Steve I Origin: Flower of Scotland (Roy Williamson) (104* d) RE: Flower of Scotland 06 Aug 99


As an Ex-Pat Englishman, now living in America, I'd like to add my 5 cents worth if I may. Even though some may not actually believe it, this Englishmen for one agrees 100% with CES. The poll tax was probably the worst thought out, most unpopular tax ever. To have been pushed through like it was displayed the absolute arrogance of a political party, and a leader who in the end turned from democrat to dictator. Being a pretty much lifelong "Tory" (Translation: Conservative) I had always up to that point supported the party. Being also a career military man, I believed the Tories were better for us. However the Poll Tax, or whatever caused me to change my allegiences overnight. I now live here, happy in my decision to quit the country of my birth. However I wish Scotland, her people every success for their futures. Once again in agreement with CES, I think Scotland deserves a more forward thinking, rather than historical, National Anthem. Sooner rather than later, it is hoped. PS Long live Football.
