BBC Scottish Independence Campaign Reporter Ridiculed Over #GeographyFail

As Scots to prepare to vote for Thursday's independence referendum, the BBC's correspondent Christian Fraser reported to viewers about the last-ditch work by both sides to convince undecided voters.

"I'm sure there are two armies of activists marching the pavements, banging the doors in estates like this one," he said, reporting live on lunchtime news from the town of Livingston, in the West Lothian region.

Unfortunately, Fraser drew ridicule online as he claimed that Livingston was actually in north-east Glasgow, a city it is actually more than 30 miles away from.

Fraser's slip will not help the BBC's reputation in Scotland, as pro-independence campaigners have taken to the streets demanding the sacking of its "liar" political editor Nick Robinson.

Livingston, not looking like "north-east Glasgow"...

The BBC was also forced to deny accusations that it had edited out Respect MP George Galloway allegedly comparing Scottish Nationalists to Nazis.
