    If Edinburgh can call itself "Athens of the North" then why can't the whole of Scotland call itself "Greece of the North"? Seems fair to me.

    Greek debt has already had the medicine, the rest of world not. Smart money is buying Greek shares like there's no tomorrow.

These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Since selling the house, I'm sitting on a pile of cash, mostly Euro. Looking forward to pick up some bargains.

    Nah, they'll not let go of Wales. And the Welsh love to be dominated.

    There will need to be a hard border between England and Scotland. Now that's something we can all support...
