GKirk Goes To London This Weekend....oh Dear

Wed Aug 09, 2006 6:44 pm

Righty ho, it seems that I shall be popping down to London this weekend with Nighthawk and MYT332.
As you know, I'm a fierce Scotsman  Wink so I'll be looking for a few Scottish pubs in the Londres area. Anyone know of any?
Or do I have to go around kicking the hell out of all the Cockney bastards?  Wink

If you move from Scotland to England, you will thereby raise the average I.Q. in both of those places.
