I hereby offer my services as Scot-picker for this story. :)

Potentially of interest to you: Section 28 (The 'Keep the Clause' campaign may also be of interest to you but it may make you want to punch people...)

Also you may enjoy the video for Bronski Beat's Small Town Boy which always dredges up vivid memories of being a kid/teenager in the West Coast of Scotland during the late 80s and 90s.
