Made in Scotland

Author(s): Billy Connolly


All roads lead home.'After my knighthood was announced,a woman from the BBC came toGlasgow to interview me. We satdown in a lovely hotel in a nice partof town, and she hit me with her firstquestion- "This must mean a lot toyou, with you coming from nothing?"I looked at her, and I laughed."I did?nae come from nothing,"I told her. "I come from something."I grew up in the tenements ofpost-war Glasgow. I am very proudto be working class, and especiallya working-class Glaswegian whohas worked in the shipyards. I comefrom the working class. And, mostof all, I come from Scotland.Scotland is a unique and wonderfulplace. Its national motto saysa lot about it- Nemo me impunelacessit. A decent translation mightbe- 'By all means punch mein the nose but prepare yourselffor a kick in the arse.?I did?nae come from nothing-I come from Scotland. And thisbook is about why I will always behappy and proud that I do.?
