A wind-up merchant, you say ? Surely not yet another one ? The sincerity of his tone had me fooled , and I was seduced by the force of his logic and entranced by his passion. laugh.gif Has Dylan summoned up a big gun from his bowling club or the Horseshoe perchance? Heaven help us all !

"However hate Bowling and Bowling Clubs which are for auld folks."

Apologies for the bowling reference. I was of course thinking of your auld comrade-in-arms, the sadly missed Mr Mathieson. Understandable confusion, you will surely allow.

A fine piece of subtle ambiguity, Mr Jagz, where others may have been tempted to make more coarse and direct comment. Such restraint is admirable and to be commended. tongue.gif

A wind-up merchant ... Has Dylan summoned up a big gun from his bowling club or the Horseshoe perchance?

Or has he allowed one of his personalities to escape his control?
This looks like another case for Prof. Dr. Dr. Tee von Hee Hee tongue.gif

I live in Australia. I have an Australian passport and a U.K. passport. I want to vote in the referendum, but cannot. Why can I not vote? I am Scottish by birth as were all my forebears. The bones of my ancestors lie in the soil and have become the soil of Scotland. I have more than passing interest in the cause of freedom, but cannot vote. This thing is set up by the Scottish National Party, and they say who can vote. What are they afraid of by not allowing me to vote?

Still waiting on an answer why some people think San marino has a voice in the world but Scotland shouldn't.
I even knocked this up to show the difference but i had to zoom right into San Marino because it looked like a speck, and it still does.

Any takers?

[attachment=44988:Where_s_San_marino.png]

Andorra, Luxembourg, Monaco, Cypress, Norway, Iceland and we havent even left western Europe. Whit wee country???

Have you seen the Soldiers in San Marino ?

Wha dare mess wi them. ?

Good mapping.

Mrs. Dylan wants to know if you could do her one of Emerdale ?




And yet they are an internationaly recognised Republic. No threats of invasions or bombings, except of course by the UK during WW2.

If you have an answer to why you think Scotland should not represent itself on the International stage but microstates, many of whome have less populations than our towns never mind country, please let us know as i am genuinely interested.

Well said Farrochie.

When we get our Independence we may well have a few problems at first, but Rome wasn't built in a day, and in time Scotland will sort itself out.

We have heard for years how Scotland is subsidised by the English, if that is true, why are they so anxious to hang on to us.

Scotland gets whatever Government England votes for, so lets take our future into our own hands.

Bought and sold for English gold. angry.gif

Such A Parcel Of Rogues In A Nation

1791: Type: Poem

Fareweel to a' our Scottish fame,
Fareweel our ancient glory;
Fareweel ev'n to the Scottish name,
Sae fam'd in martial story.
Now Sark rins over Solway sands,
An' Tweed rins to the ocean,
To mark where England's province stands-
Such a parcel of rogues in a nation!

What force or guile could not subdue,
Thro' many warlike ages,
Is wrought now by a coward few,
For hireling traitor's wages.
The English stell we could disdain,
Secure in valour's station;
But English gold has been our bane-
Such a parcel of rogues in a nation!

O would, or I had seen the day
That Treason thus could sell us,
My auld grey head had lien in clay,
Wi' Bruce and loyal Wallace!
But pith and power, till my last hour,
I'll mak this declaration;
We're bought and sold for English gold-
Such a parcel of rogues in a nation!
