    Refuweegeehttp://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/dec/21/syrian-refugees-in-scotland-cold-weather-but-warm-welcome Takes its name from the slang term for a Glaswegian – Weegee. It is the brainchild of Selina Hales, a city native who was prompted by news coverage of Syrians travelling across Europe seeking shelter. Its volunteers are putting together welcome packs, which include a handwritten letter from a local as well as Glasgow-appropriate items including obligatory umbrellas. “I wanted to capture that real Glasgow welcome,” says Hales. “People don’t just want to welcome people but to embrace them and make them feel like a local.”

    Presumably they weren't welcoming them with "a wee dram" and halal haggis, or should that be "Halesal haggis"?

    Vegetarian haggis is a contradiction-in-terms like "drunken Muslim" or "reformist socialist".

    Halal scotch pie shouldn't be difficult, they should really be made out of mutton and you could use lamb or beef suet for the pastry. Halal whisky and scotch eggs could be slightly more problematic.If your feeling the yearning for a good scotch pie, Alan, I can recommend this site:http://www.diyscotchpie.co.uk/our-products
