Hmmm. Speaking as a native of Glasgow, I'd respectfully say this isn't true. Salt of the earth, I'd maintain.

BTW fun fact. "Scotchmen" was OK in the past: my Dad told me they'd call themselves "Scotch" in his youth. However, it's considered incorrect now so "Scots" or "Scottish".

So....Harry. Is there a story to go with your OP? I don't get the image BTW.

cheers donald :-D

I'm tempted to say "You should hear what they called His Grace".

But I can't see the image either so I don't know if it's appropriate.

Apparently His Grace hated Glasgow, preferring to stay in Edinburgh when visiting the Scottish Lands. A rare tactical error on His Nibs part wot he's still paying for to this day!
