Prime Minister David Cameron has called for a new respect to be shown in how the UK Government treats the Scottish Parliament and the Welsh and Irish Assemblies.
In a meeting held with the recently expanded 1922 Committee, Cameron announced that it was time for bygones to be bygones and a "New Respect Agenda" to be followed.
"Its high time that we all start giving credit where credit's due....its amazing that, since being granted limited powers, the Haggis Eaters, Tattie Munchers and Leak Gobblers have kept things going rather than the whole thing descending into utter chaos, as was predicted by most of us in the know down here in the civilised part of this green and pleasant land".
The Prime Minister went on "I'm pleasantly surprised that these inbred northerners and westerners haven't destroyed the fabric of society by participating in clan warfare and inter necine strife. Well done them".
Cameron finished off his address by announcing that, in recognition of his Provincial Partners' achievements, he would be rewarding them with an immediate abolition of VAT on all brands of firewater and tobacco".
