New MSP to take oath in Doric

I am of course not a supporter of the SNP, or its wider aims, but I do for some unknown reason find the idea of their latest addition to the 'wee pretendie Parliament' at Holyrood taking a supplementary oath in Scots Doric, after having taken the oath in English (a legal requirement), rather an attractive one:

"I depone aat I wull be leal and bear aefauld alleadgance tae Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, her heirs and successors anent the law. Sae help me God "
