Donald Dewar. DONALD f*cking DEWAR!!!

Blow half a billion on a self indulgent pile of crap and earn the respect of the nation... Am I living in some kind of parallel universe here???? I haven't belatedly come across an April Fool have I?

It was half a billion of English money.

William Wallace never managed to rob that much.

...redistributed by Blair/Brown who got elected in the first place by English voters - thanks a bunch:*

What's going on in people's minds to think Dewar is historically more important than say Fleming? Give all the Braveheart fans a dose of VD - that might focus their minds a bit...:E

My vote, FWIW.

Fleming (though he was lucky)

Baird (Farnsworth had a much better version, though)

Bell? (even though he stole the idea?)


You'll have to convince me re the others. Caused a lot of death and suffering, some of them.

I'd agree re Dewar. Give me strength! :*

Along those lines, you'd have thought Rod F*****g Stewart would have made the cut. :yuk: :mad:
