Life in a Scotch Parliament

Motion to the Scottish Parliament

S2M-4072 Pauline McNeill: "I am concerned for you to enjoy yourself within the limits of British decency" - Death of Ivor Cutler—That
the Parliament expresses its deep sadness and regret at the death of

bred in Glasgow; extends its condolences to his surviving family and
friends; notes the profound influence that Cutler had on fellow Scots,
Billy Connolly and members of the band, Franz Ferdinand, as well as
Bertrand Russell, The Beatles and John Peel, and recognises the
outstanding contribution which he made to his art and Scottish culture
through his unique insight and wit.

I'm sure Ivor Cutler would have had a right good laugh at the absurdity of a motion in parliament mourning his death! A maverick genius who'll be remembered fondly.

I'm sure half those MSP's had never heard of him.
