Wall of Quotes 3

This is a great quote by Sir Walter Scott, lamenting the passing of the Scottish Parliament, a hundred or so years before his time. For those having trouble with the Scots, he's complaining of the lack of accountability now that those who make our laws sit in London. When they were in Edinburgh at least they could be made to account fo their actions. A good quote about the feeling of political helplessness and isloation when you live so far from the centre of power.
