Sometimes, living in Edinburgh, you kind of get used to living in the glow of history. Famous residents from Hume to Donnchadh Bàn. Superb architecture. A history of multiculturalism stretching back 2000 years and more - of Picts, Britons, Gaels, Angles, French, Italians, Flemish, Poles and many more.
And then... one of the most odious - 'charismatic' to the right-wing English press - figures to have slithered into the garden of English politics for many a long year, dares to come north.
A new pride is born, as this total cnt and charlatan, is sent packing by an angry crowd.
