Perhaps Megan will be Queen of Canada now that her and the foxy lad have left the Royal family to move there.

Perhaps the Don in question is world-renowned for be the cause of piping-related threads going walkabout?

Bob,

Very good, 😄.

Since the start of BrExit the UK and little Englanders have never been less relevant.


To keep it piping related a British piper will now need to apply for a visa to be allowed to travel to play on the beaches of Normandy. But they will have a blue UK passport that does not have European Union on the cover, which is good for the jingoism but ironically is made in Poland.


Paul.

I still can't read the article because of the sites failure to comply with GDPR.

You are correct sir, he was the PM for North Texas Caledonian Pipes and Drums.

I first met him when it was visiting my local library talking about and playing his pipes

Don is a nice guy. PM of North Texas Caledonians out of Dallas. Good player. Good teacher.

Newspapers often say whatever they want.
