Bushes, Haggis and Rights

  2. Unless foliage is integral to the performance of whatever it is that they have been doing, I don't see how the removal of the bushes prevents them from carrying on.

  3. When they say "bushes", to what exactly are they referring ?
    As for Dave, he must be the only Scot who can stand the stuff.
