In the interests of full disclosure, and this may shock you, I support Scottish Independence.
Over the years I have repeatedly called on the media to be fairer on that issue. More specifically, I would prefer if they didn’t spread the wild stories and accusations of unionists without analysing them at all, whilst at the same time treating the comments and research of independence supporters to the most withering scrutiny and exaggerating possible difficulties (Corbynistas – are you beginning to understand what we went through?).
Through all of this however, I never once called on the media to be more “patriotic”. Such a thing from an independence supporter would undoubtedly provoke a shitstorm.
Tory ministers however can do it no problem…
