Alex Salmond interview: Jo Coburn aspires to the Kirsty Wark rudeness crown

Kirsty Wark, in her appalling interviewing of Alex Salmond some time ago, set the template for this performance by Jo Coburn. This is not political interviewing, it is simplistic, aggressive questioning, devoid of courtesy or indeed any forensic interviewing skills - frantic metropolitan-media type bullying. Contrast it with the effective style that follows it. (Isabel Fraser)

When will Scotland be rid of these Southern media types - or when will they learn their craft, and some manners.

(The technical incompetence on the screen display in the second section is embarrassing. Did nobody at the BBC notice that the bottom section of the picture had moved to the top - like the vertical hold problems on old tv sets?  If they did, why the hell didn't they correct it? Get a grip, BBC Scotland!)
