Somethin Tae think aboot before the Scottish Elections in a couple o weeks

While walking down the street in Edinburgh one day a Member of the Scottish Parliament is tragically hit by a bus and dies.

His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

“Welcome to heaven,” says St. Peter. "Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around here, you see, so we’re not sure what to do with you.

“No problem, just let me in,” says the MSP.

“Well, I’d like to, but I have orders from higher up. What we’ll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity.”

“Really, I’ve made up my mind. I want to be in heaven,” says the MSP.

“I’m sorry, but we have our rules.”

And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the lift and he goes down, down, down to hell. The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him.

Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and blether about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the Scottish people.

They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and champagne. Also present is the devil, who really is very friendly who has a good time dancing and telling jokes. They are having such a good time that before he realizes it, it is time to go.

Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the lift rises. The lift goes up, up, up and the door reopens on heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him.

“Now it’s time to visit heaven.”

So, 24 hours pass with the MSP joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.

“Well, then, you’ve spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose your eternity.”

The MSP reflects for a minute, then he answers: “Well, I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in hell.”

So St. Peter escorts him to the lift and he goes down, down, down to hell. Now the doors of the lift open and he’s in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and rubbish.

He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the rubbish and putting it in black bags as more rubbish falls from above.

The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulder “I don’t understand,” stammers the MSP. "Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there’s just a wasteland full of rubbish and my friends look miserable. What happened?

The devil looks at him, smiles and says, “Yesterday we were campaigning. ….Today you voted.”

Av never seen such a bunch o hopeless characters wantin a vote in aw ma life..think i will go for a walk wi the dugs insteed o givin ony o that lot ma time

    How did you know to use Robin & Nottingham? I just watched Cate Blanchette / Rusty (Crow)’s movie version of that! Did you see that thing about the possiblity that William Wallace was Robin? The English tried to outlaw him but because he became so popular they claimed him as British to stop the Scots from Gloating – or something like that – have to dig it up again …..

  • of course it wis wallace just like king arthur wis scottish anaw..they pinch aw oor heroes!
