Georgia for Aye
I know it is still the silly season in Berwickshire but is it really silly enough for that esteemed organ The Berwickshire News
to publish the following letter:
Your readers and yourself will, as I am, be concerned about the situation in Georgia just now and so will, I am sure, be interested in the following which I have written as Regent of the Kingdom of Scotland, confirmed as such by the Parliament of the Kingdom of Scotland in 2000 at its very first meeting, to the editor and readers of Georgia’s only English language newspaper, ‘The Messenger’.
“Dear Editor - This letter is to tell you and your readers that your dear country has the full support of the Kingdom of Scotland especially at this time.
Do remember all of you that David always wins against Goliath, that Truth is mighty and shall prevail.”
MICHAEL ANDREW RITCHIE,
Regent and Acting Chancellor,
Chief Minister of the Kingdom of Scotland,
I was demonstrating to a fellow blogger at "Ici on trouve le Web" at the Beg Meil Garage how superior our regional papers were to the Le Telegramme
, a local daily. He was suitably impressed until he came to Mr Ritchies latest effusion. I tried to explain in questionable Franglais the background and context. At the end he said something to the effect that with the support of the brave Ecossiers the people of Georgia can sleep peacefully in their beds? Ne cest pas.? so I may have not made myself entirely clear. I tried again with more gesticulations;"Ah do you mean that Monsieur le soi disant Regent is un peu touchè?"
Always mindful of the law of libel I contented myself with a cautious "peutetre"
These French keyboards not only lack the 'At' sign but have no apostrophe. Sorry Lynne Truss)
