‘Put a kilt on it’ Roy Greenslade on English run titles in Scotland

It’s a question being quietly discussed in corners if bars and newsrooms. What happens after the Referendum on September 18?

There’s been plenty of discussion about the impact on broadcasting in Scotland. But what of the Press in Scotland?

Will it mean more cuts or investment? Would anyone dare back a new launch in event of a Yes vote? Or indeed a No, Might it have no impact at all?

That discussion hasn’t been asked directly in this piece by The Guardian’s Roy Greenslade. 

‘English newspapers’ still sell 500,000 copies a day in Scotland

But his numbers do give some food for thought.

For interest, Greenslade states that The Guardian shifts some 9,621 copies in Scotland.
