Salmond-Cameron ‘Edinburgh Agreement’ last week’s most written-about story, says survey

AN agreement struck between First Minister, Alex Salmond, and Prime Minister, David Cameron – concerning the practicalities of the upcoming referendum on whether Scotland should be independent – was last week’s most written-about story among the UK’s main national newspapers and the BBC’s website.

Says a survey by the charity, the Media Standards Trust, the so-called ‘Edinburgh Agreement’ attracted some 215 articles.

With 205 articles, the second most written about story was Andrew Mitchell resigning as Tory chief whip, amid allegations he called a police officer a ‘pleb’.

In third place – with 127 articles – was Home Secretary, Theresa May, blocking the extradition of computer hacker, Gary McKinnon.
