‘The Scottish Government provides MORE financial support to victims than other parts of the UK.’
On BBC Radio Good Morning Scotland at 7am – child abuse, Ruth Davidson and whisky. Surely the worst treatment scandal in NHS history affecting many Scots too, is newsworthy.

Imagine if they had this to report:
‘The Scottish Government provides LESS financial support to victims than other parts of the UK.’
