"The stroke of a pen at the Library of Congress - which rebranded 700 years of Scottish literary tradition as 'English literature' - has in recent weeks generated a spluttering uproar here," Wade writes from Edinburgh, Scotland. "And last week, faced with Celtic fury, the American institution made an undignified U-turn."
Numpty of .... er .... I mean, Librarian of Congress James Billington said the institution would return writers to their former Scottish status. Hoorah for Scottish Robby and his kin!
