Today it was reported by the “News and Star” that Christopher Harvey, MSP for the Scottish National Party, described the Scottish youth as wearing ‘the ugliest clothes worn by anyone on the entire continent’. While he is certainly right, he should also note that the Scottish youth are some of the most socially deprived in the OECD, and that in deprived areas the money is probably more likely to be spend on a six-pack of lager and a new knife than a suit.
The Scotland of today is not the fairy tale Europeans want to see. This is a significantly torn nation struggling to come to grips with generations of underprivileged beneficiaries.
Their dress-sense reflects this.
