Apparently the old backdrop from Reporting Scotland popped up on An La tonight

As did the caption “Jeremy Crobyn BP” for the leader of the Labour Party. They have the curious policy of translating names into Gaelic, followed by the English version. This was followed by “Jeremy Corbyn MP” - I presume that “Crobyn” was a mistake rather than an actual Gaelic version. The SNP’s Ian Blackford was captioned initially as “ Iain Blackford” but the Lib Dem leader didn’t get a translated name (nor was “Lib Dem Leader” translated) despite the fact she is Scottish.

Boris Johnson didn’t get a caption at all, although a remember seeing a former PM once being captioned as “Dàibhidh Camshron” - this also appears on Scottish Gaelic Wikipedia.
