Needless to say, there is no mention of any breakdown across the parts of ‘the nation’ and I doubt I’d get one (‘Oh the ‘regional’ samples are too small to be valid!’) but, fortunately we have many other recent sources of data telling us that there has been no surge of racism here. Indeed, the evidence is of falling racism generally. Don’t let the reporting of the Old Firm or the words of Scotland’s few Tory/Labour nutjobs deceive you.
‘Racial crime remains the most commonly reported hate crime. There were 3,249 charges reported in 2017-18. This continues the downward trend since a peak of 4,547 charges reported in 2011-12 and is the lowest annual total since consistent figures became available in 2003-04.’
For more evidence, see these recent examples:

Phew, Scottish Tories are still bigots, racists [and penis fantasizers]. I was worried they might be changing.

It is becoming very common now for articles/reports to be labelled as pertaining to the whole UK but when you read them it is England to which they refer.
Here is a blatant example – see link below.. About ‘Care desserts across the UK’ Yet when you read the article it seems to be England. Any doubt that this is the case is removed when you click on the link to the report within the article.
The first sentence in the Foreword says: “”I would like to express my thanks to Incisive Health, on behalf of Age UK, for producing this important report about the state of the market for social care in England.””
For people who just scan the headlines, and many do, labelling things as applying UK-wide hides from the people of England how bad things are and gives people in the rest of the UK the impression that things are just as bad where they are.
This sort of thing is occurring more and more frequently in the MSM. Lazy journalism or deception?

Yes, not one mention of Scotland.
Looking at the endless stream of misinformation to support, directly or indirectly, Unionism I now wonder how much of the war in NI was down to being fomented by the likes of the BBC.
