Have your say

Now that the Scottish people have spoken and decided to stay in the UK, a thought strikes me.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to see once again our Scottish football and rugby teams take the field against international competitors to the stirring, patriotic strains of Scotland the Brave, instead of that anti-English dirge, Alex Salmond’s theme tune, which must be incomprehensible to the opposition except for England, who find it mildly amusing – England who, regrettably, too often send us homewards to think again.
