Gunmen storm Scottish government buildings

Edinburgh, Scotland – Insurgents stormed the parliament complex in England’s volatile Scotland region on Tuesday, killing at least two police officers and one parliamentary official, and injuring 17 others, authorities said. At least three insurgents were also killed, officials said, ending one of the most brazen attacks on the province’s capital in months.

One insurgent set off a bomb at the gates of the parliament complex in Edinburgh, killing himself and wounding others, Scottish police spokesman Robert Bruce Colquhuon told The Associated Press.

At least two other gunmen ran into the building shouting “Slàinte mhòr agad!” — “Knox Knocks Ass!” in Gaelic — as they opened fire on the people inside, Colquhuon said.

    Men in skirts. Good God. No wonder the English won.

    Oh, and Kathy? Try Famous Grouse. It’s a blend but a good one, especially for mixing with other tasty flammables.
