The Scottish Nationality Test: How Scottish are You?
By (author) Cameron McPhail
At a time when Scotland is once again considering life as an independent nation, “The Scottish Nationality Test” is essential reading for any citizen or visitor with a sense of humour. So, how Scottish are you? Try your hand at Gender Studies to find out what makes your average Scottish male tick and what Scottish women really think of Scottish men. Discover the correct technical term for a small Edinburgh man sandwiched between two feuding Glaswegians and bask in the Scottish definition of a heatwave. In Modern Studies, there’s also some not too taxing questions on finance, mostly to do with how Fred Goodwin got away with it for so long. And along with questions on sport and Scottish life, “The Scottish Nationality Test” will truly tell you just how Scottish you are. And it’s laugh-out-loud funny too.
Dr Cameron McPhail is a once-staid banker turned humorist. After stints in academia and Scottish Enterprise, he joined the Royal Bank of Scotland and rose to be Chief Executive of Wealth Management. He left after falling out with the somewhat notorious Fred the Shred and took to writing joke books as a form of therapy.
