Italians settled in Scotland and loved the plaice

Italians settled in Scotland and loved the plaice

An interesting story this morning in the Scottish press written by Ken Smith. It does have a terrible fish pun title that would not be out of place on a Benny Hill show and the opening story does sound a little wobbly ..... we have heard this story a few times now, the last time is was changing statues of plaster saints into Garibaldi (or was it the other way round? ) but apart from that Barga is still making the news in Scotland.

Whether Paisley Buddies are less God-fearing or less interested in the veneration […]
