Sounding Scottish

It is time I relieved myself of a feeling of irritation caused by Will Self. I put my hand up at a public meeting a couple of years ago and asked him his opinion of the then-impending referendum on Scottish independence. Self stared at me and said sarcastically 'You don't sound Scottish'.

The usual retort to this accusation is to quote Hancocks Half Hour : ' we're not all Rob Roys, you know' but I forgot, and have been kicking myself ever since.
