Yes, I know "outwith" is used frequently in scotland. I lived there for a time, I still find it scans strangely though.
I doubt it's come from "scots" though, since scots is rooted in gaelic and seems unlikely that a very obviously germanic word has come from there.
I expect that outwith was probably in fairly broad use at one time but usage just died off in England.
>Perhaps they should just build a wind farm between Glasgow and Edinburgh along the motorway.
Perhaps, they could put them in big sheds so that no-one could see them?
I was actually referring to the substantially higher government expenditure per head, which is ostensibly provided for the benefit of people in remote areas where the cost of infrastructure is substantially higher - such as the western isles.
Given that they don't want any kind of industry near them I don't see why they should benefit from industry elsewhere. Why can't the efforts of Glaswegians go to improving their own town since they can't be bothered paying their own way in the islands?
>any money made would only make up for money lost from tourism
Surely you're taking the piss?
