It’s been a while! Hello again.
I’m as keen as ever to claim Trainspotting for Leith. It’s a local story. Leith disappears in the film, but it all started here. Read all about it in my piece in The Leither .
Then see The Proclaimers take away A Letter from America. It’s the same message. If Leith had two syllables, it would be in the list along with Bathgate, Linwood, Methil, Irvine. In late 1980s Leith, if you had ambition and you wanted a future, the advice was to leave.
