This morning I am asking a Scottish Question of national importance and significance. Obviously, later this year there will be a referendum to determine whether Scotland remains as part of the United Kingdom or becomes a separate nation.
However, another centuries old Scottish Question quite possibly stirs even greater levels of nationalism and reaction on a visceral level and the answer has even been known to split families due to fundamental differences.
What then could be that important. Well, the critical question is 'Sugar or Salt on your Porridge'? You may well laugh, but my family was one of those with irreconcilable differences!
You'll note I've used two different spellings as this is another hotly contested issue of the 'proper' spelling and even manufacturers can't agree. Most nations have this food in their repertoire or a variant so for anyone who has an opinion and wishes to share their views I actually have two questions:
1. How should 'proper' porridge be made?
2. How should the word be spelt?
Red sat at the end of the sofa tasting the air and wondering if any of it might head his way.
