“An official report on the impact Brexit will have on rural Scotland includes the quote: “We are f*****,” it has emerged.
A document published by Scottish Rural Action (SRA) featured a side banner on page four carrying the statement.
It was one of a number of banners attributed to participants in a workshop which asked them to imagine what newspaper headlines they might expect to see after the UK leaves the EU.
Amanda Burgauer, SRA chairwoman, said the exercise had been used as an “icebreaker” and that several of the participants used “earthy language” in describing their feelings towards Brexit.
The comments are only explained on the following page, saying they had been put forward by those taking part in the workshop event.
Ms Burgauer said she would flag up the “design and layout” issue with the SRA design team. …”
