north of Berwick is bootleggin’.
This here’s Glasgow, son.
When hearing the latest ruse of Glenn Quagmire errr… Alex Salmond and his gaggle of cronies at the little pretendy parliament to target the drinkers of alcoholic beverages in Jockland, I couldn’t help but think back to yesterday’s post about Jerry Reed and his part in “Smokey And The Bandit”.
South bound and down, loaded up and truckin’,
We gonna do what they say can’t be done.
We’ve got a long way to go and a short time to get there.
I’m south bound, just watch ol’ “Bandit” run.
Keep your foot hard on the pedal. Son, never mind them brakes.
Let it all hang out ’cause we got a run to make.
The boys are thirsty in Aberfeldy and there’s Buckie in Devon County.
And we’ll bring it back no matter what it takes.
What chance now that a certain supermarket will see the potential and buy all the free land along the line of a famous border from Roman times and the title is changed from Hadrian’s to Tesco’s Wall.
Now if these plans go through it’ll seriously cut down the amount of pwoud vewy pwoud news items on Jock’o’vision news, as last night’s broadcast where you could sense the national pride about the country downloading the most illegal music and films and buying the most knockoff goods.
What will the nation do when they can’t fly the flag by being the unhealthiest country in the western world, what will happen when they drop from the top of the heart attack/stroke/cancer/liver disease leagues?
And then there’s the underage pregnancies how are they going to keep up the population when the youths of the country can’t afford the amount of booze it would take for even them to remotely consider putting any part of their person into one of those 14 year old chav slappers that populate the likes of the Jeremy Kyle show.
I’m thinking they haven’t really thought through the real effect this could have on the country.
