Hung or Balanced ? Deerhound or Bulldog ?

It’s funny how we here in Scotland refer to several parties working together for the good of the Scottish Nation in a parliament, as a ‘Balanced’ parliament. But the southern region within the ‘State’ of ‘The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland’ refer to the London based government doing the same thing as a ‘Hung parliament’.

Hmmm? - It’s like Scottish Deerhounds and British Bulldogs - there’s no difference really?

Anyway - hope you found the deerhounds in the earlier posting - but now that a Government has been appointed and the ‘UKofGB&NI’ is going to be guided by the new ‘Coalition’ or is that the ‘Conserviberal’ Party? The game is over. But enough of this complicated and very mad/sad world of politics - all we want to know is . . . will hounds be allowed to hunt again? It’s the work we are meant to do.

In the meantime - here’s an interesting postcard, I’m sure it’s depicting what the hounds are making of all the current proceedings.

Medieval Hunting Hound Service Station

A medieval reference to veterinarian practices for injured hunting hounds. Find out more here. ’course in Scotland we were doing this sort of stuff long before the Romans arrived and the birth of our nation - the Romans even produced the pottery depicting evidence of this. Keep it here for future postings.

Find the deerhounds

For a bit of fun - see if you can find the Scottish deerhounds quicker than the three and a bit nations that form the Unitary State of ‘The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland’ can find a government.
