I think he means Broon, Darling and the rest of that merry gang of Picts.

Somehow a rather comic petition has snuck past the generally humourless censors at Petitions HQ:

"We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Grant Government Funding to Rebuild Hadrians Wall".

And the petitioner elaborates:

"This important monument has been allowed to fall into disrepair. The effects of the demise of this once great defence of the English realm can be witnessed by the prescence (sic) in parliament of so many of the peoples once resident to the north of the wall. It needs rebuilding and restoring to its former purpose of safeguarding the English from the further marauding invasions of those who should be excluded".

If it keeps Broon, Darling and the rest of the McMafia well away from these parts, I'm all for it. I imagine that Alec Salmond might favour the wall for keeping we English types out too.

Very amusing! What next? Unsavioury Welsh nationalists petitioning for Offa's Dyke to be re dug...

Go on, I dare you....

I don't see why the English taxpayer should foot the bill!

Oh, I think the Scots would be perfectly happy to pay their share.

Ed: While I agree with your sentiments, this might well be the only example of public funds well spent during the past 10 years. Think about it...
