WHO WOULD WE WANT AS HEAD OF STATE IN AN INDEPENDENT SCOTLAND?


WHO WOULD WE WANT AS HEAD OF STATE IF WE WERE INDEPENDENT?


I am going to put up a poll for this and would like some suggestions from you.  Would the position be hereditary like our present Royal Family? Would someone be invited by a panel of the GREAT and GOOD. Would we have an ELECTION?


WHO COULD THE CANDIDATES BE?

I propose for discussion the following:

H.M. THE QUEEN
PRINCESS ANNE
PRINCE CHARLES
THE FIRST MINISTER AT THE TIME
AN ELECTED PRESIDENT, INDEPENDENT OF THE PARTY POLITIC
SEAN CONNERY
BILLY CONNELLY
ANN GLOAG
LORD FOULKES (just kidding)
Who else in your opinion would make a WORTHWHILE HEAD of STATE?

STOP PRESS

NOMINATIONS SO FAR- NONE, EVERYONE, RAB C. NESBETT, BILLY CONNELLY, ELECTED HEAD OF STATE, QUEEN, LORRAINE KELLY.
(I'm beginning to think you Bastards are taking the pish)

ANYMORE BEFORE IT GOES UP?

OK DL I can either answer this seriously or not depends where the keys strikes take me.

How's about Scotland does something truly revolutionary and doesn't bother.

What's the Head of state for? Just farts around at public expense and meets other criminal heads of state.

Benefits we won't have any more terrorist/gangster/rabidtheocrats/ideoligues and assorted nutters pitching up for state visits.

If they do turn up we'll send some wee boys down to the airport and tell them to fuck off!!

There. And that was the serious version.

Sounds reasonable incoming, if anybody came for a state visit, they'd have to greet everybody in the country personally.
Oooer, sounds communist!

What about Rantin Rab?

Personally I'm not keen on having a 'head of state'. Another unionist anachronism. However I would put forward 'The Big Yin' as a Scottish 'ambassador' - although he does have his royal connections. He could tell some jokes to any visiting dignitaries - JOBBIE! WILLY! BUM!

scunnert said...

Here in Canada the head of state is the Governor General (the queen's representative). Up until 1952 it was usually a duke or an earl imported from blighty. Today it's a black woman immigrant from Haiti.

The Young Oligarch said...

HM The Queen - with a non-party , elected Regent .

I humbly propose myself for that onerous , and lucrative , role .

Dark Lochnagar said...

INCOMING!!!!!I can be serious sometimes. Your suggestion is a good one. I suppose though that someone would have to greet visiting dignataries, although the Speaker of the Parliament could do it. It's just that he's such a crabbit bastard.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Headson. That sounds ok. The only problem is that people in Edinburgh would have to take their turn eventually. Imagine Obama turning up at a douce Edinburgh House and being greeted with "come in, Mr President, YOU'LL HAVE HAD YOUR TEA". It would be an embarrassement!

Dark Lochnagar said...

Don't call me Dave. Fred your suggestion is excellent with Rab either our one, or the real one in the series would be fair Ambassadors for Scotland, particularly if they were pished and rantin!

Dark Lochnagar said...

F.V. Connelly would be an excellent Head of State. He certainly wouldn't stand for any shit!

Dark Lochnagar said...

Scunnert, how did she get the job. Was she elected or appointed?

Dark Lochnagar said...

Oli, the Queen sems to do well when she officiates at anything here. I would quite like to see Princess Anne if we have to have a Royal, which I am not sure has to be the case. However we have to have someone with a bit of decorum so they don't show us up!

banned said...

Would HM The Queen have to be re-styled Queen Elizabeth I of Scotland and QEII of everywhere else ? Might be messy on the stationary.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Good point.Banned. She should of course be Elizabeth 1, but I don't know what the stationary says in Scotland. Probably better just to bypass her and go for Anne, but then again she would probably be President Elizabeth instead of Queen.

sensible solution said...

I'd nominate Lorraine Kelly. She's a ride.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Sensible, your dead right. I've fancied her for ages. I could shag her to a band playing Dixie, as they used to say.

sensible solutions r us said...

I've heard she goes like a belt fed wombat and loves Arabs. So dress up like Sheikyerboaby and your bell end will drop off after a week but it would have been worth it.

Edgar said...

Peter Mandelson. He's after another title just now and few people know that he is distantly unrelated to the infamous Tam O'Shanter the All-Caledonia cross-country cross-dressing champion.

Dark Lochnagar said...

S.S. R US. It would be my drean to get a BJ off Lorraine and then to.....enough I'm getting carried away!

Dark Lochnagar said...

Edgar, The Lord of the Rings would be a controversal choice as President although there may be a class of voter who would get a little frission if he was in charge!
