A Berwickshire Bull is rarely pregnant to slightly misquote Professor Mahaffy, Provost of Trinity College Dublin who being asked to define an Irish Bull said that it "was always pregnant"
Berwickshire Show Urged on by A Peasant-see post immediately below-Huttonian returned to the show ground with a working camera and all included in the wickedly low 'Concession' (ugh)of £1. By the time of my second visit the tweedy set and the horses with them had mostly departed leaving a choice of viewing in the arena of classic cars, cows (embracing bulls as it were) and tractors. Amongst the stalls you could find the Tories (click on image and Mr Lamont will jump up at you, centre, tall, cord trousers and conservative wellies-carefully not Green)) Lib Dems, and the 'Real' Tartan Army recruiting people bouncing little boys up an inflatable assault course-even an opportunity to shoot arrows, sadly not at the Bouncy Castles.
As I left the action was moving into the beer tents
Not an event for the style junkie, then. The assembled multitude almost make Clarissa Dickson-Wright seem like a chic wee piece of thistledown.... At least your absence from the poultry tent means that you're not given to chasing the birds. Given the total absence of a programme or even a map of where the show was, one didn't attend. Suppose it kept the tourists away.
Sorry A Peasant; chickens in my (cookery) book best roasted with a choice of veg.Plenty of style if you are tweedy and horsey and like cracking the whip. Even a few Kilts around. One MSP out of one andour MP did make an appearance-high profile at 6'6"-I had foolishly not checked the beer tent. Claim for expenses : Three Pints IPA for humouring constituents?"
