Rabbie balances the books

Today is the anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns. The Burns legacy is apparently worth £157 million a year to the Scottish economy. Yesterday I reported that Councillor Daphne Sleigh thought that a modern-day Robert Burns might have become a Tory cabinet minister. I suggest that he would have made an excellent Chancellor of the Exchequer:
Burns died with debts of £14 and assets of just £15
An example to us all.
