"see you, jimmy - careful with the weary, old patronising stereotypes there. i'm in scotland -well, glasgow-"
You must excuse my somewhat wry humour - I got it from my Dad who was born in Glasgow (don't know if The Ridgeway is still there)
I know well that Scotland is fully capable of standing on its own two feet - probably more-so than Britain now, as things stand at present
I just haven't made up my mind about the SNP yet
You are aware of course that one of Ireland's greatest heroes (certainly our family's), James Connolly, was born in Edinburgh
I have to say that one of the few football matches I ever attended - a Celtic/Rangers derby, was the first time I'd ever seen men in cages
"You forgot to mention Scotland's greatest products"
And you forgot to mention Alec Douglas Home - but we all have our cross to bear
