However, it gets worse, a lot worse.
Scotland is a small country which has to exist economically by having strong exports (and we have always *had* strong exports).
Here are the figures for some of Scotland's strongest food export sectors:
fish & shellfish down 83%
meat down 59%
dairy down 50%
EU exports in general down 63%
Was that article about this year's Rosenmontag? I can't find a date on the page.
The float (linked to in the article) depicting Theresa May shooting herself in the mouth was a classic.
In the German idiom you shoot yourself in the knee ("ein Schuss ins Knie") rather than in the foot. But both images wouldn't have been as drastic and wouldn't have implied the political suicide she actually did commit.
From an artistic (sculpture) point-of-view it is more difficult to represent someone shooting themselves in either the knee or the foot.
I had the same thought, especially with moving floats where the scultpure has to be reduced to the bare minimum so that even in a crowd the onlookers can grasp the gist instantly.
