The Virtuous Triangle

I have come to observe, by thinking too much about it, that when it comes down to it, I really don't give a shit about shit that happens outside of the Falkirk, Stirling & Alloa spheres of influence.

Good riddance the rest.

Edwin Muir, Scottish Journey, 1935


"As I neared Stirling I could see on my right a cloud of dense darkness, which showed where Falkirk lay around its furnaces. I decided I had seen enough of this ravaged country, and as I drove into Stirling with its bright, solid country town air, I felt as if I had been wandering in a strange World and was back again in the Scotland I knew."

Oops, sorry Edwin for the audacity of people to make stuff for a job, in Scotland of all places! Clearly this will never happen again.

Didn't mind it when Falkirk was making arms and explosives for the War soon to come though .....
