Subject: Has Scotland found it's proper anthem?

A couple of months ago I heard Sheena Wellington sing Robert Burns'

"A MAN'S A MAN FOR ALL THAT"

("Is there for honest poverty") at the opening of the new Scottish parliament and was struck by how appropriate that song is as an anthem. I mean, we all knew it wasn't going to be FREEDOM COME ALL YE, and it might well have been any run-off-the-mill Jacobite (e.g. BONNIE BANKS O' LOCH LOMOND) or rugby chant (e.g. "Flowers of Scotland"). I suppose "Scots wa hae" would have served the purpose, but the pith o' sense an' pride o' worth are higher rank that a' that

Cheers, Håvard

hmmmm... since when did these messages understand the line breaks? The run-off the mill Jacobite song was meant to be "Bonnie Banks o Loch Lomond"
