Stephen Jardine: Put roof on Scotland, Jack.

Byline: Stephen Jardine

IT could be the answer to all our problems. At the Scotland versus Australia cricket match last week, rain stopped play before it had even started.

Looking across the marquee at Jack McConnell, I saw the solution.

The First Minister should lay out plans to build a glass roof to cover the whole of Scotland. It would be a showcase for our engineering talent as well as well as making us a drier, happier nation.

As a result, we wouldn't have to drown our sorrows so alcoholism would decline and we'd all start eating salad. Of course, roofing the whole of Scotland wouldn't come cheap. But I bet it still couldn't cost as much as the Scottish Parliament
