Nipping Wee Nippy


We hear today that Nicola Sturgeon's daily coronavirus press briefings are from now not going to be shown every day on BBC One Scotland and BBC Scotland. 

From now on the BBC will only broadcast them as and when "editorial merit" demands. 

Opposition parties in Scotland regularly accuse the First Minister of using the briefings to score partisan points. They have been furiously complaining to the BBC for months, calling on the Corporation to stop giving just one politician (from the governing party in Scotland) an hour or so's free range every day.

It seems that the BBC has finally come round to their way of thinking. 

Has Tim Davie had any say in this? It is his doing?
