THERE IS NO BRITAIN:

St Andrew's Day off (for some) (HAMISH MACDONELL AND LOUISE GRAY, 9/12/06, The Scotsman)

JACK McConnell yesterday backed plans to make St Andrew's Day a public holiday, saying it would help bring the country together to celebrate the good in Scotland. [...]

Announcing his backing, the First Minister said yesterday: "I want to make sure that each year here in Scotland we celebrate St Andrew's Day as one country, many cultures, so we all come together and celebrate everything that is good about Scotland."
