GUEST,Musket curious Scottish republican socialist songs (40) RE: Scottish republican socialist songs 30 Oct 13


Are you sure it wasn't the people's popular front of Judea?

Songs of struggle are part of our history and heritage. However, the thought of encouraging terrorism through embracing the historical value of song is something to watch out for. Inadvertent as it may be.

Just think. You may get a Republic of Scotland soon enough.

Doubt it will be a Socialist Utopia though.

What with keeping the Royal Family.

And the pound.

And UK defence.

And relying on good old democracy to deliver it. Notwithstanding the old dears in Morningside have every much a vote as Dick Gaughan & co.

But as you say, the songs may be ok in abstract. You may add a song to be written yet. TThe ballad of Simple Salmond. The last verse is the best. The good people of Scotland are writing it next year.
