/Wales.

Tommy Gorman for RTE says Sinn Fein ran a campaign with military precision. Now he's dragging up Gerry Adams in his leadership. And trying to rake up other anti-SF controversy.

Tommy just can't help himself
