Grey Day.

Courtesy of Drumlanrig, "Edinburgh Castle was the venue for the party of the week when Jamie McGrigor celebrated his Tartan Register Bill receiving Royal Assent. The passage of the bill has been a long road for Jamie, who seems to have spent much of his political life working for a National Tartan Register.The booze-up in the Great Hall was a fine affair with most of the guests rigged out like extras from Brigadoon. The success of the event was no thanks to Alex Salmond, who could not decide whether to come or not. His indecision led to a two-week delay in the invitations being sent out. When the invitations did arrive, dress code was described as "Tartan" – a fact ignored by Jim Mather, the Tourism Minister, who arrived in a grey suit."
