Message to my French friends Pascal et Al line and anyone else listening to Scotland’s pleas.

Le Mur c’est formidable et parfaite pour le frontière entre l’Ecosse et l’Angleterre. L’Europe toujours.

Translation: The wall is brilliant and perfect for the border between Scotland and England. Europe always.

Pacal’s photograph is of the city walls of Aigues-Mortes, rising from the marshes of the Carmargue in Languedoc in South-West France. The town’s name provides a clue to its violent past. It shares a violent history with the Scottish Borders, euphemistically referred to as ‘The Rough Wooing”, when the reality indicated serial acts of genocide, as was the case in Languedoc.
