they changed their plaid into a more colourful version as the need for camoflage changed into a need for a more urban fashion statement

not only that but if the victorians hadn't stripped all the harling off the buildings to create a fake image of scottish architecture as a landscape of bare stone romantic ruins you would have seen scotland as it really was: a riot of colour

as for the haggis....who gives a shit

even our national bards 'address to the haggis' is a piece of comedy!

''Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face,
Great chieftain o the puddin'-race!!''

ha ha hilarous! chieftan of the pudding race! brilliant

try not to be too jelous of's showing a little
when the people in power want you dead, just existing is a revolutionary act
