Why Did Corby Get All The Scots?

GayandRight links to a fascinating piece in the Daily Telegraph (UK) about the Prison Service relocating an office from the Northamptonshire town of Corby to nearby Leicester, in order to meet their 'diversity' target - Corby being over 90% white, and Leicester... not so much.

Now, it just so happens that Corby is not so very far from my home town, which means I remember the standing joke around the area. A quick disclaimer; this was a long time ago and Britain at that time was very far from politically correct. Readers who are offended by the following joke should read someone else's blog.

Why did Corby get all the Scots, and Kettering get all the blacks?? Because Kettering had first choice.
