Loving Day commemorates the Supreme Court putting an end to anti-miscegenation laws back in 1967, thereby making mixed race marriage legal.

Despite the gravity of this momentous occasion, all I can say is I don’t want my girlfriend getting any ideas. After all, she’s Scottish and I’m English – some think it’s against nature for two very different races to even be in the same room as each other, but thanks to Loving Day it’s allowed to take place free of intolerance, censorship and, most of all, stereotype.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a steaming plate of haggis to consume before the evening’s jig, otherwise the lassie will smack me round the head with a caber.
