A HIGH-FLYING Scotsman has become the leader of one of Germany's wealthiest states.
David McAllister, 39 - formerly known to all as Mac and now dubbed "Big Mac" - took over the premiership of Lower Saxony this week after incumbent Christian Wulff was voted into the presidency of Germany in Berlin.

@Ceili,
That might well be. But we play better football!

----------

On another note: a Scotsman now is head of the government of the "House of Hannover" Wink
a) Hannover is written with two "n" - from earliest times onwards until today,
b) Hannover is the capital of the state of Lower Saxony

is this how they're going to sell the one world government to us, by having citizens from one country run another, the welsh now run australia, the scots are on their way to running germany, the kenyans run america

@Walter Hinteler,
No doubt we can look forward to the introduction of deep-fried Mars Bars sometime soon in Niedersachsen.

(btw Newton Mearns is only about five miles from the place I come from.)
