Christine Grahame, a South of Scotland MSP, submitted a motion entitled “It’s Simply Not Cricket” which “lamented the overwhelming UK-wide coverage of a sport which is only of marginal interest in Scotland”.
Petty, untrue nonsense. Who did she think she would impress by doing this? No doubt the sort of person who thinks you must be English if you don’t agree with the SNP (so, sadly, it’ll win her quite a few votes).
Maybe Christine Grahame and others like her could take a few lessons in the culture of the country she supposedly loves so much. There are more cricket clubs per capita in Scotland than there are in England. There are more cricket clubs in the lowlands than there are rugby clubs in the whole of Scotland.
