National stereotypes

I have been known to peruse the occasional book (!) and am looking forward to the Edinburgh International Book Festival in August. According to Business AM (Registration and payment required - this is Scotland after all), Bill Clinton was paid $100,000 for speaking at the Hay-on-Wye festival in Wales but speakers at the larger Edinburgh gathering get a good Calvinistic flat fee of £100.
