A new ad seeking a new flatmate for Scotland has appeared in the ‘roomshare’ section of Gumtree.
The spoof ad reads: “Small industrious northern European nation of 5.3million seeks new flatmates as current resident’s behaviour has become unreasonable.”
It stipulates that rent is £200 per-month, but for that bargain price lodgers can expect “nice views” as well as “free university education and medicine” and an “occasionally leaky roof”.
Anyone interested should contact Nic or Eck, although sporty types need not apply.
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
