One of my favourite soundbites from Trainspotting (by the main character, Renton) goes something like:

'It's SHITE being Scottish!...Some hate the English. I don't. They're just wankers. We, on the other hand, are COLONISED by wankers. We can't even find a decent country to be colonised BY'

A relatively minor niggle that never ceases to irk is when you hear Great Britain refered to generically as 'England'

With that in mind, I was bemused by this weeks new media age cover story around the exclusive screening of the England v Ukraine World Cup qualifier via ppv on the web rather than tv.

One would think the sub ed at nma would have access to the google machine should he have any difficulty with geography, but no. The line reads..
'With the UK VERSUS UKRAINE game getting no tv coverage, are people ready for live sports streaming'...

UK V Ukraine?

Thanks, but no thanks. Scotland are out and we'll deal with it.
