Paying The Price For Nudity In Scotland

So far, Gough, 48, of Eastleigh, Hampshire, has been sentenced to a total of 30 months in prison for letting it all hang out, running up a bill of around £40,000.

The nude dude was again put back in prison yesterday after being arrested last month for leaving Edinburgh’s Saughton jail in the altogether, for the seventh time, and has now racked up court costs of over £60,000, which the taxpayer has had to shoulder.

Tory justice spokesman for Scotland, Bill Aitken, says: “All this nonsense means is that he is back in court and back in prison and is costing the taxpayer a damn fortune.”

Nudism is fine. But in Scotland? What about the midges…
