Or just laying bare the hypocrisy in the laudable ''One Scotland, Many Cultures'' message,proudly proclaimed by those running our country?

I read that and though he was being sarcastic I have no idea what exactly McKenna was being sarcastic about.

Turn on, Tune in, Drop out.

He’s taking the mick (no pun intended) out of an unenforceable silly initiative

I like some of his political stuff but find some of his attempts at humour painful.

Think he is subtly trying to highlight some of the remaining hypocrisy around
sectarianism that still pervades Scottish society despite the progress over the last 20 years or so.

Well known figures like Ian Durrant in the media this week and others
like Donald Finlay simply emphasise there is some way to go.

Funny how when the recent Orange /Black walk was rerouted by the council in the east end of Glasgow to avoid going past a Catholic Church after a previous incident the organisers cancelled the “event”.
