The Earl of Seafield is reputed to have said ,as he signed the Act of Union,
"There's the end of an auld sang!"
The current incumbent, having pissed the family estates away or snorted them up his nose still sits in the Lords.
He was government spokesman on forestry during Maggie's rule-----appropriate as the NE OF SCOTLAND was stripped of hardwoods in nhis youth to pay his gambling debts!
I no longer can vote in Scotland,but I'd love to see him and his ilk subject to a truly independent Scottish Government.
Wouild the English then be happy to fund his attendance in the LORDS---he's THEIR puppet,after all!
