Glad to hear your making such good progress. I hope you didn't sport a string vest to finish off the Rab C look!

Did you get to keep the boney bit?

I actually know who Rab C character was based on. He wasn't quite the articulate man about town that Rab C was but it is a real person.

If you ever were on the night buses in Glasgow, especially the 12:30 to renfrew about 15 years ago you would know exactly who I was talking about.
I am afraid I was too young and good looking at the time for it to be me.....

Well I can confirm his skills at operating a mini excavator are best described as 'poor'

When Billy Connelly was actually a Scot he used to be funny, although I use to work with folk who knew him from Partick before he was famous and weren't very complimentary about him then either.....

His early stand up is the best and I've heard he has his anti fans. At one point he managed to upset half of scotland didn't he? Then there was the Auzzy scots who tried to linch mob him. He's just an old hippy with a quick tounge but I like his out look on life

Originally he was one of us, now he is one of them.
It is one thing to take the p**s when you are part of something but another to stand outside and p**s all over the folk still there.
Sir Sean is another, "Being a Scot" indeed. When was the last time he lived here!
I personally am Canadian born but since I haven't lived there for over 20 years I can hardly feel justified in telling everyone there how to vote and everything they are doing wrong......
Don't get me started...............
