Wednesday 8 February 2012: Highlanders' revenge

One of the best pubs in the west end of Glasgow, the Lios Mor or Lismore is very traditional and a favourite haunt of the city's population of Highlanders.
It has many good features, not least the urinals in the gents. There are three, each emblazoned with the names of the worst villains of the Highland Clearances - Patrick Sellar, George Granville and Colonel Fell.
A plaque on the wall reads:
"This urinal is dedicated to the three men who participated in the Scottish Highland Clearances.
These men took part in what is now recognised as a form of central government endorsed ethnic cleansing.
Through their greed and bigotry, they and others have been instrumental in destroying a centuries old Scottish Highlands way of life.
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO PAY THEM THE RESPECT THEY ARE DUE."
