    Can’t help thinking that you’ve just opened the blinds on the window of opportunity and allowed the light of inspiration to blaze through…


    It’s a win-win thing. Increased revenue from the licences and permits. Sir Horace Chinless-F’eckWitt and his chums get their bag-limits. The innocent bred-for-slaughter birds are left to fend for themselves. The foundation-classes are thinned out. Police costs are returned to pre-riot levels. Shopkeepers are forever grateful and promise to support their saviours and so Tweed becomes desirable and sales boom. The Scottish fabric industry is revived. More folk take up the “Tweed and Shotgun” image and hence more shooters are available for crowd-control.

    We have plenty of men with vision.

    No, hang on a minute…

    We have plenty of men with televisions. 58″ plasma and stuff like that. From Currys the other night, IIRC. They’re all sitting around watching hi-def panoscreen coverage of the unrest because there’s nowt else on and the footie’s been cancelled.
