Just leave Nessie and the kilt alone

I worry about the Scots’ apparent sense of humour loss, I really do.

I get the distinct impression that despite him gaining a very creditable share of the devolution vote - c’mon, it was a close call - some of them don’t much care whether we set light to/blow up or otherwise pillory Alex Salmond, just so long as we leave Nessie and the kilt alone. Hmm - an imaginary creature and an item of clothing symbolic of imperialist aggression popularised by sentimental Victorian novelists and royalty...

Wonder if they’d be so exercised if we set fire to a saltired UFO or a tartan mankini?

Light & peace the noo,
