I couldn’t believe what ITV have done tonight, it may seem trivial to those outside Scotland, but it goes to show how the country is treated when it comes to National versus English television.
It seems that while England are served their national team playing football, Scotland can’t see theirs, nor can they see the programme that’s usually on at the same time.
Irn Bru have done it again with another absolutely cracking television advert here in Scotland – possibly in the UK as well, I don’t know where it’s playing.

Scotland is fighting to become a very green country. The Scottish Executive is investing £35 million over three years in renewable sources of energy, and there are schemes for rubbish recycling, reduction of emissions, increase of public transport, and so on.
