Poetry in unusual places: Part 6

11 Dec

Bill Wilson is fast becoming the most pro-poetry MSP in The Scottish Parliament, this week he quoted Burns and Voltaire during this weeks debate on climate change.

From Burns

“The billows on the ocean

The breezes idly roaming.”

from Deluded swain, the pleasure.  And from Voltaire…

“We look to Scotland for all our ideas of civilisation”.

And the debate on climate change you ask?  Well, they all agreed it is a jolly bad thing.
