There was outrage today as NASA posted a possibly doctored photo of Scotland from space.
Traditional journalistic wisdom would suggest that Scotland was too wee to appear that big and that beautiful.
Some were quick to complain that it showed a lack of balance in that three pictures of an enlarged England had not been posted first.
Several pro-union commentators were also quick to point out that this showed NASA’s well-known Scottish nationalist bias, and said that these scientists, who do amazing feats of scientific precision, needed to listen to some right-wingers with humanities degrees if they wanted to have any idea of what was going on.
The BBC said the dimensions of Scotland in the photo did not correspond with BBC guidelines, and that even if they had, they were unhappy about the whole thing anyway as it didn’t correspond with the Empire’s world view.
The Express said that they didn’t really know or care what was going on, but whatever it was, it was definitely a blow for Sturgeon.
Scottish labour were available for comment, but no one wanted to listen.
