No viking good
According to the British media, Nordic = good, whether it’s life-style, politics or telly programmes. But one’s supicions are aroused when it is reported that the Scottish renegade tendency actually fancies joining the Viking club. There must be some facts about the Norsemen that would make for less positive press – which the Fat Controller doesn’t want us to find out.
Luckily the Grauniad hastens to our aid with a tasty piece of reportage about the real Scandinavia; written this time by a hack who just possibly understands something about the region, being married, like me, to a Dane.
