BBC Question Time Competition - YES WE CAN edition

David Dimbleby presents the topical {?} debate from Falkirk, with Scotland's deputy first minister Nicola Sturgeon MSP, Liberal Democrat secretary of state for Scotland Alistair Carmichael MP, former leader of the Scottish Conservatives Annabel Goldie MSP, Labour's shadow Scottish secretary Margaret Curran MP, co-convenor of the Scottish Greens Patrick Harvie MSP and the singer-songwriter and member of Artists for Independence Eddi Reader

This week is the equivalent of the international fixture period in the premier league. 
That means politics is being played, but no scores apply in this tournament.

Scotland is usually one of the better QT venues. However C@W won't be asking you to phrase 'YES OR NO' in 5 alternative ways.

So the only way to win tonight is to guess the Dimbletie: 1 win awarded for closest to the colour of
the long piece of cloth that is worn around the neck and under a collar and that is tied in front with a knot at the top.

I'll pitch for a St Andrews dark blue with yellow SNP stripes.

The actual official SNP colour is sort of goldy-yellow, so I'll go for godly-yellow with a thistle in the middle.

Dimbletie was black with pink/purple/light green flowers

Closest is Timbo and Taff

So - penalty shoot out.
Fingers on buzzers, first to answer -

"Why did Mr Dimbleby choose a Scorpion for his tattoo?"
