Fuck's sake. I'm watching a piece of British propaganda on TV.
An empty carriage is meant to show how much our monarch loves us.
In one of the biggest festivals in the country.
They are so stupid.

He's the one on the right
The Scotch - what a verminous race!
Canny, pushy, chippy, they're all over the place.
Battening off us with false bonhomie;
Polluting our stock, undermining our economy.
Down with sandy hair and knobbly knees!
Suppress the tartan dwarves and the Wee Frees!
Ban the kilt, the skean-dhu and the sporran
As provocatively, offensively foreign!
It's time Hadrian's Wall was refortified
To pen them in a ghetto on the other side.
I would go further. The nation
Deserves not merely isolation
But comprehensive extermination.
We must not flinch from a solution.
(I await legal prosecution.)

I once worked for the City of Edinburgh Libraries; about twenty years ago small branch libraries were asked to manually delete individual accounts, long overdues, huge fines, etc. to help larger branches, like Morningside.
I got a sheaf of them, as we all did.
One of them stuck out, mainly because of the unusual surname, and the title of the first book on the list.
...Of the six long overdue books,,,
"How to write children's books".
I wonder if ECL has a case to sue this particular author?
