THE RUMOUR McMILL.
Scottish legal circles thrum to a couple of current post-referendum rumours: which prominent politician, when an undergraduate, was so incensed by a boyfriend's infidelity that, with her teeth, she almost removed the poor man's errant penis? Which prominent politician is planning to retire to Canada but is in a quandary over whether to take his wife, his mistress or both? All very Louis Quatorze, the latter, but then, in honour of the cowardly Prince Charlie and his scarpering abroad, we do have road signs in French; perhaps, again, we will see a King Across The Water, in Quebec.
Ugly rumours, maybe they are a lawyer thing; who, after all, in our legislature could behave so badly?
