A Hogmanay Message From Mr Kirk Elder, esq

Mr Elder has recovered from the beanstalk incident, and is currently performing in the Peebles' Showboaters' Christmas Show, Peer Gynt on Ice. He had hoped to post a seasonal message today, but found himself struck dumb by the ferocious imagination of the recent address by the First Meenister, Mr Jack McConnell, who [paraphrasing slightly] said that, with luck, a good deal of hard work, and the continuing goodwill of HM Treasury, London, Scotland could be quite a good wee place, occasionally. If you didn't think about it too much.
In the true spirit of the season, Mr Elder has agreed to re-publish his Hogmanay message from 2003, amending a word or two to "freshen it up".
