Is it my recent trip to Scotland (where the above, totally un-ridiculous photo was snapped; that's the tartan of Clan Burberry I'm wearing around my head, I believe), my affection for Braveheart and Rob Roy, or my undying loyalty to the House of Stuart that keeps me intrigued by the progress of the Scottish National Party?
