AND FINALLY: Rule Britannia

This publication supports the Scotland No campaign even if it means putting up with the Scottish soccer results on National TV on a Saturday afternoon. 

This is the monthly cruise edition of BTN.  It is quite clear which way the holiday liner operators want to go.  And Hebridean is based in Oban. 

The Union was created 300 years ago because the Scots got themselves into a financial mess, and whilst it has had it ups and downs over the years it has largely worked. 

On the travel front more mature readers may recall Caledonian Airways, no longer around, and Loganair is now disguised as Flybe. 

British Airways would need a large repainting job (and maybe a name change.  But England, Wales and Northern Ireland Airways does not have much of a ring about it).

The Edinburgh government recently purchased the loss-making Prestwick Airport but has so far failed to publish any plans for a turnaround.

Better together.
