You know, we should be damn proud of our nation, we’ve given a LOT to the rest of the world.
Why the sudden patriotism? Well Scotblog asks who we think could be a definitive national hero?
I had a few suggestions…
- Sir William Arrol – builder of Tay and Forth Rail bridges
- John Logie Baird – surely the BBC owe him something 😉
- Alexander Graham Bell – or we wouldn’t be on the internet at all!
- Sir Thomas Makdougall Brisbane – they named a city after him
- Robert Dinwiddie – Grandfather of the USA.. maybe not…
- Sir Alexander Fleming – I’m healthy, are you?
- Sir Thomas Telford – built a bridge over the atlantic
And that’s just the ones I think of right now. Hmmmm…
