Wednesday's BBC's, The Apprentice, presented a nod and a wink to "our" future.
Money-mad Alan Sugar disturbed the 11 remaining contestants on their "day off", issuing them a task to set up a mobile restaurant although, unusually, this was not in London but rather up here, in Edinburgh.
The group, as usual, split into two different teams for the challenge, one named Phoenix, the other Sterling. Team Sterling won, with a £22 profit on their meatballs.
Curiously, Donald Trump, who act's out Sugar's role in the American version of the show was appearing himself on Wednesday, at the Scottish Parliament to discuss his grievances regarding wind farms - something Scotland is again a pioneer of; notwithstanding her "green-ness" in terms of the environment.
As I have noted before, and confess it may be nonsense, my philosophy is that once the global economy fails, somehow an independent Scotland and her new "sterling" (Royal Bank of Scotland ?) will be the backbone of a new, global currency. That's not forgetting the global-king, and the "Stone of Destiny".
