"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

  1. Nice GV and nice that you did not feel to add any words of your own!

    Our 'Alamo' does indeed approach!

  2. A Wee Somg

    Scots, Wha Hae.

    Scots, wha hae wi' Wallace bled,
    Scots, wham Bruce has aften led,
    Welcome to your gory bed
    Or to victorie!

    Now's the day, and now's the hour:
    See the front o' battle lour,
    See approach proud Edward's power -
    Chains and slaverie!

    Wha will be a traitor knave?
    Wha will fill a coward's grave?
    Wha sae base as be a slave? -
    Let him turn, and flee!

    Wha for Scotland's King and Law
    Freedom's sword will strongly draw,
    Freeman stand or freeman fa',
    Let him follow me!

    By oppression's woes and pains,
    By your sons in servile chains,
    We will drain our dearest veins
    But they shall be free!

    Lay the proud usurpers low!
    Tyrants fall in every foe!
    Liberty's in every blow!
    Let us do or dee!

  4. It's perhaps a touch melodramatic Mr W but you're right, it spoke for itself (apart from my one word!).

    Is that an anti-English song by any chance Scunnert? I see Edward's name there again :-) Will you never forgive us? Still, fine sentiments and I'd expect nothing less from brave, patriotic Scotsmen.

    Thanks for the video - horrible.

  5. It is a song of national liberation GV. If only Englishmen would embrace such sentiments their problems would be quickly remedied.

    And yes - horrible.

  6. There's no political gathering point for England though Scunnert. Perhaps if the BNP were the ENP it might be different. I think the English Democrats and the Campaign for an English Parliament have come too late.
