Big picture of The Proclaimers on the front page of The Herald today, they gave £10,000 to the yes camp and immediately got much more publicity than £10,000 could possibly buy in return. These millionaires are “flinging their money about like men wi nae airms” as the ‘old fella’ used to say. They cannae play and they cannae sing, but they are as fly and sleazy as any Capitalist hustlers or Shake Down Artists out there and they are great businessmen. They have a niche market and they are going to cling to it just like Andy Stewart and Harry Lauder did before them. The money they donate is an investment. Between them they have two eyes crying with pity for poor old Scotland and the other two shining with financial calculation.
