Still Legal to Shoot a Scotsman… 2006-08-31

Posted by clype in Articles of Interest, Intolerance, Scotland.

Citizens of York are being asked to sign a treaty promising never to shoot Scots with a bow and arrow.Under an ancient by-law, which has never been repealed, York people can ‘legally’ shoot Scotsmen with a bow and arrow within the city walls.

But a couple from the city are walking 240 miles to Edinburgh to present the Lord Provost with a “peace treaty”.

Ewan and Gill Main have asked York residents to sign their treaty in a bid to improve Anglo-Scottish relations, and raise money for Survive, a charity which helps child victims of sexual abuse, .

Each signatory must promise to never shoot a Scotsman with a bow and arrow, and to make Scots feel welcome in York.

Mr and Ms.Main will set off on 2006-09-08, and hope to arrive in Edinburgh two weeks later, reports ‘The Scotsman Newspaper’.
