Scotland 'not gay enough' for Clinton Cards's new range

Now I can accept that the local post office in a village such as Auchtermuchty is not, perhaps, an appropriate place to sell gay-themed greetings cards, anymore than it would probably be a suitable place to try and sell Eid or Hannukah cards. There is simply unlikely to be much demand. But it beggars belief to think there wouldn't be a reasonable market for these things in places like Glasgow or Edinburgh. Of course, this article doesn't make clear that this new range of cards from Clinton Cards is being test-marketed across all their stores in England either; it seems more likely that they are being tested initially in the most promising markets such as London, Brighton and Manchester; I daresay in Consett, Northumberland there wouldn't be much demand, or money(?), either. Makes a good headline, though ...
