Picture of the Week: The Lying Scotsman

Section:

An appropriate description of the SNP leader

 

The biggest donors to the campaign for Scottish independence thus far have been Colin and Chris Weir, a couple who won £161 million in the EuroMillions lottery in 2011. They’ve funded 79% of the ‘Yes’ campaign and now as Scotland prepares to vote on this stupid gamble, we had to make an image shared with us by Peter Burrell our Picture of the Week.

      • As a people and a country the Scots( who have supplied us with several Prime Ministers; most of the top military and business leaders) are perfectly capable of travelling on their own.
        If some of the failed countries, now members of the EU, can manage this great nation of Empire builders will certainly succeed on their own. Tough and determined people.
        What a ludicrous article. Get some decent political thinkers, Matthew. Not third raters…
