Worth the wait for your brilliant piece Rod,put nicely but firmly like a lot of us want a united Scotland,light the fiery cross and call the clans together we have an outsider to defeat,alas it wont happen too many read the rubbish in the unionist press.We have the National but its printed for the choir,and it allows the odd (really odd) unionist to make snide comments or some that are banal,its playing fair against a bunch of cheats and so we will lose,unless we learn to play dirty like them and look like we are as clean as them.I think of how Ireland got partial independence and their country partitioned.The Westminster mob and they are a mob,deceived and lied to them Ireland did win the vote for independence but not good enough for those reaping the profits from the island of Ireland and while people starved,and so the empty bellies started a revolution,then the Irish civil war Westminster had a big hand in causing it,in my opinion as my grandfather told me.I see some similarities with our cause here and now,I maybe decrepit but I’d stand(or sit in my wheelchair) with all who will oppose this tyranny of Westminster.I look to those who are smarter than me and I know there are plenty much smarter,to tell us how we can circumvent all the rubbish spouted by the fakers those that have pretended to be for independence but now deliberately cause mischief on the pages of facebook and get some folk confused talk them into hating aye hating,the FM because she wont name the date for the next independence referendum,they wont listen or read that it cant be divulged too early it needs to come when the time is right and the time is not what the odd stirrer wants but as the SNP have taken us this far in 80 years another few wont be a hardship surely the leadership will know when is best. The last/first referendum we were bounced into it because we never expected to win a majority in Holyrood.Sometimes I think a bit of jiggery pokery went on to make us get that majority so that the referendum could be dictated to by the Westminster party and they were ready for forcing the pace of it.Sorry its so long but there might be a kernel of an idea somewhere in it.

Auld Acquaintance

I may not have written anything recently on this blog, given that I have been focussed entirely on writing my book “The Thistle,The Lion and The Unicorn” , but that doesn’t mean to say that I haven’t also been following closely what has been happening on the political landscape.
Indeed I have been having my tuppence worth on a regular basis on my Aye4Scotland Twitter account for those that are into that form of communication.
However with the recent spats and fall outs which have been happening with alarming frequency between Independence supporting factions I feel that it is worthwhile expressing my views on such conflicts in a bit more detail.

In case you haven’t noticed, for quite some considerable time now there has been an all out concerted attack in the mainstream media on everything Scottish and targeting the SNP and the Scottish Government in particular.
Nothing new there…

The Thistle, the Lion and the Unicorn (taster)

13 Jun

Have a sample read folks I’ll be buying it from the minute I know when its published.

Auld Acquaintance

I have ceased blogging to concentrate on writing my book “The Thistle, The lion and the Unicorn”
However here is a taster of the Introduction and first chapter. It is unedited as yet…so this is just the first draft with all its mistakes which I haven’t checked for yet.


The picture on the front cover of this book is the British Royal Coat of Arms. Depicted in it are the English lion and the Scottish Unicorn. In the British Royal Coat of Arms the English Lion takes the dominant side of the shield but the same coat of Arms when used in Scotland the Lion and the Unicorn swap sides with the Unicorn taking precedece.
In the back cover of this book we have the Scottish Royal Coat of Arms which has 2 Unicorns with Scottish Lion crowned on top.


It is in this sybolism which I take for the…

12 May

You have to listen to this,really every question after she answers she has to go back in and say(around fifty times) “well what I’m saying” I have a suspicion about her now,when the rape clause question came up Ruth seemed unable to say the word rape she danced around it,made me wonder if perhaps she had been involved in something so bad that she did to someone ! just pricked a wee thought process.

10 May

Could make a few think of making an extra few quid from a few quid!

Change Checker

Brexit v Independence

20 Apr

Auld Acquaintance


The Control freakery of Theresa May seems to know no bounds.
First she wanted control of parliament so that parliament would not be able to debate anything to do with her Brexit Bill…. She was challenged and lost in the English High Court….But rather than accept that legal decision she chose to appeal it in the Supreme Court and lost again!
Despite losing there…she instead railroaded the Brexit Bill through both houses of  Westminster allowing no room for dissent or alteration. The Lords…worthless unelected peers that they are, attempted to get a couple of amendments…and she basically threatened them do as you are told or you will lose out.. And one thing these codgers care about is their massive daily attendance they backed down.
Not satisfied with that…. she then came up with the lamest of excuses to rip up the 5 year parliament bill which her previous mob…

Tank Commander Colonel Roothie

20 Apr

Auld Acquaintance


Just When You think that things cannot get anymore surreal….
We now have this image of Theresa May conducting her own personal Electoral war against Scots by declaring that in Scotland this election will all be about refusing the right of the Scottish Government to call another Independence Referendum..
And here we are ….Bang on the button….. On April 17th she Instructs the Army Signal Corp to make Roothie a full blown Colonel of the Territorials…. That will fit in nicely with sending Rooth over the top into her Scottish Colony… Ably backed up by her Colonial Minister for Scotland Fluffy Mundell..

You Couldn’t make it up …Could you? Probably Not….As this is really a case of the Truth being stranger than fiction…

So lets whistle together folks to the tune of Colonel Bogey……  or as the troops sang to it in the 2nd World War… “Hitler has only got…
