The article encourages people to take a 'smell walk' round their town. Another spoof? I'm not sure any more...

Not surprised with all the scaremongering going on but this is obviously The Gruniads version of an April Fool :)

 

 

O/T Edit: Labour's Andy Burnham suggested this would happen in an interview with Holyrood magazine last September so maybe that's where the idea came from: 

 

“I would feel really genuinely sad if Scotland votes for independence, not just for our own self-interest and in the extra difficulty we would face getting a Labour government in England but I also don’t want to drive up the M6 and get my passport out or have to drive on the right when I want to drive on the left…”
