Over in North Lanarkshire, they're thinking of giving every pupil a suitably-inscribed millennium T-shirt.

In a spirit of ecumenism, education vice-convener Tommy Morgan suggested at the last committee that they should be made of green and blue. "Just as long as they're not made by Umbro," commented councillor Peter Sullivan, referring to the reccent exposure of poor quality in some replica Celtic strips.
