British Newspaper Archive Issues

The BNA tweeted out "Cajoling and coaxing of servers is ongoing and new titles are arriving on the site.  We have some syncing to do.."
Those technical issues perhaps explain why posting of new material on the site has been spasmodic recently with gaps of days between new material appearing.
What it doesn't explain is why preference is being given to Scottish and Irish materials. Overall on a per capita basis Ireland accounts for 76% more pages than England, Scotland 21% more. For the period of the First World War Ireland has 30% more, Scotland 26% pages per capita.
