Reg loves Scotland - true

So, where's the Saltire, eh?

Today is, as every proud Scotsman knows, St Andrew's Day and tradition dictates that we at El Reg make over our masthead to celebrate the anniversary. And quite right too, since we are always having a pop at Google for not celebrating important dates appropriately.

However, this year marks the inauguration of a hitherto unknown UK celebration - T-Mobile Day. For this reason, there will be no Saltire adorning the site, although our friends north of the border should rest assured that normal service will resume in 2006.

In the meantime, irritated readers should direct their ire at Google, which once again has failed to acknowledge the significance of 30 November. Carry on. ®
