It's greenatopia! New targets put Scotland first when it comes to writing things about stuff down. On paper, with a pen.

A veritable green Elysium beckons as this week. The Scottish Government signed a document of intent, committing the nation to the most ambitious programme of re-greening a complete society ever attempted in human history.

A spokesrecyclingbin told The JT: "With this document, Scotland is punching well above its weight when it comes to writing loads of stuff down about green things."

Professor Beaker, of an academic department in a Scottish University commented : "This document doesn't actually have much in the way of detail in it. Presumably we'll just all wake up one morning in the future, at some point, and everything will be OK, because space elves have de-carbonised our society during the night. Or something."

Elsewhere on planet politics this week, Nationalist MSP and pub-bore, Bill Wilson, called for food labelling in "Scots" as opposed to standard English.

It would appear that Bill, who clearly has far too much time on his hands, hasn't fully thought this one through. Mainly because he thinks Scots is a language and presumably thinks a "dialect" is a mechanised killer-robot thing that trundles after Doctor Who screaming "Exterminate! Exterminate!"

It's not funny, but it's true.
