WORTH FRAMING

Let’s have Marxist Love Island (Rod Liddle, Sunday Times, July 17th, 2005)

British philosophers tend to fall into two equally alienating and hostile camps. On the one hand there are those who are not entirely certain what a table is. And then there’s a whole bunch of rather forbidding Scottish people, stereotypically terribly worried about money, who have spent too many interminable Saturday evenings, friendless, in the granite and drizzle of Aberdeen or Leith.

I don't know about Leith so much, but "granite and drizzle" is a perfect pocket description of Aberdeen.

I enjoyed the football metaphor:

"they pass the ball around nicely, but they lack that killer punch in the penalty area and are sometimes suspect at the back."

And a fair one of Nashua.
