Hopefully a scheme just like this will be responsible for something going seriously wrong (or should that be seriously right) with the VIP care at the forthcoming Olympics.

Too treet-wise. They needed to find more 'innocents' who still believe in the promise.....

Don't worry Fluffy! After the Communist uprising in what's left of the UK, this sort of thing will never be allowed again. Heads would roll! All the way to Siberia...

I was also wondering about the need for busing in the serfs, Choudoufu, but doubtless the contractor had to offer equal "opportunity" to those from every corner of the blighted fair isle, and could claim lots of inflated costs off the back of it.

scot 47,

Do you really think so? According to the very recent YouGov/Labour Party survey, only 33% of voters in Scotland want independence; 57% are opposed. Nearly half (47%) said they thought Scotland would be financially worse off after separation. Only 27% said it would be richer.

Yes. I wouldn´t be surprised if the Sassenachs opted to be independent of us Scots. Think of their savings in health care alone. Glasgow must be the most unhealthy city in Europe. Apparently, Shettlestone in the East End of Glasgow has a diminishing life expectancy. As for Salmond (Wee Eck), who could have any confidence in a man married to a woman 17 years his senior? What a bunch we are!
