Paging Mel Gibson

The bansturbators strike again:
Kilt wearers could face prosecution if they do not have a licence for their sporran under new legislation which has been introduced in Scotland.

The laws are designed to protect endangered species like badgers and otters, whose fur used to be favoured by sporran makers.

Some folk aren't quite with the full programme:
"Are the police going to take DNA samples from the sporran of every kilted supporter who walks into Hampden?" he asked.
No, they'll want DNA samples from every fan, kilted or not.

(UPDATE: the EU's got previous on this.)

I found I could not comment on the Booby-See article. 
However, if everybody silently killed all the badgers and otters now (the first give TB to cattle, the second eat all our fish)and stuffed them into binliners like we all ought to do with all bats, then the ones which we kill otherwise could have their pelts preserved for the Sporrans of The Future, for the time when we all wake up from this bad dream and can get back to normality.  
In the meantime, kind scientists will have preserved the genomes of these nasty destructive and anti-human-predatory-animals, to satisfy the surviving greenazis whom we decide not to execute upon victory.  
So, we will be able to run badgers, otters and hedgehogs over, all over again, on the roads, in our newly-allowed 4x4s, which of course you need in Scotland as everywhere is difficult and steep and narrow.
